Profit Dojo Review - CASE STUDY: 1,425.90 Bux in 45 Mins

The digital revolution has brought on rapid developments in the power marketers have to reach the right customers. Choose the correct objective in the Facebook Ad Manager to take advantage of one of the most powerful ad distribution channels in the world. We tell you all you need to know about Facebook ad objectives.

Facebook now has over 2 billion users. And its marketing potential just keeps increasing. The platform has made it easier than ever for you to reach specific audiences to promote your products and services.

Facebook is consistently adding new targeting options, designs, templates, and integrations to its repertoire to keep up with the demand. And there is a demand.

Facebook is the most advertised-on social media platform in the world because it has become the near-universal social network. According to a report by Social Media Examiner, 93% of social media advertising professionals consistently run Facebook ads. And it’s obvious why.

With over a quarter of the world’s population signed up, Facebook offers marketers the unparalleled opportunity to reach every and any type of person.

Advertising on the platform can be a fantastic way to meet your business goals, for the pure reason that “objective” is the first built-in step in the Facebook ad-creation process. This crucial step influences where your ad will be placed and how. The FB team have worked hard to provide a level of functionality geared toward what you want to get out of their ads, rather than what you put in.

Nonetheless, the numerous options Facebook offers, in terms of objective, can be difficult to get your head around. This is especially true if you are just starting out with ads.

You are spoilt for choice with the range of results they can aim for. But without experience using the Facebook Ads Manager, the goals provided may seem quite arbitrary if you have a particular business result in mind.

It can also be hard to imagine what your ad will look like, without first selecting an “Objective” and then going through other steps in the ad-creation process.

In this Profit Dojo Review, we make selecting the right type of ad for your business goals simple. We go through the diverse business objectives you could have in mind for your ads and the different types of ad you can select on the Facebook platform to meet them.

Why Choose a Facebook Ad Objective?

When you choose to create a new ad within the Facebook Ad manager, you will be asked to set your primary campaign objective. This allows the ad system to narrow down the types of ad appropriate to your aims and show you options accordingly.

It also provides Facebook’s algorithms with useful information to enable them to better target the right audience from the demographic you select. You will be given the options shown in the Videolova Review:

While the objectives offered are no doubt many, they fall under the wider categories of awarenessconsideration, and conversion. These relate to the various stages of the “marketing funnel” – a concept used to describe the steps a potential lead may go through in their journey towards a purchase.

Research shows that most consumers need to come across an offer 7 times before they truly notice it and are influenced to take action. The marketing funnel conceptualizes the process of someone moving from the point of knowing nothing about your brand to making a purchase. This typically happens across a series of logical steps which may involve multiple offers and ads. Targeting your ads to different stages of the customer journey has been shown to increase brand awareness, loyalty, and your ability to retain your leads and retarget them after a sale.

The 3 Main Steps of Your Marketing Funnel

The stages of the WP Makeover Review are noted below. Facebook’s Ad “Objectives” are organized into these primary three categories:

Awareness: All versions of the marketing funnel start with awareness. It is at this point a potential customer becomes aware of your brand or your products and services. It is critical to build a digital presence, fostering familiarity with your name, so the people who are most likely to buy your products are aware of your authority in the field.

Consideration: As a potential lead moves out of the phase of awareness, they enter a period of consideration or engagement. It is at this stage that you begin to strengthen your relationship. The customer develops a more specific desire to explore your company.

Conversion: When you have convinced your potential customer that your product is something worth having, it is time to get them to make a decision. It is at the point of conversion that you need to make it clear why going with what you offer is the best decision your potential lead could make.

Facebook Ads are highly versatile and effective — but they work best when you know the goal you want to achieve. Consider why you are advertising – evidently, you want to make money. But what result do you want to see in terms of the effect you have on people, what do you want to influence them to take action with, to believe, pursue, or take notice of?

The First Stage of the Funnel: Awareness

Select Awareness Ads to spread the word about your brand and your products. Research shows that people are more likely to respond positively to ads from brands they are already aware of.

Spread your message and story to position your company as an authority in its industry. Increase your digital presence, bolster trust, and create a buzz around your brand.

Creating awareness means giving your customers an overview of what your brand is all about, drawing in a community of interested followers you can later engage using cutting-edge tools like Connectio to pinpoint the people who show the most interest in your ads.

Awareness: Brand Awareness Ads

Brand Awareness Ads help spread the word about your business in the places where audiences are already looking to discover new thing — their newsfeeds. Tell people about your businessproduct or campaign, wherever they are in the world.

When you run Brand Awareness Ads on Facebook, they are automatically optimized for what is called “recall lift.” Essentially, this means intelligent algorithms are used to maximize both reach and recall by showing your ads to the people who are more likely to notice and remember them.

Take advantage of Brand Awareness Ads on Facebook to expose as many people as possible to your brand, products, and services. These ads are there to help you generate wider awareness of your brand by putting it in front of users scrolling through their newsfeeds.

Effectiveness is dictated by the standard of the content you produce to place in these ads. So use remarkable, eye-catching, and clear images and copy to stand out and get people to stop scrolling and take notice.

Awareness: Video View Ads

Video is the fastest-growing form of content consumed online, which means it provides a perfect opportunity for you to tell people about your brand and products.

Facebook will show your video ads to the people most likely to engage with them from your selected demographic. Generate excitement and positivity surrounding your brand through visual storytelling.

Deep emotional connections can be forged with video content if you tailor it to your customers. But people won’t stick around for long if you fail to grab their attention. The quicker your video ad delivers its core message, the better your chances are of people receiving it. What message will you send to users about your brand?

Here’s a tip – tell the essentials of your story – enough to get your audience wanting more – within the first 20 seconds of your video. Research from Facebook  shows almost half of the value from your ads is attained in the first three seconds. So make your video ads as punchy and to the point as possible to get your customers in.

Also, make sure you engage people in any context with autoplay and captions designed for “sound off” contexts (85% of Facebook users watch video with the sound off – don’t neglect this demographic).

The Second Stage of the Funnel: Consideration

Once you’ve spread awareness of your brand and your products, it’s time to start getting people excitedintrigued, and tempted by what you offer. You want to filter potential customers through to spending time on your website, signing up to your email list, downloading content – any action that shows positive engagement with your products in more specific and time-intensive ways.

You want to see signals that people intend to make a purchase, so you can narrow down your initial audience to your most promising leads and send them targeted content to maximize the results you get from subsequent campaigns.

Consideration: App Install Ads

App Install Ads are designed to grow the user base for your mobile apps. Mobile apps play a significant role in the marketing/sales funnels of many online and offline businesses. Get people downloading and using your app, so you can target them further within it.

Consideration: Website Click Ads

Get people on Facebook to click through to content on your site (e.g. articles, in-browser apps, infographics), explore a product or service in more detail, purchase products, or subscribe to a serviceSend people from the Facebook platform through to your website to engage them there with great content that directs them toward buying your products.

Clicks on your website are a good indication that a user is moving through the engagement stage of your marketing funnel. As a user clicks through to different pages, they should discover the products and services you have to offer and the content you provide to your users.

Carefully consider where you send people from your ad. During the engagement stage of your marketing funnel, you want to get your visitors spending time on consuming content or browsing your online store. Sending them to your home-page in this case is not particularly useful. Your audience has heard about you – you now need to pique its interest.

Sending Facebook users through to high-quality, digestible, and actionable content within your area of expertise can be a great way to get them into your site and engaging with your brand. Givepeople a positive experience by providing them with useful information and adviceTell them how your products or services could help them achieve their goals.

What’s more — your newly collected leads can be set to sync directly with your customer relationship management (CRM) software or autoresponder. This means your contacts can be automatically and dynamically sent directly from Facebook into your marketing funnel without you having to lift a finger.
