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.

    Jerry,

    Does “hits” mean “people who clicked on the link in the email they received from the Safelist?”

    This is really good information — I’ll be joining a few of these as your referral — but one additional piece that would be helpful would be how many people the mail was theoretically sent to.

    Hey Tom.

    Oops. I forgot to define what those fields mean. That’s something I usually do but I guess I was trying to do too many things at once today. Sorry!

    “Hits” is how many people clicked on the credit link that the safelists send out and were redirected to view my squeeze page. “Sign-ups” is obviously how many people opted in for my list.

    I’ve been asked before about providing how many emails I am sending but there is no easy way for me to do that without adding a significant amount of time to my daily mailings. In most cases I am mailing to the maximum number of members as often as the system will allow me which is usually every 24 hours.

    There are a few sites that don’t send out enough emails to make emailing the max number of people possible. In those cases I am clicking every credit email sent out to try and get the most credits possible. However, there might be times when I win bonus credits in a lottery or earn extra credits from a referral. That’s when it gets really tricky to keep track of them.

    But generally, the stats are just meant to serve as a guideline. The sites that are working best for me should in theory work good for everybody.

    And sorry for maybe a stupid question, but what does the “unique” percentage mean?

    Unique views is the percentage of people who saw my ad for the first time. I think it resets every 24 hours.

    Hello Jerry,

    Your site is awesome. You truly are a professional marketer.

    I use Te Toolbox also for tracking. However, how can you know where the signups come from? Your table shows the total of hits for each site, I guess, or am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    Philippe

    Hey Philippe.

    Thanks for the comment.

    With TE Toolbox you can track where your traffic is coming from by appending the name of the site you are advertising on at the end of your tracking link.

    For example, I have a generic tracker that I use for all of my safelist ads which is:
    http://trckrs.com/28390/

    But I never promote that link the way it appears. Instead I use:

    http://trckrs.com/28390/adtactics when I advertise on Adtactics or
    http://trckrs.com/28390/elite when I advertise on Elite Safelist.

    Now when I check my stats at TE Toolbox it shows me a breakdown of how many times each of those tracking links were used giving me a more clear picture of where all my traffic is coming from.

    You don’t need to create new tracking links for every site you advertise on, just add the name of the site to the end of one tracking link and TE Toolbox will do the rest.

    Hope that helps!
