Best place to buy solo ads?

51 replies
I am currently looking to buy a TON of solo ads. I have tried quite a few people but it seems like 90% of the ones selling it is ALL garbage.

Where can I find good solo ads and get them in BULK? I am trying to buy atleast 5k clicks a day as long as the traffic is converting decently..

Please let me know!!

    Define "garbage" please. Could it be you did not test your squeeze page?

    5k clicks a day is fine if you have $5k a day to spend on traffic?

    the average cost of solo ads is around $25 - $65 for 125 clicks

    don't always thing that the more expensive the better though, it's def not the case

    you can find plenty in the classified section but to be honest no one is going to hand you lots of profitable solo ads for completely free because they would of spent a lot of time and money testing

    5k clicks a day straight out of the gate, risky, there are some quality solos around, but you do need to hunt them down, and test, test test. but it is worth the effort,

    But how do you know if your squeeze page is converting good if you are being sent garbage traffic.

    The only thing you can do is test, test, test - until you get an average idea of your squeeze page and the average conversion rate. If its anything under 50% you'll be a fool to spend 5k clicks a day on it.

    But to answer your question - list brokers. Unless you want to contact 35-40 people a week the only thing you can do is hire a list broker. They work with the huge list owners who can supply you these kind of clicks.

    I have to be honest, though - if you didn't know this then you're not ready to use these services.

    Here are a few places I use to buy solo ads in the internet marketing niche...

    Ad swaps, sell solo and buy solo mailings - Safe-Swaps
    Reed Floren's Solo Ad Directory
    Warrior Forum Classified Ads

    I buy a ton of solo ads a month but it only works out to 100-200 clicks a day. Trying to find 5,000 clicks a day is going to be tough. You might want to look into adding additional traffic sources like PPV.

    Cheers,
    Coby

      Hi

      If you are genuine in your requirements PM me I can supply 40,000 clicks a week from good quality subscribers. However, you must realise that these are initially cold prospects to your offer so relationship marketing needs to be employed for maximum ROI, Your landing page needs to be good quality as does your email swipe. My traffic is 98% USA,UK,Canada,Australia

      In my experience if the traffic comes from a reputable source and is from the western world and english speaking, there is no such thing as garbage traffic as you put it. If you market correctly you will see a good ROI over time. The best return comes from the followups I use a 40 message email sequence.

      Regards

    I'm also thinking of solo ads to increase my sign ups. I do agree there is no garbage traffic, it all depends on your offer and how you present it.

    What is the best way to track conversions when running solo ads?

    The best place to buy solo's is through private list owners.

    Find someone who you feel may have a list that would be responsive to your offer, and make that list owner an offer.

    The worst they can say is no.

    You may end up paying more, but it's lower risk higher reward.

    I can put you in touch with several providers of solo
    ads to LARGE databases, if you want to PM me.

    One of these providers provide email marketing to
    Alex Mandossian, Dan kenneddy, Russell Bunson, Ryan
    Deiss... and other names that you;d probably recognize.

    I don't sell solos, but I'm friends with a lot of people
    who do, and making connections, earn me brownie points :-)

    Did You Realize That The Majority Of Launches FAIL?
    Here's how to do a wildly successful launch!

    Test first with smaller packages.

    Remember that you only have to get your squeeze page
    converting as high as possible so that you are adding as many
    subscribers into your funnel.

    If you have an offer then work on the sales page as much as
    possible so that you can make back most of your original
    investment.

    If you have that much to spend, you can set up many funnels
    & test them against each other & pick an outright winner.

    Once you have found one you can then pick which solo
    ad vendor(s) at Safe-Swaps, Reed Floren's solo ad directory
    has provided the best results & scale up from there.

    Hope this helps and let us know how you get on.

    You could use this as a case study & sell it as a product.

    I'm sure people would love to know what solo ads are converting
    right now.

    Especially with the budget you are willing to use.

    All the best
    Gavin

    Maybe your conversion sucks..

    I suggest testing your offer first before investing a lot in solo ads...

    If it passes the test, there's tons of people offering solo ads in the classified ad section.

    Cheers,

    Gary

    The solo ad universe (especially here) is a very incestuous mix. What I mean is that it's small and there are many of the same subs on LOTS of lists. Not only that but lots of these lists get pounded daily, some several times a day.

    What you need to do is find some fresh, legit list owners as far away from here as possible. If I were in the market I'd definitely check out what Willie is offering. Good luck.

        I actually wrote a blog about how to find good solo ads not too long ago...basically:

        - Always buy small at first to test the effectiveness of your offer on the proposed list. Small packages are usually about $30-40 for 100 clicks.
        - When purchasing solo ads, always look for testimonials & positive feedback from other customers.

        I generally tend to stay away from solo ads as i focus on other methods for getting my traffic, but im sure you can find good effective solos out there if you spend the time doing research

    If you want something that you can test and scale up, then building relationships on safe swaps would be a good way o go but if you have the money and dont mind price then contacting list owners and put your offer to them directly. hope this helps and you find what you are looking for.

    This is true. I know this is a bit off point, but I couldn't help but notice 2 things about you and this post...

    1) Your signature says "solo ad coach"...which is interesting...

    2) You have misspelled "genius"...which obviously means that...you know...

      Dear MarketingJessie,
      I feel so doubt about ur intention of this post.
      U r solo ad coach, and u are asking for an unexpected numbers of click about 5k clicks per day.
      Did u try to get traffic using WF ? Just post something abnormal to attract other ?

      I think warriors' time are valuable and we should discuss creative matters.
      Thank u.

    1) Get on facebook

    2) look for good testimonials


    3) ask to do a test, see if they are good communicators and get back to you fast.

    4) Do a small runs test.

    5) Always send traffic to optin page

    6) After you see good smaller results, do a bigger BLAST using the same SOLO provider.

    7) Sit back and count money.


    SOLO ads are still really good, no matter what nay-sayers on here will tell you.

    Plus you need to find the good ones. They are few and far between, so spend a few hours hunting them down. THey are the ones that have good testimonials, real ones, that will stick out like dogs bawls!! :-)


    I like to use solo guys, who do it as their full time businesses. i.e. List builders who get like 500 leads per day. Those are the guys you need to hunt down, talk to and go nuts with. Not going to give you my ones, as it took a while to find them. But having guys you can send an email with, and wake up to low ticket, and higher ticket type of sales is really awesome.

    As Celeste is mentioning, Facebook groups are a really great place to do your research. I have posted this in another thread as well but I think this could be really valuable to you too:

    I suggest you do the following for EVERY solo ad seller you are considering buying from:

    Join the following two Facebook groups, (send a private message to the Admins saying that you are looking to get some solo ads for your product/service):

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoloAdsTestimonials/

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/salestestimonials/

    Then go and read this post by Paul De Sousa to understand why you need to be so careful and should always use search these trusted FB groups first: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sale...4833939626452/

    All the way to the right, in the top menu inside all FB groups is a small search box. Whenever you are considering a seller from Warriorforum.com Udimi.com or wherever, always go and enter the name in the search box in those two groups and do a search first.

    Over time you will also learn to spot "suspicious reviews" and they do exist here too, but they are more rare in my opinion. Remember also to look for reviews that are recent, as solo ad lists deteriorate quickly if new quality subscribers are not added regularly since they hit them so hard, sometimes with several messages per day!

    If you don't have a particular seller in mind then go to the search box and enter (in quotation marks) something like: "2 sales" or "4 sales" and hit enter.

    You will then find testimonials from people that say they have received "4 sales" from a particular solo ad, and if its not a huge amount of clicks that is a very good sign.

    It's an easy way to search and get an overview on some potentially good sellers. Just remember that unless otherwise stated these sales are usually lower priced "Front End Products (FE Sales)" of $4 to $17 max...so it might be different with high ticket items but the fact that there are buyers on the list is a very good indication that this could be a solid solo ad seller.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    Many of them, without doing it on purpose, get you bots traffic.

    If you are buying solo ads and have done on a big scale and are not succeeding, look for other ways to get traffic.

    I use done-for-you-marketing.com they have packages ranging from 2,000 guaranteed visitors to 100,000 and they even give you over 2,000 email subscribers with any of the packages and if you join one of their monthly packages like I did they send you 160 new email subscribers per day. This has been by far the best program I have found so far.

    Well think about it... if someone is selling so many solo ads, their subscribers are probably on hundreds of lists by now...

    Look for solo ad providers that don't earn their main email marketing revenue from solo ads. People who don't send more than a few solo ads a week, or people who have good lists but haven't yet sold too many solo ads.

    You can find people on Udimi or Clickonomy.

    Before you spend any money on solo ads I suggest you read this thread;
    http://www.warriorforum.com/email-ma...ned-money.html

    I notice a lot of people recommending Udimi.

    I bought a solo from a seller on there, great feedback from previous buyers. 50% opt in, one sale worth around half the value of the solo.

    Guess what? Zero open rate from the opt in's and even the 'buyer' never opened another email. You can get scammed almost anywhere. In fact with all the positive reviews for Udimi I expect they will be making a bee line for it!
