Optimize Facebook Ads For Kickstarter Board Games With This PowerShell Script

January 13, 2021

Setting up ads might seem like a lot of work and can be a daunting process when starting out. That is why we have created a Windows PowerShell script to automate the whole process.

If you want to do a deep dive into what PowerShell is, you can read Microsoft’s white paper here. Once this script is running and your ad is established, you can duplicate and tweak it to meet your future needs. 

This is a simple script that has some advantages and disadvantages you need to know about.

PowerShell Script Advantages

Since the script utilizes simple keyboard inputs such as tab, enter, and space, you can use it on any computer or screen size. If you want to look at the script before running it, right-click the .ps1 file, Open with, Notepad. This way, you can verify that there is nothing sinister in it before you run it (it’s a very simple script). 

This script mimics what we do for our clients when we set up and run a Facebook ad in their business account. This is our starting point to Kickstarter board game ads and has been tried and tested. In fact, we have helped our partners raise over $2 million in gross sales through Kickstarter in 2020 alone! 

PowerShell Script Disadvantages

Since the script utilizes simple keyboard inputs such as tab, enter, and space, if there are any additional tab keys required to access buttons, the entire script will be thrown off. 

There must be no error messages or Facebook update notifications on your screen when running the script. 

You will also need to keep your mouse cursor at the top of the screen and not move it when it is running, as this can have adverse effects on tab key inputs.
