About solo ads
So now that you have a product to promote and your funnel is ready. it’s time to send traffic to your funnel!
And what is the best and fastest way to do that? Solo ads!
So, what are solo ads?
Basically, when you buy solo ads, you buy visitors to your website from an email list that was built by seller of solo ads. Usually you can buy packages of 100 up to 10,000 clicks.
You need to know that it will be rare situation when you make money from your first purchase of your solo ads. You should be happy if you get few sales and receive 30 – 50% new subscribers from clicks you bought. After that, you will need to follow those results and scale up. Choose only the best sellers and continue to buy from them.
Biggest mistakes you can make when buying solo ads
Choosing bad/dishonest product
You cannot have long term business if you don’t promote good products that actually help people. Online business can get into something very serious for you very fast. So you want to grow your business promoting products that work and grow a following of you or your brand. This way you will be able to create and promote your product or some product to the same people that get to know you. And you don’t need huge number to make if full time job!
Promoting directly affiliate product without saving emails = No autoresponder
I know that you want to start making money immediately after you join a program. They give you links to promote, squeeze pages look great and you really want to start. But, if you do that, you will loose in the long run. You need to start building your email list from day one. That is the smartest thing to do when you build online business. Your list, if you do things right, will be able to make money for you many years in the future.
If you use Convertkit or Aweber, usually they have automatically turned on double optin. This means that after visitor to your squeeze enters their email, they will need to confirm it by clicking on link on your list. This will drop your optin rate by half. It doesn’t have to be bad thing, and there are times when it’s even better to do that, but when you are starting you should change to single optin and save all the emails without confirmation.
Many of clients that bought solo ad clicks from me made this mistake and they were surprised with very low optin rate, sometime even 10% or less!
Long squeeze page with too many options
The goal of your squeeze page is to collect as many quality emails as possible. That’s why you need to make it as simple as possible, without any links at all. Just a little bait so they get interested in what you have for them, headline and optin form. That’s all you want! Anything more that that will affect your optin rate.
I mentioned before, you need to make them interested in your offer, don’t just say free money fast, now,… This might increase your optin rate, but it won’t help with sales. You don’t want avoid freebie seekers as they are less likely to buy from you.
No follow-up sequence
As I said before, very rarely you will make money with your solo ad. That’s why you need more products in your funnel that are sold using automatic email sequence of 7 – 60 emails or more. That’s what will put you in profit if your products are good quality and if your email sequence is good, too.
No business plan
You need to know where you want to be in 1, 3, 6, 12 and 24 months from now. Do you want to make just a little passive income or you want to make this full time job? Will you start be create value for your subscribers, let them know you, like you and trust you? Will you create products and keep 100% of sales commissions? Make it simple and stick to it!
Things online can be overwhelming and it’s not possible to do everything. Remember Simon. He is creating Youtube videos and promoting to his lists. Make a plan and stick to it!
How to find and buy best solo ads?
Where to find solo ad sellers
You can find solo ad sellers on many Facebook testimonial groups – this one is biggest: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoloAdsTestimonials/. Do your research on this Facebook group. When you are starting out, choose only the sellers that have testimonials with sales. And there should be at least 2 testimonials with sales. This is good indicator that their traffic is good and that’s it’s real. You can never be sure, but in 99% of cases this will be enough.
Also, there are few directories of solo ad sellers, where you can buy solo ads and check out the testimonials, ratings and results of solo ad sellers. Biggest site like that is www.udimi.com. Make sure to find a seller with good ratings and sales in his testimonials.
Another great site that has only proven sellers with great traffic is www.soloadsx.com . If you buy clicks from there, you will get a good traffic, for sure! Test it and see which sellers have the list that works best for your offer.
After you find a solo ad seller using the criteria mentioned above, make sure that he has a sales page. Again, it won’t mean that he is 100% legit, but it will be a good indicator, together with other advice I’m giving you, that the solo ad seller is legit and that he will give you good traffic.
Before buying, contact the solo ad seller on his Facebook profile. Usually, just by using common sense and checking the Facebook profile of seller, you will be able to conclude is it fake or not. Often they will offer discount on your first order, if they don’t ask them about it.
For example, I have:
Solo ads sales page http://solo-ads.biz/
Blog – http://kreshimir.com/
Facebook profile – https://www.facebook.com/kklukovic
Facebook fan page for my testimonials – https://www.facebook.com/Kresimir-Klukovic-Solo-Ads-1668737333143282/
Youtube channel – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCamjJ8p84opemR_agfT2Cqg
I’m not so active on all of those, but I’m easy reachable and it’s impossible to fake all of those!
What to ask the seller
Ask them about T1 %, what is cost per click, when they can start and how long will it take to deliver. How many % they will overdeliver? How they build their list?
Don’t overcomplicate this things. If you did your research in step 1, you’re almost ready to go.
Money saving tip! 🙂
Usually, almost every seller will offer discount on your first order, if they don’t, ask them about it.
What you need to order
When you buy clicks, you will look for at least 80% T1 traffic. Everything below that will hurt your long-term results as most of the buyers are from T1 countries (USA, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand).
I recommend for you to order at least 200 for your first run. This will be enough to get a feeling about the traffic quality. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t enough, but if you are not sure if the seller is legit, is his traffic good for your product, 200 clicks is the best way to start.
How to make sure you got what you paid for
I recommend using Clickmagick for tracking of your results. You need to follow unique clicks and T1 %. You need to create a link in Clickmagick, add your affiliate link inside it and give the tracking link to your seller.
Also, you should track conversions. It’s very easy to do that. All you need to do is add action pixel on your thank you page and you will know exactly how many people opted in to your page.
Also, Clickmagick will recognize many bot clicks and filter them for you automatically.
Of course, there’s always a small chance that someone will send you ‘smart’ fake traffic, but if you follow all the steps I’m giving you here, it will hardly ever happen!
For every purchase you make, you should track:
number of clicks received
% of optins
% of sales you’ve got.
After you send some traffic to your optin page, you will know the average optin rate. So if your average optin rate is 40%, you won’t be happy with 20%. Anything +/- 10% is fine from average.
But in the end, all that matters are sales. If provider of your clicks constantly gives you sales, you will want to keep buying from him, even if he has much lower optin rate than average. Situations like that will happen to you, so don’t give up on sellers with lower optin rates immediately!
For 200 clicks, from my experience and many other people, you should get at least 2 sales of front end product that cost anywhere from $7 to $19.
