Here's my current situation:
I used to own a consulting business. I have many contacts but not sure how I would go about telling them about my new startup beta software.
It's been at least several months since we've done business. When I went into full time development mode, I shut down my consulting business website but google Apps gmail is still enabled. I felt there was no need to continue communicating with them if I didn't have time to provide any useful services.
Here's my dillema:
Should I bother contacting leads whom I fail to close? What about few clients who were not 100% satisfied with my consulting? Should I hit em up again?
Do I send an email from myconsultingbusiness.com or mynewstartup.com ? I'm hesitant to send email from mynewstartup.com because
A) I need to build relationships again, they might know who I am anymore. B) Not sure if my emails will reach their inbox. Since in the past, Google Apps didn't deliver some of my emails.
In addition, how would I mass send out emails to my contact list in Google Mail? Would Google flag my email as spam when recipient field has couple hundred email addresses?
Should I send email on one on one basis? It will take a lot of time to do this.
Should I use Aweber instead?
