If you have never hadrepparttar opportunity to use a safelist, or maybe hadrepparttar 102405 opportunity but never acted. You may be makingrepparttar 102406 biggest mistake of your Internet marketing career.

Safelists enable you to reach out to millions of targeted prospects atrepparttar 102407 click of a button. They are SPAM FREE, which means that you do not have to worry about losing your ISP or autoresponder. People that are on a safelist have already inquired about your topic and opted to receive more information.

They are literally waiting for more information.

A Safelist is a group of people with a mutual interest in which subscribers exchange information. When an article is submitted to a safelist it is distributed to all of its members.

You need to make sure it is a quality list, by doing a little homework. The ones listed below arerepparttar 102408 ones that I personally recommend.

The participant is required to supply a valid email address prior to submitting. This assures that you are not going to be getting spam complaints and thus losing your credibility with your ISP service.

You do not use your personal email account. The safelist has its own server, so inrepparttar 102409 unlikelyhood that there is a complaint it would be targeted at that safelist and not you.

The main benefit of a safelist is that they are highly affordable. Just imagine one-click and you just emailed 10,000,000 recipients. Granted probably about half will never read your email, but if you can create a killer subject line, your response rate will be significant. One mailing can boost your website traffic dramatically.

The people that join safelists are targeted prospects. They have also paid to be involved. Think about it for a second, PPC search engines are nothing compared to these. With a PPC, half ofrepparttar 102410 click throughs are not even interested in your proposition, most ofrepparttar 102411 time just FREESEEKERS looking for a handout. These are real people that are looking to succeed in business! These arerepparttar 102412 people you want to be involved into your business!

My main source of leads comes through traffic oasis and my number two source is from a safelist. It is a proven marketing strategy to use one! Their is no better way to get targeted traffic to your website than these two methods.

I purchase as many leads through Traffic Oasis as I can each month andrepparttar 102413 rest of my time either writing letters or articles to send to safelists. I guess you could say it is one of my favorite past times:)

Effective marketing is a must!!

Your first step is to set up a special email account, that is only going to be used for your safelist! This is because you are now a recipient of other peoples emails as well. This is a requirement within any safelist.

Your best bet is to create a new account on your current ISP as their are no storage limitations, as a second source I would recommend a free account on either yahoo or hotmail. Both your ISP account andrepparttar 102414 free accounts are going to get tons of email so be sure to empty them every day. Becauserepparttar 102415 free accounts have limitations on storage, it is vital that they get emptied on a daily basis.

Every day you must send mail. Most people haverepparttar 102416 misconception that they send one email and that does it. These people are wasting their time. You must send out an email at least every other day to get results from a safelist. Even if it isrepparttar 102417 same letter, it may catch a different eye each time! You must join many safelists, no not at once, but maybe join one per month. The more mailings you can send,repparttar 102418 betterrepparttar 102419 results! This makes sense, does it not? Many successful marketers today, spend up to four hours a day just emailing through safelists! Why? because they work.

Make your ad short and torepparttar 102420 point, we as marketers ourselves are not going to want to read through a long sales letter, would you? Provide as many benefits as you can in your letter. Here is a sample of a letter that I have used and it has done very well, because it is a product that will help them with their product!

Are You Selling Hotdogs Or Pretzels?

Written by Al Martinovic

I live acrossrepparttar river from New York City and onrepparttar 102404 days I make my way over there,repparttar 102405 one thing you immediately notice arerepparttar 102406 smells ofrepparttar 102407 street. No... not that smell. I'm talking about food.

You'll find all sorts of vendors selling food onrepparttar 102408 streets. But you won't see 20 different hotdog vendors crowded onto one street corner. Common sense tells you that you won't make much money when you are competing with a bunch of other vendors on one corner who sellrepparttar 102409 same thing.

Yet that is exactly what has happened torepparttar 102410 internet marketing "how to make money" game. You are crowded into one street corner trying to sellrepparttar 102411 same hotdogs as everyone else and you just won't make much money because their is just too much darn competition.

So then you try to outdo your competitors and develop ways to make your "hotdog" stand out from everyone else. And your competitors catch on to this little trick and they start doingrepparttar 102412 same, makingrepparttar 102413 technique ineffective.

You start offering fr-ee toppings with your hotdog but your competitors then also offer those same toppings and even include toppings that you don't offer.

You counter that by doing a little tweeking. You move your hot dog stand a little over torepparttar 102414 left, and a little over torepparttar 102415 right to see if it can increase your sales. But gosh darn it your competitors start doingrepparttar 102416 same and you spend more time dancing then you do making sales.
