    Fuck yeah for clickbait.

    Anyway ? don't read another article today. Do you know when the most productive months for me were? When I decided to stop READING and finally APPLY what I read. Reading will give you ideas but it won't TEACH you. Put your knowledge out there and see what happens. Good results? Learn what's working and improve it. No customers? You're probably using too many fancy fucking words with 30mb of photos showing how awesome you are. There you have it.

    Customers don't care how hard you worked to make a pretty site that loads in 15 seconds. They want their problems solved as EASY as possible for a fair price... now do it.

    P.S.
    I have a canker sore; should blog about it and see what it does for conversions.

    I get your point and I agree with it to an extent. Focusing excessively on reading tends to happen when you are afraid to take action, but same way around, no reading happens when you enjoy taking action non stop - which results in failure which results in experience and learning, but hey, if you read about something before putting it to action you might have saved yourself from failing and tried a different approach.

    Find a balance... because reading case studies and split tests results throughout different verticals will SURELY -teach- you how to figure out a campaign that works.

    And instead of looking at it from the "customers want their problems solved for a fair price", you need to make your customers want your price no matter if its fair or not in their heads. There is a lot more than solving things fast for a fair price... you can get a lot more if you are up for it.

    1 Article per day is more than enough. Just to continue training of the brain.

    True that. The key is to show the painpoint larger than the price. I can think of things in my life that I won't care how expensive they are to fix. Just back up your reasons for huge pricetags when asked.

    Reading is certainly helpful but it won't mean shit until you apply it & discover it works better/worse depending on what you do. Failures hurt when you're new but as you grow (doesn't happen to many unfortunately) you realize failure doesn't exist. Life just throws shit your way to see what you do with it.
