From the Editor

Got a small glitch in my affiliate site. Seems that the links do not work with some Win XP systems using I.E. I'm not sure what the cause is, and I haven't seen any chat about it on the boards, so I have no idea how to solve it!

Picked up some great videos that show how to do a number of tasks in simple, short steps. They cover such tasks a setting up a Clickbank account, a WordPress blog, how to add a PayPal button to your site, how to add a meta description tag to your html code and much, much more. You can pick them up for a fantastically low price at

Crappy Advertising Methods That Work

Today's article is very brief, but informative - Crappy Methods That Work.

Although these methods have been railed against by the pros, they do work. They do take time, effort and/or some money.

FFA hosting is relatively cheap. The author spends about $200 a month on all his FFA sites. But it’s more than worth it when you’re bringing in $1,700 and sometimes $2,000 a month. And mind you, the author is NOT selling high end products. If he was, he’d be making even more. Use FFA sites correctly and you can really clean up with them because of the nature of the people who use them…the newest of the newbies.

Safelists also take some time, especially with the credit based ones, but the submitters are powerful and reach millions for $20 a month, more or less. The author claims that it’s worth it to get IPostAd. The credit based safelists are the most responsive of all. His admonition is - don’t sell…- educate.

Message board posters are of the same mentality as the others. They’ve signed up with some biz op and have no idea what they’re doing. Educate these people. Make your ads stand out by NOT giving a sales pitch. You will look like an expert next to some of these folks.

Traffic exchanges are simply a matter of putting up a decent splash page with a brief message and an opt-in form. Again, the key is to appeal to these people’s desire to get traffic. Everything else is irrelevant.

The key to this whole process is treating these people differently than they are used to being treated. Provide them with good content that actually helps them and you will have customers for life.

P.S. Have you seen my new site Mr Idea's Ebookstore. As the name implies it is stocked with ebooks, scripts, websites and more.
