List Zillion – Safelist Review

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I know, finally!

I’ve been promising this review of List Zillion for about a month now and I finally have some time to get it written.

I considered doing another video review but to be honest there isn’t a whole lot to see inside the List Zillion site.  List Zillion appears to be run on the same viral list building script that i’ve seen running on a few other sites that have recently launched.  The members area consists of a message displaying the site’s stats (currently 5415 members) and that’s about it.  Other than some banners and full-page ads I guess you could say List Zillion has a “clean” design.

Don’t worry.  What List Zillion lacks in personality it more than makes up for by being an extremely responsive mailer.  Isn’t that what counts?  But I’ll get back to that in a minute.

As simple as the List Zillion design is I still found myself getting lost several times when I first joined.  It seems the link to the “upgrade” page isn’t where you would expect it to be and once there I had an even harder time noticing the link to compare memberships levels.

List Zillion does offer some unique features for those who take the time to explore the site.  There’s the standard link cloaker and downline builder but there’s also something new called the “list builders optimizer”.  This appears to be a way to organize your mailings with other viral list builders.  I haven’t really taken the time to set this up yet but it seems like it could be useful.

Upgraded members can submit “top sponsor” ads which appear at the top of every email.  They also have access to a unique “referral mailer” which acts like an autoresponder by sending a welcome email to your new referrals as well as sending a recurring email to them every 6 days.

Here’s a peek at the List Zillion membership levels.

Membership Free Gold Platinum
Mail To (memberships) Free, Gold Free, Gold, Platinum Free, Gold, Platinum
Mail Frequency Every 7 Days Every 5 Days Every 3 Days
Mail To (members) 300 (up to 1000 w/credits) 2000 (up to 3000 w/credits) 3000 (up to 5000 w/credits)
Message Personalization Yes Yes Yes
Click Tracker Yes Yes Yes
Can Save Ads Up to 2 Up to 10 Up to 20
Credits for reading Messages 10 15 20
Credits for reading Solo Ads 20 40 50
Credits for your downline reading messages 5% 10% 20%
Signup Credits 1,000 4,000 6,000
Credits per Referral 150 250 300
Monthly Credits 0 4,000 6,000
Top Sponsor Ads 0 3 5
HTML Mailer No Yes Yes
Visual HTML Editor No Yes Yes
Commissions 15% 30% 50%
Monthly Cost $16.99 $26.99

So is List Zillion worth the platinum upgrade?

Here’s my personal advertising stats from last month with List Zillion:

Total Clicks: 1,226
Unique Clicks: 741
Splash Page Clicks: 47
Sign-ups: 15
Clicks-to-Action: 6.34%
Clicks-to-Sign-up: 2.02%
Cost per Sign-up: $1.80
Daily Emails Received: <10

Not bad.  This is comparable to most of the major viral list builders out there right now.

List Zillion is still a relatively new site.  With just over 5,000 members there is still a lot of room for growth.  Anyone looking for a solid viral list builder who cares about results should definitely give List Zillion a closer look.

As I mentioned a few days ago I want to start doing more reviews of individual safelists, viral list builders, and whatever other programs I have been using lately.

The first site I want to review is “A State of the Art Mailing System“.  State of the Art Mailer is a relatively new safelist created by Jay Pause and Brad Webb which launched a few months ago.

A State of the Art Mailer System appears to be using a unique mailer script.  I would say it’s more of a safelist than a viral list builder but there are number of unique features that makes State of the Art Mailer stand out from other sites.

One of the things you will notice is that when you join you are first asked to look at 5 websites belonging to other members before continuing.  I guess this is the “viral” aspect of the program because when you refer people your ad gets displayed in the 2nd position for your downline members to view and when they refer people your ad appears in the 3rd position.  Upgraded members can also have their ads randomly displayed in the other positions.  This is supposed to generate hands free traffic to your pages.  I’ve never been crazy about these kinds of systems but whatever.  I have referred 2 people and my pages have so far gotten 8 hits.

You only have to do this when you first join.  Otherwise you get presented with a login offer from Jay and Brad along with an advertiser’s full-page ad.  You can earn credits if you view the full-page ad for 20 seconds or you can skip it and go right into the site.

The members area first appears a little confusing with 20 different menu options being presented to you.   The most important items are right at the start though with “Mail Now” being the very first.

So what makes State of the Art Mailer special?

SOTAM uses a unique mailing method called the “Button Escalation System” which rewards active members with the ability to send their ads to more members.  It’s a little confusing but there’s a really good video on the site which explains it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDG3Ui8RMJ4

Basically when you start out as a free member you can email 500 members every 7 days.  However if you are active and read enough credit emails from other members you can get bumped up to higher level buttons which let you reach more members.

You can also upgrade your membership which gives you automatic access to the higher buttons as well as the ability to email every 3 days instead of 7.  I purchased the 5000 button upgrade when I joined and so far have had no trouble reaching the 7500 button which allows me to email almost the entire membership every 3 days.

It’s been about 2 months since I joined and so far the results have been excellent. They even post live mailing stats in the members area so that you can see exactly how well the system is working.

According to my own personal stats from last month I received 3,430 visitors to my splash pages which resulted in 13 new sign-ups to my program.  That’s a pretty decent conversion rate but the fact that a site this new is producing numbers like this is very impressive.

There’s a bunch of other unique features such as the “profit sharing pool” for active members (I earned a whopping $2.09 last month) as well as an “instant recruiting” system which apparently is still being worked on and hasn’t been added to the site yet.

Overall I am very impressed with the State of the Art Mailer.  The site isn’t real pretty but the results are what counts.  I think Jay and Brad have created something really unique here and I am looking forward to what they have planned for the future.

I had this brilliant idea last night while I was playing around with Jeff Dedrick’s “Send Button Profits” website.  You see, Jeff is going to stop accepting new sign-ups tomorrow night and I don’t think everybody understands what they are goin to be missing out on if they don’t join now.

So as I am going through the members area last night looking at all the tools I thought “Gee, if people could just SEE all this stuff there would be no question about signing up”.  So I decided I would get up this morning and record a video walking you through the members area showing you everything in the Send Button Profits system.

Unfortunately, I forgot that I “SUCK” at making videos.  Yeah, I just tried 3 times and each time I found myself blanking out with long periods of “Duhhhhh”.  Sorry!

Luckily, I am a fast typer so i’m just going to try and “describe” everything you are getting with the Send Button Profits system.

First, go here.

That’s the sales page.  I’m sure you’ve seen it by now.  The system is based around list building which I happen to love. Seriously, look at any successful Internet marketer and you will find that they all make their money by
promoting to their list.  That’s the big secret to making money online.  If you’re not building a list that’s probably why you have been having such a hard time.

Scroll down the sales page.  You will find that Jeff is giving away the system for free. Click the sign-up link and you will find that it asks for a credit card.  I’m sure that’s where most people leave.  Don’t worry!  Jeff is going to send you his training course in the mail.  You just need to cover the shipping. It’s $6.95 if you’re in the US and $12.95 outside the US.  Not much considering what you are getting.

In addition to the course you are also getting 30-day access to the Send Button Profits members area.  This is where it gets good…

(Ok, use you imagination.  This is where the video would go if I actually recorded it)

Here’s everything you get in the Send Button Profits system…

First there is the “List Building Webinar Video”. This is the 9 part training video that covers:

1. Overview
2. Basics for Building a List and Getting Leads.
3. Ways to Build Your List
4. Ways to Make Money From Your List
5. Offline Leads
6. Secrets to Using Affiliates and Joint Ventures
7. Create That All Important Relationship
8. Writing Emails That Get Opened and Make Sales
9. Ways to Get Traffic to Your Websites

Good stuff.  Worth joining right there.

But there’s more… under that there is the “Optin and Download Page Creator System”.  If you are a member of Instant Bonus Page (One of Jeff’s other programs) this is basically that.  It lets you create pages where people can download your products and Jeff hosts them on his site for you.

In addition to the download page creator you also get the “Optin Page Creator”.  You can get this as an upgrade at Jeff’s other site but it costs $77 there.  Here it’s part of the system.

I just want to say that the Optin Page Creator is awesome!  I’ve been looking around for a way people without web hosting and html skills can make their own optin pages.  This is the best thing out there.

Here.. I made this page in less than 2 minutes:

http://www.YourGift101.com/optin/smt

I didn’t write the bullets.  I just wanted to see what it would look like.  Pretty impressive and it’s super easy to do.

In addition to this you also get one that makes video optin pages.  Just record your video (if you’re not lame like me), upload it to youtube, and this will  embed it in the optin page for you.

And there’s more!

You also get 10 premade optin pages for programs like Ewen Chia’s “Super Affiliates” and Johnny Andrews’ “Money Siphon System”.  Just fill in your affiliate link and you are ready to promote.

Plus there are 20 more that come with a complete autoresponder email series.  Just add your code to the page, promote, and all the emails will be sent out with your affiliate links.

Like autoresponder emails?  You also get a series of prewritten emails for 5 more top clickbank product.  Just fill in your clickbank username and add them to your autresponder.

There’s also 5 mini profit packs.  These are 5 more products you can sell that come with opt-in page and autoresponder emails all setup and ready to go.

Want more?  This is probably my favorite…

You get 200 rebranable ebooks.  200!  Just enter your clickbank username and the books will all be rebranded with your info.  Give them away as freebies and if anybody buys the products in the books you make money.  The books are even rebranded with your Send Button Profits affiliate link so you can make even more money.  I love it!

There’s also the “Internet Marketing Guru University Membership Site”.  I don’t even know what that is. I’ve been so busy with the ebooks I haven’t had time to explore it yet.

Personal coaching from Jeff Dedrick and Liz Tomey.  Ok, that costs extra but if you need some extra help that’s pretty amazing that they are offering one-on-one help for anybody who wants it.

Want more?

Ok, how about 12 audio interviews on list building from people like Ewen Chia, Gary Ambrose, and James Grandstaff.  Nice.

More?

How about 150 more clickbank emails that you can add to your  autoresponder?  Set these things to send out every 3 days and you won’t have to worry about writing emails for over a year.  That’s truely an automated system.

You also get ebook templates.  I wish I had these when I first started writing ebooks since I waste so much time trying to format stuff.  These are really well made.

More?

You also get 50 videos showing you how to generate traffic to your optin pages.  This isn’t junk. This is a complete traffic training course.  I watched a few of them and they are really good.

Finally there’s even more templates for you to download.  There’s Twitter templates, OTO templates (I really like these), and even more squeeze page templates.

Phew!

You can see why I wanted to record a video instead of trying to type this all out.  It’s actually much more impressive when you can actually see all this stuff and spend some time playing with it.

So, Jeff is going to close the sign-up page tomorrow (Tuesday) at Midnight EST.  You’re not stupid, you know it’s going to reopen again at some point but I don’t know if it’s going to be in a few weeks or a few months.

Yes, it’s all free (except for the shipping) and yes you will be billed after 30 days if you want to keep your membership.  Considering everything you are getting with Send Button Profits I think it’s safe to say it’s worth the price.  All you need is an autoresponder and the Send Button Profits site and you are set!

PS – Even if you plan to cancel before the 30-day  trial is up make sure you watch the videos and  download as many of those 200 rebrandable ebooks
as you can.  Man, I still can’t believe he giving  away all those rebrandable ebooks for free!
