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……

Fortune Hi-Tech reps-you were meant to be here instead

As a network marketer myself, my heart goes out to you.  But I bring good news.

I belong to a global shopping network who’s founder has dotted every ‘i’ and crossed every ‘T’ to ensure it will be here for the long term.  No autoships, no joining or website fees.

I’m simply re-directing my everyday expenses, such as groceries, gas, clothing, travel, home maintenance supplies, pet care and more to retailers partnered with the network. And it doesn’t cost me more to do that, it saves me money.

There’s nothing like this out there that can and is helping consumers and businesses.  I get particular satisfaction as I see small and medium size businesses grow in their communities due to their partnership in the network.

This network offers 10 ways to earn money.  The following is but one of them.

Email me at financialworriesbegone@gmail.com for more information. I can, and want, to help you achieve what we all want, financial security.

Chronic Nose Bleeds – Finally Found a Solution

So I wasn't the first person with the tampax idea.
So I wasn’t the first person with the tampax idea.

I don’t recall ever having a bloody nose until five years ago.  I would bend over to tie my shoe lace or attach my dog’s leash to his collar, and blood would pour. At first, it would happen every few days, then every day, then several times a day.  Staining clothes, pillow cases, carpet, the embarrassment of when it happened in public.  Each occurrence took 30 minutes to stop.  Day after day for three months.  Then nothing. No sign of a bloody nose for five or six months, then it would start again for a few months.

I had my nose cauterized three times, didn’t work.  I didn’t blow my nose as recommended, I cleaned out my nasal passages with a netti pot and salt water, I placed Vaseline in my nose to keep in moistened.  Read about certain herbs, all failed.  I dangled my keys on the back of my neck (a folk remedy suggested by a neighbor).  Nope.

So for the past 5 years, several months off and on during the course of the year, my nose bled like there was no tomorrow. Then, I found a website with the solution, taking a capsule of Cool Cayenne and a Vitamin C with bioflavinoids once a day. The nose bleeds slowed to a stop over the next few days until it stopped altogether.  Occasionally, there were recurrences but very minor .  It’s been 10 months, can’t believe what a life saver it has been.  Last week, I was lazy and didn’t take the supplements for five days, then my nose started to pour like before.

Here’s the website I came across.  If you suffer with the same problem, you must give this a try.  If you read the comments below the article, some people needed to take two doses of each a day to reach success.  BTW, the Cool Cayenne has never irritated by stomach.

Most any health food store or vitamin supplement website will carry the Cool Cayenne and the Vitamin C with bioflavonoids.
