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.

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.

The Best Safelists for October 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

We’re back!

Apologizes for the lack of stats last month.  I mentioned that I would be taking the opportunity to mix things up and try something new during the month of September and that’s exactly what happened.

Here’s what I did…

Before last month I had been directing all of my safelist traffic towards advertising lead capture pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  Even though the pages converted well I could tell that results had been diminishing over time probably due to the fact that I had been using the same old ads and they were probably starting to get a little stale.

Last month I decided to switch things up and start promoting Mister Safelist (which I own) instead to see what would happen.

To be fair, I may have messed up my tracking code for the first few days which resulted in me not recording any of the sign-ups I received on those days.  I also tried dividing my traffic between 5 different splash pages (not a good idea) to see which ones would convert better (one received twice as many sign-ups as two of the others).  And lets not forget that splash pages, which require people to go to a website and go through the entire registration process, aren’t going to convert as well as a simple lead capture page.

Overall, I am super happy with the results!  A quick glance at the stats from my previous months will show you that the mailers which were converting well for my lead capture pages are the same ones doing well with my splash pages.  I hope to see even better results next month now that I can focus my traffic towards the “good” splash pages and stop promoting the “bad” ones.

Here’s my stats from September…

The Best Safelists for August 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy August!

Well, the bounce back didn’t last as long as I was hoping for.  Activity appeared to be down all across the board for me last month.  Part of it can be attributed to some email problems I had that preventing me from earning as many credits but those were mostly at some of the smaller safelists and probably wouldn’t have had much effect on my final numbers.  Still, I feel like the industry as a whole could use a shot of adrenaline to get back to where we were a year ago.

Here’s what we did last month…

The stats below are the top results from my marketing efforts in July.  I currently use 40-50 different mailers every day (or as often as I can) to promote squeeze pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  The “Signups” below show how many people have confirmed their email address after opting in to my list.  I do have an upgraded membership at most of the mailers which often allows me to send my ads more often to more members.  However, I do spend a lot of time every month reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.

The Best Safelists for July 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to July!

It looks like we’re bouncing back after the terrible stats from the previous month.  Still, considering how long I have been using the same ads it makes sense that sign-ups would naturally decrease over time.  I like to think that by using the same ads I can get a better idea of which safelists are bringing in the most “new” members who haven’t seen my ads before.  For most people I think keeping your ads fresh will help get you better results than what I am doing here.

Let’s take a look at my 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.

The Best Safelists for June 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello again.

Yes, it’s another month and time once again for me to dig into my stats and see which safelist mailers are performing the best and which are not.

May was a very strange month.  Not a lot of activity all across the board.  Safelists that normally produce 10-15 signups did almost nothing for me last month.  It could be that my ads are just getting stale.  I’m curious to hear if anyone else is experiencing the same.

Anyways, here’s my stats from last month.

As usual the stats below came from the 40 or so safelists and viral list mailers that I use to promote my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I use these safelists to advertise squeeze pages for my book.  “Signups” are the people who have chosen to opt-in to my list and have confirmed their email address.  While there are many other safelists out there these are the ones I use.  These stats show only the number of new subscribers received by using the “credit mailer” and do not include and banner or login ads.  I also like to point out that I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  My own Mister Safelist does not appear on this list but it should always be assumed that Mister Safelist is awesome.

The Best Safelists for May 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hidely-Ho Surferenos!

It’s May the 1st and in spite of a few road blocks presented earlier this year safelists and viral mailers continue to be one of the best bang for your buck advertising sources available to us today.

This month’s new featured mailer is “Trend Mails” from Brenton Senegal and Clare Bowen which launched on April 11.  I don’t know what it is but I really love the clean design of this mailer. Probably the best feature though is the reward points which can be traded in for extra credits, login ads, and even raffle tickets to win cash prizes.  I don’t have a full month of test results to share yet but so far my last few mailings there have averaged about 60 visitors each with a CTR of about 7%.  If you are interested in trying something new then Trend Mails is definitely worth checking out.

Ok, let’s get to the rest of the stats…

During the month of April I used my daily safelist mailings to promote squeeze pages for my book Safelist Marketing Tactics.  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 30-40 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.

List Avail 1178 56.00% 3 0.25%

Total April Sign-ups: 60

Not a bad month.  I did miss a few mailings towards the end thanks to a last minute camping trip but I am confident recommending any of these mailers (plus Mister Safelist) to anyone looking for good cheap advertising for their business.

Happy Easter Fools Day!

I guess the big news this month is that Payza has once again screwed their US customers after being hit with a lawsuit by the US Dept of Justice for money laundering.  All US customers lost access to their funds and since many safelists were relying on Payza after losing their PayPal accounts last year this hits pretty hard for some.  Thankfully it seems that most businesses are bouncing back and finding other alternative payment processors but it’s definitely not as easy as it once was.  You can read more about the Payza story here.

On a brighter note State of the Art Mailer is celebrating their 8 year anniversary this month with a cool referral contest.  They are starting with a $500 prize pool and will match 100% of any new commissions you earn until the prize pool is exhausted.  I always get great results with this mailer and more of my referrals upgrade here than anywhere else.  Should be a good month all around.

On to my stats…

If you’re new here I will explain how this works.  During the past month I used about 40 different safelists to promote lead capture pages for my Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook.  The number of “Signups” reflects how many people have subscribed to my list from the pages I am promoting and verified their email address.  These sign-ups all come from using the credit mailer on the safelists and do not include traffic that came from banner ads, text ads, etc.  I do have upgraded memberships at most of these sites and do spend time every day clicking emails for credits to send my ads to as many people as possible.  Also I don’t include my own Mister Safelist in my testing because the results would be so good that it would make all of the other mailers look bad. lol.

The Best Safelists for March 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome back!

Today is March 1st and that means it’s time to dig out some marketing stats and see what’s hot in safelist land.

If this is the first time you have turned your computer on in the last two weeks you will probably be excited to learn that Tony Tezak and Robert Puddy have opened a new mailer called “TezzerMail“.  Since TezzerMail launched in the middle of the month I decided not to include it in my usual stats below.  Instead I used it to promote a splash page for my own Mister Safelist which doesn’t usually convert as well as the squeeze pages I normally promote.

In the two weeks that I have been using TezzerMail I have gotten 1,690 hits and received 18 new members to my site.  That’s pretty fantastic!  I won’t even mention how much I have earned in commissions as it seems most of the people joining have been taking advantage of the discounted upgraded memberships.

If you still haven’t joined TezzerMail I highly recommend it!

Now let’s move on to the rest of the stats…

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 lead capture pages for my own Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook. The number of signups received is how many people have subscribed to my list and confirmed their email address through the pages I am adverting. 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 would be weird.

The Best Safelists for January 2018

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy New Year!

It’s 2018 and we are still going strong with my safelist stats showing you some of the best places to advertise online every month.

I guess this is the point where I look back on 2017 and talk about all the great things that happened in the industry but to be honest it was kind of a meh year.  There were a few decent launches but not a whole lot of innovation and overall it was not nearly as exciting as some past years.

The “Mailer of the Year” award would most likely be a tie between “State of the Art Mailer” and “European Safelist“.  Those two sites combined brought in over 200 new subscribers to my list in 2017.  I will name the runner up as “Viral URL” which brought in a ton of new subscribers even though I still don’t understand how that site works.  I will also give an honorable mention to “Mailsy” which launched strong at the end of 2016 but is still producing great results today.

How were my stats from last month?  Let’s take a look.

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 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.

The Best Safelists for December 2017

Hello again!

Can you believe it’s the end of 2017 already?  Considering where we were at this point last year (with a certain payment processor going on the warpath) it’s great to see how the industry has adapted and how many of the top sites are still going strong today.

With that said let’s get into my end of the year safelist stats.

The stats below come from the 40-50 safelists and viral list mailers that I use every day to promote my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I use these safelists to advertise squeeze pages for my book.  “Signups” are people who have chosen to opt-in to my list and have confirmed their email address.  While there are many other safelists out there these are the ones I use.  These stats show only the number of new subscribers received by using the “credit mailer” and do not include things like banner ads or login ads.  I like to point out that I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  My own Mister Safelist does not appear on this list because that would be weird.
