Been getting back into Solo Ads

Posted by discrat on May 20, 2017 in Uncategorized |

Yeah its been awhile since I was doing Solo Ads to build my email List. But I got with a fellow Warrior and friend Chris Mollo who is an expert at solo ads. This guy has literally built a full time business based on using solo ads for about 90% of his traffic source.


I know he bucks the trend as most IMers say solo ads are just junk traffic  that is composed of people on umpteen lists getting spam over and over in their inbox  🙁


Well, Chris has really helped me, almost like a coach and he has done it for free.


Unbelievable really  🙂


Here are my Results for the first 4 of have run…


1. 04-20-17
100 Clicks- $40
Opitn rate- 52.8%
No. Optins- 57
1 Sale – Lee Murray Down and Dirty LB – $8.67
***.$55 cents per lead


2. 04-24-17  300 Clicks – $100
149 optins 43.3 % optin
1 Sale : Down and Dirty $8.67
*****$.61 per lead



3. 05-0-17 – $100 for 300 clicks
171 Optins 50.3%
1 sale 8 minute – $5.71
***.55  per lead



4. 05-15-17 – $110 for 300 clicks
146 optin 41.5%
1 sale Instafilliate – $47.52
***** $.42per lead





I have to admit Iam very encouraged. I did not break even with the OTO sales but still look at my cost per lead. Pretty nice, huh ??


Here is the things with Solos to be successful:

1.You must have a List of quality Vendors and  you can find on Facebook groups.. Here is the best one because it has Solo Vendors whose Customers had actual Sales.


2. Your  Sq. Page is crucial. You must have 40% optin Rate. No exceptions. Chris helped me out with this tremendously. He was a lifesaver.

3. Find quality OTO affiliate  Offers that you can make money back or even break even with the initial run of the Solo Ad.


4.Set up Follow Up emails that build a rapport with these solo ad optins.It’s tough but somehow you’re going to have to distinguish yourself from all the other Lists they are on. In my first intro. follow up I tell them a little about myself and even put a picture of me in it. Be creative and think of ways you can engage with them. Think outside of the Box !


The potential is definitely there for Solo Ads. But you must seek quality Vendors. Even with the best Vendors you are going to get Leads that are getting hit with many emails from other Lists. That’s just the nature of Solo Ads.


So you must really make yourself stand apart from the other in your Follow Ups and Broadcasts. Be original and unique and personable as well as helpful with excellentcontent


And You need to make sure your Sq. PAge Converts. That’s a must !!


The best thing to do is start out small with 100 clicks and gauge and test and keep the Vendors that produce some sales and higher optin rates.
