Davey, Jesse, Ryan, Till Agency: Troubleshooting Your Funnel

We always try to say don’t fix what isn’t broke, which applies to many things in life, but is applicable to ads too, because you may think, “Oh, I can get my CPM lower by trying a different audience.” Well, that audience may click all day long, or they may be supercheap to reach, but they don’t convert. So you’ve fixed your CPM, but you’ve sacrificed
your CPA. So if your CPA is good, don’t worry too much about the rest of your funnel.

About Davey and Ryan…

Davey’s superpower is making connections—whether it’s relationally (the kid loves to network) or connecting ideas. He obsesses over problems until they’re solved, and can’t help but constantly be testing out and learning new things. 

We call Ryan ‘The Engineer’… mostly because he’s actually an engineer who has managed complex civil projects that result in roads and highways that thousands of drivers depend on each year. But also because he’s the one building campaigns, studying metrics, and putting together reports.
