Facebook’s algorithm actively prioritizes video content. By using a video, your advert is much more likely to find its way onto people’s feed. Not only that, but it’s more engaging as a format. Statistics show that more than half of daily Facebook users watch videos on the platform every single day. Your customers are much more likely to stop and watch a video, as it instantly starts playing when they scroll over it.
Facebook now allows you to choose a multi-product carousel advert. There are tons of reasons why this particular advert type increases click-through-rate and decreases your costs
Use Facebook Offers:
Everyone loves a sale, and your customers are much more likely to click when you offer a discount. If you’ve got a sale on your products, you can create an advert specifically for the sale or offer.
Boost an existing popular post:
Sometimes, we’re wary of launching an advert, because we just never know how well it will react. Will anyone click through? Will it be a waste of money? That’s why boosting an existing post is a great idea. You can pick a post that has already generated tons of shares, click-throughs, and interactions. In other words, you know it works. Now, simply boost it to reach thousands of new people.
Don’t be salesy with your ads:
One option is promoting an event. As an e commerce owner, events are a fantastic way to grow brand awareness. Perhaps you could host a product launch event in your area. If you own a fashion store, you could host a catwalk event, or sponsor a clothing event. If you run a jewelry shop, you could host a workshop in your local area. Then use a Facebook event to build awareness for it.
