How to contact webmasters? Firstly, we must find webmasters contact information. 1. Some sites do not show the obvious email address, there is only a feedback form to fill. We could also find out the hidden email address as the screen shots below. http://staff.maosongsoft.com/uploads/5691/90/1/113808917061.gif http://staff.maosongsoft.com/uploads/5691/90/1/11380891702.gif 2. If we cannot find email address at the website, then use godaddy, alexa toolbar or networksolutions.com/whois/index.jhtml to find webmasters contact info. including the first name and email address. http://staff.maosongsoft.com/uploads/6378/45/5/127544480775.gif
Title and Email Address Use different email addresses to send invitation mails. Yahoo is more strict with our email sending. You may choose Gmail.Here are some effective email subjects • Partner with xxx.com • Advertise on xxx.com • Strategic partnership with xxx.com required • Link exchange with xxx.com • Sponsored Ad Inquiry about xxx.com • Sponsorship with xxx.com • Partnership request with xxx.com • Inquiry from xxx.com • Want to cooperate with xxx.com to achieve a win/win situation • Want to set up a loyal partnership with xxx.com • Business development (xxx.com)
Other useful tipsⅠ. Keep an close eye on succeeded partners. Inform partners who promote our site well, once we have special commission program. They will be glad and thank your kindness.Ⅱ. Take webmasters response seriously and deal with it ASAP. Good customer services may encourage the partner to invite his webmaster friends to join our affiliate.Ⅲ. Remind the webmasters again if there is no response after they show interest in cooperating with us.Ⅳ. Install Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger and ICQ. If the webmasters email address is email@example.com, add his email address into your Yahoo messenger list. If firstname.lastname@example.org, add it AIM. Online chat maybe the best way to persuade partners.
