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……

The incredibly embarrassing cold sore and how to prevent it

Yep, many of you can prevent a cold sore from surfacing, but you must be on top of it. When you feel that early warning ‘tingle’, you must take an antiviral medication or apply a good remedy right at the stage or you’re sunk.  Take it from my friend, Katie Holmes.

Once it starts to erupt (redness, a small bump, swelling, etc.), the sooner you address it, the better success you’ll have to keep it smaller and heal faster.  Results can vary among individuals how well this will work, but also a factor is the severity of the current infection.  Super-extraordinary stress and fatigue, for instance, can trigger a more severe infection.

There are FDA-approved medications available, but for those who prefer to go the more natural route, there are options people swear by.  Taking lysine supplements is a popular option. You’d be suprised by what some ‘natural’ enthusiasts apply – ear wax!  I’ve never been clear if it’s important that it’s yours or can be from a ‘donor’, LOL.

What works great for one may not for another, but a good place to start is to research consumer reviews.

Placing a Craigs List Ad? Beware of These Responses

I’ve successfully sold several things on Craig’s List, but every single time, I’ve also received responses from scammers.  How do I know?  Because the initial response is this or something similar:

  • “is the item still available?” or worse, “Is the items still available?”
  • “I’m interested.”

These are canned inquiries. “Item”?  Who talks like that? I don’t. Do you?  A more legit inquiry to an ad will likely include the name of what’s being sold:

  • “I’m interested in the bedroom set, is it still available?”
  • “Is the futon still for sale?”
  • “Do you still have the microwave available? I’ll give you $50.”

A scammer is not paying attention to what is being sold.  He or she is responding to many ads, constantly, in order to increase their chances of success. They won’t even bother typing a specific item name, it would take too long. Much quicker just to copy and paste, paste, paste, paste.

Information is power!

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.
