Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions to a digital advertising specialist and the suggestions we have compiled for you.

STEP 1: Start with the smallest budget!

If you are advertising for the first time or if you do not feel knowledgeable enough, we recommend that you start with the smallest daily budgets your business can afford.

Now increase your budget! You saw that their sales started to increase at a similar rate, one more than two times.

You should increase your budget according to the numbers, but it is up to you whether you increase it from day to day or month to month. Set a timetable for yourself, act accordingly and be patient!

When your sales are not increasing at the rate of your budget increase, immediately return to the previous budget level. If your ad is underperforming than your previous experiment, look for reasons:
