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.

My PROVEN Facebook Ads Testing Strategy That WORKS! Step by Step Tutorial

If you’ve been subscribed to the blog, then you’ll know you’ve probably seen it before. In fact, every Thursday I put out a poll asking you guys, then what kind of content you want me to cover that weekend come in so this Thursday, then I did exactly that I’ll put screenshot up here and, as you can see, then the clear winner was Facebook Ads testing.

So that’s exactly what today’s article is going to be about tomorrow, then Sunday will be on the second place winner, which was Facebook as scaling. So if you want to see that article then make sure you hit that subscribe button, and that means something guys, that’s a topic. Thank you for tuning in. I hope you enjoyed the article and let’s get straight into it. What is going on, then guys welcome to my ad manager account.

So the way I’m going to structure this article, then, is I’m going to start off firstly going through why this strategy actually works. I’ve got a Google document that we’re going to go and actually work through kind of. Why the reason in why we have to do things this particular way and why this particular strategy works and then afterwards, muchly going to go through on my ad manager, account and actually create this testing strategy.

So you can see exactly how to set up yourself now. I’m fully aware that some of you won’t care about why this thing works, even though I thoroughly or strongly recommend them that you do read this first bit. I will pause time stamp up here somewhere in the middle of the screen, for those of you that just want to skip ahead straight to the actual creation of this strategy. So that means said then, let’s get straight into it.

So Facebook Ads testing strategy new for 2019, so number one then before we get into this strategy itself, two things you need to consider. First number one: Facebook Ads optimize on the answer level. We’ve got proof of both these points as well, and then number two facebook recommends a minimum of 50 conversions per week for ad optimization and that is on the ad set level. So if you’ve got 10 ad sets within your campaign and each ad set is get in, say, 5 conversions, even though you’re hitting those 50 conversions, not one single one of those ad sets is getting 50 conversions on its own.

Therefore, it’s not going to be delivering optimally and just to prove it to you guys, then I’ve got Facebook’s own business website up here and the first thing I want to show you, then, is this bit here, so this is also crucial to making sure you get In 50 of the conversion events you optimized, for so, if you’re choosing purchases, then these must happen within your conversion window. So this is going to be a crucial point to the testing strategy as well, and then the next point is well probably the main point as well is that keep in mind that we recommend getting about 50 optimization events within your conversion window per week.

So what that’s basically telling us is that if we don’t get those 50 conversions within a week there now ads aren’t going to be delivering optimally and they’re not going to perform consistently. And if I do show you this next page, then you can see the Facebook state setting themselves as well. So each ad set accumulates data, so an ad set, not a campaign, so ad sets optimized on an ad set level needs each.

So each ad set there needs about 50 of the conversions it’s optimized for swear, that’s view, content, Add to Cart or purchase for Facebook to be able to deliver it with stability and efficiency. Now, as it says there and me, it says, needs about 50, the more the better the more data Facebook has to go on the better it’s going to be able to perform. So just give you an example, then if you have 10 and sets that get 5 conversions each in a week, I said this earlier, then you have 50 conversions, but because they’re not all on that one ad set.

Then all of those ad sets essentially won’t be delivering optimally. So what you’ll be better off doing is combining those 10 ad sets or combining them that budget into one ad set to make sure that one particular ad sess gets 50 conversions and that’s exactly what this testing strategy encompasses then. So that being said, then just two things you need to consider while going through this, because it will make sense, then why I’ve chosen these particular criteria.

So to begin with what locations should you target? I always recommend the big for english-speaking one to the UK. Us, Canada and Australia. Now you want to separate this per ad set. The reason you don’t want to put them all into one ad set is purely a couple of reasons really number one. The overall audience size will just be way too big. Are we absolutely massive and we don’t want audiences that are too big to start with I’ll get more into that later and number two as well? If they’re in separate ad sets, then you can make sure that you dedicate an equal amount of budget to each country.

Therefore you can, you can give each country its own fair chance, and then you can make a better judgment. The results won’t be skewed. Basically, if each country will have had say ten pound each spent on it. So if one brings in say five purchases and the other brings in two, then you know straight away which one is performed better, whereas if you combine them all into one and set them, Facebook is only going to give the majority of the budget to the best Performing one, so it won’t necessarily give each country its own fighting chance, so you won’t get an accurate representation in a which countries are the most profitable number.

Two then agent ginger to lead so leave this as default, especially if you’re going into an each-way. Not quite sure who your ideal customers are going to be so target anywhere from eighteen to sixty five-plus and then include male and female, no interest expansion. So that’s the little check box I’ll highlight it once we go through the creation process. Next point test: one interest at a time. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to use we’re going to flex target, but we’re only going to go kind of one level deep.

So we’ll have our base interest and then we’re going to flex it with another interest and that’s how we’re going to structure this testing strategy so we’re only going to flex with one interest at a time if that makes sense. Hopefully it does any questions at all. Obviously, do leave a comment down below, but all will come clear then, when I actually go through the process of Korean is strategy within the ad manager.

The next so emplacement again one per and set of four equal budget testing. So the two we’re going to focus on then is the Facebook newsfeed and an Instagram moving on into a daily budget. This is where things get interesting. So what makes this testing strategy unique, then, is we’re going to be duplicating the actual ad not duplicating that ad set not duplicating the campaign duplicating the actual ad and we’re still going to base it on the whole five dollars per day? So it’s going to be five dollars or just four dollars on there to make it a bit more clear times the amount of ads that you want to run.

So I recommend at least three, which will total a daily budget of $ 15. Obviously, the more the better and I’m going to explain why, later on in the article, because well to basically the more the higher percentage of an audience we can test, then the better results and more accurate representation. We’re going to get all over. That audience is actually a successful one or not, and the pros then, of having a higher daily budget and actually do Paquette do cocaine on the ad level is the number one we have a higher budget than everyone else.

Everybody talks about the whole five dollars per day, so if everybody’s doing five dollars per day and we’re spending at least fifteen dollars per day, then at the end of the day Facebook is a bidding market. So if we’ve got a higher daily budget, then we should get in theory, better results and everyone else, because we’re showing to Facebook that we’re willing to spend a bit more money and we’ll also be out bidding everyone else.

And if the majority of people test and a five dollar daily budget and we’re using fifteen dollars, then we’re going to be able to outbid people and therefore we should get the pick of the bunch when it comes to the customers. Also, we get better ad optimization going back to that original point of Facebook ads optimizing on an ad set level. If we’re spending more money per day, there’s going to be more data coming in for that one particular ad set, and therefore it’s going to optimize better and deliver more efficiently.

Moving on to the next point, there’s a seven-day click or one day view the fact that we choose seven-day click means that anybody who clicks on our ad and then purchases within seven days, they’re going to contribute and count towards those 50 conversions, whereas if it was Only a one day click then they click on your ad, but then they buy two days later. They don’t get counted towards those 50 conversion.

So therefore it takes longer to actually optimize totally optimize. The ad set, because they’re not included in that 50 of that makes sense and then the final point is our bid strategy which we’re going to leave a lowest cost and the reason we do this, then, as it says in brackets, use target cost when scaling is Because we’re testing we want to know, we want to see what the actual lowest cost is that we can achieve purchases for this particular product, because then that’s going to give us a gauge of whether it’s actually worth scaling and then once we do move into scaling.

We use target cost because then that way we can take to Facebook. This is how much we want to pay roughly per purchase. So, as we scale up, then try and stick as close to that as possible. So that being said, then guys that’s a strategy. Hopefully, it all makes sense. So what I’m going to do now we’re just going to go back to my ad manager account and I was going to build one out in front of you, so you can see practically how this strategy actually works.

So, to start with, then I’m just going to go ahead and click create new ad set looks like I was halfway through. So let’s click continue. In fact, let’s go right back to the beginning, so objective wise. Then I always start with conversions. Now, to be honest with you as long as you’ve got a strong product and you put it in front of the right audience, then you can always start with conversions, because with conversions comes everything else and what I mean by that, then, is that for somebody to Make a purchase on your store: they have to become part of your traffic if they have to view content, they have to add the car they have to initiate checkout.

So as long as you’ve got a strong product put it in front of the right audience, then everything else will come along with it. If that makes sense, so moving on to the actual ad set level, then your pixel name will be in there. Obviously, now the reason mine is called that is because I’ve got a few different ones. I just name them to make sense to me relevant to the right stores, conversion event wise now.

The reason that’s like that as well is because I I have a store that sells multiple niches, so I has set up different custom conversions, hence why it’s called that. So as long as you’re only advertising one niche at a time then just use the standard purchase. Conversion event moving down then into the first section, which is locations now. What I’m going to show you is setting up just kind of one ad set one particular answer, but if you want to get a bit more advanced and create multiple ad sets at a time, then what you do is you scroll to the top? Let’s get rid of this annoying message as well, and then you can click create multiple new ad sets and what that allows you to do is pretty much self-explanatory.

Just create multiple new ad sets and you can split test everything and essentially set everything all up in one go, but I’m not going to go into too much detail in this article, because I have done a specific article on that topic. Actually so for this example of this article, then we’re going to leave it as UK aging gender stays as default, and then this is where we get into the actual tags. In section of our strategy – which is this section here so one interest at a time and no interest expansion, so what that means, then is make sure you unclick that.

Therefore that means that Facebook is only going to target people that are included in our detailed tags. In Section, so what we want to do, then, is make sure they were only tagged in one interest at a time, but we’re going to flex it by one level to make sure that we’re targeting the most focused section of our audiences as possible. So, just as an example for you guys, if we’re in the dog nation, I always use it as an example on this blog.

What we’re going to do is we’re just going to use dogs as like the base interest, but, as you can see, the potential Reach is still 15 million people, which is actually huge. We want to make this a lot smaller, purely because if we’ve got a new pixel in a new niche, then for us to go out and advertise in an audience – that’s 15 million people and spend in 20 pound per day. Then, as you can see, our daily reach is anywhere from 1 K to 8 K so to spend 20 pound.

I’m not sure what that works out percentage-wise. But it’s probably like point zero zero one percent of this overall audience, so the chances of actually finding people who are going to purchase our product within that potential reach size is very, very, very absolutely tiny, purely because our pixel is not matured. It’s not optimized. It doesn’t know who our purchases are, so essentially it’s going to go out and show our ads to random people until people start to take notice a bit and start to engage with it.

So, to begin with, we have to flex down to make this number even smaller. So what I recommend, then, by flex, is by flexing by at least one level. So if we click on our audience, we can put another dog interest in here then to essentially bring this potential reach down. So I’m just going to use dog Today magazine because it’s one of use quite a lot and select that and see what that does to our potential reach up brings our potential reaching down to 61 thousand people wish you’re more than happy with.

I recommend, if you’re testing one interest at a time, then try and get your audience below 300,000 people just because that’s small enough to adequately test or get an idea, then of whether your product is going to work or not. Now a lot of people will say: there’s not enough scale, not enough room there to scale it and you’d be 100 % right, but what you’re forgetting is that to begin with, our pixel is not going to be very well matured.

So we have to do this to build up the traffic, build up the purchases, that’s going to mature our pixel and then once our pixel was matured once it knows what and who our ideal customers are, then we can just get rid of dogs. Today. Go back to 15 million people and Facebook will know who our ideal customers are. So now we can go out and actually find those people within this audience of 15 million people where’s to begin with, it won’t be able to do that because it won’t know who our ideal customer is so essentially, then we have to do the tags in for Facebook ourselves to begin with, until we’ve matured our pixel any questions on any of this at all.

Then obviously, please do leave a comment down below, so I’m just going to fill this back in again. Dogs today magazine now. The recent magazines work so well is because, for anybody to be subscribed to a dog magazine, they’d have to be pretty crazy if they don’t own a dog. So it pretty much just tells you straight away that people within this audience owned dogs and therefore they’re, going to be interested in a dog product moving down then into placements, make sure you hit edit placements and then start off by just getting rid of all of Them and then just select the ones we want now.

The two we’re going to be focusing on then are the Facebook newsfeed and the Instagram newsfeed as well. But what you’ve got to remember is that we’re going to split test these in two different handsets now. The reason we don’t combine them, then, is because Facebook is going to optimize our budget into the one that it thinks is working the best. But, to begin with, what I recommend is devoting the same amount of budget for each one, so each one gets its own.

Fighting fair chance to produce the results basically and then once you know which one produces the results, then just focus primarily on that one, so this particular ad set. Then I’m setting up for the sake of this article, it’s just going to be in the Facebook newsfeed. All mobile devices – that’s fine, now daily budget. What I’m going to do is, as it said in the strategy, I recommend using at least three, so I’m going to put the daily budget, then 215 pounds we’re going to use conversions when you use SEM and a click or one day view and we’re going to Go for the lowest cost as well.

So that’s pretty much our ad setup moving on to the actual ad section of this campaign, so now this is finally loaded up. Then what the default screen you will see, then, is this one which is the create ad screen, but what I recommend doing then, is using an existing post. Then that way, every time you run ads to a particular post. All that engagement comments. Tags are all going to build up on one post and therefore, when that accumulates you’ll build up the social proof and the more social proof you have, then the more likely people are to engage with it as well and actually click on it too.

So choose your ad, then that’s not the topic of this article, so I’ve done plenty of articles on ad copies and everything so go out. Do your research on that, but once you’ve got your ad done all set up, so this is just an example. One then, for this article go ahead and just click confirm place your order and then once this confirms and takes you to the next screen once it. Finally loads, so now this is finally loaded, then, as you can see, we’re back in my ad manager account on the ads level.

This is the one that we just created and what we’re going to do now, then, is just you placate this we can court. We can leave it in the same campaign, we’ll leave it in the same actor and let’s create two copies: click duplicate and then once it’s finally loads just go ahead and click publish, because essentially we want to keep everything the same. All we’re doing is duplicating the ad, so we’re running three ads under one and set.

Essentially so, let’s close this down so as you can see, then what we’ve got now then is we’ve got three ads under one ad set level and what this is going to do then, is it’s just going to basically allow us to test an audience more adequately Than just using one ad for a number of reasons, number one we’re using a bigger budget. Therefore, we’ve got better bidding power against other people. Number two I’d sets are going to optimize better than just using five dollars per day and number.

Three, then, by using three different ads, especially this works really well as well for larger audiences. Purely because, if you’re going out with one ad, then obviously Facebook is going to choose a certain segment of your audience to show your ad to. And if that certain segment doesn’t react well to your ad, then you might leave that audience thinking the audience doesn’t work and it’s over the audience or your product, whereas if you’ve got three or five or even ten different ads, Facebook is going to go out and Show those ads to five two three five or ten different segments of that audience, and then you can see which ads are returning the results and then once you’ve done that once you’ve, let it run for a day or two.

You can close down the ones that aren’t performing very well, and then Facebook will start to put even more budget into the ones that are performing well. So that means that the guys, that is the whole testing strategy from start to finish, I would love it if you guys actually go out, implement this and come back and let me know what kind of results you’ve been getting. I’ve been using this a lot, especially when scaling ad sets, and it’s been working really well for for me, in fact, I haven’t done a with proof article for quite some time, so maybe, if you guys want to see it, of course, I tend to go on Whatever you guys recommend, if you guys want to see it, I can do another with proof article.

I actually show you one of those ad sets where implemented this strategy, so you guys can actually see the kind of results I’ve been getting, and that being said, then, hopefully that made sense. Hopefully you guys are still reading. If you are, then, hopefully you enjoyed the article, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this far and if you did then please do leave a like. That’s all I ask, and that being said, any questions at all make sure you leave a comment down below.

I assume we’ve covered quite a lot, so there’s probably going to be tons and tons of questions, but I do get back to every single person so feel free to spam. As many as you want down below in the comment section and that being said, then I’m going to stop talking now. It’s nearly. It is just gone three o’clock in the morning, so that means something guys have a great weekend and I’ll see you all tomorrow.

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.

Okay, this is the one I have Integrating here. You upload a article. You go through, throwing it URL to your website some text, all that stuff, But keep in mind guys only change out one thing. So if on add, B you’re doing a article versus add a you’re doing An image, you want to make sure that this text is all exactly the same. Okay, You want to make sure your call-to-action bowl says, learn more.

You want to make sure that is all Exactly the same as well. You want to make sure it’s setting to the same exact landing page, Because you really want to get a good idea of. Is it the ad that we’re testing out right here, Or maybe you found an ad that works really well, And so you want to test out the landing page like? Is it the headline of a landing page, the call-to-action, the colors? The aim, Like the background, like what is it that really we want to go through and test.

Okay. Now, in my personal experience, The simpler the landing pages, the better just like playing back background of white, Very clear text, just very simple page – that loads, quick and I’ll, get you the right information. That’s what’s I’ve seen his work best So anyway, guys and also, if you guys, want my facebook ads mini course, I’m going to add a link down in the description as well to that Facebook guys mini course and walk you through the Facebook guys manager.
