The Truth About Solo Ads


Okay for this article I’m going to be completely honest and tell you the truth about solo ads. This post is not going to be long at all. I’m going to say what I want to say and leave it at that. This article is based upon my personal experience and may be much different from yours and that’s okay. It may seem like i’m ranting a little but I want to be honest and hopefully save you some time and money.

What are solo ads?

Solo ads, in a nutshell, are basically Money making or internet marketing opportunity ads that a seller posts online. The visitor sees the ad, has an interest, and fills out a form wanting to know how to make money online. The seller collects their email and name and sells it to the purchaser (you and me)for as low as 5o cents to as much as 1.50 per click.The seller has lots of names and email addresses of people who want info on a money making opportunity. As soon as you make your purchase of clicks that you want, your opportunity will be shown to the people who requested more information based on the amount of clicks you bought. Your program will be shown via email. If the visitor, otherwise known as the prospect, likes your opportunity, they will invest in the business and you will have a sale.

Pros and Cons

Obviously there are pros and cons with solo ads just like anything else right? First I’ll start with the pros. Solo ads are probably the fastest way to build your list. The bigger your list, the greater the chance you stand to make a lot of money. Some people say the money is in the list. I think the money is in the value that you offer to your list. With a single purchase, you can have hundreds of leads going through your funnel. The key word here is leverage. If you don’t have much money to invest, you can buy a solo ad for as low as 4o, 50 bucks.

The Cons of solo ads are you can lose a lot of money by buying solos that are crap. Some solo ad sellers are scamming purchasers out of their money by selling old leads or clicks. Sometimes these clicks are bots. The thing that I don’t like is if you get clicks that do not convert to sales, there is really no remedy. You have to take a loss. The thing with solo ads is that you never know what kind of traffic your getting or if they are really targeted as the sellers claim they are. You may get one sale out of one hundred clicks but it is what it is. It’s the risk you take.

In conclusion, This is the truth about solo ads in my opinion. Again, your experience may be different. I want to share a story with you in regards to solo ads. I’ve purchased quite a few solo ads from different vendors. I want to share the one big loss that really opened my eyes and revealed to me the truth about solo ads. I recently purchased 500 clicks from a guy that calls himself the king of solo ads. He’s known as the go to guy for solo ads.

Anyway, it was my first run with him so I decided to take the leap of faith and put up 700 bucks for 500 clicks. While I did get about a 4o-50% opt in, I only got one upfront sale! Now “what a minute” I thought to myself. This guy who is supposed to be the solo ad guru produced average results for me. I was expecting at least 4-5 upfront sales but it didn’t happen that way. I

t was shocking because he’s considered “the guy”. Boy did I learn my lesson. I’ve purchased lower amount of clicks and got better results than this guy’s deal. In my humble opinion, you can get sales from solo ads, however, they are low performing and not the best source of quality traffic.

Fortunately for me I’ve discovered a trusted traffic source that I will use from now on. Not only did I get great results, I got outstanding customer service! Their traffic isn’t solo ads, google ads or Facebook ads. Check it out here.

It works better than those sources. Oh by the way, FB is not a fan of money making opportunities and will implement changes next year that will definitely affect internet marketers unless they are savvy and crafty enough to market their offers.

Currently, their offering a black Friday special until Monday night where you can take advantage of their quality traffic packages at discounted rates. Click here to check it out.

Four Reasons Why Prospects Say No To Network Marketing

no images 2

There are reasons why prospects say no to network marketing. For many years, a stigma has been placed on MLM. People have associated network marketing to a four letter word. Individuals who joined the profession in the past and for some reason or another, got burned. So now, when you prospect them, they ask if this is network marketing. As soon as you say yes, they hang up on you.

You and I know that MLM is a legitimate business. We’ve done our due diligence and understand the business model. So what’s the problem? Let’s talk about the reasons why prospects say no.

Reason #1. I got burned.

From time to time, you will come across former network marketers who say I was in one of those and got burned. My opinion is there is no such thing as I got burned. It’s the distributor’s responsibility to learn, then implement. If someone got burned, they burned themselves. Network marketing is a business of action. No action, no results. It’s just that simple.

Reason #2. You must invest capital in your business.

Starting a home business requires an investment on your part. I believe that there is no such thing as something for nothing. If you start a business for nothing, it’s probably worth just that. If you don’t have any skin in the game, how serious are you taking your business? In addition, to the initial investment, you will need to make a monthly commitment towards products and services.

Reason #3. You have to sell something.

What real business do you know of that doesn’t require sales? A brick and mortar business must make sales in order to make a profit. An internet business works the same way. As an entrepreneur, you are in the business of sales. It’s the only way you are going to make a profit. In order to get a job, you must sell yourself to the employer. The interviewer must feel that you are the right person for the position. If you are married or in some kind of intimate relationship, you had to sell yourself to your mate or you would still be a virgin(there’s nothing wrong with that). Read and watch material on prospecting to sharpen you sales skills. Sales is your number one business skill.

Reason #4. I don’t like people and you need people to


Can you name one function of a civilized world that doesn’t require people in some way? People were created to multiply the earth and bring glory to God. We were also created to help one another. So what’s this stuff about I don’t like people and you need people to join? You need people for mostly everything! Some of the best life experiences I’ve had, came from connecting with people. There is power in relationships.

In conclusion, based on my experience, these are my reasons why prospects say no to network marketing. Many prospects think they have to do network marketing strictly the old fashioned way. At the beginning, many are nervous and tend to overwhelm themselves with too much information. Furthermore, they don’t believe they can even do this business. That is why personal development is so crucial to achieving lasting success. New distributors need help as we all do. If we continue to educate our prospects, they will stop saying no and start saying yes to network marketing.



What do you do when the rent is coming, bills are piling up, and your wedding anniversary (or some other big event is right around the corner?)…

Well I was in that same situation and the smartest thing I did was watch a video where 4 of the top earners in the home business industry revealed exactly what THEY would do in that same situation!…

It’s all on video where each marketer is interviewed and asked all the tough questions that any newbie marketer would ask!

Click here for video.

Best of all… the strategies that they reveal are the stripped down versions to only the MOST EFFECTIVE parts of what they actually all did in their OWN desperate situations!!

They’re all now earning at least 6-figures each…and all got there in a very short period of time!!

You can’t find this anywhere else… and you’ll be amazed at how easy and doable these strategies are for ANYBODY to pull off!!


Much success,

Calvin Moss
