I placed two ads on Sourcebottle and had fantastic results. I sold over 20 DIY PR Kits within a matter of hours, as well as had various Sourcebottle users sign up to my PR advice podcast. I highly recommend Sourcebottle advertising to any business wanting to reach marketing and PR professionals and business owners, and I will continue to recommend Sourcebottle to all those that I coach and train in PR.

I regularly advertise on SourceBottle and have consistently found it an effective way to gain exposure for my business and grow my client base. Whenever a Drink Up! email goes out with my ad in it I receive a flurry of new enquiries and Bec constantly tweaks the copy to keep it interesting. Thanks Bec, you and SourceBottle rock!
Bridie Jenner, Bridie's Typing Services www.bridiestypingservices.com
I ran two ads in the Drink Up! alerts for my video production services and received 7 solid leads with a sales potential of approximately $15,000-$20,000. Truly a brilliant result! I'd recommend advertising to anyone with a quality product that can provide some value. Bec has some great advice and really knows her audience.
Josh Hammond, MDOAR Productions www.mdoar.com.au
Just wanted to let you know the SourceBottle ad worked really well! We had more than 100 nominations come through after it went out, from 500 to 642. Great result!
Just wanted to say thank you and to let you know that I got dozens of great enquiries and great leads yesterday and over 340 hits on my website and still getting calls today. Wow! I’m so happy and I’m kicking myself I didn’t advertise with you earlier! You’ll be hearing from me soon as I’m planning to advertise again in the next few months.

We love SourceBottle, not only for Basic Bananas, but also for our clients. If you are after more exposure for your business and have a fabulous product, service or event to promote, I can highly recommend advertising with Sourcebottle. The returns are great, plus their customer service is outstanding. It is so hard to find a great copywriter to write ads that work and Bec Derrington is absolutely brilliant, creative and spot on with her copy.
Franziska Iseli-Hall, co-founder of Basic Bananas www.basicbananas.com.au
I was a bit unsure about how active the list was going to be. After trying it out I can honestly say that if you have the right kind of offer the results will be truly value for money. I've received hundreds of new leads to follow up. Thanks SourceBottle.
Carl Taylor, author of ‘Red Means Go!’ www.carltaylor.com.au
We used a combination of SourceBottle Text ads and Banners to get a 684% return on investment for our ads. That was the second time that we've used SourceBottle and will happily do it again in the future. The copy that Bec came up with was superb and really sold our business well. To me, it's one of the best short-term sales opportunities in the market.
Michael Halligan, founder of www.engagemarketing.com.au and www.theblogdesigner.com.au
I advertised in Drink Up and on SourceBottle and have had huge results. I sold products worth more than $5,000 after taking up three advertisement spots, giving me a massive return on my investment. Source Bottle is a wonderful service for anyone wanting to do their own PR and for anyone wanting to reach quality business leads. I now recommend it to all attendees at my DIY PR Seminars.

As Gen Y would say 'OMG'. The response in less than an hour has been incredible. Thank you.
Steve Allen, www.Webu.com.au
We ran an ad in the SourceBottle alert for our small DIY PR website and got a phenomenal response! We are targeting small businesses and within half an hour of the alert going out we had made 3 sales, got 8 registrations on the site and this was followed by emails and phone calls with enquiries for the rest of the day. We were so thrilled and can't recommend SourceBottle highly enough. The service that we got (with a smile!) and the immediate response we got were amazing. We will definitely be advertising more in future. SourceBottle Rocks!
Jules and Simone, www.handleyourownpr.com.au
I just want to say thanks. Within 10 minutes of the drink alert going out I had 5 sales of my ebook, over 20 sign up for the newsletter and 2 enquiries to advertise on the Shopping Confessions website as well as bloggers wanting to submit work. The traffic that day was amazing. To date this has been the best advertising I have done. A big thank you to the team at SourceBottle. I can't recommend SourceBottle enough. Can't wait for my next drink Alert to go out. I love SourceBottle. Happy Shopping!

Thanks Rebecca – we've had a great response to your ad – You have a genius site!
Jodie Culpin, www.corporate-websolutions.com.au
Best. $300. I've. EVER. Spent... as a comparison, I recently spent $7,454 on a direct mail marketing campaign which generated over 5 weeks the same number of leads this has generated in 1.5 hours. Flabbergasted.
Leela Cosgrove, Strategic Anarchy
We advertised on Source bottle, not really knowing what we would get out of it, but in keeping an open mind, we were willing to give it a go.We advertised over 2 days, in the AM and PM versions of the newsletter, both with amazing results. Total leads to us was 13 over the two days. In terms of ROI, it has been one of the most cost effective lead generation activities we have done. Highly recommend giving it a go.
