Hi, I'm Depesh Mandalia and like you, I run ads on Meta/Facebook's platform as I've done since 2012.
In June 2021 some fun things happened.
Finally, Apple crushed a big part of what makes Facebook advertising so powerful - they limited the pixel's ability to track users.
And Facebook were waaaaay too slow to respond.
If you saw performance drop or consistency change, you were not alone.
95% of advertisers saw an impact, me included.
Despite having millions in Facebook ad revenue experience behind me, I had to change the way I advertised on Facebook or face moving away...
But hundreds of thousands of advertisers didn't change - agencies scrambling to add new traffic channels to their menu of options to attract new clients because they can't make Facebook ads work.
Ecommerce businesses shifting focus to platforms like TikTok, Snap and YouTube to try overcome the losses they were making with Facebook ads.
Knowing what was coming up (because I was one of the first to share a full report and action list in in Jan 2021 on the upcoming changes to Facebook) I had already put a plan into place.
I wanted to continue making Facebook ads work for us.
And it did. In a big way.
The sales number below is from a store that suffered the most with the iOS14.5+ changes in May 2021.
They went from *seeing* 3-4x ROAS (return on ad spend) in their ad accounts to less than 2x almost overnight.
Yet by the end of 2021 we broke the 8-figure revenue mark for the first time with them. How?
