Do Viral Mailers Still Work?

Viral Mailers came on the scene about 17 years ago and they have stood the test of time.

Not all Viral Mailers are created equal.

What is a Viral Mailer?

Viral Mailers are programs that you can join as a member, usually for free with upgrade options.

As a member, you can send email ads to other members of the list. It’s like sharing someone’s optin list!

You can either earn credits by reading other member emails or you can buy credits. You then use these credits to send your emails.

How Do You Join a Viral Mailer

I have about 20 Viral Mailers that I consider my favourites and today I will share the first 10 of those with you. I recommend you take your time when starting out. If you have never used Viral Mailers before, there are a few things you need to do and know.

#1 Setup Gmail: You will receive a LOT of emails, therefore, I suggest the first thing you do is create a GMAIL email address to use JUST for your Viral Mailers. This prevents email overload and the feeling of being overwhelmed.

#2 Register & Setup: Signup for ONE mailer at a time, setup your ads in the members area (Banner ads and Text ads) then schedule when you can send your email ad to the list.  Some mailers are daily, some every 2 or 3 days and some are weekly.

#3 Upgrade: You will want to upgrade as you can. I recommend that you plan to purchase a lifetime upgrade to the top mailers once a month. Budget for this expense to give yourself more exposure. Soon, you will have a list of premium mailers that you can use at will!

Join These Top Mailers

I did a bit of a test recently, to show how effective our own two mailers really are! Prospect Geyser Coop and Genie Mailer provide a consistent flow of traffic and leads.  Check out these stats:

As you can see from the stats above, Prospect Geyser Coop and Genie Mailer are in good company.

Below are links to the mailers listed in the stats above:

Email Marketing Evolved!

Consistency is the Key

As with anything, consistency really is key here. It doesn’t take very long to send your emails on a regular basis. When you are an upgraded member, you do not need to spend time earning credits. As a free member, you will need to set aside time each day to open and click the links in the email ads from the mailers you join.

3 Simple Strategies to Mastering Viral Mailers

3 Simple Strategies to Mastering Viral Mailers

Master Viral Mailers With These 3 Simple Strategies

Viral mailers came about as an answer to the spam issue that became quite prevelant in the late 90s. My first experience with Viral Mailers was a program called Herculist and it’s still around today and still producing continuous results.

The reality is that Viral Mailers do work. There are some strategies to making the most of Viral Mailers and I will share a few of those with you here.

Strategy Number 1. Set Up

Every program is a little bit different and they all offer the ability for you to edit your profile, add a banner ad and add a text ad. Do these right away, it’s like free advertising. Members of the Viral Mailer will see your banner and text ads as they send and read emails. Remember to schedule your mailings so you take advantage of the Viral mailers you belong to. The secret to making them work is to use them consistently.

Strategy Number 2. Keep a Swipe File

Actually, keep two. One with your favourite advertising copy and one with the links and logins for your Viral Mailers. It’s so much easier and so much more efficient to keep your Viral Mailers listed in one place. Make note of the login information as well so that you are never hunting for it. Save the file to your desktop OR to dropbox.
A swipe file is simple a notepad file or wordpress document.

Strategy 3. Update Your Captures Pages

Viral Mailers are most effective when you are promoting something ‘new’. So whether it’s a new program, product or service it’s really the new Capture Page that is getting the attention of your readers. Keep your Ads and Capture pages updated. I recommend having several Capture Pages all feeding the SAME list. Your readers will arrive at the same destination and you will capture a larger market.

I hope these strategies will help you master the art of Viral Mailers. They have been the lifeline of my business for many years and continue to produce regularly.

The fact is, the Viral Mailers see new members all the time and so your ad is being presented to fresh eyes on a regular basis.

Remember, the secret to Viral Mailers is using them! Schedule and Send Your Ads, be consistent and you will see results.

One of our favourite Viral Mailers is Prospect Geyser Coop. Our Referral Contest is LIVE and active until October 31, 2015. Signup and promote your affiliate link to win CASH and Credits!

Happy Marketing,

Traffic Zipper Saves Time Gets Results

Traffic Zipper Saves Time Gets Results

Traffic Zipper – Must Have Tool

For the last several years, we have been seeing a lot of “list builder” type programs hit the net. Programs like ListJoe, TheListAuction, DownlineBuilderDirect, List-Twister, ListBandit, ListDotCom, ListJumper, ListQuik, MyViralSurfer, TheListAuction, ViralAdsDepot, ViralAdStore, ViralAdsUnleashed, ViralUrl …

I use these lists regularly and when I do, it’s a process to send my ads to each list. While it does not take hours to do, it does take a good hour!

Until now that is!

Michael Purvis, the genious behind TheListAuction has release a program that takes all the pain away.


Traffic Zipper does just that … it makes your marketing ZIPPY DOODLE easy!

One click, one send and your ad goes out to all your lists!

So how does it work? Simple … I’ll include detailed setup instructions right here.

1. Join Traffic Zipper

Of course, the first thing you need to do is join Traffic Zipper! It is free to join

Click HERE to Join Traffic Zipper

Once you are registered and your account confirmed, you want to Login to your Traffic Zipper members’ area and take a few moments to watch the Quick Start Video. The video is on the main page when you login.

2. Setup your system

Once logged in to Traffic Zipper, you will now need to spend some time and setup your system. This may take you awhile, so do plan to set aside some time to setup your Traffic Zipper account. It’s in setting up your system that you will save countless hours every month!

a. Click on My Account My Profile

Make sure your account information is correct and you list your payment information. Traffic Zipper will pay commissions to your Paypal or AlertPay account. All you need to do is enter your Paypal or AlertPay email address and select which method of payment you prefer. Simple check the box beside Paypal or Alertpay.

b. Setup My List Builders

Next, you are going to setup your ListBuilders and this is where it may take a bit of time. The first thing we are going to do is to define our list builders. This is REALLY COOL! Most programs that have a downline builder aspect simply include all the programs for your downline to view.

With Traffic Zipper, you can choose to list only those programs that you already belong to. The programs you have not joined will not be “active” for your ads to be sent.


By activating your list builders, you are setting the system up to be able to send your ads to the resources through Traffic Zipper. This will make more sense once we get to the advertising steps.

Ok, so let’s start by checking the boxes of the List Builders you want to include in you mailing (be sure to check only the list builders that you are a member of as you will need to enter your login information and affiliate information for the system of each program – this is what will take time).

If you wish to join any of the programs listed, simply click on the link to join, then once you register and complete your setup in that program, come back here to check that progam as active.

Once you select the lists you are a member of, click on SAVE at the bottom of the page.

c. Manage My List Builder Details

In this section, you will see all the List Builders that you check in the section above. Any lists you did not join or you are not a member of, will not be displayed here.

Some things you need to know before starting:

Each program asks for a username, password and program ID. Quite often, your program ID is different from your login username. The system needs both. The username and password allow the system to login to your program to send an ad. The program ID allows new members to join under you through the Traffic Zipper program directly! (Another time saver).

Example, for ViralAdStore, my username is sykaro but my program ID is 22971. The 22971 is the ID that connects to my ViralAdStore affiliate site. If this is unclear to you, please contact me before proceeding as this information must be correct for the system to work for you.


When you have completed entering all your usernames, passwords and program IDs for your programs, you want to click SAVE at the bottom of the page. This will save all your ids.

REPEAT: You MUST Click SAVE to save your details in the system.

d. Setting up the Remote Downline Builder

Still in the My List Builders section, you will see a drop down menu called Remote Downline Buider. This is a section designed to help you build a downline in several traffic resources.

Like all programs, there is no requirement for you to join any of the programs. I recommend you simply enter your program IDS for each program that you are already a member of.

CAUTION: There are a LOT of programs on this list … and I mean a LOT … do not let this section intimidate you … simply enter the program ids of the programs you already belong to.

If you are brand new to Internet Marketing, please join programs one at a time … set them up, then enter your ids as you do this. Do NOT join all the programs at once ok?

e. Setting up your Rotators

This is a really fun part because this is where you can setup a rotator for your main programs. Click on Rotators, then setup your Site and Banner rotations. If you do not have multiple sites or banners, you can skip this section.

Follow the instructions on the page to add your links and banners.

f. Time to Send Mail

This is what the program is all about … sending your mail to all your lists with the click of a button! Setup may take some time, but consider the time you will save sending your ads!

Click on Send Mail

You will be presented with a video you can watch to show you how to use the Send Mail feature. You will also be presented with a link to Check Mail Status On All Hosts

What this does is the system will go and check all your list programs and let you know which are eligible for sending mail.

Once the system lists your programs, you can check the ones you want to send to. The system will tell you which lists can be sent to and if it’s not ready yet the system will tell you WHEN you can send.

Seriously, this is just SO NEAT and a great time saver.

Once you select which lists to send to, you simply enter your ad just as you would if you entered each program individually.

To send your ad, you need to put your link you will be promoting (this is for the credit based lists), your Subject and the Body of your email.

Here is the ad I sent:

SUBJECT: Are You Using This New List Builder


It’s new … it’s exciting and it will

It’s called Traffic Zipper and it’s the
best thing since sliced bread.

All your marketing lists in ONE place where
with ONE click you can send your ad to
all these resources:


Easy Peasy!

Get started for free here:

Contact me if you have questions,
you can find me on skype as sykaro.

Have a great day,

List Building Expert

P.S. … I am using Traffic Zipper to
send this ad to all my lists! How
cool is that?


Once click is all it took to send my ad to all the lists inside Traffic Zipper!

That’s all there is … now that you have your account setup, you have ONE login to come to and send your ads!

Have you calculated the time you are saving yet?
