How to write ads for Safelist.
Most people do things backwards and fail miserably when they use Safelist. The first thing they do is join a Safelist and start sending out emails. Sending out emails is the last thing you want to do.
Before you send out the first email you want to keep track of the Safelist you are using and when you can mail again.
Next, you want to make sure you have a tracking link so that you can see with every ad or email you use, how it is working.
How long should it take you to set all this up? An hour at the most if you use the places and tools we talked about yesterday.
Once you keep can track of your Safelist and track your ads then it is time to write an ad or find an ad that works. Let me tell you a little secret. The emails that you find in many programs to send to Safelist do not work. Even those emails you have to test.
Now you are ready to start writing your first Safelist email headline.
In Safelist, the headlines you use will make you or break you. Yes, the email improves your conversion, but the headlines get them to the email.
Stop and think about what you do when you open your email account with new emails in it. You first scan the subjects of the emails and decide if it needs your attention or not. If the subject grabs your attention, you open it. If it doesn’t you move one. When someone has hundreds of emails from Safelist in their email account it is all about the subject/headline.
Email Subjects/Headlines are the things that starts the process. If you have a headline that does not work, you do not get results from a Safelist.
Email Subjects/Headlines are like having a short text ad that gets their attention.
So just what is a good Headline?
The best way to find out is to open up your inbox and see what gets your attention.
Create a file and copy and paste the email headline/subject that catches your eye. When you have a few of them look at them and ask yourself why it caught your attention. In each case, it will be because it got you interested to find out more.
So a good email subject/headline has to make the reader want to find out more.
Now this has to be said. Never lie in your headline. These headlines of, “Money Sent to Your Account.” etc. etc. are lies and will kill your business. Don’t do it, it won’t work.
Here are some headlines I use that work very well for me on all the Safelist and in text ads.
