Home Business Solo Ads – How to Start a Solo Ad Business












Making money with a Solo Ads Business is easy enough. Yet you cannot even begin without first getting the proper knowledge and required skill through mentoring and coaching. In order to create this type business model and become successful you first need a great coach or course. Often both. Even though there are some courses out there. If you do find one be careful. They sometimes lead you down the wrong path. And the majority will leave you hanging with limited information that may both be incorrect and even detrimental to your success.

There is plenty of interest in becoming a Solo Ads Vendor. Yet many believe something of this nature is overly complex and are fearful of taking it on. This is not the case. For example I’m very slow at learning things and I was able to do this and be incredibly well off from it myself. And even though I don’t teach this one on one type method, I do have a course that is the best in the business.

Finding the right information that is updated and that leads you down the path to success is very important. There is a lot of bad information being past around and just anyone selling clicks as a solo vendor is not always going to teach you the top information you need. Most vendors will happily charge you and take your money even with giving you limited information they’ve learned in the past that is not working very well for them today. 

Those interested in starting their own business within the solo ads niche have most often heard tale of others doing quite well. Making lots of money. I personally know of many members in our FB groups showing 6 figure earnings within 6 months. But it takes a few years to get to these levels. Selling clicks to others who are wanting to pay to promote their offers happens all day every day and hundreds of times per hour. And it is a great way to earn income while delivering value to others in the process.  

That and growing a substantially sized subscribers list you will be able to always earn money from daily. So you earn money selling Solo orders to other members, clients outside the groups, and you also are making money from your own affiliate offers you have sandwiched within your tracking generator. We use click Magick. Take a look at this so you get a good idea of what it is and how it works.

As A Solo Ads Vendor

Solo Ad Vendors are often accused and criticized by the public. Out of ignorance mostly, as many do not know how Solo Ad Vendors really work. So vendors are often accused of promoting using bad lists, and bad products as well. However, it is generally because they promote someone else’s products which are questionable that they are often ridiculed. So they tend to take the rap when a product or offer does not work.

Basically knowledge is needed to even run a solo ads campaign. Most are not aware of needing a funnel, a front end product, a squeeze page, a mid priced upgrade offer and an autoresponder to continually connect with your new subscribers you get.

And also when a person fails to make money. Even though it was the buyer of the solo ad itself, that was at fault. The person who asked the Solo Ads Vendor to promote their poorly working product,  or a very poorly designed training course, in an email broadcast, is the real culprit here. Not the Solo Ads guy.

Many people who have products, or they are an affiliate to software products, look to someone with a huge list in order to get their product seen by subscribers. Enter the Solo Ads Vendor. The person with the product to promote will buy clicks from Solo Ad Vendors to do get the product seen. The seller buys as many clicks as they can afford to buy. But most expect fast and crazy results! That is not why we run a campaign. We buy solos to build a list. A list we can then communicate with to entice them to purchase our offer. If we get a sale up front when buying solos then that is nice. But not something that happens readily each time.


What is a Solo Ad Vendor?

You must first understand that the majority of people online start out thinking they can make a fortune. Instantly even, by marketing products through solo ads. Many newbies also believe the hype that they will become rich just by clicking a button or two every few days for a few minutes. Because of this, many target this type group of people. Especially anyone that offers a service like a Solo Ad Vendor.

Opportunity is huge when it comes to helping others advertise online. So, because there are so many easy salable people out there, lots of people decide to promote so called shiny object offers just to make a few easy bucks each day. And they need a way to target people. Most will take the slow road of targeting traffic through SEO, and free marketing. Others, will gladly pay to make money.

New online marketers will believe just about anything someone says, as they do not know any better. It’s actually a shame that marketing has come to this. That people are lied to and taken advantage of. But so is the case here on the internet. A Solo Ad person will try to help someone who needs to reach traffic, by selling them clicks. The Solo Ad person promotes a sellers product to his own list in order to reach the traffic, and be able to charge a fee for this service.

But not everyone is advertising great and helpful products. Solo Ad Vendors have gotten a bad rap, but only because they rent out their list to people like this. Not intentionally trying to wrong someone, but merely trying to make money. Thinking the seller does have a decent product, the Solo Ad is created and ran. When in fact if that seller has a spammy product…Many complain and it normally comes back to the person that provided the list which was advertised to. Here lies the conundrum.

Solo Ad Vendors rent out their huge lists they’ve built, to buyers who market anything and everything on the internet. Often called buying clicks. Or paid for advertising. Buyers will pay to get their link in front of a huge list of new and potential subscribers. So they buy clicks from Solo Ad Vendors, who have built their list over time by promoting their own products.

Even though there are often great products being marketed this way, some speculate that many people are just spamming others to get more addresses so they build their own list they can then market to, later on. These types often promote worthless products in order to grow such a list. It is one reason why Solo Ad Vendors have taken lots of heat with this type of business.

Because of the misuse from sellers with shiny and attracting ad offers who just want to build a bigger list they can sell to others, the so called legit Solo Ad Vendors see many questionable eye-brows being raised. But likewise with anyone offering to advertise products. People tend to cast blame on the wrong person most the time. It happens with any service available today, whether online or off.

We cannot email worthless products and expect to make money online. It just doesn’t work. So mostly people are promoting products that do indeed convert well, especially when having to pay for clicks. That means the products being marketed through a Solo Ad Vendors list are good products. And in this case there are very few complaints.


More About the Solo Ads Business

A solo ad vendor uses this type of marketing to their advantage, but it does not mean they take advantage of others. They take into consideration the majority of people online wanting to get rich quick, of course. But for the most part, a Solo Ads Vendor is trying to help direct tens of thousands of people to find these good products or programs being offered, which are legit.

Solo Ad Vendors provide a great service. Not hype or scams. I’m sure however there are some with huge lists that just do care about the quality of what or who they promote. This happens in any business everywhere though. Not just online.

Shiny object or attracting ads are everywhere. Shiny lures. There will always be this type of stuff going on. Spammy type offers and other stuff that does not work no matter how it is worded or advertised. In other words, something that is being sold, that is known not to work. Spammy software, programs and products.

So it is the job of the Solo Ad Vendors to make sure that the person they advertise for, has a legit product being promoted. Even though not so much a part of a Solo Ad guys own business to know these details .I think it only fair that they have a sense of integrity. Its important to be able to say no, if the product someone asks them to offer, is known to be a scam. That they choose not to have anything to do with that type of online marketer. 

Millions of new online marketers, and even more experienced marketers will click on these so called shiny object offers that are worthless. Sign in pages are out there by the millions saying you can fill in the blanks and then become rich over night. This cannot be helped. As there is no law enforcement.

Opportunity seekers are abundant online, and they are taken advantage of by unscrupulous types. And they always will be. It is not the solo ad vendor that causes people to want to promote instant success products. Or software that just does not work. The Solo Ad Vendors sometimes get stuck in the middle.

It is not the Solo Ad Vendors fault they promote someone’s offer and that offer causes another person to fail to become wealthy. Because the internet is full of advertisements just like this.


Solo Ads – Interesting Facts

“I made $10,000.00 dollars in less than 23 days.” Or, “Make instant cash by duplicating my secret system!” Or, “Grow your business over night with this seldom used secret formula.”

The Solo Ads Vendor only advertises what the buyer of the solo ad, has to offer. The offer is not the Solo Ad Vendors offer, but someone else’s offer. Solo ad Sellers promote the guys offer because they are being paid to do so. What that offer is, is seldom checked out in detail. Nor does a Solo Ad Vendor want to spend hours going over someone else’s product. They are not the Police.

But as stated before, if the Solo Ads Vendor knows the offer he is expected to promote for someone is bogus, he has the right not to promote it, and should refuse to make any money in this way. No matter how lucrative.

Imagine for a moment that quick get rich stuff like this really did work.That stuff like this really did make people money online. The whole world would then be online clicking away from their home office or den, instead of working a regular job. Right? But very few people who get online ever make any money. Because online marketing is much more difficult and time consuming than most people are lead to believe. And most will give up after the first few weeks when they fail to make any money at all.

The reason people are deceived, is because of scammers who promote worthless products for cash. With these shiny object advertisements (or scams) from people who want to get rich themselves, the internet world is full to the brim of deception. And false promises.These types always want to try and make a quick buck and they promote such scandalous offers just to make money themselves. Off of so called ‘unsuspecting newbies,’ who are seeking instant riches online. 

The solo ads vendor is one who promotes and helps people reach an audience by emailing their own list, or renting out such list for cash from buyers. Solo ads work well and always will. But often times the Solo Ad Vendor is seen as part of this percentage of people who are just trying to make a fast buck. They are not. They merely offer a service to anyone who wants to advertise.

Solo ad vendors sell a portion of their list to online marketers. This enables the buyer of the solo ad to reach people and show them their online offers through emails. Instead of using free marketing techniques and strategies, persons who buy ads from solo vendors are willing to pay to reach their traffic, as long as they see good results.

People who have a product, whether their own or an affiliate product, are willing to buy clicks which means the Solo Ad Vendors provide them with a certain amount of addresses. By sending out a broadcast to our own list, or (an email) a vendor will place the buyers link inside such broadcast. When someone clicks on the emails targeted link, a click is generated. The buyer pays the vendor for these clicks. 


What is Buying Clicks

The vendor sells clicks to anyone wanting access to their list. A click is generated when someone clicks on an email url. Thousands pay for this Solo Ad Service, of buying clicks to promote their products. Normally because they have a product that converts, and it becomes a matter of time and numbers before the seller makes a profit by promoting under a Solo Ad Vendor. Vendors use their very own subscribers list to deliver these offers to.

But a click is not an open, even though clicks are what are sold to the seller. A seller needs to get opens. They need to see that their email advertisement, or broadcast, is going to get opens. This way they know their product was being viewed.

The vendor constantly has to replace those on his list. People get tired of being sent products each day, and then unsubscribe. So the Solo Ads Vendor has to keep a fresh list of new subscribers coming in.


A click is generated when a link has been clicked on

And an ‘open’ is generated when someone opens the link inside this email and takes a look at the offer from the email. Each is calculated and tracked. These Clicks and Opens have to be tracked so that the buyer and seller know when the orders quota has been reached.

If a person buys 100 clicks, they often only get 30 to 40 percent open rate. And the average cost of 100 clicks is $35.00. If you get 35 opens for $35 dollars, you’ve just paid one dollar to advertise your product to that one subscriber on the Vendors list. Which is about the going rate.

Being a Solo ads provider or vendor means we offer a service. We help people get their products or programs to a targeted group of opportunity seekers. The vendor puts the offer in some ones inbox who is looking for this type of opportunity. Paid advertising is big business on the internet and it works very well. When done correctly with products that convert well.

Online Marketers know that if they pay to reach people, a certain amount of these people will buy their product. So as long as they make a small profit during this exchange, money out, verses more money in, it is a win-win situation.

They then duplicate this on a daily basis to make money and grow or scale up their marketing business. Buying solo ads is just one way to scale up something that is already working.

Solo Ad vendors are not in the business to just make money and do nothing for their clients. They are in the business to sell clicks, sure. But not just sell clicks. They provide a service to millions and help each client advertise product offers so they an make money.

Solo ad vendors market themselves in many different ways. and also know if they have a happy customer or client who is getting opens at a high rate and making money, that person will return and buy more clicks from them. Thus the Solo Ads Vendor make a profit. And builds a huge list at the same time, ensuring high percentages of opens for their next buyer. As well as a timely and fast order.


Testimonials and Feedback

So a big part of the business-end of being a solo ads provider comes from word-of-mouth. Repeat business will not happen if a solo ads vendor has poor results, known as optins. As long as we keep a fresh list of subscribers and help them make sales,  we will always have people wanting to pay buy from us.

We easily justify our service because we know a small percentage of people online are able to now find legitimate programs that help.

In the Solo ads business a certain amount of clicks means the buyer has paid us for a certain amount of people clicking on their link they’ve asked us to promote to our list by way of an email message. But our buyers don’t just want a click, they are wanting the person on the other end to open the mail. click on the offer link, and then buy that offer! When that happens your clients are very happy and will return. 

Just having someone click a link and then leave the page or the email they see and not opening it, is common and happens often. Even though it counts as a click, it is tracked but has no value. So it does no good for the buyer who has paid for say 100 clicks to just get an email clicked opened and a link clicked on. It costs them money. 

You Can Make $35 Every 24 Hours

For instance. Starting out if you have a list large enough, you can earn the going rate for clicks. And process an order of 100 clicks for someone. The cost in our members groups are about .30 to .50 cents. I’m using .35 as an example. Within the groups we sell and promote our service to (other members as well). If I sell someone 100 clicks, for $35 dollars, that is .35 cents per click.  And if they have a great offer and great squeeze page all set up, called a funnel, I would send a broadcast email to my list until my tracking shows they got these 100 clicks they paid for.

That means 100 people have opened the email they received. But it does not mean the link inside was viewed. Or that the link inside was even clicked on. It just counts as a click when the URL is clicked on.

Now out of these 100 clicks, you would hopefully go on to get an average of  about 30 to 40 percent of these clicks, turn into real opens and views. The advertisement is looked at, which gives the buyer of the solo ad a chance to sell that product or offer. When a buyer sells an offer it will perhaps pay for their solo ads, and even go on to turn a quick profit. Or make even more money so they can go buy more clicks.

It’s not enough to sell someone a click though. The buyer needs to get their links opened and viewed. Only an open will result in a sale. So it takes many clicks, many opens and many people looking at their offers to eventually sell a product or program being advertised. People do buy, but only a small percentage. Maybe 1 to 3 percent. So it’s a numbers game of course. The more numbers, the more sales.

This open and click rate is tracked using a tracking software like click magic. It keeps everyone honest. And also to have the information and stats at our fingertips so we can make a better funnel, a more profitable offer, and test as we go so we can always improve what system we have.

Will you ever sell clicks to someone that is not tracking the link they give you? It happens.  But only every now and again. When this happens we go by our own stats. Most will already know that they need to track their links for keeping a record and getting the best results by being able to change and upgrade their funnel if it is not working adequately. But some do not. So the vendor will usually help advice newer members.

Keeping track of the clicks and opens, allows to further make a better or improved converting broadcast, a better converting link, or advertisement, and better squeeze pages and thank you pages, and better converting bonuses and offers that are linked onto the thank you pages. Testing is important when first starting out.

All these things work together to get a higher percentage of opens per this sample given before of 100 clicks that were purchased. An open rate of 50 percent is not out of the ordinary from those who know how to create good ads and offer highly converting products. But for the most part, a range of 25 to 40 opens per 100 clicks is the norm.

The higher percentages are created from experienced marketers who know how to create great funnels and have great products. Lessor percentages are obtained from newer marketers who are just getting started.

It is not the solo ad vendors responsibility to over-see the products or advertisements and the quality of the above. This rests on the buyers who are using a solo ad vendor. Even though in most cases if the percentages are poor, the solo ads vendor will be accused of not having a good list. When it is very seldom their fault at all.


Conclusion to Solo Ad Business

  1. I am interested in how much you charge for clicks… I am interested in getting your services for that.

  2. Hi Rick, do you have any room for a new person? i am looking to learn solo ads

  3. Hey Rick,

    Very nice article. Every internet business has a life cycle until it gets too saturated, do you think solo-ads business still has life in it after almost 5years from when it was started first ?
    Incase your answer is yes . I would like to get trained if you have spot left.

    • Things change true enough. But mostly we have to change with the times or we get left behind. Most everything to do with internet marketing has changed as well, but nothing has completely just quit working. And neither will solo ad marketing. It does change, and even changes each year. Yet it will be around for many years to come. Think of it as one more way to make an income stream. You will not put all your investments in this one business, it is not smart to do that. As we have no hold on what happens in the future. Life as we know it could end tomorrow. So as long as you treat solo ads as a income stream, you will be fine. And it may be here longer than myself since I’m 60!

      Thanks for connecting and hope I’ve helped you to understand this.

  4. Thanks for the read.

    I have always wondered how to be on the other side of ads when it came to working online. You have done a good way of giving some insight on to how it actually works. If it wasn’t so expensive to learn everything I would give it a shot.

    Thanks again!

    • Thank you Derek. Yes nothing is cheap if you want fast and quality results online. Free is free but takes forever! I wish I had of known this when I first started years ago. But so glad I had a friend get involved and then show me the ropes.

      One thing you can do is grow it a little at a time. Most do that anyway. Or like me when I got started, I choice to go with Wealthy Affiliate. I earn a great income stream from that and help people make money online there.

    • Yes you are correct. It is one business model that you can see the money flowing in and out. More in than out! Thanks for the comment and glad you got the chance to read the article. If you know anyone wanting to make a dream come true, have them contact me and start ASAP> I have room to help one student at this time. Rick

  6. Rick, this is a very interesting and well thought out concept here. From the looks of it though I am not quite ready to get into this part of the pool. My website is still very young and I don’t have the cash up front to go down this road. However I will definitely keep this in mind as things continue to grow for me. Thanks for introducing me to a new concept to help me relieve my financial situation.

    • Thanks for the comment James. We all have things we need to do at first to learn marketing. But most feel comfort in one place which they should be growing in instead of feeling comfort. Online marketing is something we need to be thrashing about, failing fast and taking on more than we can chew. That is how we accelerate our performance and success. When we kick back and move slowly, our results come this way as well.

      When you are ready. Contact me. I have one spot open to help someone earn $3000 per month in the next 90 days. At least you are taking the right steps and learning at the Wealthy Affiliate program.
