How To Spy On Facebook Ads – Free Facebook Advertising Tool Just Released!

Hey, Miles here, in this
video, you’re going to learn how to spy on your competitor’s ads on Facebook. This is
a 100% free tool. I’m going to jump on my computer in just a moment and show you exactly
how to use this. Now this is version 3.0 of this video from me. The first one we had used
kind of outside tools. Then last year, Facebook added the Info and ads tab to the Facebook
fan pages and from looking at someone’s fan page used to be able to click on that tab
and see all of the ads that they ran, but just a couple of days ago that disappeared.
So this is the new way for you to look through this. It’s actually a better tool. It’s more
useful. I’m gonna show you exactly how to use this. Now, why would you want to spy on
your competitors ads just before we jump in, mainly because it’s going to help you identify
what their hook is, what their best performing headlines are, and it’ll give you that funnel
entrance. It allow you to get into their funnel and
you can start to see in one place their front end cold traffic offers. You’ll also be able
to find their retargeting offers and the offers that they show later inside of their funnel
which are some of the best advertising opportunities for you. Without further ado, let’s jump right
in. The tool itself is called the Facebook Ad Library and if you go to forward
slash ads Ford slash, library it’s going to automatically load and they append a little
bit of a code at the end, but just is where it’s at. From here you can notice
it’s got me logged in so I don’t know if I need to have an ad account. If you’re not
seeing this then it’s probably because you don’t have an ad account set up, but it knows
that I’ve got an ad account and then it’s got the country and it lets be sort by country. I’m going to leave it to the United States
and this tool is incredibly simple. They’ve actually made a a better to use tool. In my
personal opinion. So you just click right in here and you type in one of your competitors.
So I’m going to start with Tony Robbins here and I’m going to see if Tony Robbins has any
ads. I don’t actually know if he does, but he just did a big launch with Dean Graziosi,
so I’m, I’m guessing there might be something showing up here and you can see they’ve got
some of the page transparency stuff. They actually tell you how much is spent on a page
related to politics. So the reason they’re doing this is because of the, the weird political
stuff that’s going on. But here we are. I can see the different ads that he launched.
When he add them, I can see that they’re active, the date that they started running, and then
the actual copy itself. This is really, really powerful and I’m noticing
you could observe small things like okay, he started with a question and then he went
into a quote from someone, but if you want, you can also click the learn more button down
here, which I’ll hold control and do. It’s going to actually open that landing page associated
with that particular ad right here. So now I can start to funnel hack him. Now I can
sort of be like, okay, this is the layout. Get started. Now I can sort of model the approach
that he’s using, but I’m also paying attention to the content that’s coming out on this video.
I’m also paying attention to what he uses, his headline, et Cetera, et cetera. Now I
want to show, if you scroll down, you’re going to start to see that he has other variations.
Here’s another variation. It doesn’t start with a quote. It doesn’t have a video. It has a quiz option.
Um, and you could just kind of keep scrolling through. You can see all of the different
things that he’s promoting. There is eight ton of marketing prowess being delivered for
free. This literally Tony Robins has some of the highest paid marketers, some of the
best marketers in the world working for him. And you see it just automatically loads more.
These are all of the ads that he’s currently running, man. There is a, there’s something
to be said about the amount and volume of information available here. So once you’re
done searching one, you can come right up to this main search bar or you can click the
add library to load again. So I’m going to search another one, which is revolution golf.
So Revolution Golf is a massively large and popular, um, content website. It’s a membership
site in the golf space. It was actually bought by NBC sports recently
and you could see right here. So in the world of golf, it’s the big question is what’s the
big hook, right? What’s, what’s that thing that it’ll get the click that’ll get the optin,
that’ll get golfers excited to take a step in your direction. Well, Portia, poor short
game is a nightmare. So right here on seeing they’re running ads focused on the secret
for short games. So that’s one of the ways. And if I scroll down a little more, I’m curious,
I’m going to see something that’s more drive related. Um, he calls it the consistency killer.
So talking about killing consistency and that’s what you’re able to get in each of these.
Then obviously you can actually click on the button itself and it will take you directly
into the landing page so you can see exactly what they’ve got going on. Within the landing page, I’m going to click,
um, hold control and click to open it in a new new tab. And you can see it takes me to
one of their landing pages, the fully factor short game, and it’ll load that. And from
here you again, what’s their headline? What are they selling? What are they doing, what’s
his video, what’s on the video? Then you scroll down, you get access to all of their sales
copy. These are incredibly successful marketers. This is a, I mean this, that company was bought
for, I mean millions of dollars. I don’t know what the actual number was, but it was a very,
very, very large number, um, that that was purchased for. And then I’m going to search
for another one called daily burn. So if you’re in the, um, in the health and wellness niche,
uh, in the fitness space, the daily burn is a very popular membership website as well. That is extremely successful. So I can go
here and I can see exactly what ads they’re doing. So they got the uh, hit the high intensity
interval training, yoga bar. You can see exactly what they’re talking about and the different
ads that they have. They have a lot of different visuals so you can pay attention to the visuals.
I’m noticing these are mostly short. They’ve got the green check marks with bullet points
here, giving away a free 30 day trial. The, the number and volume of brilliant ideas that
you’re able to obtain from here are quite extensive. Um, and this is the tool. This
is how you use the tool. Again, it’s forward slash, ads, Ford slash, library. And
I recommend that you take time to really, truly go deep into your competitor’s fan pages
and really find what ads are they running, what funnel entrances are they leveraging,
what hooks, what optins and what products are they promoting via their paid ads. Then I recommend you also branch out a little
bit beyond your core niche because if you’re one of the better marketers in your niche
or there aren’t many great marketers in your niche, you can go look at the other pages
like the daily Burns of the world, the Revolution Golf, those niche websites that are absolute
dominating forces in their space, and you can start to synthesize new ideas for your
space. And that’s been some of my most powerful marketing knowledge is when I get an Aha moment
by analyzing something that’s totally irrelevant to my main core business, but yet it sparks
that idea, that inspiration to test something new and all of a sudden I’ve got a new Hook,
a new headline, a new optin funnel, and it all starts to work better than what I was
doing because of that synthesis of brilliant ideas from outside of my core niche. That’s why Jay Abraham is one of the most
successful business mentors in the world is because he’s worked in hundreds of different
niches and he’s just borrowed ideas from one niche to the next and moved them around, and
that’s why he’s created his success in this tool, summarizes the most valuable ads from
the most valuable advertising platform in 2019 and beyond. Right here in one place.
It’s searchable, it’s easy to use. Go forth, run with this. I hope you enjoy it. Let me
know if you have any questions in the comments. Give me a thumbs up like it. Subscribe, hit
the Bell, do what you do. I appreciate you and I’ll catch you on the next video. Cheers.

  1. GOLD!!! I’m really liking your videos Miles and am very appreciative. Thank you so much for your generosity. -Donna

  2. Omg I was just searching for ways to spy ads today as all the sites I used during my last launch were down…now I understand why! What a perfect timing for this video Miles! 😍

  3. It doesn't give all pages. like most of e commerce shops…. should we wait a bit longer so facebook reference all pages?

  4. Believe me mile is most most most genuine original loyal youtuber all over internet . His tricks and tips are 1000 % important . He is king and he is best ..

    THANKS A TON I love you

  5. I found it several days ago. I could not believe it. Hopefully, the 4th generation will show the social proof associated with the ad and the targeting. Lol!!

  6. Miles this is some insane value! Do you mind if I make a video on this topic on my channel? I'd like to credit you as well 😁👍

  7. Hi Miles, The Tony Robins total spent by Page on ads. Is that $2,086 per day or all together added up? I'm a little confused

  8. Miles,to take it a step further, if you're already on a FB Page you can still find the ads info by clicking on the "Page Transparency (see more)" section found on the right hand side below the "About" section on desktop or directly below the "About" section on mobile and then by clicking on "Ads From This Page".

    This way, you can by-pass having to go to the FB Ads Library search link you show in your video if you're already on the page, or if you see the sponsored ad come up in your newsfeed. You just go to the page and click the “Page Transparency” section.

  9. While this is very valuable … I wish there was a way to see the targeted demographics, etc. that are being chosen by the Facebook advertisers for each of the ads.

  10. Thank you, Miles! I love your reliability! Great info. You always keep us 3-5 steps ahead with strategies, before they become widely implemented!

  11. I already looked at the competition for inspiration. What a fantastic tool! Thank you Miles for demonstrating how to use it!

  12. I have a question about retargeting
    I have a brick and mortar and when I retargeting people who watched my Martial Arts video I posted it comes to less than a 1000 and fb tells me it’s too small of an audience.

    What do you suggest then?

  13. Hi Miles, thanks for the great video! Would all these ads be kept for only a certain time frame? If the ads are gone once the advertisers stop their ads, is there any way to capture the ads permanently? Thanks again!

  14. Thanks for the info on using this tool. However, i notice that this tool is only good for current ads? And not a history of fb ads, so there is a limitation. Also, doesn't work for smaller competitors, I can't any results for (example) a limousine service, comes up with non relevant ads. Any suggestions on how to better filter and get better results?

  15. Dude! you are on top of things. Made a Fan out of me! Thanks for the fresh content! I was wondering where the info and ads section went to.

  16. I stupidly signed my page onto someone’s business manager and they removed me as an admin, is there anyway i can get my page back? i’ve contacted facebook and waiting for a reply?

  17. Hey miles thanks for the update , how can we see the audience they target ?

  18. Dude you rock! I love you! thank you for this information! I clicked on your ad on the YouTube homepage on mobile so it cost you money but it has REALLY helped me. This is JUST what I needed! I've been struggling for ages!

  19. “Now, why would you want to spy on your competitor’s ads? … what their best performing headlines are”
    You actually can not see into those analytics

  20. @Miles Beckler great video and thanks for sharing, it was very insightful. Quick question for you, how would someone get hold of you or your office to discuss doing some work with your company.

  21. I don't even know where to start with this but i will just say.. Thank you papa! great content… ALWAYS!!!!

  22. When you are on the Ad Library is there a way to go straight to the actual ad so you can see the shares, likes and comments? Thanks

  23. Thanks for the amazing content MIles! Do you know how we find on fb ads library how many ads are running for a specific keyword? I´ve seen a pic of someone´s screen that has searched for "smart watches" and it showed "320 results" for that. I´ve tried out for the same and it showed 2 results and only for politics stuff

  24. Miles, is there a way to check engagement for the ads? We used to be able to see the number of likes and shares on a post but it doesn't appear to be accessible from the ad library.

  25. Tony Robbins, Revolution Golf: All first world advertisers selling first world things. I'd like to see what they are selling in Zimbabwe, Malawi, or Kenya.

  26. Thanks for this insight Miles — question, in a previous video you said that you were building Ad Sets based on "Interests that you gathered from your competitors". I watched the video on Audience Insights, but I was wondering if you had some other video that went specific on the individual competitor. If not, all good and this is awesome value.

  27. Miles Beckler, the free training you offer through these videos is invaluable. My whole approach to Facebook advertising has changed and the results are very positive.

  28. Hi,

    Thanks for the highly informative video. A real value-add.

    One question. Say I find an FB ad for a dropshipping product with a high engaement. How do I find when the ad was launched first?


  29. Great video, Miles! Do you know if there is a way to see the likes and views analytics on these ads? It is hard to tell which of these variations worked best and which we should be modeled after.

  30. Hey Miles, Hi Sandeep, what are the number represents on the ad library that are circled on ad copies. Ads or Ad Sets?
