I approach mailers like solo ads. If an upgrade cost $10 I expect to get 7-8 sign ups. 10 sign ups or more for $10 is a steal. 2 signups for $10 or $5 per lead is a no-no. Results vary a lot so sometimes I use an average like X amount of signups for x mailer upgrade budget and re-balance by downgrading the ones that are not performing as expected and upgrading the ones that are giving me good results as a free member. OTOs also affect results. At regular price you may find yourself paying $3 per lead when you could have been paying $1 per lead if you had taken the OTO. Just my 2 cents.. -Luis

Sorry, I have to reply with my actual experience, here... re: Herculist. You say 'I reap benefits close to a paid member' ??? I am a Pro member, and I get to BLAST to 60,000+ members every single day. My clicks are credited at the Pro level, and those clicking on my links in my ads know they are receiving more credit for clicking on the link of a Pro member. Your own 'weekly blast', as a free member, only goes to a token 700 members! Besides that, I brought in two pro members which COVERED my cost for my Pro membership making it FREE. Reaping close to paid members benefits?? Look again!

Thanks for the hint about new safelists, Maria. I will look out for them. I have been a pro member of Herculist for a while but have been disappointed by the response. I am thinking of running some give-aways as an incentive for people to subscribe to my website newsletter and was wondering if this sort of thing may go down better than advertising affiliate programs on safelists?

Interesting thread, I joined Herculist a couple of years ago and have not really used it the way I should be, I suppose this is the main issue with a lot of mailers and members. I have forgotten about a lot of the mailers I signed up to. I may go back and give this one a try.

I have used Herculist in the past and I just don't think the traffic is really quality traffic. Personal opinion.

The traffic from Herculist is not at all good.

It is weaker than from a list of 2,000 members. I am a gold member too!

I can't remember the last time I have seen an ad for Herculist.

 

Makes you wonder how many of those 60,000 members joined in the last 10 years :huh:

I see Herculist quite often lately... maybe it's only showing up on certain sites?

I get very little response with Herculist.

 

With the Herculist GOLD membership they have the option to go on vacation but are still able to send to the entire database.

 

I imagine that reduces clicks and viewing emails big time,

RE: (Put vacation mode to "On" if you would like to send mail, but not receive it.)

 

I see no problem with letting members turn mails off (not receive) if they choose, otherwise you are sending to members who never open or read the mail anyway, they just let it go to their mailbox and then delete all without opening them. In the case of spending credits, that would be a total waste of credits to send to people who will not read the message anyway.

 

The problem with herculist is they have never cleaned up their list, so you are sending to tens of thousands of users who have probably not opened any mail for years, this makes it look good before you mail to it, and then you realize it once you receive few clicks from that amount of members. The other problem is their lack of cheat protection.. I suspect their site is abused heavily by cheaters, and obviously bots have no intention of joining what you are promoting and only hurt your results further. With these combined factors, the value of actually clicking for mails there is very low.. so they likely have trouble keeping users active.

Herculist has better traffic then all other safelist and the biggest membership. Check the stats!

If you have an upgraded membership and you are not posting daily, how can you expect results.

You have to be consistent. I know I like herculist.

I paid for John's x5 package last about a year ago.  I think I was getting somewhere in the neighborhood of 40-50 non incentive clicks per day. Not too bad I would say. I think the package I bought was around $300 and gave me three months of advertising.

I upgraded for a little while years ago didn't get much from that.  I quickly downgraded but thats just me.  I would rather have a system going

on first before I upgrade in something. So I know its going to pay off.  If you are upgraded you want to start utilizing the affiliate program right

away.

 

william browsers post about hooklist sounds good I'd go there first and then upgrade for sure.

Im currently a free member at hercules list, but have been tempted to become premium, but never really got around to it. Sending a mail to 1000 a day isn't that bad, just have to change you subject lines so it's not the same.
