Time wasters to avoid

Viral Marketing Frenzy - A force so powerful, it cannot be stopped!Hi Guys,

Today we are going to take a quick look at a few of serial “time wasters”. While there are more, these are the most common types. My advice is to stay away from them if you can.

They do nothing positive except waste your precious time. Time is a commodity you simply cannot afford to dwindle, especially in the internet marketing business.

FFA (Free for All) Advertising Sites: These are total junk at this internet age. They do nothing successfully for you except waste your time at the very least. The worst thing you can do is ever think about posting your site URL on one of these. They don’t work at all. And if you don’t know what an FFA site is, then consider yourself a very lucky person. These are sites that list a huge amount of site links from a lot of other hopefuls trying to send prospects to their site. It isn’t targeted to any one specific group of people either. All the links are usually jumbled together into one huge link list. Honestly, how effective do you think this is going to be if you are the 3,215 link on that list?

My advice to anyone starting out with internet marketing promotions is to keep well away from FFA pages – it’s not worth it for the pitiful traffic and the ensuing volumes of email you’ll receive. You will just waste your time like I did, surfing FFA pages, a few years back for practically no return. After all, how many fellow internet marketers have you heard comment that he or she spent the night cruising FFA sites… my guess would be none.

Paying for Site Submission to Search Engines: How do you even know whether or not these “site submission” companies are submitting your site to the most popular search engines? How would you know whether they are even placing you in the correct category when submitting your site to be accepted? Put your money where it will be of most use to you, and investing it here isn’t the place. Besides, you can do it on your own for free anyway without having to place a bunch of ugly banners onto your site giving them free advertising.

Traffic Exchanges: A traffic exchange website receives website submissions from webmasters that join the traffic exchange networks. In theory the person who submitted his websites has to browse other member sites on the exchange program to earn credits. This in turn enables their sites to be viewed by other members through the exchange network. This is supposed to increase the number of visitors to the sites involved. In reality, they are all there for the same reason you are – to promote their own sites. Apart from wasting your time nothing useful ever comes out of this.

Safelists /Safelist Mailings: Do you honestly believe that people who are on this type of mailing list are going to take the time to read your email? They’re only there for the same reason you are – to promote their own sites – nothing else. They don’t care whether you are giving them something tremendous for free. All they care about is getting their ad in front of you in order to generate their own traffic and sales. It’s a serious waste of time, so avoid this as best as you can.

So clear your mind and take all the stuff you learned about FFA advertising, traffic exchanges and safelists… and throw them out the window.

If you are currently using any of them you need to stop immediately. They’re doing nothing for your marketing endeavors whatsoever.

My advice to you is to stay away from them if you can. You have to rid yourself of all the “garbage tactics” and focus on using the most effective ones properly and quickly.

You will need all the available time you can muster to build your online business through the applying useful advertising and promotional techniques that work to become successful, earning the profits you feel you should earned. Don’t waste your time on using things that don’t work.

Do not let useless information stand in your way. Think long term, never short term. People who are habitual failures can only think a few steps ahead.

This may seem a bit silly to you at this point, but believe me, knowing what not to do will greatly shave time off your busy schedule. It will allow you to manage your time more effectively and place you on the right road towards profits as quickly as humanly possible.

I hope that the above is of benefit to you. Please feel free to leave a comment below. I would really love to hear from you.

Until the next time,

Warmest regards,
