123. 10x your Audience in the Next 30 days
Ads Made Easy is different.A strategy to Supersize your Audience
Building a big, warm audience is crucial for online store owners like us.
In fact, it’s more important now than ever before.
As the online world becomes “cookie-less” we’ll be less able to rely on traditional retargeting.
It’s already happening on Socials Media, and 2023 will bring big changes for Google Ads.
But there’s good news for us.
We can use Social Media ads to build big warm audiences full of people that know our Brand and are interested in our products. It’s an Audience building strategy that all of us can use.
We teach this strategy inside of our Inner Circle.
And I’m making it available to you in Ads Made Easy. Join me for a whole week of coaching.
I’ll show you how to set up ads that will supersize your audience. You’ll leave knowing how to make ads that will grow your audience every single day. And you’ll do it using a tiny budget.
You can join us here, for only $15: https://classroom.thesocialsalesgirls.com/ads-made-easy-coaching-week
Even if you’ve tried ads before and felt like you were wasting money, I promise you.
It’s not hard. In fact, it’s simple, it’s repeatable, and you can do it using the content you’re already creating.
Invest a few weeks into building your audience. It’s the fastest, most affordable way to build a big warm audience.
You’ll see the benefits fast. When you retarget your audience with a call to action, they’ll be:
2x more likely (than a cold audience) to click a link and visit your website 2x more likely (than a cold audience) to enter your giveaway 2x more likely (than a cold audience) to watch your videos 2x more likely (than a cold audience) to become a buyer ...and, it will cost 20% - 50% less per click
Don’t wait. Get started on this important work this week. When you build your audience, you’ll set yourself up for long term success.
122. Reels That Sell with Tracy Harris
Reels are a great way to build your Audience because they reach people who are not already following you. When you provide quality content on reels, you’ll grow your followers organically.
Not long ago, I spent some time with my good friend Tracy Harris. She’s an Instagram Expert, and she’s really good at getting strategic with content. She showed a group of us a simple way to generate leads with Reels.
When I saw what’s possible for service based businesses who use Reels strategically, I knew that Product based business owners like us could use Reels to get free traffic and sales.
So, I asked Tracy to come and help us with a strategy.
Listen in and learn how:
-You can create a 3 part framework for your Reels
-You will increase traffic and sales by adding one thing
-How you can repeat this strategy over and over
How you can see what’s really working, and amplify that content by turning it into an ad.
So smart, and not hard!
Tracy is launching a new Reels course launching soon.

121. How Nicoletta saved $60K and got control of her traffic
Nicoletta spent $60K working with an Ad Agency last year.
Nicoletta has a bereavement jewelry business in Australia.
Last year she spent more than $60K with an ad agency in an effort to grow her business.
Her results were dismal, and the ad agency blamed her poor results on her website.
Around the same time, she saw an ad for Ads Made Easy Coaching week.
She paid her $15, signed up, and committed to doing the work.
And everything changed. In fact, she doubled her sales from January through July.
In this episode, you’ll hear what she learned in Ads Made Easy that changed everything.
We’ll talk about her results, and how long it took for her to see big changes.
And if you’d like to see the amazing video we talk about in the episode, here’s a link to Nicoleta’s video on Facebook:

119. The best strategy for organic growth
How can we grow our businesses organically, without relying on ads?
This year I’m seeing more conversations asking how store owners are growing their businesses organically.
I think it’s brilliant.
We all know that we need to invest in advertising to grow our audiences, our traffic, and our lists.
And even in 2022 as we’re experiencing higher costs, less reach, and diminishing results, I know it’s still completely possible to build a big warm audience and get them to take action. It’s affordable, and it’s a smart strategy.
But there’s so much more we can and should do to grow our businesses organically.
Today I’m talking about Collaboration.
What it is, and why I think it’s critical for eCommerce store owners like us to make it a consistent part of our marketing plan..
Every one of us is investing time and money building an audience and a list.
As business owners, we’re Influencers, and we have the attention of a diverse pool of people who can relate to our products, and know, like, and trust us.
Time and again, I’ve watched our Inner Circle Members collaborate with each other successfully. They’re introducing each other’s products to their audiences.
And because they have influence, their audience takes action. It’s powerful.
Over the next few months, I’m going to bring you real stories from Inner Circle members who have experienced significant growth by collaboration with each other.
You’ll see what’s possible for you.

118. It's the end of the Roadmap
It’s the end of the Roadmap to $50K.
A few months ago, Sock Doggo quietly crossed the $50,000 mark.
As I celebrated (in my mind) I started thinking about next steps, and how I could share the key takeaways with you in a format that would help you grow your business.
When I started this project, the outcome I wanted the most was to share what it takes to get your first $50K in sales when you’re a solo entrepreneur.
When you don’t have unlimited time and unlimited funds.
It’s important, because we’re surrounded by a culture that celebrates the big wins, and defines success by sales alone.
When you’re working by yourself, and your business is growing in baby steps, it’s not hard to feel like you’re failing when you’re measuring your progress against someone’s big win.
I wanted you to see what’s normal for most people.
I wanted to show you what worked the best to get sales without spending a fortune.
My goal was to give you the information, and leave you with a strategy that you could apply to your business. If you’re working on your first $50K, or your first $500K.
I’ll share the numbers, the cost, and exactly what work resulted in the most sales.
