Safelists offer another way to get your message in front of people for
little or no money. If you are willing to spend some time reading email
messages you can have the favor returned.
However, marketing with safelists can be a total waste of time if
you do not do it right. In this article we will discuss 3 things you
should know how to do do before you start safelist marketing.
1. Set up a separate email account with GMail and then use it to
receive messages from other marketers. Hotmail and Yahoo offer you to
many problems with spam and you will not receive the email messages you
want to see.
Why do you want to spend time reading emails? Here is why!
2. Join credit based safelists that reward you for opening your
mail. Read the messages to earn credits and in turn create
opportunities for your email to be read. The more credits you have the
more messages you can send.
Much like traffic exchanges, and other forms of internet marketing,
safelist marketing becomes a number game. With credit based safelists
even an average ad with an average title will get looked at because
your audience is trying to create credits!
This is good for you as long as you have plenty of credits built
up. You can spend your money and buy credits or you can spend your time
and earn them reading emails if you are working with a credit based
Also by looking at the email of others you may learn a thing or two
about what make a good heading and a good email message. By paying
attention to what catches your eye you will get ideas of your own that
will help you get read more as well.
If you believe in sending out good vibes, or you reap what you sew,
then reading other people's emails is the right thing to do if you want
yours read. This seems fair and it is.
3. People marketing on Israelites are looking for traffic.
Therefore why not market traffic generation products to them. Capture
their name and email, and then follow-up with other things you sell. By
taking this approach you build a list for future marketing efforts and
you accomplish something that will do you good in the future.
Approaching marketing with safelists with these 3 things will make your time and money more well spent.
