When it comes to using a reputable solo ad marketplace, there is one solo ad marketplace that I recommend above all others.
In my opinion buying solo ads is safer than buying solo ads from cheap eamil ad vendors, because they provide all of the third party tracking for you.
Of the three solo ad marketplaces shown here, I prefer Udimi.com, because they have the toughest tracking in the market.
And what that means, is that their built-in click tracking is so tough, that many solo ad vendors have actually complained because many of their clicks aren’t being tracked.
This is bad for the vendor, but it’s very good for you, the buyer, because since Udimi.com has some of the toughest tracking around, you’re almost guaranteed to get the traffic that you purchased.
Because say for example your solo ad vendor sends you 100 legitimate clicks, the Udimi.com tracker is so strict that it might only count 85 of those clicks, resulting in the solo ad vendor owing you more clicks.
The tracking system on Udimi.com isn’t designed to rip off the vendor, it’s just to protect YOU and it’s to ensure that you get valid clicks for your hard earned marketing budget.
I wanted to wrap up this post regarding why I love Udimi.com more than other
solo ad marketplaces.
Udimi.com allows you to read all of the reviews that a solo ad vendor gets, so everything is on public record, and since you can only review a vendor when you buy traffic, there’s a less chance for fraudulent reviews.
As you know fraudulent reviews are everywhere now. They’re on Amazon, they’re on Udemy, they’re on every marketplace on the planet, and it’s a problem.
That’s why I think it’s particularly dangerous to buy solo ads from someone you might find in a Facebook group, because there’s little to know accountability, it’s too easy for someone to develop fake reviews, and then steal your money.
That’s another reason why I prefer to deal with solo ad marketplaces, because there’s transparency and accountability.
On Udimi.com you’re also able to view the tier 1% of your solo ad vendor, how fast they deliver clicks, how fast they respond to orders, and the number of proxies, plus you can learn a ton more just by reading the reviews of the customers.
And the one thing that’s most important, and I spent years of my life figuring this out, but the most important stat is how many of their end users report getting sales from their traffic.
I found out a long time ago that a lot of solo ad vendors send low quality junk traffic. After tracking my stats many times, I learned that it comes down to sales.
If a list produces sales, you know it’s a high quality list, period.
I’d rather have a list with a low tier 1% that generates a lot of sales, than a list with a high tier-1% where the end users don’t click my links, and they don’t buy my stuff.
So make sure to check into your solo ad vendor, see how many people are reporting that they got sales from their traffic.
Udimi.com also allows you to check who the top 5 solo ad vendors are every week, and how many clicks they sold.
This is another element of transparency that can benefit you, because you’ll find that just because somebody had a great list a few years ago, that doesn’t mean that they can deliver a lot of traffic today.
That’s why this one section of Udimi.com alone is worth more than any solo ad Rolodex, because solo ad Rolodex books are old, they are old static data, whereas, this up to date buyer information is available to you on Udimi.com for free.
Buying your first solo ad can be nerve-wrecking.
That’s why I went to such detail and length to cut out the learner’s curve for you as much as possible.
So when you’re ready to buy your first solo ad, you’ll already know exactly what to do.
You’ll know for a fact that your solo ad funnel works, because of the way you’ve constructed it and tested it.
You’ll know for a fact that your solo ad swipe is on point, because it’s short, to the point, and promotes your free give away effectively.
You’ll know your solo ad vendor is reputable, because you’re buying from a marketplace with a money back guarantee, and one with the strictest tracking protocols on the planet.
So you can finally have the confidence that comes with having consistent and reliable traffic, at the push of a button.
So at the end of the day, I would advise you not to reinvent the wheel.
Talk to your solo ad vendor, introduce yourself, put forth more rapport and relationship building than 95% of other solo ad buyers.
I can tell you that if your solo ad vendor likes you, they’re more likely to offer you discounts, and send you bonus traffic.
So not only are you gaining powerful allies in the email marketing world, but in my opinion your marketing budget gets a big boost by being well liked.
So, thank your solo ad vendor before they even send traffic. Seriously. Thank them, and say how much you appreciate their service. Tell them that you hope to have a long lasting relationship, and tell them that if there’s anything at all that they require, that you are at their beckon.
Another thing I advise you to do, is leave stellar reviews, and tell your solo ad vendor that you will leave a stellar review.
Solo ad vendors love getting awesome reviews, and if you inform them that you’re going to leave a stellar review, they’ll remember you next time, and in my opinion they’ll be more likely to give you a better on traffic, this is simply human nature, and remember that the simple things in life work the best.
A good attitude can work wonders in this landscape, because often times people treat their solo ad vendors like crap.
These days people are often uptight, and a good attitude and a smile has often done me wonders. I hope that it can do the same for you.
Treat them right, and they’ll return the favor.
Before I wrap this post up, I would like to speak briefly about buying solo ads out in the wild, meaning at any location that is NOT in a marketplace with built-in tracking.
I would advise not buying solo ads from some stranger you find on the Internet unless you seriously do your homework.
Because there are guaranteed marketplaces you can visit right now to get tons of traffic.
Udimi.com will provide all the traffic you’ll ever need.
And you might surmise based upon this presentation that I only recommend that you use Udimi.com, and while they are my favorite…
Udimi.com used to be safe -swaps.com, and they’ve been around since before 2011, so they’ve had such a long time to develop a marketplace, a roster of solo ad vendors, and the tracking required to make it one of the safest marketplaces for solo ad buyers on the planet right now.
In the following post, I’m going to briefly talk about how to find solo ads from unique and untapped sources, which will be totally different from buying from a marketplace, and I’ll see you in the next post.
