    Does collecting niche emials and sending them emials for marketing purpose is valid?

    I have a San Diego based web design and development client. He is kind of new in the market and wants
    to do some email marketing.

    My query is is this valid and right way to

    "collect local email id's from the local business websites and then send them welcome emails as
    neighborhood and explaining them the set of services this web development firm is offering to them"

    Any suggestion to make this email campaign a success?

    Spam, pure and utter spam, dont do it.

    Email Marketing is just that another word for spam and yes one of my pet hates. Any company that makes first contact that way for me gets the cold shoulder (at best). In bad cases where they wont leave me alone I have taken things further but this is not the place to discuss that.

    You should only email clients or potential clients if they have requested to be contacted that way and you must give them a way of stopping the emails. Failing to follow these very simple polite rules will open you up to so much abuse I cant begin to explain.
