3 Big Facebook Ad Mistakes That Cost Me $125,000 And How You Can Avoid Them
I’ve got a quick question for you…
Have you ever wanted to work from home? Own your own business?
Come on… you know you want that lifestyle… the one that everyone talks about..
Where you can work from home in your underwear. On a beach with your laptop…
So… why hasn’t it happened for you yet? Come on.. admit it
This isn’t the first time you’ve been looking for a proven way to bring in leads and make more sales… is it?
When is it your turn?
When you read this blog post to the end, you’re going to discover a hidden secret that not many marketers online know about.
My name is Tyler Pratt and a few years ago I was just like you..
I crawled out from under my desk, almost hitting my head as I grabbed the phone..
Hello, I muttered..
What the @#*(# ARE YOU DOING? responded the stranger on the other line.
Confused, I asked him what he was talking about.
In the last 3 months you have missed your payments on your credit card bill, and we’re shutting off your access.”
I was so confused..
I got a lump in my stomach as I hung up the phone and realized that I now had to explain to my new wife of just a few years that I’m the reason we have no money left.
You see, just a few months earlier, i had officially started my new business as a facebook marketer.
Or so I thought
I had been trying to learn online Marketing for almost a year now, and I keep hearing people talk about how the most important thing you can have is…
Targeted traffic to your offers. It made total sense to me
I did the math. If I could spend $1 and get back $3 every time, I could spend just about any amount I want.
It made total sense.. right?
And I saw others doing it.. All I needed was a good traffic source. I just had no idea how to get one…
The problem I had was I had no Idea how to generate the right traffic.
And thats when I had my big “Ah-ha” moment..
Thats when I decided I had to make a change.
So first I tried Google Adwords. That didn’t work at all. Then I tried Media Traffic (banners on blogs), and that was a little better…
And that’s when I finally tried facebook marketing. And guess what? This time it worked
Well kinda worked for a short time…
Sure I was making sales, but I was spending more than I was bringing in.
And it was all from 3 Big Mistakes. But once I fixed the mistakes, and after $125,000 in the hole later. I figured it out.
Let me explain…
Facebook Ads Big Mistake #1 – Boosted Post
At one time facebook fanpages were all the rage. Everyone had one and it would bring in tons of great traffic.
But then facebook decided to change up things and only show new posts to 4% of your audience.
This crushed my fanpage traffic that declined by 95%.
But a little blue button popped up on the bottom of each post. That said “Boost”
Mistake numero uno was clicking on that button. 🙂
First off that blue button is not targeted. There are alot of fans on your page that would not be interested in your offers.
Think, mom, dad, sister, brother, high school girlfriend/boyfriend.
Yes they all like your fanpage, but would not be interested in your 10 ways to build a bigger business online.
A general rule is this.
If facebook recommends it, that does not mean its what you should do it.
And “clicking on the boost your post” on your fanpage is not what you should do!
I know, I keep boosting and spending, boosting and spending. $125,000 later with a big ass credit card bill.
Facebook Ads Big Mistake #2 – Placement
When you setup a facebook ad they give you about 6 different places you can put your ad on all over there website.
Desktop newsfeed, Mobile newsfeed, Desktop right side, Instagram, Articles, Video, and Audience Network
Look at all the choices… Makes your marketing mouth salivate doesn’t it.
Just thinking to yourself.
“I can get tons of traffic to my offer and make Tons and Tons of Money”
Don’t do it 🙂 🙂
Oh and LOOK, they even recommend All Devices
Ok so my 2nd Big mistakes that cost me Big $$$ is placing my ads on All Devices
It took me a long time but I figured out that Mobile Desktop was eating all my money like a giant Monster who was hungry.
So again, if Facebook recommends it, does not make it right to use.
Facebook Ads Big Mistake #3 – Targeting
One of the trainers who I was following explained that you can target just about anything you want on facebook.
And he said he was crushing it targeting Thought Leaders.
You know, like Tony Robbins, Frank Kern, Russell Brunson, etc…
So when I heard that I started to get super excited.
“Why target just one when I can hit them all at the same time”
haha,, Im sure you can see where this is going and leading to my Big mistake #3
Look at this List, and then think about all the Thought Leaders in your industry.
Mistake #3 really put me in a hole fast. I was spending so much money and I could not figure out why.
Later I realized that some of the thought leaders are so over priced that it killed my campaigns.
So basically I was spending way to much for ads I didn’t not need.
And thats when I realized it wasn’t my fault!
Its because of wrong information from the so called “gurus”. No wonder I was struggling!
For years, they had been telling me Targeting 2 Million + was the only way to get traffic to your offers, and when I figured out that it wasn’t true, I was finally able to break out of their cages and get the results I deserved.
The real problem is marketing gurus who are putting out bogus information. They were the ones keeping me from getting targeting real traffic, or real buyers interested in what I had to offer.
Once I realized I was making these marketing mistakes, thats when I started to get super targeted traffic and making sales really FAST!
But it wasn’t just me. Hundreds of others stopped making these mistakes and started using facebook to gain massive success.
I didn’t realize when I started that not only does it bring in targeted traffic, but also targeted leads, buyers and repeat customers.
So what I did was get with some others who used these techniques and we put together a super training called Magnet Facebook Marketing
This took us 30 hours to create, and cost me $30,000.
But it was totally worth it.
