I’m a big rap fan.
A white boy from a small town in Michigan…would you really expect anything less?
I have also been an online entrepreneur since 2010.
So how in the Hell does that have to do with business, Adam?
Are you down there drinking those dollar beers on the Las Vegas strip?
Ah no…net yet, but a fantastic idea.
Thank You Mark Zuckerberg!
I have been using Facebook advertising for 3+ years to grow my business. It has been a love/hate relationship. It took me 6 months to actually start making money with Facebook — I is a slow learner, I guess.
When I got started I was always hesitant on using “paid traffic” as I was more of a start a blog and the people will come…eventually.
I was cheap…
Still a huge fan of using a blog, however, using both of them is like pouring gasoline on the fire. Now that I have paid traffic somewhat figured out, it’s like a machine. I know for every $1 I put into it, I will get $xx in return.
It’s a predictable system, where I know how much revenue I can bring in each and every month. Actually, I can somewhat accurately predict how much revenue I’ll bring in each day. That is extremely powerful.
I now love paid traffic. And I see why all the veteran marketers talked about it years ago when I got started.
Ya know, back when I was ignorant.
Shattering My Limiting Beliefs
I have never spent $100 a day on Facebook ads.
I was scared to spend that much. I had to get out of my own way…again. This has proven to be a common problem for me. For some reason, I just like to over complicate things.
Would I generate a positive ROI?
What if the system doesn’t work?
What is I lose all my money?
If limiting beliefs were a currency — I’d be rich!
The first time I spent $100 in a day on Facebook advertising was August 17th — about a month ago.
Since then, I have spent $8,974.92 in 31 days — about $289 per day.
The other day, I spent close to $500 in a SINGLE day with Mark Zuckerberg and company.
A month ago I was scared to spend $100 in a day.
Now I am spending 3 times that, everyday.
The Experts Said it Couldn’t Be Done
Legend has it, the human body could not run a sub 4 minute mile. It was dangerous and impossible.
In 1954, an English man by the name of Roger Bannister ran the first sub 4 minute mile at 3:59.4. As a part of his training, Roger visualized the achievement in order to create a sense of certainty in both his mind and body. See my blog post about the power of visualizations here.
Six weeks later someone else had ran a sub 4 minute mile. Thirteen months later, an additional three runners broke the 4 minute mile.
Roger Bannister shattered anyone’s perception that it couldn’t be done or it was impossible. Now a sub 4 minute mile is almost routine for runners.
Scared Money Don’t Make No Money
Now how does this all relate to business and a rapper from Atlanta?
Well, there is a rapper named Young Jeezy. Not sure what happened to him as I haven’t heard much about him in the last few years.
He had a song that came out in 2008 or 2009 I always listened to. It’s a song I still listen to this day called Scared Money Don’t Make No Money.
You can listen to the song below (adult language)
Now, I have been listening to this song more and more lately.
In fact, when I am launching my Facebook ads I have this one on repeat to remind myself — it takes money to make money. Also, to remind me that I can’t be scared to spend money as I have a proven system in place that consistently returns me $3.21 for ever dollar I spend.
You might think it is weird or just plain silly (I ain’t mad at cha), but this song has been a big reason for my success with Shopify and Facebook advertising.
It helped me push through my limiting beliefs.
It’s how I am profiting $400 each & everyday using Facebook.
So to Mark Zuckerberg and Young Jeezy — thank YOU!
