      $.53 per click?

      You probably need to charge half that to start getting some business / testimonials.

      What is your site URL?

        My website will be www.kathyrosssoload.com but I have not designed my own website yet. And I am not a scammer as you think I am. I don't have email list as I am trying to find emails list but I don't know where to find and to pay for my list.
        First of all, I am a buyer to buy Solo Ad from somebody for now to run their ads for now till I set up my own Solo Ad business. But I want to know if I am doing the right thing to do as my first step??
        Regarding my website, I don't know how to design my site as I am trying to learn how to do it.
        Anyway, during the past years, I have joined Udimi, Solo Ad Marketplace and a few others to set up the prices and etc but the problem is that I still don't know how it works and to make money. In my own heart, I really want to be a Solo Ad seller/vendor so much.
        I do hope that one of you give me a list of what I should do for my Solo Ad business. As to be a Solo Ad business is my "second" job. I have a full time job working at U.S. Office of Personnel Management for 7 months. I am doing this for a living. I need to make an extra money... for a living. I hope you can help me with a list of how it works for me. Thanks!

        I am selling $0.53 for 100 clicks with 90% Top Tier 1. I don't have my own squeeze page that you need to give me yours and I will run your ad for you.

        Okay, how much do I need to charge half that to start getting some business / testimonials?
        I don't have new subscribers of my own yet. Because I don't know where I can get new subscribers coming from. Can you help and give me an advice?

        Thank you!

        Hi,

        This thread is a bit old but a quick question to both veterans.

        If you start selling solo ads with success this means you are sending "offers" daily to your list so wouldnt your list (subscribers) start lossing trust in you and your list start devaluing over time?

        Yes you can select your solo ad buyers and see if their offers are in the same niche and have any value to your list but most dont do this. What normally happens IMO is that your list starts getting bomb with offers daily and some unscribe others just ignore the emails.

        I understand that your gaining new subscribers every day and building your list at the same time your selling but by logic wouldnt the older leads that just ignore your emails start to affect the quality of your list?

    The solo ad business is full of frauds and scam artists. A new solo ad seller has to build trust and prove he is not a scammer.

    Pick out some of the trusted solo ad sellers and contact them. Offer to send them a good amount of clicks for free in exchange for a testimonial, IF YOUR TRAFFIC PROVES to be of quality.

    Once you can prove your traffic is quality and not full of bots or of piss poor quality, you can start charging for your clicks.

    The solo ad industry is not like it was several years ago. But, it's still a great business to be in if you can PROVE you have a quality list.

    I used to sell solo ads a few years ago and was making really good money from it.

    But now, there is a lot of saturation in the market.

    Every day, 100+ people join the solo ads selling business.

    Also, selling solo ads should not be your main business model.

    Focus on making sales with your leads first, then sell solo ads after you have made sales.

    This way, selling solo ads becomes less important as you have already made your profit from with your leads.

    What is your current list size and the maximum number of click you can deliver?

    First, nobody has called you a scammer. What was said is the solo ad industry is full of scammers. That makes it hard for a new seller to make sales at first. They have to prove they have good leads.

    Now as far as building your list. Create a squeeze page and then buy solo ads from others for a start.

    Build websites and start getting them ranked in the search engines. Then funnel that traffic to your squeeze page.

    Purchase paid ads to build your traffic.

    You have a lot of work to do. So get busy.

      Okay, thanks for the instructions!!

      Where can I make my own squeeze page from? I already have my own Solo Ad website but I have not designed it yet as of I need help to have somebody to design it for me. I will hire and charge a person who is willing to do this for me. I will take care of the funnel emails and subscribers but where can I find it from? Can you give me a list now? So I will take care of the rest ASAP. Yeah, I know what you mean about the scammers. (Sigh)!!

      Thanks,

        It sounds like you need to stop what you are doing and start learning step by step. You have a lot to learn. Don't try to learn it all at one time. Also don't go looking for the big red easy button. That always just cost you time and money.

        The first step you need to learn is how to create a website. Do some searched on your favorite search engine and start learning that first. I'm sure you can find some courses on websites for beginners on Udemy.

        After you learn that, then and only then should you move on to learning exactly what email marketing is and how it is used.

        Next, you then learn how to build a email list. This would include squeeze page design.

        Next, learn how to drive traffic to your website and squeeze page.

        NOW, and only after you have learned the above, start learning about the solo ad business.

    How are you selling clicks?

    You don't have a site, you don't have a list, you don't have a clue how the business works.

    Are you brokering someone else's clicks?

          There are many places to purchase email lists. Google is your friend. "Purchase email lists." About 9,800 results (0.38 seconds)

          There are thousands of videos on YouTube to help you learn all of the things you say you need help with.

          If you want someone to do your work for you, you'll have to hire them. I'm pretty sure that most folks feel the same way. :-)

                The secret to not feeling as if your efforts are not being taken advantage of is to suggest very small actions that can be completed in a day and as they are, then offering more steps, going forward. Give them 'Step A' and when they successfully complete it, give them 'Step B." They don't complete the first step, you can move along knowing that you are dealing with a dreamer, not a doer.

                These threads are very common and usually wind-up with the OP taking no action whatsoever after someone lays out a lengthly, detailed action plan. The OP will simply disappear.

                Take it from an old man - life is short and the time you spend attempting to help others in a massive way, as opposed to dripping your suggestions will never be reclaimed. Once that time is gone, it is gone forever.

                To me, the saddest part is that it's the folks that have been here the longest that constantly make this mistake. For as smart as they are, I will never understand why they never seem to learn. I guess hope springs eternal. lol

                Hopefully you will see the value in going out of your way to help others in the manner that I have suggested. It's called self-love. :-)

    Hi Kathy,

    I also do solo ads and starting out is pretty tough. you can find my site to see how it is going at success with sampson .com.

    As far as getting started I recommend a couple of things:

    1) Join FB solo ad sales and testimonial groups - These places are full of people who of course sell solo ads as well as people who buy ads as well. Jumping into those groups and making friends with people there will get your feet wet with finding people who are giving great ads, and you'll get the names of people who purchased, which you can then start adding them on facebook to do the item number 2 which is...

    2) Have promotions! - These promotions or specials are going to be what will make you stand out from the crowd. Of course, if you have zero experience, i highly recommend giving your service for free in exchange for a testimonial. When i started, i think i did 100 clicks for a written testimonial, and 300 clicks for a video testimonial.

    As the traffic is going, make sure everything is lined up perfectly and you ask them how everything is going. Every positive interaction can be a testimonial, so keep that in mind. How was the traffic, the extra clicks you suprise your client with and the number of opt-ins all can build a solid rep.

    Youll need those to get going. Those who accept your offer, keep their info, build rapport and ask them when will they be ready for a real run with you. Take the date down and be sure to follow up when that time comes.

    Once you get 10 testimonials, then you can offer other things like 100 bonus clicks when you refer a friend, or buy 300 and get 200 more at 1/2 off.

    It will take some time but with patience and consistency you can get there.

    I have more tips, so feel free to PM me about it...but i feel this should be enough to get you going.

    Good luck!

    Sampson

    Hi everyone,
    I read this thread and especially reply by Rob Whisonant:
    The first step you need to learn is how to create a website. Do some searched on your favorite search engine and start learning that first. I'm sure you can find some courses on websites for beginners on Udemy.

    After you learn that, then and only then should you move on to learning exactly what email marketing is and how it is used.

    Next, you then learn how to build a email list. This would include squeeze page design.

    Next, learn how to drive traffic to your website and squeeze page.

    NOW, and only after you have learned the above, start learning about the solo ad business.
    1. I know how to make a website. Of course it will take time, to design and adjust it well, but I could do this, either a CMS or few basic .html files.
    2. I researched a bit and get the idea in theory.
    3. Again, I know in theory how to build email list, but here I also have a question - which service should I use? I registered for mailchimp, but am not sure if you can move your list between services easily?
    4. I found that I should be aiming for free traffic. And I know this in theory again.
    5. Where should I proceed to learn about it?
    I guess one question that I had in mind for last few days is: how could I try to set up things covered by 1-4? How should I choose specific market? Or maybe this doesn't matter so much. I am almost sure that my first attempt will fail, but it could be useful to try implement this model in practice.
