Digital Marketing is the essential guide for marketing your brand online and Facebook being the most used online platform, you can create and run campaigns using simple self-service tools and track them with easy to read reports. So no matter what kind of audience you want to reach, you'll find them here.

Facebook Ad's are 100% worth it.

Here's your guide to creating Facebook Ads for free!

There are two ways we can manage Facebook Ads.

1) Boost page

2) Run Ad Campaigns

1) Boost page

If you want to reach an extended audience beyond people who like your Page, you can boost a post or promote your Page.

Why to Boost or Promote your page?

  • Exposure to new audience:

    You can choose who to target when you boost your posts. Facebook gives you the option of targeting people who like your Page and their friends, which puts your Page in front of all your fans’ friends as well.

    • Set your budget.

You're in control of how much you spend on a boost or promotion – we'll never charge more than the budget that you select. The budget that you select is the per-day price of boosting a post. Depending on the audience and budget that you choose, you may or may not reach the maximum amount of your budget each day.

  • Ensures your content is seen by the right people:

The other option Facebook gives you is to create a target audience based on gender, age, location and interests, which can expose your Page to even more new users. If you have an important message or promotion for a specific audience, boosting posts allows you to put your content in front of the right people.

Steps to Boost a Facebook Page.

Before you begin you'll need a Facebook Page. 1)Go to your Facebook Page.

2)Find the post you want to boost.

3)Tap Boost Post.

4)Fill in the details for your ad. We'll automatically use images and text from your post, but you can choose the following details:

Audience: Choose a recommended audience or create a new audience based on specific traits.

Total Budget: Select a recommended budget or provide a custom budget.

Duration: Select one of the suggested timeframes or provide a specific end date.

Payment method: Review your payment method.

5) When you are done, tap Boost.

Create a campaign with the Reach objective.

The Reach objective maximises the number of people who see your ads and how often they see them. With this objective, you can choose to maximise your reach or impressions for the entire duration of your campaign. You can also set frequency controls for how many times a person sees your ad and the minimum number of days between each time they see it.

To create a campaign:

For example, I am running a Startup called "Pick Naturals" which provides fresh organic fruits and vegetables to the coustmers. As my Startup is new, with the help of the Reach Campaign I will be able to reach or show my Ad as many as people possible. With this example, you will be more clear about the Campaign.

1) So you can start with creating a campaign in Ads Manager.

2) Then select the Reach objective from the above Campaigns.

3) Enter your Campaign name and click Continue.

Here, I am going to name my Campaign as "Pick Naturals Reach Ad".You can name the Campaign whichever suits to your Ad.

4)Set your Audience. To use location targeting, enter your business address to the right of Include. Adjust the radius around the location with the slider.

By selecting the audience, I will reach the people who will be interested in my Ad. As my product/ business is related to kitchen chores,for me usually the location will be the residential areas around my shop and nearby areas.
