Planning A Sale? Max Your Ad Budget 30 Days Before It

Have a big sale coming up?

Spend the majority of your ad budget at least a month before your sale begins. 

Yes, you read that right.

Instead of spending on advertising closer to your sale, advertise on getting full-price customers a month before it. 

See how @johnhickey1970 does it and why it’s a great strategy:

P.S. Not only do you get customers who pay full price earlier, you can also email them your sale details to incentivize repeat orders! 💯

Do This To Make Your Shoppers Buy From You Again 

You know retention is key to lower CPA (cost per acquisition). 

And you know that customers who make a repeat purchase close on the heels of their first purchase are more likely to buy from you again. 

But how do you decrease the average days between orders?

Steal this strategy right from True Classic’s playbook: 

Thanks, Feras! We especially appreciate you sharing the customer-facing messaging you’re using for retention.

BONUS: Want the ultimate post-purchase strategy? Use packaging inserts to incentivize your shoppers’ next purchase. Here’s an opportunity with a 100% open rate guaranteed!

Use ChatGPT To Find Profitable Audiences on Meta 

Audiences are dead.

But are they?

Broad audiences are indeed outperforming most retargeting or even lookalike audiences on Meta.

However, that doesn’t mean you should retire interest-based audiences altogether.

They are continuing to perform well for several stores — especially for brands with niche audiences. 

Here’s how you can use ChatGPT or Claude to find the next profitable audience for your brand: 

Thanks, @gold_tesla - we can’t wait to try this out!

Brand: Beam
Category: Supplements
Format: Video (Feed & Story)


Find making short video ads hard?

Keep it super simple and effective, like this 12-second ad by Beam.

With just 3 product reviews and product shots (combining packaging and in-use shots), the ad conveys not just what their product is, but also the benefits of their product.

And what’s better, you hear it from their actual customers! 

In addition, the headline “Meet the Bedtime Blend that Keeps Selling Out” reinforces social proof with FOMO. 

So if you’ve been sleeping poorly and want a soothing cuppa at the end of the day, you’ll likely click on this ad. We know we did!
