The Best Safelists for June 2012

Author: Jerry Iannucci

It’s June!

It seems that many people think that this is the time of year business slows down.  Ask anyone who has been in this business for a few years and you will know that this is the best time to really ramp up your advertising while your competition is lounging on the beach.

I think the biggest news this month in the safelist and VLB world is the release of the new LFMVM script for running viral list builder sites.  I’m using the original LFM script to run my ebook websites.  That script was later developed into one of the most popular traffic exchange scripts called LFMTE.  The new LFMVM script is very similar to LFMTE but works as a viral mailer.  Does this mean that there are going to be a whole slew of new viral list builders using the LFMVM script launching in the next few months?

Yes.

The first new LFMVM site rolled out about two weeks ago from Da Riley called 1 Modern Mailer.  It offers some unique features including earning a percentage of your credits back from any unopened emails.  Two more LFMVM sites quickly followed with Viral IM List from Amanda McEwan and Max Mailer Pro from William Brant.   No stats to share yet but hopefully this will be the first of many great new mailers to come.

Ad Master Safelist is now owned by Mark McCulloch.  I’ve seen this site around for awhile but never joined.  Now that Mark is in charge I decided to check it out a few days ago.  The design is nice but so far I haven’t had a chance to test it out much yet.  I will say that if you do join plan to spend a little money.  Ad Master Safelist has one of the best one-time-offers I have seen in a long time.  Of course you can still join for free but Mark has put together a crazy offer that will make almost anybody who uses safelists want to buy an upgrade.  I’m looking forward to seeing what Mark does to the site.

I joined a few new safelists at the beginning of last month.

Most of them sucked and aren’t worth mentioning.

One site that surprised me though was Solo Effects.  I joined this because it was ranked in List Hoopla.  It feels a little too much like a text ad exchange for me but it works just like a safelist.  So far so good.  You can check out my results in the stats below.

Speaking of stats…

You probably already know how this works.  Every day I am  using 30-40 safelists and viral list builders to send out ads for my free ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I am promoting a lead capture page and I use a free link tracker to see how often my emails are read as well as how many new subscribers I receive to my list.  Every month I dig out my stats to see which safelists and viral list builders are producing the best results and which ones are wasting my time.  I then share those stats here on my blog.

I always like to point out that I do have upgraded memberships at most of these sites which often gives me the ability to send my ads more often than free members.  My ads are also very targeted to other safelist members which does help to increase my response rate.  Your results my vary.

Ok, enough of that.  Here’s the stats… 

  Hits Unique Signups Ratio
List Bonus 2005 69.00% 14 0.70%
TopTierMailer 2159 66.00% 13 0.60%
Your EZ List 1025 56.00% 12 1.17%
Viral List Builder Plus 1587 49.00% 11 0.69%
List Adventure 1307 51.00% 10 0.77%
Quick List Profits 337 55.00% 9 2.67%
List Surfing 2493 78.00% 8 0.32%
Genie Mailer 778 42.00% 7 0.90%
Solo Effects 1771 47.00% 7 0.40%
Adchiever 2984 67.00% 6 0.20%
Email-Hog 1263 71.00% 6 0.48%
EZ Profit List 472 53.00% 6 1.27%
List Outbreak 1000 58.00% 6 0.60%
Global Safelist 930 41.00% 5 0.54%
State of the Art Mailer 2494 71.00% 4 0.16%

 It was really a fight to the finish between List Bonus and the new TopTierMailer.  Of course Your EZ List and Viral List Builder Plus were not far behind.

Next month is going to be a condensed listing as I will finally be taking some time off to visit my family.  That means setting “vacation” mode for all my lists until I get back.  I expect there will be even more  new LFMVM sites out by then and it will be interesting to see how well those perform.

Before I go I always like to remind people that these stats are the result of my own personal marketing efforts.  I post these stats on my blog every month to show which sites are currently working best for me.  I provide this as a jumping off point for people who are looking for new safelists and viral list builders to try.  What works best for you might be something entirely different than what I have here but you will never know unless you are tracking your ads.  You can get the same free link tracker that I use from TE Toolbox.

Safelist Review – TopTierMailer

Author: Jerry Iannucci

TopTierMailer is the new viral list builder from Matthew Graves who is the creator of such popular traffic exchanges as WebBizInsider and TopTierTraffic.

TopTierMailer launched quietly on April 5, 2012.  I understand there were no JV partners for this launch but word has spread quickly.  It’s now 2 weeks later and TopTierMailer is fast approaching 3,000 members.

TopTierMailer is running on a similar version of the script used to run TopTierTraffic.  If you are a member of TopTierTraffic you will feel right at home here.  Because this is a unique script TopTierMailer offers some cool features not seen on any other safelist.

One of the first things you will notice is that TopTierMailer offers members an option to view emails right on the website.

TopTierMailer

This is great for people who are new to safelist marketing and aren’t ready to manage an inbox filled with daily emails.

The mailer also offers a unique feature not seen on other viral list builders.

Free Members can send an email to as many members as they have credits every 7 days. Premium Members are set for every 3 days. However, you dont have to send a single email to all the members. For example, if you had 2,000 credits, then you can send 1,000 members an email promoting Website A and the other 1,000 members a completely different email promoting Website B. You are not limited to sending a single email every 3 or 7 days. The limit is on how many emails you can send to EACH MEMBER every 3 or 7 days.

This means if you have multiple sites that you want to promote or if you want to split test different ads you don’t need to wait until your next mailing time to send multiple emails.

Another cool feature at TopTierMailer allows you transfer in your credits earned from Matthew’s traffic exchanges.  I love this feature because if I have read all of my emails and I still want more credits I can just head over to WebBizInsider and surf for more.

TopTierMailer is free but upgraded members also get these benefits:

  • 2,500 Weekly Mailing Credits
  • Get Double Credits for Reading Emails
  • Earn Credits Faster By Reading Emails in Digest Form (1 Email Per Day with all emails in it)
  • Digest Form Email Avoids Inbox Overload (1 Email Per Day with all emails in it)
  • Send Emails Every 3 Days (Free Is 7 Days)
  • Unlimited Banner Impressions (No Credits Needed)
  • Random Referrals Added To Your Downline (Yearly Membership Only)
  • Earn 50% Commissions (Free Is 10%)

The yearly membership is available immediately after joining.

While TopTierMailer has been online for about 2 weeks the mailer just opened a few days ago.  I sent my first email yesterday.  So far I have received 112 hits and 4 sign-ups.  Not bad for my first email.  I will continue to track my results and will be sharing my stats on my blog every month.

With nearly 3,000 members and 100 new ones joining every day TopTierMailer is definitely the place to be right now.  That’s a lot of active members and the perfect audience to be advertising to.  To say that I am excited for the future of TopTierMailer would be an understatement.  I am definitely looking forward to everything TopTierMailer has to offer.

The Best Safelists for June 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello fellow Internet marketers!

Once again it is time to dig out my stats and show you what safelists and viral list builders have been working best for me during the previous month.

But first, the news…

Actually, there isn’t much news this month.  This biggest thing happening right now is yesterday’s launch of Sean Supplee’s new viral list builder called “List Ablaze“.  The site is running on the same script as many of the other recent viral list builders but with a few custom modifications that should help it outperform some of it’s competitors.

Obviously I don’t have any stats to share for List Ablaze this month but knowing Sean and how well these scripts perform I would definitely recommend getting your ads in there while the site is still hot.

Ok, time for the stats…

I always have to preface this by saying that these are my stats from advertising my sites.  I am promoting a squeeze page and tracking the number of new sign-ups to my list.  I am also upgraded on most of these sites which often allows me to send more emails than free members.

Here’s the top 10 list…


Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Viral URL 102 86.00% 46 45.10%
List Bonus 1785 75.00% 36 2.02%
The Lead Magnet 1192 65.00% 26 2.18%
StateoftheArtMailer 3619 76.00% 20 0.55%
Quick List Profits 553 68.00% 16 2.89%
List Effects 493 66.00% 11 2.23%
AdsolutionLine 2053 44.00% 9 0.44%
AdTactics 1401 68.00% 9 0.64%
AdsolutionLine 393 75.00% 9 2.29%
Elevated Power List 417 56.00% 8 1.92%

Total sign-ups for May from safelists and viral list builders: 245

Another excellent month.  No big surprises.  My gold membership at Viral URL continues to dominate.  List Bonus, The Lead Magnet, and State of the Art Mailer also remain right at the top of the list where they have been for awhile.  If you’re not already a member of any of these they are definitely worth your time.

As I stated earlier these are my stats from advertising my squeeze pages.  Your results may differ but you will never know unless you are tracking your ads.  Need a link tracker?  You can get the same one that I am using for free from TE Toolbox.

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.

The Best Safelists for October 2010

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to October!

I’m sure glad last month is over.  I’ve been doing a lot offline work at a new concert venue here in town and haven’t had much time to work on my online stuff.  When I am online I’ve been spending much of my time branding myself and building my list at Sweeva.  The results have been fantastic but the social aspect can be very time consuming.

Even with all that going on I still manage to find time to do my safelist and viral list builder submissions every day.  Before we get to the monthly safelist stats here’s what’s going on in the industry…

Two new list builders launched last month.  Both of them are running on the same script that List Effects started using a few months ago.  The script doesn’t offer a lot of bells and whistles but for a mailer it gets the job done.

The first site launched at the beginning of last month called Power Profit List.  The site is owned my Michael Coursey who is a well respected traffic exchange owner.  As you will see in my stats below Power Profit List is performing well above expectations.  Hopefully that will continue into this month.

The other new mailer just launched yesterday and is called Quick List Profits.  They are waiting until they hit 2000 members before they open the mailing part of the site but considering over 1000 people joined yesterday I am guessing we won’t have to wait long.  I just know that when the mailer opens at Quick List Profits I am going to enjoy getting my ads in front of those 2000 new members.

And finally, my good friend Winter Perkins dropped a bombshell on me earlier this week when she told me she is going to be taking over Reactive Adz from David Foley.  Reactive Adz is an amazing looking safelist but in my opinion it has never fully lived up to it’s potential.  I think Winter has what it takes to whip Reactive Adz back into shape.  I don’t think the take over is official yet but look for some big changes at Reactive Adz over the next few months.

Ok, ready for the stats?

Like any other successful Internet marketer I use tracking links to gather valuable statistics about my ads to let me know which advertising sites are bringing me the best results.  Every month I share my safelist and viral list builder stats here on my blog.  These stats are a results of promoting several splash pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I do pay for upgraded memberships at most of these safelists so if the numbers seem higher than what you are getting as a free member that’s probably why.

Total Clicks Unique Clicks Action Sales CTA CTS
State of the Art Mailer 4,209 2,114 79 22 3.74% 1.04%
List Joe 2,118 1,467 51 19 3.48% 1.30%
List Zillion 1,386 779 59 13 7.57% 1.67%
DownlineBuilderDirect 2,463 1,036 55 14 5.31% 1.35%
AdTactics 2,891 869 56 13 6.44% 1.50%
Power Profit List 882 584 46 12 7.88% 2.05%
ListBuildingMaximizer 2,091 804 67 9 8.33% 1.12%
List Auction 1,370 727 39 6 5.36% 0.83%
ViralAdStore 1,292 726 33 6 4.55% 0.83%
Adsolutionline 2,406 895 29 5 3.24% 0.56%

“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.

Have I mentioned how much I love State of the Art Mailer?  (swoon)

It’s nice to see List Joe back on top again where it belongs.  Welcome back List Joe!

The newest entry on the list is Power Profit List which launched at the beginning of last month.  Not a huge amount of traffic but it’s very “active” traffic which is what really counts.  Let’s hope that momentum carries into next month as well.

The big shocker this month is DownlineBuilderDirect.  This site has been around for awhile as a non-credit based viral list builder but recently made the switch to credits.  I picked up a lifetime upgrade and was starting to think I wasted my money after the dismal results I was receiving over the last few months.  Looks like things are finally picking up!

If you are not already a member of ListBuildingMaximizer you can join there and you are sure to receive some solo ads offering discounts on the upgrade at DownlineBuilderDirect.  Even if you’re not interested the upgrade you should be a member of ListBuildingMaximizer anyways because it’s just an excellent mailer.

That’s it for this update.  Keep in mind that all the stats 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.
