Solo Ads Or Funnel Clicks- Which One Is Better?
Before you go out and purchase solo ads, I need to warn you that there are a lot of terrible solo ad sellers out there. Some sellers send either bot clicks or they send extremely low tier 1 traffic.
Some sellers even try to get away with sending traffic directly from terrible traffic sources like adf.ly. You want to find sellers that will send a minimum of 70% tier 1traffic strictly from their own email list.
The good news is there are a lot of great and honest sellers out there who will send you awesome traffic and they are actually really easy to find.
Where To Find Solo Ad Sellers
The Facebook groups! Remember that huge list of Facebook groups I gave you earlier? Well, these groups are full of sellers who promote their services. All you need to do is view a couple of the groups, find some sellers and then send them a message.
What To Look For
Actually, before you send them a message you should go look to see if they have any testimonials. Luckily there is a Facebook group that is dedicated to Solo Ad Testimonials, you can join that group by heading to https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoloAdsTestimonials/ and searching for that persons name.
Searching for the name is really easy, just go to the group and click on the little search button in the upper right hand corner that looks like this:
If the seller has a couple good testimonials, you should send them a message and ask them specific questions. We will go over which questions to ask them below.
The Important Questions To Ask Before You Purchase
Just send them a message letting them know you are interested in purchasing one of their solo ad packages but you have a few questions to ask them first. If the seller is legit, they won’t mind you asking them questions at all. So here are the questions you should ask:
1: How Much Do You Charge Per Click? Obviously you don’t want to overpay for a solo ad. Personally, I never pay more than 45 cents per click and I consider that to be very expensive. I would say on average I pay around 35-38 cents per click.
2: Do You Have A First Time Buyers Discount? A lot of sellers will offer a first time buyers discount just to let the person know how awesome their traffic is and hope they come back for more. If the seller offers a first time buyers discount, that’s great! If not, at least you asked :).
3: Are You A Click Broker? For some reason, “click brokering” has started to become more and more popular. Click brokering is when people with no list or a very small list will go out claiming they have traffic for sale, sell to you at a higher price and then purchase at a lower price. The problem with click brokering is that in order for them to make a profit, they have to find sellers that sell for super cheap, and usually those sellers send terrible quality traffic. So make sure you ask them if they own the list or if they are brokering. If they are brokering you might want to stay away from them.
4: Do You Guarantee A Certain Tier 1 Percentage? This is extremely important to ask. You want to make sure they send you at least 70% tier 1 traffic, so if they guarantee you that they will send a minimum of 70% tier 1 of the original order size and they don’t, then you have the right to ask for a refund or ask for more tier 1 clicks.
Notice I said of the original size. A lot of sellers will over-deliver by about 10%, so if you ordered 100 clicks, they might deliver 110 clicks. If you do the math on that, 70% of 110 is 77 clicks. However, they only need to send you 70 tier 1 clicks because your original order size was 100, not 110. So always do the math based on your order size, don’t include the over-delivery.
5: How Long Does It Take To Deliver The Clicks? Typically, you want the clicks delivered within 72 hours. If the seller can’t deliver the clicks Once you get the hang of purchasing solo ads, you can work your way into purchasing funnel clicks. To be honest, I am slowly starting to make the transition over to purchasing just funnel clicks instead of solo ads because funnel clicks are actually converting better for me and they are cheaper! Some of you might not know what funnel clicks are. I will explain below.
What Are Funnel Clicks
Funnel clicks are clicks that come from sources other than email broadcast messages (well, they can but I will explain that later). The most common place people deliver funnel clicks from is their thank you page or their opt-in redirect page.
Remember how you set up a thank you page or opt-in redirect page for your click banking partners? Well, this is basically the same thing, except instead of people sending clicks to click banking partners, they are selling those clicks to people like you.
Funnel clicks can also come from the PS section in emails or from links in a persons follow up sequence.
Why I Like Funnel Clicks Better Than Solo Ads
There are a couple reasons I am starting to like funnel clicks better than solo ads. However, the main reasons are because they seem to convert better and they are usually cheaper so you can get more subscribers for less money…who doesn’t want that! 😉
Know The Traffic Source Before You Purchase
It is VITAL that you ask funnel click sellers the same exact questions you asked solo ad sellers, except you also want to ask one more questions and the is “What is the source of your traffic”. There are a few sellers who include exit pop traffic in their funnel click packages, and if that’s the case you want to make sure you avoid that seller.
Exit traffic converts terribly and it’s not worth spending money on. Like I said you want to make sure the clicks either come from the thank you page, opt-in redirect page, PS clicks, or follow up sequence clicks.
Where To Find Funnel Click Sellers
You can find funnel click sellers in the same groups you found solo ad sellers and click banking partners, but there is also another group you should join that is specifically for funnel clicks. That group is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/funnelclicks/
I am on that group almost every day purchasing some high quality traffic for a great price! Also, it might take a little longer for you to receive all the clicks you ordered, but that’s ok. Just make sure they send you all the clicks within 10 day or less (unless you ordered a HUGE package of clicks)
If you have been purchasing solo ads, save yourself some money and give funnel clicks a try. Right when I did that my conversions went up about 10% on average which is a HUGE increase when it comes to list building.
within 72 hours of the agreed send date, then they shouldn’t have sold you that many clicks.
As long as the seller has some good testimonials in the Facebook group and you are satisfied with their answer to those questions, you will be able to purchase from them and be confident that they will deliver high quality clicks.
Remember to track the clicks using My Click Boss or another quality tracker. You want to know exactly how many opt-ins you receive from each seller and how many tier 1 clicks they actually sent you.
