On the show today I thought I’d talk to you about how to create and validate offers that sell. This is something that comes up a lot in discussions with my students, especially those in my Accelerator 12-month group coaching program. It’s one of my goals here on the podcast to share with you real-world examples that are happening, whether it’s in my listeners’ business, my students’ businesses, or in my own business. In this episode, I’ll be sharing with you how the offer of my new membership program, The ROI Club, came to light.
I have to mention that when I say offers, here I’m talking about paid offers and not free ones. You’ll hear that when it comes to paid offers, the very first place you need to start before doing anything is understanding the needs of your target audience. Once you know this, you can then create offers that will really serve them.
For today’s episode, I have another strategy session for you, this time with Hauke Pasch from New Zealand. Hauke is currently using Facebook ads for his wife’s new baby sleep consulting business. Since their prospective clients will have a very personal need, they will want a connection with someone they trust. I give Hauke my input on the best ways that they can build this trust and establish relationships while building brand awareness and generating sales.
I like the niche they’re in and they don’t need to have a big budget at this point for ads. They just need to be testing and not getting locked into any one single strategy. Most importantly, I feel they need to be aware of the different conversations with each of their target audiences, and the more specific to the audience the conversation can be, the more they will be able to convert their Facebook ads.
Listeners have been asking for more shows about e-commerce, specifically what are some ways that we can be selling physical products online with Facebook ads. I asked a bunch of my friends to see who is doing some really cool stuff in the e-commerce space (that I had to have on the show!) and the name Mike Jackness kept coming up.
Mike’s on track to do 8-figures this year between his four brands, and even if you don’t have an e-commerce business at the moment, you’re going to get a ton out of really smart ways that he’s marketing and selling his products with Facebook.
Today we talk about everything from how to create an e-commerce business, ways to come up with product ideas and what’s working for Mike now when it comes to his Facebook ads strategy.
We’ll also talk about what are some pitfalls you absolutely need to be aware of if you’re getting into the e-commerce space, and he shares what his Facebook ads “Marketing Trifecta Sales Funnel” looks like. Mike also explains why he clears his email list on a daily basis, and a whole lot more!
Today I have another bonus episode for you, where I share a Q&A session I gave to attendees at the recent Social Media Marketing World held in San Diego.
As you’ll hear, we cover a lot of ground here and the questions came from experienced Facebook ad managers as well as people just starting to use Facebook ads. One person I spoke with even shares how he made $500,000 in sales of an ad spend of $10,000.
Like I talk about a lot here on the podcast, even though the new Facebook algorithm is the “elephant in the room” that has advertisers worried, there’s really no need to panic if they are focusing on adding value and promoting engagement based on solid content.
On today’s episode, my guest is Rachael Welch, a marketer who is sharing her results from a recent launch that she helped a client with. Rachael posted about it in our Facebook group and it caught my eye, as she turned a $223.50 ad spend (in Aussie dollars) into almost $46,000 US!
As you’ll hear, Rachael helps people who are want to create, launch and sell an online course with the goal of moving towards and evergreen model. Perhaps most impressive is that Facebook ads aren’t really what she does on a day-to-day basis, but by testing some great strategies she got amazing results.
Rachael shares all her numbers, including how many people ended up registering and attending the webinar, the final sales (including those from the email follow-ups after the webinar) and costs per lead…
A big part of what we talk about today is the mindset shifts required around creating online courses. The truth is that you really don’t have to have a perfect course created before testing the idea and selling it, as long as you have a great offer and effective marketing strategy in place.
On today’s episode, I’m sharing more of what happened at last week’s Social Media Marketing World in San Diego. As mentioned in the previous episode, I recorded some live audio interviews as well as some Q&A from people who were at my session on Facebook ad custom audiences. One person that I spoke with was my buddy Steve Chou, from MyWifeQuitHerJob.com. He and his wife also have an e-commerce business selling handkerchiefs called Bumblebee Linens, and as well Steve was a past guest on The Art of Paid Traffic on Episode 140.
In this impromptu interview with Steve, he shares three e-commerce strategies that are working very well for him right now. As you’ll hear, these strategies are practical, actionable and easy to implement!

I just wrapped up an epic week of conferences, with both the Traffic & Conversion Summit and Social Media Marketing World happening here in San Diego. There was a lot going on at both, and I had a lot of conversations, so I wanted to briefly share with you the three big takeaways I had.
Makes sure to tune in to the next episode of the podcast, as I’ll be sharing more of what happened at Social Media Marketing World!
