ViralUrl email marketing is more than a lottery
ViralUrl email marketing is more than a lottery

Yesterday, I posted about how to get your ViralUrl email open, so today, I’m going to talk a little about how effective their email marketing software is and what you can to do explore it.

So when you have a ViralUrl gold account, you’re allowed to email 3000 other members randomly, every 3 days.

As I mentioned before, because of neon-marketers and the volume of emails sent daily, a lot of internet providers will bounce your messages before they even show up in their inbox.

So out of 3000 you may get 900-1200 emails delivered. It’s still a decent number.

What I’ve experienced since February, when I got my account, is that around 80-120 people actually open a ViralUrl email. Out of those, around 30-60 will click on your link – depending on how good your copy is and how reliable your link looks like.

It’s beyond this post to explain good copywriting, but you know how valuable it its. What I want to talk about is making your links look reliable. I’m going to show you how to transform your weird affiliate links like this one:

into something much more sexy like this one:

1. Log Into your Cpanel

2. Click on Redirects

3. Choose PERMANENT 301

5. Choose any domain (that does not have WordPress installed)

6. Pick an extension (/something – relevant to the product)

7. Add your affiliate link to the box that says “redirects to”

And that’s it!

The best part about it is that if you have a domain that is closely related to the product, the link looks way more professional and clickthrough averages go really high.

If you want to try it out, go sign up for a ViralUrl account now.

Any questions or concerns, post your comments here and I’ll get to them asap.

How To Build A List For Email Marketing Quick: ViralUrl Results

Increase Your Asset - Grow an Active List
Increase Your Asset - Grow an Active List

The most important asset a internet marketer has is a responsive list of customers. Whether on email, twitter, or facebook, building a list of active subscribers is a strategy that any marketer should focus on since the beginning.

The average list-building experience starts slowly, as traffic starts pouring into landing pages and prospects subscribe to your list.

However, this strategy can be frustrating in the beginning, while traffic is still shy.

That’s when a respected list-building platform comes in handy. List-builders are communities of professionals that subscribe (or buy access) to receive and send messages within the community. Basically, List-Builders are a pool of like-minded professionals looking to improve their businesses, get more traffic, and make more money.

My Favorite List-Builder

I’ve written before about my results with list-builders before, so today I want to share specifically my results with ViralUrl.

For $197/year, ViralUrl allows email blasts every 3 days to 3000 random members in their list.

I’ve been utilizing their services since february, and I’m very satisfied with the results.

Previously, I’d been promoting Magnetic Sponsoring, because of the high conversion rates, and for each blast, I’d generate 10+ leads and about a sale/week from MS alone. That’s $80/month, which would cover my initial investment in 2.5 months, leaving me 9.5 months to profit from the ViralUrl services.

Now, I’ve switched the focus to my own training, the Expand Your Income manual – and even though my landing page does not convert as well as Mike Dillard’s (what’s new?) the prospects I receive are much more targeted because they want to know ME, not magnetic sponsoring or Mike Dillard.

So here are the updated results: depending on my email copy (I keep experimenting, which makes for a lower average), I may get anywhere from 100-150 visits, and 6-10 leads. I understand this is not outrageously effective, but it brings me great prospects, and I’m building my own list, expanding the reach of personal branding even further.

If you’re just starting up, and you’re not yet getting the traffic you want, I highly recommend ViralUrl. And if you have a bit more to invest, you can get multiple accounts, and send blasts everyday!

Either way, be sure to offer something valuable in exchange for your opt-ins. Folks in list-building services are already in the industry and are probably not looking for another home business – they’re looking for training, consulting, tips.. So provide them with something highly beneficial and your results will speak for themselves.

To growing your list the smart way,
