6 Facebook Ad Campaign Tips

1. Set the right goals

What do you want to achieve from you ad campaign?

Go further than the Facebook goals and make sure you set SMART goals.

What do you want to achieve and by when?

2. Have a budget and stick to it

Define a total amount that you're willing and able to spend on your ad campaign.

3. Create content that gets noticed

Make sure your ad content gets noticed, engages, and makes it easy to make a decision.

Getting noticed is the most important part.

Otherwise people will just keep scrolling and your ad campaign won't achieve the goals you've set.

4. Include a call to action

Make it easy for people to know what to do.

Make your call to action clear, concise, and easy to do.

5. Understand what to measure

There's a reason we said make your goals SMART.

It's so you can know what to look for when you want to know what your ad results are telling you.

As a start, your Click Through Rate and Cost Per Conversion will be key metrics you'll want to know.

6. Test and measure, and measure and test

Make sure you don't set and forget.

Keep an eye on your ads while your campaign is running.

Make changes to and/or switch off the ads that aren't working.
