Well Tommie,

 

If your aim is to build your email opt-in list, then both will

serve very well in fulfilling that objective.

 

I must admit though that viral mailers have the advantage

(sometimes real, mostly theoretical) of offering referral

benefits. If only those signing up had good promotional

skills they would be a killer! lol

There are exceptions, but in my opinion, safelists are better for paid solos, and viral mailers are better for every day mailing and also for login ads.

I've considered them the same thing for quite some time, just different names for the same thing... what in your opinion makes a safelist different than a viral mailer?

- Viral Mailer are all credit based.

- Most Viral Mailer don't request 2 email address (Contact and List).

I'm in the same camp as Darren.  The differences are so small and they both perform the same function so I just

considered a Viral Mailer an updated version of a Safelist.

A few of the big safelists converted to the LFMVM mailer script (updated?) and I deleted my accounts in them because of it

 

I think much of the classification we use does have to do with the script type though.

 

Before LFMVM came along, I had three categories in my bookmarks - List Builders, Safelists and TAEs. And I had a system with using them. Then LFMVM started and I had (and still have) a bookmark called "New script mailers", which has swelled to huge by now  :rolleyes:  

 

I've always viewed these differently, and always gone to my "List builder" file first for larger campaigns (even though many of the sites in there would probably be called viral mailers in other peoples classifications) :lol:

Hi,

 

I like both because

 

Safe lists,

 

1.In safe list you will send more mails by one time for Example In Global Safe list you will send mail to 5000 Members at one time

 

2.You Will win cash prizes for reading mails

 

Viral Mailers

 

1.You will get daily weekly and monthly rewards

Both safelists and mailers have their advantages and disadvantages...but in the long haul, best to include both of these in your marketing strategy.

I have been using safe lists for years and now I have added many viral mailers.  I do not see any difference.  I don't care what you call them.  If you are getting results, then keep doing it  :)

Viral mailers for me... just need 1 email to get started, not to much junk.. little less people to reach as a safelist.. but much better for me!

I've tried both and noticed no real differences in either one.

there is no difference, they are all safelists. Viral mailers arent "viral" in the true definition of that word. I still to this day dont know why its called that. Mailer and safelist terms have been the same thing for I guess 15+ years now... They are both used for the same thing - a safelist which was the orginial word.

 

It doesnt matter if it asks for a contact email along with a safelist email - thats not new at all.

Someone told me that a couple years ago, that it set it apart somehow. No, not new, and not correct.
