I love to answer you this question since I just had some training on this, and it worth reading to all who attempt to answer your question as well, since we all could learn from this.
This Will be a little long, But I'm taking my time to do this not just for you but others, so here we go.

Here's how it works.
================

You submit your ad to a Solo Ad Vendor / Seller and he or she sends your ad out to a Subscriber list (email marketing list).
If your Solo Ad is well written and compelling, you should immediately start getting a flow of optins and people joining your own email marketing list or autoresponder. The Vendor may or may not provide you with some type of tracking for your Solo Ad stats.

Solo Ad Advantages
=================

Solo Ads are effective for promoting affiliate marketing links, online business opportunities and MLM (business models that are often banned by Facebook or Twitter)
It's excellent target marketing as your Solo Ad gets sent to a subscriber list - people who have agreed to receive marketing promotions. The list recipients are involved in affiliate marketing themselves and are motivated as they may earn credits for viewing the ads in exchange for agreeing to receive email promotions.
Usually there are few limits on the size of your Solo Ad
Warm and receptive market as people who receive the solo ads have agreed to and are expecting to receive various marketing promotions.
Easy to Track optins to test your ad, your marketing campaign and the list

Solo Ad Disadvantages
==================

There are actually NO disadvantages to the practice of Solo Ads, the disadvantages are solely related to the honesty and reliability of the VENDOR / SELLER of the Solo Ads.

Here's what to watch out for when evaluating Solo Advertising Vendors.

1. If the Vendor insists that you use ONLY their Capture Page, and not one of your own, be cautious.
Reason: Some vendors require you use their Contact page so they have complete control and can "inject" the lead form with bot traffic.
This makes you think you are getting a large number of optins but ou can't tell the source or the type of traffic, you just know you are getting a lot of leads / optins. While initially you may be impressed with the optin rate, you eventually try to contact those people and your fears are confirmed, they are fake, or the trend is consistent that a large number of the leads state they never signed up for anything. In the case where a login is required, you may notice that the lead never logs in, very strange.
Unscrupulous vendors use robotic software programs that have Auto Form Fill functions and that can vary the IP, so it seems that the leads are coming from different computer and parts of the world. The fact that these are robotic software programs means they can churn out unlimited "leads" and "optins" to unknowing, trusting buyers.

2. If there is no way to get on the list of the Vendor / Seller to actually see and receive your Solo Ads and those ads of other marketers, be skeptical.
Reason: If the Vendor has a list of subscribers there should be no reason why you cannot subscribe to that list to get a confirmation or verification of your Solo Ad as a recipient.

3. If the Vendor / Seller won't allow you to use your own 3rd party tracking software, ask questions.
Without your own 3rd party, unbiased tracker, you have no choice but to trust that what they reveal is truthful.
Using your own good quality tracker program can reveal to you referral source, IP, time on page, exit times and more. extremely useful data that can reveal REAL traffic from FAKE traffic.

4. If the Refund Policy Guarantees Conversion or you don't pay, ask questions and read the fine print.
Reason: Sketchy vendors use words like 100% Risk Free to gain your trust and ease your worry. They know you are busy and most people don't take the time to read Terms and Conditions. If you take the time to read the Refund Policy who will often find there are conditions or a cancellation fee, or you could unintentionally violate their terms making your refund null and void.

You have a clear Idea about Solo's not

Yep. A lot of solo is just scamming people so with what I know, I have to be on your list as to see my ads really going out.
And when you ask most of them, they actually don't want you on their list, that tell you something right away.

250 in the responder no sales and 1 or 2 clicks per mailing. Udemi .40 per click. Around 900 clicks. About done.

Udimi is pretty expensive at 40 to 50 cents per email. Would cost up tp $5000 to send to just 10,000.

They charge by click not by email. Had good results but just worried about the quality of the results.

40.00 gets you 100 to 115 actual clicks to your opt-in page. Got around 30% signup to my email list. Comes out to a little over $1 per email address.

Solo ads will not fetch you good results unless you have your email sequences ready and you regularly send emails. Buying just 100 clicks and expecting sales is never gonna happen.

There is a solo ads strategy. I have mentioned that in detail in one of my recent articles. Feel free to read it.

Thanks. I used 10 dollar solo ads and got 6 signups for WA but none of them even filled out a profile.

$10 falls under mid reliable category. It is marginally better than the countless single solo ads provider on FB.
Also, getting once is not sufficient. If you don't have email sequences ready for at least 30 days, solo ads is not going to be beneficial.

Are you using the functionality of sending the messages automatically in WA? If you could get each of these 6 people to at least create a profile, you would get $6.

Also, I hope you have collected their email ids before sending them to WA signup page. Do keep sending them emails till either they signup or ask you to buzz off. :)

I've mentioned this before, quite a while ago actually, the fact that WA gets the email address of visitors and not the member (us).
The retort to that is the $1 credit if you can get visitors to fill out their profiles at least.
Obviously the way to get them ourselves as you say is to set up a bridge page with a follow up responder sequence, that's also apt when trying to make the most out of ads as one time hits rarely work.
Good info Pravin!
