Got a new paid order today. The customer found us by searching online -- on the internet! Yay!
Even though I am running paid ads on Facebook (a very small budget) and seeing good click throughs, haven't had a paid gig conversion as yet. Some 13K impressions / 7K reach and 250+ clicks in 3 days with ads running only for certain localities in my city.
Going to let this run for a bit - atleast till 10 days and see what happens. (Today is day 3 I think).
Anyways, this was pretty cool. I asked her how she found out about us and she said - she searched online. So, yay! Again!
I expect this to be slow.
Also learnt that this was a print job for a festival she was organizing in her neighbourhood. A written quiz for kids - so I offered her a 50% discount if she would let me print a little message - an ad - on the back of the pages. She agreed.
Let's hope this helps spreading the word - a little.
I think word-of-mouth is going to factor in big time here!
