4 TIPS FOR AD OPTIMIZATION

There are countless trainings available that teach business owners how to launch an ad. But the key to maximizing your advertising budget really starts with ad optimization.


When your ad campaigns are optimized, targeted, and carefully crafted, you will likely see an increase in your return on ad spend and (ultimately) your profit.


As a business owner, understanding the basics of optimizing your ad campaigns can make a big difference in your company’s growth.


And your long-term sustainability.

HOW TO CRAFT A COMPELLING HEADLINE

One of the variables business owners often overlook when it comes to testing in their Facebook ads is the headline.


It’s the short phrase or sentence seen underneath the graphic or video (in the feed) or next to the graphic (in the right-hand column on your desktop).


Don’t underestimate the power of a great headline.


Every variable we test can make a big difference. And with the rising cost in advertising, even the smallest improvement matters!


Here are just a few simple formulas I follow when writing compelling headlines for my clients:

  • Ask a question (or simply add a ‘?’ at the end of a statement).
  • Create curiosity with a bold or inspirational statement (without being click-bait-y).
  • Mention the desired outcome they’ll experience.
  • Call out your ideal client.
  • Describe what will happen when they take the next action (i.e. – what’s in it for them).
  • Touch on a pain point or negative emotion they are experiencing.
  • Mention the name of your offer.
  • Include the call to action (ex. – Sign Up Now!)
  • Use a time-sensitive phrase (Doors Closing Soon or Limited-Time Only!)

Take it to the next level by combining multiple elements together. Like these!

  • How to (desired outcome) Without (negative emotion)!
  • Get (desired outcome) With (name of your offer)!
  • (Ideal Client)! Ready to Have/Experience (solution you offer) and (2nd solution you offer)?
  • Ready to Stop (current negative state)? Learn How to (desired outcome) Without (negative emotion).
  • How to Get (desired outcome) In Just (time frame) Without (negative emotion)
  • Start to Get (outcome) With (name of your offer) For Only (offer price)!
  • The Easiest/Fastest Way to (desired outcome)!
  • How Successful (ideal clients) Are Experiencing (desired outcome)
  • The #1 Way to Avoid (undesired outcome) and Stop (undesired outcome)

Don’t forget to use emojis! 😀(Sparingly, of course.)


Be careful to limit the character count so your entire headline is displayed. Otherwise, it could get cut off. It all depends on the placement and the CTA button that’s used.

 

IN THE NEWS

Meta Ads: More reasons to trust AI and machine learning. Meta is reporting great results with the use of its Advantage+ stating “campaigns improved cost per acquisition (CPA) by 17% and return on ad spend (ROAS) by 32% compared to business-as-usual only campaigns.”


LinkedIn Ads: Yet even more proof that ads are historically the cheapest of the year in January. It's time to take advantage of lower CPMs and capitalize on low competition in online advertising to get ahead.


Google Ads: Many advertisers are upset with a recent change from Google. It’s a good reminder to be careful about opting in to Google Ads’ recommendations.
