As discussed a few weeks ago, I’ve realized that while my content is intended for advanced Facebook advertisers, many of those who read these pages or receive my emails are actually beginner or intermediate advertisers. I wanted to create something for those groups without impacting my blog content.
I first created an experiment that allowed readers to segment themselves…
While effective, I’ve found that people aren’t always honest with themselves about how advanced they are. They’re likely to indicate they are advanced when they are truly intermediate, or intermediate when they are truly beginners.
I then created a 30-question Facebook ads quiz that would prove just where someone falls regarding their experience…
Not surprisingly, the quiz results show that far more people are intermediate and beginner than advanced.
Based on a person’s performance on the quiz, I’d funnel them to the appropriate webinar. I intentionally made it a chore to get access to each webinar registration page.
But now, for the first time, I am publicly revealing each free webinar registration pages. Each of these webinars have been conducted once so far. Eventually, I plan for them to all occur live every month.
Beginner Facebook Advertiser Webinar
I structured this webinar with the understanding that my This is the group of people who can potentially see your ads. You help influence this by adjusting age, gender, location, detailed targeting (interests and behaviors), custom audiences, and more. More had minimal experience with Facebook ads. They may have boosted posts, but they have done little else.
This nearly 90-minute webinar covers the following topics…
1. Answers to Quiz Questions 1-10
The most common question I received from people taking my 30-question quiz was, “What are the answers??” So I decided to dive into the answers of 10 questions during each of the webinars.
I not only provide the answers to these questions, but I dig deeper and provide examples to clarify any misconceptions.
2. Brief: The Facebook News Feed
We’re dealing with beginners in this webinar, so it’s important we start from the beginning. Before we get started, you need to understand how the news feed works and your role within it.
The purpose of the news feed is to surface content that users will find most interesting. It is not to screw marketers and force them to pay. It’s just that our content is far too often less interesting.
During this portion of the webinar, I guide you through a basic understanding of how the news feed works and some expectations. You can’t look at Facebook and the algorithm as your opponent or you will never find success.
3. Boost vs. Ad Create Tool vs. Power Editor
The vast majority of advertisers are only considered advertisers because they’ve clicked the boost button. They’ve yet to venture into the wonderful world of creating an ad from the ground up.
In this section, I break down the differences between the boost button, ad create tool and Power Editor. I help you understand what you can and can’t do with them as well as why you might use each one.
4. Targeting 101
Targeting is the number one reason why an ad succeeds or fails. It’s also where beginner advertisers struggle most.
I break down my targeting priority list and guide you briefly through how to use each option.
I get plenty of questions on these webinars, and I provide between 20 and 30 minutes to answer questions you may have.
Intermediate Facebook Advertiser Webinar
Intermediate advertisers have moved beyond the boost button. They have probably even experimented with Power Editor, though that isn’t always the case.
The main thing is that they have significant experience with ads without feeling confident with the most advanced topics. Our goal is to help guide this group to the advanced level.
This is another 90-minute session, covering the following topics…
1. Answers to Quiz Questions 11-20
Once again, the first 10-15 minutes covered answers to 10 questions from the Facebook ads quiz.
2. Facebook Lead Ads
Lead ads are a great way to collect leads inexpensively without sending users to your website. However, it’s not a beginner strategy, and it’s something that even the intermediate advertiser struggles with.
During this section, I explain what lead ads are and how best to use them before going into the step-by-step details of setting them up yourself.
3. The The Facebook pixel helps advertisers track events that occur on their website and reach people who performed those events with ads. More
If you want to do any of the good stuff — remarketing, optimizing or tracking — you need to have the new Facebook pixel on your website. But this is likely the most intimidating topic for the intermediate advertiser.
I go into the details of why you need the pixel and how to set it up. I also discuss using it for A website custom audience matches people who visit your website with people on Facebook. You can then create ads to show to that audience. More, Dynamic Ads, Custom conversions let you create rules for events or URLs so that you can better track and optimize for specific actions with Facebook ads. More and Standard Events.
And of course there’s a Q&A session at the end.
Advanced Facebook Advertiser Webinar
Maybe you already use Power Editor exclusively, if not a third party tool, to manage your Facebook ads. Maybe you’re spending thousands of dollars per month and have extensive experience with remarketing, Dynamic Ads, Lead Ads, evergreen The campaign is the foundation of your Facebook ad. This is where you'll set an advertising objective, which defines what you want your ad to achieve. More and more. In that case, you’re an advanced advertiser.
This is yet another 90-minute session where the following topics are covered…
1. Answers to Quiz Questions 21-30
I first step through the final 10 questions from my quiz, explaining the answers for each.
2. Website Custom Audience Update
You may be aware of this recent update. It’s a big one, and I’m excited about it!
I go into detail regarding how advertisers can (or will be able to, depending on if you have it yet) create audiences based on Calculated as (Impressions/Reach), Frequency is a Facebook ads metric that measures the average number of times users have seen your ad. More and quality of actions on your website. I also go through how I’m using this and provide some early results.
3. Dynamic Ads
This webinar is actually the first time I discuss the steps for creating Dynamic Ads. If this is something you’ve considered doing, check out this webinar.
There were more questions from this webinar than the others, given the advanced nature. Lots of great discussion came from it.
4-Week Training Programs
I have also created 4-week training programs for beginner and intermediate advertisers. For now, I am keeping these groups small. But if you’re interested in signing up for either one, feel free to contact me for details.
I am not creating a 4-week training program for advanced advertisers since that’s what the Power Hitters Club is for.
