Should you be using Viral URL?

A few minutes ago, I discovered an interesting new system called Viral Url. It`s a system where you can cloak and track your urls, and you can build a downline and earn an income from doing it, and you can send e-mails to your downline and promote whatever you are selling.

Viral Url seems to be a marketing tool and a way to earn an income online. But should you sign up and start using it?

I am not really sure. I have just signed up myself, and the reason I did it is because it`s brand new (as far as I know) and it was free. I am still reading about what they got to offer and I am still a little confused about whether the system is all good or not.

The only problem I see, is that when you use Viral Url to cloak your affiliate urls and use it to promote something, all your affiliate sites will get a Viral url bar at the bottom (I think it`s at the bottom). If somebody click on it and signs up, they will be in your downline and you can earn money from them and that`s a good thing. But what if a bar at the bottom takes the whole focus away from what you are trying to sell in the first place?

Viral Url might be a great thing, but when you use it to cloak and track your affiliate urls, you might only be promoting Viral Url and not what you are suppose to be promoting, if you know what I mean. I am not sure that this is the case, but I am still not sure…

Anyway, Viral Url seems to be a very interesting system… but I still need to think about whether if it`s as interesting as I first thought.

Be sure to visit Viral Url and make up your own mind.

    I totally agree! Money is just a means to an end which is to gain more time! One thing you can never get more of is time. It doesn’t matter if you have a billion dollars if you’ve wasted it pursuing money and in the meanwhile neglecting your family and health.

    I agree, I also signed up, but after seeing my affiliate sites opening with a viral url bar at the top, it didn't look legit to me and figured it might scare away potential clients. I stopped using it for now…maybe when sales volume increases ill perform a test

    let us know how your test goes, if you put the bar in the footer it might work even better?

    Anyone tested it ? Does it work the way you expected ?

    I just started using Viral Url because my link tracker was tracking hundreds of clicks but little to no sales on some products. I’m not a fan of the viral bar at the bottom of merchant pages but if cloaking this way saves me from marketers stealing my links its more than worth it.
