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%
Bweeble 1395 65.00% 4 0.29%
Instant Viral Mailer 836 40.00% 3 0.36%
List Punk 1821 49.00% 3 0.16%
State of the Art Mailer 2631 62.00% 3 0.11%
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
