The Best Safelists for January 2019

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy New Year!

It’s always interesting at this time of the year to look back and see how things have changed in the industry over the last year… even though it may not be that easy to do.  I have my own stats that I can look back to but that’s just a reflection of how safelists have been performing for me.  For me it seems like things have slipped a bit.  I didn’t join as many new mailers, I haven’t felt a lot of excitement from other members, and my own ads which admittedly are probably getting a little stale aren’t performing quite as well as they were at this time last year.

But then today I get a message from a customer that helps to renew my faith.  He says “I just started experiencing success with safelists.  I got three monthly memberships sold and one annual membership sold in the last 4 days.   I’m sure most, if not all, was from MisterSafelist! So, now my belief in safelists is going up.”

That’s fantastic!  I think it also says a lot to emphasis how important it is to focus on what you are promoting rather than just where you are promoting it.  While I think the stats I am sharing below are good they would probably be a lot better if I were promoting something that was in greater demand.  There’s definitely money out there in safelist land to be made, you just need to find the right offer and promote it like crazy!

Here’s my stats from last month…

I typically use anywhere from 40-50 safelists throughout the month.  Obviously I don’t use every mailer out there and I am constantly weeding out ones that do not perform well for me. I am currently using these sites to promote splash pages for my own Mister Safelist. The number of signups received is how many people have joined my site and confirmed their email address through the pages I am advertising. I am upgraded at many of these sites and do spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads. Note that my own Mister Safelist does not appear in these stats because that wouldn’t make any sense.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 3373 58.00% 5 0.15%
Bweeble 2286 50.00% 5 0.22%
European Safelist 6322 52.00% 4 0.06%
Fast List Mailer 818 37.00% 3 0.37%
Viral URL 100 84.00% 2 2.00%
List Avail 1282 48.00% 2 0.16%
Trend Mails 1795 48.00% 2 0.11%

Total December Sign-ups: 35

Don’t forget that the stats above are the result of my own efforts and are only provided to show what is currently working best for me with what I am advertising.  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.
