So I'm going to give you a step-by-step tutorial that will help you find your customer using the Facebook ads manager.

I didn't say easy....Facebook ad creation is like trying speaking Greek for the first time......

So far, in my Network Marketing journey nothing has been easy.

Unlike the kids Halloween candy hunt where each house that had their front porch light on was ready to give out candy.

In Network Marketing their are no lights to go by.

You have to share your product or opportunity and then see if you get candy. metaphorically speaking!


Remember this movie phrase?


If you build it, they will come.


Well you don't want to chance it.........right?


So let's break down how you're going to create a Facebook Add that's going to help people find your Facebook page.

Head over to or click the drop down arrow in the upper-right corner of your Facebook Page and choose “Manage Ads” from the drop-down.

Cool part about this is the meter in the top right. 

Facebook shows you how targeted your audience selection is going to be.

So, you'r not just blindly selecting parameters that you think will work.

Definitely helps the novice ad creator like myself.

Time to choose the format.

Your choices are single image, Single Video or Slideshow.

Single image Facebook ad

So far I've only experimented with the single image.

Once you've made that decision it's time to select your image.

Facebook has set up a few guidelines.....

  • Recommended image size: 1,200 x 444 pixels

  • Image ratio: 8:3

  • Text: 90 characters

  • Headline: 25 characters

  • Link description: 30 characters

  • Your image should include minimal text. See how the amount of text in your ad image will impact the reach of your ad .

Use the Text Overlay Tool here. It'll tell you if your image meets the specifications before you submit the ad for approval.

You get to add your ad text now and look at what your ad is going to look like on the desktop and moblie news feed.

Once you're ok with how your add looks now you're ready to place your order.
