Facebook allows you to narrow down your target to your niche market. You can specify the demographics of your audience and make it as specific as you wish. Targeted ads on Facebook can be segmented by:
- Custom audiences
- Relationship status
You can even get more creative with defining your target based on the purpose of the ad.
2.Different People-Different Stories
Once you have defined your target audience, it’s time to communicate with them. Don’t treat your Facebook ads as billboards. The whole idea behind targeting is delivering the right message to the right audience. The devil is in the details, so use your opportunity to manipulate the details. You can even find out through research if certain products are more in demand during specific days or months and base your ad segmentation on it. Facebook is great for sharing different stories with different people on different occasions. You don’t have to stick to one Facebook blanket ad when you can get creative and do so much more.
3.Less Is More
Sometimes what may seem cliche works the best. Considering the number of people using Facebook and the number of marketers trying to hunt their attention, you have to make sure your ad is not going to be lost in the oceans of content. Of course, targeting the audience and creating ads specifically for them eases your job when it comes to reaching your target, but it is vital to stand out for them to notice you.
Your ad has to be catchy while not being overwhelming. You have to find the perfect balance between text and visuals. Always keep in mind the purpose of the ad, be specific about the features that make your product beneficial for the audience, concentrate on the aspects that make it different from other similar products. The necessary info in the ad adds value to the campaign. Keep it short and to the point, yet not be afraid to add nuances that will make the ad vibrant.
4.Match The Visuals With The Text
While keeping texts short and to the point is essential for not confusing or boring the potential customers, design can provide the catchiness and make the ads vibrant. One of the primary basics of any advertisement is that the employed imagery on ads should represent the message conveyed. Facebook ads are not different in that sense. Of course, whether the visual content matches the text or vise versa depends on the priorities, but the visuals and copy have to line up to get the message across. Tools like Bannersnack, Canva, PicMonkey, and Pablo by Buffer will help you create great visuals for your Facebook ads.
5.Use CTA (Call To Action) Wisely
Facebook ads have to have a goal; otherwise, there is no point in spending money on them. Whether you are trying to increase brand awareness, sell a product, offer a service, share news, no matter what, your ad has to have a CTA button that calls the users to take action. Without that button, your ad will have no success as it will lead to nowhere. Facebook users are familiar with the CTA button; they know how it works. Your goal is to use all the space and tools you have to make them want to click that button.
Using all 5 points mentioned above, you will have a solid base from which to create catchy Facebook ads that get noticed. Don’t be afraid to experiment and get creative to make your ads stand out.
