  • FB’s guide to creating FB ads: https://www.facebook-studio.com/fbassets/resource/34/ProductGuideCreateFlowUpdates4-15-2012.pdf
  • Look a like modeling Can match based upon to approaches “simplicity”- this finds new audiences based upon tight matches to the audience requirements Reach- broader match intended to increase the # of users who see your ads – Branding PartnershipsLayering 3rd party cookie data from BlueKai. This allows you to get more granular in your targeting but it also increases your CPM. Narrowing the scope beyond the generic demographic and interest targeting information.
  • The IDG promoted engagement post drove 104 people to take CARE’s IDG advocacy action. When shared, the arrow points to the sharer’s profile photo as an enticing engagement opportunity. It garnered 3,550 likes, 112 comments and was shared 730 times.The following Facebook “coupon” was advertised December 20-31 and raised $2,318 via 23 donations. It garnered 1,940 likes, 42 comments and was shared 202 times.

  • Top performing Ad Content- synchronize your remarketing and traditional facebook ad messagingAd Copy- have a strong CTA in your title Segmentation- target your messaging to your segmentation. Make sure your segmentation is reflective of your campaign goals. Scale/ Reach- what are your goals? Make sure your targeting/ segmentation strategy is reflective of your website traffic trends. Poor performing Ad Content- this ad content was centered around a day that wasn’t well promoted on their website or via other channels. Ad Copy- the call to action in the 2nd example was too generic/ didn’t create an emotional connection with CARE’s audience baseSegmentation- our segmentation strategy was too broad so we waste money on impressions that didn’t result in conversions. This was at the beginning of our remarketing campaigns, so we need to do this sort of testing to get a better understanding of our audiences. Scale/ Reach
  • Have a clear and well thought out campaign to support you efforts on FB. Having synergy in your messaging, imagery and promotions increases the overall ROA of your FB campaigns. For example last year we ran a FBX campaign at EOY we ran generic CARE ads that emphasized the importance of give a tax deductible donations, these ads didn’t resonate as well as so more conceptually/ thematically driven campaign we have run since. Play to your organizations strengths, if you have great imagery, heart warming stories, startling statistics, ground breaking work leverage that information in your facebook ads.
  • We need to ask Kiera what previous avg. cost per like was previously, were they able to decrease this number? Nadalie – I checked and it was exactly the same. To be honest, it wasn’t really a metric I paid much attention to during the campaign.
  • Using click tags on your Facebookadvertisting provided by for example doubleclick (but can also use other ad servers) allows you to see your entire advertising’s efforts path to conversion. This can be a great tool for helping plan you next fiscal year’s budget. Once you have broad picture of your conversion pathway you can create a unique model that is specific to your organization. Once you have the pathway mapped out you can create a weighting system which will be based upon the number of assisted conversions each channel brings in.
