    What i’m about to reveal is going to seriously open up the free marketing floodgates and make FB our bitch for our Blackhat marketing needs. Logic says I should package it up into an expensive course and make a fortune from it but you know what, i’m just gonna share it with you all because BHW is part of the reason why I work online full time and quit my job for online entrepreneurship a year ago.

    BassTrackerBoats' Facebook groups method got me earning stable income so I’d like to say a BIG Thank You to him for giving advice on his thread for a year and a half. This is my chance to give back to BHW also and I’m more than happy to help fellow black hatter’s out indefinitely with the these new ‘hacks’. I've spent a good 6 months testing these methods and their effectiveness, so you can be assured that they actually work right now.

    In order to get a HUGE advantage and make use of Facebook’s newest marketing tools, we’re going to be using their advertising platform (www.facebook.com/ads/manager). Don’t worry though, you’re not going to spend anything. You can use your personal account but I wouldn’t recommend it. I would advise using a 1+ year aged account for acting out these methods.

    Before I go over the step-by-step guide, I’m going to give you a summary of what you’re going to be able to do by ‘exploiting’ FB’s advertising platform for free. Brace yourself for multiple game changers.

    Your New Black Hat Powers

    [​IMG]


    So, here’s the power you’ll possess when combining Black Hat techniques with Facebook’s advertising tools:

    1) The ability to add a Headline & Link (just like a normal FB link post) to the bottom of ANY video. Previously, marketers would use a call to action + link in the video description. That will make you some money but when a video is shared, the link in the description doesn’t show unless the video is opened up fully, meaning a very low CTR from organic viral traffic.

    Here's an example of this new video post:

    [​IMG]

    The video is portrait size and takes a HUGE chunk of the Facebook feed (Very high engagement). The post is for the Survival / Prepper niche and uses a viral video on a man destroying a hornet's nest with a flamethrower. The headline below the video is a call to action and link for Clickbank product, The Lost Ways. This is just an example of something I quickly threw up and shared on 10-15 survival groups. Made 2 sales but for better results, the headline should match the video subject. To give you an idea: Have you seen a viral video about a new gadget? A headline & link telling people where to buy that product from the video would be the best call to action.

    2) (You’re all going to go crazy for this!) The ability to use a Free FB Lead Ad post as a landing page to collect ridiculously EASY Email Addresses. The user doesn’t even have to type anything! Facebook automatically fills in their account email and they just click one button to submit their name & email!

    Here’s an example of a Facebook lead ad:

    [​IMG]
    Using the tricks below, you’ll be able to advertise this for free and link to it from ANY website!

    That means, NO hosting and completely FREE FB lead collection landing pages!

    And - you’re now able to choose a video & headline (instead of picture & headline) for lead ads! This is literally brand new. Just found it when writing this (so haven’t tested the video lead ad yet) #mindblown

    3) The ability to post ANY link on Facebook with the headline, link description and image of your choice! This used to be a MAJOR headache for most of us. We’d have to use a Wordpress plugin to change the FB preview or if the link we promoted wasn’t ours, we just prayed the website owner had a semi-decent preview image & description. Now, you have complete control.

    Note - With video links and lead ad links, the name of the page you used will be shared when you promote it but with a standard link, it will appear as if you posted an external URL into the status box.

    4) The ability to use Facebook Post Analytics. A feature that very little marketers know about (Not to be confused with stats from running paid ads). You’ll be able to see some very useful stats, such as reactions, post shares, link clicks and negative feedback.

    To blow your minds even further: Facebook has built in stock images from shutterstock. Some of which can be very expensive if purchased individually. But when using FB’s advertising tools, you have access to their entire database of images! Sweet, crisp HD photos without having to pay a single penny.

    And that’s not even the limit. There’s lots of other tools in FB’s advert platform, such as: Mobile app promotion, event promotion, offers/coupons and local marketing. I haven’t tested any of those but if someone has the time, i’m sure you can really tap into uncharted territory for free advertising.

    Finding The Offer

    Before you can hit ground running and start earning proper money, you’ll need to find an offer to promote. One of the best networks for finding profitable offers to promote is Clickbank. I'm not going to here’s a ton of information on these forums and Youtube to help you find the best selling products (filtering by gravity) on there. Setting up a Shopify store is another great option (requires small investment for fees & apps).

    If you’re looking for offers in a particular niche, offervault.com is a great search tool.

    What works best for me, when using these methods are offers that have a free or very low priced entry point and a high priced back end. There’s one offer i’m promoting (Private invite only network) that offers free lectures & SEO training and people go crazy for it, enter their funnel and then get sold to continuously, with commissions of up to a few $$$$ . If you can find an offer like that and one of your posts goes viral, you can earn an easy $10k+ a month. For regular offers, like the ones in Clickbank, you should expect to earn around $2k a month with a few converting offers.

    The Method

    Follow these instructions step-by-step to create whatever the hell you want. No approval or disapproval crap. Your in control of Facebook now.

    1) Open up Google Chrome. Open up a new incognito window (optional) and log in to
    Facebook with your aged account.

    2) Go to www.facebook.com/ads/manager and complete the initial setup.

    3) Click on the dropdown menu (top left corner) and choose ‘billing and payment settings’

    4) Open a new tab and search for ‘Virtual credit card’. Choose your desired service. Create an account and make a note of the ZIP / Postcode you’re using. You’ll need to deposit $5-10 normally in order to set up a virtual card (depending on the service) but you won’t be spending those funds on this method. You should now have a full credit card number, expiry date and security code.

    5) Go back to the Facebook tab and add a new card. Enter the information from your virtual card and the ZIP / Postcode. Confirm. If all is well, the card will be added to your account.

    Note - If this fails, it’s because Facebook has detected suspicious activity (which is why ZIP/postcode matching on FB & virtual card service is important but doesn’t always prevent a red flag). The account’s ads manager will be suspended and you will need to use another account instead to continue with this method. Also setup a new virtual credit card. Some providers will let you add multiple cards.

    6) Click on the Facebook menu again and choose ‘Ads Manager’. Click on the ‘Create Campaign’ button.

    7) Now we’ll uncover 3 types of Blackhat abilities. The Video Link post, the lead generating ad & the fully customisable standard link.

    Facebook will ask you to choose an option when you create a campaign. Here’s the option you need to select, depending on what type of post you want:

    Video & customisable link post - Consideration > Send people to your website > Choose any Campaign name > Continue > Click ‘format’ on the left side menu > Select ‘Single Image’ for customisable link post / Select ‘Single Video’ for video link post.

    Lead ad post - Consideration > Collect leads for your business > Choose any Campaign name > Continue > Click ‘format’ on the left side menu > Choose a single image or a single video.

    8) Fill in the required fields and upload your photos or videos. You’ll be shown a preview of what the post will look like, so just adjust until you’re happy.

    To use stock images, just click on ‘free stock images’ and search for whatever you want. The shutterstock watermark will disappear after you select the image and preview the ad:

    [​IMG]

    You can exit the page at any time. FB usually saves your progress, so if you need to create a new page for your post, you can just pick up where you left off.

    9) When you’re happy with the post, click on ‘Place Order’ and if you’ve followed everything above, you’ll get a red error message at the bottom, telling you payment could not be completed or insufficient funds. This is perfect because we don’t want FB to run any ads, as they get reviewed and the ad account gets banhammered if promoting things like CB offers.

    Note - Default ad budget is $20.00, so payment always fails, as the necessary funds are not available on the virtual credit card.

    10) Click back onto the Facebook menu (top left) and choose ‘Page Posts’. Select a page (that you used for the ad post) from the dropdown box and you’ll see the post that you just created. Click on that post and bring up a preview of the post. Right click on the date of the post (next to the name of the publisher) and copy the link.

    The link you copied is your post URL. That’s all you need to promote the post :)

    Important (Lead ad post) - If you’re using a lead ad post, it cannot be shared / embedded. You will need to post a link to that Facebook post and the user will need to land on that page in order to collect a lead. I’ve tested this and there are ways to share the lead ad post in groups but when they click on the call to action button, nothing will happen, so don’t bother with that.

    Facebook Post Analytics

    Referring back to step 10 - when you open the preview and copy the post link, you’ll be able to see the FB Post Analytics feature! Very useful for split testing different posts. There’s also a negative feedback section (just below the bottom of the image), so you can see if the audience you’re promoting to consider it as spam.

    (These are the analytics from the Lost Ways / Hornet's nest video shown near the start of this thread. And to clarify, clicks on the 'Learn more' button are counted as 'other clicks')

    PRO Tips

    • If you’re making a large number of video posts and want to make the video uploading process easier - Upload the video when you construct a video post. After uploading, remove the video, then upload the next one. Keep repeating for up to 10 videos at a time. Refresh the ad creation page and click ‘browse library’. All of your videos will be stored under your ad account.
    • You can change the domain of every Facebook post using this method. If you’re feeling naughty, you can change the domain name to an established domain in the niche to gain many more clicks.
    • If you want to split test multiple images or videos using the same headline / link etc.. - After clicking ‘Place Order’ (step 9), just change the image or video and click place order again. A new post will be generated every time you press ‘place order’, so you can make or stack as many posts as you want!
    • By default, the ad posts you create will be ‘dark posts’, meaning they won’t be visible on your page. If you want to publish the post publically or schedule it, select the post under ‘Page Posts’ by ticking the checkbox next to it and choose publish post from the dropdown menu above.
    BRING HOME THE MONEY!

    All that’s left is to promote your Facebook post. Two of the most popular ways are to build up a following on your fanpage(s) and post directly to them, using your page. There’s enough information out there on these forums and Youtube for building up Facebook pages.

    Another method is posting to Facebook groups. For everything related to posting on groups, visit Basstrackerboat’s mega-thread. Everything you need is on all of the pages, so take your time to read through every single page.


    Questions / Concerns

    Q) Why do you suggest an aged account?

    A) It’s the safest, risk free way of making the most of these tricks. A new account jumping straight into ads manager without any history is going to set off a lot of red flags. Using a personal account can be a problem if you’re promoting anything that FB doesn’t allow on it’s paid platform, such as Clickbank, physical knives, profanity, adult material etc… Getting your ad account instantly suspended is a possibility, since FB’s bots crawl through the advertised site, which is why I don’t recommend simply deleting the ad post straight after creating it. You don’t want it to hit the review process and the virtual credit card trick stops that from happening.

    Q) Why is an error message displaying on the ad post preview?

    A) It usually means Facebook isn’t accepting that URL. You’ll need to try a different URL

    Please be aware that entering a ‘hoplink’ URL from an affiliate network / Clickbank is not going to be accepted by Facebook (in most cases). You’ll need to cloak the link or use a ‘bridge page’ as a transition between the ad post and the offer.

    Q) I follow all of the steps but nothing is showing under page posts?

    A) Make sure you have the correct page chosen (the one you created the post with). If you can’t see anything after placing the ad order, Facebook may have auto deleted the post. This happens when they view a link as suspicious. To confirm this, create an ad again and choose an authority URL, like a BBC news article, place the order and see if the post shows up. If it does, it’s 100% a problem with the URL.

    Conclusion

    What you’ve been shown is pretty much a spoonfed method. I haven’t left any details out but if you do have any questions, feel free to post them. Please look through the thread first though, in case it’s been answered already. If you’re struggling to find offers and get into CPA networks, please give me a PM and i’ll do my best to help you out.

    Now, it’s time to take action and get rich with Mr Zuckerberg's platform, for free! (In a day & age where everyone says you need to spend a lot of money to make money)

    So basically you are using a different looking video post which is created with ads manager and post that one to groups or all over FB....correct?

    The mighty Rotherham United! ;) Nah... i'm happy after yesterday's result, if that answers your question :)

    A tip for anyone posting their links on Massplanner. Post the link under the 'share posts' feature, instead of treating it like an external URL. Less likely to set off spam filters I found, if you're posting to 20-40 groups.

    sysco32 and abhi007 - Yes, for point #1, it's an ordinary video (can be portrait or landscape size) but has a headline with a link below it. The difference in CTR between a standard FB video with a call to action text + URL link and the version I've shown above is typically x10 greater if the video has a lot of shares. Having a portrait size video helps greatly too since it takes up the whole screen on mobile.

    This style of video makes much more money than the standard video because of the higher CTR. The video method isn't a game changer in it's self but if you make a lead ad with a video, use it as a landing page and even rank it on Google (just named a twist for the Parasite method posted a year or two ago), you could build an email list very quickly, with Facebook's push button lead collection.

    Hey unitedforever, great idea and so cool of you to share this here. I can not believe that this does not have more comments and activity. I have just found the BTB method share by him and reading and following along.

    Would you mind sending me a PM with the network that you are currently using?

    Thanks
