You’ve likely noticed Facebook Offers pop up in your news feed from major businesses offering some sort of discount and/or coupon for their products and services.

What most social media marketers may not realize is that Facebook Offers aren’t just available for use to major brands — anyone with over 50 page likes can use them.

Interested? Here are the steps you will need to take in order to create a Facebook Offer:

  1. Go to the ads create tool.
  2. Select Offer Claims.
  3. Select the intended Facebook Page from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click to create a new offer.
  5. Create ad copy for title and description, click the image section to upload a new one and select Next.
  6. Choose an expiration date for your offer. You can also add optional terms and conditions and advanced options, such as a redemption link, redemption code, claims limit, and reminder time.
  7. Click next to preview your offer. Facebook will send you an email with a preview of what the offer email will look like when people claim it. Click ‘Back’ to make any necessary changes.
  8. Click Post Offer.
  9. After you’ve created your offer, you can promote it by creating an ad. Choose the “Get People To Claim Your Offer” option in the list of objectives.
