One nice little trick I have seen is where the list now forces its members to view ads before sending out there own.

 

That is very annoying as an advertiser, I'm surprised you call it nice  :unsure:

My comment was based on the fact that, instead of being deleted out of hand, you actually get eyes on your ads and sites. Isn't that the whole purpose of promoting in the first place? Yes, it can be annoying, but I consider it a plus as you might not get those eyes otherwise.

Eyeballs see your ad anyway though...

 

....IF the list is still alive and isnt replicated to death (same script oversold 400 times for greed) to have to do that. Seriously I have abandoned almost all the safelist sites that do that because I (personally) dont have time to click 9 times first on numerous sites, just to send to the same small group of people anyway. (I talk of a particuliar camp)

 

I have one recently created safelist that does that and that is because of special circumstances, and its not to force ctr.

 

But I guess it is up to whoever has time to do that before they send out their ads who.

But eyeballs see your ad anyway on any safelist though, they have to click to gain their send later on.

I think there might be something that is overlooked. Users tend to gravitate towards the higher credit messages and ignore the lower credit ones. They do this in order to build credits faster. Herculist is a credit based safelist. It is not a fair deal for the free members. Just a thought.

That's why I upgrade there because whenever I do click I search those out too (the fat credit emails)

Herculist does not offer much to free members though.

I am a pro member at Herculist and I have mailed 3 times to promote my new site this month.  I have got 37 hits and 3 sign ups.

When I used to be a Gold member, I was allowed to mail in HTML as I love to mail in HTML.  But Pro membership does not have that feature.

Still won't complain with 3 sign ups. :)

I'm quite suprised people are so down on Herculist.

As a free member I used to regularly get signups from the 1,000 emails per day, so the £15 per year pro upgrade was a no-brainer.

Now I can virtually guarantee results from every mailing.

of course, it depends what you're advertising...

Wow! I thought it was just me. I've been with Herculist for a long time. Off and on as a Pro member. Even tried to read thousands of those emails to get the credits but nothing happened. And yes, I get all of those emails in my inbox and tend to delete them in bulk. So I guess that what everybody is doing.

 

No more money. and time to let it go.

How well Herculist works for you has a lot to do with what you're promoting there...

 

I just checked my referrals for Mailsy for example, and more than a third of them came from Herculist, so it is definitely working for me!

Maybe herculist just needs to update/rewrite their script

These larger safelists tend not to deliver a good open rate due to the hundreds of emails received daily when using lists such as Herculist. Many users are employing the use of automated email readers such as  click earner to gather credits which will cause the safelist to suck right into the ground.

The two problems with most safelists is they never filter out old, inactive members. So you keep sending your ads to people that will never open it, and they know it. The other problem is lack of cheat control like you mentioned, multiple ways to detect and stop cheating is necessary - otherwise what is the value of credits?

 True dat Darren, it's the holy truth and nothing but the holy truth. I believe some Safelists are carrying as much as 80% dead weight in their subscribers number and because the owners are so legacy minded they tend to brag about the size of their safelists which are actually dead non responsive in numbers.

 

The cleaner the safelist no matter the size the better the results but again once you clean the number will be smaller but the results definitely better as Email Service Providers will no longer have the need to be bouncing and trouncing your emails. A cleaner list more than likely will give you a better mailing score with the ESPs thus allow more emails to be delivered and therefore  a more productive and result oriented safelist.

In my opinion Herculist is not going to help you get sales or conversion bcoz it was not organized to get what you want but you can get exposure to your content

Having your own Roku TV channel gives you and your clients:

  • Income from day 1. In a click or two you setup the TV advertising. Get paid straight into your PayPal account.
  • Authority. Be the leader in your industry. This otherwise takes 5 year or more, but only weeks with the TV channel.
  • Traffic. New Roku TV channels typically receive up to 10,000 subscribers in the first month alone, simple because they’re there – without any promotion whatsoever.

Yes, I tried it paid and free.

 

I though it was just me!

 

Very disappointing and an inbox full of ads!

 

Plus you have to login to their website to stop the emails from coming in.

 

Another waste of time.

I signed up for Herculist because of a recommendation from a member here.  I have to tell you it is a nightmare.  The sheer NUMBER of emails that you receive for both of the email addresses that you provide is overwhelming. No body is reading your email.  That is the problem with the mailers and safelist like Herculist.  The advertiser receives thousands of emails every day. As a Gold member I opted to be on vacation but I still kept getting these emails.

 

Using common sense, I concluded that if I am not reading my emails, is anyone reading their emails.. the answer is NO!  Unfortunately, the only people making money from these types of programs is the owner..  I think I gave Herculist a college try and I am cancelling my subscription..  I think you might stand a better chance with the iblast.   But for now, I am taking their ad off my website because it is a waste of  a lot of my time and just a little money.

 

But the reason I came to the MC today was to ask if anyone had tried the  Ninja Traffic program for $19.95?  I joined a similar program from the Warriorplus folks and the website was full of viruses and non-stop pop up ads, popin etc.  This same guy offered 1,000 leads a day  and I never got them.  I guess I just answered my own question.  Plus the person offering this service has NO FACE.

I've Herculist a couple times, but couldn't stand how they flooded my inbox with millions of emails. I understand that safelists send out many emails, but Herculist went too far. I would like to know if anyone is getting any results with them, because I would consider upgrading.

Believe it or not, in terms of number of subscribers generated through my squeeze page, Herculist is actually my TOP performer over the past 7 days!
