OK, so you have a small list, and you want to grow it as rapidly as possible.
You have tried sending pay per click traffic to your splash page, and even though you have mastered the art of getting your cost per click down, you still feel like there could be a better way.
Well, you'd be right.
The way is by solo ads.
I'm not going to go into what a solo ad is here, as there is already so much information on them out there.
This technique is nothing new, but as sure as death and taxes, solo ads work.
Why are they so effective? Well, basically the person sending them has already developed a relationship with their readers.
They can simply write something as corny as 'hey, check out this offer' and people will click the link.
The readers will respond better as they are predisposed to receiving great offers from being on the list already.
If you type into Google the term 'solo ads,' then you will most certainly get a myriad of results.
Some relevant, and some results not so much.
Before even contemplating using a solo ad, the first step is to know historically what your landing page converts at.
It is pointless paying for traffic to be sent if your page only converts at say 5%.
Naturally the higher the conversion rate, the better.
You will also want to make sure that you have a sales funnel already to go.
That way you will be able to try recoup some of your expenditure on the solo ad.
Some solo ads are actually profitable if you have a high converting offer available for them One technique I use here (disclaimer: you will have to test this yourself, this works for me, I don't know if it works for others), is to have my thank you page be an affiliate link.
That way, if someone enters their details, I will have the opportunity to be able to make a commission immediately.
Next is you also want to ensure that your email sequence works.
Hopefully you would have been able to test this on your other subscribers to see how they interact with the offers.
If you need help with this, then there are quality writers on the warrior forum that will be able to assist.
Finally, once your list grows enough, you can also create a daily income by selling your own solo's.
Thankfully these days there are various ad exchanges that will allow you to buy and sell solo's with other members.
These are usually a great place to start when you begin selling your own ads.
Building your list with this method is a great way to grow your list rapidly if you have a budget.
