Promotion tip 6: Learn to say "no" to bad projects

Should you jump at every bold opportunity that comes your way? Some would say "yes," but HookLogic's VP of search media, Steve Elson, says that you should be cautious when confronted with a new project that might not have the backing to support success. If you are presented with a project that is not getting the right budget, resources, or attention, your willingness to say "no" might be your greatest asset.
