This guy, Peter Gollwitzer of NYU, did a study and basically concluded that telling people your goals makes it less likely for you to hit them because your brain registers the praise for the idea almost the same as you accomplishing the goal.
Guess who told a bunch of people that he was going to hit $4k in profit from his case study and now feels like he’s on cloud 9?
Luckily, my motivation kicked back in and we’re back to the races.
I did attempt to run a giveaway on both the group and the page to drive additional members. No one participated and I saw no growth over the past few days.
The past few days weren’t a complete loss. I’m now the proud owner of megayorkies.com ($9.06) and have set up a landing page to drive traffic to to build our list. The list way be one of the ways we monetize but that’s later down the line. Need to actually get people excited about Mega Yorkies first.
Time to pull out the big guns. I’m going to run paid Facebook ads to the page in a hopes of getting our first 1,000 fans. This should allow for us to get the social proof needed to start growing organically.
I have to figure out for running ads without increasing our costs too much. I don’t want to spend more than $25. More to come on this.
That’s all for now. I’ll talk to you more in a few days.
Hit me up on Twitter and let me know what you think of the experiment.
Drop a comment and let me know how much you think I’ll end up spending on paid ads before we start seeing a lot of growth.
