The Best Safelists for June 2010

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to June!  It’s a new month and that means it’s time for me to dig out my safelist stats from last month and see what are the top safelists right now based on my current advertising campaigns.

Not a lot of news to report for last month.  I did weed out about half a dozen smaller safelists that I had been using which were not producing a lot of sign-ups.  It was hard because most of these safelists were still bringing in a few sign-ups every month but as my list of safelists that I use daily continues to grow I find myself having less time to focus on the sites that are bringing me the best results.

That means I now have some free time to test out some newer sites and to retest some sites that I haven’t used in a very long time.  While I don’t have stats for them yet you can expect to find List Zillion, State of the Art Mailer System, and Reactive Ads in here next month.

Speaking of newer sites…  There are a lot of good programs out there that go right over my head because I can’t always distinguish them from all of the junk.  If you know of any safelists or viral list builders that are working for you but you haven’t seen me mention here feel free to post your referral link in the comments.

Ok, time for the stats.  Over the last few weeks I have been promoting my splash pages in Sweeva and have gotten some really interesting feedback.  I decided that instead of just advertising one splash page in my safelist ads I would put three of them into a rotator and advertise that instead.  I’ve been doing this for the last two weeks.  So far so good.  All of the splash pages that I am promoting on these safelists are being used to promote my site Safelist Marketing Tactics.

Total Clicks

Unique Clicks Action Sales CTA CTS
List Effects 1,192 696 51 16 7.33% 2.30%
ListBuildingMaximizer 1,743 828 69 15 8.33% 1.81%
List Joe 1,493 1,053 51 13 4.84% 1.23%
ViralAdStore 1,706 871 45 9 5.17% 1.03%
Adsolutionline 2,497 938 46 6 4.90% 0.64%
List Auction 1,240 628 33 6 5.25% 0.96%
Got Safelist 1,954 895 60 5 6.70% 0.56%
European Safelist 735 276 31 5 11.23% 1.81%

“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.

Not a great month, actually.  List Effects managed to hang on to the top spot again but just barely.  Everything else seems to have either stayed the same or dropped slightly.

As usual I should point out that these are my own personal stats from  promoting my own personal splash pages.  These numbers are only meant to be a guide to help you decide which safelists and viral listbuilders are worth trying.  Your results will probably be different from my own so the only way to know for sure which sites work best for you is to track your own results.  You can get a free link tracker from TEToolbox.

    Hi Jerry, are you using Solo Ads with those lists? or what type of ads?

    Nope. Those are just the standard credit based email ads. I do send a lot of solo ads but I track them separately. Perhaps I will do a special report some month on the best solo ads.

    Hi Jerry,
    Thanks for this great information. Good to see you get sales from these safelists as well. Do you stop advertising on the smaller lists or do you keep them in your campaigns as well?
    A special report on the best solo ads would be welcome as well.

    I have a bunch of safelists that I still use which never seem to make it onto my “top” list. Some of them are just under the wire but I keep them because even if I am not getting that many sign-ups I am still getting good daily exposure for my ads. The rest I go on “vacation” mode and maybe try them again in 6-8 months.
