Got a really jam packed interview today talking with Mojca Mars, all about social media but more specifically about Facebook and Facebook Ads Funnels.
We spend a bulk of the interview covering how she’s built her social media consulting business and how she was able to find even more focus. Mojca started being a social media management generalist and ended focusing in Facebook Ads, where there’s more value, better clients, better budget, etc.
Mojca is based in Slovenia, so we spend time talking about her experience building an audience and networking in the US, where most of her clients are based. We dig in how she managed to get her first connections and paying clients coming from overseas and basically starting from nothing, but doing it very quickly.
Mojca shares good tips about Facebook Ads Funnels, what’s working today, how to use retargeting, how to get webinars, strategies about Ads image design, video ads, and many more tips.
[2:00] How Mojca founded Super Spicy Media after her former employers didn’t want to enter the Facebook Ads space. The progression from being a generalist to focusing in Facebook Ads.
