    I discovered this yesterday and now I'm seeing lots of talk about it. PM me and I'll send you the link. The key is to avoid all the upsells and get to the list building.

      I've already signed up to it. I've not started using it just yet, because I'm not on aweber, but i'll probably sort that out pretty soon. I just want to know what others think of it and how successful they've been.

    So far I only bought the upsell, haven't promoted it. Averaging about 5.75 new subscribers an hour.

    I don't know if it'll sustain that kind of traffic, but hey, I'll take 100-138 new subscribers per day if it does.

    I just signed up a few hours ago as well...

    With all the lists I'm signed up to it was kind of hard not to hear about it from anybody!

    I activated my autoresponder in the program and I'm promoting it through different means, we'll see how it goes.

    Read Dan McGonagles email on this......

    I'm rushing this email out to you because I see some
    emails hitting my inbox talking about anew Viral list
    building product or service.

    Yes, you can build your list and let others build a list
    under you but it's doesn't really make much business sense.

    What if someone under you is building a health-related
    niche list and you're building technology-related list?

    How does that benefit you?

    I've seen these services come and go over the years and frankly
    I think they're all sucker's bets that only really benefit the
    owners of the program and the "first movers"...

    It's far better to get something like Traffic Smashers, which
    can produce 400 unique visitors overnight, and Traffic smashers
    will make you money or even build you a REAL list if you target
    the right audience with your message.

    Traffic Smasher is Free and I'd gladly have you join something
    like this which costs nothing yet provides real benefits.

    I tired to upgrade but sadly every new launch for Russell did not include few non English speaking countries including Hong Kong on the billing address (but they do include in the shipping address). So I haven't really promoted yet. It reminds me sometimes a little careless does ruin a potential earning of a marketer and Russell Brunson.

    Remember there is a theory about

    Synergy where 1 + 1 > 2?
    If a trust relation can't be built then there can't be a co-operation or JV.
    Remember this please warriors!

    Not sure whether this new "toy" is good for the non-gurus. But one thing worth noting about their "forgot password" link... i noted that when you entered the wrong password, it will automatically generate the email and send it to your inbox... this is way cool, and it's ahead of the curve.

    good to note what's the market's doing... but for me, i don't promote this to my list, as why would you want to share your list with 6 other marketers, besides the list creator himself?

    it's always best to build your own list on your own domain.

    time to work on your own asset

    Yeah, I agree. I was on the verge of hitting the send button to promote this to my list, then I realized it would be a really bad idea.

    Why would you want to make it 6 times harder to get through to your prospects?

    I mean how many people are going to just use an email address that they will never check. You might be building a list of thousands, but if noone checks your emails its worthless.

    Getting subscribers and having success are two very different things.
    Couple of questions you should think about:

    * Do the people that subscribe want to be subscribed?
    * Why would someone be at this site to begin with? To build their own list?
    * Do they know what kind of information they are going to get?
    * Do they know how frequently you are going to email them?
    * Are they using a real email address?
    * Are they going to consider your email junk and hit the "this is spam" button?
    * Are they going to open or click on your emails?
    * What happens when things go wrong?

    "Quick" rarely equals "quality".

      I agree with you here Tom but this is just another options people should try.

      BTW, I'm an AWeber user and also affiliate. There is something into
      AWeber I really don't like it! But, I don't want to post it here and create a
      debate... so I'll send you a quick email through WF.

      I don't know if you'll see it, but at least I had to take this off my chest!

        I tried it and got good results a for a few days.

        It has slowed down now. I'm going to send
        it out to my lists once more.

        I think the guru buddies did very well. I'm
        not one of them.

      That's the problem with logic and marketing. Often they don't go hand-in-hand.

      I got 5 sales from 70 opt-ins from The Viral Secret, although traffic has almost completely come to a halt now.

      No one signs up to a list except for the same sort of benefit as in The Viral Secret. They want something for free. Rarely do they sign up for a list because they heard of you somewhere and want to be on your list.

      As long as you're not getting a bunch of names from a poor country and they're interested in the type of stuff you offer, it's how you market to them once they're on your list that matters.

      What do you put in your first email?

      If you build authority and offer something, then you can make money from people who have money who are interested in the subject.

      What do I do in my 1st email they get? Here's my blog, follow me on Twitter, here's an offer...

      In my case I knew they were all looking to build their lists, so what offer did I make in front of them on that email? Here's how to build a list.

      If you look at it a little more closely, you find that it's not much different than any ethical bribe to get people on your list. You just have to be a better marketer than the 5 to 6 lists they signed up on.

      For example, use single opt-in and you just beat half of your competitors they signed up to be on the lists of, because they're likely only going to confirm their optin to few or even none.

      It all comes down to how you market.

    I thought it was a cool concept so I was behind it. I like innovate experiments like this.

    I think the explosive growth has pretty much stopped though.

    12951 members or so. I don't expect it to grow like it did the 1st couple days.

    Isn't this just going to produce a list of people that are on your new list just so they can build a list of their own. Seems to have similar qualities of a safe list to me. Maybe I am missing something.

    Exactly. This is not list building. It's a chain letter/pyramid scheme where the payoff is getting a "subscriber". But keep in mind that no one is subscribing to your list because they have any interest in you or your offers. They are subscribing because they think it will build their own list. Just how well do you suppose such a list would convert?

    If this involved the exchange of money, it would be illegal. As it is, I think it is borderline, because of the upsells.

    As in any pyramid scheme, these principles apply: 1) The first movers can do very well in the short term, 2) Everyone else is trying to get in at the top, and 3) It will ultimately burn itself out and wind up being a waste of time and money for most people.

    Another way to look at it is it's a scheme for guru's to fatten their lists with you doing the work. If you are going to promote something, promote your own list, and get someone to subscribe because of the value you'll be providing them. That's the only reliable way to build your brand online. This other stuff is just smoke and mirrors. Don't let it distract you.

    I see Russel has not changed much since DOt Com Secrets. I did learn a lot from him though.
