However, You may not know where to start and you don’t know how to find any solo mailing services that will send out a solo ad for you.
In this informative blog post I will cover how and where you can located solo mailing services to build your list and your business.
I also will give you access to my 1 stop shop of solo mailing services for ANY niche.
Where to Find Solo Mailing Services
- List Owners
Inner Circle List – The easiest place to start looking for a solo mailing services is within your inner circle. You know, the people that you are in connection with on a constant basis within your particular niche.
To better help you understand what I am saying let me give you a few examples of what I mean.
Places like your mastermind groups, social network sites and favorite groups or forums are an excellent starting point to find those that will send a solo ad or solo mailing to their list.
Someone may have even approached you in the past about doing the exact same thing that I am sharing with you now.
But peoples list within your inner circle are a great place to start, especially with someone in a complementary (not competitive) business.
Complementary Business List – Step out of your inner circle and start to look at those around you in complementary businesses.
Look especially at the ones that have a large list and a following of people you would like to introduce yourself and your product too.
To get things started, just connect with the business owner by sending an email, or connecting on Facebook and introduce yourself and your business.
Ask if he or she would be interested in a solo mailing. It’s that simple.
If you want to know a lighting speed fast way connect with complementary businesses who you can ask about solo mailings for specific niches, just leave a comment in the comment section below and I will hook you right up.
Guru List – Now that I have shared with you the possibilities of doing a solo ad with your inner circle and complementary businesses, lets move onto those people that you like to learn from (The Guru) and find out if they offer solo mailings.
Keep in mind that you want this to be a highly targeted mailing.
In other words, it would make no sense to send to a list of 10,000 just because it’s a large list if none of those people on that list are going to be interested in what you’re offering.
It would make more sense to find someone you like learning from that has a smaller more targeted list where the people would be more receptive to what you have to offer.
Because people have to work so hard to build their list and it’s their reputation on the line, some list owners will not send out solo mailings, this is normal.
So keep this in mind when you’re approaching them and make sure the offer you want them to send is top quality.
If they do happen to say no – don’t take it personally, just move on to the next person.
- Ezine Publishers
The next way you can find solo mailing opportunities is to look for a directory of ezines by doing a Google search.
One that comes to mind is JV Rocket (http://www.jvrocket.com/).
The have a list of 226,000 Internet- and Affiliate-Marketers that he’s willing to send a solo mailing to…for a pretty penny ($2,500 per mailing)!
Before you blow a gasket, relax…
…there are less inexpensive places out there ( I will give you access to some), you just have to look for them.
If you’re going to look for a directory of ezines and find solo mailing opportunities that way, be a bit leery and do your research.
Ask for recommendations or look for testimonials to see if anyone has used and been successful with a specific one, because all solo ad providers who provide solo mailing services are not always legit.
Another option is safe-swaps.com, it’s a directory of list owners who offer solo mailings in a variety of niches.
Sellers are rated, and clicks are guaranteed, so you can be sure you’re getting exactly what you’ve paid for.
