Mobile phones wouldn’t be so great if you would still have to remember all the telephone numbers stored in it, right?
Or if you would have to walk around, carrying a telephone numbers agenda…. That would be awful!
The same way, you should neither deal with enormous lists of emails to be able to contact your link partners!
Or search through your entire pile of messages (and I know you have one ) to find your latest conversation with some partner of yours!
Therefore I’ve put together a small list of features that will make your work easier and will get you addicted to this tool for keeping contact with your link partners.
1. Keep The Contact Info In One Place
You probably have set for yourself the criteria to choose your link partners by. But do you have all that information you need? Where do you get that information from? And if you found it, wouldn’t it be better to have it stored all in one place?
Advanced Link Manager lets you have the details for each link partner, attached to it, right there in the referrers list. This way you will have all the information you need for making decisions available in a single window.
And more than that, Advanced Link Manager also gathers for you, the additional information and the contacting details for your link partners. You don’t have to go search it yourself, because it is already there!
For each domain in the unverified referrers list, it’s enough to click a button and Gather the additional Domain Information: the age of the domain, the categories where it is listed in Dmoz and Yahoo Directories, Contact details and all the other information available from Whois, WebArchive or stored in Google cache.
2. Manage Your Emails
Advanced Link Manager has integrated an email composer. This means that you can send emails to your partners straight from the application. You don’t need to switch to a browser to send an email, you don’t have to export all the time the contacts to your email account and you will ultimately better manage the hundreds of contacts used for link building.
And guess what? You don’t even need to know your partner’s email address because it will be automatically filled in by the application once you have gathered the domain information. You will just write your emails.
And, about that… You can build email templates to use when composing your emails and you can also set a custom personal information to be added automatically to all emails. All that, so you can write and send your emails more rapidly.
Advanced Link Manager also stores all your message history just like any other email client. This means you don’t need to worry about keeping track of your conversations, because you will be able to access, at all times, both sent and received email messages.
3. Set a Status For Your Connections
Each partnership has its own way of progressing and you must remember for each, the stage is in and the terms you have discussed with your partners.
Therefore, Advanced Link Manager lets you set for each of your partners a status: undecided, waiting for answer to link request email, waiting for answer to 2nd link request email, web site doesn’t want to link back, web site is not relevant, and so on. This way you can know in a second, for each of hundreds of link partners you might have, at which point in the link building process is at and what you should do next.
With all that, your link building agenda will be more organized and you will greatly enjoy connecting with your partners. Why miss the fun?
