Strategy Session: Troubleshooting Facebook Video Ads, Webinar Funnel & Audience Targeting

Today’s episode is a strategy session with one of my students, Alan Beckley.  Alan is an entrepreneur whose mission is helping inventors and entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams more quickly.

Alan has been running video ads and testing short versus longer copy, but he’s now wondering how he can see better results from his Facebook marketing as it’s not working quite as well as he would like it to.

He’s also hosted multiple webinars for How to License Your Invention for Royalties, and is looking for ways to reach his ideal audience of inventors (and people who want to become one), and have more registrations and attendees.

In this episode we break down his current ad campaign and webinar funnel, analyzing the numbers while I look for a “red flag”, or reason for why he’s not seeing the results he’s after.

I don’t feel that Alan needs a large budget for running ads, but he does need more traffic. As you’ll hear, his click-through and conversion rates are pretty strong, so I share my recommendations for how he can get more traffic into his funnel to drive sales of his products. There are also things that he can do in terms of testing at the front end of his funnel, in order to hopefully lower that cost per lead while raising the relevance score of his ads.
