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 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.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
List Adventure 3991 59.00% 12 0.30%
Bweeble 2118 65.00% 10 0.47%
100 Percent Mailer 2922 58.00% 6 0.21%

List Nerds 1044 61.00% 4 0.38%
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%
List Adventure 2834 56.00% 11 0.39%
Viral Nugget 2084 39.00% 10 0.48%
List Nerds 2013 56.00% 10 0.50%
Adchiever 3457 44.00% 10 0.29%
Puffin Mailer 2904 33.00% 8 0.28%
Viral URL 119 65.00% 7 5.88%
State of the Art Mailer 2241 46.00% 7 0.31%
AdTactics 1030 32.00% 7 0.68%
Elite Safelist 2581 36.00% 6 0.23%
List Bonus 1271 44.00% 6 0.47%
List Jumper 1922 52.00% 5 0.26%
Email-Hog 1577 53.00% 5 0.32%

Total April sign-ups (including mailers not shown here): 172

Keep in mind that the stats above are only provided to show what is working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely the different.  The only want to find out is to use a link tracker.  You can get the same link tracker that I use from trck.me.

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 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.

Viral Cash Mailer 1293 11.00% 6 0.46%

Total Decembers sign-ups from all safelists and viral list builders (including those not shown here): 178

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.

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.

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 September 2012

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Is it September already?

August really seemed to fly by.  Now it’s time to get busy and see what safelists and viral list builders have been giving me the best results lately.

The big news from last month was the re-launch of Darren Olander‘s viral list builder and advertising tool Viral Nugget.  I don’t have a full month of stats to share yet but so far the results have been very good.  Darren is well known for creating powerful advertising sites and it looks like Viral Nugget will be no exception.

I’ve been dropping mailers left and right that use the LFMVM script.  The thrill is gone!  A month of clicking every day for 1 or 2 sign-ups just isn’t worth my time.  The major exception is Max Mailer Pro from William Brant.  William did some major revisions to the standard script and the results speak for themselves.  This should be a lesson for anyone thinking about launching a cookie cutter website to spend some time and money to make you site as good as it can be.

The final thing I want to say before getting to the stats is this… Bweeble!  You’ll understand why in a minute.

If this is your first time here this is how my safelist stats work.  Every day I submit ads promoting a series of lead capture pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I currently submit to 35-40 different safelists and viral list builders.  I track my ads using TE Toolbox and share the top 15 sites that brought me the most subscribers here on my blog.  I am upgraded in most of these safelists and viral list builders which often gives me the ability to send more ads to more people.  These stats are meant to serve as a guide to show what is currently working best for me.  Your results may vary.

Here we go…

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Bweeble 5734 70.00% 52 0.91%
Max Mailer Pro 4351 41.00% 22 0.51%
The Lead Magnet 1114 46.00% 15 1.35%
List Bonus 2054 63.00% 15 0.73%
List Outbreak 904 53.00% 15 1.66%
Viral Nugget 1022 64.00% 14 1.37%

Instant List Empire 477 47.00% 10 2.10%
EZ Profit List 487 53.00% 10 2.05%
List Adventure 1376 48.00% 9 0.65%
TopTierMailer 1598 59.00% 9 0.56%
State of the Art Mailer 2911 62.00% 8 0.27%
Adchiever 3531 61.00% 8 0.23%
Elite Safelist 2553 40.00% 7 0.27%

Total new sign-ups from all safelists and viral list builders (including those not listed here): 277

So much for the “summer slow down” theory.

Seriously… Bweeble!  I don’t know what else I can say here.  52 new subscribers in one month is just ridiculous for something I have been promoting for so long.  If you are not taking advantage of Bweeble yet you are missing out on some great traffic.   If you can afford the yearly upgrade grab it!  Offers like this don’t come around very often.

Everything else looks to be in line.  Max Mailer Pro is clearly the best of the new LFMVM sites.  The Lead Magnet seems to go up and down for me every month but is consistently one of the top ranked mailers.  List Bonus is owned by the same guys who created Bweeble so no surprise to see it is still bringing in tons of sign-ups too.

That should do it for this month.  Hopefully I will have a new launch to announce very soon.  As always keep in mind that the stats above are the results of my own marketing efforts.  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 that I use for free at TE Toolbox.
