FFA's are a waste of time..........or are
© 2002 Cas Amato.
Submitting your ad or url to free-for-all (FFA) link
pages is a waste of time! This is the view held by many
internet marketers although, on the other hand, there are
others who would say that it's a great way to get
FFA's have always been a hotly debated subject. If you have
a good ad, and you submit frequently to a lot of sites, you
WILL get some traffic. This is not disputed. However, the
controversy arises for the following reasons:
1) Your FFA posting will never last very long. As
each new user posts his or her an ad, so your own submission
is quickly being moved down the page. In fact, on most
popular FFA's, your ad would last no longer than a few
minutes before being shoved off the bottom of the page and
cast into oblivion!
2) Your inbox is quickly filled with junk mail. The
reason that FFA's are free is that in order to post your ad,
you have to agree to receive "a few confirmation
emails" from the people running the site and their
premium users. N.B. For "a few" read
"hundreds!" So, you post your submission on an FFA
page and what do you get for your trouble? An ad that lasts
for about 10 minutes and an inbox full of junk mail! So,
FFA's are a waste of time. Right? Wrong!.

There are a couple of things you can do, which will make
posting to FFA's more effective.
1) Keep submitting your ad over and over again. The
theory is that if you submit constantly to a large number of
FFA pages, you will end up with a decent amount of traffic.
However, whatever you do, do NOT try to do this manually!
Automating this process will enable you to submit to
hundreds of FFA pages without spending hours slaving over a
hot PC. There are many places on the Internet where you can
get hold of FFA submission software. However, my own
recommendation is Roibot: http://www.roibot.com/r.cgi?R22292_campaign
This program provides a completely automated process for
submitting to FFA pages on a continual basis. You set it up
once, and then it does the rest for you.
2) Run your own FFA page. This is a great way to
generate traffic. You can usually set up your page so that
it has links and banners to your own site. And, best of all,
most FFA programs offer you the facility to send an
automated email to each and every user who posts to your
page. This is sometimes referred to as "Reverse
Marketing". Again, there are many sites on the Net
which can offer you your own FFA page. One of the best
programs I have found is this one: http://www.ffamailblaster.com/cgi-bin/ffa/free/acc.cgi?ca123-admin
So, posting to FFA's, a waste of time? Not necessarily. Not
if you go about it in the right way. Just follow the simple
steps above and make FFA's work for you.
