    NOTABLE! [Progress] Sanctus Nutrition - Supplement Company (and first real entrepreneurial pursuit)

    I'd love to expand into a protein, or other products, but I don't have the funding. Re: recovery; the right pre-workout goes a long way in reducing DOMS but most people don't realize that. L-citrulline in the 6000 - 8000 mg range will work wonders - but most preWOs drastically underdose it or...

    Hey, thanks for stopping in! Glad you found so much value here. Sanctus is still operating, but that's about the only good news or update. It isn't growing, and frankly, I'm at a loss for what else to do/try.

    A question/problem that has been weighing on my mind: This has to do with branding/identity. I present Sanctus Nutrition as a "science"/"health" brand - formulated by a pharmacist, clinically-dosed, naturally flavored, etc. I, personally, am not obsessed with putting on a "professional"...

    Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback! And no need to apologize, I'm not offended re: packaging and logo. I'd be offended if you weren't honest. Are there specifics about the logo/packaging you don't like? Or is it just the overall impression leave you unimpressed?

    I haven't, but I have thought of and want to do that! I would especially love a way to target only people who workout later in the evening/at night, but I haven't found a way to do that on FB or AdWords

    Appreciate the comment and feedback - thank you! I'd love to carry more products but funding is an issue. Here's my concern with apps like Hurrify: if I'm a consumer, I land on a page that has the typical mark-down with a countdown timer stating the sale ends in X hours...and I come back next...

    This is great feedback. I appreciate you taking the time to put a good amount of thought into that. Feel free to be "mean", my feelings won't be hurt. I know I'm shit at writing copy. I won't get super deep here but I struggle at relating/resonating with other people on a deep/personal level...

    Ok, I have a video campaign in progress. Like, just hit publish. Once the ad runs - how do I accomplish steps #2 and #3? How do I create an audience of people who view 75% or more from that specific campaign? I think I can do #3 once I figure out #2, because I've fooled around with look-a-like...

    Frustration is at an all-time high. This business is going bankrupt unless things turn around quickly. Product is not moving. Traffic isn't high, but what traffic we are getting, we are not converting. At all. Our only sales are coming from personal networks/referrals. Which is not scalable...

    Ok, making sure I understand: Current approach: drive traffic to website. Goal is to improve optimization by improving site design, copy New approach: drive traffic to specific landing page. When customer clicks "Buy Now" they will be directed to Shopify checkout. I'm assuming I select the...

    Sorry I have been so quiet lately. In the past I've had a problem with doing lots of reading and little action - being a "wantrepreneur". I've kicked that habit, but it means less updates here! THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS I AM FACING: Conversions Traffic #2 is easier to solve. FB/Adwords. Social...

    Sorry for the slow response - have been busy with the business and have not logged in for a bit. Thanks for sharing your story and your experiences so far! I appreciate the insights. We're going to a large convention next week so, in a way, I'm giving #6 a shot. Here's my experience with...

    I've been running the ads for traffic/link clicks. Re: CPA. We aren't getting purchases from our ads. I've had 3 total purchases that, per Ad Manager, came from the FB ads. 2 of those came this past Monday when I launched another re-marketing campaign to visitors who were on the product page but...

    Glad you asked re: free samples. I was logging on to make a post about those... HUGE pain point/source of frustration: free samples. 1. They are not converting as well as I want them to. 2. The majority of people who receive a free sample do not reply to my follow-up emails seeking feedback. I...

    Question: at what point do you consider raising prices? Reason I ask: Progenex is selling a product (Force) that is absolute shit if you wanna shoot straight, or vastly overpriced if you wanna be nice about it. It's $59.95 for 30 servings - about $2 per serving, which is what we charge...

    Hey Josh - really appreciate you taking the time to give your feedback! Few questions Re: reducing menu items. I've been told a few times I need to do something to improve social proof, especially since I currently only sell one product. I figured adding menu sections for things like "Find a...
