Our ship was sinking and I was watching it sink. In that ship was our business, our mortgage, our family's future and perhaps even our marriage. I was accepting that we were becoming broke. This small business we bet our money on was taking everything down with it. We tried everything. We failed.
Across the way was Jacqui, always ecstatic about her new venture and how fantastic it was going. We tried Facebook ads ourselves, but it didn't work. Jacqui was going to be our last resort. I asked her to start 'yesterday'. She got straight on it. This is what happened:
Day 1 - A lot of consulting was done between Jacqui, my wife and I which seemed to last about 12 hours of relaying messages about ideas. Our ad went live and we got 1 'click', but no customer.
Day 2 - 6 clicks, no customers
Day 3 - 18 clicks and our first customer! If we can get 1, we can get 10! Optimism was very slight, it lasted about a minute before doubt set back in.
Day 6 - We got loads of clicks and the phone was ringing. Enquiries came in. Jacqui kept tinkering with the ad. We put on another ad.
Day 11 - Our first full week with Jacqui on-board. We went from 8 bookings the previous week to 24! All I can remember was feeling addicted. I kept looking at my calendar to see new bookings!
Week 2 - We broke our best record of most earnings and most bookings. We made more ads!
Week 3 - More growth and new customers every day! Everyone has seen our ads, we get reports from everywhere.
So now we are scaling the ads as it all pays for itself anyway. Jacqui is the lifeblood of our business. We simply would've gone bust without her. I don't know how she did it, but she did it! She saved our business!
Thank you Jacqui, we can't be anymore grateful. You saved us and it was not long ago when we were in the gutter. Thank you so much. You are an angel
