Ad Swaps - Increase Internet Traffic

1. What are Ad Swaps?

  • You promote someone else’s product, and in return, they promote your product. You are simply swapping resources.
  • This can provide a quick surge of traffic to your offer.
  • This is usually done by swapping squeeze/landing pages to each others’ subscribers.
  • This is just a basic JV (Joint Venture) arrangement.

2. Requirements?

  • Have a minimum of 100 subscribers on your mailing list before you use this method.
  • Have a minimum of 50 clicks per email you send out before using this method.

3. How to do it?

A. Warrior Forum:

  • Search for the term “Ad Swaps”.
  • Also, look under the “Joint Venture” forum, as some people also ask for Ad swaps there.
  • Do your due diligence, as some people will send you false clicks. Get to know the person first.

B. Facebook Groups:

  • Look for Facebook groups of people doing ad swaps, e.g., “Solo Ad Ad Swaps”.
  • You can look at the posts and see if anyone, in particular, has a good or bad review.

C. Safe Swaps: Link

  • Sellers here advertise how many clicks they can deliver and the cost.
  • Ad swaps are one of the few paid advertising methods that actually works well.
  • Start off low with just buying 50 clicks (for around $20), and see how well your response is.
  • Good for a quick injection of traffic.

D. Notes:

  • Always check out the product of the person you’ll be doing the ad swap first. Make sure you know what you are promoting and that it is high-quality content. Make sure that your product is very good as well.
  • Test that person’s opt-in process. Do they use double opt-in or single opt-in? It’s better to promote people who use double opt-in. Make sure they’re not using any shady practices. Test your own opt-in process as well.
  • Consider making a “personalized” page for the other party, and ask them to make a personalized page for you as well. A personalized page tends to convert better.
  • Try to affiliate your offer. Let your product offer a commission for people who promote your offer.
  • Make sure you have a confirmation page before you make them an offer. This way, you will be able to have their email address on your autoresponder mailing list, so they are also your subscribers.
  • If you make any sales, take your buyer off the prospect list. Treat your customers well.

4. Ratings:

A. John Thornhill:

  • My mentor, John Thornhill, gives Ad Swaps an overall traffic rating of ⭐⭐⭐ out of 5. It’s a good way to keep driving traffic.
  • Implementation: ⭐⭐ out of 5. Since it takes a while before you can use this strategy, you’ll first have to build a subscriber list of at least 100 subscribers, know how to create a squeeze/landing page, and create an autoresponder series, etc.
  • Speed of Results: ⭐⭐⭐ out of 5. Once you get this going, you can get pretty good results.
  • Work involved: 3 out of 5 stars. The initial setup takes a little while, but once you get it running, there’s not that much extra work involved.
