 Don't get tired of trial and error. Plus, you need to be tracking your ads so you will have an idea which one is more effective. Also, track the places where you send your ads. Admittedly there are various media by which you can advertise online. Don't limit yourself to only one or two sources. In fact, I would suggest you explore as many varied formats as you possibly can. That way you can reach bigger markets.
