With Conversion campaigns, you can not only drive people from Facebook to your website but also track a specific action that they have taken on your website such as buying a product or signing up for your webinar!
In order to do that you have to install Facebook Pixels on each page optimized for a specific action you want your user to take.
5. Get Video Views
Marketers are increasingly using video content to engage their audiences on social media. As per research, video ads generate higher engagement and more click-throughs than traditional static ads.
So, if you have that inspiring story which you want to share with the world, you should definitely use the Video Views objective.
6. Reach People Near Your Business
Is your brand hyper-local? Local Awareness objective on business allows you to reach people who are geographically closer to your business, but having only 2 options for targeting sometimes makes it very one-dimensional.
So if you wish to have a narrowly targeted audience with just Age and Gender, this option is more suitable for you.
7. Get Installs & Engagement For Your App
Gone are the days when businesses would debate whether to have a mobile application or not. Businesses from all corners of the world are now considering their App as a means to primarily improve their customer service.
With App install campaigns, you can now get as many downloads as possible to increase your app store ranking. An app installs campaign is one of the best way to kick-start your downloads.
With App engagement, you can link your ad to a specific section of your app – such as your online store, a registration page and more – so you can give your customers the best experience.
8. Get People To Claim Your Offer
If you are planning to attract more customers with a heavy discount or exclusive offer, Facebook “Offer Claims” campaigns would be a great choice. It could be beneficial in lead generation since now you can provide an incentive to your audience by asking to use their email IDs in exchange of a coupon code.
9. Promote Your Page And Engage Your Audience
Well, which company doesn’t want a loyal fan base? Promotion of your Facebook page itself accomplishes 1 goal: New fans.
So if you want to build awareness for your business by increasing the number of likes on your page, page promotion happens to be a go-to option on Facebook. But remember; if people don’t actually ENGAGE with your posts, your page likes are essentially worthless. So start sharing a valuable content in order to keep your audience highly active and engaged.
A simple question that every business should ask themselves is – Who is more likely to provide an email address? Is it “Someone who has never heard of you before” or “Someone who visits your website frequently”?
Of course, it is the latter one. When you target people who have visited your website before with an opt-in opportunity, chances are your costs and success rate are significantly better than targeting a cold audience. Also keep in mind that the quality of the email address from a frequent website visitor will also be much higher.
Although there is no specific objective given as “Retargeting” in Facebook, it has been proven as the most important strategy when it comes to increasing the number of ‘Conversions’.
Our suggestion would be “Focus not only on a random website visitor, but most engaged website visitor”. Results then will be even better.
