Hey, so before we hit record, he said, uh, you know, you recognized a couple other people we've chatted with and, uh, I think that's kind of something interesting that you find when you kind of dive into the podcast world, regardless of which side of the mic you're on. I think it's called that you can run into. there's so much opportunity and there's so many people out there, but you kind of realize it's, uh, it's its own little world too. Yeah. Especially when you like really niche down to entrepreneurship, you see a lot of the same names and faces kind of popping up. It's interesting. Cause like we have our own little world, but yet we have the people that kind of continue to pop up in that world. So yeah, it was interesting to see a lot of the folks in there that I write. Yeah, I appreciate you jumping on. So, you know, the drill two questions, question number one is who are you and why are we listening to today? All right, well, I am the founder of StartUpU, you and the host of StartUpU podcast started UTV, uh, and that all kind of came to be because I had early success with my first venture when my, uh, my brother and I decided to launch a little side hustle. And that evolved into a multi-million dollar company within the next 36 months. By the time I was in my mid twenties and realized throughout that process, wow. They didn't teach me like how to do this. And despite the fact that I was at a very notable school university of Georgia go dogs by the way, national champions and right now, um, yeah, I just feel like there was so little application, both in life and formal education, not to disparage those, but that actually applied to running a business, especially when it was growing as quickly as we can. From year one to year two 48,000 to $500,000. I mean, it's ramping growth, right? Not no funding whatsoever. And so I kind of had this vision of what I would do after that, that business. And it really revolved around education. It really evolved around, I can't build every single business, but I can help people and indirectly create a lot of businesses. Uh, and so that's what we've kind of started to work on with startup you, and as we continue to serve people in the online space, both in all animals. Uh, that's the, there's a big vision as far as what we can accomplish doing that. Well, I want to dig...

Please welcome Bob Regnerus. Contact Info https://bobregnerus.com Bob Regnerus Facebook wizard. Thanks for jumping on learning from others. How are you? Hey, Damon. Good to be on man. Good. Look at you and your fancy background while the listeners can't see the fancy background, but you got a fancy background. I do I do it's yeah. It's a green screen with a nice blue background. So it leaves at least some of the cluttered office, uh, out of people's of you. So these backgrounds are getting fancy. I was actually on a call just a little bit before you and I jumping on and the person says, how do I get rid of the background? And I said, are you talking about you can't get rid of your background? He goes, no, no, no. That's not where I'm at. That was like, oh, that looks super real. Well, I love the ones where they're like on a beach or something. Yeah. Sit back in their chair and disappear into the ocean. That's always fun. Yeah. The stuff we never knew, we would learn in 2020, right? Yeah. All right, Bob. Well, why we listening to you today? What are we going? Hey, I want to talk about Facebook ads, but doing it for seven plus years, been in direct marketing for 22 years. So, um, let's, let's learn a little bit about how to make Facebook, Facebook ads work. Right. But not until I ask you a question number two, which is what do you suck at Bob? Um, well, I, I I'll give you two answers. Um, number one, I suck at it. So maybe that's just laziness, but like, thanks to this. My wife knows how to do it. Um, the other character I would say is, uh, I hate to lose, like, I'm a basketball coach, so like I'm just wired to win. So I'm a really poor loser, whether it's cards or I don't care if I like, if I lose a game or Rumi cube on my phone or something like I'm a sore loser. So I'll give you two floods. Do you legitimately suck at ironing? Like you burned stuff or you just don't like it. I can't do the process. Like I can't iron a collared shirt and make it look good. Like I can get a little bit of the creases out, but I actually create more creases when I do it. So like, thank goodness I got a spouse that like enjoys it. And, and also, you know what, I don't wear that many shirts that need to be ironed. So that's also, yeah. What, what, what type of age? Uh, basketball coach are we talking? High school, high school boys. So 15, 16 year old boy. Okay. All right. I'll let that one slide. I was going to say, are you like the aggressive seven-year-old coach? Oh no, I did. I've been coaching for 33 years. I started when I was 16 years old and I've done it every year since, um, I've coached anywhere up from five-year-olds up to 18 year olds. So boys, girls. Yeah, I am not a screaming idiot. Right? Well, let's talk, let's talk Facebook ads. So, um, why don't we, why don't we start with Facebook ads? 1 0 1. What is it? What's so amazing about it. Let's start with super basics. Yeah. I mean, Facebook obviously is, is where everybody is. Um, it, it's a media that people spend hours per day on. And so. One of our responsibilities as a, as a, as a business is to be in front of the people where they're at. And Facebook makes it really easy to do that. Obviously it's got its issues and we could dive into some of those, but Facebook remains one of the best places to reach your target audience in advertising today. Why is it such a good place to reach? Uh, what I like about it is you target people based on who they are. So you target at the kind of the user level versus keywords. Like if you doing Google ad words, right? Um, Google ad words, you're figuring out what...
