Are You Wasting Your Time With Free Ezine Ads?

Written by Michael Hopkins

The biggest problem is that, by joining a whole plethora of ezines your mail box risks becoming very crowded very quickly, and it's easy to become overwhelmed with it all.

This is especially true if some of those ezines send out messages every single day -- as many do.

To get around this, and to keep your free ezine advertising campaign under control, follow these steps:

STEP 1. Create a separate e-mail address for your ezine subscriptions (e.g. my_ezines@.....).

STEP 2. In your email software (e.g. Outlook Express) create a folder (directory) called 'free_ezine_ads'.

STEP 3. Using your e-mail software set up a rule that sends all mails that arrive to your e-mail address 'my_ezines@....' torepparttar folder called 'free_ezine_ads'.
