Created by Bryan Winters, Cash Blurbs is marketing product that offers the chance for your ads to be shared on social media in exchange for you doing the same.
What is the product?
Honestly, Cash Blurbs is unlike anything that I’ve ever really looked at and the pros and cons become instantly apparent when looking at the structure. Essentially users place ads on Cash Blurbs, but in order to do so you have to share an existing advert through Twitter or Facebook. What his means though is that others should in turn be sharing your adverts through their social media accounts. Bryan Winters says that this can allow your adverts to go viral and ultimately generate a huge number of sales. This is based on a lot of “if’s” though which I personally find off putting. If you wish to monetise Cash Blurbs further you can sign up to become an affiliate of theirs whereby you receive referral fees for referring new users.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
There are two levels of access to Cash Blurbs. The first is free although this restricts you to posting one advert per day. The alternative is to sign up as an Unlimited member which allows you to post 72 adverts per day. This costs $7 for a trial period of 15 days and then $20 per month after this. There is a 60 day money back guarantee in place too. In terms of how much you can make, there are no claims made and given that Cash Blurbs is fundamentally a traffic generation tool, it is difficult to gauge.
Does the product provide value for money?
I think the free trial represents excellent value but I am less convinced about the paid service.
There are two immediate problems that jumped out at me when reviewing Cash Blurbs. The first and most important is that there is no guarantee that adverts are going to be sent to a “live account”. Secondly is that if your advert isn’t posted to social media, I can’t see the Cash Blurbs ad really generating any significant traffic.
I am loathe to discount Cash Blurbs entirely though as I believe there is some potential here. Personally I’d give the free service a go for a month and then make a decision from there.
