Are Facebook Ads Worth Paying for?

 

Are they expensive?

Facebook allows you full control over your budget for Ad Campaigns.

You can set a daily or lifetime budget for your Facebook Ads. Facebook will not go over the amount allotted when you set up your ad. BUT be aware that your daily budget resets at midnight each day.

For lifetime budget, Facebook will run your advert continuously until your budget amount is reached or your advert end date arrives.

How do I know my ad is working?

Measuring performance is key in social media marketing. No one wants to pour money into an ad campaign that is yielding little or no return on investment. You can check your ads effectiveness in Facebook’s Ads Manager. Facebook does all the analysis, so you can see what clicks and reactions your ads have been receiving.

How long should I run an Ad for?

Again, you decide this. Most ads you create will have a shelf life. They will be created for a purpose, for example, a promotional advert may only run for a week.

In conclusion
