Safelist Genie review and some other ranting, promoting, and harping.

When I joined Worldprofit one of the first things they advocate is to promote, promote, promote. One of the primary tools they advocate for promoting is Safelists. By the way, I learned and am still learning a ton of stuff from my WP family. 

At first you have to understand that safelists are a form of email marketing, where advertisers or members agree to receive each other's messages. In exchange, the member earns credits to use to send their message to other members. These safelists use different types of incentives to include paying or earning credits.

As you become more experienced and join more and more Safelists this becomes quite cumbersome. Personally, I have found it to be valuable and very effective in marketing most programs (more on this in a later post). So much so that I have acquired a couple for my own use like GetCashAds.  One of the features for an owner is they can use it to advertise or email the whole membership base. Safelists are a great tool because most people join them to advertise their business, so they are very easy to recruit to as Debbie says at Simple Safelist. If you click the link here you will see three programs being advertised at once, so cool, again I will talk about this in a later post. 

Back to the reason for this post. I have now joined hundreds of safelists and it is hard to manage them in a timely manner. I tried an excel spreadsheet and different downline builders with some success. One of the recommended programs was Safelist Genie. SLgenie is a stand alone software, meaing it is downloaded to your computer then setup to streamline your email folder and safelists. 


SLGenie does not do the manual labor for you. It does not click on any links and if you don't upgrade at the safelist you have to earn credits just like everyone else. 

I joined and upgraded just to prove a point by giving an honest and "educated" review.

I am glad I did, but, I had a hell of a time setting up my email. If I were one of those 20 year olds I would have just youtubed it and been done with it. Here is a great video that proves this point. 




If I had watched the video above, I would not have wasted an hour. There are a lot of features to this site that require time to setup. It required me to spend 2 to 3 hours for a week joining or finding my login information for each of the safelists. Another hour or so setting up my email advertsing and banners.

But........

Once I was up and running it really made a difference. I can send out 100 safelist mailings in an hour where I was doing about 25 an hour individually. Also, when I read emails if I come to one I do not have enough credits for I open the email search for the safelist and start clicking. The messages opens in the browser behind SLgenie and I go read them click on the icon if there is one and collect my credits much faster. 

Safelist Genie does not do the work for you. You still have to signup with the safelists. You still have to enter your advertising in SLGenie. You still have to read the emails and click to earn credit. 

What it does do is put it all in one place. If I need to signup for a safelist my signup information is automatically filled in, send an email, I just pick the template and it auto fills it in, selects the credits you have and you just push the button. It also fills in the downline builders at each site, allows you to add banners directly. 


Download the software for a 14 day free trial. Upgrade if you can, set it up, join all the programs from inside SLGenie (your sponsor gets the credit) and start promoting. You will find it is easier and the clicks to your program keep coming days after you do the marketing. Also, I recommend you upgrade in as many of the sites as you can. It helps streamline your advertising even more because you get more credits and can send your ads to more people. 





Lastly, I really strongly recommend you go to Simple Safelist and read her eBook on "The Plan" it is so brilliant and simple I wish I had thought of it. After reading it you will better understand why you should promote programs like safelists.  Just click here to go directly to her site.
