”Facebook advertising appears simple, but it's trickier than search engine marketing. In this book, Perry Marshall and Tom Meloche teach you secret of "Right Angle Marketing" - selling based on who people are and what they identify with. This is entirely different from Yahoo! or Google. They help you determine how to prioritize Facebook within your particular marketing mix. Then they take you by the hand and lead you through the minefield, showing you the tools, bidding techniques, and sales cycles of Facebook ads. Without their help, the odds are stacked against you. With their help, your chances of success are excellent.”

”The irony of living in the Information Age is that good info has gotten harderto come by. The lame stuff still manages to clog the pipes, causing chaos andpreventing you from discovering the legit specifics that can actually help you in yourquest for business success and a bigger bottom line. Perry Marshall has been a first-stop, one-stop resource for the best possible advice on making AdWords work sinceGoogle unleashed it on the marketing community…and now, Perry’s new tome onFacebook’s astonishing (and yet-to-be-fully-tapped) power to reach gazillions oftargeted, eager prospects (most of whom you’d never even know existed, otherwise)is the first and probably the only book you need to be one of those early adopterswho score fastest. Perry’s books are always essential. This one is perhaps more sothan usual.”
-John Carlton, the most respected and ripped-off veteran copywriter on the Web
”Perry Marshall is amazing! He reinvented himself from engineer to white paper expert to become the world's leading expert in Google Adwords. Now with his secret weapon, Tom Meloche, he's reinvented himself again, this time as the guru in Facebook advertising ... through which, he points out, you can access 600 million customers in 10 minutes.”
-Bob Bly, author of over 60 books including Complete Idiot’s Guide to Direct Marketing, The Online Copywriter’s Handbook and Public Relations Kit for Dummies
”Perry Marshall is a terrific writer who makes wonderful use of stories and analogies to illustrate a concept. He does this exceptionally well in the chapter on ad copy writing, ‘The Power of Hidden Psychological Triggers.’ That chapter alone is worth the price of this book.
"Many companies have tried Facebook ads and failed for one simple reason: they treated Facebook advertising like search advertising.
“Facebook is social advertising. Social advertising is about understanding and reaching the user. Not the user's behavior; but the actual person. This is where the book shines. It walks you through strategies of reaching your target audience based upon the person's social profile so that you aren't just accumulating 'Likes,’ but actually gaining new customers.
“I'd recommend this book to anyone who is advertising, or wants to advertise, on Facebook. Social advertising is unique from most other types of advertising, and this book will teach you the concepts and how-tos you must understand so that your Facebook ads increase your overall profits.”
-Brad Geddes, author of Advanced Google AdWords
”One of the things I love about Perry is that he always shoot from the hip. Ultimate Guide to Facebook Advertising is written with no holds barred, which means that all the ‘juicy’ tips that might get left out of other, similar books are all in this book. It's more than just a tactical ‘how to.’ It goes into the psychological aspects of ad writing specifically suited for Facebook and gives all kinds of practical advice for fan pages. So for anyone who really wants to get serious about Facebook advertising, this book is definitely a must read.”
-Shelley Ellis, contextual advertising expert, www.ContentNetworkInsider.com
”Perry Marshall led the pack with Google AdWords back in 2006. He's still leading the pack today with Ultimate Guide to Facebook Advertising. Perry and Tom Meloche combine ‘insider’ knowledge of marketing on Facebook with proven marketing fundamentals for a powerful one-two punch that delivers results. Perry doesn't just theorize about how Facebook marketing works, he does it himself, and he's worked with thousands of others to hone his knowledge of this emerging landscape. If you're thinking of marketing on Facebook, or if you're already doing it, you'd be crazy to not get Ultimate Guide to Facebook Advertising.
-Clate Mask, president, InfusionSoft
”Hands down, I have never seen a more comprehensive in-depth study of successful Facebook advertising than what you are holding in your hands. Perry has done it again, he’s extracted the 'gold' within this amazing system of advertising that every astute marketer should devour and implement.”
- Ari Galper, founder and CEO, Unlock The Game, www.UnlockTheGame.com
"Hundreds of my clients have failed at Facebook before. Many were so seriously slaughtered that I'd written it off as a traffic source for all but the most advanced marketer, so recommending this book is not something I do lightly—yet I DO suggest you order a rush copy. Simply put, it's a game changer. If you've tried Facebook before and failed, I'll bet you didn't have the testing paradigm, targeting insights, bidding strategies, tools, and creative advertising resources outlined in the easy-to-digest, entertaining words here. This goes double for experienced PPC marketers and triple for anyone who's read another Facebook advertising book. Seriously, if this isn't worth a trip to Amazon.com, I don't know what is!"
