What is a Safelist anyway?

Safelists are an opt-in email service that allows you to send your ad to their list at intervals of anywhere from once a day to once a week. In return for this service, you are expected to read other members ads. Most are free to join. You may also pay a small fee allowing you to post both more often and to more people.

Open yourself a separate email account and keep it clean, if you bounce emails from the Safelists you will be banned from using them. Recommended is Gmail.com

Be creative with your headlines. A unique headline for your advertisement will help attract attention to your ads, making them stand out from the mass of ads that people will be receiving.

You need to be aware that most safelists are populated by internet marketers, who are more interested in marketing their own products, than in reading your advertisement. But, there will be people who will read your ads and who will respond - just don't expect to make thousands of dollars of income from them.

My Contact Info

Hi,

If you have read the rules for posting ads in most forums, you will have noticed that it is recommended NOT to post your email address.

This is because email harvesters would quickly pick up your email address, and add it to spam lists. For the same reason, it is recommended NEVER to use your email address ANYWHERE publicly online. Not in forums, not on your webpage or blog, not in your safelist ads,...

But as a marketer, you want to show that you are trustworthy when you post your ads. You want people to be able to contact you if they have questions about your offers.

So what can you do ?

Get this great new tool, and you will be able to post your contact information anywhere you like, without worrying about your email address being added to spam lists !

http://www.trackerboard.com/go.php?id=1364&r=PMRBLOG

That is how I can afford to place my contact information below. And it is just one of the features you will find in ProfitsDesk. It will also boost your advertising, and avoid business emails being blocked by spam filters.

It is a must for every online marketer.

Sincerely, Greg

Politically Incorrect Advertising Marketing... at Last!

I have just watched a quick 5 minute video by a couple of guys who are so unreal! I mean, where else on the net would you see two top marketers referring to themselves as "a couple of old farts"??.

Do you think that someone who knows how to sell that much product and is so refreshingly honest could teach you something about selling (no matter what you are selling)? I won't even answer that question... :)

This member site has just been launched, so you can be in at the beginning of an exciting adventure into an internet world that hiherto has not existed ... Honest, no bull advice from a couple of old farts!

You'll have to click below to see:

NEW VIRUS ALERTS

VIRUS ALERTS
============

The Nabload.COQ Trojan spreads through mails that trick users into watching a YouTube video that parodies the confrontation between the King of Spain and the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, during the latest Latin American summit. When users click the link, they introduce a copy of the malware on their computer. To fool users, the Trojan displays a YouTube video while downloading malware onto the system (the Banbra.FCK Trojan or the Banker.JSA worm).

The second malicious code captures the access credentials of specific online banks; when users try to visit the bank's legitimate site, it displays a spoof web page and sends the passwords entered by users to malware creators.

Banker.JSA can also spread through instant messaging programs. To do so, it sends a message to all the infected user's MSN Messenger contacts, with a link and text such as: "vistes las fotos que se sacaron los chicos?" and "sabes de que se trata esto?". When users click on the link, they download a copy of the worm on the system.

Banker.JSA is also designed to copy itself onto P2P program folders using names such as, "Call_Of_Duty_2_" or "The_Sims_Deluxe_" and spread through the network.

The Wallpaper.C Trojan, however, reaches computers with a Windows folder icon. It makes several copies of itself on the computer, and creates several new entries in the Windows Registry. One of the registries allows it to run with every system restart, whilst others allow it to conceal the Search option in the Start menu, the Folder options and other system applications.

Wallpaper.C replaces the system screen background for a new one with a picture of animals.

MSNWorm.BB spreads by sending a message with a link to the infected user's MSN Messenger contacts. When users click on the link, they download a copy of the worm onto their computer.

Instant messaging has become one of the main sources of malware distribution. Cyber-crooks know that these applications are becoming increasingly popular and are therefore useful for reaching a large number of people. To avoid being infected, users are advised to type addresses directly into the browser bar instead of clicking on links.

NEW VIRUS ALERTS!

VIRUS ALERTS
============

Astry.A prevents users from changing the Windows Explorer folder settings through Folder Options. It also displays several messages, one of them at the beginning of the session and another one at certain times set by the Trojan.

Finally, Astry.A modifies the information displayed on the View tab in the Windows Explorer Folder Options.

EbodaR.A is a Trojan that installs on computers by exploiting a vulnerability present in some versions of Acrobat Reader. Also, the Internet Explorer 7 browser must be installed on the system.

To exploit the flaw, attackers send malicious PDF files in email messages. If the user runs the file, a Windows XP command is executed that disables the system’s firewall. The Trojan is then downloaded and run from a certain Internet address. Many are using Free EBook Packages for this.

Once installed, EbodaR.A can download other malicious codes onto the infected computer.

I should also mention in the malware catagory that according to TotalScan, the most harmful malicious codes last week were the Zango and Navipromo adware and the Virtumonde spyware. I have covered both of these nasties in previous posts.

Online marketers sued for sending spam

* Somebody asked me today about that firesale where some online marketers are being sued for sending out spam (which they claim wasn't spam). Is this just an angle they are playing, or is it real ?

Here is my opinion. It's just that, an opinion. I don't know the exact details about what happened, and I don't know those marketers.

* It sounds indeed like a load of hype.
"We have to pay a $xxx for each spam email sent to the defendants. The outcome of this case affects all online marketers, so you really really have to support us now by giving us your money, because you could be in this situation one day. We have the best lawyer in the world who knows his stuff (we would like YOU to pay him to defend OUR case)."

Okay, that's not an exact quote. But that's what it comes down to. They are working on your guilt, using fear tactics, and asking you to pay their expensive lawyer so that you stay out of trouble with your emails.

* I think if somebody complains about emails that he doesn't want to receive from your site, then you stop sending emails there immediately. You make sure that you have a helpdesk to ensure that you receive complaints so that you can take appropriate action immediately.

I have my doubts if they have been honoring opt-out requests. It is possible that they never even received the original complaints. Communication is an absolute priority in business, or it can lead to a lot of frustration and problems like spam complaints.

* A lot of website owners have no clue at all about how email works. Yet they send out 1000's or 100.000's of emails. Not to mention all the spam that hackers send out through their website (spammers are smart enough not to use their own server for sending out spam).

That is why the email delivery report is essential reading. It's the authors own experience with the dangers of email marketing. Like he states in the report: "On the internet, you are a spammer by default, until proven otherwise".

If you engage in mailings to more than a few (50) people at a time, get informed !
EmailDeliverySecret

* Asking people to pay for your lawyer, spending tons of money for a case that you might not even win, while you have in the first place created the escalated problem by sending out mass email ...

Yes, it's possible to encounter an unexpected issue like spam complaints. Who knows, maybe I might even be in the same situation one day. But I doubt that spending tons of money will make their situation any better.

* They offer products to download for the money that you spend on them, so that is a good thing. They seem to have official documents on the site about the case, so it is probably a real court case that they try to fund with a firesale. You get something for your money (although, do you really need it or is it just because they make you feel like it is for your own good to pay them?).

* The whole site makes me feel too uncomfortable to even consider donating. I find it sad that so many people are going to be spending a lot of money without really knowing what happened there. There are people in this world who would be happy with just $100 to buy food. Spending money on lawyers seems like a big waste to me, especially if you don't know that they will win their case. And even if they win it, it is not going to keep you out of spam problems.

** So, to sum up my opinion, they'll have to do a lot better to convince me. I give them my sympathy and wish that they win their case. But I like to spend my money elsewhere, where I think it makes much more of a difference.
(Everybody is entitled to his own opinion of course.)

Greg.

Wednesday

Online Security Alerts

The Holiday Season is just a little bit down the road and the bad guys are already trying to get free stuff by using your credit.

New Credit Card Scam Snopes.com says this is true. See this site -
http://www.snopes.com/crime/warnings/creditcard.asp This Snopes site says TRUE.

This one is pretty slick since they provide YOU with all the information, except the one piece they want. What the scammers want is the 3-digit PIN number on the back of the card. Don't give it to them. Instead, tell them you'll call VISA or Master card directly for verification of their conversation.

Note, the callers do not ask for your card number; they already have it. This information is worth reading. By understanding how the VISA & MasterCard Telephone Credit Card Scam works, you'll be better prepared to protect yourself.

One of our employees was called on Wednesday from 'VISA', and I was called on Thursday from 'Master Card'.

The scam works like this: Person calling says, 'This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My badge number is 12460. Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by ( name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a Marketing company based in Arizona ?'nbsp;When you say 'No', the caller continues with, 'Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?'

You say 'yes'. The caller continues - 'I will be starting a Fraud investigation. If you have any questions, you should call the 1- 800 number listed on the back of your card (1-800-VISA) and ask for Security.

You will need to refer to this Control Number. The caller then gives you a 6 digit number. 'Do you need me to read it again?'

Here's the IMPORTANT part on how the scam works. The caller then says, 'I need to verify you are in possession of your card.' He'll ask you to 'turn your card over and look for some numbers.' There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are part of your card number, the next 3 are the security Numbers' that verify you are the possessor of the card. These are the numbers you sometimes use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. The caller will ask you to read the 3 numbers to him. After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say, 'That is correct, I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have you rcard. Do you have any other questions?' After you say, 'No,' the caller the thanks you and states, 'Don't hesitate to call back if you do', and hangs up.

You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you the Card number. But after we were called on Wednesday, we called back within 20 minutes to ask a question. Are we glad we did! The REAL VISA security Department told us it was a scam and in the last 15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 was charged to our card ..

Long story - short - we made a real fraud report and closed the VISA account. VISA is reissuing us a new number. The real VISA told us that they will never ask for anything on the card as they already know the information since they issued the card! If you give the scammers your 3 Digit PIN Number, you think you're receiving a credit. However, by the time you get your statement you 'll see charges for purchases you didn't make, and by then it's almost too late and/or more difficult to actually file a fraud report.

What makes this more remarkable is that on Thursday, I got a call from a 'Jason Richardson of Master Card' with a word-for-word repeat of the VISA scam. This time I didn't let him finish. I hung up! We filed a police report, as instructed by VISA. The police said they are taking several of these reports daily! They also urged us to tell everybody we know that this scam is happening .

Please pass this on to all your family and friends. By informing each other, we protect each other.

SPYWARE ALERT
----------------------

MyWebSearch was this week's top PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) worldwide. It is designed to install a search bar on the browser and modify the online search results.

The Zango adware, created to display ads while users browse the Internet, and the FunWeb PUP, have been the next most active malicious codes this week.

Nussack.A is designed to carry out multiple malicious actions. Its keylogger functions enable it to record keystrokes and mouse-clicks. It also carries out annoying actions, such as; opening and closing the CD-DVD drive, displaying the "I Love Kasun" message or making the Internet Explorer window flicker.

It uses USB memory sticks, digital cameras and MP3 players to copy itself onto removable drives and spread.

Nama.A also uses this method to spread. It entices users to run it and then copies itself onto the system using the XLS file names, but with a VBS extension. It then conceals all the file extensions, so users cannot tell the difference between the original file and the copy of the worm.

This worm prevents programs from running on system start-ups. It also creates registry subkeys that alter the system performance, and which if not repaired correctly after an infection, could render the system unusable.

Nama.A carries out other malicious actions, such as hiding the Search and Run options in the Start menu, and blocking access to the MS-DOS console.

FlashJumper.M is a worm that copies itself onto the drives connected to the system, including those of the network. It also creates an autorun.inf file on all of them to make sure it is run when users access the drive through Windows explorer.

This worm also creates a key in the Registry Windows to ensure it is run
with every system restart.

Be careful out there!

FREE Monthly Online Income... NO CATCH!

Michael Badger brings you a new kind of affiliate program at
http://www.michaelbadger.com

What is different about this one?

First, you get FREE MONTHLY INCOME JUST FOR SIGNING UP!

You never have to buy anything, sell anything or recruit anyone! It sounds unrealistic at first, but the plan of how this is going to be accomplished is laid out for you right on the homepage.

Basically, it is a profit share for a new service that will soon be launched. A portion of the profits from the service will be allocated to go to the pool of people that sign up to receive a share of it NOW!

This is not one of those profit shares where you HAVE to be a paying member of the service to get a part of it. In fact, once the service is launched, people will NO LONGER be able to get onto the earnings pool list! So, as the service grows in popularity, the amount given to the pool will go UP but the number of people in the pool will STAY THE SAME! As earnings rise, your share will rise too!

YOU HAVE A CHANCE RIGHT NOW TO JUST SIGN UP AND RECEIVE A SHARE OF THE COMPANY'S PROFITS!

No strings attached!

Of course, this IS an affiliate program, so there are some benefits when you refer people…. BIG benefits.

But think about it for a minute - how easy would it be for you to promote an affiliate program if you could tell people there was free money for the taking JUST for signing up?

This is going to be the easiest affiliate program you have EVER promoted!

And here are the big benefits you get when you refer people:

1. You get another spot in the earnings pool for every person you refer who signs up for a portion of the free money! How easy is that!?

2. Plus, when the new service launches, it will be a paid-monthly service. When ANY of your free referrals decides to become a member of the new service, they will be YOUR referrals in the new program, and YOU will receive a monthly commission on the sale! Even if you yourself NEVER become a paying member of the new service! This is an easy way to secure a residual monthly income for a long time!

3. There is a product package at http://www.michaelbadger.com that members are offered one time only immediately after they signup. If your referrals buy that package, you will get a commission on that sale. It is a great package, and you get upgraded to Premium Member for free when you buy it, so a lot of your referrals will probably make the purchase.

So, this is NOT just an interesting pre-launch for the new service. You can start making income promoting http://www.michaelbadger.com right away!

So to just to recap:

- It is FREE to join.
- You get free MONTHLY income just for signing up
- If you choose to tell people about the free money they can also get, you will get huge rewards for doing so.

This is easily going to be one of the simplest programs you will ever promote!

Go sign up now because this is going to be huge!

COMMUNICATION IS VITAL TO ONLINE SUCCESS

My long-time business partner, Orlando Valleyken, has finally launched his helpdesk. He has been working on this for well over a year. He is quite the perfectionist, and his helpdesk could be his greatest achievement. It is an absolute gem.

I have now converted all of my sites over to Valleyken's helpdesk. You can see my helpdesk here:


You can join for free to promote the helpdesk. You get $50 commission for every sale of the helpdesk, and that $50 will be a recurrent yearly commission. Yes. Finally a great product with a great commission.

Here are some tidbits about this helpdesk.
- Requires no uploading. All you have to do to use it is redirect your contact page to your profitdesk page.
- You do not use your own server, so you will not have server spamming problems.
- It is extremely easy to set up.
- It gives you a choice of skins and templates, and changing the look of your helpdesk takes 2 minutes.
- It gives you a passive income. Whenever someone visits your helpdesk, they will be able to get a helpdesk of their own. If they buy one, you get a $50 commission. Remember that this commission will be a yearly recurrent commission.
- It allows you to passively advertise other sites of your choice via textlink advertising at the bottom.
- You can join and promote it for free, but the actual product (the helpdesk itself) will cost you $100 / year (a bargain for the service that you get).

Click the link below to check it out. If you own a website, this is a must have. If you just want to make some money, this is a great product to sell.

Valuable Advertising Marketing Lesson Learned

Today I learned a valuable lesson.

I had bought a pretty cool set of graphics that I could use for my websites. It was low-cost, and it comes with resell rights.

While I was sending out a mailing to my mailing list, I added the link in my email. I rarely use links to other people's websites in my emails.

But the graphics package is a useful resource for website owners, and hoping to earn back some online income from their reseller program, I added it in my email.

But I found that a LOT of my emails were blocked because there was a blacklisted link in my email. I used this online tool to check what happened: I checked all 3 links that I used in my email.

* My own 2 sites: ... clean as a whistle.

* And: The Graphics Package ... yes, you guessed it right: blacklisted !

Result:

* A lot of my emails were blocked just because it had this link in them

* When a mailserver sends out a lot of emails that have a blocked link in them, it also affects the email delivery of the server. It's not a disaster if it happens occasionally, but it definitely shouldn't happen too often. Or my own mailserver might get blacklisted too !

Conclusions:

* Dont just use any link in your emails, without checking if they are blacklisted.

* I could have avoided this problem if I had done what I usually do, used my TrackerBoard link tracker.

The link would have been a TrackerBoard link, and all those blocked emails would have reached their destination instead of messing up my email delivery and reducing sales.

* If you currently use a link tracker, it is wise to check if the domain name for the service isnt blacklisted. If it is, then youll know why you make so little sales.

For example, linkpresent.com is blacklisted, and all their members that use their trackers, are damaging their advertising results.

* If you are a member in sites like safelists, autoresponder services, ...it is good to check if they are blacklisted. If they are, your email ads won't be very effective.

* If you have a website of your own, where members can send out emails, then you dont know if they will add blacklisted links in their emails. If they do, they will eventually get your site blacklisted too !

Many marketers wouldnt even notice this problem. They dont check their bounce emails. Often dont even know what bounce emails are, or where to look for them,
let alone how to fix the problems.

Then wonder why they get so little results from their advertising. Every online marketer should know about Email Delivery. It makes all the difference in your online marketing.

And how do you get started with learning about email delivery ?

EmailDeliverySecrets


So you see, a little, stupid mistake had big consequences. I learned my lesson today.

Thought Id share it here so that you can avoid making the same mistake.

Yuwie Success, Traffic Generation and Online Income

I have been using Yuwie for about a week and have a feel for how it works.

So this is my “Success using Yuwie” post.

The basic way to make money is to generate page views. Lots and lots more of page views.

Here are the three basic ways you get page views:

1) You yourself view a page
2) One of your referrals views enough pages (depends on the level they have)
3) Another Yuwie member views your pages

An important thing to remember about page views is that the page must be viewed for 3 seconds. So moving through pages as fast as you can, isn’t doing any good.

Some tips to maximize page views.

Make Friends

Invite lots of members to be your friends, also everyone in the first three levels of your downline (those are the levels you can see individual members on…the rest of the levels just have a count).

Give Page Views to your Friends

Leave comments on your friends’ profiles, blog entries, and pictures etc. When you do this, hopefully they’ll return the favor and generate some page views for you. Just remember to allow 3 seconds to pass, making sure they gett a page view. Try to keep up with your best friends on Yuwie every other day or so, hit the rest of them at least once a week.

Even if it’s nothing more than posting “Good morning!” at their profile, that shows you’re working to generate page views.

Keep Adding Content

Hard to give page views to someone who doesn’t have any blog entries or even pictures. Add blog entries and pictures of your own for people to use for comments. Plus, you never know when someone will stumble across your blog entries and decide they like them well enough to invite you as a friend.

Change Your Privacy Settings

By default, Yuwie makes it so people need to know your last name or email address before they can invite you to be their friend. Change it so that anyone can invite you. This will increase the number of friends, and page views you will get.

Participate in Clubs

You can make lots of friends in clubs.

Post Videos

You get page views when people view videos you've have uploaded. Post a popular video and you could get many page views.

Get Referrals

Ultimately, this is the way you can make thousands a month through Yuwie.

How Much Can You Make?

Yuwie depends on page views, how much you make depends on how much you put into it. Your own personal efforts can generate a lot of page views and your referrals efforts can generate a lot more page on top of them.

The help file in Yuwie says a full referral tree can earn as much as $10,000 a month. Full meaning you referred 3 people, they referred 3 people and so on all the way down 10 levels.

There are people on Yuwie who do have referrals down to 10 levels, people who have been involved in it since the beginning. For everyone else, Yuwie is still new enough that most people haven’t heard about it. Social networking sites are immensely popular these days, so one that pays you for participating is very attractive.

Of course, if you haven’t seen Yuwie yet, click here to take a look.

NEW VIRUS ALERTS!

VIRUS ALERTS!
---------------------

Of the thousands of new malicious code that appeared this week, this report looks at the Lina.D Trojan, the Kimo.A worm and the Gnome.D virus.

Lina.D reaches computers with the icon of a Word document. However, when the document is opened, the Trojan is executed, displaying a document with HTML text.

This Trojan creates copies of itself in several directories. It also releases a series of files on the system. One of these is detected by PandaLabs as the Leword.A Trojan, while the other runs a copy of the Trojan every day at a specific time.

Lina.D creates a key in the Windows registry to ensure it is run every time the system is started up.

The Kimo.A worm is highly annoying to users, as it causes computers to shut down every so often, closing sessions a few seconds after restarts and causing the system to slow down.

The worm creates an Autorun.inf file in each mapped drive of the computer. This allows it to run every time a user double clicks on the drive. In addition, if the user clicks on any of the right-click menu options, the worm will run.

Kimo.A makes several modifications to the Windows registry, restricting access to Internet Explorer options, preventing use of the “Folder options” and allowing the worm to run on every system restart.

Gnome.D is a virus with worm characteristics. The file is distributed with the Windows default icon for executable files, with the name: “cool_screen_saver”. If users run this file, they will really be executing the virus.

This malicious code copies itself to the system with names like Winexegn.exe and Winscrgn.exe. It also drops several files on the infected computer. If mIRC is installed on the computer, the virus will make a copy of itself and create two new files in the directory containing this program.

All files created and dropped on the computer are aimed at helping Gnome.D to spread. Those created in the mIRC directory aim to spread the worm through this channel. Every time the user connects to a IRC server, the virus sends a message with the user’s nick and a random text. Examples include: “see this screen saver so i send you” or “ i just get new $chan screen saver“. The message includes the infected file.

Gnome.D also spreads via email. It sends a message with the infected file attached and the following text: “Hi dear friend, I want to show you what I has found in the Internet! L check the att ached file for more info. V I have included a program which illustrates hm y opinion a bout things you wrote me a few days ago. check this nice. bye. ; - )”

Also, when an application is opened, the virus injects itself into the code and modifies the entry point so that when it is run, the virus will be activated as well.

If you think your computer might have been infected by other malicious codes, you can scan it free at www.infectedornot.com

How To Get Free Traffic Generation Using Only Free Advertising Methods

While there are ways to jumpstart your traffic flows, many sites don’t have the resources that others have to generate more traffic for your site. Well, you don’t have to spend a cent; all you need is the proper mindset and a lot of eagerness. You also must have the drive and perseverance to do hard work and research to generate more traffic for your site.

How sweet it is to have more traffic for your site without spending a single cent. Now it’s a sure thing that many sites have articles that offer tips and guidelines in how to generate traffic using only free methods. Because it is possible, you don’t need to speed a single cent, it may take time, to say honestly, I’m not going to beat around the bush with you. You get better chances by paying for your advertisements, but at least you get a fighting chance with some of these free methods I’m about to tell you.

Take advantage of online forums and online communities. The great thing about forums and online communities is that you can target a certain group that fits the certain demographic that you are looking for. You can discuss about lots of things about the niche that you represent or offer. Another great advantage is that you know what you are getting into and you will be prepared.

With online communities and forums you can build a reputation for your company. Show them what you are made of and wow them with your range of expertise about the subject, with that you can build a reputation and build trust with the people in your expertise and knowledge.

You can also make use of newsletters. Provide people with a catalog of your products and interesting and entertaining articles. If you make it really interesting and entertaining, more people will sign up for your newsletter and recommend it to other people. The more people who signs up for your newsletter, the more people there will be that will go to your site increasing your traffic.

Another great idea is trading links with other sites. You don’t have to spend a cent. All you have to do is reach an agreement with another webmaster. With exchanging links, the efforts both sites do will benefit both sites. Every traffic that goes to the site could potentially click on the link of your site and visit your site as well. This works well especially when both sites feature the same niche.

Write articles that could pique the attention of people that have interest in your product. Try writing articles that will provide tips and guides to other aficionados. Writing articles that provide good service and knowledge to other people would provide the necessary mileage your traffic flow needs.

Many sites offer free submission and posting of your articles. When people find interest in your articles they have a good chance of following the track by finding out where the article originated. Include a link or a brief description of your company with the article and there’s a great probability that they will go to your site.

Write good content for your site. Many search engines track down the keywords and keyword phrases your site uses and how they are used. It is not a requirement that a content should be done by a professional content writer. You could do your on but you have to make content for your site that is entertaining as well as informational. It should provide certain requirements as well as great quality. Generally, internet users use search engines to find what they are looking for. Search engines in return use keyword searching in aiding their search results. With the right keywords, you could get high rankings in search engine results without the costs.

All of these methods and more will drive more traffic to your site for free. All it takes is a bit of effort and extended man hours. Learn all you can about the methods depicted here and you will soon have a site with a great traffic flow without the usual costs that come with it.

NEW VIRUS ALERTS!

This week we have 2 worms and 1 new trojan to alert you about! MSNHorn.A and Nugache.M worms, and the Legmir.ASG Trojan.

MSNHorn.A spreads through MSN Messenger by sending a message with an attached file to the infected user's contacts. When the file is opened, the recipient is infected and the process begins again.

The messages are sent in different languages (English, French, German, Spanish...). Some examples include: "hihi look at my horny pictures :$" or "oh my god look at this picture :o wowwww". Cyber-crooks use these messages to tempt users into opening the attached files and infecting their systems. 'Photo' and 'secretimages' are just a couple of the names of the files.

MSNHorn.A's downloader functions allow it to download numerous malware samples onto computers, including the Inject.K and Torpig.DX Trojans,designed to steal confidential information. The use of instant messaging as a means of spreading worms has significantly increased over recent months.

Nurech.Z is a worm that spreads in email messages with variable subjects such as; 'hey!', 'OK' and 'here'. With names including, 'self nude.scr' and 'my pic.sc', the attached file contains a copy of the worm, which when opened, infects users.

This malicious code can also spread by instant messaging and IRC.

The Nugache.M worm starts carrying out malicious actions when it infects computers. It can capture keystrokes and store user credentials. It also connects to an IRC server and awaits its creator's instructions which include; denial of service attacks, using the infected computer as a Web server or connecting to an FTP server.

Legmir.ASG is a Trojan that can reach computers in emails or in files downloaded from the Internet. This malicious code is designed to disable certain antiviruses, allowing it to carry out malicious actions more efficiently. Actions include, creating new entries for the Windows registry and creating a file that allows it to delete itself.

If you think your computer might have been infected by these or other malicious codes, you can scan it free at http://www.infectedornot.com

---- DANGER!

There's a really virulent worm being spread at the moment which is apparently the most widespread, most virulent worm for over a year.

It arrives in your email inbox with an email subject line appearin to be a greetings card from a friend, a family member, a colleague, a mate, etc.

If you fall for it and click the link to 'collect' your so called greetings card the you're done for, because the worm is then released into your computer. It waits their patiently until it receives a message from its creator with instructons to send emails out from YOUR Address book to unsuspecting friends or colleagues etc.

This spreads the worm further and also spreads a scam email about stocks and shares, which eventually makes money for the scumbg who initiated it.

There are tens of millions - some say over 150 million - of this
particular worm already infecting computers around the world. Who knows what message the perpetrators will send to it in the future. Maybe asking it to cause damage to your computer and all those who YOU have infected - albeit unknowingly.

Moral of the story?

1. NEVER open attachments even if you think it's from a friend. Confirm with the sender that it is genuine before opening it. That short delay could save you a LOT of grief later.

2. Never click links in ANY email unless you KNOW who sent it and can trust them.

3. Download and USE the very best FREE anti-virus software around called AVG from http://free.grisoft.com Make sure to hunt around the page until you find the FREE version. It's as good as the paid one.

4. Scan your PC FREE for spyware and other identity stealing nasties. Use SpyZooka even if you have another program running already. You'll be amazed to see how much nasty crap your PC picks up. If you chose to delete it all from your PC then you have to buy the software for under $30 to do that.

VIRUS ALERTS!

Shark 2 is distributed for free in various Internet forums and is very easy to use, which makes it particularly dangerous. The Trojans created with this builder could steal all kinds of confidential data from users’ computers if they are not well protected.

Shark 2 allows criminals to specify the server the Trojan must connect to, and set the Trojan to run on every system restart, show error messages or run other files. Also, the tool allows malicious users to perform specific actions for processes and services, such as stop certain services, shut down or delete the user server, etc.

Once it has infected a computer, the Trojan created by Shark 2 connects to the server the hacker has chosen and displays a screen that allows them to take various actions, including commanding the malware to steal all kinds of passwords (for instant messaging services, email, banking services, etc.).

The cyber-criminal can also run a large number of utilities on the infected computer, for example, to modify the registry or edit the host file. By doing this, they could redirect users to phishing or infected pages.

Trojans created with this tool can also take screen shots, capture audio and log keystrokes.

“Malware creators can use this tool to build Trojans capable ofattacking users on several fronts, but always with the same goal: get information that they can easily turn into some kind of financial gain”, states Corrons.

The first worm covered in today’s report is Addon.B, a malware specimen that sends a .zip file called Foto_celular by MSN Messenger. If the user opens it and runs the file inside, they will be installing a copy of the worm on their computer.

Addon.B copies itself to all drives under the name Foto_celular.scr. Once run, this file downloads the second component of the worm, sexy.wm. This malware, in turn, connects to two web pages waiting for commands ranging from downloading other malicious codes onto the infected computer to updating itself.

MSNPoopy.A uses similar techniques to Addon.B to spread through MSN Messenger. In this case, it uses sentences like “look @ my cute new puppy :-D” or ”look @ this picture of me, when I was a kid “ to entice users into opening the attached file, which has names such as img1756 and is compressed in .zip format.

If the targeted user opens it and runs the file inside, they will become infected. Also, all the users in the victim’s Address Book will receive the message the worm sends, with the possibility of becoming infected.

MSNPoopy.A edits the Windows Registry to ensure it is run every time the system is started up. It also tries to connect to other instant messaging channels to send out information or continue spreading.

“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that cyber-crooks are increasingly using instant messaging to distribute their creations. These are services used by millions of people every day, so they make a very easy and quick way of infecting a huge number of users”, explains Corrons.

How to earn credits faster from credit-based safelists

There are two different kinds of safelists, "credit based safelists" and "regular safelists." The credit based safelists far out pull the regular safelists. Credit based safelists work a little differently than the regular safelists. They allow you to provide a link to your webpage in which the reader can click on and earn mailing credits. This guarantees that your page will be seen.

Here are the tips:-

To start, we are going to sign up to some credit based safelists. The first thing you need is an email account. So you're going to sign up with FastMail.FM. You will use this account for your credit based safelists.

This is important as I will show you a tip to earn credits faster using FastMail and Mozilla FireFox. You're going to use the FastMail account for your list address. You may want to "Google" "free email accounts" for a contact address.

Sign up for the Top 5 credit based safelists in TrafficHoopla. Start with 5 as you WILL receive a lot of mail and it can be hard to keep up with. Once you signed up with your FastMail account, you will want to download and install Mozilla FireFox. After signing up at the safelist, wait for a day for you FastMail inbox to fill up.

Then, we are going to log into FastMail using Mozilla FireFox and do an "advanced search." Just simply click on the "Advanced" button.

Where it says body, we are going to type in "credits."

Finally, we are going to click on "search."

It may take a while, dont worry. Just sit back and wait. Once it is done, 99% of the emails listed will have a credit link in them.

Next I am going to explain how to click for credits using FireFox.

Open up you're first email and "right click" on the "click here to earn credits" link. Usually in the bottom of the email.

A menu will pop up. Select "Open Link In New Tab."

A new tab will open.

Scroll down to the bottom of your email and click mailbox to return to your list of messages with credit links in them.

Repeat the process until you have about 10 or more tabs opened up. Make sure that you visited enough time to earn credits and close the tabs individually so you dont close the main tab with your emails. Repeat the process with another group of emails from the Mailbox. Do the above for as many emails as you can.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT TIP.
When posting to credit based safelist (using the credit based mailer) add the word (credit link) in the subject line like this example below:-

Subject: (Credit Link) Are You A BOUNCER?

This is the most important part. This little phrase "credit link" will increase the click throughs. Most people dont use the search capabilities of their email account to find the emails that have credit links. So, you have to tell them that a credit link is in your email.

Hopefully this little trick will get you great responses.
Good luck with your safelist marketing.

New Viruses to watch for...

Pahooka.A worm, the HiddenXLS.A virus and the Sinowal.A ransomware Trojan.

It is very easy to know when Pahooka.A has infected a computer. Once run, it replaces the computer’s desktop wallpaper with a multicolored star on a blue background and copies itself to all mapped drives. Finally, it changes the caption of all the windows opened by the user, showing the text “^_^Anti AntiVirus^_^”.

The worm drops a file that contains code to eliminate the content of folders belonging to certain antivirus programs.

Also, Pahooka.A changes the registry so that it hides the Search and Run options in the start menu, the Folder options, the Control Panel options, and the Network Connections and Printers and Faxes options. It also prevents users from enabling, disabling or modifying the system restore settings. Plus, it disables the registry editor and the task manager.

Pahooka.A connects periodically to certain web pages to download more malware onto the infected computer and runs every time the computer is started up or a program with an .exe extension is run.

HiddenXLS.A is the second malicious code in this report. This virus targets Excel files on the infected computer. HiddenXLS.A looks for all files with an .xls extension on the infected computer and mapped drives, and adds an executable file at the beginning of these files, changing their extension to .exe, so that every time the user tries to open the document, the malicious code runs first.

Finally, Sinowal.FY is a ransomware Trojan. Sinowal.FY encrypts users’ files so that they cannot access them, and demands a ransom for giving them a tool to decrypt the files as well as the decryption key.

On reaching a computer, Sinowal.FY creates a text file containing its demands: if the targeted user doesn’t give $300 to the malware writer, they will not be able to retrieve the kidnapped documents.

Anyone that wants to know whether their computers have been attacked by these or other malicious code can use TotalScan or NanoScan beta, the free, online solutions available at: http://www.infectedornot.com.

E-mail newsletter marketing, here's how it works.

So you own a business and aspire to make it to the pinnacle of success. A great decision on your part. Unfortunately, many people who dream of taking their business to the upper levels of success do not have the slightest idea of how to actually achieve their target.

These days, the best way to enhance your business prospects is to take it online. There are several options available these days that can help you in this regard, Email newsletter marketing is just one of them.

If you are not aware of email newsletter marketing, here's how it works.

An email newsletter is usually sent out to a particular list of people who have already requested or opted in, to receive your newsletter. This is considered to be a perfect way to promote products and services online. Here, consumers regularly receive articles and information about the products and service they are interested in. You can easily improve and make money via your newsletter. Here are some simple tips to follow.

a) Deliver your newsletter: In order to get maximum profits via email newsletter, you must make sure that your subscribers are opening your newsletters. You may think that once your subscriber gets newsletter, they would open and read it. However, this is not always so. They can be easily thwarted by delivery issues. In case: you are using an HTML template style email and not a plain text version, it becomes necessary to enlighten your readers about the requirement for adding trusted senders to their address books. This is because most email programs and email address providers will not display the HTML content of emails if the recipients are not in their address book. Some may not include the HTML content even if you are in their address book. Now, here it is possible that your HTML graphics and important text will not be observed by your readers unless your subscribers have added you to their address book.

b) Find a solution: In order to get your newsletter delivered successfully you need to determine whether HTML is a requisite option. You also need to analyze whether your subscribers prefer HTML in their email. Try to avoid the process if it is an option. In case: you find it extremely necessary to send HTML email, try to offer a choice between HTML and text only to your subscribers. You also need to educate your subscribers to add you to their address books. You can do this by including a message on the subscription page. Also try to add your newsletter to your website.

c) Get your Newsletter opened: This is an important process. You need to put in certain efforts to make sure that your readers are opening your newsletter. Try to make your subject lines relevant to your readers. It is equally important to create a curiosity to your readers. In short, make your subject line powerful enough to encourage the subscriber to indeed read the newsletter.

Following the tips mentioned above will help you gain maximum returns from your email marketing newsletter. You should also focus on getting your message delivered to your subscribers on a regular basis. Email newsletter marketing will definitely help you to earn great profits.

Anti Safelist Views ???

I have to totally disagree with the anti safelist views.

It is true that 95% of safelists are useless, but their are some good ones.
Like most forms of advertizing, it is not the medium but how you use it.

I personally have had good results from safelist. Here is what I do:

I stay away from any safelists that allow auto submitting. If you never
need to go to the saflist to post, or even join for that matter, and you use
an inbox cleaner so you never have to open your inbox, it is very unlikley
that anyone will see your ads.

Stick with credit based safelists, preferably ones that require page views.
Also I look for safelists that have been tested and highly rated by an
unbiased service like TrafficHoopla. Why not take advantage of someone
elses testing.

Set up your mail to be downloaded to a mail program like Outlook or
udora. It keeps your inbox from becoming full, and it makes deleting the
junk a snap.

Set mail rules to move any messages that contain credit links into a
folder named "Credit Mail". Then you will have your credit messages
available to open whenever you need credits.

Most creditbased safelist offer a free of regular mailer option allowing you
to mail without credits. Be sure to try this as well. For some reason I get
a much better CTR with some safelist using the regular mailer than when
I spend the credits.

Many safelists have banner/text ad rotators. Use them. I've gotten results
from these as well. I suggest using a good text ad. People have not gotten
quite as blaind to them as they have to banners.

Just like traffic exchanges, the best thing to use with safelists are simple,
interest generating, Lead Capture Pages. You only have that person for a
second, make the most of it and get their contact info for follow up later.

I have safelist bookmarked into folders that I open up in Firefox making
posting a breeze.

I understand everyones objections to safelists. All I'm saying is that they
can be used effectively. And for someone who is just starting out, who
doesn't have much money, they can be a usefull tool in his marketing
toolbox.

SafeLists that Work...

New Viruses to look out for...

Three new malicious codes designed to compromise the security of computers: two worms and a Trojan.

Gronev.A is a worm with a taste for music. On infecting a computer, it
opens Windows Media Player and plays a song called ‘Lagu’. It also
opens an MS-DOS window with the word ‘Vergon,’, when CMD console is
executed. While showing this window, Gronev.A creates a new user account on
the system, which cannot be accessed by the legitimate user.

It also creates several folders on the system called Backup, Doc,
Secret and tools, and copies itself to them. In order to spread, this worm
also copies itself to every system drive.

Finally, Gronev.A performs other malicious actions, such as closing
Internet Explorer or modifying the Windows Registry to ensure it is run
whenever the computer is started up.

Antihost.A spreads by copying itself to all the physical drives
connected to the computer. If it copies itself to a USB memory stick, the worm
will infect every computer that the device is connected to.

If no DVD or CD is inserted in the drive when it infects the computer,
Windows shows a message asking user to insert it.

Antihost.A creates several hidden files on the infected computer and
creates a key in the Registry Windows to ensure it is run whenever the
computer is started up.

Finally, BotVoice.A is a Trojan that uses the Windows text reader to
play the following sentence over and over again: “You has been infected I
repeat You has been infected and your system files has been deletes.
Sorry. Have a Nice Day and bye bye”.

While it uses this original way of informing users that they have been
infected, BotVoice.A deletes all shortcuts from the desktop and from
the “My Documents” folder, as well as all the files on the C drive until
it finds something it cannot delete. Then, it stops eliminating files
but continues to play the voice message.

It also modifies the Windows Registry in order to prevent any program
from running, rendering the computer unusable.

BotVoice.A spreads like most Trojans, that is, it is downloaded by
other malware or via a malicious web page, through storage devices, such as
USB memory sticks, CD-ROMs or floppy disks, via email, via P2P
networks, etc.

About Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is using the power of the web to spread your message. Viral marketing is usually a low cost or no cost way of spreading information about your web site, product or service to hundreds, thousands or even millions of people. If you have not used viral marketing yet, you are definitely missing out on possibly one of the best ways to market your products. Here are some tips.

Use many forms of viral marketing:

There are many ways to market your product virally. When launching a viral marketing campaign, you should use many different strategies, not just one. For instance, one way to market your product virally is to create an article and add a bio that includes your link.

Once your article is complete, submit it to many different article submission sites. This will help your article be seen and posted on perhaps hundreds of web sites. But don't stop there.

Most marketers have a list, a list is a group of people that in the past were interested in your product or service or bought your product or service and have opted in to receive more information for future information.

Using your list, you can also advertise your product or services to these entities. However, instead of just sending them your article, ask them to help you out. For instance, offer them an incentive if they post your article along with your link on their website or blog.

An incentive can be a percentage off the product, a commission if they sell your product or free ebooks or other helpful advice in the future. Now you not only have article submission sites working for you, but also your opt in base.

Now its time to maximize the viral marketing potential in the forums that you visit on a regular basis. For instance, many people that create ebooks, information products or helpful SEO product post regularly on forums, if you don't have an account, start one up immediately and start becoming part of the community.

Once you launch your viral marketing campaign, hit the forums and start a thread giving free and helpful information. Most forums allow you to have a signature; in this signature you can advertise your product, services or website.

Use this signature to attract visitors to your site or to offer your product for sale. In addition, many forums allow you to post your articles for free, ask for affiliate partners or even start a thread for others to join a joint venture.

Making connections with hundreds or thousands of people is the key to viral marketing, using articles submission sites, your opt in list and forums are just the tip of the ice berg.

If you are looking to maximize your products, services or web site's potential, take a look at viral marketing and how this low cost or no cost way of marketing can instantly create wealth for you.

"10 Reasons Your Marketing Strategy Sucks"

By Susan Payton

If you're not getting the business you want, and you're constantly discussing marketing to no avail, your marketing strategy sucks. Here are some clues to look for:

1. You don't have a marketing budget. Budget? What's that? If you think setting aside money for marketing is a waste of time, you'll soon be looking for employment.

2. You don't have a marketing plan. Flying by the seat of your pants is not an option when you're an entrepreneur. Being flexible is, however. You need to have a marketing plan that lays out what activities you will engage in each year, quarter, and month.

3. You only use one or two channels of advertising. Unless you've hit a gold mine with billboard advertising or direct mail (and statistics say you haven't), you must diversify your advertising dollars. With interactive marketing on the rise, you don't even have to spend a ton of money to get results. Measure where you're getting the best return on your investment and focus there, but experiment in new areas. You never know where your next niche may be.

4. You're the owner AND the marketer (and the accountant and the manager). In order to let your business run itself, you need a professional expert to handle the marketing. People who are in the field know tips and tricks you will never learn wearing so many hats.

5. Your company isn't unique. This in and of itself isn't a problem. It's all in how you market yourself. But if you can't find an interesting spin for your accounting software product, no one will be enticed to buy it. You have to brand yourself and familiarize people with your brand in order to sell.

6. You're not online. Any business anywhere can take advantage of the online marketing tools available today. Blogs, podcasts, networking and Google AdWords are great ways to reach a wider audience, and to keep your customers connected to you.

7. You don't do your homework. If you don't know what's going on in the marketing world, you will quickly fall behind. You have to stay on top of trends and techniques to effectively use them for your company.

8. Your staff isn't well trained. If your sales and marketing staff doesn't know your product inside and out, how can you expect them to sell and market it? It's important to help your staff understand your product so that they know it by heart and can better promote it.

9. You don't network. If you think "networking isn't for me," you're essentially saying "new business isn't for me." Networking is the best way to help people know what you do without giving them a sales presentation. Relationships will grow into sales.

10. You're too modest. If you're reluctant to toot your own horn, you're missing out on valuable PR opportunities. If you've written a book or done something noteworthy, or if your company is involved in a noble cause, let the media know. The coverage can be great exposure for your business.

If these signs are familiar, change your marketing strategy and chart your course toward sales!

The Coolest Click Getting Software Ever Seen!

I have just purchased the coolest ad rotator script I have ever seen. It’s called Peel Away Ads.

An effect like this has always been reserved for the big corporations with the big ad budgets. But not anymore. Now you can have this effect on your own website or blog for under 30 Bucks!

This script is guaranteed to get more clicks for your ads, whether you’re building a list, selling your product or promoting someone else’s product as an affiliate. The visual effect is unusual and draws attention like a magnet. But, just like any other new whiz-bang gizmo, it’s going to be most effective while it’s still new. So grab your copy today:

I’ve purchased resale rights for this incredible software and for a limited time I’m offering it to your for a fraction of what it’s worth. Just move your mouse over the little “Special Offer” dog-ear corner and a discount page will be revealed underneath.

Broadcast Your Advertising to People's Desktops For Free

DesktopLightning - Strengths and Weaknesses

If you've been following what's been going on in the Internet
Marketing scene then I'm sure you've at least heard about
DesktopLightning.com by now.

A lot of people are saying really good things about the site,
but are they true?

I decided to write up an honest review of the site, covering
what I believe to be its strengths and its weaknesses, just
to clear it up once and for all...

================================================================
DesktopLightning.com - Strengths and Weaknesses
================================================================

Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars (* * * * 1/2)

In A Nutshell
-------------

A catchy new viral marketing tool, capable of broadcasting
messages directly to people's desktops. Easy to use, and
caters primarily to those who have something they want to
promote and are looking for a better way to do it.

(Read on for why I didn't give it 5 stars)

1. Initial Impressions
----------------------

When I was first introduced to DesktopLightning.com, I wasn't
quite sure exactly what to think. Everyone was saying it was
going to be more powerful than e-mail marketing, but this
seemed like too bold of a claim.

I signed up anyway, since I usually give things a chance --
that's how I have found the several sites I do really trust
and rely on.

The signup process did take about 60 seconds, as advertised,
and their software program downloaded and installed in about
30 seconds. No long, tedious install processes here. If you
own downloadable software, you might want to take a look at
how quick their install process is.

Right after installing the software, it ran immediately, and
I was quickly presented with a tool to invite my friends.

Within one-click's access was my Inbox, the tool to send
broadcasts, a statistics page, and my favorite, the "Build
Your Network" page.

I'll get more into why that's my favorite page later.

2. Viral Growth
---------------

This is where the site really shines, in my opinion. The
purpose of a viral marketing site is that you should be able
to invite just a few people, and then it will start growing
on its own.

Many sites claim to work like this, but few actually work as
advertised.

I'm not sure if it's because of their unique concept or the
slick implementation, but this site is REALLY viral. Here's
some of the testimonials they got, which I think sum it up
pretty well:

"I haven't ever seen a system build a downline so
fast. I joined your program just to try something
new. Four days later I had a downline of 43 people.
This is unbelievable."

~ Harry Joseph

"I invited just a handful of people only a few days
ago and I already have 48 members on 5 levels below
me. I am going to keep promoting this, but I see it
has a life of it's own now. I couldn't stop my
network from expanding if I wanted to!"

~ David Parton

"This website is so viral - I received over 100
sign-ups and my network is already 5 levels deep in
less than 48 hours."

~ Rene Keiser

Although they obviously can't guarantee results for anyone,
the general consesus is that most people who do get those
initial few people in are experiencing results similar to
these.

I give DesktopLightning.com an A+ for spreading like wildfire.

3. Direct-To-Desktop Broadcasts
-------------------------------

So, once you have the people in your network from the direct
invitations and the viral growth, then it really gets cool.
Now is when you get to broadcast whatever message you want
directly to their desktops.

Gone are the days of sending out emails and wondering if
they were received due to spam filters and crowded inboxes.

If you upgrade to their Platinum membership, then you can even
get exact statistics on the percentage of your broadcasts that
were opened, but the Platinum membership is not the subject
of this review.

Here's how it works -- the DesktopLightning.com software is
what allows the direct-to-desktop communication to be
received. Since everyone in your network will have the
DesktopLightning.com application installed, just as you do,
this is what allows such smooth and instant communication
to occur.

Within one hour of your sending the message, everyone in your
network who is online will receive a notification on their
desktop that they can click to read your message.

Anyone who isn't online at the time will receive it when they
log on next.

I'm sure you can see why this type of communication has been
more successful than email as of late, so I won't get into
it too much here. The basic point though is that there's no
way your message can be lost, overlooked, or blocked by any
filters.

If you upgrade to their Platinum service you can do things
like embed video and sound right into the broadcast, but
again, I'll save the Platinum service for another review.

4. Building Your Network
------------------------

Most sites out there nowadays don't really help you build a
network of people below you. They just throw you a URL and
tell you to run with it.

While this works for most advanced people, it's not something
that's very easy for people who are just starting out.

DesktopLightning.com went really far this time to make sure
that everyone has a way to bring people into their network,
regardless of skill level.

When you click on the "Build Your Network" link from within
their application, you'll be presented with a surprising
number of tools to help you build your downline.

Everything from banners, to popups, to text ads, to invitation
tools, to emails to send out, etc.

Then, they continue to offer something which I haven't seen on
any Internet Marketing site yet -- they have a "Starting From
Scratch" section, designed specifically for people who have
no list and no website with traffic.

If you're in that position, then you'll love this section,
since they detail specific strategies you can use to promote
DesktopLightning.com (or anything for that matter), even if
you don't have anything to start with.

Quite a valuable resource.

5. Not For Everyone
-------------------

With all that said, the only downside to DesktopLightning.com
is that it's not for everyone.

Of course, some might see that as an upside, since it's a more
targeted opportunity.

Basically, the bottom line is that DesktopLightning.com is a
promotional tool. You need to have something you want to
promote or advertise before you can really make use of the
site.

This is all due to the fact that the basic concept is that
you build a viral network of people, and then broadcast
something to it.

But, this "something" is whatever you want, so you must
already have something you'd want to send to a lot of people.

If you don't have something yet, you could start building your
network first, and then once you get something to promote
you'll be ready to launch it immediately.

If you do have something to promote, that's when the site
really shines.

6. Conclusion
-------------

I would recommend this site to anyone who has something to
promote or advertise.

It definitely works, and your downline will grow extremely
fast if you put some energy into getting it started.

The direct-to-desktop broadcasts are a killer app in today's
online climate, where emails barely even get through anymore.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it has
nothing to offer for people who don't have anything to
promote or advertise yet.

If you want to advertise or promote something to a lot of
people in a unique and poweful way, then this site is for
you.

================================================================

At any rate, my general opinion is that since it's so quick to
set up and try, if you have something you want to promote you
might as well go check it out.

You can always remove it later if you decide you don't like it.

Enjoy! :)
