If you’re looking for new ways to get your content in front of more people, it’s time to consider investing in Facebook advertisements. Facebook advertising allows you to get your content not just in front of more people, but in front of the RIGHT people. Below, we discuss 4 tips you should consider in order to get the most out of your Facebook advertisements.
1. Determine Your Target Audience
2. Choose the Right Visual
Once you determine your target audience and message, it’s time to think about ad creative. Whether you’re including a photo or video, be sure to have your intended audience in mind. Are you targeting women aged 25-35? Consider that when selecting the appropriate photo. Use authentic photos over stock photography whenever possible.
It’s important to mention that Facebook has strict rules when it comes to how much text can exist on your image. Try to include most of the text within the body of the post, rather than on the ad’s image. Images that include text will be subject to review by Facebook before approval.

3. Optimize for the Intended Result
In order to determine if your ad was successful, you’ll need to figure out what your intended result is. You may be focused on engagement (link clicks, likes, etc.), or maybe you’re hoping to get more people to sign up for your company newsletter. Whatever your goal is, be sure to keep that in mind when evaluating the results of your ad.
4. Monitor Your Ads Performance and Make Adjustments If Necessary
You’ve determined your goal and published your ad, but you’re not done yet! Now that your ad is running, you’ll want to periodically evaluate the results and make adjustments if necessary. You will be able to see results in real time and make changes whenever you’d like. For example, if you notice your reach is low you may want to consider adjusting your audience targeting parameters.
