Title:  How To Create Facebook Offers That Sell

Presented by: Frank Scerbo Jr.   Time: 5:30 – 6:30

Description: If you’ve ever run ads on Facebook that didn’t work, don’t worry. It’s not your fault…You are just one ad away from changing everything…After running hundreds of ads, I discovered a formula for crafting just the right promotional offer without saturating the market using the same, boring brick wall that no potential customer will want…and it works for any business.You might even call it a “secret”.

In this class, I’ll show you the technique I use to create amazing offers so you don’t have to spend a fortune trying to figure it out yourself.

You will get:

  • A time-saving overview of how to run Facebook ads (the right way)
  • My proven “Offer” worksheet to simply plug and play with your business
  • Walk-through examples using industries that have historically been challenging to advertise on social media

***Lots of very fun Silent Auction and Raffle items***



Our featured Business of the Month Members are Roxane Galati and Karen Parry
