2021.12.06 21:17 Annamai10 Christian view on vaccines

I will start by saying I’m fully vaccinated for covid. This was not a decision I even had to think twice about. It’s not to protect but it’s to protect old, sick and vulnerable family members and even strangers. We are commanded to show selfless love so why would I not take this step to protect my community? But the majority of people in my church and Christina community are against the vaccine. They don’t really talk much on the topic, but most of their views are that God will protect us without a vaccine I believe. I find this incredibly ignorant. Just because we have faith doesn’t mean we get into a car without a seatbelt or don’t take medicine when we are sick. We have been granted free will for a reason. To make wise decisions. I’ve even been told by someone they’ve been told by God people who have been vaccinated will not be taken in the second coming of Christ. How can my faith be decided by if I get a vaccine? They also don’t enforce the use of masks, they have taken some scriptures in the bible about being masked and used them in todays setting. Everything from the bible needs context and I don’t see how they can fairly say that the bible commands us not to wear masks to protect ourselves and others from what is very much still a deadly disease.

Bought some free weights for a home gym setup and I'm hoping to find a personal trainer who does in-home appointments with your own equipment. Does anyone know a good one they'd recommend who does house calls in Arlington?
Not looking for any long-term relationship or elaborate bodybuilding programming, I just want a couple of beginner sessions to get started with proper form and technique for basic barbell/dumbbell strength training movements.

2021.12.06 21:17 BruTeve Flawed ways that a lot of people think about their Facebook ads

Since 2017 I've worked with over a thousand Facebook ad accounts from the capacity of a quick audit up to as high as scaling private clients to $5,000 per day in ad spend. So what that means is I've had probably multiple thousands of different conversations with people about their Facebook ads or general marketing strategy for their business or ecommerce store. Not to mention the questions that I get in my inbox or the questions I see people ask all around the internet.

There are many patterns I see with the people and clients I've worked with in the way that they think or the way that they view Facebook ads and just marketing as a whole. I am going to share a few of the most common and the most impactful ways that people inaccurately view Facebook ads.

I'll start with the most important first.

// Ignoring the market feedback //

You know the saying "the customer is always right"? Well I believe that statement is not always true in every situation. The way that I like to see it instead is "the MARKET is always right". What this means is, the most important thing with a marketing or business strategy is how the market responds to it. If they respond poorly, then they are right. If they respond positively, then they are right again.

This is something common that I've encountered with many clients where they have an idea they want to go with, we launch the idea, and after a couple of weeks or so of generating feedback it is obvious that this idea is not going to work. No one is clicking, no one is buying, and it is not a profitable idea. However, the client insists on continuing to run this idea.

It could be something as simple as an ad video that they made that they really like or it could be running ads for a new product that they think will sell well. When the idea ends up not being a good one, what tends to happen when someone gets too attached to an idea is they will end up allocating budget away from ideas that are already working now and put it towards their new idea to do more testing or try a different angle.

An example of this could be a client that has an ecommerce store selling phone cases. The red case is selling very well and is generating a 5x ROAS with $100/day in ad spend. The business owners has an idea to run ads towards a new blue phone case that they really like so they take away budget from the red case ads and put it towards the blue. The blue phone case generates a 0.75 ROAS but the business owner wants to test more audiences, upgrade the videos, and write better ad copy. And then the ROAS is still at 0.75.

Don't get your ego attached to an idea. If something isn't working, then stop it. Focus your time, effort, and ad spend to scale up what is actually working right now. And if your market is responding positively to something (it could be a new product, a discount, specific ad, etc.) then scale the shit out of that thing.

// Comparing their costs to others //

An example of this way of thinking is "I heard someone is getting $10 CPMs with their Facebook ads and mine is $25 - how do I get mine as low as theirs?" After managing so many ad accounts, I've seen people with $3 CPM and others with $50 CPM, some with a 6% CTR and others with a 0.5 CTR. There are so many factors involved with the cost of running ads that are out of your control - other people advertising to the same people as you, Facebook's algorithm, time of the year, the market's buying behaviors, etc. etc.

The mistake people make here is for example they will see an ad that is getting a high CTR, and try to model it expecting to get the same high CTR. Or they'll see someone getting incredible results by using video ads, but your industry may not react to video ads the same as theirs. Or they'll see someone succeeding with a heavy discount sale.

What I recommend is to consider two things:

  1. You will have your own baselines and averages that will be generated as you run ads so just compare your data to your averages.
  2. Be open to trying new strategies but if it isn't working, then consider the possibility that it won't work for your industry.

// Analyzing data on the surface level instead of holistically //

Getting link clicks for $0.05 is great. Having a CPM of $2 is amazing. And a CTR of 3% is incredible. But these numbers doesn't always mean profitability and you shouldn't always go for the cheapest clicks or the lowest CPMs.

A few data points that matter more than those are cost of purchase, lifetime value, and ROAS.

The way that this mistake looks in practice could be running an ad towards two different audiences on Facebook. The first audience is getting $0.50 link clicks and the second one is getting $1.50 link clicks. Just based off that data, most people would rather go for the $0.50 clicks. But what if it takes 300 of those $0.50 clicks to get a sale but it only takes 20 clicks from $1.50 audience? Now the second audience is clearly the better one when you look deeper into the data.

What matters most is data quality and traffic quality, not the cost of that traffic. Many people make this mistake with running traffic campaigns in Facebook with the logic of thinking if they spend $20 and get a thousand clicks, they'll get a sale.

A quick solution to this is to simply analyze the other data that is attached to this element that point towards profitability. Click, add to cart, purchase, repeat buyer, etc.

// Taking super specific advice that isn't relevant to your business //

This one has many different levels and shades of grey to it, so before getting into it I must preface this with saying: I am not saying you should ignore all advice you are given with Facebook ads, but you should be careful about it.

What I see so many people do when making this mistake is they'll ask a question asking for very specific help like "Should I do lookalike audiences for my business and which one?" or "How much should I spend on retargeting?" and the answers they get are like "Yes do 1% purchase lookalike" or "Spend exactly $30 a day on retargeting" without providing more information about the situation.

It's like if you went up to a personal trainer that knows nothing about you and you asked them "How much should I eat in a day?" and they gave you a very specific answer without knowing more about your specific situation, then that would be a pretty good indicator that the advice they are giving you is not accurate.

This is why I tend not to give out specific answers to people without performing an audit or consultation in their ad account. So that when someone asks me "Which lookalike audience should I target?" I can look at their ad account, look at the data of their custom audiences, the performance of their retargeting campaigns, past campaigns where they're run lookalike audiences, what type of ads they are running, etc. etc. and then give them an actual answer based on knowledge of their situation. Even after analyzing their account, I tend to have follow up questions as well to get even more context so that I can accurately answer the question.

If you are going to take advice from others, I recommend either having someone audit your account to understand your specific situation or I recommend asking questions to try and get multiple answers so that you can from there do your own testing and find out what the right answer is for you and your situation.

An additional mistake that I see happen with this way of thinking is that the person needing help will provide all of the information that they think is needed to get accurate advice but they don't provide the right things. I saw someone posting recently saying that their store got like 1,000 visitors but no sales and they asked for help. I believe the information that they included was the store website, the amount that they spent on ads, and the amount of visitors. What was obvious to me was that they were paying way too little for traffic, so I assumed they were running a low-quality traffic campaign. After asking this, it was confirmed that was the case. Everyone else in the comments was just looking at the website like "Make your pictures better" or "Do a discount" but none of that advice would work until they fix their traffic quality problem. The person asking for advice had no idea that they should have included information about their campaign setting.

When people come to me struggling with their Facebook ad, it doesn't matter what their situation is... the number of different things that could be causing the problem is virtually endless. They could have bad targeting, poor campaign structure, too many ads in an ad set, not giving ads enough time to optimize, ad copy typos, low-quality creatives, weak offer, improper budget allocation, and the list goes on and on.

To provide a real-life example that is relevant to me, I know very little about cars. If my car won't start, it would take too much time for me to ask "My car won't start, why not?" because I'm not an expert and I can't provide enough context for someone to pinpoint the problem, they would have to ask me a bunch of follow up questions and I would probably not even know how to answer them or know what they are talking about. The best thing for me to do is to just go to a mechanic, give them the keys, and say "the car won't start" and let them start analyzing the problem. And in this situation, it also doesn't make sense for me to try and give them a ton of potential irrelevant information (within reason) that is just a waste of time like "Last week I got a car wash" or "I just got an oil change the other day" - what makes more sense is to allow them to ask ME the questions that allow them to get the information that they need for the situation.

If you went to a mechanic and said "my car won't start" and they immediately try to sell you a new battery, that would be the same as if you say "my ads aren't working" and someone immediately tells you to run ads on Instagram.

Providing a solution without proper diagnosing is malpractice in the medical field.

// Running ads that are not aligned with the brand //

With your brand, if you have a high-quality product or service then your ad creatives, videos, copy, everything in your marketing need to be high-quality as well.

This somewhat goes along with a previous point of how you don't want to model someone's strategy, you especially don't want to do it if it is not aligned with your brand, which is just one instance that a strategy could work for one brand and not yours. If the branding is different of someone you are modeling then usually the strategy that will work is different as well.

When people make this mistake, usually the way it happens is they will create a brand that is high-quality, expensive, and a clean looking website. But then when they make a Facebook ad it has a ton of emojis and try-hard discount codes, a crappy video that they paid $10 for, and it is just super salesy.

The way that I go about solving this problem is a little deep and psychological. What you want to do is think about what type of emotions you want the people to feel when they interact with your brand. Do you want them to feel confident? Maybe laugh a little? Or to feel inspired? Whatever that emotion is, make sure that the feeling is felt all through the buying journey. From ad all the way to check out. You don't want someone to laugh at your ad, cry when they get to your website, and then feel powerful when they become a customer.

A good exercise to do with this topic is to start being aware of other brand advertisements and figure out what type of emotions they are trying to evoke within you. I was watching TV recently and saw a commercial for My Pillow and it was the owner talking on camera and thanking their loyal customers. What I took from that was they were trying to build a personal connection with the viewer. An old job I had would run local TV commercials and every one of them had the president of the company on camera "Hi, I'm John the president of this company" and the emotion they were trying to give off was friendly and trustworthy in every single commercial they made because their branding was friendly.

And those are the most common and impactful ways that people think about their Facebook ads ad marketing strategy.

Would love to know if you've encountered these situations either within yourself or recognized it within others!

2021.12.06 21:17 ladybro Turning multiple static pages into a CMS collection

I've got ~20 or so static "newsletter" pages that I want to turn into a CMS collection since I'm constantly fighting the 100 page limit that Webflow imposes.
I (obviously) want to avoid having to re-create all of these by hand using rich text.
Is there an easier way to get these pages into a CMS collection, including styling and assets?
I've tried saving the HTML and adding it into a CMS page as custom code but there is a 10,000 character limit that prevents it from saving.
Any help is highly appreciated!
