Facebook Ads Split Testing – How To Split Test Facebook Ads For Beginners In 2020

Now somebody asked on one of my previous articles. They asked about hey, we cover split testing, so I figured I kind of cover this in today’s article now, if you’re, like Jason, what the heck is split testing like what does that even mean? Basically, what it is is testing out two different variables in your marketing campaign: Okay, so that could be your whether you’re, using a landing page versus a leave form that could be on your ad you’re, using an image versus another image, or Maybe an image versus a Article or maybe, you’ve got some copy on one ad versus another copy, like you’re, just trying to test out two different things and See which one is going to convert better for you All right now.

The key thing that I would highly stress if you’re going through and especially if you’re brand new to Split testing, is only test one variable at a time Now. What does that mean? So if you’re going through it you’re testing out which landing page, looks better or works better, Okay, Only test out change out, maybe just the headline: Okay and then maybe in another test, you just change out the the call-to-action button Like what it actually says, really: click The call-to-action button then another time You can test out.

Maybe the button color or Something else, but you don’t want to test out too many variables at one time, because if you test out, let’s say on one page, You’ve got the headline and you’ve got kind of like your sand headlines. Centered called actions standard like bullet points and everything, But then you change everything on the next page. You don’t necessarily know like you. Don’t have like that That go to of that standard base of what you know, works Versus why if something else works better or not? Okay, so you want to go through and you want to have your standard chord like okay.

This is what I’m going to be working off of and then I’m going to change the headline see which headline works: better. Okay, this one works better. So I’m going to go switch it in here and change that out to my standard and then I’m going to test out the Call-to-action button see which one works better. Okay, this second one! It didn’t work that well, so I’m just going to keep with my standard and so that’s how you want to go through and do things so There’s a lot of different software’s.

You can go through and use as far as the landing page split testing, But this we’re to talk more about Facebook, advertising split testing. Let me show you guys how they’ve made it a lot simpler in the last couple of months to go through and split test. So Some different things that we can split test is our campaign objective, Whether we’re using link, clicks or website conversions. We can test off audiences, So one audience versus another audience and see which one really converts better.

We can test different ads like different ad creative. So if we want to see okay, Does this image work better than the other image or You know like this is creative versus this other creative or this, this image versus a article, So we can go through and test out a lot of these different things. So I just want to show you guys, really quick how to set this all up inside of the Facebook Ads manager And kind of some of these new updated things here.

So if we come over here to this green, Craig button I’ll go through create a new campaign and this one, let’s just keep it basic and easy, We’re just going to say the traffic campaign case. We want to send people to your blog to your landing page website, Whatever It might be. Okay, now legis. This is fairly new. This isn’t the last couple months, they’ve added this, but it says create a split test.

So it’s a B test, you’re creative Okay. So that’s the actual ad the placement, So is it going to show up in the news feed The right-hand column is going to show up on Instagram or in stories or where is it going to actually be shown the audience? So are you going to show it to people in Texas or California Or Florida, or it could be based off their interest or age groups or a lot of those other things or also delivery, Optimization? Okay, so that could be like clicks on the ad versus landing page views And so we’re going to like go through and cover a lot of this stuff.

So all we do is just click this on and we’re just going to say, traffic and we’ll just name. This, the demo okay, So now we’re going to hit continue. This is going to take us to the ad set level We’re actually going to dive through and hit a lot of these different things. So this is going to kind of cover some of the different split testing strategies and things that you can Kind of, learn and discover here.

So this is, you know, okay, you can go through and you know target different audiences. Those have a little walk through we’re. Not going to hit this right now because kind of already know what what’s saying right there But down here. This is where we’re going to choose the cases variable. What do you want to test out guys? Facebook they’ve made this so easy and they keep making things easier and easier, at least In my opinion, they kind of like walk you through step by step, So you come through and you say: okay, What do you want says like just really quick hitting this here? No audience overlap.

Your potential reach will be randomized and split amongst ad sets to ensure an accurate test. Okay, because they’re going to take a random portion of our people over here, random portion of people over here They kind of are similar and match. But it’s not like overlapping and so you’re going to get the best data possible Right, so we’re going to come over here. What do you want to test So creative, as we talked about before this? Is your actual app? Is it the image that you’re using a article Like? Are you using a carousel ad? Are you using what text are you using Delivery? Optimization, That’s more of like! Okay.

Are you you know going for link clicks? So if they click on the ad or landing page views, okay, so link clicks. There could be somebody that clicks on the ad and Then let’s say they’ve got bad cell service or just on their phone or something like that or the Wi-Fi is bad and it takes forever to load the page. And So they like exit out on the page before they actually even go through and see what the pages that counts as a link click, Whereas landing page views is somebody that is actually going to view the page.

That means a page loaded and they’ve actually seen your website. Okay, so audience right here, We’ve kind of talked about that and then placement So for this example, let’s just say We’ll, say well, sick placement for this one came and this works for all these different ones. So we come down here. Placement variable number one, Okay, so we could say hey automatic placements, which Automatic placements for Facebook What they want to do is they want to be able to show your ad on every location possible right Because really what’s happening with so many more people jumping on Facebook Is that newsfeed, Like the amount of people that are trying to go market on the newsfeed it’s going up, and so you know It’s supply and demand right, There’s only so much space on that newsfeed, so many users, and so it gets filled up.

So they want. You to advertise on Instagram on the right-hand column on the Marketplace on all these different locations. So maybe, for this one we’ll say add, say a we’re just going to leave it automatic placements and ad set B We’re going to actually test out something else. We’re going to come down here, We’re just going to do News feeds right here. The Facebook news feeds All right, so we’re going to test out Everything versus just the news feeds and then we can even add a testing here So like maybe want to go through and test the Instagram newsfeed versus the Facebook newsfeed versus everywhere.

So all we’re going to do is just click on test. Another ad set right here We come down here and instead of doing Facebook, We’ll just click on Instagram, So uncheck the stories and we’ll say the Instagram you see so now. We’ve got we’re going to measure out the histogram newsfeed versus the Facebook newsfeed versus on all Placements right, and so you can come over here and see like where our budget is going to be going.

Okay, 33 %. The budget is going to go towards ad set a 33 percent towards ad set B and 33 percent towards ad set C. Then we come down here and we’re just choosing our audience. Okay, Now the same thing works guys. If we were to come back over here and shit test out instead of placements, We want to test out audience right, we’re going to go through and we’ve got okay audience a who do you want to do maybe want to do a custom saved audience like Dallas, Texas, Fitness right Versus ad set B.

We want to do maybe real estate, Okay, so and obviously you want to probably split test those because we’re not really related, but you can see how you can easily go through and choose these different audiences where Facebook, the nice thing is they’ll they’ll, give a specific Amount of the budget to each one of these different audiences cuz, so back in the day, guys how this all worked is if you create an ad set and you would go through, and You have like three ads in the ad set.

Ok, Facebook and they’re, like first 24 hours, They would kind of just pick whatever ad was performing the best and they would just run with it. Okay, So you didn’t even know if, like maybe one of the two other ones, actually perform better than the one they picked, But they just didn’t really give you enough to run with. So what I did back in the day is, I only have one AD Per ad set. So if we’re come over here choosing more creative right here – Okay, I would just have one AD per ad set, But now it’s nice because they split it evenly.

Cuz then, after you, you can go through and you’re running your split test, you’re, seeing which one actually works, better you’re able to get a lot better idea of which one works the best and why it worked the best and they go through and Improve your advertising From there now, the reason why guys at today we’re doing all the split testing is the lower our cost per lead, lower our cost per click or cost per Engagement or cost per sale or conversion Whatever it is that we’re going for Alright.

So the creative same thing, if you’re doing this, we’re going to be actually hitting this later in the add section. Alright, so you go through, you create your normal audience. Okay, you set like okay. Where do you want to be placed and all this different stuff? And then you can say you know you want link, clicks, landing, page views. What do you want and then you would go and set a budget we hit continue And this is actually where we would set up the split test.

Ok, so add name. Ok, so a day right here We could even run it from different Facebook pages right. It’s like we wanted one from your Personal brand versus one from your company’s brand and then we can say hey. Maybe this one. We want to do an image, Whereas down here or we got to go over here to add B Okay, we would maybe want to try out a article Okay, So we can see like which one works better, Which one gets us the best Bang for our buck, Because it’s all, obviously all about return on our ad spend, So some people will go and spell that out.

Roas return on adspend, So ROI return on investment right, and so That’s kind of the key goal of why I want to go through and set all this up. Okay, So anyway, guys, if you have any other questions, drop down a comment below, if you guys found this article helpful, is pretty self-explanatory From here as far as going through and setting up your ad like if you want to go through and choose an Instagram account.
