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

Rick Bell – SABC
Making money with a Solo Ads Business is easy! Yet you do need a bit of understanding and a bit of skill. Which can be built just by taking it one step at a time. My name is Rick and I’ve helped hundreds of my students start earning on the internet using Solo Ads. Not only do they earn income from the clicks, they set up their own product offers and affiliate offers and earn from these as well.


How I got my start with online marketing and
earning income like nobodies business!


Years ago it was that you needed a coach and lots of money to get started. And, even though there are some courses out there, now, most do not go into the depth of everything involved…Which means you end up learning just enough to have to go spend more money and learn even more!

Starting off down the wrong path is not my idea of success. And I’m sure not yours either. My experience with learning from several different coaches is that not anyone coach specialized in every detail. The majority of mentors and coaches will leave you hanging with limited information that may both be incorrect and even detrimental to your success.

But what if you could become a part of this once limited world of revenue and with it only taking a few hours each day to earn a full-time income? My students can show you how they do it. And I can show you how I do it. To see if you qualify for a Solo Ads Business, contact me here and let’s find out. No charge for the chat! As I’m here to help.

Those interested in starting their own business within the solo ads niche have most often heard the 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 to a year. But also see many struggling and even lying about their limited success. Why?

It comes down to the information being passed down. You must get the best training if you want to be the best.

Even if you are not starting a Solo Ads Business. This post has plenty of information about using solos and what to expect. Read It!

Are You Ready To Be GREAT?

Benefits Of A Solid Solo Ads Business

  • Working only a few hours each day sending a few broadcasts swipes to your list.
  • Being able to see real money and real numbers added to your account so that you can scale and grow fast. 
  • Easy to scale this type business model. Very little work for fast and easy results.
  • Very profitable as a you can earn as you grow. And scale to huge numbers!



 ⦁ Selling Solo Ads is so easy to do that it makes perfect sense to get involved. Start now to be earning in less than 90 days.
 ⦁ Once the Solo Ad business is learned you can start making money almost immediately. Up to you how fast you want to grow.
 ⦁ Fast start up and even fast money coming in daily. Only you decide how much you want to make each day.
 ⦁ A Solo Ad Service helps others increase their product sales and grow their business. Which means you give value, you get cash!
 ⦁ You are able to grow a huge list of subscribers and be in demand in very little time. While making huge profits.
 ⦁ Most Solo Ad Vendors promote their own products to their own huge lists so as to make even more money than they ever need.



⦁  Start up costs can be quite expensive due to mentoring requirements and the knowledge needed.The Solo Ads Business is not something you can learn for free.
⦁  Only basics of this business are discussed or outlined in any free blogs or articles. False information can cause big problems as you grow.                     
⦁  The mentoring to create such a rapid growth business online, requires money up front. So those not able to afford to spend $1000 to $10,000 on private lessons will be left out.
⦁  Beyond the cost to get started. Finding a great coach is difficult.


But it does not mean you are taking much risks. I only say the Cons because there are and can be issues of some wanting to have a six figure business and want to do it for no cost and not willing to invest. If you want to start a six-figure business. You must first have money and time to invest. Otherwise, you are barking up the wrong tree.

As A Solo Ads Vendor

Solo Ad Vendors are often thought of as spammers. But it is only out of ignorance mostly, as many do not know how Solo Ad Vendors really work. Or even what they do. 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 questions that they are often ridiculed. So they tend to take the rap when a product or offer does not work. 

And yes there are business out their selling robot based names and addresses for pennies, yet these never work. So the flack is usually directed at these as being the scammers. Basically, knowledge is needed to even run a solo ads campaign. And to do it legit is nothing short of having a symphony of beautiful music playing in the background. 

Many people who have products, or they are an affiliate marketer to product offers, 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 Ads Vendor?

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 by way of a solo ad. Buyers will pay to get their link offers (hopefully High Converting Offers)  in front of a huge list of new and potential subscribers. A click is anyone who happens across the email broadcast with a link offer or text link which is actively taking the visitor to a sign in page, which does the promoting of the product for them via a vsl video sales page or webinar, or even just a video or website. Then the emailing the clients do is the most important part. If you buy clicks, you must have a way to target your new subscribers. Through using an autoresponder. Which is easy enough to set up and then send one email a day for up to 30 days.

Are Solo Ads A Scam?

Even though there are often great products being marketed via Solo Ads. Many have given Solos a bad reputation. But that could be said with any online marketing, these days. 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. Solo Ads are not scams. These are real people offering services to help others get the word out about their offers.

But yest there are those who are spamming and scamming the internet daily. They come in all shapes and sizes. Their are unscrupulous solo vendors as well as the same types using other niches in other markets. So one has to be careful before sending money to someone they don’t know. Even with buying Solos. 

One of the best ways to learn who is great and who is “Bad” Is to understand Solos and even become a vendor yourself which you would learn the tricks of the trade and easily be able to spot those who are not professional. Like someone selling 5000 clicks to you for $35 dollars? No way! The going prices are .30 to .95 for 100 clicks. So $35 should get you 100 clicks, with about 30 to 50 leads. That you can re-target in the future.

Worthless Product Offers

We cannot email worthless products and expect to make money online. It just doesn’t work. So mostly to become wealthy over time, we must be 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 normally great products. And in this case there are very few complaints. Because sales are made on the front end, when buying clicks, and many sales are made thereafter on the back end when sending emails to the new subscribers.

But one needs to know about marketing and what is working and what isn’t working. If you are a vendor you will have to turn many clients down just simply because they do not have the right information and their ads will never do well. Some vendors step up and even help these new marketers. Yet there is not much money in helping newbies. It is a matter of choice that I tend to take my time to do so.


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. Not bad ones.

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.

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 subscriber’s 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 one’s 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, versus 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 or low percentage options. As long as we keep a fresh list of subscribers and help them clients make sales, we will always have people wanting to pay buy from us. Too many in fact.

A Solo Ad provider is merely a connecting link and works as an advertiser. We know a percentage of people are being helped so they can find legitimate programs that earn them revenue.

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. 

Breaking It Down: $35 Every 24 Hours Starting Out…

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. If you are on our team we buy clicks from our students to get them started. 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. So I’ve made $35 bucks for setting up a couple of emails and setting up tracking. About ten minutes work.

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 only counts as a click when the URL is clicked on and our tracking software picks it up as a click.. Yes I know .35 cents does not sound like much. But multiply that times 1000 per day! 

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

Starting a solo ads business will allow you to build your own list of subscribers in which you can promote your own offers to as you sell clicks to others. Your list grows, and the larger it becomes the more money you are able to make over time and each and every day.

Everyone always says the money is in the list. Yes and No. It is definitely in having a list, but there is way more to making money then just having a list.To learn more about Solo Ads and what you can do to become a vendor yourself.

      Thanks for stopping by and asking about Solos. I can help you learn what I’ve learned with the exact 24 videos of my own training I took from a top solo ads vender who earned $10k per month. This information training cost me $4000 dollars! But I practically give it away to help others.

      I was able to retire recently but I do help others. Solos are a much faster way of earning big money monthly. It does take a small investment so you can build your list, but along the way, you can start showing profits even while growing.

      It’s a numbers game and you can see the numbers which show money in and money out. Easy to process this information as you can see profits and see how much you will want to reinvest in keeping your lists fresh. Simple stuff really. Email me at itsmerickb@gmail.com and I will be happy to show you how I’ve helped my students.

    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.

    • Rick

      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.

  2. Derek

    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!

    • Rick

      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.

    • Rick

      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

    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.

    • Rick

      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.
