TrafficWave autoresponders, anyone use them?

9 replies
I've recently discovered the TrafficWave autoresponder service run by Brian Rooney. I've taken their free trial and the whole system looks pretty good. Not quite as sophisticated as Aweber in terms of features, but pretty adequate for most marekters.

And the big plus is the price, just $17.95 a month, however big your list gets.

The question, of course, is how good is their deliverablility. I'm really looking at this in terms of a service I can offer to my clients, as I build websites and have clients using Aweber, 1shoppingcart and other autoresponder services. The problem with Aweber is that some clients complain about the price. 1shoppingcart has terrible delivery rates in my experience.

So gettting back to TrafficWave, is it too good to be true at $17.75 a month? If anyone is using it I'd be interested in feedback.

    The TrafficWave autoresponder service seems to be quite satisfactory as far as that price label goes. Some of my friends have used their service and they too said they have an OK service level but what more can one ask with all that price set up for the package.

      How well would it work with a list of 20K? 40K?

        Hi, Joel.

        it works quite well. We have some company owners pulling in their lists of 20,000+ and importing them in to the system.

        They are experiencing no problems whatsoever.

      Hi, there.

      I'm not sure which account was yours and there may have been some confusion.

      If I'm understanding what you're looking for, you could use an AdTracker to track the number of clicks through to your capture page from any given ad.

      This would tell you how many actually went to the capture page from the ad itself.

      Then in the Subscription Landing URL, use a separate AdTracker.

      Then by grouping these two AdTrackers, it would be fairly simple to compare the stats:

      25 clicks on AdTracker 1 (going to your capture page)
      10 hits on AdTracker 2 (going to your landing page)

      would show you that out of 25 visits from that particular ad site, 10 of those visitors subscribed.

      I'm not sure if that is what you're looking for but that would be one way to go about it.

      I group quite a few of mine that way.

      As an example, I have a capture page that I advertise on one of the safe lists.

      I have an AdTracker (we'll call it AdTracker1) that tracks the click-through's to my capture page.

      When they submit their info, I have an AdTracker (we'll call it AdTracker2) that tracks the redirects to my landing page.

      I grouped these 2 AdTrackers together so now I know:

      1) How many clicks I got from that particular safelist.
      2) How many of those clicks actually subscribed to my list.

      I can promote the exact same offer and track those results by creating a separate capture page and 2 AdTrackers like I did with the previous campaign.

      Hope that helps.

      However, how much easier would it have been if the facility was incorporated into your system?

      I also trialed MarketingMakeoverGenerator and that is exactly what they had. Log on and you could immediately see how many capture page views you had had. You could then check how many sign ups. Easy. (Unfortunately, they had no method of moving buyers onto a separate autoresponder list. Another fault that I would have thought easily corrected.) LG
      The AdTracker is a part of your TrafficWave.net account and is included at no additional charge.

      In the back office, the "AdTracker" tab is just to the right of the "AutoResponder" tab.

      And you can move buyers in to a separate list from your prospect list in the TrafficWave.net AutoResponder system, as well.

    Hi, Steve. Not sure about that whole "biscuit biting" thing but due to the fact that we pay commissions through more than one level, Paypal doesn't care to work with us at TrafficWave.net.

    Not sure how some of the other multi-level plans are getting by with it. Maybe a matter of time? I'd love to see Paypal grow up a bit and recognize the distinction between legitimate businesses using a multi-level plan and the "other" stuff out there.

    We are able to accept the Paypal debit/credit card, Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express. We also accept Alertpay.
