Do you know that Facebook and Instagram are two of the most underpriced platform to run adverts?
Facebook currently boasts of 3 billion active users and millions of people use Instagram daily.
How can you tap into this?
Remember, wherever your potential customers or audience are, that is where you should be.
And this is what Facebook and Instagram ads help you to do and at really affordable prices too.
Some people say ads don’t work. But honestly, they do.
In order to run successful Facebook or Instagram ads, you must first answer these questions: what do you want your Ads to do?
Do you want more followers? More engagement or more sales? No matter what your goal is, Facebook or Instagram has a marketing objective for you.
If you run an ad that doesn’t give you your desired results, these three reasons could be the issues.
If you already have a decent number of page likes and you want to turn your followers into customers, you can select people already connected to your page as a target audience. This ensures that people you advertise to are familiar with your page and interested in your brand and what it has to offer.
Don’t target the wrong people else none of them will engage with your Ad. People will not buy or engage with what they don’t need.
Facebook and Instagram audience insights is a great tool to help you out. example, you want to advertise only to people in Ghana or 20years or older. You can set this up in your Ad setting.
If need be, you can make different ads for different segments of your audience. Just make sure your target audiences are quite large but specific.
2. No What To Say
Don’t sound like an Ad, People reject what they perceive as an attempt to persuade them.
People need to understand that it will benefit them when they click on your ad, This is why you shouldn’t use a wrong caption.
Some people think the caption doesn’t matter. But trust me, it does. The caption is the written words that accompany your pictures or videos. People actually read them. If they don’t make sense, they will most probably stop at the first sentence not to talk of clicking your call to action to engage with your ad.
