A Facebook group is a community on Facebook that shares the same interests and that enables members of the group to communicate with each other and share information.

There are three types of Facebook groups closed, public and secret.

Closed groups

-Make sure you share great tips so your audience feels they are learning something interesting from you the more they learn the more likely they will engage with your video and the more they will share it

-in this video, you don’t need to add any call to action. simply provide great value in the form of quality content and infamy because the aim of the video is for as many people to watch it so you can retarget them with Facebook ads

recording your video

-once your script has been written you will need to record it when recording your video basic equipment is required the equipment required is

-Camera phone cameras are not good enough to produce quality videos

-Tripod to keep the camera steady if using a phone to record your video phone tripods can be used

-Microphone quality sound is very important if you don’t have quality sound your video can look unprofessional we recommend using lapel microphones which can easily be clipped on clothes and remain discreet

-A teleprompter is optional but can come in handy if you plan to record a long script and avoid forgetting what you say or avoid pausing to find your words we recommend prompted maxy teleprompter

Once your video is ready to publish it on your Facebook page and then share the post on to your Facebook group.

To do so simply click on share below your post.

Then type the name of the group you would like to publish your video post onto.

If you have several Facebook groups a drop-down menu will appear simply select the one you want this will allow your group members to watch the video so when you want to display ads to your group members you can simply set up an ad and choose to display the ad only to people who have viewed your video.

log into your Facebook account and select create ads based on the goal you would like to achieve with your ads

for example, you can choose to create an audience of people who have watched at least 75% of your video.

The longer they watched your video for the more interested and engaged they were with it which means the more likely they’ll be receptive to your Facebook ads.

Then click on choose videos and select the Facebook page you initially publish the video on and tick the box next to the video if you published multiple videos on your Facebook page all the videos will be displayed and you’ll have to find the one you also share it on your Facebook group then click on confirm.

Then decide whether you want to create an audience based on the latest people who have watched your video.

for example, only people who have watched the video in the past two weeks or whether you want to create an audience based on people who have watched your video regardless of how long ago if that’s the case just put 365 days. So Facebook will be based on the people who have watched your video at any time during the past 365 things.

Then name your audience so you can easily find it again and use it for other Facebook advertising campaigns you run and click on create an audience.
