I remember it like it was yesterday.
Eighteen years ago I was sitting at a wooden desk in a quiet classroom packed with a bunch of 2nd graders, trying to solve as many puzzles as possible, and hoping to win the local competition of Mathematics.
It was exactly at that moment, staring at a task of diving a square into three equal parts, that I suddenly realised the purpose of my life – becoming the very best Facebook advertising specialist the world has ever seen!
Okay, maybe not exactly…
In fact, even after I successfully won the 2nd place at the competition, finished high school, and graduated from the University of Nottingham with a degree in Mathematics and Economics, I had no idea where the world would take me. But I’m thrilled to be exactly where I am today – working as a self-entrepreneur and helping international companies grow their businesses with Facebook ads.
And how did that happen?
My passion for social media began almost exactly seven years ago when I created my first Facebook page for AIESEC Nottingham – a global students organisation I was part of.
I remember how naive I was back then, thinking:
“Cool, now let’s just invite some friends, share a few posts, and wait for results to fly in!“
As you can probably guess, that didn’t happen – I started with no likes, no comments, and no shares.. but with a lot of frustration.
And somehow, that frustration led to an obsession.
I found myself spending more time reading articles on social media than attending lectures at university. I was downloading Facebook page reports, analysing the spreadsheets, looking for any insights that would get me more results.
Fast-forward five years and I’m still obsessed with that kind of data. Just not on the Facebook pages, but in the ad accounts.
For the last four years I’ve been specialising in Facebook advertising: first, working in a motorcycle tour agency in New Delhi, then joining a social media agency and later a startup in my home country Lithuania, and now continuing as a self-employed Facebook advertising specialist.
During this time, I’ve helped companies spend over $1,000,000 on Facebook ads, generate thousands of leads for my clients and their businesses, as well as helped a bunch of projects achieve the hall of fame of crowdfunding, like raising $1,119,029 and €4,809,548 on Kickstarter in just 30 days.
As for what I’m doing now – I will be travelling across South East Asia for the next six months and will continue with helping businesses use Facebook ads to drive concrete results.
Although I don’t know if I’ll be able to take on your project as well, maybe I could at least help you during a one-on-one consultation where we’d go through your Facebook advertising campaigns and discuss any questions or problems you might have.
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and feel free to say hello in the comments below or on my Facebook page.
Cheers and talk soon!
