    P.S. - Don't expect people you want to learn from to spend longer on their answer than you have on your question.

      It looks to me his post was about the size of an adwords ad.. so I guess he's getting some practice already! ;-)

        Spend some time looking at Facebook ads, see which ones stand out for you.

        There is no quick way to learn this.

          One good way to shortcut the learning process is to buy a good course on the subject.

      That's exactly what I think when I see requests like this ^.

      How about telling us more?

      Really, we'd love to give our input.

      But this ^ reminds me of that terribly bored, socially awkward bass player I used to jam with who would call me up and say... "Hey, what's up man?" ...and then, nothing but dead silence while he waited for ME to fill in the conversation.

        You got off lightly. I accidentally married her.

        Luckily she ran away with my best friend so now HE has to fill the awkward silences.

        Poor *******.

    You are specifically interested to learn how to write Facebook, Google and Adword writing.

    I would suggest you study said interests 15 hours a day 7 day's a week and you just may crack a sliver of what's really happening. Nothing is going to be handed to you.

    If you think it is you're crazy. Because that's obviously what you're looking for here.

    Trial and error ,bud.

    Obviously, thisisraz65 is a newbie. But ridiculing him doesn't help. Although trial and error can work as some have suggested, Alex has the best answer: get a good course on the subject. There are many out there. Copywriting is an art that must be achieved to succeed.

    • Robmer,

      This should have been obvious to you, thisisraz65 has been here for 2 years and has 465 posts, where you only have 1. So me thinks you are the newbie. So do yourself a favor don't lecture us until you have 5 posts.

    When I started advertising on Adwords, I first saved 10 competing advertisements in my niche
    and started studying them before starting to write my own.

    I followed the basic rule of writing ads:

    What it does, How it does, how long it takes, how much it cost, best of all

    As all ad network have different word limits so I try to cover the basics first...for example...

    Ad headline: Lose 10 Pounds in 10 days. Free Trial. No Side Effects!
    Ad Text: Check out this weird secret mostly known by celebrities that helps to achieve their dream body faster than anything.

    Simple? BUT Sometimes All These Well Thought Ads Never Gets Even 2% CTR on certain competitive ad networks, specially adwords!!!

    And sometimes weird ads which doesn't make any sense get over 10% CTR! specially on facebook.
    For example, An image of a lady(no make up) looking angry.. and text says, She got angry when they denied to share the secret of losing over 10 pounds in a week!!
    or
    Forget about losing weights dumbass!!

    But these ads are hard to get approved sometimes!

    So its all about testing & tweaking real ads!

    An ad only has to get attention and bring visitor to your sales page where the real hypnosis begins so test atleast 10 ads to find working ads in that niche.
