This is due to the fact that major brands spend enormous amounts of money on ads during this period and my little $10 per ad per day just doesn't get a look in. At that point I decided to turn my ads off for a month until I was back at work mid January.
Now me being me, after Christmas I started thinking about my ads again. It was nothing other than a gut feeling that went like this, "Maybe I should try an ad". Remember I'd been told by a number of people that mid January was the time to restart. I knew, and remembered that, but I don't always do what I'm told (and you'll notice this theme if you follow this blog). Really???
So, I set up an ad, and I got two workshop bookings within hours.
It’s now 12 days later and I have had 27 workshop bookings and several paint orders.
The BIG lesson here for me is, ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR GUT.
If I had held off until mid January to restart my ads, I would have had significantly less revenue to date for January.
Question: What success have you had after following your gut?
