Making Money

Postby Malcolm Ferrie » Tue Sep 06, 2016 8:11 am

These are the last 3 adverts I made for facebook groups, I have only just today advertised the Christmas tree decorations and within the 1st hour, I have 8 orders. I purchased a cracking piece of software called Ninja, It's for use on Facebook. You can target the groups you are looking to sell to. For example :- You burn photo's of pets onto wood. In ninja your keywords would be pets, dogs, cats, horses and it will bring up all the groups in your country that use one of your keywords and with the click of the mouse, It will even send a request to every group for you to join them. It's worth the investment.

It's like putting an advert in your local paper, A single add will bring in next to no business, Advertisers will tell you, You need at least 10 adverts before you start to see a return. If your going to advertise on Facebook, Make it a weekly event as some sites only allow businesses to post once a week. But keep doing it and at different times of the day and evening. People will get used to seeing your name and when they are looking for something, Your name will be in their head. Good luck

Here's one i did today,
I mentioned earlier on another post the benefits of using acrylic paint on 3mm acrylic mirror,
So you engrave your design on the rear of the mirror, Good clean with a damp cloth, A thick coating of black acrylic paint, don't be too particular with applying the paint because what goes on the grey coating on the back will not be seen from the front, So slabber it on, And boy, does your engraving stand out.

How does this one look :-
