What Is A Solo Ad? An Introduction
A solo ad is when you pay for an ad to be sent to someone else’s email list and in return they send you visitors to a page of your choice so you can build your own email list.
Eg, You contact a solo ad vendor and buy a set number of clicks,(traffic) from that person and they email their list and send traffic to a designated page you have given.
Somebody else sends you traffic from their email list to your offer. This offer needs to be a free offer as the majority of solo ad vendors will only send their traffic to a free offer. Remember, the idea of buying a solo ad isn’t necessarily to sell but to build your email list.
The concept of a solo ad is very simple. You pay someone to deliver traffic to your squeeze page. For such a simple concept though, many people are unaware of how to go about the buying of a solo ad correctly and can be scammed and lose money.

Can be extremely profitable

Questions to ask a Solo ad vendor
It’s not always about what they say but how they react to your questions.
Asking these specific question of solo ad vendors will help to ensure you buy from a reputable seller.
What type of offers/information does your list like to see? (Don’t tell them what offer you have)
Do you have a buyer list?
What countries countries is your traffic from. Tier 1,etc. Tier 1 is traffic from the English speaking countries.
What is the product/squeeze you use so that you generate buyers? Some sellers may be cagey about this. If they aren’t willing to give you their squeeze page they may not be reputable seller so walk away.
How much do you charge per click? Just because a vendor charges more than $1 per click doesn’t always mean they have better quality traffic than someone charging $0.50 per click.
How long would it take you to send out 100/200 etc clicks? The quicker the solo ad can be sent the better as it means the results will come in quicker.
Other things to look out for when contacting a solo ad vendor:
If they don’t get back to you for days after the initial contact. If they can’t get back to you quickly (within 24 hours) they may not be committed to providing a good service.
If their sales page is a mess. It should be clean and tidy, in date, font is clear and not cluttered. If a vendor can’t be bothered to update the sales page for their solo ad service they may not have their buyers interests at heart.
