A Little Bit About this Episode:
Let's get real for a minute…
When we first launched the Screw, the majority of our traffic was not our ideal customer. In fact, it consisted mainly of our family, close friends and a few Facebook followers.
And while they were nice to have around the place, they didn't exactly make for the best customers.
Now I'll be honest, learning how to navigate the inter-web waters was tricky…and may have even included a few demonstrative hand gestures, face palms, and angry typing.
Because let's face it, when you're first starting out traffic can be super hard to come by.
And that's frustrating.
So how did we power through those first few months where it felt like no one was listening or even cared about what we were doing?
We cowboy'd up.
We tested out a ton of strategies, cut whatever didn't work, and amped up what did.
But what are the strategies that worked?
Pffft I'm not just going to give that shit away! Click play and find out for yourself.
And then implement, homie!
