That's a question I was musing over recently as I wanted to get more traffic to my website so people could browse my Online Courses www.freewriterscentre.org/online-courses.html and see what Live Events www.freewriterscentre.org/live-courses--events.html were coming up.
I had some trepidation about committing to the Facebook advert www.facebook.com/freewriterscentre/ as it can always be 'a moment' when you hand your bank or Paypal details over – however – Facebook let you stay in control of the spend. You select how much you want the advert to cost per day and for how many days and go for it! I selected £2 per day for 14 days – so no big financial commitment there – but after 7 days my advert has already been seen by over 13000 people.
In terms of who I selected for the audience; for this one I went with Facebook's algorithm choices of 18 – 65 yrs within the UK wide. However on other adverts I will select differently as I have an international audience and due to my many years living in Egypt I still have a strong trusted presence and still have work and clients coming in from there. I also wish to expand my online presence to a global one as the Online Courses can be taken anywhere at anytime.
So, if you want to boost a Facebook Ad or you're thinking of creating content to advertise on Facebook or make any marketing campaign I can verify that the Facebook Business Centre is A-OK and DOES get results.
Go for it!
Next time I'm going to try out making a Youtube www.youtube.com/channel/UCczh7mMCua_FJZP9J_mWZ_Q 'reactions' video – in the first case it will be my reaction to Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time In Hollywood which I saw in Bristol a few days ago and LOVED his re-imagining of the Sharon Tate case.
