Especially if you're on a limited budget!
Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that lets a product owner increase sales by allowing others targeting the same audience – “affiliates” – to earn a commission by recommending the product to others. At the same time, it makes it possible for affiliates to earn money on product sales without creating products of their own.
A solo ad in affiliate marketing is a way where you send out an email to a solo vendor's list. Thus, having your Landing Page, Squeeze Page, Website or Affiliate Product Sales Page’s Link to other people email’s list related to your niche or product.
In other words, it is simply like an email that you send out to your friend. The only difference is that here you pay a fixed amount of money to a solo ad provider and they send out your email their email list. Solo ads act as email-based advertisements bought from other email list owners. Whereby messages sent are typically dedicated messages-it’s all about promotion!
So, how does it work? Once you’ve got your eyes on a solo ad list, you proceed to contact the owner of the list. You can even buy solo ads through gaining access to the list from their site. Purchases are typically made based on either how many subscribers you’d like to have on your mailing list or by how many clicks each email gets. In the end, if the cards are in your favor, those clicks derived from your solo ad campaign will get you opt-ins to your own email list and possibly sales. However, Keep in mind that the most important thing is to build your own email list and get more web traffic. Then you can market similar niche products to these folks later.
Most affiliates get hung up on the affiliate percentages and choosing a low front end price. In my opinion this is a grave mistake that needs to come to an end immediately. It's really important to understand that the average earning per sale is the one thing that truly matters. You need to look at what affiliate program is more profitable i.e. one that requires fewer sales to make more money.
For instance, which of these two offers is more profitable: one that pays 100% commission on a $7 product or one that pays 50% on a $197 offer? Obviously, it is the high priced offer, but what happens when you add an upsell?
How about 100% commission on a $7 front end, 70% on $37 upsell and 50% on $197 second upsell? Suddenly, the potential soars up to close to $241 per sale of which you’ll get to keep $130.
Therefore, when you are offer-hunting and buying solo ads, keep in mind that the average commission value of the affiliate program is what should be the defining factor.
Calculating the Average Commission Value for Affiliate Programs
The formula is simple:
ACV = (Front End Price x 1) + (Upsell #1 Price x 0.7) + (Upsell #2 Price x 0.5)
The ideal average commission value of solo ads is based on the 50% ROI rule. You should only promote affiliate offers that have the capacity to cover 50% of 500-click solo ad cost with 1 sale.
Affiliate marketings defining nature is its element of more risk and less control. More often than not, you buy solo ads from individual sellers, therefore, you are likely to be dealing with the list owner directly. With this comes the potential for trouble!
When dealing with solo ad lists, you are sometimes faced with risk. There are less-than-ideal methods being used to build some email list. In an ideal situation, the best list are built through conversion of traffic from websites or through buying advertising. That is then converted with a squeeze page. Unfortunately, there are a few shady people in the world of solo ads. Buyer Beware!
Some people use scrapping software that goes from website to website gathering any email address it comes across. As you can guess, those email addresses ultimately convert poorly.
Affiliate marketing has a shockingly high 95% failure rate. Fortunately for you, I have a few pointers up my sleeve. I will show you how you can identify the crooks from the good list owners and a good list.
