Facebook Ads Testing Strategy For A New Shopify Store 2020 (Step by Step Tutorial)

Then this is going to be the perfect strategy for you now. One thing I will say before we jump into the article is that it doesn’t matter how good your strategy is, how good your products are. How could your ad creatives are, if you haven’t, got a good professional store that comes across as trustworthy, then you’re not going to see the results that you hope for so as there’s quite a lot to get through, then I’m going to split this article up into Two parts part one is going to be taking you through the actual written strategy and how it works and why it works.

This has been exported into a PDF as well that you can get your hands on one hundred percent. Free won’t cost you any money, I’m just check out the first link in the article description below the second part is going to be the actual. Creating of the strategy within my ad manager account in real terms, so you can see exactly how to set it up. If you’re not interested in part one at some point in a second I’ll put up the time stand that will take you straight through to the practical part.

With that being said, then, let’s jump into the strategy itself, and one thing I do want to say as well is that I do read every single comment. So if there is a question on anything whatsoever posted down below, I will read it, and I will answer you if you do enjoy the article and you want more articles on Facebook. Heads for example. Please do make sure you let me know and hit that like button and finally, then, if you’re new around here, I do upload for article we four articles per week.

So please do make sure you subscribe as well. So one of the biggest questions in our get asked on people is: are these good results I’ll? Send me a picture or screenshot of that ad manager account, and they want me to tell them whether they’re good results or not, because they’ve never run Facebook ads before they don’t know what a good CPM is, what a good cost per lean click is, etc. So they’re confused and they might just test one product and if they don’t see the sales, if it’s not profitable, they might just completely write-off Facebook ads all together or even dropship in and say it doesn’t work.

So this is how I’ve designed the strategy around that problem and it completely eliminates it. So essentially, the premise that it’s based on is that you test three plus products against each other, and then you can see the results against each other. Compare them and then you’ll know exactly which product is the best by the data that comes through and then you’ll know exactly which one to put more money into and actually scale.

So, let’s go through. It then bit by bit. First of all, you’re going to start with a combo in campaign I’ll get into that a little bit later on in the article. The run time for this testing campaign, then, is going to be at least three days now. That is as a minimum. The reason being, then, is when it comes to conversion campaigns that Facebook themselves talk and mention the words optimization and efficiency, letting the conversion campaign run for longer gives it a better chance of doing that.

Within this campaign, then we’re going to have three different ad sets and each ad set. Then it’s going to be unique to a specific product. As you can see, I’ve Illustrated here so I’d set. One is going to be this Apple. Charging jock ad set 2 is going to be this hand, warmer cross phone charger and AD set 3 is going to be. This show Laurens night light moving into the actual setup of the ad sets themselves.

Now the conversion event is going to be a few content. The reason being, then, is because in the beginning, if you haven’t had any purchases chances are you haven’t, then view content are going to happen a lot more. Therefore, your ads are going to optimize a lot more you’re going to get cheaper, CPM a further reach and therefore we can have more data and data is king. When it comes to testing because the more data you can test against each other, the more accurate of a result you’re going to have agent gender-wise, then I want you to go abroad in the beginning since we’re testing, unless you know and can guarantee 100 %, who Your ideal age ranges and who your ideal gender is.

Then we need to go abroad because at the end of the day, it might shock you as to who is actually going to buy your product in terms of the detailed tags and then times one narrow minimum. Now what I mean by that is that you have one interest at your target. Then you hit that narrow audience button and you enter another interest in that box there and do that at least once again I’ll be showing you in practical terms how to set this up later on in the article in terms of your audience size.

I want you to stick around the kind of 1 million mark plus or minus 250 thousand people, so essentially anywhere from 750 thousand people, all the way up to 1.25 million people. Now you want to keep this the same across the board. The reason being is because the budget is going to be the same for each of these ad sets, so it wouldn’t be fair to have one ad set on, say: 10 million people and one set one ad set on 1 million people, because when you divide the Budget into the audience size, then it’s going to be a different percentage.

It’s going to be a different ratio and therefore it won’t be a fair test in terms of the place once then we’re going to stick to the Instagram and Facebook news feeds only the reason being for this, then, is because it’s the biggest space on somebody’s mobile Phone, it’s the biggest space on somebody’s newsfeed when they’re on desktop. Therefore, we’ve got the best and the fairest kind of accuracy in terms of making sure somebody has actually seen our ad acknowledged it and then decided on how to act on it, whether it’s to click on it or simply just scroll past daily budget per ad set.

So this isn’t a CBO campaign. The reason being is we want to make sure that facebook spends the same amount of money per ad set again to make sure it’s a fair test, so the daily budget, it’s going to be five pounds per ad set now. This is as a minimum, it should say minimum there purely because the more you spend the more data you get and, like I said earlier, the more data you have to compare against each other than the better.

The test in terms of the conversion window will go for one day, click or view. Now, usually, I would stick to seven-day click, but that’s pretty much only recommended if you’re going for purchases, because purchases don’t happen as frequently, whereas since we tagged in a conversion event of food content, then going for a one-day click of view is absolutely fine. Now you might have realized, then that every single ad set is exactly the same.

Apart from the detail, targeting and obviously the actual products that we’re testing and the reason being for this, and as it says here is we want to create the fairest test possible because essentially, what we’re doing is we’re testing different products against each other to see which One comes out on top and then we’re going to choose that one to shovel the majority of our budget into and try and scale, and so that makes making some serious sales and actually turn a profit.

The next steps, obviously, then, is after you’ve, run it for three days minimum now. The reason it says minimum is because it’s completely up to you, if you’ve set aside, say a hundred pound or a hundred dollars to test different products. Then perhaps you want to run it for four or five days and perhaps test four or five or six different products. It’s completely up to you. These are just minimums.

So after three days, minimum switch off all ad sets unless they’re profitable if one’s a if one’s profitable we might as well let it run and milk it for as long as you can and just try and make back as much money as possible. Compare the results of each ad set and then choose the best performer to actually go on and scale, and then, as it says there, if you want apart to one scaling for the next step of this or once you’ve ran your testing stage, how does the scaling Stage work make sure you, let me know in the comment section down below and just comment part two or something like that.

So I would that being said, then, essentially in terms of the written strategy. That is exactly how it works. Now, how do you actually go about setting this up with your that ad manager account? So the first thing want to do then start from the beginning in to create a new campaign. I’m going to start over just make sure we start fresh, we’re going for conversion campaign and we’re just going to name this kind of like we’re testing three different products.

So it could be a three product test, we’re not going for CBO. So we’re going to leave this checked off and then we’re going to go ahead and click continue. Now this is loaded up. Then I’m going to take you through each step staff on the top in terms of the ad set name. I always leave that blank until the end and then I’ll go back and rename it according to the criteria that I’ve used. I’m just going to go ahead and select the correct pixel and as accordingly to the strategy, then we’re going to choose a few content.

Moving down then ignore these. For now these are more advanced two kind of options. You can use no custom audiences, but I’m going to stick to the UK. Typically, then, what I adopt being from the UK is, I will test a product in the UK. I will try to scale it in the UK and if I can successfully, I will then reinvest those profits and start scaling it out into other countries, 18 to 65 all genders and then detailed targeting.

So, let’s stick with the first product, which is the Apple charging dock, so typically, what I’ll do then is I’ll go to pretty broad in the beginning and I’ll call this kind of like my base interest. So if we just go for Apple in general, we want to make sure we untaek the expand your detail target. In that way, we get a true representation of actually how big our audience is, and then this is the next stage which I spoke about earlier, which is the narrow audience button, and now we’re going to put in let’s go for Apple, read, seeing as most people Who buy this? Will own Apple read, let’s see if we can tag it as an interest which we can which takes us to 280,000 people, so that’s not within 750 in 1.

2, so we need to add some more interests to this to bring the audience size up. So let’s go for suggestions and actually see what Facebook recommends to us. So now, if we highlight engage shoppers, we can see that the description is people who have clicked on the call to action button shop now in the past week, which would be perfect because it shows they have an interest in Apple and they have an interest in Actually buying Apple products.

So if we add this to our audience and see what it does, it takes us to 910 thousand people, which is awfully spot-on, almost smack bang in the middle of that 750 K to 1.25 range, so I’m going to leave it as that. Moving down then into the next steps of the strategy. Like I mentioned, we need to edit the placements. We don’t want audience network audience network. I’ve found in the past works really well for retargeting ads, but because this is the initial testing stage, we want to make sure that people actually have eyes on our ads.

So we’re going to get rid of messenger and then we’re just going to untick these until we have just the newsfeed only so now that I’ve done that, then I just went ahead and skipped it. So you didn’t have to read when you undertake every single box. You can see that nothing is selected, then, apart from the Facebook and Instagram news feeds, so that is spot on then perfect. According to the strategy moving down, then the final thing we have to do then, is change the budget and schedule and to stay consistent with the strategy.

We want to set this to a minimum of 5 pounds per day. So that being said, then that is the ad set created. The next steps are to click, continue, go into the actual ad creation. Add your creative and then publish the ad. The next steps from there on are pretty much just to duplicate it twice and change the detailed targeting and obviously change the ad creative with that being said, then that pretty much just wraps up absolutely everything.
