I worked my butt off for a month and a half to get conversions up from a lousy 0.60% to 1.30%

I had to test headlines, background colors, openings, other colors and graphics etc etc.

But I did it! I was so excited! I could see the future!

Taxes were going to get paid, business was about to take off etc etc...

Then a week later, along came a competitor, and now my conversions are 0.50%

What The %$##$#!

I am so discouraged

I had no idea an adwords competitor could have such an effect on conversions!

oh well...back to the bottom of the barrel.

I think the true key to facing any challenge is not strength, but resilience. Bounce back in the face of adversity.

It's an imperfect world and rarely works out the way we think it will, and I'm pretty sure that those who succeed do so mainly because they refuse to give up.

Lou Reed has a line that runs through my head in times like those:

"You have to be very strong, because you start from zero, over and over again."

That high? How did you manage to achieve such a good rate? Mine's currently at 0.07%!
