Last week, if you happened to join us for part one of our two-part Facebook Ads podcast special, we set the scene by looking at Facebook marketing strategy, understanding sales funnels, planning and structuring ad campaigns, and mastering audience targeting.

This week, in part two of the discussion, it’s time to switch gears a bit and look at some more advanced topics around ad creatives, ad performance monitoring and optimization, and the very important, highly-converting area of ad retargeting.

Joining me again this week to discuss Facebook Ads is EventGrow CEO, Andy Reilly – and what a great pleasure it is to have Andy back on the podcast.

In this episode:
– Focusing on the desirable “after state” in your ad creatives
– Picking aspects of your race to highlight in your ad copy
– Aligning your ad copy with your ad images
– Creating video ads
– Incorporating important race info in your ad
– Deciding on, allocating and front-loading your ad budget
– Running price-increase ad campaigns
– Understanding your baseline target acquisition cost
– The perils of shutting down your campaigns too soon (in less than two weeks)
– Monitoring your ad KPIs: click rate, conversion rate, ROAS
– Retargeting campaigns: spending little for high returns
– Excluding registered participants from your custom audience campaigns
– Lookalike audiences and why they often don’t perform well for events
– Common mistakes people make when running Facebook ads, and how to avoid them
