The Best Safelists for December 2012

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to another fun-filled month of safelist and viral list builder advertising!

Before we get to the stats I would like to call attention to some of the newest list mailers that launched last month.  There were actually quite a few.  The biggest ones were “Mail Our List” from Steve Ayling, “” from Maryanne Myers, and “Massive Traffic List” from Beth Allen which offers a whopping 18 different ways to advertise your sites.  I don’t have a full month of test results available for these new programs yet but the results I do have can been seen in the stats below.

Speaking of stats…

I did something a little different last month.  Instead of promoting my usual Safelist Marketing Tactics squeeze pages I decided to switch things up and start promoting my own Mister Safelist.  The results were pretty dismal.  I received about half as many sign-ups as I did in the previous month.  I’m not sure if that means squeeze pages convert that much better than splash pages or that my new ads just sucked.  I think I am going to work on rewriting my ads today and try it for another month.  If my results are this bad again next month I will consider switching back to promoting my squeeze pages again.

Disclaimer: I submit to 40+ different safelists and viral list builders every day (or as often as they will let me) and spend a good deal of time every day reading emails to earn credits.  I have upgraded memberships at most of these sites which usually allow my ads to be seen by more members and more often.  The stats below are the results of my own marketing methods.  Your results may vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Max Mailer Pro 8817 43.00% 28 0.32%
Your EZ List 1249 57.00% 8 0.64%

Viral List Builder Plus 323 48.00% 2 0.62%
European Safelist 126 38.00% 2 1.59%

Total November sign-ups (including mailers not shown here): 78

Yep, pretty dismal.  At least Max Mailer Pro is still crushing it for me.

I should point out that the stats for and Massive Traffic List were the result of less than 2 weeks of use.  Hopefully we will see those number grow even more after a full month of testing.

That’s all for this month.  Remember, the stats above are the results of my own marketing effort and are provided 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 own ads.  You can get the exact same link tracker that I use from
