If you’ve ever ran Facebook ads, you know how time consuming it can be - especially for beginners.

Here are 5 Tips and Tricks for running FB ads that I still use to this day:
#1 Got multiple creatives to launch?

Upload them in the media library first.

You don’t want to upload them one by one as you create your ads.

-Go to Business Tools
-Click Media Library
-Click the ad account
-Upload all your creatives at once
-Go back & launch your ads
#2 Want to edit the naming convention of multiple campaigns, ad sets, or ads?

-Select the campaign, ad sets, or ads that you want to edit
-Click the drop down icon beside Edit
-Click “Find and Replace”
-Replace the portion you want to edit with the edited text
#3 Want to keep the social proof (likes, comments, shares) of your ad when using it for another campaign / ad set?

Use the post ID of the ad instead of recreating it.

-Click edit on the ad you want to recreate
-Click “Facebook post with comment”

This'll open up a new tab to show you the ad's URL

-Copy the set of numbers at the end of the post URL - this is your post ID
-Create an ad & click "Use Existing Post"
-Then paste it into the “Enter Post ID” field

You'll see the exact same ad appear along with all social proof
#4 When to use the “Search and Filter” box at the top of ads manager?

-To search for a specific campaign/ad set/ad
-To filter your selection
-To see your saved searches

And many more.

If you want to find something specific in your ads manager, use this tool.
#5 Want to see which demographics are performing the best?

Use the Breakdown tool.

Select the campaign, ad set, or ad and click “Breakdown” at the top right screen

You can breakdown performance by:

And so much more.

Hope these tips help.

How I went from $0 to making over $25 Million for my clients while living in a third world country:

A thread on how one book and a missed party changed my life.
Before we begin, let me just say:

This wasn’t quick.

It took me 5+ years of when I started my entrepreneurship journey to get here.

And while not everything was pretty,

I did learn very useful lessons along the way:
When I was 17 I used to drink every day.


My friends gave me rides. Paid for my drinks. Took me out every day (and night).

Dream college life right?

I thought so too.

But something didn’t seem right.

"Mark, why are you targeting the same audiences in different campaigns? Are they not going to compete with each other?"

A quick explanation (my thought process) below.

Thread. 👇
1️⃣ If I have a performing audience, I'll use that audience to test and validate my ads.

I don't want to test audiences + ads (or other variables) at the same time.

When testing, I focus on one.
2️⃣ Most of the time, the testing budget is relatively small for the audience.

For example:

If you have $20 for testing, and your CPM is $10, and the audience size is, let's say 100m.

You're barely scratching the surface.

//How You Can Increase the Saliency of Your Ad Creatives//

Saliency is a necessary quality your ad should have for them to be noticed by your audience.

And there are three (3) HACKS you need to know to achieve this:

What are these?

1. Color
2. Orientation
3. Size

A common mistake newbie designers commit is overusing colors when designing an ad.

Stop using too many colors and start putting more emphasis on the focal point of your design.
You have to lessen the value of the surrounding elements so that you center if attention is clear.

Because if everything is equally vibrant, there’s no saliency.

Let me give you an example 👇

//You won’t believe this… but one HUUUGE difference between making $30,000/month and $300,000/month is a creatives team.//

This is definitely true for our agency.

Let me explain more below.

You can’t scale to hundreds of thousands of dollars per month with creatives alone. You also need to have the right systems and strategies in place. But having a team who can execute effective creatives for your campaigns can help you out in a really big way.
So let me tell you why by explaining to you the difference between:

Are you randomly testing ads hoping and praying that you’ll someday hit gold?

Want to find the winning ad that would help you scale your campaigns?

If your answer is yes, then lend me 3 minutes of your time and I’ll make sure you won't regret it at the end.
Let's talk about testing.

I can honestly say that this has the power to change your business forever.


Because testing helps you optimize your ads before you launch them at a larger scale. (potentially saving you thousands of dollars).
PLUS it gives you the insight that you need to convert your traffic to customers.

New ideas are tested against existing ones (yours/your competitors’) in an attempt to out-perform those that are already in place.
