Question 1: What kind of offers converts the best with solo ads?
Usually, low ticket offers with multiple steps upsell to high ticket offers convert works well.
What’s even better is free trial offers or $1 trial offers. Because people are defensive when you up front ask them for money.
But when you give them a chance to try it out first, the percentage of people who will continue and upgrade might surprise you.
But of course, a successful trial offer relies on how well a funnel upsells. If you’re promoting MLM or business opportunities, you want to promote companies that have multiple upsells to high tickets.
The more the better, because once you refer a customer to the company, the customer might spend $10,000+ and those commissions go to you.
The real money is on the backend and the lifetime value of the customer.If you’re promoting CPA offers, I would recommend you check the top offer list of the network and split test which one works the best for you.
If you have an affiliate manager, definitely ask him or her the top converting offers and try from there.
Question 2: What is better when it comes to getting conversions? Mixed Clicks, Pure Solos, Tier 1 only Solo Ads or something else?
Tier 1 only would convert the best, just because most of your customers will come from Tier 1 countries: United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, and New Zealand.
Tier 1 is higher quality, but it’s more expensive than the regularly mixed clicks or pure solo.
At the end of the day, it’s all about ROI.
So you want to use the one that gives you highest ROI by comparing the cost and revenue it brings in.
Question 3: How are solo ads different from FB Ads? Which is better according to you?
Solo ads and FB ads are completely different beasts.
When it comes to solo ads, all you need is a link and your campaign can be up and running. With Facebook ads, you need to find out the right targeting and split test ads.
The downside with solo ads is that there are many vendors who sell crap quality traffic or even bots. So, you’ll need to do your research to find trustworthy solo sellers.
One of the downsides of using Facebook, your account might get ban before you know it. Facebook is very strict when it comes to affiliate offers.
If you’re promoting business opportunity, MLM, Crypto, weight loss kind of affiliate offers, your ad account could be easily banned.
So which one is better really depends on what you like and what type of offers you’re working with, because both traffic sources have people making millions from them.
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).
I think the following steps are how most people find success in the solo ads:
(1) Find a proven converting offer.
(2) Build your own funnel around it, with your own squeeze page and autoresponder.
(3) Find good vendors and scale.
The most important thing is branding yourself. I think the hack is realizing there is no hack (well, there is the hack when you’re super experienced).
The hard cold truth is, people who only look for hacks, would not know how to utilize the hack even it was given to them.
The problem is that most people starting out online only looking for hacks, they keep looking for the next shiny object which made them have no real foundation of skill at all.
So I think the hack, is to have the right mindset.
Question 5: What is the biggest mistake people make while buying solo ads?
They try out 100 or 200 clicks and say it doesn’t work without even doing and split testing.
Question 6: What are the opt-in and conversion rates can be expected from a solo ad run?
I consider an average opt-in rate to be 40%+. A good opt-in rate is 50%+.
Question 7: How should the follow-up sequence be? 1 email per day? Value Driven? Pure Push Marketing Emails? or something else?
14 day follow up sequence with 1 email per day tend to work well for me.
Build a good relationship with your leads with positioning yourself in their mind. So give them a chance to connect with you on Facebook or any social media channel.
That way they’ll know you’re a real person and more likely to trust you and do business with you.
The first follow up sequence is good to give your subscribers free report, give them something valuable. You want to provide value right when the subscriber enters your list.
Question 8: What are the top 5 products/services that you just can’t run your business without?
(1) Tracking Software
(2) Landing Page Software
Question 9: What is your #1 tip for anyone using solo ads to promote their business?

Question 10: Where can the readers find you to buy clicks from you?
