How to get into the Solo Ads business?

43 replies
Hello,

I'm new here, I've been just reading around for a while, most if not all of us who participate in this great forum is because we have a goal in common: financial freedom lifestyle or something similar to that.

I'm a complete newbie here, I know how to create websites, use wordpress, and almost everything related to web developing, but I am a beginner when it comes to marketing.

So I recently discover about Solo Ads, getting your list and all that stuff.

I wonder, are there faster ways to get a good number of subscribers, even if it's payed method?

I heard about GetSubscribers, but do they actually provide good-quality lists? Are there any other providers like this?

I know about list swap.

How is competition like? Is it really saturated or is there enough space?

One last thing: What are the best niches to go for? Is it better to go off with something other than Internet marketing as most people go with this, or offer different niches at once?

Sorry for all this questions, I'm trying to learn, and I know you guys are great here. I'm not trying to buy a lot of WSO as that is not a good idea financially, I know there are some great ones, but I rather stick with one or two methods for now.

Thank you all for your time.

    Hey mate,

    Are you looking to build a list or are you looking to "get into the solo ads business" like selling solo ads to other people looking to build a list?

    If you are looking to build a list there are loads of different niches you can go into. A lot of warriors here are in the IM niche, but you can go into Weight Loss, or learning guitar, languages, or how to be a pick up artist, loads of options.

    If you're good there is always enough space.

    Sounds like you are just starting out anyway.

    Keep asking questions around here and you will get some great answers and insight

      Well, I'm looking into getting with the Solo Ads Business, my own little business which I can generate enough income at home to make it a full time job.

  • The solo ad business is a great business to get into if you are just starting out or if you want to add another income stream to your business.

    I have neglected this for some time now but I am between product launches at the moment so I have started to build my solo ad business.

    I am sticking with the IM/MMO niche to start with as there are a lot of people in there and it is very easy to start.

    If you want to speed up your list building then you can buy solo ads from other people to grow your list to a point where you can offer solo ads as well.

    Hope that helps

    I guess the biggest challenge you're going to face is to find ezine owners in the niche you want to build list in. In IM/MMO it's relatively easy and you can find plenty of those on WF. In other niches it's not that trivial and could take quite some time.

    Get the ball rolling by purchasing a few solo ads.

    Create a landing page, offering some free content that adds VALUE. They opt-in, you give them the freebie remember the keyword VALUE.

    After you've purchased a few solo ads, I'd recommend building your list to around 500. Once you've got your 500 strong list, start doing ad swaps with other people who have similar sized lists and that are in the same niche.

    Continue buying solo's and doing Ad swaps until you reach around 1,000 opt-in total. Now you can start selling 100 click Solo Ads.

    Along the way, continue to send value to your subscribers to build a relationship and have them warm to you, this will help your open rates.

    Another quick way of building a list for solo ads is to do a product launch. When you have a buyers list, you can sell solos for a lot more, since having a list of buyers is more powerful then having a list of freebie seekers.

    The real key to running a solo ad business is to be able to sustain it...

    Meaning...

    You must never stop building your list and you will need to put some extra effort into lead generation because you will be losing many subscribers to list dilution.

    This is a great way to make money - just remember to always re-invest back into your business by buying solo ads and other traffic to continue to generate leads for your solo ad business.

    I didn't bother to add any of the information about building your list as the folks above have done a good job covering that. I just wanted to point this out to you so you could calculate and plan for it so you can be in the business for a long time.

    Good luck!

    Cheers,
    Coby

    The solo ad business is a great business to get into if you are just starting out or if you want to add another income stream to your business.
    How can you possibly get into 'the solo ad business' when you're just starting out in IM? To sell solo ads you need to have a big list and be able to deliver clicks. No newbie has that.

    One question guys, for those who know..How expensive can it be to build your list? I've asked a very known member here who runs solo-ad business, and it put my hopes down when he told at least a couple thousands.

    I was thinking starting out with a list of 2-4k. maybe a couple hundreds I thought, maybe I'm wrong. I was very motivated but after this I was put down, I hope I understand wrong though.

    For an average guy who works outside the internet, I cant afford a couple thousands.

    Thank you.

      You and I are the same, I am a newbie too and I am on an extremely tight budget my friend.
      So that somewhat is limitign my lists growth.
      To build your list using cheap solo ads you can use
      Safe-Swaps

      Now, I got my first 100 subscribers from here. I know its not a great deal but on the budget I'm working with it is!

      You can find solo ads as cheap as $20! You can choose the number of clicks too. It's a great way to simply start.
      You most likely know this, but this auto responder is great Aweber
      I know its irrelevant but I thought it may help!
      Anyways, since we are somewhat in the same situation, I am going to PM you to share with you my experience with solo ads =)
      All the best mate

    Building a list through solo ads is likely to be super expensive for newbies because you'll not have your squeeze page as highly optimized as it could be, you're OTO (if you even have one) possibly won't convert that well and your back end sales funnel / follow up series ins't likely to be that great or convert well.

    To get that all to a point where it's performing well you need to test it and the only way to test it is to spend money on it. You'll likely spend a few hundred dollars (or more) on solo ads before you're even close to having everything set up in a profitable manner then you'll need to spend hundreds to thousands more to get your list built up to a sizeable amount.

    Look sick to the bottom of my stomach I am. I mean over the last three weeks I think I have read every thread on this forum about Solo Ads and have come to one grand conclusion. No one, NO ONE not one person here knows how to build, maintain and grow and internet marketing business focused on solo ads.

    I mean I read these WSO's and classified ads about solo ad sales and solo ad coaching and let me help you succeed in the solo ad business and it really pisses me off. Man do I hate to name names but clueless charlatans is what it basically amounts to.

    Let me add this before someone else does yes I sell solos and yes I coach people but NEVER the solo business I coach them on the internet marketing business okay that is the big difference.

    Do your research people the way so many are teaching the solo ad business is simply a magic potion get rich quick they will not be here long at all you see.
    I see some people being built around here as solo experts etc. I mean look people look at the experts Skype Rooms & Coaching and not just that go to the bottom of the page and see why marketers like Anik Singal, Matt Bacak, Mike Filsaime, Rich Schefren and Bill Walsh ONLY get their traffic from me. It's because I for one know YOU DO NOT go in to the solo ad business you go in to the Internet Marketing business.

      SPOT ON, Cornetta... I know there are those out there that are training and coaching students to build a list just so they can sell solo ads. And these people are making it seem and look so lucrative. This is ruining things for the good solo sellers. This is NOT a very good business model.

      You need to have a lot of experience in list building and list management before you ever consider selling a solo..

      Look, you should never be focused on list-building just so you can sell solo ads. There are now FAR TOO MANY people selling solo ads delivering garbage traffic and have no business out here just taking people's money.

      You should be focused on building a list so that you develop a following and build trust, acceptance, so that you gain the leverage the times you need to make a send to get the affiliate commission credits, your membership signups and etc...

      Solo ads are for the much more advanced who have a firm grip on list management and advanced list building. It's for those that have been successful in all other areas of list building first.

      Focus more on the fundamentals of email marketing long before you ever worry about advanced email marketing.... by that time you might just even see that solo ads are NOT the thing for you...

        John,

        Great points. Last time I look and everything I read, solo adds are just a part of IM. There are so many people claiming to be a "SOLO" expert it it amazing. In the past two years solo add providers have grown exponentially! Get a coach that teaches you IM and you will learn how building a solid and honest list will bring you long lasting monies not phase money!

        No exploitation is never a good thing. Just ask the Incas. I mean what exactly do you mean? Then I followed your link to the solo ad provider ebook. I mean not to be rude but I have never even heard of you on the solo scene.

        Take this to the bank, no one, I repeat NO ONE on this forum or anywhere else has sold more solos, sent more clicks for solos than me. I am not against selling solo ads, hell I changed the game to the current way of doing it almost single handily. I send almost 10,000 unique clicks a day for solos. And 99% of everyone on this forum selling solo ad systems learned how to sell or was coached by me.

        Here have a look, see if you recognize some warriors Skype Rooms & Coaching

        I stand by what I originally said and now seamed forced to release a product exposing what almost all are pitching and teaching this thing the right way. Oh boy now you all got me making products lol

    Personally my list is being built for me to help them. I would never sell solo ads because I would be sending them away from me. Just my approach. I have a small list of 1014 but have some trust with many of these folks and I wouldn't want to break this with swaps or solo Ad sells.

    The worst thing is...they don't even see that the best quality solo providers did NOT build their business around solo ads. Most solos you buy these days are converting like crap.

    These solo ads crazes are corrupting the industry.
    Everyone is selling their list.

    These guys are running different game.
    Their main incomes are from solo ads.

    For some of us, subscriber list is our assets.
    We only promote products that are useful to subscribers.
    However, I also note that my usual responsive list is not
    acting properly these days.
    Probably, they are hit by too many email ads these days.
    These solo ads are hurting us.

    The biggest problem with a lot of solos now is their conversion rates are dwindling.

    You should begin in IM to make money from your own products, affiliate selling, list building for YOU to make money from your own email marketing first, then go from there.

    Yes solo ads are a great way of generating quick traffic to your site, but ask yourself one question.....is that traffic of sufficient quality, that it will give me quality subscribers who will buy the stuff I promote?

    When an IM Giant like John Cornetta comes in and says this is wrong, then listen to him. John has been around a long time, and knows what he is talking about.

    I have never bought a solo from him, or been coached by him, but you'd have to be blind, deaf, and dumber than a box of rocks not to know his name carries a lot of weight in the IM business.

    So concentrate on your builidng blocks first.....then when you can command clicks maybe you can start selling solos....but even then, set yourself apart, and keep your traffic....it pays you in the end.

    Interesting discussion this...

    But this raises quite a lot of questions now -

    While we are talking about the self-proclaimed "SOLO ad Gurus" as all fake and as giving out incorrect trainings and teachings, one thing that nobody is discussing is what is incorrect about the entire concept they are discussing..

    I see a lot of people in here agreeing to the fact that all this talk about SOLO ads as a business as "incorrect" and that we are diluting the lists by doing so and the like... but at the same time, most of these people have a link in their signature to solo ads that they are selling..
    1). How different is their business model?
    2). Doesn't this involve sending the same offers that these other marketers send out to their lists?
    3). Wouldn't this lead to diluting lists..

    When I use solo ads to build my list, why is selling SOLO ads not a business in itself..It is true that it comes under the IM umbrella, but just like most other things wouldn't it be a self-sustainable business model.

    Every other day there is a rehashed product being sold in the market and thousands of aspirants fall prey to it.. They buy it making some marketer rich..The buyer still is stuck at where he was..No money and no business.. We all talk about taking action..but there is something in addition to taking action. That is proper guidance. Whatever guidance is available online is of the type - "I tell you, you follow it" and comes at a charge that is not affordable to many.. The others that are affordable is mostly junk.

    In such a scenario, SOLO ad sales (If I put it that way and not call it a business) is at least reliable..and I know that 1-2-3 are the steps involved and this is how I can earn money and make some sales...

    No offenses meant to anybody..Just trying to get a clear idea of all this..

      John Cornetta, you're like a breath of fresh air. Selling solo ads is great if you can deliver real and hungry buyers and that's what every body needs. I have felt hesitant to jump on the build a list to sell solo's train. Just sounded like it would dilute the quality of the leads and at some point everybody loses. Thank you and Deepo for your insight and experience on this subject. Now lets get to some internet marketing shall we? I'm cutting my teeth in the health/beauty space of IM right now. I feel like a real marketer must be able to actually sell things other than internet marketing material. I think we've all been down the rabbit hole of buying IM stuff that basically just keeps us in the same place while the guy that created it is laughing all the way to the bank. Let's raise the bar and create quality stuff that people need and that will actually add to their lives instead of adding to their frustration.

      That's a funny shot towards me. However you miss the point 100% Selling Solo Ads is a great PART of your over all make money strategy but only if built on sound IM and list replenishing tactics. I can afford to sell solos because I am adding over 2k new subscribers EVERYDAY and have many other income sources as well and a nice foundation to boot. That is the point I raise sir

        Thanks for that response John, though it was not specifically intended towards you.. There are a lot of signatures in there with a link to a SOLO ad sales page..
        No questions about your SOLO ads business.. But my only question was:

        Some of us here are discussing of SOLO ads diluting the list, then how is it that the same people can sell SOLO ads.. This was basically the point I wanted to raise..

    when will people learn? In order to be successful with any business model you need to become excellent at what you do,thereby being able to deliver extreme value.Someone like John Cornetta isn't making boatloads of money just because he has a big list.It's because he operates from position of overdelivering and is a master at what he does.This is the same with any business,so if you want to go down the route of selling solo ads,do it from the intention of adding value to your buyers,not because someone on here told you that you can "make $3000/month while scratching your arse"....

    To those who not know what it is: it's getresponse selling small ads where people can optin and they jump directly into your getresponse list.

    These ads show up on the getresponse unsubscribe page.

    I bougt 500 of these leads and am getting as we speak. However I only get 1-3 every day so it takes time to get delivered what you buy.
    The quality of the leads. Basically it's people who un-subscribe from other lists and it's worldwide audience.

    I cannot recommend GetSubscribers. It takes way to long.

    I will definitely go for solo ads, to get many subscribers fast.

    regards Hans

  • Ahh, Mr Cornetta saying it how it is as usual! As I mentioned in my post I am building a solo ad business (I know don't shoot me just yet though) This is because I am between products and it doesn't take much time or effort to add this to my current business.

    I also have my own products out there that add subscribers and buyers to my list. I don't just hammer my list with offer after offer as I have a blog with a lot of valuable information on it so my subscribers get messages sending them to a series of relevant content from my blog as well as anything else I find that may be of use to them.

    I know that if I just build a solo ad business as some people are suggesting it would not be that sustainable without a lot of effort and it would also ruin my name in the industry! No one wants to do that!

    Keep on being real John!

    It seems to me that you CAN sell solo ads IF you are bringining in enough new subs everyday to keep your list fresh. That seems to be the model the people are teaching for Solos.

    From researching I have gathered this model

    1) Setup systems to bring in new subs everday
    -squeeze pages
    -blog opt-ins
    -ad swaps
    -external solos

    2) Provide content to your list
    -pure content ie blog posts, newsletter content

    3) Give them what they want by surveying then
    -send affiliate links to GOOD products
    -send links to your OWN products

    IF you are doing that and getting good consistant click throughs THEN you can start selling Solos to people with GOOD offers.

    Am I right here??

    I'm a complete newbie here, I know how to create websites, use wordpress, and almost everything related to web developing, but I am a beginner when it comes to marketing.

    So I recently discover about Solo Ads, getting your list and all that stuff.

    I wonder, are there faster ways to get a good number of subscribers, even if it's payed method?

    I heard about GetSubscribers, but do they actually provide good-quality lists? Are there any other providers like this?

    I know about list swap.

    How is competition like? Is it really saturated or is there enough space?

    One last thing: What are the best niches to go for? Is it better to go off with something other than Internet marketing as most people go with this, or offer different niches at once?

    Sorry for all this questions, I'm trying to learn, and I know you guys are great here. I'm not trying to buy a lot of WSO as that is not a good idea financially, I know there are some great ones, but I rather stick with one or two methods for now.

    Thank you all for your time.
    I am extremely thankful you asked this question as I am myself looking to break into the solo ad racket lol...

    For the time being I am reading all the WF threads I can find on solo ads and just last week joined safe-swaps to hopefully get my beak wet there.

    Good luck to you in getting started and I will come back to this thread if I learn anything of value I can contribute here.

      Good Insights from a lot of people..
      So 1 thing that I can gather is that you need to be building your list... By building, there could be a lot of things like providing valuable content, building relationships etc etc.. and then squeeze you SOLO ad business into it so that you don't end up in a situation where -

      Daily Sub Adds = 50, Daily Unsubs = 100

      That will not be story with a "And they lived happily ever after" ending.. which is obvious..

    Buy couple of wsos on solo ads to learn the basics. Then plan out a funnel. Then implement it - create a free report, a squeeze page, upsells. And then you can start sending the traffic into the funnel

    i'd like to just give you an alternative way to build a list, if I may, as its something that I did myself and has worked very well.

    Setup a gig on fiverr that addresses one IM problem that seems most people need the answer for.

    Now, instead of giving away your freebie, you can direct people to your squeeze page or to the content with an OPTION to opt in, similar to the war room.

    I did the above and turned freebie seekers into buyers instantly, built a list of 200 and made $2,000 (yes two grand) in about 22 days.

    BUILD YOUR LIST.

    Regards

    Los
