You’ve been spending money on Facebook ads, but not getting the results you want.
We know it’s hard to find the right balance between creating ads that get attention and creating ads that convert. But if you’re not getting the results you want, it might be time to try something new.
It’s not just about how much you spend, it’s about how you spend it. The secret is to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your ads. We’ve got some tips to help you get more bang for your buck.
Make sure your ad media are high-quality and engaging
Use a key visual that gets people’s attention. We know this sounds obvious, but it’s worth repeating: visuals are key. If people aren’t seeing your ad or clicking on it, then they’re not going to buy from you–and if they don’t buy from you, then there’s no way for them to tell their friends about what an awesome product/service/experience they had with your company. So make sure that when people see your ad on Facebook, they think “Wow! That looks cool!” rather than “What is this? Who cares?”.
Make sure your copy is compelling and easy to understand
It’s not enough just to be clear and concise–you need to make sure your copy is compelling too. You want people clicking on your ad because they’re interested in what it has to offer, not just because they can’t figure out what else might be going on in their life at that moment. So take some time before writing your next ad and ask yourself: What’s so great about my product or service? Why should someone buy from me instead of someone else? What makes me unique?
Your headline should be no more than five words long if not necessary. You want people to feel like they’re reading something informative and helpful–not like they’re being sold something. Use compelling benefits in your headlines and body copy. For example: “Get access to exclusive discounts” instead of “Subscribe.”
Remember to run A/B tests on two different versions of your ad and see which one gets more clicks and conversions.
Make sure you’re targeting the right people with the right message
Make sure you have a clear goal in mind. If your goal is “build brand awareness,” then don’t bother with targeting by demographics or interests; just use broad-based targeting and run ads that will reach as many people as possible. If your goal is “sell more products,” then focus on targeting users who have already shown interest in those products by using specific keywords or phrases related to them. If you’re using retargeted ads, you can target people who have liked your page and encourage them to engage with it again by showing them something interesting.
Remember: The more specific your targeting parameters are, the higher chance there is that someone will actually click on an ad that interests them.
Use CTAs that encourage action
Use CTAs that encourage action. Don’t just tell people what they should do, tell them how much time they have left before the sale ends, etc. This will help them feel more urgency around their decision so they’ll act faster.
Facebook ads are a great way to get in front of the right audience, but they can be tricky to optimize. They are an amazing tool, but they can feel a little intimidating at first.
We’ve all been there: you pour money into an ad campaign, and then what? You wait for the results to come in. And they don’t. And then you sink more money into it, hoping that this time will be different. And it isn’t.
But here’s the thing: if you’re not seeing results from your Facebook ads, it doesn’t mean that you need to start over from scratch–it just means that something needs to change. You can tweak your strategy and get better results without having to start over completely.
