Choosing Winner from a Facebook AD -- not an organic post

Carmi Apr 27, 2017 08:17PM PDT

How do I choose a winner from people who engaged on a Facebook Ad (meaning, I paid for the post) not an organic one?

The only posts that are showing when I was trying it here were all the organic posts. I need to choose the winner from a paid Facebook AD

Unfortunately Facebook does not provide that post to us, the post would need to be made first to your page. You can boost a post after posting it, but if you make an ad as a post (before actually posting it to your page) it doesn’t show up the same way. I’m very sorry, we won’t be able to pull that post into the dashboard to pick a winner from.

Hi Jacqueline,

Yes you are exactly right! Post it first, then boost it. It’ll appear in your Woobox dashboard after it’s posted.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Hello, I have a similar question. Just to confirm, the post needs to be organic first, then boosted. We cannot create a boosted post in Facebook power editor. Correct?
