The Best Safelists for September 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome back!

I was just digging through the archives of my blog and discovered that I have been sharing my safelist stats here every month since August 2009.

That’s 4 whole years!

That should tell you that one of the keys to success with safelists and viral list builders is consistency!  Sending the occasional ad to one or two safelists every few days isn’t enough.  You need to make your advertising part of your daily routine to keep your ads in front of as many people as possible for as long as possible.  Yes, it takes a lot of effort but the results can be worth it.

Also, make sure you are always using the best safelists!  Look for the admins who are constantly out there driving traffic to their site to bring in new members for you to advertise you.  That’s where the action is and that is where you want to be.

What sites are working best for me?

Last month I tested 40+ safelists and viral list builders while promoting my own site Mister Safelist. I spend time every day clicking email ads for credits and have upgraded memberships at most of the sites which usually allows me to send my ads to more people more often.

Here’s my stats from August 2013:

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
List Jumper 1735 71.00% 10 0.58%
List Adventure 3177 56.00% 10 0.31%

List Nerds 934 63.00% 3 0.32%

Total August sign-ups (including those not listed here): 126

I have provided the stats above to show you what is currently working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to find out which sites are giving you the best results is to track your own ads.  You can get same link tracker I use along with a 30-day trial from trck.me.

The Best Safelists for August 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy August!

Another month and another bunch of mailer stats.

I joined a bunch of new mailers last month. Well, not really a bunch and not really new. I noticed there were a few mailers in List Hoopla that I had not joined before.  I joined Email Traffic List, Click or Return Email Wiz, Social Viral Mailer, and Majestic Money Mailer.  You can check the stats below but so far out of the bunch Email Traffic List appears to be the most effective which aligns with their #3 rank on List Hoopla.

A topic came up on Facebook recently regarding which works better in safelists: splash pages or sales pages.  The consensus was that sales pages work better.  I decided to test it out last month with my own pages.  I rotated 1 splash page for Mister Safelist and the Mister Safelist homepage.  Unfortunately, I didn’t save the stats (sorry).  But the splash page slightly out performed the home page.   It was close though.  My advice is to test it for yourself and see what works best for you.

Stats time!

Here’s how it works.  Every day I submit my ads to 40+ safelists and viral list builders promoting my own Mister Safelist website.  Yes, I am upgraded in most of these sites and spend time every day clicking for credits that allow me to send my ads to as many people as I can as often as I can.  These are my personal stats and are provided only to show what is working best for me.  Your results may vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
List Adventure 3459 59.00% 14 0.40%
List Jumper 1999 68.00% 10 0.50%
Marketing Checkpoint 1170 64.00% 9 0.77%

Total July Sign-ups (including those not listed here): 140

That’s all for this month.  Remember, if you want to know which sites work best for you then you need to track your own ads.  You can get a 30-day trial of the same link tracker service that use from trck.me.

The Best Safelists for July 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to July.

A few notable launches from last month…

Darren Olander and Matt Koshko raised the bar again with the release of Marketing Checkpoint. Marketing Checkpoint is more than just another mailer. It’s a full fledged social networking site that rewards activity with the ability to send your email ads to other members. In addition to the mailer Marketing Checkpoint allows members to post articles and participate in conversations about safelist and other forms of marketing. The Marketing Checkpoint mailer has been open for 2 weeks and so far has been showing a lot of promise.

The other big launch was from Rina Baxter who released Golden Chest Mailer. The site is run on the LFMVM script and has been showing a lot of activity. Worth checking out if you are looking for a new place to send your ads.

And now the stats.

Here’s how it works. Every day I submit ads to 40+ safelists and viral list builders promoting my own safelist Mister Safelist. I am promoting a variety of splash pages and have started mixing up my emails with songs parodies just for fun. I spend time every day reading emails for credits and I am upgraded at most of the sites I use which allows me to send my ads more often and to more people. Your results may vary.

List Adventure 3991 59.00% 12 0.30%

Adchiever 3726 62.00% 4 0.11%

Total June sign-ups (including mailers not listed here): 127

Relatively slow month. I’m in the process of weeding out sites that have been producing poor results and replacing them with some new mailers that I haven’t tried.

Keep in mind that the stats above are the result of my own marketing efforts. I provide these stats to show what is working best for me. What works best for you might be something entirely different. To find out what works best for you track your own stats with trck.me.

The Best Safelists for May 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to another fun filled month of tracking safelists and viral list builder stats.

Hooray!

I like to start with a little bit of news before getting to the stats and the big news from last month was the relaunch of List Adventure.  The old List Adventure has been chugging along for the past few years bringing decent results but it was… boring.  The new List Adventure is now owned by Jon Nastor and Bill Maloney who are well known for creating some of the most active mailers on the planet.  List Adventure has an all new design, some nice social branding features, activity rewards, and even their own version of badges.  It’s a lot of fun and the results have been great!

On to the stats!

Here’s how it works.  Every day (or as often as they will let me) I send out ads to 40+ safelists and viral list builders promoting splash pages for my own Mister Safelist.  No, you won’t see stats for Mister Safelist below but I hear it’s pretty good.  Yes, I am upgraded at most of the mailers and spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to let me send my ads to the maximum number of people.  The stats are the result of my own efforts.  Your results may vary.

 

Max Mailer Pro 5284 29.00% 12 0.23%
Bweeble 1976 52.00% 12 0.61%
100 Percent Mailer 3395 44.00% 11 0.32%

The Best Safelists for April 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to April!

I know. I’m late. I had been under the weather for the past few days but now I am back and ready to share my monthly safelist and viral list builder stats to show which mailers are currently bringing me the best results.

But first, the news…

Wait, there is no news! After all of the big launches in February it seems that March was a pretty quiet month.  I guess once in awhile it’s nice to simply focus on the sites we have now instead of constantly pushing the next big launch.

So let’s get to the stats.

Here’s how it works. Every day I submit my ads to 40+ safelists and viral list builders (or to as many as I can submit to on any given day). I am promoting a series of splash pages that promote my own Mister Safelist website.  Note, you won’t see Mister Safelist in the stats below… but I hear it’s still worth joining.  I do have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists and viral list builders that I use which usually allows me to send my ads to more people and more often.  I also spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads to the maximum number of people.  Your results may vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Adchiever 3842 23.00% 26 0.68%
List Nerds 3596 37.00% 23 0.64%
Puffin Mailer 4015 18.00% 23 0.57%
Viral List Builder Plus 3387 17.00% 12 0.35%
List Jumper 2352 24.00% 11 0.47%
State of the Art Mailer 2737 23.00% 11 0.40%
100 Percent Mailer 3566 27.00% 11 0.31%
Max Mailer Pro 5298 14.00% 11 0.21%
List Joe 946 31.00% 10 1.06%
Viral Nugget 2346 20.00% 9 0.38%
Bweeble 2303 29.00% 8 0.35%
Elite Safelist 2727 13.00% 8 0.29%

List Adventure 1181 21.00% 5 0.42%
European Safelist 1180 16.00% 5 0.42%

Total sign-ups (including those not shown here): 236

Despite the massive launch of List Nerds somehow Adchiever manages to hang on to the #1 spot.  Go Darren!  Puffin Mailer was the other big launch from February and manages to hold it’s own quite nicely as well.

Keep in mind that these stats are only provided to show what is currently working best for me and are the result of my own marketing efforts.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to find out what works best for you is to track your own results.  You can get the same link tracker that I use by visiting trck.me.

The Best Safelists for March 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

It’s March!

It’s been a little bit quiet in the safelist/vlb community over the last few months but not any more.  There were quite a few big launches last month that promise to bring in a lot of new members for us to advertise to.

Clearly the biggest launch last month was List Nerds from the guys at TimTech.  If you don’t know who TimTech is you’ve probably never surfed a traffic exchange.  These guys are arguably the leaders of the TE industry and are responsible for sites like trck.me, AdKreator, Click Track Profit, I Love Hits, StartXchange, and Sweeva (to name a few).  After years of telling them how good safelists and viral list builders are they have finally taken the plunge by launching their own viral list builder.  It’s awesome!  List Nerds was built from the ground up and includes a lot of new features not seen in any other mailers.  The best part about List Nerds is that it’s not a “launch it and forget it” site.  TimTech has the resources to bring in thousands of new members and promises to be active for many years to come.  If you haven’t done it yet definitely join List Nerds and start building your downline now.

Some of the other big launches last month were Puffin Mailer from Dan Moses (4x4Hits), 100PercentMailer from Matthew Graves (TopTierMailer), and Fugitive Traffic Mailer from Jeff Parker (Traffic Fugitive).  All of these mailers are presented by very experienced owners and offer unique twists to make them stand out.  They are all worth joining if for any other reason than to take advantage of all of their recent activity.

Enough about those guys.  Let’s get to my stats…

Here’s how it works.  I am active in 40+ safelists and viral list builders.  I send my ads every day (or as often as they will let me) which promote my own Mister Safelist splash pages.  I am upgraded in most of these sites and spend time every day reading enough emails which allow me to send my ads to the most number of people.  Your results my vary.

Total February sign-ups (including those not listed here): 154

Mister Safelist is not included here because it’s my own site and it wouldn’t make sense for me to promote it there.

List Nerds didn’t make the cut because it just launched a few days ago.  When you consider that the 1 email I sent this week got me 3 new sign-ups it’s safe to say that List Nerds should be near the top of the list next month.

Remember this list is the result of my own marketing efforts and is 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 find out which sites work best for you is to track your own results.  You can get the same link tracker that I use from trck.me.

The Best Safelists for February 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to February!

The big news from last month was the relaunch of Darren Olander’s List Jumper.  With so many big name marketers bringing new members into this site it should come as no surprise that List Jumper is kicking butt.  Crazy click-thru rates and lots of new sign-ups.  It even made it onto my monthly safelist and viral list builder rankings after doing only three mailings.  If you haven’t joined yet List Jumper is definitely the place to be this month.

Ok, let’s get to the stats.

Every day I submit my ads to 40+ safelists and viral list builders promoting splash pages for my website Mister Safelist.  I like to point out that I do have upgraded memberships at most of these sites which allow me to send my ads more often and usually to more people.  I also spend time every day reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads to the maximum number of people.  The stats below are the results of my own marketing efforts and are only provided to show what is working best for me.  Your results may vary.

Not much different from last month.  Congrats to Max Mailer Pro for once again being ranked number one.  The cream always seems to rise to the top.

As I mentioned earlier List Jumper is ranked here after only 3 mailings.  Expect to see it at the top next month with Darren’s other viral list builders Viral Nugget and Adchiever.

That should do it for this month.  Remember that the stats above are provided only to show which safelists and viral list builders are working best for me.  The only way to find out which sites will work best for you is to track your ads.  You can get the same link tracker that I use along with a 30-day free trial from trck.me.

The Best Safelists for January 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy New Year!

I hope your 2012 was as good as mine.  As we move into 2013 safelist and viral list builders are becoming more popular and effective than ever before.  I look forward to seeing what the new year will bring us.

December was a fairly quiet month for new launches.  The only new mailer I joined was John Smiley’s Viral Cash Mailer which so far has been performing well for me.

I did finally get around to updating my own Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook.  No major changes but I did update quite a few of the recommend resources.  If you are an upgraded member with rebranding right you will want to login to the site and update your affiliate links as soon as possible.  If you are not upgraded you will have one more chance to grab the awesome one-time-offer you saw when you first joined.  It’s the first time I have reset the offer in 2 years so grab it while you can.

Time for some stats…

The stats below were gathering from over 40 safelists and viral list builders during the month of December.  I am currently promoting a series of splash pages advertising my own Mister Safelist.  I have upgraded memberships at many of these sites which often allow me to send my ads more often and to more people than free members.  I also spend a considerable amount of time every day reading emails to earn credits.  The stats are the result of my own marketing efforts and are provided to give some insight to what sites are working best for me.  Your results may vary.

I’m glad to see that the numbers are back to where they should be.  I’m not sure what happened with my stats in November (only 78 sign-ups).  At first I thought it may have had something to do with the new ads I was promoting but now I think it had more to do with my tracking service moving to trck.me.

As usual I like to point out that the safelists and viral list builders that are working best for me might not be the ones that work best for you.  The only way to know which safelists and viral list builders are working best for you is to track your own results.  You can get the same link tracker that I use from trck.me.
