The Seven Steps of 
The Million Dollar Media Buy
#1: Research
A.) Ad Account Audit
- What ads have been run in the past?
- How did they structure campaigns?
- What worked?
- What didn't work?
- What are their metrics? CTR, CPC, CPM
- Who clicked? Men or women? Age? Device? Platform?
B.) Market Research
- Be a detective
- What are competitors doing?
- What are they selling?
- Price points?
- How do their pages look?
- Traffic reports from Similar Web, Similar Sites, etc.
- Are they running ads? If so, what do they look like?
- What are their customers saying? What do they like and dislike about the brand?
- Know EVERYTHING about your competitors
- Buy their products, go through their funnels, book their free strategy sessions, etc.
C.) Customer Research
- Surveys to internal list or ads to surveys
- Phone interviews with prospects and existing clients
- Get people to describe their pain points and desires in their own words
- Look for trends
- Set up "power rankings" for the pains and desires
- Look for deep dark secrets
- What's the primal motivation behind what the person is saying?
#2: Metrics
A.) Establish Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
- Eliminate all guess work from your funnel before you spend a single penny
- The more complex your funnel, the more metrics you will have to track
- Start as simple as possible
- Build a dynamic spreadsheet to measure the impact of various things on your bottom line
- Ad Level Metrics: Cost Per Unique Link Click, Cost Per 1,000 Impressions (CPM), Unique Link Click Through Rate
- Landing page metrics: Landing Page Conversion Rate (LPCR)
- Offer metrics: Sales Page Conversion Rate (SPCR), Cost Per Acquisition of a client or customer (CPA)
#3: Tracking and Reporting
A.) Install the Facebook Pixel the RIGHT way
- Install the base pixel code on every page of your funnel
- Install events and parameters unique to each page
- Set up custom audiences for inclusions/exclusions
- Set up custom conversions
B.) Install secondary tracking (i.e. Google Analytics)
- Make sure this is installed on every page
- Redundancy
- Don't trust Facebook's reporting
C.) Set up your Facebook Ads Dashboard
- Don't waste time looking up meaningless stats
- What to include in your dashboard
- How to set up your custom dashboard columns
D.) UTMs and link tracking
- Set up UTMs to measure the performance of each ad, landing page, etc.
- The specific you can get your reporting, the better
- Use affiliate links to track sales from Facebook
- Avoid dealing with Facebook's wonky attribution window
E.) External Reporting
- Facebook ads are just the tip of the iceberg
- Focus on their results in context
- Set up a spreadsheet that draws corollaries between your traffic and the rest of your business
- Makes it easy to identify the small hinges that can swing big doors
- Things that are working and can be scaled
- Things that aren't working and need to be changed
#4: Infrastructure
A.) Build the SIMPLEST Funnel Possible
- The more "stuff" you add to your funnel, the more work it is to get good data
- Most businesses don't drive enough traffic to run real tests, so they only focus on top of the funnel tests (i.e. CPC, LPCR, etc.)
- These tests may not be having the response to your business you think.
- Ex. You can raise LPCR or get a cheaper CPC, but end up with less sales and profits
- Cheaper doesn't mean better
B.) How to squeeze every possible conversion from your landing page.
- Keep it as simple as possible
- Pre-Headline
- Headline
- Simple Instructions
- CTA Action Button
- Once you have this version done, test adding in bullets about what to expect in the training/report/etc., testimonials, and your bio.
- Another possible test... long form landing page
#5: Copy and Creative
A.) The Perfect Facebook Ads Template
- The LLC Framework
- L: Lead
- attract the quick clickers
- L: Longer Copy
- C: Creative (videos and images)
B.) Picking the right images and video
- Studies from Facebook and other sources say that up to 80% of the impact your ad will have on a user is based on the image or video used
#6: Launching Your Ads
A.) The structure of a successful campaign
- Set up and turn on retargeting before you launch the ads to cold traffic
- Don't let anyone slip through the cracks
- One single variation of text
- Start with three images per ad set
- Run these three ads to different Ad Sets
- Leverage existing assets if you have them
- Lookalike Audiences are powerful
- If not, test one interest per ad set (if the interest is too small put a few together)
#7: Scaling Your Ads
A.) Getting the most out of your hard work.
- Finding a winning Facebook ad is a lot of work
- The simple version of your scaling strategy: kill off losers, give more to winners
- Scaling Method #1: boost budget by 15-20% on the winning ad sets once every 24 hours
- Scaling Method #2: clone the winning ad sets and start them at a higher budget
- Experiment with manual bidding
- Look at data from your ads
- What is the age and gender of the people interacting with your ads?
- Once you have data, look at your numbers
- Run the winning ad to the winning section of your audience
