Herculist + Review

My history with Herculist+

I have been using Herculist+ for about 2 months now as a free member and while it hasn’t been the best performing traffic program I am using for overall traffic, it is the best Mailing Safelist I have used with about 3% of my emails resulting in a site visit. I find that the Unique Visitor count is higher than most other programs.

What I Like

I like the fact that as a free member I could submit a mailer to a random 1000 of the 87,000+ members every day, even if I never opened an email from someone else and I can earn about 20,000 more emails a day using points I earned by reading and surfing emails (you can do both and get credited for it by the rules).

As well as the Safelist function you can also surf other members links on a 20 second timer like a regular traffic exchange.

What I Dislike

You only get 1 link for other people to surf whether you are a free member or a paid member (but using a rotator like the one from LeadsLeap is perfectly fine).

I also dislike that while you are navigating the website you get a user ad between every page turn, but it soon stops being annoying and if it is my ad people see then it is a good thing…

Why I Upgraded

I make a point to warn new people to wait until a program is making them money before they upgrade. I realize that if our downlines follow this rule we don’t always make enough money to upgrade ourselves. Despite that, I just broke this guideline myself and this is why I just spent $49 on a lifetime membership.

I just took a part-time paid job for a non-profit because they couldn’t find anyone who would work as a janitor. So my wife “volunteered” me. Working took away 3 days a week from my marketing. That left me with more money than time, so I had to do something!

I’ve been using Hurculist+ for a few months now as a free member. I like it, even with its few strange things. I find it less strange than most other things out there! As a free member I could send a mailer to 1000 random members a day. I could earn enough by reading emails to email another 10000 a day. Surfing pages and emails earned about 3000 more visitors a day.

This with my other programs got me a total of about 15,000 visits a day to split between my links.

The point is my marketing time got cut down a lot. Those 3 days a week I now have to work, average 12 hours a day! I looked at my options to keep my traffic rates the same or higher for the least amount of money and decided to spend $49 on a “Lifetime Gold” membership (on sale right now) at Herculist+.

Here are my reasons:

  • There is a different membership at Herculist+. My ads wouldn’t be as common over there as they are at places I use a lot (like TAB).
  • Huge membership base to mail to 88,000+ and I can mail them all everyday.
  • My surf timer dropped from 20 seconds to 5 seconds and my surf ratio dropped from 2:1 to 1:1. That gives me a 8x improvement and makes it so on a long day I can surf over 6000 sites!
  • My Email timer went from a 10 second timer to a 5 second timer. That gives me a improvement of 2x.
  • The credits members receive for reading my emails went from 5 credits to 35 credits. That change should increase the chances of my emails being opened to my pages from 3% to 8%. Giving me 6-8000 hits on my sites a day (just from Emails)
  • They pay within 24 hours on referral sales. Some other programs make me wait 60 days for a check or PayPal.
  • 50% commissions on referral sales. Which isn’t much on $49, but when the sale ends it will be 50% of $150.
  • It was a 1 time payment $49.
  • Extra space on blurbs (from having 100 words to 1000 words to use in a blurb). And other things like being able to personalize emails.
  • And More…
