My favorites are so long I can't find anything in them without a huge search. Is there a GDI favorites I missed somewhere? Otherwise you can print out stuff like this and keep it in a file.

I am wondering, a buddy of mine who is on my upline got in trouble recently for spamming. Him and I send out the exact same emails with same programs and all, we just send the invites to different people.

But, my real question is, does GDI reactive your account and tell you exactly what you did wrong after you respond to the abuse email they send you? I just want to know because it could save me future trouble.

Thanks

Hello CJ,

You'll be hit with a fine and after it's paid, your account may be considered for re-activation. This is an issue that needs to be directed to GDI's Support Team.

I really want to understand the rules for leads.  The GDI leads are too expensive.  Can you purchase leads from a good company and not have to worry about spam?  Can you send them through the GDI invite? Will someone please help clear this up.  I always heard that the purchased leads, are compiled from people who wanted information about work-at-home.  I really can't understand how anyone could send out 100 invites a day without some other type of puchased leads.  If you aren't allowed to do this, how can you afford to generate enough traffic.   Help!!!! thanks, I'm a newbie.

I believe rotators are involved with traffic exchanges? If not, please correct me. In this case no, it's not considered spam because you have to sign up as a member at these exchanges and, the whole point is to view sites so that you generate traffic to yours.

   Not Spam ...BUT make sure you do not violate the site terms and agreements, then you do get negetive feedback.
 Rotators,  have the capability of "rotating" multiple sites off of one url

Now 95% of the sites have thier own rotator and Do Not Allow you to use your own. And you can get banned

So READ the terms and agreements carefully before trying to submitt you own rotator if you have one you use.

I don not submitt rotator urls because you can get in trouble ...I do however use a homepage rotator....every time I open up the window I advertise on a different site..very useful if you have multiple accounts this way you can actively use each site by keeping them in a rotation and not violate the sites terms and agreements.        Hope the is helpfull

I have a question regarding the spam policy..... 

Any e-message sent or posted via chat rooms, instant messaging systems, newsgroups, message boards, or Usenet is Spam

My question is in regards to msg boards.  I believe I have seen posts to the effect of posting on msg boards or forums.  I can see chat rooms, IM's ect. But I have to admit that I did post banners on a couple voy forums.  They were business opportunity forums (voy was the first free site I found) If I'm not mistaken most of them said post your opportunity type of thing.  So what is the rules about that?   I want to make certain, I don't want to be a SPAMMER!!!  As I get WAY to many of them myself and don't like them!! But now here's a question.....  If someone sends you an email regarding an opportunity can we send ours to them?  "YEAH yours sounds nice but mines better!!"  LOL

Hello Sherice,

Always read the Website's user agreement and privacy policy to be on the safe side. Different forums, different rules.

Voy's user agreement clearly states the following: You will not engage in unsolicited advertising to other members or users of VoyForums to buy or sell any products or services.

Buying 100'000 GDI business cards and dropping them over a residial area from a C-130 transport plane is also considered spam.
I'm surprised its never been mentioned before. Now that could get you into real trouble!

 Grin


Spam is also not very effective at recruiting members - how many of you actually take anything that lands in the spam folder seriously?
That's where personal contact comes into play - just knowing the person can make a GDI invite really legit.

I'm currently sneaking in links to GDI's hosting services on my websites. Just to be safe, I keep links at least one click away from the main page, so that if my personal pages are linked from forums, it isn't considered as spam.

Fortunately I haven't had any spam complaints after sending out up to 75,000 leads since I started in February. I have now stopped the purchased lead programs since I am concerned over spam.

Wow - that's a big number of leads. How were your results? Even if only 0.01% sign up, that's already 750 people!

Due to the Spam policy I've only bought leads once, and haven't tried since.

I hope you can't get flagged for spam abuse for using GDI's new leads!
(Are you protected if you only buy leads this way?)

A safe targeted group to email is from safelists. What is a Safelist?  Huh

DEFINITIONBasically, a safelist is a group of people all willing to receive promotions via email
 
By definition then, that means that safelists are what is known as "opt-in". Opt-in is when:

1. People actively choose to receive your message by signing in some manner
2. People can opt-out or unsubscribe from the list at any time

And a better opt in lister is a person that double verifies for thier opt in by filling out and then comfirming with an email. Grin

  And if you want to do some self educating on the subject do a google on safelists.  Becuase spamming "unknowingly even" can get you banned from you ISP even.
In closing I would say Fly striaght and keep Your Name and everyone you represent respectable.
 
Also I emphasize to Read Terms and Agreements to all sites, software, and services.

I am also a newbie with the same questions.  Can somebody answer Colleen's questions?  Thanks to everyone with their inputs. 

Take Care and goodluck with your GDI BIZ!
