Below, digital marketing specialist Julian Cañita explains how Facebook advertising can be a great platform to reach your potential market.

I know a lot of people who are really great at closing sales.

Give them inquiries and they can convert a lot of them into clients and customers.

But for some, business still tends to be slow. This is because having a good success rate of closing leads is not much if there are very few inquiries. And this tends to be what a lot of business owners neglect or put on the backseat. They just wait for inquiries to come in as opposed to actively looking to connect with potential prospects themselves.

One way to get your business out there is through advertising. But a lot of small businesses don’t venture into advertising because the misconception is that advertising costs a lot.

The truth is, it doesn’t have to! Continue reading “Facebook Advertising: How to Get Direct Inquiries for Just P1,200 a Month”

Are you a freelancer looking to get hired as a Facebook ads specialist?

Welcome to the club!

I’ve been that guy for the past two years, and the thing that’s helped me the most in landing my clients is my pleasing personality.

Just kidding.

The thing is, because of technicalities we do not need to get into in this post, I’m not able to show any of my previous work as a Facebook Ads specialist.

What I do instead is to conduct an audit of the potential client’s Facebook ad account. I ask for analyzer’s access, go through the ad account and map out what I plan to do for the business.

If you’re kind of in the same situation as I am and need help converting those prospects into clients, I’ll share with you how I do a quick Facebook Ads Audit.
