Key List Marketing is another one of the safelist mailers I use on a regular basis and I have to say I like it. Read on to find out about the many advantages of using this great safelist.
The Best Bits about Key List Marketing
There’s quite a list here so you might have to bear with me (or you could just stop reading, click the image above and sign up now!)
Key List Marketing is one of the few safelists that actually has a PTC (Paid To Click) page. Sadly, there are not that many ads there so don’t join for this reason. It is no ClixSense or Buxvertise, that’s for sure. However, I am one of these ‘glass half-full’ type of people so I look at PTC ads as unexpected bonuses when they appear.
There Are Some Great Weekly Competitions
Next, it has a Top Promoters competition that runs every week. Why I particularly like this is that you don’t have to get any referrals (although it’s great if you do, obviously). No, for this competition, all you have to do is show your link to as many people as possible. Every time someone sees your link, you get two points. If you are the top promoter at the end of the week (Sunday evening/Monday morning), you get a prize. Funnily enough, while I was looking around the site trying to find out what the prize was, I discovered something. You can earn more points for promoting your link on particular sites, which is even cooler. Remember, you don’t have to refer anyone, you just have to show your link.
Another competition that Key List Marketing runs is a weekly jackpot. This is about points as well, but there are many more ways to earn that just promoting. Please ignore the links in the image as they are not active.
Finally, the last thing I like about Key List Marketing is the credits that you earn for each email opened. These start at a respectable 20 credits and increase the more you open. I realise that the point of these safelist mailers is to get us to upgrade. However, I feel much more inclined to upgrade when I feel that the owner is being generous. When I think the owner is being stingy, by giving only a few credits per email, I feel less inclined to upgrade.
The Bad Bits about Key List Marketing
Key List Marketing’s missed credits page is extremely annoying. You get a list of unopened emails. Then, you click on the first subject line and another page opens up (but not the actual email). Then, you have to click on the link in the email and, finally, the email which earns you the credits opens up. Many safelists allow you to go straight from subject line to email, which I think is eminently more sensible.
The other disadvantage of the above is that Google Chrome has a very useful little extension called ‘Linkclump’. This allows you to select multiple links to open at the same time. Okay, this works with Key List Marketing, but the point is that it doesn’t speed up the reading of emails, which is what you want to achieve when using ‘Linkclump’.
Another slightly annoying thing is that you can only open five emails at one time. It’s only a little thing but it slows you down. The difference between opening five and ten, which many safelist sites let you do, is quite surprising. On top of this, the script that Key List Marketing uses sometimes gets a bit confused so that, while you think you have five emails open, Key List Marketing thinks you have six, or even seven, so you will only be able to open three emails at a time!
Finally, if you are into Zubees, you won’t find any here. I collect Zubees all the time, although I have to confess I am not quite sure what to do with them, and if you do too, then you will be missing out.
Remember! It’s All About the Numbers
And that’s it. As with all safelists, it’s a numbers game. If you can stick at emailing to thousands of people every day, knowing that you will only succeed a couple of times, then safelists are for you.
And don’t make the mistake of thinking that ‘only’ a couple of successes a day means it’s not worth doing. If I get a couple of people signing up to my favourite program, TrafficWave.net, every day, I am extremely happy, because it means I’m well on my way to reaching my goal of $88,000 a month!
