We discuss ways that you can redistribute your budget based on your current needs including these main takeaways:

  1. Look at the short, medium, and long term and what are the activities being done for those things 
  2. How can you distribute your budget and spend based on your current needs – if you’re in a good position, you can start looking farther out to how you can invest in more longer term initiatives.
    1. This could look like branding, building your email lists, content marketing
  3. Investing in medium and long-term initiatives will allow you to reap the benefits of your early investments and get you a lower cost per conversion
  4. If you need sales now, stop shifting dollars away from long-term initiatives
