Free MLM And Business Opportunity Leads With Triple Your List

This is one of the few programs where I've actually seen members be able to obtain real leads for their MLM and business opportunities.

When you sign up at Triple Your List, you will receive double opt-in leads with name, email and IP address. These are not safelist members, they have joined this list and agreed to receive contact from Triple Your List members.

You'll want to agree to Auto-Recycle which mean you're added to the rotator of members to receive new leads.You can get them as often as every few days if you wish. I also suggest signing up with a Gmail account and use the Contacts Feature to add them to a list that you can mail to. Make sure to remind them that their emails were obtained through Triple Your List so they know that your messages are not spam.

For more information on Triple Your List, click the banner below.

Online Strategies For Offline Businesses - Part 1 Of 3

Lots of brick and mortar businesses have been implementing online advertising strategies to get exposure for their promotions. Often it can be a challenge to narrow their target market to their local area. After all not every company that has a website has a global reach. Or they may be service businesses that are looking for clients within a certain mile radius of their storefront.

These are a few online strategies that businesses can use to get the word out to their local customer base.

The first is getting a listing on Google Places For Business. Prospects will be able to find your business on Google Search, Google Maps, Google+ as well as mobile. Your listing can include your location and contact information including hours of operation as well as have clients post reviews. Google states that 97% of shoppers are now searching for local businesses online, so it's definitely worthwhile to get a free listing.

You can get started with Google Places For Business by clicking here.

Make It Short!

Lots of Internet marketers use URL shorteners for affiliate and other long website links. Would like to hear which ones you use and prefer.

I've tried a few different services, some claim they pay commissions when you use their service. A couple that I tried went out of business leaving me with the annoying task of updating lots of links that were no longer any good.

Currently I use either bitly, a redirect service, or ViralURL, which is a cloaker, to shorten links. In my experience they have both been reliable and also have tracking so I can see where my traffic is coming from.

Feel free to comment on your favorite service for shortening links. Thanks for visiting.

25 Top Classifieds Sites Where It's Not A Waste Of Time Posting Your Ad

Although Classified Ads are very effective for promotion and can get you lots of targeted visitors, there are tons of them out there to choose from. The resources on this list are reputable Classified Advertising Sites, not link farms or spam sites.

You'll get an opportunity to show your products and services to lots of real prospects. They all have Alexa rankings of no more than 150,000 so these are classified ad sites that receive lots of traffic.

1. - The big daddy of classified ads sites.
2. - The next busiest classified site after Craigslist. 
3. - Odd name but this site is one of the busiest classifieds sites around. This high traffic classifieds site is focused on UK ads.
4.  - This classified site partners with in the US and Autotrader UK.
5. - The official classifieds site for Ebay.

15. - High traffic site which is gets lots of promotion from the owner. He does PPC and SEO promotion for each category. 
16. - US classifieds site which allows car dealers and other heavy advertisers to bulk upload large amounts of listings.
17. - This is the online version of the old Penny Saver newspaper which was a very popular print newspaper with discounts and classified ads.
18. - This site has been in business since 1994. That is before we had Google. It looks somewhat like but with less emphasis on business opportunities. They have an affiliate program with over 34,000 affiliates. This means if you post your ad here it goes out on a feed to over 30,000 other sites who run their ads. This means more exposure for you. Many of these sites have programs where other websites run their feeds. This gives you quite a bit more exposure.
19. - Simple easy to negotiate classifieds board.
20. - US based with worldwide advertising possibilities.
21. - The cleanest looking classifieds site so far. Just the ads. No clutter at all. It must be working for them since over 15,000 people have clicked their like button.

Their advertising engine has been used by big business directories such as AT&T’s, newspapers such as the San Francisco Chronicle, and niche online properties such as is a part of a network of advertising properties. Again, if you advertise on many of these sites your ad will simultaneously run on thousands of other partner sites.
24. - Gets good traffic and they have a nice classifieds site worth posting to.
25. - Well designed board with a .us domain name. 

Even though these sites are great for marketing, it'll take quite awhile for you to post your ad to each one.

They will automatically submit your ad to over 500,000 ad sites monthly including search engines, classified ad sites, message boards and more.

Viral Mailers, Are They Just A New Name For Safelist?

Have signed up for a few viral mailer services lately and so far I'm not really impressed. The ones I've joined have a requirement of paying for upgrades as soon as you sign on. With most text ad exchanges or safelists I've joined free members receive some credits to start mailing immediately. It's frustrating to take the time to sign up and be forced to have to pay for a service that I don't even get to try out to see if the list is responsive. Then if I like the service I may consider the option to upgrade.

Also what is the real difference betwwen a viral mailer and a safelist or credit mailer, anyway?

Not sure if this is just my beef, has anyone else experienced this? Please feel free to comment, thanks for visiting!

Why Bother To Use A Classified Ad Submission Service? - Part 2 Of 3

Another reason to use a Classified Ad Submission Service is to quickly reach lots of targeted prospects. Classified ads are viewed by visitors that are looking for specific products and services and are ready to buy.

You can get massive traffic to your site using a Classified Ad Submission Service that submits your ad to 1000's of ad sites, search engines, forums and message boards. Obviously the more your ad is submitted the better your website ranking will be in the search engines. This also makes it easier for your customers to locate you.

Why Bother To Use A Classified Ad Submission Service? - Part 1 Of 3

Using a Classified Ad Submission Service saves you a lot of time. Classified ads are still very effective but each site has their own set up for registering, logging in and posting ads. This can be very time consuming if you want to post to several classified ad sites.

A Classified Ad Submission Service can automate the process for you and some can even automatically renew your ads. This puts your promotions on autopilot since classifieds sites also have different run times before the ads will expire.

Thoughts On Getting Your Blog Comments Posted

Although bloggers welcome comments on their blog, I personally appreciate the occasional visitor that actually takes time out to really share their thoughts on the post. You don't have to write a whole paragraph on the subject, but it's great when visitors contribute to the conversation.

Since I moderate all comments here, I toss out the ones that are just spam, meaning, your link is to a competing product or service as well as ones with no real information such as "good post".

So if you really want to get your comments added here to get a backlink, please take a little time to add your related thoughts or experiences.
