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.

The Best Safelists for April 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I have come to the conclusion that safelists and viral list builders don’t work so this will be my final update.

Wait for it…

April Fools!

Ok, that was weak.  We all know safelists and viral list builders rock.  I will keep posting my stats every month until they stop rocking which I suspect won’t be for a very long time.

Did you hear that Viral Mail Profits had a relaunch last month?  That’s no joke!  In my opinion Viral Mail Profits is the best tool to manage all of your safelist and viral list builder mailings from one location.  They have now added their own mailer to allow you to send your ads to other Viral Mail Profits members.  I don’t have any stats to share this month but the results have been very good so far.

The latest viral list builder just launched a few days ago from Michael Coursey.  I’m talking about My Viral List Profits.  This one is so new I haven’t even had a chance to test it out yet.  I do have a special promo code that you can use if you want to test it out for yourself.  This is an exclusive promo code so don’t go sharing it with everybody you know (ok, you can share it with a few people).  Use promo code “safelistexclusivecode” to get 1000 credits, 1000 banner impressions, and 1000 text ads.  It’s only good for the first 100 people who use it so don’t wait too long to use it.  Enjoy!

Ok, let’s get to the stats…

Last month I picked up a total of 191 subscribers just from advertising my squeeze pages on safelists and viral list builders.

Keep in mind that I have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists and viral list builders which often allows me to send more ads more often.  So your results with some of these sites may vary.

Hits Unique Subscribers Ratio
Viral URL 60 92% 32 53.33%
The Lead Magnet 1,272 70% 16 1.26%
Quick List Profits 694 68% 14 2.02%
State of the Art Mailer 3,996 76% 13 0.33%
Instant Profit List 560 65% 13 2.32%
Power Profit List
538 65% 12 2.23%
Ultimate Profit List
445 73% 11 2.47%
Adchiever 1,372 74% 10 0.73%
List Joe
1,695 69% 9 0.53%
AdsolutionLine 2,945 43% 8 0.27%

For years people have been telling me to try Viral URL but I resisted because it’s not credit based and I don’t care about link cloaking and viral ad bars.  But their “Gold” membership allows me to email 3,000 random members every 3 days.  That doesn’t sound like much but the results speak for themselves.  I think I will be sticking with Viral URL for awhile.

As far as the credit based sites, I am sure Stefan Berg will be happy to see that The Lead Magnet is on top once again.  Way to go Stefan!

As a matter of fact, almost all of the new viral list builder sites have been kicking butt lately.  It’s nice to see something new taking place in the industry that is actually working.  If you are not a member of any of the new viral list builders listed above do give them a try.  They are very simple to use and the results have been great.

That’s going to do it for this update.  Keep in mind that all the stats that you see above are a result of my own advertising efforts with my own ads.  Your results may vary but you’ll never know it unless you are tracking your ads!  You can get a free link tracker that will show you which ad sites work best for you from TE Toolbox.

Happy Thursday!

After over a year of waiting I am happy to announce that Viral Mail Profits has finally released their new mailing feature of the site which they are calling the “Direct Feedback Mailer”.

Now when you grab access to the world’s most effective mailer management
system you will also get a highly responsive mailer to go along with it… and you can get it all for free too!

In case you are not already a member of Viral Mail Profits I guess I should explain what the site is all about.

Viral Mail Profits is a must-have tool for anyone who uses safelists and viral list builders.

Imagine this…

* One place to manage all your emails
* One Place to save all your emails
* No more saving random swipe files
* No more time wasted looking for your login details
* No more wasting time logging in to all your mailers  just to find out you can’t mail for x amount of time
* No more missed mailings because you forgot you could mail.
* No more time wasted setting up tracker links
* No more signups missed, because you don’t know which emails convert best.
* No more money lost, because you don’t know which mailers are just plain
useless!
* And just too more to mention here…

And now with the addition of new mailer Viral Mail Profits just got even better!

If you are not already a member of Viral Mail Profits then now would be the time to join.

You can sign-up for free by clicking the banner below.

Enjoy!

The Best Safelists for January 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy New Year!

That’s right.  Another year of safelist marketing is in the books.  And what a great year it was!  2010 saw more than a few new safelists/mailers step up and compete with the big guys who have dominated the market for years.  I have also started to notice a much wider acceptance of safelists by the Internet marketing community as a whole which benefits all of us.

So what’s new this month?

Not a whole lot, actually.  Probably the best thing that happened last month was The Lead Magnet opening it’s mailer.  The site got off to a slow start and held off opening the mailer until the beginning of last month.  It was well worth the wait though as you will see from the stats below.

Viral Mail Profits, which is a free safelist submission tool, is going to be relaunching on a new script later this month with some really cool features.  Most of this is still a big secret and I can’t say much about it so you didn’t hear about any of this from me.

I have a new site launching next week!  It’s not safelist related but after the launch I am going to release a revised version of my most popular ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  Look for that later this month.

And now the stats…

But first, a confession.  My numbers are going to be way off this month.  I took my first vacation in almost two years to visit my family in Connecticut for the holidays.  As much as I love reading safelist credit emails every day I decided to switch all of my accounts to “vacation” mode and enjoy some quality time with my family instead.  The result is that I received far fewer sign-ups than usual but the stats should still reflect which safelists were most responsive from the few mailings I was able to do.

Total Clicks Unique Clicks Action Sales CTA CTS
Adchiever 1,677 1,014 71 17 7.00% 1.68%
The Lead Magnet 856 555 40 14 7.21% 2.52%
AdTactics 2,864 901 61 12 6.77% 1.33%
List Joe 1,568 1,025 63 10 6.15% 0.98%
StateoftheArtMailer 2,837 1,380 53 8 3.84% 0.58%
List Zillion 720 384 27 8 7.03% 2.08%
Global Safelist 1,802 802 22 7 2.74% 0.87%
AdsolutionLine 2,189 911 36 6 3.95% 0.66%
Quality Safelist 1,154 491 22 6 4.48% 1.22%
DownlineBuilderDirect 823 455 19 6 4.18% 1.32%

“Clicks” is how many people viewed my splash page.  “Action” is how many people clicked the link on my splash page to go to the main site.  “Sales” is how many people joined my site.  CTA and CTS are “clicks to action” and “clicks to sale”.  I ranked these safelists by sales but it is also important to look at the other numbers to determine how responsive each safelist really is.

Not nearly as bad as I was expecting.

A big congrats to Adchiever for landing in the top spot this month.  I don’t know about you but it seems like every time I try to send an email with Adchiever the mailer is always down for maintenance and the volume of emails that the site sites out does takes a lot of work to stay on top of but the results are well worth the effort.  If you are not a member of Adchiever yet you are missing out on the best new mailer of 2010.

And a special shout out to Stefan Berg’s The Lead Magnet.  This mailer has only been running since the beginning of December and is already producing some great results.  The membership is still rather small but Stefan is doing a great job at making sure it’s a responsive membership.  Check it out!

That’s it for this month.  I look forward to all the big stuff happening this month including a new mailer launching on the 11th which I think is going to do really well.

As always I like to point out that the stats above are the result of my own efforts advertising my own sites.  What works best for me might not necessarily work best for you.  That is why it is important to always track your own results.  You can get a free link tracker from TEToolbox.

The Best Safelists – December Stats

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Just in case you haven’t already heard… Happy New Year!

Is it really 2010?  I was just getting used to the 00’s.

2009 was a great year for me and safelists.  I guess because of the success of my ebook some people have actually started referring to me as “the safelist guy”.  I don’t think I deserve that title yet but I do have some big plans for 2010.

Let’s get to the news..

It appears AdSolutionline upgraded their surf bar.  It now features a cool graphic spinny thing.  Unfortunately my sign-ups there started to go down around the same time.  Not sure if it’s related but I just put in a support email to make sure everything is working ok.

Elite Safelist had some problems last month too.  Seems there was a hard drive crash which took the mailer down for about a week.  Luckily the problem got solved and everything there is running smoothly again.  Unfortunately, the missed week did bring down my numbers down for last month.  Here’s hoping this month puts Elite Safelist back up where it belongs.

Probably the biggest news last month was the launch of Viral Mail Profits.  This thing is really sweet as it manages all your safelist accounts from one location.  I am told they will be adding a mailer to the program very soon and I expect it to really blow up after that.  If you haven’t joined Viral Mail Profits yet, do it now!

Ok, let’s get to the stats:

Total Clicks

Unique Clicks Action Sales CTA CTS

“Clicks” is how many people viewed my splash page.  “Action” is how many people clicked the link on my splash page to go to the main site.  “Sales” is how many people joined my site.  CTA and CTS are “clicks to action” and “clicks to sale”.

I should probably mention that these stats came from promoting my SMT splash page.  So depending on what you are promoting, your results may vary.
