Rejection is hard.
Expending large amounts of energy, putting everything you have into something and having it turned down is not an easy thing to deal with. It causes doubts and makes moving on and trying again harder.
But by breaking down what happened and what you can do for next steps, you can conquer that rejection and make it a learning experience.
Let’s say you created a text ad for a search engine. That ad did not perform as desired, no clicks at all. Once you have accepted that it did not perform, take a step back and break it down into pieces. The title, content, and link all play key roles in grabbing your readers attention and getting that all important CLICK. Perhaps you can use a stronger word or an action phrase to grab more attention, use a hook to get them to want more information.
The key is recognizing that rejection isn’t permanent, you can rework a piece, rewrite a headline and always try talking to a client again. Focus on shifting your view point and allowing yourself a second shot and learning from what has happened. Whether it’s marketing, personal or anything else, you can always try again!
