Why Create Great Facebook Ads NOW?

You want to streamline your money, and get straight to the people who matter.

You have a budget, and you want to use it wisely. Facebook gives you total control over your money, and lets YOU decide who sees your ad and when.

You need to improve the results you're already getting.

You know you're close, but something's just not working. Let's work together to optimize your images, audiences, and budgets. Are you retargeting your email list? Using the pixel? Tracking "add to carts"? There are amazing things going on in Facebook that most people don't know how to leverage.  

You're READY to be a success story with Facebook

Maybe you're tired of hearing how everyone else is using Facebook, and you're ready to build YOUR own plan and start to see the rewards, and revenue, that can only be found by putting in the work.

Hi, I'm Tracy Petrucci

If you are like me, you have struggled with finding the time to try all the new things you should be doing to market your business. Every day there are new social media tools popping up and it's hard to know where to invest your time to get the biggest return. 

When you’re so busy wearing so many hats in your business, how do you know where to put your energy when you can’t afford to waste your time or money?  

I received my degree in global business because I wanted to learn basic principles of marketing, and how those could be applied worldwide. The problem was, there wasn’t anything being taught on digital marketing yet back then.  

All the focus was on very traditional marketing methods only. We’d go over case studies on Superbowl ads, billboards on the side of the freeway, and other really expensive marketing most small business owners could never afford.  

I am grateful I learned the fundamentals of marketing, don’t get me wrong, but I've had to put in some good time and energy over the last ten years trying to apply these things, in a digital sense, to get REAL results for my clients.

How I Got Here

Now with all those clients early on, came a TON of interesting . . . experiences. I’d get excited because one thing would work for one business, and then completely not work with the next. I don’t think this is news to anyone these days, mind you, this was a decade ago, so a lot of these things were just starting to make some noise for the first time. I mean, even now, my company is a team of 5 and we’re still struggling to vet the new tools that keep popping up. I would see firsthand how Pinterest would save one person’s business and then do nothing for someone else’s. Same for LinkedIN, don’t EVEN get me started on Snapchat. 

But here we are, we’re in a new era. I've been using Facebook Ads since 2008, and the ONE thing that works for my clients with all different types of business are these ads! I can't wait to help you get excited about Facebook again. 

I think one of the biggest problems right now, is so many people are teaching their one “proven way” or system to use Facebook ads, and I keep hearing from people because that system didn’t work for them, so we have to start over and figure out what does. I’ve spent thousands of hours analyzing Facebook ad results, and I have clients all over the world, and I can say this with confidence. In order to get Facebook ads to work for you, you need to find your own path. I just don’t think enough people are being honest about this.  

The good news is, almost any industry you can name, I can figure out a way to find the right people for it. I’m really excited to teach you exactly how you can use smarter targeting to stop wasting money dabbling around, trying to copy other people’s strategies. I would like to teach you how to make your own ads work, using your own strategy. 

The one thing that has universally worked for all of my clients with all different types of business: Facebook.  

Why? Because Facebook allows you to put your message directly in front of your perfect audience. From medical offices to tech start-ups to restaurants to online real estate to Kombucha brewers to home builders . . . your people are on Facebook. 

Facebook has allowed me to do great work for my clients and rapidly grow my company to a team of 5 social media experts. Facebook ads are so affordable, that once again, there are no barriers for you to start finding your customers. You don’t need investors, you don’t even need a website, to begin reaping the benefits of Facebook ads.  

One the most AMAZING things about Facebook for anyone, is there are no barriers to entry, budget-wise. You control 100% of your money, you get to decide when you want to turn an ad on or off, and you get to decide exactly who Facebook shows the ad to. I am now SO excited to share with you why I’m known as the most passionate Facebook Ads expert, and how exactly you can learn to love them too.
