Directory Submission Update

The directory submission service I talked about last week was, in my opinion, a pretty good investment. I received plenty of emails from directory owners / publishers, and I did not expect to receive mailings from all of them. This in my understanding and experience is because not all directories require email confirmation. But I am still receiving inclusion confirmations just the same, as some directories take a little longer for review.

I would also like to share with
you another little tidbit of information for those of you considering
email-marketing tactics. I have never been big on the idea of maintaining an
ezine list, or subscriber list just because of the extra workload. But this is
apparently the way a lot of experienced marketers make money. I will be
investigating more email market tactics in the near future as well. You can here
a good Webinar interview about this subject here

Market Saturation & Keeping On Top

As of late, I came across a good article related to Internet Marketing, and the latest pitfalls associated with it. One of the most common problems that are of concern to most dedicated veteran marketers is market saturation. This is an overabundance of people offering the same programs and products. As affiliate marketers we need to be aware of this potential saturation on a steady basis.

Note: Sorry I lost the URL of the article, but I will just summarize it in a few words.

Searching for new programs and or products to market on an ongoing basis can be of paramount importance. We all want to serve new and exciting ads that are both fresh, and appealing. Such ad serving is related to both new and old customers who have already seen the same ads on other Sites. Your return traffic will also want something new. New ads are also helpful in building new content, and present new ways of maintaining revenue.

Last week I talked about a directory submission service that I tried out, and so far so good. I am getting more relative back links according to my site search. Only time will tell if it was really worth it, but once again I will keep you in tune with the developmental aspects of this project. For more information concerning Directory submissions, you can read below. You may also want to check out the many other services through Google search, but be sure to do your research before committing to a cash outlay!
