    Guys instead of running an ad with link to a redirect that hides the referer why don't you just run the ad to a email address preferably a gmail account.

    Set the gmail account on vacation responder. Set the gmail vacation response with the pitch. When they respond to the ad a email with the affiliate link gets sent to them automatically.


    Anyone doing this and if so how well are you doing?

    it works , but better set up autoresponder system with nice sale pitch letters . Autoresponders are better because you can set delays before sending email , which will look more natural then gmail vocation responder. I hope you get the point

    Venn you are Smart ass i seen this for the dating quite a while back. But i never did it so i was wondering how it converts. I don't do craigslist ads all seo and blackhat links to sites where i monetize the traffic.

    I was more wondering what is the response rates of sending them to a email address the instant relayed the affiliate offer. I have seen this a long time a go in book about a year ago but never fucked with it.

    On top of that Venn like i owe you a fucking answer but i make 6 figures annually. So if you are going to be a fucking smart ass don't respond dick keep it to yourself!

    Yes razor basically is you are running the traffic the a landing page with aweber or etc.
    Optin them in and then hit them with offers. Kinda what i do right now. But i was wondering for ewhoring how it worked.

    Aweber lets you respond immediataly or within a day.

    But doesn't let you respond by the hour. Like 6 hours later. Is there any autoresponder that lets you respond in hour increments. Instead of daily?

    Setting a gmail with a vacation response it's not the best think to do because you won't build an opt in list. I know a software that you can run on a vps or something that can respond to your emails at whatever time you set it. It's a windows based software you can run it even on your computer even integrate it with a website and so on. My advice would be to purchase a windows based VPN and run it there. If you need details feel free to pm me.

    honestly is works, but is much better to get your own domain that relates to the cpa offer u are promoting so that you have a nice email address. These days people on CL know gmails are scams very often.

    I would have to agree that unless on a timed auto responder, your ads will be flagged quick. And make the message back as human as possible, you know leave out periods, vary capitalization etc. Don't waste the ad with obvious sales looking pitch, look like an average joe. And I find that regular text ads far outperform hosted image ads, they get flagged quick to.

    But, this all has been discussed before.

    Autoresponders are responsible for 75% of my income online. But i have yet to find one that delivers good and you can segment into hours instead of days. Anyone has one 3rd party not hosted by yourself that does this?

    The problem with this johny is that if you tried everything you read it would take you more time then i have life to test everything under the rainbow which means you only test the most important projects.So its easier to learn somethings by other testing, Hence if someone that has tested things and they are reputable learn from there mistakes and success.

    3 or 4 of your money making posts johny are the most basic concepts i have heard ever. I learned this my first few weeks marketing online. But noobs swear by it they are making money. Articles 30 a day, craigslist marketing for loans or niche related to the niche section. So different people at different learning levels could consider almost all you posts basic. But noobies could think its the goldmine. Its all about what level you are at. Basic for intermediate or advance and new ideas for noobies.

    As you age and you learning level is seasoned everyone looks as posts at different levels. You could search a million times but if no one relays the staticstic data from trial and error from personal testing and all they do is pitch i make money, you can make this much money in a day, etc... its all idealogy, a dream, or what if? with a bigger picture of hyping their on profitable position. In which they will sell you at a later time.

    I asked this with a basic question. I searched and no statistics. In all of my marketing just like others had said on this thread i catch my email with autoresponder then pitch them. Keep them in my funnel. But i don't do this on free classified sites. i do it on my highly traffic sites i own. I was wondering results from bum marketing to see if it was worth hiring a ton of people to do it for me if it was profitable. Or sharing this with people that i know that could put this to use to get out of a hole or starting out online.

    Bottom line if you are making a ton or what ever your results are doing this speak. If you have not tried it then why contribute a post to something you don't know about? We all can google and we all can download the same books you have access to....

    I am guessing nobody on the thread has actually ever tried this. If you had you would know that gmail will autorespond to the CL forward address and not the original sender. It is a problem with gmail. Yahoo will do this but not without the upgraded account.

    I have not tried this for a while but this is how it was about 6 months ago.

    John, does the Cl forward address actually make it to there inbox of the replier? The real email.
    I have noticed as i sell leads when i spam craiglist or my brokers do they get compliants from craigslist of spamming, when i email through craigslist call centers to sell them leads.
    So if they hit reply to a ad. Is there the same filter they have to go through to get to the person.

    I have noticed problems contacting employeers ads through the craigslist system. Spam complaints from there staff.

    What is the results when they reply to ads in mass volume through craigslist system?

    Anyone with working experience in this in the masses?

    Response rates with gmail autoresponder.
    Anyone have hundreds of gmial accounts and doing mass posting on large scale?
