Why I'm not running Facebook ads right now

In this episode of the Know Like and Trust Show, Britney Gardner explores why Facebook ads aren’t dead, why organic marketing has to be in place before paid marketing, and why she isn’t running ads right now. 

I’m not running Facebook ads right now, and I wanted to share why. You’ve probably heard that ads are dead, but they’re not. Bad ads are dead. I’m not running ads because I don’t know the goal of my ads. I could run ads to build my list, but what’s the point of a big list if I can’t make more revenue from it? I’m not ready to run ads yet, but I will be soon. I’m working on my organic content strategy first.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  1. Why Facebook ads aren’t dead, even if you might have heard they are.
  2. Why your marketing, specifically organic marketing, has to be in place before paid marketing.
  3. Why I’m not running ads right now and what I’ll do before I start them up again.
