How to turn clicks into customers: the online ad strategy every business owner needs

Start with your goal in mind:

Don’t start creating an online ad strategy without getting super clear on what you’re hoping to achieve. For starters, setting a clear objective ensures you even know what to click in Facebook Ads Manager.  It also informs which audience you should target when to increase your ad spend and which ads aren’t serving your goals. Jordan helps you get started with tips on how to set goals and measure success. From there, when you’re ready to increase your reach and profits, Renee has all the tips you need. 

It doesn’t end with the ad:

Too many business owners get hung up on the ad itself: the design, the creative, the offer, the CTA. Those things are important,  but the “sell” doesn’t send with the ad.  What happens when your ideal client clicks the CTA in your ad and then doesn’t buy/inquire/book?  An engaging landing page is key in converting the audience members whose attention you’ve worked so hard to catch. Make sure that your ad funnel is set up for success with Ashleigh’s expert advice and learn all about landing pages from Aleya to ensure your online ads move the needle forward.

You don’t need a giant budget:

Beginning with online advertising can feel not only overwhelming but also, unattainable for so many. The reason? People often think they need a million-dollar ad budget in order to be successful l. By revisiting your goal, following through on the steps included in this guide and setting yourself a budget that can ebb and flow with your ROI & profits from said ad, you give yourself the opportunity to start small with what you have. No seven-figure business is necessary.More than anything, remember, pricing strategy is unique to you and your business and lifestyle. This guide can help you assess and establish pricing best practices to grow your business.

Bonus tip:

Now that you’re thinking about online ad strategy, be on the lookout for ads that catch your attention. Take notes on which ads you think work and why. That can help you determine what you’d like to include in your own ads.

A note: With the ever-changing nature of technology, algorithms, operating systems and more, be sure to check the latest platform updates regarding requirements and permissions when starting your online advertising.
