The Best Safelists for December 2016

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to December!

Well, we are still here.  With everything that has been going on in the industry lately I thought I would have a lot more news to report but everything seems to be relatively quiet.  Most of the bigger sites seem to be adapting well to the change in payment processors and I haven’t noticed any sites shutting down yet.  Traffic seems to be down slightly but sign-ups are still coming in strong.

Now without further ado… here’s some stats from last month.

Just in case this is your first time here I regularly submit my ads to 40-50 different safelists and viral list builders.  I am currently promoting lead capture pages that promote my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  The “Sign Ups” below reflect how many people have chosen to opt-in to my list and verified their email address.  I do have upgraded memberships at a lot of these sites which allow to me to send my ads more often but I do still spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  I don’t use every mailer out there but I do often cycle out less responsive lists to try new ones.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Mailsy 1316 61.00% 11 0.84%
European Safelist 3860 58.00% 6 0.16%
State of the Art Mailer 2342 67.00% 6 0.26%
The Lead Magnet 473 61.00% 6 1.27%
Viral URL 170 82.00% 6 3.53%
Traffic Leads 2 Income VM 1553 47.00% 5 0.32%
List Impact 948 60.00% 5 0.53%
Traffic Bonus 1260 72.00% 5 0.40%
No Marketer Left Behind 582 69.00% 5 0.86%
Fast List Mailer 703 53.00% 4 0.57%
EmailXProfits 2342 71.00% 4 0.17%

Total November Sign-ups: 83

I’m super impressed that Mailsy has been able to hang on to the #1 spot for two months in a row.  Everything else seems to fit in right where I would expect them to.

As usual the stats above are the results of my own marketing efforts and are provided only to show what is currently working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what works best for you is to track your own stats.  You can get the same link tracker that I use when you join
