The Best Safelists for May 2022

Author: Jerry Iannucci


Yes, I am still here.  I know my last post was a little “doom and gloomy” but all hope is not lost.  While a few major safelists were affected by the gmail blockages in March most safelists have continued to operate without any interruptions.   Nothing new has really happened since.  Activity is still high on most of the safelists I am using and for the most part, it is still business as usual.

In May I resumed my safelist mailings and used my credits to promote one of my marketing funnels.  You can see the page I was promoting here. I’m still using 40+ safelists and try to spend time every day submitting my ads and reading emails for credits.  I do have upgrades at many of the safelists I use which I’m sure helps to improve my results.  The stats below were achieved using only the credit mailers on the safelists and do not include sign-ups from banner ads or login ads.  The “signups” represent the number of people who have filled out the opt-in form on my page and verified their email addresses.  My own Mister Safelist does not appear on this list but if it were it would probably be near the top ;)

Name Hits Signups
TezzerMail 382 8
Viral URL 83 6
European Safelist 4203 5
Viral Mailer For You 862 3
List Adventure 896 3

Total April Sign-ups: 33

As always please keep in mind that the numbers I post here are the result of my marketing efforts. What you are promoting and how you promote it will likely make your results different from mine. The only way to tell what sites work best for you is to track your results. Good luck!


March was a tough month for a lot of safelists.

What happened?

It seems that Gmail, the email provider safelist owners have been recommending for the past few years, has decided that they don’t like safelists nearly as much as they used to.

I had noticed in February that emails from Mister Safelist had started showing up in my “Spam” folder.  I tried teaching Gmail that these emails were “Not Spam” and clicked the appropriate buttons to do so.

During the first week of March, the unthinkable happened.  All emails from Mister Safelist sent to Gmail accounts began bouncing with this error message:

host gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com[] said: 550-5.7.1
Our system has detected that this message is 550-5.7.1 likely
unsolicited mail. To reduce the amount of spam sent to Gmail, 550-5.7.1
this message has been blocked.

The kiss of death!

If you have ever used any sort of safelist or list builder you know that emails are never sent “unsolicited”.  The whole point of a “safe” list is that everyone using the list has agreed to receive emails from other members of the list.  But how does one go about explaining this to Gmail?

I wasn’t the only safelist hit.  It seems a random selection of owners all using different scripts on different servers were blocked by Gmail.

I have managed to get Mister Safelist back up and running with some modifications that I hope will prevent it from happening again.  It’s still scary though.  I hate the feeling that Gmail could pull the rug out from under me again any time they feel like it.

What is the solution?

A few mailers have switched to “On-Site” emails only.  This seems like the smart path to take but I wonder if these ads will be as effective as actual email ads.

Safelist marketing has been around for a long time.  Even I can admit it’s very “old school” when compared to what a lot of people are doing with social media right now.  When used correctly safelists can still be a very powerful marketing tool but these recent events have made me wonder about their future.

Could this be the beginning of the end for safelists as we know them?



The Best Safelists for March 2022

Still chugging along.

Last month I promoted a lead capture page for a free report called “No More 9-5“.  The stats below show the number of new verified subscribers I received as a result of promoting this page in various safelist mailers.  These stats do not include any new subscribers I received from banner/text/login ads.  Just credit mails.  I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend time clicking credit emails to send my ads to as many people as I can as often as I can.

European Safelist – 13
List Nerds – 6
Viral URL – 5
State of the Art Mailer – 3
Leads n Profits – 3
List Avail – 2
Tezzer Mail – 2

Total February Sign-ups: 45

That’s all for this month.  Keep in mind that the stats above are the results of my marketing efforts.  Your results may vary. What you choose to promote and how you promote it will determine your success however if you are not tracking your results you will never know what works and what doesn’t.  For tracking your stats in the safelists you use or anywhere else you choose to promote I recommend using HitsConnect.

I’m back!

I’ve been super busy these last few months trying new things and building my business in new directions. Safelist marketing continues to be an important part of my business. I use safelists almost every day to bring new customers into my business and I don’t see that changing any time soon.

A few announcements before we get to my stats…

List Nerds is back! That’s right. List Nerds has been relaunched as “The First Ever Blockchain-Based Mailer”. This offers a fresh take on email advertising and how it can be used. Is this the future of safelist marketing? I don’t know but it is worth checking out if you are into crypto and blockchain technologies. Give List Nerds a try!

Ok, on to the stats…

Just to get the basic disclaimers out of the way, the stats below came from the 40 or so safelists that I use almost every day to promote my sites.  The “Conversions” listed below are the number of people who subscribed to my mailing list through the page I am promoting and verified their email addressed.  While there are many other safelists out there these are the ones I am currently using.  These stats show only the number of new members received by using the “credit mailer” and do not include any banner or login ads.  I also like to point out that I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  My own Mister Safelist does not appear on this list but it should always be assumed that Mister Safelist is awesome.

ViralURL – 11
European Safelist – 10
Instant Ad Power – 8
List Nerds – 4
Trend Mails – 2
List Avail – 2

Total January Conversions: 54

The following safelists each generated over 1,000 hits to my pages last month:

European Safelist – 4,332
State of the Art Mailer – 1,871
Website Traffic Rewards – 1,240
List Avail – 1,220
Instant Ad Power – 1,177
List Adventure – 1,124

Don’t forget that the stats above are provided only to show which mailers are currently working best for me at this time.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what sites work best for you is to track your ads using a service like HitsConnect.

Happy New Year!

I had hoped to do another “end of the year” post to highlight the best safelists from last year but because I switched tracking services in the middle of the year and since I  have been testing a lot of different pages over the past few months I simply didn’t feel like I had enough data to do a proper list.

Instead I decided to post a master list of all the safelist mailers I am currently using here at the start of 2022.

The Best Safelists for December 2021

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello again!

As we approach the end of 2021 it is more important than ever to continue driving targeted web traffic to your offers and safelists continue to be a great way to do that.

I’m pretty old school so as we move into 2022 I would like to ask… what are some other great free sources of traffic that you are using to build your list? Let me know in the comments below!

Now for my stats…

During November I decided to dust off a “make money” squeeze page that I have been using to build my list in the “work at home” niche. My stats are generated from using only the credit mailers of these safelists and do not include login ads or banners ads or anything like that. I am upgraded at many of these sites and try to spend time every day reading emails to earn credits. I currently submit to 40-50 different safelists. I don’t use every safelist out there and I am constantly updating that list based on my advertising results. I do not include my own Mister Safelist here as I prefer to let other reviewers take care of that. I provide these stats only to show what is currently working best for me. Your results may vary.

Name Hits Signups
European Safelist 3224 4
State of the Art Mailer 1738 4
List Mailer Plus 772 3
Leads N Profits 518 3
Viral URL 170 3
TezzerMail 402 3

Total November Sign-ups: 39

It was not a great month for me but I have also been taking more time off lately to spend time with my family.  Please note that the stats above are provided only to show what is working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what sites work best for you is to track your own ads.  I recommend using HitsConnect to handle all of your link tracking needs.

Welcome back to my top safelist rankings for November 2021!

With trck.me officially gone I am now tracking all of my ads using HitsConnect.  So far I am liking it much better.  I feel like I have a lot more flexibility with how I track my ads.  However, I won’t be posting my “unique” percentages any more.  I don’t think it will be missed much since I think the conversions are much more important.  If you still aren’t tracking your ads I do recommend HitsConnect.

Here are my safelist stats from last month…

Every month I share the stats I obtained from my previous month of safelist advertising.  Last month I used all of my traffic to promote two lead capture pages giving away a free copy of my book Safelist Marketing Tactics. The stats below reflect the number of people who saw my page and subscribed to my list.  I used about 40 different safelists throughout the month to send my ads.  While I do have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists I use I still spend a lot of time clicking credit links to send my ads to more people.  These stats were obtained using only the standard credit mailer and do not include banner ads, login ads, etc.

Name Hits Signups
European Safelist 4041 9
State of the Art Mailer 1971 5
Leads N Profits 558 5
Viral URL 105 3
Instant Ad Power 1446 3
Go Pro Mailer 201 3
Traffic Leads 2 Income 679 2
Adchiever 595 2

Total October Sign-Ups: 42

Please note that the stats I share here are the results of my own marketing efforts throughout the previous month for the pages I am promoting. What works best for me might not be the same as what works best for you. These lists are intended to be a jumping off point for you. To find out what works best for you I highly recommend tracking your own ads.


The Best Safelists for September 2021

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome back!

I know.  I have been gone for a while.  This year my partner managed to convince me to go outside and enjoy the summer so that’s exactly what I did!  I still managed to get a lot of work done but I backed off on my daily safelist submissions enough that I didn’t feel like I had enough quality data to share here.

Now I am back!

Summer is ending and now is the time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work!  Activity is high across all of my sites which tells me that now is a great time to be advertising and I am here to share with you some of the best sites I am using.

Here are my stats from last month…

Below you will find the top producing sites out of the 40+ different safelists I use every month.  I do have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists I use and still try to spend some time reading ads every day to help maximize my credits.  Last month I promoted a few lead capture pages for my book Safelist Marketing Tactics.  The “Sign Ups” below reflect how many people have confirmed their email addresses after opting into my list.  The sign-ups only come from email ads and do not include banners or login ads.

Name Hits Unique Signups Ratio
European Safelist 5161 59.00% 9 0.17%
State of the Art Mailer 1962 60.00% 6 0.31%
Adchiever 1095 54.00% 4 0.37%
Leads N Profits 618 49.00% 4 0.65%
Viral URL 88 69.00% 3 3.41%
TezzerMail 492 48.00% 3 0.61%

Total August Sign-Ups: 44

That’s all for this month.  Keep in mind that the mailers that work best for me might not be the best for everyone.  It depends on what you are promoting and how you are promoting it.  It’s always a good idea to track your ads to find out what traffic sources work best for you.  For a good link tracker that can handle all of your marketing links check out HitsConnect.

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome back to my rankings for the top safelists of 2021.

Below you will find a partial listing of my safelist stats from last month. I gathered these stats from the 30-40 different safelists and mailers that I use to promote my ads every month. I am currently promoting two lead capture pages for Safelist Marketing Tactics that I am using to build my list.

The “sign-ups” represent the number of people who have subscribed to my list and verified their email address.

These stats are provided only to show what is currently working best for me and my ads. Your results my vary.

Name Hits Unique Signups Ratio
European Safelist 4850 63.00% 4 0.08%

TezzerMail 451 50.00% 2 0.44%

Total May Sign-Ups: 30

Just a reminder that the safelists which work best for me might not be the best ones for you.  It really depends on what you are promoting and how you are promoting it.  Make sure you are tracking your own ads to find out what traffic sources work best for you.  If you are not currently using a link tracker on your ads I recommend checking out HitsConnect.


Program Review: Landing Page Monkey

Author: Jerry Iannucci

One of the most important parts of any sales funnel is your landing page.  In most cases this is your prospect’s first introduction to you and whatever it is you are promoting.  Having a good landing page could make all the difference in whether or not your new prospect becomes a customer.

Over the last few months I have tried a number of landing pager design services that offer page building platforms and can also host the pages for you.  I was looking for something easy enough for any newbie to get inside and create a killer landing page without costing an arm an a leg.

I settled on “Landing Page Monkey” which was advertised as a way to take away all of the work normally involved in creating great looking landing pages.

I like Landing Page Monkey because you don’t need to touch a single line of code to make your page. Simply log into your dashboard, click your way through the user-friendly form, and in just five minutes you can have a cutting-edge, high-converting and mobile-responsive landing page to build your mailing list or sell your products.

A created a few sample pages so you can get an idea of how easy it is to make a professional looking landing page.

Sample 1 – A blank template.

Sample 2 – A blank template with a YouTube video in the background.

Sample 3 – A finished landing page.

Here’s some of the key features offered by Landing Page Monkey:

• Delivers highly customizable pages. You can quickly fine-tune your landing page to get just the right look and feel to seamlessly integrate with your site. Landing Page Monkey lets you change layouts, font colors, font styles, background graphics and even background videos to give your landing page a cutting-edge, polished design that’s sure to impress.

• Make changes on the fly. You can tweak your landing page without disrupting sales or sign ups, touching the code, or uploading anything. Just log into your dashboard, make your changes, and hit save to instantly update your pages.

• Works with all major autoresponders.

• Works on your server or Landing Page Monkey will host your page for you. You can upload these pages to your own site, or save on bandwidth by letting Landing Page Monkey host the page for you at no extra charge.

• Tracks your campaigns. Landing Page Monkey tracks your impressions and mailing list sign ups so you can optimize your campaigns for maximum profits!

• Your pages will show up on all smart phones, tablets, laptops and other devices. Plus they’ve been rigorously tested to work across platforms, including Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and other major browsers.

• Saves you time and money. In just minutes you’ll have a beautiful landing page that looks like it was created by a high-priced web designer.

I’m really glad I gave Landing Page Monkey a try.  Being able to add any YouTube video as the background is super cool. I also love the way I can animate the ad to make it really stand out.  Having my ad automatically optimized for mobile devices and different screen sizes is also a huge plus!  The only downsides are as I am a little techy I wouldn’t mind a little more flexibility with the design options.  Also if there is a way to make a splash page without including the autoresponder sign-up form I haven’t figured out how to do it yet.

For sure if you want a great landing page maker that is easy to use, makes professional looking pages, and includes free hosting Landing Page Monkey is a great product.
