The Best Safelists for July 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and welcome to July!

Has it really been a month since I last updated my blog?  Sorry.  I’ve been really busy working on my new site which I hope to unveil very soon.  Trust me, the wait is going to be worth it.

In the meantime I can’t ignore the fact that it is the first of the month and just like I have been doing since I don’t know when I started… it’s time to dig out my advertising stats from last month’s safelists and viral list builders and show you what has been working best for me.

But first, the news!

Actually, not too much to report from last month.  Sean Supplee did launch a new viral list builder called List Ablaze at the start of the month.  My stats there this month were good but nothing spectacular.  Are we starting to reach a point where the market for new viral list builders is becoming over saturated?

Ok, let’s get to the stats!

If you have never been here before, here’s how it works.  I promote a few rotating squeeze pages every day in over 30 different safelists and viral list builders.  I track how many people are clicking the credit links to view my pages and how many are joining my list.  Yes, I am upgraded on most of these mailers and your results may vary based on what it is you are promoting.  These stats are just meant to serve as a guide to help you to decide what mailers you should be using this month.

Got it?  Good.  Here we go…

Hits Unique Sign-ups Ratio
List Bonus
1600 81.00% 30 1.88%
Elite Safelist
2485 39.00% 18 0.72%
List Adventure
701 61.00% 17 2.43%
List Effects
338 60.00% 14 4.14%
3825 78.00% 14 0.37%
Adchiever 1474 68.00% 13 0.88%
The Lead Magnet
978 60.00% 11 1.12%
Viral URL
62 71.00% 11 17.74%
Ultimate Profit List
628 72.00% 11 1.75%
Viral Mail Profits
453 70.00% 11 2.43%
Instant List Empire
170 71.00% 8 4.71%
List Ablaze
716 73.00% 8 1.12%
Adsolutionline 2494 41.00% 7 0.28%
European Safelist
608 29.00% 7 1.15%

Total June sign-ups from all mailers (including those not listed here): 230

I decided to expand the list to 15 instead of 10 this month to help give a better picture of what is going on.

Once again, List Bonus is rocking the top of the list.  I don’t know how they are doing it but I am getting sign-ups every single time I send out an ad there.  If you’re not a member of List Bonus yet I have no idea what you are waiting for.

Look who has found their way back into the number two slot.  Is that Elite Safelist?  Why, yes it is!  Who said old school safelists are dead?  Those people are missing on on some great traffic from some great sites.  If you haven’t tried Elite Safelist in awhile go check it out.

And then there’s all the other mailers that we know and love.  Blah, blah, blah.

Now get out there and start promoting your sites!

But first, make sure you are tracking your links.  If you don’t track, you will never know which sites are working for you and which ones are not.  If you need a tracking tool you can get the same one that I am using for free from TEToolbox.

    Hi Jerry

    Some great numbers here, I have to confess that even with a free account at listeffects I’m also getting results, so definate thumbs up to them.

    Do you use any of Gary Ambrose’s listbuilders? I know these are several years old, but they always pull in leads for me.

    Someone else just asked that question on Facebook. I feel stupid asking but which ones are the Gary Ambrose listbuilders?

    I have similar amazing results on http://listbonuses.com I dunno how they do it either but I’ve definitely gotten the most from them than any other safelist, I dropped a couple due to poor results but will have to pick up some new ones from your list, thanks for sharing!

    You should give a shot at the mailer I added to FCAT, it’s basic so it doesn’t track for you but I personally have gotten a lot of subscribers from it (though there is a bias with my own content of course)

    I haven’t been that serious with safelists for quite sometime now. I will start now. Thank you Jerry for giving me momentum to bounce into action!
