How to start?
Getting to know who your customers are is a crucial step for a successful Facebook Ads campaign. Facebook has 1 billion+ daily active Facebook users, so it’s absolutely critical that you target only those who are potentially interested in your product. Any audiences that are not likely to convert for you is a waste of your advertising dollar.
Luckily, Facebook offers a wide range of targeting options that will help you find the right niche!
To create and manage your Facebook target audiences, you’ll have to use the Audience Manager tool.
You can find this tool in the Business Manager, by clicking on the top-right menu and selecting “Audiences.”
On the Audiences page, you can see all your saved Facebook audiences, as well as create new ones. To understand the wide range of targeting options that come with Facebook ads, let’s start from the basics.
Facebook has three primary audience types:
- Saved Audiences
- Custom Audiences
- Lookalike Audiences
Each of these audience types gives you plenty of additional options for creating the perfect target audience for your Facebook campaigns.
