Whether you spend it on google ads, Facebook ads, solo ads, banner ads, or whatever the heck you want to try and spend it on.....don't.
It will be gone faster than you could ever imagine.
Simply because unless you already know what works, your ad will most likely fail.
It takes practice to get your headline right, your banner perfect, your copy right, and your targeting.
There's a 99% chance your hundred dollars will *poof* into thin air.
You might get a few leads but hardly anything worth while.
Even if you had $1,000.
There's lots of testing needed in order to see if an advertising platform works.
Think if it like when you have an old fashion brick and mortar business, you have to pay for certain things right in the beginning:
- and so much more.
You'll lose money before you start making your first sale. Then you have to make many sales to recoup that loss.
If a hundred $100 could do much, then it wouldn't be hard to live the lifestyle.
But those who know, they know that even a few thousand is needed in order to test.
Here's what you can do with your $100 instead.
- Keep it. Save it up and up until you have a good amount to play with. $1,000 or more. $5,000 will keep you comfortable.
Back when I would play roulette all the time, I would put $1,000 into the machine. Even though I was playing on a $0.50 betting table.
This allowed me not to stress when I went down $400.
Do you think you'd feel different losing $400 out of $500 than you would from $1000?
- Buy a book. There's many great books about many topics out there. Read them, study them, and read them again while you're saving up your marketing budget.
If you're learning about copywriting, you can practice your headline writing by making posts in forums.
With $100, you could buy a few books.
- Buy a Udemy course. There's many courses for cheap on there and you can always gain more knowledge. Knowledge truly is power.
- Buy a stranger a lunch. Very few people actually ever do this, but it leaves you with an amazing feeling when you do. If you've never done it, try it. Also, try to do it without them knowing. If you see a nice couple in the place, ask the waiter if you could buy them drinks or their dinner but not to mention who did it.
- The list goes on. There's so many things you can do with your $100. Get creative. Think of it like it's $100 that you can't wait to make someone's day with or however you want to think of it as. Either way, don't put it towards marketing if you think some miracle is going to happen and you're going to strike it big.
