The IronClad Diary Thread Hey there Mailer forum! Itâ€™s QuicknRandom back for some more fun and games. This time Iâ€™m posting a diary about my adventures with the Ironclad platform. Starting this week I will be getting set up with this platform and CPA/PPC networks that are integrated within the platform itself. My experience has been very minimal in the emailing scene. Moving from the lowly Interspire mailing software to a legitimate bulk mailer like Ironclad is a large step for me. This forum has given me a ton of information and Iâ€™ve learned a lot through reading the threads here. My way of giving back to the forum is this diary and the potentially valuable information it will contain for anyone new to the emailing world. Wish me luck! Too lazy to read my intro? Here are the cold hard facts: -1 dedicated server from Burst.net (comes with 5 ips) - $99.95/month -Iron clad platform â€“ Software that will be handling my mailing -Crush Ads network- Network thatâ€™s integrated with Ironclad to easily create drops -Currently signing up and reviewing Adknowledge agreement -100k- Double opt in biz op data from reliable source -Domains temporarily registered with godaddy but soon to be moved to namecheap for ease with their API Game plan: One of the best thread on mailer forum is the one available here: http://www.mailerforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=998 Push Send and mx10 give exactly the advice needed to mail to the GI data. What are you waiting for? READ IT! To do list: -Familiarize myself with Ironclad platform and how it works from the training video - Research tools that can help me monitor my ip space like http://multirbl.valli.org/ (If you know of any other tools, please feel free to post a reply or PM me the link) - Buy a /27 allocation of ips to mail from - Buy data from sources or possibly encounter a wild revshare - Make the monies! So how much does all of this awesome stuff cost? Ironclad- $600/month Server - $99/month Data - $?/month /27 -$18/month domain - $3/day (.info rotated everyday) x30 = $90/month $807 is the total for this month My budget is $1000 so I have $193 for data but I won't get any good data for that amount...or would I? Stay tuned for the next diary entry titled "QnR and the search for quality data"
