Vidya Ravi is the perfect example of someone who is living the principles of the Law of Attraction. Vidya’s success story as an FB Ads Strategist started with reading a fantasy book.
Vidya loved reading so much that publishers and authors started sending her ARC’s (Advanced Reading Copies) to review them before publication.
Her reading hobby led her to a publisher looking for marketing and tech experience. Vidya already had a job as a Computer Science Engineer and thrived on tech, all she had to learn was the marketing side.
“Opportunities are everywhere. I loved reading a lot, it’s not that I was going to get a job around it. I already had a job and was happy. Reading was my hobby.” – Vidya Ravi
One opportunity led to another and here she is, a successful Facebook Marketing Specialist, with a background as an Engineer and extensive sales funnel experience, producing outstanding results for her clients.
What impresses me most about Vidya’s story?
That at each turn, she has chosen to focus on doing what she loves.
What makes Vidya so successful as an FB Ads Strategist?
She loves reading storybooks and she’s a born storyteller – hence the name of your company, StoryBird Ads.
And, that she really cares about her client’s success. Vidya is an introvert who says teaching is not her forte, yet her clients see her as a Business Coach.
Find out how Vidya took her unique set of skills and passions and created an online empire that’s barrelling towards the 7-figure mark, in this interview.

How to Work with Vidya Ravi, FB Ads Strategist
After this interview, I know for certain that I’ll be placing my faith in Vidya Ravi and her team to reach a laser-targeted audience once I’ve created my signature course or coaching program.
Vidya understands that coaches are usually not salespeople and that her job is to grow their coaching practice. She cares about her client’s success and has helped a number of clients grow to 6-figures and even 7-figures.
Vidya’s clients say that her FB Ad Campaigns produce potential clients who are already warmed up and looking to work with them. Which frees them up to do what they do best, coach their clients, rather than sell to them.
I learned a lot about Vidya from watching these client testimonials.
Christin and Dr. Michael Bummer of The Forever Diet
Christin and Mike speak about how Vidya has helped them succeed in a highly competitive niche (Health and Wellness) because she is invested in their success and how she’s helped them rise up in a highly competitive niche (Health and Wellness). They see her as not just a Facebook Ads Strategist but a Business Coach.
Shonnie Lavender – Parent Coach
Vidya helped her strategise and create a funnel for her “Stop Shame” coaching program, planning out a webinar and ads. They helped set up the sales funnel, found the imagery, wrote the ad copy and set up a bot to give people reminders.
It Shonnie’s her best launch ever and the first time she was able to generate a sale on the webinar. Shonnie was able to sell to existing clients and also reach entirely new people, growing her circle of influence.
Kristen Miller of Practical Mommy
Kristen was totally blown away by the sales audit Vidya did on her Facebook Ads account.
When I asked Vidya how to start working with her, she said that an audit was the best place to start.
If you decide to start working with Vidya afterwards, she will discount the money you spent on the audit as this is something she includes in her service when she works with new clients.
