1. Choose a niche (That must be a niche that i'm interested and i know that there are a lot of people willing to pay money for that niche), Then choose a product. (Here i choose from CB)

2. Sign Up Getresponse (I want a Long term fight, so this is a must)

3. Created a squeeze page from Getresponse then put affiliate link in thank you page.

4. Buy my first solo ads ever. 50 Clicks. Boom. Wake up and saw 1 SALE. It Shocked me but positive way

    nice , now three more sales and they CB will pay you ! now if this is the first sale they will send a cheque and you will loose about half on fees as it has to go from the country your in to the bank in there country and back again

    And the banks make the most just letting you know the reality

    Your visitors, were they tier 1? Were they from a buyers list?

    Also, how many subscribers joined your list from the ad?

      My visitors. I did not sure that they were tier 1 or not. Coz at that time i did not use a tracking link. Yes they were from a buyers list. I got at least 20 subcribers joined my list at that time.

      Actually i did not count but at least 20 opt-ins at that time.

      Thank you. Solo ads cost me about $17

      I'm feeling awesome. Because i found what i love to do. Not because that one sale. One sale is nothing. Now my sale is start to growing and more important is that i really love affiliate marketing. It's like NEVER WORK AGAIN!!!!!!

    Hi MM,

    Cool.

    I forget how I made my first $17 But I do recall seeing some profits through using solo ads in the past. Maybe when I did network marketing some 8 years ago.

    Then you've been lucky! Lots of solo ad providers are just pure scam.

    I live it when newbies post things like this. Everyone complains, but you got it right.

    Your first sale is more important than you're thousandth sale because of the mind shift you go through, it will boost your momentum.

    #########

    Now what you should do is create a list of solo ad providers who provide you sales.

    If you're selling your own product, separate your buyers from your freebie seekers.

    At this point your priorities will be 2-fold:

    1. Split test different solo ads using your list of trusted providers, increase the amount odd sales earned per solo.

    2. Survey your list. Ask them what they want and what they are having trouble with. Provide curated content for them with pro-tips, guides, case studies, etc.

    Sell your own products to your list.

    They give you money, you give them leadership.

    Do it right and your develop a symbiotic relationship with your list.

    Keep the momentum going and put more money into testing and tweaking.
    Have enough money and approach a commercial solo ad seller.
    You'll be surprised to know that some solo ad sellers can provide extreme volumes of clicks. Just ask if they provide commercial services.

    So in order to make $17.7, you invested $17, right?

    That means your profit is less than $1, or I am missing something.

    At the same time I should congratulate you as your method is working. If you can cut down the investment, you can make some good profit.

    I remember my first IM sale, it was CPA using PPC traffic. Direct linked to the ad, didn't even capture the email myself.

    Nothing for sale. Just trying to learn and help.

    Awesome job! Keep it up list building + affiliate marketing can be a fantastic living.

    You basically broke even AND grew your business. Most businesses require a loan and go out of business before they are profitable and you technically are in the black already! Great job.

    My first check was having a banner ad at the bottom of my computer called AllAdvantage back in 1999. You got $0.50 an hour for every hour you were online and $0.10 for every hour people you recruited were online down 5 levels. I recruited a bunch of college kids and that's what got me started.

    I bought a decent list rather than solo ads and that seems to paying dividends. You are correct though - make sure you are operating in a decent niche!

      Most people do.

      A lot of that is based on misinformation provided by people trying to sell you something.

    Back in 2008, I made my first online dollar by writing truck accident articles for an attorney. I turned it into a full-time income and it eventually became a full-service marketing agency.

    That's a good start. Now do this.

    1. Tweak your squeeze page. You may need to include benefits to make it more enticing.
    2. Add more supporting content to your website. This will help you solidify your brand even more and make your prospects believe that you are the main source of knowledge in this area.
    3. Try to create your own product for a higher rate of return.

    Best of luck!

    That's how you do it! Build a buyer's list and offer them the next product..

    You never have to pay for SOLO / advertising again when you build your own list..
