Hello y’all! It’s Me Sean..

Today, I am bringing you some great valuable information. On how to get a high return on your facebook ads by just using instagram. I’m going to do this by providing proof from my own account. The Instagram ad data that is mentioned in this post, are from the dates March 10, 2018 to March 12, 2018.


My Instagram Ads Stories – And The Saga Begins

So, I may have mentioned in one of my earlier posts this week. That I just came back to my beloved online community. Yeah, I went fishing for like 2 years straight. It was pretty amazing.

When I was going strong back in 2012 – 2014. I used facebook ads very regularly. I remember when I first got started. How hard it was, and I lost money and time. Eventually through good research and tenacity. I found the secret to facebook ads back then and how to get them to convert. 

Well, Like I said, March 1, 2018, was my return to me posting my thoughts and the little knowledge I have, to my beloved online community. I got to work like a mad man. I had so much to share. Heck, just go look at my blog roll @

But Yet, still had a lot to relearn

Instagram ads stories

This time around I decided to sign up with wealthy affiliate .


Wealthy Affiliate is a online course for newbies and experienced bloggers, website owners, online marketers, affiliate marketers….  Their curriculum on how to build, manage, and get traffic to your site is unparalleled in the market today. I mean they have been around Since 2005. To have that kind of staying power on the internet,  you are doing something right.

But, The main reason was their website builder template and hosting services that drew my attention.

So I was off to the races, I bought 5 domains, 3 for me and 2 for my son. That Myself, and the Great Education at Wealthy Affiliate are teaching him. How to make money online, by building small profitable niche sites. Anyways, This first week I wrote three post a day, one for each site I was managing. I was setting up social media sites like for instance a facebook page for each new site. Well, after I had my sites with 7 plus post with pretty decent layouts. I had them connected to social media networks. Now what do I do?





Because, no matter how good my SEO is on my post it will realistically take me three months for a new site to make page one in google.


How do I get Traffic to my offer or a new site? NOW!

I looked into PPC (Pay Per Click) with bing, and google ads. HOLY COW! How confusing can you make an interface. Now bing was the easier of the two to understand. But google ads is just a waist of money unless you consult an expert that knows how to use their system to perfection. Otherwise you are just crapping your money down the toilet.


So, after a six pack and some reflection time down at the river. Fishing in my favorite catfish hole. It dawned on me that I use to do facebook ads with great success.(Of course after I taught myself how). I gathered up my things and mosied on home.


Immediately, I began my research into my new plan of attack. On how to get traffic from Facebook ads. I was lucky that my knowledge of facebook ads from my past experiences came in handy. I discovered some great ways to target an audience in facebook. 


Well, I paid less than $16 for 400 social engagements, 62 clicks to my offer, 12 conversions making me $132.17.  That’s sure one hell of a return. Here, I documented it all in this video(It’s over 15 minutes but full of great stuff). I will show you my proof and what tools I used to find the best audience for any offer out there. As Well as, I show you how to use the facebook ads site to setup your ad for instagram. 

 Here Is How I got a $16 ad on Instagram to make me $132.17  in less than 48 Hours

  7. Hey Sean,

    Great information here in this article. I have tried using Facebook Ads over and over but for some reason I keep snagging the worst audience. I think a lot of bots are present on Facebook and falsely engage with your posts. I thought your video was really great and informative. I definitely need to give these other methods some thought and try them out as well.

    Maybe choosing my audience better will lead to higher conversions.

    Thanks for the nice read!
