Key Coding Your Ads:
Tracking your ads response rate will be key to your marketing success. Once you test your ads and determine which ad is pulling most responses, you can easily test which classified ad sites are producing results as well. This will save you a lot of valuable time by only placing your ads at classified ad sites that produce results.
1. Make a list of classified ad sites you intend to post your ad.
2. Number list of ad sites.
3. You can key your ad using subject of your email. Many times, if you ask for a certain "subject" description, it may not be provided. To avoid this problem you can add a simple code to your email tag.
This code should contain your autoresponder address and will automatically fill in subject with your ad key when clicked on. The "cl1" stands for classified ad site number one. The second ad site you have listed should be coded as cl2 or classified ad site number two and so on. By coding your ads you will know exactly where your leads are coming from.
4. Begin submitting your ad and replace your normal email address with your key coded autoresponder address.
You can obtain free autoresponders with all amenities I mentioned above from any of following sites:
