5 x Ways to win with Facebook ads right now – without wasting money or spiralling into a vortex of ads manager doom.
So what’s working right now in Facebook ads you ask? Tune into the Podcast episode to hear the full breakdown of what exactly is (and isn’t working right now) in Facebook ads land. For the speed readers, below is a high-level re-cap.
1. Broad audiences
If you aren’t using broad audiences right now – it’s time to try them!
2. Dynamic creatives- do the testing for you, lets the algorithm find the best combination
Dynamic creatives are my new go-to and are like the lazy girls’ guide to both building and testing which ads your audience wants to see.
Toggle on the ‘Dynamic creatives’ button at the ad set level and then when you get to the ad creation stage, you can load up to 10 different visuals, 5 text options, 5 headlines, 5 link descriptions and 5 calls to action.
Pro tip – don’t use ALL of the options if you are running a low-budget campaign, as it will spread your ad spend across all of the combinations and you will find it takes FOREVER for any one ad combination to have enough spend allocated to it to be successful.
3. Account simplification
It’s time to stop running ads like it’s 2015. Gone are the days of having hundreds of ad sets testing for single interests audiences, and then different creatives (and then duplicating those testing against CBO vs ABO)
The new way forward is fewer campaigns, with fewer ad sets within them.
And as a busy eCommerce business owner that is probably trying to do ALL of the things, I’m sure you don’t have time to stare at column after column in ads manager trying to figure out the winners.
It’s time for fewer campaigns, and less complicated funnels and Im sure for many this will be welcome news!
4. Lower daily budgets
Yep, this one is new – starting your campaigns at a lower daily spend seems to be rewarding advertisers with a lower cost per conversion than starting the campaign at a super high budget.
There is lots of discussion around daily budgets and that starting your campaign on our lower daily budget makes FB work harder for your dollars, in comparison to a much higher daily budget where FB has more runway and ad spend to burn through.
If you are starting ads at $200 a day and they aren’t getting you the CPCs you want, try recreating that ad on $80 a see if there’s a difference.
Pro-tip. Set yourself ‘rules or benchmarks’ as to when to turn off ads. If historically your cost per sale from FB ads is $50 per sale and you’ve created a new campaign that’s spent $200 without a sale, I’d switch it off and try again. If you want to run the test I mentioned, be sure to let the $ 80-day campaign reach the same total spend amount as what your $ 200-a-day ad hit, before you turned it off. That way you are comparing apples with apples.
5. Outside-of-the-box retargeting strategies
As I mentioned before, broad audiences are what FB wants us to use, and reward us with cheaper CPCs. But what if you want to retarget your warmest audiences? Sure, you can create a conversion campaign retargeting them but what you will probably find is that the cost per sale in the retargeting ad is higher than the cost per sale in the broad campaign. Remember every customisation (ie. specific audience) we ask of FB, the higher the price we pay.
So this flips everything we know about retargeting on its head, right?
Here are some strategies that you could try:
