It’s February and time again to talk a little about what’s been happening in the world of safelists and viral list builders.
A few new mailers launched last month that are worth mentioning.
The first is Purple Vault Mailer. Launched by Sarah Louise with the support of Steve Ayling Purple Vault Mailer features a unique game that encourages members to open emails in an attempt to open the “Purple Vault”. I have only been using this one for a little while but so far the results have been good.
The second new mailer is Punch Card Mailer from Marcy McManaway. Marcy is the author of Simple Mail Builder which is great ebook on safelist marketing. Needless to say Marcy knows a thing or two about safelists so I am excited to see what she does with Punch Card Mailer.
I am also happy to announce that my own Mister Safelist has recently passed 5,000 active members! This is a big deal for me because having 5,000 active members was a goal of mine way back when I first launched the site. With the number of people who come and go it’s exciting to see the site still maintaining a positive growth after all this time. So, yay me!
Ok, let’s get to this month’s stats.
The way these stats work is that I submit to 40-50 different safelists as often as I can throughout the month. I am promoting splash pages for my own Mister Safelist and keep track of how many verified sign-ups I receive from my mailings. I am upgraded at most of these mailers which allows me to send my ads more often and reach more people. I also spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to reach as many people as possible. I don’t count the sign-ups that come from banner ads or login ads or anything like that. These stats are all just from using the credit mailer.
Total January sign-ups from safelists: 44
Go European Safelist! Once again solidly topping off the list.
That’s all for this month. As usual I like to point out that these stats are only provided to show what is working best for me with the ads I am promoting. What works best for you might be something different but these sites should be a good place to start. The best advice to find out what works best to you is to track your own links. You can get the same link track that I use from trck.me.
Happy New Year!
It’s time again to cover what is going on in the safelist/viral mailer arena.
And just like last month… nothing much is going on.
It seems like it has been months since anything new launched that was worth talking about. Plenty of new mailers with new owners but nothing innovative that we haven’t see hundreds of times already.
It could just be me. I guess I have been in a rut lately. I’ve been trying to get my Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook updated for 2015. The goal was to have it done by today but obviously that hasn’t happened. I’m starting to think that writing a brand new ebook would be easier than going back and updating one I already wrote. Hopefully I can get myself back into a groove and get that done this month. I think that is something we could all use.
Ok, I know you’re just here for the stats so here they are…
These stats are the results of my own marketing efforts during the month of December. I am currently using 40-50 safelists to promote my own safelist Mister Safelist. I do have upgrades at most of these sites and I try to spend time every day clicking for credits to send my ads as often as possible to the most people I can. The stats are provided only to show what is currently working best for me for what I am promoting. Your results my vary.
Total December Sign-ups: 47
Hello European Safelist!
I don’t know what they are doing over there but it seems to be working, European Safelist was #1 last month too but not like this.
Just goes to show you don’t need to be using the latest mailers with the newest scripts to get great results.
Keeping it short this month.
Nothing new to report.
Below you will find my top safelist advertising stats for last month. I am using these mailers to promote my own Mister Safelist. These stats are only provided to show what is currently working best for me. Depending on what you are promoting, how you are promoting, and how much time and money you put into your advertising your results may vary.
Total November sign-ups: 48

Not much news to report but I did check out a few new mailers last month.
The first is Guaranteed Mails from Marty Petrizza. Marty is a great admin who has been doing this for a long time. Her newest creation offers guaranteed traffic for every email you send. So far it’s has been working very well.
The second is Mailer Daddy. I have no idea who owns this one but it is supposed to be a unique script (even though it looks very much like a few others I use). No stats yet but hopefully good things to come from this one.
Legends Mailer from Janet Legere and Matthew Graves launched at the end of September but so far I am really enjoying this one. It sounds simple but I love the way you can schedule all of your emails in advance without the need to login every 24 hours. It’s worth checking out if you haven’t tried it yet.
Ok, on to the stats…
As usual I provide these stats to show what is currently working best for me in my marketing campaigns. I am promoting my own Mister Safelist which is why it is not included in the stats below. I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend time every day reading emails to send my ads to the most people as often as possible. I consider a “Signup” anyone who has clicked my ad, joined my site, confirmed their membership, and logged in for the first time.
Total October Signups: 54
A little better than last month but still not where I would like to be.
Interesting to note that State of the Art Mailer didn’t even make the list last month but shot back up to #1 this month. And of course it’s great to see the new Legends Mailer doing so well too.
That’s it for this month. If you want to make sure you are getting the most out of your advertising make sure you are tracking your own stats. You can get the same link tracker I use that will track all of your ads at all of your sites from Trck.me.
Summer is over.
This is typically one of the busiest periods of the year and a great time to be out there promoting.
Rather than join every new mailer that comes up I have just been focusing on the ones I already have. I did just join the new Legends Mailer that was just released by Janet Legere and Matthew Graves. No stats yet (I just joined) but definitely one to keep an eye on.
Here’s the rest of my stats.
As usual I am promoting my own Mister Safelist. I do have quite a few upgraded memberships and I spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads as often as possible.
Total September sign-ups: 39
Another weak month for me. The last few months I had excuses but I mailed almost every day last month. I’m not sure what is going on. Perhaps with so many new mailers being promoted out there it’s just getting hard for an ancient (3 years old) safelist to stand out. Any thoughts?
That’s all for this month. Remember these stats are only provided to show what is working best for me. To know what works best for you… track your ads!
I apologize for the lack of updates. I took a break last month and did a little travelling. I’m still not completely caught up but I am getting there and even though I still don’t have a full month of stats I wanted to make sure I could share what I do have.
I am a little behind on new mailer launches too. The two big ones I have are Link Punk from Ryan Hogan and My Free Resources from Robert Puddy (the guy who created the LFMVM script) and which is being run by Sunny Suggs (because Sunny rocks!). Both are sites are great but I still need more stats to compare.
If I have missed any other big launches feel free to post your link in the comments below.
So here’s what stats I do have…
I submit daily to 40+ safelists and viral list builders promoting my own Mister Safelist. I do have upgrades at many of these sites and try to spend time every day clicking emails to earn credits. Your results may vary.
Total August Sign-ups: 52
These stats are provided only to show what safelists and viral list builders are currently working best for me. What works best for you might be something entirely different. The only way to find out is to track your own results. You can get the same link tracker I use from trck.me.
Unfortunately this month’s update is going to be a bit abbreviated. For the past month I have been suffering from a lower back injury which has made it very difficult to sit (or stand) for very long. This has made it a bit of a challenge to be online as much as I am used to (I am actually kneeling as I write this). As a result I haven’t been able to keep up with my daily mailings as much as I would have liked.
I know, poor me.
I’m still here and I am not going anywhere. Unfortunately I have probably missed at least a week’s worth of mailings in June which is the most I have ever missed in all the years that I have been doing this. That means I have far less data to compare which are the best mailers going into July.
But I will share what I have got.
Consider these stats to be a respresentation of what you can achieve if you just submit occasionally… or something like that.
As usual I am still still promoting my own site Mister Safelist and I am (mostly) active in about 40 different safelists and viral mailers. A sign-up represents someone who clicked through my splash page and joined my site. These are just my stats based on what I am promoting. What you promote and how often you do it will most likely generate different results for you. I provide these stats to show what is currently working best for me and to hopefully give you a good starting point for where you can also promote.
Total June Sign-ups: 61
As I said, not a great month but the top sites still look consistant with what I have been getting in the past.
Feel free to leave any comments and get well wishes below.
Welcome to June!
As the so-called summer slowdown begins now would be a good time to double your efforts and start advertising more than your competition. This blog will hopefully give you a few new ways that you can do that.
Last month was a fairly slow month as well. The only new mailer I joined that is worth mentioning here is Rodeo Mailer which was launched at the beginning of last month by Mike Wysong. You can see my results there in the stats below.
Now let’s get to this month’s stats.
Here’s how it works. I am active in 40-50 safelists and viral list builders. I send my ads every day (or as often as they will let me) which promote my own Mister Safelist splash pages. I am upgraded in most of these sites and do spend time every day reading enough emails which allow me to send my ads to the most number of people. Your results my vary.
Total May sign-ups (including those not listed here): 90
Keep in mind that I have been advertising Mister Safelist daily for the last year and a half. The sites bringing me the more sign-ups are most likely the ones attracting the most new members. I would probably get better results if I were promoting something new and different.
Remember that these stats are the result of my own marketing efforts and are provided only to show what is currently working best for me. What works best for you might be something entirely different. The only way to find out which sites work best for you is to track your own results. You can get the same link tracker that I use from trck.me.
It’s that time again!
Welcome to May and to my blog where I share my monthly safelist advertising stats and talk about what’s going on in the industry.
Last month was actually very quiet. I didn’t join any new mailers and I can’t think of anything news worthy that happened.
So, how about some stats instead?
Below you will find the top safelists and viral mailers out of the 40 or so that I use on a regular basis which brought me the most sign-ups last month. I am currently using these mailers to promote my own Mister Safelist. I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend time every day reading emails to earn credits. Since you may be promoting something different from me your results will probably be different too. I provide these stats to show what is working best for me and to hopefully give you a starting point for new mailers to try.
Total April Signups: 101
Congrats to Kenny Kolijn at Fast List Mailer. Keep up the good work!
Remember, the stats above only show what is currently working best for me which allows me to focus more of my attention of the good sites. The only way to know which sites work best for you is to track your ads. The get the same link tracker I use from trck.me
Safelist marketing sucks!
Ok, now that I have gotten my annual April Fool’s joke out of the way… Hello! Welcome to April and a new month of what’s happening in the wonderful world of safelists, mailers, and viral list builders.
Apparently what isn’t an April Fool’s joke is today’s launch of 13 (yes, 13) new viral mailers as part of the Majestic-12 group (12 plus the main site). I’m still trying to wrap my head around launching 13 copies of the same site with different backgrounds. Maybe I am missing something?
The other big launch was about a week ago from Kenny Kolijn called Fast List Mailer. You may know Kenny from his other program BannerAdsThatPay which has been very successful. Fast List Mailer looks like a winner to me. It’s only a week old but as you can see in the stats below it is already performing better than most of my other mailers. Add that Kenny is going all-in on advertising to help grow the site makes Fast List Mailer a must join program this month.
List Adventure is now owned by the List Bonus guys. I think this is the second time List Adventure has gotten new owners and yet it is still one of my best performing mailers. Go figure.
List Hoopla suffered a major crash last month. It’s back up but unfortuately everyone lost their downlines which is definitely a bummer.
And now the stats…
I have started weeding out a lot of the safelists that haven’t been bringing me much success. I’m down to about 40 that I am actively using on a daily basis. I use these sites to promote my own Mister Safelist (which is why it’s not included in the stats) and keep track of which mailers bring me the most sign-ups. I am upgraded at most of the mailers I use and spend time every day clicking for credits to reach as many people as possible as often as possible. Your results may vary.
Total March 2014 sign-ups: 92
As usual these stats are the results of my own marketing efforts and are only provided to show what is currently working best for me. What works best for you might be something entirely different which is why it is so important to track your own stats. You can get the same tracking service I use at trck.me.
