What do you want for nuthin'?

Any one of these tools, or combinations of, work great for your free ad submissions. Both organization and posting are made easy afterrepparttar initial setup.

Below isrepparttar 101045 lowdown of each, listing strengths and weaknesses, in my opinion. In all honesty I like them all, but read on, use them, and make your own decision. ---

AI RoboForm

AI RoboForm is great for filling in forms. After you teach it how, it will fill them in automatically when your browser finds one. As you go to a newsletter form page, you can namerepparttar 101046 settings forrepparttar 101047 newsletter, then every time you go to that site, AI RoboForm will fill outrepparttar 101048 form. All you have to do is hitrepparttar 101049 submit button.

The free version can be used immediately. The way we are using this tool is hindered very little inrepparttar 101050 free version, althoughrepparttar 101051 full version does have some great features. There is no way to organize your ezines, but I find it an excellent form filler.


--- AdWizard

One of AdWizard's better features is that it keeps a database that is easily accessed and modified. It also lets you know when it is time to send your ads again. AdWizard is a slower than AI RoboForm or EzineAnnouncer, but isrepparttar 101052 most configurable ofrepparttar 101053 three when filling forms.

AdWizard is usable immediately, but requires that you register it after 60 days of use.


--- EzineAnnouncer

Although I like all of these tools,repparttar 101054 most versatile is EzineAnnouncer. Like AdWizard, it will also let you know when to send your ads out.

Between AdWizard and EzineAnnouncer,repparttar 101055 former isrepparttar 101056 most configurable using forms, but neither AdWizard or AI RoboForm haverepparttar 101057 ability to send email to ezines that require your ad to be sent via email.

The demo version of EzineAnnouncer is usable for 15 days. After that it must be registered for continued use. If you use it, you might get addicted.

None of these tools are expensive. The cost is less than $150 if you were to buy them all. Considerrepparttar 101058 cost of advertising and what a premium ad runs. This now becomes a bargain.

The length of time involved isrepparttar 101059 setup of each ezine. It's not too bad unless you have a hundred or so to do. After you've finished doing a bulk load like at Tucats Co-op, onezies and twozies are easy and don't take that long.

Remember, don't blow off those ezines after you've subscribed. You could be missing some good articles and might find an ad or two that you may find useful.
