    I've been approached by a company looking to market my forum niche related products via email to my members.

    I've 3 motorcycle forums, the largest with around 7000 members, and in total over 10,000 members.

    I can design and send it to my 10,000 members (using Sendy via Amazon SES to send bulk mail). Has anyone and idea of how much I should charge for this?

    How long is a piece of string.

    What are they selling? How much margin do they make on it? What do they sell it for? How much would 10k targetted users cost them elsewhere?

    Our newsletters look like this https://www.avforums.com/pages/newsletter/ and people should charge as much as they can get for sending a newsletter.
    Look around to find out what other people charge for newsletters. It will vary, but don't undersell yours. If you let it go for pennies, it will only be worth pennies to that same customer next time.
