Solo Ads is one of the easiest paid traffic methods to implement, especially if you are new to the internet business.
You do not need to learn about any new advertising platform or learn how to create a compelling ad copy or decide what are the keywords to target.
The only thing that you are required to do is to research for the solo ads vendor.
All you have to do next is to contact the seller and make a payment. Of course, you MUST provide him with your website URL that you wish to promote.
Solo ads is most effective for promoting squeeze pages. Please do not buy solo ads to promote your content blog!
But take note, as this is an online world, the truth is that, there are scammers out there. So be careful 😛
Today, let me guide you through some basic steps to get the most of your solo ads investment.
As I am in the make money online industry, the steps below are with reference to this industry. If you are in other niche, the same rules and steps apply too.
Below is the basic guide for you to follow before you buy a solo ads.
1. Basic Rules
– Expensive solo ads doesn’t mean it is quality
– It is not necessary to buy 100% tier 1 traffic, at least 80% tier 1 traffic is good enough
– Buy at most 100 clicks at one time when you are first starting out
– Do not be enticed by the seller’s massive discount when he offered you more clicks
– You must always test the seller first before buying more clicks from the same seller again
– If the clicks are too cheap, then they are too good to be truth
Always remember these basic rules so that you can maxmise the use of your budget.
2. Do Your Research
– Make sure the vendor is in the same niche as you are in
– Check the latest testimonials before you buy solo ads from the vendor
– Make sure they have some testimonials with sales
– Check out for any negative feedback
For internet marketing niche, you can search for “Solo ads Testimonials” on Facebook and you will come across many groups.
Request to join a few of them.
Next, check out their posts after your request to join the groups has been approved.
Select one solo ads seller that you are interested in.
Use the search function and look for the rest of the posts with the name of vendor to see if the vendor has any other feedback.
When you are checking out the testimonials, do take note if there is any sales. You should also try to cross check the buyer of the solo ads on the same group to see if he buys from any other sellers.
If the same pair of seller and buyer keep appearing but without having any other different seller or buyer…
WARNING: They might be fake testimonials.
So you’ll need to do your due diligence to research on the vendor. It should not take you more than 30 minutes to do this.
Repeat the process everything you are looking for a new solo ads vendor.
3. Shortlist A Few Solo Ads Vendor And Contact Them
If you are not sure if they are in your niche, please ask them.
When you are interested to make a purchase, check out the price first.
Tell them that you are new to solo ads and ask them if it is possible to give you a discount.
If you are agreeable to the price, then the vendor will provide you with steps to make the payment. Most of them use PayPal to collect payment.
Also ask them when they will deliver the clicks. Usually, they will inform you when you can expect to receive the clicks.
After that, please provide them with your website URL so that the vendor can send to his list to drive traffic to your website.
4. Receive Your Clicks
After you have received the clicks, most vendors will provide you with the traffic report.
Now, you’ll need to check certain statistics about this report.
Check the unique number of clicks received and the quality of the traffic. How many percent is tier 1 traffic?
Make sure that the numbers tally with what you have purchased.
Scan through the report to check the IP of the traffic sources. If there is an IP address that consistently keep popping up.
Contact the vendor and ask why.
Next, you should also check the number of subscribers that just joined you and if there is any sales.

5. Read The Statistics
Check the optin rate which is the number of new subscribers divided by total number of unique clicks/visitors.
If the percentage is ridiculously low such as less than 10%, you might want to ask the vendor.
A typical internet marketing squeeze page performs at, at least 30% optin rate.
Next, you should check out the number of sales. If there are sales and you earn commission, then you might have a profitable solo ads campaign which earns you free subscribers and commission.
Here you have it. A simple guide for you to follow to get the most out of your solo ads investment.
