Safelist and Viral Mailer Tips

Hello Safelist and Viral Mailer Marketers,

 

Today I want to give you some tips and tricks I use to maximize my use of Safelists, Viral Mailers and Solo Ad Sites.

 

First let me say that I use these types of site on a daily basis and I get good results from them, but they MUST be used properly to get maximum results.

Almost all of the sites I use are the credit based sites. You earn credits by clicking the link in the email so that you can sent to the list with your earned credits. For most of these sites it is a 1 to 1 ratio. I credit used per member emailed.

 

The #1 MISTAKE people make is long drawn out emails that go on for days! DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME, NOBODY WILL READ IT!!! Most users of these site are just looking for the credit link at the end of the email and you will actually tick them off if they need to scroll and scroll to get to that link.

 

KEEP IT SHORT AND TO THE POINT! Don’t give away to much information. You don’t want them to make a decision about you offer based on your email. You want to pique their intrest so the will click the link and go to your sales page. A very good friend of mine once told me a very import sales concept. “Sell the sizzle not the steak!”

 

Many of these sites allow html emails. USE IT! I like to use

Bold, Colorful, Large Type.

Catch their attention! I also avoid images as many people and email servers block images. Plus it will slow down your load time.

 

I am an upgraded member of Viral Mail Profits and I use this site to send 95% of my list sites. This is an incredible platform that will store all of you list sites, ad copy, and statistics in one location. Plus, they have a wonderful browser add on called Ulti-Send that will save you a huge amount of time using these sites.

 

Let’s move on to how to maximize your credit earnings so that you can send your ads to the members of these lists.

 

If you don’t already have one get a Gmail account. This is the best email server for safelists because of its large capacity to receive email and very low bounce rate. Many of these sites require a gmail account. I set up filters in my Gmail account so that each different list goes to it’s own folder

 

Turn on the shortcut keys. When you open one of your folders and click on an email you can advance to the next email by just clicking on the J key. This really speeds up going to the next email.

 

If your mouse has a middle scroll wheel, when you move your curser over a link and click the wheel the link will automatically open in a new tab. This is not just for emails it works on all links. TRY IT HERE!

 

I  like to open 10 emails at a time then go through them to click the credits links.

 

I also use handy tool call Quick Tab Change to move to the next tab with the click of one button on your keyboard. When you open the app there are several keys to choose from for the tab advancement.

 

I hope you find these tips useful and time saving.

Come on in and Join A Team!

Hello Everyone,

Tornado Traffic now has Team Surfing. Come join a team!

What is a Team?
A Team is simply a group made up of active Tornado Traffic members (up to 10) seeking to network with each another and gain greater rewards based on their overall surfing activity.

How can I join a Team?
If you have not received an invitation from a Team Captain, you may ask to join one by clicking the “Top Teams” tab. In the column where it says “Join”, simply click “Ask Captain” once you have found a Team you are interested in. It is up to the Team Captain to accept or deny your request. Team Captains cannot join Teams outside of their own team.

How do I start a Team?
Only Upgraded members [F3 and above] have the option to start a Team. To create one, simply click the “Start a Team” tab, name the Team, then browse the “Top Members” list to network with members of your choice.

What are Activity Points?
Activity Points are similar to a score that adds up every week. They are based on your surfing activity at Tornado Traffic. For every 20 page views you get 1 Activity Point for your Team.

At the end of the week 1 Activity Point = 1 Bonus Credit for the Team! (Team Rewards). The more active you and your fellow Team members are, the greater the rewards available for you!

Team Rewards
Team rewards come in the form of extra traffic awarded at the end of each week. (Sunday at Midnight). The amount awarded depends on overall Activity Points accrued by the Team during the week.

(1 Activity Point = 1 Bonus Credit)

Winnings are distributed evenly among the active members of the Team. If you have not earned any activity points in the week you will not get a share. The bigger and more active a Team is, the larger the reward will be for the Team and all of its members.

Etiquette
While networking with other members of your team, please be mindful that we aim to maintain a professional and friendly atmosphere. Do not abuse the chat or messaging features!

Tips for Team Captains:
Maximizing Effectiveness: Total Activity Points determine the rewards each Team receives at the end of each week, so its in the best interest of the Team Captain to network with the most active members and invite them to take part in your Teams activity.

At any time, members may ask permission to join your Team. As a Team Captain, you have the option to accept or deny requests. Alternatively, you also have the option to invite members of your choice by browsing the Top Members list or removing inactive members at any time. Teams have a limit of 10 members so choose wisely!
