How I Got My First 100 SubscribersBy Shatish Rao
Just by using this one strategy alone, I managed to get almost a 100 subscribersfrom scratch without having to do much work at all.Do you know what a solo ad is? You might have heard of it.A solo ad is when you make an upfront payment to a marketer, to promote youroffer to his list.For example, youre giving away a free report on traffic generation in your squeezepage.You will then contact other marketers who are in the same niche as you. In thiscase, the “make money online” niche, and ask if they offer solo ads.Solo ads are sold to you in a number of clicks they are able to sent to your page. Itstarts from 100 clicks,250 clicks all the way up to a 1000 clicks.They can only guarantee the number of clicks but not the number of visitors whowill opt-in to your page.This where you have to do your part. Test your squeeze page conversions andknow your numbers.Some marketers may offer more than a 1000 clicks, it depends on how manyclicks they can deliver.
WarningSolo ads cost money, dont order a large amount clicks if youre not sure whatyoure doing.Start small, maybe 100 clicks to test your squeeze page. If its done correctly, youmight break even or profit from it. It depends on your conversion. Always do yourhomework first.How to get a solo adStep 1 - Have a high converting squeeze page in your niche.Step 2 - Give away something for free on your squeeze page: • free report • mp3 audio • video courseStep 3 - Create your email swipe • Write an email in third person,to promote your offer, give a short description about your free give away list down the benefits in bullet points.Step 4 – Contact the marketer and get your solo adAlways be cautious when you choose to work with someone youre not familiarwith.Ask them the following questions, before you place an order: • Whats the size of your list? • What is your niche? • What is the next available date for a solo?
