    "Cardwell was offered promotions, but turned them down."

    LOL. At a gas station? To what?

    Great story and thanks to the OP.

    For anyone who finds the page down go to a search engine and look for it there. There's plenty of agencies covering the story.

    "Cardwell's strategy was to increase "likes" to his page by posting his photos only to India or Mexico. Then, he'd post new photos to the US, New Zealand, and Canada. Because of all the fans his page had, Facebook's algorithm would favor his pages in wealthier markets. Sales would go nuts."

    Anyone in facebook marketing should do this.

    i am really curious but does anybody have more info about his business? like how does a gas attendant get all that merchandise to sell?

    Was it a dropshipping gig?

    If anyone knows, i think the story would be even more interesting for us here at bhw. The article is justt he tip of the iceberg.

    Gotta wonder if that story wasn't written by a Faceook employee knowing that the 'success' story about Facebook ads would go viral and everyone would start buying ads to try themselves...

    The article you refereed to looks like garbage. There are so many grammatical errors and it looks like a story. The two screenshots provided do not add any credibility to the story.
    Note for others: Save your time, read something else.

    Basically, he was gaming Facebook's News Feed algorithm and business was great. Cardwell was able to quit the gas station job. He dropped out of school.

    That gives you the hint. ;)
