The Deception of FFA Advertising

Written by Dan J. Fry

FFA, or Free For All sites arerepparttar next generation of internet marketing. Or at least that's what many want you to believe.

FFA sites are places where anyone can post a short ad with a link, as long as they agree to accept emails fromrepparttar 116954 site owner. Some ofrepparttar 116955 most popular sites are

(1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

At first thought this seems like a remarkable way to advertise. But, there are major problems here.

First off,repparttar 116956 only way forrepparttar 116957 advertisement to work is for people to visitrepparttar 116958 FFA site where it is posted. Butrepparttar 116959 only people it seems that visit these sites are those that post an ad. To make matters worse, 99% of posts are done now through autosubmiters. So who actually sees your ad? Absolutely no one.

You may have received emails from FFA site owners of claiming that advertising via an FFA is worthless unless you actually ownrepparttar 116960 site. Their flawed reasoning (which I will explain shortly) is that asrepparttar 116961 owner, you get to post your own ads onrepparttar 116962 site, and better yet, collectrepparttar 116963 email addresses of everyone posting. Moreover, you receive commissions on anyone signing up to purchase an FFA site of their own.

But wait! It gets better. The same people will claim that when submitting your ad, create a separate email account to storerepparttar 116964 large number of autoresponder messages you will receive and other advertisements. So, if you don't want your primary email account to fill up, create a secondary account and simply deleterepparttar 116965 emails as they come in.

Now i'm really confused. If people who submit to my now owned and paying monthly FFA site, create a secondary email address to submit when posting, only to delete all ofrepparttar 116966 advertisements they receive, why exactly do I want their email address?
