When you know what you’re doing with facebook ads, in some industries it’s as easy as making your dinner, and we’re talking pot noodle here, not some overly complicated salmon dish.
I was approached by a guy who didn’t have much money, his business was on it’s knees and he was taking on such small jobs just to pay the bills that I thought I’d help him out, in exchange I would be able to use his stats etc for a case study, that’s what you’re reading now.
I hear a lot that sending traffic direct to a sales page doesn’t work anymore, well… check this out…
This is my…
So the industry…. Wedding musician, specifically he is a pianist.
What you will learn
Probably the best way to go about this is just to show you the steps I followed, this took me a total of around 3 hours and has generated £2,000 in work for the client at a total cost to him of £300, £200 for my fee and £100 in ad costs.
You’ll see at the end, how that £200 turns into £1000 monthly for me.
Ok so 5 steps… READY… SET… GO…
Then I write 2 very headline (25 characters) and 2 basic bits of text (90 characters), the only aim of this part is to get people to click the ad, don’t worry about anything else.
I then mix the 2 images with the 2 headlines and 2 pieces of text for 6 total ads.
You can also add another 200 character in the advanced section but it wasn’t necessary in this case.
I have toyed with people who are interested in wedding stuff too, but this didn’t make a difference to conversion rates, you can just type “wedding” into interests and all of the available interests concerning weddings will be listed.
You don’t have to use leadpages, you can do this with any number of options but I like leadpages, it’s easy and it tracks everything I need it to perfectly.
Here is the page I’ve used, I also have a different page set up to split test against but this is the winner. I have removed any blatant personal info from the image but you will still get the idea, simple and based on building trust and authority.
Here is the exact form I use and he closes around 80% of the leads, even turns down a few as he is too busy for them.

You don’t need to see much here, so…
Here are the facebook stats
Here are the leadpages stats
So essentially, I spent £108 on 63 clicks from facebook ads, of which 18 of those people filled out the lead form.
Average cost per lead generated = £6.46
As mentioned earlier, I only took on this job to try and get this post published by Matt, i made a very small amount of cash but obviously I’m not one to miss an opportunity so I saw a chance and took it.
I approached a wedding photographer and a cupcake baker in the same city, told them what I had done, told them my fee was £500 per month and i can generate leads on demand, they both signed up.
To fulfill for these client i simply, changed the ads and the landing page, kept everything else exactly the same aaaaaaaand…… BOOOM!
25 enquiries for a total facebook cost of £97
12 enquiries for a total facebook cost of £40
I could go on and on selling this exact same funnel to different wedding services in this city and it would deliver similar results to all of them.
Keep things simple, concentrate on each individual action:
