    Do you mean Fiverr gigs? I would say it's just a waste of time and money.. solo ad sold for $5 simply can't deliver any good results..

      I suggest avoiding fiverr entirely with regards to solo ads.

      You won't convert.

    No, solo ads for $5 must be a scam, and you should get out of that mess.

    i agree with everyone else....fiverr gig solo ads are going to be low quality. mainly freebie seekers or bot traffic if anything.

    anything that utilizes bulk traffic in fiverr i tend to avoid....getting visitors, likes for a fb page, twitter followers...stuff like that.

    I agree. They're sending what's known as "junk traffic."

    You don't want or need it.

    Have to agree with everyone else before me that paying $5 for a solo advert on Fiverr is highly unlikely to provide you with quality genuine clicks and subs that you would get from reputable solo ad sellers. I'd avoid Fiverr for solo ads if it were me.

      Have you tried going to relevant articles in your niche on ezine articles.com?

      You can contact the author of the article (if you detect they are list building) and see if they want to strike up a deal.

      The first few times it's a little bit of work, but you can streamline and automate this with Gmail canned responses.

      Hope to help.

    Ask the seller how and where the traffic is going to come from, and see if it will suit your offer.

    I've bought solo adverts where the seller blasts out to safelists, but as I have a squeezepage and product relating to safelists it converted well and I made sales.

    If they don't reply and the feedback is low then avoid, but it may be worth looking into.

    I have to disagree. I bought quite a number of solo ads from Fiverr and I managed to get about 1,250+ clicks with a spending of $70.

    That's about 125 clicks per $7. Not bad at all.

      That's really interesting as I have tested solo ads from Fiverr and found them to be, without exception, rubbish and from terrible traffic sources.

      Did you track actions (sign ups to a squeeze page) and sales if there was a backend (OTO & downsell)?

      If so -please PM me with details of sellers and I will gladly carry out a detailed test for the guys on this thread because that is indeed cheap traffic if it's any good.

      I can get you thousands of clicks for peanuts but it won't do your business any good because you'll get ZERO conversions.

      Very happy to be proved wrong but in the real world - probably not

      Cheers

      You did? Hey that's amazing, how is the response of the visitors? Do they opt in and buy your offers, and what are the conversions like?

        The conversion is quite low. Maybe because of my squeeze page. I got about 52+ optins out of the 1250+ clicks. Yeah, not fantastic but it does get me some subscribers.

        Hi Edmund, so far only one sale out of the 50+ optins.

        As what most people will say, you get what you paid for. $5 is not much but it does help me test my squeeze page and set off the pace.

      Guaranteed to be automated OR minuteworker traffic... OR traffic from lists that were grown in a unscrupulous manner.

      You can summon demons to click and subscribe.

      You want to witness conversions before you boast of any solo seller.

        Joseph - let me just run the numbers for you:

        You effectively paid $70 for 52 optins.

        If you spend $70 with a reputable solo supplier you'll get say 140 clicks and if your squeeze page converts at 40% (not unreasonable) you would get 56 optins - not too dissimilar.

        On such a small sample and without knowing how you treated the optins it's impossible to comment on quality. However, I would always expect the traffic from a good solo ad supplier to be far better than what you can pick up on Fiverr.

        So, all things being even - go with the quality solo ad every time!

        Hope that helps.

    I would say avoid this gig. This sounds like a junk traffic offer. You want real people opting into your list, so spend the extra and go with a reputable solo ad vendor.

    Even if you get some kind of response from a Fiverr solo ad they will become less and less responsive because a solo ad for five bucks will have several buyers in a day. It could even be automated bots who are clicking. More relevant is how many opt ins you get with the clicks from a Fiverr solo ad.

    I did some testings and was not good at all. Stick with safe swaps but even there it is hard to find quality list sellers as mostly are just swaping.

      If someone is selling solo ads for 5$ and someone for 70$ and has customers, it must be a trick somewhere

      In this industry nothing very good is cheap.

    I did get some subscribers for a free download using a fiverr gig. None of them have converted yet. IDK, maybe that is my fault......

    fiverr gigs for solos are a massive waste of time! You definitely should not order any...

    If you want to do solos even if you go to a reputable site like safe-swaps you still have to investigate and speak to people to see what list they are sending out to for you...

    Try and get mail outs only for buyers lists

    Stay away from Fiverr for any traffic promises. No solo ads, no facebook likes, no twitter followers... It's all trash and not worth your money.

    Use Fiverr to get new content you can offer. It will bring in much more targeted traffic which might buy.

      Research, research, research. I know it's always best to find a bargain, however - cheaper doesn't always mean better. Sometimes you do have to shell out some money for quality. I wouldn't recommend purchasing solo ads from fiverr type gigs unless you know the solo provider and they are reputable. You can find better solo ads at places like safe-swaps.com where solo ad providers have current feedback on there delivery.
