Ultimate Safelist Survival: What is a safelist anyway?

What is a Safelist

Basically a safelist is a gathering of like minded individuals who have
agreed to exchanges ads. You agree to receive ads from all the others
members in exchange for the opportunity to send your own. This concept
has many advantages, here's a couple of them.

The advantages of safelist marketing

For one it's spam free as people have to double opt-in to the safelist and
thereby agreeing to receive your ads, should some nutter decide that the
safelist mail is spam anyway it's not really your problem as the mail is not
sent from your email address or server. Actually this is the origin of the
name, a safelist is a closed community where it is safe for members to
exchange ads.

The second advantage is quite obvious but many people fail to see this,
what does all safelist members have in common? They have something to
sell, but they have not advanced far enough in their internet marketing
carreer to dismiss a very mundane task as posting to safelist is. That
means that if you have a product, report, ebook, income opportunity etc.
that can help people on the way to internet glory, the average safelist
user is an excellent prospect for you.

Why I will always use safelists

I could probably make do without safelists but I sure wont. Safelist are a
starting point for many newbie marketers and picking those up as
subscribers and customers can be very profitable e.g. they do not own
every product out there and they do not know everything, meaning that
you have plenty of stuff to sell them. You can see this as opposed to
getting *Mike Filsaime* on your list, when your initial giggling wears off
you will probably realize that Mike owns everything you promote and if he
doesn't he will probably create his own version anyway...

Mike Filsaime and safelists

Speaking of *Mike Filsaime* did you know he started his internet
marketing career using safelists? I have listened to several conference
calls where Mike explains how he built a list of *7000* members using
nothing but safelists and that list netted him $7000 a month. In fact Mike
and his "intern" Jason Dinner are still regular safelist user although I
believe they pay people to do the dirty work nowadays...

...imagine that, paying people to do your safelist posting, I'm pretty sure
Jason and Mike don't find safelists useless!

I have to admit that I have finally dipped my big toe into the somewhat murky-seeming waters of safelists

I have just joined a safelist at listjoe.com

Now, I was just a 'free' member but I have just upgraded to a 6 month 'Bronze' membership at $27 a month.

I'm getting around 30 emails a day from ListJoe and by clicking on a certain link within those emails my a/c at LJ earns a differing number of credits per email.. (anything from 5-11 credits per email).

My credit level currently stands at 1210 credits which means I can send 1210 solo 'ads' for my site to other members of LJ.

"So what?" you may think - well, as every email contains this crediting link, you are guaranteed that every email will be opened, so, to get the response I want then I have to ensure that the ad I write is a good representation of that adage "A.I.D.A." - Attention, Interest, Desire, Action.

Have I written one yet? - No, my website is still a work-in-progress as I am currently building a 'mini-net' that has links pointing to the site. Once I have those built, the website built and my offer in place then I'll be sending out my 1st solo ad.

I'll keep you informed of the result.

If I can take this chance to do a bit of self-promotion I would love it if you had a look at ListJoe through this link (yes it is an affiliate link in that I get credits to my a/c if you join (500 credits for free members)) - Many thanks

Well, Howard and Dom,

This safelist thing is all very interesting.  I'll have to take a bit of time to really digest this.

Thank you both. Howard for posting the article and Dom for your take on what you're doing.

Aatos,
Thanks for the guide. I like advertising in some safelist sites, because it's easy to send out your offer to a few thousand and so easy to post your text and html ads, also you can have your banners rotating throughout the sites

Great report.  Does anyone have detailed conversion statistics for specific safelist sites *?*

I know that's a lot to ask, but we're an industry half packed full of testers and tweakers so let's just call it wishful thinking. ;D
