Using Mailing Lists

Another great place to find customers is in mailing lists. Mailing lists are a little different from newsgroups because they foster discussion through email rather than on the Usenet. These lists require direct subscription in order for someone to participate. Users send an email message to the list and include a command (such as "subscribe") in the body or subject line that initiates the subscription. Members receive messages posted to the list by other members and join the discussion.

Tip

There are two major search engines that provide links to many of the mailing lists that exist on the Internet. The best one is Liszt, located at www.liszt.com. It contains over 90,000 listings. There is also the List of Lists located at catalog.com/vivian/interest-group-search.html.
