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.

Power Surf Central

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Power Surf Central is a joint venture between the traffic exchange programs Hit Safari, Soaring4Traffic, and RealHitz4u.  The three program owners have teamed up to offer their members a reward system for the daily usage of their programs.

Here are a few of the features included with your Power Surf Central membership:

  • Your own customizable profile which you can share with the world

    many features on the site including spotlight ads, credits, banner impressions
    text impressions and more being added all the time
  • An ever growing site that will continue to train its members to keep them
    ahead of the curve

Power Surf Central also functions as a downline builder for you as any new members that you refer will be required to join Hit Safari, Soaring4Traffic, and RealHitz4u to take advantage of their membership.

As more and more surfers are looking for extra rewards for their time spent surfing it makes sense for these three traffic exchange owners to join forces to offer Power Surf Central to their members.  Each of the featured traffic exchanges offer their own large and active memberships which together can be used to help your ads reach a much wider audience.

The new Power Surf Central website launches today.

Hooray!

It’s that time of the year again.

You probably already know this but I am kind of a big nerd when it comes to using giveaway events to build my list.

Heck, I wrote a book about it!

But there is one guy who hosts THE BEST giveaway events on the planet.  Yes, I am talking about Guido Nussbaum.

Guido’s giveaway events probably produce more sign-ups for me than all the other events combined for the entire year… and it’s almost time for one of his biggest giveaways ever.

That’s right… it’s almost time for Guido’s legendary Halloween Giveaway!

This year Guido has made some major improvements to the way the event is going to be run.  I think with these changes in place it is going to create a much more level playing field so that even people with the smallest lists will be able to reap the same rewards as the most active particpants.

The site launches on October 25th…

… but I am inviting you to get in RIGHT NOW as a free contributor!

This will be my 4th year participating and I am totally psyched!

If you are new to building your list with giveaway events then this is definitely an event you will not want to miss.  What’s great is that it is absolutely free for you to join as a contributor and see what all the fuss is about.

Don’t wait until October 25th…

Top 12 Sweeva Tips and Tricks

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Now that Sweeva has passed the 20,000 member mark I thought now would be a good time to share some of my best tips and tricks to help people maximize their Sweeva experience.

Not a member of SweevaJoin here.

Top 12 Sweeva Tips and Tricks

1. Read the FAQ –  Sweeva is a unique program combining the elements of social networking and free traffic exchange programs.  The more you understand how the system works the easier it will be for you to take advantage of all the features it has to offer.

2. Update Your Profile – Sweeva is a social site.  That means that other members are going to be just as interested in who you are as they are about what you are promoting.  Keep your profile updated and don’t forget to upload your photo to Gravatar.

3. Organize Your Websites – Every page you submit to Sweeva will be visible on your profile.  Even if you don’t plan to spend any credits promoting a page it’s a good idea to have a list of your sites that can be viewed by other members.  Tip: Add your sites with the Sweeva toolbar to earn toolbar loyalty points.

4. Add Quality Feedback – Sweeva gives you the ability to receive instant feedback on any pages that you are promoting.  By leaving quality comments on other people’s sites you are not only earning experience points for yourself but you are also helping to get yourself recognized as a valuable member of the Sweeva community.

5. Add Profile Comments – Check out some of the profiles of other members and post a personal message on their page.  Ask them about their sites or just introduce yourself.  Obviously don’t spam them with your offers but take advantage of this opportunity to network with other members.

6. Support Your Downline – If you refer a new member to Sweeva post a message on their profile to welcome them.  Let them know that you are available to help them if they need it.  Remember, the more active your Sweeva referrals are the greater your rewards.

7. Strike While the Iron is Hot – Regardless of how many credits you bid your site will only be seen by however many people are surfing at the time it is shown.  The number of people surfing varies throughout the day but you can get a good idea of when Sweeva is most active by looking at the daily stats. You can also see how many people are currently online by looking at the “Previous Site” numbers at the bottom of the members area.  Wait until there is a good sized crowd of people surfing before you show your site to maximize your page’s exposure.  Tip: Activity tends to go way up right after the owners send out an email update.

8. Conserve Your Credits – If you plan on surfing Sweeva for awhile try adjusting your bids to see how low you can go.  It usually takes about 10 minutes to find out if your bid has been accepted.  Don’t overbid unless you really want to get your site seen now.

9. Engage Your Guests – My favorite way to use Sweeva is to be present when my site is being shown.  This lets me personally welcome people to my page and let them know that I am there if they have any questions.  Be social.  Thank people if they say something nice.  Give out stars.  Have fun with it and reap the rewards.

10. Clean Your Comments – This might seem controversial but I delete unwanted comments from my pages before they are shown.  Negative comments are fine because it gives me a chance to interact with people but I would rather people only see the quality comments on my page.  A page full of people posting “ok” and “good” does nothing to benefit you.  It’s no different than tidying up your home before you invite over company.  Delete the junk from your comments to make sure the important comments can be seen.

11. Upgrade Your Membership – If you can afford it the upgraded Sweeva membership is one of the best deals around.  Not only will you earn greater commissions from your downline but you will also earn credits and XP faster than free members.

12. Be Creative – Sweeva is your social networking community.  You can make it into whatever you want it to be.  Think of new ways to interact with other members.  Try out a new splash page.  Record a video.  Have a contest.  Be social.  It’s your Sweeva.  Have fun with it!
