I'd like to ask you about opt-in email lists. If you don't have your own opt-in database where can you get opt-in targeted list that work?

In my opinion and experience buying someone else’s database comes with many pitfalls. Potentially your are better off with 10 legitimate optins than a 100 who have not really given permission to be part of your list.
All offers I've seen and tried don't work and you are flirting with danger!
Despite this I recently worked with a client where we could get away with buying a targeted database. Their product and service was very very very unique and had they previously built credibility with this audience, from sample trials the target audience had a high acceptance about being approached with their information. In this praticular case we had a high conversion from that database.
In a nutshell do you have a compelling offer and can you find a database targeted enough towards your market? If not, you may annoy the hell out of any potential clients and ruin any opportunity to sell to them in the future.
Hope this helps.
