Are You Using Ezine Classified Ads?

Written by David McKenzie

If not, then you should be. They are much more effective than traditional online classifieds mainly because they are more targeted.

How many ezines do you think are out there in internet world?

I really do not know. But it has got to be tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands.

Guess what? Most of them have a subscriber base of fewer than 2,000 and very few people are targeting this subscriber base. The big boys are just targetingrepparttar large subscriber ezines.

There is a huge market in getting your targeted ezine ad to tens of thousands of people.

Here are 3 ways you can do it:

1. Ezine Ad Swaps.

You can swap ezine ads with other ezine editors.

The cost to you - ZERO! You can just approach another ezine editor and ask to swap 6 ads in their next 6 issues. And you will feature their ezine ad in your next 6 issues.

2. Pay for Ezine Ads

You could negotiate a deal to pay for ezine ads. If someone has a subscriber base of 1,000 subscribers and they currently run little or no ezine ads ask them if they would like to receive some money to run your ezine ad. I bet they don't say no.
