There can be many reasons as to why your not making money. To me, It doesnt make any sense to arbitrarily pick 20,000 dollars as a number that you want to make....
Advertising will only get you so much. I think the number was posted somewhere as to what kind of return you acually get from it. But non the less it was low, really low.
To say your gonna do free work to get work is almost a Yogiberaism....
not to mention basically a crap shoot.
Um, I didn't arbitrarily pick 20K out of the sky. I also did not say what our advertising returns are, but they most definitely are not low. I have tried a lot of different avenues that didn't give a good return but that is how you learn what works. I have specific financial goals and 20K MORE per month is is the next acheivable step toward reaching them, nor did I say we're loosing money. I said we could be more efficient and could be making more profit with what we are already spending. I am running a business, not just doing a good job and hoping things will work out. That is only a part of the whole picture You can be the best electrician in the universe but unless you have specific financial goals and know that you are charging enough to cover your expenses AND make a profit you are not running a business. You are a self employed person and can never make more than you can earn with just your own time. (which is perfectly fine- btw). You can be sooooo wonderful, and the busiest guy in town, but if you aren't making enough to pay all your bills and acheive your goals then you have a hobby, not a business.
Goals are much more acheivable if you work backwards from what you need and want to acheive and then figure out to HOW you will accomplish them.
