    I've gone even further than gender; I've targeted by race.

    To clarify, I didn't actually change the copywriting itself. But I did change the creative.

    Context: online makeup subscription company, Facebook ads. I parsed out custom audiences for Black, Asian, Hispanic, etc and each ad group sported identical copywriting, but the image was a beautiful woman of the same race as the audience.

    Within the first 1.5 hours, the Asian cohort became profitable. Pretty cool!
