Get Free Advertising By Participating In email Discussion Lists
Posting messages to email discussion lists is a
great way to get free advertising. An email
discussion list is a group of people connected
together via email that can communicate with
one another. When you post a message to a list
include your signature file at the end. Your signature
file should be no more than 5 to 6 lines. Include
an attention getting sentence why they should
visit your web site or email your auto responder.
Try to select list’s that are archived because your
signature file will be viewed for years to come.
Email discussion lists are highly targeted. There
are thousands of discussion lists with thousands
of different subjects. You can usually subscribe
to these lists by sending an email or by filling out
a web form. You want to subscribe to one that
would be related to your target audience. If you
are selling books about marketing, you would
want to post to lists were business people and
marketers would congregate.
Before posting to any email discussion list, read
the FAQ or rules first. They will tell you what
kinds of posts are allowed. Read the messages
for a few days before posting your message to
see what type of messages are being posted. If
the list is archived you could read the older
messages. If you want to make sure, you could
email the list moderator. Never post messages
that are unrelated to the list’s subject.
There are many different types of messages you
could post to the email discussion list. You
could post an informative comment or article that
would interest the other list members. Post a
question on the discussion list that you would like
answered. You could answer another person’s
question on the list. When you post and answer
questions you will become know as an expert
and meet other experts on the list.
