how to work and find an ads manager

Latest  Episode

In today’s episode of the show, I wanted to talk to you about how to navigate working with and also hiring a Facebook/IG ads manager.

While I 100% think you should know the basics of Facebook ads so that you can have an educated conversation about them, I also want you to consider delegating them to someone once you’ve gotten the basics down.

It’s but one piece of being the Optimized CEO of your business — hiring and delegating so you can be focusing on the most important aspects of your business. 

Whether you’re currently working with an ads manager or haven’t yet taken that step, this episode is your roadmap to making this relationship as beneficial as possible for the both of you.

I break this episode down into what your responsibilities are when working with an ads manager and then what their responsibilities are when working with you.

I think some of what I share is going to be an eye-opener for you.

Having worked as an Ads Manager in the first couple years of my business, and also being a successful online business owner who teaches Facebook and Instagram ads, I have a unique perspective on this dynamic.
