Facebook, the largest social media platform in the world has 2.4 billion users. Other social media platforms including Youtube and Whatsapp also have more than one billion users each.

These numbers are huge and there are over 7.7 billion people in the world, with at least 3.5 billion of us online. This means social media platforms are used by one-in-three people in the world and more than two-thirds of all internet users.

There’s no doubt that Facebook has a lot to offer to your business, and it can definitely help it grow if you know the right Facebook advertising tips. You cannot just post some content to your Facebook page and expect great results. You need to go beyond publishing great content if you want to get the highest return on investment from your marketing efforts.

These 12 Facebook Tips Will Give You The Best Results From Your Facebook Advertising/Marketing Efforts

Here are the best Facebook Advertising tips to get the best results from your Facebook marketing efforts;

1) Set Your Strategy: It's important that before you run your first ad that you're clear about what it is you're looking to accomplish. Otherwise, you'll fail before you start.

2) Engaging Ad Copy: Keep it short and to the point. Keep it relevant, based on the target audience. Don't use buzz words. Always use a call to action!

3) Interesting Photo: Faces work best, and use close-ups. Avoid logos, keep it interesting, and remember that your photo will be small, so pack it with power!

4) Effective Targeting: Don't waste your money on a demographic who won't be interested in your product. Are you only local? Focus there. Are women most likely to be interested in your product? Single women who like Oprah between the ages of 35 and 45? There you go. But always try multiple approaches and tailor the imagery and copy around that target audience.

5) Run Concurrent Campaigns: Try running two ads with the same copy and different photos, different photos and the same copy, different ads entirely, etc. to find out what works best. Even run them at the same time (yes, you'll compete with yourself) at a very low level to see what people respond to when given the choice.

6) Bidding and Budgeting: First, I always go CPM because I almost always spend less per click than I would with CPC. Second, there's no need to under bid. Assure you'll get into the rotation. You can over bid, as long as you're comfortable with that bid, you'll likely still pay less than you bid. I tend to bid in the suggested range, if not at the top.

7) Start Slow: There's no reason to waste your budget quickly on ads that don't work. I like to start out at a very low level, running at a few dollars. You'll likely know quickly if something isn't working. If no one is responding to the ad, pull it.

8) Monitor Closely: I've heard some people say to check in on your ads every few days or once a week. That's nonsense. You should micromanage them since things can change quickly, especially if every dollar you spend is important to you. Watch and react accordingly.

9) Accelerate What's Working: If you've run a test of five different ads and one far outperforms the others, run that ad into the ground. Run it until it no longer outperforms the other ads. Up the budget and up the velocity.

10) Know When to Hit "Stop": Eventually, people will get tired of even seeing the most effective ad. If they haven't responded to it after seeing it X times, they won't respond if you show it one more time. So monitor results, and know when to stop a campaign. You can always bring it back to life later on or make minor changes to put it back into the rotation.

11) Experiment Constantly: because half of Facebook's users log-in every day, you need to create multiple ads to grab their attention. Rotate the images, title, and body of your ad but also rotate the landing page you use if possible. Feel free to get creative! Try something new. Switch things up. You'll eventually find the magic bullet and an ad that far exceeds your expectations. But you won't find it without trying different approaches.

12) Use Promotion Codes: promo codes have long been known to increase CTRs in online advertising. If you do not have any easy way to employ a promo code, at least make a strong call to action in the ad. Asking questions in the ad is also an effective way to engage the user.

Do Facebook Ads Really Work?

I hear a lot of people say that "facebook ads don't work", What I've typically found when talking to these people is that they decide to boost one post and put their whole budget into it. The boosted post runs and they don't get any sales, so it's considered a failure.

What they didn't do is to plan out a strategy and understand what they want to accomplish with the ads first.

Facebook has so many options in their campaign objective type, the targeting and the creative that it can be confusing for a novice user.

Facebook ads don't always work immediately, about 80% of the time. Our job is to quickly figure out what is not working and double down on what is.

Facebook ads work, when you either get lucky with a great ad, audience and offer combinations or you take the time and manage a process to find the right ad, audience and offer combination.

The difference between a novice user and a seasoned pro is that the novice thinks they will have a winner on the first ad. Whereas the pro, knows 80% of the ads they create will fail and has a process to quickly identify and sort the winners and losers.

Another thing the pros knows is that your business and pricing structure help decide if "facebook ads work".

What does this mean?

A lot of newer advertisers think that selling an inexpensive product should be easy and that it will be cheap to sell a lot of a five dollar product. With organic traffic, sure. With free traffic, this is a five dollar profit (give or take).

With facebook ads, you are always competing in an auction against other advertisers. So it's most likely that selling to people who don't know you will be generally expensive. $10 and up for a purchase conversion.

With that cost in mind you should know that you need to have a sales process that brings in more than that. It doesn't have to be on the first sale. Once you get someone to buy from you, it's more likely they will buy more in the future.

Facebook ads do work, but a business needs to really think about the strategic structure of the ads and the lifetime value of the customer.
