When buying an email marketing campaigns it’s important to note that whatever package you purchase is how much emails they will send to their optin subscribers and not necessarily guaranteed traffic to your website. Before using a service like this I high recommend using and testing a good catchy ad title for your campaign.
This post is also in regards to optinwebservices.com, directmarketingoptin.com and doubleoptinoffer.com because they all seem to be the same online company.
Another thing I recommend is having a landing page to capture peoples email addresses. similar to this one click here. You want to be able to contact these users again because online people will usually forget about your website in a short period of time and if you hope to increase traffic to your website and also get sales long term you want to make sure you get the emails of those targeted visitors that land on your page.
Double Optin Media Review
Now I must admit looking at this site it does not look trust worthy. Reason being usually these types of email advertising sites usually disclose where you will be getting your increased traffic from. Double Optin Media has chosen not to answer this question directly instead if you look in their FAQ section found at http://www.doubleoptinmedia.com/faq.htm#3 it says when asked
We generate over 75k new leads per day from our various websites!
These leads are generated by Pay-per-click, SEO, Co-reg, and Newsletters.”
Also when asked can I send a test campaign they immediately want you to fork over $49 pretty pricey for “test campaign”
Yes, our smallest package is the 300k recipients for $49. You can test your
offer with that option!”
Final thoughts on DoubleOptinMedia
When it comes to these types of companies for me I like to know that this company has its own network and I would like to also know the name of the network. Because again there’s no guarantee that the recipients will even open their emails. So an email sent to 300,00 could easily turn into useless email campaign if Double optin Media has one of those useless email lists that many people have. You will hear allot of people say the power is in the list but this only true if that list receives emails of useful information. If an opt in subscriber of double optin media is constantly receiving spam or being told to buy something every time they receive an email from Double Optin media logically what do you think will happen. Typically after being told to buy, buy, buy start to ignore those emails (unless of course those subscribers are being paid to open the emails but that’s something else entirely). That being said…
Still yet I would like to give Double Optin Media the benefit of the doubt. If you’ve used Double Optin Media I would like to hear your experience with them.
I’ve recently been testing campaigns in different areas to expand my business and I’ve got some great news for those of you who did not have a pleasant experience with double Opt In Media Click Here to read the post please leave me your feedback also.

I ran a test campaign with Double Optin Media and here is the results:
This worked out to be about 9 cents a click which is n=better than most of my AdWords campaigns.
I liked their service enough to try it again and I will probably run a third test campaign before making my final decision.
I was able to confirm these numbers independently.
As to my recommendations. I do not have any yet.
thanks for your input Paul
I just ran a test campaign for 900,000 to their Business Opportunity Seekers list. Here is a snapshot of the stats:
Start Date: 8/25/2010
Total Amount Sent: 900,000
Total Amount Opened: 189,614
Total Clicks Received (CTR): 573
Now according to them, 573 people clicked on my link. However, when I go to look at my stats in the back office, only 271 clicks are accounted for and the 302 remaining clicks did not come up on the report. The system I use has built in click fraud so this is a mystery to me.
CONVERSIONS: There were no conversions out of the 271 clicks which should have given me at least (3)three conversions.
GEO TARGET: Also, with the country targeting, More than 50% of the clicks that came in were from other countries that I did not specify. I specifically requested US,CA,UK. Clicks came in from all over the globe.
I agree with the person that wrote this review and the money is in the list but you must have a responsive list that has not been overused. This was my second attempt to try their services and it was a complete disappointment.
I sent several emails to customer service as they did not give the Google Bonus nor did they give the 10,000 targeted pop-up visitors like they said they would.
In all honest opinion, I did not break even on any of my orders, the targeting option was incorrect, the bonuses were not given, and the support does not respond back to you.
I opened a dispute with my credit card company because of these factors which points to the fact that this group is very shady. I also checked the WhoIs and the domain is protected and it is only registered for (1)one year. They just put the site up in March 2010 of this year.
Now looking at all of what I just shared, I would recommend finding someone else to do your business with. Because with those kinds of numbers to a targeted list, the conversions should be through the roof and they are not.
Thank you for allowing me to vent.
I am going to trust you and move one, they havent called me back after many messages. I requested to talk to them before i used the service.
Do you recommend anyone?
I recommend building your list on your own using Pay Per Click marketing. Thats the only way i personally know how to target my subscribers effectively. also you learn a lot more and gain better prospects. I know to many of you what i’m saying seems like the long way but down the road it makes you much more smarter. like in google there are times i pay less to nothing to build my list and remember these customers are people searching for what i have. Also Facebook is slowly bing i really like using Bing the conversion rate at bing subscribers has been top notch. Yahoo on the other hand has not been good to me at all because my targeted keywords are very competitive there.
We had a similar experience this summer as Eldon.
We purchased the 300,000 email list for $49. It generated a number of clicks according to their counter, but our Google Analytics showed quite a bit fewer clicks than their counter claimed.
In addition, roughly half the clicks came from international locations, according to our Google Analytics, even though we ordered a list from U.S.A. and Canada only.
And as with Eldon’s experience above, we had zero conversions. Not a single sale.
They did not return a single call when I left messages. They were slow to return email questions. And their answers were usually short, vague, and evasive.
I would not recommend them at all. We will not use them again, and neither should you.
I have to agree with Jon and Eldon. Avoid OptinServices (also known as EmailMarketing) and their website LiveInteractiveMedia.com at all costs. At $99 for 900,000 e-mails, I originally thought that it was too good to be true, especially when the majority of the other opt-in e-mail advertising services are charging around $300 or higher for their services.
When you call OptinServices, you are always directed to voicemail, regardless of which day, or what time of day, you call. Even when you leave a message, they never call you back. The only time I got an answer was when I sent their support team an e-mail, and they told me that they get so many calls that they’re unable to answer the phone. But at the same time, the person, named John S., who seemed to be the only one replying to my e-mails, never answered any of my questions regarding their services.
Also, avoid this other company called Target Audience Online. They are a Canadian-based opt-in e-mail advertising company that is just as much of a scam as OptinServices. When you go to place an order with them, they require you to fax them a bunch of personal information that is none of their business. I was about to order their package of $99 for 1,000,000 e-mails. They charged my credit card, then told me afterwards that I needed to fax them photos of my driver’s license, my credit card, my signature and a bill addressed to my name. And this was even though my credit card was valid and they had already charged it. Can you believe the nerve they had to do this? I refused to provide them with this information and I had to contact my credit card company to have them remove the charge.
OptinServices and Target Audience Online – two e-mail advertising companies you should avoid at all costs.
Now recently, I’ve been talking with another company whose website is Route72.com. Their prices start from $750 and go up from there, but they’ve been around since 1999 and when you call them, you get to speak to the President directly. No low-level employees, no supervisors. Just speaking straight to the man at the top. I’m debating signing up with them and will let you know how it goes.
i dont think it is fair they take the piss with people money and get to hide
there is the person behind this

Here is is June 2012 and I wish I had found this site before placing my order of 2,000,000 with a bonus of an additional 2,000,000 for $179.00 Ordered on 6/13/12 campaign was supposed to start 6/15/12. 6/16/12 had to send an email to get it started (If thats what you want to call it). As of today 6/17/12 stats are
Oh and by the way the 3rd party tracking site (campaignctr.com) where you check your stats, It’s registered by the same people. So, how easy is it for them to alter/falsify those stats they are providing.
And now they are doing business as optindatalist.com
It is June 30th and I ordered the full 5 million with the double special. I am assessing about 50 vendors and I choose this one as first. Cost me $395 for this.
I am a professional direct response copy writer agency owner and I get excellent response rates. But even with dismal results at .01 percentage rates the results from this service indicate it is a total failure.
I have a professional capture page with a emotionally charged celebrity video for a free registration with very limited information required.
I own a long term professional marketing firm and we have our own tracking systems, codes, cookies etc.
Their tracking site shows the following:
Start Date: 6/28/2012
Total Amount Sent: 6,954,347
Total Amount Opened: 1,166,622
Our tracking shows
Email opened: 0
CTR: the unique web address only in our email: 20
This is what you should expect with the worse results:
With 1.166 million email’s opened at least a .01 click through rate
Equals: 11,000 visitors not 20
Conversions (a free sought after and celebrity endorsed service) @.01
Equals: 100 registrations.
I suspect funny business.
I have also been conned by these guys currently trading under optindatalist.com with their clearly phoney tracking system at campaignctr.com. Bought the 4 million package at $179.00, out of a supposed 1 million+ emails opened, their system showed something like 100 clicks, obviously no sign ups or sales as they’re fake hits, alarm bells we’re ringing ‘scam’ before I’d even purchased, but I thought I give em a shot.
optindatalist.com / campaignctr.com is slearly a scam that uses a fake ‘ticker style’ tracking system to give you the impression that real people are receiving your email, then they run some IP generating software to give you some real-looking hits (mine showed avg visitor time-on-page of 00:00:00 – i.e NOT human visitors).
I also played ’email tennis’ with someone called ‘John S’ who refused to refund, avoided most direct questions and pushed the ‘we dont sell visitors’ angle, refusing to admit his fake service.
A clever scam, Ill give them that, I dont usually fall for these, but on this one he/they got me.
They’ve also spammed the search engines to filter our their suspects seeing any real reviews (I was lucky to find this page with you guys and your legitimate reviews).
IF YOU HAVE GIVEN optindatalist.com, campaignctr.com, John S, OR WHATEVER TRADING NAME THEY ARE USING AT THE TIME OF READING THIS, GO TO YOUR BANK ASAP TO DISPUTE AND REVERSE THE CHARGE. ALSO WRITE A QUICK KEYWORD-RICH REVIEW IN A COUPLE OF PLACES ONLINE TO HELP OUT FUTURE MARKETERS AVOID THEIR TRAP.
These scammers are taking legitimate Internet Marketers money and need to be reported and stopped. All the best guys!
