    You're the second person that brought that product to my attention. I caught the commercial on TLC a week or two ago and recorded it. Cool idea.

    How is the ad working Pete? Do you have any idea of the kind of traffic it has generated for you yet?

    The publication will go out March 15... I will let you know.

    By the way I was contacted by a VERY LARGE retailer recently. It turns out his wife got one of our cups in a raffle that we contributed products to (a mom/church group) and their 10 month old used it with great success right away. He was so impressed he contacted me about adding the product to their shelves. I don't want to say too much yet in the public forum but I am very thrilled at the opportunity to present this to them. I meet with them next week.

    Pete,

    I like the ad for its simplicity, though I'm concerned that visually it doesn't communicate HOW the cups are different than sippy cups. I can kind of see how it's different in the product shot, but a photo demonstrating its use might be more effective. The use of colors is strong, but the text could be stronger.

    Congratulations on what looks like a great product, though. And best of luck with your marketing efforts. You're off to a strong start.

    Hi Pete, I too was wondering how your ad campaign went. I've got an 18 month son, and this cup is right up our alley.
    We hope it turned out well and that you got the deal with that retailer as well.

    Hi Russell... I have stopped all ads on Both Google and Facebook. They are costing way more than they produce in sales. My fear is that the clicks I am getting and paying for, of course, are not being generated by actual people. I have read about "ad bots" that scour ads like these for whatever reason.

    So, maybe I am getting false clicks or maybe not, no idea how to tell... but the end result is simply that I am paying way more than I am making on the ads.
