"Your daily budget is the maximum amount you're willing to spend each day to promote your Page. For example, if you choose a $10 daily budget and run your promotion for 7 days, you'll be charged up to $70. Each day begins at midnight, so if you start your promotion at 8 p.m., your first day will only last 4 hours before your daily budget resets for the next, full 24-hour day."
Promoted Page Likes are really targeted toward the local business. In order to participate in the ad, the business's location needs to be set on the Facebook Page.

And you're done! You can view the ads and their performance at any time in the Ads Manager area on Facebook.
