How To Get Facebook Likes - Facebook Marketing starts out with an appealing Fan Page with social authority. This means that anyone serious about promoting their own, or affiliate products on Facebook needs to get several thousand Likes as quickly as possible.

There are several ways to do this - some good and some bad. For example, some sites sell 100 Likes for $5. First of all, this can be dangerous. There is no way of knowing how the likes were attributed, and you could easily get your Facebook account banned!

Secondly, this course shows you how to gain between 80-100 Facebook Likes each and every day for $1, so why take the risk? Its always best to keep things under your own control and grow a solid business.

Other sites offer FB Like exchanges, which just eat up your time, or simply don't last. You also have to be doubly certain that this kind of site is legitimate and doesn't compromise the hard work you're putting into your online business.

You will watch me create an ad from the ground up - the course includes:

  • Proof of my own ad results
  • How to create the ideal Facebook audience to get 'Likes'
  • Setting your budget, so you don't spend too much!
  • How to choose or create that special 'Click Magnet' image
  • Writing text that matches the ad image and pulls in those Likes

I demonstrate the exact ad creation that consistently brings me 2500 Facebook likes to my Fan Page each month - like clockwork!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for anyone wishing to add hundreds of Likes to their Facebook fan page every week for a small cost.

Introduction To FaceBook ads for 'Likes' Promotion
2 Lectures 05:53

Facebook Marketing beings with the creation of an appealing Fan Page, which show-cases your product or service. There are many services that can help you do this, or build it yourself, using the Tab function and your own creativity.

However, once created, the number of Likes will appear prominently close to the LH corner. In the beginning, this number will be very low, and it has a subtle effect the people who visit your page. If a visitor see a few thousand Likes, then he tends to think 'this page is worthwhile, because many people Like it - I'll stick around and check it out!'

Basically, it's the social attraction factor that your need to give your promotions the best possible chance, so we need likes. At this stage, you are not really concerned where these Likes come from. It can be tempting to by Likes, but this is definitely not advised. Your account could be banned, and anyway, this course will show you how to use ads to get Likes up to 50 times cheaper than buying them from other providers - and they're safe!

Using the guidelines in the next videos, you will regularly get between 80-100 likes each and very day.

Introduction To The Strategy

Before starting an ad creation, let's review what a successful ad looks like, what it can do for our social proof and what you can expect.

The ad shown in the video regularly gathers 800 likes per week and costs around $7, which is exactly what we need. A secondary benefit of gathering this all-important social proof, is that we can use it on any of our web pages.

By pasting a small script onto our web site, we can display the number of Likes from our Facebook Fan Page. For any visitors, it seems as though the Likes displayed are in support of the web page, or the product featured.

Next video we take a look at the audience for our ad.

Social Proof - A Look At A Working Ad
Choosing Your Audience
1 Lecture 06:18

Setting up the audience is crucial to the success of this Like gathering ad.

Remember - we are interested in number, that's all. We don't really care where the Likes come from, as long as they are real users and that they stick!

It's tempting fro English speakers to create an audience of English speaking countries like the US and UK. This would make sense if your ad as trying to sell something, but we just want Likes. These countries tend to be expensive - we don't want to pay up to 25 cents for a Like!

In this Lecture you will learn how to target countries that give you a Like for between 1 and 2 cents.

The Budget
1 Lecture 02:12

The goal of our course is to gather Facebook Likes for between 1 and 2 cents, and we want to keep costs as low as possible.

Our ad budget is going to be set at just $1 per day, which just about anyone can afford. With the correct audience settings, this will generate between 80-100 Likes each day.

The ad will be set to run continuously and we will let Facebook take care of the optimization - they will present the ad to the people most likely to click on that all-important LIKE BUTTON, which appears underneath the ad image.

Ad Creatives - Images and Text
2 Lectures 06:27

Your ad image is super important!

There are many, many images and banners presented to web surfers, so yours has to stand out. How do we do this? Simple graphics with bright colors are good - does your image tell a short story?

Make it unusual, or funny in any way you can. It has to appeal to a variety of people and make them want to click on it. If it's refreshing and new, they will click on it out of appreciation.

The video shows some images that I use in my business and why I use them.

Creatives - The Image

The text is not as important as the image, but also needs some care when choosing the phrase that can also convert surfers into clickers!

Just like the image, the text above it needs to intrigue. Make a bold statement, or ask a provocative question. Remember to work within the Facebook advertising guidelines!

I consider that 80% of the appeal for people to click 'Like' is due to your image, and 20% due to your text. The video shows an example for my own ads, which has the desired effect.

In this exciting bonus section I'm going to address some important changes you can make to your Youtube videos to enhance your chances of performing well in Youtube and Google search.

This first video shows how to add a long panel to the end of your videos with click options, which stops people from moving on the to the next video!

Youtube Videos - Adding A Customized End Panel

The start point for any Youtube video marketing campaign are the keywords. Of course we need to find the right KWs, but how to use them?

Youtube Video Secret Sauce - Finding and Using Keywords!

We often read about video optimization with regard to keywords, title, raw video title and description, but did you know there are other things you can do BEFORE you upload that few people know about?

In this video we delve into the file properties attribute of a raw video file.

Youtube Video Secret Sauce - Optimizing Video BEFORE Uploading!

Just like video, an image file used for a video thumbnail has file properties that we can edit, putting in keywords in the title and also in the comments section.

It's likely that Youtube (Google) can read all information attached to any file uploaded, so it makes sense to add as much information about our subject as possible.
