The Best Safelists for November 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to November!

Maybe it’s just me but lately it feels like activity has been up all across the board.  While it seems like traffic exchange have taken a big hit over the last year safelists and viral mailers only seem to be growing as more and more people are discovering how effective they can be.  What do you guys think?

While the number of new mailer launches is way down from what it used to be there was a very notable launch last month that is worth pointing out.  From Kenny and Sammy Kolijn comes List Mailer Plus.  While it’s probably too early to tell how well it will perform long term right now activity at List Mailer Plus is pretty outstanding with all of my mailing getting 100+ visitors each.  If you haven’t checked it out yet it’s definitely worth joining.

On to the stats…

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 splash pages for my own mailer Mister Safelist which does not appear in the stats below for obvious reasons (everyone there is already a member, silly).  The “Sign Ups” below reflect how many people have chosen to join Mister Safelist though my ads and completed the registration process.  The sign-ups only come from email ads and do not include banners or login ads.  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
State of the Art Mailer 3208 63.00% 5 0.16%
European Safelist 5892 52.00% 4 0.07%
Harmony Mails 1548 41.00% 3 0.19%
TezzerMail 1076 49.00% 3 0.28%
List Impact 403 34.00% 2 0.50%
List Adventure 1833 38.00% 2 0.11%
List Mailer Plus 1219 64.00% 2 0.16%

Total October Sign-ups: 31

My numbers are a little light this month.  For one my tracker went down for a few days, I missed stats for the first two days of the month, and I did a little more traveling without my laptop so I missed a few days of mailings.  Still, the number of sign-ups I brought in were roughly the same as last month so I can’t really complain.

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.
