THAT is What Separates Good Campaigns from GREAT Campaigns
Many Ways to Target Your Ads Custom Audiences –Target your those people on your email list –Website Custom Audiences (retargeting people who visit your website/landing pages) Lookalike Audiences Demographics Connections Interests Behaviors
Why Are Custom Audiences a Critical Part of Our Automated Ads System? Allows us to create a specific customized audience out of our email list. We can then show ads to this laser targeted group. Once you upload your email list (or phone numbers) to Facebook, they then match as many of the email addresses as possible to its database of users. The result is your custom audience. This audience is more likely to convert because they’re already on your email list and thus familiar with you (great for webinar registrations, sales, etc.).
Strategies for Using Custom Audiences to Generate Sales Segment your email list into: –People who have signed up for previous webinars but didn’t attend –People who attended previous webinars –People who have previously bought your products/services People who have previously bought from you through Facebook (super ninja!) –People who have joined an “early bird” list for your new product You can then create custom audiences out of each of these segments. The possibilities are endless!
Why We Use Website Custom Audiences in Our Automated Ads System Allows us to create a specific customized audience out of people who have visited your website or landing page. You can then show ads to this laser targeted group. (Re-targeting) You select whether you want to track users who have visited any page on your website or specific pages. A piece of code is placed before the closing tag in your website’s template. (WordPress plugins like Simple Hooks and Open Hooks can be helpful.) Your custom audience populates over designated time.
Re-target to anyone who has visited any page on your website. Retarget people who visit your opt-in page but don’t opt-in. Retarget people who visit your sales page but don’t buy. Retarget people who visit specific blog posts. Can You Say Game-Changer!? Strategies for Using Facebook Ads Re- Targeting
Why We Use Lookalike Audiences in Our Automated Ads System Lookalike audiences allow us to create additional custom groups of people who are likely interested in our business based on their similarities to our existing custom audiences, Facebook Fan Page(s) or conversion tracking pixels. Boom!
How Lookalike Audiences Work… Facebook looks at the attributes of the people who make up your custom audience or Fans or people triggering conversion tracking pixel and looks for people across Facebook with similar attributes. You can create a lookalike based on…
Lookalike Audiences: Audience Size “Smaller”: Includes the top 1% of people in the country you’ve selected who are most similar to your custom audience. “Larger”: Includes the top 5% of people in the country you’ve selected who are most similar to your custom audience. Can only select one country at a time.
Target users who are connected to your Facebook page Target users who are not already connected to your Facebook page Target users whose friends are connected to your Facebook page
Why We Use Connections Targeting in Our Automated Ads System “Know, like and trust” factor. Your Facebook fans are already familiar with you and your brand and are thus more likely to convert into a registration and/or sale.
Interests Targeting Interest targeting lets you target ads to anyone who has expressed a specific interest in or Liked Facebook pages related to a topic, person, event, etc… For example, I can target users who like The 4-Hour Work Week or Tim Ferriss.
Behaviors Targeting Behaviors targeting lets you target ads to people based on things they purchase off of Facebook. For example, I can target users who based on their buying behaviors. (data comes from 3 rd party companies)
Target by: –Country, state, city, zip/postal code –Age, Gender, Language spoken –Relationship status –Education level/School –Workplace/Job Titles –Income levels –Type of Home (do you own/rent?, etc.) –Life events (engagement, married, etc.)
Automated Facebook Ads…Made Simple Module 3, Video 6 Pricing Strategies to Minimize Your Ad Spend & Maximize Results
Understanding Your Options CPC = cost per click –You bid a price per click based on the bid range that Facebook gives you. This bid range is based on the targeting you’ve set up. CPM = cost per thousand times your ad is shown –Again, Facebook gives you a range of where your bid “should” be. Optimized CPM (oCPM) = same as CPM, HOWEVER, the delivery of the ad is based on the objective that you set.
Strategies for Choosing the “Best” Pricing Option I suggest focusing on oCPM and CPC for your pricing. With optimized CPM, Facebook is going to show your ad to the people who are most likely to take the action that you set in the Objective. You’ll be charged for the amount of ad impressions. With CPC, you’ll be charged each time someone clicks on your ad. I suggest starting first with oCPM, gauging your results, then if need be, testing CPC.
Strategies for Choosing the “Best” Pricing Option If you are going to test CPC pricing, Facebook will give you a bid range ($0.54 - $0.97, for example). This range is based on the targeting you’ve set up. I suggest bidding above the highest amount to start (remember, you are bidding against other advertisers vying for the same targeting). As you see results, begin to lower your bid. The key is to find the sweet spot between optimal delivery/results and lowest spending.
