    No, not really. I've tried a couple of bulk services where you pay x$ for xx,000 visitors but the results were pretty terrible.

      Well I would focus on one way for at least 30 days to see how the process works. I would tweak things around to see what is getting traffic. The thing about getting traffic is that you could also use free ways. That way people would know of you. This is all my opinion though. Hopes this helps.

    depends what niche you are in?

    if it's IM then solo ads can deliver some really fast results

    When you say solo ads is that just picking a popular website and paying for an ad there? Or something else?

      From buying bulk traffic - about 100k total from different vendors I didn't get any sales but got about 20 list signups.

      Good luck with those gigs. I tried a few of them that did generate a little traffic but no conversions.

    You can try facebook Ads. Build fanpage and use facebook ads to promote your facebook page. Theny use fanpage to attract visitor to your blog from time to time.

    Before you start paying for traffic, I suggest testing your squeeze page and sales funnel thoroughly. Is the lack of success due to the traffic source or due to the effectiveness your sales funnel?

    Once you've figured the above, you can probably ramp up with solo ads and banner ads. You need to do your due diligence with solo ads.

    Good luck!

    I use a couple that I rely on to get clicks and leads regularly which cost about $.001/visitor but I rarely get direct sales. It's still profitable though if you monetize your site properly.

    Hi there,

    I know the feelings. Above all of these ads, have you ever tried offline marketing. However, depending on location, i.e. if it was in the UK am EU region, I can say doing offline marketing would have actually given you more traffic than what you might have spent.

    Example: Get a nice flyer designed, which makes people curious about your service ask on that flyer to visit site for more info and win some prize or voucher. Like, amazon $20 voucher or something.

    So, here in Kent, what I have done for my local customers are as follows:
    a) 10K A6 Flyers with design and printed for £250+ Distribution cost from door to door £50
    b) Printed 25 Posters A3 Size and gave it to local public places £125 + Posting to various public board £ 25
    c) Get some small freebies and pass it to local pubs and clubs: £250

    Total Spent : £700-£1200

    But the number of visitors are constant from 100-250 visits daily and daily shop visits did increase a lot. As well as online shopping did increase by almost 10%. However, while socializing and going to party and others of course - word of mouth as well worked a lot better than other ads. Even phone inquiry has increased a lot more than expected.

    Regards,
    Swrajit

    But you just mentioned the ones I read people kill it with. Perhaps you need to choose one and learn it in-and-out until it works for you.

    You can also try Facebook ads, depending on the kind of promotion you plan on running with paid ads, it may worth a try.

    I would say that the highest quality traffic is search. PPC from Google adwords. Yes, it's a pain to set up and keep live, but it will bring super high quality traffic is targeted correctly.

    easyhits4u is a traffic exchange I use with far from impressive results. Traffic Swarm is still at the top of my list for Traffic Exchanges even after 6 years of using them. Their anti-cheat system is by far the best out there. Watch out for credit specials. I buy a bunch whenever they go on sale for cheap.

  • Paid traffic really does work for many businesses. Although, i have to say that affiliate marketing is a really tough thing to do. I would recommend doing something with your own business where you have more control. Maybe drop shipping or selling something yourself.

    Others may have some better strategies for affiliate marketing, but I'm personally not a fan.

    Traffic acquisition is something of an art-form. Or, in any case, it requires a little getting used to and following a few rules.

    If you expect to clean out on day 1, having spent a few hundred bucks - you WILL be disappointed. This is where most ad networks get a bad name. Marketers don't follow through.

    You need to know that different ad networks specialize in different types of traffic. They usually won't tell you, or they won't tell you which demographics are the most responsive on THEIR networks. So it's up to you to figure that out.

    The way you do this, is to first do research. Visit the various networks, read up on what they say. Check out forums and blogs and see what people say. And then - cautiously, place a minimum TEST. Most networks will allow you to run small orders from $25 to $500 - all depending. Think of spending between $100 and $200 per network, to get a good idea. You can spread that amount over a few days (say $20-$25 bucks a day) and you can try different types of creatives, landing pages, text ads, etc - to see what works best.

    But this is just skimming the surface. There are a number of traffic acquisition systems out there which teach you how to do it. I have one too! (lol)

    The ROUGH template goes like this - and PLEASE, do yourself a favor and do NOT cut corners (e.g. don't design ads if you're a crap designer, don't write sales copy if you're really not great at it - just OUTSOURCE it and you'll save TIME and MONEY - promise!):

    1. Find a KILLER product. Something "everybody" not only wants, but also already KNOWS. If you do this with your own product or a lesser-known product, you NEED experience to pull it off. It CAN and DOES work, but NOT for a newbie in 999 out of 1000 cases.

    2. Either use their creatives or have new ones made - TOP standard with well written headlines and the works. If you're going to offer a bonus (in order to build your own list - a GREAT idea), then incorporate that into your campaign. In fact, you may discover that building a list FIRST (i.e. investing into giving away your freebie) MAY be a better deal than just going for the kill. You'll have a list of subscribers out of that and that's something that can keep on giving, if handled with care and lotsa love.

    3. Having done a THOROUGH demographic research for your product, now do an equally thorough research of your potential traffic sources. Understand also the differences between the various formats, e.g. CPC vs CPM vs CPA vs CPV vs Solos, etc. Not all work equally well for all products. In fact, you'll find that IM products will ALMOST not work for you on anything but solos. Sure, you CAN get that to work with CPC etc, but you MUST be experienced and your creatives, products and landing pages must ROCK and best 1000% tested.

    4. Set up your trackers and your autoresponder. A nice combination of Hypertracker, PrettyLink (for Wordpress), Google Analytics and something like Webalizer will do the full job for you nicely. And then, of course, also something like aWeber or MailChimp - or whatever you like, to handle your correspondence.

    5. Have ALL your followup emails (in case of list-building) ready. All your landing pages and their variations ready. All your creatives ready. And make sure they all make you smile - THAT's how good they have to be.

    6. Now run your tests. Set aside between $500 and $1000 for that, if you want to be 99% sure you'll get the best results. Pick between 3 and 5 networks that you MOST trust and "know" they'll deliver the traffic you want. As the tests run, keep checking your targets (your keywords or URLs as well as your creatives) to make sure you're not wasting money. Stop non-performers immediately, invest in the ones that convert and/or attract the most views/clicks - whatever you're measuring.

    7. Once your tests are complete you will know which network, which formats, which ads, which landing pages etc worked the best for you. You can now go to stage 2 and scale things up if your original goals were met. THIS is where you start making money. But WATCH OUT: 95% of newbies FAIL the test stage and throw in the towel. That's because they never manage to figure out what exactly went wrong. If you TRACK - you'll know. If you don't know, speak to your ad rep or your solo guy - or whoever it is you're using. The goal is TO KNOW once the tests are over. So, if you need to spend and extra $500 or even an extra $1000 - be prepared to do that. Very few people of normal intelligence will fail after that level of testing. And from that point on, it really CAN be your little cash machine! Ask me how I know, LOL.

    Best of luck!

    google adwords, and buying media buys on large heavy traffic forums and blogs. I like the second one best, you can score and barter deals, and at the same time its cheaper than google and you are getting I think higher quality traffic.

    One of our sites we spend a monster amount on an ad on a hightraffic forum, however, we pay a big amount, but the traffic and sales its brings far outweighs the money we outlay. Its a smart way to do paid traffic I think.

    I will add another vote for solo ads.

    Also, you can buy traffic by outsourcing ad posting to CL, Backpage and other classified ad sites. Pay somebody on Fiverr to post ads for you on those and other sites. Paid traffic !

    Pay somebody to post on huge Facebook fan pages related to your niche and leave your link to your own Fanpage (which is connected to your blog, of course).

    Pay somebody to post intelligent comments on high traffic blogs and forums related to your niche, and again, leave a link to your blog.

    Those are forms of paid traffic in the sense you are using free traffic sources but you are paying for outsourcing the task, instead of doing it yourself.

    If you are struggling with adwords and bing ads then there has to be a problem with either

    a) your targeting
    b) your landing page

    I would take a good look at these two areas before investing more money

    Have you even checked to see if anyone is looking for what you're trying to sell? You could be giving away free widgets but if no one is looking for them then there's no point in trying to advertise, is there?

    Marlon Sanders once said "find out where people are spending money and throw yourself in its path".

    There has to be a market for what you're offering and a certain pain point. People have to want it, need it, have to have it, etc in order to to get them to see the value, create urgency and want to take action right away. I don't see this opportunity you're promoting fitting that description. Sorry to say.

    I just checked the Google Keyword tool for the following keywords:

    durable motor oil 0
    amsoil motor oil 210 Exact Match Searches
    long life motor oil 0
    long lasting motor oil 0

    Personally, I think you have two options:

    #1. You could try telemarketing direct to auto parts stores, service stations, mechanics (?), trucking companies, etc and pitch the benefits of your product to them.

    #2. Drop this "opportunity" and go into proven markets like health, wealth, pets, vanity, hobbies, etc.


    Good luck.

    Actually I think you have a pretty good niche and just need to tweak and connect with your target audience. If you've all those traffic sources you say with no results -including Adwords & Bing - then you probably just need to track & test more.

    I glanced at the Adwords keyword tool for exact match terms containing "synthetic oil" and here's a short list:

    (Global monthly searches/exact)

    [synthetic oil] - 9,900
    [best synthetic oil] - 2400
    [synthetic motor oil] - 1900
    [synthetic oil change] - 1900

    ...and there's more! So I'd really suggest that you go back to the drawing board with your advertising. If you're not really skilled in advertising optimization then you should outsource this.

      I could be wrong, but those look like "information" keywords, rather than "buyer" keywords.

    All of the options you mention do work to "some" extent. That is why you need to test, test, and then test some more

    You might want to try getting your feet wet with some safelist emailers, creating your own You Tube channel, writing articles...just a few options I myself have used and continue to use effectively to this day. Good luck and did I mention, keep testing.

    If you were selling $100 gold for $10, you could buy traffic from anywhere and make money. As a matter of fact, you'd sell out before you even get a chance to buy lots of traffic.

    So the questions is: Is what you're offering in demand?

    Are you presenting your offer to your target market?

    Most importantly, is your offer a "good" offer?

    Even if you aren't selling gold at a discount, you have to be able to say yes to
    the rest of the questions above.

    If you cannot convert the traffic from Google Adwords then there must be something wrong with the setup of your site or the product itself. Given that you use the proper keywords, of course.
    How many clicks did you receive through Google Adwords? Our first sale took approx. 280 clicks, we spent more money than we earned but we learned how to play the game..

    For other paid traffic, I haven't really tried anything else yet, so I can only tell you about my experience with solo ads, which is VERY positive :-)
