So how did our advertisers do in the last issue of WebBuds?
Well, folks like Jack Martire of ClearVision Hawaii <http://www.clearvisionhawaii.com>
continue to report great results, while others aren't receiving so much
as a nibble. I guess WebBuds is mirroring life in general: some things
are hot, some things are not, and hot or cold, our successes (and failures)
seem to have as much with where we are as people/businesses as they
do with the creative ways we market our particular products and services.
That's my two cents.
What do the folks who advertised in the last issue of WebBuds think?
I wrote all of them and here are a few comments from those who wrote
I had four replies and all four bought my book "The Just-In-Case
Food Pantry: A Common Sense Guide for Y2K or Any Other Emergency".
I'm pleased with the results as it seems that for each one person who
buys it from a source such as this, it leads to several additional sales
through Amazon.com for their friends and neighbors.

I haven't received much response. About one or two inquiries each time.
I then either emailed more information or mailed them a packet. I had
no subsequent replies. The frustrating truth.

I had planned to advertise in WebBuds 2, but found that the deadline
was already passed. Thanks for giving us that free plug in your feedback
letter [for WebBuds 1] <http://www.nhne.com/webbuds/webbuds0001f.html>.
As a result of that, we received an additional 6 inquiries. It's obvious
that we have a product that appeals to people, so we plan to place more
Truthfully, I didn't receive so much as one hit to my site as a result
of posting my ad. Still, it's only the first time I posted an ad on
the list, so not getting any hits doesn't mean much. I realize Web services
aren't commonly found on a list of this type, so I'm willing to try

[My] response: there was none. I guess people who read the WebBuds just
aren't interested. Good luck to all of you who do find it productive.

I should let you know that the service ECA Space Desgn Pty Ltd provides
has only been implemented by word-of-mouth so far. It is a radical change
from normal practice to have feedback from a Net advert because, for
most, a new home is one of, if not the THE, major investment in life.
So I know it is a lot to ask that people should use the net for this
purpose. Hence I have no expectations, I just keep trying in case someone
needs help in say, a remote location where access to professional help
is not possible.
So as you have gathered by now, my response from the current ad is zero.

Thanks, David, for the opportunity to give feedback again on WebBuds.
Unfortunately, I again did not have any calls or e-mails from my ads
regarding the Chironic Healing Workshop. However, they say three is
the magic number, so run my ad again for the Chironic Healing Workshop
to be held November 3, 4, & 5 in Scottsdale, AZ.

Please put my same ad in WebBuds one more time. I have no way to measure
who is visiting my website from this particular ad, although we are
recording more and more hits all the time. My guess is that some WebBuds
are visiting our site. Thanks for providing this service!
