Alright. So, let’s jump into this Okay, So when we’re going through and we’re talking about placements, whether we want to show the newsfeed or if we want to show the right-hand column or Instagram or the stories or whatever it Is we’re going to go through and we’re going to create a new campaign.
All right, so, let’s hit start over here Now, based on what your marketing objective is Like. If you want article views or if you want leads, or just people to click to your website or whatever it might be, different Marketing objectives can work better, depending on where you place them right. So I just want to give you a quick run-through, though, in this article of What’s worked best for me on pretty much all these different marketing objectives as a whole.
So for this one, since we’re talking about Placements this marketing objective, Let’s just pick traffic for this demo right here and we’ll hit continue And so at the ad set level. Okay. So this is that second step and then the third one you’re going to go through and actually create the ad the actual, creative Right. This is where you’re going to go through and choose which placement? Okay, whether you want to show the news, feed the right-hand column, The audience network on Instagram and the stories on the new Instagram news feed on mobile desktop.
You have all these different options and this office view also, where you choose your audience right now, I’m not going to get into you the audience targeting all that stuff of like who we should show these ads to that’s all in that And as mini-course facebook, as Mini course, So if you guys want that drop a comment down below give the article a thumbs up – and I will share that with you – but let’s come down here to Placements okay now by default they say automatic placements recommended Okay and I don’t always recommend that.
Okay, now, Let’s bring this down, You have a few different audiences right now, when you’re, targeting your warm audience. Okay, Now your warm audience is people who have already visited your website They’re on your email list. They basically have interacted with your Facebook page, So they know who you are Right when it’s that type of group, That’s typically a lot smaller audience. Usually it’s, like you know tens of thousands of people or, if you’ve been doing business for a long time.
It may be in the you know, one hundred two hundred thousand people, but that’s where I’m a would use all Placements. Okay, because they already are familiar with you. So if they see you on Instagram and the stories or the news feed or on Facebook ranking column, there are at ready, like they’re, going to their attentions, going to jump to you and what you’re doing right now, if you’re going to a cold Audience completely cold Out – and they have no idea who you are They’ve, never seen you They’re never heard of you Nothing and you’re trying to get their attention.
What I like to do typically, is go to edit placements and I Usually like to start out with just the Facebook news feeds right here: okay, So what I’ll do is you can see? They’re all checked. I come over here and I uncheck all these. I uncheck the messenger, the audience network, I uncheck Instagram, unchecked instant articles, all of these different ones – and I just start out with Facebook news feeds right now.
This is historically what I’ve seen work best for my business and a lot of other people’s businesses. However, Just because a lot of people are starting to focus on the newsfeed now The the cost of generating leads in the cost of doing business, It can be a little bit higher it’s going up because it’s kind of like the supply and demand right like if You’re going down A freeway and they’ve got like let’s say a hundred billboards on this 50 mile stretch.
Okay and There’s 200 people Go through and show their advertisement on these hundred billboards. Okay, the cost is obviously going to go up and it’s going to go up. Go up go up to the point where there’s not 200, there’s now maybe 150, and then, if there’s that there’s going to still go up to the point where you know They’re leveling out right that 100 And so that’s kind of what’s starting to happen.
There’s so many small businesses, So many people trying to advertise in the news feeds and that’s why I, oh I’ve forgotten check this one. That’s why it’s it’s good to go through and test out some of these different placements. So the second one that I like to go through and test out is the Instagram newsfeed. Okay, now, typically, What I like to do is go through and create a different ad set okay, So what that means is, I would go through.
Let’s say I’m going through and creating this this one with the news feeds I would Continue. I’ve set my budget and I would continue and create the ad, But I would go through and I would create a completely different ad set targeting the same exact audience. Okay, because then we just we can get a really good split test. Okay, So targeting the same exact audience. So we can really know which one converts better and instead of clicking news feeds We for Facebook, We’re going to do the Instagram newsfeed, So we’re going to uncheck that and you can see we’re just targeting the Instagram newsfeed Okay, so I’ve seen I’ve seen different results.
I’ve seen varying stuff, like so sometimes Instagram back in the day. Their advertising platform I didn’t feel like was that great, because the targeting stuff was a little bit off. I feel like it’s gotten a lot better, so you can go through and start targeting more with Instagram and in the news feeds and Then, if you go through and you find out later on, you’re like well – Oh It’s only like it like.
So, let’s go back and let’s say we’re targeting on Facebook, bad as replacement And you go through and you’re. Looking at your stats, Okay and I can – I can shoot another article for that – a little bit later, how to go through and look at your stats. And Let’s say you see, most of your opt-ins in the Facebook newsfeed are on mobile as opposed to desktop, So but more people are opting in like scrolling through on their phone, as opposed to scrolling around on desktop.
Now, Back a few months ago, the mobile newsfeed for Facebook and the desktop newsfeed, Those were actually separate that you could check, but they’re, not anymore. They combined them together. However, what we can do is come up here to Device types and we click on all devices which is recommended, and I typically recommend that as well. But if you’re, seeing like hey mobile, is working so much better than desktop, All you got to do is come over here and click mobile, only Okay, so you’re only showing it but then you’re, obviously you’re going to have to come through and uncheck.
All of these. So you’re only doing on Facebook, news feeds and it’s only showing up in the mobile feed Okay, so it’s not showing up on desktop or vice versa. So you could go through change this to desktop. But as I recommended story now, I would go through and do all the vices All right so guys. That’s basically a quick rundown, So Start out with Facebook. News feeds see how that converts and then, if you want to go through and expand and do some split testing and see some other Different placements, I would test out Instagram news feeds and then you can go see in your analytics, Whether it’s mobile that works better Or even or even desktop right and then another thing that I would do is just go through and and test things out, because your business is Different than anyone else’s business right, And so you might find that, like hey Messenger, messenger, just works amazingly well.
For me, right, like you, just might find that that just works super well. So, like basically messenger ads, you can kind of see this over here When you’re, going through into your Facebook mobile app into the messenger. A little spot like the third one down It’ll be an ad and I’ve seen that actually worked fairly well for certain ads. But keep in mind that the ad creative, so when you get to this next step down here and you create a new ad, Just know that it should probably be a little bit different than the ad that you’re showing on your Facebook newsfeed All right.
So anyway, guys, hopefully that was helpful for you guys kind of break down the different placements and What you should try. First, if you’ve got a small budget like if you got ten to fifteen dollars for twenty dollars a day, I would start out with the Facebook news feeds and then even merge into the Instagram news feeds. If you’ve got a bigger budget, if you’re spending, you know A thousand two thousand dollars per day or even more, then you can obviously have a little bit more of a budget To start experimenting with some of these other ad placements right.
