Facebook Solo Ads Groups Revealed

Updated: January 19, 2018

You should join a few Facebook solo ads groups if you are promoting a "make money online" product and wish to build a list of subscribers for the cheapest price. Solo ad traffic vendors post their advertisements in their group daily. You will not pay more than $0.35 per click ($35 per 100 visits to your sales page). But how trustworthy are they? And will you get a good results from the traffic supplied by them?

Facebook Solo Ads Groups Revealed

Choose Sellers Who Have A Website

The solo ad vendors who advertise in such groups normally charge $0.35 per click (unique visitor to your site) or less - as low as $0.30 per click as a seasonal discount. 80-85% of the visitors should be from T1 countries (USA, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand).

Firstly check the vendor's profile and if he/she has a website. If they do, they're generally pretty trustworthy. If you access their website, you'll find them sell traffic for much higher rates, say $0.50 per click or more. Contact them directly via Facebook message and they'll give you a "Facebook discount" price, hopefully for $0.35 per click or less.

Why are they considered trustworthy if they have a solo ad website? The reason is because they're genuinely focused on buyers. They're targeting genuine customers like you - people who wish to build subscribers who are actually interested in business opportunities.

If a vendor you find in the Facebook group does not have a solo ad website - don't try them. Because they usually only make solo ad deals with other vendors, and the purpose of their business is quite different. I'll explain what it is.

Solo Ads Groups For Solo Ad Vendors

The majority of the active members in the Facebook solo ads group are vendors themselves. They sell & buy each other's traffic, i.e. essentially swap their list of subscribers around.

"Hey, bro. I have one slot available for 0.34cpc (34 cents-per-click). Let me know if you need."
"No thanks, I'm actually looking to sell right now. I can offer you mine for 0.33cpc."
"Ok then, speak soon."

This is a typical conversation exchanged between two sellers. They run the solo ad business almost solely within the groups, means it's crucial to reach out to as many other members in the group day-in, day-out in order to sell more traffic.

On the other hand, vendors who buy traffic from other vendors in the same group are looking for quantity over quality. They're looking to take as many leads as possible, they don't care whether their subscribers are ever interested in trying out online business products or not. Their subscribers are full of get-rich-quick dreamers, in fact.

Please note I'm not saying it's bad - this is a Facebook Solo Ads marketplace. It's a cat-and-mouse game, and this is how the market is established. They must make sure to sell traffic to 2 or more other vendors, while also buy traffic from 1 vendor to refresh their list of subscribers...so they must always sell more than they buy to make a profit.

In order for them to collect as many leads and as quickly as possible, their typical sales page would look like one of these. 

PayPal Spam Sales Page Examples

"PayPal Immediate Withdrawal For You $17,075!" "PayPal verified & tested: Instant Access to $800 Now!"

Their sales page often suggests as if PayPal will give you a cash gift if you simply sign up. So people do sign up. People who believe they can get free money out of nowhere would sign up. They're not looking for online business opportunities, and they don't have a cent to spend.

Subsequently, these people who sign up will become a subscriber, and start receiving a swipe (email message) 2-3 times daily. A typical swipe will look like this;

Subject: Something's Wrong With Your Account


Can You Check This? =>>

It looks like it's all yours to collect... do they owe you so much?
Do you think something's wrong?

Better than winning a lotto anyway, I wouldn't tell many people.
Otherwise it would spoil it.

Too good to keep to myself!


If you bought a traffic from these guys, your business product would be advertised this way...targeted towards people who are looking for free money someway, somehow.

They would receive this mail and open it because it told them something was wrong with their "account". They would click the link because it said there'd be something better than a lotto...only to be directed to your sales page.

They might sign up with you, but you know the chance of conversion will be extremely slim.

For that reason - because none or very few of their subscribers are potential buyers - I wouldn't recommend you to buy a traffic from the vendors who solely trade within Facebook solo ads groups. Buy a traffic from the ones who own a solo ads website, because they are at least committed to help online marketers make some sales. Ultimately!

Solo Ad Testimonials

There are also quite a few solo ad testimonial groups in Facebook where you can join and find trusted solo ad vendors from the latest testimonials.

Here's another tip; don't trust the statistics given in the testimonial - it's a spam bot alert! I'll explain why.

Delivery of a good solo ad traffic is mainly measured by the opt-in rate. The rate of more than 40-45% is considered good. It means simply speaking, if someone ordered 100 clicks (visitors) and the opt-in rate was 46%, it means 46 people signed up with them from the sales page.

Unfortunately, it's hard to tell if all these 46 "people" are real humans. Bots can sign up. Bots can become a subscriber, open a swipe email, click the link attached to it, and sign up again at whatever the next opt-in page they've landed. 

Spam bots are so widespread and, often neither the seller nor buyer is aware that they're actually exchanging a lot of bots. Even though their filtering system is supposed to block bot traffic, that's really not enough. Often neither of them knows (or cares about!) how to closely block newborn spam bots, unfortunately. Especially with those who deliver the traffic fast, even the most reliable tracking/filtering systems such as Clickmagick cannot detect brand new bots in time.

Solo Ad Testimonials

Left: Fast delivery, but how fast? The seller may be delivering too fast - before spam bots can be detected. Right: This seller helped the buyer make some commission sales. It shows this is a quality traffic.

So when you see a testimonial that says 60-70% opt-ins...  Don't believe it offhandedly. The contributor is unlikely to be aware how much of it is real. 

Solo Ad "Sales" Testimonials

There are a few Facebook Solo Ad Sales Testimonial groups where members are allowed to leave a testimonial only if they made a sales from the traffic received. I suggest that you should join, and check the contributor's profile. If he/she is promoting a similar product to yours and has made some sales, it means the vendor may be likely to send you the same quality of traffic to you.

Don't Pay Less Than $0.30 Per Click

The price per click in the Facebook solo ads market has been slowly lowering down. Many vendors charge as low as $0.30 for bulk purchase or as part of a seasonal discount campaign. I'd say $0.30 is the lowest right now.

If someone is selling traffic for $0.29 or less - check the vendor very carefully (i.e. testimonials, website, and their profile). I wouldn't trust their traffic. Their list of subscribers is likely to be outdated, or they're sending a bot traffic. You'll be wasting your money!

Facebook Solo Ads Groups Revealed

If you are looking to promote "make money online - bizopp (business opportunities)" products, it's easy to find solo ad vendors who charges you $0.35 per click or less. Here's a summary of tips how you choose trustworthy vendors.

  • Choose a vendor who also has a website that sells solo ad traffic.
  • Don't rely on testimonials written by a solo ad vendor on another vendor.
  • Don't get swayed by the high opt-in rate claimed in the testimonial - likely to include bot opt-ins.
  • Don't get swayed by the phrase "fast delivery" - the speed is irrelevant!
  • Check solo ad sales testimonials - if a vendor's helped someone make sales, he/she may be able to help you, too. 
  • Don't go for vendors who're selling traffic for less than $0.30 per click, unless they're running a special campaign.

    1. Hi Franko, yes, some others have also said Udimi’s good. The support is great so if something goes wrong your payment can be refunded. I’ve had some experiences as a seller as well as a buyer there, and I can say nothing will go awfully wrong with Udimi. Thanks for your comment.

  1. Very helpful. I would also recommend Udimi as it is a great place to buy and sell solo ads. You can get high quality traffic that is sure to convert. Try it now.

  2. Better watch out. So many new solo ad vendors from se Asia sending out bots. They don’t know they are because they don’t know how to filter out bots properly.

    1. Hi Anson, it’s very hard to detect who sends spam bots without knowing. I’ve recently bought a traffic from a brand new seller who had very little technical knowledge. I had to teach him how to use Clickmagick…but the traffic he was sending me was genuine and very responsive. So it really depends where the sources are – this particular seller must have bought a good traffic from elsewhere. Whereas others can sell/buy spam bots each other and spread.

  3. What do you think about sellers increasing the prices in the past few days ray. they struggle to find buyers but some r able to sell for 0.4cpc or more,

    1. Hi Michael, yes it’s a little silly someone said “let’s increase our prices” and everyone else instantly followed… Now I have a solid reason to prefer Udimi, where you can buy traffic as low as $0.35cpc. More probability to avoid the vendors on Facebook except some experts who know how to avoid delivering bots! The prices will come down again in time for sure. We can only pay for the quality, accordingly. Thanks for leaving a comment.

    1. Hello, I suggest that you should try Udimi, where you can find a suitable solo ad seller according to your budget, and you can casually message them and ask if the can promote your niche (= product category) on your behalf.

      Whether you can make money or not depends on your sales page as well as the deliverability of the solo ads by the seller so it’s hard to say. If you give me your page URL, I can take a look and give you an advice. Don’t hesitate to email me. Thanks for your visit.

  4. Thanks for revealing the secret Ray, I appreciate your honesty. Because I’ve tried a few solo ad services picked from some facebook groups and I was almost scammed. Received no sales whatsoever. I got many opted ins but none was responsive. I just had to delete the subs. I think I paid like $37 to 40 each. I try to use Udimi instead from next time.

    1. Hi Seb, thanks for sharing your experience and sorry to hear that you’ve been ‘scammed’ that way. We have seem many – I mean MANY – solo ad vendors in the group who send fake (bot) traffic. Such vendors are eventually banned from the group, and other group members alert each other. So you just need to check the reputation of the solo ad vendor before contacting them.

      Udimi is great, I trust their filtering system, and if you see something suspicious, you can contact the helpdesk and they’ll investigate the source of traffic you’ve received for you. I find them extremely helpful.

      Thanks for your comment Seb,

  5. Well said well done mate.
    Too many scammers out there in the solobiz groups.
    I’m disputing right now, bought 500c and the scammer stopped sending after 50. No communication no reply. Waiting to hear from paypal.

    1. Hi John, thanks for your comment. Yes there are so many scammers, aren’t they. Sorry to hear about your experience, and I can imagine how frustrated you must be…because I did also have a few troubles when I first started out. My buyers failed to send me the traffic as they promised and I had to dispute against PayPal also…I seem to remember it takes a month for PayPal to reverse the charge. I hope yours will be sorted quickly. Thanks again John for your visit.
