Advertising on Facebook… It comes in handy to know how to create Facebook custom audiences for highly targeted ads and cheap CPC -Cost Per Click-. If you are like me, and spend a lot of time on Facebook, why not making money from hanging out on Facebook? Facebook advertising can get very pricey and you could see your money go down the drain fairly quickly if you don’t pay attention. It is important to know how to maximize your ads, highly target your audiences and run ads for cheaper than you normally would. One of the ways to do this is to use a software that will let you scrape Facebook UIDs -User IDs- from specific Groups and Pages. You can then advertise exclusively to these unique audiences you created.
What Happened to Facebook Traffic Snipper?
I used a software called Facebook Traffic Sniper which was a great Facebook UIDs scraper but unfortunately got shut down by Facebook shortly after its launch in May 2013. I liked that software and I felt really bummed when it suddenly vanished off the face of the internet. Jeremy Kennedy and James Renouf, Facebook Traffic Sniper developers apologized, issued many refunds, and made up in many ways to their customers. It appears to me that Facebook Traffic Sniper got shut down because of its “email” scraping feature.
Social Lead Freak Rocks
I looked for similar softwares and I finally decided to purchase Social Lead Freak from developer Ali G which seems to be 100% within Facebook guidelines.
Social Lead Freak is Facebook Traffic Sniper’s sibling without the email scraping feature. Yes you can still obtain users’ Facebook email addresses but not their personal email addresses.
What will Social Lead Freak do for you?
I highly recommend Social Lead Freak as you will be able to create Facebook custom audiences for highly targeted ads. Basically the software will scrape Facebook UIDs from groups, pages you picked. Let’s say you are in the Weight Loss industry and you would like to advertise on Facebook to people interested in weight loss right now. You may for instance find your audience in Facebook Groups, or in Facebook Pages.
Once you obtain these precious Facebook UIDs, you can go ahead and upload them to Facebook Power Editor and run ads exclusively targeted to your specific custom audience. Not only your Facebook ads will be extremely efficient but they will also be a lot cheaper to run.
Please watch the video below where I explain in detail how Social Lead Freak works, how to upload your Facebook UIDs to .csv files, then to Facebook Power Editor, and finally how to make a Facebook ad.
My BONUS TIP for my readers : this is a huge time saver, you will thank me later!
Instead of uploading many .csv files to your Facebook Power Editor to create Custom audiences, or copying-pasting many multiple .csv files into a big .csv file, you will save a lot of your precious time by merging multiple .csv files into a big .csv file.
This is how you can merge multiple .csv files into a big .csv file :
