Webstars2K Solo Ad Review

I decided to purchase a solo ad with Webstars2K online.  I found the service by doing a Google search for MLM Solo Ads. Maryanne is the webmaster and owner of the website. According to her website she has a list of 164k subscribers.  I find that very impressive.

She sells two solo ads.  You can send a solo ad to half her list (82,000 emails) for $49 or you can send a solo ad to her entire list (164,000) for $97.

I read a few of the testimonials on her website and decided to give it a try.  I figured I’d start with the smaller one so I could do a test and see what type of results I would get.  To be honest, I didn’t have high expectations, but I figured with a list that size, I would get at least 500 clicks and 100 new leads.

My reasoning for expecting this type of results was a 1% open rate (1% of 49,000 is 490 opens) and a 20% conversion rate (20% of 490 is 98).

receipt for web2kstars solo adI purchased the solo ad on January 7th, 2014 at 7:51 a.m. PST.  She responded to my my purchase email on January 10th and scheduled the solo ad to go out on January 12th.

Overall, I thought her customer service and communication were very good and I was happy with how quickly she sent out my solo ad.

Solo Ad I Used

I promote many of the Magnetic Sponsoring Courses.  I am an affiliate with them and have been promoting their products almost five years now.  For this solo ad, I promoted the Black Belt Recruiting Course.  The ad I used for this solo ad is shown below.

SUBJECT LINE: Learn How to Sponsor 20+ People a Month in Your MLM Business

Hello [firstname],

If you’re struggling with sponsoring people into your home business, keep reading.  If you hate to call prospects, hate to deal with rejection and are tired of chasing people, I can offer you a solution.

I found a free 60 minute video online with an interview of a guy who consistently sponsors 20+ reps per month into his business.  In one year alone sponsored more than 250 people personally.  He built a team of 10,000 distributors in less than two years.

Needless to say, he’s one of the best in his industry.  And during a recent interview he shared his secrets.

Would you like to know his secrets?  If so, check out the link below:

Additional Information

I used a tracking code with my solo ad to track my results.  I also had a one time offer, which no one purchased.

Results

web2k solo ad resultsWhat I want to do below is share my results from my Web2K Solo Ad.  I have also provided proof of my results via photo, so you know I am not making this up.

  • Clicks: 120
  • New Leads: 14
  • Conversion Rate: 11.67%
  • Cost per Click: $.41
  • Cost Per Lead: $3.50
  • Sales; $0
  • Return on Investment: $0

I’ve sent this same solo ad to several other lists and my worst conversion rate ever was 20%. And I normally pay about $1 per lead, not $3.50 per lead.

Recommendation

Overall, I’m not very happy with MY results of my solo ad with Webstars2K.  I’m not saying you shouldn’t try it out.   And I’m not saying my experience was a failure or scam.  Anytime you can generate leads online for less than $5 each, you are doing pretty good.  It just didn’t work as well as many other solo ads have worked for me.  If one of the 14 leads I generated decides to purchase one of the Magnetic Sponsoring Courses, then I can easily recoop my initial investment.

 

UPDATE MAY 2015

I did a second solo ad with Mary Anne of Webstars2k in May 2015.  The purpose of this ad was to promote my primary business opportunity.  I received 283 clicks with 26 opt-ins for a 9.2% conversion rate.  No one became a distributor on my team yet from that solo ad, but my typical conversion time is anywhere from 30 to 90 days, so I’ll have to wait and see.  Even if just one person joins my team I will get a positive ROI, so I’m not to worried about it.

Here is the ad that I used.

SUBJECT: The Almost Perfect Home Business, firstname

Hi Firstname,

I hope you are happy and well.

I’ll be short and to the point here.  You probably opened this email out of curiosity.  Maybe you are looking for a home business to help generate some extra money. Or maybe the title just caught your attention.

If you’re like most people you are tired of the hype and scams online.  If so, I understand because about a year ago I felt the same way.

Last April (2014), I finally found what I was looking for.  I learned about this secret, under the radar business opportunity from someone who visited one of my websites.  Once I learned about it I did my research for about three weeks, liked what I found, and then jumped in with both feet.

That was more than one year ago and I’m glad that I got started. Today, I have an international business that grows each month.

Here is a quick summary about the company:

  • International Opportunity in More than 60 Countries
  • Free to Join
  • Established, Reputable Company in Business for More than 20 Years
  • Products That Are High Quality and Affordable
  • No Membership Fees, Sign Up Cost, Renewal Fees, or Website Fees
  • No Inventory, Paperwork, Collecting Money or Delivering Products
  • Free Training and Support
  • Part of the Multi-Billion Dollar Wellness Industry
  • Leverages Referral Marketing

Final Analysis

I do recommend the Webstars2k Solo ad Service.  My best tips are to send someone to a capture page first, to give away something for free, to have a great subject line and to test your ad copy. You should also have realistic expectations.  Not everyone is going to opt-in or buy.

In addition, Maryanne is a true professional.  She is friendly and goes the extra mile to give you her best.  She provides great customer service and wants to make sure you are a happy customer.

Disclaimer: This is NOT a paid review, nor am I an affiliate with her.  It’s just a review of my results using the Webstars2K solo ad service.  Individual results will vary.

What are your thoughts?  Leave a comment below and let us know what you think.  I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi there,
    I know this review is a bit old, but if you would like to try this again with a different ad and on a different day of the week, let me know through the same email or at facebook (maryanne.myers.94). Sometimes people get alot of response, order from me for years, and sometimes they do not. I’m not sure why.

    Thank you very much for giving this review Chuck. I honestly thought you wouldn’t get 500 clicks, but I did assume you would get at least 300. It seemed to be a well written solo ad. I hope you will give many more examples such as this one in the future.

    I am going to try some advertising ideas myself. Of course it will be geared more toward selling the books I have published. I will keep track of the figures and share these too.

    We can all learn from each other’s successes and failures this way.

    Thanks again.

    I like the sincere tone and the truth veiled in these words.I would not be excited to try this service with my model at first, on the basis of your experience. I happen to be very conservative especially on online investments. However, when my leads start generating monies in excess of 0 in a month, I will definitely risk trying out a similar scheme and get back to you.Very informative to people starting out, just like me.
