Media Buying Tips! Got end of summer plans?
Understanding the time of the year and people’s patterns is integral to being a great media buyer. The reason a person can buy media better than a computer in my opinion, is that you can plainly think in common sense. There are some key factors most automated systems do not take into consideration.Changes in response rates could be based on:
This week because of a certain thing that happened on the news we increased budgets on a campaign and also saw our organic results on a niche SKYROCKET. We could have never taken advantage of this is we just “set it and forgot it.”
Being that mobile marketing is here to stay, and now virtually anyone can access DSP inventory, I have put together some new super Airpush tips. If you have not taken a look at Airpush.com recently you should as they have a new optimization tool that is just plain awesome.

I Ordered a Tesla!
A friend of mine that could literally buy any car he wanted ended up ordering a Tesla and loves it! So I decided to visit one of the Tesla stores and of course ordered one as well!

The reason I work for myself…FREEDOM!
This year my daughter Natalie and I worked out of the same home office (she’s now a Senior in High school) While I worked my normal 16-20 hrs a day she got to spend time with me while she studied.I am a huge NBA fan, so of course after watching many playoffs games with me she became a fan of the Spurs. When they made it to the finals, my wife decided to surprise us with tickets to game 5!

Buying Facebook Ads? Stop being lazy!
I have heard reports of people paying upwards of 50% of profit to companies to help them monetize Facebook ads. 3 words don’t do it! I understand wanting to maximize every dollar and “set it and forget it” but let me tell you in my vast experience optimizing by hand blows away any automation you can ever come up with. Over and over I have used tools and every time we switch back to manual we increase profits by a substantial amount. Also if these companies were so valuable why are none of them making money?
