How It Works


1. Audience identification & data sourcing

We help you define your ideal customer profile and then we reach out to various data vendors to purchase contacts within your exact scope.

2. Data processing

We use a stack of data processing tools to identify the highest quality contacts within a set of purchased data.

3. Activation

We take the best data within a sourced data set and add those to your list in small quantities each day. This helps us control for negative behaviors (e.g., spam complaints) and quickly identify which contacts are going to keep engaging with your content.

4. Audience management

We help you manage your newsletter segments to ensure your engagement stays healthy and identify who is most likely to respond to your offers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you make the newsletter content too?

Yes! For an additional fee we can also create the newsletter content in addition to bringing our growth strategies.

How do you source data?

We work with a variety of data vendors to find the one that has the best match to your newsletter recipient specification. These vendors have a wide range of data attributes that can support B2B, B2C, and nonprofit newsletters.

Will my engagement still be high with this strategy?

Yes! We'll add high quality contacts to your list and we help you manage the list segments to ensure you have high engagement and good deliverability. While this means that you'll rarely be able to use all of your contacts, it does mean you can grow quickly, inexpensively, and reach the contacts who are responding the most to your content.

Is this system compliant with privacy and marketing laws?

Yes. All of our practices are compliant with CAN-SPAM and FTC regulations. If you're contacting individuals in one of the growing number of states with new privacy laws, we'll also provide relevant compliance assistance. For most smaller businesses and smaller newsletters, only the basic regulator requirement will apply.

Do you grow newsletters with non-U.S. audiences?

No. We only offer this service in the United States currently.

Does your process work with the new bulk-sending requirements from Google and Yahoo?

Yes. We leverage enterprise-level deliverability tools to make sure you stay on good terms with major email providers like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, and others.

How much do you charge per month?

Fees vary based on how quickly you want to grow. Our smallest package starts at just $1,500 per month.

Does your team offer broader email marketing services?

How did you develop this growth system?

We worked with a variety of major publishers over the last 2 years learning the ins and outs of growing email lists with purchased data. We've got our process down to a reliable system that can benefit nearly any organization looking to grow their newsletter.
