How to advertise on Facebook

If we already have a Facebook Business Page, we can go directly to Facebook Advertising Manager or Business Manager to create our Facebook advertising campaign. If we don't have a business page yet, we must create one.

There are a total of 11 marketing objectives that are offered by Facebook. These objectives are based on what we want our ad to accomplish.

  • Brand awareness
    It introduces our brand to new audience.
  • Store traffic
    It is helpful to drive nearby customers for bricks-and-mortar stores.
  • Traffic
    It drives the traffic to a specific app, Facebook Messenger conversation, or a web page.
  • App installs
    It is used to get people to install our app.
  • Lead generation
    It is used to get new prospects into our sales funnel.
  • Video views
    It is used to get more people to watch our videos.
  • Messages

  • Placements
    By using this option, we can place our ads in Feeds, Stories, in-stream, messages, in-article, and apps and sites.
  • Platform
    We can place our ads on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Audience Network, or Messenger.

7) Set our budget and schedule

We will decide the money that we want to spend on our Facebook ad campaign. We have two budgets, i.e., daily and life, and we can choose anyone from these two. After that, we will set the start and end dates to schedule our ad in the future.

We can include the cost control and an optional cost that capture the amount per task, not the entire campaign.
