If the pages you are promoting in traffic exchanges and safelist do not have YOUR opt-in forms on them ……….DITCH THEM, Unless Your The Owner Of  The Program!


Your only building someone else list and business, seriously there is reasons why everyone says build your list. Number one is communication, you know how everyone is talking about social marketing, well this is the best form of it, not just chatting in the chat rooms. Social marketing is building your list, this is how you can communicate with people, get to know them and build trust. List building is also total branding, how you communicate with your prospects portrays who you are and what you represent, send them crap and they will think your crap, send them things that help them solve problems and get closer to their goals, and they will get to know you and trust you. Social marketing and Branding is not just putting your name and picture on a page and telling people to join your program. Social marketing and branding are continuing communication, that is how you build long term relationships and trust.


I once owned a retail store in my local mall, and the people that I got to know the best and communicated often with, were my best customers. When they needed something they always came to me. In fact, are local mayor race came up the first year I had my store and most of my customers wanted me to run for mayor, because they liked my ideals so much, because I took the time for them. You cant do that online sitting in chat rooms, throwing up web pages with your name and picture on them, without having away to continually communicate with them. You need to have some form of continual communication.


Second, when you advertise affiliate programs directly your not building your business, affiliate programs come and go like the wind, and you have no way of continuing communication with your new referrals because they are on someone else list, AND YOU DID THE WORK TO PUT THEM THERE! Its just not smart marketing, put them on your list first, then refer them to your favorite affiliate programs, this way you are always building your list, and your business first. That way when the affiliate program you joined no longer exist, your business still does!


Third, building your list allows you to continually communicate with your prospects, so why would you want to waste your traffic credits advertising a single program, that is a pure waste of your time and effort. I would rather put 1 person on my list a day, then put 5 people into a single program a day. Because when I build my list first and build a relationship with that person, they will follow me into 50 programs, not just one.


What you advertise and how you advertise is extremely important, dont think you can just throw any old thing up to advertise, it just wont work, and in the long run you will still be broke! And the people you helped build their list will be making all the money still. You need to be smart in your marketing, you need to realize affiliate programs exist for smart marketers, they start them to get others to build their list for them. Now that doesn’t mean do not join affiliate programs, it just means be smart and build your list first!


To Your Success And Happiness
