Show you guys, maybe why they haven’t, worked and show you guys how to actually make those work. So I’ve worked with now over the last 18 months or so. I’ve worked with over 3,000 small business owners, primarily working with real estate agents, mortgage brokers and other local business owners, and also in the last 18 months, I’ve been able to go through and generate 1.5 million dollars in revenue strictly from Facebook Ads.

So guys, If you kind of heard like mixed opinions and reviews and all that stuff, like I don’t know if they really work or not work And all that good stuff, They work, They work amazingly. Well, You just kind of have to have the right person to break it down and explain it to you. So I hope that I’m that right person today, and also if you guys, want my free at Facebook Ads mini course. It’s a $ 97 value.

All you got to do is drop a comment down below and also, if you don’t mind, give this article a thumbs up If you’re brand new here my name is Jason Wardrop. I specialize in lead generation Going through and growing your business marking your business online, so make sure you got you guys subscribe to the blog where we launch new articles every single week. Helping you go through and Generate more leads grow, your business and all that good stuff.

So you guys do want that Facebook as mini-course drop a comment below give it a thumbs up and Let’s jump into things guys, Let’s break down. Why maybe you’re not having success with facebook ads Or if you’ve heard other people saying like? I don’t know Facebook guys don’t really work now. This is the typical story of what people do they’ll go through the creative Facebook page, Which is obviously pretty easy, because it’s a hundred percent free it takes about 30 seconds, go set it up.

They’ll go through They’ll make a post. If we come down here to one of my more recent posts, So this is my my pin pulse up here at the top of my page They’ll go through to make a post like this one right here and they’re like okay. I want more people see it because I want to generate leads. I want to make sales or whatever it might be, and then they’ll come over here. Like Oh boost pulse like that means it’s going to and more people are going to see this so they’ll click on this.

It is really easy to go through and Set up this post be boosted so that more people in your community or in your target audience are going to See this okay. Now, if you’ve done this before and you’re like Jason, this just does not work at all. I tried it, I’m didn’t get any leads or whatever you’re exactly right. Okay, Now, if you go through and you click boost post and click boost right here, Facebook has so much data on all of their different users, So they know which users are more likely to.

Like and comment on, a post, which ones are more likely to become leads, Which ones are more likely to buy something online or those even more likely to read a article okay. Now, if you click on boost post, you click boost right here on this little Facebook post and you target two People in your local community or people in your target audience It’s going to go through and show your post two people are more likely to like or Comment on that Facebook, post, okay, so That’s probably not what you want You probably are looking to generate, leads You’re, probably looking to make sales.

Obviously This is really good to get a lot of exposure on that post. But if you’ve kind of gone through – and you haven’t seen results, that’s probably because this is exactly what you’re doing and Facebook’s just showing it to the wrong people, because You know it’s not your fault. You just didn’t know that that’s who they go through and show it to right. So, let’s jump over here to the Facebook Ads manager, and I want to show you guys how to set this up So you’re, actually showing your ads to the right people based on what your objectives are, whether it’s to generate leads make sales or, if you do Want likes and comments, Or if you want people to view your article or whatever it might be, so you can see right here.

This is just a test account which I’m actually having it shut down here, because I don’t really use it, But just for the sake of this example, what we’re going to Do is come over here to create a campaign so that green button right There is to Create a new Facebook advertising Campaign. Now, if you went through and you made a post on your Facebook page so, for example like this one you still can use, You still can use this post by setting up things on the back end.

Can I’ll show you guys how to do that here in Just a second okay? So if we come over here, It says: what’s your marketing objective right now, remember How I said when you click boost post. That only is going to show people more likely to like and comment on your post. Well, look at all these other objectives right here: okay, So and awareness – that’s just going to get you tons and tons of reach kind of similar with this one right here or the consideration Traffic.

That means, if you’re, trying to get people to click to your website, to your blog or you just want people to go to a certain destination online engagement right here, this one’s just like the boost post, that’s going to get more people to like and Comment on. Your Facebook post app installs. Obviously, if you have a mobile, app They’re going to get more app, installs article views, people reading your articles and you can go through and say hey.

I want to shoot people that, or I want to target people. Okay, that are going to be reading three seconds of the article Ten seconds. The article 50 percent of the article 95 percent of article and the cool thing is actually You can go through and create custom audiences by how much people have readed of your articles. Now I Cover all that in detail in my facebook as mini course. So, as I mentioned earlier guys, if you guys want that, make sure you Guys drop a comment below thumbs up the article and I’ll share that with you guys as well so Um also, we have lead generation, okay, now lead generation.

This is using. Facebook lead forms. Okay, It’s a little perform that when they click on your poster, your ad, it’s going to pop up – And it’s going to have you know their name phone email. The cool thing about this: is it Pre-populates with the information that Facebook has on file? So if you kind of done stuff before and you’re like man, I’m getting bogus Lee’s or whatever, This is a very good option to consider to eliminate a lot of the the bogus leads like you know, test at gmail.

Com Or no bet note com or something like That right and then messages This is kind of tying in with Facebook’s messenger platform, which is really cool. You can have that engagement instead of following up via email or text. You can follow through Facebook message and then conversions. This is what I actually really like. I use this a lot. This is going through and using a landing page now, if you’re kind of like Jason, I don’t really know the difference between a landing page and my main website, my main home page.

That is also in the Facebook Ads Mini course, because when you use a landing page versus sending people to your main website, You’re going to see about 10 to 25 times more leads When you’re sending people to a landing page as opposed to just your main website Or your blog okay, So I cover all that I’d, like obviously there’s a ton of ton of information that I can go through and cover. But I want to get to Kind of choosing one of these objectives and then showing you how to target the audience.

How to stuff the ad and I’ve also got A few ad examples up here And kind of give you an idea of how to actually set up your ad is you’re going through and creating all this. So so, For this example, let’s just say we’re going for traffic. Ok, now traffic! This is not like you’re on the freeway right, there’s not like yeah. You know you got stop and go traffic all the red lights. This is Sending people.

So someone sees your Facebook ad or your Facebook post. Is there scrolling through their newsfeed on their phone or in their laptop, And then they click on that post and then it sends them to your website. Okay or your blog, or to your landing page or wherever. You’re wanting to send them all right, so That’s what this traffic one is all about. So if we click on this, we can give it a campaign name.

So, let’s just say we’re going to do like traffic and then it will just do demo right here. For this example, okay, So we’ll go through We’ll hit continue. Okay, so now we get to you can see like we’re breaking it down, so we got the campaign, which is basically your objective Right like what Do you want to? Actually, Do you want to generate leave some people, your website, people, to read your articles, Whatever it might be, and the ad set this is getting into your targeting like Who do you want to target you want to target people in your local community? What age you want them to be? Do you want to be male/female? Do you want to display target specific interests? What is your budget? You want to spend five dollars a day.

Do you want to do a lifetime budget of $ 100 for the whole month? All that different stuff and then once we have the campaign objectives selected, which we’ve already done that will dive in we’ll go through this ad set level. At that point, we can go through and create our Facebook ad okay, so Right here, let’s just give it a name, really quick. We can just say test demo right here and normally I like to give it a name based off of who I’m targeting.

So if I’m targeting people in Dallas within a ten-mile radius, ages, 45 to 55, I like to kind of go through and put that right in here. So when I’m going back and looking at my advertising campaigns, I Can see kind of a quick look at which ones are performing better than others. Okay, so we’re going to go through do traffic website Right there. We don’t need a messing with any of that stuff, and then we go down to the audience now guys.

This is where it starts to really get dialed in with who we want to target and in that Facebook, as many course was talking about. I Show you how you can go through and create custom audiences of people who have already readed one of your articles on Facebook. Okay, People have already visit your website, people that already are your lead, so your contacts, you can actually import all of your contacts, Whether you have their email, their phone numbers or whatever information you have Import that in so you’ve got this like warm market of people, That already know exactly who you are now those those ads are actually going to perform a Lot better than if you’re just going through and targeting a cold market.

But the nice thing is: is it’s nice to do a little bit of both, because then you can go through and get more exposure Or people that have no idea who you are, But then you can also have maybe an ad running for a dollar two dollars. A day to your warm market And be able to generate leads for a lot less Okay. So for this example, Let’s just say we are a realtor in Dallas all right, so Where we go through it, as I mentioned guys to look the custom audiences, They talked about in the Facebook Ads mini course.

That is all down right here. We can go through and create them, select them and do all that good stuff. But we’re not going to hit that right now in this article. Okay, so we’re going to say we’re a Dallas realtor or you could set your Dallas restaurant or gym owner or whatever business You’re in right. It kind of just is the same type idea. So, instead of saying locations United States, We are going to put our Local area.

Okay, so we’re just going to say: Dallas Texas, well, click right there. Then this is really cool guys, based on what business you’re in okay, like if you’re a restaurant, You probably don’t want to do a 25 mile radius, but you might want to do just a 10 mile radius K Or you can even see you looked up here. It says current city only okay, because you’re like hey, I’m a restaurant, so people are probably not going to come ten miles just to go to my restaurant, So you want to go through and get that super dialed in now, Depending if you’re, you know, let’s say If you’re a restaurant, you probably would want to use everyone in this location, Whereas, if you’re a local gym or a realtor like this example, you probably want to do people who live in this location, Okay, because everyone in this location, that means they could be there Visiting for work They just passing through or whatever it might be, which, if you have a business where you know like they’ve, got to be there to actually like buy a home or They’re there, for you know to go to a gym or anything like that.

You don’t really necessarily want to target Just everyone. You want to get pretty Specific now. Obviously, look at these cool things. If you have like a tourist business, you say hey. I only want to hit people traveling in this location, so you can do some pretty cool things with Facebook advertising right here. So let’s just do people who live in this location because we’re going to go through and give more of the like a realtor example Right.

So now we come down, We choose our age range. Okay, now someone looking to buy a home They’re probably going to be, I would say minimum age is about 25 right and it could go up to 65 plus You can kind of dial it in like. If you like to work with the younger community or kind of like the middle age community or more of the older community, you can kind of go through and target based on that and then obviously, if You’re going through and selling homes, you want just all genders Right, you don’t want to be able to be specific to men or women, But obviously, if you run like let’s say a fitness gym and the focus is just Women or just meant men or whatever it might be, you can go through and target that and then Also languages here I typically like to leave it open-ended, but you can come in here Just to kind of show you guys you can say hey.

I just want target English speakers. Okay or maybe you want to go through and work with the Hispanic market, so you would might type in hey I’m going to type in Spanish and just hit people that speak Spanish. So you can see. There’s 450,000 people, that’s a pretty good market right there right! So, let’s just leave it at that! I’m not going to target any language because you know whether they speak Spanish, English, I’m fine with that.

Okay, so we’ve got 1.8 million people there And then we come down. We can choose some detailed targeting based on what business you’re in you might want to target. Okay So like, let’s say home owners. Okay, so, like you can come in here, You can see hey the interests of homeowners or demographics right here, guys, people that own home. So, if you’re looking to go through and help people sell their homes, you might want to go through and target homeowners right there, Okay, So that that goes through and that drops it down quite a bit because not everyone obviously owns a home.

A lot of people are Probably renting in the area, And so just you want to think about. Okay, like what type of advertising campaign am I running. Who do I want to target and then go through? You can include some detailed targeting here now Lots of times what I like to do just right out of the gate. I don’t really like to include targeting I like Facebook just to go through their advertising. Algorithms are actually extremely smart, and so they, a lot of times, can go through and Find the ideal people based on your ad.

Just you just got to give it a few days, Maybe three, four or five days to go through and kind of like learn. Some information on who your target audience is and who’s clicking on that ad Who’s, opting in and all that stuff, and so a lot of times I like to just leave it open right here: Okay, now Connections, I usually just kind of leave this open-ended. I just don’t touch it and then placements now.

This is big guys When they say automatic placements. This is recommended. I don’t necessarily always recommend that okay, so basically that saying hey We’re going to show your ads on Facebook on Instagram on, you know on our advertising networks, all these different platforms, So I usually like to go to edit placements And you guys can get a general Idea of the different places you can go through and show these ads.

Okay, so you could even say hey. I only want to go and show people on mobile or only show to people on their desktop, but for this just to simplify, I Normally leave it on all devices right here which is recommended. Okay, so I’ll just leave it at that. Then you can see all these different options, guys likely this Facebook, You got the newsfeed instant articles. You got the right-hand column like when you’re scrolling.

Through on your desktop. You got the Marketplace. You got the Instagram feeds you can pop it up into the Instagram stories. Up at the top, you guys have probably seen some Of those ads that you got the audience network And then also messenger. When people are scrolling through a messenger on their phone, They can see an ad and you can see kind of like what the ads are going to Actually look like now.

If you’re brand news Just start now guys, I would just say unchecked everything. Besides The Facebook news feeds and if you want to do Instagram newsfeed, that’s totally cool too. If I go through and just uncheck all of this And then just keep it to like people scrolling through Facebook, on their phone or on their desktop or scrolling through Instagram – And I like to just kind of keep it basic at that.

Okay. So now we’ll scroll down – and this is where we can go through and create our budget right, so we’ve got a daily budget or A lifetime budget. Now, if you want to say hey, I only want to spend a hundred dollars total on this campaign. I would use a lifetime budget and you can go through and set the start and end date And how much you want to actually spend, or you can say, hey. I want to do a daily budget, And maybe you want to start out with just ten dollars a day: okay Or maybe five dollars a day or whatever the budget that works and fits within your advertising budget there.

But I usually like, if you do have the budget, I usually like to start out about ten dollars a day, just because you’re able To go through and get the data back from Facebook and see if campaigns are working or not working, You’re able to see it. A lot quicker, So you know if you’re spending only five dollars a day, It’s going to take maybe two or three times longer To see if that campaigns working as opposed if you’re spending ten to even 15 dollars per day.

Okay, now, if we come down here, I usually like to just kind of leave the optimization for a delivery, just just, as is a lot of this stuff. I just leave it as is and honestly There’s a lot of like high end advanced stuff that you can get into, But a lot of times kind of the basic general idea of what Facebook gives you it’s good enough And you don’t really need to go through And get all you know, particular about what’s checked on, What’s checked off, Setting like a bid cap and all that stuff just stuff that you really don’t need to go through and optimize right now, So we’re just going to hit continue guys and now.

At this point, This is where we can go through and set up our actual Facebook ad. Now let me jump over here. I wanted to show you guys a couple of these ads and just show you how they’re broken down and why I do The different things that we do. So this is an image ad okay, So you can go through and you can use a article here. You can use an image you can go through. There’s one, That’s called a carousel where you can actually add multiple images or multiple articles.

So some pretty cool different things there, But you can you go what you want to do. Kind of the structure of an ad is you want to call out your audience? Okay, so I would say: hey your city or your County homeowners and we’re looking for people looking to sell their home, We’re going to say, hey attention. You know Dallas homeowners right or if you’re a restaurant, you can say hey Dallas, foodies right or do you like to work out in Dallas, or you know just like calling out that specific audience And then what I like to do is kind of ask some type Of question to pique their interest: hey: Do you want to increase the value of your home? Now, if I’m looking to this, I’m seeing hey, I’m a Dallas, homeowner! Okay and you say: hey: Do you want to crease up out of your home? Of course, you want to crease the value of your home right, you kind of piqued their interest, And then you get initial call to action.

Hey go through click here, and this is taking them to a landing page. So I’ll just show you guys kind of what that looks like right here. This says it like seven, simple tips are raising the value of your home before selling Get the tips they put in their email or you go for the name phone email. You know what you’re going for this is obviously just a demo right here, but Then you go through and maybe add a little bit more value, Okay, so that they didn’t they’re like not totally sold to go click and opt-in right there, You can say hey by The way I’ve compiled a free pour the seven simple hacks.

I tell my clients to raise the value of their home or, let’s say, if your local restaurant, we do awesome like Taco Tuesday, where we have like fifty percent off all of our tacos or Hey. You know if your gym owner, Hey we’ve, got an awesome, seven-day, Free like membership or something like that. Just kind of like get you kind of peaked into there And then I always like to close out with another call to action Which is send them to see the same landing page and then thanks And then your name to kind of add some personalization to it.

Alright, so we break this down again. Really quick. You’ve got the you’re calling out your target audience. Okay, you’re peaking their interest with some type of question right, which is kind of like a no-brainer question. Like hey, You know: Dallas residents, Are you looking to get fit for the summer like that? That’s really targeting that that specific market right there, like you, know Dallas foodies.

Would you like to try the best new barbecue place in town or whatever it might be right And then you’re kind of sending them there? And then you can go through and send like Write. Another line of some different bonus or some value that they’re going to get when they go through and opt in so Another one I’ll show you guys really quick, I’m not going to break down exactly step by step like I did the last one, But it’s a Very similar one, but this one is obviously a article Which is cool because, like as I mentioned, that face book advertising mini-course I’ve got for you guys.

I show you how to go through and identify The people who have readed three seconds of your article. Ten seconds of you do 25 %, 50 %, and so on. So it’s really cool, because then you can know like hey this person’s, not a completely cold Audience right. They’ve actually seen my article. They have probably a little bit of an idea of who I am What my business is and how I can go through and help them okay.

So now, let’s jump back over to the Facebook Ads manager. So this is where we are going to go through and create our ad or, as I mentioned earlier guys, if you, you know already Made your post and you’re like hey. I just want to use that post. I don’t wan na have to recreate it. You can click on use existing post right here, Okay, Now what we want to do is we want to select our facebook business page that we’ve got you can see.

I’ve got. I’ve actually got a few two over here, but we come through. I select the Jason ward drop links, That’s the one I want to use. You can even go through and select what Instagram account if you want to run it on Instagram as well, And if you don’t have an Instagram account connected, you can just say: hey use. My Facebook page as that Instagram account okay, Then coming down We’ll just go through, and click select, post it’ll pop up all the posts that you’ve recently posted.

It’s like, let’s say for this one. I want to post this one right here And so now it’s just going to show this and then at this point all we got to do is hit confirm And that’s it, but the ad is completely set up. Now, Let’s go back, Let’s say you don’t have an existing post. You want to create this completely from scratch, So we first want to select the Facebook page right and then we can choose the format right here.

Okay, now I showed you guys. We have the image ad. We’ve also got the article ad. We’ve got these different options right here, And so there honestly guys, I don’t necessarily prefer one or the other They’re, both Good for different reasons, kind of depending on what you want to go through and show. If you want to go and give an insight Look at or of your restaurant or an open house or a you know of your gym or whatever business you’re in Obviously, a article would be kind of nice and kind of like just show.

People inside and the cool thing is guys With this. I don’t recommend so like this one right here. This is a very professional article. These actually don’t perform as well as just kind of like a normal basic article shot with your eye phone Or your whatever mobile phone. You use okay, so I would highly recommend Just going through keeping it basic. You don’t have to go through and have a massive marketing advertising budget for all this, so just go through And use your phone as you’re going through and setting all this up.

Okay, so now you can go through. You can choose Hey single image, single article slideshow. So I like to usually Start with either a single image, like I showed you guys earlier or even the single article and then right here You can go through and upload an image from your desktop. Like let’s say, maybe, you’ve got an image of your gym Or of a home that you’re looking to sell, or you know your restaurant, whatever It is or you can even go through and you can use some free stock images And you’re going through select.

Let’s say you are a Realtor right, that’s kind of the example We’re using. So we want to go through and use a home Okay. So we go through. We click on this and, like you can see, it’s got a watermark when it goes live It’s not going to show the watermark Okay, so you don’t have to worry about that. We’re going to hit confirm Okay! So now it’s going to pop up It’s going to show us the ad right here and then, let’s say our website I’ll just pull up my website right here, Arsalan kg comm – let’s just throw that in that’s! This is where we’re trying to send people to Okay and then well.

We use kind of like that same method now, just for just sake of time, guys I’m just going to copy and paste this right here and We’ll come back over here into this text box. Here It says home what we’re going to Do is just like go through and put that right in here And then the cool thing is, is we’ve got some of these templates for you guys, so we can say Dallas, homeowners and just kind of fill in your Own information, so you can say, hey get my tips here and link out to We’ve got our website up here, Which guys, if you guys go through my facebook, guys mini-course drop comment down below give it a thumbs up.

I show you guys the difference of why you should use a landing page as opposed to your main website. Obviously this one I’m just using our main website. I highly recommend not doing that. I just want it. Okay, and you can say down here: Hey thanks. Your name Jason Wardrop, okay, So now we come down here. You’ve got the headline right here, so you say, like hey: Dallas homeowners Increase The value of your home, Something like that rights like go through kind of grab their attention right there, And then I like to do for the call to action.

You’ve got all these different options, Or you can even say hey no button. I like did you learn more because if somebody’s interest is piqued like they do technically want to learn more right, and so, instead of saying like sign up or what, like you know, request time, it’s kind of a little bit like sign up almost is a Little Bit standoffish, so I like to kind of do, learn more because it’s like hey I’m curious.

I would like to learn more okay, then down here at an overlay image. I just leave that multiple languages just leave that I want initially show that now display link optional. I just probably leave that for right now, Then do speed, link description, so you guys can see over here. This is the mobile newsfeed and if we want to check and see like what it looks like on different platforms, We can scroll through, and so this is what it would look like on your desktop Newsfeed and that’s where this newsfeed link description would be okay.

So we can say, like hey, Increase the value of your home, something like that and then you’ll see it’s going to pop up down over here, But I think because our headlines so long, I think that’s why it’s not popping up. So normally, if your headlines Not super long, It will pop up down over here It’s not going to Sara Lee pop up on your mobile or you know, or even on Instagram. So this isn’t like super super important.

But if you want to go through an out of that, you totally can, then you can see right here. This is what’s looking like on Instagram, so it’s kind of nice be able to go through and sort through and see what it looks like on these different platforms there, and then all we don’t have to do is just hit confirm and We have now gone through And created our advertising campaign right guys, So that was kind of like a you know, a quick run through.

I wanted to show you guys all the different steps And why you should be using the Facebook Ads manager as opposed to Boosting your post. You want to make sure you get the right objectives, but if you’re looking to use like you know, lead forms like I talked about where it’s got, that little form that pops up and Facebook automatically fills in the information with the name phone number, an email address Or if you guys want to go through and create custom audiences With people visiting your website already or reading articles, Or you know, people that are already on your email or in your contact database, be able to market specifically just to them.

I have that all in my facebook ads mini-course to drop a comment below give it a thumbs up. I will get you guys that hundred percent for free I’m not trying to charge you guys anything, I’m just trying to go through help you out, I was I’ve, been actually listening to gary vaynerchuk’s new book.

Facebook Ads Split Testing – How To Split Test Facebook Ads For Beginners In 2020

Now somebody asked on one of my previous articles. They asked about hey, we cover split testing, so I figured I kind of cover this in today’s article now, if you’re, like Jason, what the heck is split testing like what does that even mean? Basically, what it is is testing out two different variables in your marketing campaign: Okay, so that could be your whether you’re, using a landing page versus a leave form that could be on your ad you’re, using an image versus another image, or Maybe an image versus a Article or maybe, you’ve got some copy on one ad versus another copy, like you’re, just trying to test out two different things and See which one is going to convert better for you All right now.

The key thing that I would highly stress if you’re going through and especially if you’re brand new to Split testing, is only test one variable at a time Now. What does that mean? So if you’re going through it you’re testing out which landing page, looks better or works better, Okay, Only test out change out, maybe just the headline: Okay and then maybe in another test, you just change out the the call-to-action button Like what it actually says, really: click The call-to-action button then another time You can test out.

Maybe the button color or Something else, but you don’t want to test out too many variables at one time, because if you test out, let’s say on one page, You’ve got the headline and you’ve got kind of like your sand headlines. Centered called actions standard like bullet points and everything, But then you change everything on the next page. You don’t necessarily know like you. Don’t have like that That go to of that standard base of what you know, works Versus why if something else works better or not? Okay, so you want to go through and you want to have your standard chord like okay.

This is what I’m going to be working off of and then I’m going to change the headline see which headline works: better. Okay, this one works better. So I’m going to go switch it in here and change that out to my standard and then I’m going to test out the Call-to-action button see which one works better. Okay, this second one! It didn’t work that well, so I’m just going to keep with my standard and so that’s how you want to go through and do things so There’s a lot of different software’s.

You can go through and use as far as the landing page split testing, But this we’re to talk more about Facebook, advertising split testing. Let me show you guys how they’ve made it a lot simpler in the last couple of months to go through and split test. So Some different things that we can split test is our campaign objective, Whether we’re using link, clicks or website conversions. We can test off audiences, So one audience versus another audience and see which one really converts better.

We can test different ads like different ad creative. So if we want to see okay, Does this image work better than the other image or You know like this is creative versus this other creative or this, this image versus a article, So we can go through and test out a lot of these different things. So I just want to show you guys, really quick how to set this all up inside of the Facebook Ads manager And kind of some of these new updated things here.

So if we come over here to this green, Craig button I’ll go through create a new campaign and this one, let’s just keep it basic and easy, We’re just going to say the traffic campaign case. We want to send people to your blog to your landing page website, Whatever It might be. Okay, now legis. This is fairly new. This isn’t the last couple months, they’ve added this, but it says create a split test.

So it’s a B test, you’re creative Okay. So that’s the actual ad the placement, So is it going to show up in the news feed The right-hand column is going to show up on Instagram or in stories or where is it going to actually be shown the audience? So are you going to show it to people in Texas or California Or Florida, or it could be based off their interest or age groups or a lot of those other things or also delivery, Optimization? Okay, so that could be like clicks on the ad versus landing page views And so we’re going to like go through and cover a lot of this stuff.

So all we do is just click this on and we’re just going to say, traffic and we’ll just name. This, the demo okay, So now we’re going to hit continue. This is going to take us to the ad set level We’re actually going to dive through and hit a lot of these different things. So this is going to kind of cover some of the different split testing strategies and things that you can Kind of, learn and discover here.

So this is, you know, okay, you can go through and you know target different audiences. Those have a little walk through we’re. Not going to hit this right now because kind of already know what what’s saying right there But down here. This is where we’re going to choose the cases variable. What do you want to test out guys? Facebook they’ve made this so easy and they keep making things easier and easier, at least In my opinion, they kind of like walk you through step by step, So you come through and you say: okay, What do you want says like just really quick hitting this here? No audience overlap.

Your potential reach will be randomized and split amongst ad sets to ensure an accurate test. Okay, because they’re going to take a random portion of our people over here, random portion of people over here They kind of are similar and match. But it’s not like overlapping and so you’re going to get the best data possible Right, so we’re going to come over here. What do you want to test So creative, as we talked about before this? Is your actual app? Is it the image that you’re using a article Like? Are you using a carousel ad? Are you using what text are you using Delivery? Optimization, That’s more of like! Okay.

Are you you know going for link clicks? So if they click on the ad or landing page views, okay, so link clicks. There could be somebody that clicks on the ad and Then let’s say they’ve got bad cell service or just on their phone or something like that or the Wi-Fi is bad and it takes forever to load the page. And So they like exit out on the page before they actually even go through and see what the pages that counts as a link click, Whereas landing page views is somebody that is actually going to view the page.

That means a page loaded and they’ve actually seen your website. Okay, so audience right here, We’ve kind of talked about that and then placement So for this example, let’s just say We’ll, say well, sick placement for this one came and this works for all these different ones. So we come down here. Placement variable number one, Okay, so we could say hey automatic placements, which Automatic placements for Facebook What they want to do is they want to be able to show your ad on every location possible right Because really what’s happening with so many more people jumping on Facebook Is that newsfeed, Like the amount of people that are trying to go market on the newsfeed it’s going up, and so you know It’s supply and demand right, There’s only so much space on that newsfeed, so many users, and so it gets filled up.

So they want. You to advertise on Instagram on the right-hand column on the Marketplace on all these different locations. So maybe, for this one we’ll say add, say a we’re just going to leave it automatic placements and ad set B We’re going to actually test out something else. We’re going to come down here, We’re just going to do News feeds right here. The Facebook news feeds All right, so we’re going to test out Everything versus just the news feeds and then we can even add a testing here So like maybe want to go through and test the Instagram newsfeed versus the Facebook newsfeed versus everywhere.

So all we’re going to do is just click on test. Another ad set right here We come down here and instead of doing Facebook, We’ll just click on Instagram, So uncheck the stories and we’ll say the Instagram you see so now. We’ve got we’re going to measure out the histogram newsfeed versus the Facebook newsfeed versus on all Placements right, and so you can come over here and see like where our budget is going to be going.

Okay, 33 %. The budget is going to go towards ad set a 33 percent towards ad set B and 33 percent towards ad set C. Then we come down here and we’re just choosing our audience. Okay, Now the same thing works guys. If we were to come back over here and shit test out instead of placements, We want to test out audience right, we’re going to go through and we’ve got okay audience a who do you want to do maybe want to do a custom saved audience like Dallas, Texas, Fitness right Versus ad set B.

We want to do maybe real estate, Okay, so and obviously you want to probably split test those because we’re not really related, but you can see how you can easily go through and choose these different audiences where Facebook, the nice thing is they’ll they’ll, give a specific Amount of the budget to each one of these different audiences cuz, so back in the day, guys how this all worked is if you create an ad set and you would go through, and You have like three ads in the ad set.

Ok, Facebook and they’re, like first 24 hours, They would kind of just pick whatever ad was performing the best and they would just run with it. Okay, So you didn’t even know if, like maybe one of the two other ones, actually perform better than the one they picked, But they just didn’t really give you enough to run with. So what I did back in the day is, I only have one AD Per ad set. So if we’re come over here choosing more creative right here – Okay, I would just have one AD per ad set, But now it’s nice because they split it evenly.

Cuz then, after you, you can go through and you’re running your split test, you’re, seeing which one actually works, better you’re able to get a lot better idea of which one works the best and why it worked the best and they go through and Improve your advertising From there now, the reason why guys at today we’re doing all the split testing is the lower our cost per lead, lower our cost per click or cost per Engagement or cost per sale or conversion Whatever it is that we’re going for Alright.

So the creative same thing, if you’re doing this, we’re going to be actually hitting this later in the add section. Alright, so you go through, you create your normal audience. Okay, you set like okay. Where do you want to be placed and all this different stuff? And then you can say you know you want link, clicks, landing, page views. What do you want and then you would go and set a budget we hit continue And this is actually where we would set up the split test.

Ok, so add name. Ok, so a day right here We could even run it from different Facebook pages right. It’s like we wanted one from your Personal brand versus one from your company’s brand and then we can say hey. Maybe this one. We want to do an image, Whereas down here or we got to go over here to add B Okay, we would maybe want to try out a article Okay, So we can see like which one works better, Which one gets us the best Bang for our buck, Because it’s all, obviously all about return on our ad spend, So some people will go and spell that out.

Roas return on adspend, So ROI return on investment right, and so That’s kind of the key goal of why I want to go through and set all this up. Okay, So anyway, guys, if you have any other questions, drop down a comment below, if you guys found this article helpful, is pretty self-explanatory From here as far as going through and setting up your ad like if you want to go through and choose an Instagram account.

Okay, this is the one I have Integrating here. You upload a article. You go through, throwing it URL to your website some text, all that stuff, But keep in mind guys only change out one thing. So if on add, B you’re doing a article versus add a you’re doing An image, you want to make sure that this text is all exactly the same. Okay, You want to make sure your call-to-action bowl says, learn more.

You want to make sure that is all Exactly the same as well. You want to make sure it’s setting to the same exact landing page, Because you really want to get a good idea of. Is it the ad that we’re testing out right here, Or maybe you found an ad that works really well, And so you want to test out the landing page like? Is it the headline of a landing page, the call-to-action, the colors? The aim, Like the background, like what is it that really we want to go through and test.

Okay. Now, in my personal experience, The simpler the landing pages, the better just like playing back background of white, Very clear text, just very simple page – that loads, quick and I’ll, get you the right information. That’s what’s I’ve seen his work best So anyway, guys and also, if you guys, want my facebook ads mini course, I’m going to add a link down in the description as well to that Facebook guys mini course and walk you through the Facebook guys manager.

10X Social Proof With Your Facebook Ads – Facebook Advertising Tips And Strategies

So, yes, obviously you can go through and you can go boost the post and get more likes, get more comments, But I’m not talking about that. I’M talking about how to go through and strategically Leverage and use that Facebook ad, so that we can go through and Compile likes and comments from all the different ad sets that we’re going through and creating.

Now. The thing is, is when we go through and we create multiple ad sets Like, let’s say we’re, creating a campaign, and we want to get conversions. We want to get leads on our landing page Right and then, if we go through, we want to use that same ad, but we duplicate the ad set. What happens is Facebook actually Duplicates that ad and so it’ll be the same exact ad, but it’ll it’ll create a completely new one.

It doesn’t carry anymore over of any of the likes and the comments. So We don’t want this because, like if somebody goes through and let’s say you’re targeting one ad set is targeting, Let’s say Texas right, another ad says targeting Florida or whatever It might be. You know obviously, ad sets are targeting different audience types, whether its geographic location or interest or whatever It might be.

If someone in Florida likes your post, okay Or they have a positive comment or something like that, You want people in Texas to see that same exact thing. Right like or I mean That’s, probably a bad example, because geographical location can kind of get iffy. But let’s say you go going through you’re targeting different interests. You want people to go through and see that there’s a lot of social proof That is the power of Facebook Advertising, or I seen that other people.

Besides us them are liking. It they’re engaging with it and they’re connecting with your ads, So what I just want to show you guys really quick. This is not that long, a article, because it’s very simple and easy to do. Let’S just come over here. Let’S click on this traffic demo page right here or this campaign – So we’ve got this. This is obviously just a demo and everything like that, but we’ve got this ad set right here, We’re just going to click to the ad level.

Okay! So now, once we’re here, we’re just going to come over here We’re going to make sure this is checked right there We’re going to click on preview, Okay, so this is going to pop up a little preview of the post or the ad or whatever you’re going Trying to promote Now what I’m going to do is click on this button right here. Click on that, It’s going to say: hey Facebook posts with comments; Ok, so this is basically to pop it up on your newsfeed as if it’s you know, just a normal pulse right here.

Okay – And so this is what this is. A post is something that we’ve been Promoting right here for one of our webinars, and this is Jason right here He’s a loan officer, You can see, we’ve got 23 likes, we’ve got some hearts and we’ve got even some comments and all this stuff. So we want to be able to carry that over because, like Richard right here He’s got a great comment. I’M a true believer. It works, you know, So we want everyone to be able to go through and see the social proof behind this net right.

We don’t want to go through and start completely from scratch with every single ad that we start over, because that’s Naturally what Facebook does, unfortunately right. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to take this URL, this ID Okay, so everything at the very end. Okay, so it’s right here, this long number and we’re just going to copy this okay. So once we copy that we come over here Back to the ad set level – Okay, So this one – I just have it as like: it’s it’s just super open.

We want to duplicate this Okay, so we would duplicate it. It says: okay, Do you want to do so like this is basically just creating a new ad set, so we can target different People different audiences and we just want to use the original campaign, We’re going to click duplicate right here and it’s going to pop up And allow us to go through and change up the targeting. So I’m going to come in here and say: Demo ad set number two right: Okay, then we can come down and if we have like a custom audience Like, maybe we want to go through on one of them.

We want to target people that have visit our website and another one. We want to target People that we’ve uploaded as leaves or people have readed our articles or whatever It might be right Or we can come in here and say hey. I don’t want everyone in the United States. I just want people and kind of like the example we’re showing before everyone in Texas Right. So we come down here and we can pick.

The age group Obviously go through. Do your custom targeting It doesn’t really matter. I mean this is not kind of the key part that we’re showing you right here and then we hit publish Okay. So now, once we hit publish on this it’s going to go through and because we duplicate it technically, it would go through and Create a new ad that doesn’t have any lags any comments, Nothing on it’s completely from scratch.

Okay! So now what I want to do is I, like, I like to refresh guys the new Facebook guys manager. Sometimes I don’t. I don’t love it. It’S kind of a pain in the butt, So I refresh it because it wasn’t popping up automatically like it used to Which I love the the way he used to work Now. They’Ve kind of compiled compiled the power editor with the new Facebook Ads manager, not my favorite, So we click on right here and then now what we could do is if we just go over here and hit edit and Remember how we grabbed this URL this ID.

We just copy that, and we could say: hey use. Existing posts enter the post ID Paste it in right there, Okay, so, instead of creating that we want to use use existing posts and your post ID hit submit Okay, you know I’ve got the target on Instagram. This articles longer than 60 seconds, That’s why it’s giving us the air right there Look at this guy’s we carry over all 24 likes. We carry over the comments We carry over the shares and then we hit publish and we are set and ready to go.

So that is how you can go through and 10x is social proof With your facebook advertising. With all of your ads, your campaigns, your ad sets everything that you’re setting up now I just went through, and just yesterday I had some URL issues with my webinar registration page, So I had to go through and reset all my campaigns. All my ad sets everything which is a huge pain of, but because I usually don’t like to work on Sundays, but I Had to get it back up and running so that we could get keep our business push it forward.

So anyway, what I did was go through, and I had a bunch of look like audiences right now. We cover that in a different article, if you guys were like what the heck are looked like audiences, I can go through and cover That drop. A comment down below, if you’re, totally confused on that, and I can explain that in another article. But basically these look like audiences are like your your just your audiences.

So, instead of targeting people in texas or Florida, Okay, I’ve got look like audiences of people who have bought our software program or people have bought another one or a program. So There’s all these different audiences, and so, instead of going through and targeting all these audiences and creating new blank ads started completely from scratch. I want to go through and take those ads that already have bikes already had comments already had everything and Just kind of carry them over Like I have some ads that have almost 2,000 likes on those which that’s a lot of social proof right there like.

That is a ton where you know If somebody hits that sees that ad, like wow, hardly like almost 2,000 people have liked this They’re a lot more likely to go through and pay attention, as opposed to you know an ad that has absolutely no likes no comments, Because then, like Humans, just out of nature guys, They don’t want to be the first one to take action, They’re kind of scared, They’re, hesitant They’re, like whoa, I don’t know, and so that’s why.

I, like all these little social proof, things where you go to websites now. You know like have a little thing to pop up at the bottom. It’Ll say like hey this person just bought five minutes ago, or this person just bought ten minutes ago And then or if you’re liking a live event and there’s a seller on stage. They sell something, and then one person runs the back. It kind of triggers that up those other people to go through and run back to the back of the room to buy whatever they’re Selling right, Because, like no one’s right in the back, You don’t want to be that awkward person like you’re running the back.

We’Re like, let’s say you know you are in a live event or you’re in some room Someone’s like hey, who here Does this like? Who here, You know, Choose their food with their mouths open or something kind of weird. You don’t want to be that weird person like raising your hand, So it’s the same thing with all this stuff guys. That is the point of Facebook. That is the point of Instagram all these social networks and the social networks, Advertising platforms.

If you can get that social proof, unlike you know, Google banners, You can’t really see how many people are clicking on those banners. You can’t see any of that other stuff, And so this is huge guys. So this is a quick refresher. All you got to do. Is you hit preview on the ad? You pull it up, So it just shows this look at this. It’S just showing this app And then this is the post ID right here. We just copy that come back over here.

We use use existing posts, enter the post ID paste it in there submit, hit, publish and we are done. We are good to go So anyway, guys. Hopefully this article was helpful if it was give it a thumbs up, drop a comment down below.
