Introducing Facebook Marketing For Smart People

by Adrienne Smith on May 7, 2012

Facebook Marketing For Smart PeopleI have a really wonderful treat for you today…  Oh yes and it’s all about Facebook.  This is the post I had actually promised you last week.  So let me explain.

Faissal Al-Haithami of is one of my blogging buddies.  If you’ve ever visited his site then you know he’s very knowledgeable when it comes to Facebook.   I stumbled upon his blog one day and the more I visited, the more I learned.

If you are on Facebook at all then you know how important it is to connect with people the “right way”.  Especially when you’re creating your Facebook Fan Page.

Back in February I wrote a post announcing that I had finally created my Facebook Fan Page!  I shared with all of you that the reason I had waited so long was because I wanted to go through Amy Porterfield’s FBInfluence course.  She definitely is someone who really knows a lot about Facebook.  I wanted the inside scoop before I just jumped in and boy did I learn a lot.

Facebook Marketing For Smart People

Faissal contacted me a short time back to let me know that he was creating his first product and yes, it’s called “Facebook Marketing For Smart People“.

It’s a 141 page eBook chalked full of fabulous information.  The funny thing is that not only did he cover the majority that Amy’s course did but I even learned a few more things.  Now here’s the kicker.  Amy’s course if $97 and Faissal’s is $27.  Huh!!!

But I also have a little surprise for you but first let me share with you everything he has stuffed into this one eBook.  As you will notice, it’s a LOT.

What Did I Tell Ya

See what I mean!  He is really giving you all the scoop guys…

His product was suppose to launch last Monday but we all know that things don’t always go as planned. Instead, it is now live and for a limited time only you can get it for only $19.  I know, I think he’s nuts to offer it for the low price of $27 myself but to give it away for less then that!  Wow…

So if you didn’t spend the money for Amy’s course and you’d like to know how to get your Facebook presence up there with all the big names, I highly recommend you grab Faissal’s eBook while he’s practically giving it away.

Grab >>> Facebook Marketing For Smart People

Facebook Mastery

Remember, if you want to learn how to get more fans to your Facebook Fan Page, how to get them interacting, what to share, when to share it and much much more, be sure to grab Faissal’s eBook while it’s dirt cheap.  I have no doubt that you’ll regret that decision.

If you enjoyed this post then be sure to comment below and spread the love. I’m not bashful, I’ll ask. You know it’s greatly appreciated!

Hey Adrienne,

Back after a long time! Was away for a friends wedding!

I love Faisal’s site. He always has something wonderful to offer and has so much to tell about Facebook! There are so many things to learn from him!

The book is definitely a worthwhile read especially for business owners who want that extra punch through Facebook!

Glad to be back! :)

Hey Hajra,

Welcome back, it’s been really quite without you around girl. Hope you had an excellent time.

I love Faissal’s site too and he sure knows his stuff doesn’t he! I’m always amazed at the content he continues to deliver. I’m so happy for him that he’s created his first product and I must say, it is chalked full of goodies.

Thank you for your comment and I know you’re one he included as well.

Enjoy your week!

Hey Hajra, I was wondering where you went. Glad to have you back girl!


4 Lisa
May 7, 2012 at 8:23 AM

Thanks for sharing this Adrienne. I had not heard of him before so I will be checking this out and may purchase the eBook. I could use the help in this area, who can’t improve, right? And you are rocking it on Facebook! So you must have learned some great things.


5 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 8:37 AM

Hey Lisa,

You haven’t met Faissal yet? Girl, you’re missing out. Be sure and check out his blog too because he’s just a wealth of information. Mostly on Facebook but he’s now venturing out to more social media platforms as well.

I was extremely impressed with what he shared here having already been through Amy’s course. The only difference I saw was she did videos and he did the written word.

I’ve learned a lot and it’s paying off so if you’re interested, check it out.

Thanks Lisa and you have a great week!

May 7, 2012 at 8:28 AM

Good Morning Adrienne!

Faissal’s book sounds like just what I need! I have put off creating a Facebook Fan Page, and I definitely need one. Your recommendation of this product comes at the right time. Looking forward to getting the ebook and creating my page. Stay tuned!


7 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 8:38 AM

Good morning Jamella and I do hope it’s been a good one for you already.

He’ll help you get that going and share with you what you need to be doing as well. Glad to hear that you’re going to move in that direction and finally create a fan page. I know that it can really help a lot with moving you in the right direction.

Thanks for your comment Jamella and you enjoy your week okay!

May 7, 2012 at 8:35 AM

Hi Adrienne,

Wow, now you know that I sure need this!

I am rather lame still when it comes to social media. As a matter of fact, until now I didn’t think I was involved nearly enough for me to create and fan page yet.

I have gotten Faissal giveaway ebook to create fan page a while back, but then I ran into some stumbling blocks that stopped me in my course. Just some things that didn’t came up as the book explained it should :) So, not being a tech geek by any mean, I just dropped it.

Now, I really want this book. I am sure I can use this and it’s really a gift price.

Thanks for this Adrienne.


9 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 8:47 AM

Hi Sylviane,

So you’re finally going to dive in and create that fan page. Good for you Sylviane. Now you know if you run into any problems that Faissal would help you so you should have just given him a shout. Heck, I’ll help you so don’t be bashful. The entire process really isn’t hard at all but you need to have everything in place as far as a schedule to start interacting with people. But heck, you’re really good with that girl.

I know you’ll find it extremely helpful so you go girl! :-) Here’s to your Facebook success…



10 Sylviane Nuccio
May 8, 2012 at 6:25 AM

I’ve just purchased the book, Adrienne!

Can’t wait to read it now :) Yes, since I already know faissal I will sure shout him an email if I run into a problem. It’s time for me to REALLY take advantage of those social media sites.

Thanks for letting us know :)


11 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 9:19 AM

Congratulations Sylviane, I’m so happy to hear that. You won’t be disappointed I know and don’t be bashful to ask him any questions if you run into something you’re not sure about. I have a feeling it will all be pretty self explanatory but you just never know.

I’m very excited about you and can’t wait to see what you’ll be sharing with us.

I appreciate your support and you have an awesome day as well. :-)



12 Harleena Singh
May 7, 2012 at 8:45 AM

Loved the treat Adrienne!

Oh yes, Faisaal’s blog is really full of information about Facebook and he does come up with new things each time. His course surely does sound interesting and it’s at that low a cost as compared to Amy’s!!

And there’s quite a lot he’s covering in the book too, especially the part about ways to generate more fans that I think everyone would be interested in. :) Never heard about facebook contests, sounds interesting too.

I had no idea whatsoever about the facebook places for local business , marketplace, nor the advertising system, though I have heard people really find them useful. Ahh…and the wonderful tips from those wonderful people with creative minds would surely be worth reading and learning from, which of course incldes you too. :)

Heading right over to read more about the given link about his eBook now.

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful source of information with all of us, which I know coming from you means it must be really good. :)


13 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 9:02 AM

Thanks Harleena, so happy to hear that and that you also visit Faissal’s blog. He does know his stuff doesn’t he. I’m happy to have someone like him that I can rely on to bring me up to date with things on Facebook.

I was blown away at everything he covered and he does give you some great tips of things like what you mentioned, how to get fans. Plus he covers how to keep them coming back for more which is what we all want.

I appreciate that Harleena because you know, I get quite a few emails from people wanting me to promote their product on my blog. People I’m not that familiar with or whose blogs I’ve never visited. I’m wondering if they have success approaching people in that way to promote their products. Me personally I’ve either used the product myself or have been through the course and know what it covers and if I believe it’s beneficial or not.

Since having gone through Amy’s, I can definitely tell you that Faissal’s is worth the price. And more!!! :-)

Thank you Harleena and for sharing my posts. You’re one in a million.

Hi Adrienne, I’m a big fan of Faissal. His blog is very helpful in learning about Facebook tools, tips and tricks. Just when I was wondering where he had disappeared to, his book appears.

Thanks for sharing this valuable information, Adrienne. Facebook is such a powerful medium, it’s helpful to learn how we can make the most of it.

Thanks to Faissal for bringing this book to us and thank you, Adrienne, for spreading the word!


15 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 9:34 AM

Hi Carolyn,

I’m so happy to hear that. I believe Faissal stumbled upon my blog one day so you know me, I had to go check out his site. He really does know Facebook and it’s kind of funny actually but I would purchase a course and then Faissal would share some tips that were in that course. He really gives away the goods and he’s really packed this eBook full of really helpful information if you’re looking to make a bigger splash on Facebook.

Glad he’s one of your favorites too Carolyn.

Enjoy your week young lady…

Darn, I guess I’ll have to wait until Facebook Marketing for Dummies hits the stands, huh? If that don’t beat all……….

I think I need to see what our corporate page looks like and what we are doing. Interesting information however.

Thanks for sharing; this will help many.


17 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 9:37 AM

Maybe you should write the Facebook Marketing for Dummies Bill. I have no doubt you know a whole lot more than you’re letting us think.

Who is doing the upkeep of the corporate site? You? 😉


18 Richard May 7, 2012 at 10:27 AM

Hi Adrienne, Congrats on your first facebook fanpage! I must admit, I need to polish up on my social media skills. While I do have a facebook page and a twitter account with a decent amount of followers, I have trouble keeping up with engagement. This has much to do with my time constraints with having a regular job as well as trying to run my blog. I think this may come down to time management as well. But I definitely see the advantages of having good active social media accounts such as a facebook fan page.


19 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 10:45 AM

Hi Richard,

Thanks but it’s actually my second one. I ran one for awhile with another area I was involved in. Kind of like a learning experience and it didn’t go as well. Which is why when I created my main blog fan page I wanted to make sure I did this one right. I know that a lot of people throw them up but then do nothing with them. Well heck, why put them up then. That’s certainly not going to look very good for you.

In all honestly, it doesn’t take that much time to interact with people on Facebook. I know you have a full time job outside of what you do online so your time is limited. But if you schedule that time to do social then you’ll find it much more helpful. It can benefit you in the long run but if it’s an area you’d rather not concentrate on then you need to stay focused on the areas that bring you the most benefit.

Thanks Richard for sharing that. I hope you have a great week.



20 Sonia
May 7, 2012 at 10:33 AM

Wow…talk about an ebook packed with information. I was already sold after the 3rd paragraph from you! I have been to his site and he is super knowledgeable about Facebook. My FB page is growing, but I know I can always use some help with additional parts that I am know used too. He really went out of his way to get it right and give people information that we can “act” on. Thanks for sharing this with us girl!


21 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 10:48 AM

I know, he really did it didn’t he Sonia. When I put what was included I thought my goodness, what a post. Glad to hear I had you after the third paragraph. lol…

I have no doubt that he can share some tips to give you another boost but your fan page rocks Sonia. I can’t imagine you learning even more. I’m going to have to watch out then. I’m way behind you anyway but dang girl.

Faissal really did share everything here so I’m sure you would definitely benefit from what he’s sharing. If you grab it, let me know how it goes now. I want to know all the scoop! 😉

Have a great week Sonia and I always appreciate your input.

May 7, 2012 at 10:36 AM

Hi Adrienne,

Absolutely a no brainer for anyone who’s even thinking of creating a Facebook Fan page. I’ve still to sort my blog one out so this has come in really handy, thanks I’ve been over and got mine :)

141 pages of great content that will save me weeks of scratching my head.

It’s good to see you got a section in the eBook as well Adrienne :)

Thanks again bringing it to our attention.

Respect and Regards,


23 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 10:53 AM

Hi Barry,

it’s a much more inexpensive route to take Barry if you want to learn how to really start getting some activity on your fan page. Glad to hear you’ve already grabbed yours. You won’t be disappointed.

I’m happy to see that Faissal put a few of us in the book as well. I continue to be honored to be among some of these great bloggers.

Thank you Barry for your comment and I do hope you have a splendid week.



24 Cat Alexandra
May 7, 2012 at 10:55 AM

Hi Adrienne,

Now this sounds like a great book and something that I will do well to go through. I’ll be the first to admit that I could learn a ton about how to better manage my fanpage. Getting fans hasn’t been the issue, it’s more about time managing the engagement aspects of it better.

Thanks for sharing this great stuff! Sounds like something that will be a good project for me once I finish the 100 day challenge!

Happy Monday to you, my friend! Rainy and grey here but we’ve been needing the rain so bad that I’m just enjoying it and am happy that the snow didn’t make it down here (it’s been snowing in the high country since this weekend in some places).


PS – How did your intro/outro turn out? I can NOT wait to see it!!


25 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 11:04 AM

Hi Cat,

Faissal really did pack it full of great stuff Cat as I outlined in the post. I was surprised he put so much information in but that’s how it should be. Over deliver you know. I have no doubt that if you want to learn a few things about keeping your fans engaged, this will help.

I know that rain is definitely needed at times. It’s been rather warm here lately but what else is new. We were really enjoying the nice spring weather but it doesn’t last long. It’s not hot and sunny but a beautiful day none the less.

Thanks Cat and enjoy your week girl.


P.S. She’s not done. For some reasons she just has a problem with following directions. Huh!!!


26 Cat Alexandra
May 7, 2012 at 2:43 PM

I agree with you that it’s important that products really do pack a value-punch! I have read my share of diluted value products that kind of talk around subjects, but don’t really tell you where to go and what to do. I’m not surprised that Faissal did such a great job, I have always been so impressed at what he offers right in his blog posts to all who just happen to pass by.

Yes, the rain has been needed badly here. I’ve been paying attention to local news and seeing how stressful lack of rain has been for local farmers. So I say to Mother Nature, bring it on, girl!!

I’m glad your’e enjoying a beautiful day!


PS – Whoa! I’m sorry that she’s been giving you difficulty on your order. I’m a bit surprised since she was so quick and effective with mine…but then again, mine was pretty simple and followed closely to a template she had, so that might have made mine a bit quicker. I hope that it’s all resolved for you soon and that you love the work!


27 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 2:53 PM

I agree Cat, there are so many products I’ve purchased over the years that I was very dissatisfied with. Kind of sad really but like you said, Faissal packs every post with awesome information and I’m so happy that his eBook delivers the same.

Your weather sounds like our summer last year. It was so dry here and we needed rain so bad. Luckily for us we’ve had plenty since last fall so things are looking much better although our foundations took a horrible beating with that dry spell. Rain is needed but flooding, not so much. Hope it eases up soon.

Thanks Cat, I am enjoying my day!

By the way, she finally finished it. I even sent her an example to go by and I swear she did everything I asked her not to do. Dang… But all is well now, finally and I’m pleased with it. Now I need to use it.



28 Cat Alexandra
May 7, 2012 at 6:41 PM

Glad you’re enjoying your day! And so happy to hear that after much ado, you finally have your new intro/outro! I can’t wait to catch a peek at that!

Cat 😉

May 7, 2012 at 10:56 AM

Hi Adrienne,

I had never heard of Faissal until now, so thank you for introducing us to him.

I’ve just had a quick look at his blog and have added it to my ‘Favourites’. He seems like a true Facebook marketing expert.

His eBook sounds great as well. I’m going to look further into it… It seems like a real bargain.


30 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 11:06 AM

Hi Hiten,

Well, you’ll have to stop by his blog and say Hi. You will definitely learn a lot from him Hiten.

He definitely knows a lot about Facebook and he runs a few sites for a company he works for so he has to know his stuff. I’m just learned so much from him and he’s extremely helpful too.

Thanks Hiten and I do believe it is a steal. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by and always a pleasure to see you. You enjoy your week okay!



31 Ilka Flood
May 7, 2012 at 11:21 AM

Hi Adrienne,

Wow, this post was chuck-full with info! I’m familiar with Faisal’s blog and I’m also on his email list. Facebook is constantly changing…almost seems like a living thing…so it’s important to stay on top of things.

While I do have a fan page I question sometimes if it’s really worth it for someone that is not a guru, top income earner, small business or a company. For me personally, since I used my profile page for business from the very start, most everything is happening there.

Thanks for the great info though!



32 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 11:46 AM

Hi Ilka,

Glad to hear that you’re a regular visitor to Faissal’s blog and also on his list. It’s good to keep informed with how things are changing.

Are you kidding me! It’s perfect for us because it’s the best way to get your fans interested in what you’re doing and you can hold contests or as you know, promote your products there where it’s frowned upon on your profile page. The thing about having a fan page is to get your Facebook friends to like you page because you share different things there that you don’t on your profile page. Once you start building up a following, people will start paying attention. That’s for sure.

I appreciate your comment and your opinion. I can see where you would wonder whether it’s worth it or not. Only you know for sure girl.



33 Dee Ann Rice
May 7, 2012 at 12:46 PM


Faissal’s book sound great. I have not made a fan page because I do not really know how to get fans to the page. I was thinking of making a page for when I release my product.

This looks like just what I need in order to get a fan page up and running the right way.

Thanks for doing the review.

Dee Ann


34 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 1:27 PM

Hi Dee Ann,

It might come in handy to get one up and start getting some fans to your page so that when you do release your product you can perhaps run a contest and give one away for free. That’s a great incentive to not only get people to like your page but get them interested in what you have to offer.

I found Faissals book really informative so if you decide to want to learn how to get fans, he can sure help with that.

Thanks Dee Ann and hope you’re enjoying your day so far.



35 Peggy Baron
May 7, 2012 at 1:04 PM

Hi Adrienne,

Thanks for telling me about Faissal! I’ve been really diving into the Facebook page I recently created in one of my niches. I’m finding it’s easier to keep on top of than blogging, and I’m enjoying the interaction with people who visit. I’ve also been doing some FB ads for it. I’ll be interested to hear what Faissal has to say on all things Facebook pages. :)



36 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 1:39 PM

Hi Peggy,

I’m so happy to hear that you that you are enjoying the interaction on the fan pages. I love it myself although I still love the interaction here on my blog just as much. Okay, probably more but I can meet more people on Facebook it seems. Hope you’re doing well with the ads. I’ll venture back into that here soon myself.

Thanks for sharing that Peggy. Always good to hear from you and how things are going.

Enjoy your week.



37 Teddy May 7, 2012 at 1:23 PM

Thanks for the information. Will check out his course. Really looks like he did a good job putting the information together. Thanks again for the heads up.



38 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 1:41 PM

You are so welcome Teddy and he did an excellent job of putting this together. I know that you’ll benefit from it greatly if you chose to go that route.

Thank you for your comment and enjoy your week.



39 Tonya Stephens May 7, 2012 at 1:25 PM

Wow that is a lot of information. I will check it out and I love the price.

It’s my pleasure Tonya and I do hope you’ll check it out. I think it’s a steal for anyone who really wants to learn. I appreciate you taking a peak.

Glad you enjoyed the post and my spin! :-)

You have a great week okay!



41 Dia May 7, 2012 at 6:56 PM

Hi Adrienne,

Excellent post! I know Faisal and I’ve read his book, it has many good tips on marketing on facebook. It is the most comprehensive book about marketing on facebook. You always know what to introduce to your readers Adrienne. 😉 Thanks for sharing my friend


42 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 7:59 PM

Hey Dia,

So happy to hear that you know Faissal and you’ve also read his book and agree with me. He did an excellent job didn’t he!

I appreciate your comment Dia and that you approve of what I’ve shared here. So glad we’re on the same page. :-)


43 Colleen Kelly
May 7, 2012 at 9:03 PM

Hey Adrienne,

I can’t believe there is THAT MUCH to a Facebook Fan page. Holy Cow! It’s been crazy busy around here lately but I sure will think about the course and book. Thanks for bringing more great info to us. I know I say this over and over but I really do learn so much from your blog AND YOUR Fanpage!. You always have such great articles, posts and the best part and I really do with all honesty and look forward to it are the questions on your Facebook fanpage! lol They’re fun! I think you’re doing pretty good with yours. But always more to learn right? :) Thanks so much Adrienne!


44 Adrienne Smith
May 7, 2012 at 9:36 PM

Hey Colleen,

Yeah, there is a lot to really not only getting things set up but what’s all involved. That’s why I waited to create my fan page because I wanted to do it right. Now I still don’t spend as much time there as I should but I love the questions too. I learned that one from Amy’s course and it’s a great way to get to know your fans you know. That’s what it’s all about and everyone seems to enjoy them so thanks for sharing that.

Glad you’ve been busy and hope it’s all been good!

Thanks Colleen, always enjoy seeing your smiling face.

May 7, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Hi Adrienne,

You’ve introduced me to another interesting site. I don’t know Faissal Al-Haithami of fansbridge, so will go and check him out. I didn’t take Amy’s course, but follow her articles and have attended a few webinars. There is a lot to know about how to make Facebook work for your site. The ebook sounds interesting and what a great price! Take care.


46 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 8:53 AM

Hi Cathy,

I have a feeling you’re going to enjoy Faissal’s site. He really does share a lot of helpful information on Facebook and social media. Unlike Amy and Mari, he just hasn’t gotten his name out there enough yet but to me, he’s right up there with them regarding his knowledge.

There is a lot to making your fan page successful and I have no doubt if that’s what you’d like to achieve, he can help.

Thanks Cathy for your comment and I really appreciate it. You enjoy your day!



47 Jack
May 7, 2012 at 11:44 PM

It sounds like a wonderful opportunity. I will have to go check it out. It can’t hurt to get more information and insight. Your blog is always a wealth of resources, never lack for good information here.


48 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 8:55 AM

Hey Jack,

Thanks Lauren and you’re right, so many people have no idea what’s all involved in actually getting fans to your site and then keeping them. This ste[-by-step guide is extremely helpful.

Appreciate your comment.

Hi Adrienne,
I’ve been spending a lot more time on Facebook these days and seeing some great results from it. My fan base is growing and I’m getting more interaction on my page. I have Faissal to thank for most of this. His site is a wealth of information when it comes to best practices and insider tips for using Facebook. Just like you, I was really excited to be a part of his book launch and I’m really proud of the way it turned out.
I advise anyone to get this book, even if you have a Facebook page already, there is so much you can learn from Faissal. Great stuff.

Hi Ileane,

It really does help when you have a few tips that can help you move in the right direction right Ileane? I mean there were some things that I learned about interacting with my fans and how to get more fans to take interest in what you have to share. I love how you’ve built up your fan page around the Lugure apps so anyone wanting to take that up a notch definitely wants to read your post.

Was thrilled to see you a part of Faissal’s book as well and so excited that you enjoy what he shares over at his place too. Here is to Faissal’s success!



55 Latha May 8, 2012 at 7:19 AM

Adrienne not buying now, but it is a good price. I am tempted but i guess i will wait this out :)


56 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 9:21 AM

This is the lowest price it’s ever going to be so if it’s something you think you need I would go ahead. If not, then by all means don’t. But I appreciate your comment and stopping by today.

Thanks Latha!

Now that’s good – I also know Faissal and am on his list so I have been following his free product he did a while ago in preparation for this and you are right – he really knows his stuff and he’s an all round great guy too!

I had noticed you had “upped your game” on facebook just lately Ms Smith! Great job – taking action is what it’s all about. I also just hopped over to your page as I realised I had not been over there in a while and it looks really good!!
Sharing this now! Great info!


58 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 9:26 AM

That’s wonderful to hear Nicky that you also follow Faissal and think so highly of him. He’s very impressive wouldn’t you agree! I was amazing at all the value he shares on his blog and I took so many notes it’s not even funny. He’s so helpful and just a really great guy too.

I do my best Nicky although I could spend more time there. Just not enough hours in the day for me to be everywhere I’m afraid. But I do have the interaction going and I really enjoy that as do my fans so it’s really been fun. You know me, I love sharing good helpful information so I do hope it benefits someone. Glad to see you stop by today too, it’s always a pleasure.

Thanks for sharing this Nicky, I appreciate that and you! Now enjoy your day and have a really great week.

Honestly I’ve never really liked facebook all that much. I refused to even got on it until I got into marketing. I bought a facebook product a while back, I think it was for $299 or something. It was worth it(for a lot of reasons), so this product is an absolute steal at this price point.

That’s quite an impressive name drop for Smart:13. Really gives the product some credibility for anyone not familiar with Faissal.


60 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 10:19 AM

There are a lot of people who didn’t care much for Facebook Micah. The only reason I joined was for business reasons but I do enjoy connecting with people I would never have gotten a chance to know otherwise.

Wow, that’s a huge price point but so glad you felt it was worth it.

Faissal has really shared a lot of value on his blog and not to pack even more great information into this huge read is fabulous. I was so impressed after reading through it that how could I not support him with this. He’s very deserving.

Thank you Micah, I appreciate your kind words.

You enjoy your day okay!

Hey Adrienne,

That ebook sounds amazing. I haven’t been reading much about Facebook marketing in a while, so I probably should do something about it. Especially since I’m working on a strategy for a client right now. But, I have to think about it for a few more days. I have been reading a lot lately, and it’s time to take action with the projects I’m currently working on.

Thanks a lot for sharing this. And I know that I should buy this, especially since you’ve contributed to it :)


62 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 12:42 PM

Hey Jens,

If you decide that you’ll be creating fan pages for clients and want to know how they can start marketing on Facebook then be sure to come back and grab this eBook. It will definitely help.

If that’s not the direction you’ll be heading then you may not need it. Either way though, it’s great information so if you know someone searching for more information about getting their fan pages out there, be sure to point them in this direction. It would be greatly appreciated.

May 8, 2012 at 3:27 PM

Well hello Adrienne, thanks for giving a great oversight into Faissal’s guide, I have several pages and one is beginning to show promise so its time to form a strategy to make the most of this traction, fortunately today I also realised what I need to focus on.

Therefore your post and his fantastic offer came at just the right time for me, now just gotta sort out some reading and strategy time.



64 Adrienne Smith
May 8, 2012 at 4:46 PM

Hey there Igor!

Happy to hear that this post came along at just the right time for you. Faissal has really shared a lot of fabulous strategies that will help take you fan page to the next level. A lot of what I had already learned in Amy’s course which is why I was so impressed. Hope you find it just as beneficial as I did.

Best of luck to you Igor and thanks for your comment.

Have a great week.

Hey Adrienne,

Seems like an awesome book to buy (I will keep this book in my mind because I really do need to do something about my FB fan page – Lot of times, I read some article about FB marketing, and plan to do something on FB, but I never do it.

Appreciate you sharing it (And pointing to Faissal’s blog; Let me see what I can learn from this blog :D).



66 Adrienne Smith
May 9, 2012 at 10:38 AM

Hi Jeevan,

I believe he’s only doing this special price for a few more days if you want to get it while it’s dirt cheap. He does share a lot of great advice on his blog but not all the scoop. He saved it for his course.. 😉 But you’ll definitely learn a lot over at his place Jeevan so enjoy learning.

Thanks for your comment and hope your week is going well.



67 Rizwan Sultan May 9, 2012 at 11:51 AM

Hey Andrienne

Well I was regular reader of Faisal Fansbridge blog and really learn too much good Social media marketing tips from his blog recently he introduced his books for Facebook marketing very cheap rate I know he really present great knowledge in his charged content.


68 Adrienne Smith
May 9, 2012 at 11:57 AM

Hi Rizwan,

I’m so happy to hear that you’re a regular reader of Faissal’s blog. Yeah, he definitely does share a lot doesn’t he! Great stuff and now he’s giving away the goods for dirt cheap. Hope you took him up on his offer.

Thanks for sharing that and good luck to you.



69 Rizwan Sultan May 9, 2012 at 2:37 PM

Yes I am Looking forward towards it he offered $19 for starting price of his books and limit it for 7days after it he increased the price up-to $25.


70 Adrienne Smith
May 9, 2012 at 2:41 PM

Actually, it increase up to $27 but that’s still a great price…

May 9, 2012 at 12:09 PM


You’re too nice! I looked Faissai’s website and am very impressed by his content. First, I’m not going to lie by saying I”m a little bit envious you have the ability to network with so many other bloggers – gaining so much information. Also, I’m happy you’re doing it to help all of us (me). Can’t thank you enough; I get paid on Friday! Does this mean when I purchase the book, I’ll also get a short little message from you? haha. I hope you have a beautiful day!


72 Adrienne Smith
May 9, 2012 at 12:24 PM

Hey Jonathan,

Ah, that’s so sweet of you to say Jonathan. I’m so touched!

Faissal does share a lot of really great content on his site as you just noticed. He knows his stuff now and I’m SO glad we bumped into each other.

Jonathan, I’m extremely grateful that I have connected with so many wonderful people. It’s all started with I got outside my comfort zone and started interacting with other bloggers. It’s just grown from that point on. I love helping others because sometimes we just need someone to care.

I think Faissal controls all of that but you let me know and I’ll definitely send you a message. It would be my pleasure.

Thanks Jonathan and you also have a beautiful day!



73 Carol Lynn

Adrienne, that is quite a long list of amazing topics to cover! This is one book I have to check out. He should charge $27 just for that table of contents! It’s a lot of work to put that stuff together and I know how expensive the training seminars can be. I hope it is a successful book.

I love hearing what people have to say about this type of marketing because it’s so open to interpretation and there are different ideas flying everywhere. Plus, even though it feels like life didn’t exist before Facebook, it’s relatively new in terms of marketing. There are so many things to learn and explore. And of course by the time we figure anything out, Facebook will go ahead and change something again! What do you think comes after timeline??

I also added Faissal’s blog to my RSS list. Sounds like we could have a lot in common so thank you for introducing him to me!


74 Adrienne Smith
May 9, 2012 at 6:20 PM

Hi Carol,

I know, just the table of contents blew me away as I started reading I became more and more impressed with everything he was sharing. He put a lot of work into this project and I admire him for charging such a ridiculous low price but I know he would much prefer everyone getting their hands on it an that it will help them move forward with Facebook.

You are so right about the way others interpret how to use this platform which is why it’s taken me a little longer to move forward to where I cam because I don’t always understand a lot of people’s explanations. Because I had already been through Amy’s course I was pleasantly surprised to see that Faissal covered a lot of the same material. Plus a few others so that was a wonderful surprise.

Who the heck knows what Facebook will do next but trust me, it’s coming. 😉

So happy to hear that you have added Faissal’s blog to your feed. I think you’ll enjoy what he shares and you two can compare notes.

Thanks Carol!



75 Joseph Mills May 9, 2012 at 7:47 PM

Hey Adriene,

Wherever I go, I always read topic about Facebook and its good benefit of using them. Even if a man in not really smart enough but as soon as he starts using FB, I think that would be smart decision he ever made.


76 Adrienne Smith
May 9, 2012 at 8:07 PM

Well Joseph, since there are over 800 million people on Facebook I think that would be a very wise decision. Just think of all the people you would have an opportunity to come in contact with that you would have never been able to any other way. Oh, and they want what you have! Nice!!! :-)

Hi, Adrienne,

I am glad that you are recommending this great tools specifically for business people.

You are right about the cheap price! It is an amazing offer that Faissal is giving away! I have ordered my copy.

Hi Viola,

Thank you Viola and I just believe that there are a few things I’ve used and learned from that others will definitely find beneficial. Especially at this price.

I appreciate you grabbing your copy and I do know that you’ll enjoy learning.

Thank you Viola and I definitely appreciate you!



79 Adrianna Huang May 9, 2012 at 11:53 PM

Wow that looks like a great set up tips to start fb marketing. I’m really interested in buying this ebook. I’m contemplating making a little room in my budget to pick it up.


80 Adrienne Smith
May 10, 2012 at 8:23 AM

Most definitely Adrianna and hope you can find it in your budget before he raises the price. The days are counting down. :-)

May 13, 2012 at 5:26 AM

Well, I just got my copy, Adrienne. I had a fan page, but it went when Timeline was introduced and I hadn’t got round to doing anything about it. This will spur me on to getting it done soon, especially now my blog revamp is just about finished.

Enjoy the journey.



82 Adrienne Smith
May 13, 2012 at 1:16 PM

Oh that’s great Mandy and I know you’re going to find it really helpful. I know that a lot of people haven’t done much with their fan pages so I know what Faissal shares here will really help you move that in the right direction.

Thank you so much and you enjoy this journey!

June 2, 2012 at 12:21 PM

Hey Faissal,

I’m flattered really! I wanted everyone to see how you jam packed it full of great content and I was so surprised when I read through it and realized you had shared everything I had learned in that expensive course. Who wouldn’t want to snatch this one up.

I hope you’ve done well with the sales and it was my pleasure. Was happy to help.
