Hi and Welcome to this Article,
As important as it is to have a list it is just as important how you go about building it. Please give careful thought to what your about to read. Take this opportunity to learn from mistakes I made.
These are methods you definitely wonít have my endorsement Ė or even your own, for that matter, when you discover how flawed these list building methods can really be.
Buying Bulk Mails
Sure, you have definitely come across ads that read: ď1,000,000 email addresses for $29.99Ē. And these bulk mail companies can even offer you these names in a CD at your doorstep.
Sure, having 1,000,000 email addresses of subscribers is cool and often sounds too good to be true. Well, thatís TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE alright!
What many do not really know is that these bulk companies harvest the email addresses using robots and other wares on the Internet. Thatís how the 1,000,000 email addresses come about, whatever the amount is.
Now, the really awful part is that if you purchase the so-called 1,000,000 names even at a low price, not only is it a waste of money, you are risking being accused of spamming.
That is so possible, because of the 1,000,000 names, no one knows you or even ask to be subscribed to your mailing list.
On top of that, not all 1,000,000 email addresses are really in use because a portion of them can either be own by the same owners (one owner can own more than 1 email accounts) or are obsolete.
When you read such ads again, tell yourself that itís a waste of money.
This used to be the hip and happening in the early 2000s, but FFAs no longer work today, since FFA businesses are no longer viable and are solely set up to benefit their operators.
Thus when you hear of FFA, you will do well to refrain from it, because apart from submitting your ad or message to so-called 1000s of sites for FREE, you have unknowingly signed up to be on the operatorís ďspam listĒ.
This is yet another tempting offer that sounds too good to be true. I wonít go into the details of how guaranteed traffic really works, but do remember that itís a rather tricky offer.
Guaranteed traffic offers can go like ď100,000 visitors for $29.99Ē. While it is true that you can get 100,000 visitors to your website, ultimately you wonít be getting any sale or even decent subscribers.
This is because the traffic operator gets your traffic by popping up windows on other web sites, and loading your web site into these windows.
These windows containing your web site will sit below the current window of an Internet surfer who is looking at another web site in his window above yours, therefore the window containing your web site is in a pop-under window.
Remember that you will also be getting untargeted traffic, people who are not willing to buy either.
These are just 3 examples of what you want to stay away from. There are others but I find these 3 the most damaging to you as a list builder.
Again I ask you to consider this advice and take heed. Till next we meet may you prosper.
To Your Success
