HarperCollins Publishing is one of the largest book publishers in the world, releasing 10,000 titles each year in the U.S. alone.


HarperCollins Children's Books and HarperCollins Global Team approached us with a question (several actually). How do we effectively (and efficiently) train our entire team to optimize our Facebook advertising campaigns and build warm audiences all year-round?


We leveraged years of running effective Facebook and content strategy campaigns for our own clients and implemented our "818 Training Initiative" to help train up their C-suite and larger exec teams to run ads in-house. We did the following:

- provided an audit review for the Facebook campaigns they were already running — as well as a content review
- helped to clearly define their Facebook strategy, best practices, leveraging video, structured testing processes, media spend levels, and building audiences
- conducted numerous on-site, hands-on training sessions & Q&As for their teams based in the U.S. and abroad


  • A complete and scalable FB ad system that they can continuously leverage
  • An approach to building warm audiences all year using content + Facebook and IG's targeting tools
  • A customized vision for pre-order book sales
