Here are some free safelists email marketing tactics that I use within my business. I hope that some of them can help you with your online business.
I know that there are a lot of people who have tried marketing with safelists and list builders and say that they do not work. I have found this to be both true and false, but I still use safelists and list builders to this day. Old habits die hard I guess.
The only difference is now I let them work for me and not the other way around. If you are not sure how safelists are used or what they are, you can read this post.
Free Safelists Email Marketing
The trick with free safelists email marketing is to make sure that you do it with the intent to get as much information out there as you can.
30 000 or more emails a day is ideal. Even so, you may only end up with a 0,5 to 2 % click-through rate, depending on your offer. The secret to getting results is like any other type of internet marketing – numbers, but in this case more of them.
Unfortunately, it is not worth the time and effort it will take you to rack up those credits each day, as you have to read literally hundreds of emails. Unless, of course, you have paid memberships with a couple of the good sites.
I spend the majority of my time when I am not running a dance school building up my websites and working toward my own financial future, but safelists are a great tool to build your lists on autopilot if you know how. When you join a list builder or safelist for the first time, they normally offer a really good deal that is never offered again. If it is a once-off payment, it may be a good idea to take it, as it will save you hours of work each month.
A word of warning, though, check that you only spend money on reputable sites, and not fly-by-night ones. I only ever spend money at the sites that I know have been going for years with owners that take care of their websites and their customers.
If you can’t afford to take out some upgraded memberships, I strongly recommend that you take out at least one membership to this site. Referral Frenzy is a great tool that allows you to send out emails to over a hundred different list builders. You can also schedule your emails to go out at later dates which is a great time saver.
Another time-saving tool that I use is Traffic Zipper.
This allows you to send out mail automatically to all your sites each day on autopilot which is a great free safelists email marketing tactic. The best thing about this tool is you can set and forget it, and your leads come in on autopilot.
What Should I Advertise On Safelists?
The sad fact is that most people who advertise on safelists and list builders are just using them to promote their own products and not because they want to read what you send out to them.
So now you find that if you advertise your primary business, you get a really low opt-in rate.
The best thing to advertise is either more ways for your readers to advertise or save time with their advertising. These sorts of products work well on safelists because everyone is looking for new ways to advertise.
The other sort of advertising that works pretty well for me is to set up a capture page. That way you can collect email addresses and then you have the opportunity to email interested parties more often from your autoresponder.
Here you will need a good eye-catching squeeze page where you offer something of value to your readers in exchange for their email addresses. Once you have them on your list, then you can educate them on your other products or offers.
If you have an ebook, use one that is related to either advertising, getting more traffic, or internet marketing. In this way, you will get more opt-ins. It is no use offering an ebook on knitting for example on these sorts of sites, as the advertisers here are only looking at things that will help them to make more money online.
Which Safelists Are Good?
Your safelist marketing tactics can only be good if the safelist and list builder sites you use are also good, and there are people on them that will read about what you have to offer.
Using safelists and mailers is probably one of the worst options when it comes to advertising online, but it is cost-effective, and if you find a way to get the numbers out there you may just hook some prize fish. Using safelists is a great way for beginners to get their feet wet without throwing money at paid adverting before they are experienced.
If you find a page that converts really well for you, you know what type of marketing you need to do to attract your customers. Only experience allows you to figure this out for yourself, so using free platforms is a great way to test your marketing prowess.
