    Are FFA Pages For You?
    by Ronald Dunn

    When you post to an FFA page, you agree to receive an
    email from the person who owns it. In exchange, your
    link is displayed on his/her site.

    Just how long does your link actually stay displayed?

    When FFA pages first emerged on the Internet scene,
    your link could be seen for as long as a week. Most
    pages hold between 50 and 75 links, so at least that
    many people stood a chance of seeing your link. That
    was also when people had to actually visit the site
    in order to post their link.

    This has changed drastically over the years. Yes, you
    can still visit the site and post your link, but it's
    no longer necessary. We now have sites and software
    packages that will automatically post your link to
    millions of FFA pages, Search Engines (large and
    small), Safe lists, Opt-In lists, Bulletin Boards
    and much more.

    There is a down side to this automation:

    1. Nobody actually visits the site anymore.

    2. Nobody ever sees your link.

    3. Your link stays on the site for 5 - 10 minutes, if
    you're lucky. Of course, it doesn't really matter
    since nobody sees it anyway.

    4. There are numerous submission services and software
    packages you can use. By using these services, you
    could possibly receive thousands of emails
    introducing you to their business offers.

    The only possible up side I can detect might be for a
    person who is brand new to Internet Marketing who is
    looking for a business opportunity.

    If you choose to use a submission service or software
    package, I strongly suggest you don't use your main email
    account. Find one or more Free email accounts that are
    available, such as Yahoo, Eudoramail or Hotmail to just
    name a few.

    As you research through the myriad of emails be careful
    and picky. Check it out to your satisfaction, first. If
    all you can find is an email address for a link, delete
    it and go on to the next one. Stick to the ones that
    supply a link to a web site on the Internet.

    When you do find one that you want to investigate further
    look for a couple of major items on their site. If you
    can't find out who owns the site and/or an email address
    to contact them with, don't waste your time or money.
    Even if you do decide to join, you will probably be left
    to flounder on your own. You need to know that someone is
    going to be there to help you when you have a question
    or a problem.

    Can you figure out what product or service they are
    recommending and can you get enough information about
    it so you understand it? No! Next!

    Look at the commission schedule. If it doesn't pay on more
    than one level and pay at least 20%, don't waste your time.

    If you have made it through all these tests and you are
    still interested, don't stop yet. If you have any
    questions - no matter how stupid you may feel they are -
    email the owner and ask. The only stupid question is
    the one that didn't get asked.

    In summary:
    Be absolutely sure that this sounds like something
    that you think you can do and want to get involved
    with. Don't just join things helter-skelter. Be sure
    that you understand what you're getting involved
    with completely before joining.

    Following these few steps may save you a lot of time
    and money. There truly are a number of good business
    opportunities on the Internet. It is possible to make
    money as long as you are careful. I wish you all the
    success in the world! Happy hunting!
