How to Use FFA to Promote --- Wisely!
by Kevin Nunley
There are thousands of them. Millions of people use them.
You bet, they're crowded. But free for all link pages can be
a powerful tool in the hands of anyone who knows how to
use them with determination and flair.
The Internet is the great free enterprise marketplace of our
day. Like your great-grandfather who began his business by
placing his apple box near Times Square, free for all links
give you the chance to shout your message at no cost or
low cost in the big world of ecommerce.
Free for all link sites feature a line of advertising with a link
to your web page. Prospects can quickly and easily scan
down a page of links to find products, services, and
opportunities that interest them.
Like a new service scrolling the day's headlines, free for all
link pages give you a running update on what is happening
on the Internet's front lines. Lots of people check them
regularly to stay on the cutting edge.
Thousands of beginning (and experienced) Internet
entrepreneurs have discovered free for all links are a great
way to launch a new product, test an innovative service, or
give their web site a quick boost of traffic.
Here are four ways to make these free link opportunities
work for you.
1. Use one of the services that blasts your link to hundreds
of pages. Even though lots of other people are doing the
same, the number of visitors to these sites creates a
collective crowd of potential customers.
Services that charge a small subscription fee for access to
their network can give you a less crowded field for
promoting your link. Nir Leibovich, CEO of Linkomatic.com, http://www.linkomatic.com/index.cgi?11614
points to recent
improvements for free for all link enthusiasts
"We have a proprietary license to over 3500 of these link
pages and no one else can submit to them," Leibovich said.
This means members of Linkomatic's network have their
links stay up on link pages longer with more exposure.
2. Make sure your line of ad copy sizzles. Start with an
action word. Use marketing's two most powerful words:
FREE and YOU.
Offer your reader a benefit for clicking. Tell them what
they will get when they arrive at your site. It may take
some practice to get your message to fit into a single line.
Readers should click your link to find a web page that
exactly echoes what your line of link advertising said. Don't
confuse prospects by promising them one thing in the link
ad and hitting them with something different on your web
3. Consider getting your own free for all links page. You
can harvest the email addresses of those who place ads and
send them your own marketing message. Because others
voluntarily place their links on your site, you have a
legitimate and valuable opt-in list to promote with.
Keep in mind almost everyone who places a link is
launching or promoting a small business. All need services,
products, and ideas you can sell them. Focus your offerings
on things that help them do work faster, increase sales, or
find a viable opportunity.
When you place your link on someone else's site, expect to
get an email confirmation from them. It may be a good
strategy to create a special mailbox or email account just for
replies. It will help you keep your free for all link
promotion program organized.
4. Be persistent. Your great-grandfather didn't get a free
ride. He had to brave cold weather, rude people, and
meager earnings. Eventually his persistence paid off. He
built a business that grew each year and benefited
generations of family with a solid income and promising
Write your dream down on a piece of paper. List three to
five steps that will get you to your goal. Put the paper in
your pocket. Take it out several times each day and read it.
Keep doing it until the paper becomes dirty and ragged.
This simple technique has been used by countless
entrepreneurs for centuries. It is responsible for vast
fortunes. Constantly review your goals and the methods
you will use to obtain them. This is vital for keeping you
focused. It is an important step toward making free Internet
promotion your path to a bright future.
