In April 2011 a childhood friend of mine and I set out on a journey to create a small little story telling business. We loved stories and we found the perfect way to share them. It’s hard to believe that our simple passion has turned into a multi-million dollar idea.
The day our video hit YouTube, the phones started to ring and they have not stopped since.
I want to discuss the importance of storytelling and how you can use it to change your business. (more…)
I have been in business for 10 years and I have found one simple secret to running 3 multi-million dollar businesses. I am going to give you that secret a little later on, but I want to discuss a couple of things first.
I have to confess, my businesses are not perfect. There is nothing that frustrates me more than losing a client. We have lost our fair share because we did not perform. We were not able to do what we said we were going to do.
Did we give it our best shot?
Of course we did.
But the reality was, our best shot was not good enough. The service we provided did not get results. Leads did not come in and sales did not go up.
I have to admit that some of them did not have the best product. A great product is critical for success, but it is still not the number one thing.
Because of our failures, the client have had to shut their doors.
Just the other day I received a phone call from a business desperate to make sales. I talked with him about his product and discovered that he was failing to create the one thing that matters.
He has also come to the conclusion that if things do not change quickly his business venture will become part of the statistic.
So what is the #1 reason businesses fail?
Lack of Leads.
Companies are in business to make a profit, and can only make a profit if they provide the products and services that their customers demand. Meeting these demands means that they are able to generate revenue to keep business going and to even expand it. This is where generating sales leads comes in, because if companies are not bringing in new customers, then they will not be able to grow and will, instead, begin to stagnate.
Qualified leads are the foundation of any business especially in the beginning stages.
Here is how you generate a lead.
Let’s say you have product or service that is really good or at least you think it is. The market will solidify your thinking over time, but until you make enough sales you really do not know if you product or service is any good.
There comes a point, where a good product will have enough traction to generate sales automatically. But, to get there, you have to craft the perfect message and then deliver that message to the right audience.
If they are interested they will call, buy, or leave their contact info. That is a lead. Someone who has heard your message and is interested in what you have to offer.
Without leads, a sales team cannot be successful. Therefore, generating good leads is just as important as refining your pitch or closing well.
A lead has the potential to turn into a sale, which will turn into cash. Without cash you can’t pay your bills.
So, what can you do to produce more leads?
Here at Yinc our job is to produce leads. We have systems in place that generate leads on demand for most businesses. It’s a process, but when you have 500 leads a week coming into your sales force, good things happen.
Our top 4 sources of lead generation.
1. YouTube In-Stream and In-Display ads
YouTube is a great source of leads as long as you create a compelling video and be strategic in your ads spend. We pay around 12 cents a view and a view is only counted if the viewer watches past 30 seconds.
2. Gmail Video Ads
Eighty-one percent of shoppers conduct online research before they make a purchase. Sixty percent begin by using a search engine to find the products they want, and 61 percent will read product reviews before making any purchase. On average, a consumer will visit three stores before making their purchase.
Consumers love to research and shop. Which mean that Gmail can serve up ADS to those who are looking for your product or service. We like to target our competitors keywords and websites within gmail account. This can be a very effective for most businesses.
3. Video Remarketing
When a future buyer watches your video or visits your website, you will want to retarget them. That mean you will want to serve them up other video ads and banner ads for a couple of days. Amazon does it, and so should you.
4. Facebook and Instagram Video Ads
There is huge potential with Facebook and Instagram. We have been able to take business with a $20 a day budget and drive them multiple leads. There are a whole combination of ads you can run with Facebook and Instagram. Try it!
Obviously, we have other avenues, but that is a great place to start.

Best Practices for RLSA Ads and How To Create RLSA In Adwords
I wasn’t really planning on creating a best practices guide for RLSA ads. It just kind of happened because I saw a huge need for it. There were a couple of nice articles out there, but nothing explaining the basics.
I wanted to educate myself and learn a little more about how RLSA ads work and why I should be using them for my business. I thought I was running them, but it turned out I was not. That hurts, because they provide a huge benefit.
The more I searched the more confused I became. Google’s own guide and YouTube tutorial videos were terrible and have zero value. Even after I created a couple of RLSA ads I blew $150 dollars in a matter of minutes. I set them up wrong and I assume it has happened to thousands of other people. I want to prevent you from making that same mistake and make you a genius in the process.
So let’s get started.
What are RLSA Ads and How Do They Work?
First let’s define what RLSA stands for and how the ads work.
I thought RLSA ads were just another term for remarketing on the Display network, but that’s not the case. RLSA stand for Remarketing Lists For Search Ads. There’s a big difference.
A Remarketing Display ad can show up all over the internet as an image, gif, or html graphic; an RLSA ad shows up as a text ad in Search.
They are just a normal search ad that is created for your remarketing lists.
Watch the simple tutorial video where I explain the big difference between Search and Display remarketing ads.
Create Remarketing List
Step one of RLSA is to create remarketing lists. You can do this through Adwords or use your analytics account. These list are the foundation to your RLSA campaign.
Once you have your remarketing lists set up, it’s time to watch our 2nd RLSA video. We will actually show you how to set up a campaign.
Bid Only vs. Target & Bid. What RLSA settings should you use?
As you can see by the screen shots below you have 2 different bidding options. The Target & Bid option are more restrictive while the Bid Only option is loose and can cost you a lot of money quickly. I made this mistake and within 20 minutes I blew $150.
That is the price of a massage. ☹
Basically, when you choose Target and Bid the ad will only show if the person types in your keyword and can be found on your remarketing list
Bid only will show your ads if the keyword or the remarketing list are used. It’s an “Either” option. A lot less restrictive and can cost you a lot.
Not that you understand how RLSA works and what to watch out for, it’s time that you test the waters.
Pay per click ads can get extremely expensive, especially if you find yourself in a competitive industry.
Here are a couple of strategies you can use with RSLA ads. The idea is to cut down on your cost per lead by only running ads to people who have visited your website. Especially if you are in and industry where your cost per click is +$50. Wordstream analyzed the most expensive keyword categories for online advertising and found that keywords related to Insurance, Loans, Mortgage, Attorneys, and Credit were the most expensive with advertising costs ranging between $45-$55 per click.
That hurts! They could be spending $10,000 dollars to capture one customer. A way to lower the cost per customer is to drive huge amounts of traffic with social media and then run PPC ads with RLSA. I will test this in the coming weeks.
Drive traffic to your site with social media
Create a RLSA campaign to all visitors
The second strategy I like to use is the one I spoke about in the RLSA video tutorial. Why not run funny and engaging ads on your competitor’s keywords. That way if one of your website visitors decides to go elsewhere they will see a funny ad calling them out. This goes along with our brand, so it works great.
“We caught you cheating” “What are you thinking” “Come On Back”
Now it is your turn.

[Start of video RLSA Ad words. Remarketing Lists For Search Ads Explained. Part 1]
[Beginning of recorded material]
Jace Vernon: Okay, so real quickly I’m going to show you guys the difference between a standard display remarketing campaign and in RLSA remarketing, which RLSA stands for remarketing list for search ads. Okay, so as I kind of explained above is I got really confused with this, which I shouldn’t. I do a ton of Ad Words. Well, the other day I started to run these new RLSA ads. They are not that new, but to me they were kind of new, because I’ve been doing all normal display ads. Okay, so I’m going to show you the main difference between a standard RLSA ad and normal display ad. So first off, whenever you’re go into the search engines, let’s say you search for something- I put video marketing company right here. So, let’s assume that somebody comes to my website, down here where you type in video marketing company and they visit my website.
Now I’m at the website. Now, let’s say that this same person turns around and says, okay video marketing production. Got it? Now, we know that they’ve already been to my website. Now they type in video marketing production. Well, if I’m doing an RLSA ad I can run an ad right here to those who’ve already visited my site. So, this is a typical search ad. These guys are all doing search ads, but if I wanted to I can come back in here and say okay Google, I know that I already visited this site, or somebody already visited my site, I want you to bid higher on that keyword if they visited my site. That’s an RLSA ad. Okay. So, that’s not your typical search. Most of the time when somebody comes to your site you will cookie him, then you will run him a standard display ad. Let’s say you’re over on, this is a good one- KSL.com. So right here, this is a display ad right here up at the top. Okay, now that’s normal remarketing. The biggest difference between RLSA ads and standard display remarketing ad campaign is you are able to run these search ads that are up at the top. So, I hope that makes sense. Just remember, you can run them search ads and you can bid higher, because they already came and visited your site before. So, I hope you can see the power in that compared to your normal just standard display ads. You know they’re already searching for a second time or third time for that keyword, so they’re in the shopping cycle.
Okay, I hope that makes sense. If you have any other questions keep reading. Down below we’re going to actually do a video on how to set up RLSA campaign. So, stay tuned, or jump over to the other video and we’ll get started.
End RLSA ads video 1
[Start of video RLSA ads Part 2 Tutorial Video for RLSA ads]
[Beginning of recorded material]
Jace Vernon: Hey guys, it’s Jace over here at Yinc marketing and we are going to go into part two of the RLSA ads series. So, if you haven’t seen Part 1 yet, you might want to jump over there and take a look at the Part 1 video, where we discuss what is an RLSA ad and what is the difference between an RLSA ad and a standard remarketing display ad. Real quickly; if you’re not going to go watch that an RLSA ad is remarketing list for search ads. Okay. It’s a little different.
So, I’m going to show you how to actually set one up. So, jump over here to my dummy campaign and right now I am going after certain keywords. So, this is in your Ad Words account. If you don’t have an Ad Words account, you need to have one. If you don’t really know what a search campaign is, you better learn what one is so you can set this up. So, right now I’m going after YouTube agencies, YouTube for business YouTube business, so you can see my keywords. Well, if anyone goes to my website for these keywords, well I’m going to cookie them. Okay. Now, when I cookie them what happens is I can start running them display ads. But this is a little bit different. I’m not going to run them display ads. What I want to do is make sure that if they Google any of my other keywords that I’m going to bid higher; that I’m going to increase my bid on those keywords, because I want to be at the top. I know they’re interested, I know they’re shopping I know they’ve seen my website and they’ve been there and so if they search any of my keywords, I want to make sure I’m popping up on number one spot in the search campaign. Got it?
So, click over here on audiences. Okay, you’ll see I don’t have any. I’m just going after search. You can add your audience here. Let’s pick the YouTube marketing company. We’re going to go to Add Interest and Remarketing- Remarketing lists. There is a bunch of remarketing lists. We’re going to go Home Page Visitors. So, once I have those added in I’m just going to click save. Then, here is the thing; you want to increase your bid by 10-40%. Okay. If you’re just starting out, don’t get too crazy. Just say, “Hey, I’m going to increase my bid by 20%, 10%. I’m going to increase my bid here by 10%.” Now, that’s pretty simple to do. All you did was jump on one of your search campaigns. Then you went ahead and added these audiences up top. So, you click on audiences and you start adding your remarketing audiences. And there are so many different remarketing audiences that you can create. You should be collecting everything you can about your visitors.
Okay. Now, if you’re not getting any impressions then you can go back here and increase this up to 20%. So, you’re just saying Google if they come back and search any of these keywords; so if they’ve already visited my site and they search any of these keywords, I want to make sure I’m biding up to the top page or number one spot, because I want to be seen. Now, something else that you can do with this, which I screwed up the first time I did it is you can create a whole other campaign. With a whole other campaign you’re able to target like your competitors. You can target people; you can really get a dedicated message and let me show you what I mean. So let’s assume; let’s go back here into Add groups. I’m going to create a whole other campaign and I’m going to show you a big difference on this. So, let’s go Search Network. There’s a key, that’s going to save you a lot of money, because the first time I set up this RLSA ads I blew $100 in almost 5 minutes on nothing. They were actually junk sites and it was kind of a screw up, but at the same time Google does not explain nor they got out there and really said hey, you guys- like they’ve done no really good tutorials, I guess it’s what I’m trying to say. I could not find anything, hence the reason I’m doing this tutorial.
So, I’m going to call these RLSA video ads. I’m going to do all features. I don’t like to do anything off of the search network. United States is good. I’m actually just going to go United States. And just teasing, I like Canada. Okay, the manual CPC is fine. We’re going to change this in a second. I’m going to go my default bid $3, budget go $100 per day. Now you can do all your site link extensions, which you should do. Add in all your… So, add these in. Now, I’m going to come back and do all this so I don’t have; I do it here, so I don’t waste your guys’ time.
Okay, so basically what I’ve done is you have to go in here and create an ad. Now remember I am going after my competitors, so this is just a remarketing campaign that’s going to focus- a remarketing search campaign that’s going to focus on my competitor’s keywords. Okay. You can see, kind of the ad that I created here said “Shame On You. Wrong Company”, because I know that they just search for somebody else’s business, and they’ve been to my site. Okay. So, if I know they visited my site, well I’m willing to kind of go out on a limb and do a call out on the actual ad. So, it’s just a little different. It’s not just going to say Video marketing company. I’m talking to them directly like “hey, what are you doing searching for another company?” Got it?
So, you go down here, and now in this one you can be broader. Okay, once again we’re targeting people who have already been to our site. So, normally I would put quotes, I’d put brackets, just because I want nothing but phrase match or exact match. But I don’t have to do that here. I’m just going to put video marketing company; video marketing agency- now obviously I’m going to go all the way down through here. Normally, I never do this. I don’t just let them pick my keywords for me. I’m pretty strict with what I allow Google to do, but for the sake of time we’re just going to throw those in. Okay. Now, obviously after I increase my bid if I want to go after these, here is the key. This will cost you a lot of money, if you don’t do it, if you don’t do it quickly. Like right now, Google can turn around and just start throwing these ads up, because I haven’t added my audience. If you go in here to your audience and say, okay, I’m going to add now my RLSA ads. So, I’m going to go down here and say okay, I want all website visitors- you have to have 1000 or more. Like I said, this is kind of your dummy account be the way. I’m going to leave that red like that.
Now, here is- I jumped over. I’m going to go back so I can show you how to get there. Down here there’s something that says Bid only, or Target and Bid. If you create your campaign on its own, you have to select Target and Bid. If you hit Bid only, your budget is going to be blown on a bunch of junk keywords, because you know how we went broader on our keywords, we’re a lot more broader than we normally should. Well, if you don’t click Bid Only, Target and Bid Only, you’re going to show up for everything. So, you’re basically, when you click this you’re telling Google, hey Google, they have to search my keywords, but on top of that they have to be on my list. Okay. If they’re not on my list, you don’t show them the ad. So, it’s just a really good way to know that you’re target now.
Now, obviously my keyword that I chose was video marketing, bit on top of that this is for my competitors’ keywords. So, I’m going to go back in here and put all my competitors: pixability… Let me think. Well, first off what I’m going to do is grab all these guys’ video explainer. Copper fish media, Brand the global. So, I just go over here in- going everywhere. Copper fish media video explainers, Epipheo studios, Pixability… I just know some of these. I’ll go down and put a list of probably 50 of my competitors. Got it? And I save that. You need to go back and you see I underbid all of these keywords. I need to go back and actually adjust all the bids.
Okay. So, I hope that helps. That is a simple tutorial on RLSA ads. Remember you will waste a lot of money especially if you’re over here on your search. If you do not click, like on your standard search one, your audience right here you can adjust your bid to increase it. Now, you can see my targeting settings are Bid Only. That’s okay, because the keywords that I’m using are extremely restrictive. I’m not just going after YouTube. Like if I just put the word YouTube there, I would show up, I mean my budget would be blown in a matter of minutes. Okay.
So when you create your own search ad, you’re not going off of one you’ve already built. When you’re developing your own like this one over here on the left hand side, remember your target settings need to be Target and Bid. That means it has to match both your keywords and be in your audience. I hope that helps. Like I said, I wasted money on when I first did this.

Guide To Remarketing Lists For Search Ads and RLSA Best Practices
Get excited because I am going to show you how you can set up a Remarketing campaign with your YouTube Videos. Video remarketing is a great source of leads which turn into customers.
Watch the tutorial and let me know if you have any questions. We would be happy to help you with your Video Remarketing Campaigns.
Here is the video transcript generated by a computers. Please forgive spelling and grammar.
Good morning everyone? I am excited because in this video we’re going to discuss a little bit about video remarketing. I noticed a lot of people have questions on this, plus you really can’t find a lot of material out there that discusses how video remarketing works and the different things you can do with remarketing. Like uploading different lists. So, I’m just going to walk through it real quick and then I’ll get this video uploaded so you guys can check it out.
Here are a couple of images to show you what the different lists look like
So first off, I’m sitting on my YouTube channel. Obviously, I’m going to use my stuff just to show you how we do it. So, first off- I’m going to use Ydraws’. I’m going to go to Ydraw’s YouTube channel. Okay, so here is a bunch of videos. Obviously, on your YouTube channel make sure you have your website connected to all your social media, those types of things. But, if you look at all your videos you can see we have tons of videos uploaded. So, if you’re a business and you’re using YouTube, and you’re uploading videos, well the best thing you can do to get the most out of them is actually track the different people that use those- that watch those videos, so that you’re able to run them a different video.
So, let’s assume that you’re an attorney. Okay. You’re starting to shoot videos once a month. Well what you can do is target… You can upload your video and then when somebody watches that video, you can cookie their machine, and when I say cookie that just means that you’re putting a little code on their browser that then allows you to market to them. So, you can run them a display ad; you can run them a banner ad and you can run them different video ads.
Let’s say on month two you upload a new video, well at that time you’re then able to run that video as an add to whoever watched your first video.
So, over time you can collect these big audiences that you’re able to market to. For example, let me go show you. So right now I’m on the actual Ad Words account. you can go here and go to YouTube users. So, once you have your Ad Words account you’re going to link it up to your YouTube and then basically you can track your channels. So, here’s all your options. You have ‘viewed any video for my channel’, ‘visited a channel page’, ‘viewed any video as an ad’, ‘liked any of my videos’, ‘commented on them’, ‘shared any of them’, ‘subscribed’. I mean it’s kind of freaky that you’re getting tracked like this on YouTube, so if you’re doing any of these things on YouTube you are getting cookie.
So, let’s say ‘viewed a certain video’- I can go in here and build a list. Says, okay, if they watch let’s say Dr. J. They watch this video. So, right now there are 125 people who’ve seen that vide. So, I can call this Dr. J video. I’m going to keep this list for 150 days. Open, open, include users from the last 30 days… Okay, so now I click save. Now, what I’m able to do- it’s building it right now, it’s updating. This video right here, I am able to run an ad to anyone who watches this video now. So, let’s say I open, let’s say I do another video that’s like this Dr. J that people like. Well then, I can just click on this and run anyone who watches this video another ad of another video, and it’s cheap. You’re talking it probably cost me $.10 a view which they have to watch out past 30 seconds.
Okay, so those are just a couple of options. Let me go down through here and just check out some of the list that I have going. Okay, ‘Viewed’, see on this one? It’s similar; this is something else that is pretty popular. You can see I have a list right here of 100,000 to 300,000 viewed my ‘Wait, wait, wait’ video. This is a similar audience.
Not only can I target those who watched it, like the people who’ve seen it, I have 190,000 on there, but I can build a similar audience where Google will go out there and say okay we’re going to build you an audience that looks like the same people that watched your ‘Wait, wait, wait’ video and then you can then advertise to them. Same thing here, ‘Viewed City video’. I got a similar 100,000 to 300,000. And you can’t run them a search ad yet. I actually think they are going to be updating that, but you can run them YouTube ads. You can run them display ads.
So, if you have any questions let me know, but that is kind a how YouTube remarketing works. The gist of it is you upload your video. You then build a campaign that cookies anyone who watches that video, so that then you’re able to run them adds when you launch your new videos. So, it’s just another way to keep track of your customers and you have to emphasize it is cheap. It’s not expensive to do these things. Yes, there’s a lot that goes behind, lot that goes on behind the doors that we don’t see. It’s all computers doing it, but it’s very, very effective. So, if you have questions, let me know.

If you would like to check out some of our other blogs here is a simple list of must reads
I did a presentation the other day for SLCSEM.com on video marketing. One of the tip I like to teach is how you can run video ads to your Linkedin contacts. One of the members asked if I would show him how to export his Linkedin contacts and upload them into Facebook and Google custom audiences.
So here is a video on how you can export your Linkedin contacts to Google and Facebook custom audiences.
The video transcript. Forgive bad grammar and spelling errors this is done by a computer.
Jace Vernon: In this video we’re going to discuss how you guys can export your LinkedIn contacts into your Google Adwords custom email addresses, and also into your Facebook custom email. So, it’s just a way for you guys to take everyone you contacted or people who you’re trying to get a hold of in LinkedIn. You can take all of those contacts export them into Google and Facebook, and then you’re able to run video ads; you are able to run different kind of advertisements to them.
So, example, I use this to contact some executives and CEOs of a certain companies. Let’s assume that you want to get a hold of the CFO of the business. Well, a lot of times they’re hard to track. If you know that they need your product or service a good way to do it is to become friends with them on LinkedIn, or become friends with a bunch of people in their business on LinkedIn and then go after them that way. Create an advertisement or a video exactly for that business, and then export your LinkedIn contacts and then start running them ad.
Okay. So, I’m going to show you how you can do this. First thing you’re going to do is get your LinkedIn contacts. Go over here to LinkedIn. Click on My network. Go to Connections. And here are the connections I have. So I have to 6768 connections. Then go in here and say happy birthday to any of them. Click on this icon over here, the Settings icon and then put Export linking connections. We’re going to do it in a simple Microsoft Outlook export. Got it?
Okay. There is going to be a lot of information that you do not need on this and that kind a messes you up. So, I will go in here and I will delete everything I have, except for the email address. Now sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. You may not need to do this but I just do it to be safe. Okay. So, now I have a list of all of my LinkedIn contacts right here. I may go up here and save this list. Okay, now I have my list. It’s all nice and safe. First thing you’re going to do is jump over into your Google Adwords account. Go down to the left-hand side; I’m going to scroll down so you guys can see this a little better. Left-hand side, you see a Shared library; click on Shared library and then here are your audiences. Click on View the audiences. Click on remarketing lists and custom emails, and put LinkedIn contacts. There we go. We’re going to No expiration on this. Another cool thing you can do with your LinkedIn contacts are you can build audience, similar audiences. So, once you get that audience out there, you can do a similar one. Got it? So, uploaded in, and of the 6562 email addresses 99.98% are good. And you’ll see that it will take them a bit to start building, but now you’re able to advertise on search; you’re able to advertise on YouTube, display on Gmail only.
Okay, So, I talk to you guys about Gmail ads. If you want, you can go check out my other Gmail video at How to run Gmail video Ads or just Gmail sponsored Ads. So, those are all my other tutorials, but you’re able to market to this list through Gmail. So, once there we won’t into have us created all the ads, but that’s how you get your list into Google.
Now, let’s jump over to Facebook. Go to your Ads Account. It will go… Okay, you’re just going to go up here to audiences. Click on Saved audience. I’m teasing, I’m teasing, sorry. It’s a Custom audience. You’re just going to use custom file. Choose a file. Import from Mailchimp; obviously we’re going to choose a file that we want. Click here. Upload that same file that you just uploaded. Now this one, you can put phone number, date, first name, last name, zip code, all those other things, but I’m just going to use the email addresses for now. Then click next. So, it uploaded 6519 rows. There, my audience is created. Done. So, it’s not ready yet. It actually takes Facebook a little bit to update that audience, but same thing here, you can upload this audience then do a similar audience, or a look alike audience, and you’re able to run ads to them.
Okay. So, that is it. Pretty simple. If you have any questions let us know go to ydraw.com or marketinghy.com. We have a ton of other video tutorials if you want to check them out on Gmail ads, on video ads. Mainly we like to focus a lot on the different video ads out there. We think it’s a huge opportunity.

I am always preaching that people should skip college, listen to Podcast and watch YouTube Videos. You will learn more. It’s a great habit to get into especially if you are running a business. Podcasts can keep you focused and inspire you to keep moving. Plus it’s fun listening and learning about the struggles, challenges, triumphs, and successes that others are going through.
So here are…
The Top 10 Marketing Podcasts that are worth your time.
Growth Everywhere is a lot like The Top. Eric interviews all types of Entrepreneurs. They give you a lot of little tips you can apply to your business. I also like the fact that Eric interviews people who are just starting out.
The Social Media Marketing podcast is hit-or-miss for me. They have some good content, but I have to pick and choose what I want to listen to. They hit almost every social media avenue, so it’s a great start if you are looking to get an overall view of all things Social Media.
If you are running a SaaS business you have to listen to this Podcast. Jason Lemkin is all about getting you from $0 to 100m Annual Recurring Revenue. (ARR) It is jammed packed with ideas and great interviews.
If you have no idea what SaaS stands for, get in line. I probably heard this term for 2 years before I even knew what the word meant. SaaS stands for Software as a Service. Now doesn’t that feel better?
