BONUS - 5 Things I Learned From a Facebook Ads Bootcamp

What's one of the best things you can do to build and expand your audience for 2024?Run a list-building Facebook ad.There are so many direct and indirect benefits when you put in as little as $5 a day into a lead magnet that already converts pretty well organically! So today, I'm sharing with you this impromptu bonus episode on 5 things I learned from a recent Facebook Ads Bootcamp by Zach Spuckler that I joined this past October. I also share with you the results of one of the list-building ads I ran and some of the positive effects of having it constantly running. If you're interested in joining, the next 5 Day Facebook Ads Bootcamp is from January 15-19th. It's only $10 to register (a total steal for the value you get and what you learn). You won't regret it!

CTP is out...for...SUMMER!

It's officially 2 seasons down for The Creative Teacher Podcast! Thank you all for listening and supporting this podcast. As we take a break for the summer, I want to share with you some opportunities to learn from me! Join the Summer Email SeriesRegister for the Teacher Seller Summit (affiliate link)Register for TPT Forward 2023 Mentioned in this episode:New quarterly product listing service option available!I launched the Ready Set Revamp product listing service last year and was OVER THE MOON with how well this went! I'm so glad many of you were able to get some great looking graphics and templates for your TPT resource listings. The great thing about this service is that you get the editable version of everything I create. You can use them over again with your other TPT products that I don't go in and do myself. But, if you're still thinking... Kirsten - I REEEEALLY don't like to come up with all the wording and update graphics for my covers and thumbnails (even though I really need to)... CUE - Quarterly Services! The BRAND NEW quarterly product listing service option is where over the course of 12 months, you will be granted 4 VIP Days where I go in and update 7 product listings of your choice for each VIP day. By investing in the quarterly service option, you'll get the VIP days at a 20% discount than when booking 4 individual VIP days (plus you get first dibs on my calendar)!
