Making A Plan | Article #257 :ADVANCED GAME PLAN 2 – PART 3
In our last installment of our series, we began to move down our funnel approach to marketing and began to target wider markets. In this installment, we’re going to work our way down to the bottom, or top of that funnel, and start to use what we call the shotgun method. This is where we reach the largest number of prospects with the least amount of effort.
The first step in our shotgun method is to sign up with as many FFA Hosting sites as we can. Why? These are the cheapest forms of advertising on the Internet, at about $20 a month for each site, and you’ll reach 1000’s of leads each day for each site you are a member of. This is absolutely the most cost effective form of advertising, outside of free, that I know.
Here are my favorite FFA sites.
TRAFFIC WAVE - $17.95 PER MONTH
PROSPECT RESPONSE - $14.95 PER MONTH
MONSTER TRAFFIC - $10.00 PER MONTH
VERETEKK - $41.00 PER MONTH
The last step in our shotgun method is to sign up with IpostAd. It is the most massive safelist submitter on the planet. IpostAd has a safelist count in the thousands. The number of people you’ll reach is in the millions. You can’t even begin to comprehend how many people will see your ad each day that you submit.
However, there is one thing that you have to be aware of when doing this. The numbers of emails that you are going to receive are massive, and most email accounts are simply not made to handle that kind of volume. Plus, you are not going to want to have to clean out all these emails on a daily basis. So my suggestion, before you even sign up with IPostAd, is to get yourself a bottomless email account with YuKnow.com. They make their email account specifically for people who want to use safelists and safelist submitters like IPostAd.
Here are the links for both IPostAd and YuKnow so you can sign up.
After you do this, IPostAd will automatically confirm all your confirmation emails to each list for you so you don’t have to do it yourself. This is a great time saver.
This should be more than enough to get your ads out to millions of people each day for very little monthly expense. If you combine these methods with the ones we used at the top of the funnel, you should see some amazing results.
In closing, I just want to say that none of these methods are going to bring you overnight fortunes. You personal contacts may not start promoting to their lists right away. Your e-zine ads might only bring subscribers at first. And for the people who you reach through FFA sites and safelists, most of them will need to see your site 7 times before they buy. So the key to making this work is patience. As long as you understand that this is a long process, you won’t be disappointed with the results.
