After you click on the ‘Create An Ad Button’ you will see this screen: I’ll show you a ‘REAL’ ad we will place for driving traffic to a website – giving away a FREE report on real estate trends.

Note: Free reports are a great “traffic magnet” to generate interest. You could also use free videos, webinar, events, white papers, and case studies.

Second Note: You can also drive traffic to your own Facebook Business Page if you have one.

The above illustration shows you the real live example of placing an ad.

Before we continue with the above example ad let me explain targeting.

To target all the users in the U.S., the estimated reach of over 120 million people!!

Now as we all know, you’ll get a better return on investment to target more close to where your customers are.

The analogy is this: You have a huge ocean to fish in, but you want to go to that one part of the ocean where the type of fish are that you want.

THE

FACEBOOK ADVERTISING FIVE STEP FORMULA

TO GET MORE TRAFFIC

One of your main success activities should be how to target your market properly.

There are several different factors you can use to narrow things down, including location targeting, education targeting, age targeting, keyword targeting, connection targeting, and sex targeting.

It’s kind of amazing!

You can target by location at the city level, radius level, country level, or state level.

This super-location targeting makes the ads very effective for local businesses!

You can use education targeting down to where the person went or is going to school and even their major. Job targeting can work quite nicely as well, as you will find that those in certain industries will be most interested in your product or service. Again, it is in your best interest to learn everything you can about the market you are trying to sell to.

Relationship targeting is another interesting and important method. Perhaps your products or services are better geared towards people who are single. You can certainly make that distinction through Facebook ads. You can also target people who are engaged or already married. Do keep in mind that some people do not specify this information, and your ads will not appear to them if you choose to target based on the relationship category.

A relatively new feature is that you can target ads based on connections made within Facebook. This can include people who are attending certain events, those who “like” certain pages or things, those who are using certain apps, and so on.

You can target keywords based on favorite TV shows, movies, occupation, hobbies, books, music, sports, and more. Consider what things your prospective customers like. Think about what really interests them the most, and target keywords based on that.

TO GET MORE TRAFFIC

Note that you can even combine these different requirements for targeting down to incredible levels. For instance, you can target someone of a certain age, sex, marital status, and favorite book! It's almost scary how targeted these ads can become. It's definitely good for business, because as we all know having a message to market match is key. You won’t be wasting money on people who will never be interested in what you have to offer.

So let’s do get back to our example ad:

After you hit the “Continue” button above…you will see the following screen: Now the reach is over 120 million so let’s target a bit more to where “the fish” are shall we? The next illustration shows how I entered:

 A city (Tampa)

 A radius of the city (within 25 miles of Tampa)

 Males between age 35 to 55

 Likes of ‘travel’ (typically my target market enjoys travelling)

And so now, the ‘estimated reach’ has gone from over 120 million to just over 7,000

as shown below:

You will also have the ability to further target as shown below: In this example, I won’t select any of the options above but it shows you how “micro-targeted” you can get!

Now you are at the step where you can decide when and for what price to advertise.

It is a strong marketing suggestion that you already know “how much are you willing to pay for a lead”. For example, if 100 people click on your ad, and 3 people end up buying what you have to offer…how much money do those 3 people bring into your business? As long as that number is greater than the cost of getting 100

clicks to your offer…then you have a sound business!

After you set up your payment method, you will see a screen similar to the one below in this example.

Note: There is always a “waiting period” before your ad “goes live” so that Facebook can review your ad.

Once your ad “goes live”, you must follow step 5 so that you can maximize your Return on Investment. Additionally, you probably are savvy enough to know this…but DON’T FORGET about your ad…if you have set it up to run daily, it’s up to you to stop running the ad!

So now the fun part begins…watching YOU get TRAFFIC to your site!

Facebook also allows you to “preview” what the ad looks like on your profile. That is a nice feature so you can see what it will look like for your target prospect. In this example, here is what the ad looks like on my profile:

So this is a preview of the ad on

There are so many people moving to Facebook for advertising these days that you'll want to do everything in your power to ensure your ad stands out. You want people to click your ad so you can get more leads and make more sales!

That is part of the reason why doing market research is so important. You need to be able to “speak the language” of the people you are targeting with your ads. Figure out exactly how you can phrase your ad so the right people are attracted to it. Be as specific as you can be! Remember -- it's not about how many clicks you can get in general, it's about how many clicks you can get from those who will be most likely to buy from you.

While you want to be descriptive, you don't want to be long-winded. Make sure you use complete sentences that are well-written. Avoid using words that are unnecessary. You want your ad to be "punchy" and call out to your target audience.

It's not a matter of stating everything you have to state right in the ad -- just enough so that people who are most likely to buy from you become interested and click on the ad.

That's part of why it's so important to include a great call-to-action. It's a very basic part of copywriting that is oh-so-essential! For example, you can tell people to "buy today" or "check out your limited-time only” sales. It's partly subliminal, but telling people exactly what they should do can definitely improve your results.
