That’s not all though. We will take your Video and your ViralURL affiliate link and let your staff share it for you on all the main video and bookmarking sites for you! That means you will have a chance to get more signups and earn more money! Yes, we do all the work, you just provide the video. So here is what to do:

* Here is an example script for your video… “Hi, my name is NAME, I am from LOCATION and I joined ViralURL in MONTH, YEAR as a MEMBERSHIP LEVEL member. What I like best about ViralURL is REASON. The results I achieved with ViralURL so far are RESULTS. I did this by METHOD USED.”

* You can use video footage of yourself, screencam video footage or screenshots… you decide how to make it the most interesting for the viewer.

We have some more great news! ViralHosts is growing fast. We are soon reaching 6,000 active members! How good is that? Congratulations on being part of this success! If you haven’t joined yet, make sure you do so at ViralHosts.com. We want to reach another milestone before we fully launch the site, but it’s just a matter of time thanks to your support.

Once again, we are sorry for the downtime the site experienced a few days ago. Our domain name got suspended but our team managed to switch it from GoDaddy to NameCheap in a record time. We apologize for all inconvenience caused.

Have you set up a site already? We would love to hear from you. Your feedback is more than welcome! Feel free to leave a comment. How about the system mailer? You know that you can email from 3,000 to 6,000 random members every 3 days! We only got good feedback so far. It is important for us to ensure that the list you send your emails to is responsive.

Referral contest

1. Brian Dew
2. Frank Salinas
3. Todd Gross & Mark Lareau
4. James Grandstaff
5. Kenneth Kraakstad

Great job guys! Check out the full ladder!

You can make it to the top, no doubt about that. The more members you refer, the more chances you have to make it to the top (it is as simple as that), and what you win with this contest is above the commissions earned with your referrals! Keep in mind that anyone can get a prize, you don’t need to be a big shot!

By referring other members, you earn commissions, AND the referred members go into your downline, AND the members they refer too, down to 5 to 7 levels deep! We have a range of tools that you can use to promote ViralHosts. Simply log into your account and click Promotion Section.

Training video and eBook

If you haven’t set up your site yet, check out our first training video, to set up your domain and FTP account. There are more to come.

We will also provide you with a free ebook to help you get started with ViralHosts. You will be able to rebrand it and add your affiliate link to it, offering you another effective means to promote ViralHosts. You can be sure that we’re doing our best to increase your conversion rate!

And don’t forget about the CPM earnings that you make with your site. ViralHosts pays you from 5 to 20 cents per thousand page views on your site and from 5 to 20 cents per 1,000 from all your referrals, depending on your membership level.

As you can see, there are many different ways to earn cash with ViralHosts. We hope you take full advantage of all the features the system offers! Even if you already have a site and don’t need hosting, ViralHosts remains a must-have. Why don’t you set up a site for additional inbound links? You know how important they are to search engines!

7 Reasons To Cloak Your Link With ViralURL

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Frank and I are sitting in South France together working on something NEW and COOL! πŸ˜› We will be sending out a mail in a few days with pictures and also an update on how we are doing…Remember, our contest is still running, and you can win!

In the mean time, thought we would share with you 7 biggest benefits why you should cloak your links with ViralURL…

Building a list is considered to be required to make money online, as you build your contacts, you build their trust and then you market them relevant and helpful products that will solve a need or desire they might have.

With Viralurl you don’t only build a list on Autopilot but you can also profit and build an ongoing income at the same time. In this post I will have a look at the 7 main reasons why you should cloak EVERY link you share with ViralURL:

1) It’s Super Easy! – Once you have a ViralURL account, cloaking links becomes a ‘2 click’ walk in the park with the use of our very cool ViralPlugin for FireFox.

2) You can make the links short, which makes them easy to share and nicer to click on.

3) You can track the ‘click stats’ on your links and also the referrer stats, so you can see what source your clicks come from

4) You can protect your affiliate links if you are promoting products and in the process increase your sales by up to 300%!

5) Build a list on Auto-Pilot that you can mail down 5 levels (7 if you are a ViralURL gold member) each week.

6) Earn up to $1 for every member that joins ViralURL from your link. We run a promotion that for 5 days a month we pay up to $1 per referral you send that joins ViralURL, even if they don’t pay us a cent! So basically we are paying you to build your list!

7) Open up a new revenue stream! ViralURL converts at around 6% from free to upgraded members, and you can earn up to 60% in referral commissions. This means if you are a Gold member, and earn $98 per year on the One Time Offer upgrades, maths suggests you will earn over $500 for every 100 total referrals you make. That is over $5 per member, even if they don’t upgrade. (not including the $1 promotional offers we run)

Interesting to note is that we offer yearly or monthly memberships, meaning as a referrer you will get paid over and over from the same referral for the life of the site, or until they cancel their upgraded membership! This allows you to build a solid, ongoing income from referrals you send to ViralURL

Bonus Reason 8) We are currently, and often, hold contests where we award cash and prizes to members promoting and using ViralURL. Currently we are running a contest for the top promoters, which at time of writing is still anyone’s game, AND also ViralURL’s top users. So cloaking all your links with ViralURL can even win you prizes and cash! Contest is on Now, be sure to Login and click on ‘Earnings Section’ then ‘referral Contest’ for more info!

Remember, as you cloak links and get them out there into ‘internet cyberspace’ they can bring you referrals for years to come! So for the SAME amount of effort as highlighting a link and clicking ‘right click’, then ‘copy’ and then ‘paste’ you can just as easily use ViralPlugin along with ViralURL to unlock amazing leverage and possibilities!

With great power comes great responsibility so please… No Spamming, play by the rules, but get out there and make some money with the power of ViralURL!

$3,447 Contest Update

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

The contest is under way and the race is WIDE open for you to step in and claim some awesome prizes. As you know there are two (2) contests running and there is no reason you can’t win both. First lets see whats happening in the link cloaking contest:

Carl "The Poet" Watts is leading the charge with 99 qualifying cloaked links and close on his tail is Darwin "earnow" with 95! Third place is held by Andy "rattenvanger" Vane who has just over 50 cloaks…

Guess what, even if you haven’t got 1 cloak yet, you can easily win a prize in this competition… simply:

1) Download the ViralPlugin – over 1,000 people have downloaded it within days and use it, but that still means 49,000 don’t, if you don’t… why not? It is SUPER fast and ensures you monetize, protect and benefit from every link you share!

2) Cloak every link you share with ViralPlugin (2 clicks is all it takes).

3) Share them with the world… Use your Facebook and MySpace feeds, use bookmarking sites, share the links with your Twitter followers or on your blog and forum posts. There is no limit to where you can use these links (As long as you are not spamming, we of course have a strict no spam policy).

Follow those three steps, not only will you notice your credits growing (Yeah, free advertising!), your list growing, and a new revenue stream open up… but you will also stand a good chance to win this cool contest!

The other contest we have running is a referral contest. Right now Jeff "Dead-Eye" Dedrick has 33 personals to his name and leads the pack in what is a very wide open race. Dan "only 3cm" Weaver is in 2nd place with 24 and Robert Puddy is currently in 3rd with 19.

As with the first contest, this one is anyone’s for the taking. Why not visit the promo tools section and follow the steps. In no time you will see your name up on the list! To see the current Top 20 in both contests, please login to your account , then click on the ‘Earnings Section’ button and then on the ‘Referral Contest’ link.

Brand New: FireFox Plugin & $3,447 Contest!

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Awesome FireFox Plugin:

Wow, we are very excited. We have just finished creating (and are already massively using it ourselves) a FireFox plugin for ViralURL… it’s called:Β  ViralPlugin

So step #1 is to install it! If you don’t use FireFox yet, you really should. It is a lot safer and faster then other browsers and you can get it free, here .

The plugin makes it super duper fast and easy to cloak links. To thank our almost 50,000 active members for your support and allowing us to make ViralURL what it is today, we wanted to also throw another awesome contest…

New Contest:

This time the contest will not only be for top referrers, but we will also make it for active plugin users (or people who cloak a lot of links even without using the plugin. ViralPlugin just makes it so much faster and easier).

So here are the contest rules. There are two contests running at the same time. Both will come to an end when the top referrer refers 500 new ViralURL members from the time the contest starts. The first contest is a referral contest and places will be determined by the number of referrals you make. Here are the prizes…

Place: Referrals Needed: What You Will Win:
#1
500+
$500 Cash + Solo Ad Mailing Credit (Total Value: $697.97)!
#2
450+
$250 Cash + 10k Mailing Credit (Total Value: $302.97)!
#3
400+
$150 Cash + 10k Mailing Credit (Total Value: $202.97)!
#4
350+
$100 Cash + 10k Mailing Credit (Total Value: $152.97)!
#5
300+
10k Mailing Credit + 500 Guaranteed Visitors (Total Value: $117.97)!
#6
250+
500 Guaranteed Visitors + 5,000 Viralbar Credits + 5,000 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $93.00)!
#7
200+
250 Guaranteed Visitors + 5,000 Viralbar Credits + 5,000 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $62.00)!
#8
150+
10,000 Viralbar Credits + 10,000 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $52.00)!
#9
100+
5,000 Viralbar Credits + 5,000 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $28.00)!
#10
50+
2,500 Viralbar Credits + 2,500 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $14.00)!

The second contest is a link cloaking contest. It works like this… the person with the most links with at least 10 unique visits in a day will win. This is on any given day over the period of the contest. We expect the contest to last about 30-45 days. The best approach to winning this one, is to cloak as many links as you can (never share a link if its not cloaked) with the cloaker (so easy with the ViralPlugin ) and then use it in places like Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Forums, Blog Posts, Emails etc. Wherever you normally share links, simply use ViralURL cloaked links instead of normal ones.

The 10 visits needed on that day is to ensure that you are not just mass spamming links or mass creating links and not using them. Only cloak links that you plan on sharing and using. This will be a fun contest, and remember, each day you have a chance to better what you did on another day.

This contest ends when the first one does (when the first person gets to 500 new referrals). There are prizes for the top 10 finishers so it should be easy for you to get on the list! Here are the prizes for this part of the contest…

Place: Cloaks Needed: What You Will Win:
#1
100+
$500 Cash + Solo Ad Mailing Credit (Total Value: $697.97)!
#2
90+
$250 Cash + 10k Mailing Credit (Total Value: $302.97)!
#3
80+
$150 Cash + 10k Mailing Credit (Total Value: $202.97)!
#4
70+
$100 Cash + 10k Mailing Credit (Total Value: $152.97)!
#5
60+
10k Mailing Credit + 500 Guaranteed Visitors (Total Value: $117.97)!
#6
50+
500 Guaranteed Visitors + 5,000 Viralbar Credits + 5,000 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $93.00)!
#7

#10
10+
2,500 Viralbar Credits + 2,500 Banner Ad Credits (Total Value: $14.00)!
