4 Best Practices for Creating Facebook Ads
Know Your Character Limits
Depending on the placement and type of ad you’re running, you may be restricted to sizes and characters. Knowing your limits before you start the writing the copy will help you identify how you can work with the restrictions to create the perfect ad. Here are the ad specifications according to Buffer.
Identify Your Goal
Whether you want your ad to drive people to visit your practice, or you want them to check out your new website, identifying a clear goal of why you’re creating the ad will help you identify your target audience and create a call-to-action.
Focus on Your Audience
Using Facebook ads can be effective for local marketing because you can use specific parameters to target your ads directly to the audience they are intended for. Focusing the ad on one type of patient will help you concentrate more on solving their specific need. If you think your offer is valuable to multiple audiences, consider creating multiple ads to target each persona.
Lead with Value
When it comes down to writing your headlines and descriptions, it’s vital that you lead with value. Addressing the question, “what’s in it for them?” will help you stick to what’s essential and gain the reader’s attention.
