Finding Quality Solo Ads

35 replies
I recently started a membership site and I am looking to increase my traffic. I'm already doing social media and article marketing, but want to branch out to solo ads.

How do you screen for a quality seller of solo ads and one who is targeted towards your niche? It seems like everyone on this forum offers them and has five star testimonials, 80%+ English speaking countries e-mails, and all that good stuff. As a result, I not sure how to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Any recommendations for a good provider of solo ads in the investing/stock market niche would be helpful as well. I'm looking to spend $20-60 on a few to test them and then buy ads regularly from whoever provides the best conversion rate.

    You should check the following FB group, read a couple dozen testimonials, and choose the best 3-5 provider: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoloAdsTestimonials/

    I managed to find 3-4 truly amazing solo ad seller here in the last few weeks (very high T1 rate and I get 50%+ optin rates).

    Obviously, not every solo ad vendor will provide you with a great list that will get you laser targeted leads. Given your goal is to build your list be sure to ask the solo ad vendor the right questions.

    So when reaching out to a solo ad vendor you want to ask him the following:

    1) Which countries is his list more or less made up of - be sure it targets English speaking countries as you want your readers to understand what you are promoting to them
    2) Do they use a ''rotator'', if they do, I would stay clear away from them
    3) Which "niche" is their list in to make sure that they will be responsive to what you are offering (common sense right? )

    Now let's say we set our solo ad campaign, how are we going to be sure we had a great campaign at the end of the day? Ask yourself, how many opt-ins/ leads did I get? If you got over 25% opt-ins then I would say that is a good number even if you didn't get any sales. Remember that the money is in the back end as you will be e-mailing your list everyday and building that relationship with them, you are going to make money with that list in the future even if you are crappy at e-mail marketing. With this said, if you had a bad experience with a solo ad make sure you don't give up, keep testing and testing until you see your list grow and conversions start to take place!

    Now here are some places you can find solo ad vendors provided you are in the Make Money Online Niche:

    Warrior Forum -- Classified Ads
    Safe Swaps

    Facebook Groups:
    Solo Ad Providers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sawwpsolos/
    Solo Ads and Ad Swaps: https://www.facebook.com/groups/soloads/

    If you are not in the make money online niche just do a Google search and do some research

      What's wrong with rotators? It means they are split testing thief landing pages to get a higher conversion.

    I've honestly had the best results from searching for threads here on the Warrior Forum where solo ad vendors are selling. You can read plenty of testimonials and then do some further research and due diligence into who you're buying from.

    There's also a Facebook group that allows members to post testimonials as well. Always go there and do a search to find out if the vendor you're going to purchase clicks from has some reviews already in the group from previous customers.

    Good luck, and remember to always be patient and never jump on the "best" sounding offers. I've been burned by quite a few questionable sellers.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I messaged out a few solo providers here and on Facebook and the all seem to be in the work at home/internet marketing niche. If you have any specific recommendations (if there are any) for my product in the stock trading/investment research niche, please send them over so I can do my due diligence.

    Safe-Swap is the best one as recommended. Don't look for cheap traffic. Buy at least 0.33 USD per click or above if you can afford.

    Before buying check his feedbacks of service. Only the feedback as a seller not buyer.

    Before buying bulk amount. Test three sellers first. Then, pick one which had the greatest result.

    Personally I get my solo ads from either Safe-Swaps or here on the Warrior Forum Clasified Ads section, you can see a lot of reviews and if you take time to read them you can also determine if people get any sales out of them or not.

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    One of the BIGGEST mistakes people make when buying Solo Ads is that they
    don't ask the Vendor any questions in terms of whether their offer is a good match
    for their lists.

    If you ask these questions to the seller and they don't get back to you then you
    know that they're more than likely just out to take your money and nothing else.

    You can look at all the testimonials and great reviews but that doesn't guarantee
    that your offer will see the same results.

    You'll find that there are a lot of decent solo ad sellers out there who will TELL
    you if your offer needs some work doing to it before they are willing to sell some
    clicks to you.

    DO YOUR RESEARCH and ASK QUESTIONS FIRST!

    No way that you knew the Solo Ads is good quality at least you try it.
    My suggestion is:
    1) read through the review
    2) buy small quantity (~100 clicks) to test the quality
    3) If good conversion rate, buy more from the same seller after a month (do not buy within short period, let the seller get more fresh subscribers)
    4) After you built up >1000 subscribers, use ads swap to double up your subscribers list in short time

    i am personally prefer to use safeswaps.com

      My advice is don't waste your time with solo ads as there are just too many issues with this practice, but poor traffic quality is one. My advice is to invest the money you would of spent into more legitimate paid advertising methods like ppc marketing and MASTER IT.

        Bad advice...solo ads are easily one of the best forms of traffic you can get in the IM niche as long as you're using reputable providers with quality traffic.

        Yes there's certainly vendors that send crap traffic, but most beginner-intermediate marketers are MUCH more likely to lose their shirt trying to master Adwords PPC.

        Facebook PPC is a different story....that should be a primary traffic source for virtually all IMers.

    There's tons of solo ads all over the warriorforum, but you do have to search quite a bit if you're looking for something specific.

    There is a lot of good Solo Ad vendors on Facebook and Warrior Forum. But if you are just starting out I would recommend you use Safe Swaps or Solo Checker. There is a platform there where you can order clicks safely.

    Although don't expect people to just point you to the right seller since every list reacts on different offers. So list that is good to the other person who bought the Solo Ads might not be a good fit for your offer.

    The best way is to just buy small amount of clicks and if goes well you can buy more clicks.

    Another one to consider is, If you see 1 - 2 negative review believe them. Some sellers might be honest to majority of the customers but there is a chance that they are screwing on newbies and you don't want to be that person.

    I hope it helps

    Check out reviews and stats of solo ad vendors from safe-swaps. Also check out for recommendations from someone who belongs to your niche. You can also post a JV here to find solo ad sellers, although the commissions will be different.

    Would you be interested in banking clicks with me?
    How it works is :
    you send me a number of clicks to my offer(url), lets say 100, whether it takes a week
    or a month, no prob. Once you reach the agreed upon number of clicks, you send me a message
    and i return the favor.
    This is a lot easier that having to worry about small adsaps everey day.
    I always over delivery my clicks.
