Solo ads are basically spammy newsletters that have a single promotional purpose and not much value.

There are a couple of definitions here:

If you decide to use auch things, make sure you are careful to vet the promoters making promises about conversions that they will not keep most of the time.

you are at wrong place to learn this stuff.. Google for "internet marketing forums" and signup for top few. I would not link them here.


to answer your question, Solo ads are basically a mutual agreement with 2 people who owns email lists. One will send his promo email (called as Blast) to another and vice versa.

More often if the 2nd guy have a smaller list size than the first it can be done for a price and the price will be based on number of clicks they guarantee to generate.

For them we are not humans, we are just a part of a list of its size and our interest is a click for them.
