ClickTrackProfit vs TEProfits

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Monday!

I received a comment yesterday on one of my earlier posts about ClickTrackProfit asking if promoting CTP would conflict with their efforts to promote TEProfits.  The same topic came up earlier last week in a TELive and I thought it was worth discussing here.

Just so you know ClickTrackProfit and TEProfits are both essentially downline builders that target the traffic exchange industry.  Both programs have excellent online training and both can be used to build your TrafficWave downlines.

I think the biggest difference between the two programs is that TEProfits puts more emphasis on using TrafficWave to build your list than ClickTrackProfit does.  There are multiple squeeze pages within the TEProfits members area that you can promote as well as a 25 part email series that can automatically be loaded into your TrafficWave account.  If you are new to list building and want an easy system to help you get started then I highly recommend checking out TEProfits.

ClickTrackProfit on the other hand was designed to be super simple.  Although there is video training on how to use TrafficWave inside the members area the system itself revolves around creating your own custom splash page that you can promote in traffic exchanges to bring new members into the program.

Here’s my CTP splash page that I literally made in about 30 seconds:

By advertising that link on the recommended traffic exchanges my hits are automatically tracked and when I have received enough traffic I can unlock additional features on the ClickTrackProfit website.  It’s actually pretty neat.

ClickTrackProfit uses Adkreator to create your splash page.  If you wanted to you could turn your splash page into a squeeze page by adding your own autoresponder code to Adkreator.  That would allow you to build your list and promote the CTP system at the same time.  Unfortunately at this time there are no official CTP autoresponder emails to accompany your page so you would be responsible for creating those yourself.

I should probably also mention that if you are not into list building you can promote TEProfits with their splash pages and benefit from just using it as a downline builder.  In that sense TEProfits and ClickTrackProfit are both very similar.

So to answer my reader’s question…  if you are already using TEProfits to build your list then you are probably better off just continuing to do what you are doing.  Yes, you can use ClickTrackProfit to build your list but it will take a little extra work on your part create all of your emails from scratch.

If the list building stuff is still over your head and you are just looking for a simple system to get more traffic and make money then ClickTrackProfit is a great place to start.  There are videos that lead your step-by-step through the system and the whole thing is very easy to setup.

What do you think?  ClickTrackProfit or TEProfits?

Instant List Empire

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Sunday!

Well, it’s actually still Saturday night for me.  I am getting my emails written in preparation for the new launch that is happening tomorrow (today now) at at 5:00 AM.

Who the heck launches a new program at 5:00 AM on a Sunday morning?

Guido Nussbaum.  That’s who!

You may remember me hinting about this launch earlier this month.

Well, here it is!

Instant List Empire is a brand new VLB mailer.  Yes, you have seen this script before.  What makes this site special though is the person running it.

Who is Guido Nussbaum?

Guido is a major force in the world of JV giveaway events for list builders. His events are the biggest in the industry and attract thousands of participants from all over the world. He is also the owner of one of those most responsive traffic exchanges around.

Quite simply, Guido brings results!

If you have been following my recent blog posts then you know how  responsive many of the new viral list builders have become.  With Guido behind the wheel of this one I can easily see Instant List Empire becoming the best one yet.

So wake up, grab some coffee, and join Instant List Empire today!

The Best Safelists for February 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to February!

I don’t know about you but it’s weather like this makes me glad I work from home.

I have some big changes to announce this month but first I want to shine a light on one of the better safelist related launches that took place last month.  It’s a site called “The Traffic Button” and it was released by Mike Purvis who is best known for creating The List Auction, Viral Ad Store, and Traffic ZipperThe Traffic Button is a series of free training modules which will show you how to get the most out of advertising with free viral list builders (such as the ones Mike owns).  There is definitely some good content here and well worth the time to check it out.

I also released a new edition of my popular ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  Nothing major.  I just wanted to make sure the content is current and still relevant to marketing with safelist and viral list builders into 2011.

Ok, the big announcement… my tracking script died!

Yep.  I was doing some routine maintenance on the database and for some unknown reason the script will now no longer recognize the tracking cookies used to tell me when people click my splash page and when they join my program.

So now I am tracking all of my links exclusively with TE Toolbox!

The bad news is that I lost all of my data from before January 13th.

The good news is that the new trackers are working great.

Since I made such a major change in the way I track my links I also decided to take this opportunity to make some changes in the way I have been promoting.  Before I was promoting splash pages and tracking how many people clicked my ads and how many people ultimately joined my program.

I decided that instead of promoting the usual splash pages that I am now going to promote a squeeze page instead and track how many people subscribe to my list through that page.

Here is the page I am promoting:

That page is available to all upgraded members of Safelist Marketing Tactics if you would also like to use it to build your list.

The results?

Since January 13th I have tracked 208 new subscribers to my list from promoting that page exclusively through safelists and viral list builders.


Which safelists and viral list builders worked the best?

As always I would like to point out that these stats are a result of my own marketing efforts and your results may differ.  I also have upgraded memberships on most of the safelists and viral list builders listed below which normally produces better results.

Enough of that… here’s what worked best for me:

Hits Unique Subscribers Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 3,407 71% 35 1.03%
Adchiever 1,635 70% 20 1.22%
Quick List Profits 611 65% 18 2.95%
Global Safelist 1,191 38% 14 1.18%
Viral Ad Store 694 67% 12 1.73%
List Effects 405 65% 11 2.72%
The Lead Magnet 660 68% 10 1.52%
AdTactics 2,667 29% 9 0.34%
The List Auction 543 65% 9 1.66%
AdsolutionLine 1,845 42% 7 0.38%
Elite Safelist 1,695 38% 7 0.41%

Not bad for only half of January.

As usual, if you are not already a member of State of the Art Mailer… oh boy are you missing out!

Adchiever also continues to rock.

I am really impressed this month by Quick List Profits.  While this is still one of the newer viral list builders the conversion ratio is the best on the list.  I don’t know what Kym Robinson is doing over there but it’s definitely working!

That’s all for this month.

Keep your eyes peeled on Feb 13th for a brand new viral list builder launch that is definitely going to make some big waves.  Also be back here next month to see what kind of results I get from a full month of building my list with safelists and viral list builders.
