HOW TO TURN FACEBOOK VIDEOS INTO CLICKABLE LINKS!Chris Record
I've been running ads to a lot of videos recently, in preparation for my new course, the Viral Video Method.
During my testing, I've seen great results by adding clickable call to action links at the end of all my videos. This new feature by Facebook is pretty awesome, and I'd love to share it with everyone here so that you can start benefiting from it as well!
STEP 1: Create a fan page (unless you already have one).
STEP 2: Create a new post using the Photo/Video option.
STEP 3: Upload a video file (raw file, not a youtube link)
STEP 4: A link will now appear that says "Add a Call To Action".
STEP 5: Choose a button from the drop down, and enter your link.
STEP 6: It will auto-populate your title and description (you can edit).
STEP 7: Click "Post" and wait a few minutes for the video to load.
STEP 8: Watch the video to the very end and see the clickable link in action!
BONUS TIP: If you are planning to run ads to the video, you need to make sure that the thumbnail uses less than 20% text on the screen. The solution is to use custom thumbnails, which I teach in my Viral Video Method course that launches later this month. If you want to be a beta member before I launch it, send me a private message for more details.
I hope you are enjoying the value in these posts. My goal is to inspire you to realize the power of Facebook advertising, as well as using the latest cutting edge techniques and what's working in today's market.
