#1 Build the Right Audience
A solid marketing strategy identifies what actions you want your consumers to take once connecting with your brand on social media. This action might not always be purchasing a product, but perhaps instead creating inspiration for social mission or sharing critical information. Whatever this intention, be certain to have the next step logistics already prepared for your consumers to follow your brand.
#2 Use Facebook Best Practices
Facebook has a strong dislike of primary text based ads. So when running ads images, keep them visually simple and utilize the writing portion of the ad to display your message. We recommend using stock images or taking your own photos. This enables you to capture in a picture exactly what your ad is about.
# 3 Have the Right Campaign Goals
If you are hosting lead generation campaign, you are looking to drive traffic to your landing page or website. However if you are hosting a facebook marketing campaign focused on achieving website conversions, you are looking to for your consumer to perform a trackable action on your website. This could be submitting an form, signing up for a newsletter, sending an email, calling or any other number of conversions. Have these goals in place ahead of time to accurately track Facebook marketing progress.
