    Don’t repeat, it’s dangerous! Promotion mistakes that we have done for you

    If anybody says he has never failed -- don't believe: entrepreneurship is about ups and downs, experiments and learnings. How to avoid spending money on irrelevant advertising or influencers? How not to burn out competing with the huge ad budgets of your competitor? I'll tell you, how we failed to become stronger. Anyway, it's more convenient to learn from somebody’s mistakes, than from your own.
