    I am just curios ?

    If you have a List of 30K wouldn't you want to protect those Subs of yours and Offer them your own Content and Offers to capitalize off of ??

      i understand where you are coming from on this, but not every list is built with the same intent or business plan.

      I think sometimes its important to realize that internet marketing as a market has several niches. One of those niches happens to be building lists for the primary purpose of selling solo ads.

      you may not like the business model, but it is a viable model that works for many. It is also profitable for many.

      Heck, even many of the subscribers on those lists are getting exactly what they want.... free stuff. so actually everyone in that loop is happy. not really sure whats wrong with that?

      of course i realize most of the freebie seekers never become successful internet marketers, but i doubt the success rate among all wso buyers is actually much better. lol.

      to the OP, your best bets are places like udimi.com to get started.

        Thanks, My brother did a solo ads once to my entire list. He got 56 sales from for a system called Empower or something like that. He gave me 25% of his revenue.

          If you can send a broadcast to your list and get 56 sales, then why on Earth would you want to sell solo ads? And as far as not finding any good products to promote, you must not be looking in the right places. JVZoo, Warrior Plus, Warrior Payments, Clickbank, Rapbank, Payspree, PayDotCom, E-Junkie, Clicksure, Cash Network, etc, are all loaded with products you can promote.

          And if you have 74.38% open rate, as you claim, the LAST thing you want to do is start selling solos because you'll destroy that open rate and be lucky to end up with a 3%-5% open rate.

          I'm not one to criticize or call anyone out on a forum, but the numbers you posted are not really "adding up" IMO...

            WOW totally agree why would you start selling solo ads with an open rate like that. market to them yourself. I was thinking about buying a solo from you just to see how your list was. Anyway ill stick to my methods and pass on this one.

          Isn't the Empower Network a big pyramid scheme that was popular awhile back?

      Hey Robert,

      Thanks you for reaction. I have no products to sell to my list. It has been really hard to actually find a good product within the business opportunity niche that actually isn't a pyramid scheme or just a bad product or scam.

      Solo ads seem like a good solution to make some extra bucks

      Cheers,
      Olavski

  • Here is the question any prospective buyer is going to want to know.

    Who is on your list?

    Do you just have emails, or have you dug deeper into the demographics of your list subscribers?

    Is there a particular segment of your list that are purchasers? If so, of what types of products? Do you have campaign data on open rates, click rates, conversion rates?

    If you want to sell your list, you need to know who is on your list. This will help you find the people to market it to.

      Exactly.

      You want to know what niche you are in, the kind of people who are on this list of yours, bond if they are all buyers and not just freebie seekers.

      People who pay to promote on other people's solo ads want to make that they are really putting their money into a solo ad that has real people who WILL spend their money in this niche.

      Before you ever try selling a solo ad, check these things first.

      You don't want to sell a single solo ad unless you know your customers paying you are going to be happy with the results.

    There are numerous facebook and Skype groups where you can advertise your solo ads. You can even seek testimonials in these groups. Just let them know you are a new seller and offer to give them a good price in oexchange for an honest testimonial.


    There are also forums paid and free forums dedicated to solo ad selling and buying, just google it.

    There is quite a lot involved, (more than just posting in groups) especially in the early stages. I've sent you my details, so you're more than welcome to talk to me, and I'll help you in the right direction.

    With selling solo ads is the same as with other business... you need to build your brand of successful solo ads vendor.
    How to start....? The easiest way is to make your threat on warriorforum in Classified Ads section.
    You can also market your business on face book in solo ads groups.
    On beginning give them a good price in exchange for an honest testimonial.
    So you will get some testimonials and ball will start roiling....

    The best thing you can do is give away some free solo ads to people and ask for reviews. Once you gather enough reviews, create your own sales page site offering clicks from your solo ad. Post the testimonials as social proof and bingo! You're ready to sell.

    You can start getting traffic via Warrior Forum classified ads page and PPC.

    You could go to clickbank find a product that is highly regarded with a low refund rate and send to that product (they most likely have the email swipes for you) try and find a product that your list would resonate with.

    There are several courses in the wso section on selling solo adds one was a video course that was quite detailed.

    What niche are you in?

    I both buy and sell solos on www.clickonomy.com

    It was built by IMer Anik Singal - and is 100% trustworthy.

    Just make sure your list is LEGIT and responsive and ideally mostly 1st tier countries (USA, Canada, Australia, etc)

    If your open rates are crap, or opt-ins are poor you WILL get bad reviews on there.

    But, assuming you built your list the legit way - and you've got a good relationship with them it should not be a problem

    Hope this helps!

      Easy, you do it the same way you build a list of 1,000 - then multiply your efforts times 30!

    I will suggest you go to udimi.com and see what you think. With that big of a list, you should be able to make some money selling solos.

    I use udimi quite a bit now. I like this site quite a bit.

    Just my two cents. Maybe it helps.

    You got 56 sales with Empire Network? And your niche is IM!

    Why don't you try some IM products by yourself? JVZoo, ClickBank and CJ has loads of IM products that are selling well at any given moment. Try those to get some legit conversion rate stats......

    Then Solo Ads would be easier to sell.

    Give it a try.

    Post on WarriorForum! Just be honest and tell people your situation. Your lack of experience can be compensated by offering a lower price. Once people trust you, you can raise your price. No worries!!

    Ok, the most important number for you as a list builder is: EPC (Earning Per Click).

    As a list builder, one of your main activities is to segment your list in different segments. I mean buyers, freebie seekers, niche interest, etc.

    You NEVER send a solo ad to your buyers list. They should be segmented according to the products they bought. You send them other offers only (backend).

    As for your lists of freebie seekers and those who never purchased anything from you, you can sell your clicks and send them solos. According to your list size, at .40 EPC, you'll make anywhere from $1200/month to more from people who would have never bought anything from you. The bigger your list and the higher your prices, the more you make.

    Remember: E.P.C.
