Basic Facebook Ads Campaigns for your business

While talking to some entrepreneurs I realised that many business owners are reluctant in setting up their first Facebook Ad Campaigns. They are not sure what they are getting for the money they are spending and if it’s worth investing in advertising on social media.

Others have have bad experiences. They set up the wrong campaigns and didn’t reach the goals they were after. And it’s not their fault.  Facebook Ads Manager can be somewhat intimidating to use. The types of campaigns you can set up and the ways in which you can narrow your audience have gotten more complex over time.
