Hi! I’m Jenny!

After more than a decade in digital strategy leadership roles for brands like IFC and MTV,  I founded my digital marketing consultancy, Good Help, Co. in 2017 where I've planned and managed +$20 million in social ad campaign spends.
I quickly realized that my clients didn't just want me to build their social advertising strategies, they wanted to learn the strategy themselves. Dozens of corporate training sessions and +500 webinar attendees later, I decided to make this material more accessible by creating this online course. The approach taught in this course has been tried and tested with big brands and small businesses alike — and it works!

Nice words from our students:

“Thank you so much for presenting such a comprehensive workshop - it's the best I've ever come across, and I've been trying to learn more about paid social for at least a couple of years (all of my experience is in organic social)."

- Alina H., Social Advertising 101 Webinar Attendee

“Jenny is an excellent and natural teacher. Even if you don't work directly in media strategy, it's still a great resource for being a better cross-functional partner to the media folks in your orbit."

- Krystal P., Social Advertising 101 Webinar Attendee

“Thank you, Jenny, for taking the time to put this together. I have been learning social ads for the past three months and you have put all the pieces together.”

FAQs

Which social media platforms are covered?

I teach paid social strategy through the lens of Facebook and Instagram, since these platforms are typically the primary focus of our clients' spends. The strategy principles you'll learn, though, are applicable to every social ad platform (LinkedIn, TikTok, Pinterest, Twitter).

How is this course different than other courses online?

Many other courses skip straight to tactical instruction with a focus on launching campaigns quickly and diving into platform nuances. This course is focused on teaching the core strategy you need to know to build profitable campaigns on any platform, first.

What else is included in this course and what format is it taught in?

The course is video and audio recorded over slides. There are clear visuals, straight forward bullet points (no jargon) and step-by-step walkthroughs on everything from strategy to Ads Manager. You also get all of the custom planning templates I've built for my clients, including:

  • Social Advertising Media Plan (for creating a high-level strategy)

  • Test & Learn Paid Social Campaign Blueprint (you'll launch your first campaign with this)

  • Ad Creative Assets Planning Template (for organizing all ads needed for a campaign)

  • Live Campaign Tracker Template (makes monitoring performance and campaign pacing easy)

How do we beat iOS and algorithm changes?

Building your first party data is now more important than ever. For many of our clients, growing email lists through social ads is a primary or secondary goal of our media spend. Email has long been one of the most valuable marketing channels and even prior to iOS updates, we have typically included email list growth as a key component of our e-commerce and B2B clients' funnels.

How much budget do I need for a thorough test?

We recommend a minimum of $500 in media with a focus on upper/mid-funnel objectives. With this media spend, we can test multiple audiences, platforms, placements and creative — giving you a solid performance blueprint you can use to evaluate paid social's role in your funnel and build out a higher budget campaign.
