Today is Content Tuesday at ListViral which means there is lots of cool new content to help you build your list.

You can normally expect to find four new packages on a Content Tuesday but this week there are five.

The extra package comes courtesy of William Miller…and look out for a separate blog post about that very soon.

So ensure that you log in to ListViral, or sign up and log in if you are not already a member, and discover the easiest list building method out there.

These packages come with everything you need to build really responsive lists…the downloadable free report, the squeeze page and the RocketResponder email series to get you started.

ListBuilding has always made sense but, until now, it has never been so easy to do.


ListViral is working like a charm and people, for the first time ever, are building their lists while they sleep.

A common response we are getting is:

“I have just joined ListViral and I have subscribers on my list but I didn’t do anything at all yet.”

Another is:

“I have joined ListViral, selected the packages I want to promote and am wondering what steps I am missing.”

The fact is that we have worked hard, super hard actually, to create a program which would allow you to build your own list on total autopilot.

ListViral screenshotYou can go ahead and send traffic to your squeeze pages if you want (in fact we recommend that you do)…but you don’t have to.

You can add extra emails to your email series or personalize the email series we have created for you (and we recommend that you do)…but you don’t have to.

The bottom line is that we have been able to integrate ListViral into RocketResponder in such a way that the amount of setting up on your end is…zero.

In fact if you take our upgrades and auto traffic packages you could build a sizable list without ever having to do another thing.

Now, obviously, you would want to interact with your list as that is the whole point in building a list in the first place. After all you don’t invite people around to a party at your house and then resolutely spend the entire time ignoring them.

So the main purpose of this post is to tell you that there is really not a lot you have to do when you sign up to ListViral…it just quietly goes to work on your behalf.

You can log in every day (or more often if you wish) to check your dashboard and see how your numbers are going up and be sure to check out Plus 1 Success Daily with Jon Olson where you can get all your ListViral questions answered and be the first to find out about the latest developments.

ListViral is not broken, it is just super, super easy to use. We built it that way on purpose.

Have a great weekend.


So the waiting is finally over and ListViral is back, bigger and better than ever.

First things first, it is not a mailer. We already have an awesome mailer which is ListNerds so launching a second one just for the sake of it did not make sense.

If you know us already then you will know that we are committed to the Plus 1 mentality…it is in everything we do and it should be in everything you do too.

So with Plus 1 very much at the forefront of our minds, we wanted to know what we could do to ListNerds to take it to the next level so that you could take your online business to the next level.

We wanted something that was:

  • easy to use
  • served a genuine purpose
  • would help our customers grow their businesses
  • was highly cost effective and
  • put list building on autopilot.

List building is the one thing that will grow your business, take it to new levels and set you apart from everyone else who does not have a list.

Until now there has been something of a mystery of how exactly to do it. ListViral removes the mystery, adds a TimTech twist and makes list building easier than ever before.

It seamlessly integrates with RocketResponder to make list building as easy and affordable as it is possible to get.

And it totally removes the main barriers to list building which prevents so many people from getting started.

It has hard to get started in list building if you don’t have some product, such as a quality e-book, to encourage sign ups.

Even if you have an book, you will still need a professional squeeze page and an email follow up series for your subscribers.

In fact you will be able to build your list far better if you have multiple e-books, squeeze pages and email messages and it can take many months of hard work just to get these all up and running.

ListViral members don’t have those problems because we have already taken care of all the difficult, time-intensive tasks for you.

So it is live now…go ahead and check it out.

Just a quick reminder that we added Landing Page Monkey to CTP earlier this week, so this is a good opportunity to check it out if you have not done so already.

It means that you have some new training steps to complete…but don’t worry as they are very simple and to the point.

You can find the new steps under ‘Training Steps’ and ‘Build Your First List’ – note that even if you had previously finished those parts of the training there are now two new items for you to do.

In the new Step 7 on the initial training segment, Jon explains that Landing Page Monkey is a squeeze page generator which will really help you build your lists.

There is a one-off $37 fee for Landing Page Monkey but once you start making lead capture pages to build your lists then this could be one of the smartest investments you ever made online.

In the new video on the ‘Build Your First List’ section, Janelle explains how to link up Landing Page Monkey to your RocketResponder account so you can get up and running with getting new sign ups to your lists without delay.

There is nothing difficult or complicated here and in fact Janelle’s walk through literally takes just a couple of minutes.

Building your list is so critical to your future online that this is probably the best two minutes you will spend working online today.


Jon was a little bit worried as he hit the “publish” button for his recent Hit Exchange News blog post, but he decided to go ahead with it anyway.

Maybe worried is not quite the right word but let’s say he was certainly more than a little apprehensive.

In face the very title of his post gave away his inner turmoil… This Post Might Make Me Even More Hated But…

In it Jon was making the point that list building was a better way of getting results than doing ‘hard work’ such as clicking on links in emails.

I think he feared that people would accuse him of being unkind for making the comparisons he did on his post.

You know the sort of thing:

“Jon you are such a mean bully. Stop being so mean to people, it’s not fair.”

But do you know what…it didn’t happen.

The post attracted many comments but no hate at all.

In fact the general theme was quite the opposite of what Jon might have feared.

It is certainly worth checking out the blog post if you have not already done so…don’t forget to read the comments too as they are really worthwhile and make valuable points.

If you have been to TELive recently then you might have heard Jon talk about one or more the following four subjects:

– listbuilding

– building a list

– building a list of subscribers

– adding subscribers to your list.

Actually they are all the same thing but you will have worked that out already.

Yesterday Jon had a bit of a mini rant about the lack of listbuilding going on in the industry right now.

Just look at any traffic exchange and you will see splash page after splash page but not so many lead capture pages.

People have got out of the habit of building lists and if you are in that category then it will hit your bottom line.

When you show a splash page then you have one shot of making a sale.

The person looking at your page needs to do the following things:

– notice your offer

– decide they want to take advantage of your offer

– be prepared to buy from you on the spot

So you have to catch the person at exactly the right time if you are going to get a conversion from your offer.

Now let’s look at a lead capture page and here is what needs to happen for you to get a result.

The person looking at your page needs to:

– notice your offer

– be sufficiently interested to give you their name and email address

Here are two massive, and I mean massive, advantages of this approach.

Firstly you don’t have to catch people when they are at the point of making a buying decision.

Secondly by getting people to sign up to your mailing list you now have the opportunity to

(i) build up a lasting relationship with your subscribers

(ii) market to these subscribers on a regular basis so that you can potentially make multiple sales from individuals over an extended period of time.

I am sure Jon will return and expand on this topic over the weeks and months ahead but, for now, the key message is that you really need to be building your lists and a cost-effective, easy-to-use and traffic exchange friendly system like Rocket Responder is an obvious choice of tool to do so.
