Course FAQ

  • 1. How advanced is this course? I already run Facebook ads, will there be anything further for me to learn?

    The course is advanced. We are sharing the combined insights of some of the most experienced Facebook advertising professionals; there will be plenty that is new to you and that you will be able to apply in your day job. Many of Europe’s largest Facebook spenders have been on this workshop and benefited from it. Some of the more advanced topics we cover include bidding strategies, tracking capabilities and optimisation, including consideration of LTV and maturity curves.

  • 2. Is this course suitable for someone with no experience of running Facebook ads?

    We do cover the basics but very quickly. If you are willing to invest some time in some pre-reading (we can give you some tips) and have a good head for data and analysis then you should be able to follow the majority of what is covered and benefit accordingly.

  • 3. How can I justify the cost when there are so many free online resources?

    Would you drive a Ferrari without being able to drive? Of course not. So why take the risk with your advertising budget? A good way of looking at this is to compare the investment for this workshop to your media budget. If you’re spending a tenner a day then maybe its not worth it, but if your budget is into the hundreds or thousands per month then efficiency gains from techniques you learn from Hatch could generate a return for your business way in excess of the cost of the course.

  • 4. We get free training from our agency and/or media owner - why would we pay for it?

    An agency is typically incentivised by how much you spend and keeping your business in the long-term. The money you spend on a platform goes straight into the media owner’s pockets. Hatch offers a truly impartial view on how to maximise your investment from your chosen media channel. The real question is whether you can afford not to be up-to-date with the latest best practices in Facebook marketing.

  • 5. What verticals is this relevant for and do you focus on direct response or branding?

    We tend to focus more on direct response than traditional branding and we work examples from a variety of verticals, including ecommerce, travel, finance and mobile apps/games. That being said, anyone who runs Facebook ads driving to some kind of downstream event, whether that be a sale or a like, will benefit from our structured and data-fuelled approach to teaching Facebook advertising.
