We Spent $12,732 on Udimi Solo Ads, Here’s What Happened

2019 Update: Don’t forget to read my latest and best solo ad guide and review here: Solo Ads Traffic: The Definitive Guide

Solo ads are the fastest way to build a list and business, but if not done correctly, you can lose a lot of money. In this article, you’ll learn how I spent over $12,000 on Udimi, what I did and what kind of results I got with it.

I get solo ads related questions all the time, and the problem is that everyone is looking for a simple solution because the idea of the solo ads seems very simple, but I can assure you that the truth is opposite.  I know that you’re looking for more information on Udimi and I’m going to talk about that soon, but give me a minute to talk about something more important than just Udimi: your money.

If you want to make solo ads work, you need to understand the traffic, where they are coming from, what’s their mindset and how to make changes to your funnels to make it work. I’ve talked about different funnels in my previous blog posts or even in Home Business Bootcamp, but solo ads have their own funnel, to begin with.

To get started, watch the video below where I explain how to make solo ads work:

Your solo ads transition is important

I’ve talked about transition countless times and how it affects the conversion rates because it’s the most important thing you’ll ever do in your campaign. If you say one thing in your email copy and another thing in your landing page, things will go wrong and it’ll affect your conversion rates in ways you can’t imagine.

How to make Udimi solo ads work?

It’s about time to talk about the elephant in the room, the Udimi.

Here’s the problem with Udimi:

Buying solo ads isn’t easy and it’s never been easy. Back then, you had to deal with the solo ad provider, negotiate the price, make sure he’s not selling you fake clicks and everything. It seemed complicated and that’s why solo ads was a very closed market but Udimi changed everything, which was good and bad.

Udimi made it easier to buy solo ads for newbies which started creating very unrealistic expectations in the affiliate marketing world. Because the idea of solo ads is simple and now thanks to Udimi, buying it is easy too, they always convert and make you money, but that’s not true.

In order to get the best results with solo ads, you need to research the provider’s history and figure out how they’re generating their list, then contact them and start from small purchases, then work your way up if the traffic is good.

We invested $12,732 in Udimi solo ads, here are the results:

These are the first things I learned after investing this much money:

  • Most of the times, you won’t make your money back immediately
  • Solo ads success depends on your brand and how well you build a relationship with your subscribers
  • It’s a smart idea to also generate pixel data to retarget your leads from solo ads in Facebook and YouTube (helps with branding)

My first ad was to a presell page without an opt-in request, the goal was to get people to engage with the content (text and videos), then send them to a Clickbank offer.

I invested $100 in solo ads and made a $37 commission. I did the same thing a couple of more times with different offers and pages.

After investing almost $1,000 in ads, I found out the best way to profit from solo ads is to go with the common way, which is building a list.

If you’re one of those people who buy solo ads and doesn’t get any sales from them, here’s how I turned this total $12,732 solo ads investment into over $50,000 in cash:

  1. Solo ads are like cold traffic, so you need to build a relationship: Have a personal website or YouTube channel and ask them to follow you there in your first follow-up email.
  2. Keep a flow from Opt-in page to your final sales pitch page: Follow a theme in your marketing language and don’t change your words. For example, if your landing page says they will lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks, you should repeat the same thing everywhere without changing the numbers.
  3. Don’t invest your money if you’re not ok with losing it: This one is clear.
  4. Be different: People who join your list from a solo ad email blast are being bombarded with emails every day, so the key is to stand out, be different and hands on.

How to find the best solo ad providers on Udimi?

This is an important question that has a long answer, and I’m going to start with a video. Watch the video below to learn how I find the best solo ads on Udimi:

As I explained in the video above, the best way to find good solo ads on Udimi is to join the conversation. At this point, Udimi even has a forum where you can research providers and learn more about them before buying solo ads form them which is a big plus.

If you’d like to learn the best way to make affiliate commissions using Udimi, I recommend the CB Masters Academy course where you learn how I make six-figures a month promoting affiliate products. In this program, you will also get a FULL solo ads course as a bonus!

Let me know what you think about my Udimi experience in the comments below and join the Aversity if you’re to start a life-changing online business.

  • In the first video you said you ask people to leave a comment so you can send emails to people who are interested in your content. So that means people give their email address when they comment. That makes sense but then what is the opt-in page for? In your diagram you put an opt-in page first. People who leave an email address in the opt-in page might end up not being interested in your content. So I don’t see why you would have an opt-in page when you’re collecting addresses when people comment.

  • Interesting experiment! I recently joined the Done For You program and I’m going to use Udimi traffic to generate sales. Thank you for the platform you’re building here

  • I had an issue in the past with Udimi. I spent about $1200 on solo ads, went for the most expensive top rated seller. Did my homework, made the campaign as targeted as possible. What happened was that I got the traffic and a good rate of email sign-ups from the landing sqeeze page but virtually nobody even opened any of the follow-up autoresponder emails. Spent serious money on a good copywriter. I think this was very suspicious and weird. Also weird was that nobody opened any of the broadcoast email messages that I sent out. Zero sales. I filed a complain and a request for a refund which was refused, then I filed a complain and refund request through paypal, finally after sending paypal the explanation with some screenshots I got my money refunded by paypal. Be very carefull with this kind of advertising. If the traffic is really that good, why on earth those sellers are not using it themself? Just my 2 cents. You can only lose your money once. Taje care. I’m now running a network marketing home based business in the healthy & wellness area that does pretty well.

  • I am using Udimi as a buyer for almost a year, and used to work with many sellers. If you are new on Udimi – you should better buy solos from a promoted seller, and you should ask him/her about your niche 🙂 I mean does the seller work with your niche or not, it is very important

  • You can even not read this comments, just try to buy advertising for your business and see result. For me it is good and profitable, as for you, just try and see or buy the smallest amount of clicks and test it.

  • Be sure that it is normal and comfortable website. The only thing that I strongly recommend is to check all rules of this service before you start use it.

  • Hi all,

  • When it comes to marketing your business online there are 2 major mistakes people make when creating a big post.

    Mistake # 1. Using a misleading headline.
    Marketing your business or product online using a misleading headline does not build trust.
    After reading this post, then into the comments, it is obvious that most of your readers did not get what your headline told them they would receive. Your headline did not deliver.
    Mistake # 2.
    When readers reach out through the comment section of your post it is very important you answer them. This gives you the opportunity to connect back with your readers who are reaching out to you.
    Ignoring negative or even the positive comments is costing you money.
    The most successful marketers online build relationships with their readers.

    • Interesting. I’ve been wandering around the internet wilderness for about 30mths, spent lots of money, attended lots of webinars and workshops kicked some minor goals but never could crack the magical $10k per month. I belong to a number of groups currently but I’m seeing that the learning process here is to grow the list organically and to avoid buying ads. The group seems to be under this spell that the guru has put us in. I’ll be an old man before I make some money doing it this way. I’m very interested in solo ads because you have to pay for quality whatever field you are in. The other 30 mth observation is, that most marketing is basically all the same, just dressed up differently, so it really comes down to your connection or engagement you have with the marketer you are looking at, if you’re on the same page as it were.
      So this site here will be interesting.

  • I’m a bit confused with the Solo Ads method. Do you only have to give them your affiliate link? Is it necessary providing the ad seller a text or an already created email? I’m saying this because some seller seems to make the ad copy text for you. In Udimi you can even send only the URL link without including text. I’m not sure how this works. Thank you.

  • I used to work with diferent platforms that provide solo, but most of them are too stupid to recognize some bots that provide traffic, or some cheap click services! Unlike Udimi platform.. I did understood it once I bought my first solo’s on Udimi, and the price was 35 or 45 cents per visitor. After 200 click’s I got 2 sales and 57 optins. So I can confirm that it works.

  • I have started to use Udimi a few weeks ago and I’m pretty impressed with the results I got so far. I have ordered 2 solos, each brought me a bunch of sales! Let’s talk about the pros and cons of Udimi.

    Pros:

    -It’s easy to use and quite newbie-friendly. Although the website is quite easy to use, they have their own YouTube channel where you can find all the tutorials you may need.

    -They have an outstanding filter. I do not have to pay for non-human traffic, it filters all bot and non-human clicks so I do not have to worry about overpaying.

    -They have search by niche, which is quite convenient;

    -Udimi offers a bunch of great functions for the low price (Prime Membership). There are a lot of great perks to check out.

    -Udimi is affordable. Although my business is not big enough, I’m glad I can spend few bucks weekly on advertising. And you know, what, I’m getting great results. A lot of sales!

    Talking about the cons, I do not have anything bad to say about Udimi. I only have a good experience with this platform I would recommend to my friends.

    • I appreciate all of you telling what did not work for. But do you mind share what really work. What programs you use etc. That will take the rest of us who struggle also forward. Thank you very much!

      • Hello Ester. You need to either, create a squeeze page to direct the solo ad traffic to, or put a subscription plugin on your blog. Then you be able to build a list of subscribers

  • Uhhhh…this was click-baity. You never actually said what happened after you spent $12k. You’re basically trying to get people to eventually buy from you. Interesting premise and I wanted to learn more but you didn’t deliver on your headline. I think you should add more info on what ACTUALLY happened after you spent all that…

  • Solo Ads sure work, I’m an affiliate marketer, 5 figure income and solo ads is the top paid traffic i use. but solo ads is a double edged knife , you have to know who u buy from , dont go after the cheap , like really unrealistic cheap click, u are asking for trouble there …

    All the best 🙂
