Mailers... A blessing and a curse?

When I started as a newbie I pretty much joined every credit mailer that was free to join. And, pretty stupid as I found out later, I joined them all with my main email address. At that time I had no idea of the huge numbers of mails they send out daily.

I set up filters for those later but not all are filtered out by the filters. So there were still way to many emails coming in my in-box. I have been planning and postponing for months to find a way to use credit mailers more and more effectively. I postponed it because I was unsure what the best way was to do this.

As you may know I am in the Marketers Co-op and one of the co-op partners is The Marketers Co-op give a guarantee for this program, provided you follow the rules listed in the members area of the Marketers Co-op.

I know Bruce long enough to know that he does not partner up with programs and people without potential so I signed up. As I had already figured out for myself a reorganization of my email accounts was needed. provided me a model on how to set it up.

The inside members area of has an awesome tool that saves me lots of time. You can load all your credit links that are extracted from your list mail and contact mails. This allows you to earn credits much faster because you do not have to open any in your personal mailbox. I use the tool almost daily.
The customer support of MySafelist.Biz is great when you get stuck with something.

So why am I still clicking myself silly? For one because many mailers I joined were inactive due to bounced email because I never looked at them.
Second reason is a bit of research to see how many times my banners are clicked and how many views my messages I get that I send out in TAEs. I need credits to send, so thats why.
There is a program for that TrafficZipper that keeps track of that and also has site and banner rotators. 

John Bell's Mailer Ninja is great to store messages to copy/paste and also great to build downlines in mailers.
A propos downlines: there are great downline builders specifically for mailers. For LMFTE mailers I recommend Viral Mailer Downlines and Get-Referrals.
When you are a fan of Maryanne Myer, there is the Happy Downline Builder. You can build downlines in all mentioned programs with your free downline builder site you can get here: SBT MUGged downline builder; its free to join.

ViralMailProfits is in my opinion the very best since they recently introduced Ultisend. Its a toll that lets you send mails directly from your browser but I am still in the process of setting things up there. When I am done with all that I will have a pretty good insight in what mailers work for me best. And which ones are worth upgrading in. Because I have better things to do than clicking myself silly.

Now that I am reorganizing all I am confident I will have good results without 'clicking myself silly'. I will keep you all posted.

I will post a second article when I am done with all organizing and set ups and have tried both TrafficZipper and ViralVitalPro for a while.

Looking in safelists a bit more I found out several things to use them more effectively. I wrote a separate article on that: Did you ever take the time to compare and explore safelists?

Brand New! TE Command Post Links

It is a great service for both TE Owners and Surfers. You can keep track of all your TE Credits and commissions through an easy interfase. There are special downline builder splashes available.

There is also TECommandoSurf: by surfing TEs simultaneously you get a percentage credits extra. Numbers vary daily but can be as high as 100% (usually on Sundays). Click here to check out the bonuses for today.

The latest addition TE CommandoPost Links is pretty awesome.

For TE Owners: your members can now help you promote your joint surfparties by promoting a special splashpage.

Commando Links allow you, as an exchange owner, to do joint promos with other traffic exchanges very easily with a big advantage. You can make a splash page advertising your joint promo to give to all of your traffic exchange's members. Your members can advertise this splash page with THEIR referral links inserted into the page automatically - by us.

All you have to do is make the splash page, add a few lines of code by us, and offer it to your members to advertise. They'll be advertising your joint promo splash page, with their referral links, with absolutely no effort on your part.

Pretty cool, indeed. Read more here

If you need splashes for this great new tool you can get one at WebmiepGraphics. Order the Splash once and use the 5 dollar update service for future joint promos.

I am upgraded in TE CommandPost and it's one of the best investments I ever did. Being owner of a Traffic Exchange and Graphic Designs Service I am a member of many TEs to promote both. I would be totally lost without it. So if you can afford it, join and take the OTO.

Hyves gaat sluiten!

Jammer voor alle Hyvers die geen fan zijn van Facebook. Wanneer ik kijk in mijn eigen omgeving dan vinden veel mensen facebook te ingewikkeld.

Ik kan ze geen ongelijk geven, ik heb er zelf ook moeite mee. De dingen veranderen te vaak en de enorme hoeveelheid add-ons en apps maken het geheel nogal onoverzichtelijk.

Op HollandSocial social is de navigatie erg eenvoudig. Het kost geen uren studie om lid te worden van een groep, een artikel te plaatsen of een foto album te maken.

Lid worden van HollandSocial is geheel gratis!

My Best Advice for starters

Runnning around in circles and getting nowhere is a situations that many marketers are facing. Reason is not only lack of business plan, structure and proper time management. One of the top reasons is simply joining and promoting the wrong program.

The Marketers CooperativeI am doing marketing on a global level for a few years now and I have been in the same situation. I spent time and money on a few programs that disappeared after a while. I wasted time and money. So at a given point I made the decision to start my own business. Although I still do promote services of some trusted friends and partners I am mainly promoting my own business where I have complete control over.

This way I know that what I am promoting will still be there next year and the year after. There are many services you can start. There are scripts for sale for many online services: traffic exchanges, TAEs, advertising services, membership sites and many more (find an overview here).

Starting your own business is of course not a guarantee that you will be successful. Success depends on many factors. What you need to succeed is basically the same as what you need if you were going to start an offline business. The only difference is that you don't need a diploma and a large budget to get started.

Starting your own business opens doors for you. You can set up JVs with related businesses and services for mutual benefit. Partners in traffic generating services and downline builders are very important to spread the word about your business. You need partners and friends to advise you in areas where you lack skills and insight yourself. So how do you find these friends and partners? I have to recite the Bible for that: give and you will receive. Help others when you can. A perfect place to do that is on social business networks. It can be a simple as writing useful comments, sharing content from others and establish personal contacts.

If you want to be certain to get advice that is good for YOU and not solely for the person that gives that advice you may want to join the Marketers Co-op. Founder Bruce Bates and partners like Darren Olander, Tony Tezak, Colin Klinkert, Wincer Song and many others have joined together to offer their expertise and to help you succeed.
