Top 6 Strategies for New Facebook Ads:facebook ad platform

I dropped out of school and became obsessed with Facebook ads. Yes, that’s me on my car. I know, I look fly.

But seriously, spending all day everyday in my basement optimizing ads has given me a unique perspective on the platform.

I’ve worked with several small businesses and have spent, in combination, over 1m on Facebook ads.

Facebook Ads

Here’s the down-low on how you can use the new ads:

1. Brick and mortar shops, events, get ready

Using advertisements to build hype around an upcoming event will be hugely successful. For example:

If a new movie was coming out, you could say “The Lujure team is going to hang out with Edward and the boys from twiglight tonight” then post a pic of people from Twilight. People instantly relate to Edward from Twilight, which is going to get you lots of engagment on the ad, and then you can direct folks towards your product.

2. Engagements on updates just got way more important

You can now turn any update into a Facebook ad. For this reason, polls, questions, and other media type updates is a huge advantage.

3. Some Youtube and Video Love?

Video ads is huge. Sending traffic to videos with comments on videos.

4. Call To Action in Ads – Legos!

Youtube allows people to put things in videos. Incorporating CTA’s inside youtube video and emphasize in comments.

5. 90 just got a whole new meaning

Only the first 90 characters in the new ads will be visible. Copywriters, sharpen those minds because optimization is going to be key. For all you twitter addicts, that’s less than 140 characters!

6. Build Strategic Updates

Crafting fan page updates that push people towards leaving positive reviews will enable you to use that update as an ad. This will heighten the power of social proof in the advertisement. In addition to seeing “Friend 1, Friend 2, and Friend 3 like this”, viewers will also see all the positive comments. Viewers can even comment on the update right from the advertisement.
