The Best Safelists for July 2019

Author: Jerry Iannucci

July is here!

Welcome back everybody and a big hello to all of the new subscribers.

Last month I announced that I would be changing things up by switching from promoting my Mister Safelist splash pages and going back to promoting lead capture pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.

I receive a lot of emails from people about safelist marketing and a lot of people want to know why they don’t get the kind of response to their ads that they expected.  Here’s the deal, you’re not going to have much success promoting generic affiliate pages with giant “Buy Now!” buttons.  Those just don’t work.  You need to promote things that people actually want and most importantly you need to build your list.  Once the viewers are on your list and have gotten to know, like, and trust you then you can try telling them about what you have to offer.

The money is in the list!

I had hoped to prove that his month by comparing the results I obtained from splash pages to lead capture pages.  Unfortunately I just got home from a 12-day road trip across the country and I must admit that I didn’t spend nearly as much time submitting my ads and reading emails for credits as I would have liked.  Still, even though I only did a fraction of the work this month the improvement over last month is still obvious.

Let’s take a look at my partial stats from last month…

I regularly submit my ads to about 40 different safelists and viral list mailers.  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
European Safelist 4031 53.00% 9 0.22%
State of the Art Mailer 2092 60.00% 8 0.38%
Viral URL 93 70.00% 3 3.23%
List Adventure 1324 39.00% 3 0.23%
Trend Mails 1250 41.00% 3 0.24%

Total June Sign-Ups: 44

Again, this is probably less than 3 weeks of data but still twice as many sign-ups overall than last month. I have a very good feeling that if I don’t do as much traveling this month we will see much better results next month.

Don’t forget that these stats are the results of my own marketing efforts and are only provided to show what sites are currently working best for me and my ads.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what will work best for you is to test and track your own ads.  Good luck!
