The Right Track

Written by Bob Osgoodby

There's an old saying - "Even if you're onrepparttar right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." How many people try to set their business onrepparttar 101093 "right track" and just never make it? Just what isrepparttar 101094 "right track"?

You can be relatively sure you are onrepparttar 101095 "right track" when your business is starting to generate income. Some things you do will be good, and while others may sound good, in reality may not be. Let's take a hard look at one of these strategies.

Did you know there is software available which will allow you to automatically submit your ads to web sites that accept free ads, and to newsletters that do likewise? This software will submit any number of ads you wish, in any frequency you desire.

"Wow - what a great idea!", you might think. I can submit my ads to thousands of these sites with a single keystroke. "What a time saver!"

Some people send out a dozen or more like this everyday. Is this doing them any good? Well maybe yes, and maybe no. Let's first examinerepparttar 101096 different types of web sites that accept free ads, and why.

Many web sites that accept free ads, do it purely to collect email addresses, which they can then sell as targeted lists. They don't really care if your ad is ever seen. In fact, many have a high limit between 50 and 300 ads. Whenrepparttar 101097 next one is submitted,repparttar 101098 oldest is dropped, andrepparttar 101099 process continues.

With thousands of ads submitted hourly, how long do you think your ad will remain on their site - a minute or two - hardly worth your time. The flip side is you will suddenly find a lot more unsolicited email arriving daily from those who bought your email address. If you like receiving unsolicited email, I guess this is good.
