DDA annual meeting, Friday, May 10, 2013

Facebook ads give you an incredible opportunity to reach potential customers. They’re cheaper than other digital ad formats, and they offer unprecedented targeting capabilities that can put your message in front of people who are specifically interested in your business. There are two ways to start advertising on Facebook: via Facebook’s self-serve platform or through a Facebook advertising agency.The next most important component of your ad is your headline. While your CTA button gets people to click on your ad, your headline determines whether they will read more about you or not. It’s crucial that you write a captivating and descriptive copy that represents what users can expect once they click on it. After all, if they don’t like what they see, chances are they won’t be clicking on anything else from you in future.Facebook ads are intended to be used by large corporations, small businesses or anyone who has something that they would like to promote. The key is knowing who you want to reach, and how your ad will reach them. With Facebook ads you can target specific audiences depending on demographics (age, gender, country of origin), specific interests (like sports or gaming) and even more advanced options like search history on Facebook, website clicks or mobile app usage. You can also retarget users who have previously visited your website based on their IP address so you know they’re interested in what you have to offer before hitting them with an ad.
