18 months ago I launched http://blogninja.com with the concept of a free incentivized training program to get people started learning how to make a blog and the key pillars of monetizing it.
When I first launched it on my list, it did awesome. Â Â Then I had friends like John Chow, Â Zac Johnson, and others send it to their lists and, Â of course, Â it did awesome. Â Their audience was familiar with me.
I then started a campaign on Facebook and was doing so well… Â SO well.. Â Until they deemed it against their guidelines (#%!@$%) and nuked my account(s).
Loosing Facebook broke my heart for this project. Â Facebook is THE scalable solution of consistent traffic.
So, in my search for traffic I started hearing about solo ads (People that would email your stuff but instead of a CPA they did a cost per click. The range is around .45 to .75, so Â NOT Â horrible). I tested many but that was all I could do was test because they can only blast out once. Â While it was profitable for me it was not scaleable.
Then someone brought up a name from the past – Harris Fellman, who I have been acquaintances with for about a decade, and said he had a traffic network that particularly catered to email.
Itâ€™s called TrafficForMe. Â Â I signed up but then shot him a note of what I was trying to do. Â His network is a lot like solo mailers but all the people can scale. Â So, if the emailers worked for me then I could scale it up! I tested with several of his mailers and like any campaign start small work your way up, and before I knew it I had 5-6 SOLID guys I was spending 5k/day on together. Â Then that scaled up from there.
These are not bulk emailers. Â They have good feeds of people in the verticals you are looking for traffic in.
So, if you are in a position like me where youâ€™re outside of your warm traffic zone and Facebook / Google donâ€™t feel you are â€œwithin the guidelinesâ€ then you definitely should check out TrafficForMe.
High quality traffic, Â less cost than Facebook, Â same results. Â I am very happy with them.
