How To Create Instagram Ads Through Facebook Power Editor (Full Walkthrough)

0:00
everyone in today's video I'm going to be doing an updated video on during
0:05
Instagram ads through Facebook's ad platform I apologize that this video is
0:19
a little bit late i'm suppose to have it up a few days ago I've been having some
0:23
technical difficulties with my audio equipment but everything seems to be
0:27
fixed now so we're gonna get started now and this video what I'm doing is sort of
0:33
an updated video to my first one on doing Instagram ads through facebook
0:37
para editar you can do your Instagram add through the ad manager now which
0:42
might be easier for some people I'm gonna stick with power editor in this
0:45
because power editor has more options and I just normally use it all the time
0:49
anyways but you can also do the ad manager version of it and it will just
0:54
do a walk-through for you so I'm just going to be redoing it as part of his
0:58
video 2 I'm also going to be covering off any of the questions that people may
1:03
have had different comments and feedback I got on the YouTube channel that we
1:07
have here and I'm really gonna start from actually creating the picture for
1:12
my ad and then do during the actual ad set up inside power edit this is a
1:17
common question I was popping up with sort of ideas on creating a picture so
1:21
I'm just going to kind of show you something easy is can now you start
1:26
inside can be here now what you're gonna do is Yorkshire gonna use custom
1:30
dimensions so it can vote CA nba.com and then once you're logged in with an
1:36
account you use custom dimensions and the Instagram add size as 1080 by 10 E
1:42
and it's essentially just a perfect square so you just use the use custom
1:47
dimensions putting 1080 by 1080 and click design and then it's going to give
1:52
you a nice blank canvas that you can start working with now and show you this
1:56
is an example to kind of get you started one thing I have found is that the
2:00
images inside of Instagram work better if you do try to apply a bit of a filter
2:04
to them because that's kind of the style of Instagram
2:07
so I'm just going to show you that you can do this since I can't here's an
2:10
image I have here now you're gonna need to stretch it so it fits the canvas so
2:15
you can stretch it and kind of move at the way that you liked it and then once
2:19
I have a hear a click on the picture and click on filter and then I can go ahead
2:23
and apply a filter that I want to this picture and sometimes applying this
2:27
filter makes a difference I find that the ad performs little bit better so
2:31
they all these filters I can go into advanced options as well and adjust them
2:36
even more so I could add some more contrast I could force operation or
2:40
lower saturation sort of play with the Angela bet so that's something that I do
2:45
there and then it just kind of applies a filter to the image so it looks a little
2:48
bit more like a common Instagram image that you can see on the platform this is
2:53
really easy to do inside a campus I recommend that you look i cant now this
2:58
is what my final picture look like that I was doing so I'm essentially copy what
3:03
I did for this one into here so the next thing that I did I grabbed a banner so
3:08
that you can do in camp it's pretty easy just search ban her and then from here
3:12
you can find the different banners that you can use and I think it was this one
3:16
that I stuck on here so you can drag it around like this I can make it a little
3:20
bit wider I can make a little bit thicker something like this and I'll
3:24
just drag it to where I want to put it I usually delete the texts that I can give
3:29
you inside these things because I find that I want a text to reach further than
3:34
what they allow so I just delete it and then I click on text over here and then
3:40
I just had my own text and then in here where did I put the tax is ultimate swap
3:45
file some alternate cities putting ultimate swap file for Facebook Ads
3:52
success now I can increase the font size to make it a little bit bigger and I can
3:56
just come to drag it where I wanted here and even in here I might actually just
4:01
increases banner a little bit more
4:07
and here's my tax so that when the text I am going to make it white just so it
4:12
stands out and then here's my little text on my banner and I think I just put
4:17
your ultimate football for Facebook ads so maybe I'll just put ultimate spot for
4:21
Facebook ads just so that I can make the text a little bit bigger so it stands
4:26
out a little bit more and they're ago so now the next thing I usually do is i i
4:32
didnt arrow because on the ad itself is going to be like a button down here that
4:36
says i download or sign-up depending on what I choose so then what I'm gonna do
4:41
in Psych and I'm just gonna search for arrow and I just scroll through the
4:46
arrows until you find one that I like and I like this one here so this is the
4:50
one that I was using before so I could make it a little bit bigger and I can
4:56
change the color so I could make it this brighter pink color and then I'm just
5:01
going to put down because that's where the buttons gonna be located now the
5:05
buttons gonna cry center itself right here you'll see when we do the ads I'm
5:09
just going to kind of place the arrow around this location right here kind of
5:13
in the corner center and then I usually sometimes will do that copy of this I
5:19
make the new top one the lighter pink and then I'll just use my arrow arrow
5:24
keys on the keyboard to move the surround has when I'm gonna do from here
5:28
is a new kind of making it look a little bit 3d like the banner looks a little
5:33
bit 3d something to make this one look a little bit 3d as well and then that's my
5:38
arrow there so you can see I kinda did that over here this way I could bring it
5:42
down instead so you play with us a little bit until you find the way that
5:46
the design that you like and so they're my picture then I'm going to be using
5:49
for the ad so then what you do once you have your picture you click on Download
5:54
I'm gonna click on Options can I'm gonna be a picture number two and then I
5:58
always do a high-quality PNG file the PNG file is better quality it's more
6:05
crisp so I recommend you use PNG instead of jpg jpg sorry so it's a pain file and
6:12
serve a jpg file and then it's just going to download it for you and I used
6:17
a stock photo for the background
6:18
was about $1 so cameras really cool about that most the stock stuff that you
6:23
can find is about a dollar and then otherwise these other aspects are free
6:27
and here so you can see there's a free free free some things cost $1 $1 so it's
6:32
fairly affordable to create your images for your ads right so now we're gonna go
6:37
into power editor so I mean my ad manager in here and then I'm gonna click
6:42
on power editor I want to open up our editor creates an hour inside up our
6:47
editor so what I'm gonna do it to be in this video I linked to my original
6:51
Instagram and since I power editor video right here I'm gonna put a link to my
6:55
power editor video it's an ultimate predator videos just let you understand
6:59
how our editor functions so no matter what changes they put in place you
7:04
understand where everything is located the main thing is there's three levels
7:08
of campaigns and SATs and adds your total
7:11
consists of a campaign ad set an ad and that's the steps are gonna go through
7:16
its three steps even if you're using ad manager it's still gonna walk you
7:21
through them with a wizard using three steps so to start here and then click on
7:25
Create campaign and then from here I'm just gonna name it ok so I have my name
7:30
in here now from here in my old video when you click your objective in here a
7:35
little blue thing would pop up saying new Instagram at that's gone now which
7:39
is why I'm doing this video you still have access to Instagram as they just
7:43
aren't advertising it in this drop down so I'm gonna do clicks to website
7:48
however you might find that website conversions works better if you get
7:51
people to sign up for stuff I find links to website works better for my audiences
7:57
but usually the website conversions will be a better one if you're getting sign
8:00
ups and then from here that's when campaign name then I'm gonna say choose
8:04
an accent and I'm just gonna name it and they usually pick a name that all know
8:08
what to look up later and I don't have a nagging for its almost gonna create an
8:12
ad CCM creating a campaign ads
8:16
add those are the three steps in creating an ad Inside Facebook now going
8:20
to click on Create and it's going to automatically load me into the campaign
8:24
in here I don't need to set anything in here because I've already done so click
8:29
on that and then from here it should automatically open it if any reason this
8:34
doesn't automatically open I'll show you gonna close it here and just hit the
8:39
arrow so what you would do is find your ads that name and here you highlight it
8:44
and then you can click the edit button from here and then that will bring up
8:48
the screen for you if at all you ever missing the screen popped up for me here
8:53
if you're missing it just do that fine the name and click on it click and then
8:58
you get the screen now from here I would set my budget I usually start at $5
9:02
budgets a day and then I raise it up and five or $10 increments depending on how
9:08
well the ad is doing i will raise it up after two or three days I wait two or
9:12
three days to see how the ads doing now and here I'll put a couple locations and
9:17
put all of North America Canada and the United States and you can see it's a
9:23
huge number I usually try to go under one million if I'm doing a large
9:27
geographic region like this so in here now
9:31
Instagram usually is used by younger folks so I am actually going to go in
9:35
here and I'm gonna say from 18 to maybe thirty actually might even do it is 25
9:42
so do 18 to 25 in here and now I will put the languages English cuz when I'm
9:48
trying to do here and try and narrow this potential reach number down under a
9:52
million and since the stuff I offers in english to english there and then it
9:57
won't be hitting up anyone that maybe speaks another language and won't be
10:00
able to use my stuff anyways and then in here I might do something right have
10:05
small business
10:06
and you can actually search for small business owners as a behavior and
10:12
Facebook understands who those are small business interests and entrepreneurship
10:17
interests and then the other thing that you may also want to try doing is adding
10:22
a page so someone whose audience might be similar to your audience like I could
10:28
as something like Pat Flynn so they're smart passive income with Pat Flynn's so
10:34
I could add his page as a point that I want to reach so I could put that in the
10:39
general area or I could say narrow audience by saying they have too much of
10:45
this and also be one of these people so I might put pat flynn as an example of
10:51
small business owners entrepreneurship small business they must also match Pat
10:56
Flynn's people now I had a hundred thousand and that's a pretty reasonable
10:59
number I could add some other people in here as an example to Justin pages
11:05
interest pages I could add people but then I could also I magazines let's say
11:10
so I searched for Entrepreneur Magazine
11:14
Entrepreneur Magazine right here as an interest so I could put that in there
11:18
and then I have it up two hundred and thirty thousand so I would probably try
11:22
to get this higher I'm just gonna do this as an example for you guys just
11:27
gonna get you started
11:28
and this is sort of some ideas and people have asked about targeting so I'm
11:31
just showing you an example of some things I play with i would do more
11:35
research with this though and don't copy what im doing that numbers actually
11:39
pretty low for North America campaign so I would actually play with the targeting
11:44
in here try to get there said maybe five hundred thousand or so so that I can
11:48
spend a little bit of money you reach a lot of people for now we're just gonna
11:52
move on to showing you this is an example now and after doing you can
11:56
choose to save the audience if you want now is an expert in a show you this is
12:00
the key area here this is where the Instagram as have moved to see you see
12:05
there's something called placement right here and will automatically go on
12:08
automatic I don't recommend that you do that instead choose your place and then
12:13
in here see of mobile news feed audience network desktop desktop Instagram so
12:17
because this is instrum specific
12:19
I'm gonna turn off everything except for Instagram now when I do that you can see
12:25
now the estimated reach is 62,000 people now so I went from a hundred and 30,000
12:31
to 60,000 now sometimes if you're trying to reach people are also our interests
12:36
of these pages it might not apply anymore because they don't have an
12:41
Instagram account like smart passive income of Pat Flynn that's the specific
12:45
name of a Facebook page so that doesn't even really apply anymore so much so you
12:50
might also need to rework some of this stuff in here to get the number of
12:54
higher if you're trying to reach a large audience like that for now I'm just
12:58
gonna carry on with this just to give you an example so I have Instagram
13:01
chosen here if you're doing it and that doesn't allow Instagram and just won't
13:05
show up in this profile here one of the ones in this is a big question I get
13:09
asked a lot as how do you run an ad to just promote your Instagram page that is
13:15
currently not available you have to run an ad that points to a link
13:18
outside of a social media platform but I do believe you are allowed to run ads to
13:23
you too and that's probably the only one so right now you can't just do a like
13:28
page and like you can do in Facebook you can't do that for your Instagram account
13:32
unfortunately but just keep checking back it seems to be requested by a lot
13:37
of the people that watch my videos so I would imagine Facebook's probably
13:41
noticing that and they're gonna get some point it's just not available right now
13:45
so that's one of the big questions that I get asked a lot so for now just go
13:48
with something where you're clicking a link
13:51
outside of Instagram and Facebook page and camping in shrimp age ok so then
13:56
from here now I do you leave the automatic stuff in here is if I get if I
14:01
chose the and links to web site it's gonna show it to people who are more
14:05
likely to click to my website if I chose the ad conversions its gonna show it to
14:09
people who are more likely actually two converts actually fill out a form and
14:13
join something so Facebook smart about that I let them take care of that I do
14:18
everything and automatically filled in here because I find it works best if I
14:22
go in and try to edit the stuff because I don't really know the audience and
14:26
Facebook knows that better than I do so that's why I just like when you leave
14:29
this the only one you changed
14:32
addict is this placements cuz that's really important I don't like that
14:35
they've done automatic care because like some of these just don't work for some
14:39
ads if you want to do just Instagram and I do recommend that you do your
14:42
Instagram adds separate from your facebook ads because you get different
14:46
responses and you got your $1 spent in different ways I recommend that you keep
14:50
it separate from Instagram alright so now there were done in here we're going
14:54
to click on ads now we're going to design the ad I can walk you through all
14:59
aspects of this because a few people been asking on YouTube page here so now
15:04
the next one is choose a page so im just gonna say like my page from the drop
15:09
down and here's my page in here now it's going to automatically pull my Instagram
15:14
account so let me briefly go over to my page and show you are a set that up
15:18
ok so here's my page so you just go to Settings and then when you're inside the
15:22
General Settings in here you see there is a Instagram ads right here see you
15:27
click on that and then it will ask you to enjoy your Instagram account YouTube
15:31
putting your username and your password and then you're good to go
15:34
that's all you have to do for that and when stocks added then you will see it
15:39
shows up right here there's my Instagram user name and it's available free right
15:42
there so now I'm gonna just do an ad with an image so i'm gona click on
15:46
select image and I'm gonna upload this upload and manage and I can just drag
15:52
and drop this picture over here and it's gonna upload it for me
15:56
ok now if it stays on this upload image screen right here just click on image
16:00
library and just double check it sometimes it does but it doesn't
16:04
automatically flippy to the screen so that's just a little buggy thing and
16:09
I'll just give me a little tip on so now this is where you can preview my
16:12
Instagram Adam what it's going to look like the important thing to keep in mind
16:16
when you're doing the Instagram as this is another big question I get asked a
16:20
lot on the YouTube page you won't be able to see your post on Instagram it's
16:24
technically what's called a dark post which means it's not posted your page
16:29
and you're not gonna be able to view it as an ad out there it's a dark posted a
16:33
hidden post so the only way you can actually see this post is if someone
16:37
responds to his home in like say your comments on it and will show up in your
16:41
Instagram app under
16:42
the notifications but it's not going to display like this this button right here
16:47
you won't see in your apt you only see it if you actually see the ad in the
16:51
Instagram newsfeed oK so it's an important thing to keep in mind then
16:55
there's no way to do this right now other than just reposting the same image
17:00
in the same update your page
17:01
some people ask me about it on the YouTube comments here and just keep in
17:06
mind if you want this also displaying your page after your ad go then change
17:10
the Grand page and actually do this as a post as well if you want this to be
17:13
there later but you won't have this blue button on your page but it will show up
17:17
in your ad so that's just a little bit of misunderstanding that happens the
17:21
ants now you can see you I have my arrow and this is actually pointed pretty dead
17:25
center right here
17:26
ok so that has been covered off the other thing to you is Facebook doesn't
17:31
want you to have taxes more than 20% of the image and I knew she had a check
17:35
then a second now Facebook is talking about taking that rule away and allowing
17:39
you to do as I have more than 20% taxed but if your eyes more than 20% tax
17:44
they're gonna show it less than if an ad has 20% or less so it essentially put
17:50
you into third place position if your ad has no tax on the picture you'll be in
17:55
first place position you show your Ad first if it has some tax but it's under
17:59
20 percent though so your ad second and if it has more than 20 percent tax you
18:04
mean third placement for your ad so I say either no tax or keep it under the
18:09
20% this is under train presented compelled to very small but when I show
18:13
you this cool this is the great tool right here and then what you're going to
18:18
do is your gonna choose a file you can upload your image I'll put a link to
18:21
this toy underneath his video uploading my image know when it's going to do its
18:26
gonna plague ridden over top of the image and then I click on where the tax
18:30
is located and its gonna tell me how much text IHOP survey click here now
18:35
says I've 12% tax agency I could actually go the whole strip but I'm fine
18:40
with the way I am I have 12 percent tax on this image will be good for my
18:44
advertisement oK so that's just the way to check out that link underneath the
18:49
next thing is you want to put a link to where you're promoting so like I said it
18:52
has to be an external link
18:54
so I'm just gonna grab at now and through it and so here's the link above
18:58
to promote some just copying the length from the top
19:01
I'm going to go back into power editor here and then I'm just gonna put the
19:05
link to where I'm gonna send people to now the next thing is the display URL
19:10
which I don't think even displays on Instagram but when I might do something
19:14
like I might say something like join now and has some arrows pointing over but I
19:19
don't think that even really displays an Instagram at I don't believe so but it
19:23
will display in facebook mobile if you're working on that next time I tax
19:27
now I usually add emoticons now wondering to me out and you can also add
19:33
line breaks to what I recommend the EGU is you can even play inside word and
19:38
then just copy and paste the information over to here in power editor you more
19:42
texting here you can put line breaks things like that sometimes in Instagram
19:46
it doesn't read the line breaks over here but if you're working on a facebook
19:49
mobile I it will read it
19:50
the line breaks in the ad said he's gonna grab my text ok so I'm just basing
19:55
my texts and and you can see added two more cons and in the display here and
20:02
has previously only preview I'll be able to see it shows it right here
20:07
the other thing I've done is they've also added the hashtags I do recommend
20:10
the UN hashtags for Instagram ads which is another reason I recommend you keep
20:14
your Instagram at separate from your Facebook God has the hash tanks will
20:19
look funny on Facebook you can add a couple on Facebook but they're more
20:22
popular Instagram and I do find that this does help my ad whenever I don't
20:27
have hashtags
20:28
it doesn't do as well as when I put them in so definitely experiment with it now
20:32
the next thing is I'll probably change the button here so I'm gonna change it
20:37
to something like sign up and you can see now changing here now looks a little
20:41
bit small in the arrow is not centered and I don't really like that so that's
20:45
something where I might actually change it in here I might say something like
20:50
down wanna see a big tub i download that centers that better I might even go back
20:55
and edit that picture that was really important to me okay so I just something
20:58
to keep in mind as well and have the DOWNLOAD button here I have conversion
21:03
pixels on if you wanna know
21:05
Facebook pixels you can go over to my other videos on our YouTube channel and
21:10
then just look at the pics or videos from there or if you're on Facebook go
21:14
to my facebook page I have pics or videos on my Facebook page as well same
21:18
videos on YouTube so now my dad is done so seeing that was nice and easy it's
21:22
all done and just sending a dancer Emily to now start the add internet on your
21:28
gonna click on this button for review changes and then from here and click
21:32
Continue and then it's gonna update it for me if there was any issues with me
21:38
and it would warn me before I had continued it would have liked a little
21:41
red exclamation mark and say warning something's wrong and it would tell you
21:45
what's wrong now it's done so you click on done if I go back and add manager of
21:50
a click on Manage as again now it will refresh and it will show me this new ad
21:56
that I decided right here
21:58
Instagram dominate and is active right now but I have seen ads where it's
22:03
pending and it is often that this is not the question comes up on their YouTube
22:07
channel it's often that you're actually pending for like 24 hours it's pretty
22:12
normal it just happens sometimes if they think that party a picture of your ad
22:17
copy and he's a double check by human or if you're brand new to add your stuff
22:21
might be pending for a while because you're sort of building up a rapport
22:25
with running ads inside a facebook so that's another thing so that's it my
22:29
facebook facebook I is right here now I can monitor my ad inside ID manager in
22:35
here I'm not be able to click on this since reimpose properly I usually gives
22:40
you an air let's take a look and see what it says but I will sometimes I was
22:44
actually working now so they might have actually added this fix this
22:48
some of you guys have asked how can I can preview the post from ad manager so
22:52
it looks like they just fix this so try to let me know if it's not working for
22:56
you just out of curiosity a curious if it's working or not but you can see the
23:01
post but you're not going to see them here cuz I'm seeing it as a post right
23:05
now but it looks different ones in the news feed there's going to be that
23:08
button down here
23:10
ok just so you have a little bit of understanding now you can monitor your
23:13
ad in here and add manager now if you like to be mobile all the time you don't
23:17
want to
23:18
ad manager on your desktop then I recommend you download the Facebook
23:22
advertiser up and that's available for iPhone and Android and I'll just bring
23:27
up the pages you can see them
23:29
ok so this is the app looks like for iPhone here and this is what it looks
23:33
like for Android and you can just monitor your ads inside the Apple you're
23:37
on-the-go you can add more budget you can turn campaigns on an ox you can even
23:41
just see how they're performing so that's another way to sort of check your
23:44
ads like to check them this way cuz it's more of a quick view and I want to log
23:48
into my desk tops of your mobile user maybe because using sure I'ma lot then
23:53
this is a good way for you to check and manager at on the go for your mobile
23:57
device
23:57
ok so that is how you run an ad for Instagram using Facebook's power editor
24:03
and most of the big questions where again just to repeat and we'll just
24:09
review it again
24:09
number one is you cannot run an ad to just promote your Instagram page right
24:14
now you have to run an ad for a link
24:16
outside of Instagram and Facebook that's number one number two you can preview
24:21
your posts and stuff but it's not gonna look that way when it's actually running
24:25
the ad and it won't save it to your profile cuz the dark posts if you want
24:29
this picture saved your profile
24:30
posted your profile separately but you won't have that button that's on its ok
24:35
that's number to use of the two big questions and number three
24:38
a lot of the questions are really just dream targeting how to do a picture how
24:43
to monitor your ad things like that and I just showed you that you can use the
24:47
app to monitor you can set up your picture inside can buy if you use power
24:51
and ordered you some more options with actually the copy text underneath to you
24:55
can add some emoticons in your tax just something a little bit different right
24:58
and then the third one is like I was saying I usually start at $5 a day then
25:04
after a few days I see how the ads doing the string well as the budget in five or
25:09
$10 increments per day and if it's not doing well go back all tweaked the photo
25:13
I'll tweak the copy things like that and then I'll raise the budget depending on
25:17
how performs I always let things run for a bit and they see how they're going and
25:21
then a tweak it as needed so hopefully that sort of refreshes what we were
25:26
talking about in the first video but let me know her forgotten anything
25:30
and again you know placements areas where Instagram's move to just make sure
25:35
you double check that ok so hopefully this covers everything
25:39
leave a comment like below if you have any other questions about it and a link
25:43
all the other videos towards each other so hopefully I'm able to capture my
25:47
summer frame back to other videos and you'll be good to go right so have a
25:51
great day everyone I hope you enjoy the rest of your week

How To Set Up (and KILL it) With Instagram Ads

0:00
in this article I'm gonna show you how to kill it with Instagram ads
0:19
business owners santa came early this year because Instagram ads are here I've
0:26
been messing with him for a week and I've been getting stellar results
0:29
traffic to my blog upton's e-commerce purchases but traffics cheap because not
0:35
everyone is in on the game and it's time for you to learn so you can get in on
0:38
the ground floor and get while the gettin is good for the very first thing
0:42
you have in place before you can even start running Instagram ads is to link
0:46
your Instagram account with your Facebook business page so from your page
0:50
go to settings and in the left margin you're gonna see a little icon says
0:55
Instagram ads click on that and then select Add Account simply enter your
1:00
username and password and hit confirm then you should see your username and
1:06
your avatar showing up right in the box once your Facebook page in your
1:10
Instagram account are connected the next step
1:14
has to be done from the Chrome Web browser the reason is as of right now
1:18
the only way you can add edit or delete any Instagram ads are from a facebook
1:24
power editor and the only way you can use the Facebook power editor is in the
1:28
Chrome Web browser if you are unfamiliar with Facebook's power editor don't be
1:32
intimidated a walk you through exactly what you have to do to get your
1:35
Instagram adds up and running from your Facebook page just go to the upper right
1:40
hand corner click the little down arrow and select Manage ads from the Facebook
1:45
Ads manager select our editor again this part will only work if you're using the
1:52
Chrome Web browser otherwise you run into some snags when you select power
1:56
editor in the power editor make sure you're selecting the top tier folder
2:00
which is the campaign's folder and you want to create a new campaign named your
2:06
campaign something recognizable that you can come back to my understanding is
2:10
right now
2:11
Instagram ads are limited to clicks to a website which is fine you can use to
2:16
promote a YouTube video a press release a blog post a product page
2:21
anything you can get them to click out to a website from Instagram as far as
2:25
buying type I recommend you just stick with the auction system that they have
2:28
until you're a bit more advanced
2:30
you know what you're doing next you want to create an ad set is exactly what it
2:36
sounds like it's a set of specific ads within your campaign then of course you
2:40
want to create a new ad then click Create text you want to click over to
2:45
add sets and this is where you're going to set your budget for the adds another
2:52
purpose of an ad set is to run multiple versions of the same ad with the same
2:58
targeting and budget parameters and see which ad does better you can either set
3:02
a daily budget something like $25 a day and then once they run out of $25 worth
3:06
of website clicks whatever those clicks cost to get them they're gonna stop
3:11
showing your head or you can set a lifetime budget saying I want to get as
3:15
many clicks as I can for three hundred and fifty bucks between this start date
3:20
and ending date I prefer to have a daily budget and just let it run until I feel
3:27
like that it isn't performing a tiny deposit and create a new version or it's
3:32
running so well only continue to experiment with this ad said and see if
3:35
I can outdo myself you can also schedule times of day run ads all the time
3:40
run ads on a schedule like it will only appear between nine and five on
3:44
Wednesdays and Fridays however if you do that this is only available with the
3:50
lifetime budget settings and then there's audience this is the thing I'm
3:55
most excited about on Instagram Instagram is a facebook company we
4:00
haven't picked up on that yet and even though Instagram doesn't collect a lot
4:03
of information about their users compared to facebook facebook has a
4:07
really good idea which of their users have Instagram accounts because they've
4:11
linked to their accounts and people often share what they post on Instagram
4:14
on Facebook as well that means we can take advantage of Facebook's data set
4:19
and apply that targeting to the really simple environment of Instagram so as
4:25
his audience we're gonna be targeting is anyone the United States between 18 and
4:29
65 + so basically every adults in the United States which we don't want to do
4:36
because they're as again
4:37
more expensive so we want to get his targeted it as possible you can choose a
4:41
new audience by editing or if you have something saved from a previous Facebook
4:46
ad say you can start applying that your Instagram ads instantly just select 20
4:50
or saved audiences I like targeting so we're gonna have some fun with this I
4:56
don't know what I'm posting on Instagram yet but i wanna target everybody that
5:00
lives in Iowa you'll notice over here in the upper right-hand corner that the
5:05
potential reach has changed and it was United States was quite a bit larger now
5:10
I every started my audience to 1.8 million people only want to target women
5:15
now is down to a million people let's say between the ages of 45 and 55 look
5:25
at that now I am down to a hundred and eighty thousand people let's get more
5:30
specific I only want people that are married now we're down to 95,000 people
5:39
let's select education level has gone a doctoral degrees here we got our
5:48
targeting three hundred and ten people at select English now we're down to
5:55
three hundred people that means we cut out ten people by specifying English and
6:00
let's say we only want people that are interested in Oreo cookies twenty people
6:06
so this is getting a little to target its gonna back off and maybe say I don't
6:13
care what their education status is now back up to 1,300 people so according to
6:17
Facebook there's only twenty people in all of Iowa that are female between the
6:24
ages of 45 and 55 they have doctoral degrees and actually like Oreo cookies
6:28
and then if you want to use this audience in the future so you don't have
6:32
to go through these settings every single time just click Save audience and
6:36
then name it something next time you hit Save and you can see we've got the
6:40
overview of our audience and who are targeting Instagram announced that as a
6:45
realist are becoming available to all users as of September 30th
6:50
115 but what was not made completely clear is that they were gonna be rolling
6:56
out the availability to advertise slowly throughout October if you don't have an
7:02
Instagram column right here don't worry this became available to me about three
7:07
days after I linked my Instagram account to my business page so make sure your
7:13
accounts are linked and then if you're OCD like me you log into power editor
7:18
and try to create an ad probably three times a day for three days to a week
7:22
looking hoping and waiting for this to show up if it is available to you and
7:27
you're ready to go I recommend unchecking the other options we are
7:35
dealing strictly with Instagram Instagram very unique platform may have
7:39
different image specifications and it's best to tailor ads to a very specific
7:44
platform next click over to your ads section next you just click on this
7:51
button to select your page you manage multiple pages make sure you select the
7:55
right over here on the right you're gonna see the preview of the ad show up
7:59
as you build it and you'll notice right here this link you need to click on this
8:03
I don't understand why they make you go through this step but you need actually
8:07
click on the link that says use the Instagram account connected to the
8:10
selected Facebook page I don't know what other Instagram account I would be using
8:14
the next step is going to be to place the URL of the website you want to drive
8:20
traffic to whether it's a YouTube video or a blog post or product you're trying
8:24
to push you'll notice over here in the preview they have a learn more but links
8:28
are not available in normal Instagram post the only way you can link out is
8:32
the link that you put in your BIOS I'm sure you've seen people that are very
8:35
active and successful on Instagram will put up a promotional image and then in
8:40
the description it'll say click on the link in my bio to find out more we can
8:45
surpass that by spending a few dollars on an ad target exactly who you are have
8:49
seen it and drive them directly to your blog post and since it's a brand new
8:53
platform there's not a lot of demand yet these clips are really really cheap this
8:58
is why I'm excited about Instagram hats and oh there's more in this case I want
9:02
to promote a blog post that covers building authority and credibility on
9:06
line by getting covered by the media it's a big topics it my business partner
9:10
and I are pushing right now and people seem to be responding to it favorably so
9:14
just copy the URL and paste it in the next few months into your text one of
9:20
the tricks that I've really enjoyed playing with Instagram is typing up when
9:26
I wanna say in an Instagram post in Notepad so I can separate paragraphs and
9:32
I also like using emojis to really draw attention to the description in
9:36
Instagram unfortunately after running some experiments all of the paragraph
9:42
spacing that I tried to put in and the emojis windup going away when I publish
9:48
the ad so unfortunately emojis and separating paragraphs by pasting in from
9:54
notepad don't work also we have a character limitation unlike normal
10:01
Instagram posts so just be brief and to the point also has tags aren't going to
10:07
get your add any more organic reach however if there is a hashtag that
10:11
you're promoting or that you use regularly and you're trying to stay on
10:14
top of it dominate it can't hurt to use it and possibly get some ancillary
10:19
benefits from people seeing that you've got other stuff showing up in that
10:23
hashtag however your main objective in running these ads really is to get
10:26
people to click on the button and go to your blog post or your product page or
10:31
your YouTube video you also want your image to make people wanna look down and
10:35
see what that but missed in the five days or so that i've had access to
10:40
Instagram had so far I've had plenty of AD rejected because I just wanted to see
10:44
what I can get away with what I found is their image specifications are pretty
10:49
strict and to the point
10:50
make sure your images high-quality 1080 by 1080 pixels is the best which means
10:55
square like with all other Facebook ads make sure image
10:58
includes no more than 20% text this image I used to promote this particular
11:03
new blog post contains almost exactly twenty percent tax between my logo down
11:08
in the lower right hand corner
11:10
the announcement in the upper left-hand corner I really push things and I had to
11:14
resize it a couple of times before the ad was accepted I tried several images
11:19
and different combinations of texts and this by far has been the best-performing
11:23
ad I don't know what it is about half my face and read tax but I've been getting
11:29
clicks to the new blog post and people are clicking on the call to action and
11:33
signing up to learn more so that's exactly what I want to have happen for
11:37
my Instagram ads
11:38
the other thing is you don't have to have the button say learn more
11:42
you can't have it say anything you want but the power editor gives you several
11:45
options restricted to apply now
11:48
Book now contact us donate now download learn more
11:53
shop now sign up and watch more in this case is a blog post so I want them to
11:59
learn more
12:00
that's the best call to action of my available options I would like a read
12:04
more but apparently that's not currently available
12:08
the other exciting option with Instagram adds his ability to add video as opposed
12:14
to an image this is a little Instagram teaser trailer I put together for a new
12:18
YouTube video I'm trying to promote a little bit of caution you'll notice I'm
12:22
using the YouTube logo they do not like that I didn't actually use this trailer
12:27
because they don't like me using trademark stuff I also tried using the
12:32
new YouTube logo which is a red rectangle with a white play button in
12:37
the middle of it actually putting a play button in the middle of an image is
12:41
against Facebook's ad policies and I knew that but I wanted to see what I can
12:45
get away with also you can see that I've got way more than 20% text here that
12:50
also caused this trailer to get rejected as in the making of this video I'm still
12:54
experimenting with what I can get away with on video ads are getting plenty
12:57
rejected I've got a few accepted I'm trying to decide whether video ads are
13:01
worse running over picture add some using a video version
13:05
and a picture version to promote the same thing in the same ad set to see
13:09
which performs better you can see over here in this ad said I've got video
13:13
version one picture version one and as he's run and play out at sea which
13:18
version actually gets more action video typically gets more attention initially
13:22
but as of right now seems that a stunning picture with simple tax is
13:26
getting more actual clicks and as far as the ads go that's what I want you'll
13:31
also notice down here thirty seconds that's right
13:34
normal Instagram posts restrict you to 15 seconds but right now
13:38
Instagram's letting you run an ad for 30 seconds that seems promising and I'm
13:43
definitely able to make better Instagram teaser trailers from my youtube videos
13:47
but since it's so new I'm not quite sure if it's actually gonna be advantageous
13:50
or more restricting when it comes to YouTube trailers I can see the
13:55
possibility of actually creating miniature commercials or informational
13:59
videos showing people something in more depth because you have twice the amount
14:03
of time that you normally do with Instagram videos but again that
14:06
effectiveness is still up to experimentation I'm excited to see what
14:10
we can accomplish with this though and if your season Facebook advertising
14:15
veteran then you can also do tagging and use Facebook pixels for conversion
14:21
tracking it will cover that in another video when your ads done you think it's
14:25
ready to go
14:26
scope to the green button in the upper right-hand corner and click review
14:29
changes and it will be uploaded to your Facebook Ads dashboard and all you have
14:34
to do is wait to see the Facebook Ads team approves your ad and once it's
14:37
approved it'll be running now you have something to do this weekend hope that
14:42
helps I will see you next time
14:45
whatever you do don't straighten my shell
14:49
big head
