Joining me on the show today is my buddy (and brilliant YouTube ads wizard!) Tom Breeze. Tom runs a U.K.-based YouTube ads agency that works with some huge brands and online influencers, and if his name sounds familiar, it’s because this is actually the fourth time he has been a guest on the podcast.
Tom’s not here to talk about YouTube ads today though, although we do touch on it a bit at the beginning of the episode. What we’re really going to dive into is answering a question that I get asked all the time: How much should I be spending on my ad campaign?
He’s going to break this down by getting into all of the stats that we should be keeping an eye on if we want to be running successful ad campaigns on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and the other online platforms that exist.
By this end of this episode you’re even going to have an equation for calculating your exact cost for acquiring a customer, which then tells you exactly how much you can be spending per lead. Not only has Tom created a framework for calculating this figure, but he also bakes in the profit margin to be shooting for.
This is an interview that got me so pumped, and I can’t wait to share it with you. Full disclosure, it is a bit heavy on the math, so I’ve if you’re a visual person like me, I’ve put together a PDF download for you to accompany the episode. This resource outlines the calculation that Tom shares today, and you can download it at http://rickmulready.com/278.
