  • Amplify the same content

NOTE: Don’t just “boost” the post, instead turn the post into an ad using the page post ID.

When you are setting up your ad at “Ad” LEvel, click “USE EXISTING POST” ad enter the page post ID

This allows you to retain social proof from the original post (and have the option to customize ad)

GO to Adset– GO to ad- Click ad existing post

Once you have done this, look at the key metrics like earnings per click to see if the post is accomplishing what you want it to.

Maybe you want to organically test first if you don’t have a post but start from scratch.

Put an organic post on your page and measure the result and then put to the ad. IT WILL SAVE A LOT OF MONEY

Existing post ad gives you options to customize the post over bost post option. #FacebookZero effect Click To Tweet

Another suggestion: Make the look and feel of the ad congruent with the destination you are sending them if not it is similar to the normal ad and they click the back button, Facebook says it NO -NO

In case you are struggling for copy ideas: USE SALES PAGE


Cold customers need a different copy from warm ones.

Warm already familiar with your brand and offer.

Cold audiences: create awareness rather than sales like the introduction

Don’t stop here: Lot many people stop here.

One step further:

Hot traffic may be visited your sales page, landing page but did not buy.

so be more aggressive:- Based on retargeting

Use of tactics:

Tactics are meaningless without an effective strategy

TIP: take time to create a strategy

What is a tactics: way to accomplish to one goal.

Tactic example

Cool tactics, but do not move forward to accomplish your goal. Microtasks are accomplished. This makes long-term focus extremely difficult

Drawbacks are: You get ad fatigue, the ad becomes ineffective, ultimately loss of budget.

STRATEGY: Big picture of the customer journey and how to move prospects through the journey and into your ideal outcome.

Run an ad to watch the video for someone,  who is reading your blog, then optin, use Facebook to drive them through the journey.

Tactics: A great tactics is to use video watcher custom audiences :

You can serve people specific ads based on the how much of a video they watched.

Just using this tactic will get you some results, but combining with your strategy will allow you to develop a long-term play that leads someone down the entire customer journey, instead of just accomplishing a micro-task.

If you think after 2 minutes watch they are ready for sales page then after 2 minutes serve them with ad to lead to landing page-sale page. else retarget to finish the video.

This is a long game that we are playing.

How to find what is working what not?

Get clear on what you are trying to accomplish with the ad, you are reviewing, and if it is accomplishing that: keep it running


Keep whats working going to continuously fuel your ad spend, you can try a variation of that to improve your results, but keep the effective ad running.

“Test one aspect at a time,” else you will not come to know what is causing change.

Use split ads test at ad set level, not at ad level: At ad level, Facebook will decide too quickly if the ad is working in few hundred impressions. Click To Tweet

But you do it an ad set level, with one ad per ad set level, both ads will be shown to audiences for a longer period of time, and you will get a better idea of how they are performing in relation to each other.

Relevant score:

How relevant score works

If your relevance score is low, you know there is a disconnect between your ad and your audience. This gives a good idea for adjustments on running an ad or ad is effective.

“If your ad is accomplishing its intended goal, don’t stop running it because if a low relevance score”

Use relevance score as a way to reach your audience at a lower cost and to test and learn about your ad creative and ad targeting. But understand that having good relevance score is not an end unto itself.
