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! :-)

As far as I’m concerned, Darren Olander is like the king of viral list building and mailers, and I’ve always been a big fan of Darren’s stuff. I use most of his programs regularly and usually get a great response when I do, and he’s been paying me commissions month after month, without fail, for several years now since I took part in the launch of the fabulous Adchiever.

I’ve also really enjoyed using List Surfing both as a traffic exchange and mailing resource for years, and more recently have been making good use of his Viral Nugget, which was re-launched last year. If you’ve gone through the List Builder Training videos in ClickTrackProfit (which every CTP member should), then you already know Darren really knows his stuff when it comes to viral list builders and mailers.

So when I found out Darren was re-launching one of his older programs that’s been around since 2008 and has been one of my favorites for many years, BuildMyDownlines, I was super excited. Then I got even MORE excited when I saw what he’d done to it!

BuildMyDownlines has now not only been completely remodeled, but it now has an additional aspect to it that wasn’t present before. In a nutshell, you can now literally build your downlines in ANY program with BuildMyDownlines!

And I’m not talking just about building them through the downline builder that’s on the site, oh no.

What BuildMyDownlines has now is a unique “offers” area where members can earn cash or credits simply by joining programs, and advertisers can advertise any site they want to by offering as much or little as they want in order to get signups.

I was already excited about the remodeling job on the site anyway, but as you can see, this new feature is really special!

Check out this very short video that pretty much explains it all:

The mailer aspect of BuildMyDownlines is still intact as well, which makes me happy because BuildMyDownlines has always generally been very responsive for me. I took a lifetime upgrade offer there many years ago and (with the exception of my long vacation away, of course) have used it ever since, and always been very pleased with it each time I mailed out.

So I have no doubt that this revamped version of BuildMyDownlines will probably be even better, and definitely with the new feature of the offers area to boot! I expect the new feature is really going to be rocking and active for a long time to come.

In any case, the new version of BuildMyDownlines has just opened this morning. Click HERE to check it out… and go build your own downlines with BuildMyDownlines!

Lots of stuff going on in TE Land and thereabouts this week… let’s take a quick look, shall we?

Today is Thursday, so that means Mike Paetzold and Jerry Reeder are having their weekly training conference for Get Referrals Fast on business building… but you don’t have to be a Get Referrals Fast member to learn how to build a business from the experts as the weekly training is free and open to the public.

And it just so happens tonight re-starts their four-part series, the first session tonight being about Creating the Big Red Easy Button (you know, the one everyone who’s trying to make money online is looking for).

They’ve also addressed some of the occasional questions and doubts people sometimes have about the GRF training this week on their blog, so if you’ve been wondering some of the same stuff, you might want to give this post at the Get Referrals Fast training blog a look-see (sorry, post is no longer available).

In any case, feel free to drop in and join the conference tonight (Thursday) at 8pm EST here:

==> Get Referrals Fast Conference Room (sorry – link no longer available)

Again, it’s free, totally open to the public, you can just listen and watch if you want – and if you have any questions at all just about online marketing in general or the program itself, bring them – Mike loves to answer questions! And… there are turtles! (For real!)


A DOWNLINE BUILDER HERE, A DOWNLINE BUILDER THERE, DOWNLINE BUILDERS EVERYWHERE: I mentioned the other day that new SWAT commish James Holmes had added a new downline builder to SWAT Traffic – well, it’s grown pretty huge since I first looked at it early in the week, and James said last night at the SWAT Conference that he’s got even MORE programs to add. So again, if you’re a member, you should probably go check it soon (Friday would probably be a good day) and update your own downline builder at SWAT.

Cookie Jar Hits also recently added a new downline builder to their site, so you’ll want to check that one out as well, especially since you can add your OWN choices of programs to it. I’m not entirely sure how many programs you can add as a free member (probably just one) but if you’re upgraded, depending on your upgrade level, have several options – 3 programs for Sugar Cookie Basic upgraded members, 6 programs for Chocolate Chip Pro members, and 10 programs for Fortune Cookie Elite.

Owner Marcy McManaway is a TE Live regular (though we haven’t seen much of her in a while and we miss her!) and Cookie Jar Hits is sweet (pun intended), so check it out!


YOU GOTTA HAVE FRIENDS: Last night’s SWAT Conference in the SWAT Traffic room was wildly interesting, by the way – and a very informative presentation by owner James Holmes and some really good discussion afterwards and I think we were there for nearly two hours almost, which, among other things, included Jerry Reeder asking Tony Tezak if he could bring his imaginary friends to Tezak Traffic Power conference next Wednesday. Ha!


BRING A FRIEND… OR TWO… OR THREE! Speaking of which, Tony Tezak has put up a challenge to anyone planning to attend Tezak Traffic Power conference next Wednesday – he wants everyone who attends to try and bring a friend, and if you bring a friend with you to the conference, he’ll add 100 credits to their TTP account AND 100 credits to the friend that brings them’s account.

In fact, if I’m not mistaken (Tony, please correct me in comments if I’m wrong and I’m sorry if I am!!) – I think he originally said he wanted to see everyone try to bring THREE friends and that he would honor the credit deal for up to three friends and their sponsor. (And if I totally got that wrong, please disregard that… my mind and my hearing may not be what they once were in my advancing age!)

So bring a friend to TTP conference next Wednesday night and get credits! It’ll be right here at 6:30pm EST on Wednesday, November 17th:

==> Tezak Traffic Power Conference Room


THE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK ARE HOPPING: Word on TE Street is that activity and traffic is really hopping at two of TE Land’s newest traffic exchanges, John Bell’s Traffic Swirland Eric Holzwarth’s Lucid Leads. Traffic Swirl also has surf chat for those of you who are into that. If you’re not a member of both, you should be, because both of these TEs seem to be really growing fast and super active!


OK, well, my offline life has once yet again taken a sudden and unexpected crazy turn so I’m really not sure how much I’m going to be around and posting the rest of this week and next (though probably most of next week except for the weekend).

Have a good Thursday, everyone, and don’t forget to come by Traffic Exchange Live this afternoon! Ask Jon to say “Polish sausage” for you (that’s exactly what he’s saying here):

*** Traffic Exchange Live broadcasts live weekday afternoons from 3-4 pm EST ***


ATTRACT PEOPLE TO YOUR LIST WITH THE LEAD MAGNET: Unless you were hiding under the ol’ proverbial rock again, you probably know that Stefan Berg’s new program The Lead Magnet came out yesterday.

Now granted, there have been several viral list building/mailer programs that have come out on this same script in the last six or so months (and actually, just about all of them have been performing extremely well for me), but The Lead Magnet has some really cool stuff that’s all its own. Stefan is big on making helpful informational videos and there are a BUNCH of them in the site, as well as several other goodies you won’t find anywhere else.

(Oh, and be sure to watch the video on the first page when you log into the site in its entirety too – you can get some MORE bonus credits on top of the bonus credits you get on signup if you watch the video!)

Check out The Lead Magnet today and get some magnetizing mojo going for some new leads!
