Create Facebook Ads to Re-Target & Convert Your Website Viewers

[HOW-TO GUIDE] : Create Facebook Ads to Re-Target & Convert Your Website Visitors

The Objective of This Guide is to set up an Effective, Scalable Facebook Campaign to Re-Target and Convert your Website Visitors

 

This guide is current as of March 2018.  

There are many varying methods for the effective testing and optimisation of Facebook Campaigns.   They most often involve splitting targeting between ads sets and the duplication of ads to vary elements of your ad creative. In the interests of simplicity, in this guide we will stick to a simple 1 Campaign / 1 Ad set / 1 Ad structure, leaving any duplication of ads and ad sets for the purposes of testing and optimisation for another day.

In future guides we will cover methods of testing, optimisation and scaling, including Facebook’s features of SPLIT TESTING and DYNAMIC CREATIVE.
