In just over nine months in SFI, I've been fortunate to have built a team of over
3000 people and be one of the top recruiters in SFI. I do not want to
sound like I'm bragging. I'm just an average guy that put together some
techniques that have worked for me and I've been successful at it.
One of the cheapest and most effective way to bring in new
affiliates for me has been FFA Pages. I know alot of people have had not
alot of success with them and I want to let everyone know why. When most
people signup for an FFA page there autoresponding message is going out
with hundreds of others at the same time. When you do this most people
will mass delete the e-mails and your message will never be read. You
have three options that work very well.
1) Collect the e-mails from the site.
2) Setup a delay so the messages go out a couple of days after they
have posted your link.
3) Place your autoresponder in the body of your outgoing message.
The most effective way for me by far has been collecting the e-mails.
There are several FFA site that let you do this. Just do a search for
FFA pages in any searchengine and a bunch will pop up. What I do is I
send my message out about two or three days after I've collected the
e-mails. This way there is a better chance of getting my e-mail read.
Also your headline make a huge difference. Constantly try different
headlines and code all the lists you send out. This way you can track
all your results. One more thing I always put a disclaimer at the top
saying; " Thanks for posting your link on my FFA Page at http... please
post again soon." If you fail to do this it can be considered SPAM and
you don't want that to happen. I only send one message out and I always
use a free e-mail address like hotmail when sending my messages out.
This way I won't get my primary e-mail shutdown. I use Aureate group
mail to send my messages out. There site is listed below.

The second way is to setup an autoresponder on your ffa page that will
delay when you messages go out. I've never done it myself but I have
heard they work quite well. If you know someone that is good at
programming or knows some cgi they can set this up for you.
The last way is to setup an autoresponder in the body of your
message. There are several autoresponders located in data resource
center in the members area. This way the person will click on the
autoresponder and receive more info from you. After that you can send a
delayed message a couple of days later with more info.
I don't reccomend sending 10 autoresonding messages out. That's too much
and can be considered SPAM by some people. I would only send a couple
and have a way for someone to remove themselves if they don't want to
receive anymore e-mails from you.
I almost forgot one vital thing and that's getting hits to your FFA
Page. You can either do it manually and search for all the databases to
submit your site too or you can submit it to a great site I've found.
Submitad.com will submit your site to over 200 databases for $10. This
is a great deal and you will get tons of hits. Before you do this
though make sure your FFA page will except submissions from databases.
Some FFA pages out there won't let you do this. Well I hope this
information has been informative and help you bring in tons of
