Jim and Suzie -- you have come to the right place.   There are quite a few who have effectively used Facebook for marketing including Noah Seidenberg .   In addition to Noah you may also want to follow Anita Clark who has a Facebook Friday group.

Facebook offers some great free courses in their creative section and also their small business section. You can do a search for it in FB. 

I learned from taking online courses and then doing it over and over and over again until now I am pretty good at it. 

I just did some video ad testing and those are your best bang for your buck right now. I got video views for one penny each view this last time I ran an ad. I also have another video ad for 8 cents a view. Videos, the shorter the better for better rankings on FB and also for a higher relevance score as FB grades you on how long people watch the video. 

The AR webinar is dated but it will still give you some information but those ads they show you are not producing well because they were saturated.

Facebook will have instructions in their help section.  You can also Bing, Yahoo!, Google or use another of your favourite search engines or even look at videos on YouTube.

Make sure you are looking at current information since Facebook continuously changes their offerings and user interface.

Check AR posts via ''search'' and Utube. The information is there and it is not that complicated. There are also plenty service providers who will do it for you.

See Jeff Dowler 's response. I think in many ways, FB has adopted the Apple mode of instruction, i.e., 'Find out for Yourself'.

There are many short webinars that will help but I don't know where they can be located. I've taken them. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

Patricia Kennedy got the answer for you.
