5 Facts You Did Not Know About Facebook Marketing

In June 2017 Mark Zuckerberg proudly displayed that Facebook as a social media platform had nearly 2 billion users exposing the future potential of Facebook marketing.  Having such a wide base do you think it is for wise for any marketer to ignore the growth prospects of Facebook?

Let us delve deep into the world of Facebook marketing and discover what these facts are


1.   Facebook bids are seasonal

The bidding process of ads has a major impact on the kind of results your Facebook marketing strategy would deliver. The Facebook algorithm is based on a bidding process which calculates the cost of each impression based on a large number of external factors.

Facebook for business tries to satisfy most of the marketers but with so many of them vying for the customer’s attention, it is hard to be able to achieve a balance.

In such a situation using Facebook marketing for small business provides impressions to the brand that is able to bid the highest.  So; all the special events like Black Friday, Christmas and related special days, would definitely have higher priced impressions.

The catch on this bidding process is that Facebook does not always make you pay the amount that you bid for. It will still aim for making you pay the lowest amount possible to win that bid.

If the bid you place too low chances are you might not get the kind of result you want to achieve.

However, if you bid too high do not worry as you would have to pay only the lowest possible Facebook sponsored ads cost hence making it a winning deal for you.

2. Amount of text in image

Recently, Facebook decided that the amount of text you could put in your ad should not be more than 20%. If the text used was more than that Facebook would straight away cancel posting the ad on their platform. This caused a lot of problem for most marketers who were unable to understand what was the problem with having more text?

Now they provide you the option to go through what kind of reach their each ad is going to have. Your Facebook advertisements would be screened on the amount of text it has. It will be provided an image text rating which could be OK, low, medium or high.

You then know where your ad is lacking and what needs to be done in order for it to be able to target the correct type of customers. A Social media management company can guide you better in understanding the entire concept behind this thinking.

4.   Using audience insights

Facebook sponsored ads deliver results all thanks to its ability to be able to reach specific audiences. Narrow down your selection by targeting their location, age, gender, education level, relationship status and other unique behaviors they display.

You get the option to analyze seed audience where you can add interests and the social affinity of your customers.
