How Does Facebook Advertising Work?

It is important to learn how Facebook advertising works if you want to run a successful Facebook advertising campaign. When making a Facebook ad, five factors need to be kept in mind:

  • Targeting. As per marketing experts, Facebook Ads are just a tool used to create interest and eventually cause an increase in demand. However, given that most users do not browse Facebook like they browse Amazon, it is essential for you to know the audience of your Facebook Ad. Therefore, you need to identify your target market based on demographics such as gender, age, preferences, etc.
  • Placement. Besides Facebook’s news feed, you should also consider Marketplace, Audience Network, and Messenger Inbox.
  • Bidding. Facebook runs a real-time digital auction for people who want to place their ads. The point to note is that Facebook auctions evaluate an ad based on its intrinsic and competitive value. So, despite having placed a bid on the placement, Facebook’s algorithm will decide if your ad is more relevant than your competitors. The bottom line is that you need to customize your ads according to your target audience.
  • Budget. Your budget is the amount of money you afford to and are willing to spend on your Facebook ad campaign.
  • Ads Schedule. Always select relevant images on your ads and avoid depending on stock photos. Instead, employ a graphic designer to create a catchy marketing ad that will capture the attention of your target audience.
