#1 Use Facebook Dynamic Ads to do remarketing
Back in 2015, Facebook announced Facebook dynamic ads – a big step towards targeted, personalized digital ads. Just like personalized emails, Facebook Dynamic Product Ads delivers greater relevance and perfect timing based on user’s’ previous actions on multiple websites or their engagement with the content posted on Facebook.
When the purchasing intent is captured and added into your sales channel, the Click-Through-Rate and sales results of your ad will be increased. Indeed, dynamic ads get a 20% increase in conversion compared to other types of Facebook ads.
Below are some options that you can take advantage of with Facebook Dynamic Ads:
- Remarketing by highlighting specific product ads based on what users have viewed or abandoned in their cart on your website
- Upsell/ Cross-sell based on their post purchase.
- Finding more leads by using Lookalike Audiences.
Also, Facebook’s dynamic templates and Product Catalog are also great options because they reduce the time to configure your ads. With these options, you just need to create a single ad that can be applied to all of your products. Facebook will automatically select necessary information to display on the ad (images, names, pricing), stop running ads on out-of-stock items and show different products to different users without having to create multiple ad templates for each product.
It is quite technical to get started with Facebook’s Dynamic Product Ads, but once you set it up correctly, it will yield amazing results while lowering the cost and your working time.
#2 Optimize the visual content of your Facebook Ads with Carousel format
