First, Facebook offers three levels of certifications. The first level is recommended for anyone who wants to get started on the path to Facebook certification. At this point in time, participants should have reasonable experience in marketing online and in social media. The second level is the equivalent of the first, but participants at this point should have some understanding of SEO and marketing psychology. At the highest level of the Facebook Blueprint program, you will be given access to one-on-one consulting from industry experts and Facebook application developers who have years of experience in implementing Facebook applications into the business model.
So what do these certifications translate to? Honestly, the only thing you can directly translate from Facebook Blueprint certification to is increased access to software developers and engineers. The increased access will allow you to have access to the best and the brightest in the business, so that you can leverage their skills to improve your business competitiveness. However, there are many things that the certification shows you that you may not necessarily need or want. Let’s take a look at a few of these things.
The first thing that I want to talk to you about is preparation. You cannot expect to ace the certification exam without putting in the necessary time to study, train, and practice. Anybody who does not spend the time necessary to properly prepare will have a very hard time when it comes to the actual certification test. This is why I strongly recommend that you spend at least five hours a day studying for the certification test, and at least three to four hours planning out strategies to apply what you learned in the certification. Again, if you do not spend the time necessary, you will miss out on the real learning process.
Another thing that you need to focus on is using the Facebook Blueprint exams to prepare for other certification exams. There are two ways to approach this. First off, you can spend the required five hours a day studying for the certification exams, but you will miss out on the real learning process by not spending the time to learn about Google AdWords, web marketing, advertising techniques, web development, and social media. If you take the shortcuts and just focus on studying, you will never fully reap the benefits of the program. Instead of putting in the work to prepare for the Facebook blueprint certification exams, you should spend the extra time to learn all of the information from top to bottom before taking the actual certification tests.
You will need to do several things to get started on the right path to preparing for your certification. First of all, you will need to find five Facebook Blueprint courses that are aligned with your career goals. Since this certification is targeted towards those in network marketing, you will want to get started on courses that teach you how to market and sell your business. If you do not know how to sell or market, you will likely fail the exam. Therefore, you need to start building your marketing and selling skills right away. The Facebook blueprint courses that you find will teach you how to write effective sales copy, develop a great landing page, create email campaigns, follow up, and much more.
Secondly, you need to prepare for the exams. By now, you should know that it takes at least ten days to properly prepare for any certification exams. Therefore, the first two days you spend working on the content in the Facebook Blueprint website should be used learning everything that you can about the content to prepare for the certification exams. This includes using the digital badge system and reading the forum threads to get the most out of your efforts.
Lastly, before you begin studying for your certification exams, you need to set a schedule for when you will study and complete all of the things mentioned above. Setting a study schedule is the best way to ensure that you study and complete everything that you have set for yourself. The best thing about studying and finishing your studies for the Facebook Blueprint is that once you pass the exam, you will be able to immediately take advantage of everything that the website has to offer. Therefore, it is in your best interests to set up a study schedule that you can easily adhere to.
