Solo-E Certified Entrepreneur Expert
From the Desk of Terri Zwierzynski, the Solo-CEO
Business Strategist and Marketing Consultant

February 1, 2013

Dear Solo Entrepreneur Expert,

You have a website, you are an established expert in your field, and you are constantly creating new, high quality content - but the old marketing techniques to get your content noticed by your ideal clients are no longer working as well. Marketing technology, systems and channels are changing so fast you can't keep up. It seems like you’re forced to pour time and resources into keeping up with the newest marketing tactics and strategies - class after class, newsletter after newsletter, and article after article – but you still struggle to build your list and find and convert new prospects.

What’s worse is that because you struggle to build your list, you struggle to help the people who need your help most. You’re passionate about helping others, but you get so bogged down in reaching them that your efforts fall flat.

It doesn't have to be that way!

Pool your marketing efforts and resources with an exclusive group of fellow Solo-E Certified Experts, and let Solo-E handle the SEO, social media and traffic challenges: showcase your expertise with ease, reach more prospects, and grow your business and your profits. Let us help you leverage the marketing activities you are already doing - through continuous, cooperative, and collaborative, cutting-edge marketing!

"Thank you Solo-E! As a Solo-E expert, I am so excited about all the results we are seeing. I can track 30% of my list growth to Solo-E promotions. For about $200 a month they promote my products, teleseminars, blog posts and other content to their large and very segmented audience. From a budget stand point, it would be hard for me to hire a VA to do that much for me at that price and they wouldn't have access to the audience that Solo-E has. As a business coach I know that the biggest problem that entrepreneurs face is their lack of visibility. If you are ready to get your name out, you need to check out Solo-E."

In other words, if you’re a solo entrepreneur who wants to help other solo entrepreneurs, loves to create content for them, and wants to reach them more effectively by using the power of collaboration, then you’re in the right place.

Welcome to Solo-E.com, where you’re invited to become a
Solo-E Certified Entrepreneur Expert (Apply here).

Before I tell you more about what that means – and how we can help each other, let me tell you a little more about myself:

I’m Terri Zwierzynski (Terri Z), founder of Solo-E.com – a solo entrepreneur myself. Laid off after the dot-com crash of 2001, I found myself deciding to strike out on my own. But it was hard, because there wasn't a lot of information available for solo entrepreneurs online back then. So in 2003 I got involved in a project that turned into Solo-E.com, a place where solo entrepreneurs like me can get information they can trust.

So, I know this market – because I am this market.

The marketplace of solo entrepreneurs is extremely diverse: crossing age groups, a multitude of professions, and worldwide locales in urban, suburban and rural areas. These business owners can be motivated by a variety of lifestyle needs, and often seek contrasting goals (money vs. time, for instance). However, there are common unifying characteristics that band us together - our desire to have a business that supports and meshes with our desired lifestyle. At Solo-E, we have identified effective ways to reach and build relationships with this divergent market - continuously, collaboratively and cooperatively - and we continue to explore and refine our approach to that market.


Solo-E Visitor Profile

Quantitative Data (via Quantcast)

  • 60% female, 40% male

  • 65% are between the ages of 25-54

  • 40% have children

  • 25% have income over US$100K

  • 70% graduated from college

Qualitative Analysis

  • Entrepreneurs visit Solo-E, sign up for our newsletter, follow us on Twitter or Facebook, looking primarily for free information

  • Typical prospect path: views free information of Expert multiple times; clicks through to Expert's website and signs up for newsletter; converts to customer/client. Evidence suggests that they typically have a longer conversion cycle than the typical visitor to a particular Expert's website

  • Example: a coregistration subscriber may take over 12 months to convert to a buyer

  • Conclusions: The best strategy to capture these prospects is continuous visibility through regular submission of free material over a long period of time.

This Market Knows – and Trusts – Solo-E.com

Solo-E.com has earned the credibility to speak directly to this market by consistently providing only high-quality information and resources since 2003. Being solo business owners ourselves, we know the unique challenges -- and the possibilities -- of our target market. We are passionate about the solo entrepreneur lifestyle and supporting the success of the growing solo entrepreneur market -- it's what we at Solo-E.com do best!

  • We are a highly sought-after joint venture partner. We only accept opportunities that fit our niche and that provide significant benefit to Solo-E, either in increased traffic or adding to our subscriber list. Where a JV may not make sense for Solo-E, we offer appropriate opportunities to our Certified Experts.

  • We maintain a significant presence on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, both for the site (Solo-E) and for me, Terri Z (The Solo CEO), as the face of Solo-E.com. Our posts are retweeted often and reach a major solo entrepreneur audience of over 30K.


  • Solo-E Certified Experts get additional media coverage. Reporters and bloggers, including the New York Times Small Business Blog, consistently turn to Solo-E experts to comment on a variety of topics important to solo and small business owners.


  • Solo-E is a large, and growing, website, with over 3000 indexed pages actively bringing in traffic. Search engines, especially Google, love us! Our site is spidered daily by the major search engine bots.

Solo-E.com is uniquely qualified to provide you these benefits – we’re the largest multi-expert website JUST for Solo Entrepreneurs.

So how can we help you?

And, it's a pleasure working with Terri and her team. Thank you."


Here’s a list of the Solo-E Certified Entrepreneur Expert Qualifications


To be certified as a Solo-E.com Expert, you must:
  • Be an online Solo Entrepreneur for at least two years.

  • Provide proven, professional-quality services, training, or products tailored specifically to support the self-employment goals of online solo entrepreneurs.

  • Operate from a law-of-attraction/abundance philosophy, aligned with Solo-E business principles.

  • Solo Entrepreneurs must make up at least 50% of your target market.

  • Submit a resume/bio, specific examples of services, classes and/or products in your area of expertise that you plan to offer, plus two letters of recommendation or testimonials for you and what you do (one from a colleague with whom you have partnered with on a project or other collaborative effort, and one from a client. Testimonials will suffice for the latter.)

  • If you plan to list your Teleclasses, Teleseminars, Telesummits and Webinars, submit proof of your training as a Webinar/Teleclass Leader or equivalent experience, and either an audio or video recording of a recent webinar or teleclass or the link to an upcoming class we can review.

  • If you plan to list classes or products at prices over $200, Solo-E is happy to promote these through a commission arrangement. You must have a way to reliably track referrals from us and provide regular sales and commission updates. Typically, this would be through an affiliate program such as 1ShoppingCart or Infusionsoft.

  • Agree to the Solo-E.com Terms and Conditions for Experts


Once you are certified as a Solo-E Expert

Being certified as a Solo-E Expert means we have validated your expertise, and are ready to begin reviewing the articles, classes and other products you would like to list. We then review EACH item before accepting and publishing the listing.

  • You must submit complete information for each article, class, ebook, etc. that you wish to have listed. This includes a short summary, full descriptions of the classes, times, dates, cost, etc. We will provide you with specific editorial constraints such as links within articles, etc. (Contact us if you'd like the details.)

  • Once you have submitted your article, class or product listing information, we review each item for suitability for Solo-E subscribers and visitors. We may ask for samples of audio, video, workbook chapters, etc. Once approved, we'll get your item on our site as quickly as possible.

The total number of Certified Entrepreneur Experts will be limited, so we can ensure individual attention to each Expert.

Apply now, as applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

How Do I Choose the Right Package For Me?

POPULAR PrestigePlus Marketing Package: A full-featured, throw-it-over-the-wall marketing solution for busy Experts that includes your own Personal Solo-E Virtual Assistant! (Over half of Solo-E Certified Experts choose this option! See testimonials for PrestigePlus) Perfect if you:

  • want to take FULL advantage of all the features we have available
  • create content regularly, but don't want the hassle of posting it all to Solo-E yourself
  • don't have a VA or the time to post everything yourself
  • want to get off to a fast start with Solo-E -- no learning curve
  • have a lot of existing articles, offer ongoing classes and have a full product funnel ranging from free products to customized high-value programs

Prestige Marketing Package: Complete access to all features at one price. Great if you:

  • want all the features and benefits: visibility of your written, audio, and video material and classes
  • create content regularly and are willing to learn how to post your content yourself, or
  • have a VA with time on their hands (we offer comprehensive training materials and personalized assistance to get you or your VA up to speed)

Both packages are available at a (discounted) quarterly rate. (A monthly rate is available upon request, after your initial 3-month commitment.)

No matter what package you choose, we'll help you penetrate the growing online market of Solo Entrepreneurs with our unique focused online marketing capabilities -- affordably and easily!

Now, you may be thinking, “this sounds great, Terri, but how much is it going to cost me?”

First of all, let’s be sure we’re referring to these packages properly: they are an investment. A cost is something you pay out, with no expectation of earning money back. An investment, on the other hand, yields a return.

Now consider this: how much are you investing in your marketing, per month, right now, in terms of time and other resources?

How many hours (or dollars) have you spent submitting articles to dozens of article directories (into what seems like a black hole), figuring out social networking fads (only to have them change almost instantly) and participating in hastily-thrown-together telesummits (only to find you got a measly few dozen subscribers)?

Probably thousands, if you sat down and worked out your hourly rate and the number of hours you’re pouring into marketing, or the $$ you are spending hiring professionals to learn the latest marketing "system".

So the investment I’m asking for here is going to be well worth it:

Value Package Pricing
Prestige
Plus
Prestige
Monthly Pricing Option (available upon request after an initial 3-month commitment) $247/mo. $177/mo.
Save 15% with our Quarterly Pricing Option $627/qtr. $447/qtr.

If your hourly rate is $100 – and you save just 2-3 hours per month, you’re already earning back your investment.

Still not sure whether Solo-E’s marketing packages are for you?

Below, I’ve posted a few of our most Frequently Asked Questions, to help you make this decision:

Q: How do I know I won't be investing my $$ just to be on another site that doesn't generate sufficient traffic to results in leads for me?
A: The biggest difference between Solo-E and "other" sites that promise to market you is the narrowness of our niche: Solo Entrepreneurs who are in it for the lifestyle; and our ability to reach it. We have enjoyed historical traffic growth around 25% per year and continue to work to reach more potential customers for you. You also need to do your part: creating an effective product funnel, consistently sending us quality content, and following up on prospects efficiently. And you can also find resources at Solo-E to help you hone your side of the marketing equation.

Q: How long will it take for me to see results?
A: Typically it takes 3-6 months for the real results to kick in. As you probably know, it takes 5-9 touches for a prospect to take action. But the real answer is that Solo-E is a long-term strategy. Solo-E visitors trust us; it'll take some time to get them to trust you enough to sign up for your newsletter or free class. If you are looking to get immediate signups to your next workshop, this isn't the place. If you are ready to give us consistent content over the long haul, you will see the benefits that our many long-term clients have experienced.

Q: You already have an Expert who specializes in <what I specialize in>. Can I still be an Expert?
A: Absolutely! We don’t believe in exclusivity -- there are people out there who need to learn from you just the way you teach, and others who need to learn the way someone else teaches. There is plenty of room for different approaches, teaching styles, and so on.

Q: Can I list a class that I am also marketing myself and on other sites, or does it have to be exclusive to Solo-E?
A: You can advertise your webinars, teleclasses, telesummites and in-person events anywhere else you want; in fact we encourage that. We don't require or even recommend exclusivity to Solo-E.

Q: Is there a place to list my products?
A: Yes! Ebooks, ecourses, downloadable audio, CDs, videos, DVDs, live and packaged workshops...we have a spot for them all.

Q: How many subscribers are on your mailing list?
A: 5055 (as of May, 2013). We get hundreds of new subscribers monthly and enjoy a historically low unsubscribe rate. We practice email list hygiene (more about this practice) to improve the deliverability of our mailings and the responsiveness of our list. Our weekly newsletters generate a click-thru rate on the high end of typical industry average; our Insiders' Tips newsletters have historically generated double industry average click-thru rate.

Q: But those other webinar/teleclass listing sites have a lot more people on their list...
A: True. Our subscribers are targeted -- only solo entrepreneurs, who are looking specifically for solo business-related support. To quote Jimmy D. Brown in Success Secrets of Online Marketing Superstars, "I'd rather have 500 'eager beavers' who can't wait to read my mailing than 5,000 that won't ever lay eyes on my e-mail messages".

Q: What are you doing to grow your list and get more visitors...so that my stuff gets marketed to more people?
A: We have a continuous SEO program in place, including ongoing keyword research and tweaking, making our website structure more search engine-friendly, maintaining an updated site map both for search engines and for visitors, and much more. We participate in another coregistration program that adds many new subscribers each month, and are invited frequently to participate in joint ventures, which are also effective at adding subcribers. We are investing a lot of resources in social media, and it is proving to be a very effective part of our marketing mix, including semi-automated posting of classes, Experts' blogs and all new articles, ebooks, etc. We've made it very easy for visitors to share our classes and articles on their favorite social media sites! And we'll be staying on top of these and other marketing trends - so you don't have to.




Questions About Coregistration

Q: I've heard a lot of bad things about co-registration. Isn't that a fad? Will it get me in trouble with my email marketing provider?
A: You may have heard about pay-per-subscriber "co-registration" services -- which can deliver poor results and cost a lot of money to get a "real" subscriber. There are also tricks that some co-registration implementations use, like allowing single opt-in (very dangerous) and having boxes pre-checked. We don't operate that way! No pre-checked boxes, and double opt-in is required. As for your email marketing provider, it's up to you to make sure you are in compliance with their terms and conditions. If your provider won't allow coregistration (as Aweber does not), we can suggest alternatives. Click here to read an article about co-registration.

Q: My mailing list software doesn't support double opt-in. Can I still participate in the coreg program?
A: We are more than happy to explore creative options with you. Contact us and we can answer any technical questions before you apply.

Q: So, with the coreg program, I'm recommending your newsletter and you recommend mine. Is that right?
A: It's even better than that...in addition to exposure via Solo-E, everyone who participates recommends the newsletters of all other participants. This can mean tremendous growth for your list.

Testimonials for PrestigePlus

"PrestigePlus -- what a deal! People who know me are well aware of my thrifty persona.  I like a deal! I also like help, particularly where details are concerned.  And I like to promote value when I experience it!

Well, Terri and her trusty Solo-E team have created an opportunity I couldn't pass up...Prestige Plus. This program has really motivated me. Now that I know the efforts that I put into a final edit on an article or an eProduct can be handed off to someone else, I’ve got an interest in making more available.   Items I mentioned in passing miraculously appear on the Solo-E site!  Normally, I have to look for, interview, hire and do some training to have a VA be able to support me.  Not with Prestige Plus.  Kimberly knows it all, and is FAST!  

When I looked at the cost for this service I wasn’t sure that I had understood the offer; it really did seem too good to be true.  So, I wrote and verified that I wasn’t misunderstanding the offer.  Of course, as always, they were very clear in their communications with us. Everything they offered has been delivered and then some!

So, if you’ve been thinking about increasing your internet exposure, building your email list and positioning yourself as an expert now is an excellent time."

"I too signed up for Prestige Plus, and here's why. I do have a VA who helps me with my marketing, but the problem is she's so busy with so many other tasks that getting all my articles, classes, etc. on Solo E has been challenge. Plus, my VA isn't as familiar with Solo-E -- so using someone who already knows this is much more efficient.

I look at it this way, either way I'm paying someone to fully promote me on Solo-E. Why not hire someone who is already familiar with Solo-E so I can get the most out of my membership, who can do it faster and more efficiently, so I can free up my other VA so she can do other tasks for me?"

Solo-E Certified Expert since 2006

"Let me jump on the bandwagon here. I was definitely not utilizing my Solo-E benefits, not by a long shot. Just looking at the number of subscribers to my list from being an Expert kept telling me I really needed to take advantage of everything I was paying for with Solo-E, but I never could find the time to dedicate to it, nor to train my VA on it.

And then Prestige Plus arrive and with it Kimberly – and oh my! Kimberly took all my offerings and articles and got them up and running at Solo-E immediately. But not only that, by doing so, she made me clean up my offerings and update my blog (which my products are offered), which I’d been meaning and wanting and needing to do for months. With Kimberly’s assistance, I had it done in about 20 minutes!

Before I signed up, I also asked for clarification of the benefits I’d get from upgrading to PP, because it almost seemed too easy. And it is! I’ve been a Gold member for a long time now, and that’s been a great investment. Upgrading to PP has already been worth 10 times more than that."
