If you have done any type of marketing online chances are you probably heard of safelists, and how they can help you grow any business online. Some people believe that safelist marketing is dead and ineffective, but it has proven time after time to work very well.
So what exactly is a “safelist,” and how do you use it?
A safelist is an email list you can join for free, and in return for joining you are allowed to email out to the entire list of members that join. Usually most safelists have different levels of memberships you can join at, and each different level will allow you to email more members more often.
The best types of safelists to join are ones that are credit-based. Joining a credit-based safe list makes sure members visit your website, because in order for them to mail out they must earn credits. The only way to do this is by clicking on links to your website in the emails that are sent out.
Using Safelists To Get Traffic to Your Website
Mailing to the list is one thing, but in order to get the best result you must know when and how to mail to it. Some of your mailings will do better then others, but if you mail to a safelist at the right time they will all do well.
The best time to mail to a safe list is either early in the morning, or late at night. This is when most people are checking their email, and more likely to see your email and read it.
Not all emails will get the same response. However the most responsive emails for safelists are ones that offer free stuff, and lead people to a lead capture page. Some things you can give away for free are software programs, ebooks, and free reports just to name a few.
