  • Facebook ads can reach anyone and everyone on Facebook, now more than 1 billion people worldwide. Facebook is the most affordable way to reach a huge number of potential customers and make them aware of your company (products/ services). It’s like TV in potential reach but can scale down for companies with smaller budgets that could never advertise on TV.
  • To figure out what your objective is, ask yourself these questions:What exactly do you hope to get out of your ad? If you could have only ONE outcome from this ad, what would it be?What’s your MAIN reason for running this ad? In order to write an effective FB ad, advertiser needs to askWhat do you want them to do?Do you want them to become a fan?Do you want people to opt-in to your mailing list?Do you want them to buy something?
  • Facebook ads now come in several varieties.Despite Facebook’s increasing focus on native ads and keeping traffic on its site, you can still be successful sending users to your website.Many of these options are only available on Facebook. After creating an ad, you set a budget and bid for each click or thousand impressions that your ad will receive.
  • Facebook ads are sometimes paired with social actions your friends have taken. For example and ad for a blogazine may be paired with a news story that one of your friends likes that company FB page.
  • When creating an ad, you have two options: broad categories or precise interests.Broad interests may seem like an efficient way to reach a large audience. However, these users often cost more and spend less. Avoid using Broad Category targeting.You’ll find the best ROI using Precise Interest targeting.Facebook has an amazing array of interests to target from Harry Potter to underwater rugby. The hard part is choosing the right ones.When targeting precise interests, Facebook provides the size of the audience and other suggested likes and interests. You won’t have any competitive data. Once you select interests for an ad, Facebook will show an aggregate suggested bid.Many marketers target the largest groups possible. This is a mistake. These groups are more expensive and less targeted.Rather than target broad terms for your niche like “yoga” or “digital photography,” focus on specific interests. Research which magazines and blogs your customers read, who they follow on Twitter, and which related products they buy. If you use laser-focused interests like these, you’ll reach the people who are most interested in your topic and the most willing to spend money on it.
  • What is it? Precise interests are the likes and interests people have shared in their Facebook profiles. For example, if you belong to a group called “Lady Gaga Fans”, this can be captured with the precise interest “Lady Gaga Fans”. Other things you’ve shared will be connected to other targetable interests. Who should use Precise Interests? Precise Interest targeting is intended for advertisers with carefully managed lists of specific interests, or those seeking to optimize their targeting at an extremely detailed level. Most advertisers won’t need to target with precise interests.
  • The most important part of your ad is the image. You can write the most brilliant copy in the world, but if your image doesn’t catch a user’s eye, you won’t get any clicks.Don’t use low-quality images, generic stock photography, or any images that you don’t have the rights to use. Don’t steal anything from Google Images. Unless you’re a famous brand, don’t use your logo.Close-ups of attractive faces that resemble the target audience.
  • After seeing your image, users will (hopefully) read your ad text. Here you can sell them on your product or service and earn their click.Despite the 25 character headline and 90 character body text limits, we can still use the famous copywriting formula AIDA
  • When writing your Facebook ad copy, end it by telling people exactly what you want them to do.
  • First the image is only text, Second the image is exactly the same as headline which is wasted opportunity and third the ad is blue and so is Facebook The best practices suggest using contracting color for FB.
