I have seen various folks give away free products to build their lists. Curious about
the setup I have subscribed to quite a few and what strikes me is that most people
do the same thing:
Once subscribed to their aweber newsletter list they send you a thank you mail which
directs you to a download page on their website to download the product. The link is
exposed and not protected or encoded in any way - probably only protected from
search engine bots with a "nofollow" tag.
I am wondering is there a more sophisticated method that can be used in combination
with aweber to deliver free products with dynamic links so that every person that receives
an email get's their own unique link? Not only is it more secure and lets only folks
that subscribe to your newsletter get the product but it would also let you do
statistical tracking etc.
I would love to get an answer to this problem that has been bugging me for a while.
