An understanding of how Facebook's ad delivery system works is essential to mastering the platform.

In this episode, Ralph and Molly explain that Facebook is an auction and surprisingly, the advertiser who is willing to pay the most doesn't always win. Here’s an in-depth explanation of how to win both the Facebook auction and the customer’s attention.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How the Facebook’s Ad Auction works
  • How Facebook uses their Pacing Feature to get you the best results for your ad goals
  • The 3 factors that make up the total value of your Facebook ad—bidding, estimated action rate, and user value

Facebook’s advertising policies are constantly changing to keep up with the ever-evolving landscape of the social network. It’s important for us as advertisers to stay in the know so that we can follow the rules and stay out of trouble.

In this episode, the hosts cover updates to the ad policy to make sure everyone is up to date. They explain how Facebook defines a low-quality ad on their platform, how your landing page can hurt your ad’s quality, and how to see what ads have a negative user response.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:

  • The 3 components of a Facebook Ad that wins the Facebook Ad Auction (Bid x Estimated Action Rate x User Value)
  • Why a user clicking “Hide All Posts From Advertiser” or leaving a negative comment is 100x more powerful than a like
  • The 3 reasons Facebook flags an ad as low quality: exaggerated headlines, withholding information, and engagement bait
  • Where to find out why your ad was disapproved by Facebook
