Video Cliff Notes
After setting up HYROS give HYROS 2-3 days to track your funnel and collect enough data.
THEN load up a report with the best practices below
-Try to load up at least 2-3 Days Of Data
-Ensure you have the following columns activated. Revenue, Reported, Reported vs Revenue.
– The “Sales” column refers to individual sales, NOT orders. If a customer purchases 4 products in a single order then there will be 4 sales inside Hyros. To view the number of total “orders”, make sure you load the “unique sales column” inside your report.
– Check all columns to see which metrics are important to you, and hover over the title of each column to read about exactly what they mean if you are not sure.
-Used the advanced features button on the board to view only ONE ad account at a time. This will make reading your results much easier. If you do not you will display your entire business all at once.
– You can also use the advanced features to filter by a specific store if you have multiple stores on the same account, just use the “!action” tag unique for that store in the “filter leads with tags” filter.
– When reading your sales in deep mode after clicking on the “details” button inside the report, you will also have the option to group all sales by order or product. . E-commerce orders often include multiple sales so this will help to better organize your data.
Step 3.1 : How To Quickly Edit Your Ads Using HYROS
Note: The UI of the Hyros app has changed since this video and the following videos, but the steps remain the same.
Please also take in mind that the “Adset ID” and “FB Campaign ID” Columns mentioned in this video are consolidated into a single “Ad ID” column, which will display the ID of each source (including campaign, ad set and ad IDs)
Step 4 : Using This Data To Scale
Video Cliff Notes
When scaling webinar ads use these rules of thumb
#1 : Scale ads based on ROI first
Many times business owners turn off ads just because they appears to not be doing well in ad platform reporting. Be sure to make sure these ads are not generating sales before turning them off.
Also look at the revenue and ROI columns for this.
#2 : Make sure to scale ads based on their TRUE SALES ROI
Many time Facebook and Google will miss sales. Use HYROS to find ads that are UNDER REPORTING sales.
Compare your REVENUE and REPORTED columns to see what HYROS caught VS what your ad platforms caught (REPORTED). If they have a good ROI, scale them!
Step 5 : Using This Data To Save
Video Cliff Notes
To save a ton of ads use these rules of thumbs
#1 : The easiest ads to turn off are those with no sales on your ad platforms or in HYROS.
You can finally stop guessing and turn these off. Find ads with no sales on HYROS or on FB/Google and turn them off ASAP!
#2 : Google and Facebook will mis credit sales
Watch out for ads reporting sales in the wrong places. Google and Facebook can easily take credit for each other OR organic sales.
