Today is the FINAL Tip of the ’10 Quick Tips for Facebook Ad Success’…It’s REALLY IMPORTANT…

Tip #10: It Takes Time

Here’s the ‘simple’ difference b/t Facebook’s advertising and Google’s advertising….Facebook advertising is the proverbial marathon approach & Google is the sprint approach. 

Facebook advertising takes time to optimize because it’s not being ‘sought out’. 

Think about how YOU use Google….you go to Google to find something….to search for something…something specific (info, car repair, closest pizza place….etc). This is Paid Search.
 Google advertising helps you find new customers

On Facebook/Instagram…I am not seeking, I am seeing ads as part of my user experience as I scroll through my FB/IG feed….I AM NOT actively seeking the ads. This is Paid Social. 
 Facebook advertising helps new customers find you.

Facebook advertising simply takes more time to receive data and it takes more time for the algorithms to ‘learn’ and optimize to get you the best results. 

Give your ads 48-72 hours to get enough results before changing anything..allow the ad to (hopefully) exit the ‘Learning’ phase of optimization & into the ‘Active’ phase. 

Reminder: See Tip #5: Using an Appropriate Ad Budget to ensure that your ads DO HAVE ENOUGH money to succeed. 

However, keep in mind that you need to give Facebook at least 24 hours to adjust the performance of your ads after every new edit. 

Every time you make substantial changes to your campaigns, consider waiting for at least 24-48 hours before drawing any conclusions.
