Buy Targeted Email Lists – The Complete Guide

Getting in front of your target audience to promote your products or services used to be difficult. But times have changed for the better. These days, it’s relatively easy to reach your ideal prospects quickly through an email marketing campaign and online display ads, by acquiring a targeted email list.


Reach over 250 million consumers by email

Stirista is a leading provider of top-quality consumer email lists. Our 250 million+ consumer emails have been triple-verified for deliverability. It has also been matched with 305 different occupations and 190 million+ social handles which enables us to build custom intent audiences. This helps you narrow down to your ideal customers with great precision.

We also have competitive conquesting capabilities. We can isolate your competitors' followers on social media, remove all PII (personally identifiable information) and make this audience segment available for targeting.

Stirista was the first to make deterministic social insights available outside the originating social platform.

Our segmentation capability by consumer occupation is especially effective for selecting targets. Here is a sampling of the occupations you can choose from, along with the counts available currently.

  • Clerical / White Collar: 8,398,633 emails

  • Financial Professional: 677,712 emails
  • Self Employed: 474,563 emails
  • Student: 437,612 emails

These email segments can be broken down to more specifics, as well. For example, Managerial could be narrowed down to General Manager, Marketing Manager, Property Manager, Branch Manager, District Manager, Regional Manager, and others.

Likewise, Medical Professionals could be broken down into Chiropractor, Dentist, Medical Assistant, Registered Nurse, Pharmacist, Physical Therapist, Optician, Optometrist, Psychologist, and so on.

3 options you have when acquiring email lists

1.) Rent an email list (the least popular option)

Email list rental is a great option if you don’t wish to maintain your own database. Stirista can help you send your email campaigns as you need them. Simply describe your target market for us, and we will create the most accurate segment for you. We also help you with the email creative, if needed.

When an email deployment is combined with a great offer and beautiful website experience, you can build your own opt-in email database, thereby leveraging our large email database to build yours.

2.) Buy targeted email lists (the most popular option)

Purchasing the list of emails of your target audience is a solid investment. With this option, you own the records and can use them as often as you like.

As discussed above, you can use the data for direct customer acquisition campaigns through email, online display, and/or direct mail. You can also use the email addresses to target social media campaigns with precision.

3.) License an entire email database from a data provider like Stirista (data licensing)

When you license our data, you get unlimited use of our entire email database plus continual ongoing verification and updates. You can put it to work in as many campaigns as you want.

If you are thinking about starting your own marketing agency or data company, data licensing is a great way to get into the game and service your clients with ease, at a reasonable cost.

However, before entering into any data licensing partnership, ensure that you properly vet the quality of the email lists.
