New to Internet Marketing? What are Safe lists?

New to Internet Marketing?

You may have looked around IM Faceplate and Saw
Links to Safe lists, Text Ad Exchanges, and Other Advertising places
You may ask what the difference is between them?

I personally use Several different Advertising types but the majority of the time, I use Safe lists and Text Ad Exchanges for my Advertising Needs.

Safe lists are spam free email marketing. The members are double opt in
and all members agree to receive emails from other members.

The Safe lists I join, are the Credit Based Safe lists - Members Earn Credits to send their Ads to other members.
I prefer Safe list ProX type Safe lists, as most of the other types of Safe lists have submitters attached to them and are not as responsive!

Safe lists offer Several Membership types:
Most of them are Free to Join
Free Members usually have to Read more Emails and Click the Credit
Links inside the emails to earn points. With the Safe list PorX type you view the Website for X amount of Seconds to receive Your Credits. Each Safe list Varies as to the length of the timer.
Usually Free Members can only send an Ad to Other Free Members to the list and Only allowed to Send once every 3-5 days.

Some Safe lists also have a Standard Mailer- which has NO Credit Links inside the emails to earn Credits- I personally do not Like these types  and Your Email box is full of Unwanted Emails with No Credits. (If you belong to this type of List, then you will want to set up filters to separate the credit emails from the standard mailer emails).
I have all of my safe lists set up so that the Standard Mailer is Removed and only have the Credit mailers for our members to use. This keeps the list more responsive in my opinion
and keeps the mail to a minimum, and Active members who are reading other members ads are sending out and being rewarded for their efforts.

Pro Membership:
Some Safe lists when they open their doors give Free PRO memberships away to X amount of members to get their lists Started. Pro Members can mail to other pro members and Free members. This gives you a bigger membership base to mail to.
They usually can mail to the list more often then the Free members and they also Earn Higher Credits per Email/Credit Link Viewed.

Executive Members:
In some Safe lists this is the top level membership and can mail to All members to the list .
They  usually can mail 2-5 emails a day and in most sites can mail daily or every 2 days.
This is far more responsive as you reach more members and get your Ads out more often.

A person usually has to Read an Ad or See a Website Several Times Before they join, so the more you can mail out, the better chance you have for people to join or purchase your product!

Some sites also provide their Executive Members with Monthly Solo Ads as a bonus
These are the Safe lists I love to belong to!
A Solo Ad is sent out to the Contact Email Address where they  have a Far better chance to be Read, plus they also give the members Higher Credits for Viewing the website. So members like to click these emails as they build their credits up faster than viewing members ads that go to their subscription/list email address.

Safe lists require a Contact Email Address- for Admin emails/updates and Solo Ads to be sent. They also Require a 2nd Email Address: Subscription/list email address: where all members ads are sent and for some Safe lists they send out List Solo Ads.

Be Careful when you do purchase Solo Ads as some Safe lists Sell List Solo Ads which are lower priced and do not Receive as many views as they are sent to the subscription /list email address NOT the Contact Email Address where Solo Ads are sent. They still provide more click rates then a regular member ad does but Solo Ads receive a lot more clicks/views
and are more responsive. So Read Carefully as to what you are purchasing.

Some Safe lists have Top Level memberships that Receive NO Members Ads, so no emails are sent to the subscription/list email address at all.. The only emails this membership receives are Admin updates and Solo Ads.
This is an Awesome membership as they provide their Top Level membership More time to Advertise and not worry about  the Emails and Clicking for Credits! This membership usually also receives monthly credits and monthly solo Ads with your membership so it provides you with Excellent Advertising at a low cost. These Safe lists give you More Bang for your Buck and Save you lots of Money and Time!

Safe lists also provide their members with Banner and Text Advertising.
The banners rotate around the site and in Some Safe lists they rotate on each click link when viewing a members Ad and clicking for credits. Some safe lists do not have this set up, but I love the ones that do as it gives the members more exposure to their banners! In a Safe lists members do not receive credits for Clicking on Banners or Text Ads!
Where in Text Ad Exchanges members DO Receive Credits for viewing All types of Advertising. I will write another Article about Text Ad Exchanges soon.

I hope this Article helps give you a better understanding of how the Credit Based
Safe lists work and the different types of memberships available.
Best Wishes to Your Success

Good article. I have used safe lists off and on for many years. There are some tricks, which helps you with time clicking for credits. Using multiple tabs. This won't work with IE. I use firefox.

I love the article Dee. But personally I have not found a responsive safelist yet. I usually end up with lots of emails in my inbox and I do not have time to click through all of them. So oI would rather usr TE's for now.

I really like your article Dee. I use safe-lists and traffic exchanges. I have labels and filters set up for my safelists but I would like to know how you filter out the standard mailings. If I ask nicely maybe you could send me a little instruction in setting this up in gmail? Thanks Dee, Great article.

This was helpful.Also, make sure not to use your contact email address,when subscribing or your contact email inbox will rapidly fill up with emails. Then you will have a hard time finding emails you need to read on a daily basis-friends,relatives, the like. stevesam
