#182: [Case Study] How Rachael Welch Turned a $223 Facebook Ads Spend Into $46,000

On today’s episode, my guest is Rachael Welch, a marketer who is sharing her results from a recent launch that she helped a client with. Rachael posted about it in our Facebook group and it caught my eye, as she turned a $223.50 ad spend (in Aussie dollars) into almost $46,000 US!

As you’ll hear, Rachael helps people who are want to create, launch and sell an online course with the goal of moving towards and evergreen model. Perhaps most impressive is that Facebook ads aren’t really what she does on a day-to-day basis, but by testing some great strategies she got amazing results.

Rachael shares all her numbers, including how many people ended up registering and attending the webinar, the final sales (including those from the email follow-ups after the webinar) and costs per lead…

A big part of what we talk about today is the mindset shifts required around creating online courses. The truth is that you really don’t have to have a perfect course created before testing the idea and selling it, as long as you have a great offer and effective marketing strategy in place.
