3 Tips for creating Facebook video ads in Europe.
- Define objectives and goals
Objectives are what you want to achieve using an ad campaign in general; goals are what you want to reach specifically within the same campaign. They are two different things, for example:
The main objective – increase the sales of my online store
Goals – increase a 25% of my sales through online advertising
Goals – Not investing more than 15% of the value of my products with online advertising.
- Define your audience
Segmentation is one of the stages that can influence the success of any Facebook Ads campaign. So you must proceed to define the different fields of your segmentation in search of that ideal audience, that is to say, the Facebook user with whom we want to interact.
- Define your budget
Budgets can be set for a full period of time (campaign) or for an average daily expenditure. Keep in mind that the budget is set for a whole set of ads, not per advertisement. To better control our investment, we would only have to optimize it by choosing one of the available options and deciding what the maximum bid amount would be best for our interests.
It is the small companies and entrepreneurs who could get very good advantages to plan an adequate investment in Facebook Ads, because with a very little budget they would manage to obtain a fairly wide audience and, if they correctly segment, they will receive attractive results.
