#153: The Perfect Storm of Facebook Ads Problems (Behind-the-Scenes of My Recent Launch)

On today’s episode of The Art of Paid Traffic, I’m sharing with you lessons learned during the July launch of my FB ADvantage LOCAL program.

We had a perfect storm of technical issues like we’ve never had before and I want to share with you what happened and the lessons I learned in the hope that it can help your business — particularly when it comes to the big problems we had with our Facebook ads.

In addition to the Facebook ads issues, we had also major problems with our Infusionsoft email campaign AND my site got hacked just as the launch was about to close.

Good times, indeed…

Even if you’re not doing launches in your business right now, hearing about what happened and the lessons I learned are still going to be super useful for you, so don’t wait on diving into the episode.

On the Show Today You’ll Learn:

  • How scaling our ads affected the delivery of the existing ads that were running
  • Why, as frustrating as Facebook ads can be at times, you still gotta keep rolling
  • What to do when you get into what I call Facebook’s “negative algorithm”
  • My hypothesis of why the issues happened – how audience overlap, our starting daily budget and “slow” conversions out of the gate affected the campaign’s performance…
  • The single biggest lesson I’ve learned about launching
  • And so much more!
