How to build a custom audience on Facebook.

If you’ve done your homework and you’ve got a list of people who have purchased from you, how can you use that information to start building an audience on Facebook? Is that the best way to start building your custom audience or is there a better way? According to Rick Mulready, that is exactly what Facebook wants you to do! Once you’ve uploaded that information, then you can start building what's called a “Lookalike” audience list that you can use to start broadening your reach. While “Cold traffic targeting” is still a good approach to use, Rick is convinced that this approach is the best way to get your brand started on Facebook.
