Using Facebook Ads To Drive Predictable, Repeatable Impact

The temptation of creating the next ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has organizations swinging for the "viral" fences. Yet for every Ice Bucket Challenge, hundreds of well-executed campaigns fail to reach critical mass. Why? Because campaigns are in an arms race to compete for the increasingly finite attention of constituents. As a result, campaign predictability is going down at the very moment accountability is on the rise for NPO and marketing leaders.

What if your cause campaign is too important to leave to chance? 

In this session, Jordan Ruden (Principal, Craft & Commerce) will show us how Bright Pink gave up on going viral and found success in building a data-driven, ad-supported impact model that inspired over 100,000 millennial women to complete a five minute, 18-question cancer risk assessment in 2015... and how it plans to bring it to hundreds of thousands more in 2016.

Jordan will share lessons for achieving hyper efficient, massively scalable and mission aligned outcomes, specifically:

• Thinking mobile-first when it comes to design

• Focus grouping your ads while they're in market

• Adopting an iterative, "fail fast" process to do more with less

Arrive as early as 6 to grab a snack and do some networking. The program will begin right at 6:30.  RSVPs encouraged, but not required.

    Jordan's presentation was helpful towards understanding the big picture of why use Facebook Ads. He was generous with his time giving an impromptu setup of the ads. His pointers for the novice user were helpful. Looking forward to placing some of the suggestions into practice.

    Are you still doing the remote broadcast? The weather forecast looks miserable tonight.
