Hello and Happy Monday!

I had a pretty rough weekend and I am feeling a bit under the weather today but I wanted to give a quick shout out for everybody who came out on Friday and listened to my live interview with Sterling Valentine as part of his List Laser 30 Day Listbuilding Challenge.

In case you missed it… here it is!

It was a little nerve wracking but I think it went well.  Somehow Sterling managed to get me talking for a full hour which not many other people have been able to do.  Hopefully I dropped a few good nuggets in there too.

I’m not sure if I will ever get fully used to doing these interviews but this was a topic that I am very passionate about and I hope some people found it helpful.

If you have not yet started building your list Sterling Valentine’s List Laser program is a great place to start.  Not only is it free to join but with 30 days of expert training you can’t really go wrong .

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?

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.

Click Track Profit Launches Quietly

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Monday!

As the giant ice storm is slowly moving into the midwest I wanted to take this  opportunity to let you know about a very interesting new launch I found out  about today from some of the biggest names in the TE industry.

Usually these programs get launched with a bunch of JV partners and a flood of emails in your inbox saying “Go! Go! Go!” but this launch was quite different.

There were no JV partners and no big hoopla. Hardly anybody knows about this program yet which means you are going to have the same opportunity to promote this system and make money from it just like anybody else.

So what is Click Track Profits?

Click Track Profit is a new training site that was designed to lead you from “clicking” to “profit” by simply following a series of easy to follow steps that are laid out for you inside the members area.

It’s super simple!

The CTP system is setup using a trickle down training program that will release new lessons to you over the course of your membership. That way you’re not overwhelmed with too much information at once and you can focus on doing the steps one at a time.

Here’s my link to join:

At the very least… go watch the video.

It’s hilarious!



The Traffic Button

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Monday!

Over the last year or so a few of my marketing buddies have started referring to me as “Mister Safelist”.  While I obviously love marketing with safelists there is another form of free advertising that has been bringing me better  results.

Can you guess what that is?

Today Mike Purvis, who is the owner of two if the largest of these types of programs is launching a brand new training site which I am very happy to be a part of.

You can check it out here:

The Traffic Button is a free report that is broken up into three distinct training modules.  The first module will introduce you to the source of this amazing  free traffic.  The other modules will show you how to focus this traffic and how to start profiting from it.

This is exactly the stuff I use every day but explained in a really easy to follow guide that anybody can understand.

And of course, it’s free!

I just finished watching the video in the third module (yes, there is video too)  and let me just say… it’s good!

Module one is available right now.

You will receive an email when module two becomes available but for now read and digest the first module and start putting this stuff into action today!

Autoresponder Profit System is LIVE!

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and Happy Monday!

Big, big, BIG news today…

I have a new ebook and website!

Yep, after nearly a year of working on it today I am finally releasing my new ebook called “Autoresponder Profit System“.

You can check out the website here:

Like all of my other ebooks this one is free and there is an affiliate program to go along with it so that you can make some extra cash by giving it away.  Of course there is also the option to rebrand the book with your own affiliate links which will allow you to make even more money when people sign-up for the programs recommended in the book.

What’s it about?

Autoresponder Profit System is my “list building” ebook but with my own little slant on the subject.  I actually created it for people who may already have an autoresponder but might not know how to use it to build a list.  More importantly, it will show people how to “profit” from their autoresponder either by using it to promote various affiliate programs or by bringing more members into their primary business that they are already promoting.

Autoresponder Profit System also makes a great giveaway for people who already have downline members in an autoresponder.  So giving them this book greatly improves the chances that they will actually start making some money with their autoresponder thus keeping them in your downline every month.

I just checked my site stats.  The site launched an hour ago and already there are close to 200 members!  Whee!

I suspect I am going to be a little busy for the rest of the day but I would love to read your comments about the book.  Please click on the link below to download your free copy of Autoresponder Profit System and let me know what you think!

Do People Buy From You?

Author: Jerry Iannucci


I just thought i’d do a quick post today to let you know about a new ebook that is being released today from my friend Beth Allen called “Power of Promoting You“.

You can download a free copy from here:

Personal branding is something that I am a very big fan of.

I think when most people start out in Internet marketing they prefer to do it under the guise of anonymity.  For years I used to market under the name “housedawg”.  I think did it out of a lack of confidence for what I was promoting.  I figured, hey if this doesn’t work at least nobody knows who I am.

Today you would have to look pretty hard to find a page I am promoting that doesn’t display my real name and a picture of my face on it.


Because people like to buy from people that they know and trust.

Sound familiar?

That’s why it is imperative that you start building your own personal brand and Beth’s new ebook  “Power of Promoting You” will show you exactly how to do it.  The best part is that she is giving it away for free!

Ponzi Scheme Frustrations

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello again!

Sorry I haven’t been updating my blog as often as I would like.  I’m still around, I just haven’t had much time to write.

But today I am ready to rant!

Yep, welcome back!

So, lately I have been spending way too much time on Sweeva.  Frankly, i’m addicted.  Whatever.  In case you live under a rock Sweeva is a social marketing site / traffic exchange.  So by using it you are not only getting your site seen by other marketers but you are also getting to know a lot of other marketers socially who are promoting their own sites.

I guess recently it has really started to bug me to see how many talented Internet marketers I know are out there promoting illegal pyramid and ponzi schemes.

I know.  These programs have been around even longer than I have.   It’s not like I haven’t seen hundreds of them come and go over the years.  But it’s interesting now to finally see the faces and talk to the people who are promoting these programs in a social environment such as Sweeva.

Ok, for the record i’m no angel.  I’ve been known to bend a few laws in my time.  If I am in a hurry I might go a few mph over the speed limit.  I probably play the stereo in my car louder than I should and I might even admit to having a few mp3s on my computer that I didn’t pay for.  Hey, I’m like a modern day Jesse James.

Let’s be realistic here.  The police probably aren’t going to break your door down and haul you off to jail for promoting an affiliate link that might not be entirely legal, but does that mean you should do it?

As long as nobody gets hurt, right?


People do get hurt.

Money doesn’t just magically appear.

No program pays out more than it takes in.

The only way for you to make money in these programs is for other people to lose money.  Your success can only come from someone else’s failure.

Am I the only one bothered by that?

No, i’m not a lawyer or a judge.  I can’t pass absolute legal judgment over every site out there.  But if you are not selling a product or service and the only thing you are offering people is a money making opportunity then chances are it’s either an illegal pyramid scheme or an illegal ponzi scheme.

What’s that?  You program offers a product or service?  I guess that makes it legit, right?

Of course it does!

In fact, Bernie Madoff would be a free man right now if he had only thought to provide his clients with some ebooks and a rotating banner ad on his blog.

You can dress it up anyway you like.  If people are spending money on these things with the goal of making more money back then slapping on a worthless product or ad credits isn’t going to make them any more legit.

It’s frustrating to me though because sometimes I just want to grab these people and tell them what they are doing is wrong… but I can’t.  Who am I to tell them what they should or should not promote?  Right?

Look, if you have the money and you want to gamble it on one of these programs I don’t really care.  Maybe you’ll get lucky and eventually make a profit.  Congratulations on your wise business investment.

My problem is with the program owners and the people who use these programs to prey on newbies who don’t know any better.  The people who only care about making money and don’t care where it’s coming from.  To me that is more than just breaking the law… it’s just wrong.


My First 3 Years of List Building

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I started building my list on June 30, 2007.

I know this because I just checked my Aweber account and searched for the date that my first lead was added.

I felt compelled to look this information up because I received an unexpected email from one of my subscribers tonight.  She was replying to one of the emails I had set to send from my autoresponder 3 years ago!

No, I am not crazy enough to try and write 3 years worth of emails.  I don’t even remember why I did it but for some reason I set the last message in my email series to be sent after 999 days.  The email simply said:

Just checking in to say hello.

How’s it going?

I never expected I would still be doing this 999 days later or that anybody would still be reading my emails after 3 years but sure enough I got a response back tonight:

01 My First 3 Years of List BuildingHi!
thank you for the message.

Have a Blessed new Week.
~ Becky

Thank you Becky!

Over the last few years I have started to gain some perspective on this whole make money from home thing.  I’ve noticed that there is always a handful programs that everybody is trying to promote claiming it’s the next big thing.  It usually lasts for about 3 or 4 months until the focus shifts to a new batch of programs.

For every hot new program you can name now I can name a dead one from a year ago that was just as popular.

I started building my list because I got involved with one of those dead programs which thankfully provided it’s members with lead capture pages to promote.  They had an in-house autoresponder but I chose to pay a little extra to use a 3rd party one.  That’s how I found Aweber.

The company I was promoting is long gone…

But after 3 years, I still have my list!

I’m not saying it’s wrong to promote the latest and greatest opportunity… just do it on the back end!

The only thing you should be promoting are things that build your brand and build your list.  Once people are on your list and have gotten to know you THEN you can introduce them to whatever you want.  If they aren’t interested… well, you’ve got at least 3 years to find something that they are interested in.

So thank you Becky for continuing to read my emails.  I’m going to keep building my list and I look forward to hearing how everyone else is doing for the next 999 days.


The Return of Send Button Profits

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Nobody is perfect.

About a year ago I wrote a review of a new site from Jeff Dedrick called “Send Button Profits”.  It’s funny because at the time I had planned on doing a video walkthrough of the site but decided making videos was too hard.  lol.

You can read my original review of Send Button Profits here:

At the end of the review I mentioned that the site would be closing soon but would probably open up again “in a few weeks or a few months”.

That was 10 months ago!

Needless to say… I never thought Jeff would keep his site closed for this long!

Well, Send Button Profits is back!

It appears that Jeff has put his Willy Wonka hat on and thrown the doors open once again to his magical list building factory… but who knows for how long this time!

But seriously, Send Button Profits is one really impressive website.  I use it all the time and every time I login I get blown away by how much cool stuff I have access to.

I considered making a new video walkthrough of the Send Button Profits website to show how much stuff had been added since last year but there is just way too much to see.

The video would end up longer than Gone With the Wind!

Ok, so here’s the deal…

If you didn’t join Send Button Profits last October I highly recommend getting in this time.  It’s not free but I have managed to snag a $20 discount code that you can use.

To claim the $20 discount use this link:

Jeff says the bonus offer will be ending soon and this time I believe him.

If you are serious about list building and making money online definitely check out everything that’s included with Send Button Profits.  It really is one of the most impressive Internet marketing packages I have ever seen and is worth every penny to have access to it.
