Are Safe List's really Safe

When I first heard of safe list's I was a little skeptical. No I was very skeptical. It just didn't make sense to pay to join a service like Herculist just so I could receive a few thousand blatant sales pitches a day.

People are too smart today to actually use a real email address for this type of advertising to be effective.

Now if you don't know how the safe list of old work here it is in a nutshell. Basically you pay, we'll get around this in a minute. Anyway you pay to join a list and agree to accept advertisements in your inbox. In exchange you get to blast other people with your advertisements.

Problem is after you joined and started sending out your little comments across the internet dreaming of building your list something dawns on you.

Your not checking your email and the big question begins to sink in, "Is anyone reading my email?"

Your blood starts to boil realizing you paid to be a member of a SPAM community that only benefits the creator or the "LIST"

Enter 2008 and a new spin on things.

Taking the theory of traffic swarm and combining with with a safe list now you have something to work with called List Joe.

The Funnel Ends...maybe?

You've reached the point of no return.

For three years I have worked to detangle the web. For years I followed blindly listening to people who gave bad advice on top of bad advice. Struggeling to figure all this stuff out just so I could look my friends and family in the eye I searched everywhere for the answer.

Finally one day a young man showed me a little trick. You might even say it's a militant tactic. Either way results are what's important and without boring you to death with little details let me just share this.

If you want to own Google this example is exactly how I do it. It's a living breathing example of how to accomplish two things with minimal effort. A few days ago you may have noticed a little blog entry about winzip.

Perhaps it seemed out of place to include something like a little blurb about something as mundane as a free product that personally offers no monetary gain for sharing.

If this is the case let me share something with you.

What you have witnessed if you followed through the cycle is how to gain maximum exposure for select keywords. It was the best way I could think of to share how you can quickly develop set it and forget it marketing pieces that just beg for someone to find YOU.

We didn't even have to give away the farm. Instead you have witnessed first hand how to take over front page google with a simple key word. 7 zip and winzip.

Imagine the internet real estate you could own just following the rules Google has laid out. Check it out for yourself by typing Goodbye Winzip on Google.

Here's a video showing how this works, ENJOY

Survey's the first step to commitment

From time to time I get asked how to use products like magnetic sponsoring or the renegade networker. If you don't know what these are simply put they are little services I use to generate quality leads for my business.

Problem most people have with these types of tools is how to use them.

Here is the simplest way to tell you.

1. Call people who purchase the product
2. Ask if they would like a free 30 minute consultation
3. Have them fill out a survey so we can maximize their consultation

This allows me and my customer to plan a concise discussion which will benefit them more than just a random consultation.

Here is a tutorial video on how to set up a survey using Survey Monkey

How to make google video autoplay

This was a burning question I had...And no one seemed to have the answer. Yes, I found various auto play codes that worked with Fire Fox, but IE just refused to play ball.

Finally I found the code that worked.

Here it is

embed id="VideoPlayback" FlashVars="autoPlay=true"
src=" doc id here&hl=en&fs=true" style="width:400px;height:326px" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always"

Just copy and past the code above and BE SURE to put your docid with no spaces where it says insert doc id here.

Hope this helps
