7 Fresh Facebook Ads Ideas That Will Work For Your Online Business

7 Fresh Facebook Ads Ideas That Will Work For Your Online Business

This week on The Business Lounge we released the final modules for our Smart Facebook Ads course, and I’ve been reviewing ad copy and creatives for our members.

output_XAWT1Z

So I thought I would share some of the examples I’ve been using to teach them how to craft compelling Facebook Ads for their online businesses with style.

It’s interesting because I remember when I first started running Facebook Ads in 2012, I had NO idea what to create that would entice our audience.

And that seems to be one of the biggest stopping points for creative entrepreneurs these days.

Four Elements Of An Effective Facebook Ad Creative

So before we dig in, let’s talk about the four elements of an effective ad creative.

  • The Avatar: You need to know who you are speaking to before you ever take a stab at crafting a marketing message they are going to resonate with. What are their pain points and how are you going to solve them?
  • The Hook: This is your value proposition. You need to explain the benefits clearly and concisely. Why should they care about YOUR ad when they can scroll a bit further to see what cousin Mindy is up to?
  • The Copy: This is your messaging, and it’s comprised of your tone and the types of words you use to communicate your value proposition. Will your audience relate to your messaging? Will it stand out? *Make sure you include a clear CTA in your copy.

blog-ads-5

  • The Visuals: Whether you create graphics, gifs, videos, slideshows, etc. it’s important that they resonate with your audience and stand out (but only to them). Are your visuals attractive? Will they catch your ideal client’s eye?

 

7 Fresh Facebook Ads Ideas For Your Online Business

Here are 7 of my favorite ad ideas.

I organized them into three, main categories so you can model these proven strategies for your own Facebook Ads campaigns.

Lead Magnet Ideas

#1: I love this ad from Digital Marketer because it’s pure value.

digitalmarketer-timeline

Their opening line both evokes curiosity while stating the benefits of their lead magnet.

And I love how they break down each benefit of downloading their lead magnet in the ad copy itself. It’s a simple, yet super effective strategy.

 

#2: You’ll find a very similar copy format from Zack Spuckler. Wanna know why?

Because leading with benefits works. 

Especially if you are targeting folks who have never heard of you before (a cold audience).

heart-soul-hustle-timeline

But what I want you to pay attention to is the image.

The ad is graphic has three strategic elements that are sure to stop the scroll in the news feed (it did for me).

#1. By including an image of the lead magnet, it becomes visually tangible to the viewer. It’s no longer just a PDF; it’s a workbook and that increases the perceived value of the lead magnet immediately.

#2: A clear and colorful headline grabs attention and the call to action tells the user exactly what to do next (whether they read the entire copy of the ad or skim over it). 

#3: Zach’s photo positions him as an influencer. He’s clearly giving a talk which immediately tells you he’s someone other’s listen to. Awesome visual positioning.

 

Webinar Registration Ideas

 

#3: This ad from Kimra Luna speaks to her audience in a way that represents her brand as a whole. that is uniquely her.

She’s uniquely her all around and it works like gang-busters.

facebook-1

If you’ve run value-add Facebook ads in the past, you know that a great indicator that you have winning ad is that folks start tagging their friends in it.

Kimra knows this and she encourages it openly. Smart gal.

 

#4: Rusell Brunson is always innovating with cool strategies.

Who says you can only use conversions or website click objectives to run profitable ads?

russell-brunson-timeline

Facebook live videos are incredibly effective (especially if they have emoticons… kidding) and it’s a great idea to run popular Facebook live video replays as ads.

 

#5: Lewis Howes produces some amazing videos.

Why not use them to run ads to his webinar workshop?

Not only is his ad copy leading with clear benefits, his video ad is really engaging and definitely speaks to his target audience’s desires.

 

Product Sales Ideas

 

#6: Okay, so far these ads are great examples of value-first content, but what if you are selling a product directly to your (hopefully) warm audience?

Simple Green Smoothies always creates gorgeous images that draw their audience in.

simple-green-smoothies-timeline

Plus, this carousel ad is the perfect format to showcase their delicious 7-Day Reset program.

 

#7: Rick Mulready’s retargeting ad leads with a clear testimonial and that’s a phenomenal strategy.

Social proof is gold to any business, so give this strategy a try for your own advertising campaigns.

Blog: How To Create A Social Promotion Plan For Your Blog

If you’ve ever dug through your analytics only to find out 4 of your Instagram follower are actually coming over to your site and reading your content, you’re not alone.

I’ve been there and I get how frustrating it can be to work REALLY hard on a gangsta’ piece of content for your blog and then get… crickets.

So in this #KimTV episode, I’m going to show you exactly how to create a winning blog promotion plan to send more traffic from social media to your content.

BONUS: We created this dope Blog Promotion Plan Worksheet to help put what you learn into action.

Diggin’ Into The Strategy

Your Blog Promotion Plan

So let’s break down this blog promotion plan into the specific social networks you are using to get your message out there.

Remember, you don’t need to use all of them, okay?

Just focus on the ones that either show the most promise or are moving the needle forward in your business.

Facebook

  • On Day One: Share a link post.
  • On Day Three: Go live on Facebook to summarize the key points you covered in your blog post. 

Or, simply record a video and upload it to Facebook natively (meaning don’t share it from another channel, upload it directly to your page).

Make sure to add a link back to your blog post and viola!

  • On Day Ten: Turn a key point you covered in your blog post into an image or ”quick tip”. 
  • Day Fourteen: Create some slides in Canva and post a slideshow on Facebook. 

Make sure to always include a link back to your blog post.

And from there, keep using this system to repurpose and recycle your content.

blog-ads-1

Twitter

  • Day One: Tweet out a link.
  • Day One (3 hours later): Change the caption and tweet out another link.
  • Day Three: Share a clip of the video you created on the FB live or pre-recorded.
  • Day Seven: Create a Twitter Moment and start collecting all the tweets related to your blog posts.
  • Day Ten: Share another link but this time include an image.

Instagram

  • Day One: Post an image with a text overlay of your blog title and link your blog post in your bio link. **Quick Tip: I love using Later because it manages Instagram links really effectively.
  • Day Three: Post an Instagram story about your blog, preferably in a video format to introduce the blog post content to your audience in an interactive way. Include a call to action at the end.
  • Day Seven: Post a clip of the video you posted on Facebook and repurpose it.
  • Day Ten: Share the same ”quick tip” image you created for Facebook.

Pinterest

  • Day One: Design beautiful image, add a link and pit it to your boards.
  • Day Three: Change the caption of the pin and the image and pin it up to your board.
  • Day Ten: Pin a link to your video.

YouTube

On day one…

  • Upload your video.
  • Make sure you add a link back to your blog post in the description.
  • Add YouTube cards to your video with the pertinent links to your blog/website.

How To Come Up With 25 Blog Post Ideas In 20 Minutes Or Less

How To Come Up With 25 Blog Post Ideas In 20 Minutes Or Less

There’s nothing more frustrating than staring at a blinking cursor for hours on end, trying to figure out what to blog about next…

I think that as bloggers there’s nothing we dread more than running out of post ideas (or wasting time trying to write the perfect post).

The other day I was talking to a blogger friend, and when I asked how her blog was going she said, ”well, I’m not doing it anymore… I ran out of ideas to blog about.”

What?! No. No. No.

Running out of blog post ideas is a simple problem to fix and while I get how frustrating it can be, there are tons of ways to avoid the whole ”I ran out of ideas” scenario to begin with.

So this week we’re on a mission to help you come up with more blog post ideas than you know what to do with, quickly.

 

blog-ads-1

 

Getting Into The Strategy

Let’s break things down into three, super simple steps.

 

Step #1: Outline 5 Broad Topics You Want To Cover

So let’s say you are in the fitness coach. Here are what your list of broad topics might look like:

  1. Weight Loss
  2. Diet & Nutrition
  3. Cardio
  4. Strength Training
  5. Mindset

Now that we have our broad topics outlined, it’s time to pair each broad topic with a blog type or category.

 

 

Step #2: Outline Your Blog Post Types/Categories

There are a wealth of blog types out there.

But for the purpose of this strategy, we are just going to focus on five blog post types.

Remember, you can choose whichever five post types you like but here are a few examples you can use right away.

 

How To’s

 

2

 

 

 

 

 

I would say this is one of the most popular categories or blog post types amongst bloggers these days, and it’s no surprise.

People love reading practical, step-by-step information they can use and implement right away.

So whenever you are brainstorming ”How To” post types these three questions can help guide your process:

  1. What are you learning/implementing in your own business right now?
  2. What is your audience asking about?
  3. What can you break down for your audience into a simple, step-by-step strategy?

 

Lists

 

3

 

In the last few years, lists have become insanely popular.

In fact, monster blogs like Buzzfeed use them all the time to capture their audience’s attention and get them to share their content.

 

 

Lists help curate resources, ideas and tools into scannable content your readers can quickly consume and that’s what make them such valuable blog post types.

When it’s time to brainstorm list blog post types, here are three tips that will help move the process along faster.

  1. Use Google and Pinterest to search for keywords related to your topic so you can check out what is already out there. 
  2. Go bigger if you can. Longer lists tend to get more attention and hold more value. 
  3. Don’t be afraid to update them over time as you come across new resources, ideas or tools. 

 

Case Studies

 

4

 

There’s nothing more inspiring and curiosity evoking than real life examples of other people who have accomplished the goals or desires your reader’s want to achieve or experience.

This blog type enables you to use data-driven examples, social proof from someone else’s experience or just general research theories to prove a point.

Plus, it gives you the opportunity to position your products, programs, and services in a new light and validate them without having to sell directly.

Here are three tips to brainstorm your next case study blog.

  1. Use actual data. If you can screenshot numbers, gather before & after pictures or get insider information, your reader’s will devour that stuff.
  2. Get specific. People want to learn the subtle nuances that can get them results.
  3. Make it engaging. You may be tempted to share boring stats, turn them into visuals like videos, infographics or slide decks you can embed in your post.

 

blog-ads-2

 

Resources

 

5

 

Today there is more content and information available than any other time in history, which means it’s also never been more overwhelming to find the right resources on the web.

Use this opportunity to curate the best resources from around the interwebs for your audience.

Here are three tips you can use when curating resources from around the web.

  1. If you utilize these resources, that will carry more weight with your subscribers. 
  2. Use examples of ways these resources have helped you or your reader’s in the past.
  3. If you love these resources, and any of them are paid, use this as an affiliate marketing opportunity to monetize your blog or work out an exclusive deal for you readers with the resource provider.

 

Stories

 

copy-of-blog-ads

 

Storytelling is an ancient art and in my opinion, it’s the most powerful type of content.

So if whenever you have a chance to tell a story whether it be yours or someone else’s, take it.

It will build a powerful,  intimate connection with your readers that will make your blog stand out. 😉

Here are a few tips to follow whenever you are brainstorming story ideas for your blog:

  1. Humanize the story and make it relatable. 
  2. Use it as a teachable or inspiring moment by highlighting the moral of the story.
  3. Use stories as an opportunity to encourage your reader’s and help foster a sense of community by reminding them that ”we are all in this together”.

 

blog-ads-1

Step #3: Pair your topics with your post types. 

This third step is where the magic starts to happen.

Now that you have your list of 5 broad topics you want to cover, it’s time to pair them with five topic types or categories.

Five broad topics x 5 categories = 25 shiny new blog post ideas for your blog content bank.

To make this process even easier, we designed an excellent Blog Content Bank Spreadsheet + a mini class to show you how to use it.

 >> BONUS: Download my Blog Content Bank Spreadhseet + access the mini class.

 

Over To You

So there you have it, a three-step strategy to build a solid blog content bank for your business.

Your homework is to take action and brainstorm 25 new blog topics right away.

But more importantly, it’s not a regular spell checker. Grammarly actually shows me how I can improve my writing with short grammatical suggestions that help me get better each day.  **Referral link

How To Design A Blog Strategy That Actually Makes You Money

How To Design A Blog Strategy That Actually Makes You Money

Setting up a blog back in 2012 was one of the best investment I have ever made in my business.

Ever since my blog has: 

  • Landed me a dream job working as a social media director even before I graduated college. 
  • Helped me position my brand and showcase my knowledge, which allowed me to book myself solid before I quit my 9-5. 
  • Attracted so many of my ideal clients, I had a waitlist for two years in a row. 
  • Allowed me to build an audience so I could transition my business from a service model to an infoproduct model.
  • Continues to grow my email list by 50-100 new subscribers each day. 

And it’s no wonder blogs and content marketing have been all the hype for quite a while.

They actually work. 

Content marketing costs 62% less than traditional marketing and generates about 3 times as many leads. [Source: DemandMetrics]

So if you are thinking about starting your own blog or you need a little more convincing, here’s what a blog can do for your brand.

1.Increase your authority and position your brand

This applies even more if you are a coach, a consultant, an author or just an expert in your field. Blogging allows you to showcase your knowledge and automatically increases your authority within your industry.

Which means more exposure and more clients knocking at your digital door.

 

2. Promote your content with less friction

 When you give value first, you build a goodwill with your audience, which in turn, helps you to market your brand without rubbing people the wrong way or being too pushy.

Blogging helps build anticipation, increase awareness that a specific problem exists and helps move your prospects along in the buying process.

It’s the best type of marketing because it often doesn’t even feel like marketing at all.

 

blog-ads-2

 

3. Attracts new eyeballs

People these days CRAVE content. They’re actively looking for it; they want to consume it, and they’d rather learn about a product or service via an article or a blog than through an advertisement.

And this, my friend, is your golden opportunity.

Blogging will help you reach a wider audience, and if you market it right, your blog will attract new prospects into your brand ecosystem.

Which means more leads and more sales (#boom).

 

blog-ads-1

 

 

4. Turn cold leads into warm prospects 

What are cold leads?

They are people who need your products, programs or services but have no idea your brand exists. One of the easiest ways to turn a cold lead into a prospect is by ‘’warming them up’’ to your brand via content.

It’s a strategy I’ve used for years, and practically every single business model can utilize (if the hubby and I can use it for a blue collar moving company, you can crush it with this strategy for your online brand).

But before you run off to register your domain name and set up shop on the net, let’s get your strategy down pat (and if you already own a blog, this is a great time to re-examine your strategy).

See you can’t just have a blog, put a bunch of content on it and call it a day.

You need to spend some time outlining how your blogs fit into your overall business strategy so that you can, over time, build a hub of quality content that increases your reputation, builds your audience and increases your revenue.

 

Remember, content marketing is a long-term strategy.

 

It’s not a quick-fix cash cow, but if you invest in it from the get-go, you’ll have a business asset that will eventually bring in leads and sales for your business.

 

Setting Up Your Blog Strategy

 

TBL Blogging For Business (1)

 

Get Clear On Your Purpose

Why does your blog exist? What type of audience are you looking to attract? How will you serve your audience?

It’s very important that you know why you are blogging, to begin with, and who you are trying to attract.

Remember, you need to make sure you are attracting an audience that will eventually purchase your products, programs or services.

Otherwise, you’ll be building a blog just for the sake of it (‘ain’t nobody got time for that).

 

Plan & Produce Incredible Content

Now that you have a good idea of what type of audience you are aiming to attract, it’s time to get up close and personal, baby (without being creepy).

If you get really clear on the pain points and challenges your audience is facing, you’ll have loads of sure-fire content ideas.

That is the key right there.

And it makes sense, right?

If you find out what problems your audience is facing and you can help solve them via your content, you’ll consistently create content they will love to consume.

 

 So it’s time to outline your blog topics.

Here are some other ways you can research and find amazing content ideas for your blog:

  • Survey your email list or social media fans. Ask what topics they want you to cover.
  • Hop on the phone with existing customers and ask about their pain points and challenges.
  • Search Quora for relevant questions and use them to inspire topics related to your industry.
  • Use BuzzSumo to find popular blog posts that are relevant to your niche and remix (not copy) them.

 

Now that you have a better idea of where to find blog topics, whip out a Google Spreadsheet, a Trello board or your Asana project and create your own blog content ideas bank.

I personally love Trello and use it to keep a running list of ideas and collaborate with my team when it comes to publishing my content.

But when it comes to brainstorming dozens of blog content ideas, I love using our Blog Content Bank Spreadsheet.

This is a resource I created for new our Bloggin’ For Business course that’s part of our exclusive membership, The Business Lounge, so if you want to learn more about designing a profitable blogging strategy, definitely sign up for my free masterclass below!


I love content banks because it helps me skip the whole scenario where I’m frantically looking for ideas when it’s time to write my blog content.

 

Next, build yourself a kick-butt content calendar.

I’m not going to go into details since we have a monster, step-by-step blog guide all about creating killer content calendars you can reference here.

Just know you need one and you can’t afford to skip this step if you want to stay consistent and grow your audience strategically.

 

 

I suggest using a tool like Coschedule or Trello to get your killer content calendar set up the right way. 🙂

 

 

Finally, figure out how frequently you are going to be publishing your blog content.

This, of course, is going to depend on your resources.

So a good rule of thumb to start with is one blog post per week. It’s a sustainable frequency, and that is the key.

You want to keep your audience engaged, but you don’t want to burn out.

So figure out the frequency you can realistically sustain consistently and stick with it.

For me, the right frequency is 1-2 per week, and it’s the sweet spot for both my brand and my audience.

 

blog-ads-2

 

Monetize Like A Pro

Blogging should not be your entire business model.

It’s designed to be a marketing tool for your existing or future business.

Ask any big name blogger you know, and you’ll quickly realize that blogging isn’t a lucrative business model on its own.

Sure, there are plenty of monster blogs out there that monetize solely on display ads, but they are on the decline.

In fact, these days even monster blogs who get millions of hits and monetize via display advertising are looking for alternatives to monetize their content.

That’s why the strategy that I am going to teach you in this blog has nothing to do with display advertisements, selling ad spots or sponsored posts.

The best way to monetize your blog is by selling your own stuff OR becoming an affiliate for products or programs that your audience wants and can benefit from (emphasis on the benefit part).

Here are four ways you can and should use to monetize your blog:

  • Add opt-in opportunities, so you can segment your email list based on their interests and sell them your products through email marketing.

38 Content Marketing Stats That Every Marketer Needs to Know

 

  • Include a content upgrade. If you are new to content upgrades, they are usually a snackable piece of content that is related to your specific blog post and gets your readers on your email list by providing them more value.

38 Content Marketing Stats That Every Marketer Needs to Know (1)

 

  • Include ads to your own stuff within your blog post or in the sidebar of your blog.

Google Analytics Segments - 8 Best Custom Imports

  • Become an affiliate for other brands and create content around those affiliate products so you can link to them.

I Switched From ActiveCampaign To Ontraport To Convertkit - Here's Why - Kimberly Ann Jimenez

 

The idea is to reverse-engineer the sale and use your blog as a tool to move your prospects along in your sales funnel.

Earlier this week, I shared my favorite Facebook ads tactic, the warm up strategy and it applies to your blog as well.

Every time you create a content piece, you want to use it as an opportunity to either build your list or offer folks an introductory, low-dollar offer that feeds into your sales funnel.

TBL Blogging For Business (1)

 

What Should You Expect?

 

Blogging isn’t an immediate cash cow you can just turn on.

You need to build an audience first, over time.

Don’t just expect to throw up a few affiliate links and start monetizing.

You have to serve your audience first. Hard.

And then, make sure the products are a right fit before you go on an affiliate craze.

Take it seriously. 

The worst thing you can do when you start a blog is to neglect it. Consistency is everything in business, so make sure you stay on your game every week.

Your blog is a huge asset to your business, and you need to have that in mind when the going gets tough.

Build it, and over time you will reap the financial reward.
