How to re-target Solo Ads Leads with Facebook Ads

We Spoke last week on how to re-target your solo ads leads int Google Ads, Today we are doing the same in Facebook Ads.

First, The basics of Facebook Ads

For those that are not yet familiar with how Facebook Ads or other similar digital advertising platforms work, let’s start by explaining the basics. There are generally two terms that these platforms operate with. The first one is pay-per-click (PPC), which means that businesses are only going to pay when a user clicks on its ad. The second one, pay-per-impressions (PPM), where businesses are trying to gain exposure and awareness and are, therefore, paying for each thousand impressions their ads garner.

There are, of course, other ways of paying for an advertising campaign, depending on its goals, with options such as pay-per-acquisition (PPA), where you pay for each conversion, pay-per-view (PPV), a strategy aimed at video campaigns. Facebook Ads uses the data it has collected on users to determine the best targeting options for advertising campaigns. Additionally, you can also target users based on their demographic data, interests, behaviour or the apps or websites they use. After the campaign is deployed, with the help of Facebook Pixel, a tracking code placed on landing pages or websites, Facebook can track engagement and conversions to help you achieve your goals.
