    2. Tell a story: Short self-presentation of you + the problem you can handle: Who are you? What is the problem? Why is it important to deal with the problem right now?

2.2 Create Social Business Pages and Business Review Portals Profiles

Social Business Portals

Business Review Portals / Local Citations for Germany

2.2 Create Social Media Pages / Groups

2.1 Tracking by Social Media

2.2 Retargeting

  • You can configure the Social Media ad manager for “Retargeting”: All visitors of your pages, which are shipped with a Pixel ID - and if properly implemented, who did not buy -, will see the social media again and again.

2.4 Create a Lookalike Audience ( LAL )

  • If you got 100 datasets by your Social Media advertising ( = 100 visitors of your landing page,.. ), the Social Media company ( e.g. Facebook ) will create a “profile of a lookalike audience”, i.e. a customer avantar. This avantar has special attributes, e.g. gender, age / age range, income,...

  • Create a new Social Media ad, but this time select as target audience the Lookalike Audience ( LAL ) of your first ad.
  • By that you can blow up an advertising campaign which reached 100 customers to 10.000 or even 100.000 customers who are similar to the 100.

2.X Self-created Tracking for poor People

  • Offer a free product on your landing page. The customer fills a formular and names his/her E-Mail address.
  • By that you know who was visiting your landing page and even passed the CallToAction.

2.3 Have a blog

  • Task: Have a blog

2.4 Have an E-Book

  • Task: have an E-Book.

2.5 Facebook Ads

Facebook Ad Rules

  • If you do Facebook ads, you must do a calculation, and set a rule.
  • Example:
    • Product price = 100 EUR.
    • Profit = 50 EUR.
    • You invest 10.000 EUR/d for Facebook advertising.
  • So you should setup the rule, to continue the Facebook advertising campaign, until the ads cost less than your profit. If the ad costs are equal (... larger ) that the profit, then by the Facebook rule, the Facebook advertising campaign will be stopped.
  • Set costs per result ( German: “Kosten pro Ergebnis” ) to 50 EUR. Result is a sales. Facebook will just activate advertising, if the costs per result are less than 50 EUR, i.e. as long as you make profit. If the costs per result exceed 50 EUR, the advertising campaign is stopped for a day. Next day the costs per result are checked again by Facebook.

No overlapping of target groups

  • Avoid overlapping of target groups :-), as you would pay double price :-(.

Facebook Campaign Budget Optimization

  • Select 3 groups for Facebook ad campaigns.
    1. Cold.
    2. Fans.
    3. Lookalike Audience.
  • Create ad with photo / picture and another ad with video, for each groups. As nobody can tell you if photo or video makes better sales.
  • Usually you invest 33% of the ad buget for each group.
  • By Facebook Campaign Budget Optimization, facebook uses AI to select the optimal group and ad ( photo or video ) to make the most of your ad budget.

Facebook Relevance Score

  • If you get likes & comments for your Facebook ad, Facebook rewards you.
  • If there are no likes & comments, the Facebook ads get more expensive :-(.
Create an interactive Sales Post, with high Relevance Score
  • Create a Sales Post on your Facebook fan page.
  • By the Facebook advertising manager, select “interaction”.
  • Germans are usually not interacting with Facebook ads, i.e. don´t give like, nor do they comment ads.
  • Trick.
    1. Create a Facebook ad,
      • But select 2 days * 10 EUR, with target in India. You will get many likes, e.g. 1000 likes. By that you get a Relevance Score of 10 for your post.
    2. Create a new Facebook ad, but for your target audience. You get more from Facebook, as the Relevance Score for your post is high.

Optimal Facebook Budget Plan: 25-3 Rule

  • Example: You have a Facebook ad budget of 100 EUR.
  • If a Facebook ad works, increase the budget all 3 days by 25%, not 1000 EUR next day.

Multi-use of contents

  • Task: Multi-use of contents.
