The Best Safelists for March 2015

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy March.

Welcome back to my blog where every month I share some of my advertising stats and post about what is new is the world of safelists and viral list builders.

The biggest launch last month was DownlineMaxx from Darren Olander and Troy WrayDownlineMaxx is a downline builder that features many of the top safelists.  What makes DownlineMaxx so special is the unique downline marketplace that lets you buy/rent program slots in other people’s downlines.  Don’t want to join a program in the downline builder?  You can always sell/rent out your unwanted slots to other members.  It’s very cool!  There is also a built in mailer so even if you are not interested in the downline builder you can still use it just like any other safelist.

Now lets get to the stats…

I am currently promoting my own Mister Safelist to over 40+ different safelists and viral list builders.  I do have upgraded memberships at many of these sites which allows me to send my ads more often.  I also spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads to the maximum amount of people.  These stats are provided only to show what is currently working best for me.

Total February sign-ups from safelists: 39

European Safelist continues to rock and I still don’t know why.  I am not complaining though.

Overall numbers are still a down a bit so I think next month I am going to switch back to list building.  I was hoping to get that started today but I still have some work to do before I can make the switch.

Please remember that these stats are merely a reflection of my own advertising efforts for what I am promoting.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to figure out what works best for you is to track your own ads.  You can get a free 30-day trial of the same link tracker I use from trck.me.

The Best Safelists for February 2015

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello again.

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.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
European Safelist 7708 55.00% 8 0.10%
Purple Vault Mailer 782 62.00% 4 0.51%

Instant Viral Mailer 836 40.00% 3 0.36%

My Free Resources 1009 53.00% 2 0.20%
Max Mailer Pro 1531 43.00% 2 0.13%

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.

The Best Safelists for January 2015

Author: Jerry Iannucci

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.

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.

The Best Safelists for November 2014

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy November!

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.

The Best Safelists for October 2014

Author: Jerry Iannucci

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!

The Best Safelists for September 2014

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I’m back!

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.

The Best Safelists for July 2014

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello July!

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.

The Best Safelists for June 2014

Author: Jerry Iannucci

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.

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.
