Hello!

I recenly joined the forum and I think it is now time to ask a question that has been bothering me for a week or two already... So I've been trying to make some online income for an year already. So far I haven't succeded in anything. I've tried CPA but I didn't make any profits.

I think it is now time to start selling my own product. WSO I mean, eBook or something. The problem is that I have very low budget that I can spend on advertising. By small I mean really small, around $30.

Do you think it will be a good idea to create a product with a great looking sqeeze page and try to get sales via solo ads?

Thank you in advance.

    1.) How the hell are you going to convince people of your success if you haven't had any success at all with the methods you're spouting.

    2.) If you were to bash out a WSO, you're in competition with hundreds of WSOs offering exactly the same information as you. Why would someone buy yours instead of theirs when they've probably got a much larger advertising budget, and probably marketing skills.

    3.) The last point is in regards to the ethics of selling your unsuccessful method to make money.

      Then what should I do ?

      It may be a blueprint on some other topic, not a succcess story for online business. For example somehting I'm really interested in...

      Everybody started from somewhere... I have to do something

    There are many solo ad sellers in this forum. Locate the search bar on the top of this page to narrow down your search results. You'll find hundreds of threads on this particular subject.

    Best of Luck

    You don't need to create a WSO to make money. If you're planning to buy solo ads, you can get a PLR product (graphics package, wordpress theme / plugin etc) and offer it as Upsell at a low price.

    This way:

    - You'll be building a list (freebie seekers + buyers).
    - You'll be getting your money back (and making money sometimes).

    Just my 2 cents.

    Well... I can't say my writing skills are good... However, I am not that bad in designing. I'm good at Photoshop...

    But what kind of service I may offer ?

    If you only have $30 then i wouldn't recommed you buy solo ads, because you need to do a lot of testing to make it work (and lose some money in the process).

    I would advise you to set up a funnel first and try using free methods to see if you can make sales. It all begins with the funnel, if you have that in place you can build upon that, see if it converts and make adjustments later on.

    As you say you are good with photoshop, you can use your talent as an upsell. For instance, you give away a free graphics package and offer to make changes to the graphics for whatever fee you want to charge. That would be a good start

    Good luck!

    No offense but do you honestly think you can even make a dent advertising online with $30?

    Yes you can buy a solo ad for $30 or less, but what is that honestly going to get you?

    I mean, not only do you need creative ideas to get started, but you will need to test and evaluate your ideas which will take a much higher budget than 30 bucks.

    I suggest you create a product that is up your alley first (something your good at) start your own Wordpress blog about your product, and then once you have that setup, then and only then you can begin testing safelist and solo ads to promote out.

    Gosh, $30 is just so little, hopefully once your product is established you will have additional funds at your disposal to make a serious splash.

    Also, May I ask why did you quit on CPA so fast? For how long did you tired it? I didn't see my first conversion on CPA for atleast 3 weeks of trying. Please know that if you will look for overnight success, you are your own enemy.

    One advise, don't move onto new methods way too fast. Having a list is NO brainer, no matter what kind of marketing you are doing. But creating a WSO, with NO PROOFS of your own and rehashed material might actually hurt you , when people start asking for refunds.

    Don't make emotional decisions

      I was trying it for around half an year... Mainly single opt-ins and etc... the problem was still the advertising... I can't say i failed because I never tried advertising... All i did was craiglist and some YT videos

      I was trying to get something without giving anythings, which turned out to be impossible. Anyway I will try CPA again with some advertisng methods + I will get a website.

      About the WSO, I decided not to do it now.

      Wish me luck

    Solo ads are a great way to get started but considering just 100 clicks cost between $35 to $70 it can be very hard to start with just 30 bucks.

    100 clicks cost between $35 to $70
    More like $75 - $110.

    For $35 per 100 you get bots.

    Try implementing free traffic strategies to build up your list first and then start diving into paid traffic. Since you don't have the funds, using free traffic methods will help you test your funnel first so you can see if it converts or not.

    Then once you have everything converting nicely (your squeeze page and OTO page) then start running paid traffic.

      This is right on point. Set up a lead capture funnel, entice free traffic with a short report, and send emails about your experiences (both positive and negative) to your list. You can share what software you've tried and/or what WSO's you've purchased and read, with affiliate links of course.

      I recently purchased a 100 click solo ad for $25. Not only did I get a 65% subscription with an opt-in, but most of the subscribers have contacted me directly with questions.

      Not sure where you've been getting your solo's from, but it may be time to start shopping around. Might be your landing page or incentive though.
