Facebook Marketing Bangla Video 2 | Lazuk Hasan
Watch these Facebook Marketing Tips. This Facebook Marketing Secret is very powerful and can help engagement go through the roof on the Facebook Posts that you use it on.
In this video, Lazuk Hasan The Extreme Networker shows how to draw people who like your post back to the post and make a comment. Since Facebook’s Algorithm involves Facebook Edge Rank, we know that every LIKE, COMMENT and SHARE of a post increases the amount of people who will see the post.
So when you use this Facebook Marketing Tip you will be commenting on your own post which will increase the edge rank for that post and essentially increase the audience that Facebook shows your post to.
On top of that, when you comment and tag every one of your Facebook Friends who liked your post but didn’t comment you are pulling them back to your post and a percentage of those tagged will engage and respond with a comment themselves.
Which ultimately will rack up more points with Facebook Edge Rank and the facebook algorithm which will give you more views on that image, text or video you posted on your Facebook Timeline.
This is one of many Facebook Marketing Secrets that most people don’t know about.
It’s still 2015 and you can use this Facebook strategy right now. I encourage you to use these Facebook Marketing Tips in 2016 as well. The year 2016 will be interesting for Facebook Marketing Tips and Tricks moving forward as Facebook will introduce some form of Video Marketing Ads on their Native Video Platform.
This is a great strategy to use for someone looking how to market on Facebook 2016 or any year for that matter!
Will there be more Facebook Marketing Tips, Tricks and Secrets for 2016 from this channel? Absolutely! I am committed to bringing as much value to my audience as possible and as many Video Marketing and Facebook Marketing Tips and Tricks videos that I can produce.

Facebook Marketing Tips 2016 | 1 Secret but Powerful Facebook Marketing Tip
Facebook Marketing Tips 2016. Now if you're watching this right now it's December of 2015.
Use this tip that I'm about to share with you to market on Facebook 2016 as well as
2015. So would you like to know a little secret
that I've been using to increase my engagement and the amount of people who see my posts
on Facebook? If you do, stay tuned.
My name is Billy Funk the Extreme Networker and I love teaching things that have not only
helped myself but have helped other people. And if you understand Facebook Marketing at
all you know that Facebook uses an Algorithm called Edge Rank, when it comes to showing
people your posts. So if you've got 2000 friends and you make
a post a picture post and they put it on the newsfeed of lets say 8% of your friends. Let's
say 10%. That's 200 people. Based on the amount of that group of people,
the likes, the comments and the shares that you get will then determine whether or not
Facebook shows this to more people. Or just leaves it as is.
So if you have got a post that you're looking to get more engagement on, more eyeballs,
maybe you're marketing something, maybe you're trying to get more people to a webinar, maybe
you're selling a product, maybe you've got a video you want more eyeballs on.
What you want to do is this little tiny secret that I've been using that works really really
really well. So knowing Facebook's algorithm and knowing
that for every comment you get, for every share that you get and for every like that
you get is kinda like a point system. The more points that you have the more people
will see your posts. You can simply go on any post, so here's a
post I did 7 hours ago. Talking about a free webinar that I'm hosting
on how to rank videos. And I want more people to see this post.
So I have 20 people that have actually liked it, one person shared it and I only have 3
comments. So what I like to do is to figure out who
are the people who have liked it that haven't commented yet. Alright.
This whole group of people right here. So I went ahead and I typed all their names
out. What I do is I bring up a note and I simply
type all their names out. Okay. And then I think of something to say to them.
First I'm going to thank them. I also say I really appreciate it and I'm
excited to share some really cool strategies. So what I do is, I simply grab this I grab
all their names I copy it. And I'm going to comment.
Which by the way, this is actually going to increase my edge rank because even though
it's a comment from me, it's still a comment. It's still points in the edge rank factor
of how many people see your posts. So I'm going to first write Thank You for
the Likes, then I'm going to type in all their names, and so you simply go like this.
You click on each person's name and it will actually pop up their name.
This one actually popped up that person's name twice.
So it's easier to do if you actually go to the bottom of this post to the very end of
it. I click on that person's name. So I want each person to actually see this,
there we go, put a comma. I also like to delete the last names of people.
It gives more space for you to type stuff in.
As in it's more anonymity. So I'm going to hit pause and I'm going to
show you what to do next. Alright so I finished tagging the first group
of people, Thanks for the likes and I've got 9 people's names tagged. I really appreciate
it and I'm excited to share some really cool strategies with you on the webinar. Have an
Awesome rest of your day. And I simply click on enter. Boom.
Then I do that one more time. Here's another reason why I do that. Alright besides giving
it another point. Because you're actually making a comment,
I'm also pulling all those people back into my post.
And I've yet to see when I've done this, I've yet to see at least one person not engage
with that simple little comment. See right away Michael McCormack clicked on the like
button. One of these people that I just tagged is
going to comment something, I can just smell it, I can sense it.
And it's going to increase the edge rank of this post and look I already got 3 likes on
that. One two three likes. So that's more points for Facebook to show
this to more people and more people are going to take a look at this post. And are going
to want to sign up for my webinar. Which is right here.
So this your Facebook Tip of 2016 or Facebook Marketing Tips 2016. Hope you enjoyed it.

so that helps me figure out what I should teach about next. Alright.

Best Facebook Marketing Tutorial Ever for 2017!
– Welcome to what I hope will be the best
Facebook marketing tutorial ever for you,
I'm Jerry Banfield,
it's November 20th, 2016.
I'm creating a tutorial here that I hope will be
extremely helpful for you based on my experience
doing these things for myself.
I have a verified Facebook page.
I have over two million likes on Facebook,
and my posts have reached over 768,000 people
in the last week for free
with the largest part of that audience in the US.
I'm going to show you the best of what I've learned,
in more than 10 years of being a user on Facebook,
and five years of having my business online.
I'm going to show you today,
the insides of the best of what I know how to do
with Facebook marketing.
That means not spending any money to get my content,
my videos out there for free.
I'm doing a crazy business system now,
whether I'm not selling you anything,
there's no products,
there's no more courses.
What I'm doing is basically trusting.
I'm gonna give you everything I know,
as best I can.
And then I'm trusting that you will give back to me
with what you are able to give back.
So that's what this patreon.com/jerrybanfield is.
I'm asking you if you find this valuable,
would you please essentially hire me,
for as little as a dollar a month
to keep making these videos for you.
Let's get into the very first thing.
That I think is the absolute most powerful
in Facebook marketing today.
What is the best Facebook marketing strategy
I know of for 2017?
The best Facebook marketing strategy I know of for 2017,
that's working today for me,
is live video.
Putting live video up on Facebook is by far
the best way I've found to do marketing on Facebook.
And the beauty of it is,
you can do it for anything.
Whatever it is.
You can do it anywhere,
you can do it on your personal profile,
I believe you can do it in groups,
and you can do it on your Facebook page.
And it's as easy as picking this up.
And using it.
You can live stream straight on your phone
on your personal profile,
that's the absolute easiest way
to get started with doing this.
I will show you doing it on my page here.
This is where I'm able to reach
an incredible amount of people for free,
and I'm able to multiply the effects of my Facebook ads,
and I'm able to use these live posts as an ad if I want to.
I'll start off with three examples here for you,
of doing this within the last 24 hours for the first two,
and then one I've used for months ago that I did,
that I'm still using.
This is on my Facebook page,
Jerry Banfield here.
And my main thing is being a teacher online.
Doing these tutorials,
these are my main value that I provide online.
I just play video games for fun,
as a hobby,
and to help me learn things that I can then teach.
So I put up a video yesterday,
playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered on Xbox One.
I linked also to Youtube, Twitch and Beam.
And then here's the live video I did.
Now what you'll notice,
this reached 192 almost, thousand people
on Facebook for free within 24 hours.
The majority of these people reached,
do not even like my Facebook page.
They've watched a video of mine previously.
I do Facebook page posts as ads,
if anyone watches some of the video,
Facebook then has a chance
to put any of my live streams in their News Feed.
So I've got millions of people that I can potentially reach
in a News Feed because I've shown a lot of video ads,
and now when I'm live,
these are people who are then seeing this video of mine
in the News Feed,
even though they never liked the page.
If I had to pay for this in Facebook ads,
this would cost hundreds,
if not thousands of dollars to get this reach,
especially in the US, UK, Canada,
where this is the primary place these are being seen,
and it would cost a lot of money to pay for that.
And thankfully the money I've paid for it in the past
has allowed this to happen.
So this video of me playing,
doing my hobby essentially,
5000 views within 24 hours,
about 100 likes and hundreds of thousands of people reached.
Now this is a fairly typical post here.
I did one right before it.
The same thing yesterday,
just hours before.
Hundreds of thousands of people reached,
thousands of views,
on this video.
Exact same thing.
Just having fun playing a game.
The best part is,
when you actually use this to do any of your teaching,
or any of your business system online,
this is incredibly effective.
And I made a presentation based on
what people asked me to make before they said,
Jerry would you make tips for starting a business from zero?
I said sure.
I made that exactly here.
This is a tutorial video,
a 30 minute PowerPoint presentation.
This now I've combined with ads,
and this has reached a lot of people.
But the beauty of it is you'll see,
this has reached 88,000 people with almost all of those
reached for free.
That reach was done with the live video
and the awesome part about this is
when people see this and then add
then they see all the comments that came in
during the live video and that makes for
a really good trustworthy user experience.
This is getting people visit my website.
This is getting shares all of the world.
And its advertising for a really low cost,
and page likes,
and all kinds of comments,
and link clicks to my website for under a dollar total.
Getting all those things for under a dollar.
Every dollar I spend is having a great return
in terms of getting this video out there,
and getting people learning here with me.
This is the single most powerful thing I know
in Facebook marketing currently.
There's two main reasons it's powerful.
people love live videos.
People love the interactive part of live videos.
I've got millions of people
that have watched my videos online.
And what people consistently say is that
they don't care to watch the prerecorded videos,
because they want to interact with me live.
Now most people watch the pre-recorded videos,
but out of the most enthusiastic fans
now they will pretty much only watch live,
because they want to talk with me,
they want to chat,
and they want me to chat back with them.
Live video is somewhat of the highest form
of media online right now.
And the amazing thing you can get started with this,
just pick up your smartphone,
you can live stream on your page
or on your personal profile.
I recommend if you've done little with your page,
start on your personal profile.
I saw a friend,
I haven't seen him in the News Feed in a long time.
He live streamed his Overwatch game play
on his personal Facebook profile
and I watched it for several minutes.
That's powerful Facebook marketing,
and that's powerful Facebook marketing
you can do anywhere in the world.
You can do it for fun with video games,
you can do it for serious,
with business tutorials and things like this.
So I'm grateful to have the chance
to share this with you today.
I'm doing this first run through of this pre-recorded,
but I'm planning to actually
do this live in the near future also.
So thank you very much for watching this today,
I hope this tip is valuable here with you,
and what I plan to do next is show you what I think
is the most powerful marketing you can do to start out,
outside of live streaming.
What I just showed you,
is not that easy to get started with
unless you're willing to just start live streaming
right away on your phone.
What I'm going to show you now is the best
easy Facebook marketing strategy that I can think of,
and I'm actually doing for 2017.
In fact I'm literally going to do it
as a part of making this video here for you,
and show you live as I go through the whole process.
The best easy Facebook marketing strategy I can think of,
does not involve any pages.
No groups, nothing fancy.
We're gonna go ultra simple here,
with the goal that no matter who you are or where you're at,
you can use this exact strategy
exactly as I'm explaining it to you.
This is my personal profile
and I recommend you have a good personal profile.
Good meaning loved and attention.
That you've took the time to fill out all your profile,
that you've took the time to put some photos up,
that you are being a genuine person on your profile.
So no fake profiles or games with this.
A real profile that you love
and use on a daily or weekly basis.
That's the foundation.
And you really need to have your actual friends and family
in order to do this also.
So I'm going to assume that you've got access to those
in order to do this strategy.
Then the strategy,
what I'm doing,
so I have the links you can see to my podcast.
I have just started doing daily podcast episodes,
that I hope are of an inspirational
and motivational monologue nature.
My podcast is called Happier People.
My podcast is called Happier People,
and what I want to do is get my friends in the loop on it.
I want my friends to know that hey,
I'm doing a podcast every day,
you might really enjoy that might help you.
I'm talking about my life.
You might find it interesting.
Instead of just trying to go for ads,
and getting all these people I don't know
to listen to my podcast,
I want to use Facebook marketing,
to get the people who I'm already friends with.
Did you see on my last profile,
I'm followed by 3000 people.
Where are my friends?
I have 924 friends.
If 10% of them listen to my podcast,
that would be nearly a hundred listeners a day,
or weekly whatever on my podcast.
I do new episodes every day and if just a fraction
of my friends listen to my podcast,
that would double my existing audience.
And not only that,
but a lot of my friends might really enjoy my podcast,
because they actually know me.
So here's how I'm going to share it.
Now the key thing is to be able to ask in a nice way.
I've sent a lot of messages on Facebook to my friends
asking for things like money,
in terms of a Kickstarter project,
asking for help.
The very most basic,
most powerful Facebook marketing is one to one connections.
No fancy schemes,
One to one relationships and connections.
And you do it right through Facebook Messages.
And you do it with the people you are already closest with,
and who are already active on Facebook.
This is a two-part system and I'm going execute it.
And I've already started before this
and I'm going to continue doing it,
as I do this video here with you.
I'm not asking or suggesting you do anything
that I'm not already doing.
So I've already sent my cousin Alex a message here.
So step one is to figure out exactly
how you're going to choose who to send messages to.
I've got a really simple system,
that is completely fair,
and helps me maximize my return on time.
Time is the smallest resource you have.
Even if you think you hardly have any money,
time you have even less.
You can always trade your time for money,
but time you want to focus and use your energy
in a way that's extremely productive.
step one is to find the people to send the message to.
So what we're going to do,
and I'm checking to make sure this is actually recording,
figure out who to send messages to.
So here's a really easy system for that.
The biggest waste of time sending messages on Facebook.
I have sent more than 10,000 messages on Facebook.
In the time I've been a user.
There have been periods while I was promoting my business,
I've messaged a lot of people every day.
I've sent a lot of Facebook messages.
The biggest waste of time,
I'll just say this again.
Don't gonna repeat yourself.
The biggest waste of time,
is messaging people who are inactive.
Messaging people who won't read your messages.
Messaging people who aren't using Facebook.
That's the biggest waste of time.
Therefore there's one ultra simple way to fix that.
You message people who are in your News Feed.
Message people who are in your News Feed.
And I'm taking the time to share this with you right now
because I already shared that the best strategy
I think with live streaming,
that is good for going big time.
If you want huge reaches.
If you're not doing live streaming
or if you want something other live streaming this is it.
This right here, nothing else.
How do you decide who to message?
Oh look my cousin posted an hour ago on Facebook.
Guess what cuz?
I know you're active on Facebook,
therefore I know I've got a good shot
at you reading my message.
So I already sent my cousin a message.
So if you go over here to this message,
I'm glad he didn't reply and send,
oh look he's thinking about a reply.
I'm glad he didn't send a reply
like F you back or something already.
he said okay.
So he just literally replied to this in real-time.
So I just sent him a message on Facebook,
and he replied already.
So that's exactly what we want.
Thanks Alex I didn't plan this out or anything,
this just totally happened randomly.
So you send messages to the people
who are in your News Feed already.
You know they're active on Facebook
and that's the number one thing you need to do,
is send the message to someone who's active.
all I have to do now is scroll down,
and figure out who to message.
Now here's a quick little tip,
if you are trying to sell on Facebook,
if you're trying to get clients on Facebook,
if you're trying to build relationships on Facebook,
here's a little power tip,
this is how I built my hundreds of clients
to get my business started.
I found pages who were advertising,
and then I clicked on them,
and used the little Message button and sent them a message.
Because out of all the pages on Facebook,
those tend to be the ones who are more active,
who are really interested in their business on Facebook.
And here's another little tip,
if they're spending money,
on Facebook ads,
they have the ability to spend money on other things too.
They have the mindset to spend money on other things too.
That's how I grabbed hundreds of customers.
oh look you're paying for Facebook ads.
Here would you like to pay me some
to help you with your Facebook ads.
This same strategy works great for pages.
This is the most powerful strategy
I found to get clients online ever.
Direct, focused messages.
But we're not doing that here,
I just thought since this
has got a lot of information in it,
I'd mention that here while it's relevant.
Now my cousin's,
I think I've got him on show first.
So he gets to get up in that spot.
Now look I just updated my cover photo,
more about this later,
but you can see I just updated my cover photo.
Here let me like my own page status there.
my friend Michael has got a video here.
So you can see how powerful video is on Facebook,
this is appearing towards the top of my News Feed.
Well guess what Michael?
Michael you will be getting the next message,
on this Message system.
So I've already copied and pasted this ahead of time.
It says hey Michael,
would you try listening to my podcast right here
and I'll talk more about designing this message in a minute,
to put it simply,
I've already written the message
and I'll tell you more about how to design this in a second.
There we go,
I literally just messaged Michael with that right now.
So we're going to close.
And we're going to move on to the next one.
So this is my friend and wife's friend Jenn.
And they just had,
she posts all these baby photos so I always like them,
so probably something.
So now Jenn is my next person to message
and then I'm literally just going to roll through
my News Feed,
and message one person after another.
Now what I'll do next,
is I'll show you about writing the message.
So here is a girl that I went to college with.
I haven't talked to her in a long time,
so we're going to need a little bit different message
to send to her,
than I've sent to my friend
that I talk to on a regular basis.
And then same thing for Matt down here.
And then the one person I'm going to skip on this
is my friend's wife,
because I already asked him to listen to my podcast
and he already is listening to my podcast.
So it doesn't make sense for me to ask his wife directly
to listen to my podcast when he's already listening to it.
If he thinks it's worth his wife listening to,
if he likes it enough to tells wife about it,
he will then tell his wife about it.
So that way I'm skipping occasionally
if I've already asked one person like my friend,
I've already asked my very closest friends
and then now Alex I just asked him,
then there's no need to ask often their partner,
or immediate family members.
So I want to do this with the highest impact,
but at the same time,
occasionally choose someone not to send to.
So the next part of this is to write a message
that's more appropriate for someone
I haven't talked to in a long time.
Now for Jenn,
I see Jenn on a fairly regular basis,
and I talk to Jenn.
So what I'm going to do is just
send this exact message to Jenn,
I'm gonna send the same thing I sent to Michael,
and then what I'm going to do
is just literally change the name.
So I've got it sent over to Jenn here.
So now I've sent Jenn.
Jenn's got the default message because I've communicated
and seen her on a fairly regular basis.
But now we need a different message for Ashley here.
We need a message that will handle the fact that
I haven't talked to her since I don't even know when.
If you go over to the Message here,
and I'll click Message,
we've never exchanged a message on Facebook.
Not once in probably eight plus years.
So the next step on this is to craft a message,
that is effective to send.
And now this same basic format if you want to get clients
by messaging Facebook pages,
this same basic message format
has proven extremely effective for that.
So once you know how to write a message,
to one of your friends on Facebook,
then you'll be able to also use this if you want to try
and get clients using this same strategy.
What is the best Facebook messaging strategy for 2017?
I'm going to attempt to give you that here right now.
Since I'm recording,
it seems like it's a good time to talk about this.
This is the messaging strategy that I've used
to get hundreds of clients all over the world,
and that I used to start my business on Facebook
with the help of my friends.
And then I'm using today to promote my podcast.
So this is an Evernote here.
I'm going to break down every single thing in this message,
what you're seeing is a short message,
that fully communicates the point I'm trying to say.
And this message is then optimized for friends I have not
spoken with in a long time.
Now I have to be honest with you here.
I try and be honest in everything
but by saying I have to be honest here,
mention something that I might otherwise omit.
It makes me want to vomit a little bit
to consider even doing this strategy out of fear.
I have 924 friends online.
This is a girl I haven't talked to since college.
What if she removes me as a friend?
I'm very possessive.
I'm proud of my 924 friends I have on Facebook.
I don't want to lose any of them.
So most of the time,
in my entire time using Facebook for 11 years,
I would avoid even bothering people out of fear they would
remove me if I did.
So as you can see if I click Message here
I've never sent her anything on Facebook
in eight or 10 years of being friends on Facebook.
And there's a lot of other people who
fall into this very similar category.
If you understand,
to begin with as I am doing now,
I would rather have fewer friends,
and have deeper relationships with the friends I have,
than have a bunch of friends I don't talk with.
So this process may cause a few people to remove me.
And they might say well I don't even remember
how I added you.
Why are you even my friend?
So doing this process may lose me a few friends
and I'm happy with that because I may also
get deeper relationships out of the friends I already have.
I would rather that Ashley goes ahead and removes me,
if she sees me asking for a favor
and saying I haven't talked to him in 10 years,
why would he ask me for this favor,
this is stupid I'm just gonna remove him.
I don't even want to deal with this.
I would rather her remove me and me take a chance
at being more of a meaningful Facebook friend,
instead of me just being someone
who likes photos here and there,
mostly of her children,
and then who is just another statistic.
what I'm showing you is based on this strategy
and understanding that having deeper relationships
with fewer people is usually much more effective,
than having a bunch of surface relationships.
So this is the mindset I used to craft this message here.
And the mindset I used to craft the message is crucial.
Now I figure the world is filled with other people
just like me.
In simpler terms I am everyone and everything.
So I'm really just talking to myself right now,
which is the truth.
In this room in the sense that there's no one in this house.
My dogs might be listening out in the living room.
I really am talking to myself,
you are just a person just like me though.
So I try and craft a message that I would want to receive.
So first my name is important,
especially if you haven't talked to me in 10 years,
you might want to show me
you customized this message just for me.
Even if you did take the time to change my name
and send it to 15 other people,
I'd like to know you at least
put the time into my name on here.
So step one,
we're going to send this message to Ashley first,
because I've liked a lot of pictures of her kids anyway,
so I might as well send this message to Ashley first
because she's first on my News Feed.
She's active on Facebook
there's a good chance for reading this.
So I am going to at least put her name in there,
and that way I realize the message isn't some spam thing
that was quickly copied hastily
and pasted and sent to a bunch of friends.
That is the worst most annoying thing you can do
and that will absolutely get you removed
based on my experience doing exactly that.
I've sent lots of messages like that,
and I've got removed by plenty of friends.
924 friends is how many I've had left
after a bunch of others have removed me.
I start off with hey Ashley,
or hi or you could just say Ashley
whatever it is,
and then the ask.
We're gonna go straight in to me asking for what I want.
Because that's the point of the message.
And I recommend,
ask for something free.
I was going to try and do this for my Patreon page
to start with,
but it doesn't make sense to message very many people and
ask them for money.
You got to be a pretty close friend with me
for me to try and ask you for money.
Or some company.
Then I'll just ask you for money,
who cares if you say no right if you're a company.
You've got to be a close friend for me to ask for money.
However it makes sense to ask the friends I have on Facebook
that I haven't talked to in a while,
to ask them to do something that's totally for free
and easy to do and that they might already be doing.
So this is what I call a very soft ask.
It's asking for something,
there's no sign-up required,
there's no payment required,
it's a very easy thing to ask for.
It's a very reasonable request
and it's one they can easily say no to as well.
If you ask me to listen to your podcast
I'm probably going to say no,
because there will probably be a bunch of other people
asking me to listen to their podcast too.
Now I may say yes,
but the point is I've asked something
that's free and easy to do,
and then if they don't want to do it
there's nothing in between.
there's no rational reason.
If I ask for money and this is tough,
asking for clients because you're basically,
if you're sending a message to a client,
you're pretty much asking them for money,
and that's a tough ask in your very first message
when I don't even know you.
Hey you want to spend several hundred dollars with me
to set a Facebook ad campaign up.
I asked a lot of times and it's amazingly,
hundreds of people said yes right away.
I recommend starting with something that's much more gentle.
A podcast is totally free.
A podcast if you don't know what it is,
it's basically a collection of audio files,
that are available to listen to online.
it's kind of like a YouTube for videos.
Podcasts are really simple,
they're just audio files,
you listen to them and play them.
So they're totally free.
My podcast has no ads.
There's nothing annoying,
it's just straight simple.
And it's available on iTunes or Google Play music,
which is two huge ways people access podcasts online,
and then it's available directly on my website,
where you immediately go there and just play it.
So the key thing with this whole message,
is outright asking directly for what you want
and making it something that is easy to access and do.
Because if I try asking for my Patreon page,
Someone has to spend money,
then they might be afraid of putting their billing in.
Someone has to go to some website they
probably have never heard of before.
They don't understand the interface.
Exactly what you asked should be as simple as possible
and it preferably should be totally for free
with no sign-up.
Think about this,
you're asking your friends,
ask for a small of a favor as possible.
Think about it this way.
If I'm asking you for this favor right now,
are you likely to go listen to my podcast right now
and give this a try?
I'll ask you right now.
Would you try listening to my podcast?
And then I'll put the reason on it
because I think you might enjoy listening,
and I'm making new episodes daily.
Now that's a pretty simple ask right,
you go look,
you may already listen to podcasts,
Now let's pull up a different banner here.
Now let me try and to ask you this instead.
Would you go to my Patreon page
and give me money every month?
How is that by comparison?
Not quite so simple is it?
The podcast is a very easy thing to ask for
so what you're asking for and here's critical,
so think about this ahead of time.
Think in advance as much as you can.
So this is key,
and what I try and do is include the word because,
and I include how they'll feel.
So I've asked would you try listening to my podcast,
that's the key ask,
would you try listening my podcast?
Then this part of it has links for where it actually is,
and then this part of it is why.
Because I think you might enjoy listening to it,
ie. you will feel good when you listening to it,
and then and I'm also making new episodes daily.
So it's an organic living thing
I'm asking someone to be a part of.
So those are the three parts on the message.
First the ask,
it should be really simple.
If I ask for Patreon I've gotta go explain a lot.
This is pretty straightforward and simple.
Then where can I do it,
and then a little bit of why.
Now when I sent the message to
my cousin and my friend Michael,
and I sent these messages to my other friends,
this was all I sent,
because I'm talking with those other friends
on a daily if not weekly or monthly basis.
Now for Ashley and for everyone similar,
because pretty much everyone else
that I'll do this after will be the same as Ashley.
I need one other little thing in here.
Why are they getting this message today
after 10 years or whatever it is since I added them,
why am I sending this message.
If you were trying to solicit clients
using Facebook Messages,
this part is extremely important.
I recommend the same thing in here
ask the client to do something for free,
and then explain to them why you messaged them,
out of all the pages.
What I did,
I would say in here exactly the same thing
as I've got in here.
Except then a different because.
So here's the key thing.
So I've just asked Ashley in this case
or it'll be Matt next,
I've asked the person here to do something for me.
Then I've explained why I'm asking them for that today.
And I think I can move this up a little bit
so you can see it.
I put in here I like this particular phrase,
you are seeing this message today because.
This is why I chose to send them a message.
So people will often get defensive,
or just be curious.
So this right here,
is likely to prompt curiosity,
maybe even before doing anything,
they're likely to be prompted into curiosity.
Oh why did Jerry send me this message today?
I answer that.
You are seeing this message today
because I just saw your post in my News Feed.
This shows exactly how I chose to message them.
And you can see this is all natural,
there's no faking,
there's no cheating,
there's no messing around and getting lists of people.
There's a nice simple transparent system.
You're showing up in my News Feed,
therefore I thought to message you
because you are already showing me stuff in my News Feed,
I thought to message you.
And this is really powerful
if you try and solicit clients this way,
it's very powerful because then they understand
why you messaged them.
When I say hey I saw your sponsored post in my News Feed,
then it triggers the thing in them of selfishness
in the sense their thinking they might be able
to get you as a client,
they're more likely to actually read your message
and take it seriously.
Woah that was a lot of words I just said in a row.
So deep breath and we'll continue here.
So the first thing,
qualify why you sent this message to start with.
Because I saw your post in the News Feed.
Okay that is a practical reason,
you notice I again use the word because
to connect two ideas together.
So because I just saw your post in the News Feed,
and now here's the real connection factor right here,
because I think a real friendship grows
each time one person asks the other for a favor.
I've been honest about this and saying that hey,
asking you to go listen to something
when I haven't talked to you in a while
is quite a favor I'm asking.
And I've been upfront about this and I've explained why now.
I think a real friendship grows
each time one person asks the other for a favor.
That's why I'm sharing this with you
to do this as a strategy.
I'm encouraging you to use these tools to make
deeper friends with the friends you already have,
and you may need to change this out for your business
if you're trying to solicit clients this way.
You might say something like I think a great relationship
with a client starts by one party
asking the other for a favor.
So I've got this entire message explained now.
This message is put in context,
it's a hi,
then I'm asking for a favor and explaining why.
Then I've explained why I'm doing this message here,
and I've done both a practical thing,
hey you're already in my News Feed I thought to contact you,
and then I've done over here a more of a belief system
and I'm sharing what I want out of this message.
What I want is a real friendship.
I want a real friendship where everyone
I send this message to feels comfortable
asking me for a favor in the future.
So this is the kind of thing you don't want to obviously
spam this for everyone
unless you can do hundreds of favors all at once back too.
And then finally I close it up with this phrase.
I appreciate you reading this
and being my friend on Facebook.
So I've got this now explained right here,
I've got essentially,
then gratitude for them taking the time reading it.
Now I think this is a message
that both clearly communicates what I want,
and I feel good if the person removes me as a friend
after seeing this message,
then that's good,
because if someone sees this message
and decides to remove me
then I don't want to be liking pictures
of their kids on Facebook.
That's not a real friend.
If someone sees this message and decides
they don't want to be friends with me anymore,
I want to know that today.
So I've now went and explained this message,
as deep as I can,
so now it's time to actually use this message.
So after looking at this message for Ashley
for however many minutes that was,
copy and paste this in here directly,
make sure I change the name because yes,
I've sent hundreds of messages like this
without changing the name.
You're like I know,
it didn't ruins the whole strategy I know.
You sent a message to Ashley and it says hi Nick.
It ruins the whole thing.
It just destroys it.
And I've done that,
I think it's really funny,
I've done that with clients.
I'd send one to hi,
and I'd say the wrong company name
in the beginning of the message.
And yes some people literally replied with F you.
So this message if you don't do the strategy
right can be pretty ugly.
Here's the same story here with another friend.
So I've obviously made this message
gender and friend neutral.
I can send this one message to anyone,
I go up in here and change the name,
instead of hey Ashley,
it's hey Matt and then what I do is copy and paste this
message in case I lose my place,
then what I've got is the last person I sent it to.
So then I've got hey Matt on here,
and I've already checked the links before this,
that doesn't mean they couldn't have messed up anyway,
so then I've got that now.
I explained to you why I'm not going to message
my friend's wife since I already asked him.
He's already listening to the podcast.
I trust him to tell his wife about it as needed.
And remember if I'm asking for favors,
if I'm essentially offering a favor in exchange for a favor,
I'd rather ask for as few possible.
Now this is a message here.
Tiffany I have not talked with her in quite a while,
in fact the last thing I asked her to do was give me money
with a failed Kickstarter project.
So clearly it'd be a good time to start this thing over,
or either maybe she'll decide to remove me
after receiving first a message years ago
for me to give her money,
and now a message from me asking to listen to a podcast.
So I change the name up,
and hit hi Tiffany for this.
when you've got all these hundreds of friends
and I already asked Tyler to listen to my podcast
and I believe he said something along the lines of no.
So here's another.
I see her,
I must've liked 50 of her dog photos in my News Feed.
My News Feed is pretty much all babies
and dogs at this point.
So I now and you have to make sure
you spell the name right on this,
because it just all starts off wrong.
I've spelled so many names wrong.
I mean about every way I could do it wrong,
I've done it wrong.
So now I've tried to put this together.
So I copy that and make sure it's the same,
and I send that out.
So now next,
a girl I went to high school with,
and I haven't talked to her at all through a message
so I go back through,
I enjoy seeing her posts and this is the kind of thing
like I've been scared to even talk to her at all,
ask how she's doing or anything because
afraid she'd remove me off Facebook.
So here we go we're gonna take a leap of faith,
send this message to her,
and then thankfully I spelled her name right.
Now I've got that done
and if I wanted to try and get clients,
this would be a good page I would say.
This is that kind of page.
Go for a client,
use that Message button and send a message there.
There's another photo of Tiffany and her kid.
Go ahead and like that one.
Perfect here's one,
my friend Robert.
Now I've got this set up nicely,
so that on Robert's case,
I already have been communicating on a semi-regular basis,
so I'll actually take this out for Robert,
and I'll instead say something more relevant.
So if you have communicated with the friend,
it's nice to say something more relevant.
But I just forgot to do that there and sent it anyway.
So next we're moving on.
Chant'l's did some really good work for me,
on getting blog posts on my website.
So I go up here,
paste this too and there.
So now I've sent her a message.
Now this is about enough today.
And I've went through and showed you live actually
going through and sending these messages.
Actually I'll go ahead,
I'll send one more another high school friend.
I'll go ahead and send this to her.
So take care to spell the name correctly.
That's the one thing you have to do on this right.
So there I've sent her the message,
and now that's enough.
There's an ad down here and I've today now messaged people
who are active in my News Feed.
So I want to stop at this point.
Because if say 20 or 30% of these people send messages back,
I don't want to get myself overloaded with messages at once.
If say a small amount of people flag them as spam,
which hopefully the way I've written these
will minimize them getting flagged as spam.
However if you're trying to get clients,
you will get them flagged as spam
because they don't know you.
I've sent these messages out and away now,
that I don't want to go sending anymore today.
These are friends on Facebook,
these are not people
I'm trying to just get something out of.
These are people I'm really trying to build
a deeper relationship with,
so I've done enough today.
It's more powerful to do this strategy
a little bit every day,
instead of trying to just do this over and over again,
do a hundred messages in one day.
Facebook also has automated filters
for sending a bunch of messages.
So I don't want to even get close to hitting those,
so that's enough messages today and then what I will do,
I will repeat this strategy
with more and more people in my News Feed.
That way the people who are active on Facebook,
the people who I am seeing their photos in my Facebook,
then I will either get a chance
to get them listening to my podcast,
or have them say no,
and then feel comfortable
asking for me a favor in the future,
or get them to remove me.
So I appreciate you watching.
This is the single most powerful thing
I think for doing Facebook marketing in 2017,
outside of live streaming.
If you're not live streaming,
you don't want to live stream,
or you're already live streaming and want something else,
this is it.
Thank you very much for watching this,
and I hope this is helpful for you.
Do you want to see how powerful this strategy is?
It's literally been two minutes
since I finished that last video.
Now remember what I was saying about
all the things that I put together to strategy.
In the two minutes between
when I ended recording the last one,
when I tabbed over to Facebook guess what?
both of these from people I've not talked with in a while.
Both of them with enthusiastic positive responses.
I am grateful that I've done things wrong so many times,
to be able to do them in a way that other people generally,
enjoy interacting with.
So if you want some proof that this works,
I've sent this message to seven people
I haven't talked to in a while,
and I sent it to three or four people
who I have been talking with on more of a regular basis.
My cousin responded almost immediately and said okay.
And then of the seven people I sent this to,
two of them responded in the positive
within five minutes of me sending the message.
And maybe I'll refresh my friends
and find someone removed me within five minutes as well.
I don't know but I've found this
is an amazing response rate.
To get two people responding back almost immediately,
both saying I'll check it out.
I'm really excited to go forward to
continuing one friend at a time,
one News Feed post at a time,
going through and doing this message consistently
until I've asked as many friends as I am able to,
to listen to my podcast and then go forward from there,
banking relationships with those friends on my podcast.
And if they need any favors,
they feel comfortable asking me to go try their product,
review their book or whatever it is.
Or listen to their podcast or watch their YouTube videos.
I appreciate you watching this
and I'm excited that within five minutes
of going forward with this strategy,
already great results.
What I hope you've got now,
out of what I've shown you,
is that the best Facebook marketing I've ever done,
is with my profile.
This might be different from what you've heard other places,
it might not.
If you just listen to me it might be the same.
The best I've done is with my personal profile.
I've had a client in Asia who's paid me
hundreds of thousands of dollars
to do work with his company.
That our relationship was built
through Facebook messages first,
and then through email.
I have a client who's an attorney in the US,
he's paid me 400 a month for years,
to do his ads on Google.
Our relationship was developed first
through Facebook messaging,
then through phone calls,
then through email.
Facebook messaging with my profile
is the best Facebook marketing I've ever done,
in terms of time,
I guess some of those overlap.
In your Facebook personal profile,
in a very short amount of time
you can do very high-impact work,
using the exact strategies that I've just shown you.
Your Facebook profile is all you need.
It's enough to do great Facebook marketing.
If you've heard you need a page,
you've got to get a group,
or you need all these other things,
You can do amazing things just with your profile,
anywhere in the world.
If you use it with a genuine interest to help other people.
If you use it to try and plot and scheme,
and just to make money for yourself,
it may not work very good,
but I was able to use it for that as well.
Mixed it up with the intent to help people.
The more you focus on helping people
with your personal profile,
the more you'll see that it has fantastic power,
and mainly the powers to develop relationships
through Facebook messaging.
However it may not be obvious that your personal profile,
the first key function it serves is trust.
When you look at my profile,
and you look at all the things I posted on it.
If you look at all the friends I have,
you look at what I've written,
the thing that I hope comes across,
is that I'm a real person.
Cold emailing and cold calling really stink,
because they don't have this aspect.
Cold Facebook messaging,
has the ability and has for me worked really well,
because of this trust aspect.
The personal profile shows I'm a real person
and it talks a lot about me.
It's then easier to build up relationships
via Facebook messaging.
But also with your personal profile
some of the best opportunities you have,
are with the friends you already have.
Most of us are programmed to look outside for opportunities.
In my business,
the best help I've gotten
has been from my friends and family.
My friends and family
helped motivate me to start my business.
They helped set my business up with me.
They helped keep my business alive
through giving me motivation,
through buying things,
through looking at what I was creating.
There's no way I would be here with you today,
if my friends and family
hadn't helped me so much on Facebook,
through Facebook messages.
Not a chance.
When I was trying to start my business,
my friends I messaged all of them,
and they all ya go for it,
and especially my one friend Joseph,
he's like definitely,
start your business,
and he's helped me from the very beginning.
I played Xbox with Joseph at the time,
we didn't hardly have any other relationship,
and I was able to build a relationship with Joe,
to the point where I've actually met him in person,
we each visited each other,
we talk on the phone on a regular basis,
we've made courses together.
Joseph's earned thousands of dollars working with me
and we're continuing to collaborate going forward.
That's the best of Facebook marketing you can do.
Now I've highlighted a lot about what you can do
with a personal profile already.
One of the things you can do,
it's really effective on your profile is fill it all out,
and keep it updated.
I have a hard time with this sometimes,
yes this picture is like six months old,
but that's better than having one that's years old.
This profile picture is just a few weeks old.
So you can see if you go back through my profile,
that even though I don't do a whole lot on my personal
profile with my page now,
I've still got a lot of things going on,
I still put a lot of attention.
You can see I'm not faking about having this profile.
You can see that this is a real profile,
with my real life on it.
You can see all these posts on it.
And the primary function of your profile is to build trust.
Building trust is one of the most
difficult things you can do,
and your personal profile will help you build trust.
If you then just over time,
continually put up new photos,
put out new statuses,
talk about who you are honestly,
You see on my profile,
I shared that I'm an alcoholic and an extra terrestrial.
I think human beings were created
from something on some other planet,
and mixed up with whatever was here on this planet.
That's a long story short,
that both the Bible and evolution are correct.
That there was creation,
mixed with evolution.
So I put things on my profile that might make me look bad,
and yet if you are in the UFOs and aliens,
you might see that and get all excited.
If you're not,
you might disregard that.
And if you're trying to be impressed,
you might look,
oh husband and father,
friend, teacher, student, gamer, alcoholic,
better not fool with him.
Don't wanna be talking to him anymore.
I put stuff on my profile that will encourage
the people I want to talk to me,
and discourage the people I don't want to talk to me.
I want people who are okay with me
being a whole well-rounded person.
Not some perfect,
he's a role model,
he's such a perfect husband and father,
or not some scum of the earth.
Oh he's just a drunken bum
that believes in alien conspiracy theories.
You see I want to present
my whole self on my intro on Facebook.
And I think that's the best you can do.
Take the time,
put all your work,
put where you're from,
put where you live.
Fill out your profile,
then you have a chance to use your profile most effectively.
All that being said,
I'm going to guess that you want me
to show you more about groups,
more about pages.
You're going to want me to show you
some tools outside of your personal profile.
I'm willing to do that as long as based on
what you've seen now,
you see the power of a personal profile,
and that you realize using tools
like groups and pages are much more difficult,
and they're full of failure,
they're full of things not going how you think
they should even when they go well.
I've had my page started out,
I tried to sell T-shirts on it,
and now I've went through several company pages,
all kinds of stupid things have happened
with my pages and groups on Facebook.
That has been very challenging.
It's much easier to use your profile,
and it's much easier
to get great results using your profile.
Now it's possible,
if you want to do some things I'm doing,
you want millions of people watching your videos,
you want hundreds of thousands of people seeing your posts,
yes you're not going to be able to do that
off your personal profile unless you're Mark Zuckerberg.
Then maybe you can do that on your personal profile.
If you want to set up pages and groups,
these have some really good upsides,
I just want you to know before we go much deeper,
the downsides are so bad
that hardly anyone ever gets through them.
And you could say I would think
on my page that I'm through most of the downsides,
with of millions of likes,
hundreds of thousands of posts reached each day,
you could probably say I'm through most of the downsides.
But really I'm not,
because one of the biggest downsides
to fooling around with Facebook pages and Facebook groups,
not even as much the groups,
but especially with Facebook pages,
you will be drawn into spending money more than likely.
See this little stat on here
that someone on YouTube made sure to hate on.
Oh you're just,
I don't trust you because you put this post,
you only get two website clicks,
you're faking somehow.
Facebook and if that was you that posted that,
I did kind of mean to make fun of you,
I'm sorry about that.
This is a stat Facebook uses
to attempt to sell me on Facebook ads.
I mean it looks kind of ridiculous on my page
with the 700 and some thousand post clicks,
and then there's only two website clicks.
Facebook uses this to attempt to sell me on ads.
Look hardly anyone is going to your website,
why don't you try promoting your website?
Get people you care about to visit your website.
This is Facebook's attempt
to sell me on spending money on them with ads.
What is this little statistic mean?
This means the number of people
who went to my About section on my page,
and then clicked Go to Website.
Most people only see and interact with Facebook pages
in the News Feed.
So someone yesterday goes and clicks,
if someone clicks all of these,
that doesn't count in that stat.
If someone watches a video,
comes to my Timeline,
and goes and clicks 50 different links,
goes all over the place,
it doesn't count that.
This Website Clicks is just a specific method
Facebook uses to track off the About page.
It could potentially come from
here also but not necessarily.
So if you fool around with Facebook groups and pages,
you're likely to get into areas that will demand
a bunch of your time and a bunch of your money
before you get almost anything back.
While it might be profitable,
to try and show you how easy it is,
to succeed with Facebook ads and marketing
if you'll just buy someone else's product
for anywhere from a few dollars to thousands of dollars,
and it'll be real easy if you do that.
It's very hard to get Facebook pages and marketing.
Now I could put something together,
then make it look like it wasn't.
I could rig this up,
make sure to take a screenshot
and cut this little Website Clicks out
so no one got confused about it.
I could rig something up,
then make it look really easy.
Look my page has two million likes.
I'm getting all this post reach in the US.
I can show you all this data.
this will cost me thousands of dollars.
I could rig something up then make it look easy,
to do what I'm doing.
I've spent $100,000 on Facebook advertising,
on almost all ads for my page.
I saw a client once several years ago
who had spent 60,000 on her page,
and I thought she was crazy.
I guess that makes me crazy now.
I've spent a ton of money on my Facebook page
and that's why I get this post reach now.
The first 20 or 30,000 I spent on my page were useless.
I mean I might as well have just drove down the street
and threw the money out the window.
The only good thing that came out of it,
is I learned how to do better,
to the point where I could teach it.
Doing things on Facebook pages
is real real real real real difficult.
Now there are some nice practical uses.
if you want to live stream you might as well
set up a Facebook Page and live stream on Facebook.
If you have a local business,
you might as well build a page
so people can get directions to it.
the difference between having a page
that is neglected and ignored and not well done,
versus having a page I guess like mine,
where I pay attention to a lot,
I put things up on it
and people are interacting with it every day.
There's a gigantic difference between the two of those.
Out of all the Facebook pages in the world,
there's probably one out of a thousand that's done well,
and 999 pages that are almost completely a waste of time.
So all that said,
if you're ready to get deeper
into Facebook pages and groups,
I will show you more about these tools you can use.
I will start with Facebook groups
and then go deeper into Facebook pages.
Because Facebook groups are extremely effective
at taking your personal profile to the next level.
I felt it was important to mention these things
about Facebook pages at this point though,
if you just started getting desperate.
Oh my god if he doesn't talk about Facebook pages.
So I will go into Facebook pages last.
We'll talk about Facebook groups next.
Facebook groups are extremely powerful
for networking and learning.
Facebook groups have helped me
a lot with my business online.
I'll explain to you now,
more about Facebook groups.
So what are Facebook groups?
You go to Facebook.com/groups
and then you can see for yourself.
You'll see either groups you manage on here,
and your member of,
or you'll see groups that you can join.
Groups essentially are places where
personal profiles can hang out.
Groups are kind of like a place you go to,
and hang out with your personal profile.
The main power of groups is the ability
to show up in your News Feed.
That's the best part about groups on Facebook.
You consistently will be able to get your group posts
into the News Feed with group members.
I have learned a lot with groups.
I've done some awesome things with groups.
So here's the inside of a group
that I'm an admin of with almost 900 members.
This is a group where we are here to do gaming.
Now I don't use this group much anymore,
because I've got so many people who want to game with me,
I've had to switch it up to a donation only system.
When I first used this group,
this group was really helpful for me
to find other people to play
Call of Duty: Black Ops Three with.
And people are still posting in this group today.
The nice thing is,
you see this post here.
This post has a good chance to make it into
the News Feed of any potential group members.
So what you get in a group,
you get the ability to add posts specifically in the group,
and then these posts go out into the News Feed
of some and maybe even all group members.
There's lots of tools in groups that are nice.
You can create polls,
you can have documents specific to the group,
you can have photo albums,
you can have events,
you can even sell things within the group.
I'm not sure if you can live stream in the group yet.
You then can look at the members in the group.
You can have events in the group,
like I use this event in the group here,
to do the Shadows of Evil Easter egg on Xbox One.
And we finished the Easter egg in this event.
Helped get the Easter egg completed.
And then there's videos that members
can post to the group and there's photos also.
So a group is a nice place to hang out on Facebook.
It's a great place to make new connections and learn.
I'll show you some of what I've done
with groups as best I can.
The best group I actually participated in,
was called the Udemy Studio.
Now I actually have been permanently banned
and I can't even see the Udemy Studio anymore,
because they kicked me off of the entire website,
of what I would say is I was doing too much on the website.
I was teaching people how I made all this money
on the website.
I was showing all these strategies
that they weren't against the policies,
but they probably didn't like me doing things
like telling that hey you just hire a freelancer overseas.
Pay them a few hundred if not a few thousand dollars
to make a course with you,
throw the course up on Udemy,
make some Google ads and there you go,
lots of sales.
Not against the policy,
but they didn't like that.
So if you do too well somewhere,
you may end up getting kicked out.
Not because you've done anything wrong as much as they just
don't want you controlling and dominating things anymore.
If you get to do too well somewhere,
it may end up ending things much earlier.
So today I tried to just be useful and helpful,
instead of trying to dominate and take over like a virus.
Which is what I tried to do before.
Long story short though,
the Udemy Studio was the most helpful group
I've been in on Facebook,
and you find groups.
So I go over here and search for.
I can see this Udemy Faculty Lounge.
So this is for Udemy Instructors only.
This is very similar to the Udemy Studio,
except there's about a tenth of the number of people in it.
What I did,
I applied to join group,
and then once I was inside the group,
I got to connect with all these people in the group,
and then the Udemy Studio started to dominate my News Feed.
Out of 80 or 100 posts I counted one week,
there were 70 or so posts
that were from group members in the Udemy Studio group.
So what you do when you join groups like this,
I'm not planning on joining this one,
just using it as an example.
When you join a group like this,
then you can do really good for making connections.
So in here there's lots of people in this group,
that I'm an admin of for my gaming.
A lot of people who have connected
and been able to find other people to play with.
And then when you do something like I was talking about,
the Udemy Studio group,
then if you have a group of focused people together,
you then can learn and grow together.
I saw some posts in the Udemy Studio
by an instructor who said he was making hundreds
of thousands of dollars on Udemy.
And I saw his courses he gave away all his courses for free,
I took his courses,
I looked through them and said,
wow I know I can make better courses than this
and I'm sure I can do whatever he's doing
to promote my courses.
I got the exact same results he did.
I made hundreds of thousands of dollars
and he mysteriously left the website.
A month or two before I mysteriously left the website.
So Udemy Studio group was so powerful learning for me that
I was literally able to repeat another person's results,
based on what they shared in here.
So if you look at groups as an opportunity
as I've mentioned here,
for both networking,
now this to me seems obvious.
You try and go into a group and network.
If you got some program you're on,
you're trying to get everyone in your program,
try and get links to your website.
But this is not so obvious.
Facebook groups are extremely powerful for learning,
because they make it simple
to get access to what other people know,
and they're often closed private groups.
So if you click on create a group,
Facebook will give you these different options.
You can connect and share,
get things done,
buy and sell,
there's different options that Facebook gives you,
so you can get things done
and recommends a closed group for this.
Anyone can see the group,
as in that Udemy Faculty Lounge,
but you can't see the actual posts
unless you're part of the group.
And I think that's a really valuable part
of being in a group.
So it's just this easy to create a group,
and then not be able to go forward
and get the benefits of it.
The best groups I've found
are ones you could say they're niche groups,
they're ones related to things I'm trying to do online.
So I search for that Udemy Faculty Lounge group.
And then you can see even some of the posts people have made
outside that are available on friends.
So when you go to look at a group like this,
these are the kind of groups I've found most powerful.
If you're trying to work online
like I've been working online.
If you're trying to be a freelancer online,
I think groups related to the exact things you're using.
So I'm not using Udemy anymore so that wouldn't make sense.
So I could even search for Canva up here,
and Facebook puts things in however it wants to so.
Make it search for Canva,
and then click on groups.
So see now one of the programs
I use to design my Facebook page thumbnail is Canva,
so that's a specific thing I'm using.
So if I wanted to get better at using Canva,
then here's a group for example I could join called
Canva's Inner Circle.
So this is a group where theoretically
I could learn to get better at using Canva.
So I've never done any anything with this before,
I just randomly searched for it now,
in terms of learning about this.
And one way you can find out groups
is you'll see what groups your friends are in.
You'll notice when I looked at the Udemy Faculty Lounge,
there were a bunch of my friends
in that group because while Udemy removed me,
many of my friends did not.
So you can see them when you go to members of the group,
you'll see I have these friends,
who are in the group here.
So it's helpful if you see a bunch of your friends
are in a group,
that might be a good indication
that that group could be a good place
for you to be friends on,
or if you don't have any friends in the group
like in this Canva group,
I don't have any friends in this Canva group,
so this could be a good place to network.
I think if you're going to do well,
the groups though,
you really need to have the learning objective as key.
You want to be able to learn whatever it is
related to what you're doing.
So the Udemy Studio is so powerful for me
because I learned a lot from that group.
Top instructors shared their strategies
so completely in that group,
that I literally copied them and became a top instructor
myself until now I'm just another empty page on Udemy.
So you can learn really powerful things in groups,
and then instead of browsing your Facebook News Feed,
and just seeing baby pictures like my News Feed is,
baby and dog pictures,
you can see some things that are really useful
for learning with your business.
The problem is,
Facebook groups can help you obsess too much
over your business.
As you can tell,
probably a problem for me,
I've experienced obsessing too much over my business.
When every time you go to check Facebook,
you're getting back involved with your business,
and your checking Facebook first thing in the morning,
last thing in the evening,
then someone shares some post to get you all pumped up.
Facebook groups can get out of hand
if you use them too well.
You can become obsessed with things.
I was obsessed with Udemy Studio the first year or so,
the last several months that I was in there,
before I left it,
I was obsessed over it.
And then I got into a bunch of trouble
on Udemy because I got in trouble,
I got some of my reviews removed and I shared a huge rant
in the group about I have simply done
what another instructor done that except
he had gotten about a thousand or maybe 5000 reviews
the same way I had,
and I shared my disgust that they go take mine away
and not take any of his away,
and then I left the group and caused a big problem,
and that all got the snowball rolling
of eventually Udemy not liking me and getting rid of me.
So groups have a powerful up and down.
Groups can be very effective.
Now if you join groups you're not passionate,
you don't care about,
that for example if I joined a Canva group,
I use Canva as a tool,
it's not something that I'm using all the time.
I teach on Skillshare,
so I joined a Skillshare mastermind before,
but I left because I leave groups if I don't use them,
because they put so many posts in your News Feed.
I think if I was trying to teach full-time on Skillshare,
instead of just doing it for free,
this'll be a great group to be in
and this would be a group where I could learn and grow,
out of participating in this group.
Groups have huge upsides
but they also can have huge downsides.
Getting into drama,
and if I hadn't been a Udemy Studio member,
I doubt I would've ever gotten all the results
I got on Udemy,
and the same time I doubt I would've ended up
getting banned on Udemy,
and getting a bunch of people
that worked there to not like me.
So groups have huge up and huge downsides.
Groups can allow you to reach a lot of people.
This group for Skillshare has a thousand members right here,
and many of them have the chance to see
posts in the News Feed.
So for Facebook marketing using Facebook groups effectively,
is one of the most powerful ways to reach new people,
and to make your time on Facebook worth it.
To make your time on Facebook
and not simply an exercise in liking baby and dog photos,
but to make it a productive part of learning
and building your business or whatever it is
you're trying to do online.
If you join groups and are looking to just take from them
and not give anything,
if I join the Skillshare group
and just looked to use it to get more students,
that likely wouldn't work.
If you join a group with the intent to be
a productive group member,
like I join Udemy studio to try and learn
about Udemy and try and do better at Udemy.
I didn't join it with the intent
upfront to get a bunch of students.
Now I've certainly used it that way,
as I went along in there.
I gave all my courses away for free
as I saw other instructors were doing.
So these groups can be fantastically powerful,
but they also can take up a ton of your time and energy.
So if you've never joined groups or tried them out,
I think they're a really good part of working on Facebook.
I'm hardly doing anything with groups,
because I have enough going on
on my Facebook page.
My Facebook page is a full-time job by itself.
Doing all these things I do on my Facebook page
takes so much time and effort,
I don't fool around with groups.
And then when I go on my Facebook News Feed,
I don't want to see a bunch of things
that'll get me thinking about my business.
I just want to go click on my Home tab here,
and see videos my friends share,
scroll past the ads,
see what my friends are up to,
hear what other people are doing,
and then see pictures of my friends out doing things,
scroll past ad,
and then look,
more baby pictures,
go ahead and like that,
and that's what I want to see in my News Feed.
So this is how I'm using groups today.
This is some of the experiences I've got using groups,
and I appreciate the time you spent here
learning with me about groups.
Now next part go into Facebook pages.
Welcome to the Facebook pages section of this class.
Here's my complete summary of Facebook pages.
Facebook pages allowed top 1% results,
with 99% failure.
Facebook pages are very much a tool
of the elite so to speak,
and it is not easy,
it's extremely hard to get your Facebook page into that 1%.
Yes you can get lucky.
Yes you could just do something and it'll take off.
99.9% of the time I'd say that's not going to be the case.
I've already said it once in this,
I'll make sure to say it again.
I've spent over $100,000 advertising my Facebook page.
I've made thousands of posts.
I've spent hundreds if not thousands of hours
live streaming on my page.
To get the results I'm about to show you.
I have had not one, two, three
at least four if not five or six Facebook pages.
I am on my last Facebook page now.
My first Facebook page was for my website.
I bought some fake like sport on Fiver and it went nowhere.
I created another page for my next company.
And that I got up to over a hundred thousand likes.
I rebranded it and did another page
called The 100,000 Likes.
I tried to transition that to a new company page,
I got it stolen in the process.
Someone I added as an insight analyst,
in the process of trying to sell the page to them,
was somehow able after I removed them from the page,
to get restored to the top level admin
even though I'd never added them there,
they stole my page,
and I would guess they were posting
a bunch of nude photos on it,
to all my fans and I would guess they lost the page
and got it taken down after that.
This now is my Facebook page.
It has over 2 million likes.
It is now branded with my name.
All of my pages before were branded with company names
and things like Real Productive Life LLC,
the website name,
this is the best way I've found,
to brand a Facebook page.
Brand it based on you,
and don't brand it based on your real estate
or whatever company working with,
because you might have to change that in the future.
I've set my Facebook page up with the intent
I can use it this way for the rest of my life.
That I never have to switch pages,
that I never have to change my brand out,
this can be my Facebook page forever,
until I die and then maybe the Facebook page
goes on for hundred thousand years until it dies too.
And then I'll have lived 100,000 years
because of my Facebook page.
I know that's ridiculous.
The point is,
I use my Facebook page,
I've got a nice short URL,
I can see it's all consistent,
and marketing what you want is consistency.
My whole business,
everything I do online is branded Jerry Banfield.
When I started out my YouTube channel
was branded my gamer tag.
Then my company websites had all different names.
Then my Facebook page often didn't match the company website
name because I'd make some new company website,
still be using the old name,
then I tried Facebook pages named a 100,000 Likes,
got that stolen.
Then I had this was called Banwork LLC,
and thankfully I was able to change both the name,
and the little short name for it.
I was able to change both of those to Jerry Banfield
and get it verified,
so I didn't lose the 600,000 or million likes I had on it.
Now Facebook is minimizing likes,
at least as they're visible.
Now I've got 2.2 million and here's the amazing thing
about pages though.
It doesn't even matter who likes your page anymore,
it matters who's interacting with it and watching videos.
Even if they don't like the page.
So I'll show you two of the things I like the best
about my page here in getting started,
and I'll go through with you one step at a time,
all the different parts of Facebook pages
that I think are worth learning.
The single most powerful tool on Facebook pages
is the ability to live stream.
If you run ads for your videos or previous live streams,
everyone who sees as far as I can understand,
I can't officially confirm this
but according to the insights,
this is what it looks like.
It looks like if anyone starts viewing one of my videos
anytime I live stream,
I can get back in their News Feed again for free.
This is the most powerful tool I've found on Facebook.
It's located right here.
So you go to publishing tools.
You go down to video library.
And then you click live.
This will give you a set of tools
that you can use to live stream.
Now all it does is put up a link you have to have
your own live streaming software.
So what live streaming software do I use?
Well click on JerryBanfield.com on Facebook.
I will go over to the resources tab
and I will switch that up on the header.
If you want to see what I use to live stream,
I use if you scroll down,
I've got all the stuff I use in my business system here.
What is it I use?
I use Patreon as my main business payment system now.
Website domain I use Go Daddy.
WordPress I use Enfold theme.
Live streaming and green screen tutorial videos,
I'm recording this now on Wirecast 7 Pro for Mac,
as I'm actually teaching this on my Windows computer
but then I'm capturing the screen
with HDMI out into my Mac Pro,
which has Wirecast 7 on it.
The software I use is Wirecast.
Now if you want,
there are other options.
This is what I use.
So I'll go click on try Wirecast here,
and if you do want to buy Wirecast,
would you please use my link on here,
and then I get a 15% commission on it.
If you're considerate enough to take the time,
and that you get the same price on it either way.
Wirecast just then thanks me with a commission,
based on telling you about it,
which I'm doing now because I use it.
I also have an affiliate link
on it though because I might as well.
I hardly make anything out of all
of my affiliate marketing combined,
I should mention that.
This is Wirecast.
It costs $495 to buy.
I think I have the $1000 one
and then it costs money to upgrade every time.
I have the pro one,
because it has some additional features,
the added input sources,
web streams are helpful and then so I'm using Wirecast Pro.
And this is available for both Windows and Mac.
So whatever you're using,
that's what I use to live stream,
that's what I use to record this.
So you can use other things.
There are free programs to live stream,
that's just what I use because I like that it works on Mac,
I like the recording tools,
I like the interface,
how I can easily change things around,
I can go left on this if I want,
I can blow this up and put my face,
my monitors off to the left on it as I'm controlling it.
So I can move things around effortlessly
in real time as I record also,
and I think that is why it's so helpful.
So I record on Wirecast,
and then all I need to do on Wirecast
is set up my output to go to Facebook
using the instructions provided at this live tab,
and then I can live stream anything on this screen.
I can live stream games,
I can live stream tutorials,
I can record tutorials,
everything I do is based with now with Wirecast
and live streaming or recording these tutorials.
So this is the single most powerful part of Facebook pages.
Because this effort well not effortlessly,
this handles putting up all your content.
The most important part of your page
is what do you do for someone else.
When people are reading your post,
this is the foundation of whatever you're doing for them.
So these posts are the foundation
of whatever I'm doing for people.
And then as I advertise some things,
like none of these videos can be,
or I haven't advertised any of these videos.
And then the videos down here,
then some of these have been advertised
if you go down far enough,
like this QuickBooks self-employed tutorial.
This has been advertised,
so this then allows me to advertise
in the exact same format,
as I live stream.
So this to me is the very most powerful tool
on Facebook today,
because it allows you the best chance
to get in the News Feed.
I've got my entire reach today,
if I scroll up on here,
I've got my entire reach in all the insights
I'm going to show you,
based almost completely on live streaming.
So this post reach is the most valuable part
of having a Facebook page.
The ability to get tons of people to see your posts.
This is very hard to do with a personal profile,
and even in a group you can get tons of people
to see your post,
but if you want to reach a lot of people,
live streaming videos on Facebook
and especially if you combine that
with advertising those videos,
that's the best way to do it.
Now what I'll do next,
I'll show you inside my insights,
so you can see more into the results I'm getting.
Welcome to this Facebook pages insights tutorial here,
for use in 2017,
created on November 20, 2016.
These are the insights on the inside of my Facebook page,
that you might be interested to see.
Here if you take a look,
you will see exactly how many people my page is reaching,
and what exact method is happening with that.
So what you'll notice,
the majority of my page reach is organic.
using the plus live button within publishing tools
and video library.
The majority of it is organic,
so if I click on it,
it'll show you where that was.
So most of these impressions here,
are on this particular day.
This live stream reached 183,000 people for free,
it got all that engagement for free.
This one 74,000 for free on that same day.
And then on that day also,
50,000 people reached for free with a post I advertised,
or were paid to see my post and then 1400 organic.
So on that particular day,
if I show you yesterday then I reached over 200,000 people,
all of it was for free yesterday.
That was for posts that were actually published yesterday.
So this shows you for posts that were published
by that day how much you reach.
Then these are the reactions I've got.
Now these reactions have turned down a lot
because I turned my ads down a lot right here.
So I cut my paid ads as you can see,
there was a larger paid reach here,
and then I cut that down.
So as I cut down a lot of the paid ads,
I got less results,
but also with the live streaming,
these big live streaming reach days
also brought a lot of reactions.
So the main kind of reactions are likes on the post.
This is just crazy about 108,000,
I don't even know how to getting that in there but,
108,000 reactions on the like here.
And that might count as video views as well.
So you'll see a relatively low rate,
given how many people are reached.
A relatively low rate of people hiding all posts,
or of people clicking spam or something else.
So this then is the total reach,
you'll see most days that I live stream,
my page reaches 50 plus thousand people,
some days it reaches hundreds of thousands like yesterday,
and then most days I have 50 to 100,000
of advertising reach also.
Now the cool thing is,
on the insights I'll go down here and click on people.
Now this is one of the weirdest things
that I've seen in doing my Facebook insights
over the last year.
This is one the biggest changes.
I'll show you these are the people that like my page.
Now I've gotten so many comments,
thousands of nasty comments about where my page likes
If you don't discriminate,
if you don't discriminate,
then wherever the page likes are from is a blessing.
When you see that every person is an equal on this earth,
and you don't simply judge them
in terms of their dollar value,
but you judge them based on their desire
to be helped by you,
then you see these insights and they're amazing.
If you simply quickly write off
oh well people from Pakistan or Bangladesh,
those are just click farms
or they're never gonna buy anything.
Neither of those are true.
I have gotten a bunch of sales from Pakistan
and even from Bangladesh and Nepal.
Every country on here has bought something from me.
Now that's amazing.
And I'm grateful so many sales in these countries
someone actually paid $1000 an hour
to talk to me from Pakistan about Facebook ads.
These countries all have people that are interested
in whatever help it is you can provide them.
I'm grateful I've got so many fans from Pakistan.
Pakistan is the country where I have the most likes from.
Then Bangladesh and Nepal and Indonesia,
Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Philippines, Morocco,
then the US.
Check this out I only have 55,000 likes in the US.
Out of 2.2 million.
Now remember this,
in just a minute before you just tune out
and think you know everything.
Wait just a minute and look on this next page
I'm going to show you.
So if you're watching from Pakistan,
Bangladesh, Nepal, Indonesia, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia
or the Philippines or Morocco,
top place I have page likes
I'm very grateful for your support here.
You've made this possible.
If you hadn't been a part of liking
and watching the videos on my page,
there's no way anyone else anywhere
would've taken notice for me.
So I'm grateful.
So many young man especially in these countries
liked my page,
my page then was clear proof for my Facebook teaching
that I knew what I was doing with Facebook ads,
and that's allowed me to reach people everywhere.
Now these are my actual page likes.
You'll notice most everyone does speak English on my page.
Now check this out though.
Now keep it remember this number 55,000 page likes
from the US.
Now let's go over to people reached.
Now look at this.
Even though I have 55,000 likes in the US,
I reached 653,000 people in the US,
in the last week.
Actually this is the past 28 days here excuse me.
Facebook uses seven days if you look at the page here,
this is seven days.
And then this is 28 days.
So every 653,000 people in the US
in the last week with my posts.
And nearly all of this is been organic
because most of the ads I run are global.
I can reach people globally
for way less than spending money in the US.
So almost all of this reach,
653,000 in the US for free.
I'll see if I can zoom in a little bit on that.
So if you notice,
I'm reaching people who haven't liked my page
for free in the News Feed.
Now how am I doing that?
I think, I don't know,
I think it's anyone who has watched
one of my videos in a certain time period.
Whenever I go live using the publishing tools,
whenever I go live Facebook potentially shows them
that I'm watching a video.
I've had lots of people who told me they saw my live stream
because their friend is watching it.
One guy in particular,
his girlfriend came on the live stream looking for him,
because she saw on her News Feed
that he was watching my live stream.
She came in and commented
and said have you seen and then whatever his name was,
and then he popped up in the chat
after that saying oh hi yes I'm here.
That was one of the cooler things
I've seen happen in my live stream.
That apparently seems to be how it's happening.
So even though I have spent a lot of money
advertising US too,
I've shown a lot of video ads in the US
for as low as eight cents CPM,
yes that means eight cents to show a thousand people an ad.
Yes, that's with a gaming video,
like the live streams I've shown you.
I'm able to reach people for free
in the US and all over the world.
You'll notice these countries where I have lots of likes,
I'm also reaching a lot of the people
who like the page each week too.
And almost every live stream
people from these countries are stopping in to say hi.
I even reached 27,000 people in Iraq in the last month.
How cool is that?
And some of these I don't even know where some of these are.
And I don't even know how to say that.
10,000 people in Vietnam reached,
in the last week.
The power of Facebook is just incredible
for both local and global reach.
If you do live streams,
and if you then partner that with either marketing it,
or if someone watches one of your live streams,
and shares it with a friend,
then potentially every time you go live,
you can reach not only the person themselves who watched,
but the friend that watched for a minute too.
So if you want viral reach,
this is by far the best strategy.
if you want your page to just get crazy numbers,
this live streaming feature is really powerful for that.
and I've seen other people
doing live streams on Facebook as well,
and I'm guessing that the results are there for them too.
So this is the very best of what I've seen working
on Facebook in terms of Facebook marketing,
especially powerful when combined with ads.
From here I'll show you some more things
that will be useful,
I hope for running your page on Facebook.
Here's a Facebook page post creation tutorial.
This is the best strategy I've found,
for both creating posts
that work really well to get interaction,
and to create ads.
Almost everything I do in Facebook ads
is built upon my Facebook marketing.
so I simply take a post on my page and advertise it.
And that's worked really well for me.
So what I'll do in this is show you how I make a new post
and I'll show you one I'm using
to try and make sales on a course.
I'm showing you one that has a long free tutorial video.
So what you'll see is the ability in Facebook
to go through and hit Photo/Video.
So the very best kinds of posts I found on Facebook
you use this Upload Photo/Video.
You upload a long video tutorial
or short preview video or an explainer video,
whatever kind of video or an entertaining video
like a gaming one,
a funny video.
Make sure it's your video.
Don't use anyone else's videos.
you might've seen people doing that
and getting away with it.
It's not good to try and do things
you won't get away with in the future.
If you've heard anything at all by now,
you'll have hear how many things I've messed up.
Try and do your,
just do you.
Make your own videos,
and then share them.
So I do that and this video
is a collaboration among three different people.
My friend Joseph Delgadillo and then my friend Nick.
We've all collaborated together to make a Python tutorial,
that then sells a Python course.
So this is a two plus hour Python programming preview.
Just like when I went through
and showed how to do the messaging before,
it's important what kind of actual video you put up.
Put a video out there that will either entertain people,
make them laugh,
or be funny or worth sharing.
Or put something out there that's helpful to learn from.
What I'm showing in this Python video,
is about the same kind of thing
you might learn in high school,
and the difference is it's completely for free
available right now to anyone in the world.
Those tend to be powerful types of things to put online.
Putting up a sales video
of why someone should join in with your program,
not likely to work that good.
Putting up something sending people to a squeeze page,
not likely to work that good.
I know because I'm not saying it won't work all the time,
in every scenario.
I'm saying the best chance you have
is to do it this way.
You can do it another way
if you want to and test out the results you want.
A wise person learns from the mistakes of others.
I've put up lots of videos.
These are the kind that have worked the best.
The gaming ones also work very good to get a huge audience,
but these work the best to actually make sales.
These work the best to get
people just like you following me.
That is why I want to do all my work online.
Is to be of service to you,
just like this.
So this is what I found works the best.
Just putting the information out there.
This video I start off basically with a sales pitch,
of why you should watch the video in the first place.
What is the point of watching this video?
I go and explain that in-depth.
I show how much money people are making an hour
working online as a result of using the same type
of information that I essentially get people started on
using the video,
and then if they want to learn more,
it's just nine dollars to take the course then,
which is affordable in most places in the world.
Now what have I done after I uploaded the video.
So I've got a long tutorial video,
which then sells a course.
I have a description here,
which includes three different basic parts.
So let's start with the first one.
This is the point of watching the video.
It says Start Python Three programming today.
It's both the title of the video,
in the sense,
now I realize Facebook has a separate category over here,
this is the main point of the video.
It's both a call to action and it explains what it is.
I want people to be able to start Python Three programming
as a result of watching this video.
That's the purpose of the video and that's what it contains.
So I have a very short,
four or five,
depending on if you count three as a number or not,
I have a very short basic description of the video
in these first few words here.
And then what I have are alternative options
to get people watching on YouTube is the second part.
I like because Facebook ads are so cheap,
to target to an interested audience compared to YouTube,
I like to use my Facebook ads if possible
to send people over to my YouTube channel.
Because on YouTube I do actually get some money
just for people watching it.
Two dollars every time 1,000 people watch a video.
So if I get a million views I get $2000 in ad revenue.
I want people to watch on YouTube
because I have a ton of YouTube remarketing set up then,
and for some people they might not want to watch this
two hour tutorial video on Facebook,
they might see it and say that's good,
and then link clinks to YouTube tend to be really cheap.
Because YouTube is a trusted source.
People know YouTube.
They've been to YouTube.
They've heard of YouTube before.
And some people if they're interested in watching this
but they don't want to watch it all right now,
they'll click over to YouTube,
and then when they go on their desktop later
they'll go to their watch history and pull it up on YouTube.
YouTube is my main asset in terms of getting people
to watch and learn with me.
So after I introduced the video topic,
then I put a link in to send people over
to the exact same video on YouTube.
So there's no sales yet.
The first time I'm what it is,
the second I'm giving them an alternative to watch,
and then third,
then I go for the sales at the very end.
So this is a funnel essentially in and of itself.
Most people will only be interested in this.
A few people will want to go deeper and watch on YouTube,
or watch again later,
or it might not work on Facebook,
they might go to YouTube,
and then for the very most enthusiastic people,
who really are excited about it,
then they can go take the full course at JerryBanfield.com.
But not just that,
they can go do all other kinds of things on my website also.
The beauty of this is then,
that this is a ready-made ad also.
I now literally just need to duplicate a previous ad,
and switch this post out in place of it
and switch my targeting.
I've got an ad ready to go.
That's why this is so good,
when you do it this way,
then you've got a ready-made ad out of it,
and then everyone who watches the video
can potentially see me live stream again later.
This is an incredible system that I'm showing you
how to run the whole thing of it.
these quick introductory lines here,
then send people out to wherever they want to go,
if they enjoy the video.
And then from here these things are just to help
the video show in different places on Facebook.
So the title is essentially the same thing as my first line,
and then these tags help me to get more organic views.
So if this video gets a lot of views,
it'll have a chance to show up for free
in various places based on the tags.
And then finally with the thumbnail,
I used Canva to make a simple thumbnail format
because on Facebook,
pretty much the only thing the thumbnail can do
is cause you problems.
If you have too much text on it
then you can't run it as an ad.
And the default thumbnail pulled something
just a random shot from the video.
And then that's got a bunch of text on it,
so I put in a custom thumbnail with one word of text,
a picture related to it,
and then me.
So if people were seeing my videos over and over again,
they'll recognize my face in the different topics,
among many different videos.
So I actually uploaded this and saved it as a draft.
I switched it over,
now it was a draft.
I switched it over to published,
and then I hit save and publish here,
so this will go out live on YouTube.
Where am I?
I'm at home.
My feet are on the ground.
We're doing a Facebook marketing tutorial here okay.
So now this is available on Facebook,
I clicked the links to make sure it works,
so this goes directly to the video over on YouTube,
click this to make sure it works,
and this goes straight over to my website then.
So I've got this set up now
and then I shall go ahead and like it,
give it the first like,
and now this is ready to go,
both out to my existing audience,
all those people I just showed you on the insights,
who are primarily watching for my tutorial videos.
This video is out for them now,
it's two hours of tutorials that
they may not be able to learn in school where they're at.
They've got it right here for free.
You can see I start off in the video.
Over here I think I need to pause the audio on it.
you can see I start off in the video explaining
basically selling people on why the video is worth watching.
I show them what the video contains,
and then Nick goes in,
actually doing the programming tutorial with Python.
And then at the end of the video,
I explain to them more about what I'm doing.
So this video is a collaboration
among three different people,
to get really helpful content out there
to the people that need it,
and then to maybe make some money for us in the process,
so that we can keep doing the same thing.
So this is the most powerful method I found,
of creating individual posts on Facebook,
and then essentially when I live stream
I just use the exact same format.
So these live streams you'll notice,
I'll scroll down here,
the live streams are essentially created very much the same.
The only difference is,
I include on the live streams
links to go watch my live stream on other websites.
So that way you'll see the reach goes out so much,
even 5000 people watch the live stream on Facebook,
but lots of people came to watch on YouTube,
and I think someone even came to Beam.
So my live streams are basically created the exact same way.
So this is an awesome set up
because I now have a perfect post to use for an ad.
I can literally set this for website conversions
on here now and optimize it,
by people who actually go to my website.
So I can target this worldwide,
optimize it by people to go to my website,
and allow Facebook to use all of its data
to figure out what kind of person it thinks
will go to my website.
So this is a beautiful system for creating posts on a page.
And this a nice thing in the page
you can't do very well in a group or on a personal profile.
So if you're willing to put the effort in
to get to the point of being able to do this,
you can get some really good results from it.
I appreciate you watching this tutorial,
and hope it's helpful for you.
I appreciate you going through so much of this with me.
We're wrapping up towards the end now.
One of the last things I'm going to cover
are the profile and cover photos for your Facebook page.
And you can use this also for your personal profile
as desired or for a group as well.
These details have changed recently,
as Facebook has moved things around.
So this is an updated tutorial that I hope will show you
exactly how I've made my cover photo,
and give you some options for making your cover photo.
Here's my Facebook page with my profile picture on the left,
and then my cover photo right here.
On the profile picture I have messed around with
different profile pictures,
and my goal on the profile picture is to give someone
a piece of what they can expect in every video.
You've got my face on every video like this,
it makes sense to just stick that up as my profile photo.
Because then it's consistent with everything else,
and that's real.
I tried an illustrated version,
people like the actual picture better.
So what I did,
I simply took a picture from one of my green screens
with no background on it,
and stuck that up there using Wirecast.
Then I used Camtasia to capture a frame from it,
and then I uploaded that as the photo.
I cropped it into what you can see here
which then is just a picture of my face.
So I think if you're branding a Facebook page,
the way I suggested,
just putting one with a simple picture of just your face
up there like that as I've done is a great way to do it,
because then when it shows up in the News Feed,
it'll come with your face in a recognizable size
and a recognizable face,
It should help you with consistency,
getting people to know that's you again.
So I've done that.
there's nothing fancy I have to do.
Don't have to hire anyone,
just get a picture against my green screen.
Now you could do this,
get someone to take a picture of you wherever you want,
just an isolated picture of your face and put that up there.
I think that's a easy way
to do a good enough Facebook profile picture.
Now the cover photo is for business so to speak.
The profile picture is me.
The cover photo is to get people involved.
And to show people how to get involved.
So I'll do this in a couple of different parts.
I'll show you exactly my philosophy for designing this,
and then I'll show you how I've actually designed this
and how you can design this yourself.
And this is new,
the profile photo used to cover a part of the page.
It does not anymore.
It does not cover up the page anymore.
I'll show you what this looks like.
So here's what it looks like on mobile.
It does not cover the page up on mobile either.
So if you've seen old tutorials for cover photos,
don't put the face blocking it.
So this is what my page looks like on mobile,
and the nice thing about this,
it encourages people if they want to see my website,
or YouTube channel to then click on the photo itself,
to read more about it.
So on mobile,
I've optimized it to focus on the center.
So this page is designed to put these key elements
in the middle.
So even on a mobile device,
they're clearly recognizable.
So you might ask,
okay what did you do here,
what are you doing with this?
I talked with what is called a YouTube expert
at YouTube headquarters in California
about my YouTube channel.
They recommended on YouTube,
I use the cover photo to tell people
when I'm going to be live.
I've told you over and over again the importance of
live streaming for doing exceptional Facebook marketing,
therefore it makes sense to tell people who visit my page
immediately when I'm live.
If I'm doing all these live streams,
I've got a schedule now when I'm live
and therefore the main thing I want to communicate
with my title cover photo here is when I'm live.
So if someone comes to my page for the first time,
and is interested in seeing me live,
then they've got dates and times and events,
in a really simple format.
So they can immediately understand where I'm live.
Oh okay he's live on League of Legends Monday at 6 PM
PlayStation on Wednesday at 6 PM,
and Xbox on Saturday.
These are things then as you see as my global audience,
I want to communicate these things in a simple format,
that makes a clear communication of what I'm doing.
So this took a lot of thinking essentially for me
to kind of figure out how I wanted to do this.
So this is the best I've come up with.
To use as many symbols and graphics as possible,
to use the least amount of text possible
to communicate this.
And I originally designed it in a different format.
What I did seeing how the mobile part
cuts off the far right and far left of the thumbnail,
I put my daily tutorial videos over here on the far right,
so if you're on mobile,
you won't see that,
you just see my live streaming schedule,
unless you click on it and then you'll be able to see it.
And then I've got my time zone listed over here.
So people should see with the little,
they should be motivated to click
and then this shows my time zone.
So I'm in Florida.
If you're from the US or if you're from Florida
or many other places in the world
you might recognize this is Florida,
and you might recognize this time here,
as my GMT or UTC time zone.
So anywhere in the world you should be able to
figure out relative to where I am,
what time I will be live in your time zone.
So for example I think in London it is zero is where,
I think it's Greenwich Meridian time,
is centered at.
So if you see this and you're in London,
you see this -5 here,
you should be able to calculate okay he's gonna be live
at 11 PM my time on Wednesday and Monday,
and then he'll be live at six my time on Saturday.
And he's doing these new tutorials every day.
So I've got this up here,
these are tools to communicate when I'm live.
Think about watching a TV show,
would you watch a TV show like a football game or something
if you didn't know what time it was going to be on?
That'd make it difficult.
So if you're not live streaming,
the covers a good place to give people
in as simple terms as possible
an expectation of what they should be getting
in terms of value out of your page.
So one of the big values of my Facebook page,
are my live streams.
My live streams are some of the primary value I give.
And that's why all these people are visiting my page.
People are watching these live streams I'm doing.
And even if people aren't interested
in the games I'm playing,
You'll see the comments,
a bunch of people just come by to say hi.
They just say hi Jerry,
how are you doing today?
What are you up to?
And they watch for a little bit just to say hi with me,
it's kind of like stopping in,
see how I'm doing and then head out.
So if you're live streaming,
I think this is a good format.
If you're not live streaming,
use this space,
I think to give people an idea of what to expect.
What is your page going to do for them?
And try and do it as much as possible,
and as little as possible in text.
Now what I've also done,
I realize there will be some people
who want to go to my website,
or maybe view on YouTube,
I want to have that available for them.
Now I've done a nice thing on mobile here,
I didn't do this on purpose
it just came out like this and I like it.
And now I'm rationalizing it after the fact.
It has a dot com down here
so you can see if people want to see my website,
they can actually see it here.
They should be motivated then to click on the cover photo
and look and see what my website is.
So I've got a little teaser on here for my website,
and then when you look at the full folder,
you can see my website and YouTube channel.
So if you saw a Facebook ad but you don't usually
like watching videos on Facebook,
you might see I have a website
and a YouTube channel to go to on here as well.
So this allows my cover photo to communicate
in as few words as possible
all the relevant things that I want you to know.
I want you to know when I'm live,
so you can come interact with me,
even if you don't care about the game you can come say hi.
I want you to know I'm making daily tutorial videos,
that I hope provide the equivalent of a diploma for free.
I want you to know where I'm from.
I live in Florida and where my time zone is
relative to yours,
I want you to know about my website and YouTube channel.
So in my cover I've got everything
I want you to know upfront in the cover.
Now the next part of this you might ask,
how do I actually design it?
Why have you been putting that resources banner
up there the whole time?
When you use my resources page,
it shows you what I've done,
what I've used to design this cover image.
So I'll show you how I've designed this cover image,
so that you can make something similar to this,
easily yourself without having to hire anyone.
In this video I'm going to show you
what I used to do a cover photo
in terms of graphic design for my Facebook page.
I am really happy I found Canva.com,
it's made it really easy to do a cover photo now.
It's so much simpler than what I did before,
it's totally free to use,
unless you want to add some stock photos
like I've done and then they're just a dollar apiece.
It's so simple,
then you know you've got your copyright.
So you can find everything I use in my business
I try and keep this updated.
You can see my business system I've got here on Patreon.
My website host,
which I think I've made a total of like $50
for putting this up there.
So my primary value of this is to be useful,
and then if it makes little bit of money great.
So I've got my WordPress theme,
I got Wirecast,
I used Camtasia for screen capture tutorials,
and then I've got this little graphic design tab right here.
And Canva doesn't have any affiliate program,
so I don't make any money for telling you this.
This is strictly up here to help you
have an easier time than I did
learning how to make good cover photos.
So what I use is Canva.com to quickly do my own design.
I've got the current cover photo size right here,
328 wide by 315 pixels high.
And I've got the same thing up for YouTube.
So what you do you click try Canva,
and then you'll go over here
and you'll see my previous design.
So the nice thing is,
on Canva you've got,
they already have a ready-made Facebook cover
you can see right up here in the middle,
it's got a ready-made Facebook cover.
I can literally just click on this and then get started.
Canva still has the old profile here in the old format.
It doesn't use this format anymore,
so what I recommend use the custom dimensions,
what 28 by whatever it is on here,
You use the these custom dimensions
and then you click design and now you have a full screen.
And this is automatically in the right size then.
So if you want to add text to this,
then you just go down to text,
you click add heading
and then you can say whatever you want to in here,
then you can move it around,
you can adjust the font size,
make it really small or you can make it really huge.
And move it around how ever you want to.
Then you can change the color that easily there.
so I've got that done and all this is free,
unless you need a stock photo.
If you've got your own photos,
you can hit upload.
So you can see these beautiful pictures of my face on here.
I can then I've already uploaded these
so I throw this picture on my face on here,
and there we go.
That's not the cover I'm going to use
but you can see how easy it is to put these things together.
Canva then has these purple lines,
that it uses to try and line things up for you.
So it tries to match up for here,
it centers Hi on my eyebrows,
you can use the purple lines to dead center it on the page,
and then if you lose it like that,
you can go to arrange and push it back in there.
So that puts it behind.
So I've got all these different images I've used,
I can upload if I prefer to use this one,
I can use that on it.
You can take different logos if you want.
I recommend sticking to things
you're very comfortable with on copyright,
just for your own peace of mind if anything.
So what I've got is all these different things
I can use on here,
and in addition to this,
what's really nice about Canva,
Canva then you can search.
So I didn't have anything that I was able to use on Canva,
to get these.
So I'll show you the actual cover photo I used here.
So this is the actual cover photo I used.
I put text in over here,
I took the League of Legends logo
because I couldn't find anything on Canva,
and then what I did for the rest of these,
I typed in up here for example Florida.
I searched for Florida,
and then I clicked on this to bring over this Florida photo,
and then I shrunk it down to the size I wanted,
and moved it over into position.
Same thing on these days of the week.
I then searched for Monday,
I saw this on Monday calendar icon come up,
I put this in for Monday then,
and then I did the same thing I searched for Wednesday,
and I took the same thing from Wednesday over here.
I searched for Saturday and took the Saturday,
and then I went through on the brand,
so after I went and found this over here,
then I clicked on this ID,
and this takes you to the actual here.
Now it shows you the pricing,
so using this is a dollar.
And then if you just want to view
by this particular publisher,
you can search for brand and then calendar for example,
and then this one publisher has all these different things
in the same format then.
So if you like the way this looks
but you only are doing once a month,
you can find an exact calendar day to put on here.
And what I wanted is this image
so it was hard to find that directly.
But what I did I just browsed through here
until I found this little icon,
put it on there so now that's in the same format
as the others to communicate something different.
So I did the same thing on that,
I went all the way through here
and then I searched for Xbox over here
and I grabbed the Xbox symbol that you see right here.
I put that over there.
I searched for PlayStation and grabbed the PlayStation
symbol here and stuck that there.
And then I searched for something like diploma,
and grabbed the diploma that I found right here
and put that over there.
And then I searched for minus five or something like that,
and I found a minus five graphic
that I used in here for the time zone.
So that's how I built this entire cover,
and then when I did I put all these pieces of text in here,
and I used the purple lines to line them up
so that they're lined up pretty well.
this isn't absolutely perfectly graphic design.
I'm sure a full-time graphic designer
could critique one thing after another
that I could do better.
it works well and it didn't take me very long to make.
Now all I do to get it,
I then put the name in and I go over here to click Download.
And it's cool if you're making a presentation,
you can use transparent background which is really nice.
I click download,
and then it charged me like five or $10
for all these stock images I used,
but then I've got the right to use those,
so I don't have to worry about copyright,
I know where I can edit these.
So if I need to go back and do different days of the week
in the future,
I just come back to this.
I could switch times,
I can switch these out.
Now you have to pay to use them again,
it's only for 24 hours that you can edit it.
But it's a really cheap and simple way.
Now you don't have to use these,
you can do whatever you want.
I recommend if you want to have confidence
you have the copyright all figured out and everything,
use the stock images and pay for them.
You can always just upload all of your own images in here
and if anything goes wrong
you can deal with the consequences.
So you can do all of this for free on Canva,
or you can pay for the stock images the way I did.
So I've used Canva then to make this cover photo on my page.
And then one little trick I did with it too,
I went through and edited the cover photo here,
because if you click on the cover photo on,
then you're likely to see all the text
I've written next to it.
So if you click on it,
then I want people to see what I mean in writing.
So if someone does get interested enough to click on this,
I want them actually know,
oh okay what does he mean by all these symbols on here.
Oh he means he has free tutorial videos everyday on YouTube.
He's up on Twitch and Beam also okay.
Oh and his League of Legends streams
are live from six PM Eastern and nine PM.
Okay that's what he means by this this right here.
And then this is how I play with him.
So after putting the new cover photo up,
I then edited the cover photo,
so it's got all the information
that I want people to see on it.
So when someone clicks either on mobile or desktop,
they see the full photo.
They see all the text that goes with it.
So this to me is the most effective way
to do the cover photo on Facebook.
In terms of communicating what you have to say.
Doing it in a fairly concise
and symbolic format for people anywhere in the world.
And then getting the people who are interested
in what they see to click on it
and then read more in details.
So you obviously can customize this
any kind of way you want to.
And then I'm just did this cover photo today
and knowing I was going to teach this,
I had a picture of my daughter up and was essentially
not doing anything to communicate
the value of my page or my schedule.
So I was just motivated to change and update this today,
to teach this class.
So I hope this class has provided something useful for you,
in the same regards today.
I would love to know about it.
Whatever you've learned from this video,
would you please share it with me.
To help me see how you've used this video today.
Thank you very much for finishing this video.
I'm amazed you've watched so much of this video
because there were probably thousands if not
50 or hundred thousand other people watching along with you.
Over time obviously not from the first day,
but over the year or so this has been watched.
There's so many people who watched it before you
who just dropped off before they made it to this point.
I'm honored you've spent so much time with me.
What I'm trying to do is create tutorial videos
like this for you on a daily basis.
So that you can get a complete professional education
with me for free online.
You never have to buy anymore of my products,
or anymore of my courses.
I've transitioned from locking up
everything I do behind money,
to just giving everything away for free Wikipedia style.
And the main place I do this is on my YouTube channel.
To me that's the easiest place
to access all these things I create.
So if you're watching this on YouTube,
would you please subscribe on YouTube.
Would you help me reach 250,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Because then I'll be able to more effectively
reach you with the new tutorials I make.
Now you might be wondering,
how do you make any money doing things like this?
You're just giving away everything you know for free.
How do you charge if you're not putting things
into paid products anymore?
Well I still do have some books on Amazon
and I still have some books on Audible,
these make a few hundred dollars a month.
So not exactly enough to sustain a business.
On my website I've got courses that I'm still selling,
but again these I am switching to a model
where I completely do everything for free.
So I'm not making any new courses
and when I hit enough on Patreon,
which I would say would be about $10,000 a month,
I actually will not allow people
to buy anymore of my courses on my website.
If I'm selling them for someone else I will.
But like this course,
I have a Facebook ads and marketing course on my website,
why would you need to get this?
You just got a newer version of it.
So I'm transitioning away from paying,
having you pay anything.
I don't ever want to have to ask you
to buy another product from me again.
But I still do need to make money,
enough to have my business survive online.
So I'm taking a leap of faith here with you,
I'm acting as if I have the money I need to do this.
Right now I'll go out of business
if things stay the way they are.
I'm taking a big leap of faith with you
that me doing the right thing,
just giving you everything I know for free,
that you will then give back however you're able to.
The most effective way for you to give back,
is to become a patron using this orange button
The link you see up on top.
You essentially and I'll ask you,
would you please use this,
to essentially hire me to make more videos
like this for you each month.
Instead of me relentlessly selling you book after book.
I have turned out 30 plus courses
depending on how you count things.
I've been in more than 70 online courses.
I've made 10 plus audio books,
maybe it's five,
I don't know I've made a bunch of audio books
in a relatively short time.
I have 12 plus books on Amazon.
I crank out things,
a ton of things and I literally end up having to sell things
to you every week as I make new courses.
So what I'm hoping to do,
never have to sell you anything again.
Hire me to work for you.
As little as a dollar a month is fantastically helpful.
If you give more than that,
there's ways you will get rewarded
for giving more than that.
Based on how much you are contributing.
So what I'm hoping to do,
is just essentially get crowd hired.
By right now I'm grateful I'm getting $1098 a month already,
and I just started putting my whole business into this
What I'm hoping to do is effectively get crowd hired,
to just do everything for free.
No more products.
And then if for every 999 people who watch it for free
and don't give anything,
if you are the one person out of a thousand,
that goes through and becomes a patron,
then you'll enable me to continue giving
to all the other people,
who either aren't available,
they can't pay because they have no money,
or they can't pay because
they can't get the money they have.
Often in another country,
they can't even get their money
in a way they can spend it online,
at least to buy my courses and products,
or to buy other products and courses.
Or they've been programmed
that you can't spend money in order to learn things.
So when you help out with this,
you're helping a lot of other people who are probably
in a position to greatly benefit from this.
So I really appreciate your help with this.
I was going to just start doing this
once I hit 10,000 a month,
but I realized I'm going to act as if I've already
hit 10,000 a month and just everything I knew,
completely for free.
I did this last year in my Facebook course,
and while 40 or so thousand people
saw all the things in the course,
I'd rather give it to you for free
and have a chance at hundreds of thousands of people
to see this instead of people
paying me to make things online.
Now I'll show you about the rewards.
You may be really interested in the actual rewards.
So what you see,
is when you become a patron,
it'll give you a chance to choose a reward.
So I'll click on this button,
and show you what it looks like here.
What it does,
it will then give you these reward options here,
and then what you want to go down
and do is edit your reward.
So I'll show you the rewards you can get on the right side.
So if you pledge $10 or more a month,
which I'm grateful 10 people of already signed up
within the last three weeks at this level,
I'll give you all the paid courses I've created for free.
So all these on my website
and I'm charging nine dollars each,
I'll just give you all of them for free.
Now there maybe one or two missing,
that are someone else's courses.
Like if I collaborated with a third-party
to sell their course on my website,
I'm not sure.
In all cases that they'll agree that
I can let you have it for free on Patreon too,
I'll give you as many as I can.
All of the ones I'm the primary instructor.
All of the ones I paid to create,
like this hacking course I paid to create this.
Paid to create this Wireshark course.
So you get 30 plus courses for free immediately.
For $10 a month.
Now the rewards continue to get I think more cool.
If you give 25 or more a month,
I will personally thank you in at least one video.
So for this video I'm thanking Michael Garrard.
Who signed up for $25 or more a month,
Michael has done work with me online.
Michael's bought a bunch of my Udemy courses.
I'm honored Michael was the first supporter
at the $25 shout out option,
so Michael Garrard thank you very much
for being a patron today.
At the $50 or more per month
and all of these are subject to change.
You may see this and it may be completely different
by the time you see it
based on what the people before you have done.
Whatever you see on the Patreon page itself is valid today.
If you get $50 or more,
I will make a new video for you specifically every month,
now nothing nasty of course.
I will make a new video based on what you want me to do.
If you say Jerry I want you to make a video
on Facebook lead ads.
Why have you not made one of those yet?
$50 or more a month,
send me a message on Patreon,
tell me what you want me to make and I'll make it.
I'm grateful to Jordan Arsenault,
who is the first to pledge at the $50 more a month level.
Jordan was a member of my mastermind group.
One of the first few members of it,
and I've talked with him and worked with him.
I talk with him every week now.
We've helped each other a lot in our online business.
A new thing I'm doing,
I just started this a day or two ago.
After many people have requested I make a mastermind,
I'm starting a new online business mastermind.
One of the most helpful things I've found
is to talk with people every week,
over and over again,
and to see all the things we go through in our business.
It helps to get perspective.
It helps really well for learning.
So I'm doing an online business mastermind.
I just started this.
The price goes up $25 for each new mastermind member.
So at the time I'm recording this,
I've hardly told anyone about it yet.
It's very much an early release.
By the time you see it the cost to join it,
it will be higher $25 for each person who's joined.
Or if no one joins I might just cut that one out entirely.
Most of the things I do fail,
it's just the things I do well
I keep doing over and over again.
So the cost per month will be based on
how many members are in the mastermind.
So I'm rewarding people who join early.
I'm doing one call every month with mastermind members.
I will try to do them at each time,
based on the exact members.
And my availability.
So if there's just one member,
we'll probably have the call at the same time every week,
and I'll meet that member online.
If there's two,
three, five, ten,
I'll try and get with everyone individually,
find one meeting time that works the most for each member,
and try and coordinate those together as much as possible
and then I'll make the meetings every week
at different times based on that.
So one meeting maybe at three PM my time one week,
might be at six PM another,
might be at nine in the morning the next week.
To try and give everyone a chance to participate.
And then everyone in the group
will be able to network together also.
I've found that networking online
is the most valuable part of my business.
Most of these courses you see,
a lot of the sales you're here with me
because I've networked with other people
to make things that I could never have created on my own,
and many of the things I've collaborated on
have been my best videos.
Just look on YouTube.
My two and a half million view video here,
I collaborated with Herman.
My 500,000 view video here I collaborated with Hector.
On this adwares tutorial I actually did this one solo.
And then on this Linux tutorial I collaborated with Herman.
On this with Herman,
this with Herman and then these two Facebook ones by myself.
So the mastermind I'm excited about.
If you prefer one-on-one,
give the monthly call a try.
And then if you want service,
if you want me to help you.
If you want my company to help you with your Facebook,
or Google ad campaigns,
get the reward for the ad campaign service.
This will continue to go up as more people request service.
And then if you really want to work,
and do everything you can with me,
I've got a one partner spot available
for someone that I would plan to work and plan what I do
around promoting you naturally in everything I do.
So I'm thinking if you're already on my resources page,
as a company that I'm already using,
I'm thinking that's the best opportunity to be a partner,
but I have an open mind.
So when you click become a patron today,
you'll be able to help with this.
If you buy anything on my website,
if you use any of the affiliate links,
if you want to schedule a one-on-one call,
if you want to listen to any of the books on Audible,
if you want to listen to my podcast,
totally for free making new episodes every week,
all of these things are what you can do to help me.
And I've made this video on a leap of faith here with you
that when I tell you about all these things,
if you're able and willing,
you'll go forward and help me.
And if not that's okay,
then I've set it up there's probably someone else who will.
So thank you very much today for watching this,
I hope this has been a good use of your time.
If you've enjoyed this,
would you please share this with someone else
who might be trying to learn the same thing as you are
and not realize this video is out there
describing all of these things for free.
Thank you and have a great day today.
