Safelists:How it Works

So what are safelists?
A safelist is quite simply somewhere you write an email and send it out to all the members of that safelist. In return you will receive emails from other members of the list so you can think of it as an exchange of emails that promote your product of affiliate link.

So how does a safelist work?
First you will need to sign up to a safelist (with 100,000′s to choose from you will have no trouble with this step)
to signup to a list you will need two email accounts, YOU SHOULD ONLY USE GMAIL accounts as they will work with all safelists, email accounts like yahoo,aol,virgin,bt and so on will not be accepted by most lists.

Why do you need two email accounts?
One of your email accounts is called contact email and the other is called list email,
First gmail account is for the list to get in contact with you about offers and upgrades special discounts and so on and the second gmail account will be list email where the other members of the safelist will send their offers to you.

DO NOT USE your personal email accounts as you will recieve 100′s and 1000′s of emails to these list email accounts, go out and set up new mail accounts just for your safelist work.

Once you sign up you will be asked to confirm both your contact and list email accounts and once you have done this you will become an active member of the safelist you have signed up to.

Now your active what are the next steps?
one quick tip to remember is that each list has a place where you can enter a promo code, here you can get huge bonus’s and credits…. Always put in the code ” newmember or new member ” as sometime this will get you quite a few free credits.
once you are ready to send out an email you will find “mailer or credit mailer” and follow the guidelines sites can change a little but they are very much the same.

SUBJECT — enter the subject of your email

BODY — The main text of the email you are sending

URL — Where you want the person reading to go to when they click you link

next it will say send to Number of members– just use your credits to send your message to the members of the list its very easy to see what you need to do at this point as they will show you each step on the site.

So you have sent your first email out to members of the list but whats next?
Well you will have a set time frame to be able to send another message and each safelist is different, could be 48hours up to a week before you can sent another email out.

Right how to you get credits without having to pay out loads of money to upgrade?
Very simple you go to your list email account and start clicking on the email that other members have sent out with the credits they have..
So open your email account and scroll down to where it will say CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR CREDITS FOR THIS EMAIL, something like that, once you click the link you will need to normally wait 10seconds to gain credits.
You can then build up 100′s and 1000′s of credits ready to use on your next email out to members.

So thats how a safelist works you gain credits for reading thought your emails then with the credits you gain you send email with your products and affiliate links to the other members.

Most safelists are very helpful and will guide you with the steps it takes to start using them.

So with signing up to just one safelist it could take a very long time to wait to send out your second email, that’s why if your serious about using lists like these signup to as many as you can, that’s what i do, i have a list of about 100 safelist that i use and most of them you will get free credits just for signing up, so take full advantage of this fact.

So you know how to use safelists but the big question is still do they work?

I now get lots of sign ups to all my affiliate links and I’m talking everyday signups not just 3-4 a week, some days even 10plus..
For something that is free to use that is a great result.

So in a nutshell safelists really do work and work very well, but you need to use them for the right programmes and anything that’s under $30 seems to be a good line to stay under.

The other thing you will need to do to get good results is to use alot of them, with so many credits being offered to you to sign up to a new safelist why stick to just 4-5, get out and use as many as you can get the free credits, upgrade to the best ones on offer and send emails outs to cheap programmes and even free programmes.

One subject that works real well on safelists has to be traffic, and of course signups. If you promote a programme that offers traffic, advertising, promotion these all work very well, remember people that use safelists are looking for more signups to their links and more traffic to their sites.
