The Best Safelists for January 2020

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy New Year!

Well, we made it to 2020.  It’s safe to say that the last decade was quite spectacular in regards to safelist marketing.  We saw lots of new innovations in the way mailers have let us advertise our sites.  Some great launches and more than a few set backs too.  As we go forward I continue to be most optimistic about the potential for this industry and all of the good things yet to come from it.

Now let’s get to some stats…

I took a bit of a step backwards last month.  I had been advertising a new lead capture page in safelists that was converting quite well at first but began slowing down after it’s second month.  I decided to give the page the month of December off and go back to promoting splash pages for my own Mister Safelist.  Splash pages almost never convert as well as a good lead capture page so naturally there was a drop in sign-ups compared to previous months.  I am going to go back to promoting the lead capture page again this month and see if the stats have improved over last time since hopefully it will appear fresh to new members and those who haven’t seen it.

During the month of December I used my daily safelist mailings to promote splash pages for Mister Safelist.  My stats are generated from using only the credit mailers and do not include login ads or banners ads or anything like that.  I am upgraded at most of these sites and do spend time every day reading emails to earn credits.  I currently submit to 40-50 different safelists.  I don’t use every safelist out there and I am constantly updating that list based on my advertising results.  I do not include my own Mister Safelist here as I prefer to let other reviewers take care of that.  I provide these stats only to show what is currently working best for me.  Your results may vary.

That’s all for now.  Please note that the stats above are provided only to show what is working best for me.  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.
