And I help brilliant business moms (like you!) learn how to scale your business using Facebook ads.
As a busy mamapreneur myself, I know what it’s like to love your job as a mom AND your job as an business owner, but wrestle with the balance of family and work time.
After years of trying to figure out how to serve my customers well and be there for all of life's (little & big!) moments, I knew I needed to figure out a way to to stop trading my time for dollars.
I tried EVERYTHING in order to grow:
Promoting Blog Posts on Pinterest
Collaborations and JV Webinars
Connecting in Facebook Groups
Nonstop posting on social media
Name the growth strategy, and I've probably tried it!
When I finally mastered Facebook Ads, my business revenue grew by 400% within 2 months, and the more important part -- my health, happiness, and sanity increased by 1000%! (Actual scientific data 😂)
I've been using Facebook ads to bring in the right subscribers and customers for over 6 years now, and they continue to be the primary growth lever for my business (by a long shot!).
I work part-time in my multi six-figure business, and that wouldn't be possible without Facebook ads. The margin I now have enables me to build better relationships with my customers & students AND spend way more time with my family.
And I KNOW I can help you do the same.
.If you're ready to scale your business this year - with a system for repeatable sales that doesn't involve churning out more content, hustling all day on social media, or crossing your fingers that a promotion will pay off - I can't wait to teach you my system for repeatable sales with Facebook ads. (Warning... it's a little addictive, and you're going to become a data nerd before you know it!)
Here's what you need to know: Facebook ads take TIME to learn. That's why my intensive has 12 weeks' worth of content.
But once you learn my system, you'll have a marketing asset you can use for years to come. Plus, I love that I can tweak my ads at naptime, in the evenings when my kids are asleep... I don't have to travel anywhere, set aside time to speak on podcasts, or reach out for joint venture webinars or other partnerships.
All of those growth strategies can be great, but as a Mama with little ones at home, they're often not all that doable for me.
My Facebook ads campaigns work around the clock (whether my baby is sleeping through the night or not! whether my kiddo has a sick day or not...they're always working for me.)
I can't wait to teach you how to create Facebook + Instagram ad campaigns that work for you too!
Here's the deal: A lot of ads experts are perfectly happy to help you acquire leads or top-level traffic at break-even, and earn all of your profits in retargeting and your email funnels behind the scenes.
THEN, when you express concern about their inability to convert cold traffic, they put the blame on you:
“You’ve gotta build up your warm traffic
so we have something to work with.”
In other words: IT'S HUSTLE TIME.
Go post on social media more. And then hang out on all the platforms so you can make sure to comment on a thousand posts and respond to comments on yours.
Do some guest posts.
Create more podcast episodes.
Get featured on other podcasts.
You haven’t done a Facebook Live in a while...
Create more pins for more posts, then create some more! (And after that you should probably create a little more!)
You need more opt-ins & freebies.
You need to do more IG Stories.
You know… all the things you hoped to do LESS of now that you’re using ads to grow.
Friend, brilliant business moms like us *LOVE* the work we do, but that doesn't mean we want to spend every.single.minute of our waking hours spinning our wheels to make a profit.
Breaking even on cold traffic and expecting you to keep hustling to build up your warm traffic — that’s unacceptable to me! (And quite honestly, it’s a sign of a lazy marketer!)
With my Facebook Ads system, you’ll learn how to create an enticing offer that converts ICE COLD traffic at an upfront profit.
This way, your retargeting and email funnel profits are just icing on the cake.
As a small business owner, I know you can’t afford to plunk down thousands of dollars on ads and cross your fingers that the leads and traffic you acquire will buy next month.
If you really want to scale your business, you need to make a profit from ICE COLD traffic, so that you can continue to scale up the top level of your funnel.
When you make a profit at the top level of your funnel, you're not only growing your income right off the bat, you're acquiring highly targeted leads that continue to buy from you for years to come.
My system gives your business stability with a continuous flow of leads and sales, so quite honestly, everything else you choose to do in your business is BONUS.
You can blog “just because.”
You can hop on social media for the love.
You can start that high-level coaching program you've been dreaming about but haven't had the time for.
But you don’t have to do any of it to pay the bills.
I’ll show you how to build your own ice cold, profitable funnel inside the intensive.
Let's take a look at my system in action -- with stats to prove that it works!
For one of my smaller-priced products, my social media class, over the past 2.5 years, here's what my ads results look like:
25,968 targeted email subscribersthrough my ads.
$48,786.23 in ad spend
$79,608.82 in upfront tripwire sales
$30,822.59 in immediate profiton my ads
But my favorite part is all of those targeted new leads I earned (at a profit!) Because... keep scrolling to see my shop salesfor that same product over this 2.5 year period....
My total net sales (after returns) of just my social media class over that 2 year period in my shop:$162,187.00
$48,786.23 in ad spend
$113,400.77 in profits-- just for one product I sell
Those targeted leads I earned at a profit are what made such an enormous difference.
Look at the success of just a couple of my star students! (Who, by the way, are in completely different niches than I'm in!)
LaToya earns a 3X Return (from ice cold traffic) on her $17 Prayer Notebook Toolkit, and is building up a targeted email list full of BUYERS for her next product launch.
Corina earns a 2X Return (from ice cold traffic) on her $27 Outfit Guide for Moms. She now brings in 5 figures a month in her business because she has the right leads on her list and consistent growth via ads.
Karen earns a 2.5X Return (from cold traffic + retargeting) for her hand-dyed yarn. After a year of slow sales, she had her best month of sales ever in November -- once she started running ads!
Watch the video below to hear about Abbey's results after one month of running ads using what she learned in the FB Ads Intensive.

This opens up a brand new world of interest targeting for you, and I'll tell ya all about it in Unit 6!
WEEK 7: SETTING UP YOUR AD CAMPAIGN INSIDE ADS MANAGER I'm going to walk you through, step-by-step, exactly how to set up your campaign in Facebook - a tutorial you can refer back to every single time you're beginning a new ads campaign.
A lot of Facebook Ads experts will tell you that it's not possible to make an upfront profit from ICE COLD traffic.
Instead, they'll teach you complicated funnels that take a year to set up, and then tell you to send leads on through and cross your fingers... hoping in a few weeks (or longer!) they will turn a profit.
Nope, not happening on my watch. I'll show you how to set up an effective, high-converting campaign from the very first dollar you spend on Facebook ads.
In Week 7, I'm going to show you:
The structure of a Facebook ads campaignSo you understand what happens at each level of ads manager, and you know how to navigate to each section and find exactly what you need.
Exactly how to set up your ads campaign successfully in the Facebook ads dashboardI'm talking step-by-step, every single option and setting perfectly laid out for you. You'll know what budget to set, how many images and versions of ad copy to use, how many audiences to test, and more! Hint: What works best with Facebook ads changes CONSTANTLY, but with the Ads Intensive, you can be confident you're getting up-to-date information on the very best campaign structures, settings, budgets and more.
Learn what type of bidding to use and which placements to select There are NO mysteries when it comes to setting up your first campaign. I'll show you the exact structure that will help you to get the best results from your ads right out of the gate.
BONUS: Campaign Stats Tracker - so you can keep track of the stats that matter most to you, week by week, and easily see a drop in performance so you can quickly correct it.
WEEK 8: TROUBLESHOOTING & TWEAKING YOUR CAMPAIGNYour campaigns aren't going as well as you'd hoped? There is SO MUCH you can do instead of throwing in the towel! Learn exactly what the data tells you, so you can tweak your campaigns for BETTER results over time.
The data inside Ads Manager + Google Analytics can be absolutely overwhelming! And if you're focusing on the wrong numbers, you're not going to make the best decisions to help your campaigns perform even better.
Learn EXACTLY which numbers to focus on, what benchmarks you're shooting for, how long to let a campaign run before making tweaks, and how to get a solid campaign performing even better! You're going LOVE all the juicy goodness (that other ads instructors aren't giving you!) that you'll get in Week 8 of the program.
In Week 8, I'm going to show you:
How to customize your columns in Ads ManagerSo you're gathering the right data vs. vanity metrics that don't mean a thing!
How to become a data wizard -- confidently knowing what each and every metric tells you about what to do next In the ads intensive, we let the DATA tell us what move to make next -- instead of making random guesses based on our mood on a particular day! You'll be amazed at how much you can learn from the data -- and all the ways you can make your campaigns even more profitable as a result.
How much time and money to give a campaign or ad set before turning it offNo more waiting months and months for Google or Pinterest to help you determine whether or not something is going to pay off! Nope, with Facebook, it's literally a matter of DAYS . Then we'll know exactly what's working, what's not, and not waste a single cent before tweaking, improving, and testing some more.

Jenna's reaching the sales revenue she needs to leave her full-time job and focus solely on her business!
WEEK 9: SCALING YOUR CAMPAIGNSLearn all of the different scaling strategies you can implement so you're not stuck scaling by a few bucks at a time...for months! When you have a high-performing campaign, there are lots of fabulous strategies for amplifying those awesome results, so you can scale up more quickly!
There are so many different strategies for scaling up your campaigns, beyond just increasing your daily budget. I'm constantly testing new campaign structures to maximize what's working, and I have scaling strategies that I know "the other guys" simply haven't tried!
(Important to know: I worked with a fancy ads agency for FIVE MONTHS, and they couldn't get me past $80/day profitably. I spent ONE WEEK using my unique campaign structure, and scaled to $200/day with nearly a 2X return on ad spend.... for a $27 product.)
In Week 9, I'm going to cover:
Vertical scalingJust exactly how fast and by how much can you raise your daily budget -- without blowing your profits to smithereens!
The 7 additional ways to SCALE UP your campaigns -- so you've ALWAYS got another way to increase your reach and ad spend -- without sacrificing profits.You've heard about adding more budget to your campaigns, and you probably know that you can test out new audiences too, but I'm confident you haven't heard about ALL the different ways that you can scale your offers - WITHOUT taking shots in the dark. Scaling can be done in a way that doesn't break the bank, and by using the data you already have, you'll see success in your new campaigns much more quickly.
Alternative bidding strategiesOut-of-the-box strategies are an area where I shine! I'm never content to stick with the status quo when it comes to ads. YES, we'll do what works best, but because I'm always testing new bidding, campaign structures, and more, you'll hear the latest and greatest ALTERNATIVE strategies that other ads managers haven't even thought about yet.
Analyzing other important metrics for your ad account's long-term health and success
As you scale, there are several important metrics you'll need to keep an eye on (and they happen OUTSIDE of all those columns inside ads manager). Know exactly what to keep your eye on, and how to fix problems before they affect your profitability.
WEEK 10: RETARGETING + WARM AUDIENCE CAMPAIGNSLearn how to set up high-converting retargeting campaigns so you can get back in front of the RIGHT audiences (and get a great response instead of bugging them over and over with the same old ad!)
There's a reason I have you start running your campaigns to COLD audiences FIRST before moving onto your warm. If we can't find you COLD audiences that will convert, you're just going to continue running on that same hamster wheel of trying to build your warm audiences... and I'm trying to get you off that darn wheel!
Now that we've gotten comfortable with running ads to cold audiences, we can start to bring in your warm audiences to your ads strategy. This week, I'm going to show you the best practices for running ads to the audiences that are already familiar with you & your offer, as well as how to retarget (and convert!) those who've seen your offer and didn't jump on it the first time.
In Week 10, I'm going to show you:
How to create the HOT retargeting audience you need With IOS changes, it's more difficult to get back in front of our HOT audiences to make sure they don't miss out on our offers. BUT... there is a way to make sure your top-level cold ads are also building a nice retargeting audience for you as they work... and one that CAN EASILY be retargeted! Retargeting ads are trickier now than they used to be, but with the right strategies in place, they can still work, and you'll know exactly how to set them up to give them their best shot.
Best practices for warm audience campaign setup So you can pinpoint EXACTLY which warm audiences are responding the best -- without having to stress about audience overlap or wasting your money on segments of your audience that aren't converting.
How to know when your warm or hot audiences need a break from your offerSo you can take a step back and nurture them before offering up your product again. Hint: Bombarding your people with the same old ad over and over again is NOT a solid strategy (even though it's what 75% of advertisers out there are doing!)
Product catalogs can feel super confusing but, as a physical product seller, you'll want to know about these campaigns and have them at your fingertips ready to test. I'll take all the stress and overwhelm out of product catalogs for you!
Product Catalog Facebook Ads are probably the most misunderstood and error-ridden ads out there! When you don't know what you're doing, you'll show a confusing jumble of products to the WRONG people.
When you know how to use product catalog campaigns effectively, you can show exactly the right products to the right people -- and potentially increase your return on ad spend over standard Facebook ads campaigns.
If you're a physical product seller, you NEED to know about product catalog campaigns and add them to your toolbelt of marketing strategies.
In Week 11, I'm going to help you figure out:
How to take a look at your current product catalogsSo you know EXACTLY what's going on, and which catalog and product sets you should be using in your campaigns.
How to create a product catalog from your Shopify store Don't have a catalog set up yet? No problem! Create your product catalog -- and have it automatically update daily -- with my step-by-step instructions.
How to troubleshoot catalog errorsSo you can be sure that Facebook is getting the RIGHT data about your store, and you can use that data to get better results with your ads.
How to create a retargeting Product Catalog Campaign You know those ads where you're shown the EXACT products you just looked at in an online store? Now you can run those too! And it only takes a few minutes to set up when you know how to do it.
How to create a COLD audience Product Catalog Campaign Some physical product sellers find they can increase their profits with ice cold audiences -- simply by running a product catalog campaign. Learn exactly how to to set one up, and how to customize it so that you put your very best foot forward with cold audiences.
WEEK 12: ADS FOR LAUNCHINGLearn the best practices for creating ads + ad campaigns when you're launching a new product -- so you can maximize those live launch sales without sending out 100 emails during your promo!
In most of the intensive, we've focused on using ads to capitalize on an offer you ALREADY have. But even though we all love that passive income, we eventually get the itch to launch a new product -- or create a new promotion to continue serving the needs of our audience and grow our income even more!
When you're launching a NEW product (or promoting an old product in a new, limited-time way), your ad strategy is going to be a bit different.
Learn how to get your audience ready and excited for your new offer via ads -- before the offer is even out yet. And learn how to quickly test the very best images and messaging for your live launch period -- so you don't miss a single day of profitable sales.
In Week 12, I'm going to walk you through:
5 different pre-launch ad campaignsyou can runSo you're building excitement for your offer before it even launches! Learn exactly which campaign is right for you and your audience -- so you can maximize your results. Plus, learn who you should and shouldn't be targeting with your pre-launch campaigns (with lots of actual campaign stats and data to show you what works!)
Live launch campaigns Learn who to reach and how to reach 'em. Get crystal clear on the messages you need to focus on during your live launch period. AND stop wasting money on audiences that aren't going to convert. Honestly friend, this is one area where I want to shake the vast majority of ads managers out there, because they get live launch targeting all wrong -- and cost you a lot of profits in the process.
See real-life examples and data for my own pre-launch and live launch campaigns
Learn the exact ads that have brought me the biggest profits, and the ads and audiences that were total duds. There's nothing like data to give you clarity around what really works!
I can't wait to clink champagne glasses with you after your next incredible launch!
This program might be the *perfect* fit for you if:
You run an online business and know your target market
You already sell digital or physical products online and want help growing your sales
You're tired of running on the hamster wheel, never quite sure which growth strategies are paying off in your business, and which ones are just wasting your time...
But the Ads Intensive WON'T work for you if:
You don't already successfully sell a physical or digital product from your own website, blog, or Shopify store
You're not willing to invest the time and energy into digging deep on a powerful strategy for long-term growth
You don't have the funds to run Facebook ads and invest $500-$1000 into testing before you start to earn a profit from your campaigns... (And no, I don't mean that you won't be earning any sales during the testing phase - you WILL still get sales, it can just take some time to find that sweet spot of more consistent profitability for your ads and offer.)
What makes you qualified to teach me about Facebook ads?
I’ve spent over $450,000 on ads over the last 5 years and generated over $1,500,000 in sales for my business as a result. I’m constantly testing new ideas, so that I can give you the best, most up-to-date strategies (and the ones no one else is using yet!)
I’ve taught over 2,700 students my ads strategies, and I have helped launch them from beginning business owners to 5, 6, and 7-figure business owners.
Here’s what makes me truly qualified: I’m a scrappy Mamapreneur working in the margins, just like you. I don’t have extra cash to spend on useless strategies that don’t earn me a direct return on my ad spend.
I won’t teach you to get leads and then cross your fingers hoping they turn into customers. (This is what the majority of ads courses and agencies teach. Then they blame you when they’re not bringing you profits.)
I’ll show you how to make an upfront profit on your Facebook ads -- with ICE COLD traffic -- so that all of your results from warm traffic and your funnels are just icing on top.
How much do I need to spend on ads before I’ll start seeing good results?
I recommend that you be willing to put $500-$1000 towards testing, but you should know that the testing we’ll do is very methodical (and relatively slow and steady), so you’ll gain a ton of valuable data about what works and what doesn’t before you start to scale.
My students from the last round of the intensive, report, on average, their first sale happening within 3 days of their very first ad campaign. (And this is typically with less than $40 of total ad spend.) So keep in mind that even during the time you'll spend testing and tweaking, you'll still likely be making some sales to ease that testing budget a bit.
If you have a solid sales history + pixel data on those sales, it’s much easier to make profitable sales quickly with your ad campaigns.
If you’re a new business owner and the pixel hasn’t been on your site for very long, you’ll essentially be “buying data” from Facebook to figure out who your buyers are before you can optimize and scale.
What about IOS Changes? Haven't they made ads less profitable?
IOS changes and some Facebook changes HAVE changed how we set up our campaigns, which audiences we target, which methods we use to scale, and more, but for advertisers willing to adapt to these changes, there are still LOTS of profits to be made with ads.
The biggest change with the IOS update is that you HAVE to have an outside data source like Google Analytics or Hyros to know which audiences and ads are working best. But we'll show you how to get your Google Analytics set up and tracking in Unit 2.
What I see is that a lot of advertisers just aren't willing to adapt and make the relevant updates to their data and strategies. But that means there's even MORE room for scrappy Mamapreneurs like you who are willing to put in the work to figure out the right strategies.
IOS changes aren't slowing us down, and you'll find that my team and I are more informed about IOS changes than other agencies and teachers are. (We see misinformation everywhere!)
We go straight to the source -- learning directly from experts at Facebook, so we can give you all the facts without any of the hysteria that other teachers are contributing to.
I’m ready to sign up! How do I buy?
The June 2022 round of the Intensive is now open! It will cost $597 (or 3 payments of $217). Because this is a self-study round of the intensive, it costs about half the price of the next live round, which will take place in 2023 and consist of 3 payments of $397 each.
Make sure you lock in your seat now, because you'll get a discount on the live round should you want to go even deeper with ads in 2023, AND the self-study version of the course is the only way to learn ads from me without having to submit an application and be accepted. (I only accept about a third of the applicants I receive for each live round.)
Ads sound difficult. Shouldn’t I just hire an agency to run them for me?
Ads DO take time and effort to learn, but unlike other business strategies, you don’t have to cross your fingers hoping for sales. You’ll learn a system that will serve your business for years -- helping you to earn new customers at a profit -- and you get to be in the driver’s seat to decide how much to spend.
I’ve worked with 2 agencies over the past 4 years, during seasons when I felt too busy or understaffed to run my ads myself. Unfortunately, I had to fire both of them for poor performance.
An agency will cost you anywhere from $1,000-$4,000/month+, and many charge you 10% of your ad spend on top of that.
The second agency I worked with never even earned enough profits to pay their keep -- and this was after working together for 6 months.
A new ads manager who’s overworked, underpaid, and has 3 months of experience can never compare to the depth of knowledge you’ll get in 3 months with me -- andeven the best ads manager will never know your business like you do.
My experience with agencies is not unique. I have many six- and seven-figure business owner friends who have worked with ads agencies. Nearly all of them eventually fired their agency and brought their ads management back in-house.
What you'll love about the Ads Intensive is that with my comprehensive Ads Airtable system for creating and testing new ads, you WILL be able to hand off some of your ads work to a Virtual Assistant or other staffer, as needed.
I’m pretty busy during this time of year. Should I wait until the next round of the Intensive to enroll?
I recommend that you set aside at least 5 hours per week during the Intensive -- 1-2 hours to learn via the lesson and/or the slides + 2-3 hours to implement what you’ve learned. And truly, this is the BARE MINIMUM.
It IS an intensive program (hence the name!) but you’re learning a skill that will help you build your business profitably for years to come.
But here's the good news, even if you are entering a busy season, as a Self-Study Ads Intensive student, you can learn at your own pace and never have to feel behind. You'll also get FREE course updates every time I create new lessons and slides (this happens at least once per year).
You should also know that the self-study version of the course is about half the price of the live round of the intensive, and in my live round, I only accept about 1/3 of the students who apply to come learn with me. So truly, the self-study option is the only way you can be certain you'll be able to learn ads from me, and then of course I'd love to see you apply for a live round in the future to go even deeper on your ads knowledge. If you're accepted into a live round, you'll get a past student discount on the price.
I want to encourage you to stop spinning your wheels -- trying every single tactic for growth -- and instead dig deep on a strategy that will truly scale. I can’t wait to celebrate your success with you!
What if I want support and coaching after the 12 weeks of the intensive?
If you meet the criteria for applying what you learn in the Intensive and running profitable ads, you’ll be given an invite to my membership, which gives you access to a private Facebook group of alumni, group coaching calls 2-3X/month, guest experts every other month, and my ongoing support in the Facebook group.
The cost of the membership is significantly lower than the cost of the Intensive. It’s not about bombarding you with even more material. It’s about tweaking, refining, and getting feedback on what you’re already doing.
Friend, it's time to Scale your Business, and Take back your Life with the Ads Intensive.
