Claire Pelletreau was just starting to grow her side business as a Facebook ad and marketing consultant when her full-time job disappeared. Desperate to land enough clients just to pay the bills, she was disappointed at how difficult it was to find real tactical advice that would help actually her get paid month to month. The Get Paid Podcast is Claire’s attempt to pull back the curtain on the reality of running an online business. All these people pulling in “six figures” - how are they ACTUALLY doing it? What kind of money do they take home after expenses? What are those expenses, anyway? Are they truly “solopreneurs” or are they supported by a team? What does that team do for them? How are they marketing their offerings and growing their lists? How long did it take to get to where they are? You’ll discover how different entrepreneurs get paid and what it costs them to bring in that money.

Now she’s back on the Get Paid Podcast to talk about how her business has changed, the numbers that every business needs to keep an eye on, making a profit on a tiny list, and how sexy she finds Doctor Phil. 

“If you can't manage your revenue at 5k a month, you can't do it at 35k a month. It’s a skill you have to learn. Just because you go into business doesn't mean you automatically know how to manage cash flow.” — Melanie Miller

240+ Precise Interests You Can Use In Your Targeting


Today's episode is brought to you by a Google spreadsheet. People tell me all the time that choosing Facebook and Instagram ad targeting makes them want to throw their computer out the window and I don't blame them. There are a ton of options and that makes it easy for you to flush money down the Zuckerberg drain. So, I put together a big old list of what Facebook calls ‘Interests’ for you and a totally free spreadsheet separated out by niche. I also created a short PDF that explains how to go about using those interests so you don't waste a ton of time putting together your audience. 


Take the guessing out of Facebook and Instagram ad targeting.
