    Tricky to do but I know a few affiliates doing it successfully. You have to be super careful, can't use before/after pictures, can't make people "feel bad" for being fat, shit like that

    Hey Drought. Thanks for the value you are providing. The streets need this haha. I had a question. Whats the best way to get leads for the home renovation and realtor niche? I started a SMMA and have some potential clients. Help would be awesome.

    Real estate is pretty easy... Just target the zip code they work in and add in Trulia, Zillow, etc. as interests. Always make sure only using 1 interest per ad set.

    You can also buy lead lists of home owners to use for lookalike audiences, if you really want to get fancy.

    Awesome man. Thanks. Do you have any tips for ad creatives for service based businesses because that's where im working atm. I plan on scaling my business with ecom businesses but for now, I'm just trying to build my portfolio.

    You'll have to be more specific than service based business

    Ohhh for that type of vertical the ad creative will be the biggest key. Pictures/videos of finished jobs would be best. Nice looking luxury homes that sort of stuff. Targeting doesn't need to be fancy, just target 28-65+ in the zip code + a 20 mile radius around it.

    Hey man thanks for your offer!

    Do you have any advice in regards to finding audiences that aren't just available to everyone? I have used the developer API to find audiences that aren't immediately clear, and I'm running a few tests on them to gauge response.

    Also, I've been told by someone that creating an LLA when you don't have around 1000 purchases can ruin the pixel data, is this true?

    One other thing I'm a little confused about is whether its better to create a funnel (atc/ic/t25 custom audience > remarketing campaign), rather than just go straight for a purchase conversion goal (ecommerce)?

    And lastly if you could - how do you create effect narrowed audiences? It seems rather random to combine different interests, however my OCD train of thought wants to cover all bases. I can't help but think of every possible combination to see what would work best, or whether I'm overcomplicating this.

    Thanks for your help @Drought

    1. All targeting data inside the Facebook API is publicly available, there's no "secret" audiences.

    2. No, this is so untrue lmfao. There is almost nothing that can "ruin" the pixel data, short of deleting your entire site and starting over in a completely different niche

    3. Always go straight for the conversion in eCommerce

    4. Narrow interests don't perform as well as broad audiences. Facebook's algorithm is strong as fuck at finding the buyers within a pool of people, given enough money and time to optimize.

    Last month took a new store 0 to 20k on a new ad account using CBO's only I changed payment method from prepaid visa to a real Visa, all legit all my personal account and credit cards and bang Facebook logged me out. I sign back in asked for picture I sent them a picture than asked for ID I sent my ID. Account got disabled, what a fcken bullshit running whitehat ecommerce ads ( pet niche ) using my personal account and credit cards.

    Now I'm trying to figure a way out to get a account with business manager. What really pisses me of is the fact I bought a brand new macbook just so I can dropship. Any suggestions would be great.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Same thing would work for welders/car washes... though probably not as well as these businesses are reasonably low ticket and thus harder to make a good ROI

    Use the Audience Insights tool to find Interests

    Yeah FB is a bitch with switching payment processors. Overly cautious af. Just part of the game. All you can do is basically wait for support to respond to the ticket and hope they reinstate you.

    If they end up disabling it permanently your best bet is to have a friend/family member let you use their account to make a business manager under.

    What business approach do you prefer with lead gen?

    I'm not sure whether i should:
    - Gather leads for my own e-mail audience and monetize it.
    - Acquire clients and do the lead generation for them with their budget and getting paid a fixed rate.
    - Sort of freelance the lead generation by selling my leads individually to different businesses or brokers.

    Thank you

    Hey Drought, I am really thankful for all the valuable information that you are sharing. I'm diving into the whole thread just to gain more knowledge about Facebook ads.

    I have a couple of questions too.

    1. I am building my personal brand on Instagram and thought about gaining more followers there via Facebook/Insta ads. What do you think is the best way to dive into this? Make ads directly on Facebook and leading people to IG? Or IG ads and leading people just to follow me.

    2. When do you suggest to build LLA's out of website visitors or FB profile visits?

    Thank you so much for helping and I am really looking forward to your reply.

    Depends on how much money you have to play with.

    #2 (lead gen for clients) is the best method of stacking a lot of cash to re-invest into other projects.

    #1 is the most scalable

    #3 is a waste of time, never sell leads individually. Unless it's an affiliate offer that does PPL

    1. IG ads would be better. Though in my opinion paying for ads just to get followers is a waste of money

    2. Usually website visitors is better. Closer to customer interaction you can get the better.
