Well it has been a pretty exciting week in the world of solo ads for me!
I have sold some solos and had a $300 day and 2 $100 days since starting to sell them!
This is now pretty sustainable as I am also buying solo ads with the money I am making so I will be able to sell more and more solo ads!

That’s right, I have sold my first solo ad!
In fact I sold 4!
I put a post in the Solo Swap Syndicate Facebook Group saying I was ready to sell my first solo and before I could click my fingers I had sold 4 of them!!
You know what this means now though don’t you!
I can now start buying solo ads as well which will keep my numbers increasing!

Well this week has certainly been awesome for this side of my business!
Tuesday I hit my first 100 new subscriber day and that was repeated on Wednesday just 2 short of 200 and then Thursday hit and I was at over 250 new subscribers in a day!
At the time of posting this I am sat at just 28 for the day but I expect that to grow as I have some swaps coming in later in the day.
So I guess you want to know how I hit these numbers without spending any money!

Well its another week inside this fabulous world of solo ads and things are really starting to pick up now!
My clicks have grown from 20 clicks per message up to 30 clicks per message and next week I can see it growing way beyond that!
I know it is still small fry really but as you know I am doing this with zero investment (apart from the domain, hosting, autoresponder and link tracking tools) I am not buying any traffic so things are taking longer than some people.

This week has been a bit of a slow one for me with regards to solo ads. I didn’t manage to get any swaps booked in for the first 2 days as I was away for the Easter holiday. Now I know I should have booked them all in advance but I also had work from other clients to get done. But this just sounds like a lot of excuses!

This week I completely forgot about posting here. Mainly because I organised all of my solo ads at the beginning of the week and then just forgot about them! Obviously I checked my stats to make sure I was delivering what I was promising and vise versa. As well as checking my conversions (Over 60% still!!)
However because I am still wanting to build this business for as little money as possible I am really struggling to increase my click numbers… I thought I would be a great testimonial to show people that you can build a solo ad business without investing any money but at the moment it is proving very tricky!

I’m serious! Why are you focusing on SEO?
I never have and probably never will for my own sites. It is different if I am working for an offline client ads they need to be ranking for certain keywords but my business doesn’t rely on the whims of Google’s algorithm changes and neither should yours.
If you want a successful online business then you will need to start paying for traffic. Whether that is through giving a commission for sales you make from JV partners traffic or whether you are buying solo ads or CPC traffic. (As I write the word “traffic,” Gary Newman ‘Cars” starts playing )

I have just started making use of scheduled posts within WordPress. I know I am so behind the times!
So even though you are reading this now I actually wrote it a few days ago!
This is something I will be doing more and more so I can block out some time each week to write a couple of blog posts and then schedule them to be published at a later date!

So last week I announced that I was starting a solo ad business. However although it is now a week since I announced that I have actually been building this for a few weeks now. Probably about 3 weeks, maybe more.
In that time I have started with a fresh empty list on Aweber with a free offer of an interview I did with Alex Jeffreys a while ago. The interview was done as a bonus for a product that never made it to market so I thought I might as well get some use out of it!

So todays post follows on from yesterday really but if it was all together it would have just been too long for my blog as I like to keep posts short and to the point. So just dive right in and let me know your thoughts at the end by leaving a comment. Once again this is my opinion only and I cannot be held responsible for any actions you take regarding your finances after reading this post.
Today I am going to talk about how I manage my income on a monthly basis. This isn’t going into the details of what I spend where but how I split my income into different bank accounts for different uses.
