State-of-the-Art-Mailer , often referred to as SOTAM, is one of the most established and well-known safelist mailing sites used today. It was founded in 2010 by Brad Webb and currently boasts a membership of 41,067 including some top names in online marketing. SOTAM has paid out over $417,000 in commissions.
I have been a member of SOTAM for several years and it is one of my favorite mailers included in my Review Best Safelist Sites.
How does SOTAM work ?
SOTAM members earn credits by reading emails either in their own inbox or within the SOTAM site and clicking on links within the emails. These links open websites and a timer counts down before awarding credits. The member may then use the credits to advertise through the safelist mailer.
There are other advertising options such as the Golden Solo Ad, Time Bonus Banner, Hyperlinked Text Ad, Full Page Ads, Viral Banners and more.
How much is SOTAM ?
SOTAM membership is free but the basic free membership comes with a
500 button level meaning members can email up to 500 other members every
5 days. It is possible to increase the number of members mailed by
earning more credits up to a limit of 3000, however upgrades can also be
purchased and come with added advantages. For example upgrading to the
1500 button level costs $8.80 monthly or $52.78 for 6 months means 1500
members can be mailed every 3 days or 5000 members through button
escalation. Payments by Skrill are also discounted. The following is a summary of the button levels.
Does SOTAM Pay Commissions ?
In fact not only does SOTAM pay commissions but it also pays Click For Cash or CFC where members click on ads which open for 5 second after which they receive $0.002 per click. Members also have the choice of claiming mailing credits or cash for every site viewed. It is also possible to become a CFC member only.
As you can see from above the commissions are very generous paying 10% up to 50% of the $ amounts spent by referrals.
Time Bonus Ad Widget
SOTAM has a lot of features specifically for blog or website owners and one of these is the Time Bonus Ad Widget which is placed into a site and generates ad time. For more information please read my article What is a Time-Based Advertising System.
