If you’re looking for inspiration to get you started with your first Facebook Ad or are stuck in a rut and can’t get your ad to start attracting engagement and clicks, leads or conversions then you might need some help.
Every day I see marketers spending tons of cash with Facebook Ads and most of them have absolutely no idea what they are actually doing. Funnily enough it seems to be all the same type of ads:
- A make money video (travel & be free like me)
- A drop shipping product from Aliexpress
- A software package such as Clickfunnels.
So if you are losing money with Facebook ads and can’t actually make a dime online what are you options?
- Give up
- Apply what’s working for others.
And if you decide to go with option 2 then you can checkout my advice below.
How To Find Winning Facebook Ads
Recently I came across a web based platform called Big Big Ads which offers a service similar to Adfox and Adespresso where they crawl Facebook for the latest ads and then list them in a database.
They offer a free solution where you can view 100 ads in hundreds of categories with the premium version costing $99 a month. Bit steep for most of you but definitely worth the money.
But cutting to the chase, they now offer a Google Chrome extension which is free to install. This plugin allows you to view only Facebook ads in your news feed.
If you were spending hours on Facebook you could keep scrolling forever and every 5-10 posts you’d see an ad related to you. Now this plugin removes all the stuff you’d normally want to see and just display endless ads.
You can quickly see what ads other marketers are running. Adding to this you can look at the number of likes, total shares, comments and the number of ads the page has run before.
Here’s an example of a successful ad, given the number of engagements and the fact they are still promoting the post they are probably making thousands with this free+shipping offer. Whether they are actually making money is anyones guess.
And here’s an example of someone who clearly has no idea what they are doing. This is their first ad and it definitely shows. You can then click on ‘AD Total’ and it will reveal further information about the specific ad.
Once you’ve found a good ad you can simply apply the same technique to your own ad. But remember while there’s nothing wrong with inspiration, blatantly copying someone else’s ad, product and sales page will definitely set you up to fail.
Good luck and go find those winning Facebook ads in seconds.
