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

    FB Pixel? What the what? What is it and how to use it.

    Do you have your FB pixel installed on your website yet? Does that sound like a little bit of Greek to you? Don’y worry, it’s really not that complicated but if you are planning on doing any FB ads this year and you have a website and you want to track your results, then getting your FB pixel installed is not optional. Simply put, it’s a small bit of HTML code, that you create within your ads manager on Facebook, then install on your website. Super easy to do and I walk you through exactly how in The Ultimate Facebook Ads Masterclass this coming Friday, register HERE. What does it do? The little bit of code, sits on your website. It doesn’t change the look or feel of your website at all, it’s invisible. But whenever someone comes onto your website to read a blog post, or find out your store hours, that code is activated and it drops a “cookie” on that person’s computer. A cookie is just a little snippet of code as well. It’s pretty standard on the internet and your computer collects cookies on almost every site you visit. Now, when that person heads back to FB, the code on their computer communicates with FB and if you have an ad set up targeting people who have been on your website, FB will drop that ad in their newsfeed for them to see. And when they see it, they’ll remember you and your business and be much more likely to click through and visit your site, or call you again. Pretty cool right? Let me add this… have you ever googled for a vacation spot you are dreaming of going to? Looked at the hotel or flights but didn’t book? Then headed back to FB and low and behold, there are ads for the very hotel or airline you were just looking at? Well that’s using the FB pixel and it’s called “retargeting”. And you can do it too! WANT TO KNOW MORE? REGISTER FOR THE MASTERCLASS HERE. Imagine how much deeper you can take your relationship with people if you can engage with them on FB after they’ve been to a specific page on your website. Your ad can speak to whatever it was they were looking at. Super cool right? It’s not too hard to set up, I walk you through it all in the Masterclass and take you through the set up of a high converting Facebook ad, all this coming Friday. Join the Masterclass HERE. What is the Masterclass? It’s a 3 hour, highly interactive webinar where you will learn:

    Facebook’s Recent Changes Are A Good Thing For Business

    Recently Facebook made another change to the way our Facebook page posts are viewed, or not in some people’s minds. It seems that Facebook will be giving greater reach to posts that come from your friends than from businesses – organically. Now since Facebook was set up as a social network for people to connect with people this isn’t a bad move right? Since people complain about too many people doing business on Facebook it isn’t bad, right? Here’s the thing… my friends and family’s posts should come first; I agree with that. Then relevant business posts should come next for me. And how does Facebook know what’s relevant to me? Based on my previous engagement is one of the keys, so if I haven’t engaged with any of your posts for awhile, then I likely won’t keep seeing your posts, sounds good to me, too! After all, why would I want my newsfeed cluttered up with posts from people and businesses I haven’t engaged with for awhile, right? Now some are saying your organic reach will go as long as 1%… that’s ok too and here’s why. ... → Read more

    Today, let’s talk about boosting our posts on Facebook. When these first came out they really weren’t something I recommended you use, they had very little targeting and most people were not getting any results for their spend, however, Facebook made it really easy to do a boost posted so there wasn’t much learning curve. What I saw happening were a bunch of people setting up boost posts, getting crappy to no results and then being discouraged at their time and money being wasted. Well that’s not the case anymore; boosted posts certainly have their place, IF you use them with the right outcome in mind. ... → Read more
