Some Helpful Tips when Joining Sites Part One

Choosing a Good Email Address is Important!

First Off, You need to know that when you join a Safe list or Mailing List
You Will Receive a Whole lot of mail.
I recommend using it is Free and Safe list Friendly. This is provided by Google

Do NOT use Your ISP email box: by this I mean Your Internet provider whether it is AOL, Frontier, ,  etc..
they do not allow bulk emails and will block the Safe list from sending emails to your Account.
Most  Safe lists, List mailers/ Ad Exchanges etc provide a Banned Domain list and you will find most ISP providers will be listed.
When you join a Safe lists, List mailers/ Ad Exchanges etc.. Check out their banned domains list.

Also: I have seen a lot of people use their own domain address:
This also causes problems with the mail as most hosting providers have a limit to the emails that are allowed to be mailed to a box per hour! If you belong to 25-50 or more Safe lists especially as a Free member
The mail will Exceed what your hosting company will allow and the mail will back up in the Server that the Site is being hosted on.. waiting to be sent out to your domain address.
I know this as I host many safe lists on our servers. I have checked our servers and have found hundreds of emails to Domain addresses sitting there Just waiting to be delivered. So please use a email address or a Safe list Friendly email box when joining.

Most Safe lists, List mailers/ Ad Exchanges etc.. do not allow: hotmail, msn, yahoo, etc either as they  block emails from the safe lists.
Especially if there was a lot of mail that has gone into the Spam folder.

Always White List and Use Filters!
Once You Join a Site Use Your Filters!
Always White list the Email address from the site you just joined
Gmail now has a nice feature when you open the email to Validate your email address
Open the email
Look at the top right corner of that email where it says: Reply
there is an arrow that points down
Click that with your mouse
Scroll to Add to contact list
this will white list that email address
Do this for your Contact and List Email address (for Safe lists)

Now Add a Filter
This function is Easy to do in Gmail
This function is Also listed to the right of the opened email same as above
or click on Settings in the Very Top Far Right of your screen
Then click on Filters
This will provide you with labels to direct Your Emails to go in those folders (labels)
You can skip the inbox completely and just have your emails going into the labeled area
You can request it Never to go to Spam folder
Check it out sure will make your life easier and free up a lot of your time!
If you find a Fellow Marketer that You want to make sure you see their Ads and what they are promoting
Make a Filter with their user name of that list by using the filter function :"That has the words"
All Safe lists provide the user name at the very bottom of each email that was sent.. so when you use the function:
:"That has the words"  The filter will search all the emails with that user name and filter them for you.
I love Filters! Can You Tell!

Remember with a Safe list they will ask for 2 email addresses:
Contact Email Address: where you will receive Admin updates/ important news regarding contests etc.. , and Solo Ads
which are Purchased Advertising sent to all members with higher credits.
2nd Email Address is your subscription/list email address:
This is where you will get a whole lot of emails especially as a free member.

Be Respectful to Your Fellow Marketers
You want people to Read Your Ads You Send Out so it is Only but right to Read Others Emails Also!
Of course when you join Many Safe lists, List mailers/ Ad Exchanges etc and Receiving hundreds to thousands per day
it is difficult to Read ALL of your email. That is not productive of your time!
That is why it is important as a Marketer to use Catchy subject lines to Grab the Readers Attention

Until Next Time
Happy Marketing!

Best Wishes to Your Success

May your troubles be less,
your blessings more,
and nothing but happiness comes through your door!

Hello, Dee: Great article highlighting some helpful tips when joining sites! Your first tip about using a Gmail email account is right on. When I first got involved with Internet Marketing, one of the first things I ever did (as recommended by an IM coach like you) was establish a free Gmail email account. I am so glad that I did. Thanks for the rest of your tips, too. Very helpful. :-)
