Spent money here and there to test out many things.
I've also looked deeply into the buyers and sellers of these so-called solo ads.
For those who don't know, if someone has an email list of 100,000 subscribers, you can buy a solo ad which will be a stand alone email of yours to be sent out to that list of 100,000.
Now to me, it makes no logical sense how anyone can GUARANTEE clicks.
Everyone seems to get their rocks off about guaranteed clicks, pointless leads, or non profitable sales.
What you need to be getting your rocks off on is profitable ROI.
You have no control whatsoever of your list and if they choose to open, or let alone, click the link inside.
You have absolutely no control on that.
You have full control of that list yourself.
After talking to many marketers, the closest any true honest marketer will say, is they have a good estimation on open rate, and possible clicks.
None of them ever send out an email to their list knowing they are going to get even one click.
They only have an assumed estimation.
Places like Udimi.
Don't waste your money.
You'll get clicks. You'll get leads that are useless. Depending on how much and often you spend, you might get a sale or two.
Just not enough to make a profit.
Let's paint that picture.
You: $500 solo ad budget
Me: Selling 1,000 clicks for $500
$0.50 per click. Not bad at all.
If I send your "solo ad" to my list of a million subscribers (supposedly)
I some how magically know that you'll get 1,000 clicks.
Because I'm a phsychic and all....
But we'll take it one step further.
Because you spent so much. I also know that you are selling a $47 product, with an upsell to another product for $197.
I go to my circle of scammy Solo ad sellers (more on this later)
I say I need a purchase of a product with the upswell.
The other party uses a system like HideMyAss, purchased your product and upsell, and you're happy ass hell.
- You paid for 1,000 clicks.
- You received a fair amount leads. Say, 200 leads. +$1.00 per lead.
- you also get one sale + an upsell. For a total of close to $250 (you can do the math for exact numbers....)
You walk away only having spent a little over $250 + plus a bunch of "leads". (More like dead end leads)
You think you scored pretty good buying the 1,000 leads for only $500, which only cost $250 after your sales.
And as for me... I walked away with:
- $250 in my pocket.
- You'll leave a glowing review for others to take part in my scam.
It's all smooth sailing for me and my fake clicks, leads, and sales.
So there you have it. Any real person with a real list cannot guarantee clicks.
Places like SelfGrowth.com or ArcaMax who have solo ads for $1,500 - $3,000 will NEVER
**Wait, I want to make sure you read that**
Places like SelfGrowth.com or ArcaMax who have solo ads for $1,500 - $3,000, will NEVER EVER at any point in their sales process, guarantee you clicks.
Because no really marketer with a real list can ever guarantee clicks.
Oh yeah, and if you look into the reviews of people on Udimi, you'll quickly see how those glowing reviews are from fellow solo ad sellers.
It's like a carnival and all the Carnies are backing everyone up to rip you off of your money.
What are your thoughts?
Maybe some folks who have extensive knowledge can put in some information about how one can guarantee the control of what their subscribers do on the other end of the internet.
