    the instant response from the market can really mess with your dopamine

    I suppose it's the matter of time and success until you get desensitized and you can get back to your normal work routine

    I think this is correct. I've always had the plan to start some more seo project but, It's been only media buying even at the time I was losing big.

    Buying is the easy part. The hard part is getting a return on ad spend. :D

    I knew a guy that made a mistake in a media buying platform and cost his company $10K in a few minutes. And this was not a company that could afford to lose $10K. I'm sure that wasn't very addicting!

    That’s sad to hear: I’ve heard of companies spending a lot of money of the wrong advertising and now making any profit

    You need a lot of cash to gamble.
    I'm pretty sure I'll never go into that path.

    No, you just need $5-10K to test different offers & ads and get profitable. It's not typical but if you have analytical skills then even $1K to test low payout offers and find a profitable one

    It's addictive (I mean fun) because of instant results. You don't have to wait to build audience or do SEO. It's just, target right audience & build ads. Done, enjoy instant results

    Oh I fully agree! I been doing media buying for over a decade plus to generate revenue via cpm style advertisement.

    The results are instant! So many business models need it as requirement like traffic arbitrage or people promoting cpa advertising. That’s why I said it’s was more of a requirement.

    Seo is cute and all but media buying is the way to do business right lol

    Addictive as long as it can trigger revenue from other streams.
