Blog Post: 30+ Resources To Help You Excel at Facebook Advertising in 2014 – With over 1.3 billion active users, a treasure trove of user data, sophisticated targeting options and the opportunity to place content directly in your target audience’s line of sight (the News Feed), Facebook is a very appealing advertising platform for online marketers. And if the rapid rate at which Facebook is rolling out improvements to their advertising platform is any indication, it’s only going to become more and more appealing.
2013 was a big year for Facebook’s advertising business. The company revamped the ads platform and their Power Editor. This gave users a cleaner, friendlier interface, more useful and advanced reporting options and an objective-oriented ad experience. They also launched conversion tracking, allowing advertisers to directly attribute conversions on their websites and landing pages to Facebook ads.
We’re only a few months into 2014 and Facebook has already announced the rollout of Ad Sets, which allow users to organize their ads into sets within each campaign.

Latest Question – A current parent at our school posted an amazing review of CVC on her FB timeline. I have permission from her to share it on our school’s FB page, but FB isn’t allowing me to do it.
