Here's the scenario. Say I buy a mailing list of 1000 contacts and all these 1000 contacts are going to be receiving the same general email. Is it best practice to import all 1000 contacts in CRM and send an email to them from CRM or should I be using a third party service like MailChimp to send out the common email and if people show interest then I import those specific contacts in CRM?
Please feel free to throw your ideas
