Facebook For Authors: How To Create Facebook Ads

By Taylor Coil

If you’ve never tried Facebook Ads before, the process can be a bit daunting. Fear not: we’re seasoned professionals and can help you out. Here’s a step-by-step process to creating your first Facebook Ad to get more likes.

1. Locate the Ads Manager.

Look on the left hand sidebar of your News Feed on Facebook. Under your photo, (in ‘Favorites’) look for ‘Ads Manager.’ Click on it!

Screen+Shot+2013-06-24+at+10.19.11+AM.jpg


 

2. Create an Ad.

Once you’re in the Ads manager, look in the top right of your screen for a green button that says ‘create an ad.’ Click on it!

Screen+Shot+2013-06-24+at+10.19.32+AM.jpg


3. Select Which Facebook Page You’d Like to Advertise.

Once you’re in the ads creator, the first option will be a drop-down menu of all the pages you manage. Select the Facebook page you’d like to advertise from that menu.  Immediately below the page drop-down will be an option to get more likes, promote posts, or see advanced options. Select ‘Get More Page Likes.’

Screen+Shot+2013-06-24+at+10.19.51+AM


4. Decide on Your Ad Copy and Imagery.

This is where you get to be creative. Think about what your target audience will respond to – something meaningful to the reader. Do you write thrillers? Try something like “fans of John Grisham will love this book.”

TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE ADS: Use an image with bright colors to stand out. Customize your ad’s headline AND copy. Add a call to action like ‘Click Like to Learn More!’ at the end of your ad. Test multiple variations of ad copy and imagery to find the formula that works the best.

Screen+Shot+2013-06-24+at+10.20.51+AM


5. Select Your Targeting.

Targeting is perhaps the most important part of advertising: you have to reach the right people. Think creatively about what your readers like and talk about online. If your book is a mystery or thriller, try targeting people who like New York Times Bestselling authors in your genre. If your book is going to be free on Kindle, take a stab at people who own Kindles.  You can target by location, age, and interest.

TIP: When targeting by interest, there will be two different options:  target audiences with #’s in the beginning, and those without. #’s indicates a broad interest that topic: so #John Grisham targets people who have posted or commented about John Grisham AND people who have expressed interest in closely related terms (like “John Grisham’s books”). Audiences without #s in the beginning mean that people in that target like a precise interest with no variants (so John Grisham means that people like the page have expressed interest in John Grisham).

Screen+Shot+2013-06-24+at+10.22.08+AM


6. Set Your Budget and Duration.

Name your campaign something that you’ll be able to reference later. Set your budget – it can be a set amount you’d like to spend per day, or over the entire course of the campaign. You can also pick a start and end date or run your campaign continuously.

RealSmart Baby Food : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: The old saying, “you are what you eat”, is especially true for babies. Give your little ones the very best by making their food from scratch! Let this book be your guide to art of making your own delicious and nutritious baby food.

This book provides as much detailed information as you would ever need to ensure that your baby has a great nutritional foundation to start off his or her life.


Book Description: REALSMART BABY FOOD is a comprehensive guide containing everything you need to know about feeding baby nutritious baby food for one month in 3 one-hour blocks of time. It provides parents/caregivers with over 70 individual whole food recipes as well as detailed information on how and when to introduce various food into their diets. This book also discusses when to choose organic whole foods and what foods to avoid at various stages – including choking hazards. In addition, this unique guide, tells how to manange digestive health and specialty diets – vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. 

When you prepare recipes from this book, like Coconutty Mango Lassi and Plum Gingered Broccoli Quinoa, your baby will love eating whole and healthy food!   

Author’s Inspiration: My college studies lead me into the fields of nutrition and food science, and eventually into working in the food industry, where I saw first hand exactly how processed foods are made. When I became pregnant with my first child, I knew that these would not be the foods for him. I was adamant about giving him fresh, real foods, right from the start. I took so much pleasure in creating his food for him, and eventually my two additional children, watching them happily eat foods like kale and beets, that I myself had not even tried until my adult years.

I began advocating making homemade baby food to my friends with infants, but found that most of them struggled with how to provide a diverse offering of foods, without spending countless hours in the kitchen creating them. I then had the idea to start a homemade baby food service, and I began making the baby food for friends and eventually other local clients. That service lead me to create a system that produced 3- months worth of baby food within 3 hours, all safely made in the clients’ kitchen, conveniently packaged and compactly stored in their freezer, taking up no more space than a small basket.

Realizing how many parents could benefit from my knowledge and efficient baby food making system, I turned it all into the book, RealSmart Baby Food.

Through her homemade baby food service company, Lisa developed an efficient system to create 3 months worth of baby food within 3 hours, all safely made in her clients’ kitchen, conveniently packaged and compactly stored in their freezer, taking up no more space than a small basket.

Anything you ever wanted to know about the process is outlined here.

Author’s Inspiration: After spending thirty years in the retail automotive world of sales and management, I wanted to share what I see as a far better way to buy a car or truck. So many methods used by dealers are largely the blame for the bad experiences people have. But people come into the dealerships completely unprepared, as well. With a little homework on the internet, knowing where to look to research the auto they’re considering buying, along with the secrets of how the dealerships operate, it’s possible to save a lot of money!

 From the Book: No doubt about it, buying a car or truck can be a bad experience. But why is it so hard to buy a car? Because most people have not yet learned to use all the resources available. They are also unaware of how the car business works.

So what’s the answer? A different approach that uses information found online along with an insider’s view of the car business, which is revealed in this book. If you change the process you use to shop and make a buying decision you will know what awaits you when you go in to test drive and buy a car. Your expectations will be based on the knowledge you’ve gained. When you go into a dealership potential stress turns into excitement the way the car buying process can be.

One Minute Super Dad : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: We loved these tips and tricks to help with those pesky chores that need to be done when taking care of your kids. With many of us – not just dads – short on time, these tips come in handy! 

This is a fabulous ‘at your finger-tips’ book and should be on all coffee tables for quick easy access.

Readers who like Chicken Soup for Parents Soul and Rich Dad Poor Dad will enjoy ONE MINUTE SUPER DAD!

Author’s Inspiration: I am a very busy surgeon and at one point, my the, three year old daughter totally disconnected with me. She was also not performing very well in various things and then had a medical issue. I had to find a solution with the limited time I had. I felt like a total faliure to have achieved anything at the cost of my child’s development.

From the Book: Our kids are greatly affected by the way we treat them. Rosenthal experiment:

Several years ago, there was a man who wanted to prove the effects of seeing with our brains. He told a teacher he had a new way of testing children to see if they “had it.” After his testing, he presented his findings, telling the teacher which students had scored the highest for “having it,” for displaying the traits associated with leadership and success, and the ones that scored low.

At the end of the school year, he returned to collect the teacher’s data on the students. He discovered that every student he had targeted as a “star student” got the highest test scores and were leaders in the class. He also noted the students who he said “did not have it” all received mediocre test scores and grades.

The experiment did not test the children at all. It was just for show and the selection process was random. It was the teacher who was being tested. Because the teacher believed the selected students were the leaders, they actually became leaders. The ones branded mediocre became just that.

The Race to the Top: How to Take Over the Social Media Feed : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: THE RACE TO TOP will guide you to harness the power of social media to grow your brand. 

If you are looking to develop a connection and actually reach people – develop a presence in the online world – this is the book for you!


Book Description: Social media feeds are the most powerful marketing mediums at our disposal today. Gaining traction in the feed is imperative for anybody with a business. This book outlines specific and actionable strategies for getting your materials at the top of the feed for your desired audience.

Those who liked Likenomics, Contagious, and Influence will enjoy THE RACE TO THE TOP.   

Author’s Inspiration:  My online career started with a website for personal trainers I build to promote my first book. I quickly learned that it was impossible to grow a business today without a deep understand of the psychology behind why users use social media.

What frustrated me was that all of the training materials I bought seemed to be more interested in teaching me gimmicks and new fancy software than the why behind people using social media. So I became an avid researcher consuming as much material on psychology and behavioral economics that I could find–research papers, books, magazine articles–anything.

Slowly, I started to recognize patterns and built my own systems based on the theories I was developing. After years of testing, I wrote Race to the Top. This is how I was able to go from a no-name personal trainer in a small gym in Toronto to a 2x author, international speaker, and the owner of various successful online businesses both in fitness and social media.

From the Book: Everybody wants to know a guy. When somebody needs help with anything, doesn’t it feel good when you can say that you know the perfect person for that? Social capital rises from being able to help others by knowing an expert. Being able to refer the go-to person becomes a point of pride.

    You need to become the guy. 

    The go-to. 

    The resident expert. 

    This is scaleable. There’s a need for the guy for plumbing, the guy for furniture, the guy for fitness advice, and the guy for insurance. Whatever you do, there’s a need for “a guy” and I suggest you make yourself the guy.

    Gain the feed and this will happen. I’ll show you how.

Jonathan Goodman

  


Looking back, writing was always in my genes. Yet, I’m still surprised at the path my life has taken. I was a late adopter to technology and I never expected to write. But, having an English teacher for a mother paid off and I caught the bug–albeit late.

I wrote my first book about personal training as a way out from 14 hours days training clients in the gym. My first major site was started as a small blog to promote the book; it’s now become the world’s biggest collaborative blogging resource for personal trainers.

I’ve become obsessed with social media and online business building. For those who understand it, the opportunities are endless. More than anything, it’s a perfect platform for testing and developing systems based on deeper psychological theories.

So this is what I do now. I read research papers and books and watch social media trying to recognize patterns and identify things others seem to have glossed over. So far, it’s been working out well for me.

Writing books is my way of helping others who are passionate about growing their business succeed. That’s why I’m so excited to share “Race to the Top” with you.

Favorite Food: Key Lime Pie

 

Favorite Place to Write: Currently, I’m in Maui and I found the perfect coffee shop overlooking the ocean in Kaanapali. Watching whales frolic in the water is the perfect inspiration for writing.

 

Favorite Music: I love the John Butler Trio. Years back I lived in Australia and have been a fan of theirs ever since.

Author’s Inspiration:  My co-author, Jeff Rose, is a certified financial planner who started a project called “The Debt Movement” to help thousands of people combine to pay off $1 million in debt in 3 months. 

I wrote this book to help support the Debt Movement because I wanted to set people up for success. Many other books about getting out of debt tell the reader they must do things a certain way in order to get out of debt, without knowing the reader’s personal situation. If a person isn’t able to follow those steps they feel like they failed.

Debt Heroes gives the reader 21 examples of how people got into and out of massive amounts of debt, then lets the reader choose the one (or ones) that are most applicable to their own personal situation.

From the Book: Are you ready to meet 21 amazing women and men who paid off a combined $1,761,535 in debt? Ranging from a rowdy redhead who paid off half a million dollars in three years to a young Harvard grad who erased $90K of student loans in just 7 months, these Debt Heroes have some impressive stories to share with you.

First I want to share a quick tale:

“Once upon a time, there was an honest, hard-working girl from the city who wanted more than anything else to get out of debt. She tried many times to pay off what she owed but life always seemed to get in the way. Discouraged, she drifted into despair. She dozed off every night wondering if she would ever be debt free — dreaming of a miracle that would rescue her from debtor’s prison.”

Does this debt story sound painfully familiar? Maybe a little bit like your own?

I have good news for you. Not only did this girl finally figure out a way to pay off her debt but so did the 20 other determined men and women in the book. The fact that as a group they paid off over $1.7 million in debt is quite a heroic feat, don’t you think?

Do you wonder how they turned things around and got out of debt? These “Debt Heroes” have agreed to share their stories with you — to tell you how they got into debt and share the secrets that helped them get out.

There is something else you should know; although the cover features a Debt Hero, this book is really about you.

I’ve been a student of personal finance since I was 12 years old. My grandfather hooked me on investing by giving me shares of Wal-Mart stock for my birthday.

I’ve been writing about money on my Money Smart Life blog for 6 years and I’ve met a lot of great people with amazing stories about paying off debt during that time.

I wanted to share their success stories to help motivate other people to get out of debt and to show that there’s no one “right” way to pay off your debt.

Favorite Food: I have three little kids which makes it tough to go out to dinner anywhere so my favorite place to eat is in our family kitchen :)

 

Favorite Place to Write: Once they’re all in bed at night I go down into my basement office and write into the early hours of the morning.

 

Favorite Music: I’m a big fan of Spotify because I enjoy a wide variety of music genres and it lets me listen to them all as I write.

 

Favorite TV show: My kids don’t give me much time to watch television but they can be pretty expensive so they give me lots of inspiration about personal finance topics to cover. When I do have a free moment my wife and I like to catch up on the many episodes of Shark Tank and Survivor we have sitting on our DVR.
