Twitter advertising found NOT successful by this expert marketer

I found Sarah Staar through her ad for a free webinar on affiliate marketing, which I’ve been interested in, to transition from the cycler/matrix online opportunities that have a high failure rate.search  She’s a true online expert with up-to-date, highly useful advice, techniques, and how-to’s.  If you’re a marketer, among all the ‘experts’ to follow, she’s a worthy one.  www.SarahStarr.com.

I’ve been in business for myself for 25 years and most of that time has been running sales/distribution for 2 remedies I created years ago that’s sold in the natural products industry, www.ColdSoresBegone.com and www.CankerSoresBegone.com, both online and in health food stores (i.e. Sprouts Farmers Market).

In all this time, by far, the largest expense I’ve had has been unsuccessful advertising.  You can understand then why I’m so grateful to have found Sarah’s post about Twitter advertising, since I have been considering it.

The following is an excerpt from her recent newsletter:

Advertising on Twitter
Whilst I was in America one of the buzzes was about advertising on Twitter, but I couldn’t find anybody actually making money through twitter advertising.

Now the interesting thing is Back in 2009 the buzz was all about free traffic from Twitter. Every seminar you went to there was always somebody selling some sort of software to automatically get you tons of traffic using Twitter.

I remember attending one of these events, taking loads of notes rushing home and purchasing the Twitter software, and then I went out and purchased 5000 Twitter accounts.

To cut a long story short, yes it did generate an absolute ton of traffic however nobody bought anything and it all ended up being a big waste of my time and money…..

Last week I was going through my notes which I took whilst in America and I remembered that Twitter advertising thing that people are talking about.

So Monday I set up a Twitter advertising campaign just really to see what would happen.

So far my results have not been great, I’ve been sending the traffic directly to one of my squeeze pages. It’s been costing me around $10-$15 person that joins my email list which is mega expensive, and so far no one’s bought anything.

I will carry on my testing for another week and try and tweak a few things to see if I can make Twitter advertising work.

I will let you know my results next week. But for the time being……

My primary business expenses, $65K/yr vs my online business-NONE!

Update 3/23/15:  This program discussed below has ended.

I believe nothing we experience is an accident, that everything is a lesson serving the growth of our body, mind and spirit.

Yet, I’m feeling regret that my business of 20 years, Cold Sores Begone Stick™ and Canker Sores Begone Stick™, with all its ups and downs, has been extremely expensive to run for this solo entrepreneur – this past year, an out-of-pocket $65,000. I don’t think I can put a price on what it’s cost me in stress and even fear when I’ve been thrown curves I wasn’t sure I could overcome.

I want a greater sense of financial security now that I’m an older boomer living in the new economy so I’m operating an additional business, one that’s online requiring 1-2 hours a day. It’s bringing in a residual income that will increase during the next 6-12 months that will far exceed what my primary business has ever provided.  The operational expense?  Zero.  There’s an $11.50 monthly membership fee that was almost immediately covered within the first month with my first referral provided by the team I’m on.  I’m just copying and pasting a ready-made ad that contains my personal affiliate link on niche Facebook groups throughout the day. People who resonate with the benefits offered sign up under me, and that’s all there is to it.

Here’s a 10 minute video that explains the compensation plan and a little about what the business is about.

If this is something you’d like to explore more or start now, take a look at the All In One Profits website.  DON’T join directly on that website, however, you won’t receive perks and support that you’d receive joining through our team.  Instead, just start with going to our team Facebook group and click on JOIN.  You’ll probably be approved within a few minutes. Then you can post that you want more info or  you want to start immediately.   http://www.allinoneprofits.com/8v3

The online business is growing fairly quickly and I find myself tempted to sell my stressful primary business and just run this online business that only requires a part-time effort.  I’m not quite ready to do that yet, but I see that if I choose to keep it, it will because I WANT to, not because I HAVE to.

I’m not trying to hustle you to say I recommend this particular online business I’m in. There’s a plethora of them out there. This one is a trusted, long-standing, and stable system.

Either I or another team member will provide all the help and support you need getting started and throughout.

If this isn’t for you, please find another source of income that is if you want some level of financial security. We’re in a different world now, it’s necessary.
