After giving your social media sites a little love last month, let’s take it a step further! The average Facebook user clicks on 11 ads per month, so if you’re not already using Facebook Advertising for your business, April is the perfect time to start.
This Month’s Marketing Must: Social Ads
Facebook advertising can help you reach a new audience on both Facebook and Instagram – two places you can’t afford to be missing out on.
- Try running a Facebook ad campaign using lookalike audience targeting, which allows you to target users with traits similar to your existing customers.
- Create a Facebook Lead Ads campaign to get leads directly from Facebook.
- A/B test an ad with different ad creative or a varied call-to-action to see what performs best with your audience.
April Marketing & Promotion Ideas
- Egg-cite your audience about Easter with some egg-cellent puns in your social ads on Facebook and Instagram.
- School children are on holiday again this month, providing great sales opportunities for a variety of businesses (think hire cars, accommodation and camping equipment) as families plan domestic getaways and road trips.
- Working parents will be looking for ideas to keep children busy during the day, so this time is perfect for activity centres like laser tag or bowling alleys, and group cooking or painting classes to advertise and take bookings.
