Generally speaking, when you market using safelists, especially as a free member you agree to receive e-mail from other members about their business. This can amount to a large number of incoming e-mail ads which you can read to earn credits towards e-mail advertising for your business.
I have recently come across a great advertising company which addresses most of the above concerns. This company is called ListQuick. This is not a safelist. It is, however, a safe advertising zone. Which means you cannot advertise junk here. I think this is great for the online marketer who is so tired of receiving unethical and illegal programs in their inbox. Here you can build your legitimate online business in a professional environment.
The nice thing about ListQuick is that even free members can earn $15 per pro referral. This makes it possible to either continue as a free member, if you so wish, BUT if you want to earn more, you can use your earnings to upgrade your membership for a one-time fee.
Be disciplined about marketing, make sure you advertise regularly and use ListQuick to build your main business. This is an advertising program which has increasing value. You see, even as the membership grows, ListQuick embraces, welcomes and encourages free members because even the new guy can e-mail a totally random mix of 100 free and paid members and not repeat his ads, while earning for referrals. Another attractive benefit of ListQuick is that even pro members have a cap of 1,000 members they can e-mail every 5 days so not everyone is blasting you with e-mails.
This just makes sense to me after years and years of floundering, I can finally e-mail 100 new folks every 5 days and bring them to Lead Generating Tools when they can get training on how to market effectively online, build their business, honestly, one correct step at a time while getting the Free Tools to help them do this.
If you have a list, you can grow it exponentially with ListQuick, and if you don't have a list yet, why not use this Instant List to grow one? It's a no-brainer to me and a win win situation for all concerned.
