Taking the Plunge with Traffic Wave

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I’ve said many times before that a professional autoresponder is one of the most powerful weapons in any successful Internet marketer’s arsenal. Over the past few years Aweber has become accepted as the king of autoresponders based on their features and more importantly their excellent delivery rate. Until now Aweber was the only autoresponder I would personally recommend but it looks like now I will be making the switch to Traffic Wave.

I actually joined Traffic Wave once about 6 years ago. At the time I think it was an FFA site with an autoresponder feature and some kind of income opportunity that I didn’t really understand. I joined because I thought I could make money from it and of course I didn’t so I quit.

Over the years I have seen various programs pushing Traffic Wave as a way to make money.  Because of this I always assumed that’s what it was… an income opportunity with an autoresponder tacked on to make it appear legit. I even expressed this opinion at NMF a few months ago and was surprised when the owner of Traffic Wave, Brian Rooney, showed up to dispel this myth and prove that Traffic Wave is a real autoresponder with delivery rates that could compete with the best autoresponders out there.

I kinda forgot about it until a few weeks ago when Jerry Reeder and I got into a discussion about Aweber’s new form builder and the possibility of switching to Traffic Wave to offer a simpler solution for our readers. When Jon Olson decided to make the switch to Traffic Wave live on TrafficExchangeLive last week we both took the plunge with him.

I’ve spent the last few days playing with Traffic Wave and I am happy to say that it has improved from where it was 6 years ago.  Improved a lot!  Traffic Wave is the real deal.  From what I can see Traffic Wave offers all the features as Aweber along with a very accessible owner who understands the needs of Internet marketers like myself.

The price is a big factor too.  When I joined Aweber I must have locked in a monthly subscription price which is roughly the same as Traffic Wave.  At some point Aweber changed their pricing based on the size of your list.  I guess as a long-time member I was exempt from the price change because based on the size of my list I should be paying an extra $50/month at Aweber.  Traffic Wave on the other hand has a flat monthly fee no matter how big your list gets.

What makes my decision to switch to Traffic Wave really interesting is that Traffic Wave is also an mlm complete with a forced matrix and fast track bonuses.  A few years ago I stated that I was done promoting these kinds of programs because instead of trying to sell good products you always end up pushing the opportunity.  When people fail to make money with the opportunity they quit and the whole thing falls apart.

Traffic Wave on the other hand is a real competitive autoresponder service that I am happy to use and recommend with or without the income opportunity.  The fact that I can make a lot more money with it is just an added bonus.

I don’t personally have any problems with Aweber.  I still think it’s a great autoresponder.  But when it comes time to recommend an autoresponder based on price and features I will have to go with Traffic Wave now.

I haven’t started promoting Traffic Wave yet.  I’ll probably start by updating the links in some of my ebooks and adding it my downline builders.  Once I get a few referrals then i’ll probably start pushing it a little harder.

If you have been on the fence about getting an autoresponder now would be a good time to join Traffic Wave.  I can’t promise that you will make thousands of dollars a month just from being in my downline but if you choose to use Traffic Wave to build your list you can feel confident that you are getting a professional autoresponder service that will become the backbone of your business for years to come.

    Jerry,
    This looks excellent. I gather there is no compromising features that aweber has?

    I haven’t played around with the stats/tracking in Traffic Wave too much yet but it looks like all the features I use in Aweber are present along with some of the advanced stuff I never use.

    Hi Jerry

    I’m a long term user of aweber, and I relly like the graphics that you can now add in the form generator, and then just paste the simple javascript onto my squeezepages.

    I also really like the way that you add in a link to the aweber privacy policy so that people know you can unsubscribe easily.

    Aweber will also pay you commissions which although not as generous as trafficwave does mean that you can get the holy grail of passive income.

    Couple of things for you to consider..

    #1 I’m not sure how well programming support is for traffic wave within the membership scripts, eg next time you create a LFM site will you need to hire a programmer to do the integration?

    #2 Are you able to export your exisitng list and upload into traffic wave?

    Like you I’m locked into the old aweber payment plan, so I’ll be sticking with them for a while yet.

    Andrew

    Way to go, Jerry.
    Im in the process of switching as we speak.
    Aside from prices and features, I don’t find Aweber to be as affiliate friendly as they should be for a company their size either.
    Traffic wave is also becoming more and more involved in the traffic exchange community too, which for me, is a huge plus since Aweber disregards TE’s.

    I was wondering about LFM too. LFM has the option to use “Aweber” or “Other” as your autoresponder. I assume it will work if I enter my Traffic Wave autoresponder email address but I have been reluctant to actually try it.

    As for importing your old list Brian Rooney posted something on NMF about them offering a free service to import your leads from another autoresponder. You just need to setup your campaign and open a support ticket. I assume the people on your list will still have to opt-in again though which does kinda suck.

    I have belonged a group which sells Traffic Wave for nearly a year now I have only sold one and because it is a business the auto responder is fully used to sell traffic wave. I intend to leave the group and perhaps I should try the auto responder for myself I have been paying for it for long enough for nothing.

    I had thought of looking at the other popular one Get Response as it too is used by many internet marketers. I am familiar with it from being on Sunny Suggs list.

    It is now obvious I should look at what I have been paying for all along.

    I missed something having re-read some of the comments the programming support is excellent from Traffic Wave.
