To begin advertising on Facebook, you don't need to be an expert. Create and run campaigns with easy-to-use self-service tools, and track their success with easy-to-understand reports. Facebook is used by almost two billion people every month, so no matter what kind of audience you're looking for, you'll find them here.
Create an Effective Facebook Campaign
1. Using A Business Page
As Facebook is available on most operating systems, you should build your Facebook marketing strategy with your target audience in mind. Your business Facebook page needs to be designed to attract new customers. You don't need to create a separate brand page, as this will serve a different purpose.
Set up a section of your Facebook business page for customer-service questions, and include sections for your products and services. Keep your branding consistent, and make sure your posts provide value to your customers and help them to understand how you can help them solve their problems or find solutions to their problems.
You can create a few different posts to target different audiences on your page.
Facebook can help you build relationships with your customers and potential customers. Here are some simple steps to create and run a campaign on Facebook for Business.
Create a Facebook Ad Targeting Zone
This is where Facebook lets you target your Facebook ad to specific Facebook users. You can search the service by location, gender, age and more, or add specific criteria. You'll be able to see Facebook ad performance in real-time as it runs and can adjust your ad's budget and audience directly from here.
This will help you target your ad appropriately to the right audience and also to gather even more information about their behavior.
Target Your Audience
People can be sorted into categories based on different characteristics like location, age, gender, interests and more. In order to target your audience, you'll need to learn more about them. Here are some questions to ask yourself when developing your marketing strategy:
What's your audience's typical purchasing cycle? For example, the typical time a new marketing campaign should reach them is 24 hours.
To improve your targeting, you need to know your customer's online behaviors and demographics. The best place to start is Facebook. Through Facebook Insights, you can see which users are the most likely to respond to your ads, and which demographics are most likely to respond to your offers.
Import Contact Data
To pull data from your customers' social media profiles into your Facebook campaigns, click the "Import Data" link next to your ad. Facebook will ask for your contact information. Select the information you need to upload, and then choose "Add Link to Your Business Page".
To learn how to optimize your ads, you can create a marketing experiment by placing your ad in Facebook's test markets.

If you've ever spent time on Instagram, you've seen this magic trick, where for a few seconds, your feed looks like you've actually put in effort into creating interesting content. That's the power of Facebook's ads. They have an incredible capacity to shift your attention, creating an experience that feels more real, more natural and more compelling.
Follow these simple, efficient tips to create the best ad that resonates with your target audience.
Content Is King
You don't have to be a professional writer to create Facebook ads that communicate well, but your ads should be focused and purposeful. For instance, if you're targeting families, you probably don't want to talk about your latest vacation. You'd rather tell them about the great family-friendly parks or activities nearby.
Use Facebook Tools to Your Advantage
The most common Facebook advertising mistakes are not including enough clarity or showing too many ads to the same audience. Here are some ways you can cut out the advertising mistakes and get better results:
Be Clear About Your Target Audience
There's a saying in advertising: "If you tell people what you're selling, they'll tell you what they're not buying." However, this isn't always the case: it's extremely difficult to predict whether people will respond to your advertisement. To successfully make the connection, you'll need to focus on what you're selling and who you're selling to.
There are two main audience types on Facebook: you have "lookalike" audiences, that are similar to your customer profile, and customer segments, which consist of the people who fit your criteria.
The following tips will help you use Facebook to your advantage.
Boost Your Traffic with Facebook Advertising
With Facebook Ads, you can boost the number of people who see your posts by linking them to your website or to a landing page where they can buy what you're selling. Create your campaign ahead of time to ensure that it's a success.
Prioritize What You Want to Sell
Focus on the selling activities you want to focus on. Use the top features to describe your product or service, and include specific details about the buyer's journey.
Put Your Ads in the Right Places
Choose the right ads to target your customers. Utilize features like demographics to choose your audience.
Set The Right Length
Aim for the right goal and reach your ideal audience in the right amount of time.
The reason many of us are going to be spending less time on Facebook is simply that the time it's worth spending is better spent elsewhere. We simply don't need to share what we have to share. Facebook is quickly becoming a commodity.
If you are struggling to gain new customers, the chances are you're already wasting time posting your updates. And you are going to have to replace those messages with something different – but you don't need to worry.
Just take a look at the options on offer.
Instead of spending your time trying to find the right "tricks" to get more Facebook fans, just pick one and get started. It's easy. It's free. And it works.
It's time to start watching your time more carefully. You have so many better things to be doing.
At the end of the day, Facebook can't help you win new customers if you aren't going to use it.
It's clear that Facebook has grown to become one of the most popular and most powerful social media platforms. While the social media giant's reputation has taken a hit in recent years, it's still the place to be if you want to reach an enormous audience.
