Hey gang! Seely Clark here with another how to video for you. This video is video number 9 in the Simple Success Series….This video shows you the SHORT version on how to use a mailer site called Herculist.
While this site may look a little outdated, confusing and intimidating to some people if you are used to “regular” newer viral mailers or safe lists- do not fear- it is simpler than it looks.
It does have a lot of features available but I don’t want you to get hung up on those details. I will show you the shortest version of how to get your ads out there.
Today especially we will be stepping out of the free zone into the affordable yet paid advertising zone.
In this case we will highlight the cost per year for being upgraded- either to the pro or gold status.
I also go over solo ads on herculist, what they are for , how they are priced, and how they help you. The solo ads anyone can purchase- even free members can buy and use and give your ads exposure to a great number of people who are looking for what you have to offer. That is a great way to cost control your ad budget, even if it is a shoestring budget.
I also cover a feature of this site called “hercublurbs”- weird name I know but they are handy to use and are listed at the front and get noticed very well for both free and paid members who choose to use them. You “pay” for them in points.
So say for example you are a free member who has sent their mail for that day, but has some spare credits laying around- one of the ways you can use those credits to your advantage is to submit a blurb- which in effect is a text ad with a link below it and this shows in a really well viewed are of Herculist.
Stay tuned for more videos covering the finer and more detailed points of Herculist, Referral Frenzy, Leased Ad Space, and other larger feature rich sites.
Some of you may be shaking your heads at me right now- NO I don’t think you are stupid or anything. But I do remember when I was new -or even when i gained more experience but had to adjust to using a new big feature rich site it does take some time to get used to and can cause a brain cramp just because of the fact that it is new and you haven’t used it before. Fir that reason I.prefer to give you the shortest version I can first so that you can hopefully avoid information overload and get out there and take action TODAY instead of getting overwhelmed.
Because this is about getting YOUR ADS seen TODAY rather than worrying too much about ALL the bells and whistles on these big sites at first.
Here are the inks for the sites that were mentioned/ covered in the video today:
