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!
Because I am swapping such small numbers the incoming subscribers are also small numbers so I am getting quite a heavy drop off from my list. This means that it isn’t really growing that much.
However I am banking clicks with 5 people at the moment and by the end of this week I should be up to my 100 clicks with all of them which will mean I have 400 clicks coming my way (One partner has already sent me their 100 clicks). This should boost my numbers nicely and it will also mean I will be starting to bank clicks with brand new partners.
The great thing about the system I am using is that for every new subscriber I get I also bank 1 click with my partners immediately and then through the first 2 follow up emails I bank a further 2 clicks per subscriber if they click the links in my email (which most of them do). This is all run through my link rotator so the same subscriber never sees the same offer twice.
So with the quick update out of the way I thought I would talk a little bit about some of the tools I use.
This is my main tool for tracking at the moment. It is what I use to track all inbound and outbound clicks. I don’t even use the full features of it such as split testing, All I use is the link tracking and conversion tracking. This gives me my main important numbers of how many clicks I have sent or received and then how many of those clicks turned into opt ins or sales of my upsell.
I suggest you buy a domain specifically for your links. I own doddlink.com and that is what I use for all of my links now. I used their free installation service to get AdTrackzGold installed on my domain and from there it was very easy to set things up.
YOURLS: Your Own URL Shortener
This is just one that I wanted. It is definitely not needed but it is nice to have. This just means that my links are changed from something like this:
Into something like this:
Now both those links go to the same place but one of them is much nicer looking than the other. It is basically my own version of bit.ly and does pretty much exactly the same thing but it is only for myself to use.
You can Google YOURLS as I can’t seem to find it anywhere and seeing as it is just a little extra thing and not a requirement for a solo ad business if you REALLY want it then you can find it yourself.
Core Click Maximizer
This is the final tool I use and it is just for banking clicks really.
This is my link rotator, which basically means I can send out one link and it rotates between however many links I have setup in the admin area. Currently I have 5 click banking partners so my 1 link of doddlink.com/cmax/?g=1 will send you to any one of my 5 current click banking partners in order. So if you click it twice you will see 2 different offers and if you click it 5 times you will see 5 different offers before you go back and see offer number 1.
So I hope you have learned something from this post and you are now more prepared to setup your own solo ads business.
My suggestion is to just get started and build your opt in page and buy some traffic to get going. If you want to find some great solo ad sellers then join the best solo/swap group on facebook by opting in on this page
