What is the better way to do Facebook ads?

8 replies
I have a YouTube channel about geekie stuff like movies and RPG.

I created a blog where I also post the vÃ*deos along the transcripted text.

I'm going to make a FB ad boosting a vÃ*deo I made about Netflix new Marvel Luke Cage show.

Should my ad point the URL directly to YouTube? (Image + vÃ*deo url) or to the website? (Image + site url)

Which way is better to gain more views and subscribers?

    Depending on what you hope to achieve, I would suggest you point your ad to your website. You can embed your Youtube video on your site/blog.

    Sending people to YouTube is never a good idea. They get easily distracted. and you will lose them very very quickly.

    But when they are on your site, they will spend a bit of time, looking for interesting pieces of content and you can even offer to keep them updated via email when you post new content.

    To do this, ensure you have a lead capture form on your web pages... You begin to build a list of targeted followers. Good luck

    Also depending on your blog set up, adding social share icons will also help to spread for content for free assuming they love what they see.

    If you have FB page - better link your ad to that Facebook page and motivate your FB page visitor to be you follower (press like) then offer to watch the video or go to your web site. People which are on FB do not feel comfortable leaving in.

    It will all depend on your goal and what you want to achieve.
    If you want to get more views and subscriber, link it directly to your Youtube channel or videos.
    But if your goal is to create traffic to your website, point your link to your website.
    For me, it is ALWAYS best to point it directly to your website rather than pointing it to youtube. In your website you can always embed your Youtube videos.

    It is ok to post to a youtube video, but only under certain circumstances. They are right when they say that you might lose the traffic on youtube if you send them there instead of your website. However, let's say you don't do a facebook ad (you could if you wanted) if you get people to go to the video then you have a chance of that video going viral on youtube (or atleast close to a viral) and banking on youtube traffic.

    You should point your ad to your website where you have put a YOUTUBE button that links back to your channel for just to get two in one
    1. Visitors to your website.
    2. Views to your channel too.

    What is your purpose? You want more view on youtube chanel or more visitor on your blog? I think you should post your video on related fanpage. If it's good, many people will watch it and you don't need to make facebook ads.
