The Best Safelists for October 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

We’re back!

Apologizes for the lack of stats last month.  I mentioned that I would be taking the opportunity to mix things up and try something new during the month of September and that’s exactly what happened.

Here’s what I did…

Before last month I had been directing all of my safelist traffic towards advertising lead capture pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  Even though the pages converted well I could tell that results had been diminishing over time probably due to the fact that I had been using the same old ads and they were probably starting to get a little stale.

Last month I decided to switch things up and start promoting Mister Safelist (which I own) instead to see what would happen.

To be fair, I may have messed up my tracking code for the first few days which resulted in me not recording any of the sign-ups I received on those days.  I also tried dividing my traffic between 5 different splash pages (not a good idea) to see which ones would convert better (one received twice as many sign-ups as two of the others).  And lets not forget that splash pages, which require people to go to a website and go through the entire registration process, aren’t going to convert as well as a simple lead capture page.

Overall, I am super happy with the results!  A quick glance at the stats from my previous months will show you that the mailers which were converting well for my lead capture pages are the same ones doing well with my splash pages.  I hope to see even better results next month now that I can focus my traffic towards the “good” splash pages and stop promoting the “bad” ones.

Here’s my stats from September…

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 3529 59.00% 9 0.26%
Trend Mails 2232 44.00% 4 0.18%
European Safelist 8386 46.00% 3 0.04%
Traffic Leads 2 Income 2402 38.00% 2 0.08%
TezzerMail 1890 46.00% 2 0.11%
Harmony Mails 1592 41.00% 2 0.13%
Mailsy 579 52.00% 2 0.35%

Total September Sign-ups: 32

As usual I like to point out that the stats above were achieved as a result of my own marketing efforts.  These are the sites that are currently working best for me.  What works best for you and what you are promoting might be something entirely different.  The best way to find out what works best for you is to track your own ads.
