Just say no!

Honestly you don't want your domain marked for Spam.  Your better off spending your time and money and effort on good content and getting folks that are interested in your product to opt into a list.

joewevans is right, you don't want to get listed as a "spammer" but if your smart about how you approach it, you can get a targeted list from infousa.com. They can help you do it smartly, but whatever you do, run split tests and track your results so you can determine the most effective sales copy for your market which will help you develop a "control."

Good advice. Don't do it.
