The Best Safelists for June 2013

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello June!

It feels like safelists and mailers have been getting a lot more attention recently.  Even compared to just a year ago.  It seems that more and more people are finding out what a powerful advertising medium they can be and I couldn’t be happier.

Last month saw the release of another new viral list builder called List Viral.  It was launched by Matt Baker with a little help from the guys at TimTech.  If you are a member of List Nerds you will notice the similiarities right away.  The design is simple and proves that you don’t need to have a million complicated options to get good results from a mailer.

The other big launch was the new social networking site from Darren Olander and Matt Koskho called Marketing Checkpoint.  This one is a little more than your typical mailer.  It’s a full fledged social networking site.  Sorta like Facebook for Internet marketers.  Members can earn “activity points” by being active within the community and those points can then be used to send ads through the mailer.  The mailer is still offline until June 14 so that they can build up their membership first.  It’s still definitely worth joining Marketing Checkpoint now.  There are some great discussions going on about safelist marketing and it’s a great place to get know your fellow Internet marketers in a social environment.

Ok, on to the stats…

Here’s how it works.  Every day I submit my ads to 40+ safelists and viral list builders promoting splash pages for my own Mister Safelist.  I am upgraded at most of these sites which typically allows me to send my ads more often than free members.  I also spend time every day reading emails for credits which allow me to send my ads to as many people as possible.  The stats below are the result of my own marketing efforts and your results will probably vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Adchiever 4020 65.00% 13 0.32%
Viral List Builder Plus 3910 58.00% 12 0.31%

Elite Safelist 2508 57.00% 4 0.16%

Total May sign-ups (including those not shown above): 146

A bit of a light month for me.  I think I have identified a few problems with my campaigns and will try focusing on my higher converting splash pages to see if that helps to increase my results for next month.

That’s it for this month.

Don’t forget to join Marketing Checkpoint if you haven’t already and come get involved in the safelists discussions.  We would love to hear your thoughts.

As always the stats above are only provided to show what is working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know for sure is to track your own results.  You can get the same link tracker I use 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.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Adchiever 3865 27.00% 16 0.41%
Max Mailer Pro 5441 17.00% 16 0.29%
Viral Nugget 2190 28.00% 10 0.46%
Massive Traffic List 617 23.00% 9 1.46%
List Joe 941 40.00% 7 0.74%
Safelists.com 1624 24.00% 6 0.37%
State of the Art Mailer 2726 29.00% 6 0.22%
Bweeble 2427 37.00% 5 0.21%
Viral Cash Mailer 1190 18.00% 5 0.42%
AdTactics 798 20.00% 5 0.62%
List Bonus 1697 31.00% 4 0.24%
European Safelist 917 21.00% 4 0.44%
Fast Cash Mailer 401 27.00% 4 1.00%
List Shock 1313 24.00% 4 0.30%
The Lead Magnet 970 25.00% 4 0.41%
Mail Our List 1172 22.00% 4 0.34%
List Outbreak 738 21.00% 4 0.54%
TopTierMailer 1462 25.00% 4 0.27%

Total Decembers sign-ups from all safelists and viral list builders (including those not shown here): 148

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.

Safelist Review – TopTierMailer

Author: Jerry Iannucci

TopTierMailer is the new viral list builder from Matthew Graves who is the creator of such popular traffic exchanges as WebBizInsider and TopTierTraffic.

TopTierMailer launched quietly on April 5, 2012.  I understand there were no JV partners for this launch but word has spread quickly.  It’s now 2 weeks later and TopTierMailer is fast approaching 3,000 members.

TopTierMailer is running on a similar version of the script used to run TopTierTraffic.  If you are a member of TopTierTraffic you will feel right at home here.  Because this is a unique script TopTierMailer offers some cool features not seen on any other safelist.

One of the first things you will notice is that TopTierMailer offers members an option to view emails right on the website.

TopTierMailer

This is great for people who are new to safelist marketing and aren’t ready to manage an inbox filled with daily emails.

The mailer also offers a unique feature not seen on other viral list builders.

Free Members can send an email to as many members as they have credits every 7 days. Premium Members are set for every 3 days. However, you dont have to send a single email to all the members. For example, if you had 2,000 credits, then you can send 1,000 members an email promoting Website A and the other 1,000 members a completely different email promoting Website B. You are not limited to sending a single email every 3 or 7 days. The limit is on how many emails you can send to EACH MEMBER every 3 or 7 days.

This means if you have multiple sites that you want to promote or if you want to split test different ads you don’t need to wait until your next mailing time to send multiple emails.

Another cool feature at TopTierMailer allows you transfer in your credits earned from Matthew’s traffic exchanges.  I love this feature because if I have read all of my emails and I still want more credits I can just head over to WebBizInsider and surf for more.

TopTierMailer is free but upgraded members also get these benefits:

  • 2,500 Weekly Mailing Credits
  • Get Double Credits for Reading Emails
  • Earn Credits Faster By Reading Emails in Digest Form (1 Email Per Day with all emails in it)
  • Digest Form Email Avoids Inbox Overload (1 Email Per Day with all emails in it)
  • Send Emails Every 3 Days (Free Is 7 Days)
  • Unlimited Banner Impressions (No Credits Needed)
  • Random Referrals Added To Your Downline (Yearly Membership Only)
  • Earn 50% Commissions (Free Is 10%)

The yearly membership is available immediately after joining.

While TopTierMailer has been online for about 2 weeks the mailer just opened a few days ago.  I sent my first email yesterday.  So far I have received 112 hits and 4 sign-ups.  Not bad for my first email.  I will continue to track my results and will be sharing my stats on my blog every month.

With nearly 3,000 members and 100 new ones joining every day TopTierMailer is definitely the place to be right now.  That’s a lot of active members and the perfect audience to be advertising to.  To say that I am excited for the future of TopTierMailer would be an understatement.  I am definitely looking forward to everything TopTierMailer has to offer.

The Best Safelists for June 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello fellow Internet marketers!

Once again it is time to dig out my stats and show you what safelists and viral list builders have been working best for me during the previous month.

But first, the news…

Actually, there isn’t much news this month.  This biggest thing happening right now is yesterday’s launch of Sean Supplee’s new viral list builder called “List Ablaze“.  The site is running on the same script as many of the other recent viral list builders but with a few custom modifications that should help it outperform some of it’s competitors.

Obviously I don’t have any stats to share for List Ablaze this month but knowing Sean and how well these scripts perform I would definitely recommend getting your ads in there while the site is still hot.

Ok, time for the stats…

I always have to preface this by saying that these are my stats from advertising my sites.  I am promoting a squeeze page and tracking the number of new sign-ups to my list.  I am also upgraded on most of these sites which often allows me to send more emails than free members.

Here’s the top 10 list…


Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Viral URL 102 86.00% 46 45.10%
List Bonus 1785 75.00% 36 2.02%
The Lead Magnet 1192 65.00% 26 2.18%
StateoftheArtMailer 3619 76.00% 20 0.55%
Quick List Profits 553 68.00% 16 2.89%
List Effects 493 66.00% 11 2.23%
AdsolutionLine 2053 44.00% 9 0.44%
AdTactics 1401 68.00% 9 0.64%
AdsolutionLine 393 75.00% 9 2.29%
Elevated Power List 417 56.00% 8 1.92%

Total sign-ups for May from safelists and viral list builders: 245

Another excellent month.  No big surprises.  My gold membership at Viral URL continues to dominate.  List Bonus, The Lead Magnet, and State of the Art Mailer also remain right at the top of the list where they have been for awhile.  If you’re not already a member of any of these they are definitely worth your time.

As I stated earlier these are my stats from advertising my squeeze pages.  Your results may differ but you will never know unless you are tracking your ads.  Need a link tracker?  You can get the same one that I am using for free from TE Toolbox.

Happy Saturday!

I just wanted to post a quick note about a few of the changes I just made with the Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook and website.

As you know things in this industry moves very fast.  I hate the idea of having my books floating around out there with outdated information.  So maybe twice a year I like to go back and make revisions to keep the content fresh.

I’ve added two new mailers to the list of recommended sites.  If you have been following my monthly safelist stats it should come as no surprise which two they are.

The new sites are:
Adchiever
State of the Art Mailer

I’ve also added my new ebook:
Autoresponder Profit System

If you are an upgraded member of the SMT website please login and add your referral links to the rebrander to make sure you have the most recent edition.

http://safelisttactics.com/login.php

I’ve also added two new video splash pages that you can use to promote the SMT website.

You may have seen my “3 Stooges” and “Video of Me Talking” splash pages  before.  I made these pages for my own personal use but after getting many requests I have now added them to the members area.

These pages convert like crazy!

If you would like to promote them yourself here are the links:

http://www.safelisttactics.com/splash5.php?rid=(YourRefID)
http://www.safelisttactics.com/splash6.php?rid=(YourRefID)

Free members earn 25% commission on all upgrades and OTO purchases.

There is a complete list of promo tools available inside the SMT members area.

http://safelistactics.com/login.php

That’s all for now.

If there is anything you would like to see added in future updates feel free to let me know.

Last week I sent out a mailing to my list on behalf of Brett Phillips and John Guanzon about the relaunch of their program TEReports.

In addition to adding two new products and twice as may new squeeze pages for upgraded members TERports now offers a squeeze page for free members.  This is a great way for free members to start building their list using free traffic exchange programs.

One of my subscribers replied to my email with a questions about using traffic exchanges and squeeze pages.  I thought I would share my response here.

Hi Jerry. I have been receiving your emails for some time now. I like the info but I need some clarity. How do I get on the traffic exchanges, and how will anyone find my squeeze page? I have a network marketing business and I would like to reach lots and lots of people, but I am not sure how. How can traffic exchanges and squeeze pages help me?

Hey Paul.

That’s a pretty big question but i’ll do my best to reply here.

First, to get on the traffic exchanges just pick one and join it.

You can start with any of these:
http://affiliatefunnel.com/top5te.php?rid=6698

They are all free but if you upgrade to a paid membership you’ll get more traffic for less work.

There are lots of guides out there about using traffic exchange but most of it is pretty self-explanatory:

1. Visit other member sites to earn credits
2. Spend your credits to show your site to other members

Using a traffic exchange is a great way to expose your squeeze page to thousands of new people.

It is important to remember though that the traffic you get from traffic exchanges is inscentivized (I know, big word).  Basically, that means that most people are only coming to your site because they want to earn credits to show their own site.  Your squeeze page should directly target these people and hopefully be interesting enough to stand out in the crowd.

It helps to have your own product to give away as an incentive for surfers to subscribe to your list.  If you don’t have your own product then you can use any of the free ones provided by TERports.  They all work really well in traffic exchanges.

Once you start building your list you have the opportunity to build a relationship with the people on your list and to potentially sell to them over and over again.

That’s sorta the simplified version but hopefully you get the gist of it.

If you need more details… just ask!

Safelist Experts Tell All

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Saturday!

Can you believe that anybody would want to interview me?

It’s true.  In fact I didn’t quite know how to react when John Karnish contacted me a few months ago with the idea of interviewing me for his new book he was writing about safelist marketing.

Of course I agreed.

And now you can read that interview at Safelist Experts Tell All.

Let me tell you a little about how this all came about because I think this is really great.

I’ve talked before about how important it is for you to have your own product but I can understand that not everyone out there is the greatest writer.  I’ve mentioned that one way to get around this is to simply do an interview with someone who knows more about a subject than you do.

And that’s exactly what John did.

John contacted myself and three other big name safelist marketers and asked us the important questions that everybody needs to know about marketing with safelists.

The result is that John now has his own ebook jam packed with quality content and he only had to write about one page himself.

Pretty clever, right?

What’s also great is that John is giving everyone who signs up for his free ebook access to his affiliate program that pays 75% commissions on the one-time-offer.

And let me just say something about this one-time-offer.  I think John is nuts!
This thing is waaaay underpriced.  Even if you don’t buy it yourself (and you
should because it’s a steal) you’ll have no problem converting any free members you send to his site.

So, what are you waiting for?

It’s really good!

The Best Safelists – October Stats

Author: Jerry Iannucci

It’s November 1st and that means it’s time to check my stats to find the best places to advertise.  I decided to change the title this month to focus on safelists because let’s face it, that’s mostly where I am advertising.

As usual, I am advertising my splash pages from Safelist Marketing Tactics.

I’ve been looking forward to checking out last month’s stats for awhile.  Partially because I have been testing out some new safelists and I wanted to see how they stack up against the competition.

I just pulled up my stats a little while ago and I have to say that the results were very poor.  Looks like i’ve had a huge drop in the number of sign-ups i’ve been receiving from safelists all across the board.  I think this means it’s time to get off my butt and start testing out some new splash pages.

I did find a new safelist that is producing better than expected results for me.  Smart Safelist currently has less than 2000 members but is giving me excellent results even as a free member.  They seem to have a good grasp of just giving out just enough credits to keep people coming back and reading their emails every day.  Worth checking out.

Last month I mentioned that I had started seeing a drop in the response from AdTactics since they changed to a 3-day mailer (send 1 email every 3 days) for free members.  I spoke with the owner about it and he said I was the only person who was having a problem with it and that others had seen increased response.  They are trying it out now as a 2-day mailer.  My sign-ups went up last month but only slightly.  We’ll have to see how it works after I get my new splash page up and running.

That’s all the news.  Let’s see who’s on top this month.

ViralAdStore – Hits: 1,811  Clicks: 89  Sign-ups: 20
List Auction – Hits: 1,354  Clicks: 90  Sign-ups: 17
List Joe – Hits: 1,766  Clicks: 111  Sign-ups: 15
Got Safelist? – Hits: 2,942 Clicks: 47  Sign-ups: 7
Elite Safelist – Hits: 1,746  Clicks: 32  Sign-ups: 7

It’s nice to see Elite Safelist back on top again.  Very surprised to see Got Safelist? only got me 7 sign-ups though when I had 17 last month.  That’s with an upgraded membership too.  Not very good.

I guess that’s about it for this month.  Hopefully I will find the time to make some new splash pages after my new website launches on Wednesday.  Oh, did I mention I am launching a new website on Wednesday?  I don’t want to “give away” too much info yet.  You’ll just have to wait and see for yourself.
