A Leap Into The Unknown – Once more into the breach dear friends once more.
I am not known for my patience, and while I am happy to work on Free traffic strategies, I want to see results like yesterday.
So I decided to test my funnel using some paid advertising, in this case, Solo Ad’s
Quick and dirty methinks; I am not expecting much out this and defiantly no sales to start with.
So with the Solo Ad’s best practice guide in hand, I headed off into the Swamp Solo Ad’s to see what I could find.
I reached out to some posters on the Facebook Group Solo Ad Testimonials to see if I could get answers to some questions
- Have you sent traffic to this type of offer recently – you want a No to this
- Do you refresh your list regularly – this clearly should be Yes
- How do you update your list – If they say through Solo Ad’s give em a miss
- Do you provide a tracking report – again this must be Yes
I was looking for at least 80% tear 1 traffic and someone with good testimonials.
Know these species of marketer, those who sell solo ads, are not the quickest at coming back. But some did, and I was able to narrow the field down.
Long story short I picked one and placed my order.
All they needed was the link and. of course my money.
As I mentioned the link lets quickly talk about tracking. You MUST have a link you can track, you need to be able to see the unique IP address to make sure they are real subscribers.
Let’s talk Brass Tacks
Ordered 100 clicks
Opt-ins – 24
% Opt-in – 21.8%
Ok, so I got an ok opt-in rate, nothing to write home about.
The question is do they engage with the follow-up and will I get any sales, that’s is the million dollar question.
But I can’t answer that here; that’s for another post another day.
Will I do more solo Ad’s – well yes, I understand that it is lower quality traffic, but it is a quick way to test an offer or funnel.
So that’s it for this post I hope you found it interesting.
