Memorable Quotes from Azriel:

  • “If you understand what your customer wants and you know who your customer is that’s 80% of the real work. The technical work of the Facebook ad is not that difficult once you understand who your customer is.”
  • “I hate boosted posts!”
  • “Power Editor allows me to create a lot of testing that is much easier to tweak and change in Power Editor.”
  • “If you’re running a conversion campaign, the minimum is $5/day per ad set.”
  • “If you only have $5/day, start with one ad set that you believe is the best targeting you can get, then try to find the best ad for them by creating 10-15 different versions of the ad in that ad set.”
  • “I create 48 ads in every ad set.”
  • “Every industry and every audience and every business has a different thing that works. You must be willing to test.”
  • “I prefer to run images now without text because Facebook literally hates text in the ad.”
  • “To build your page with a like campaign is not so good.”
  • “Facebook knows better than you what will perform for your business. They want you to succeed.”
  • “Target warm leads first, create look-alike audience, don’t ask them to sign up for the event, ask for an email and sell them in the email.”
  • “Convince the audience you are the most amazing person in this field. Write a piece of content that is so amazing they are convinced you are the best person.”
  • “The reason I like video ads is because you can serve content to a person without them having to leave Facebook.”
  • “Test everything you think you know. Spend the money. Prove yourself wrong. Prove yourself right.”
