I am making a series of lessons that are going to help you learn and apply perfect Facebook Ads strategy to your business.

This is going to be a comprehensive series of in-depth articles on Facebook as an Ads platform. It is going to be centered on E-commerce, whether you are a local or a global brand.

Basically, Facebook can help you grow your brand’s awareness, getting sales, and much more.

Why Facebook?
It’s one of the most friendly and engaging platforms having billions of users that interact with it daily.
I know that most of you think that people don’t like to buy when they are on Facebook just to interact with their friends and family.
I will show you how exactly you can make people buy on Facebook.

I am going to reveal all my secrets that will help you grow and help you scale more.

But, I want to mention that I am going to start from a very basic level to advance level. So, if you are already semi-pro in Facebook Ads then you can skip through.

How do Facebook Ads work?

The most important thing that you must know about Ad placement is:

Right Column Ads:
These Ads are on the extreme right as you scroll the newsfeed.

These ads are often very low converting, at least for me anyways.

Newsfeed Ads:

The Ads that you see whenever you scroll through your feed. These are the most converting for me when it comes to Facebook or Instagram.

The most important thing in Facebook Ads is Ad creative. It is the bread and butter of the ad. You should know how to create the best Facebook Ad design.

Make sure that your ad design is good looking enough to grab people’s attention quickly.
