Getting disappointed in the solos I have purchased here lately..When I buy ahead for a selected date...am I wrong to expect that it at least starts on that day?..And I am seeing that 100 and 150 clicks are taking 4-5 days to deliver. Not everyone does this...but 2 out of 3 are. Is this the new normal?

Thanks Chris am new here and still trying to see how everything works. At the last minute the seller refunded my money for no reason but I found some one who is already doing it. But the other seller did waste my time. Am on fiverr and after 4 year am making 5k+ a month

Clicks should still start on the day purchased.

Solo ads are the best, most lucrative source of traffic today. When you buy a solo from me you get a high level of these two met

yes especially when ordered way ahead of time...if there is problem...seller should at least contact us. My solo from Friday 150 clicks...rec 7 so far..my solo from Saturday..125 clicks...rec 8 so far. This is not normal...I have been with safe swaps and udimi for years and this is not normal. I keep list of the good ones and the bad ones. That is all I can do.

I had two different solos set for today. This has not happened before. But another link was attached to both solos, I tried two different sellers and they are two different platforms. I tested before posting and links worked. I check after the first accepted and it was fine. After the second seller accepted. I check the link and it would not go through. I wrote her immediately and she has been on several times and has ignored my messages. Now I check the other solo and I am getting the same block.. They were due to run today. and there is nothing 0 on both solos. So Communication is not possible when ignored. Is it not the policy if they are not delivered on the day you are not charged??

I agree 100%. On a very rare occasion I may have to start a solo late, and if that happens I would always contact the buyer and let them know and give them the option to get a refund if they wish.

The reason why I think it's important to start the solo on the date of purchase is because some buyers are relying on those clicks for affiliate contests, etc. Sometimes the buyer also has a time sensitive offer. It's definitely not cool to start the solo a day late.

Try it and see what your results are like. I personally believe it is holding back good clicks.

I was recently delivered 221 clicks. The seller wrote the swipe and I got 15 opt-ins. Is that good, bad or ugly? I'm a newbe testing solos for a major project.

That's around a 6.8% conversion rate, which is very poor. I'd say it's just about impossible to achieve a positive ROI with stats like that. However, I can't say it's the sellers fault without taking a look at your landing page. Traditionally, a good squeeze page converts at 30%-40%. That means you should have gotten somewhere in the range of 66-88 new subscribers from that solo.

If you'd like, I'd be happy to take a look at your squeeze page and then tell you how to optimize it so you can get 35%-40% conversion rates with it. Send me a PM. I'd be glad to help.

I need folks to run top tier clicks for me, but can't wait three days. Its crazy. Seems longer than 90 hours especially with my offers.

Hmmm. I am just starting out selling solo ads and I read all your comments. I think that maybe I should look elsewhere to earn a living. :-( I certainly don't have the money to set up my own MTA.

I would definitely not recommend anyone to start selling solos unless they know exactly what they are doing. You can no longer use mainstream ARs like Aweber & GetResponse to deliver clicks, and that makes it a little more involved than it used to be.

What blows my mind is that there are still "coaches" out there who are instructing newbies to set up a click selling business using those autoresponder platforms. You might get away with it for a few weeks or even a few months, but eventually they WILL shut you down.

That leaves you with a couple of options. There are other ARs companies that will allow it, but they typically have very poor delivery rates. You can go with a self-hosted AR software such as ArpReach, or you can do what Heather is doing, which requires a large initial investment and maintenance fees and lots of technical knowledge. I admit I have no idea how Heather is doing it and no desire to learn how!

For me selling solos is just one of several income streams that I have that when you add them all together results in a pretty good income. However, I would never want to take on solo selling as my one and only way to pull in income. It's simply too unpredictable.

I'm not trying to discourage you, just trying to make you aware that there is a lot to it and it's not near as easy as some of these "coaches" and "gurus" would have you believe. That's not to say you can't do it. If you want it bad enough and you put your mind to it I'm sure you can achieve your goal.

Thanks Christopher, I think I agree with you. I am not in a financial position to take any risks. I do make a few bucks here and there but it's early days for me. I will look into Fiverr and see what I can do there. Regards, Bob.
