Who are you targeting in your Facebook ads?

Now that we know all about pixels and choosing the right objective, the next thing we need to do is target our ads in the right way to get the results that we want. After we choose our objective, Facebook will want us to tell them who to show the ads to, after all with over a billion active users, we can’t just throw spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks here, we have to be specific. So we can target “cold” traffic, which is typically people we don’t know yet, who don’t know us but who we know we can help. OR “Warm” traffic who are usually people who we are retargeting from our email list or from our website traffic with the FB pixel, like we talked about on Monday. With cold traffic we can target based similar interests, other pages or businesses people might follow, location, age, gender, marital status and much more. With cold traffic we are just at the beginning of our relationship with them and we want to start slow and just offer an amazing way to connect and engage and grow our budding relationship. As they get to know us, maybe they’ve clicked on a link to our site (triggering that FB pixel) or claiming your freebie/lead magnet then the relationship has grown a little bit and they aren’t cold anymore, they remember you, you’ve helped them and they become warm and we can deeper our relationship with them by making offers and speaking as we would to a long time customer or friend.

FB Pixel? What the what? What is it and how to use it.

Do you have your FB pixel installed on your website yet? Does that sound like a little bit of Greek to you? Don’y worry, it’s really not that complicated but if you are planning on doing any FB ads this year and you have a website and you want to track your results, then getting your FB pixel installed is not optional. Simply put, it’s a small bit of HTML code, that you create within your ads manager on Facebook, then install on your website. Super easy to do and I walk you through exactly how in The Ultimate Facebook Ads Masterclass this coming Friday, register HERE. What does it do? The little bit of code, sits on your website. It doesn’t change the look or feel of your website at all, it’s invisible. But whenever someone comes onto your website to read a blog post, or find out your store hours, that code is activated and it drops a “cookie” on that person’s computer. A cookie is just a little snippet of code as well. It’s pretty standard on the internet and your computer collects cookies on almost every site you visit. Now, when that person heads back to FB, the code on their computer communicates with FB and if you have an ad set up targeting people who have been on your website, FB will drop that ad in their newsfeed for them to see. And when they see it, they’ll remember you and your business and be much more likely to click through and visit your site, or call you again. Pretty cool right? Let me add this… have you ever googled for a vacation spot you are dreaming of going to? Looked at the hotel or flights but didn’t book? Then headed back to FB and low and behold, there are ads for the very hotel or airline you were just looking at? Well that’s using the FB pixel and it’s called “retargeting”. And you can do it too! WANT TO KNOW MORE? REGISTER FOR THE MASTERCLASS HERE. Imagine how much deeper you can take your relationship with people if you can engage with them on FB after they’ve been to a specific page on your website. Your ad can speak to whatever it was they were looking at. Super cool right? It’s not too hard to set up, I walk you through it all in the Masterclass and take you through the set up of a high converting Facebook ad, all this coming Friday. Join the Masterclass HERE.

So pretty much everything right?  Let’s go through it:

#1 – Your page profile image is moved to the side, so it no longer covers any of your cover image. I like this change actually, now people have a clear view of your cover image without your face or logo interfering.
