    I've been using facebook ads, only been spending around $5 or less on each video just to test concepts. I found a good way to advertise is to promote your page, which gets more likes but doesnt necessarily get engagement. And then after I would promote a new video to the people who have already liked my page. Which has a higher chance of engagement because they have already liked my page, instead of advertising to random new people. But im only starting out so ive still got a long way to go and alot to learn. Cheers for the message!!

    Playing off of your idea of fire and gasoline idea, I would add letting your organic posts on Facebook be a gauge on what to pay for. Keep posting and testing engaging content with different copy lengths, photos, links ect. Once u see a post get natural eng then use that one as a paid ad.

    I tried $5 bucks into instagram, because i do a lot of fun silly things on intagram. it at least got me 1500 interactions and about 400 views in about 3 days, sometimes to can set it for $1 a day for 10 days. it keeps perpetuating your instagram up there a little. even if it is not a lot at least something is being put up. People tried $10 for one day, and it didn't reach as many people as he thought, even with decent content. just something to consider. #SarcasticallyJoe on instagram facebook and Youtube just so you can get an idea.

    I advertised the first time I had a YouTube channel. It help grow the number of subscribers — albeit modestly. With the recent reboot of my YouTube channel, I'm trying to focus more on content and word-of-mouth promotion first. In a few months, I'll probably try some paid advertising, too. I agree with the guys. Facebook gives you a lot of cyber-bang for your buck. Even a $10 ad campaign will get you a few hundred hits. Shawn R., pres/CEO, Mo-Mutt Music

    Great video. I just subscribed after watching this. Do you know why some of these so called "YouTube gurus" advise thier viewers not to advertise. They even go as far as saying advertising actually hurt our channels view counts and exposure in the long run.

    thanks good video! I wondered if I should use a regular video as ad or create a special ad video because I fear that the retention and organic growth of a regular video may suffer when used as an ad. what is your opinion?

    My business is promoting other businesses. So for me, I will be using FB ads down the road. But for now, I am focused on "free promotion" by using groups in my "growth engine" platforms.

    A couple of months in trying to grow, and we feel with all of the changes over the last 18 months it's seems harder to grow organically and paying to advertise to grow is even more cost prohibitive due to low response rates for channel promotion ads.

    Awesome stuff. So true that most people need to work on their content first before jumping into advertising. Advertising is great to scale your business, but if the foundation content isn't converting or bringing in sales, it's a big waste of money. Most people don't have a traffic problem they have a conversion problem. Thanks for this video!

    Every time I try to advertise on FB, they say that the business I'm in sells data to 3rd parties (isn't that kind of ironic coming from FB???). I have a video that I made for my service (we pay cash for homes in the Sacramento area. Mostly homes that need serious repair, but we have contractors who will fix the home, then flip it for a little bit of profit). So I'm kind of done with FB. I've appealed the decision but once they make their decision, not only will they not change their mind, but they also ban you from advertising with the in the future!! Here is my video I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7H6xWqG83A&list=PL2SRFUt8dgXVoKSRhN7BtCU3ZDFQLHrAW So I didn't want to make a website, I did a google my business page instead, wondering if that is the right way to go and how do I scale this up now without spending a million bucks? This is a high competition niche so any advice is appreciated!

    @Video Influencers
    Hey! Sorry if the question is dumb.I have watched half of the video. Can we grow our youtube channel through facebook ads? I have gained 6k+ subscribers in just six months. In the past 30 days alone I have gained 5k+ subscribers so my content is great. I want 60k subscribers in a month. Can youtube ads or facebook ads help me achieve it? Two days ago I got 900+ subscribers in a day. Another day I got 700+, Another day 800+. I am telling this because you may wonder that I am crazy of targeting 60k sub goal in just one month with paid advertising.

    I hope this comment helps someone else before they spend their money like i did my first time. I have personally invested roughly 100$ (total) with 3 different campaigns over the last 3-5 months. My first campaign was a trailer of my channel and it wasn't interesting at all for advertising but on top of it being a bad ad, I targeted the complete wrong audience. I had audiences from all over watching my ad which wasted a lot of money. My next campaign went even worse. This time I targeted my audience a little too peculiar, which resulted in little impressions per day and the few views I were getting were costing right at my max CPV because I didn't have a lot of people to choose from. My latest campaign has been a huge success. The ad was engaging from the start and I narrowed my audience just enough to get plenty of impressions and not cost me much to do so because I had more of an audience to choose from.

    Takeways:
    Set your audiences properly – Example: I have a video about why people hate their jobs. I had audiences from employment and college categories because I knew those people might hate what they do for a living.

    Don't invest a lot of money your first campaign – See what works and what doesn't work for you first. That way your next campaign is even better with a bigger budget!

    Still try to grow organically while advertising – Do you know whats even better then having an ad promote your channel? YOU! You should promote your channel as much as possible while your campaign is live to get the most rewards!

    I hope I could help someone out there!

    I have experimented with ads on facebook…and this way I found out what people want. I have one add that has a lot of clicks (watches), high likes and is now shared +88 times (spend 100). So I realized I need to make simular content to be more popular. My channel is 2 months old. It is nice to hear it is ok to do this and to have confirmation from people with a lot of experience. I now also realize my audience is female and 40+ (like me). They click the most. I have a vegetable garden channel.

    Great video guys,

    I have used FaceBook adds in the past with boosting certain related photos and things.
    Would you recommend paying Fb to promote a direct YouTube Video link?
    Being a direct video link from Youtube to Facebook. Would that work also?
    Any feed back would be great.
