Facebook Advertising Webinar

Advertising with Pixel and Profit-01
Some time back I put on a webinar that talked about Facebook Advertising. It’s a 30 minute webinar and covers a variety of topics. Please note that as of this writing the video is distorted a bit. Investigation underway.

Video is quickly becoming one of the most used features on web sites today. We now have sites that are not only giving you text, but are giving you a video as well.

Some sites will add the video in there so they can sell advertising on the video to raise money for their operations. Others add video so they can more accurately explain what they want to show you. For ‘How-To’ guides, video is often the easier way to go, as many people are visual learners.

For WordPress sites I have found that Spider Video Player works well, and comes in Free or Paid varieties. You can easily set up video to run on your site using this player.

One paid application that I use is PressPlay.io.

I will store my videos on YouTube, make them unlisted, close comments, restrict stats, etc. I’ve also been known to store the videos on the server, and stream the video from there. However, as of this writing (04/25/16) I’ve been having audio issues with this method.

If you do not want to spend the money on PressPlay you always have the ability to embed your YouTube video on your site. Instructions not posted yet. If you need them, email me and I will get them online for you ASAP.

There are many things you should consider when determining if you want your WordPress site self hosted or not.

Why Choose Self Hosted

Hosting your own WordPress blog on your own servers, or possibly through a hosting provider, gives you many freedoms that you may not have with another provider. As you will see below there are times where you are restricted on what you can or can not do with your WordPress site. However, if you choose self hosted, then you can run whatever you like, since you are the one who is managing the installation. If course you may also be responsible for the backup of your data, and reinstalling it of something goes wrong, keeping up with security updates, etc.

Hosting your WordPress blog on WordPress.com has the advantages of being set up for you by WordPress, with all updates and plugins being managed by them. However, on the free versions of WordPress, your blog will have advertisements attached it it. You’d also be limited in the amount of storage space you have available to you for graphics that you could post on your blog.

A purchased WordPress plan, either from WordPress.com or another provider, gives you more options for running your site, but as the word ‘purchased’ implies, it is going to cost money.

One of the other downsides to a free WordPress.com account, or some of the other paid WordPress plans, is that you are restricted in your ability to install plugins. Various plugins are used to enhance the functionality of a web site. For example, did you notice that once you logged in the next asking you to log in disappeared? That is part of the membership plugin that is used on this site.

Using some of the free options out there wouldn’t let you install plugins. Another example is the WordPress offering from My Lead System Pro. They have supplied you with many plugins that you can use on your blog. However, they do not allow you to install your own plugins. While the selection of plugins should be enough for most people, it is not enough for everyone. In those cases you would be wanting to host your blog in a new location.
