Facebook videos are over 80% sound off, so use the WeVideo typography or similar.
70% of content is viewed via Vertical Mobile Viewing so create videos that fit.
Pro Tip In choosing a video Topic, you may wish to start from the Facebook Ads Manager, and search specific interests FIRST, then create specifically related videos for those people.
For example people that love snakes, are more likely to click on your “King Cobra, Extinction Prevention... Why?” video…
Communicate urgency with theworldcounts.com environment statistics.
Pick Your First Topic
Dive into interesting facts, figures and images to create Attention Getting Videos. Introduce People to something Amazing about Nature or a way to be more resourcefully green.
Capturing Attention and stopping the scroll, is often the Video’s Main purpose with Facebook.
With YouTube use Collective Commons Free Videos. See the Filter in the image below.
Just click through to enable Collective Commons
Find a down-loader and download one of these Free Open Licence Videos from YouTube.
If you really want to use a snippet of someone's video that is not open source, ask permission to use it for PaidForGood, and you may form a Collaboration where both of you can use the video!
Important: Use Large Text on Vertical Frame Videos because most people will see your video ad from their phone. Check with a View on a Mobile View if creating on desktop.

Social Media Marketing Best Practices
By Bonfire Media
Jump Right To Best practices for:
The Ten Member Goal:
Whether spending $100, $1,000, or $1 per day to start, it’s your business, you decide what’s prudent, feasible and good for you.
Get to 10 Partners and start scaling-up by spending the resulting $139 per week ($600/Month) income on increasing ad spend to get to 50 Members and $3,000 per month.
10 Referred Partners are worth $7,200 per year.
50 Referred Partners are worth $36,000 per year.
That’s how much in Donations you also created...!...!...!...
Getting 10 Members ($600 monthly) is just grease for the Gears. But once you have the grease, the Gears Can Move, and turn slow into fast! Remember the 23,000,000 seeds, in just 3 crop cycles!
Recurring Compounding Income. Broadcast Seeding!
So our goal is to get you to $600 monthly income so you can reinvest to get more.
This means your new monthly income is $3,000. This is the “I might quit my job faze“ for most people. After investing $3,000 into paid advertising, you probably will.
Just let the social media giants guide you through the process, just click on “make an ad” and ask Google any questions.
Remember to input your landing page URL as the destination for the ad, and place your PaidForGood Tracking Link from your Partner Center back-office as the destination for the Call-To-Action Button on that page.
Congratulations! You Just Completed The PaidForGood Training!
