3 tips for using free credit based safelists


Be Sociable, Share!

Free traffic websites like credit based safelists are powerful ways to advertise, especially if you aren’t good at getting website traffic.

I don’t really like doing stuff like writing articles, SEO, link building, social bookmarking, adwords, and all those other “traditional” traffic methods. Don’t get me wrong, they work, but those methods aren’t quite for me.

I got my start thanks to free traffic websites and I’ve discovered secrets from some of the best in the business.

In case you don’t know what a credit based safelist is, it is basically a membership website where you exchange emails with other members. When you sign up, you get to email other members. And in exchange, they get to email you. Members have an incentive to read your emails because they earn credits for viewing your website.

Today I’m going to share with you my stupidly simple formula for successful advertising at credit based safelists.

What do I mean by successful? I mean anywhere from 5-20 signups or opt-ins every time I send out my mailings.

So here’s the basics of it…

First, you need to build your mailing list. They either need to be signing up at your websites or on a professional autoresponder like Aweber. This is the key, because once someone is on your mailing list, you can email then whenever you want. Is there a new program you want to tell them about tomorrow? 3 months from now? If they are still on your list, you can tell them about it!

It’s like having cash on demand.

Second, you need to track your advertising. You need to know where you are getting your sign ups from. It’s not enough to just mail randomly to every safelist. I know exactly where I get my sign ups from, so I don’t waste my time at programs that don’t produce results.

For example, there are a couple of safelists where I could spend over an hour clicking for credits, but it only gets me about 1 sign up per mailing. In that time, I could click for credits at several programs that get me much better results.

But wait, couldn’t you just join the programs with the most members? Membership numbers don’t always equal results. The most important thing you want to know about is activity, and tracking your advertising helps you gauge that information.

And since you’re here, I’ll give you some real insider info. There’s a few programs that outright LIE by inflating their membership numbers. I won’t call them out by name, but sadly they are out there.

If the 3 reasons above aren’t reason enough to track your advertising, I don’t know what is. =)

Finally, use squeeze page or splash pages for your credit link URLs. Here’s an example:


What you want is a short page, that quickly explains or gets the interest of the member. Think of it like a billboard. It doesn’t have to have fancy graphics like I showed you above. I’ve seen some squeeze pages that look “unprofessional” but pull in tons of opt-ins.

If you just follow these 3 tips, you’ll find your results at credit based safelists explode. Let’s get an action plan set up for you:

Step 1) Sign up for an autoresponder so you can build your list. One of the best in the business is Aweber:

    Glad I could help Kevin!

    In my opinion an autoresponder is an absolute must have. Get one as soon as you can so you can start building your list.

    One of the biggest mistakes I made starting out was not building my list from the beginning. 🙂
