It says the reason I'm seeing the ad because I visited a website or had used one of their apps in addition to the fact That I'm between the ages of 18 and 54 and live in the United States. So this is an example of a retargeting act. This is an example that shows how facebook uses the information that they actually know about you if you want to really know how much information facebook knows about you. You click on this little button here which says manage your ad preferences and when you click on that, you can start to look at all the individual information that facebook thinks that they know about. You look through it and see how much you believe that information is accurate and ask yourself if they know this much about you, How much do they then know about your customers? And this is the reason why facebook becomes such a valuable company and a valuable tool to use for our marketing efforts. So let's just take a walk through and look at some of the specific targeting options on facebook facebook allows you to create a custom audience.

One is retargeting retargeting ads or the custom audience are ads that target people who have interacted with your business or visited your website.

You also have a ton of other detailed targeting options that follow behavior that look at demographics among a few others. And now let's just talk briefly about format as there are a number of different ad formats that facebook will allow you to select from when creating your ads. The important part is to select the right format to showcase your message product or service. So let's just take a look at a few different ad formats. There's a Carousel ad format which you can show a number of different images or videos. There will be a single image format, we can show a single image or even just show a single video. It is important to select the right format to showcase your message product or service. For example, if you're a store that has a number of different products that you want to sell, you might be interested in a carousel ad that showcases a number of those products. Or if you have a more detailed story to tell, you may be interested in showing a video ad that can do a better job of articulating or showing the customer experience when developing creative, consider how the image will stand out on the device, it will be seen on and within the context that it will be viewed when you think about the anatomy of the add the text of a facebook ad is actually the copy that's at the top. The creative is the section that's in the middle and is mostly responsible for driving the clicks of that particular ad while the headline and they call to action or at the bottom, the headline is meant to grab your audience's attention. Use empathy, emotion. Use numbers where you can see the headlines should really focus on communicating. One main point and that headline and newsfeed description should complement each other in a similar way as we think about organic ads and having the page title and the meta description to help people to click on the page title. We think about the same thing and facebook ads, we have a headline and our newsfeed description to get people to click on that actual call to action button and the call to action button must align with the ad messaging. Facebook will give you a set number of options for what you can select as your call to action. Make sure it matches what you actually want. Your consumers to do.
