Why Use Facebook Ads?
Even though you classify yourself as a writer, you are also a business. Your books, your website, your blog, and your social media presence are all part of your marketing strategy. It’s time you start thinking like a business. Over 3 million companies regularly use Facebook to market their products and services. Utilizing Facebook advertising enables you to reach an extensive audience in a short period of time and with almost any size budget.
Facebook allows advertisers to use granular targeting methods. For example, its specific geo-targeting makes it possible to target by city, state, region, country, and radius. Advertisers can target by gender, age, interests, likes, occupation, education level, and much more. One of the most beneficial targeting methods on Facebook is interest targeting. Interest targeting lets you pick specific pages and categories where you’re most likely to find new readers. Facebook has more than 1.7 billion monthly active users and an average of 1.1 billion daily active users* which means you have access to over 1 billion potential new readers.
Advertising takes a lot of time and energy. Despite Facebook’s many capabilities, it can be difficult to navigate. Working with us lets you to spend more time doing what you love — write.
“Creating Facebook Ads with Jessie at Write Reach was easy, fun, and super successful. It was wonderful to have a partner in book marketing instead of trying to figure it out on my own. The launch of my new book exceeded my expectations and I was so thrilled and happy with its success that I immediately hired Jessie for a second, terrific campaign!”Kimberley Montpetit
How it Works
To start, I will make sure I have all the necessary information in order to draft a campaign including budget and duration. I’ll ask you a few questions to determine whether or not tracking is possible (sometimes it’s not). Once I have the basics, I will work with you to determine your campaign objective, targeting, and ad format.
If you already have creative you’d like to use, I’ll be happy to use it. However, it must align with Facebook’s guidelines in order to receive approval. I will also make recommendations about the creative provided. If you’re unable or don’t want to provide creative, I will create the ads for you. Once I’ve finished creating the ads I will send you a draft for you to proof, we will make changes as necessary, and then I will optimize the campaign.
