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……

Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 Replacing Entourage with Outlook

This news was released last year, but I, and perhaps you, are just hearing it for the first time.   Here’s the August 2009 article I found on MacWorld. Click Here.

The pain of a canker sore can be excruciating.  This natural-based topical remedy will help resolve it within hours to a few days. Canker Sores Begone™

Short Answer: Cold Sore vs Canker Sore. What’s the Difference?

Cold sores erupt outside the mouth

On the lips, around the mouth, in the nose area, and for some, the face, hands, chest, arms, fingers.  Yep, they’re caused by herpes simplex I, a virus that more people than not have in their bodies whether or not they’ve had or ever will have an outbreak.  The virus is often transmitted in early childhood by receiving a kiss, or sharing eating utensils or a beverage with a person who has an active outbreak.

Canker sores only appear inside the mouth

The medical literature says it’s not a herpes simplex infection. I question that.  My own canker sore experience, and that of the tens of thousands of repeat customers who use Canker Sores Begone™ (containing herbs known for their anti-viral properties) find the triggers for a canker sore are the same as for a cold sore: fatigue, stress, illness, skin trauma around or in the mouth (ie dental procedure, permanent cosmetic enhancement, an abrasion).  The exceptions:  over-exposure to the sun can trigger a cold sore but not a canker sore.  The literature is probably correct about canker sores triggered by acidic food.  For instance, acidic food-caused cankers do not respond to Canker Sores Begone™. 

The Quick and Dirty

Cold Sores Begone™ prevents a cold sore eruption when applied at the first symptom.
Canker Sores Begone™ has a healing effect anytime within the first day of application to a few days later-individual experiences vary.

The Holidays are ripe for a cold sore or canker sore

All the stress and fatigue that often goes along with the Holidays commonly causes a cold sore or canker sore for those prone to them.  The last thing you want now is a big, honking cold sore displayed prominently around the month.   Nor do you want the excruciating pain of a canker sore in the mouth to make eating, drinking or talking almost impossible.  Especially eating.  No, wait – drinking.  Hmmm-make that talking.  Aw geez – ALL of it!

Cold Sores Begone® will prevent that little cold sore of yours from erupting.  Yep. A few dabs at that dreaded tingling feeling, the infection is aborted, no cold sore, good to go.

Canker Sores Begone®, for most folks, heals the ulceration within 24 hours to a few short days.

No worries.  Safe for even small children, non-toxic, herbal topical formulation.  Endorsed by PREVENTION Magazine, no less.
