First off, I do not own any safelist, mailers or traffic exchanges my self, and never have.
I have been using safelist, mailers and manual traffic exchanges for about 12 years now as one of my main traffic sources. They produce over 80% of all my traffic.
Secondly, It is extremely targeted traffic (for those selling anything in the make money online niche)..Safelist, mailers and manual traffic exchanges are chalk full of internet marketers, there are literally tens of thousands of people who use them everyday. Some have member ships that exceed over a million members, and some of those larger ones literally have over 1000 new people join them everyday, 365 days a year.
Thirdly, I get over 10,000 visitors a day to all my offers, without really trying, Safelist, mailers and manual traffic exchanges pay me to use them, and my traffic is residual. Some I have so much traffic available in, that I send it to my personal referrals, because I can not even use it all.
Fourth let me give you some real facts…
1. They are totally free to join and use, with (optional upgrades) and most give out promo codes and out right free credits just for joining.
2. They attract masses of internet marketers because of number 1, I mean who dose not want free traffic or should I say the ability to create free traffic very easily??
3. They give away credits to people for referring other people, and for active referrals surfing.
4. They are referral based. Every member can earn commissions, most even pay commissions to free members on upgraded referrals. If your upgraded yourself, you can earn larger commissions.
5. So here is a traffic source that is never ending, and you have the ability to literally reach tens of thousands of other internet marketers (every day) totally for free, or even get paid to do so…
6. Safelist, mailers and manual traffic exchanges have been around longer then I have been marketing online, so before 2003, because that is when I started using them.
Now back to my point..How to use safelist and mailers Successfully..
1. Only advertise an opt-in page, with an offer that has to do with the make money online niche, if you have a product or service that will help people build more traffic, build their list faster, build better pages, create videos, create membership sites, help them with blogging, a mlm opportunity, Anything to do with internet marketing,etc…Then they will work for you.
But if your trying to sell stuff like shoes or sun glasses, very doubtful.
2. Get good upgrades in the top safelist, traffic exchanges and mailers. Most offer, lifetime, yearly, or monthly discounted upgrades, especially upon first joining or when they are first launching.Example, if you can get a lifetime upgrade in a safelist, lets say for $77.00 (this means you never pay again). And lets say that upgrade lets you mail 3000 people every 48 hours, this means you will send 547,500 emails by the end of the year in that one safelist. Now if this is a top safelist with a good owner, or a new one with a good owner, that safelist will continue to grow, and potentially will be around for years. So as the site grows, the number of people you reach will grow and cost you nothing extra.
3. Multiply your upgrades (best is always lifetime), the example above was only one, lets say you had 20 of these lifetime upgrades. You had a one-time cost and and permanent advertising resource.20 times 3000 is 60,000 emails sent every 48 hours, now take that by every 48 hours, 365 days in a year , and you send over 10 million emails in them a year.Once you learn how to use a safelists or mailers, it only takes maybe a minute per each one to log in and send out your email in each. So lets say a half hour every other day to send out over 10 million emails a year…
4. I ask again, who does not want free traffic? So the last step is to make your safelist and mailers pay you to use them. How do I do this, after taking a lifetime upgrade in any safelist, I then send an ad to my list with my referral link for that safelist. I am an upgraded member, so usually I get 50% commissions. Now many people take me up on the offer and some use it as a free member and others upgrade in it. So lets say I make $250.00 in commissions after sending it to my list. I paid $77.00 one-time lifetime payment to upgrade in it, so I just made $173.00. That safelist has now paid me to advertise my own offers, it cost me nothing, except the time it takes to log in and hit send…Plus my referrals earn me residual traffic credits. Most safelist pay me commissions every month..
Now my last point is..
They absolutely work, you can not argue this, I have built huge list using these traffic sites, and I continue to do so.
Now they may not work in the context like a solo ad does where you buy 100 clicks for $70.00 and you get 30 or 40 immediate opt-ins.
Safelist, mailers, manual traffic exchanges, offer several different online advertising options, because of them I also have over a million banner and text ads running across the internet at all times.
My partner Brenda, started this strategy when she first started marketing online, and after doing this for about two years, she was sending over 200,000 emails a day, thats over 70 million emails in a year…She started one lifetime membership at a time, and took her profits and reinvested them into more. (and believe me she gets results:)
Some lifetime upgrades cost more some cost less then the example I gave, depends on how big, new or old the exchange is..And when they run specials. Well the example I gave you is the best way, lifetimes are always the best choice, you can also do it having monthlies and yearly upgrades…
To see my list of safelist and mailers I use, go to this blog post:
All traffic strategies work, does not matter what avenue you choose, its taking the time to figure out what works with them..Not trying something, I never try something..If you just try something it will always fail, you have to be committed and make it work, otherwise do not bother, you are just wasting your time.
To Your Success In All You Do!
