Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest blog! Something amazing has happened this week: I finally made my first sale! And it’s all thanks to this thing called solo ads 🙂
Let me tell you all about it.
What are solo ads?
If you’re not really familiar with traffic generation, you’re probably wondering what solo ads are. Well, solo ads are a form of paid traffic that can be used to generate a fast lead flow.
It’s basic concept is really simple: you leverage someone else’s email list. You pay this person (also called a vendor) a certain amount of money per click and they will make sure to get your offer to their email list and get you the number of clicks you paid for.
It really is a fast form of traffic because most vendors can get you this number of clicks within a few days (depending on the number of clicks you ordered). All these clicks are now, thus, leads on your own email list and you can keep sending them emails or reminders to buy the product that you’re offering.
As you’re probably already starting to see, it is a very easy and fast form of traffic generation. The only thing you generally have to do is find a good vendor. That’s it. Easy right?
You don’t even have to write your own email most of the time, since vendors normally want to write the email they will send out with your offer fór you. But always make sure to ask them if you can see the email before they send it out!
Finding a good vendor
But how do you find a good vendor? A good place to start are Facebook groups. There are certain groups that have solo ads testimonials, so you can read other people’s experiences with certain vendors. This is a great way to single out the good ones!
What I paid the most attention to in my search was the amount of good testimonials a vendor had and whether their solo ads resulted in sales. After all, you can have a great experience with a vendor, but if it doesn’t result in sales, you’ve only lost money…
Once you’ve found a vendor you have a good feeling about you should reach out to them and ask them a couple of questions. For example, ask them how they have built their own email list? How many people are added to their list every day? When will they be ready to start delivering your clicks? Can you see the email before they send it to their email list?
If you’re satisfied with the answers you received you can buy the number of clicks you want and start the process. Don’t start out with too many clicks at once and give it a test run first! That way, if it’s not what you expected, you won’t have lost too much money 😉
My first solo ad
I’m very happy with the vendor I’ve chosen and would certainly do business with him again! He was very fast with responding to the emails I sent him and I really liked the email he’d written for my offer.
Best of all was, of course, the fact that it actually resulted in my first sale! And not just one sale, but two! One of my new customers even bought an upsell. This means that I’ve earned my very first $14.75 with affiliate marketing! I was so excited (and still am)!
“Big things have small beginnings”
This all happened on the first day, and unfortunately, it didn’t result in more sales in the days after that… But I’m still very happy with the results! And now that the first leads are in my email list, I can continue to send them offers. So who knows, maybe it will result in even more sales in the future 🙂
