Email Marketing - Address List

If you are going to buy an address list from a third party company then always ask and ensure all recipients on that list have actually opted in to receive emails from third parties such as yourself. 

It is good practice to ask the company selling the list to you for a small subset of the list before purchasing so you can test it.
