Now, here's where you have to fork out more money - for traffic! Remember, if you want to make money as an affiliate in a short period, there's only one way - pay. Pay to advertise, or pay to get some traffic sent to your site.
12-Minute Affiliate offers a solo ad traffic service. The service is outsourced and it's not cheap compared to some other solo ad vendors, but again this is done-for-you. All you have to do is to pay, the rest is taken care of.
It says the traffic usually starts within 7-14 days, but if the suppliers are backed up, it may take longer. Which sounds REALLY slow to me.
12MA only deals with top-tier traffic (US, Canada, UK, Australia are specifically listed), which is good. For the Home Business niche, the price starts from $99. Personal Development from $159, and Weight Loss from $192 respectively. It claims to send 90-100 visitors and 20-25% will opt in. The more you order, the better deals (=cheaper) you will get.
I appreciate that the price includes all the handling, but I wouldn't buy traffic from here because;
- Too slow - solo ad sellers with a big list can send 100 visitors within minutes, if not seconds. Slow traffic means the visitors are towards the bottom of the rotator (means they've already seen many sales funnels like yours) Taking 7+ days, is far too slow.
- No analytics will be available - unless you use a link tracker such as Clickmagick (you can integrate it to your 12MA funnel - see "Other Resources" below), you won't know how many visitors have been sent and when. Only your email marketing service (AWeber) can tell you when they've opted in.
- Low opt-in rates - 20-25% opt-ins sounds a little low to me. With this kind of sales funnel, you could get a little more, around 35-40%.
90-100 visitors with 20-25% opt-ins means that you pay $99 to 12MA and you'll receive somewhere between 18-25 leads.
If you check Udimi and find sellers with good feedbacks, you can pay $50 for 110 visitors (100 plus bonus) from top-tier countries and receive 35-45 leads. (Please note: I'm not defining this. The results vary from vendor to vendor. Solo ad traffic is always hit & miss.)
