    You promoting Lewis? Why not document the journey here?

    Anyway, good luck. I also bought solo ads for this Xmas. A total of 60000 subscribers. But yes, there is risk involved! Who knows if the seller is sending you fake traffic from Minuteworkers or something! In your journey, I would love to know what kind of proof you ask to the sellers.

    The .com was not available :)


    I can document the journey here, but it would be just a copy of my blog. If i can do it this way, i just ask moderators to tell, me...
    About risk, you´re right, but a simple way to break that risk is to be in some facebook or skype groups and buy solos from trusted sellers. Also safe-swaps has a feedback system to avoid the crap solo providers.

    Blog updated, here is the post:

    [h=2]Quick Update on my journey[/h]
    5 days have passed since the last post and decided to do a quick update on my journey. In the first webinar, Lewis described succinctly thel business around solo ads and at the same time unveiled some details that made me be sure that the cost per subscriber that I myself was paying could be greatly reduced. Doing the math very quickly, with a conversion of 35%, and pay an average of about 0.35 cents per click, every time you bought a solo ads, I'd be paying $ 1 pr each subscriber, maybe a little less due to overdelivering of about 10% or 15% that solo ads providers always do and also due to some upsells i have made. This way, and how I intend to maximize all the money they have to invest part of this business, I decided to stop buying solo ads and wait for the next steps in the coaching program.
    Yesterday, Lewis added coaching studentes to various groups on skype. In these groups are discussed matters related to the business of solo ads and we can find partners and people buying and selling solo ads.
    Exacly when i was writing this post, i have seen that webinar 2 will go live this evening so i probably will be back tomorrow or the day after to a new update!

    Good luck and I hope you will keep us updated along the way. Too many of these threads die out after a week or so...

    PM sent! I am looking for partners! All are welcome!

    I will not let this die :)

    Blog updated, Here is part of the post:

    The Solo Ads Business – Update
    In the first posts here on the blog, I described solo ads business model and documented my first steps. Since the last post, I attended another of Lewis Turner webinar where he described in more detail some aspects of the business. I also missed another webinar where Lewis described technical aspects of funnel creation but it seems that Lewis will repeat this since live webinar went wrong due to technical problems.
    Again, Lewis proposed some homework. We should find click banking partners to deal and we should also create an email adress and submit that email to other people´s funnels. The ideia is to have an email box with a lot of swipe texts to use in the future. Lewis also suggested that we should start with the creation of squeeze pages. I have buyed Optimizepress, i have instaled in my domain and at this moment i am creating some variations of squeeze pages while i wait for next webinar. Other procedures that i will make the next few days will be sign up with ppl programs wich i will talk about latter.

    New blog update:
    Funnel Done!
    In the last update I wrote here, I was working on squeeze page. Optimizepress is a wordpress theme which we can easily create squeeze pages quite attractive in a few minutes. It is also very easy to add the code of aweber and create a thank you / download page. Optimizepress also offers the possibility of creating an exit page, which increases conversions between 5 and 10%. Altogether, in just 1 hour, i created 2 squeeze pages added the code and setup the entire funnel without any other software, theme or plugin and believe me, my technical knowledge is ridiculous! This was a week ago, and after that i was ready to buy solos and see how conversions go.

    The First Solo Ads
    There are several places where we can find solo ads providers but my favorite place so far has been the SOLO SWAP FB Group created by Lewis Turner. When we buy solo ads, we should take a look in testimonials and reviews from previous customers to be sure we are buying the solo with a reliable guy and this FB Group has lots of testimonials and reviews so we can buy with confidence. In last week, i bought solos to Jack Coxill, Zeid Makkawi, Wayne Smith, Richard Jones and all this guys provide me 50 clicks solos with mass overdelivery. On average my funnel is converting arround 40% which is quite acceptable. With some minor tweaks hopefully increase the conversion rate to around 50% which would be very good.

    Banking Clicks
    One of the subjects discussed by Lewis Turner in the coaching program was the click banking and the importance of finding partners to bank with. Once i have begun to buy solo ads yet realized the importance of doing click banking. Click banking is a great way to dramatically decrease the cost per subscriber and optimize all the process. The whole ideia of the funnel is about don´t leave clicks in the table.
    Next Steps
    The next webinar, will be about tracking softwares, wich will be my also my next purchase. I will talk about it here in my next post.

    New blog post!

    I would like to have feedback about new design :)

    [h=1]1000 Subscribers in my List![/h]
    Hello all. Almost a month is gone since my last post here. I will promise myself I will not let so much time pass until the next post. My plan is to start writing here at least once a week. Speaking of promises, as I said in the last post, I took care of blog “cosmetics” and would like to hear some opinions. I nkow that there is still some work to do here but it´s better, no? Here is what i have done in the last weeks:
    Buyed a tracking software:
    As I said in my last post here, it was in my plans to invest in tracking software. At the suggestion of Lewis Turner i bought QCC, software that pleased me, since it allows you to take full advantage of all the traffic that “enters” and “exits” in the funnel and in solo ads itself. The creator of QCC is Jayson Benoit and Lewis invite him to be in a live webinar with Solo Ads Supremacy students showing the big potencial this software has. The software gives really the “control” about all traffic received and sent out and we can really potentiate every single click in and out.

    Reach the mark of 1000 subscribers:
    More than a “rounded” number 1000 subscribers mark represents an important psychological barrier for those who are still starting at solo ads business. To reach this number i chose to invest some money to buy solo ads with reliable providers . Before i buy, i always try to take a look at the provider past testimonials and SOLO ADS GROUP was important on this. People in the group leave reviews about solo ads they bought itself and this way i can know what to expect when i am buying the solo. In last weeks, i bought solos with Peter Jones, Bob Bastian, Tom Lua, R Dilip Kumar, Ray Spacely, Paul Conway, Towhid Zaman, Brian Douglas, and Dan Daniels and all this guys delivered between 10 and 30% more than promissed. Also doing click banking was important to reach this mark. After i reach the 1000 subscribers mark i am now able to do 50 clicks swaps wich should boost the way my list is growing.

    Started the Swaps

    In last week i have started doing 50 clicks swaps with other people on solo ads business. This way, for every amount of clicks i send to someone, i receive the exacly same amount in my funnel wich gives me the chance of building my list faster than before when i was only buying solo ads. At this point, i grab a pen and a paper and i start contacting people on SOLO ADS GROUP and in skype rooms to book the swaps. I can say i done some swaps already and i have a lot of others scheduled until the end of the month. I decided not to start selling solo ads yet, i should start selling in a week or two.

    Planned my Next Steps
    At this moment, my funnel is converting arround 40% wich is not bad but can really be improved. A 5 or 10% improvement makes a big difference in long term, thats why i will invest some time with split testing to try to improve conversions.

    Booked my place in the Marketing Summit UK 2013 in Manchester

    This was something i was thinking on, since the end of 2012. Be in this event will give me the opportunity to listen closely some of the top marketers. I will also use this to prove to myself that I’m 100% focused in my dot com life [​IMG]
    Best Regards!
