So last week, I wrote about how I was changing my paid traffic method, from Facebook ads, to GDN and why. I have spentall my spare time for the last 2 weeks learning everything I could about GDN until I got to the point where I was ready to start setting up my ad.
Being brand new to it I wasn’t 100% confident about what I was doing, but this didn’t matter because I found a free call help line which has dedicated staff to help you. “Awesome” I thought until I got on the phone to the lady.
She informed me in no uncertain terms that in order to get anything out of GDN in my niche I would need to be spending at least $20 a day!
One of my main reasons from giving GDN a go was that you can start out from waaaaay less that. That is what I had learnt anyway. So budget at the moment is $100 a month which equates to about $3 a day. $20 a day is $620 a month.
You can see my dilemma!
Now I’m not just going to take this woman’s word as gospel as I have information from a very reliable source that you can start with a lot less.
However, I am acutely aware that all this time I’m learning about this, I am not actually doing any paid advertising. I need to be doing paid advertising to move my business forward.
So I made the decision to get a Facebook ad up and running for now, which I did this week. I’ve added a few more subscribers to my list so it working!
When I have the time ad the finds to investigate this more I will, because I think GDN is a really effective way of paid advertising. I am considering trying it out in a less competitive niche just to get the hang of it. But that’s another story for another day.
Also I have no doubt that the time will come when my monthly budget is $600+ a month and I’ll crack on with it then too! I’m not dismissing it completely, just putting it on the back burner for now.
I’ve had a few comments since writing last week’s blog from people saying they were going to look into GDN since reading my post, so I would love to hear what anyone else’s experiences are of GDN. Please do get in touch and let me know.
Thats it from me today,
Bye for Now 🙂
