Facebook Ads Purchase/Implementation

Recently I have purchased a pay-per-click ad on Facebook.

It just happen two weeks ago that I wanted to showcase one of my personal domain as a portal for friends and people to share information online regarding Ramadan and Islam within Michigan and so began the process of launching the web site, blog, twitter account and Facebook page before Ramadan starts.

The domain was purchased long ago so I didn't have to do much but just to point the domain to Facebook page, then setup the blog site on Google's blogger and then setup the twitter account, after which I wrote few blog entries and started posting on the Facebook page. It wasn't long before all things looked atleast as it the page has content and not like a site under construction.

After all the setup, I thought about advertisements, should I run a ad on Google's ad-works or something else? Then as I was hearing so much about Facebook it just felt like I should run a ad on it.

On Facebook I wasn't sure how much money I should spend and also I wasn't sure where to begin or what to display, but as I started signing up for the Facebook ad, it started to look somewhat easier and at the end of all the information filled out I waited in anticipation of the ad being approved, well lets just leave the financial and technical details out lol.

I waited for the response to the ad being approved or is it rejected, for which I repeatedly clicked on refresh for 5 or 10 mins before realizing it may take longer time to get the ad approved.

So I logged off and after a while when I checked my phone and saw a message from Facebook and the subject line "Ad Approved" i was way happy and at the same time nervous, what if I racked up 100's of dollars of bill already? Thank goodness nothing like that happen and I was able to see the approved ad and new ad management related pages which were not visible or available before under pages.

I appreciated the detail impressions of the ads, clicks and actions, as well as how much money I spend in total and per click. It was very easy to understand and appreciate.

As the ad timeline ended this week, I am happy to say that I learned enough about the Facebook Ad management and how to market a web site online. Now I feel like I have an idea about online marketing not just for Facebook but for other platforms as well as I am starting to research them.

If you need help with social media setup or research let me know :)

Hope this helps you in your quest to online marketing!

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training. The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page. Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2. The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1. The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the a

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files. We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working. The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for. I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into. Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again? Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.
