On today’s episode, I’m chatting with Daniel Danies-Hutt, a self-confessed “marketing nerd” who’s originally from England and now living in New Zealand. I’m so excited to bring this conversation with you, and as you’ll hear, I took down a ton of notes from it during our discussion. Daniel has a ton of amazing online marketing strategies to share here with us, as he’s someone who does the work upfront to set himself up for success.
Daniel got a unique start in entrepreneurship when he created a clothing company overnight. Within 5 weeks he was selling his products in 5 retail stores, and you’re going to learn a very cool Facebook ads strategy that he used to have those 5 stores calling him and asking how they could sell his product.
Things went so well that people started asking him to do marketing for them, including paid ads and content writing, and Daniel and his partner now have two blogs, Inbound Ascension and Amp My Content.
In this episode we look at how Daniel has been driving cold traffic to his content and generating $22 for every dollar spent on ads, and why he is using the conversions objective inside Facebook Ads Manager.
He also reveals the feedback loop he’s using to tell how much money he can be spending per lead, and the importance of working with the Facebook algorithm, and not against it.
Daniel explains how his paid ads are benefiting his organic content, and why he feels that his content is converting so well. Daniel does a great job at testing and not giving up on what he’s trying too soon, and you’ll see that he’s playing the long game when it comes to Facebook advertising (and winning)!
