FFA hosting has some similarities to safelists in that these are also mostly income opportunity seekers. Notice I said mostly. Some FFA posters are just regular folks with websites who are simply trying to get other people to see them. Some of these sites aren’t in the make money niche. So the targeting here is not quite as tight as with safelists. In addition to that, FFA Hosting is not free. Having said that, FFA Hosting can be much more profitable than safelists.
Is the question …why?
The answer has more to do with the structure of FFA Hosting as opposed to Safelists.
With safelists, you basically are reaching the same member base each day. Sure, you get a few new folks on a daily basis, but for the most part, safelist memberships don’t change much from day to day.
With FFA sites, each day you’re getting a new set of leads. Sometimes the turnover in leads is 100% for certain sites. So you’re reaching more new people each day. There are pros and cons to this.
Pros: You’re targeting more people.
Cons: You don’t have as many opportunities to convert a prospect.
As you know, it takes about 7 shots at somebody before you convert them into a buyer. With safelists, you get quite a few shots at these people. With FFA hosting, not so many. Therefore, you have to make each email sent to these people count. They have to be longer and they have to be more compelling. You want to get them to your site the FIRST time they see your email.
To this end, you have to write one damn compelling email. Well, I have tested tons of these over 5 years and this one beat them all. I am going to share the subject and the content and explain in detail why I use the subject I do. It is perfectly legal given the TOS of FFA sites, which I will also explain later.
Subject: I’m Sending This Email In Regard To The FFA Ad You Posted At <Site Name>.
I'm answering the ad you posted the other day. If you'd like to speak with me about this reply, I can be contacted at the number below. I am really looking forward to our chat.
I know you're very busy, but there is something you need to know about your ad and it's very important. See, I used to post these same ads a while ago myself. I did it for 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. I did it for 5 months straight. Believe it or not, I didn't make one DIME from those ads. Trust me, you won't either. Nobody sees them. I finally discovered this from a retired school teacher in Indiana who also directed me to a site where I found advertising methods that actually work. Since using them, I have made over $197,000 online. Need proof? Just send an email to:
Put "Really Need Help" in the subject
I will send you a Camtasia video of my income PLUS a report on how to set up your business correctly. The video itself CAN'T be faked.
I know you really need help. I've been there. Problem is, I can only help you if you'll let me. So many people are skeptical of others and that's understandable. There are a lot of crooks online. But I assure you that I am truly and honestly trying to pull you out of this mess you're in. You'll either believe that or you won't. If you don't, I completely understand and wish you luck in your search for success. If you do believe me, then go to the site below and pick up some advertising methods that work. I use them and can swear by them. They DO work.
This is the site
If you have any doubts about my success, by all means, send for my video. Go to Google and look up my name. You'll find over 650 pages on me. I'm being straight with you. I know what I'm doing. Running a business online is not easy, but with proper advertising methods, it CAN be done. But if you need more incentive, upon receipt of your payment, I will send you 2 of my books on ad writing and article writing, on me. That's a $64 value alone. Please don't let skepticism prevent you from having the success that YOU deserve. Go to the above site TODAY! Tomorrow you can write and thank me.
Sometimes we only get ONE chance to succeed.
This one is YOURS. Please take advantage of it.

Okay, here is why this subject is acceptable given FFA hosting TOS.
When a person posts an ad to an FFA site, they have to sign off on an agreement. It’s pretty long and quite honestly, most people don’t read it. Part of the agreement reads as follows:
You agree to receive one email from each FFA site in our system that your ad gets posted to.
It then goes into the penalties for false spam accusations and the like. Yes, there are a lot of spam complaints with FFA sites because people don’t read. However, you are covered. For one thing, all emails go through the FFA site’s servers, so you are completely safe. They take all the risk. That’s why this is a paid service.
This email has generated tens of thousands of dollars in affiliate sales and I’m not even really an affiliate marketer, having created my own products now for several years. Still, this is one of my most successful campaigns and I will continue to use it for as long as FFA sites are in existence.
Which brings us to the nitty-gritty of this whole thing.
What are the BEST FFA sites?
There are a few. One you can join on your own if you’re so inclined. It’s VERETEKK and it’s probably the best one out there.
The others all come under the SECRETS OF THE BIG DOGS program which is nothing more than just FFA Hosting and doing it in a way that brings residual income. I’ve been promoting this program for over 5 years using the kind of emails you just read above. Very effective.
Okay, in the next chapter, I’m going to go over some things about email marketing that you probably don’t know. These are the facts and figures that you need to know in order to know when the best times to email are, among other things.
This stuff is priceless and you probably won’t find it anywhere else.
