Opt-in lists, such as safe lists, protect you from complaints about SPAM while allowing you to market your product or services to thousands. The perfect safelist is one that has responsive members that READ their email. These are usually credit-based safelists.
Below are some of the safelists I have used in the past. Safelist marketing is a lot like Traffic Exchange marketing--too much time spent reading or surfing. No guarantee response on these safelists. Try a few and see what works for you.
Make sure you have a huge mailbox for the safelist mail or you will be deactivated by the safelist. You also need a fairly large mailbox for the ADMIN mails and solo ads.
How Safelists Work
When signing up for a safelist, you must provide two email addresses: contact and list. The list owner uses the contact address for admin messages and some paid advertisements. The list address is the repository of all the safelist mail sent by other members. Depending upon your membership level (free or paid), you are able to login and send mail to all or some of the members periodically. You are expected to read your list mail from other members and to keep your list email from bouncing. Some safelists allow you to login and read your emails online.
What makes a safelist responsive? Members who read the safelist eMails, click on the hyperlinks, visit the websites and make purchases or sign up for the advertised program. How do you insure members do this? Give credit where credit is due. The most responsive safelists are usually credit based, which means you must have credits to send email to the list. To receive credits, you must click the links in the safelist eMails, upgrade or subscribe to list owner advertising eMails (also called solo eMails).
Some list owners use their membership base as their advertising resource. The list owners sell Solo Ads to Contact Addresses to earn money. This is fine if you agree and can opt-out of such mailings. However, combined with the trend detailed below, you will see that the only people really advertising to the safelist members are the ones who pay for an upgraded membership or the list owner.
A disturbing trend in safelist marketing in the past has been submitters and blasters, with messages being stored on the server! The marketing by shotgun mailing does NOT work.
Future of Safelist Marketing
The proliferation of bottomless email boxes that claim to be safelist friendly has helped keep safelist marketing viable, despite legislative attempts and the use of filters and lists that almost make safelist marketing impossible.
Can-Spam Act of 2003 - permitted marketers to send unsolicited commercial e-mail as long as it contains all of the following:
If you followed all these rules, your email still has to make it through the following to be delivered to your inbox:
