The Power of Gratitude
Hope everyone is doing well. Welcome to the next round of the Sunan Weekly Roundup!
What we are working on:
This week we released another great and timely blog post title “The Role Ads Have Played in the 2020 Election.”
Political advertising has always played a considerable role in campaigning.
It’s not just TV ads either. Today, more than ever, candidates turn to various media types, mainly social media, to reach audiences that may have previously been out of their reach.
Digital and social media ads have served as a quick and cheap way to test out campaign messages, slogans, and even platforms to find out what works and resonate with the audience and what doesn’t.
This feedback has proven incredibly informative and vital for all candidates.
Looking at Facebook Ads library, President Donald Trump and President-Elect, Joe Biden have ran over 1000,000 different Facebook ads totaling over $200M dollars in ad spend from just their pages alone! This does not include ads from various PACS, Super PACS, and other partisan groups!
My biggest takeaway this week: The Power of Gratitude
I have some really exciting news to share with you, the Sunan community!
It’s been an amazing journey thus far! As a premier design and digital marketing agency, we have been able to make tremendous impacts for our clients and our community.
In just three years, we have completed over 143K design requests and generated over $28.7M in revenue for our clients. In the past 12 months alone, we have managed over $1.6M in ad spend for our clients! And we are just getting started!
Now more often than not, when entrepreneurs and businesses share with you all the glamour and success of running a business, they fail to share with you the other side, which personally I feel is the most important part.
And I’m not going to lie, the other side can be extremely scary!
For me personally, it’s been filled with a lot of stress, anxiety, and fear. Fear of failing to take Sunan to the next level. Fear of not producing results for our clients and even the fear of being an imposter. And the list can easily go on and on and on…
But in the midst of all this, this week, I did something that I personally need to do more often. And that is to show gratitude.
Show gratitude for having the opportunity to serve and make a difference.
Show gratitude for having your team members in your lives. Especially in the global times we live in.
Show gratitude for having the opportunity to level up and constantly challenge yourself and your limiting beliefs. The belief that I cannot make a difference. The belief that I am not good enough.
Show gratitude for having the right spouse in your life. Someone that is always there for you and believes in you more than even you do. Someone who is there to remind you of your biggest takeaways each week to keep you focused and to raise your ambitions.
Showing gratitude helps put things into perspective.
After all, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it!
Now it’s your turn. Take a step back from the midst of all the chaos of 2020 and count your blessings. Then, take it a step forward and verbalize your gratitude to at least one person in your life. You my friend are still alive and breathing. There are so many that would give up everything to have the opportunity that you and I have.
Time to level up!
