These Are The 13 Types of Facebook Ads.

Each of all Facebook ad types is designed to reach a specific objective. Depending on your business goals, and Niche, you should test some of the types of Facebook ads available to understand which works better for you.
So let's Dig into types and requirements..

1. Clicks to Website :

Drive traffic to a specific website or blog. Good for viral traffic sites.
This ad works as a link to a specific URL. The picture and the text below are clickable even if you add a call to action button.
This ad is the best choice if you are seeking to get traffic from a target market on Facebook to a specific URL, for example your new blog post.

2. Website Conversions :

 Designed to increase specific conversions. You’ll need to create a conversion pixel and add it to your website to make this ad work.
This ad also works as a link to a specific web page, but it is designed to work together with the “Facebook Pixel” which measures the leads that your ad gets.
The “Facebook Pixel” is a code that you must add to your own website to make it work. The Facebook pixel can be used for three main functions:

1. Building Custom Audiences from your website for remarketing.

2. Optimizing ads for conversions.

3. Tracking conversions and attributing them back to your ads.

When you track conversions you can identify specific actions done by the people that clicked on your ad and entered in your website. There are 9 specific actions called “standard events” that you can actually measure:

1. View Content

2. Search

3. Add to Cart

4. Add to wishlist

5. Initiate Checkout

6. Add payment Info

7. Make Purchase

8. Lead

9. Complete Registration

 
The Facebook pixel helps you to understand what actions are made by the people that clicked your ad and navigated inside your website.

You can measure how much people that entered your website from Facebook actually bought, or even started the purchase process but left it before buying.

3. Page Post Engagement :

This allows you to boost specific posts (text, pictures, video).
Basically, when you post something in your timeline like a photo, a video or text and you want more people reach your post, you can boost your post and reach not only your Facebook followers, you can actually reach a specific audience outside your Fan page in order to get more organic page likes.

4. Page Likes :

Get targeted Facebook fans to your fan page. This is the best ad campaign for all business.
When you want to increase your Facebook followers, running Page Likes Ads is by far the best way to do it. ¿Why? Because you choose who to show your ad and you pay for every fan you get, instead of waiting to be followed for people you don’t know anything about them. Here’s a deep guide on How to get likes on Facebook Page.

5. App Installs :

Get installs of an app. With App Installs you can promote an image or a video of your app in order to get more installs. This is by far the best way to promote your app because you can get the people you want to install your app fast. When someone taps your ad, they’ll go right to your app store landing page.

6. App Engagement :

Increase engagement in an app.
App Engagement Ads works as a way to promote your app with your app users or people that have installed your app in the past. This way you can show them new releases within your app and take them to specific areas of your app when they click your ad. If some of your users don’t have your app installed, they’ll be asked to install the app.
You can choose from different Call to action buttons to match your goal. e.g Use App, Open Link, Shop Now, etc.

7. Offer Claims :

Create offers for people to redeem in your store.
With Offer Claims a brand or business can offer their customer special discounts or offers. It is an ad designed to catch your fans attention by offering a good deal directly on Facebook. You’ll be able to run your offer as long as you want or how many people can claim it. Remember that you are always able to reach the people you want when you target your ads to a specific Facebook Custom Audience. This ad is very useful for local businesses that show their nearby customer special offers.

8. Local Awareness :

 Reach people near your business.
This is among all the types of Facebook ads the one that is designed for Local Businesses. With Local Awareness you can reach people near your business. This is great if you want to reach people living nearby or people that visits the area where your business is located. When you create an ad, you’ll be asked to give your business address and the distance around your business which defines the area you want to reach. You can even add a “Get Directions” button to help people find your business.

9. Event Responses:

Get attendants at an event. The Event Responses Ad is a great way to reach more people and get them to respond your event. Sometimes people doesn’t know about an event that they would have been interested to go, this way you can select the location, age, gender, and interests of people that you think they’ll be interested to assist. When someone clicks your ad, it will automatically add your event to their Facebook Calendar which is great because it has reminders of incoming events.

10. Product Catalog Promotion:

Show products from a product catalog based on a target audience.

11. Brand or Business Awareness :

Reach people more likely to engage with your brand or business. A Brand Awareness Ad is a new way to show your brand to the people you want to be connected with. The objective of this ad is to make people aware of your brand showing them an ad with a catchy image with a link to your website and a “Call to Action Button” to like your page and to learn more about your website.

This is one of the Facebook ad types that allows you to show an image, a video or even a carousel.

12. Lead Generation:

Get leads for your business. A Lead Ad is an ad that when someone clicks on it, it is shown a form within Facebook. This forms encourage people to sign up for newsletters, offers, events, etc.
It helps advertisers to reach their goals faster because when someone clicks on a Lead Ad, it opens a form that is automatically filled with the contact information that the user already provided on Facebook. This way, the sign up process is very fast for those who are willing to sign up.
You can customize your form as you want asking for different information like gender, address, phone number, date of birth and much more options.

13. Video Views:

Get more views to a video. The Video Views Ad is the best way to promote a video of your business or brand. This ad is linked to your fanpage, that’s why a “Call to Action” button to lik your page shows at the top right of your ad.

You’ll be able to select the thumbnail of your video for your ad.

Facebook ads look slightly different depending on the objective or ad type. However, all Facebook ad types have a basic design structure that helps advertisers to reach their goals.

Note: There is a new guideline for the amount of text in your image, basically the more text the less exposure your ad will get. You can check the text percentage with the Text Overlay Tool.

So Conclusively;

I can gladly say that few years back there were just a couple type of Facebook ads but nowadays you can create a lot of ad sets based on different objectives and different ad sizes. It’s up to you to test which ads convert better or lead to better results for your business.
