Email-list.com provides email marketing and social media tools for businesses. Recently the company announced an Email List API that gives visitors to your website access to counts and quotes on email lists.
You simply plug the REST API code into your existing website and from there, visitors can order email lists directly in a few steps. They simply select whether they want a business or consumer list, indicate the geographic location for the recipients (you can search by city, country, state, or zip code), then review and place the order. The company says in most cases, it will fulfill the order within the hour.
The standard format for most email lists is CVS and TXT. Email-list.com will also format a database in a My SQL Dump for an additional charge.
Once someone places an order, the company sends a download link. Most orders are fulfilled within minutes but custom lists, which are batched every couple of hours, can take up to a day to process, depending on the order.
The company says its API is of the same high standards as its email lists. Company founder Joe Chive writes:
“Our cutting-edge API is perfect for those companies that need the most current business, consumer, and dynamic data in real time. Use it to enhance your customer file, view your data on a map, and find out who your customers really are."
Unlike other companies that rent their database to you for a one-time use, Email-list.com gives you the data so that you can use it over and over again.
If you have any concerns about where the emails come from or spamming people on your list, Email-list.com says its email lists are strictly opt-in and permission based.
