We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Every business, whether on the internet or a brick and mortar shop, needs an autoresponder program. Why? Because as a business owner you want and need to get your name out in the world. What are you selling and why? Who are you selling to? With an email list you can send out messages about upcoming sales or to share business tools. No matter your niche or market, an autoresponder is the means of getting your message out to your customers.

There is money in the list. Not a cliche. It’s a fact

You Don’t Need to be a Marketing Expert

Email marketing is an important tool every business needs. TrafficWave.net packs a lot of tools and services under one umbrella and thoroughly teaches you how to use each aspect.

I had been toying with different autoresponder programs and hadn’t settled on one that was not only easy to use, but also fully functional for various websites and businesses.

This is a review for TrafficWave.net. I hope this post will help you make an educated choice for the most appropriate autoresponder program for you and your business.

The Money is in the List

As mentioned above, this is not a cliche. Businesses, big and small, spend money on advertising in order to bring potential customers to your business.

Restaurants, hotels, publishers, real estate agents, home based businesses, consulting firms, copywriters, sports clubs, religious groups, entertainers, etc., all have something in common. They each have a need to communicate more effectively within their organization, to generate interest and increase overall engagement.

Thousands of businesses all over the world can benefit from email marketing. No matter if you have one list or 50 lists. No matter if you have 500 or 50,0000 subscribers, the monthly price for TrafficWave stays the same.

Review of: TrafficWave

Website: TrafficWave.net

Monthly Fee: 30-Day Free Trial. $17.95/month thereafter

Rank: 95 out of 100

Who Needs it and Why Do We Want it?

I was introduced to TrafficWave three months ago. I was skeptical mostly because some of these programs can be bulky with so many features, you don’t know where to turn first. Like many of you, I can easily become frustrated with a program and give up on it quickly.

TrafficWave was that program…at first. I started watching the training videos on every aspect of setting up an autoresponder campaign. Hmm, that made it a bit easier. But I was still skeptical.

Then I proceeded to set up my first campaign. With TrafficWave you are never alone. Between the training videos, the Documentation Wiki Training and the Member Forum, there is help around every corner.


Email Marketing

Sign-Up is Easy

Upon registering, you can choose the FREE 30-day trial, with no credit card or payment information required. No hard-sell and no upsells.

Create Your First Campaign

Follow along with the clear and concise training modules that guide you through the campaign set-up process. Within a matter of minutes, you have set up your first marketing campaign.

Writing Your Emails is Easy  

Choose from a blank slate or a well-crafted template to start your first email. I personally like the templates because you can add elements such as social media links and pattern the emails after your own website brand. The drag-and-drop feature makes this really easy.

Easily add graphics to your emails either selecting something from the numerous graphics available onsite or upload your own. You can also personalize each email with the subscribers name in not only the subject line but in the body of the email as well.

Select when you want your first email to go out to your audience, immediately or a day later. You can also create email blasts or broadcasts to go out immediately to your entire list, to a select few or schedule the perfect time for you. Say you have a sale coming up in your Etsy shop and you want to send out the announcement to your entire list on a specific day. Done! It’s that easy.

Build Your List

With TrafficWave you can add subscriber forms to your website or blog and start converting visitors into actual customers.

Contact management is seamless as TrafficWave handles unsubscribe requests, bounces, etc., automatically. With this out of the way, you can focus on growing your business.

Collect as much or as little data as you want or need, from the basic name and email information to full details. This helps you to segment your subscribers as narrow or as wide as you choose.

Track Like a Pro

Easily follow how many of your messages are being opened. You can also track click-throughs and ultimately the effectiveness of each letter in your email marketing campaign. It’s important to know where your results are coming from.

Pros:

  • Free 30-day trial
  • Easy to follow video tutorials
  • Email templates with drag and drop feature
  • One low price no matter how many lists or subscribers
  • Email management that is easy and efficient

Cons:

  • So many features, you can easily feel overwhelmed. (Not really a con though, is it!)
  • Not the newest autoresponder program on the market

The Icing on the Autoresponder Cake


Email Marketing


TrafficWave also has an affiliate program. Using the powerful email marketing tools available to you in your own business, you can also build an additional stream of income by referring new customers to TrafficWave.net.

As a TrafficWave affiliate you can earn residual commissions on every new business you refer. This fact, in addition to all the other perks, puts this autoresponder above all others. TrafficWave.net pays weekly and monthly commissions based on new and recurring sales.

Four Ways to Earn as an Affiliate

  • Weekly Fast-Track Bonuses. Get paid weekly each time you refer new (active) customers to TrafficWave.net autoresponder service. Earn 100% of new sales revenue as a Fast Track Bonus.
  • Four levels of monthly residual commissions. Surfer, TidalWave and Tsunami levels each add another level of potential income.
  • Leadership Bonus: Active affiliates who have achieved the status of TidalWave or Tsunami can qualify to earn bonuses each month.
  • Guaranteed Traffic Commission. Affiliates are paid 10% commission on each sale of Guaranteed Visitors. These sales are paid each month with the monthly regular commission, with no limit to the amount of Guaranteed Traffic Commissions an affiliate can earn.

Try it and See For Yourself

As if it were enough to have all these email marketing tools available at your fingertips, adding the huge benefit of affiliate opportunities, takes TrafficWave.net to a whole new level.

After three months as a member of TrafficWave, I now have four campaigns set up, one for each of my websites and one as an affiliate list.

I’m excited to be able to share this email marketing platform with you. I would not steer you to something that I would not do myself. Having used this autoresponder, I’m entirely sold on its effectiveness and ease of use.

You have 30 days to try it for free. See for yourself.

  1. Hi Sue, and thanks for this review. I haven’t started using an autoresponder yet, so reading a review like this really helps. It’s nice that it has an affiliate program as well. That might get the program to pay for itself!
    Cheers,
    Suzanne

    1. Hello Suzanne, thank you so much for your comment. When you’re ready, I hope this review will help you make the right decision for you. I chose TrafficWave for a few reasons, but one important point was being able to be to earn money at the same time. Let me know if you have any questions. I’m happy to help you in any way I can.

      All the best,
      Sue

  2. Excellent post. I have a difficult time giving up sugary soda. But one substitute I am really enjoying is using club soda with strong helping of lime or lemon juice on ice, no sweetners. Its like a lemonade or limenade and calorie free. There are definitely places I can improve – more sleep and less fried foods, but I love fried foods. I try to keep balance when I can. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Tara, You know, every day is a chance for me to improve my diet, even just a little bit. You’re so right about trying to keep things in balance and moderation is key.

      Thank you so much for your comment.

      All the best,
      Sue

  3. Hi Sue. I am always looking for new affiliate programs that I can join, having additional ways to earn is great. I haven’t used an autoresponder before either, I will have to check this one out.

    1. Hi Tara, the great thing about TrafficWave is that you can take advantage of the free 30 day offer. I’d love to hear how you like it. Also, don’t hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions about it.

      All the best,
      Sue

  4. This autoresponder sounds like a great alternative to some of the others I have looked into. I like the idea of the free trial to be sure. I am still on the fence if I need an autoresponder yet with the age of my business and websites. I have one that is really new, only a few weeks. The other is 6 months of age. Traffic is about 500 – 525 unique visits a month. In your opinion am I at the point where an email list and an autoresponder makes sense? Or should I wait until I have grown my traffic more? I appreciate your feedback.

    1. Hi Christina, I agree about your younger website, to wait a bit until your traffic increases. But your website that has at least 500 unique visitors is perfect for an autoresponder program. There are so many ways you can use TrafficWave too. You can make a sign up form and put it into a widget on your sidebar (if you use a sidebar). The letters are easy to write and you can start from a blank page or use one of their many templates. Also, of course, the affiliate opportunity that is a substantial asset. Let me know if you have any questions.

      All the best,
      Sue

  5. Wow what a great review you have written here Sue, really enjoyed reading it.
    You laid it out really well, with all the bonuses and the ways to work with this great program.
    I love the graphic you have for it too =)
    If this is such a great product with no “real” con’s to it – why did you give it only 95 out of 100? I would think more like 98…cause nothing is really perfect…
    What is your take on this?
    Cheers – Orion

    1. Hi Orion, thank you so much for your comment! I’m sure I could have rated it a 98% for sure. My personal score is because there is still a learning curve to it, as with all autoresponder programs. The thing that sent it over-the-top in my book is the affiliate program side of it…but I can’t do a rating of 110%…or could I? LOL! Thanks for bringing that point up. I may be bringing that score up a bit though because the average between 95 and 110 would be more like 98%.

      All the best to you,
      Sue

  6. Hello Sue,
    Thanks for such a thorough analysis of TrafficWave. Yes, I agree with you. Every business niche should have an autoresponder to help automate the business when it comes to its clients. TrafficWave obviously has a plan and one that works too.
    Great job.
    Michelle

    1. Hi Michelle, I think, for me, the top two essential parts of TrafficWave are its easy of use and availability of training. Most definitely a full-featured autoresponder service. Thank you for your comments, Michelle.

      All the best,
      Sue

  7. Hi, Sue!

    Thanks for this post and the information in it, for sure!

    I have been agonizing over an autoresponder for a while now. Even though I have no traffic as of yet, some of the big names in internet marketing, such as Pat Flynn, tell us it’s never too early to get started (even if you have zero traffic)!

    I had just about decided to go with GetResponse because of the monthly fee. However, I wasn’t sure if it was really as dependable as some of the others.

    I went over to the TrafficWave website from your link to check it out. I’m really impressed with what I see!

    I love the flat fee! That is so enticing for the present (basically the same monthly fee as the other platforms) and especially for the long run. I also liked what they said about continually checking the platform to make sure it is dependable concerning deliverability, which was my concern with GetResponse (and others).

    Then there’s the affiliate program! What an awesome opportunity it presents! I have just started this home business site for the WA Bootcamp and I’m in Phase 2 Lesson 4 where Kyle suggests another review for an affiliate product! This post couldn’t be more timely! I can make my next review on this product. I have decided to take the plunge and sign up for TrafficWave AND the affiliate program! Don’t worry, I’ll sign under your link!

    Thanks for this awesome and timely post!

    Best wishes,

    Donnie

    1. Hi Donnie, you absolutely made my day! I’ve tried other autoresponder programs, especially a few that were recommended by members on Wealthy Affiliate. Then I heard about TrafficWave. Too many benefits to pass up.

      I’m about at the same place in WA Bootcamp, Donnie. I’ve gone back over several of the lessons a few times and I always learn a little bit more.

      If you have any other questions about TrafficWave, let me know. I’m happy to help any way I can.

      All the best,
      Sue

  8. I haven’t started with an auto responder yet, but often think about signing up. This post has certainly made it easier for me to decide now. Thanks for sharing this review and the fact that I can also earn money from this as an affiliate is a winner for me. What is the monthly cost for TrafficWave?

    1. Hi Carol, thank you so much for your comments on this post. The cost is $17.95 a month and when people sign up under you, it pays for itself. Another thing I really like about TrafficWave are their video tutorials. Very thorough and very concise. And you can easily check your website stats, etc. You can set up as many campaigns as you want and they offer some really great templates to work from.

      Please let me know if you have any questions, Carol. I’m happy to help in any way I can.

      All the best,
      Sue

  9. My life is been a bit hectic lately, but I know it’s getting to that point when I need an autoresponder because I am averaging about a 1000 visitors a month to my site. Leaving some potential business off the table. I have started looking into the other autoresponders and I agree with you that the 30 day free trial and forever fixed rate makes TrafficWave very attractive. Your post has convinced me even more of the benefits. Thanks for the excellent article.

    1. Hi Thabo, thank you so much for your comments. Yes, with traffic at that rate, I agree, you could very well be leaving potential business off the table as you say. There are many autoresponder companies out there, I tried four others before I discovered TrafficWave. The 30-day trial helps a lot and the bonus, for me, was the fact that it also affiliate benefits as well. Let me know if you have any questions about this program. I’m happy to help any way I can.

      All the best,
      Sue

  10. Dear Sue,

    Thanks for the thorough review on Trafficwave and I wanted to give you a thumps up. You have addressed all the details I need to know. I’ve tried out many other programs online and failed to make any money with all of them. So I always read reviews about products to gain more knowledge before buying it. Your review is very helpful I will come back to your website to learn more information. Thanks again.

    Your Friend,
    Paul

    1. Hello Paul, thank you so much for your comments on this post. Through Traffic Wave and their training, I have learned a great deal on the benefits of having a “full-service” autoresponder program. You can’t go wrong with TrafficWave.

      All the best,
      Sue
