The short answer is just to spend $1 per day on several ads, particularly video ads, as they resonate best to warm up your audience to know, like, and trust you.  It takes several touchpoints with you and your brand for someone to get to the point where they are comfortable investing with you.

Neilsons conducted a study a few years ago where they found that if a potential buyer watches even just ten seconds of your video, they become 72% more likely to invest with your business.

The type of videos and/or posts you create will depend on which phase your potential audience is in their journey through the investigating and buying process.

The three phases of the buying journey are:

  1. Awareness
  2. Consideration
  3. Acquisition


At the top of the funnel, consumers become aware of a problem they have coupled to a desire for a different outcome or desired end result. They begin to seek out potential solutions and research them.  This is when they first come across your product or service. They will likely be turned off if you merely tell them to buy like everyone else.


As the potential customer moves down the funnel, they begin to evaluate different options. They investigate potential solutions at a deeper level. You should have several materials, including videos, articles, blog posts, lead magnets, mini-trainings, webinars, etc., to help them evaluate during this phase. You become their go-to expert when you help them get a few steps closer to their end goal. 


This is the final stage where the consumer makes a purchase. Make it easy for them to invest with you because a confused consumer will not invest with you.  Give them a simple buying guide or a mini-webinar to step them through what they will get, why it will help them, and how to get it.  It also helps at this stage to give them some added value to make the purchase decision now rather than wait until later.  Procrastination can be a big factor for many people at this stage and you want to help them overcome their procrastination.  Some extra bonuses, a coaching call with you, or a discount code can all be helpful.

Marketing Strategies For Each Phase of The Buyer Journey

Awareness Stage


This is the initial stage where potential customers become aware of a problem they have or a need that requires fulfilling.


     - Limited knowledge of potential solutions.

     - Searching for educational content, customer reviews, or expert opinions.

     - Start to recognize the need and potential products or services to address it.

Marketing Strategy 

     - Produce informative and educational content.

     - SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) strategies to improve visibility for broad-topic searches.

     - Build brand awareness via social media, PR, and other broad-reach channels.

Consideration Stage


At this point, potential customers have clearly defined their problem or need and are actively researching and evaluating the available solutions.


     - Looking for comparisons, case studies, or product-specific content.

     - Evaluating different products, services, or providers to see which fits their needs best.

     - Engaging more deeply with brands, such as signing up for newsletters, attending webinars, or downloading resources.

   Marketing Strategy:

     - Provide content that showcases your value proposition.

     - Engage potential customers with deeper-dive content like webinars, whitepapers, and case studies.

     - Use retargeting strategies to remind them of your solutions.

Acquisition Stage


Here, the potential customers have decided which product or service they want to go with, and they are ready to make a purchase.


     - Searching for purchasing details, such as pricing, shipping, or installation.

     - Reading customer testimonials or seeking final reassurances before purchase.

     - Making final comparisons and seeking any promotional offers.

  Marketing Strategy: 

     - Offer promotions or limited-time offers to entice the buy.

     - Ensure a seamless purchasing process, whether it's in-store or online.

     - Provide excellent customer service and support to answer any last-minute questions and facilitate the purchase.

Business owners need to recognize and cater to the needs and behaviors of potential customers at each stage, ensuring a smooth transition from one phase to the next.

What Types of Content Should You Be Making For Each Phase?

Awareness Phase

In the “Awareness Phase,” I like to create videos containing approximately two-thirds motivational and aspirational content and one-third light educational content.  

In this phase, your audience learns about potential solutions to their problem.  They may even learn more in-depth about their problem if they don’t fully understand it. 

Help them understand themselves and their problem and potential solutions better than they understand it themselves, and they will begin to trust you and your ability to help them.  

In this phase, you let them get to know you better. At the same time, you're helping them get a little closer to their desired outcome.

Consideration Phase

In the “Consideration Phase,” I recommend creating videos a little longer than in the Awareness phase; approximately 5-9 minutes is the sweet spot.  

Also, post summaries or trailer-type videos with a link to a Blog Post or YouTube video work great in this phase.  

The idea in this phase is that your potential client is just starting to get to know you, and a little more in-depth information that furthers the topics you started in the first phase is perfect for this level of the relationship. 

Then, place a direct CTA (Call-To-Action) on your Blog Post or in the description of a YouTube video to download a lead magnet.  

Great lead magnets will help them get something done quicker than they could on their own.  

Whatever you offer, ensure it helps them get a few more steps closer to their desired end result, but just don’t overwhelm them with too much detail; otherwise, they will become exasperated and give up before going to the next phase with you.  

Checklists, a guidebook, templates, calculator tools, and spreadsheets are all great examples. 

Think of the assets you personally use in your own business as part of your SOP (Standard Operating Procedures).  These are the tools and templates you would provide your staff with to do their jobs more efficiently. 

Acquisition Phase

In the “Acquisition Phase” I recommend slightly longer videos and or value posts leveraging the PAS (Problem, Agitate, Solution) or AIDA (Attention, Interest, Desire, Action/Acquire) type marketing copywriting framework. 

In this phase, your potential clients are looking for a final solution and potentially for a partner to help them implement it. 

A trailer-type video or longer value post with a CTA (Call-To-Action) to a webinar or book a meeting type offer are great for higher ticket offerings or straight to a sales page with a buy button for lower ticket offerings. 

The idea in this phase is to move them into action by investing with you.

How To Set Up The Dollar A Day Ad Strategy

Bookmark this page and come back to this section each week for an update on how to set up the ads in each of the phases.  I will be providing some training videos on the setup as well as updates on my own progress and results.

For now, you’ll need to ensure you have proper tracking pixels in place for your Blog/website and Custom Audiences set up to build audiences of the people taking action on your videos, SM posts, and Blogs.

I recommend starting with three simple Custom Audiences;

Target Audiences for Awareness Phase:

These audiences will be the largest and most broad audiences.  In my own testing, I’ll be targeting my local area with no interests as well as interests for small business owners and local business marketing.

Target Audiences for Consideration Phase:

These audiences will be people who watched most of your videos and/or clicked to read your Blog Post or watch your YouTube videos.  I will be testing audiences who are designated “ThroughPlays” by Facebook.  Throughplays are audiences that have watched either all of your video or at least 15 seconds of it.  Don’t ask me why they have such a large variance haahaa.  I only do this initially because a) audience sizes are small until you have done several videos, and b) as per the Nielsens Study above, if someone watches even 10 seconds of your video, they become 72% more likely to invest with you. Once I have built up enough views over several videos, I’ll switch this audience to people who have watched at least 50% of the videos in the “Awareness Phase”.

Target Audiences for Acquisition Phase:

This audience will be people who have watched at least 50% of your longer videos from the “Consideration Phase” and/or people who have clicked to your Blog and not bounced.  For example, build an audience of people who spent at least two minutes on your Blog Post.


We have leveraged the marketing strategy that we refer to as the “Prime & Remind” strategy for several years with great success. 

We developed this strategy was developed after researching the Neilsens Study that concluded that potential customers are much more likely to invest with you after they watch your videos. 

In fact, they are 72% more likely to invest even after watching only 10 seconds of your video.  

Now, imagine the power of deploying several little videos in each of the three phases of the buyers journey outlined above.  

Then SUPERCHARGE those videos with Dennis Yu’s Dollar-A-Day Ad strategy.

It’s still early in our testing of Dennis’ Dollar-A-Day Ad strategy, but out of the gate, his style ads are performing powerfully for us and for a much lower investment.

Although the jury’s still out, we think his strategy will likely be the winner.

My wish is that your journey along with me testing this new (for us) advertising strategy will be helpful to you.

With the right tips and tricks, this strategy can be used to great success.

As with everything we do, it will take a few tests to get it working like a finely tuned instrument, but we believe it will become a powerful ally in your marketing arsenal.

Remember in all we do;

  1. Always be testing
  2. Results trump everything
  3. Success loves speed

Best to your success in growing your business!
