Welcome to issue #2 of my newsletter. My team and I are just getting started here on Revue and we have plenty to learn to make this the best experience for our readers. If you have recently become a subscriber, please send me a tweet with your thoughts and any suggestions for improvement. Thanks!

What To Expect
This newsletter is going to be the place where I give my readers an inside view into my world, the challenges/struggles Iโ€™m facing, and how Iโ€™m trying to overcome these challenges so that I can achieve my goals.
In other words, if you want to gain insights into all the stuff I donโ€™t share anywhere else, this newsletter is that place.
Welcome to my world! ๐Ÿป
So, with all that said, letโ€™s dive into this weekโ€™s edition by starting off with my top priority this week.
My Top Priority This Week
The activity that is taking the greatest amount of my time is learning how to create effective ad campaigns for my Flowster.app
Iโ€™ve never been one to use advertising much at all; however, now that Iโ€™m a SaaS founder, ignoring ads really isnโ€™t an option for me any more!
Becoming proficient with ads so that we can profitably (and predictably) scale Flowster is going to be a huge challenge for me and Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™m going to make plenty of mistakes.
I will definitely be writing about all my screw ups, so if youโ€™d rather not repeat my mistakes, be sure to subscribe ๐Ÿ‘Š
If youโ€™d like to dig deeper into what I have learned this week, be sure and read the section on advertising tips.
Advertising Tips
If done correctly, advertising can provide a hugely valuable boost to most any company.
It can also be a huge f-ing waste of money if you donโ€™t know what the hell you are going and as of this writing, I would describe my skillset as a 4 out of 10.
In other words, Iโ€™m barely capable of doing much except waste money.
Soโ€ฆhow is a rookie like me going to get from idiot to superstar without breaking the bank?
One experiment at time ๐Ÿ’ช
Hereโ€™s a summary of the methodology that I used for my first 75 experiments:
How I Ran 75+ Experiments (Fast and Cheap)
The experiments you read out above were run over the last 2-3 weeks as I was working my way through a very expensive mastermind group I joined.
Since these experiments were run, I realized something very valuable.
The valuable thing Iโ€™m referring to is this: when you are running your first experiments, focus on ad copy that addresses pain points around the idea of making more money, increasing sales, etcโ€ฆ (getting something) vs cutting costs, increasing efficiency, etcโ€ฆ
Getting something (like increased revenue) is like chocolate. Saving something (like saving money through reduced expenses) is more like brocoliโ€ฆand chocolate sells far better than brocoli!
Be sure to keep that in mind when writing your ad copy in your initial tests.
Interviews
In this section, we share links to shows I have been on as well as shows I have produced on BrightIdeas.co
