Using a paid Internet directory involves more than just signing up for the service. You need to understand how to best utilize the tools and services a paid Internet directory provides. Following are general tips to follow when you are using a paid directory.

Then the paid directories (listopt or worldwidelist) send a verification email to the customer. The customer must click on a link to verify that they actually want to receive your newsletter. You are only charged after the customer verifies their subscription through the second email link. The "Double Opt-In" feature enables you to receive higher quality subscribers that are more likely to buy your product or service.

Paid Directory Tip #3: Don't forget to include a Signature file. The signature should be at the bottom of your emails.
