5 Ways to Improve your Facebook Ads:

Use Appropriate Tools to Learn More about Your Audiences

Facebook Ads - Appropriate tools

You have to be sure about the audiences you post your ads to. Tools like Facebook Audience Insights, Power Editor, Ad Creation tool empower you to customize your target audiences. Facebook Audience Insights has an upper hand over the other two because it gives an insight about the audience before you actually run your campaign. It does some mining at Facebook data and tells you exactly who can be an ideal target market according to the people who have liked your page till date. This is a better way to post an ad rather than just shooting in the dark.


Different Ads for Different Audiences

Facebook Ads - Different Ads Different Audiences

Facebook Ads have many engaging features but this is one of the best. You can easily create two different ads and send it to two different audiences. Imagine the convenience this feature comes with in case you have multiple different audiences. You can also create one ad and send it to multiple audiences. The outcome of this is better targeting. You know what to send to whom.. This can lead to improvement in lead generation. One more option is to do Facebook Retargeting.

Always have Landing Pages with your Ads

Facebook Ads - Landing Pages

One thing to avoid while posting an ad is to connect it directly to your website page or product page. Landing pages are a source to educate your users before you actually ask them to buy a product. Facebook Ads are not cheap. Don’t waste your Ad without getting results. Landing pages effectively utilize the money that you put into your Facebook ads. You want good clicks on your Ads as you’ll be paying for each click. Redirecting them straightaway to your product page is a mere waste of money.


Images are the key for a Successful Ad

Facebook Ads - Images are a key to success

I’ve come across courses that go on about how to write the perfect script for your Facebook Ad but I’ve hardly seen people actually focus on images. But any form of visual aid is far more effective than a text Ad. Facebook allows its users to insert images with not more than 20% words. Use this to your advantage to grab user’s attention and make the best out of this amazing feature.


Have a clear Budget and Bid Strategy

Facebook Ads - Strategies

You need to have a proper budget in mind before you get an ad campaign run otherwise you will waste a lot of money unnecessarily. You can use tools like Optimized CPM.

Ads are sent to only those users who are most likely to click on your ad. This is judged on the basis of their track record of clicking. They may also give a preferred placement for your ad as per your ad value and your account. This way you can keep your finances in check. It is a lucrative option in case you have limited knowledge on where to spend and how much. Optimized CPM takes care of it all.
