Why Bloggers Should Consider Facebook Advertising

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

As you know my primary marketing method is blogging.  I love to write and engage and connect with people through my writing, I do a lot of social marketing to syndicate my content and I have been able to build a very targeted list and community of bloggers in a short space of time.

But there comes a time in every business when you have to spread your marketing wings if you want to reach wider audiences, if you want to maximise and leverage what you have created so far.

Over the last few months I have been working on widening my marketing methods though Facebook ads and the results have been fantastic and following testing and tweaking incredibly cost effective! (like $0.11 a lead!)

That is because I am able to target specific people in specific a specific niche with particular likes and interests.  And I am excited about connecting and working with a lot more bloggers because of Facebook Ads

Think about it, where else do you have access to over 1.23 BILLION potential customers, with approximately 800 MILLION actively logging in each day?

Facebook Ads are different than other forms of online advertising because people go there to look at photos, interact with their friends/family, post status updates, They don’t necessarily go on Facebook to purchase products or service.


ads  are now part and parcel of the everyday activity you see on Facebook, so advertising is now considered the norm.

One particular method I have been using is Newsfeed ads.  These aren’t the “Facebook Ads” you see on the right hand side of Facebook but that ones that show up in your normal news feed.  You might have seen a few that I have done in the lead up to the evergreen blog post challenge.

Facebook Newsfeed Ads can:

  • Generate you highly targeted leads for your specific blog niche.
  • Drive traffic to any website / capture page
  • Have massive advantages over side bar ads.
  • Be used to promote affiliate products and services relevant to your niche
  • Increase your Facebook edge rank and organic Facebook engagement and visibility.
  • Re-target ads to your existing email lists!
  • Be used in conjunction with Facebook Graph search abilities.
  • Utilise captivating images to engage your target audience.
  • Get more people to attend your events and live webinars.


Right now you can access all of these methods by picking up a copy of News Feeds Ads.

    I have tried a few Facebook ads Beth with no success. Quite a lot were not approved and the ones that were approved I didn’t get any results so not sure where I am going wrong !! Will have another go shortly and see what happens this time. Thanks for all the advice.

      Hi Merle,

      It’s a bit trail and error in the beginning and it can be frustrating as there is obviously costs involved so people sometimes give up before they get their break through. testing and tweaking is key as are good images and a congruent landing page.

      Beth :)

    I’ve done a couple in the past for a business I was involved in with ok success. I have never thought about it for the blog or even my podcast. That’s a really great idea!

    Thanks Beth!

    This is interesting, I had thought about it but I was a little bit skeptical to do it. I might have to consider this in the future. I will subscribe to your blog to get more helpful tips. Thank you!

    Hi Beth, I found you on Twitter. I have tried FB advertising and I achieved something like £0.20 or even less per click, so seems like a good idea, but I didn’t see a single click from FB on my Google Analytics, so out of approximately 70-80 people who supposedly clicked on my ad, nobody was showing on GA, why? If I believed that things were working like FB reports, then FB is brilliant, but I don’t understand what’s going on, so I didn’t carry on with the campaign.
    Any ideas anyone?

      Hey Min,

      That’s a great point. Where were you directing people? Was it to capture page, a page on your blog? And what was your aim of the FB Ads?

      Not sure why it wouldn’t have been showing up in GA, but I have used FB ads and I have had a lot of great results, all though it can take a bit of testing and tweaking in the beginning.
