How To Write Headlines For Safelist

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.

8 Ways To Quit Being Broke?

I Need Your Advice Please

This Will Make You Laugh

And one of the headlines that works best for me is

Can You Believe This I Can’t

So write out 5 headlines that if you saw it you would open the email.

Tomorrow we will look at them and talk about what words to use and not use.

If you want an example of good Safelist emails that work, go to   Your Eight Steps and look in the Affiliate Tool Box under Step 1 You will find emails and email subjects. I have tested each of those emails and headlines, and they work. I will let you guess which one you think works the best and I will tell you tomorrow.

  • Tomas Adison says:

    I would like a headline that states: “Quick, you will regret if you do not open it”, do you think this headline holds potential?

  • Cool, loved this post……..would follow the instructions.

  • Bree Roman says:

    I liked the examples you shared, but don’t you think “Can You Believe This I Can’t” has been over used? I see it everywhere.

  • Joyce Gowdy says:

    How about a headline ” I bet you didn’t know it’, do you think it will work?

    • botipton says:

      “I bet you didn’t know this” might work better but yes it would probably work. Always test it and see. Some that I thought were great did nothing and simple ones that I thought would not work got me a lot of traffic.

    Are you ready for this?? Great headlines make or break your email program. If nobody clicks, nobody buys. Good idea to check your in box for effective headlines. I also do the same by searching various blogs. I like to look for unusual way that key action words are used in story titles, subheads, etc. The web is a terrific school master.

  • Derek says:

    I get so many emails that I rarely see a headline that makes me want to click and find out more! In the past I would read many emails but with time, I probably became immune to all sorts of headlines and advertisements.

    This doesn’t mean that everyone does the same, but it does raise the question “How many people still open emails from strangers?” This is why it’s even more crucial that your headline makes people curios about the content of the email. Your tips are spot on and I also like your headline ideas which I will test out for myself. Thanks!

  • John Robert says:

    Thank you for the tips! I somehow agreed with you. People are most likely would open mails that have interesting headlines. Even I, myself will do the same. And yes, you can never lie in your bussiness. Thank you anyway, you got myself clear now.
