I suppose that it is when you spend time and budget on paid campaign such as Facebook ads or GG adwords and do not know that it is helpful to your business goals or not.

    I have lost a lot of money through PPC before, but that is all a part of the growing process. Even some of those that make 6~7 figures per year don't get it right the first time. It is all trial and error with PPC so don't be afraid to make mistakes.

    For me personally though, my biggest mistake was not acting on my first impulse. I tend to overthink things and not finish projects because of that negative voice in the back of my mind... You know, that devil on your shoulder. I just tend to stick with what I know. When I have a great idea, I am always 2nd to the finish line because I've sat around thinking too much without taking action.

    Contrary to Bran's reply, my worst mistake was acting on impulse. I had an awesome offer from some unscrupulous SEO firm in India and it sounded so damn awesome I took the initial bait.

    I was conned, and I money somewhere in the lower tier of four figures (dollars). Sure, it wasn't big money, but I was paying off student loans and was a fresh grad working on a startup. A thousand dollars is already big amount in my country too. It sucked and I had to close up

    Regardless though it was all worth it. Took a copywriting job thanks to my journalism experience in a legit SEO firm. Still learning from the whole experience, but the lessons are worth it.

    Hi,

    It's lovely to hear your experiences. Somehow, impulse is good for creativity, it is new, fresh but risky of course. I think it is better for us to determine the right moment that you can take risk and when we should go forward step by step.

    For me, it's trying to do too many things at once. I was all over the place and ended up confusing myself!

    IMO going with Instagram sometimes would be more fruitful even after Facebook and GG.
