Any idiot can do what I do to make $ online. It's not rocket surgery, it's cake. Also, I like pie.

So you probably know TimTech launched ListViral yesterday. I gotta admit, I wasn’t too sure about this one at first… and you know I’ve been friends with Jon and Tim and Justin many, many years and have always been a big supporter of their programs and products, but I was admittedly a little hesitant about the price tag at first on this one. I’m no cheapskate, but eh, I’m pretty picky about recurring subscriptions in general.

And then I saw ListViral in action, and I just have one word – WHOA. What happened during the first hour or so after I signed up just kinda blew me away.

So okay, let me back up here…

Even though ListViral existed before, this week wasn’t really a relaunch of the program – because the new ListViral is truly a whole brand new and different product. ListViral previously, when it was owned by Matt Baker, was a mailer. The new ListViral is not a mailer at all, and the best way I can explain it is that it’s a viral list building tool that’s kinda like list building on steroids.

If you were around about six years ago during the Clickbank Pirate boom (or, more recently, Covert Commissions), it’s kinda sorta a little bit like those, offering different product packages within to promote that came with ready-made promo materials… but different in a lot of ways too.

Still, though, the push-button everything-set-up-for-you that came with those programs is more or less the same, except one of the big differences here is that the list or lists that are instantly set up for you with a click of a button truly are 100% your lists. Yours, yours, yours – you control those lists totally, forever (at least as long as you have RocketResponder).

You click a button and the e-mail series immediately appears right there in your RocketResponder account, a whole e-mail series of about a month’s worth to get you started, that you can always add more to as time goes on. All yours. (That wasn’t quite exactly true with Clickbank Pirate – they mailed for you, but those subscribers were basically their subscribers.)

The new ListViral setup was built to work directly with RocketResponder and only works with it, which I guess might annoy some AWeber and GetResponse and TrafficWave stalwarts but if you’ve already got RocketResponder (I have it and one of the other aforementioned biggies too), that’s a bonus.

And if you don’t have an autoresponder and/or are a newbie, you can’t get much more simple and easy to use than RocketResponder anyway. (And you can always get this super step-by-step program too if you need help with RocketResponder.)

You get lead capture pages and, in some cases, banners for each package you pick, some of which are only available to certain membership levels. There are three levels of membership – Basic, Club, and Elite – the Basic membership level is pretty inexpensive and you get access to a limited amount of stuff, and the Elite level has access to everything the other levels get plus more.

Commissions are 10% for Basic, 20% for Club, and 50% for the Elite level, and the Club and Elite levels have access to something called the Launch Cloud that can help you virally promote if you’re launching a new program or product.

There’s also a pricier one-time add-on to the Elite level you can get where TimTech staff will literally do everything for you – say, if you’re a program owner and want them to do a custom promotion for your program, they’ll do it ALL, as long as you remain on the Elite plan.

But what I really wanted to tell you about was the List Boost Maximizer, that only comes with the Elite level membership. This was the thing that blew me away yesterday.

So I joined, and then I picked my product packages and clicked the button for each that – BOOM! – immediately set up the e-mail series for each in my RocketResponder account. And that’s all I did. I didn’t promote ListViral or any of the products, hadn’t gotten around to any of that yet.

Still, within an hour or so, I noticed I had three new subscribers to two of those ListViral product package lists in my RocketResponder account… without me having done anything at all!

It just so happened I was talking with Janelle from TimTech at the time about a couple of other issues. I told her what I’d just noticed with the new subscribers and said, “Did those come from the List Boost Maximizer thingy?” and she emoticon-smiled and said “Yep!”

Now that’s pretty cool, for me to have done absolutely NOTHING and gotten three new signups to my lists. That alone is pretty impressive.

How does that happen? Well, if you’re an Elite level member, your ListViral products/lists get promoted on the thank you page of other ListViral members’ lists, basically, giving the person looking at that page the option to check out your product/list. That’s pretty doggone viral!

Anyhoo, yeah… I was a little on the fence until I saw that happen in real-time and then, again, I was just like WHOA. Very impressive, that. Whether I choose to remain at the Elite level in the long-term, I don’t honestly know for sure – it’ll depend on my results, which are certainly looking good based on the first hour of membership! – but here’s the thing…

The Elite plan is available right now, during the initial launch, at a 50% discount from what it will regularly be. That’s a pretty humongous price drop and considering what it can do… well, I have worked pretty hard over many years to get subscribers to my lists, so to have that happen literally on auto-pilot like that with me having done NOTHING yet is a pretty big huge plus.

The Basic and Club levels are also currently available at discounts as well, but let me warn you – all of those discounts will only be available for the first two hours after you join. So be prepared for that in advance (and the Basic and Club levels don’t get the auto-pilot-ness of the List Boost Maximizer either, so you might wanna consider the Elite while it’s at the 50% discount!).

I’ll add here before I go that they admittedly probably need to add a little descriptive “what is this?” FAQ-type info ASAP, ‘cos I foresee that as ListViral gets promoted more and more outside of the general TimTech/CTP realm and into non-TE marketing, as well as to people in TE Land who aren’t able to attend the daily conferences, they are probably going to get overwhelmed with support tickets asking what the Launch Cloud or the List Boost Maximizer and other extras are. But I’m certain they’ll be adding FAQ-type info soon (and Janelle, Brenda, Tom and even Jon aren’t generally terribly hard to find anyway).

In any case, yeah, sorry for the long review – I really am trying to get away from very lengthy posts as a rule – but there was a lot to cover here if I was going to give a thorough product review on my initial impressions of ListViral. And now I have!

So if you’ve a mind to, check out ListViral and see what you think! Have a good weekend, and I’ll be back for sure next week ‘cos I have something very educational on the back burner I need to write about before I explode… ha! See you then! :-)

Well, I’m just under the wire almost in posting this today (forgive me, I’m still running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to catch up, chasing my tail, and all kinds of other cliches I’ll not bore you with… but I wanted to get this posted this afternoon so anyone interested could come.

Russell Stockley’s latest venture, Fresh, is beginning tonight at 8pm ET on Spreecast, and will be on every weeknight (except for Thursday, when Russell hosts Cuppa Time at 8pm ET on Thursdays) at the same time. You can check Fresh out (and subscribe to the Fresh newsletter) here:

==> Click here to check out Fresh (and be sure to subscribe for updates while there!)

What is Fresh? Well, it’s going to be around a 30-minute broadcast daily with Russell (who we all know is one of the best online broadcast hosts around), where there will be discussion of marketing, branding, list building, design, and whatever else that can help you push your business to the forefront. There will also be guest speakers from the TE and mailer industries and other such stuff most days, Russell says.

There will also be prizes given away daily (and you know how much I like giving away prizes myself, well, I like winning them too tho!)… so you really, really, REALLY want to try to attend Fresh when you can. Russell says there will be prizes given away such as Splash Page Design, Startpages, Login Spotlight Ads, Featured Site Ads, advertising banner impressions, and more.

So be sure to stop into Fresh tonight at 8pm ET if you can, you might win something! As I am typing and posting this now, it’s only about 30 minutes away right now. And be sure and subscribe to the newsletter while you’re on the page, and add Fresh to your daily to-do and where-to-be list!

This will be a quick one today. I’ve been struggling with a bit of basic writer’s block kinda sorta – lots of posts in my head lately that just won’t seem to come out through my typing fingers. I’m trying to get myself back on a little bit less scatterbrained level, but – well, you know, I’m blonde, so. (shrug) :-)

What I really did want to jot a quick note about though, before any more time passes, was something you may already know – or may not – about Sunny Suggs’ new mailer – the one I wrote about a few weeks ago when it launched.

This should be especially interesting to you if you’re a ClickTrackProfit member, and especially if you’re on one of the CTP Teams…

So – did you know you can get CTP XP at My Free Resources now, just by sending out a mail through it?

Yep indeed. If you’re a CTP member (and fill in your CTP username in your profile at My Free Resources), you can get 1000 XP for every mail you send out through the mailer.

Even cooler – if you’re Kore4, then you of course will get FOUR TIMES the XP. (That’s 4000 XP per mail… and even more depending on what your team bonus happens to be at the time.)

Even cooler than that – if you upgrade (and the upgrade options are incredibly inexpensive), you can mail lots and often and get lots MORE XP. (And not only that, but if you’re upgraded you can mail to a whole lot more people, and thus have more eyes on whatever you’re promoting).

So, it’s an XP win-win, yeah? Some of the easiest XP you can get, no doubt.

And even if you’re not a CTP Teams member or not the least bit interested in XP – My Free Resources is still a fabulous new mailer, and it’s just been growing and growing ever since it opened.

Now all that said – I know several CTP Teams members did already join My Free Resources under me, so if you are one of those wonderful and lovely folks, I do hope you’re taking full advantage of gaining the XP through mailing with it, as well as taking advantage of what’s a great opportunity to promote your program or opportunity.

And if you haven’t joined yet, why not just go ahead and join now? Take a look at My Free Resources today and get to mailing your face off and getting more eyes on your promotions!

(And my own XP offer is still good if you join and/or upgrade – 500 XP if you join, 5000 XP now if you take an upgrade – just send me a Private Message to LYNNM while inside My Free Resources with your CTP username, and I’ll get your XP to you within 24 hours or so!)

Have a great weekend everyone – I aim to be back Monday with a fresh new post about I dunno what quite yet, but it’s probably going to be something that’ll make you laugh (and make me look even blonder than I already am)… stay tuned!
