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%
Fast Cash Mailer 752 21.00% 6 0.80%
Viral Cash Mailer 1461 10.00% 6 0.41%
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 November 2012

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to November!

This is the place to find out what is going on in the world of safelists and viral list builders and see which sites are bringing me the best results.

The big news last month was the relaunch of List Joe.

List Joe was the biggest and baddest viral list builders for many years.  Earlier this year List Joe suffered a major database loss and had to be shut down.  Now it’s back with a brand new design and all new features.  So far my results with the new List Joe have been great.  You can view my stats below.  If you are not a member of the new List Joe yet please sign-up now.

That’s about it for news.  Let’s get to the stats…

Here’s how it works.  Every day I promote a series of lead capture pages to 30-40 different safelists and viral list builders.  My lead capture pages promote my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I use a free link tracking service (TE Toolbox) to keep track of which safelists and viral list builders are bringing me the most sign-ups.  I then share those stats here on my blog every month.

Please keep in mind that these stats are the results of my own marketing efforts.  I have upgraded memberships on most safelists and viral list builders which usually allow me to send my ads more often and to more people.  Your results may vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 3144 63.00% 16 0.51%
List Joe 1604 72.00% 15 0.94%
Viral URL 55 89.00% 15 27.27%
List Bonus 1881 63.00% 14 0.74%
List Outbreak 807 49.00% 12 1.49%
Viral Nugget 2703 58.00% 12 0.44%
List Adventure 1486 47.00% 10 0.67%
Bweeble 3036 68.00% 10 0.33%
Adchiever 3678 56.00% 9 0.24%
Viral Ad Store 1134 54.00% 4 0.35%
TopTierMailer 1179 58.00% 4 0.34%
European Safelist 872 40.00% 3 0.34%
Viral Mail Profits 277 68.00% 3 1.08%
List Surfing 746 66.00% 3 0.40%
Viral List Builder Plus 2702 49.00% 3 0.11%

Total October sign-ups from all safelists and viral list builders (including those not listed here): 152

Next month I am going to switch things up and start promoting my own safelist (Mister Safelist) instead of my ebook.  We’ll see if that brings my stats up or knocks them back down.

Remember the stats I have listed above are provided to show which safelists and viral list builders are currently working best for me.  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 ads.  You can get the same link tracker that I use to track my ads from TE Toolbox.

Keeping Track of Your TE Commissions

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and Happy Sunday!

About a year and a half ago I did a video walk through of a new site at the time called TE Command Post.

You can check out the video here:
http://www.getrichwithjerry.com/video-review-of-my-te-command-post/

TE Command Post continues to be one of the most useful services for traffic exchanges surfers that I have ever used.  When you are a member of dozens of traffic exchanges like I am it becomes extremely helpful to keep track of all of your credits on all of your traffic exchanges with just one click.

This past week TE Command Post added a new feature which makes it an even more invaluable tool… the ability to track all of the commissions traffic exchanges owe you.

Check this out:http://www.mytecommandpost.comAccording to TE Command Post I had over $400 in commissions owed to me that I had not yet received.  Now some of these sites do pay monthly and I just have not been paid yet this month.  List Surfing is a good example of this.  But many other sites require you to login and manually request your commissions be paid.  If you don’t know you are owed commissions you never get paid.

Just another reason why I believe TE Command Post is an essential tool for all Internet marketers who are promoting with traffic exchanges.

If you are not already a member then sign-up, select your traffic exchanges, and find out immediately who owes you money.

The Best Safelists for November 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to November!

It’s a new month and that means it’s time to dig out my safelist and viral list builder advertising stats from last months and share with you what sites are currently bringing me the best results.

But first… the news!

The biggest launch from last month was the new release of a unique viral list builder from my good friend John Bell.  It’s called Viral List Builder Plus.  I don’t have any stats to share yet but so far I am really enjoying this site.  One of the unique features displays the open rate of all emails sent through the site.  Members are receiving between 17% and 20% open rate for all emails sent through the system.  Not bad.  I will definitely keep working this one and share my stats with you next month.

Now for the stats.

If you’ve never been here before this is how it works.  Every month I promote a series of lead capture pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics on 30-40 different safelists and viral list builders.  I try to view as many emails from other members as I can to earn enough credits to send my emails as often as possible.  I use a free link tracker to find out how my hits my pages received from each site as well as how many new subscribers I received.  I do have upgraded memberships at most of these sites which usually allows me to send my ads more often.  My ads are also very targeted to other safelist and viral list builder members which help to increase my results.  Your results my vary.


Hits Unique Signups Ratio
List Bonus 1355 82.00% 19 1.40%
The Lead Magnet 1174 61.00% 17 1.49%
State of the Art Mailer 4130 77.00% 14 0.39%
List Adventure 912 60.00% 12 1.32%
Adchiever 1704 69.00% 11 0.65%
Viral URL 34 81.00% 10 29.41%
AdsolutionLine 2734 42.00% 9 0.33%
Elite Safelist 2612 38.00% 9 0.34%
Ultimate Profit List 1048 73.00% 9 0.86%
Instant List Empire 340 66.00% 8 2.35%
List Joe 1576 75.00% 8 0.51%
Quick List Profits 505 64.00% 8 1.58%
List Effects 355 61.00% 7 1.97%
Adtactics 1788 40.00% 6 0.34%
Global Safelist 1411 38.00% 5 0.35%

Not a bad month.  The top 3 sites continue to dominate as they have for the past few months.  I love seeing List Adventure in the Top 5.  So many VLBs have come and gone over the last year that it’s great to see this site still competing so well.  If you are not yet a member of any of these I highly recommend joining now.

That’s it for this month.  I will be keeping a close eye on Viral List Builder Plus over the next few weeks and hopefully have some good stats to share with you next month.

Keep in mind that these stats are the result of my own marketing efforts and may not match your own.  These are only provided as a guide to show you what is currently working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different but you will never know unless you are tracking your ads.  You can get the same free link tracker that I use when you join TE Toolbox.

The Best Safelists for August 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello!

Welcome to my August 2011 report of the current best safelists and viral list builders.

If this is your first time here you are in for a treat.  Every month I share my personal marketing stats from all of the safelists and viral list builders I used during the previous month.  This should help you get a better idea of what safelists and viral list builders are producing the best results going into the new month.  I also like to share any news or announcements of big launches that recently happened.

Last month there were no new safelists or viral list builder launches to report.  Sorry.

There was a new feature released at State of the Art Mailer worth mentioning called “Time Bonus Ads”.  I wrote about this in a previous post that you can find here.  To be honest I totally forgot all about this new feature since I last wrote about it… but that’s how it works!  You earn credits to show your banner ads across their network just doing the stuff you are already doing.  Since I last checked it I have had my banner shown 23,198 times and had 30 click-thrus to my sites.  Not bad for not having to do any extra work.

Ok, time for the stats…

Here’s how it works.  I promote several squeeze pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics on all of the top safelists and viral list builders.  I then track how many hits I received from each mailer and how many new subscribers they brought to my list.  I do have have upgraded memberships on most of these mailers which allow to me send my ads more often.  I also spend time every day clicking email ads for credits that allow me to send my emails to as many members as I can as often as I can.  This list is only intended as a guideline and your results my vary.


Hits Unique Conv. Ratio
List Bonus 1657 84.00% 18 1.09%
The Lead Magnet 1189 61.00% 17 1.43%
Instant List Empire 379 67.00% 12 3.17%
Viral URL 32 84.00% 11 34.38%
List Adventure 937 61.00% 11 1.17%
Adchiever 1629 70.00% 10 0.61%
State of the Art Mailer 4397 77.00% 9 0.20%
Instant Profit List 382 65.00% 8 2.09%
Ultimate Profit List 1405 76.00% 8 0.57%
Quick List Profits 445 69.00% 7 1.57%
List Joe 1880 76.00% 7 0.37%
AdsolutionLine 2842 43.00% 6 0.21%
List Effects 425 59.00% 6 1.41%
Viral Ad Store 584 65.00% 5 0.86%
Downline Builders Direct 338 55.00% 4 1.18%

Total July sign-ups from all mailers (including those not listed here): 160

Not too much has changed from last month.   The only exception is Instant List Empire which has made a pretty big jump from last month.  I like this mailer because as an upgraded member I only receive maybe one or two emails a day.  That makes earning extra credits a little tricky but it also means every time I send out an ad it gets noticed.

That’s it!  Don’t forget that these are my own personal tracking stats from promoting my own pages.  Your results may vary but you will never know unless you are tracking your own ads.  You can get the same tracking service I use for free from TE Toolbox.

Now get out there and start sending your ads!

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.

Hello and Happy Monday!

I had a pretty rough weekend and I am feeling a bit under the weather today but I wanted to give a quick shout out for everybody who came out on Friday and listened to my live interview with Sterling Valentine as part of his List Laser 30 Day Listbuilding Challenge.

In case you missed it… here it is!

It was a little nerve wracking but I think it went well.  Somehow Sterling managed to get me talking for a full hour which not many other people have been able to do.  Hopefully I dropped a few good nuggets in there too.

I’m not sure if I will ever get fully used to doing these interviews but this was a topic that I am very passionate about and I hope some people found it helpful.

If you have not yet started building your list Sterling Valentine’s List Laser program is a great place to start.  Not only is it free to join but with 30 days of expert training you can’t really go wrong .

The Best Safelists for February 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to February!

I don’t know about you but it’s weather like this makes me glad I work from home.

I have some big changes to announce this month but first I want to shine a light on one of the better safelist related launches that took place last month.  It’s a site called “The Traffic Button” and it was released by Mike Purvis who is best known for creating The List Auction, Viral Ad Store, and Traffic ZipperThe Traffic Button is a series of free training modules which will show you how to get the most out of advertising with free viral list builders (such as the ones Mike owns).  There is definitely some good content here and well worth the time to check it out.

I also released a new edition of my popular ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  Nothing major.  I just wanted to make sure the content is current and still relevant to marketing with safelist and viral list builders into 2011.

Ok, the big announcement… my tracking script died!

Yep.  I was doing some routine maintenance on the database and for some unknown reason the script will now no longer recognize the tracking cookies used to tell me when people click my splash page and when they join my program.

So now I am tracking all of my links exclusively with TE Toolbox!

The bad news is that I lost all of my data from before January 13th.

The good news is that the new trackers are working great.

Since I made such a major change in the way I track my links I also decided to take this opportunity to make some changes in the way I have been promoting.  Before I was promoting splash pages and tracking how many people clicked my ads and how many people ultimately joined my program.

I decided that instead of promoting the usual splash pages that I am now going to promote a squeeze page instead and track how many people subscribe to my list through that page.

Here is the page I am promoting:
http://safelisttactics.com/squeeze/?rid=1

That page is available to all upgraded members of Safelist Marketing Tactics if you would also like to use it to build your list.

The results?

Since January 13th I have tracked 208 new subscribers to my list from promoting that page exclusively through safelists and viral list builders.

Wow!

Which safelists and viral list builders worked the best?

As always I would like to point out that these stats are a result of my own marketing efforts and your results may differ.  I also have upgraded memberships on most of the safelists and viral list builders listed below which normally produces better results.

Enough of that… here’s what worked best for me:

Hits Unique Subscribers Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 3,407 71% 35 1.03%
Adchiever 1,635 70% 20 1.22%
Quick List Profits 611 65% 18 2.95%
Global Safelist 1,191 38% 14 1.18%
Viral Ad Store 694 67% 12 1.73%
List Effects 405 65% 11 2.72%
The Lead Magnet 660 68% 10 1.52%
AdTactics 2,667 29% 9 0.34%
The List Auction 543 65% 9 1.66%
AdsolutionLine 1,845 42% 7 0.38%
Elite Safelist 1,695 38% 7 0.41%

Not bad for only half of January.

As usual, if you are not already a member of State of the Art Mailer… oh boy are you missing out!

Adchiever also continues to rock.

I am really impressed this month by Quick List Profits.  While this is still one of the newer viral list builders the conversion ratio is the best on the list.  I don’t know what Kym Robinson is doing over there but it’s definitely working!

That’s all for this month.

Keep your eyes peeled on Feb 13th for a brand new viral list builder launch that is definitely going to make some big waves.  Also be back here next month to see what kind of results I get from a full month of building my list with safelists and viral list builders.

Autoresponder Profit System is LIVE!

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and Happy Monday!

Big, big, BIG news today…

I have a new ebook and website!

Yep, after nearly a year of working on it today I am finally releasing my new ebook called “Autoresponder Profit System“.

You can check out the website here:

http://www.autoresponderprofitsystem.com

Like all of my other ebooks this one is free and there is an affiliate program to go along with it so that you can make some extra cash by giving it away.  Of course there is also the option to rebrand the book with your own affiliate links which will allow you to make even more money when people sign-up for the programs recommended in the book.

What’s it about?

Autoresponder Profit System is my “list building” ebook but with my own little slant on the subject.  I actually created it for people who may already have an autoresponder but might not know how to use it to build a list.  More importantly, it will show people how to “profit” from their autoresponder either by using it to promote various affiliate programs or by bringing more members into their primary business that they are already promoting.

Autoresponder Profit System also makes a great giveaway for people who already have downline members in an autoresponder.  So giving them this book greatly improves the chances that they will actually start making some money with their autoresponder thus keeping them in your downline every month.

I just checked my site stats.  The site launched an hour ago and already there are close to 200 members!  Whee!

I suspect I am going to be a little busy for the rest of the day but I would love to read your comments about the book.  Please click on the link below to download your free copy of Autoresponder Profit System and let me know what you think!

Adchiever Begins Pre-Launch Today

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I just wanted to write a quick post to let you know about a brand new viral list builder that is being launched by my good friend Darren Olander called Adchiever.

Here’s the link:
http://adchiever.com/?a=69

Yes, I know there’s been a lot of new viral list builders launching lately but Adchiever is different.  Darren has put together a mailer that actually rewards you for being an active member.  This is like nothing else I have seen before and if Adchiever works the way I think it will you should expect to see the responses to your mailings go through the roof.

Pre-launch for Adchiever begins today at Noon EST!

If you join Adchiever right now I even have some special pre-launch promo codes you can use. These are only good for the next 48 hours so don’t miss these!

Promo Code: 48hours_login
(this will give you 2,000 login ads)

Promo Code: 48hours_banner
(this will give you 2,000 banner impressions)

Darren is also offering a killer discount on the Adchiever upgrade.  You will see the discounted offer only once after joining so pay extra close attention.  You won’t get a second chance at a deal like this.

The official launch date for Adchiever isn’t until next week so this is your chance to get a head-start on your competitors.  After next week I have a feeling we are going to be seeing Adchiever everywhere!

Remember, the Adchiever promo codes only last for 48 hours, so if you wait to join and then try them later, don’t blame me if they are not accepted.

Click the banner below to join Adchiever now!
