    You don't care to check because you no longer a newbie :p

    Most solo ad lists are built with newbies who are just starting out and don't have much idea about the IM world. These are mostly churn and burn list types, sending promotional emails 2-3 times a day. Their open rate and CTR is around 1-2% at best.

    Then there are experts who build a list of intermediate/advance marketers and who share engaging content to build a strong relation with their subscribers. They don't do solo ads, they might do affiliate promotions when a great product comes out.

    Be careful when buying a solo ad though these days as there are many scams where there are not only fake bots that click your link but also subscribe to your list and now even advanced bots have come up that will open and click the links in your followup emails as well :/

    I also saw someone selling a solo ad with guaranteed FE sales. So they would take your $100 for solo ad and buy 2-3 $7 FE products on your funnel so it may seem like a buyers list.

    this is why I not into solo ad much " unless I got extra funds " to test again ...I do have some sales way back using solo ads.. hmm quite questionable as IM still using email marketing and this is still the productive way to hold ur clients.

    Yes it is working great for expert marketers who are building relation with their subscribers :) They have 10-20% open rate and they also retarget their subscribers via fb ads as they have their email ids.

    What methods you using for building list? One of the best methods to build a quality list is to do a product launch and promote it via JV and give them 100% commissions.

    I find using fb ads to build an IM list risky :/ although I have seen people do it.

    FB ad is expensive but depend how u tweek it. also depend on " luck " to be frank depend how your ad look ..graphic does will attract people but problem is the niche ...still people will buy? beside click.
    I also don't bother to check out those ads appear on my Facebook. I ask before FB user who not into IM , they told me they very rare will check out the sponsor ad ..Unless the products suit them so again subjective.

    yup I seem before some IM using FB ad to get leads.
