Knowing your audience is the key to generating quality results.

At first, it may sound great. However, talking to so many people only to discover they are irrelevant to your business is not fun.

3) Analyze your competitors

You can see the ads that different pages run on Facebook with the “Page transparency” feature.

You can learn a lot by viewing other ads by your competitors. Check for how long those ads have been running. Even though it is not guaranteed, if ads have been running for a long time, they are probably beneficial to the advertiser.

4) Create the winning ads

Meta ads consisted of text, images, or videos in which you can deliver the right marketing message to the right audiences.

Regardless of technical targeting options in the campaign, using compelling texts and creatives can help you target specific audiences more efficiently.

For example, if you want to target religious people (Which is not available as a targeting option), you can use texts and creatives that suit this audience.
The beginning of the text can be “Love religion? You must view….”
Because Meta’s AI algorithm is advanced, it checks which audiences interact with your ads, and then the algorithm optimizes your ads and automatically shows them more to those audiences.
