How to Create Custom Audiences for Facebook Ad Manager/Power Editor with Ease

You may, or may not know that the Facebook Audience Insights tool is total crap.     It doesn’t let you target every interest that comes up in it; plus there’s many interests that you may add to the left side bar, but when you go and create an audience, you just cannot run ads (add them to your interest targeting keywords).

To be sure of what to target, most people would just go into ad manager, and use the fields there – however there’s a better, more efficient way to create audiences.     This is perfect if you have a team, and you trained up someone to be a master of creating highly passionate audiences like I have.    Why?   well, they can get access to this page without ever needing to hop into ad manager/power editor and create all kinds of custom audiences your VA or real life assistant/media buyer can simply select from a drop down when they are ready to put some campaigns online.

Here’s why you can create custom audiences with ease.

  1. Make sure you have business.facebook.com account setup.  The facebook business manager or FBM for short.
  2. On the top menu click  Asset Library > All Tools > Audiences

  3. On the Audiences screen, click the Create Audience blue button, then click Saved audiences

  4. Name your audience whatever you want (if you have a system for naming stuff so your media buyer(s) can follow, use it here);  and then setup your audience as usual:

  5. After you are done, click the CREATE AUDIENCE button and that’s it.

Now when you, or your media buyer, or VA go and create Facebook Ad Campaigns they will be able to select the right audience in a click of the mouse rather than having to enter it every single time!

Pinox – A kick ass affiliate network and why you should give ’em a go!

I first heard about Pinox around 4 months ago from an acquintance on Skype when asked if anyone knows a good place for sweeps offers.   So I had one of my guys sign up, and run a small test.    To make a long story short,  what worked for us was that they had exclusive offers in real weird geos that no one else had; so we had what’s called first movers advantage by running the offers on their network.

Anyway,  If you are looking for the perfect affiliate network to start with, be sure to check out PINOX.  They have a great lineup of exclusive mobile offers in weird geos; and weird geos are the key to profits in 2017.     Sign up here, and use iAmAttila when they ask who referred you so they actually approve your application.

What my team really likes when working with Pinox, is that their reps actually know their shit, and can recommend not only the top offers, but also tricks and which traffic sources match up real well with the offer to send HQ traffic that converts.    This truly sets them apart from a lot of other networks, who just want you to sign up and only talk to you IF you start showing volume.

At the moment they have over 350 mobile offers in pin submits, sweepstakes, SOI/DOI, dating niches.    They constantly add new advertisers and a lot of new offers weekly.  Here is a latest EPC report they gave me, which shows there’s quite a lot of impressive offers in, again weird geos you can buy super cheap traffic in to make some good coin.

Another great thing about PINOX is they sign advertisers directly, meaning they do not re-broker offers from other big networks and then make money doing absolutely nothing.    They also use modern tools like Forensiq, which monitors traffic quality to get rid of fraud which helps ensure you will have top conversion rate, as you can see from the EPC reports.     They use a very advanced offer tracking system, just like my other favorite network Adcombo, which in my opinion allows for way faster traffic flow and better performing campaigns.  Their system is built with redundancy in mind just like the top affiliate marketing tracker out there,  and uses the same Amazon based engine behind the database.

One super cool feature I almost forgot to mention is that Pinox developed a smart bot for Telegram @PinoxBot. Download it with one click to track your balance, statistics per hour/day/month, new offers,  you can keep track of your stats while on the go.

They are a great network if you are an affiliate that needs unique offers you won’t find elsewhere; then it’s perfect place to start.

PS:  PINOX just launched an awesome contest where if you are an affiliate you can write a case study with how you ran an offer with PINOX and by doing so enter in their contest to win one of many great prizes like Apple iPhone 7 Plus,   Macbook Pro, or Apple Watch.       The contest just started so get going right away! Click here to get your account setup and start making money >>

How to find people most likely to buy your Shopify products? [Quick Guide]

Shopify is hard as hell, it’s not uncommon to blow $10,000 to test 100 products, and lose $9000 in the process. When you ask people how do you target your products, most will always tell you BROAD. Which is total bullshit, and it’s a sure way to lose all your money really fast. (Unless you already spent a million bucks plus, and you have a trained pixel, but that’s another story not all of you starting out can proudly be in possession of).

So HOW DO YOU maximize your chances to succeed and find the peeps most likely to buy your SH*T? :D

Facebook audience targeting / interest targeting / keyword targeting coupled with the NARROW down function.

Let’s say we are trying to sling a cooking related product, going broad would mean targeting everyone in the country thats a woman, maybe 25+ right? That’s like over 30 million people, too much. Even if you narrowed it down by using the “COOKING” interest keyword, it’d be way too broad. You see the way fb works is their algo will automatically throw anyone in that liked anything related to cooking, and this does not mean that person loves to cook; hell no. Maybe they watched America’s Test Kitchen once, and liked the show, or they are fans of Gordan Ramsay just because they ate at his restaurant. THIS WAY IS THE SURE WAY TO BANKRUPTING YOURSELF!

The right way to go is to go after the passionate people, you find them by starting with the broad keywords like COOKING, and then narrowing that down with RECIPES, and then adding in some MAGAZINES like Taste of Home, and even more magazines, like Cooking Light, and more magazines like COOK’s Illustrated Magazine.

Now the tards at Facebook took away one of the best ways to explore a niche and get the truly the best targets passionate people in that niche love – aka the affinity score. But that’s ok, we can use Google. For magazine’s just type top NICHE magazines, NICHE organizations, NICHE clubs, and the list goes on. Then you take these names, and add them into your targeting.

Here’s how cooking is looking for me, narrowed down through 5 layers:

As you can see, the audience is 12000 only – yes, yes I know when you talk to people they will say they love their audience to be 2-5 million, that is the sweet spot.   REALLY?   Why is that the sweet spot, do they explain?  Or do they explain how they got to that audience size?

You see,  the smaller the audience size the better as long as you are targeting and narrowing it to be the most passionate.   Facebook is so damn smart, that if you run ads to these guys and the product does well,  then you can generate a LOOKALIKE based on everyone that clicked through from this audience, and then you will have your 1 mill, 2 mill…. 5mill audiences that are very much like the people in your super passionate narrow audience.   And that is where scaling begins.

Hope you liked this quick one,  until next time!

[ECOM 101] How to Add Products to Your Shopify Store Using Oberlo

If you are not using OBERLO to add products to your drop shipping store, then you should.     Doing it by hand is so yesteryear.  Anyways, here’s a quick guide that I wrote for my staff so they know exactly how, why, and what we do in order to add products to our store.       I have written notes on the screenshots in red, you might need to click to view the full image sizes to see what they say (if interested).

Pull up the products you imported/added to your Oberlo

The main product page will have Product, Description, Variants, and Images.  These tabs let you set everything that needs to be set when importing your product.

 


 

One important thing to note is the link to AliExpress product preview.  Or this red button down below.  You want to press this and open a preview of the product on ali in a new tab/window.  Hopefully you are working with a dual monitor setup, in which case you can throw that to the left or right monitor and have Oberlo product edit screen open.     You will then be able to come up and write the product titles/descriptions really fast and efficient while looking at the product on the other screen.  If not, then you better become fast at switching between windows/tabs :)

 

When adding products, it’s very important to also select the right collections,

 

You will also want to select or add in the product type, and some tags that most relate to your product like this:

 

Next up, comes the description of the product.   Many aliexpress products come in Centimeters;   sadly Americans use Inches and Feet, the imperial system so you will have to whip out a converter and convert the cm’s into inches so they can understand the sizes.  Same goes for weight.      Write an interesting and catchy description for this product, and include the product specs after it – or if you are a bad ass,  tie in the product specs into the text, and bold them so they are eye catchingly easy to find.    If you suck at writing descriptions,  hit up bannerslanders.com, and ask about their description writing services for ecom.

 

Next up, variants.  This is imported by default in Oberlo, and it usually is spot on, however sometimes they add weird numbers or words into the Variant description boxes like you see below, so it’s important to make it look nicer by fixing it up a bit.

 

A ton of images are grabbed by oberlo, and some are auto selected.  It’s important to review this tab and make some adjustments either by adding kick ass pictures from the selection or ommiting pictures that contain watermarks, logos or foreign text.

 

When all is said and done,  all you have to do is press the Push to Shop button to get the product live in your store, and that’s it.  Not rocket science is it? :D
