How I increased revenue by an extra 5% this year

graph upIncreasing revenue isn’t always achieved by making a product better or keep innovating on it. You can also increase revenue by making it people easier to give you their money. Which is one of the things I have done over the past 6 months or so.
In the first half of this year, through last year, I had some issues finding a suitable Credit Card processor. In short, none of them would have me as a customer for various reasons – Mostly because my revenue was too low or because I was not in their area of operation.
This post outlines the past 15-18 months of me finding the right combination of checkout options.

Stop calling me from India or Pakistan

That’s right – In fact, don’t call me at all. If you’re not Dutch and don’t have a question related to the use of products and/or services I’m not interested.

Even more so, don’t call me on my private cell OR on a phone that is not operated by AJdG Solutions. AJdG Solutions has no phone. And that’s for a reason.

I’m sick and tired of people calling me from New Delphi, or where-ever the hell they are, with advertising opportunities or bullshit about me needing mobile apps. I’m not interested in your skills as a developer and I don’t care that you only cost $10/hr. I also don’t give a rats ass about your call center and I don’t need a online secretary either. Go away! Stay away!

New domain – The best domain!

Over the course of the last few days I’ve worked out a way to seamlessly replace the domain ajdg.net with something new…

http://ajdg.solutions/

That’s right. My full name as the domain name! Best domain I ever bought 🙂

Facebook Ads, is it worth it?

Screen Shot 2014-03-13 at 11.56.22Since a few days I’m running a bunch of ad campaigns on Facebook for AdRotate.

Lot’s of likes, the targeting of people seems good. But there is little to no engagement so far. Nobody sees my posts or something – Perhaps I’m impatient. Facebook doesn’t offer much insights in when to expect results. Just “you’ll get much likes per day”. But that’s useless if nobody sees your posts. So how useful are Facebook Ads for you?

Do you use it? Does it work for you? Thoughts?
