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.

How to Use Facebook Ads for Beginners (2020) – A Complete Facebook Ads Tutorial

I’ve spent close to half a million dollars now on Facebook. So I feel, like I know, a thing or two.

This is this: is an old old account? You can see right here lifetime. Just so, you know a little under 6000. This is back time when I was testing and then I made more of an official business account And that’s where I do most of my spending right. So that’s for me personally in my business, But then I’ve spent another. I don’t know hundred thousand, maybe four other clients, so We’ve really gone through and nailed down a lot of the different strategies and obviously there’s always more to learn: there’s always Things that are changing with Facebook and you need to stay on top of that.

But with this I want to give you guys a quick run-through from A to Z, so Right here guys Just to give you a quick overall view these. These are all of your campaigns alright And we’re going to walk through There’s good, There’s three types of things: There’s a campaign There’s an ad set and then there’s an ad okay. So, like campaign is kind of like at the top, And then you can have multiple ad sets to the campaign, And then you can have multiple ads in each one of the ad sets right.

So just to break that down. It’s actually easiest to go through and start creating campaign to explain each one of the different Meanings of what those all are cuz like you’re, probably okay, Just what the heck are those right. So if we click on create campaign right here, all right, It’s going to See we’ll start over. It says: What’s your marketing objectives, okay, So there’s a lot of different things here And we need to choose the objective that best suits us of what we’re shooting for.

Okay, so we’ve got Brent of awareness right here, consideration or conversion, so Facebook they have so much data that they know. If they’re going to show an ad in front of somebody. They know if somebody’s going to read A article like more likely to read a article or more likely to like or comment a post like for me. I don’t really like and comment on a lot of posts, but I’ll click on a lot of links, And so they’ll probably know okay I’ll, show Jason ads that are more traffic base of people.

So traffic is basically like you Them to click to your website or to a blog post or something like that where it’s article views. That’s like posting a article on Facebook. You you just want people to read it. You don’t want necessarily them to click anywhere Engagement. That’s just like clicking that boost post button on your Facebook page. That’s to get people to like and comment and share on your posts and Facebook knows the people that are more likely to do that came and right here.

There’s lead generation, That’s using Facebook’s lead forms Which we could shoot another article another day, if you guys want a article specifically on that Just comment down below, because I can go through and show you step by 7. The cool thing about this is: It gives you their name phone email address, whatever information you want, But it automatically pulls the information that Facebook has on file so a lot of times.

You can eliminate a lot of the bogus information When it comes to lead generation. Right now Messages this is kind of a newer one, but this is really hot right now of just like, you know, they click hey, I’m interested to call to action is send message, and then it starts a conversation in your facebook, Messenger, okay and I’ve seen some Crazy awesome results with facebook, Messenger and then Conversions right here.

This is using. This is diving a little bit deeper And I’ve got some other articles on this, but using Facebook’s, pixel, Okay, So they’re pixel is basically their way of tracking everyone that comes to your website. Everyone that becomes a lead all that stuff, which we can hit a little bit on that today, But will also I’ve got. I’ve got actually another article that I’ll link here Be able to show you guys how to actually make that happen.

Okay And how to set that up and use it on your website, so these are all the different ones. So, for this one, Let’s just say We’re going to go with traffic alright, And this obviously is based off of your goals of what you want to go through and do I didn’t really hit brand awareness. Brand Awareness is just getting like a massive reach, getting like more exposure than anything. You know it kind of like that in store visits, catalog sales.

This is a little bit more advanced And it depends on like what type of business you’re in so I’ve actually never used those Just because I’m not in that type business. But if you use you’re, working with like a physical location Like store visits, obviously are going to be huge or catalog sales. That’s probably going to Be really more to e-commerce. Alright, so let’s just say traffic right here And then we could give the campaign a name.

So we’ll just say: demo traffic campaign right So come over here and just really quick back I’ll show you, Let’s just click back right here. You can’t set a limit to the campaign. Saying hey, I don’t want to spend any more than 200 bucks, 500 bucks whatever or 50 or whatever the number is, But I typically don’t do that. I just kind of keep my eye on the campaigns and read them. So what does it continue here? Okay, So the campaign so like we’ve got the three Different pieces of the campaign, which is kind of like the overall, the highest part of the pyramid.

I guess and you’ve got ad sets where you can have multiple ad sets within the campaign. Okay and then the ad right here, So your campaign is the objective: do you want two people to read articles traffic get leads? What do you want to happen, then? Your ad set? This is where it gets into the Targeting of fining, like what’s the audience like. What’s the demographic you want to target? What’s your budget, You can see right here.

They break it down They’ve, actually they change this about a year ago And they made it really simple to kind of see all the steps like your objective. Okay, now the trap. Okay is traffic? Who do you want the audience to be? Where do you want to be placed? You want to be on your mobile phone, a Desktop on Instagram on all these different platforms, and then your budget. So it’s like hey. Do you want to spend five hours a day? You want to spend $ 100 a day like how much do you want to spend okay so over here as we come down, and we can give this a name to so we’ll say demo a Traffic ad set, and then you can.

I typically would like at this point to just give it a name based off the audience Right which we don’t know yet something just kind of create this on the fly. But it’s kind of cool because you see like the potential reach of what you’ve got so far and we’ll break it down. You’ll see how this number right here is: 200 million. How, as we go through and break this down, It’ll shrink but you’re getting more narrow.

More specific, Okay! So when I’m running a campaign, if it’s, if it’s like a national campaign like all across like the US or Canada or whatever country you live in, I Like to get a few hundred thousand people in that campaign, because Facebook works better with more data. Okay, So, like the bigger the audience, the bigger at work, it works. However, if it gets too big if it’s getting to like three four five million, Sometimes you’ve got to like nail injure your targeting a little bit better.

If it’s like a super broad market, then great Like if you’re selling, I don’t know like Weight, loss, stuff, cuz, that’s a pretty broad market. But if you’re like in more of a specific niche, you probably want to stick around like the one to two million on the higher end right. That’s at least what I’ve seen. But then, if you’re doing like local ads. Obviously, it’s kind of based off of How many people live in your town in your city, right like you, live in Chicago versus, I don’t know like it’s.

Some small town in South Dakota right like you’re, going to Have a lot fewer people, But you don’t want to be reaching out to people in North Dakota because this is not going to be within that right. Demographic, okay, So come down here traffic. I just leave this here. Nice thing is some of the stuff. You don’t really even have to touch It’s. It’s not like it’s super important so offer I don’t do anything there and then custom audiences.

This is a little bit advanced, so we’ll hit that in another article and then four locations – Let’s say let’s say this is let’s just say this is a local, app, okay, We’re running it for a local weather, we’ll say a real estate agent. Just because That’s I work a lot in the real estate space and the mortgage space. So let’s say: okay, We’re going to come down here and we’ll say. Or do we want to be a tape? Orlando, Florida, Okay, So we’ll type in Orlando Florida and lay this? They went from 200 million down to two million people right here now.

What, if I run in a local ad, this locations of this drop down it by default, is going to say everyone in this location, But I typically would want to do people who live in this location? Okay, because it’s like hey, I just want people who live in this location and that’s good for real estate. But if you’re doing like it for a restaurant – And you just want everyone that location, because, if they’re busy and as a matter if they’re visiting You want to be able to target them as well or you can do piece people recently in this location.

So if they were there But they’re, not there anymore or people traveling this location so like if you’re like running ad for more tourists type stuff, You can do that as well. So For this one with real, We’ll just say, people who live in this location And then you can see that without narrowed down to 1.5 million, because well That is kind of a touristy spot right. So now what we could do Is we can go through and say: hey.

I only want it with people in the current city, Okay, so which that’s going to nail down to eight hundred eighty thousand, or do you say hey, I want to do more of a radius Okay, so you can go up to 50 miles or down to ten Miles so just because this is a little bit bigger city Right, we can do a 10-mile radius, okay, so now we’re going down and As far as the age range you got to kind of think of, like your target demographic, Like how old are they like somebody? If we’re doing real estate, It’s looking to find someone, That’s looking to buy or sell a home, Then 18 year olds – probably not going to be in that demographic.

So I’d say that we like to go up to at least Like a 25 26 27. Something like that, and so you can see how you’re narrowing down This as well. You Go through. You could type in languages, It’s like. If you only want to work with people that speak English or you could say, hey. I want to work. I know there’s it’s a big Hispanic market in that area, so you could just say hey. I want Spanish, So you can kind of see as two hundred twenty thousand people or you can just say, hey, You know I work with, doesn’t matter what language they speak.

If they they live in the u.S, They probably speak a little bit of English, so I’ll just leave it at that. So I’ll, typically just cuz I’d speak English. I’ll just put that in Now guys. This is where it gets pretty cool right here: Okay, the detailed targeting okay, so the detailed targeting you could do some really cool stuff here. So What I like to do you go through and browse? You can browse by demographics, so somebody’s education, Okay, it’s education, level, They’ve got a college degree or they’ve.

Just high school or they’re in college They’re in high school They’ve got a master’s degree, So you can get pretty like bit and obviously this is not always something that you have to go through and choose, But sometimes depending on your ad you’re. Creating this can be really helpful, So it’s just good to know some of these different things that are in here or financial. You can say hey. I only want to hit higher income people, so people they’re making over half a million dollars a year.

Okay Or I can target the lower or like kind of like the middle-income or something like that or saying, hey net worth, okay, Because if you got like a high value, real estate property. For sticking with this, you probably like somebody – that’s only like – has a $ 100,000 net worth. It might not be able to afford a five-minute. Well, They can’t afford a five million dollar property. Okay, so that’s kind of cool right here and then also, I said what hits of these things, because these are like What I like found somebody stuff with some of these things in here I was like wow there’s a lot of stuff.

You could do so. I don’t want just open up your guy’s eyes And your mind is seeing some of the different things that we can do here. Alright, so you can do home ownership, Which is big for obviously real estate mortgage. You say: hey, I’m looking for people to first-time homebuyers home type life events Interests you see like okay, You want people like there’s one where let me find this There’s what old behaviors.

I think it is okay, Where it talks about people’s purchase. Behavior right this right here, So people that are like more likely to make big purchases online if you’re doing like ecommerce type stuff, see these buyer profiles, Coupon users that, like it’s crazy, how much data Facebook has because Facebook now has the data that you give them. But through Facebook’s pixel they can actually track What sites you’re going to.

They know what what links you’re clicking on What ads you’re clicking on so they’ve actually got a lot a lot. A lot of data on you, Okay, cuz. Some people last times were like well. How do they know that I, like I like skiing – I don’t like any of the skiing pages, but You know maybe you’re clicking on those those ads or something like that. So they’ve got. I mean I’m not going to go through all these, but they’ve got tons of things down here or you can just say, hey They’re, interested in real estate.

You could just type that in okay, so right here interests or Behaviors either. One of these, the difference between interested behaviors interest is basically they’ve liked. Something related to real estate on Facebook. Behaviors is kind of like they’ve, more acted upon something like they’ve, that’s more of like they click the link or something like that. It’s anyway guys, you guys could get lost in this forever.

I’m not going to dive in super deep more on this, just because we’ve already, I feel like hit that pretty well So adding the connection type this right here. I don’t always really do this, but you could say hey. I want them to be people who, like I wanted. I want to just target people who have liked my facebook page already, so it’s like that’s kind of your warm audience Or if you want to like expand a little bit.

But you know how have some of the ads that says: hey So-and-so, like you’re, one of your friends, also likes this page. This is where you can go through and do that so you say: hey friends of people who, like your page or if you want to just Expand and get new people say: hey only. Eight people Exclude people who, like my page, because this is not those like my patients only for new people coming in okay, so now coming down What we could do here so automatic placements a lot of times they have this here by default.

I like to do edit placements and Just so you can see like all the different places we can have these ads. You have it on the newsfeed, so this Mobile and desktop used to be separate, And now it’s just one of the same. If we want to make it just on mobile or just on desktop right here on device types, It says all devices recommended, which I usually leave it at that, but you can say only on mobile devices or only on desktop computers.

Okay, so that’s just something really! Quick there and Then, as we’re going down here, I like to just typically leave it on the Facebook news, feeds and uncheck everything else: okay, Just because I’ve seen the best results with that. However, I just wanted to show you some of the different places you can have these dad’s okay, So you could have it on there instant articles, There’s kind of like a newer blogging type platform Industry articles.

This is kind of like what YouTube’s already been doing. Having like the streaming articles before a article, you know right column, you guys have seen that on your desktop top right lot of times, you get cheaper ad Space for that, just because it not as many people click on that. However, It could still convert extremely well and then right here. This is where you do it on Instagram, okay, Facebook owns Instagram, and So, if you wanted to show on Instagram as well, you say hey, I want to show it in the newsfeed or at the very top on the stories.

Okay, so that’s kind of a cool little feature there. Then you’ve got all these different ones. You know, if you want to do messenger and say hey, I want them to click and go to messenger, or you can actually have it an ad. In essence, pop up in that person, Messenger box, Okay, which it’s kind of crazy right – okay, Now just scroll down here guys. I Don’t really touch this right here and then, as far as the budget, you can do a daily budget.

So I want to spend five bucks a day or a lifetime budget. Just saying hey, I Only want to spend $ 35 $ 100 $ 50 or whatever It is. I typically just like to do a daily budget. Okay and you can start out at whatever number, whatever suits your budget right now. If you have an audience of like seven hundred thirty thousand, you can start at like a higher number like you could start Technically, you know, let’s say 50 or 75 dollars a day.

I like to start normally like around twenty twenty-five dollars a day if I have like a massive massive budget, But if you’re reading this article you’re probably more of a beginner. So if you start around like the five to ten dollar range, That’s probably just that’s perfect. Right so we come in here and then this is. This is something That’s that’s cool Like what I like to do sometimes is when I start a new ad campaign, I like to give it the whole entire day so like right now, I think it’s like 6:00 a.

M.. On a Saturday. I I just woke up. I couldn’t sleep, It’s like I’m just going to shoot a article, So I like to get the full day and let it run so that I can kind of like see the whole day’s data. It’s so like. If it’s. If it’s right here so we say I like to start like, maybe on a Monday, okay and then we’ll say, look We’ll start at 8:00 a.M. Okay and then, since we’re a daily budget, Well, you can’t have a Start end date and then still a daily budget, or you could say, hey, run my ad set continuously, But I like to kind of like have a start date right, and so all that switched Up on me, so we come over here: 8:00 a.

M.. Cuz, then. So, if that’s Monday, at 8:00 a.M. On Tuesday, when I like kind of gets you my ads and stuff around like 8 or 9 a.M.., I Can see a full day’s worth now. Really quick, quick tip, if you guys are only spending $ 10 a day. I would give it probably three to four to five days before you go through and evaluate Whether your campaign is work Not because sometimes it takes a little bit of time for Facebook to go, optimize it and find the right people and the more data They have.

The better They’ll be able to optimize it for you, okay, so despite popular belief, Facebook actually wants you to succeed, because if you succeed, you spend more money with them and it’s great for everyone right. But at the same time you got to have a good ad that that really is fitting with your target demographic Which we’ll talk about ads here in a second okay. So That’s kind of like what I like to do so if it started on Monday from 8:00.

At 8:00 a.M, I could check it, Maybe that next Tuesday Just kind of get a quick glimpse of what it’s looking like. But if I’m only spend $ 10 a day But you’ll wait to like Wednesday or Thursday and really determine if it’s a winning ad or if it’s it’s, not right, okay, So coming down here, link clicks, I typically don’t really mess with any of this, and that Doesn’t matter it like, doesn’t matter what campaign I’m Ronnie, I just like leave it just because lots of Facebook’s basic stuff is kind of like already set to where you want to have it.

Okay! So then, we’ll come over here to the the ads section right and You need a business page, Whether it’s your personal and your business, one or whatever You need a business page in order to run ads, you can’t run it from your personal profile. Okay, now It’s nice because it’s super easy to go through and create your your own Facebook page free, easy takes like two seconds all right, Then, if you’re also advertised on Instagram, you can connect your Instagram account right here right now, the cool thing is is, if You haven’t existed like let’s say you made a post on your Facebook page and, and you want to use that you can just click on use existing post and That you can go through and select one of your previous post right here.

Okay, Now, if you go through and you’re creating a new ad inside a Facebook Ads manager, this is what’s called some people call it a blind ad and the reason why it’s called a blind ad Is because this is actually not going to show up on your Facebook page in the newsfeed Right so there’s the two types you can go: make the post on your Facebook page And then use it as an existing post and use that in your ad campaign or if you Inside here it actually does not show up And there’s Pros and cons to both some people don’t want it to be like if you’re, excluding people from your Facebook page, It’s only a special offer special something for people that don’t like you your page.

Yet then you could do that. Sometimes it’s nice to have it on your Facebook page, Because then you get some free, organic exposure, some likes and comments that you don’t have to pay for, and It looks like those posts, sometimes look a little bit more natural. It’s not like a straight up at Because they’re going to look a little bit different, like an ad inside of ads manager, you’re going to have like the headline The sub headline is going to like Be like I mean you’re just going to be, like you ask See that you see everyday, whereas in a post on Facebook, It’s not necessarily going to look as much like an ad and she kind of like almost, I guess, not trick people But like make them think it’s not an ad.

It is still will say sponsored at the top, But those are some quick little differences there Now we’ll hit these really quick. Just because this is a tutorial for beginners. I want to give a full Rundown of everything. It’s like the carousel. This is we’ll just kind of show: They’ve got like the little demos right here. This is where you can go through and you can have multiple little different images or pictures so like this is kind of nice if you’re in e-commerce and You’ve got like different products that they might be interested in right of like hey, We got this or this Or this, then, that you could just come down here and change these different ones Just through here you can add it, It could be an image or a article.

One thing I’d like to do in the past, with when I’m trying to get more clients is I’ll. Do a carousel ad right like this, But also have different testimonials, so all like going out four or five testimonials like Hey this person, this happened or this person. This happened this person. This happened like real estate. You could potentially feature multiple listings that you have right. Where I like to typically just do one listing, if I’m a real estate agent, Borrowing my business but that’s an option there, you do a single image ad, which I’m sure most of you guys have all seen.

Just it’s just one main core image: the single article Same type of thing, but it’s just a article. Instead of an image Slideshow, I actually have never really used slideshow, but it’s like kind of just that You can see like it says, create a looping article ad with up to ten images. Okay and then Collection right here. I’ve never used this as well. So I’m not going to like go speak to it. I’m not an expert on it feature collection of items that open into a full-screen mobile experience; Okay, so that could be cool.

Okay, Let’s start now, I would highly recommend starting out with a single image or a single article. Here’s the I guess. Basic simplest wants to do so. Let’s say single image, So you can go in here, upload an image You can see there free stock images or browse the library all to see. I don’t even know what images I’ve got Well, she’s like the core, the made the popular profile picture. I always use on everything.

Oh so, if it looks like this guys, There’s a tool, that’s called canvas, yay and va.Com. It will see if this really quick cuz. This is important Like this ad right here. This same thing was happening like this: lady’s head was getting like cut off Cave just kind of like how my heads getting cut off. So what I did on canva is, you can go through and they’ve got all of these Dimensions that are already pre-built for you.

Okay, so, like facebook, add a YouTube thumbnail, This is what I use. Do you make all my YouTube thumbnails. This is the old Facebook, a total dimensions. Facebook cover Facebook, post, Instagram post the college different things So I’ll just hit this and then what I’ll do is I’ll upload. You can just upload the image It makes it really easy to upload. Okay – and let’s say this – is the image right here: Okay, so now, if I go through – and I throw it in right here – and We can make a little background – Let’s see what the background should be.

Maybe this cool house – That’s probably not going to fit that great. I, Like this house, is my background. Actually, Okay, and obviously this is probably Anyway, You guys can see it’s pretty easy. You just like drag and drop everything, and then you can kind of like move. You around all that stuff and then You could even type text. Okay, so test ad Will change that to be white, so they can see it a little bit better to change the font.

Okay, we just maybe throw this up in the corner, and Do it also really quick guys if you have more than 20 % Text in your facebook, add image You’re going to get disapproved Okay, so I actually typically like to have as little text if no text As possible, So this is actually typically what I do on at YouTube thumbnail This doesn’t matter but on something like this I like to like, maybe have like. Maybe it’s like hey and obviously this is not like what I do for real estate.

I’ve got other strategies and stuff like that. But let’s say if you want to throw an image of you or somebody in there have a little background image And then you let your your headline and sub-headline do the talking? Okay, Which will show you guys here in a second now We can download this and Upload it into Facebook, Ads manager. Well, it’s just for this one, I’m just going to browse the library.

I want to show you guys that really quick, Add images we’ll just use something right here that we’ve already got in place. I Will just use this: It’s a it’s a home right, okay! So then we’ll throw in the URL like let’s say, for this example, We’re just doing it to Google. Obviously, you’re not you’re, going to put in the URL of your Your landing page and and I’ll hit another article on that. But you don’t want to send it to your main website or your blog.

It you’re going to waste a lot of money, You’re not going to generate any leads, but obviously it depends on what your goal is right. That campaign objective up here. So if you just want people to read your blog post, then yeah, you could just send them to your blog right. But if you want to generate leads, you want to send to a landing page which all I’ll have another article on that. But that’s kind of where we want to go there, so the text right here The Facebook’s made this pretty easy guys You just kind of go through okay.

What’s the website, you want to send people to what’s the text, you can say test text Copy right here. This is just like your main Facebook post, like what you want to say in there. You can make this as long as you want, can make it like a long long story. You can make it very quick, and what I like to do here, Just is, is a tutorial kind of for beginners, like letting you know how I like to write my my eat.

My copy Excuse me guys, so I like to go through first thing. I like to do is call out my audience. Second thing I like to do is do something to pique their interest and To give them kind of a call to action and then add some value and then another call to action so like, for example, Let’s say Orlando Homeowners, Okay, so that’s calling out my audience. Okay, so I’m targeting people in Orlando And if you’re a homeowner and I can go through back in my interest and say hey – I only want people that are homeowners, so you have specific.

But then, if you’re live in Orlando and your homeowner – and you see Orlando homeowners, That’s going to peak your attention right, that’s going to be like oh hey! This is for me, You could say. Are you looking to sell your home in the Next three to six months? Okay! So now that’s like weeding out through Orlando homeowners, kay, If you’re not looking to sell your home You’re going to keep scrolling You’re done.

I’m not talking to you Say. Are you looking to sell your home in the next three to six months and then, and obviously this I’m just creating this on the fly You could say like Alright look like let’s say, I’ve got somebody looking to buy a home Okay, I have a family of Three looking to purchase a home in the I don’t know where Lana that well so we’ll just say blank Area so like if you were wanting to get like specific to like a community, you know Who is hoping to purchase their Dream home within the next Few Months, okay and then we can say like full details, click here And then we can have a link, so we’re going to have the link.

So if they click on this image right here, That’s going to take them to the the site, but also Is sometimes nice. Add the link inside this copy too, because there’s a reading it lot of times people read Ads or anything online with their mouse. I don’t but a lot of times people do, and so, if you’re they’re going through and they’re like, Oh well, Do you look here? It’s just easy to click right, and So you can add like sometimes it can be as simple and click quick as that or you can add a little bit more.

Sometimes I typically just leave it at that. So light-cone have the audience and then of those people hey. Are you looking to sell your home next 36 months, we’re weaning it down and then we’re adding like it’s like a little value. Add like hey guys, get like if you’re going to sell. I’ve Already got a family of three looking to purchase a home in this specific area. Now, obviously you don’t want to like make that up.

You want to be like legit, But you want to be. Some value. Add there to get them to be like to pique their interest of like okay, What separates you from all the other real sage and stuff like? Why would I want to sell my home with you? You know I mean so then For the headline. This is where that google spot is going to be. We can say, are you Yeah we’ll just say? Are you looking to sell your home okay and that’s going to pop up right there and Then we could say: hey call to action.

FACEBOOK ADS MANAGER Tutorial (2019) – Campaigns Vs. Ad Sets Vs. Ads

So, let’s dive in and the easiest way to really explain all this stuff. You can see kind of you have the look at your campaigns, your ad sets and your ads right up here.

So you can just click and flip through each one of those tabs and The campaign, if you think about it like, should be drawing something like a board or something like that. It’s kind of like at the top and then you kind of like it’s like a pyramid right. So within one Campaign you can have multiple ad sets and then within each ad set you can have multiple ads All right. So, for example, like one campaign might be to get leads and then you’re targeting people in you know Texas, you’re, targeting people in Florida you’re targeting people in California.

Those would be different ad sets and then you would have different. You could have different ads within each one of those ad sets or You could have the same ads within each Mo’s. That says now. I know that’s probably confusing, Let’s jump in and break down exactly What all these are. So if we click on create’ right here, You can see so it’s start over. We have the campaign Okay, so campaign. It says: what’s your marketing objectives Like what do you want to do? Do you want to get people to click to your website? Do you want people to like or comment on your Facebook post? You want people to convert into leaves you want people to go through and make a purchase like.

What do you want So like that’s, basically telling Facebook, because the truth is guys. Facebook has so much data on all of their users that they know what users are more likely to click to a website. They know which users are more likely to kalaiy or comment a post, which ones are more likely to buy something online or by some Specific product online or to opt into a lead generation site. So all that different stuff.

So, that’s why you want to tell them exactly What you’re wanting to do And that’s why a lot of people actually fail with Facebook Ads as they’ll go through and on their Facebook page. So let me just pull up my Facebook page, really quick to show you guys this example So on their Facebook page here, They’ll come down and they’ll make a post And what happens if this will ever load up is you’ll. Get this little boost post button right here, Okay, on every single post that you make boost post and then people will be like, oh well, I boosted my post.

I, like you, know I put money behind it. I did the targeting all that stuff because they made it really simple: just click right. There Cuz obviously they’re going to make it simple, because this is an easy way for Facebook to make money. Then you just go through choose your targeting, who you want to target and you hit boost right. You spend five ten twenty bucks a day, However, when you go through and hit boost posts, this is choosing the market objective of Engagement.

Okay, Which means Facebook is going to show that posts of people more likely to like and comment on your posts, Not necessarily go and click to your website or generate a lead or make a sale or any of that stuff. So Sometimes you do want to do that. Sometimes you do want to go, get the engagement, the social proof behind a post. That’s really good for branding Right, but you don’t always want to do that So the campaign that is your marketing objectives And will hit those different market objectives here in just a second and then your ad set.

This is your targeting Okay! It’s who you want to target This is going to where you’re going to target the custom audiences that we’ve created the look-alike audiences. Alright, this is where you’re going to choose the age, the gender. If you wanted to do interest or a specific location, Any of that! That’s all in the ad set level: that’s telling Facebook who you want to target And then you can see and they’ve made it really simple.

That used to not have it like this, But they made the structure very, very simple, Okay, and So you can see this. The audience like I just explained in the placement, So what the placement is is. Are you going to place your ad on Facebook, I’m the newsfeed? Are you going to place into Facebook right hand, column? Are you going to place it in the Instagram newsfeed? So it’s kind of like old, traditional marketing.

Do you want in the magazine? Do you also want in the newspaper? Do you want it on the billboard? Do you want on the radio So just like all the different places that Facebook owns, which they actually own? Quite a bit of space right So, like you’ve got the Facebook stories. We’ve got the Instagram stories. You’ve got. You know the Instagram newsfeed Facebook newsfeed, So we’re ever. You want to place it we’re going to dive into which placements, I believe, are the best and when you should go through, and You know, expand it out to more places We’ll get into all that stuff here.

But then also your your budget and your schedule, like You, want to spend five dollars a day, ten dollars a day, a hundred dollars a day, or do you want to spend a lifetime budget of $ 100 over the course of a month? Or do you want this? The campaign spent $ 5 and ongoing until you shut it off Whatever it is, and then the ad is obviously what you actually see on Facebook or even on Instagram. So it’s the image, it’s the headline, It’s the text and the copy of all that stuff and we’ll get into the different ad formats And when to use each one and how to use each one.

What what things to really think about here in a later article! So with that said guys what, when it comes to what your market objective, there’s there’s several things that we got ta think about and, like I said, We need to know what our marketing objective is and Facebook has all this data on all of these users. So if we want to send people to our Website just to kind of check out a new blog post that we have or whatever We’re going to use traffic, if we want them to like or comment on our Facebook posts, We would use engagement.

Okay, if, obviously, if you guys have a app or something like that mobile app you’d use this one, I’ve never used it. If you want people to go through and read a article that you’ve promoted, you’d use article views because Facebook knows which people are more Likely to sit on their phone or souther computer and read a article on Facebook All right Now this one, as I mentioned earlier, If you’re brand new starting out, You don’t have any custom audience of any existing users or any existing buyers or leads, or anything like that.

This is a great one, because then you go shoot a you know two three-minute article talking about your product services, whatever it is, Promote it for, like five bucks, a day run it for ten days You spend fifty bucks and you’ll have a few thousand people. Usually you can get article views for about one penny per article view Okay. So if you look at that and that’s a three second article view, that’s not like a ten or you know, 25 percent view of the article.

But if you look at that, you Five dollars per day – That’s 500 people that are reading the article and it’s going to be exposed and reached a lot more than that. So that’s a really quick and easy way, simple way to go through and expand that audience lead generation right here is not necessarily using Landing pages kay we’re going to actually do as section on lead forms, because that’s a little bit a little bit different.

But basically, you run an ad and it’s to get a lead right: schisms, name, phone number, email address or even physical address and Then, instead of sending them to another website like a landing page to get that lead. What you’re going to do is there’s a pre-built form on Facebook. They click it, It pops open and then it pre-populates with all the information they already have on file with Facebook.

Okay, so it’s really cool. It’s really powerful. There are some pros to it. There are some cons to it, We’ll cover those as well and then messages. This is to get people opting in and starting that communication with facebook Messenger, Which is super powerful as well. If you go through kind of the facebook Messenger bot course that we’ve got the module in here, then that’s going to be able to help you as well with this piece and then We’ve got conversions, which this one is going to be more.

This one’s going to be big time with landing pages right or, if you’re, converting somebody into an actual purchase or sale or whatever. So that’s with the pixels, creating those custom, conversions all that That’s where you’re going to use this now catalog sales. This is going to be a lot more for e-commerce stuff, but to be completely honest, I’ve not done a ton with that, because I don’t run ecommerce stuff store visits.

This is a newer one. I haven’t done a lot with that Brand awareness and reach. I messed around with those a little bit, But as far as like going through and reaching a broad audience and building a custom audience, I like to use article views still for that. So So those are kind of different things, and one thing that I would like to just kind of like Just say so you guys kind of are aware On this traffic one.

You might look at that. You may like, oh, why would I ever use that? So I’m just going to use the conversions or the lead generation right here if you’re trying to generate leads. However, If you guys remember from the retargeting section, If you’re not spending enough money each week to get at least twenty convert, You actually want to do this traffic campaign. Okay, because Facebook’s their conversion algorithm, It really optimizes and really starts working which you’re getting about 15 to 20 conversions per week.

So that’s about two to three per day. So if you’re spending only like two to three dollars on a retarding campaign, That’s probably not enough money being spent to actually get those 15 to 20 conversions. So I would do is. I would spend two to three dollars on the the traffic campaign and run that okay, So those are just kind of some of the different marketing objectives, We’ll get diamond deep into each one of these will show you guys how to set them up.

I just kind of wanted to get to that and explain like why you would use different ones and when you would and Then even kind of break down the campaigns ad set and AD level. So with that said guys, I will see you in the next article

How to Use Facebook Ads for Beginners (2020) – A Complete Facebook Ads Tutorial

I’Ve spent close to half a million dollars now on Facebook. So I feel, like I know, a thing or two.

This is this: is an old old account? You can see right here lifetime. Just so, you know a little under 6000. This is back time when I was testing and then I made more of an official business account And that’s where I do most of my spending right. So that’s for me personally in my business, But then I’ve spent another. I don’t know hundred thousand, maybe four other clients, so We’ve really gone through and nailed down a lot of the different strategies and obviously there’s always more to learn: there’s always Things that are changing with Facebook and you need to stay on top of that.

But with this I want to give you guys a quick run-through from A to Z, so Right here guys Just to give you a quick overall view these. These are all of your campaigns alright And we’re going to walk through There’s good, There’s three types of things: There’s a campaign There’s an ad set and then there’s an ad okay. So, like campaign is kind of like at the top, And then you can have multiple ad sets to the campaign, And then you can have multiple ads in each one of the ad sets right.

So just to break that down. It’S actually easiest to go through and start creating campaign to explain each one of the different Meanings of what those all are cuz like you’re, probably okay, Just what the heck are those right. So if we click on create campaign right here, all right, It’s going to See we’ll start over. It says: What’s your marketing objectives, okay, So there’s a lot of different things here And we need to choose the objective that best suits us of what we’re shooting for.

Okay, so we’ve got Brent of awareness right here, consideration or conversion, so Facebook they have so much data that they know. If they’re going to show an ad in front of somebody. They know if somebody’s going to read A article like more likely to read a article or more likely to like or comment a post like for me. I don’t really like and comment on a lot of posts, but I’ll click on a lot of links, And so they’ll probably know okay I’ll, show Jason ads that are more traffic base of people.

So traffic is basically like you Them to click to your website or to a blog post or something like that where it’s article views. That’S like posting a article on Facebook. You you just want people to read it. You don’t want necessarily them to click anywhere Engagement. That’S just like clicking that boost post button on your Facebook page. That’S to get people to like and comment and share on your posts and Facebook knows the people that are more likely to do that came and right here.

There’S lead generation, That’s using Facebook’s lead forms Which we could shoot another article another day, if you guys want a article specifically on that Just comment down below, because I can go through and show you step by 7. The cool thing about this is: It gives you their name phone email address, whatever information you want, But it automatically pulls the information that Facebook has on file so a lot of times.

You can eliminate a lot of the bogus information When it comes to lead generation. Right now Messages this is kind of a newer one, but this is really hot right now of just like, you know, they click hey, I’m interested to call to action is send message, and then it starts a conversation in your facebook, Messenger, okay and I’ve seen some Crazy awesome results with facebook, Messenger and then Conversions right here.

This is using. This is diving a little bit deeper And I’ve got some other articles on this, but using Facebook’s, pixel, Okay, So they’re pixel is basically their way of tracking everyone that comes to your website. Everyone that becomes a lead all that stuff, which we can hit a little bit on that today, But will also I’ve got. I’Ve got actually another article that I’ll link here Be able to show you guys how to actually make that happen.

Okay And how to set that up and use it on your website, so these are all the different ones. So, for this one, Let’s just say We’re going to go with traffic alright, And this obviously is based off of your goals of what you want to go through and do I didn’t really hit brand awareness. Brand Awareness is just getting like a massive reach, getting like more exposure than anything. You know it kind of like that in store visits, catalog sales.

This is a little bit more advanced And it depends on like what type of business you’re in so I’ve actually never used those Just because I’m not in that type business. But if you use you’re, working with like a physical location Like store visits, obviously are going to be huge or catalog sales. That’S probably going to Be really more to e-commerce. Alright, so let’s just say traffic right here And then we could give the campaign a name.

So we’ll just say: demo traffic campaign right So come over here and just really quick back I’ll show you, Let’s just click back right here. You can’t set a limit to the campaign. Saying hey, I don’t want to spend any more than 200 bucks, 500 bucks whatever or 50 or whatever the number is, But I typically don’t do that. I just kind of keep my eye on the campaigns and read them. So what does it continue here? Okay, So the campaign so like we’ve got the three Different pieces of the campaign, which is kind of like the overall, the highest part of the pyramid.

I guess and you’ve got ad sets where you can have multiple ad sets within the campaign. Okay and then the ad right here, So your campaign is the objective: do you want two people to read articles traffic get leads? What do you want to happen, then? Your ad set? This is where it gets into the Targeting of fining, like what’s the audience like. What’S the demographic you want to target? What’S your budget, You can see right here.

They break it down They’ve, actually they change this about a year ago And they made it really simple to kind of see all the steps like your objective. Okay, now the trap. Okay is traffic? Who do you want the audience to be? Where do you want to be placed? You want to be on your mobile phone, a Desktop on Instagram on all these different platforms, and then your budget. So it’s like hey. Do you want to spend five hours a day? You want to spend $ 100 a day like how much do you want to spend okay so over here as we come down, and we can give this a name to so we’ll say demo a Traffic ad set, and then you can.

I typically would like at this point to just give it a name based off the audience Right which we don’t know yet something just kind of create this on the fly. But it’s kind of cool because you see like the potential reach of what you’ve got so far and we’ll break it down. You’Ll see how this number right here is: 200 million. How, as we go through and break this down, It’ll shrink but you’re getting more narrow.

More specific, Okay! So when I’m running a campaign, if it’s, if it’s like a national campaign like all across like the US or Canada or whatever country you live in, I Like to get a few hundred thousand people in that campaign, because Facebook works better with more data. Okay, So, like the bigger the audience, the bigger at work, it works. However, if it gets too big if it’s getting to like three four five million, Sometimes you’ve got to like nail injure your targeting a little bit better.

If it’s like a super broad market, then great Like if you’re selling, I don’t know like Weight, loss, stuff, cuz, that’s a pretty broad market. But if you’re like in more of a specific niche, you probably want to stick around like the one to two million on the higher end right. That’S at least what I’ve seen. But then, if you’re doing like local ads. Obviously, it’s kind of based off of How many people live in your town in your city, right like you, live in Chicago versus, I don’t know like it’s.

Some small town in South Dakota right like you’re, going to Have a lot fewer people, But you don’t want to be reaching out to people in North Dakota because this is not going to be within that right. Demographic, okay, So come down here traffic. I just leave this here. Nice thing is some of the stuff. You don’t really even have to touch It’s. It’S not like it’s super important so offer I don’t do anything there and then custom audiences.

This is a little bit advanced, so we’ll hit that in another article and then four locations – Let’s say let’s say this is let’s just say this is a local, app, okay, We’re running it for a local weather, we’ll say a real estate agent. Just because That’s I work a lot in the real estate space and the mortgage space. So let’s say: okay, We’re going to come down here and we’ll say. Or do we want to be a tape? Orlando, Florida, Okay, So we’ll type in Orlando Florida and lay this? They went from 200 million down to two million people right here now.

What, if I run in a local ad, this locations of this drop down it by default, is going to say everyone in this location, But I typically would want to do people who live in this location? Okay, because it’s like hey, I just want people who live in this location and that’s good for real estate. But if you’re doing like it for a restaurant – And you just want everyone that location, because, if they’re busy and as a matter if they’re visiting You want to be able to target them as well or you can do piece people recently in this location.

So if they were there But they’re, not there anymore or people traveling this location so like if you’re like running ad for more tourists type stuff, You can do that as well. So For this one with real, We’ll just say, people who live in this location And then you can see that without narrowed down to 1.5 million, because well That is kind of a touristy spot right. So now what we could do Is we can go through and say: hey.

I only want it with people in the current city, Okay, so which that’s going to nail down to eight hundred eighty thousand, or do you say hey, I want to do more of a radius Okay, so you can go up to 50 miles or down to ten Miles so just because this is a little bit bigger city Right, we can do a 10-mile radius, okay, so now we’re going down and As far as the age range you got to kind of think of, like your target demographic, Like how old are they like somebody? If we’re doing real estate, It’s looking to find someone, That’s looking to buy or sell a home, Then 18 year olds – probably not going to be in that demographic.

So I’d say that we like to go up to at least Like a 25 26 27. Something like that, and so you can see how you’re narrowing down This as well. You Go through. You could type in languages, It’s like. If you only want to work with people that speak English or you could say, hey. I want to work. I know there’s it’s a big Hispanic market in that area, so you could just say hey. I want Spanish, So you can kind of see as two hundred twenty thousand people or you can just say, hey, You know I work with, doesn’t matter what language they speak.

If they they live in the u.S, They probably speak a little bit of English, so I’ll just leave it at that. So I’ll, typically just cuz I’d speak English. I’Ll just put that in Now guys. This is where it gets pretty cool right here: Okay, the detailed targeting okay, so the detailed targeting you could do some really cool stuff here. So What I like to do you go through and browse? You can browse by demographics, so somebody’s education, Okay, it’s education, level, They’ve got a college degree or they’ve.

Just high school or they’re in college They’re in high school They’ve got a master’s degree, So you can get pretty like bit and obviously this is not always something that you have to go through and choose, But sometimes depending on your ad you’re. Creating this can be really helpful, So it’s just good to know some of these different things that are in here or financial. You can say hey. I only want to hit higher income people, so people they’re making over half a million dollars a year.

Okay Or I can target the lower or like kind of like the middle-income or something like that or saying, hey net worth, okay, Because if you got like a high value, real estate property. For sticking with this, you probably like somebody – that’s only like – has a $ 100,000 net worth. It might not be able to afford a five-minute. Well, They can’t afford a five million dollar property. Okay, so that’s kind of cool right here and then also, I said what hits of these things, because these are like What I like found somebody stuff with some of these things in here I was like wow there’s a lot of stuff.

You could do so. I don’t want just open up your guy’s eyes And your mind is seeing some of the different things that we can do here. Alright, so you can do home ownership, Which is big for obviously real estate mortgage. You say: hey, I’m looking for people to first-time homebuyers home type life events Interests you see like okay, You want people like there’s one where let me find this There’s what old behaviors.

I think it is okay, Where it talks about people’s purchase. Behavior right this right here, So people that are like more likely to make big purchases online if you’re doing like ecommerce type stuff, see these buyer profiles, Coupon users that, like it’s crazy, how much data Facebook has because Facebook now has the data that you give them. But through Facebook’s pixel they can actually track What sites you’re going to.

They know what what links you’re clicking on What ads you’re clicking on so they’ve actually got a lot a lot. A lot of data on you, Okay, cuz. Some people last times were like well. How do they know that I, like I like skiing – I don’t like any of the skiing pages, but You know maybe you’re clicking on those those ads or something like that. So they’ve got. I mean I’m not going to go through all these, but they’ve got tons of things down here or you can just say, hey They’re, interested in real estate.

You could just type that in okay, so right here interests or Behaviors either. One of these, the difference between interested behaviors interest is basically they’ve liked. Something related to real estate on Facebook. Behaviors is kind of like they’ve, more acted upon something like they’ve, that’s more of like they click the link or something like that. It’S anyway guys, you guys could get lost in this forever.

I’M not going to dive in super deep more on this, just because we’ve already, I feel like hit that pretty well So adding the connection type this right here. I don’t always really do this, but you could say hey. I want them to be people who, like I wanted. I want to just target people who have liked my facebook page already, so it’s like that’s kind of your warm audience Or if you want to like expand a little bit.

But you know how have some of the ads that says: hey So-and-so, like you’re, one of your friends, also likes this page. This is where you can go through and do that so you say: hey friends of people who, like your page or if you want to just Expand and get new people say: hey only. Eight people Exclude people who, like my page, because this is not those like my patients only for new people coming in okay, so now coming down What we could do here so automatic placements a lot of times they have this here by default.

I like to do edit placements and Just so you can see like all the different places we can have these ads. You have it on the newsfeed, so this Mobile and desktop used to be separate, And now it’s just one of the same. If we want to make it just on mobile or just on desktop right here on device types, It says all devices recommended, which I usually leave it at that, but you can say only on mobile devices or only on desktop computers.

Okay, so that’s just something really! Quick there and Then, as we’re going down here, I like to just typically leave it on the Facebook news, feeds and uncheck everything else: okay, Just because I’ve seen the best results with that. However, I just wanted to show you some of the different places you can have these dad’s okay, So you could have it on there instant articles, There’s kind of like a newer blogging type platform Industry articles.

This is kind of like what YouTube’s already been doing. Having like the streaming articles before a article, you know right column, you guys have seen that on your desktop top right lot of times, you get cheaper ad Space for that, just because it not as many people click on that. However, It could still convert extremely well and then right here. This is where you do it on Instagram, okay, Facebook owns Instagram, and So, if you wanted to show on Instagram as well, you say hey, I want to show it in the newsfeed or at the very top on the stories.

Okay, so that’s kind of a cool little feature there. Then you’ve got all these different ones. You know, if you want to do messenger and say hey, I want them to click and go to messenger, or you can actually have it an ad. In essence, pop up in that person, Messenger box, Okay, which it’s kind of crazy right – okay, Now just scroll down here guys. I Don’t really touch this right here and then, as far as the budget, you can do a daily budget.

So I want to spend five bucks a day or a lifetime budget. Just saying hey, I Only want to spend $ 35 $ 100 $ 50 or whatever It is. I typically just like to do a daily budget. Okay and you can start out at whatever number, whatever suits your budget right now. If you have an audience of like seven hundred thirty thousand, you can start at like a higher number like you could start Technically, you know, let’s say 50 or 75 dollars a day.

I like to start normally like around twenty twenty-five dollars a day if I have like a massive massive budget, But if you’re reading this article you’re probably more of a beginner. So if you start around like the five to ten dollar range, That’s probably just that’s perfect. Right so we come in here and then this is. This is something That’s that’s cool Like what I like to do sometimes is when I start a new ad campaign, I like to give it the whole entire day so like right now, I think it’s like 6:00 a.

M.. On a Saturday. I I just woke up. I couldn’t sleep, It’s like I’m just going to shoot a article, So I like to get the full day and let it run so that I can kind of like see the whole day’s data. It’S so like. If it’s. If it’s right here so we say I like to start like, maybe on a Monday, okay and then we’ll say, look We’ll start at 8:00 a.M. Okay and then, since we’re a daily budget, Well, you can’t have a Start end date and then still a daily budget, or you could say, hey, run my ad set continuously, But I like to kind of like have a start date right, and so all that switched Up on me, so we come over here: 8:00 a.

M.. Cuz, then. So, if that’s Monday, at 8:00 a.M. On Tuesday, when I like kind of gets you my ads and stuff around like 8 or 9 a.M.., I Can see a full day’s worth now. Really quick, quick tip, if you guys are only spending $ 10 a day. I would give it probably three to four to five days before you go through and evaluate Whether your campaign is work Not because sometimes it takes a little bit of time for Facebook to go, optimize it and find the right people and the more data They have.

The better They’ll be able to optimize it for you, okay, so despite popular belief, Facebook actually wants you to succeed, because if you succeed, you spend more money with them and it’s great for everyone right. But at the same time you got to have a good ad that that really is fitting with your target demographic Which we’ll talk about ads here in a second okay. So That’s kind of like what I like to do so if it started on Monday from 8:00.

At 8:00 a.M, I could check it, Maybe that next Tuesday Just kind of get a quick glimpse of what it’s looking like. But if I’m only spend $ 10 a day But you’ll wait to like Wednesday or Thursday and really determine if it’s a winning ad or if it’s it’s, not right, okay, So coming down here, link clicks, I typically don’t really mess with any of this, and that Doesn’T matter it like, doesn’t matter what campaign I’m Ronnie, I just like leave it just because lots of Facebook’s basic stuff is kind of like already set to where you want to have it.

Okay! So then, we’ll come over here to the the ads section right and You need a business page, Whether it’s your personal and your business, one or whatever You need a business page in order to run ads, you can’t run it from your personal profile. Okay, now It’s nice because it’s super easy to go through and create your your own Facebook page free, easy takes like two seconds all right, Then, if you’re also advertised on Instagram, you can connect your Instagram account right here right now, the cool thing is is, if You haven’t existed like let’s say you made a post on your Facebook page and, and you want to use that you can just click on use existing post and That you can go through and select one of your previous post right here.

Okay, Now, if you go through and you’re creating a new ad inside a Facebook Ads manager, this is what’s called some people call it a blind ad and the reason why it’s called a blind ad Is because this is actually not going to show up on your Facebook page in the newsfeed Right so there’s the two types you can go: make the post on your Facebook page And then use it as an existing post and use that in your ad campaign or if you Inside here it actually does not show up And there’s Pros and cons to both some people don’t want it to be like if you’re, excluding people from your Facebook page, It’s only a special offer special something for people that don’t like you your page.

Yet then you could do that. Sometimes it’s nice to have it on your Facebook page, Because then you get some free, organic exposure, some likes and comments that you don’t have to pay for, and It looks like those posts, sometimes look a little bit more natural. It’S not like a straight up at Because they’re going to look a little bit different, like an ad inside of ads manager, you’re going to have like the headline The sub headline is going to like Be like I mean you’re just going to be, like you ask See that you see everyday, whereas in a post on Facebook, It’s not necessarily going to look as much like an ad and she kind of like almost, I guess, not trick people But like make them think it’s not an ad.

It is still will say sponsored at the top, But those are some quick little differences there Now we’ll hit these really quick. Just because this is a tutorial for beginners. I want to give a full Rundown of everything. It’S like the carousel. This is we’ll just kind of show: They’ve got like the little demos right here. This is where you can go through and you can have multiple little different images or pictures so like this is kind of nice if you’re in e-commerce and You’ve got like different products that they might be interested in right of like hey, We got this or this Or this, then, that you could just come down here and change these different ones Just through here you can add it, It could be an image or a article.

One thing I’d like to do in the past, with when I’m trying to get more clients is I’ll. Do a carousel ad right like this, But also have different testimonials, so all like going out four or five testimonials like Hey this person, this happened or this person. This happened this person. This happened like real estate. You could potentially feature multiple listings that you have right. Where I like to typically just do one listing, if I’m a real estate agent, Borrowing my business but that’s an option there, you do a single image ad, which I’m sure most of you guys have all seen.

Just it’s just one main core image: the single article Same type of thing, but it’s just a article. Instead of an image Slideshow, I actually have never really used slideshow, but it’s like kind of just that You can see like it says, create a looping article ad with up to ten images. Okay and then Collection right here. I’Ve never used this as well. So I’m not going to like go speak to it. I’M not an expert on it feature collection of items that open into a full-screen mobile experience; Okay, so that could be cool.

Okay, Let’s start now, I would highly recommend starting out with a single image or a single article. Here’S the I guess. Basic simplest wants to do so. Let’S say single image, So you can go in here, upload an image You can see there free stock images or browse the library all to see. I don’t even know what images I’ve got Well, she’s like the core, the made the popular profile picture. I always use on everything.

Oh so, if it looks like this guys, There’s a tool, that’s called canvas, yay and va.Com. It will see if this really quick cuz. This is important Like this ad right here. This same thing was happening like this: lady’s head was getting like cut off Cave just kind of like how my heads getting cut off. So what I did on canva is, you can go through and they’ve got all of these Dimensions that are already pre-built for you.

Okay, so, like facebook, add a YouTube thumbnail, This is what I use. Do you make all my YouTube thumbnails. This is the old Facebook, a total dimensions. Facebook cover Facebook, post, Instagram post the college different things So I’ll just hit this and then what I’ll do is I’ll upload. You can just upload the image It makes it really easy to upload. Okay – and let’s say this – is the image right here: Okay, so now, if I go through – and I throw it in right here – and We can make a little background – Let’s see what the background should be.

Maybe this cool house – That’s probably not going to fit that great. I, Like this house, is my background. Actually, Okay, and obviously this is probably Anyway, You guys can see it’s pretty easy. You just like drag and drop everything, and then you can kind of like move. You around all that stuff and then You could even type text. Okay, so test ad Will change that to be white, so they can see it a little bit better to change the font.

Okay, we just maybe throw this up in the corner, and Do it also really quick guys if you have more than 20 % Text in your facebook, add image You’re going to get disapproved Okay, so I actually typically like to have as little text if no text As possible, So this is actually typically what I do on at YouTube thumbnail This doesn’t matter but on something like this I like to like, maybe have like. Maybe it’s like hey and obviously this is not like what I do for real estate.

I’Ve got other strategies and stuff like that. But let’s say if you want to throw an image of you or somebody in there have a little background image And then you let your your headline and sub-headline do the talking? Okay, Which will show you guys here in a second now We can download this and Upload it into Facebook, Ads manager. Well, it’s just for this one, I’m just going to browse the library.

I want to show you guys that really quick, Add images we’ll just use something right here that we’ve already got in place. I Will just use this: It’s a it’s a home right, okay! So then we’ll throw in the URL like let’s say, for this example, We’re just doing it to Google. Obviously, you’re not you’re, going to put in the URL of your Your landing page and and I’ll hit another article on that. But you don’t want to send it to your main website or your blog.

It you’re going to waste a lot of money, You’re not going to generate any leads, but obviously it depends on what your goal is right. That campaign objective up here. So if you just want people to read your blog post, then yeah, you could just send them to your blog right. But if you want to generate leads, you want to send to a landing page which all I’ll have another article on that. But that’s kind of where we want to go there, so the text right here The Facebook’s made this pretty easy guys You just kind of go through okay.

What’S the website, you want to send people to what’s the text, you can say test text Copy right here. This is just like your main Facebook post, like what you want to say in there. You can make this as long as you want, can make it like a long long story. You can make it very quick, and what I like to do here, Just is, is a tutorial kind of for beginners, like letting you know how I like to write my my eat.

My copy Excuse me guys, so I like to go through first thing. I like to do is call out my audience. Second thing I like to do is do something to pique their interest and To give them kind of a call to action and then add some value and then another call to action so like, for example, Let’s say Orlando Homeowners, Okay, so that’s calling out my audience. Okay, so I’m targeting people in Orlando And if you’re a homeowner and I can go through back in my interest and say hey – I only want people that are homeowners, so you have specific.

But then, if you’re live in Orlando and your homeowner – and you see Orlando homeowners, That’s going to peak your attention right, that’s going to be like oh hey! This is for me, You could say. Are you looking to sell your home in the Next three to six months? Okay! So now that’s like weeding out through Orlando homeowners, kay, If you’re not looking to sell your home You’re going to keep scrolling You’re done.

I’M not talking to you Say. Are you looking to sell your home in the next three to six months and then, and obviously this I’m just creating this on the fly You could say like Alright look like let’s say, I’ve got somebody looking to buy a home Okay, I have a family of Three looking to purchase a home in the I don’t know where Lana that well so we’ll just say blank Area so like if you were wanting to get like specific to like a community, you know Who is hoping to purchase their Dream home within the next Few Months, okay and then we can say like full details, click here And then we can have a link, so we’re going to have the link.

So if they click on this image right here, That’s going to take them to the the site, but also Is sometimes nice. Add the link inside this copy too, because there’s a reading it lot of times people read Ads or anything online with their mouse. I don’t but a lot of times people do, and so, if you’re they’re going through and they’re like, Oh well, Do you look here? It’S just easy to click right, and So you can add like sometimes it can be as simple and click quick as that or you can add a little bit more.

Sometimes I typically just leave it at that. So light-cone have the audience and then of those people hey. Are you looking to sell your home next 36 months, we’re weaning it down and then we’re adding like it’s like a little value. Add like hey guys, get like if you’re going to sell. I’Ve Already got a family of three looking to purchase a home in this specific area. Now, obviously you don’t want to like make that up.

You want to be like legit, But you want to be. Some value. Add there to get them to be like to pique their interest of like okay, What separates you from all the other real sage and stuff like? Why would I want to sell my home with you? You know I mean so then For the headline. This is where that google spot is going to be. We can say, are you Yeah we’ll just say? Are you looking to sell your home okay and that’s going to pop up right there and Then we could say: hey call to action.

Learn more. We’Ve got several ones right here, We’d say no button. I don’t want it to look like an out-of-time, so we’re just going to say hey just like. Are you looking to sell your home or read more so this is kind of depends on like what your goal is right a Lot of times. I will typically do just learn more Just because, like it kind of like it’s, not Something of like hey, download now or donate now, or Buy Now or sign up or something like that, That’s a little bit you put a guard up or as learn more, It’s Like most people are fine Learning a little bit more about something right: Okay, so we’ll just actually I didn’t click that learn more, so leave it at that.

Okay And then I I took – we don’t hit this and then this display light link. You can change that if you want, I typically just leave it in then a newsfeed link in description, so we can say test Copy right here. That’S going to Pop up down here as your sub headline. This is the mobile view. You can see mobile newsfeed and this is only going to show up on your desktop newsfeed. So if we go through and we Scroll and hit this, this is going to show all the difference ad placements that we chose in the ad set level.

Okay, So we chose news feeds, It’s going to show this one right here, and this is another view of it. Okay, And this is what its going to look like on your desktop newsfeed, so I can see test copy. Let’S say we can say Orlando home owners. Looking to sell in the next three to six months, I usually do this like a little shortened version of what I’m talking about here. Okay, so It says Earl an emotionally going to sell in the next three six months.

We have a family Looking to buy something like that, and this is like learn more okay, So just like a quick, So I’ll give them they’re scrolling through and they kind of Skim past. All this then they see this. Are you looking to sell your home Line of home or just looking to sell the next few six months We have a family looking to buy and they’re like? Oh, What’s this all about, learn more, They go to your website, okay and then down here.

All this URL parameters – That’s super advanced stuff. You don’t need to mess with that. Honestly, I don’t really miss that even still – and I’ve spent a couple thousand dollars a day on Facebook, So facebook pics will leave that leave this I’ll leave. All that use hit confirm Good to go Okay, so some other little last tidbits of things if we come over here to ads manager. This is so like this is going to Be.

Will save leave this page okay, so This is taking you back to this area. You can filter through stuff by lifetime. You want to see everything for the whole lifetime Or you can see how your campaigns just performing today or last 7 days lost times. Last 7 days You got ta, keep in mind, It doesn’t show the day of ok. So that’s just going to show the last seven full days or last 14, full days Last times I like to look at it at the last seven days, Okay and see what it’s like this.

So you can see I’m not running any ads And then you kind of mix it up and say like okay, I want to see it by Performance or delivery, so delivery would be like how many people are being reached thrive or engagement. How many like Reactions comments, shares links like all the different information there, so you can kind of like Go through and scroll through what, by what you want to see it, and then you can see here, you can see your campaigns ad sets and ads Okay.

So if you want to go through and say hey I want to get. I want to nail down on a specific like let’s say this foreclosure leads. This is only going to show the ad sets that are within that campaign and then, if we click on this, it’s going to Just dive deeper. So, like you got campaign you clicked on so it says one selected, Adsense, There’s only one ad set in this campaign. We click on this, so it just dives deeper now We’re at the ad level.

So there’s just this one ad and if you’re like crap, I want to like see what it looks like. I can’t remember what it looks like we just hit this. It will hit preview and it’s going to pop up what this looks like a So we kind of see what this looks like. If you want to see what it looks like actually in the newsfeed You’re going to hit Hey click on this say Facebook post with comments, and This will pop up what this actually looks like.

So if you wanted to like, like it yourself right there, you could just throw in a like right there and This kind of it switches between what profiles or pages you have on your account. I’Ve got a lot. You probably don’t have as many as me. Okay, so those are some different things and then also up here, this hamburger menu, You get all tools. This goes and tot kind of takes. You in different Aspects like you can create different custom audience so, like I’ve got a article on this.

Actually, where you can upload your All of your contacts into Facebook, you know Maps their name phone and email with the name phone email, But they have a file with Facebook, which is kind of cool Facebook, pixels, Which I’ve got a article on that’ll out of here. As well On tracking, so that’s kind of cool. So if you guys all add these articles like, if you guys, click in that top section, Where there’s like the little circle with the eye I’ll have some of those different articles here.

So you guys can kind of explore some more of these different things, And then this is where you can go set up like the billing and all at them, Like the admin type stuff, and so anyway, I’m not going to hit all these things. This is just quick. Obviously it’s a little bit longer tutorial, But anyway, if you guys want to learn something specific, there’s something that I didn’t cover in today’s article.

Facebook’s Social Media Ad Specifications

Facebook ads are a fantastic way to get your products and services out there on the largest social media platform in the world. With an audience of 2.23 billion active users, there’s a lot of potential in social media advertising and you’d be foolish not to use the platform to your advantage.

However, most people don’t understand Facebook ads or the specifications that you need to follow to have your ads placed on the site. So, to help you out, we’re going to talk about Facebook ads, their advantages and also list four specifications that you need to follow in order to have a successful marketing campaign on the site.

Social Media Signals

Facebook Social Feed Ad Specifications

To comply with Facebook’s standards, they’ve released a list of design specifications that need to be followed if your advertisement is going to be eligible for the site.

Media Recommendations

  • File type JPG or PNG
  • Image ratio at 9:16 or 16:9
  • Resolution be as high as possible
  • Images that consist of 20% text or more may be less successful
  • Text is limited to 125 characters

The JPG and PNG file types are the most popular when it comes to Facebook advertisements. They’re the most common image file types on the internet, but PNG can offer a slightly better quality with less quality loss from compression.

The image ratio is important so that your advertisement does not seem stretched when place on Facebook’s website. 16:9 and 9:16 resolutions are the most common, as 16:9 is also the standard screen ratio for most websites and phones.

It’s also important to have a high resolution so that the image quality is good. We recommend at least as 1280 x 720 pixel ratio for most advertisements, or 720 x 1280 if you’re aiming for a 9:16 ratio. Facebook requires at least 600 x 600, but these will appear stretched in certain places, hence their recommendation for having an image ratio of 16:9 or 9:16.

Images that have too much text are also frowned upon. This is because advertisements should be quick and snappy so that anyone browsing will catch them, see the message and then hopefully be hooked. If there is too much text, then the message of your advertisement is lost.

Facebook Marketplace Ad Specifications

Marketplace ads are a fantastic way to show off certain products or services that you offer.

Media Recommendations

    • File type JPG or PNG
    • Image ratio at 9:16 or 16:9
    • Resolution be as high as possible
    • Images that consist of 20% text or more may be less successful
    • Text is limited to 125 characters

Much like Facebook feed ads, the recommendations are virtually the same for marketplace ads. However, it’s good to keep in mind that when there are links involved, the images should be cropped and have a recommended resolution of at least 1,200 x 628. The minimum resolution requirements are, again, 600 x 600, but a higher resolution image will result in a better user experience.

Facebook Video Feed Specifications

They say that pictures can tell a thousand words. If that’s true, then videos are the king of advertising if they can show around 30 pictures a second.

Media Recommendations

  • Video ratio of 9:16 or 16:9
  • H.264 compression
  • Fixed frame rate
  • AAC audio compression at 128+ kbps
  • Resolution as high as possible
  • Maximum video size of 4 GB
  • Minimum video length of 1 second
  • Maximum video length of 240 minutes
  • Video captions recommended
  • Sound recommended
  • Thumbnails with minimum text
  • Vertical videos can be masked to 2:3

Video advertisements are much more technical due to the recommendations that you should meet. However, they’re fantastic for engagement and converting leads, especially if you have a talented video director working for you.

The H.264 compression and fixed frame rate options are available in most modern video editing software. Although Facebook does support long videos (up to 240 minutes!) you’d be hard-pressed to balance the quality and fit it under 4 GB. In addition, most people won’t want to watch an advert that’s 4 hours long, so try and keep it short if possible.

Most mobile users will have their phone muted or headphones plugged in but in their pocket, so there’s a good chance that they won’t have sound available. As a result, you want the message to be clear and simple to understand, even without text.

Facebook Carousel Ad Specifications

Carousel ads are fantastic at combining picture and video advertisements into a single ad.

Media Recommendations

  • Minimum of 2 cards
  • Maximum of 10 cards
  • File type JPG or PNG
  • Video maximum size 4 GB
  • Resolution at least 1080 x 1080

Carousel ads should follow the recommended design specifications of the previous advertisement types. Ensure that you stick with a consistent aspect ratio throughout all your propose carousel ads to make it seamless and neat.
