Safelists are slightly different than mailing to your opt-in list, primarily because these people don’t know you and thus…don’t trust you…yet. But, that can change. The trick is to know how to reach these people.
But first thing’s first…What are safelists?
A safelist is a list of individuals who, simply by being members of the list, have permission to email each of the other members of the list. The number of times they can email vary from list to list. Some lists allow you to email the other members daily, others only allow you to email once a week. So unlike your personal opt-in list that you can email any time you like, safelists have limitations.
Having said that, safelists, when used properly, can bring in a nice monthly income at no cost…something that you can’t do with your own opt in list if you’re using a service like Aweber or Get Response.
The key to making safelists work is to find safelists that are responsive. There aren’t a lot of them, but here is a short list of the best safelists online.
GOT SAFELIST NETWORK
You can’t get any better than these. However, please don’t get the idea that this is a plug ‘n play system. Communicating with safelist members is an art…one that has to be learned.
I’ve spent over 5 years mastering it and I’m going to share all my secrets with you here.
First thing is first. If you’re hawking acne cream, forget it. Safelists aren’t going to do you any good. The people who join safelists are income opportunity seekers. They are interested in one thing and one thing only…making money online.
That’s the hot button you have to push. The question is, how do we push it? You don’t want to come off as a slick talking salesman. You need to give them something that has value, just like your list. The only difference is, these people are strangers, so you can’t communicate with them in quite the same manner.
For one thing, they’re not expecting content from you, so certain approaches that work with your opt in list won’t work as well with safelist members.
What I have found to be the best method for reaching safelist members is the offer, especially if it’s a free offer.
So what I am going to do is now reprint here my most successful safelist emails. These are the ones that end up building my opt-in list and ultimately making my sales. I have never shared these with anybody else…ever.
Here they are.

Email 2: Subject - Blowing The Lid Off The Lies Of The Internet
After 5 years of earning a living online, I thought it was time that somebody blew the lid off of all the lies that have been spread by those who are only looking to make a buck off of unsuspecting folks who are just trying to earn an honest living from home.
Below is a link where you can get my FREE report, "Blowing The Lid Off The Lies Of The Internet." That's right. It won't cost you anything and it just might save you a ton of grief if you're trying to run a home business.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by reading this report.

Email 3: Subject - 30 Niches Completely Researched...Handed To You On A Silver Platter
Let me just cut right to the chase.
If I could save you countless hundreds of hours in finding proven profitable niches, would that be worth five minutes of your time?
I spent the better part of those hundreds of hours looking for niches that would be easy to break into because of very little to ZERO competition, and thus easy to monetize.
I came up with 30 of these niches. They're all fully documented with a proven product to sell or several proven products. Promotional methods are also laid out in the simple step by step fashion. The demand is there and the competition is very little.
The amount of time you'll have to put into these is minimal.
I am 100% sure that using any ONE of these niches, you will make an easy income online.
Okay, so why am I giving them away after putting in all this work?
Well, for starters, I'm not giving them away. I'm not that crazy. And if you're wondering what it would cost for somebody to research 30 niches for you, you're looking at $3,000 per niche or close to $100,000.
And that's IF you can even get anybody to do this for you.
Niche research is one of the closest guarded secrets as it is.
But handing over a niche fully researched???
NOBODY is going to do this for you...except me.
But why? Why don't I just keep them to myself and monetize them myself if they're so great?
That is a fair question and I'm going to give you an honest answer.
I don't have the time.
I'm already running a very time-consuming number of businesses. I'm a copywriter, author, marketer and a number of other things, and I just don't have the time to start taking these niches...as good as they are...and using them. And the last thing I want is to let them go to waste.
So I am selling a limited number of these packages at an insane price. I'm not going to tell you how many packages or the price. For that, you're going to have to go to the website below.
But I promise you this much. If you grab a hold of this package...which will be gone very soon, I assure you, you're going to have something that is truly unique in an industry that has become accustomed to putting out so much crap and so much rehashed garbage that I am sometimes ashamed to be associated with it. That's why I came up with Niche Research Revolution. It's probably my greatest product, and I've made quite a few good ones. This one I'm truly proud of.
Therefore, in order not to devalue it, this is a limited release at this low price. After so many units are sold, the price goes up considerably. That's a fact you can count on.
There you have it. So if you want to get a product that has done practically all the work for you (yes, you will have to do some on your own) then you don't want to miss this, that is unless you really DO want a truly push button business (which doesn't exist). In that case, save yourself the time and don't go to the site. This is for serious people who realize that what I have done is most of the work and certainly all of the hard work.
This is the site
It truly is one of a kind.
If you have any questions at all, you can send me an email from the site itself.
This isn’t a free offer but read the copy, especially the subject. This email is one of my best sellers for a very small niche. Please take your time to really go through this email. There is gold in it.

My Secret Articles
It’s my shortest email and also my most effective. This email has gotten me thousands of subscribers. Do you understand why this works? It is making a VERY bold statement, saying it knows why the prospect isn’t making any money online. Truth is, anybody who actually reads this probably ISN’T making any money due to the nature of the people who use safelists.
That’s why this is so effective.
Again, if you’re not in the “make money online” niche, you’re not going to get any results from safelists so don’t waste your time. But if you have any kind of B2B offering such as web design, copywriting, and so on, you’ve got a good shot at making sales through safelists IF you use the techniques I’ve outlined above.
