It’s not all about you!

I’ve got a news flash for you. If you are a business owner posting on your FB page about your business, your offers, your products etc, you are the reason your reach sucks. Not FB’s algorithm change. As one famous Youtube star says… it’s not all about you.

And if all you do is post about you, you will not like your results. ... → Read more

Does the latest Facebook update scare you? Don’t let it, it’s good news IF…

Have you been seeing those posts lately about the Facebook Algorithm and how it’s out to get you as a small business owner?

It’s all over the newsfeed and everyone is talking about it and making wild claims. I’ve even heard it called the Facebook Apocalypse by some marketers. It’s crazy!

First of all, this kind of fear-mongering helps no one and second, Facebook is NOT out to get you and they aren’t trying to shut down small business. ... → Read more

Is everything going as planned?

My 2018 has not started as I had planned… I thought I would get so much done in the first week of Jan around cleaning my house and marketing my upcoming program that I’d be way ahead of the game, instead, I was taken out with a horrific cold and laryngitis that mutated into a sinus infection and I haven’t gotten much more done that binging the Bates Motel show with my son and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with my daughter. ... → Read more

Do your ideal clients know what you want them to do?

In the last two articles, we’ve talked about the Compelling Question and the Authority Positioning Statement which are two of the pieces of the Ultimate Facebook Ads formula.

Now, we are going to have a deeper look at the Irresistible Call to Action part. Now, this may seem obvious to you, of course, we want them to click the link or image… or like, comment and share… but it might not be obvious to them. And remember, they are sitting in a hypnotic trance mindlessly thumb scrolling through the newsfeed LOOKING for something to jump out at them. Or they are reading things and nodding in agreement, but what good is that? We need to give our audience clear specific directions on what we want them to do, then we take a little bit of the guess work out of the entire equation. ... → Read more

Are you known as the Authority to your audience?

In the last email, we talked about how important the Compelling Question (Did you miss it? READ IT HERE) is to getting your audience to stop scrolling and to read your post on Facebook. Now we’ve asked them the question that gets them saying “HELL YES” to us, now we need to let them know we have the solution for them to this big problem. ... → Read more

Who are you targeting in your Facebook ads?

Now that we know all about pixels and choosing the right objective, the next thing we need to do is target our ads in the right way to get the results that we want. After we choose our objective, Facebook will want us to tell them who to show the ads to, after all with over a billion active users, we can’t just throw spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks here, we have to be specific. So we can target “cold” traffic, which is typically people we don’t know yet, who don’t know us but who we know we can help. OR “Warm” traffic who are usually people who we are retargeting from our email list or from our website traffic with the FB pixel, like we talked about on Monday. With cold traffic we can target based similar interests, other pages or businesses people might follow, location, age, gender, marital status and much more. With cold traffic we are just at the beginning of our relationship with them and we want to start slow and just offer an amazing way to connect and engage and grow our budding relationship. As they get to know us, maybe they’ve clicked on a link to our site (triggering that FB pixel) or claiming your freebie/lead magnet then the relationship has grown a little bit and they aren’t cold anymore, they remember you, you’ve helped them and they become warm and we can deeper our relationship with them by making offers and speaking as we would to a long time customer or friend. The science of targeting is something I go into in The Ultimate Facebook Ads Masterclass this coming Friday and I’d love for you to join me.

    Do you know which FB ad type to choose?

    Yesterday, we talked all about the FB pixel. And the next thing to do is start creating ads, but where do you start? Well, you start at the end. If you’ve run any FB ads, you know there are a lot of different types to choose from. There’s so many and it can be really confusing! Now I break all of these down for you in The Ultimate FB Ads Masterclass this coming Friday and you can REGISTER HERE… but let me help you out a bit right now.
    • If you are a local business who wants to get in touch with more local people, use “Local Awareness” objective.
    • If you want to get more reach on your posts, use the “Reach” objective.
    • If you want to get more people to click on the link in your post to go to your website, use the “Traffic” objective.
    • If you want to grow your email list, use either the “Lead Generation” or the “Conversions” objective.
    You can see there are lots of objectives to choose from and getting that first choice right will mean everything to your success with your ad campaign. So, I want you to get really clear on what it is you want to accomplish with your next ad and recognize you can’t do it all at once. But if you at least start with the RIGHT OBJECTIVE you have a much better chance at success. WANT TO KNOW MORE? REGISTER FOR THE MASTERCLASS HERE.

    And you’ll likely use more than one ad over and over to reach your overall objective, so let’s say your objective is to grow your email list, you wouldn’t want to just choose “Conversions” and not have all the pieces in place to make that work and you’d want to use some “traffic” ads and some “reach” ads and maybe even some “engagement” ads to increase all the traffic and interest in what you are offering, before you even start your “conversion” ad, because all of those ads, will increase the success of your conversion ad. It’s a process. ... → Read more
