  1. Great video!! I'm actually thinking about starting with YouTube ads over Facebook ads. It would be awesome if you did a comparison of the 2 platforms. Love your content. Please keep it coming.

  2. My ad's are only getting clicked on Youtube, primarily mobile. I feel
    like people accidentally click the ad when they try to X it out and its
    not converting at all and I'm just wasting money. I tried to figure out
    how to exclude Youtube all together, but it doesn't even give you that
    option. Any advice?
