The Best Safelists for May 2012

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to May!

It’s the first of the month and that means it’s time to dig out my marketing stats from last month and see which safelists and viral list builders are currently bringing me the best results.

But first… here’s what happened last month.

I finally got List Outbreak working!  List Outbreak is a new old-school style viral list builder from Mike Purvis that requires you to get 2 referrals before you can use the mailer.  I promoted List Outbreak briefly when it first launched but it seems there was a problem with my account that was preventing my referrals from being recorded.  I never mentioned List Outbreak here because I didn’t want to recommend something I have not used.  Once we fixed what was wrong with my account Jared Silver and Winnie Peric were kind enough to join under me and unlock my mailer.  Now that I can see the “viral” aspect of List Outbreak in action I can really see the potential of this unique mailer.  List Outbreak debuts low on my rankings list this month but I hope to see my results continue to increase as my downline grows.

Easily the biggest news from last month is the launch of Matthew Graves’s TopTierMailer.  You can read my full review here: read review

I admit I didn’t join TopTierMailer right away.  The site is running on a unique script and there were some early bugs that needed to be worked out.  It’s still not 100% but it’s getting there.  I started using TopTierMailer less than 2 weeks ago and it has already secured a top spot in my rankings right next to the sites I have been using all month.  With now over 3,700 members and new members pouring in every day TopTierMailer is definitely the place to be right now.

That’s what’s happening… now let’s get to the stats!

Here’s how it works.  Every day I use 30-40 different safelists and viral list builders to promote squeeze pages that give away free copies of my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I track all of my emails using a free link tracker to see how often my emails are read as well as how many new subscribers I receive to my list.  I then share those stats here on my blog each month to show you which safelists and viral list builders are bringing me the best results.

I think it is important to point out that I do have upgraded memberships at most of these sites which often gives me the ability to send my ads more often than free members.  My ads are also very targeted to other safelist members which does help to increase my response rate.  Your results my vary.

List Outbreak 519 65.00% 5 0.96%
List Effects 221 63.00% 4 1.81%

Your EZ List continues to kick butt and I can’t figure out why.  The site is about as plain as it gets but the members appear to be extremely active.  I don’t know if it will be at the top of the list forever but for now Your EZ List is highly recommended.

I mentioned last month that I had been using List Bonus without the added benefits of an upgraded member.  Now that I am upgraded List Bonus is once again performing like one of the best mailers as I always believed it was.  Very happy to be back.

And look at TopTierMailer!  As I mentioned earlier I have only been using the mailer for less than 2 weeks.  I will be surprised if TopTierMailer is not at the very top of the list next month.

That’s all for this month.  Don’t forget that these stats are the result of my own personal marketing efforts.  I provide these stats only to show what is currently working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different but you will never know unless you are tracking your ads.  You can get the same free link tracker that I use from TE Toolbox.
