Hello Safelist and Viral Mailer Marketers,
Today I want to give you some tips and tricks I use to maximize my use of Safelists, Viral Mailers and Solo Ad Sites.
First let me say that I use these types of site on a daily basis and I get good results from them, but they MUST be used properly to get maximum results.
Almost all of the sites I use are the credit based sites. You earn credits by clicking the link in the email so that you can sent to the list with your earned credits. For most of these sites it is a 1 to 1 ratio. I credit used per member emailed.
The #1 MISTAKE people make is long drawn out emails that go on for days! DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME, NOBODY WILL READ IT!!! Most users of these site are just looking for the credit link at the end of the email and you will actually tick them off if they need to scroll and scroll to get to that link.
KEEP IT SHORT AND TO THE POINT! Don’t give away to much information. You don’t want them to make a decision about you offer based on your email. You want to pique their intrest so the will click the link and go to your sales page. A very good friend of mine once told me a very import sales concept. “Sell the sizzle not the steak!”
Many of these sites allow html emails. USE IT! I like to use
Bold, Colorful, Large Type.
Catch their attention! I also avoid images as many people and email servers block images. Plus it will slow down your load time.
I am an upgraded member of Viral Mail Profits and I use this site to send 95% of my list sites. This is an incredible platform that will store all of you list sites, ad copy, and statistics in one location. Plus, they have a wonderful browser add on called Ulti-Send that will save you a huge amount of time using these sites.
Let’s move on to how to maximize your credit earnings so that you can send your ads to the members of these lists.
If you don’t already have one get a Gmail account. This is the best email server for safelists because of its large capacity to receive email and very low bounce rate. Many of these sites require a gmail account. I set up filters in my Gmail account so that each different list goes to it’s own folder
Turn on the shortcut keys. When you open one of your folders and click on an email you can advance to the next email by just clicking on the J key. This really speeds up going to the next email.
If your mouse has a middle scroll wheel, when you move your curser over a link and click the wheel the link will automatically open in a new tab. This is not just for emails it works on all links. TRY IT HERE!
I like to open 10 emails at a time then go through them to click the credits links.
I also use handy tool call Quick Tab Change to move to the next tab with the click of one button on your keyboard. When you open the app there are several keys to choose from for the tab advancement.
I hope you find these tips useful and time saving.
To Our Mutual Success,
