    In my opinion stay away from Fiveer for solo ads, you can expect good results for a $5 solo ad there.

    There is this site UDIMI and if you make a search on facebook on solo ads groups you'll find plenty of groups, I specially like these https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoloAdsTestimonials/ because people share their results with others and you can see opt in rates, sales if any and comments about sellers.

    Hope this help

      Mate, everyone has tried that method, It used to work 15 years ago maybe even 10 but any decent solo ad supplier will not accept it anyway.

      If they do, they need money and their traffic is probably crap.

      Go Back to basics, Build your own list and gently lead the prospects to the obvious decision of buying what you want.

      Yes its frustrating at the start but if you can get through that then....??????

      No that's just burning your money.

      Most solo ads vendors do not accept sales page anyway.

      Instead build your own squeeze page using:

      - Hosting + domain + install wordpress
      - Autoresponder (GetResponse/Aweber)
      - A landing page theme or plugin (There are many on the market)

      After that you can process to buying solo ads, of course only dealing with reputable sellers

      It's tough enough to make a profit with solos if you have a good funnel in place.

        Absolutely right. Solo ads are not as easy as many would have you believe.

        First of all, you should NEVER send solo traffic directly to a sales page. You would simply be throwing your money down the drain if you do that.

        Sure, you might make a sale or two, but even if that's enough to cover the cost of the solo ad what do you do then? Order another and hope to make enough sales so you break even or make a few bucks profit? That's not a viable way to start a solid online business. Also, as some pointed out, most reputable solo vendors won't send traffic directly to a sales page. They require you to have a squeeze page.

        You will need to build a list of targeted leads and then find the right content/promotion ratio for your list. You will want to try and build a relationship with your leads before you try and sell them something. This way you will be building a viable long-term business and your list will be your greatest asset.

        I think that you should take the time to learn a little about list building and find out what kind of squeeze page and offer is best for your niche before you start to spend money on traffic. That goes for any kind of traffic, not just solo ads.

        Don't make the same mistakes with solo ads that I did. I literally lost thousands of dollars on solo ads before I got it right. That doesn't have to happen to you. All you need to do is a little research before you dive in and I think you will find that will save you a lot of time, money, and frustration.

    Stay far away from Fiverr for solo ads.

    There are plenty of solo ad sellers here on this forum.
    That way you can check out their reviews from other buyers.

    Here's one I found by doing a quick search Solo ad special

    Also, most if not all solo ad sellers will require that your offer is free. Free report, free video, free e-course, etc...

    Your best strategy with solo ads is to send the traffic to an optin page, get their email, then either send them to a download page to get their free report and include your affiliate offer on the download page.

    Or, once you get their email you send your offer through an autoresponder follow up series.

    That's pretty much how solo's are done.

    Hope that helps

    Hey there,

    I'd suggest staying away from Fiverr when it comes to traffic because generally it's not really targeted and the traffic that comes from it isn't "hungry" and doesn't want it as much as someone who's on an experts email list. They more than likely just clicked an ad to get your free ebook then will stop reading your emails.

    My personal recommendation is to go with Justin with justinsoloads.com his list is phenomenal and absolutely ultra-responsive.

    You can also go on a Private Facebook group called "Solo Ad Testimonials" where you can connect with sellers on there.

    Finally you can also use a website such as Udimi.com and find sellers on there as well.

    It's important to find a great seller and stick that person and really leverage it up. You shouldn't look to make money on the solo, but you should instead look at it as an opportunity to market to them forever or at least until they unsubscribe.

    A quick tip I learned is to buy your way up to 1,000 subscribers which can be done with 1-2 big orders of clicks from a great seller such as Justin and then go on a website such as Safe-Swaps.com and do a thing called Ad Swapping which is basically you promote one guy to your list and he'll promote you to his list (find a seller with the same size list as you) and that way you can grow past 1k subs completely for free.

    Hope that helped

    Take care & have a great day!

    Adam

    OP - you got some really good advice from a few Warriors here already, especially the advice about not sending traffic directly to a sales page and "it`s hard enough to make money with solo ads even with a good sales funnel in place". Very true !

    I would say to you : get some solid training in solo ads / email marketing first. Find a good WSO here or just start searching the forum for threads on solo ads and email marketing.

    Then, go to Udimi and get your feet wet with solo ads from some of the sellers there who have lots of satisfied buyers who report getting sales of their one-time-offers or report getting lots of opt-ins (better than 40% opt-in rate). Better than 50% is what I usually get, but I have a high converting squeeze page set up, after MUCH experimentation and tweaking.

    There is much to be learned young Jedi !

    I wouldn't recommend solo ads for traffic. The quality of solo ad traffic has dramatically decreased over the last few years.

      That's right, I've encountered a vendor on fiverr before who sends out clicks but when I use my tracking software to see the result, it shows nothing just like getting broadcast clicks, however after thousands of clicks all from the US, there's not even one subscriber, very strange.

      However the vendor actually gets 5 star reviews, so be careful when you deal with vendors selling traffic on fiverr.

      Hope this help,

      - Ray

    Most people automatically think of the “make money online” niche.The reason for that is because solo ads are most common in that particular niche. On the other hand, what a lot of internet marketers are beginning to realize is that solo ads are incredibly effective outside of the “make money online” niche.In fact, solo ads are just as effective in other niches. Solo ads are incredibly effective within the following niches: self improvement, weight loss, and beauty niche. a lot of people don’t realize is that building an email list is important in every niche. Collect the email addresses of people with a specific interest or need and you’ll be ready to make some cash just from one email campaign. Granted, of course, that you satisfy their particular needs within the email campaign.I joined Solo Checker at the Gold level. The profits from the sale of my 300 free clicks from Solo Master Pro covered my monthly membership cost as well as my monthly Solo Checker cost. I absolutely love Solo Checker because I can place ads with them and get sales with absolutely no effort on my part.

    Not recommended to buy solo ads from fiverr. It is important for you to do some research on the solo ads seller first like their past customer's feedback and results before you purchase.

    Like everyone said, don't get clicks from fiverr. You are going to waste alot of your time and money.

    In fact, dont even start until you have at least $1k to invest in solo ads and know how to build a good funnel to recoup your investment.

    if you don't you will be burning money away.

    My best advice?

    Get a mentor...I got mine and it makes a world of a difference between struggling and scaling.
