    How much should a good solo ad cost?
    "Good" is subjective.

    They go for about $40 - $100 for 100 clicks.

    I usually pay between .35 and .50 a click. If you see really cheap clicks, be very careful. Lot's of bot clicks being sold these days.

    Hi NeedBucksNow,

    i've made a lot of experience in buying solo ads and my experience is that i wouldn't buy solo ads.

    Because you don't know exactly which solo ad vendor also include his buyers to his solo ad campaign.
    Most of them only sell their freebie seeker list as solo ads...

    Ighor is definitely a good choice but expensive too even if you start out...


    Hope this will help

      There are more solo ads sellers at this moment. The price has climbed up for these two years as it now becomes the famous method used to increase the lists overnight.

      The price gone up but the market is also competitive. Now, the prospected buyers are expecting to see the testimonials before purchasing. So, you can do that similarly.

      There are several groups of soloads sellers available over facebook. You can look out for that and ask for the pricing. Perhaps you can try buying 50-100 clicks from a few and analyze the results. You can then decide which one works the most for you. Personally, I think the ones higher than 70 cent per click is too expensive. But you can tell it better if there is the sales generated from the opt-in or not.

    It doesn't have to do with the price.

    I have used 10dollarsoloads dot com, not sure if that's how the domain name is. You may want to google it. Basically it starts at $10 and higher.

      I just looked at their site ... they look pretty good, have you been happy with the responses? How long have you been using them?

    Your question can only be determined when you see your results. If you have a positive ROI it doesn't really matter how much they cost.

    So yeah we can't really provide a solid answer, because there are so many variables that only testing will tell you whether or not the solo ad was worthwhile...

    the answers will depend on many factors.

    The vendor's reputation. The vendor's converting numbers of his list. And stuff like that.

    You always get what you pay for. With that being said, the more you pay for solo ads, the better quality they SHOULD be. But be careful and do your research very very well first!

    You should but at least 500 to 1,000 clicks to test things out.

    I hope this helps!

    I wish you the best of the best!

    Keep up the great work!!

    Cheers!

    First off dont confuse Solo ads with Safe Lists!!
    Next the going rate for a good Solo ad is about 35 to 40 dollars per 100 clicks. Yes there are more expensive ones but if you are going to pay 1 dollar a click ud better make sure that who ever is offering that can give you some assurances
    I woulod never pay 1 dollar per click for a Solo ad but then again some Solo vendors have good responsive lists.

    Yes Solo ads work!

    Hi, in some cases the price start at 0.14 per click...but if you have testimonials can ask .45-060 per click depends on the quality you send. I have seen this prices on Soloadrolodex.. that is a software by Emilis Strimatis (Emka) if you Google it maybe you can find It. This is paid version but if you pm me and I can tell you how you can get low prices and then resell for bigger prices... I am not a solo ad vendor but know somethings about it and I can share it without problem!

    $60 per 100 clicks gets you the optimal subscribers.

    Make sure you have a highly converting squeeze page before you even venture onto solo ads alright?

    Between $.50 and $1 per click. Really depends on your niche or business, can even go higher.

      Typically for a solid one it runs around .50 a Click.

      There are also some legit ones that go as low as .18 a click when you buy in Mass quantity.

    A good one could run you about $80-$300

    And no thats not for 100 clicks but
    more so for like 200-500 clicks.

    Since I know the point of buying the solo ad
    isn't just to build a list but to make sales
    as well.

    Consider checking out SoloChecker or
    Matt Bacak Solo Ad Blackbook to see
    who to buy from.

    Hope that helps,

    In todays Solo Ad "market" I wouldn't pay any more than
    .50cents per click and no less than .35cents.

    It's really hit and miss with todays current sellers.

    Hi,

    Do you know your A.V.V.?

    Or better known as......"Average Visitor Value".

    That is the number you need to know to decide what you can afford to
    pay for the traffic you buy.

    So for every visitor that enters your funnel is let's say worth $4 then
    you know that you can afford to pay that amount for every click that you
    buy.

    Now you can go out and make better buying traffic decisions.

    Remember........Whatever can be measured can be controlled!

    All the best,

    Gavin

    I think you must start looking from 0.40-0.50

    But don't forget that solo ad quality these days are low and there are many scammers out there. You may want try PPC or other source of traffic paid or free.

    There are many ways to get quality traffic and i personally believe best way is use some free methods, ppc and the retargeting.

    Don't buy cheap, they are usually intelligent bots (you will have feeling that you get excellent solo, nice top tier ratio, excellent conversion...)

    Always check the vendor’s reviews.
    Avoid new vendors with no testimonials or social proof.

    Price is negotiable in solo ads industry...Some vendors charge $0.45 per click some charge over a dollar. I tested a lot and I didn't find out that clicks for $0.70 and more convert to a better result. It is all about branding and having a well-known name, so they can charge higher....

    Feel free to make your own testing and experiments if expensive clicks covert better for you, but these are my experiences.

    I suggest you try sellers with price around $0.55 - $70. Clicks below $0.35 are usually crap or bot traffic....
    I suggest to buy 100 click increments.
    If clicks convert well and you make sales you can repeat with a 200 – 400 batch.
    You can search out on FB groups, Skype groups, warrior forum and you can also Google it.

        Really, your question can not be answered by anyone as the cost will vary greatly, as will the list your solo ad is going to.

        A "good" solo ad is one that produces a profit for you and you don't know what any particular list is going to do for you until you test it. So how can you say it's "a good list" or not?

        People have given you some suggestions based on their experience. But you don't have any way of judging how well their offer was written, the niche they are in, their reputation and name recognition, the amount of targeting the list may have gone through, etc, etc.

        Start small, then track, tweak, and test again. It's the only sensible approach.

    I've paid between $5.00 a solo ad mailing (contacting safelist users at their contact email address) and upwards of a $100 solo ad mailing at the website, safe-swaps.

    It really all depends on what your target niche is and also your bankroll

    I'm not exactly too sure what your experience level is "Needbucksnow" but I have seen you posting her on the WF quite a bit lately so that tells me, if nothing else you are definitely on your way regardless.

    Ok, I've mentioned safe-swaps as a solo ad hotspot but also suggest the safelist sites (with solo as possiblility) Adtactics, Europeansafelist, Supremelist, Activesafelist

    Hope that helps my man

      Thanks. Was also wondering if solo ads would work with safelists. Guess you can really find leads anywhere as long as they have a good email. I'll have to do some research before I pick my 1st solo ad but I really love the forum. Cool to network with people and have been trying to soak up all the knowledge I can

    I wouldn't go for anything under .30/click - and if you want buyers and 100% T1 expect to pay up to $1/click.

    That being said, you have to test it out with your offer to see what works best.

    Start small and once you find a profitable solo ad seller with a good price and get a decent ROI - scale it up.

    I have been spent the better part of 3 hours looking for solo ads in the stock market / US futures market niche.

    It is damn near impossible to find anything. All I can find for solos are IM, Biz Op, Forex, and Binary Options solo ads.

    Anyone here doing solo ads into the stock trading niche?
