Media Intelligence: How to Create a Viable Social Media Advertising Campaign?



An ad plan that you can support should be part of a full PR content strategy to build your audience. This article serves as a useful checklist for purchasing social media advertising. A social media ad campaign is an excellent approach to reach out to new users. For example, when you build a Facebook ad, you can target the exact type of individual you want and have your material appear straight in their news or social media feed.



How to Create a Social Media Ad Campaign?



  • Before you go out and buy your ad campaign, you should ask yourself the following questions:
  • What are your objectives? Make sure your objectives are SMART! Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely goals should be set. You might set a goal of 100 click-throughs or 20 new page followers, for example.
  • What is the location of your target market? What platforms do they use for social media? If you’re a business-to-consumer firm seeking to target millennials, Instagram ads might be a good fit; LinkedIn might be a better fit if you’re a business-to-business company attempting to reach decision-makers.
  • What is your financial plan? How much money do you have to spend on social media marketing? If you’re torn between LinkedIn and Twitter and your budget is tight, you could want to concentrate on Twitter because its cost per click is substantially lower than LinkedIn’s. Alternatively, if you have some leeway, you might run advertising on both social sites for a week or two and then analyze the results to better target future ads.
  • What kind of material do you have? Will you need to spend money on professional photography or video, which could deplete your entire budget? This is something to consider right now.

The Methodology of Social Media Advertising



It’s time to get started after you’ve given some thought to the questions above. Even though each social media platform is unique, a social media campaign’s essential ideas and structure remain the same from one ad manager to the next. After logging into your account, go to “ad management” and follow the on-screen instructions. The following diagram depicts the general procedure.



  • Choose a goal for yourself. Are you attempting to boost website traffic, page views, or other metrics? Select an option from the drop-down menu.
  • Determine the demographics of your target audience. Each ad platform will have a list of interests to choose from in addition to variables like geographic area, age, and gender. This data is derived from information that the user has disclosed on their profile or expressed interest in through their account, and it can range from the user’s work title, income level, and relationship status to what they eat or drink, watch on TV, or hobbies they engage in their spare time. The more precisely you can define your target, the more tailored your ad will be, and the more effective.
  • Make a financial plan. Make sure you indicate whether the budget you enter is for each day or the entire duration of the ad.
  • Make a schedule for yourself. Enter the dates for which you want the ad to run. You can specify when you want the ad to stop airing, which is a wonderful method to conduct a time-sensitive social media campaign, such as for an event or a special sale, without having to remember to log into the ad manager and stop the ad at a specific day and time.
  • Upload your content.
  • Make sure everything is in order. I always check the ad previews to ensure that it will seem how I want it to when viewers see it in their social media feeds. The ad previews help you see how your content will look on a user’s desktop, tablet, or smartphone.
  • Compare and contrast the outcomes. Experimenting with your plan is one of the best ways to figure out which advertising works best for your company—experiment with running two adverts for the same amount of time. Compare the outcomes after a week or two. Which one(s) attracted the most attention or clicks? Then run a new campaign with the best-performing ad and a third ad, and compare and contrast the results. The more advertisements you run and the more results you compare, the more trends you’ll notice about which types of ads work best for your business.
