Facebook and Instagram ads
In the world of modern marketing, it’s hard to imagine a company that is not represented on social networks and does not use targeted advertising. What is being targeted is a certain audience. Opportunities for advertising in the social networks increase every year, because they can be used at almost all stages of user interaction with your company. Potential customers visit your company’s Facebook or Instagram page to get to know you better, to see how many followers and reviews you have, how often you post and how good the content you post. All this shows the level of your company. As they say, good clothes open all doors) And it is up to you to look smashing!
Today Facebook and Instagram ads are launched from the same dashboard, have many settings, good analytics instruments and almost unlimited possibilities of targeting the target audience. Whatever you sell, catalog advertising is simply a must have for your company. This is advertisement of those products that were viewed by users of your website, who did not buy immediately, for whatever reason. Targeting a similar (close) audience to the people who previously bought your goods or services also works great and must be used. Another mega-useful feature is the ability to upload your customer base to your advertising account and, again, set up an advertisement for an audience similar in behavior.
Another function that we often use when working with manufacturing enterprises is advertising with the option of receiving direct contacts of the potential customers. By the way, these contacts can be automatically synchronized with a CRM system, which facilitates the work of your call center.
There are many nuances of working with targeted advertising and one of them is to test the creative tools: banners, video and text messages sent to your audience. It is crucial to fire up several creative options right away in order to test which of them causes the best response from the audience as quickly as possible. Also, do not forget about “banner blindness” – what happens when you don’t change your creative approach for too long and it simply becomes boring to the audience, who stops responding.
