Using Facebook Ad Targeting to Reach the Right Audience

With access to over 1 billion users, Facebook is a marketer’s dream. Facebook ads are an incredible way to get your brand out there and engage new audiences, but in order to get the most bang out of your advertising buck, it is important to ensure that you are targeting the right audience. While it may seem like a great thing to let your ad target Facebook’s entire user base, you’re far more likely to see conversion and engagement through thoughtful audience targeting. Learn how to hone in on the right Facebook audience for your ad in today’s blog.


Using Facebook Ad Targeting to Reach the Right Audience

Start by using Facebook’s tools to find your audience

Facebook has greatly ramped up its marketing game in recent years and as a result, the platform now offers incredibly useful tools that allow you to gain insight into your fan base and ad strategy. The Facebook Audience Insight tool can help you analyze the demographics of your current audience which can help you decide who to target moving forward.

Focus on geography

If you have a storefront in Baltimore City and don’t offer online shipping then it makes sense to only target Facebook users in the greater Baltimore area. While most companies have a broader reach than that, rarely will you want to target the entire U.S. Instead, focus on running ads in markets where you have a stake.

Explore demographics

Targeting key demographics can be a great way to ensure your ad gets in front of the right eyes. Facebook’s targeting tools are incredibly detailed so that you can choose to target based on age, education level, employment, and a range of other factors.

Choose relevant interests

Of all of the targeting tools that Facebook offers, this may be the single most useful. By allowing advertisers to target audiences that have listed relevant interests, Facebook ensures that your ad is reaching an audience that will be receptive to your product or brand.
