If you’ve been online for any amount of time, you know the dream.
With just a laptop and a good business opportunity, you can rid yourself of the daily grind and give the finger to your boss on the way to your new life!
The truth of the matter is, when you start your online business you realize very quickly that it isn’t quite as easy as your expectations (and hype!) pictured it to be.
As a matter of fact, there are many out there that are still wondering what this whole “auto-pilot” thing is all about.
So far, all they have seen is work and maybe have asked themselves, “Is this worth it?”
Easy and Quick
Just about every hyped up marketing campaign that I have ever run across includes the terms easy and quick in their marketing.
Because this is exactly what people want and you sell what people want, but give them what they need.
Yes, they want out of the rat race, but aren’t willing to do anything about it if there is even the slightest chance that they will have to leave their comfort zones!
Silly? Yes! As well as a fantasy, it is a business opportunity after all.
You still can exit your current position as an economic slave.
You can still design your life the way that you want.
You can still create a life of complete freedom, but it all comes at a price.
So what do those “gurus” do when it comes to finding targeted leads for their businesses?
You know, the types of prospects that actually buy something?
I’ll get to that in a minute, but first let me throw something out there to make you think a bit.
Paid Advertising vs. Free Advertising
People are still under the impression that all that is really necessary for any type of online success resides within the world of social media.
Do not get me wrong here, social media has been a very effective way to generate targeted traffic, but it has changed quite a bit from the “golden days” of adding to your biz op to your news feed on Facebook.
Today, more than ever, there is a tremendous amount of competition and please…
…don’t let Facebook or any other large social media site know that you are actually promoting a work from home program/opportunity.
You see, most of these platforms, and I’m talking Facebook, Google, etc. are not the least bit interested in Sally Sue generating the leads she needs for her new MLM.
As a matter of fact, many business models are actually banned from the ad platforms of these organizations.
Yes, there are ways around them, but this requires a bit higher marketing skill level than just about any, if not all, newbie marketers possess.
Learning to negotiate your way around the advertising guidelines and terms of service on these Internet giants takes a bit of research and experience.
Is it possible?
Sure, but the most likely scenario for most online marketers is that they will spend lot of money with these companies for very little return.
Can you get training?
Yes, you can, but it will cost quite a bit for you to attend the training of a truly successful advertising specialist.
And then there is the other side of the equation as well….you need to test your sales funnel again and again until it is converting high enough for you to make a profit.
I did mention “free’ advertising above, but there is a problem with that as well.
Basically, the freer something is, the more sweat you have to put into your marketing efforts.
Translation: It takes a ton of work to effectively advertise for free.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not here to simply create another job for myself.
I want the dream! I want the “auto-pilot,” sipping on my exotic cocktail with my toes in the sand of my Internet dream.
And let’s not forget about the new algorithms that Facebook and others use.
While you may have 1,000 people that “follow” you, unless you are extraordinarily active your not really making much headway in your general feed, not when it comes to promoting something.
I would also expect that if you were truly interested in actually trading your lifestyle for something better then you would probably want to do what the “big boys” do in terms of promoting your opportunity.
These folks do not do a lot of “free” marketing techniques.
Because paid advertising is exceptionally faster is more scalable.
These men and women want results, they want them quickly and with the least amount of effort as possible…and they are willing to pay for it.
Yes, Paid Advertising is the Way to Go
So let’s just say that paid advertising is the best, quickest and most effective path.
What type of paid advertising are you going to commit to?
Text ads? Solo ads? Banner ads? Direct mail? Magazine ads?
Depending on your budget, you are probably going to stick with something a little bit conservative.
And, for the most part, the big boys do as well…at least until they find a method that works well…then it is time to scale!
While most of the aforementioned advertising options are utilized by seasoned marketers, as a newbie you must be effective very quickly.
You also must be profitable relatively quickly also.
Oh…and you don’t have a lot of time, you are still working that 9 to 5!
So what’s the answer?
In my opinion, all of the advertising methods I mentioned work, but…
…some of these methods require a lot of testing and experience for them to become an advertising staple in your marketing efforts.
However, there is one method that anyone can do and the best thing is that it does not require much effort to implement.
Of course, I am talking about one of my favorite and most effective advertising methods…solo ads.
What’s the Deal with Solo Ads?
I love solo ads.
I hate solo ads.
Let me explain.
If you can find a good solo ad provider, using this ad method can be quite effective and profitable.
When you find the right solo ad provider, it’s absolutely magical and finding great prospects is a breeze!
You will have higher opt-in rates and higher conversions with minimal work.
In a sea of solo ad providers, it can take a while to find a good one.
The good news?
I found a few really good providers…and…
…I also found a GREAT ONE!!!
No, I’m not going to let you in on this secret traffic generation Godzilla, that source is reserved for those that are willing to commit to my team.

For the rest of you…
…well, the material above doesn’t matter at all if you aren’t going to sign up and do something.
Do you have to do it with me?
Of course, not.
But find something…anything and commit to it!
Take action and start the process of changing your life.
At least you will know how to generate those leads…easily and effectively.
See you at the top!
