#122: Case Study: Creating Local Business Offers that Convert with Mike Barnet

As a listener of The Art of Paid Traffic, you might know that one of my favorite things to do is case study my students and to highlight the successes they are getting.  

On today’s show, I talk with Mike Barnet, who’s up to big things in the local business marketing space.

Mike has effectively used his skills as a videographer (honed through years in the television industry) and his knowledge of Facebook ad strategies to get amazing results for his local clients.

Today we dive head first into two campaigns he’s recently done for a local pizza restaurant…

The first campaign gave them one of their best weeks in sales ever and in the second campaign, Mike spent just $130 on ads which generated over $500 in revenue.,

As you’ll hear, Mike proves that the myth that you need large budgets for your Facebook ad spends to see results is simply just that… a myth.

A big part of what we discuss is why the offer is so important. Often business owners think that their ideal client is just going to magically appear, but without an offer that can attract your ideal audience, this just isn’t going to happen.

And since he’s building his own Facebook ads business, Mike also shares details about his pricing strategy and how he gets his clients.  

Whether you’re managing ads for other business or not, you’re gonna get a ton out of this episode.

In Today’s Episode You’ll Learn:

  • The types of campaigns Mike ran for the local pizza restaurant that got him such great results
  • The offers that that generated these results
  • How Mike gets his clients and the pricing strategy he’s currently using
  • The realization that Mike made that led to him create a business that serves others
  • Why a strong call to action isn’t just nice to have, it’s a necessity…

  • And more…
