Facebook Advertising Guide
Like I said Facebook advertising is as easy as posting on Facebook . If you have a post that needs a little attention give it a shot. First off you should pick a compelling image. This will appear in posts and sidebars and will get people’s attention so make it something that gets attention. Humor is a good route. Making someone laugh is a good tip for writing as well as for advertising.
There are a couple things different when you create an ad for Facebook. Firstly, you have to pay. Like I said advertising on Facebook can be quite affordable. I set my ad to run for about a day. It cost me five dollars. You can add more if you like or even up it incrementally depending on what you would like to promote.
With Facebook ads, you also have the option to choose which areas you would like your ads displayed in and an age range demographic. It helps to know your demographic. This will help hugely when marketing. Chances are you already have a good idea who you’re writing for. Stick with that unless you are trying to reach a new demographic.

Why Advertise on Facebook?
With one ad for 5 dollars I was able to reach 1115 people. In a short period of time I was able to engage 18 new visitors. It’s as good for traffic as it is for promoting a product or service. Facebook ads are particularly good for seasonal or timely advertising.
Once you find an ad that works hold onto it. Finding something that strikes a vein with your visitors is something you should remember. When you find something that works try some variations on a theme. Keep them in your back pocket for the next time you want to advertise a post or product.
Advertising on Facebook is easy, cheap and highly effective. If you’re not sure…come on its 5 dollars. You’ll see the return immediately reflected in your Facebook ad stats. Experiment with a few different posts and see how well it works for you. Watch your Google Analytics for Facebook referrers. Your new stats might just change your mind about advertising with Facebook.
