Hello, I am going to share with you a hidden gem you absolutely need to know if you run Facebook ads, Google ads, or ANY other type of domestic advertising.
If you are running ads consistently for 3+ months spending even just a few thousand, you may want to consider getting an American Express Business Gold Card.
Why? Well it’s simple. American Express gives you 4 points for ever $1 you spend in advertisement… Your next question, WTF is a point? 10,000 points is equal to $100. So if you spend $5,000 in ads per month you get back 20,000 points for doing nothing. Believe it or not, it doesn’t just stop there. You actually get a welcome bonus of 50,000-80,000 for just signing up for the card.
Last year within 7 months I hit 1,000,000 reward points putting all my adspend and product costs on my American Express cards (different cards give different multipliers). I was able to travel 10 times in 1 year to several different countries, all first class.
So my expenses roughly are $20,000/month in ads so 80,000 in reward points along with almost the same amount for product costs (also has a multiplier with American Express Platinum Business). It is important to note, do not use a credit card if you are irresponsible with your finances. You should charge the amount to your card and pay it back without holding a balance.
This is an absolute value-bomb I think for anyone who is running or thinking of running Facebook ads. Because if you ever become a big spender you will fly for free for the rest of your life, get unlimited free Ruths Chris, and like a ridiculous amount of other stuff paid for by the banks.
