When you promote a post on Facebook, you have minimal control over your bid type, budget, promotion period and interest targeting. It’s a cookie cutter solution that only allows you to bid with Optimized CPM, giving you a handful of budget options for a campaign that will run for up to three days.
As great as these ads are, I want more control. I want to create multiple targeting options of my ad to see what is most efficient. Sometimes the audience I want to reach with my organic post isn’t the same as the audience I’m willing to pay to reach.
I often have people ask me how to edit Facebook Promoted Posts. You can’t.
The purpose of this post is to step you through exactly how you’d recreate a Promoted Post in Power Editor to give you the control that you need.
