I have been thinking about opening up my substantial email lists for solo ads.

I have a tons of buyers in all verticals and an absolutely HUGE list of freebie people.

My lists are in many verticals: bizop, mlm, gaming, sweepstakes, coupons, stock market, dating... and many others.

The buyers from each list are obviously pure gold, but the freebie people are still worth something.

I am thinking if I do this, to make a pricing distinction like $0.75 cpc for buyers and $0.30 cpc for freebie or something like that.

Is this an accepted practice for solo ad sellers? Any opinion on my price points?

Right now still deciding if I want to do this but this info will help me decide. Please no PMs about solo deals, I am not ready to pull the trigger.

    Can't you make money off your list considering the fact that there are tons of CPA programs out there and you say you cover lots of niches?

      I can and I do. My hands are full though with managing the acquisition of all these people to my list. So anything that can make my monetization side easier, even if its less profitable, is still worth looking into.

        Different "tiers" of visitors is very common.

        Run of list - Buyers - Funnel clicks - 100% USA - etc.

        Price depends on the quality of traffic delivered. Of course you would charge more for buyers then "run of list." You would put a premium on "all USA" or "T1" traffic.

    Keep your prices as high as the market will pay. If your list produces a large number of buyers don't be afraid to raise your prices a lot.

    You want to maximize your profit while minimizing the number of solo ads you send to your list.

    If you're just starting out, I would suggest you go for 0.30 to 0.35 cpc for freebies list and then 0.65 to 0.85 for buyers list as this will help you get more orders as soon as possible

      I don't see many sellers offering clicks as low as .35, even for funnel clicks or clicks that are not tier 1. I would think you can get .50 per click for a solo with at least 70% tier 1 traffic and if you were to sell all tier 1 clicks, you can get as high as .75. For straight buyer traffic I have personally paid $1 or more per click and still ended up making a profit on the solo. Buyer traffic from your niche is the absolute best traffic you can get.

        All my traffic is 100% USA. I have about 4% other countries (mostly CA and UK) but I filter it out because I don't have enough to do much with it on its own.

    Check out udimi.com and see what the market is offering. It is free to join and if you are considering offering your list to the public, this is a good platform to list your services.

  • You can only charge what the market will pay and it's somewhere around 50 cents the highest I have ever seen was just under a dollar, and I doubt all solo sellers sell all their inventory.
