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. 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……
So, if you want to know the results, you’ll just have to sign up for her newsletter! www.SarahStarr.com
