The Top 10 Safelists for 2021

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I have been actively involved in safelist marketing since 2007 and have been sharing my monthly stats here since 2008.  Below is a list of what I consider to be the best safelists for 2021.

This is my first time doing a yearly top 10 list.  What I did was I went back through all of my stats from 2020 and compiled all of the data from all of my ad campaigns and ranked them by the total number of conversions I received from them over the year.
These stats came from a combination of lead capture pages that I used to build my list as well as splash pages that I used to promote my own safelist.  Some of the campaigns were good.  Some were not.  I just lumped everything together here to hopefully give a fair example of what the average user could expect.
While all of the safelists below do offer free memberships I often try to buy upgrades when I can afford them.  I also do spend some time most days reading ads from other members so that i can earn enough credits to send my ads to the maximum number of people as often as possible.
Here we go!
Mister Safelist is my baby.  I have owned and operated it since 2011.  It’s a bit of a cheat putting it at the top of this list but since I don’t test it the way I do other safelists there is no way for me to know exactly where it would rank.  I do promote it constantly to bring in new members and while activity remains high I am always looking for new ways to make it better.  After you join all of the sites below I would love to have you join and tell me what you think.

#1 – European Safelist – Hits: 79,628  Sign-ups: 76

European Safelist continues it’s reign at the top of the online safelist charts.   Launched in 2007 with over 16,000 members if you’re looking to get your ads seen fast this is one of the best places to do it.  Upgraded memberships are super cheap and well worth the cost for the ability to send your ads every day.  Highly recommended!


#2 – State Of The Art Mailer – Hits: 32,853  Sign-ups: 47
Email Marketing Evolved!

State Of The Art Mailer uses a unique “button escalation” system that allows you to increase the number of members you can mail by looking at ads.  Free members can reach 500 members every 7 days but can increase that to 3,000 members with their credits.  Upgrades allow you to jump up to higher button levels and email every 3 days.  The top level button upgrades aren’t cheap but even the low levels work great for the number of mails you can send.  This is just a fantastic site that never fails to impress me with how active it’s members are.  Highly recommended!


#3 – ViralURL – Hits: 1,610  Sign-ups: 34

ViralURL specializes in offering advanced shortening, cloaking, and link tracking services.  I don’t really care about any of those things.  All I know is that the “Random Mailer”offered here consistently gives me the highest percentage of sign-ups per emails sent.  Give this one a try and I think you will be just as impressed as I continue to be.


#4 – Leads N Profits – Hits: 10,168  Sign-ups: 30

Leads N Profits had a big launch towards the end of 2019 and it’s momentum carried it well into 2020.  It doesn’t seem to be getting as much attention lately though so I suspect we won’t see this on next year’s list.  However, even at the start of 2021 my emails are still out performing most of the other lists I use.  Try and it and see for yourself.


#6 – Traffic Leads 2 Income VM – Hits: 15,518  Sign-ups: 19

Traffic Leads 2 Income Viral Mailer has the longest title of any safelist on this list.  It also has one of the most passionate owners working tirelessly behind the scenes to help keep activity high.  I like it a lot and I have no problem recommending it to anyone looking for good quality traffic for their ads.


#7 – List Adventure – Hits: 19,924  Sign-ups: 18

List Adventure is one of the oldest safelists on this list.  It’s fun to scroll back to 2013 in the mailing history and see how much traffic my ads generated.  While not as active as it was 8 years ago there are still more active members here than most of the newer lists I use.  Well worth joining if you’re not already a member.


#8 – List Avail – Hits: 13,600 Sign-ups: 18
Join ListAvail.com

List Avail features “bonus views” for upgraded members that show your ads to other members after they use the mailer.  This boosts your CTR% and keeps your ads in front of the most active members.  This is a quality safelist from top to bottom.


#9 – TezzerMail – Hits: 9,211 Sign-ups: 16

TezzerMail not only has the distinction of being operated by the team who designed the LFMVM mailer script that most modern safelists run on today but their many years of experience in the traffic exchange industry is what makes this one of the best safelists around today. I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what is available here so expect to see this one rise for me over the new year.


#10 – List Nerds – Hits: 5,377 Sign-ups: 16

List Nerds was relaunched in 2020 as part of the Click, Track, Profit network of sites. Thanks to this addition the site has been infused with new life that has resulted in increased activity and higher response rates. Keep an eye on this one and watch it continue to grow into 2021.


And that’s my list!  Please note that I don’t use every safelist out there and there are probably some great ones that’s I’ve never heard of.  Feel free to leave any recommendations in the comments and let me know what you think of my list.  I’d love to hear from you!

    Nice list of sites. I got success from many of those sites as well. I can say Mister Safelist was very successful as will according to my tracking. I did not even know List Nerds still existed so may need to join that one to check it out.

    Hey Randall! Thanks for taking the time to comment and the nice words about Mister Safelist. List Nerds was dead for awhile but since the CTP guys decided to resurrect it a few months ago it definitely seems to be coming back to life.

    I’ve been returning to this site often. Amazed with the results the Safelists return and the sign-ups.

    I’ve been on safelists for years already and yes, they’re a good place for leads. I’ve got good results too. These are targeted leads, in the same marketplace who need leads too. It’s a win win.

    Thank you Jerry for your focus, consistency and humble approach to internet marketing. Looking forward to more updates. :)

    http://www.trendmails.com is a scam!
    I paid by credit card to upgrade my free status to Platinum membership. Afterward, no upgrade nor reply to my support tickets. Keep out of this scam.

    Hi Dim. Thanks for letting me know. Someone recently told me they were having trouble reaching the owner about joining. It would be a shame if it is no longer being supported. I just sent in a request for commissions (I don’t remember ever having to request it before) so let’s see what happens.

    Confirmed. Trend is under new management now and they are not answering support emails or paying commissions. I apologize for not knowing about this sooner. I’m pulling back any recommendations I have made for this site. Stay away!

    Just an update that I have finally been paid. It took almost a week after sending my request but less than 24 hours after posting my comment here.

    I’m new to safelists but not marketing. I love the concept. I see nothing wrong with listing your first it really is your baby just like my drip affiliate income is my baby.
    I got a forum join my first post to your Safelist.
    Thanks for this, your Safelist and all your hard work.
