There are three major keys to success with your Facebook Ads:
Today, I’m going to focus on writing copy that converts, but I want to quickly mention graphics and targeting because they are so important to getting the results that you’re looking for in your campaign: leads and sales!
Facebook Ads Graphics
While the copy is what will draw your customers in, the secret is capturing their attention with your Facebook Ad design. Then they will scroll up to see your copy and click through (if they haven’t already because of your ad design).
If you’re good with graphics, you can whip something like this up in Photoshop in just about 10 minutes. If not, that’s ok.
One of my favorite non-Photoshop tools is Canva. They even have a pre-made layout the optimal size of your Facebook Ad. If you’re really not good at design or don’t have the time to make something like this then find a designer to do it for you or use one of these done-for-you templates from my shop here. These are all easily editable on Canva – and you won’t have to pay a designer every time you want to advertise a new offer.

Facebook Ad Targeting
No matter how amazing your graphic and your copy, if you don’t nail down your Facebook Ads targeting, you’ll be paying more for your leads than you should be – which will reduce profits and return on the campaign.
Your targeting will include both warm and cold audiences – i.e. people who are familiar with you already and new prospective customers.
I’m working on an Ad Targeting Workbook that’s similar to my Welcome Series Email Planner workbook that will help you get super clear on the Facebook Audiences to target with your ads.
Now let’s chat about your copy! I’ve created a workbook for you to follow along with these 3 techniques that you can rinse and repeat for every Facebook Ad campaign you run.
