Question 1: What kind of offers convert the best with solo ads?
Anything from info products, to tools that can help people succeed online. Even high end coaching services and done for you systems if the warm-up process, funnel, and brand is fully optimized from the customer’s site.
Question 2: What is better when it comes to getting conversions? Mixed Clicks, Pure Solos, Tier 1 only Solo Ads or something else?
Mixed Clicks are better in giving you more leads. Pure Solos give you more immediate sales but most of the timeless leads. Tier 1 only is always the better option as Tier 1 is where the spending power is.
Question 3: How are solo ads different from FB Ads? Which is better according to you?
You cannot buy solo ads to promote your restaurant or promote your product (i.e handbag). This is for FB Ads. Each has its purpose. But for Make Money Online, Bizops and things that help people succeed online, Solo Ads are better because:
(1) FB will ban you if you don’t know how to set up your funnel properly.
(2) It will probably cost you more with FB ads to get the same results. Unless you take FB Ads seriously and gain experience, which takes time, don’t waste your money.
(3) Solo Ads give you immediate action (if you set up a proper funnel) without you having to understand the technical stuff of making an ad on FB.
(4) You get a lot of tips from a good Solo Ad Vendor for free. How to optimize your landing page, your funnel etc. If you stay long in the game, you will understand that the tips you got from good Solo Ad Vendors at the beginning were among the best you could get.
Question 4: What is the #1 solo ad buying hack that you can tell us? (Since most of the readers are going to be buyers of solo ads).
Concentrate on building your list with proper follow-up sequence and branding. And slowly go for the high-end kill.
Question 5: What is the biggest mistake people make while buying solo ads?
They don’t understand the numbers game. Results are about numbers.
If you don’t have huge numbers in front of you to make a good evaluation of the result, you are just playing around. A 100 or 200 or 300 clicks order and then quit isn’t going to cut it.
This is true for all businesses. You call 100 prospects to close 1 sale. You don’t call 2 prospects and expect them to buy from you, then quit if they don’t.
Question 6: What kind of opt-in and conversion rates can be expected from a solo ad run?
Anything above 40% opt-in is considered a good result. A 0.5%+ conversion shows that you are on the right path. Again you need to have huge numbers in front of you to make a very good evaluation.
For example, you can buy 200 clicks and make 0 sales, but then buy 800 and make 6 sales. In the 200 clicks you have 0% conversion, but in 1000 you have 0.6% conversion. The more the better the evaluation.
Question 7: How should the follow-up sequence be? 1 email per day? Value Driven? Pure Push Marketing Emails? or something else?
1 email per day, value-driven warm up with low offers, then scaling up to your high end offers. Low offers should be congruent with high end offers.
Question 8: What are the top 5 products/services that you just can’t run your business without?
(1) Click Tracking Software
(4) My own email hosting system
(5) Domain or hosting
Question 9: What is your #1 tip for anyone using solo ads to promote their business?
Make thorough research into the solo ads market before buying. There are a lot of very good solo ad vendors, but there are also scammers out there.
Question 10: Where can the readers find you to buy clicks from you?
