The Best Safelists for April 2017

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy April Fools Day!

No pranks here.  Safelists are still great no matter what day it is.

A new mailer is being launched this week by Matthew Graves.  Matt is well known for coming up with innovative ideas to add to his sites and I have no doubt that this will be any different.  The new site is called Your Viral Mailer and the mailer function opens on Monday.  Click Here to check it out.

Here’s a rant… this week I decided to clean up my list of active mailers and join some new safelists that I have seen being promoted.  Now I know Gmail is the preferred email provider for using safelists but not everyone uses it.  I have my own domain names that come with email addresses (I use for most of my emails) and I know there are tons of people using addresses other than Gmail.  So when I tried to join a new safelist and was told I was not allowed to join because I didn’t use Gmail I was confused.  I know Gmail is more convenient for site owners but is it really worth it when you are turning away potential customers?  Even if only 10% (I know it’s much higher) of marketers use a different email that means for every 1,000 people who want to join your site you are turning away 100 people.  Now imagine if you are an affiliate and 10% of your referrals were turned away while they were trying to join.  Is it me or is that just nuts?

I needed to get that off my chest.  Thanks for listening.

How about some stats?

As usual the stats below come from the 30-40 safelists and viral list mailers that I have been using every day to promote lead capture pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics. Yes, I am upgraded at most of these sites but I still spend time every day reading emails and clicking for credits to try and get my ads seen as often as possible.  The “Signups” represent how many people entered their name and email address on my page and then verified their address.  Note that my own Mister Safelist does not appear in these stats because that would be weird.  These stats are provided only to show what is currently working best for me.
