Now that I’m concentrating my efforts on being a full time internet marketer, I simply cannot ignore the huge market and opportunity that safelists offer. After all, there are millions of people out there who are wanting my advertisements in their inbox — and I simply cannot deny them!
I’m taking my adventure into safelists slowly for a couple of reasons. Firstly and most importantly I want to do it the most effective way possible. This will allow me to skip parts of the “trial and error” that comes along with learning anything. I still fully expect some trial and error to happen, and I welcome it. Trial and error is the absolute best method of learning. Why do I say that? Because you not only learn what doesn’t work, you also gain the knowledge of learning why it doesn’t work. This information is invaluable. To quote the famous Tomas Edison..
Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that won’t work.
So, where do you go when you want good information on a subject? You go to one of the leaders in that industry. I sent some questions over to Soren Jordansen. I believe Jon Olson titled him the ‘King of Safelists’, and based on what I’ve learned from being around internet marketing for a little while I can’t disagree with that assertion.
He promptly sent me over to his Ultimate Safelist Survival Guide. I grabbed my copy and eagerly read it. Without venturing too far into safelists yet, this guide has already helped me identify lots of time saving features, some good logic, and some “secrets” that will help me make money later on down the line. It is a quality piece of reading and I already highly recommend it.
I then thought to myself that I should join just a few safelists to get the feel of things. I wanted to join five initially, but so far I’ve only joined three. The three I joined are:
Please note that these are all credit based safelists. From my understanding these are the most responsive types of lists.
Other than clicking a few (hundred) emails sent from each safelist, that is as far as I have gotten. So if you’re not into safelists yet and want to join me on my venture into them — feel welcome! You can come back here to read my progress, results, and what I’m doing to obtain them. If all works out as planned I’ll have a “from beginning to safelist master” blog series.
Oh, I should mention this as a note: The only “advantage” I have over anyone else right now is obtaining my copy of the Ultimate Safelist Survival Guide. This is paid information and I shall not duplicate it or speak of it’s techniques here in my blog.
