Episode 6: Dennis Yu, CTO @ BlitzMetrics on How to Create Facebook Ads That Drive Real Results


While most advertisers think that Facebook isn’t on their team and is disqualifying their ads, Dennis Yu knows that they’re the ones inadequately using the system. Because for a long time, he was one of the ones cheating the system.

Now Dennis is the CTO of BlitzMetrics and has changed his relationship with Facebook; they pay him to launch campaigns to test their beta ad products.

In this episode, Dennis explains the future of Facebook, how advertisers should leverage Facebook profiles, and why doing less with the backend of campaigns leads to a higher ROI. They also discuss whether media buyers are potentially becoming obsolete and why it is better to be more hands-off when you are running an ad campaign.
