Click Trackers for Solo Ad Buyers: ClickMagick vs ClickMeter

Click Trackers Review: ClickMagick vs ClickMeter

If you buy solo ads from marketplaces like Udimi, a click tracker isn’t a must. The software of that platform tracks the clicks and solves the potential dispute between the buyer and the seller.

However, if you don’t buy your ad from solo ad marketplaces, you need a reliable and popular click tracker. Otherwise you’re a blind advertiser. Because you cannot properly assess the result.

Best Ezine to Buy Solo Ads

What is the Best Ezine to Advertise with? #SoloAds

One of the questions many solo ads buyers ask is: “What is the best ezine to advertise with?

Best Ezine to Buy Solo Ads

If you check the responses, you’ll see that the question usually doesn’t get an appropriate answer. It’s not surprising and you’ll see why…

Let’s pretend that you asked that question…

Someone responds and claims that the best ezine to advertise with is “Blah Blah Newsletter“. Then you visit the website of that ezine and see that it’s a weight loss ezine.

What if you planned to promote an internet marketing ebook?

It’s obvious that “Blah Blah Newsletter” is not the best ezine, but an inappropriate ezine to advertise with.

Don't Buy Solo Ads in Single Opt-in Ezines

Every advertiser knows that solo ads advertising is a numbers game. The formula is simple:

the more subscribers = the higher the price for a solo ad (and the higher the expectations)

It makes sense, doesn’t it?

However, let me tell you about a variable that isn’t included in the simple formula mentioned above and isn’t taken into consideration by most of the ezine advertisers:

the type of opt-in process for the ezine (double or single opt-in). (more…)

That’s why even the junior marketers know that testimonials help their business. Testimonials are valuable marketing assets for all solo ads sellers.

But what about the buyers? Are testimonials of any help? Or are they only psychological triggers that we should learn to disregard?

Let’s stop applying blindly a method that works in certain situations. Let’s analyze the solo ads case and see what we get… (more…)

If size mattered, the elephant would be the king of the jungle.

Are Small Ezines Worthless for Solo Ads Advertising?

If size mattered, the elephant would be the king of the jungle

Solo ads advertising is a complex process and it’s influenced by many factors. If you don’t take into consideration the effects of as many variables as possible, then some of your conclusions may be wrong.

Recently I had a conversation with the owner of a directory of ezines…

I was puzzled when I found out what his newest plan is: to remove the small ezines from his directory. Why to do that? Because according to him small ezines are worthless for ezine advertisers.

Hmm … Is it right or it’s just another misconception about ezine advertising? Let’s see … (more…)

Assessing a Solo Ad Offer – Case Study

A few hours ago, my Facebook friend Neil Ashworth has pointed to me some solo ads questions posted by Glenn B. on the wall of the group Internet Marketing Super Friends.

Seth Godin: If you wait until there is another case study in your industry, you will be too late.

I’m not a member of that group and anyway by reading the questions I quickly understood that the length of a proper answer is more appropriate for a blog post than for a Facebook reply.

So I decided to write this article. In this way, even if in the meantime Glenn gets the answers from the members of that Facebook group, more people will be able to benefit from such a public case study. (more…)

Different Types of Solo Ads, Different Approaches

Recently, while being on GooglePlus, I was discussing with a nice lady different things about solo ads. She suddenly asked me for the link to the page where I sell solo ads. Guess what?

Choice vs Chance

I somehow suggested not buying solo ads from me. I bet she was quite confused and you’re too… What kind of seller suggests not buying his stuff?

Was she a trouble maker who doesn’t even know what a solo ad is and was I trying to avoid further troubles? No way, she is an internet marketer and more than 6 months ago she started selling solo ads with guaranteed clicks. I can assume that she has some experience in that solo ads sub-niche, right? Then… my attitude is quite a mystery, isn’t it? (more…)
