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.

Safelists don’t work.

I have heard this more than a few times.

When I posted my monthly safelist stats a few days ago I mentioned that I had received 173 new subscribers last month from all of the safelists and viral list builders that I use.  One of my readers found that hard to believe.

“Tell me how on earth did you ever recruit 173 people in one month on Safelists. You must have sent the Mafia out after them. In ten years I don’t think I got five. And of those only one ever did anything. What’s your secret?”

While I share most of this information freely and with more detail in my book Safelist Marketing Tactics I thought a quick summary of how I promote with safelists would be helpful.

1. I email every day.  Every day!  Or at least as often as I can.

2. I read other emails to earn credits… every day!

3. I use a lot of safelists.  Probably way too many.

4. I only use credit-based safelists.

5. I track my ads.  This tells me exactly which safelists are working for me and which ones are a waste of time.

6. I upgrade at the best safelists.

7. I promote something targeted to safelist users.  It probably doesn’t get more targeted than my ebook about safelist marketing.

8. I use eye-catching subjects.  I’ve studied what subjects other marketers use and I have tested dozens of my own to find out which emails get opened more often.

9. I personalize my emails.  I use the [FIRST_NAME] macro whenever it is available and try to include the name of the safelist in the body of the email.

10. I write short emails.  The goal is to just make them curious before they look at my site.

11. I promote unique splash/squeeze pages that I either made myself or had made for me.  Promoting a generic affiliate page is the best way to be ignored.

12. I use personal branding.  If someone sees my face long enough they may start to think I actually know what I am talking about.

13. I use autoplaying videos on some of my ads.  Why?  Because they work.

14. I use a rotator to show a variety of ads.  This is good for testing and can help you to keep your ads fresh.

If you are not using a rotator or link tracker you can get those at TE Toolbox.

As you can see there is no one “secret” to how I got 173 sign-ups last month using safelists and viral list builders.  It’s just a bunch of little things that add up over time.

There’s probably a bunch of other things I could be doing to improve my results more.  Anybody got some tips and tricks they want to share?  C’mon.. no secrets!

Viral Bonuses Launches Today!

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Saturday!

You don’t see too many big sites launching on a Saturday but today my good buddies Darren Olander and Jared Silver are opening the doors to their new site… and it’s full of affiliate landmines.

Don’t panic!

Affiliate Landmines are a GOOD thing.

It is the concept that your referrals will be fed into a multitude of other programs without ANY extra effort on your part.

The best part is.. with Viral Bonuses you get to do it by giving great value away!

And giving great stuff away… well it doesn’t get any easier than that.

Here’s how it works:

* Top website owners will provide you with valuable free offers such as advertising credits, membership upgrades, or other products.

(these are exclusive bonuses that people actually pay for, but Viral Bonuses members get them for free)

* Viral Bonuses keeps a running rolodex of these programs (10 at one time, swapping one new bonus in each week), where you get to plug in your affiliate IDs so your referrals will join these under you.

(and they’ve made extra precautions to ensure your downline DOES join under you)

* You can even claim these bonuses yourself… literally thousands of dollars  worth of quality stuff.

And it’s all 100% Gratis.

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!

My Favorite Internet Marketing Forums

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome back.

The other day I posted an article on my blog that was all about using Internet marketing forums.  In case you missed it, you can read it here:

http://www.getrichwithjerry.com/using-internet-marketing-forums/

I had intended to promote some of my favorite forums in the article but it was getting kinda long so I decided to save that information for a new post.

So what are the best Internet marketing forums?

Probably the largest and most popular Internet marketing forum is the Warrior Forum.  This is probably one of the very first forums I joined when I got into Internet marketing.  It’s extremely active and filled with a wealth of information for new and seasoned marketers.

To be honest, I can’t keep up with everything happening on the Warrior Forum.  There’s literally hundreds of new posts there every day.  It boggles the mind to imagine how anyone can find the time to follow all of the conversations happening there and still manage to get any work done.

But still, if you are willing to put in the effort the Warrior Forum is a great place to learn almost every aspect of Internet marketing from people who are actually doing it.

Digital Point is another extremely active Internet marketing forum filled with great information.

But my personal favorite forum is Net Marketing Forum.

Net Marketing Forum is targeted more towards the hit exchange side of the industry which is right up my alley.  It’s not nearly as active as the Warrior Forum or Digital Point but that also makes it much easier to keep up with.

Just because Net Marketing Forum is smaller than those other sites doesn’t make it any less valuable.  You’ll still find heavy hitters there such as Jon Olson, Tim Linden, Tony Tezak, Mike Paetzold, Robert Puddy, Soren Sordansen, and Paul Kinder (just to name a few).  Of course marketers of all experience levels are welcome.

Net Marketing Forum just recently updated their script and now it really is one of the most interesting forums I am a member of.  The new Net Marketing Forum has taken it’s social networking ability to a whole new level with a wealth of new features.

One thing I would like to ask… if you do decide to join Net Marketing Forum there is a space that asks you to enter the username of the personal who referred you.  If you can, please enter my username: Jerry Iannucci.

I don’t get anything for it other than a little extra street cred but that’s all part of the fun of using a site like Net Marketing Forum.

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!

Do People Buy From You?

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello.

I just thought i’d do a quick post today to let you know about a new ebook that is being released today from my friend Beth Allen called “Power of Promoting You“.

You can download a free copy from here:
http://powerofpromotingyou.com/index.php?r=housedawg

Personal branding is something that I am a very big fan of.

I think when most people start out in Internet marketing they prefer to do it under the guise of anonymity.  For years I used to market under the name “housedawg”.  I think did it out of a lack of confidence for what I was promoting.  I figured, hey if this doesn’t work at least nobody knows who I am.

Today you would have to look pretty hard to find a page I am promoting that doesn’t display my real name and a picture of my face on it.

Why?

Because people like to buy from people that they know and trust.

Sound familiar?

That’s why it is imperative that you start building your own personal brand and Beth’s new ebook  “Power of Promoting You” will show you exactly how to do it.  The best part is that she is giving it away for free!

My First 3 Years of List Building

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I started building my list on June 30, 2007.

I know this because I just checked my Aweber account and searched for the date that my first lead was added.

I felt compelled to look this information up because I received an unexpected email from one of my subscribers tonight.  She was replying to one of the emails I had set to send from my autoresponder 3 years ago!

No, I am not crazy enough to try and write 3 years worth of emails.  I don’t even remember why I did it but for some reason I set the last message in my email series to be sent after 999 days.  The email simply said:

Just checking in to say hello.

How’s it going?

I never expected I would still be doing this 999 days later or that anybody would still be reading my emails after 3 years but sure enough I got a response back tonight:

[]Hi!
thank you for the message.

Have a Blessed new Week.
~ Becky

Thank you Becky!

Over the last few years I have started to gain some perspective on this whole make money from home thing.  I’ve noticed that there is always a handful programs that everybody is trying to promote claiming it’s the next big thing.  It usually lasts for about 3 or 4 months until the focus shifts to a new batch of programs.

For every hot new program you can name now I can name a dead one from a year ago that was just as popular.

I started building my list because I got involved with one of those dead programs which thankfully provided it’s members with lead capture pages to promote.  They had an in-house autoresponder but I chose to pay a little extra to use a 3rd party one.  That’s how I found Aweber.

The company I was promoting is long gone…

But after 3 years, I still have my list!

I’m not saying it’s wrong to promote the latest and greatest opportunity… just do it on the back end!

The only thing you should be promoting are things that build your brand and build your list.  Once people are on your list and have gotten to know you THEN you can introduce them to whatever you want.  If they aren’t interested… well, you’ve got at least 3 years to find something that they are interested in.

So thank you Becky for continuing to read my emails.  I’m going to keep building my list and I look forward to hearing how everyone else is doing for the next 999 days.

Are you ready for another video?

I stayed up late last night recording this video review of Instant Blog Subscribers which is the new free blogging site that was recently launched by Walt Bayliss.

Unfortunately it was about 4:00 am by the time I finished recording the video and I forgot to mention a few things.

One of the things I forgot to mention is the ability for people to subscribe to your blog with one-click.

That button will appear at the top of your blog.  When someone clicks the button they will automatically be subscribed to your blog and they will be notified via email every time you post a new update.  That’s very cool.

Here’s the link to my IBS blog if you want to check it out:
http://www.instantblogsubscribers.com/?w=jerryiannucci

I also wanted to talk a little more about what you can do with your blog.  Basically you can use your blog to share almost anything you want.  For example right now I am sharing my website reviews but you can also post articles you’ve written, share something you learned, rave about something you love, or rant about something you hate.  As you saw in the video some people are even using their blogs as a place to post their ads.  There are really very few limitations for what you can do with your blog.

Finally, I don’t know if the video came off as a review as much as just a walk through of the main features on the site.  In case I forgot to say it, I really really like Instant Blog Subscribers!  It’s sort of the first of what I expect to be many sites that are taking elements of safelist marketing and making them more social.  I think IBS can do more to expand on some of these features such as making comments easier to manage and providing more stats but at this point the site is still really brand new.  I expect to see more developments in the near future.

By the way, in the video you may have noticed that I reposted my review of the site List Zillion which also appears on this blog.  That was less than 9 hours ago.  Since then I have received 5 new sign-ups at List Zillion all of which came from my post at Instant Blog Subscribers.  That’s crazy!

So head over to Instant Blog Subscribers and create your free blog right now.  You don’t need to be a professional blogger to take advantage of this one.  Every post you make will instantly be shared with 200 other members.  There is no better time to start blogging than today.
