  1. Keep Your Ad Creatives Simple
    • Make sure your ad is easy to read with simple language. Do not try to fit every detail into the ad – just the most compelling aspects of your product or special
    • Use Facebook language-such as “like”, “fans”, and “comment” to encourage engagement with your ads
  1. Landing pages
    • Your ad should direct users to the most relevant landing page
    • Make sure to include the specific information that you mentioned in the ad for an increase in conversions
  1. Evaluate your campaign performance
    • Use Facebook and Google Analytics to track and evaluate your campaign performance
    • Your Click-Through-Rate (CTR) is a particularly good indicator of how well your ads are doing

The Facebook Advertising platform will continue to evolve and develop as more advertisers continue to use this channel. The tips above will help you optimize your ads and stay one step ahead of your competition.
