It has been over a week since my last post because I took a quick break to France while I had a little time off with the kids, we all went camping and had a great time. I must consider this next time I go away as there was one thing missing ‘INTERNET’, unfortunately, there was no wifi where we stayed so I had to go ‘cold turkey’ for 10 days, although it was refreshing to not be in front of my laptop for most of the day, I did miss a few things I normally check on a daily basis.
One thing I did set up before I went away was a Solo Ad, I had never used solo ads before as I have heard a lot of bad press about them where marketers have purchased clicks and clicks was about all they had got, I believe what some unscrupulous providers do is have some kind of bot that just registers clicks on your link which looks like they are sending real traffic. Anyhow, I looked around and found a provider I was happy with and connected with him on Skype, we agreed on a deal where for $100 he would send me 300 clicks. When I got back from my trip I checked my stats for the solo ad which is as follows: I received 351 clicks and got 100 sign ups to the offer which is around 28.5% and no immediate sales, I did not expect any but it would have been nice.
I believe that 28.5% is not a good figure going by the average so I don’t think I will be using this provider again any time soon, unless in a couple of weeks some sales start to come through, I have tracked this solo ad so I will know where any sales come from. So now I will have a search around for a new supplier.
Time now to get back active in the forums and the communities and to catch up on what I’ve been missing while I have been away, I know I have at least one webinar to watch.
