People who do post to FFA LINKS will never read all junk mail in their in-box, they just delete it. So what is point? It is like a cat and mouse game that will never end. So, is that what you really want? Because it does not stop there. Your email address is added to spam databases, and posted to opt-in mailing lists (real "opt-in", huh?). NOW, your email address is a pawn for spammers. Every piece of software for harvesting email addresses will grab yours, and now your email address is for sale everywhere.
Do yourself a favor.... There are so many ways to do productive advertising. Stay away from FFA LINKS. You will make NO money, and you will be a VICTIM of constant SPAM. You will NEVER see a successful business entrepreneur posting to FFA Sites. Ask them where to advertise, they will tell you.
When I was a newbie, I submitted to every FFA link I could find. Gee, submitting your link to hundreds of thousands of possible clients? And for FREE? How could you go wrong? It was SO easy!
I would wake up next morning with hundreds of emails in my box. In my opinion, YES< it is SPAM! Because I DO NOT WANT THEM! I posted to an FFA LINK page, that is all. I HAD to agree to receive some emails, but not HUNDREDS!!! That was only way to get my link on page! I was in for a rude awakening. Not one thread of business came through and I could not decipher what was JUNK MAIL, and what was business.
I literally had to get another email account. I do not touch FFA Pages, and I get an average of a few spam mails a day. Everything else is business. I love it! I will never totally get rid of spam. In fact, now it is a pleasure, because I just reply with my AD. Anyone who does business online is guaranteed to receive some. But if you want to get rid of hundreds of emails in your box, then STOP POSTING TO FFA Pages! They are, in fact, biggest culprit of SPAM.
Most successful businesses have learned to stay away from FFA Pages. These practices are not part of a successful business. They are part of a desperate ploy to make money without spending any.
Now, not everyone will agree with what I am saying, however, facts are in front of you. You decide whether you want to deal with all junk mail. I, for one, can say that it is a pleasure doing business online, now that I do not have to wake up to hundreds of spammers.
You can save yourself a lot of headaches by NOT falling VICTIM to SPAMMERS!
