Today I would like to talk to you about one of the best viral mailers, the Mail This List Viral Mailer. I have been using it for quite a few months and the best reason to use this mailer is that it actually works! Read on to find out all the good stuff.
It Does What It Says It Will Do
To be honest, one of the best things I like it is it is a very simple mailer. If you are new to the whole “Safelist/Viral Mailer Thing”, then this is definitely the mailer for you. Apart from a few add-ons, it really is just a mailer.
The Viral Mailer
The best part of the Mail This List Viral Mailer is the mailer itself. Firstly, it’s very easy to earn credits, even as a free member. It’s also very easy to use. The mailer bit is like most of other mailers (hint – use #FIRSTNAME# to inser the recipients first name.)
What I particularly like is the scheduler. If you have the credits, it allows you to schedule unlimited amounts of emails, or it does at the Platinum Level anyway. I vaquely remember you can even do this as a free member but I’m not guaranteeing it.
What Else Does It Do?
Tracking And Rotating
Great question and the basic answer is not much. It has a free tracker and rotator which is okay, but if you need to make proper money online, you need to have a proper tracker service. I use trck.me which is pretty good for the money and means that all your links are in one place.
Banners, Square Banners, and Text Ads
I’ll be honest with you, I’m not convinced that the banner, square banner, and text advertising really works. Don’t get me wrong, you shouldn’t ignore the banner, square banner, and text advertising. It’s just that you are not going to be selling much from this type of advertising. I’m not sure how experienced you are at this sort of thing, so I’ll put in a couple of pictures to help.
Of course, I may not be advertising the right things, but the Click Through Rates (CTRs) are pretty pathetic no matter what. There was a test done a few decades ago, when a univeristy in the UK sent out a bunch a people knocking on doors saying, “You don’t want to buy any insurance do you?” They were even shaking their heads while they were saying it. Even they got more than a zero percent success rate!
The Login Spotlight
The Login Spotlight is where you can buy an advertisement that will be shown every time someone logs in. At the time of writing, it cost $2.50, which I have to say is such a low price, I’m considering investing in a few login ads myself!
And that is pretty much it. Personally, I think that the Mail This List Viral Mailer is a great free mailer, and if you fork out for the $50 or so to get the full upgrade, it is a terrific mailer.
