We’ve updated the audience a few times, we don’t let our ads get exhausted, we are AB testing, retargeting, doing everything we are supposed to and leads aren’t coming in…This is the most over asked, vague question but what the heck else is there to do?”

Kaitlyn shared, “Hey Carnitas! My coworker got an email from Ulta with a limited time sale and once the time frame had passed, she went back to the original email and saw that the image had updated to reflect the sale was over. WHAT! Does anyone know how they did this??”

1- recs for good free platform to make them in
2- how do I upload them
3- how do I ensure my clients can find them easily
