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 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.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Max Mailer Pro 5668 15.00% 18 0.32%
Viral Nugget 2318 25.00% 14 0.60%
Adchiever 3742 26.00% 10 0.27%
List Adventure 1428 22.00% 10 0.70%
List Bonus 1742 31.00% 9 0.52%
List Jumper 1152 42.00% 9 0.78%
Viral List Builder Plus 3470 19.00% 9 0.26%
List Joe 636 38.00% 8 1.26%
Adsolutionline 2042 17.00% 8 0.39%

EZ Profit List 519 27.00% 6 1.16%
AdTactics 1408 17.00% 6 0.43%
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.

Adchiever 3865 27.00% 16 0.41%

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.

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%

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.
