Advertise On Facebook For Free...But Hurry Before The Offer Goes Pfffft!

Yep, you read that headline right. You can advertise for free using the world's largest social networking site, Facebook.

A bit on Facebook advertising
For those still new on social network advertising (like me), you can post ads targeted to Facebook members using the network's database of 400 Million members (including mine and yours if you have an account). What makes this medium so powerful in my view is that you can choose both demographics (age, sex, location, educational level, job description, etc.) as well as psychographics (lifestyles, likes, dislikes, etc.) and even their membership in the different groups.

I have launched my first ever ad with Facebook the other day and I have no complaints so far with the results. I got 15 clicks in just 2 days, which is not bad given given that I had only 20,000 impressions (I chose the CPM per thousand of impressions instead of pay per click). Now that may seem too low for you but if you used a budget of only get this ---- $1.30/ that's a very high return as I am promoting the site builder I wrote about - yes, I am a believer now, so much so that I signed up as an affiliate. ( I will post more on the progress of my site using the Ezprofitresults system)

Btw, here's what my ad looked like:

Realtors and real estate agents who want to launch targeted ads should try this and evaluate if it is worth it.

Free stuff
Ok so here's the free stuff. Occasionally, Facebook and its partner sponsors give out free advertisement coupons / codes to the public as part of their promotions. Well, it so happened I stumbled on this blog: last night and it gave away a $50 ad coupon for Facebook. So I tried the code and you know worked!! I now have an extra $50 ad credits I can use to promote my stuff and properties.

Since I am so happy with my find, I am paying it forward...the free stuff and hope all of you benefit from it the same way as I did.

So here's the code:           FB-SES-NY

Remember you need to create your Facebook advertisement first and put in your credit card details (you will be deduct something like a $1.00 for registration and space purposes) before you can activate your ad and use the promo code.

Don't worry, if you redeem the promo code for your ad placement, Facebook will not deduct it from your credit card (you may use a debit card as well as long as the issuers are Visa, Mastercard, Discovery or American Express).

Please do give it try and let me know the results. The advert code does have an expiry (mine is about 60 days) and you can only use that to place ads in Facebook.

Happy Selling!!
