You cannot afford to waste time while marketing

A few waste timers you need to avoid. This may seem a bit silly to you at this point, but believe me, knowing what not to do will greatly shave time off your busy schedule. It will allow you to manage your time more effectively and place you on the right road towards profits as quickly as humanly possible.

What I'm going to tell you about here are what I like to refer to as “time wasters”.

They do nothing positive except waste your precious time. Time is a commodity you simply cannot afford to dwindle, especially in the internet marketing business.

There's always someone else out there that will have the available time required to build their online empire through applying useful advertising and promotional techniques that work, beating you to the punch, earning the profits you feel you should have earned.

All because you wasted your time on using things that don't work. Therefore, you have to rid yourself of all the “garbage tactics” so you know for a fact you're using the most effective ones properly and quickly.

If you are currently using any of the following you need to stop immediately.

They're doing nothing for you whatsoever. Here's a quick list of time wasters you should try to avoid:

Safelist Mailings:

Do you honestly believe that people who are on this type of mailing list are going to take the time to read your email? They're only there for the same reason you are - to promote their own sites.

They don't care if you're giving them something fantastic for free. All they care about is getting their ad in front of you and generating their own traffic and sales. It's a serious waste of time, so avoid this as best as you can.

Paying For Site Submission To Search Engines:

How do you even know whether or not these “site submission” companies are submitting your site to the most popular search engines? Or if they are even placing you in the correct category for your site to be accepted?

Put your money where it will be of most use to you, and investing it here isn't the place. Besides, you can do it on your own for free anyway without having to place a bunch of ugly banners onto your site giving them free advertising.

FFA Sites:

Are you serious? These are total junk at this internet age. They do nothing successfully for you except waste your time at the very least. The worst thing you can do is ever think about posting your site URL on one of these.

They don't work at all. And if you don't know what an FFA site is, then consider yourself a very lucky person. All these are are sites that list a huge amount of site links from lots of other hopefuls trying to send prospects to their site.

It isn't targeted to any one specific group of people either. All the links are usually just jumbled together in one huge link list. Now, honestly, how effective do you think this is going to be if you are the 2,145 link on that list?

These are just a few of serial “time wasters”. While there are more, these are the most common types. My advice is to stay away from them if you can.

Let me know if you agree or not.

    I reckon Steven Wagenheim will be along any second to point out that he does, in fact, make money with safe lists and FFA ads.
