What Is A Safelist?

A “safelist” or “viral mailer” is an online service that provides a platform for people to promote their products or services and build their brand. 

Safelists allow members to send emails to one another and to receive emails from other members. When you join a safelist service you are in effect giving the other members permission to mail you without having their emails flagged as spam.

Safelist websites are often used by Internet marketers to reach potential customers and build their email lists.

Credit-based Safelists

Credit-based safelists require members to accumulate and use credits to post emails to the members.

Typically, credits can be bought, or earned by upgrading your membership. However, the most common way to accumulate credits is to click a link in other members’ emails and then click a credit button on the landing page (usually after a countdown timer has reached zero).

The ability to earn credits by clicking links inside other members’ emails provides an incentive for members to open safelist emails and “click through” to your landing page. While they are waiting for the credit timer to count down they will be exposed to your message and if it resonates with them, they will opt in to your mailing list to get more information.

In my experience, working with credit-based safelists can be a cheap (or even free) and effective way to add subscribers to your email mailing list.

All the best,
