We rebuilt Smart Paid Traffic from the ground up to help you tackle the most urgent problems (and opportunities) facing media buyers in 2023:

How to adapt to Apple's ios 14 update

Over 50 new, how-to implementation tutorials

The most up-to-date Facebook ads course on the planet

hi, i’m molly!

And becoming a professional media buyer completely changed my life.

When I decided to learn digital marketing, I was a bartender in Kentucky and I didn’t even know what paid traffic was.

Today, I’ve overseen $100 million in ad spend and taught thousands of marketers how to improve their advertising and push their careers forward.

So how did I manage to succeed in a crowded industry that’s constantly evolving??

I got a mentor! Back in 2012 I started working with Ryan Deiss, who showed me the ropes and taught me how to think like a marketer. I spent thousands of hours sharpening my skills and millions of dollars running ad campaigns.

From there, I developed my 9-step traffic system and helped 4x the company on my way to becoming Vice President. (Not bad, huh?!)

But it wasn’t until I started teaching Train My Traffic Person that it finally hit me: while media buying is my craft — and I love it — teaching is my passion.

So in 2020, when Ezra Firestone asked me to be the next CEO of Smart Marketer, I jumped at the chance to make education a larger part of my life.

In the last two years I’ve mentored over 1,000 TMTP students and taught them how to succeed during this chaotic time in digital advertising. Despite new privacy restrictions, supply chain problems and increased seller competition, I’ve helped my students keep winning in this new era of Facebook.

Now, I want to teach you my proven traffic system so you can win as a media buyer in any industry or market.

Introducing...

Smart Paid Traffic

A streamable 12-week training program rebuilt from the ground up to beat ios 14.

All media buyers are different, and Smart Paid Traffic gives you the flexibility to complete this course around your busy schedule.

A show of hands: who wants to beat rising costs, diminishing returns & changing platforms?

I know I can’t be the only one with my hand up!

As media buyers, we rely on our ability to ROI on our ad spend — not sometimes, not that one time, but all the time.

iOS 14 will change advertising forever. In 2021, Facebook made the most dramatic changes to their platform in six years, and everyone — including me — is having to adapt…

And that’s a good thing! It means more opportunity for you in whatever market you’re in. But as we lose crucial in-platform data, most people will fail to see results.

Here are the biggest challenges media buyers face in 2023:

“I'm new to Facebook, and I'm struggling to get traffic or make online sales.”

“My ads were working, but now they're not! What ongoing maintenance should I do to keep my campaigns from going cold?”

“I don't know how to adapt to iOS 14. The strategy I was using to stay profitable is now obsolete.”

“My ads keep getting shut down! The volatility of Facebook is really hurting my bottom line.”

“I have a small budget. How can I run ads without losing a lot of money on trial and error?”

But when I give a consultation or start with a new client, I see that their real problem is almost always the same: a lack of process. Which is great, because I know that I can offer a solution:

Here is the structure that I add to their paid traffic strategy to help improve their results:

My 9-step Traffic System

And in Smart Paid Traffic I teach you this structure step by step, so you can profit from your ad spend no matter what else is going on in the traffic landscape.

All YOU need to do is commit to learning and implementing the material.

How does Smart Paid Traffic work?

Twice a year Molly teaches a live, 12-week mentorship called Train My Traffic Person.

But for students who are looking for an option that better suits their schedule — or who are currently unable to invest the full $2,997 — we also offer Smart Paid Traffic.

It contains the same training videos and course materials as TMTP (via recordings from our most recent semester) but without the direct access to Molly that the mentorship provides, and at the discounted price of $1,497.

What’s great about Smart Paid Traffic is you don’t have to wait for a new semester to begin; you can start right away.

Once you sign up, you will be granted immediate access to the SPT members area where the week 1 strategy session and Q&A recording will be waiting for you.

From there, you can go at your own pace.

Each week, you will receive the next training recording along with any resources, bonus lessons and Q&As. With no live calls to attend and no risk of falling behind, you can take your time and absorb all the material before moving on to the next lesson.

So to recap, here are a few reasons to consider Smart Paid Traffic

Start Immediately

Don't want to wait for the next semester of TMTP? Start learning paid traffic right now.

Set Your Schedule

You don't have to commit to any live calls of juggle different time zones.

Get All Course Materials

Perfect if you want all the strategies and worksheets from TMTP, but don't need personal attention from Molly.

Save Money

Because this course doesn't include the mentorship component, you pay $1,497 instead of $2,997.

Who is This Program For

This training is for anyone who wants to learn the art of paid traffic, or sharpen the skills they already have.

New Media Buyers
Avoid the costly process of trial and error. This course will give you an A-Z traffic training that will put you light-years ahead of most media buyers. (Lucky you! I wish I’d found this when I was just getting started.)

HEAR FROM TYSAN LERNER, A NEWER MEDIA BUYER

 
Advanced Media Buyers
This course is perfect for pros looking to sharpen their skills. You know how valuable it is to improve even one small part of your process, and I guarantee you will get a ton of new strategies to improve your ROI.

HEAR FROM ANNELINE BREETZKE, AN EXPERIENCED MEDIA BUYER

 
In-house
Whether you’re the owner or a team member, having a capable media buyer in-house is incredibly valuable. Without a profitable ads strategy, it can be almost impossible to grow; with the wrong one, you can make a lot of very costly mistakes.

HEAR FROM KELLI BHATTACHARJHEE, A BLOGGER & BUSINESS OWNER

 
Freelance / Agency
In my experience, most clients won’t give you a lot of time or many opportunities to start delivering the goods. TMTP will help you communicate better with your team, get bigger wins and keep more accounts.

HEAR FROM CAMILO PARRA, AN AGENCY OWNER

 
Ecommerce, Info, Services & SaaS
In my ad agency, I use this same exact traffic strategy for all my clients no matter what industry they’re in, so I can guarantee that the techniques in TMTP are effective in all of them. The content of your campaigns might change, but the forces of media buying don’t!
