How to get ready for the holidays using facebook ads

Let’s talk about the holidays!

“We just finished up with Halloween, what do you mean holidays?!”

Did you know that around 70% of consumers plan to spend less on holiday celebrations this year? But it's not just about celebrating, it's also about when & how they plan on shopping.

About half of consumers plan to do the vast majority of their shopping online, and only 27% of consumers plan to shop in stores. That means a whopping 73% are shopping online!!!! Not only that → small, local and minority-owned businesses are seeing a rise in consumer preference this holiday season. Is that you?

Is your shop holiday ready?

Don't throw away money on ads that don't work. Here are five things you can do to help you save money while optimizing your paid ads:

Research your competition using Facebook Ad Library

Did you know you can look up the ads that run on Facebook? That’s right, using the Facebook Ad Library will help you understand what your competitors are doing, so that you can stand out.

The path to having a successful ad campaign with DIY ads can be tricky, but it is absolutely possible. Here’s the thing: Facebook™ Ads manager is NOT an intuitive tool. There are a lot of features you don’t need, but sound important.

Don’t worry, that’s why I’m here. I help small business owners & creatives create and run FB ads like a boss, so that they can sit back, relax and watch the customers roll in.
