Facebook Ads Domination Course

Module 1

Introduction to Facebook Ads

In this module, you’ll learn the basics of Facebook Ads and how you can get started with advertising on Facebook.  You’ve probably read a lot of success stories on the Internet of marketers spending a few hundred pounds and earning tens of thousands in return. 

That sounds like a crazy return on investment (ROI), right? Well, not really.  With Facebook Ads, it’s possible to replicate these successful marketers’ techniques so you too can experience an extraordinary ROI!

There’s no denying the fact that when it comes to marketing and advertising your business on social media, Facebook is the way to go.  With over 2 billion users logging in to Facebook every month from all corners of the globe, Facebook is king of social media.  Whether you want to reach people in your town or city or people on the other side of the world, it’s possible with Facebook ads. 


What Exactly Are Facebook Ads?

If you scroll down your Facebook news feed, you’ll most probably see a post which says Sponsored or Suggested Post on it.  Or if you’re on a desktop computer, you’ll see ads on the right side of your screen.  You’ll even see in-stream video ads while you’re watching a video on Facebook. 

Also, you’ll see ads or sponsored messages on Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and the Audience Network.  These adverts are known as Facebook ads. 

Individuals, small businesses, and large corporations pay Facebook billions of pounds a year to show their ads to Facebook users.  And it’s not surprising because compared to other platforms, Facebook gives their advertisers the best bang for their buck.


Why Should You Advertise on Facebook?

Before I show you how you can get started with Facebook ads, let me go through a few reasons why you should consider investing in this platform. 

1.  Your potential customers and clients are all on Facebook.

Well, maybe not all.  But some, if not most of them, will be on Facebook.  Not everyone likes Facebook, but everyone who’s ever heard of this thing called the Internet will have heard of Facebook.  Whether you’re looking to target people in your location or another continent, it’s very easy to do so on Facebook. 

2.  Hyper-targeting is a Facebook Ads specialty.

When you sign up for a Facebook account, you give Facebook a wealth of information about yourself.  Advertisers can then target you based on the information you provide.  Other advertising platforms don’t come anywhere near Facebook ads’ targeting options. 

For instance, you can target people based on their location, their hobbies, their favourite sports teams, their language, their education, their life status, their work, their finances, their travel preferences, and so much more. 

3.  Facebook Ads won’t get you bankrupt.

Unless, of course, you give Facebook all your money.  But that’s not a very wise business decision, is it? With Facebook ads, you can spend a few pounds each day, and Facebook is not going to complain about it. 

If you compare the amount that you’ll spend advertising on Google AdWords, Bing ads, native ads, banner ads, billboard or newspaper advertising, you’re literally going to save a fortune on Facebook! With the amount you’ll save, you’ll be able to reach even more of your target market, that is, you can quickly scale your budget and get in front of more people. 

4.  You can measure your Facebook ads results.

You’re not going to be playing the guessing game with Facebook ads.  The platform is very transparent, and you can see how many impressions, clicks, and conversions your ads are receiving in real-time.  To be able to measure your results, you do need to add the Facebook pixel to your website. 

This snippet of code is all you need to track important activities on your website – who’s buying, who’s signed up to your list, who’s visited and bounced off your site without doing anything, etc. 

5.  Facebook advertising can grow your website traffic and foot traffic, too.

With Facebook ads, you can direct people to do anything you want.  For example, if you want them to visit your site, simply include the right call of action to your ad.  If you want them to drop by your physical store, let them know.  If you make your ad enticing enough and give people what they want (by addressing their pain points), then you make it easy for them to follow your call to action. 

6.  You can quickly get your brand in front of many people.

It’s possible to get your ad in front of all 2 billion+ Facebook users.  You just need to have very deep pockets.  Of course, not everyone will be interested in your brand, and what you do so this may lead to high costs.  In Facebook ads, the goal is to get in front of the right audience, not just any audience. 

With the right audience, people will be more receptive to what you’re offering.  They’ll engage more with your ad, and this will lead to lower Facebook ad costs. 

7.  Facebook ads are more effective than organic Facebook marketing.

In the old days, you could simply put up a new Facebook page, and pay a few bucks to have people like your page.  When you publish a new post on your page, a huge percentage of your fans and followers see your update in their news feeds.  Today, it’s a different story. 

With so many friends and so many pages and groups Facebook users join, the news feed has become crowded, and organic reach has dropped significantly.  If you want to reach your target audience, it’s best to just pay Facebook instead of needlessly twiddling your thumbs waiting for your fans and followers to like your new post.
