I couldn’t call this a complete solo ad advertising training without briefly touching upon the idea of done for you funnels.
And if you’re not sure what I mean when I say a done for you funnel, it’s basically an affiliate marketing funnel that allows you to build your own list, using someone else’s system that they have designed, and they will sell it to you.
There are half a dozen done for you list building funnels I can think of readily, and they are all vastly different in cost, and features.
In most cases you don’t need anything to make them work. You simply plug in your autoresponder code, and then the funnel will promote affiliate offers on your behalf, and all you have to do is drive traffic.
This is attractive for you if you hate the idea of setting up WordPress and configuring your own squeeze pages, downloaded pages and thank you pages.
I recall a few years back marketers were charging many thousands of dollars, in fact you can go on the WarriorForum and find done for you funnels for up to $5,000 if I
remember correctly, I’m sure you could find funnels for even more expensive to this day.
I mean over the last few years there are so many done for you funnels these days, that it’s never been easier to just get a funnel up and running in 5 minutes.
So that’s the good news, that there are solo ad funnels that exist today that only cost $1 to get started, and some of them are actually free.
So, even if you totally despise the notion of having to build a thank you page, and a squeeze page, and a download page, and videos and everything else of this nature, it’s still possible to promote 100% done for you funnels that are relatively dirt cheap for you to get started.
Some of these third-party funnels are very deep, and allow you to earn recurring and high ticket commissions.
In fact, I’m going to add some of my favorite done for you solo ad funnels to the resources sheet that is located in section number 8. I’m not going to spend much time talking specifically about the features of the done for you funnels that are out there, because I feel like they are always changing, and there are always new affiliate funnels, and even network marketing funnels that are done for you and there are always new editions, and new versions, so I’m afraid that any specific ideas I talk about will very quickly be out of date.
That being said, I can easily and happily add some of my favorites to the resources section in section number 8, and I can keep that updated and more fresh for you easier that way.
So the main advantage to having a done for you funnel is that there’s absolutely zero tech skills or setup required. I also mentioned how a few of the done for you funnels I am aware of include recurring commissions, and mid ticket to high ticket commissions, including commissions that are up to $800 that I am aware of, which is in my opinion definitely on the higher side, especially if you don’t have to do any of the work to build that funnel.
The biggest problem with done for you funnels of course is that other people are going to have the same exact funnel, which may or may not effect your opt-in and conversion rate.
In my opinion, having your own email marketing funnel that is entirely unique and made by you will always have higher potential, because statistically speaking, less people have had a chance to view that funnel.
And that’s what I find to be in my own personal experience, that if I create the squeeze page, and I create the sales letter, that my conversions are usually better, because nobody else is using my stuff.
So in other words, if you create your own sales funnel, it’s unlikely that it will be saturated.
The worst disadvantage I think is the risk that you’ll never learn how to build your own funnels. I’m not saying that’s sure to happen, but I believe that the ability to create your own funnels is one of the most important skills you can have as an email marketer and especially as a solo ad buyer.
But, contrarily, if you test out these third party done for you funnels, maybe you’ll learn or two, or brainstorm some cool methods to implement these third party funnels into your own massive funnel, so there are always more than one way to cook a goose, and remember that creativity is more important than just about anything. Because as you know, imagination is more important than knowledge, and remember that email marketing, list building, and funnel creation is as much an art as it is a science.
Another disadvantage, is that most done for you list building funnels of this type typically do not allow you to brand yourself, and in many cases you’ll have a stale static squeeze page that others are using.
But, I could argue either way really because another thought on this, is that it’s possible to have your own unique funnel on the front end, and then integrate other third party affiliate funnels in the back end, so you can get the best of both worlds. Just food for thought, because I honestly think that the more unique you the better you will be.
That being said, I think for some people maybe having a done for you funnel might be better.
Maybe you loathe the idea of having to setup anything, and would prefer for someone to do it for you.
If that’s the case, refer to the resources attachment in section number 8, because I’m going to list a few done for you solo ad funnels, each of them having different levels of complexity, so no matter your budget I’m confident you could tap into a done for you funnel, if you’d like.
That’s all I have to say right now done for you funnels, and I’ll see you in the post.
