Are you ready to step up your Facebook business page? You may have already experimented with Facebook ‘Boosts’ with mixed success. Now is the perfect time to take control, open more features and delve into Facebook Business Manager.
Why use Facebook Business Manager over Boosting?
Whilst ‘Boosting’ is quick and easy, it’s ad-hoc nature can make it messy. Boosting may give you some success but it is quite difficult to understand if it converts to increased sales, traffic or brand awareness.
Setting up Facebook Business Manager and running your paid Facebook posts through this platform allows you to see far more information. You can target specific audiences far more easily. You can create campaigns with specific goals in mind, grouping different kinds of adverts together and testing which ones work best for you.
One of the biggest benefits is the ability to create and use a Facebook Pixel. In a nutshell a pixel is a bit of code that allows you to track events happening on your website. It means you can understand which posts and advertisements work best for you and your business.
