How to extract email addresses?
Email marketing is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to promote your products and services. If you are not using email marketing, you are not reaching a significant portion of your prospective clients. But how do you start, if you don't have knowledge of email marketing? OK, let's start with some basics.
Obviously, you need a list of emails. More email addresses you have, more people you are going to reach, and more money you will make. So, all we need is a bunch of emails, right? Not quite. You don't need just any email addresses. You have to know your target audience. If you are selling lingerie and perfume, you don't want any men's email addresses. Then you have to figure out what age range is most appropriate for your products. Are your products very expensive? Then you have target people with very high income level. Now you get the idea.
So, how do you get "right" email addresses? In some cases, you can buy them. In other cases, you have to extract email addresses yourself. And you will need appropriate software tools, unless you want to cut and paste every single email address manually.
There are different types of email harvesting software based on the media they gather emails from.
