How to Fix Facebook Ads Inconsistencies (Shopify Dropshipping)

Hey everyone, Gabriel here and in this video, I’m gonna be talking about how you can deal with Facebook, Ads inconsistencies and what to do when you just aren’t able to get consistent results with Facebook Ads.

So this is one of my stores here and, as you can see today, it’s at 1.7 K in sales. But if I go back to the start of the year, you’ll see that in January I was doing bigger numbers with this store so yeah.

So the start of January, you can see that I was doing about 5k all the way up to 10k a day with this store, but then it quickly started crashing down, and then there was Chinese New Year which I was scaling down for and now I’ve been Trying to bring it back up to the levels at which it was at before so 5 to 10k a day, and you know I’ve been dealing with a lot of inconsistencies, and so I want to show you guys how I’ve been dealing with them and still managing To gradually keep on scaling to at the point where it’s now at 4, 5k a day on average, and so that’s what the video is gonna be about, and let’s just get right into it first off.

I want to talk about why these Facebook Ads inconsistencies happen because it is normal and once you understand why it happens, then you’ll be much better equipped to you know, take action and fix it.

So the first reason: why is that Facebook Ads is an auction platform which means that there’s a lot of external factors? And so you know it’s. Naturally, it’s not going to be consistent, because some days, you’re gonna have more advertisers bidding towards a certain audience. There’S all these external factors that you can’t control, because it is an auction platform and I’ll talk a little bit more about how the auction works. But that’s the first thing you need to know is that, just because it’s an auction platform, there’s going to be a lot of inconsistencies now. The second reason is that there’s not enough ad space proportional to the amount of advertisers that are currently advertising on facebook, and that’s why you can see facebook rolling out all these new placements.

You know Instagram story, marketplace placement and they’re almost forcing you to use those placements, and the reason is: is that there’s just not enough room on the Instagram and Facebook feed for the amount of advertisers who are trying to promote on there, and so the result is That it’s very, very competitive and only the best ads, the best advertisers get to advertise because there’s just not enough room for all the advertisers, and so the result is that campaigns fizzle out. If you don’t win enough auctions, if you aren’t, if you, if you don’t deserve to win the auction, if there’s advertisers doing better than you in that same auction, your campaigns will fizzle out and you will not get consistent results.

Now I pulled up this image from Facebook to show you how the auction actually works and basically they rank ads based on a total you.

So this total value is what’s used in the auction and how they calculate this total value is a mix of advertiser bid.

So this is how much you’re bidding so, if you’re doing the lowest cost bidding, which is the standard way this doesn’t this isn’t really a big point of focus for you, because it’s gonna bid, however much it needs to so the second. The second component is estimated action rates.

Now this is basically your conversion rate, and if you know, if you look into detail, it actually shows you what their estimated action rates are, and so the first one is estimated click-through rate on your ad and the second one is the estimated click to conversion rates.

So if you’re optimizing for purchases, they’re gonna measure, the click to purchase rate and so they’re measuring they’re measuring this estimated action rate right away as soon as you start running your ads and then if they see that it’s good, you know this is gonna Help your total value and you’re gonna win more auctions if your estimated action rates are bad. That means that your total values gonna go down and you’re gonna stop winning auctions, and this is when you can’t paint fizzle out now. The third part of the auction is the user value.

This is you know the user experience on Facebook.

This is one of the most important parts 12 to Mai’s for as well, because this is what Facebook really cares about at the end of the day. Is that their users have a good experience and how you measure this user value? They give us a metric for this and it’s the relevant score.

So you know if you have a high relevant score. That means that your user value is good and that’ll help.

You win more auctions. If you have a low, Rev relevant score, you know your user value won’t be good and it won’t.

You know you won’t win as many auctions now.

This is it’s a mix of all of these three things right.

It’s not only one of them, you don’t. If you have a good relevant score, it doesn’t mean that you’re gonna win a lot of auctions.

You need to have all of these in place. Usually, what happens in my experience? What I see happening is that the estimated action rates aren’t high enough and then you don’t win enough auctions and your campaigns will fizzle out.

So that’s how the Facebook auction works and now that you understand that we can get into how to deal with these inconsistencies.

So the solution is basically to test more, do more testing new ads and new audiences and the goal of doing this is to find matches of ads Plus audiences.

So you want to find ads that match a specific audience. That way, you can get a high user value so highly relevant score, and you can get the estimated action rates that you need in order to get consistent results and the only way you’re going to do. That is to test a lot of different audiences and creatives and find the right match between the audiences and the creatives.

So what you can do is if you’re experiencing inconsistencies. If you have an audience that was performing well before so you had, you know a look-alike audience. The cat took our look-alikes, for example, that we’re doing really well or a specific interest.

Then you should test that audience with new ads. If your ads aren’t consistent test that audience with new ads and try to find a good match of audience and ad and then once you do, that you know, and the relevant score is a good thing to keep track of, but also just the estimated action rates That you’re getting are people clicking through on your ads and are people purchasing through your ads and when you find a good audience and AD match, that’s when you’re going to be able to get consistent results so yeah. If you have an audience that was performing well before test it with new ads and if you have an ad that was performing well before test it with new audiences, I wrote here. Small changes can make a big difference. So, just a different ad copy write like a different headline in your ad copy that can appeal to different audiences, which will you know, create a different click-through rate. It’Ll, get you better relevant scores and basically a better audience ad match to help you win more auctions. Another thing that you should be testing when you’re getting inconsistencies is testing new angles and that gets thrown around a lot.

You know test new angles, but a lot of people don’t understand what that means and what it means.

It’s basically focusing on a different pain point or a different emotional benefit of your product as the main thing that you’re promoting in your ads right.

So that’s the main angle of your ad and you want to test different angles. So, for example, if you’re selling a posture corrector, which is really popular product, if you’re selling a posture corrector, the obvious pain point is poor posture right, so you could have ads running.

You know improve your posture, fix your posture, something like that and then, if that’s stopped working really well, you could test a different angle. So, instead of you know posture, you could talk about the health problems that come with poor posture right, so relieving back pains. Instead of improving posture right, that’s just an example of testing a new angle testing a new angle can make all the difference like I said, and then you’ll get you’ll, get different, estimated action rates and different relevancy to the user, and that can make all the difference. For your ad, so this is definitely something that you want to test as well now, this one here new ad formats.

This is also something that can make a big difference, so I showed you at the start in my store, how you know it was doing 5 to 10 K a day.

Then it went down to about 1k day and now it’s doing 4 or 5 K a day again.

What I did the main thing that helped me get back on track was testing new ad formats.

So in the past I was testing only the long format.

So you know forty thirty to forty second ads. Thirty to forty five seconds, I decided to test a short version of that ads, so I made an ad that’s only 15-second fifteen seconds long before it feeds right still four feeds but just shorter. So, instead of a forty-five second video, I tested a 15 second video and that performed a lot better, and so I was able to scale that ad and that’s one of the main odds I’m working with right now.

So you definitely wanna test different ad formats. Right see how your audience reacts to a long, video versus a short video and when something is working, you want to double down on it.

Now this is obvious, but when you find an audience creative match, so you find an audience.

That’s performing well with the specific creative.

That’s when you really want to double down on that, and you know start scaling that, because you won’t find that many perfect audience creative matches. But when you do, you should really scale it and you won’t be.

You won’t feel a lot of resistance. Scaling is something when it is a perfect audience. Creative match right if you’re struggling to scale something that’s usually not a good sign. That means that you probably need to test more and find a better audience creative match to scale.

So I wanted to add this into the presentation, so this is my higher key of testing, and this is basically all the different things that I usually consider testing ranked in the order of the impact that it can have on your results.

So the first one is your marketing angle, so the main pain point or value proposition that you’re focusing on in your ads, so changing this testing.

This can make the biggest difference in terms of your results now. The second thing is your video or image ad right.

So testing a completely different video or image. Obviously, this is going to make a huge difference and I put in brackets krill stopper, because I talked about this in a lot of my other videos, but when you’re testing different videos, all you really need to change. A lot of the time is the scroll stopper, and that can make a really big difference now, like I just explained on the slide before testing completely different formats of testing, you know a shorter video format can also work very well, and so this also goes in That category so testing a different video or image ads.

That’s the second most important thing in my experience now number three is thumbnails. Thumbnails can make a really big difference, even though most platforms have autoplay on for videos. Testing different thumbnails can still make a really big difference for those people who don’t have autoplay on number. Four is your ad copy? Your high copy can make a big difference, especially the first line of your ad copy, but you know I put it number four, because it definitely doesn’t have as big of an impact as a different video or a different marketing angle. Number five is the headline on your ad.

This can make a big difference as well and number six a CTA, your call to action so testing.

You know shop shop now versus learn more.

This can make a very small difference, but it’s enough of a difference that it’s something that you should consider it testing, alright everyone, so that is pretty much it for this video now before I end it, I want to quickly give you an update on my course. Econ blueprint and for those of you who haven’t heard about my course yet, basically, I show you exactly how I started and scaled a new store to over a million dollars in sales in just five months, and everything is case study based now it’s been just over A month since I launched the course – and so I want to show you some of the results that people have been getting inside of the private group, because it’s really it’s incredible, so this guy here was able to scale a store to over 50k a day.

You know which is insane because he was saying that just a few months ago he was losing money and you know he was just starting out and dropshipping and in total I think he was able to do over 400k and just like one or two months. Something like that, and eventually he got his PayPal account limited, and so he had to slow down a bit and now he’s working on fixing that but still crazy success story. Another one here, eight K a day.

You know these are all inside of the econ blueprint. Private group, so that’s the private group that comes with the course 112 k in fifteen days. Ten point: seven K in one day and this one here the month of February notice how sales started to increase significantly, just after Gabriel released his course.

So you can see this is when I released the course and his skills really just his sales, really just skyrocketed after that and this one here.

So he posted a video showing his stats and he did over a hundred thousand dollars in 30 days with 45 percent profit, and he was following exactly the blueprint that I share in the course.
