Do Solo Ad Sellers Use Your Ad Copy Or Ignore It?

13 replies
So recently I decided to try out some solo ads and tested a couple sellers producing good opt-in rates & sales for others. I tested 4 different landing pages. 3 were generic BizOp & one page clearly talked about the product & BizOp. I had email subject lines & ad copy targeted for each landing page. The page mentioning both product/Bizop had the lowest opt-in results. I decided I would continue to test out other sellers and maybe landing pages.

Then something hit me when reaching out to another seller I want to try. They mentioned they could understand why I got a lower signup rate on the product/BizOp landing page because they no idea it was about a making money opportunity until they scrolled down a little bit. Well the subject line/email ad copy clearly states it's a biz opportunity related to the product. That's why I have the ad copy to pre-qualify people before they "click".

So here's my question for those with accurate knowledge. Do solo ad sellers use your subject lines & ad copy you provide them? If some do, then what %? Often I see sellers just asking for your landing page URL only.

  • Solo Ads is my specialty, Solo Ads are sold to you and once you provide them with your swipe you really have no idea whether or not they send your swipe or their own to attract the open and click from the subscriber?


    It is a mystery, I have spent over $20,000 with solo ad sellers, I found varied results with many great sellers but in the end I knew there had to be an easier method so I decided to invest time into research about Solo Ad mailing, I found 2 incredible Solo Ad mailers that provide you with a growing list of leads every day.


    One of them provides me with 200 leads a day and the other one provides me with 140 leads a day. I simply log in and submit my swipe and click submit to all. I get to check the stats and see how many opens and clicks I get but most of all I get to check the results...


    This solo ad industry is a goldmine for Solo Ad sellers, I have been an email marketing entrepreneur for many years and it has only been since I started using these 2 Solo Ad programs that my revenue started to skyrocket.


    At the moment I pay $1 a day for around 1000 clicks and my usual sales are around 5%, when you work this out in comparison to solo ad sellers, you can pay $100 for 100 clicks, there is no guarantee any of them will opt into your list or become a buyer of your product or service.


    Solo Ads can be very rewarding if you know the 2 companies that provide real accumulative results, one of my email marketing programs provides me with 6000 leads a month and the other about 4200 leads a month, this means I get to email 10,200 leads this month and next month I get to email 20,400, the month after 30,600 and so on.


    Save your time and money on the old method, yes of course I am not saying that all SoloAd sellers are fraudsters but you really have to be careful who you invest your hard earned money with, I have learned a lot of things about their techniques in my 15 years experience, don't be fooled, do your research first. Hope this helps you my friend. James

      Can you show me these places that you found? When you said " I found 2 incredible Solo Ad mailers that provide you with a growing list of leads every day."

      Can you provide the link of these places, please?

      Hi Sir, I am about to delve into the Solo Ads world and would prefer not to have thrash around like a bull in a china shop to find good providers. Are you able to provide the links or names of the two companies that you recommend?
      Thank you

    If I may comment on this point... have you determined if they were more profitable leads?

    On the main point of others changing copy, headlines, etc. Unless you're on top of it, anytime it goes to someone else's hands, be it solo ads or whatever, there's a chance things will happen with it.

    I get people who'd rather search the internet and use something about me they find there rather then the copy and images I sent them believe it or not (interns I suspect because they're hooked to their devices), people who edit my copy because in their mind they don't get it and they're not my target, or leave out essential terms because they're scared those terms will discourage buyers. Also, people on their staff making these edits aren't necessarily savvy salespeople.

      It's too early to tell but you are likely thinking what I'm thinking about the product/bizop page having lower opt-in results but possibly being more profitable. I'm hoping that will be the case. Interesting though I think my company that provides these landing pages just updated that product/bizop lander as you can easily see it's that it's bizop without scrolling down. I've had people updrade/join within one day & up to three weeks so far with the follow-up system. More testing is needed of landing pages/ad copy/sellers. I very slightly tweaked the subject line and ad copy & will continue to test it out along with 3 other landing pages (1 different from before).

      I can see my latest solo ad test on one of the semi-generic landing pages (using my ad copy I presume) is currently getting higher opt-in rates than from the two previous sellers. I'll do tests with the other 3 landing pages with this new seller (other sellers are on my list to try as well).

    At the core, this is why I prefer to build my own list through my own blog. Handing off copy and links to other people instantly gives them some creative license. Even if contracts say different, ceding control makes that shift. I'd grow your list organically to have all creative control and to grow your own loyal tribe.

    They are all different. Deal with each one independently, it is called communication

  • There are solo ad sellers that will ask your consent if they can change the ad copy. And I think they know their list well so we can put our trust in their work.

    You can still insist to use your ad copy and they will gladly accept it

  • I don't think they actually use the ad copy provided by the solo ad buyer..they have there method of email blast to their mailing list but ,they will draw out a knowledge from the ad copy and promote your services which you paid for...

    Some sellers of course will use their own trick just to force their subscribers to click on your links so that they get the money.

    But you need a reputable seller that will send your headline and email copy exactly as it is so that your optin rate and conversion isn't affected in the long run.

    You should mention clearly what you require, and if possible you should join their mailing list so that you can receive the promotion they're sending.

    You can also ask; what's the guarantee he'll send your copy as it it?

    Usually you send them your email title and swipe. If you met a good solo ads seller, they will advise you how to improve your email swipe to increase the conversion rate.

    Use click tracker to track your clicks.
