What do you think is the best way to advertise your business or affiliate websites??

I have done so much advertising online that I feel like it is wasting my time. I also feel that there are so many people posting "scams" or lying about how much they make and so forth. Honestly ladies, what and where did you advertise that brought in more referrals?

  • I have looked at twitter but to be honest, it looked more confusing then anything else I tried. How would I get people to be a follower and such?

  • Online advertising just doesn't do a heck of a lot. Still do some of it to keep your name out there. When I do my online advertising it's mostly done on Craigslist, or I update my myspace page, or post on the local momslikeme.com site. But I get customers and recruits mostly local between postcards, wondow decals, logo shirts, events and a free classified ads in smaller free newspapers!

  • I was going to say Facebook. I sell Thirty-One Gifts and my up-line director advertises there. I'm not sure but I think she pays per "click" - again, I'm not sure you could check it out.

    For me personally, I like to have something in front of me to read and then go to the website. You could go to vistaprint.com and get some free postcards or business cards w/ your info. Leave those everywhere. Good luck to you.
