How Facebook ads work
If you decide to try out Facebook ads, you will need to create a business page first and then choose your advertisement goal. As Facebook ads are highly targeted and designed to meet the goals of all types of businesses, you will need to select what your overall goal of the advertising campaign is, for example driving traffic to your website, raising brand awareness, getting people to install your app, or getting more likes. The advertisement you create will then be optimised for this purpose, so if you choose cost per click, Facebook will allow you to create a call to action button, increasing the likely hood of people taking this form of action.
