Facebook Ads Fundamentals

by Dennis Yu

Growth hacking is about getting the most impact from as little effort as possible.

This is the tactical, step-by-step process that you can repeat and run evergreen via the “dollar a day” technique.

We’ve perfected these growth hacking techniques for years internally, and for our clients, earning the Golden State Warriors a 29X ROAS on ticket sales. We’ve implemented these techniques across all industries and sizes, from small business to enterprise; educational software companies like Delta Ed, to publishers like The Economist. Best of all, it’s not hard. All you need is 10 minutes and $1/day to start seeing results.

There are 6 phases to growth hacking:

  • digital plumbing
  • goals
  • content
  • targeting
  • amplification
  • optimization

In this workshop, you’ll learn to save time, energy, and money when it comes to Facebook advertising by learning from our experiences and failures, rather than going through them yourself. You already know SEM, now see how organic and paid work together in social– a mix of content marketing, PR, personal branding, and Facebook ads working together.

Whatever you don’t catch, you’ll have the checklists for you or your teammates to implement later. This workshop is for all levels– Directors of Marketing, agencies, entrepreneurs, PPC specialists, analysts, nonprofits, small business owners, and students. Whether you’re on the paid or organic side, create content or don’t, learn how to get results from these cross-channel techniques.

How to Get Measurable Facebook Ads Results for a Dollar a Day

with Dennis Yu

Understand how the latest Facebook algorithm changes and escalating ad prices require you to be more efficient in your ad campaigns.

The “dollar a day” strategy will help you test ads quickly, building up your “greatest hits” that will continue to work for you for years.

We’ll together walk through how to assemble your 3×3 video matrix, to re-market for a dollar a day down your funnel. We will go through a simple checklist that you can follow to set up remarketing on website visitors, top customers, page engagers, email subscribers, and video viewers.

Besides driving sales, the dollar a day strategy will also help you build your personal brand and authority for your business, when you set up micro-targets by where people work, their job titles, and associations they are a part of.

We’ll cover the 4 things to do after you boost a post, so you know when to kill, scale, or tweak an ad– to amplify winners and stop losers.

Walk away with a practical checklist that you or your team members can implement for your company immediately.

The “dollar a day” strategy works for consultants that have only $100 per month to spend all the way up to billion dollar brands. The larger companies might have hundreds or thousands of ads running at the same time (instead of just a few, for small businesses), each starting at $1 a day.

Facebook Stories

In this interactive presentation, Chris Strub will detail why Stories should be part of your social media strategy; help you choose a platform to focus on; share engagement-driving tips from some of the world’s leading storytellers; and lead a live demo of how to create a human-centric story.

Limitations Inspire Creativity: How Social Media Algorithm Changes Create Opportunity

by Brian Fanzo

Change is exciting, Change sucks, Change is rapid, Change is scary, Change is constant! To embrace this rapid pace of change, we must embrace a mindset that allows change and create strategies that redefines what success looks like. Snapchat content disappears after it’s viewed. Twitter is now blocking the ability to share the same tweet to multiple accounts, Facebook is changing almost daily around privacy and use of third party tools….

Many look at these changes as bad or as an excuse to stop using the platforms but for smart social marketers they look at these challenges as opportunities to create amazing possibilities. It’s time for business leaders, marketing managers and content creators to shift their mindset, embrace change and leverage these limitations to create new strategies and goals that redefine what success looks like – to the benefit of their communities.
