I’ll get right to the point and tell you what I’m talking about: Solo Ads Now, you may know what I’m talking about and you may not… so let me give you a quick run down.
And if you DO KNOW what Solo Ads are, but you think you know all there is to know… well, just TRUST ME and read on. Because I’m going to show you something nobody else has showed you in this industry, guaranteed.
Q: What is a solo ad?
A: It’s an email to somebody else’s list (or newsletter) containing an ad and link to YOUR OFFER. The cost of these mailings is almost always determined by a pre-agreed upon price and “unique visitor” amount. The general market price per “unique click” is $.30-$.35, depending on how many clicks are purchased. So usually it’s around $300 for 1000 “uniques”.
Q: What is so good about solo ads?
A: Well, as you can see, the traffic is insanely affordable. Try getting clicks on Google to an IM or MMO offer for that price! Yea right! You’d probably pay more like $2-3 per click and the conversions would be far lower. Speaking of conversions, for certain kinds of offers, it’s not unusual to see a 40% opt in rate. In fact, that’s what you should be AIMING FOR! On Google or Facebook, you’re lucky if you can get 15%. Additionally, if you’re attempting to build an email list, it’s the PERFECT traffic source. Why? Because the people who clicked on your link are already predisposed to do exactly what you want them to do… click on email links!
Q: Are solo ads the same as “safe-lists” and “mail drops”?
A: Yea, kind of. Except the arena has shifted dramatically in the last 12-24 months, since those terms were used. Buying an ad to someone else’s list used to be extremely confusing, risky, expensive, and impossible to track. That has all changed.
Results are much easier to predict and gauge… And transparency and accountability has increased to a point where it is now considered completely safe to spend your dollars buying traffic from other individuals. There are people just like you, with lists just like yours, who are offering traffic on a “package” basis. These days, it’s EASY to get anywhere from 100-3000 uniques from a list owner within 24-72 hours.
Buying solo ads is now easier than ever…

There has never been any argument in advertising circles that the most effective business advertising is word-of-mouth advertising.
That’s why direct selling is so dramatically successful as a method of marketing every imaginable product and service, and why direct selling is such a great business in which to be. As a direct salesperson conversationally telling another person why you like a particular product, you are much more convincing advertisement than any TV commercial or magazine ad.
The tremendous persuasiveness of your personal endorsement of a product is what word-of-mouth advertising is all about. Much to the chagrin of professional ad agencies, such word-of-mouth advertising cannot be purchased. But you, as a direct salesperson, can put this special type of advertising power to work for your business.
Because you are fortunate to be on friendly, personal terms with your customers, you can enlist their aid in promoting your services. You can actually turn your present customers into a personal advertising department. All you need to do is master the right way to ask for their help.
Develop Personal Relations
If you learn how to properly ask for their help, your customers will enthusiastically go to work advertising your business. This will help promote your services, lead you to scores of new services, and give you all the valuable benefits of word-of-mouth advertising. There are two types:
Either type can be extremely valuable in multiplying your customer list.
The most important thing to remember is that this kind of help cannot be bought from your customers. It must never seem like you are offering a bribe in exchange for a list of names. As a rule, people will not “sell” their friends to you. Offering an “inducement” also might raise doubts about the quality of your services. If they are as good as you say they are, why should you bribe people for their recommendations?
Remember two very important things about human nature: first, people usually enjoy telling others about products they try and like. Second, people like to be appreciated. One way they get appreciated is by being helpful to others.
In short, offer an incentive for help without appearing to be paying for it.
In this way, you’re thanking the person, not bribing them. They’ll be pleased, won’t feel guilty, and will be more willing the next time you ask.
The next time you call on that customer you should remember to again thank them for their help. Report to them on the reactions of the prospects they suggested. Let the person you know you did call on them, that Mrs. Jones did become a customer and purchased such and such, and that Mrs. Walters was interested but wished to purchase at a later date.
In many cases, after reporting these results, you can obtain a couple of additional prospects from them.
Prospects are the lifeblood of your business. Your greatest asset in direct sales is your inventory of prospective new customers. And there is no better way to maintain that inventory, converting prospects to customers, than by using the power of word-of-mouth advertising …with recommendations from your present, satisfied customers. Put this power to work now and watch your profits and your list of customers multiply.
