Safelist Review – TopTierMailer

Author: Jerry Iannucci

TopTierMailer is the new viral list builder from Matthew Graves who is the creator of such popular traffic exchanges as WebBizInsider and TopTierTraffic.

TopTierMailer launched quietly on April 5, 2012.  I understand there were no JV partners for this launch but word has spread quickly.  It’s now 2 weeks later and TopTierMailer is fast approaching 3,000 members.

TopTierMailer is running on a similar version of the script used to run TopTierTraffic.  If you are a member of TopTierTraffic you will feel right at home here.  Because this is a unique script TopTierMailer offers some cool features not seen on any other safelist.

One of the first things you will notice is that TopTierMailer offers members an option to view emails right on the website.

This is great for people who are new to safelist marketing and aren’t ready to manage an inbox filled with daily emails.

The mailer also offers a unique feature not seen on other viral list builders.

Free Members can send an email to as many members as they have credits every 7 days. Premium Members are set for every 3 days. However, you dont have to send a single email to all the members. For example, if you had 2,000 credits, then you can send 1,000 members an email promoting Website A and the other 1,000 members a completely different email promoting Website B. You are not limited to sending a single email every 3 or 7 days. The limit is on how many emails you can send to EACH MEMBER every 3 or 7 days.

This means if you have multiple sites that you want to promote or if you want to split test different ads you don’t need to wait until your next mailing time to send multiple emails.

Another cool feature at TopTierMailer allows you transfer in your credits earned from Matthew’s traffic exchanges.  I love this feature because if I have read all of my emails and I still want more credits I can just head over to WebBizInsider and surf for more.

TopTierMailer is free but upgraded members also get these benefits:

  • 2,500 Weekly Mailing Credits
  • Get Double Credits for Reading Emails
  • Earn Credits Faster By Reading Emails in Digest Form (1 Email Per Day with all emails in it)
  • Digest Form Email Avoids Inbox Overload (1 Email Per Day with all emails in it)
  • Send Emails Every 3 Days (Free Is 7 Days)
  • Unlimited Banner Impressions (No Credits Needed)
  • Random Referrals Added To Your Downline (Yearly Membership Only)
  • Earn 50% Commissions (Free Is 10%)

The yearly membership is available immediately after joining.

While TopTierMailer has been online for about 2 weeks the mailer just opened a few days ago.  I sent my first email yesterday.  So far I have received 112 hits and 4 sign-ups.  Not bad for my first email.  I will continue to track my results and will be sharing my stats on my blog every month.

With nearly 3,000 members and 100 new ones joining every day TopTierMailer is definitely the place to be right now.  That’s a lot of active members and the perfect audience to be advertising to.  To say that I am excited for the future of TopTierMailer would be an understatement.  I am definitely looking forward to everything TopTierMailer has to offer.

The Best Safelists for April 2012

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Safelist marketing is a waste of time!

Ok, now that the April Fools joke is out of the way…

Hello and welcome to April!

Lots of good stuff to report this month so let’s get right to it.

First is a new safelist that was launched last week by my friend Anderson Goncalves.  It’s called Genie Mailer.  The site is brand new so there are not a lot of members yet but they are giving away free upgrades until they reach 500 members.  I spoke with Anderson this morning and he said they are just past 400 members.  If you join today you should still have time to lock in your free upgrade.  Click here to join.

I’m a big dummy.  I realized last month that I had been making some mistakes with a few popular mailers.  The first was Active Safelist.  I noticed last month that Active Safelist was ranked way at the bottom of my list with 0 sign-ups.  It’s a popular safelist and I submit there every day so that didn’t seem right to me.  I checked my ad and noticed I was using an old tracking link from almost 3 years ago.  Oops!  I updated it with my current tracking link so hopefully I should start seeing some better results there soon.

I also messed up with List Bonus but not as bad.  List Bonus is one of the very best mailers out there but I noticed over the last few months that it had been slipping in my rankings.  I try to maintain upgraded memberships at all of my safelists and viral list builders to keep everything fair but it turns out I was never upgraded at List Bonus.  Oops!  I grabbed their 1-year upgrade and now I am starting to see the full potential of this site.  Unfortunately I didn’t do this until 2 weeks ago so this month’s stats are going to be a little bit off.  I guess it says a lot though that even with a free membership List Bonus has been able to compete with all of my upgraded ones.

Now let’s get to the stats…

Here’s how it works.  Every day I send emails promoting a series of squeeze pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics on 30-40 different safelists and viral list builders.  I use a link tracking service which shows me how many hits I receive from each site as well as how many new subscribers I received.  As I mentioned earlier I do have upgraded memberships on most of these sites which often allows me to send my ads to more members and more often.  I also spend about an hour each day clicking for enough credits to send my ads to as many people as I can as often as possible.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Your EZ List 1139 67.00% 13 1.14%
The Lead Magnet 1026 57.00% 12 1.17%
State of the Art Mailer 3143 71.00% 10 0.32%
List Joe 1178 74.00% 10 0.85%
List Bonus 1463 69.00% 9 0.62%
Email-Hog 1521 77.00% 9 0.59%
Elite Safelist 2899 41.00% 8 0.28%
Adchiever 2808 68.00% 7 0.25%
Instant List Empire 579 61.00% 7 1.21%
Viral Mail Profits 366 63.00% 6 1.64%
Quick List Profits 419 63.00% 5 1.19%
List Adventure 986 56.00% 5 0.51%
Adsolutionline 2521 39.00% 4 0.16%
Viral List Builder Plus 1501 52.00% 4 0.27%
EZ Profit List 236 70.00% 3 1.27%

Total March sign-ups from all mailers (including those not listed here): 127

Not a bad month.  The top 3 seems pretty stable.  List Joe seems to bounce up and down in the rankings every month.  I’m not sure why that is.  Viral List Builder Plus also dropped from it’s top spot where it had consistently ranked for the last few months.  No idea why.  Everything else looks just about right though.

So ends another fun filled safelist ranking report.  Keep in mind that these are my own personal stats and they are based on my own efforts.  Your results will probably be different from my own.  I provide these stats every month to give you a starting point for some new safelists and viral list builders that you can try.  The only way to know which sites work best for you is to track your own stats.  You can get the same link tracker that I use for free from TE Toolbox.
