Day 181

Asim Akhtar,
Back


8:43 PM


Overall had one of my worse days


Didn't get toooo much done w/ programming


But I'm gonna go hard on it tomorrow




Also return on ad spend $$ declined slightly because I made too many ad sets


Also I think I can't sell in the UK because too many refunds + stock being weird


I think I'm going to get 30% cancellation rate


Which is fine... but people are cancelling AFTER I've shipped the orders



So, instead, I'm just going to cancel payment plan + refund 7.50 instead of the full 14.99


That way I break even on the customer and don't lose obscene amounts of money



Theoretically, then, I can order in bulk + ship to UK customers


BUT I think, given the cancellation rates, I'm going to stick to US 'dropshipping' model + just make bigger, better SAAS companies.



The day when I won't have to rely on e-com is coming soon.


If I'm fast, I think I can build a SAAS in under 2 months.


Gotta be fast though.



If I get my first SAAS solid, then I may just abandon e-com OR just keep testing new products


Can't have hours tied to a non-exponentially growing project.



If I take those same hours + apply to SAAS, rewards will be immense + outweigh e-com on all fronts.


Gotta move faster faster faster.
