Demystifying Social Media Ad Buys with Josie Kapetsonis
Being an online entrepreneur for about 10 years, Josie is no stranger to learning how to stand out among the competition on the web. Starting as a blogger, she wasn't sure what she wanted to blog about, then settled on the topic of helping women save money.

"I think you get to a point as a blogger and you're doing everything to get people to your blog with SEO, and then Google changes their AI." She started to become fed up with the ever-changing SEO in 2016, so she started exploring Facebook ads as they were able to get her significant results fast.
