Facebook Ad Overview
You all know many spend ALL DAY on social media with many attached to Facebook most waking hours.

The key is focused ad buys. Never “Boost” a post. Learn how to direct each campaign to a specific audience, such as your zip code, school district etc. You can also take a large list of emails ( clients, or from trade show etc) and insert into the FB ad section. Now FB will match to its user base and direct ad content to that list and if you want to those that are “look a like” to the list.
