I'm domino. Ive been reading many many posts on this forum over the past few months, familiarizing myself with best practices for high volume email marketing. I'm nearing my first venture in compliant email marketing, which I am carefully planning and budgeting. Here's my plan generalized. Buy my data. I'm planning on purchasing a data feed with over 10mm records in several niches. Buy a dedicated server. I already have a place in mind that hosts my web server. Comes with 16 IPs. Buy 10 brandable domains in a few big niches. A few generic sounding domains. Buy Interspire email marketer. Set up IEM on the server on a domain and IP that will never be mailed off of. Set up a domain/ip to blast 500k and proccess bounces. Set up first ip/domain to be warmed up. Send 1k first day over 24 hours. Send 5k second day over 24 hours 10k 15k 20k 25k 30k 40k 50k etc and plateau somewhere around 250k a day Im going to be running a duplicate of this proccess on another domain/ip at the same time. Thats the gist of my plan. I'm not mentioning rdns, feedback loops and the offers I'm sending. A couple questions though. Is an aged domain going to be important during this warming up proccess? I would prefer aged domains but I'm going to end up buying all the stuff I need at the same time so I'm going to want to start emailing right away. Do I reeeaaally need to wait 30 days to email on a domain? Is my plan for warming up ips too aggressive? Should I be sending less? More? Ramp up slower? I'm trying to hit the ground running and make this count. I realize this will be a long learning proccess Nice meeting you all!
