Course Creators swear by Facebook Ads

Have you been on Facebook in the last 24 hours? You probably have and when you think of Facebook, you probably think of updates from friends and family. Pics from holidays and trips. The latest house-move and so on. That’s typical FB content.

But then there are all those ads in your feed. People trying to sell you goods and services. Some big brands selling products and some experts selling you coaching programs. Why?

It’s because FB invests millions making it attractive for business owners to advertise to FB Users.

Many coaches and content-experts tell me that the platform is very powerful and intuitive, and that the ads are cheaper than on other most other social media platforms.

I have spoken to plenty of expert course-creators like James Wedmore and Chris Ducker who get predictable results from advertising their courses and learning using Facebook ads.

Choose the right social media platform

LinkedIn ads are reckoned to be expensive although very business-centric in so far as they help you target a professional audience, specific companies, industries and job titles.

That’s got to be a good thing when you want to be very specific about the kinds of clients for your training and coaching brand.

On the other hand, proponents of Facebook ads rave about the ease-of-use of the Facebook Ads Manager which gives you in-depth access to a global audience of 2.7 billion active users

When I have tried FB ads by myself, I have had mixed results. But when I have hired social media professionals to properly design campaigns, I have gotten more predictable results.

Hire experts so you can focus on your clients

So what options to you have? You can learn how to design and run your own Facebook Ads or you can hire someone who does it full time. That’s your choice.

Personally speaking, I would rather spend my time doing the things such as coaching and training that generate revenue. I leave advertising to expert contractors. That’s my choice.
