    I been in IM for over 10 years, from time to time I get stuck in a rut. Where projects are not working out. Just wondering if anyone else ever experienced it.

    Ruts come with almost every aspect of life if you allow yourself to get stuck in them. So yeah its happened, just have to pick it up and move on I guess.

    To locobob:

    Analyze your campaigns and find out WHY things are not working out. If you DON'T know why things haven't been working out, then you should start tracking hits and clicks.

    If things are still not working out, then try something else, but it is important for you to at least give your current campaigns 2 - 3 months. How many different projects/campaigns are you currently running? Maybe you are running too many - and as a result, you are spreading yourself too thin to be able to give enough time and effort to any one particular project.

    @wizgizmo Sound advice. Im currently out of the rut. Was just curious if other have experience the same. My main problem was I was spreading myself thin. So I focused on projects that had the best ratio return vs work.
