    They spend money on paid advertisement more than what they make from sales. After losing some money, they decide to change the strategy. They do that by joining a Pay Per Click advertising program. Though, it doesn’t achieve enough sales. They lose more money. They think they took the wrong decision by relying on paid advertisement.
