Chapter 11: Facebook in the Future

“Perry Marshall’s Crystal Ball for Facebook and Social Media

Perry Marshall is author of The Ultimate Guide to Facebook Advertising, published by Entrepreneur Press. He weighs in:

The immediate future of Facebook can be summarized in four words: social media grows up.

The Internet as we know it caught fire in 1997, and it took about four years for the chaos to give way to actual, sensible business models. In 1998 I had a profitable website, making me perhaps one of the 1,000 most profitable people on the entire Internet. The rest of the world was cluelessly kiting stock prices.

Social media during the last three to four years has been no different, and that’s about to change. There was a dot-com bubble, and there’s been a social media bubble.”

“Perry Marshall and Brian Teasley have created a free Web site,, which you can use to determine how ads will perform differently in the end. Just enter the number of clicks and the clickthrough rate for each ad, and you’ll receive an instant diagnosis. This tool saves me hours of number crunching every month.”

“Although he doesn’t know it, Perry Marshall was one of the very first people to influence the way we thing about marketing. Perry is the de facto expert on the topic of Google AdWords.

His training is perfect for the do-it-yourselfer who wants to learn to master online lead attraction. Perry’s an expert at integrating personality and emotional appeal with technical information and sales.

AdWords For Dummies
by Howie Jacobson


“Perry Marshall of shares a wallet-walloping calculation that should convince you to spend a lot of quality time working on your landing pages:

Let’s say you pay 50 cents for a click and Barbara in Oregon goes to your Web site and spends eight seconds seeing what you’re selling…then leaves.

50 cents divided by 8 seconds is $225.00 per hour.

Barbara in Oregon’s attention is pretty expensive, wouldn’t you say?

Now, maybe Barbara was never your customer. She clicked because your ad aroused her curiosity, or was cute, or implied or promised something for nothing. Oh, well, can’t win them all. But most Web site owners are told to be satisfied with conversion percentages that are pathetically low: half a percent, one percent. The Web is a numbers game, they’re told. Get enough traffic and even a mediocre site can pay the rent.”

When Google Adwords Is The Least Effective Way
To Reach Your Target Customer
Perry Marshall

Co-author, The Ultimate Guide to Google Adwords


“Because I’m the author of some of the most popular books on Google Adwords, my clients are surprised to hear me say that sometimes Google might be the last on your list of best ways to sell your product. Let me give you some examples that lend insight into Google’s place in the world…

Keyword-based advertising only works when people know they have a problem, can describe it to themselves, and believe that somebody on the internet has a solution. But many people have severe problems they don’t even realize they have. If that’s the case, search engine marketing isn’t a very good way to reach them. You need to interrupt them instead. So again, direct mail, ads in magazines they read, TV, radio – all of those media might be better. Search engine marketing only gets you people who are proactively looking to solve their problems right now.”

Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green
by Jay Conrad Levinson and Shel Horowitz


“The Internet millionaire Perry Marshall calls business a form of alchemy:

Converting worthless things into items necessary and valuable. Moving resources from areas of low return to high return. Harnessing the forces of nature to produce food and wealth for everyone. Politics may be about the endless arguments about how the pie should be sliced – but entrepreneurship is about baking more pies.

Take two of the most successful companies of the last decade – Intel and Microsoft. Intel takes desert sand – worth less even than lead – and turns it into Pentium chips – which are worth more than gold.”

The Ultimate Marketing Plan
by Dan S. Kennedy


“Let’s say you sell cordless phones. Go to, click on “advertising programs,” and open an AdWords account. You write an ad, then pick a list of keywords that trigger the ad to appear – such as “cordless phone.” You set a bid price, which is the maximum price you’ll pay for a “click” on your ad. Ten minutes later, your ad starts to appear, driving traffic to your Web site.


Perry Marshall offers a free tutorial on Google AdWords, which teaches how to use this medium, how to reduce costs, how to do market tests, and common beginners’ mistakes to avoid. You can sign up for this free tutorial at

Underneath this simple explanation, there’s a very sophisticated game of keywords and bidding strategies, and the rules seem to change daily. There’s also terrific opportunity to quickly and cheaply test different ads and offers. That’s where Perry Marshall comes in. He’s a consummate player of this game, optimizing response for his clients and teaching others how to do it for themselves.”

“Another very successful AdWords ad is shown in Figure 7.3. This is an ad that pops up when people type “Google AdWords” into Google. It’s the work of Perry Marshall, who, for my money, is the preeminent authority on using this advertising medium to get results.

Perry’s headline is clever, in a productive way. “Beat the AdWords System” implies there is a system, which of course, most people don’t know about; that it’s possible to beat the system (which is inherently appealing, all by itself); and that he can show you how.

And, once again, there’s a word in the headline (“AdWords”) that was already on the prospect’s mind (because that’s what he or she typed into the search form in order for the ad to come up). That’s very important.”

The guru of Google Ads is Perry Marshall, who wrote Ultimate Guide to Google Adwords. I highly recommend that you read this book.”

“Both search engines and Facebook offer some of the better ways to target the type of customer you are looking for and also bring your survey of the most visibility. Search engine marketing can feel overwhelming for those who haven’t done it before. To keep it simple, you’ll be bidding on keywords that will display advertisements on search engines results pages. Start slow and consider only spending $20 to $50 per day with keywords that cost you less than $2 per click.

Since your budget is small, focus on Google AdWords, which will give you the highest distribution. Google’s Inside AdWords blog has some great tips and resources to help you get started: If you want to invest more heavily in learning about paid search marketing through Google AdWords, check out Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords, Second Edition, by Perry Marshall and Bryan Todd (Entrepreneur Press).”

“Perry Marshall, Google AdWords Expert

Ultimately, buying traffic reduces a complex process to a simple question: “How much can you afford to pay for a visitor and still make a profit?” At first, you don’t know how many visitors you need to make a sale. To find out – fast – buy traffic and test it.

Here’s a checklist to improve visitor value:

  • Does your web page have: (1) an attention-getting, benefit-driven headline, (2) a statement of unique value, (3) an office, (4) a definite call to action, and (5) an easy way to respond?
  • Can you improve the headline? This determines whether the person continues to read or not.
  • Does page one offer something specific? Visitors need a simple, clearly written page that tells them what they’ll get if they respond today.
  • What are you offering to test response? Simply by changing the payment terms, including a bonus gift, or adding a gift-wrap option, you could double your sales.
  • Can visitors opt-in and give you their name and email address? Also get their postal address, phone, fax number. Reward them with a free gift. If you do a good job for an opt-in, you can get a 5%-40% response, and a chance to sell to them later.”
