    Bert, what’s your view on this kind of scenario:
    I have an IT product or service that I wish to suggest to you.
    I query the AUNIC registry database.
    it gives me this info:

    if I do a little further research and determine that Andrew Egan is the director of said company, I could imply that since he is a director, and since he is listed as a Technical Contact for the registered domain, and since the service I’m offering relates to emails for that domain, and that this address is conspicuously published, I can send email because it’s relevant.

    what if I was to do a search for another domain name and I find this: (which I’ve edited)

    the tech contact’s real name is listed on their website as a co-owner.
    they are listed as at echnical contact for the domain.
    A further search for their real name @theirdomain.com finds a posting on facebook with a job and their proper email address.

    Would you say that’s conspicously published ? :)

    If they’ve listed it on Facebook then it looks like you are in the clear. Generally speaking, it needs to be on their own website, or brochure, or LinkedIn profile or a place relating to their own business.

    Andy,

    I cant see your average Spam’er going to that much hassle, but could I suggest that if that is the method you propse for sending out commercial emails, that you consult ACMA prior to the undertaking.

    So I have a list of websites I would like to contact for links, they are good websites in my industry.

    How do i go about emailing them without getting hit for spamming on my email?

    Do I have to write each email from scratch?

    I use outlook.

    Hi Graham I’ve just noticed your post and read a bit of feedback and the first thing I would say is. You might want to hold off emailing these website straight off.

    If you’ve not prior relationship with them there’s a good chance your email wil go unnoticed or acknowledged anyway.

    Instead you need to begin to build a relationship with each.

    Follow each on Twitter, Facebook etc – Add each to a separate twitter list so you can monitor their feed

    Share their posts occasionally – ones you think are right for your audience

    Comment on their blogs, respond to their questions on social media etc

    Then reach out and send a complimentary email don’t ask for anything yet

    Finally reach out and ask for help, that might be to ask them to share one of your posts, ask for a guest post opportunity or a backlink to a relavant article.

    This might seem like a long winded approach but why would some one throw you a line if you haven’t don’t anything for them. Whats in it for them to link to your website.

    Hi Graham,

    Don’t worry about the spam. If you write a nice personal email with a soft pitch, nobody is going to complain.

    You can use mail merge process to generate a large number of customised emails or use something like ToutApp, Yesware or Sidekick to customise a large number of emails.

    On another note, simply asking for a link will have a very low chance of success (probably zero) unless you have a very valuable resource or a clear benefit to offer to your target.

    Brian Dean has some interesting methods such as Moving Man to alert site owners about broken links or outdated resources then asking for the link. He even has a great email script you can use. Have a look:

    Please note I am not affiliated with Brian Dean and Backlinko in any way.

    All the best.

    I am sorry I didn’t realise about the guidelines. I can confirm that I have absolutely no affiliation with the linked resource, just wanted to share it as excellent and tested SEO advice.

    It doesnt matter if you write a direct email or a “nice personal”, if it has a sales pitch and it doesnt meet the guidelines it is spam
