FB, Twitter and Google Adwords

Last Update: November 06, 2014

Social Networking and Marketing

So I have been doing more social networking, I was a bit busy doing some changes on my site. My realization is that Facebook connections...males in general (and no offense to our male members here), they seem to want to start a relationship with me. They always start with, can I ask you a question...Lol...well it would be nice if it was regarding something else other than me personally.

Then we have the ones that want to offer 1000 FB follows cheap....I get some of that with Twitter as well. With Twitter its even better 9000 follows for $10.00. It gets to be a bit of an annoyance, but I am sure that is their marketing agenda of course.

Then I signed up for Google Adwords and I forgot that this was a PPC campaign...so with a tight budget and needing to invest, how much is too little and who here has an Adwords campaign going. I would like some feedback on this and how it is working out, and more details on it as well.

I watched the training Kyle had and he was popping in $100.00 a day, or if you can't do that much $5.00 a day, which it seems doesn't do a whole lot for you. I guess I would like to know what kind of turn a round time frame there is and really how it works. Probably can't do it just yet, but looking at if for future reference. I could research this more, but I thought that anyone with first hand experience would be better.

I was also not sure about using Google Adsense and how beneficial that is, I was actually worried about there no click policy from your own site. My cat loves to click the keys on my laptop, which drives me crazy when I am trying to type and get a post done. Lol.

Oh yeah, and how do you get the box around images to disappear again...I lost the info on that. I see it doesn't do it on the blog post here. Is there a plug in that converts all images on the website?

Any thoughts on these topics would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Kim. Re image borders: I just went to Appearance> Theme Options and added:

.size-full, .entry-content img {
border: none;
}

to the custom CCS Styles box. This has removed the borders of images within pages/posts for me.

If you paste it into the CSS box in the themes options it should be fine. If it doesn't do what you want remove it!

I will. I am just trying to be cautious because I have already had one issue with my theme.

Google adwords is not a good format for internet marketers. Better to use Yahoo or Bing for pay per click. What matters more than budget is the actual headline and ad. You can look at this link http://advertise.bingads.microsoft.com/en-us/get-started for Bing information. You can also sign up for Yahoo ads there if you don't already have a Yahoo account.

Well Kimberley.A lot of years ago when I tried a bit of marketing I knew very little,however I did remember some one saying the significance of building a email list.To take a short cut I bought some thing crazy like 100,000 email addresses for 10.00 dollars on gig buck which I could not use because they were are fabricated,so yes it is just a marketing con with some of these offers.

I think adwords has a place in testing out keyword phrases at least. If you word the advert correctly you can dissuade people from actually clicking but you will see how many impressions you had for the keyword phrase.

I've done a bit of adwords work before and one of the key things is to make the ad match the keyword phrase and make the landing page the ad takes them too also very congruent with the ad and search term.

Can be very effective but as you say can be costly but if you do it right and the clicks convert the ROI may be worth it
