People are constantly asking me where I get my traffic. I have two main sources. Paid traffic, which is easy and effective, but of course, limited, as it’s expensive.
And viral mailers, formerly known as safelists, or credit mailers. I send out the credit mailers only. No text ads or banners. When I have access to a solo ad, I use that.
Here are some of my stats for September. They are in no particular order. The offer was The 30 Minute Workday (Click Here to see the capture page), and conversions are counted as people who typed in their email and joined my list.
|Mailer||Traffic (clicks)||Subscriptions||Conversion Rate|
|Viral Mailer For You||505||2||0.39%|
|Infinity Mailer Boost||957||1||0.10%|
|Free Safelist Mailer||61||1||1.64%|
|State of the Art Mailer||5871||23||0.39%|
|Infinity Traffic Boost||994||1||0.10%|
Using the 30 Minute Workweek, for the month of September, my list generated $1.81 per member on my list. I’m thinking of removing members who don’t open so that number increases, but I may wait until my list is double what it is now.
One more juicy piece of information: Most of these mailings are automated using Traffic Zipper. I can take several days off, and the list just keeps growing!
