I Have to Take Some Time to Stop and Think
This last week has been some of the most intense, thought-provoking, number crunching days since I have been at Wealthy Affiliate.
I started at Wealthy Affiliate on January 4th, of this year, so I have been here for nearly 4 months now.
I finished my Certification training in February, I believe, and immediately went on to the Bootcamp training. I am currently in Phase 7, Lesson 3.
I started my first PPC campaigns last Friday and I have approximately 20 PPC ads running for 9 days now.
The problem is that my head hurts from all the data. I am an engineer and am used to analyzing data but this is all so new to me.
Have you ever been in a situation where you were so immersed in training or information that it just started clouding your mind and your judgment and you had to take a step back so you could see the big picture?
This is where I am right now.
I feel slightly bad because I have been spending so much time following the Bootcamp training and creating different variations of ads and analyzing the data that I have only created one article for my website this week, but that's ok.
Sometimes we need to stop, breath, take a break so we can re-gather our thoughts.
I have currently shut down a few ads, deleted about 1/3 of them that showed no signs of activity and have reduced my maximum daily out-of-pocket budget so that I am not losing any significant money.
I need to make some organizational changes to my website, especially some pages with high bounce rates, and I need to re-think things.
I feel like I need to put the Bootcamp training on hold and not pursue the PPC campaigns further until I get some more experience and advice.
It's like I'm peering into the fog right now and I need to get up higher where I can see better and clear my mind.
Any thoughts and/or advice is welcomed here.
