Launch Facebook Promoted Posts in Minutes

Facebook has made available Promoted Posts.  The idea behind promoted posts is to get your posts into the News Feed of your fans and their friends.

All promoted posts will show in the news feeds of the people who like your Page and, when they interact with the post, to their friends. These posts will be labeled as "Sponsored" in the news feed. Promoted posts will not be shown in the right-hand column of Facebook as an ad normally would.  Thus, other than the words "Sponsored" they appear as a normal post would

To create a Promoted post:

1.  Go to the sharing tool to create a post you normally would.

Note: that the budget you set for your promoted post is a lifetime budget that will run over the entire duration of your promoted post. Just like with ads, you may be billed daily to the primary funding source you’ve designated in your Ads Manager, and only for the amount that is used to run your campaign. You can view your primary funding source as well as access invoices from the gear drop-down in the "Promote" button, or from your Ads Manager.
