5 Horrible Mistakes You're Making With Facebook Advertising

Posted by Tim Nichols

Jan 13, 2015 9:24:00 AM

Facebook can be a powerful way to target potential and current customers, track the ROI of your campaigns down to the penny, and grow your business’ influence. Despite this, brands are making the same few mistakes over and over again when it comes to their Facebook advertising.

Here are five of the most common reasons campaigns fail and how to avoid them.

1. Poor targeting

There is no excuse for poor targeting, as Facebook makes it easy to narrow down your target audience by age, gender and interests, so you can literally tailor your promotion to only reach those who are actually interested in what you have to offer.

2. You’re not noticeable

Your advert is one of hundreds of messages on the viewer’s screen and they will skim over most of the content until something catches their attention. You therefore need to make sure that it’s your advert they’re looking at.Your ad needs a clear image under an attention-grabbing headline,accompanied by engaging copy. Keep the copy short so Facebook doesn’t truncate it, and use a relevant image that is noticeable in the mini right-hand images.

Facebook has grown into one of the most significant social entities on the Internet, offering a powerful medium to expose your brand by leveraging Facebook Advertising capabilities . With reportedly over 1.3 billion monthly active users, Facebook’s audience is incomprehensibly large. In 2013, Facebook earned roughly $6.15 billion in revenue, a number which will be significantly larger in 2014. The overwhelming majority of that income came from advertising done by companies on the Facebook advertising platform.

The size of Facebook’s audience is a double-edged sword for companies that are not spending their money wisely on the Facebook advertising platform. While the potential return on investment and cost-effectiveness of Facebook advertising is impressive, it is important for any company investing in online advertising on Facebook – or for any Internet marketing plan in general – to create a well-thought-out media strategy before starting to purchase advertising.
