If you have a Facebook account then at some stage you’ve probably received an email offering you a free Facebook ad coupon. These are usually around 50-75 dollars. So you’ve got all that free advertising and now you’ll be able to get tons of traffic to your website, right?
Not so fast! Facebook ad coupons are great, but don’t just blow them on some advertising to get some quick fix of traffic to your website.
Firstly, you will not get floods of traffic from one coupon. It is possible, but you must follow this simple tip.
Learn how to advertise in Facebook! It’s very tempting to use your Facebook ad coupon to learn how to advertise on Facebook, but there’s not much point just wasting it without having some idea of what you’re doing.
How do you get Facebook Ad coupons?
There are two types of coupons. Facebook ad coupons that are only available to new accounts, and need to be used before the account gets too old. So make sure if you get a coupon for a new account that you start your research into Facebook advertising as soon as possible.
The other type of coupon you may receive is for any promotions that Facebook are running, or their partners run. This type of coupon may be only for new accounts, but they can also be for existing accounts. The terms and conditions that go with the coupon will make this clear
How Do You Redeem A Coupon
You just need to enter the coupon code into your Facebook advertising account and then the value of your coupon will be deducted before any charges are taken off your credit car or other method of payment that you use.
What Should I Watch Out For?
This is very important. Remember that when you enter a coupon into your advertising account, any charges will come from the coupon first. The charges then come from whatever method of payment you choose, but there is no warning when that will happen!
So you need to be very careful that if you only want to advertise with your Facebook ad coupon, that you set your daily budget and the length of time you want to advertise, to tally with the value on your coupon code.
Remember that a Facebook ad coupon is a nice thing to have but use it wisely. Keep it until you’re confident you know what to do with Facebook advertising, but don’t wait too long as it may become invalid. Also ensure you’re aware of when the coupon runs out and payment switches over to your normal method of payment.
