Are email lists contrary to wa rules?
I'm gradually working up a strategy to flesh out my site, and would like to see if someone can clarify a rules issue. I'm sure many here are building email lists as part of their marketing strategy, with the intent to market WA and other niche related items to their list members.
Does this run contrary to the WA no spam rule #10 and #12 at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/wealthy-a...
10. Asking for personal contact information
12. Soliciting communication outside of the Wealthy Affiliate platform
How do we build a list (asking for personal contact information) and sell or otherwise communicate with that list (communication outside the Wealthy Affiliate platform) without running afoul of those rules?
Can it be 'legally' done if the email list being built is to secure email addresses of those interested in affiliate marketing? Can communications with a list member continue after that member has become a Premium member? If no communications are possible to a member of the email list who became Premium, can it resume if they drop their Premium membership?
If an email list member becomes a Premium member at Wealthy Affiliate, is there an Wealthy Affiliate API we can tap to ensure outside communication to an email list member is discontinued?
Apologies for the run on of question after question, but building the email list and membership area (and integrating the two) is a fair amount of work, and I don't want to be banned for my efforts.
Thanks for taking the time to read, evaluate, and respond!
