What are solo ads

A solo ad campaign is run by an email list owner from whom you buy a certain amount of clicks for a certain amount of money. The solo ad vendor sends an email contain your affiliate link to his subscribers list. The copy for the email may be on the vendors side or on your side.

What to remember when buying solo ads

The most important thing to remember before you buy solo ads is to have an optin page for your affiliate offer. The primary goal of solo ads should be email collection. Straight away sales don’t happen very often with solo ads. That’s because these are the cold leads. The people who clicked on your link were not really looking for your offer. They were interested by the email title and copy and that’s why they clicked on the link. But most probably they are not ready to make a purchase at the moment when they receive such email. That’s the role of email autoresponder sequence. And that’s why you need your optin page – to collect emails!
