The Best Safelists for December 2021

Hello again!

As we approach the end of 2021 it is more important than ever to continue driving targeted web traffic to your offers and safelists continue to be a great way to do that.

I’m pretty old school so as we move into 2022 I would like to ask… what are some other great free sources of traffic that you are using to build your list? Let me know in the comments below!

Now for my stats…

During November I decided to dust off a “make money” squeeze page that I have been using to build my list in the “work at home” niche. My stats are generated from using only the credit mailers of these safelists and do not include login ads or banners ads or anything like that. I am upgraded at many of these sites and try to spend time every day reading emails to earn credits. I currently submit to 40-50 different safelists. I don’t use every safelist out there and I am constantly updating that list based on my advertising results. I do not include my own Mister Safelist here as I prefer to let other reviewers take care of that. I provide these stats only to show what is currently working best for me. Your results may vary.

Name Hits Signups
European Safelist 3224 4
State of the Art Mailer 1738 4
List Mailer Plus 772 3
Leads N Profits 518 3
Viral URL 170 3
TezzerMail 402 3

Total November Sign-ups: 39

It was not a great month for me but I have also been taking more time off lately to spend time with my family.  Please note that the stats above are provided only to show what is working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what sites work best for you is to track your own ads.  I recommend using HitsConnect to handle all of your link tracking needs.

The Best Safelists for June 2011

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.

The Best Safelists for May 2011

Greetings and welcome to May!

Let’s hope this month brings a few more flowers and a lot less showers.

The big story this month is… List Bonus!  This new viral list builder quietly launched at the start of last month.  I say quietly because the site had been actively promoted for a few months prior to this as part of the beta testing so when the site officially launched there wasn’t much excitement surrounding it.

List Bonus is rocking!  Lots of sign-ups and very few emails in my inbox.  Check my stats below and you will understand why I am so excited about this one.

Viral Mail Profits is also starting to do really well.  This is the safelist and viral list builder organizer that just added it’s own mailer.  This is a unique mailer with some cool functions.  I have been spending a few extra credits when sending my ads to make people answer a survey question about my page.   This forces people to actually look at my page and gets me some valuable feedback as well.  So far, it is working great.

Ok, let’s get to the stats.

As usual I need to throw out a few disclaimers.  First, these are my stats based on my advertising efforts.  I am advertising my squeeze pages that promote my Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook.  Also, I do have upgraded accounts on most of these sites which sometimes allow me to mail more often than free members.  Your mileage may vary.

Total sign-ups in April from all safelists and viral list builders (including those not listed here): 209

Ok, here’s the stats…

Hits Unique Subscribers Ratio
List Bonus
1,683 73% 36 2.14%
State of the Art Mailer 3,801 74% 21 0.55%
Viral URL 42 88% 19 45.24%
List Adventure
640 58% 14 2.19%
Downline Builder Direct 1,301 55% 11 0.85%
Viral Mail Profits
545 77% 11 2.02%
List Zillion
445 73% 11 2.47%
The Lead Magnet 1,364 66% 9 0.66%
Elevated Power List
306 60% 7 2.29%
Quick List Profits 723 68% 6 0.83%

Excellent month for safelists and viral list builders!

As I said earlier, List Bonus is definitely the place to be advertising right now.

Nuff said.

Ok, that’s it for this month.  For once I don’t know of any new launches coming up in the near future.  That’s probably good because I have my hands full right now with more than enough safelists and viral list builders.

Remember, my results may be different than your own but the only way you will ever know is if you are tracking your results.  Don’t have a tracker?  Get one for free when you join TE Toolbox.  That’s what I use and it works for me.

The Best Safelists for April 2011

I have come to the conclusion that safelists and viral list builders don’t work so this will be my final update.

Wait for it…

April Fools!

Ok, that was weak.  We all know safelists and viral list builders rock.  I will keep posting my stats every month until they stop rocking which I suspect won’t be for a very long time.

Did you hear that Viral Mail Profits had a relaunch last month?  That’s no joke!  In my opinion Viral Mail Profits is the best tool to manage all of your safelist and viral list builder mailings from one location.  They have now added their own mailer to allow you to send your ads to other Viral Mail Profits members.  I don’t have any stats to share this month but the results have been very good so far.

The latest viral list builder just launched a few days ago from Michael Coursey.  I’m talking about My Viral List Profits.  This one is so new I haven’t even had a chance to test it out yet.  I do have a special promo code that you can use if you want to test it out for yourself.  This is an exclusive promo code so don’t go sharing it with everybody you know (ok, you can share it with a few people).  Use promo code “safelistexclusivecode” to get 1000 credits, 1000 banner impressions, and 1000 text ads.  It’s only good for the first 100 people who use it so don’t wait too long to use it.  Enjoy!

Ok, let’s get to the stats…

Last month I picked up a total of 191 subscribers just from advertising my squeeze pages on safelists and viral list builders.

Keep in mind that I have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists and viral list builders which often allows me to send more ads more often.  So your results with some of these sites may vary.

Hits Unique Subscribers Ratio
Viral URL 60 92% 32 53.33%
The Lead Magnet 1,272 70% 16 1.26%
Quick List Profits 694 68% 14 2.02%
State of the Art Mailer 3,996 76% 13 0.33%
Instant Profit List 560 65% 13 2.32%
Power Profit List
538 65% 12 2.23%
Ultimate Profit List
445 73% 11 2.47%
Adchiever 1,372 74% 10 0.73%
List Joe
1,695 69% 9 0.53%
AdsolutionLine 2,945 43% 8 0.27%

For years people have been telling me to try Viral URL but I resisted because it’s not credit based and I don’t care about link cloaking and viral ad bars.  But their “Gold” membership allows me to email 3,000 random members every 3 days.  That doesn’t sound like much but the results speak for themselves.  I think I will be sticking with Viral URL for awhile.

As far as the credit based sites, I am sure Stefan Berg will be happy to see that The Lead Magnet is on top once again.  Way to go Stefan!

As a matter of fact, almost all of the new viral list builder sites have been kicking butt lately.  It’s nice to see something new taking place in the industry that is actually working.  If you are not a member of any of the new viral list builders listed above do give them a try.  They are very simple to use and the results have been great.

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

The Best Safelists for March 2011

Welcome to March!

It’s a new month and that means it’s time to dig out my tracker stats and see which safelists and viral list builders having been performing the best for me lately.

But first… here’s what’s new!

Last month Guido Nussbaum threw his hat into the ring with launch of his own viral list builder called Instant List Empire.  The site launched around the middle of the month so I don’t have a full month of tracking data to share.  But the results I have received so far have been excellent.  I’m looking forward to see how it compares with the other VLBs when I run my stats next month.

The List Auction added a new security feature to their surfbar that prevents more than one credit link from being clicked at a time.  Members are required to view a page for the full 15 seconds before they can move on to the next site.  In theory this should increase conversions but activity has been somewhat slow there lately.  I’m anxious to see if this new technique catches on.

Now for the stats!

If you remember back in January I switched my tracking service to TE Toolbox and starting tracking squeeze pages that build my list instead of splash pages that promote my membership sites.  The results have been great and I am happy to say I have a finally have a full month of stats to share.

From advertising my squeeze pages exclusively in safelists and viral list builders I picked up another 241 subscribers last month.

Keep in mind that I am promoting an offer specifically targeted to safelist users.  I also have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists and viral list builders which often allows me to send more ads more often.  So your results with these sites may vary.

Ok, ok… here’s the list:

Hits Unique Subscribers Ratio
The Lead Magnet 932 60% 27 2.90%
Global Safelist 2,162 38% 22 1.02%
Quick List Profits 809 68% 20 2.47%
Viral URL 45 87% 17 37.78%
AdTactics 1,309 24% 12 0.92%
List Effects 472 64% 10 2.12%
State of the Art Mailer 3,913 75% 10 0.26%
List Joe 1,462 77% 10 0.68%
Viral Ad Store 923 62% 9 0.98%
Instant Profit List 491 67% 9 1.83%

Congrats to Stefan Berg and The Lead Magnet for reclaiming the top spot once again.  Stefan is doing really great stuff with this new VLB.  If you’re not a member yet you’re definitely missing out.

And check out Global Safelist proving you don’t need to be the new kid on the block to be a highly responsive mailer.  I’ve been promoting at Global Safelist for several years now it still continues to produce great results for me.

You might notice a new addition to the list.  I joined Viral URL several years ago as a free member but never got very much out of it.  After constantly hearing about it for so long I decided to try it again with an upgraded “gold” membership.  I didn’t get a ton of traffic but the conversion ratio on the traffic I did receive was outstanding!

That’s all for this month.

Remember, what works best for me might not work as well for you.  The only way to know which advertising sites work the best for you is to track your own results.  You can get a great free tracker and start tracking your ads today from TE Toolbox.
