Just some housekeeping, I just want to kind of get this out of the way, as you guys can see here on my screen. I am wrapping up. I’m working on a Facebook Ads live train for you guys I’m going to be doing next Wednesday, So Wednesday July 18th, at 12 p.M. Eastern time, 9 a.M. Pacific time So mark that down on you guys, calendars also I’ll, add a link down below in the description As well as in the comments that you guys can go through and register for that, because I share a lot of my blog different Facebook ad strategies, but I think it’ll be beneficial To break down some of the things that I do like the exact strides.
I use and also be able to do it live, So you guys can ask me questions and I can kind of give you feedback and answers and let you guys kind of know what I’m Doing on the daily basis. So if you guys want to attend that, There’s a link down below to register for that training in the description as well as in the comments and if you guys are reading This after July 18th, which I’m sure a lot of you guys are because that’s in About a week and a half I’ll add the link to the replay to that training, So you guys can go through read that and still take advantage of every now, let’s dive into this guys.
So this is the this image right here, where I’ve got this pulled up this little segment. That is part of that live training, and You look at like the red ocean versus the blue ocean, And this is really like what I want to break down. Explain you guys when it comes to Facebook Ads Targeting so when you’re going through and you’re targeting with Facebook’s interests, so you’re targeting homeowners Are you’re targeting real estate agents or you’re targeting like weight loss or people interested in fitness? That’s a red ocean guys Like there are so many people that go in like Facebook’s made it super easy to go through, Create an ads campaign, and then you know you go and choose your targeting.
You choose the age group. You choose all that stuff, But with it being so easy you’re literally in a red ocean Just competing with everyone, It’s out there, Okay, so the strides I want to show you guys in today’s article is Taking over to the blue ocean right like this. Is I don’t even ever use Facebook ads interest targeting or any of those little demographics? Anything like that in my ads and when I tell people that even like advanced Facebook, marketers are like what like? What do you even do Like? How is that possible? You don’t use interest targeting Okay Now there there’s something: that’s called Look-alike audiences and if you guys have heard of look like audiences, this is going to be a very different article.
It’s going to be a lot more unique than you probably have even heard or thought before. So just keep that in mind, But this is going to take you from that red ocean of competing with literally every other person out there. That’s advertising on Facebook To this blue ocean now also guys is a special favor to you guys. I was talking with my brother. He readed my blog too, and he kind of like started.
Business He’s got his Facebook guys in the last stuff, And he says sometimes I go way too fast to explain things So I’ll try to go a little bit slower I’ll, try to go through break down everything step by step and photos. You guys are like hey. You like that fast pace just put on like one and a half speed All right. So, let’s jump over to the Facebook Ads manager, because this is really key when we’re going through and setting up our Facebook ads and actually first really quick.
This is another slide I forgot about in the presentation. This is the exact strategy of how I went through, and this is two years ago So June of 2016. I made less than $ 1500 that month for my business and then you can see I start implementing the strategy in August. So, two months later, Okay, So August, I did if you can see the right there, It’s probably a little small, It’s a little over $ 8,000 Okay, so that was the first month.
So I went from 1500. So in essence, I almost call that zero, because I was obviously with ad spend all that stuff You’re, not really making any money. And then I went up to $ 8,000 and then, from August of 2016 to October of 2016 October 2016. I went and did over $ 25,000 in revenue for the month. Okay, So guys. This is a way that you can go through and grow your business extremely fast and once again, If you guys want to jump on this live training or if you’re reading the the kind of like this later after July 18th click down below I’ll have the registration Link to go regi for that live training or for the replay, whatever you want to go through and read, so You guys can see Some of these strategies broken down in a lot more detail, then I’m even ever covered on my youtube blog Okay.
So, let’s just jump over here to Facebook, Okay, now in Facebook, what we’re going to do is come over here to the ads manager. Okay, Now a look like audience: Let’s just break this down right, Let’s jump! Actually, I’ve cut it another good slide, So Facebook, anyone that is your existing customer. So I’ve got like Jim right here, Jim from the office right, So Jim he’s going to go through and buy something from your business Right or maybe you haven’t your like brand new business, And so you haven’t sold anything but he’s a lead or some of the Shown interest in your business, Okay, now, Facebook, the cool thing is, is they literally know so much information about Jim Okay? So they know that, like he’s a male the age like if he’s married or not, if he’s college educated, I know how much money he’s making.
He knows they know pretty much for the most part, What products he’s bought online, because a lot of companies they’ll use the Facebook pixel okay to track whether people have become leads if they purchased something and so based on what ads people are clicking on and Based On what products they’re purchasing Facebook’s got a pretty good overall idea of what’s happening Kay, They know like okay, he likes basketball, He reades the office right, So they know all this information, and so now what we do is we take Jim, okay or our existing customers Or clients or leads, or Even people that, like maybe you don’t, have customers yet cuz, you’re brand new or maybe don’t have lee Juck’s you’re brand new, but people, maybe that, like your Facebook, page or people, even that have gone through and readed a article that you’ve Posted on your Facebook page kay, that’s like an audience of people and then what Facebook does is what we call a 1 % look-alike audience.
So they’re going to go, find 2 million people, or sometimes even more, that looked just like Jim Okay, so but whether they’re male like it’s not going to necessarily be only males or only females or whatever. Although you can go through and target whether it’s males or females but they’re going to find out, Okay, what’s his average, You know salary which it’s crazy, But they actually have a lot of data on how much money you most likely make okay And they know like What the products you purchase, what you like, what your behaviors are online.
What links you click on what you don’t Click on. They know all this information, So Facebook they go and they create this look like audience of people that are very, very Similar to Jim. Okay. So then, what they’re going to do? Is you go take this ad? You show it to this look-alike audience. Okay And then your ads become even more Profitable because you’re able to go through and scale things that much more so if before you were going through and showing your ads just to your existing clients or your existing leads or existing database and you’re spending, maybe like.
Let’s say five dollars a day With this, because you have now an audience of two million plus people you’re able to go through and scale it up to $ 75, a day or $ 100 a day or two hundred five hundred or even a thousand dollars per Day and So you’re able to go through and make a lot more money. Okay, so hopefully that kind of like break broke that down and that kind of like makes some sense. But let’s jump in Back over here to the Facebook Ads manager and show you guys exactly How this actually happens case.
So we’re going to do is come over here to the search bar And we’re going to type in audiences. You can see it’s already popped up right there, But if it’s not showing up right here, we’re just going to type in audiences, Okay, cuz. First, what we need to do before we create a look-alike audience is we need a create, an audience Right that we’re going to say, Hey. We want to create a look like audience that looks like these people.
So Before we go through create the look like audience. We need to go through and say: hey, Jim is our ideal. Customer ideal lead our ideal client and we want you to create two million people: 3 million 4 million. Whatever The number is a people just like Jim okay, So basically you’re going to go through. You were just going to create an audience, will just say: custom audience right here: Okay and then you can go through and like customer file, You can upload their emails or their phone numbers.
You can say website traffic. So if you’ve got a blog, if you’ve got a website, a landing page, whatever You’ve got you can go through and throw the Facebook pixel on This exact website and I’ll link out to my tutorial on how to get that Facebook pixel installed Because it walks you through step by step and then you’ve got even engagement. Like let’s say you don’t have any clients, any customers whatsoever, No leads or anything and you’re just starting out brand new, you say Hey.
I want to just target people who have readed a article that I posted on my Facebook page. So let’s just say that, for example, it’s just say a article And then we could come in here and we say we want to target anyone who is viewed at least read 25 % of my article okay, because sometimes like three seconds of your article. It’s someone just scrolling through in the article autoplays and so they’re, not really reading it 10 seconds, Depending on how long your article is.
That can actually be a really good option if it’s only a minute long, they read 10 seconds Of the 60 seconds. That’s a pretty good percentage of the article, but I typically like to do 25 or even 50 % To get a bigger audience That then we can go through and create a look like audience after ok He’s like, if you think about it. If we just give Facebook one data point, so basically we say hey only Jim.
I want you to create. It looked like audience of people that only look like Jim There’s, not really a lot of information to go off of right, like it’s just that one person, whereas if you have 30 people Okay, They find these averages of what those people like their ages, their Income, Their interests all that stuff and they’re able to get you a lot better data, and then, if you have a hundred people or a thousand or the more people That easier, it is to go through and get this data put together and have this Hotter audience that You’re able to go through and mark it with your Facebook Ads.
So with that said, I like to do kind of like a 25 percent or 50 percent, So I’ll just do 25 percent here And then we choose the the article right here actually up here. Sorry guys choose the article So we’re on to choose the Facebook page So we’ll come down here. All I think you’ve got my main Facebook page on here. So we’ll choose this and then you kind of look at the articles right. So you can see the three second article views So like if we’ve gotten these different people, we’ve got.
You know. Eight thousand people have readed this article, so this is probably one that I probably want to go through and create a custom audience often because there’s going to be a lot of data points like if there’s 8,000 8200 article views, there are three seconds We’re probably going To have you know four or five thousand people that have readed 25 % of this article? Okay, so we’re just going to go like this.
We’re going to choose that we’re going to hit, confirm, Okay and then we’re just going to give it a name. We’ll say 25 % article view and then I would usually do the name of Video, like whatever you want to call it. That’s kind of like what I like to do And then the nice thing is, you can do like hey everyone. Let’s read it in the last 365 days or if you want it like more recent, like hotter market, you could say hey in the last seven days last 30 days last two days, even so, if this one I’m just going to actually Do last 30 days, because If somebody’s read this article in the last 30 days, they probably at least remember it somewhat right, probably seven days or even 24 hours, 48 hours is even more ideal, but they probably at least remember Like at least readed it, whereas like if it’s too long ago, If it was like 200 days ago, six months or whatever They’re, probably not even going to remember you the article or anything else, I’m going to create this audience and Now what we do is Facebook is going to go and they’re going to populate this, and it’s Going to take a second or whatever, but we could say, hey, create an ad using this audience or Expand your audience.
Okay, so we’re going to click on, expand your audience, And this is how we can create a look-alike audience right here. So the source is the audience of everyone. That’s viewed the article At least 25 %. Can I think that is actually a short article is like 30 seconds long, so Really didn’t have to read a lot. Just probably like 10 seconds 10 seconds Actually probably would have been a better audience to go with, and then we could say hey.
I only want to target people in the United States and typically, what I like to do when I’m starting out is just do a 1 % look like audience. Okay, Now you can scale up to 2 %. You can see that number went to 4.3 million. The 3 % to 4 %, but the the larger the audience, the less accurate the data, and Typically with a 1 % look like audience of you, know: 2.2 million people. You can have your ads running for a fairly long time to that audience, even spending like $ 100 a day and And you’re still totally good, like that’s a pretty good size, audience.
Okay! So now we’re just going to go through and click create audience right here And so it’s going to go through populate the audience You can see up here kind of in the background It says fewer than so. This is the audience We just create the custom audience. So 25 percent of article view There’s a fewer than a thousand, but it’s still populating Okay. So it’s going to take a little bit of time. It could take a couple hours.
It can take as long as 24 hours to go through and populate this audience and then, but you don’t have to wait To go through and create a look-alike audience. Okay, So that’s one thing to really keep in mind. Then you can see this audience right. Here is updating, They look like audience, but it told us is going to be about 2.2 million people once it’s finalized and once that audience is completely updated.
So We really don’t have to wait to go through and create our Facebook ad campaign. We can jump in and start creating an actual campaign, So I want to show you guys exactly how I do this, how I don’t use any Facebook Ads interest targeting or any of that And I’ll actually set up a campaign right here with you guys. So we’ve got this custom audience right here. Okay, that we created we’ve got to look like audience and, if you don’t, if you’ve already got an audience that you want to create a look like audience off of, you can just come here and Click on this.
So check that you just hit actions and you say, create a look like okay, so that’s another way to go through and do that if you’re like well, I’ve already got an audience and I don’t really know how to do that, because it’s not taking me to Do the same flow? That’s another way you can go through and do that? Okay. So now what we’re going to do is we’re going to come back up here to this little hamburger menu? Okay, we’re going to go back to the ads manager to go through and create a Facebook Ads campaign.
Okay, so we’re just going to click on this green button. Right here create a campaign, makes it super simple And then for this one. I’ve got all these articles guys on like which objective to use, but this is not necessarily on that’s Training, so I’m not really going to dive in all that I’ll add another article to Kind of like what marketing objective you really want to choose. But let’s say for this: one We want to generate leads, So we’re going to go with conversions here.
Okay, so we’ll just click on conversions and then we give it a name. Okay, so we’ll say, conversions and we’ll say it’s a demo campaign, because it is obviously and now we’ll hit continue, and Then you can name your ad set for this one, I’m not really going to worry about it and then through the website. Okay, look like! Ideally, you need to go through and install your Facebook pixel, like I said I added a article to that up in like the little the top corner, so you guys can go through and check that out, But we’ll go through and we’ll choose The lead conversion right.
There takes we want to go through and generate leads, then we come down here to this Targeting, and this is typically where most people will go in here and they’ll type in homeowners, right, Where it’s like 98 million people that are homeowners and and the homeowners association. So a lot of these interests and demographics and all this stuff is what Facebook is taking away and that’s why so many people are completely freaking out because they’re like well, It’s not going to work for a real estate anymore.
It’s not going to work for this anymore, or that anymore, like It still is guys, can actually work way better. Once you kind of learn and nail down this solution that I’m showing you guys right here because, Like I showed you guys a little bit earlier, You’re not competing with everyone in that red ocean, Okay! So now all we got to do. Is we come here to the custom audiences because remember we create that custom audience? Then we created that look-alike audience from the custom audience right.
So we had. You know all those people like what we call Jim right and then create that look like audience, some people that look like Jim or very similar to him, and we feel like right here and then you can see right here. The look-alike 1 % us ok, 25 % article view and then name it article. Okay, you can see the size, It says fewer than a thousand people, That’s just because it’s still pre-populating.
So you don’t need to worry about that. So we click on that. And then it’s going to say, potential reach unavailable this, that’s just because we just created it. So Don’t worry, Don’t freak out like I do this all the time guys and it You know, pre populate and once it’s populated, it’ll update and Facebook will just automatically everything together. Okay, So now we come down here and honestly, I don’t really even touch the age or even the gender, Because Facebook’s already identified these people that look like this ideal custom audience.
Okay, so Another way to look at this guys – Let’s say we’re not doing article views but, let’s say like you’re a real estate agent, because I know I’ve got a lot of real estate agents that read this blog as well. What you would want to do is go and have past clients or pass leads of people that you’ve worked with and Get as big of a audience as possible, Whether that’s a hundred people, a thousand people, five thousand people – maybe you go and collectively get leads of Past clients of People, everyone in your office or your real estate team or whatever just to get this ideal Demographic and then upload it just like we showed you guys with the custom audience and then create a look like audience off of those People.
Okay. So that’s really like an ideal way to go through And set this up, especially like. Let’s say you Kind of like hit the high end homes market right up, people that buy in one or two or three million dollar homes. That’s a really good way to go through And give facebook this audience and this data of people they can create a look like audience off of that You’re going to have similar incomes, similar behavior, similar, like interests of buying those expensive homes.
Okay, so that’s just like one thing: I wanted to kind of share there So languages. I don’t touch anything detailed targeting guys. I really don’t even touch any of this Okay and then this is one where I always unchecked. I just have seen it works better and, like I’m tested a lot, So I would just highly recommend that and then coming down here as far as placements go You guys know if you guys been reading this blog, I like to come down to edit placements and I’d like to just target the Facebook news feeds and Then even if you’re, really what wanted to branch out and target more people, you can even do the Instagram news feeds Okay.
Now, once you go through, and it’s all about testing right like once, you find that okay, The Facebook news feeds are working, The Instagram news feeds are working, You can go through and test out other placements, Like don’t don’t think like this is the only way to Do it, I have some campaigns where I go through and I’ll test out all the different placements, But I like to first start with a smaller amount, So I usually start like with fifty dollars a day.
The test out is, is this even a winning ad or people are going to react and engage with this within this audience. So I’ll start at the Facebook news feeds, because I know that works the best and then from there once. I know it works Then I’ll expand it to you know maybe 100 200 dollars a day and I’ll hit more of these placements. Okay, so now coming down, We hit this the budget and schedule. Obviously this depends on your guys budget.
Literally, you can go through and start with as much as $ 100 a day, Just fine with the two million audience person audience Lots. You guys might not have that budget right away And if you don’t know, if your ads really going to convert or not, I probably want to start there. I’d probably start at depending on your budget. I’d probably start like twenty twenty-five dollars or even ten dollars. If you’ve got a smaller budget right and Ten dollars a day with the two million person audience guys, You can let that run pretty much all year round and you’re not going to see that ad really fatigue, because it’s a pretty big audience For such a small Daily budget for your ad spend Okay, So coming down, We just do conversions and then that’s it guys.
We just hit continue. We set up the ad hit, confirm, confirm, purchase and we are done. I think it’s going to have me name the, maybe name the thing or something like that. Much Weiss, not going me hit continue. Oh my it’s just my internet there. So so anyway, we go create the ad and, Let’s just say we’re going to use an existing post just so we can go through this whole process for you guys. So let’s say this post right here that I did and Then I just hit confirm now.
It’s saying, like my my ad is not going to run because I’ve got way too much text Which I typically wouldn’t run this exact post as an ad or anything like that. So the objective of campaign requires creative with external link or call to action Yeah. So I got out of like a link and all that stuff. But anyway you guys kind of get the idea of what’s going on if going through and creating that your own BlueMotion.
Okay, because you are the only person that has that custom data of your past clients, your past leads people have interacted with your facebook page they’ve shown interest in you, Okay, so now, instead of competing with that red ocean of everyone of that Interest, targeting their Facebook’s Doing away with a lot of it Anyway, this is the best strategy to go through and use for your business Right.
So also with that said guys, if you guys are brand new here to the blog, If you guys like this article first of all, give it a thumbs up comment down below, I did go a little bit slower.

But this past week for the fourth of July, my wife and I went with her family out to Oklahoma to the lake out there Oklahoma of all places.
It was crazy, but it was actually really nice fun time, But I just kind of sound the boat. So that’s why I haven’t shot any articles last week or two but the whole week.
