The Best Safelists for November 2016

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to November!

No major launches to report from last month but there has been a good amount of drama lately.

If you haven’t heard the news a certain popular payment processor (i’m too afraid to even invoke their name here) has gone on the warpath and started suspending the owners of popular traffic exchanges and safelists.  Since most owners depend of this service to accept payments for their business this could have devastating long term effects on our industry.

I’ve taken some steps on my sites to try and keep out of their crosshairs but only time will tell what is going to happen next.

In the mean time I still have plenty of stats to share with you this month.

The stats below come from the 40-50 safelists and viral list mailers that I use every day to promote my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I use these safelists to advertise squeeze pages for my book.  “Signups” are people who have chosen to opt-in to my list and have confirmed their email address.  While there are many other safelists out there these are the ones I use.  These stats show only the number of new subscribers received by using the “credit mailer” and do not include and banner or login ads.  I like to point out that I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  My own Mister Safelist does not appear on this list because that would be weird.

Much better than the last few months.

Mailsy is the new site from Brian Zens that launched at the end of September.

Please note that the stats above are provided only to show which mailers are currently working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what sites work best for you is to track your own ads.  You can get the same link tracker that I use by signing up for
