Course Description

***Course fully updated April 2015 and will continue to be updated to cover any new Facebook ad regulations or general best practice***

You know you need to grow your business - rapidly. And you've heard that Facebook advertising can be a great way to do that. But you just haven't succeeded in it. Maybe you worry about the costs. Or maybe you just don't consider yourself an expert in advertising. Perhaps you've given Facebook advertising a go already but found it difficult, expensive and unprofitable.

If this is you, then you'll find this course hugely beneficial. Because Facebook advertising is one of the best ways of promoting your business and growing it rapidly. You just need to know how to do it right.

Over the course of 30 simple, short videos, I'll teach you:

  1. How to start advertising on Facebook
  2. Most importantly, I'll explain to you how to advertise profitably.
  3. I'll show you step-by-step how I achieve consistently low cost ads for highly targeted customer leads
  4. And I'll show you how you can achieve the same low cost, targeted leads for your own business (whatever the industry)
  5. I'll also show you how to create a professional, high-performing ad - even if you have zero design or copywriting skills.

So don't waste any more time on expensive ads, poor leads and poor traffic. Make a decision right now to change your business for the better. Start today and discover the secret tricks to achieving growth through one of the best advertising platforms around at the moment - Facebook. And start seeing a steady flow of new, highly targeted leads for your business.

What are the requirements?

  • A web-based business you want to promote
  • An advertising budget (the amount is up to you)
  • A business Facebook page (if you don't have this, I'll show you in the course how to create one, but you need to have it ready for when you advertise on Facebook)
  • Your business must not fall into one of Facebook's prohibited or restricted categories for advertising - please check the up to date facebook advertising policies page if you are unsure

What am I going to get from this course?

  • 30 lectures, and over 2 hours of content
  • Discover why you should ditch your old assumptions about advertising being a business expense, and instead think about it in terms of profit
  • Learn my secret trick to finding undiscovered audiences on Facebook - audiences that you can convert at surprisingly low cost
  • Learn the rules for creating an irresistible ad that Facebook users can't help but click on
  • Discover the traps to avoid when designing your ad - traps that could result in a failed campaign
  • Learn my simple test-based method to creating a profitable, winning ad campaign
  • Grab my personal list of the best tools and resources available to create a professional-looking ad (The best part? Most of these are free)
  • I'll also supply you with the exact spreadsheet I use to create my own low-cost, high profit ad campaigns, with step-by-step instructions on how to apply this to your own business
  • Learn how to take this training and apply it to your own business, with a printable PDF checklist at the end of the course

What is the target audience?

  • You currently have a business that you want to grow, and you know advertising will help you get there
  • You've been put off by advertising because of the potential expense involved (or you've tried a bit of advertising and it just hasn't been successful)
  • You worry you lack the creative flair to create a successful advertising campaign from scratch
  • You've read up a bit on advertising techniques, but found there's lots of conflicting advice, and applying those recommendations isn't always straightforward
  • This course isn't a technical step-by-step course in setting up a Facebook ad campaign. This is a very focused course to help you create the most profitable campaign you can using Facebook
