Rich Watson

Founder & Senior Facebook Strategist, Augmented Hype

Rich Watson

Founder & Senior Facebook Strategist, Augmented Hype

DESCRIPTION

Rich Watson is an augmented reality marketer who has been working with Facebook ads for over 7 years.
Since April 2021, the Facebook marketing world has been turned on its head with the release of Apple's iOS 14 update. The brands that have survived are the ones who already built a strong relationship with both new and existing customer bases. The brands that haven't survived failed to leverage the platform at a top-level marketing channel.
The fundamentals of marketing have always remained strong within paid advertising, while the algorithm's ability to pick the right customer out for the advertiser has fallen away.
Facebook marketing is now solely about building a genuine relationship with your customers by providing them valuable tools or products to solve their problems and a community of like-minded people to support them.

Allowing Ricardo to make his first money flipping cigarettes per piece to afford his weekly burger.
