B250 Wk8 Reflection

Buy my stuff. That’s what this week was all about; writing ads to promote our websites. I found it more challenging to write my own ad than to help other classmates with suggestions for their ads. I found the discussion board activity extremely helpful this week. Sharing our proposed Google Ads provided me with feedback from real people who are not as close to my product as I am. Therefore, they offer a different perspective. I provided two different ads, and I got mixed reviews. Some chose one ad while other chose the second ad for the opposite reasons. So I will have to weigh their comments carefully.

One peer gave me suggestions that were completely new for my ad. I think the best approach will be some incorporation of all the advice, and going with what my gut says. I wanted to utilize a tool on the Adwords webpage to see how my wording measured up, but I don’t think that’s possible until I actually post the ad. That seems backwards, so it’s possible I misunderstood.

I received my state business license in the mail this week. Now I feel official. I’m almost ready with my Google Ad to go live and then wait for the product to fly off the shelf, so to speak. Before I do that I want to add a few more product categories to the website.
