Please suggest me Which is best way to maintain the data:

There're few plugins to storage it on WordPress database. I recommend you save as users.

I believe one of these plugins will help you:



To send emails, you might use an Email Marketing provider, like Mailchimp. In this case you can import all the users to your mailchimp account with this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp-sync/

PS: You can search some more useful plugins for MailChimp or something else up here: https://wordpress.org/plugins
