How to Analyze Facebook Ad Results the Right Way!

So you set up your first Facebook Ads campaign and spent your first few dollars,,but your results are not yet outstanding?,What do you do?,Well now it's all about optimization.,Take the data that you have gathered, analyze it, and,then improve your campaign.,Sounds simple, but there's actually a lot to it.,That's why our Facebook Ads expert Cedric is here to help us understand how we can,do analysis in Facebook's Ads interface.,Now we've got lots to cover, so Cedric, take it away.,Thanks Julian.,Hey, my name is Cedric and in this video, I'll show you how to analyze,your Facebook Ads data the right way.,So what we will actually do together is I'll show you how to create a custom view.,And we'll add all sorts of metrics to that view and what,I call your important numbers.,Once we have that set up, we'll actually be analyzing a real,campaign that was running last year.,So we'll be analyzing that together and we'll be looking at real data.,And really my goal is by the end of this video, you'll be able to apply,the concept that you've learned in this video for any types of campaigns,,doesn't matter of the objective.,So now let me share my screen.,So I am now in ads manager, and this is a campaign slash strategy,that we will be reviewing together.,So it ran from September 2nd to September 18th, 2020, and this was,a lead generation campaign and it was optimizing for Facebook leads,and it was for a virtual event.,So this is a campaign that we will be analyzing.,But before we start talking about our important numbers and what sort of,numbers and metrics I would add to our view here for this example, I just want,to say that those important numbers,are going to change depending on your campaign objectives.,So if you're doing a brand awareness campaign, you're going to be looking,and you're going to want to add certain metrics to your view that are,different than a traffic campaign, because your objective is different.,And same thing with the conversion campaigns.,If you're doing a conversion campaign, let's say for an e-commerce store,where you're trying to send traffic to the website so that they can convert.,You're definitely going to be looking at metrics like the purchase,value or the return on ad spend.,But for lead generation campaign, we're diff we're looking at different metrics.,Yes.,We're going to be looking at metrics that are really similar, especially in,the upper funnel, like the click-through rate or the impressions, but some metrics,lower down the funnel, are going to be a little bit different because here we're,probably optimizing for the lowest cost per lead, especially if it's an event.,So I just wanted to mention that before we go and start adding those metrics.,So now to add are important numbers or metrics to review we're going to,click right here on columns, and we're going to want to click on customized,columns, but if you see above here.,Those are all I guess, templates that are already made for you, which,will add certain metrics to review.,Now we're not going to explore all of these in this video, but,if ever you want to see some of the pre-made I guess, templates,,this is where you could find them.,We're going to click on customize columns to create our own view.,Now, what you see on the left are all the metrics that you can,potentially add to your view.,On the right.,Those are all the metrics that you currently have in your view and you,can always just remove them or order them just by clicking it and dragging.,And the X button is obviously to remove them.,If you don't see a metric that you'd like to add to your view, there's also,an option to create a custom metric.,So you can just click that and then create your own metric, which is pretty cool.,But I won't be covering that in this video.,Now, what we're going to do is we're actually going to start with some metrics,that are a little bit higher in funnel.,And then I'll talk about some other metrics that are probably middle,funnel and then lower funnel.,So the first one that I want to add to my view is actually the click through rate.,And the click-through rate.,I won't actually add the CTRL.,You can add that to your view, but the one that I really like to see is the,CTR, but the link click-through rate, the reason for that is because if I add this,one, well, if someone clicks a comment or someone clicks a picture or any sort,of clicks, that's what we're going to.,That's what Facebook would count as a click.,And I only want to see the CTR for the people that are,actually clicking on the link.,So I'm going to be choosing this one here.,CTR link click through rate.,The next thing I want to add to my view is a CPM.,So CPM stands for cost per thousand impressions.,And the reason I want to add this to my view is especially if one ad or ad,set, isn't really getting conversions or results, I'll be able to see how much,I'm paying for a thousand impression.,And since I've been doing this for a long time, I know how much or about,how much I should pay for a thousand impressions for a certain industry.,So that's why I always like to add CPM to my view, now, another,one that I'll add is a CPC a little bit like the click through rate,I don't like to add the CPC all.,You can definitely add it to your view, but what I personally prefer,looking at is a CPC, but the cost per link click for the same reason,,I choose a CTR for link clicks.,The other metric I want to add to the view is the frequency.,So the frequency, I'll talk a little bit more about this one later, but this,is actually what tells you the average number of times each person saw your ad.,And the reason I want to add the frequency is because usually I,find that when the frequency hits a specific ratio, It also increase my,cost per result, which I don't want.,So that's why I always like to keep a close eye on the frequency.,Now that our custom column is there.,We can actually start analyzing the campaign.,Now, I just want to mention that I'm actually not the person that created,this campaign or manage this campaign.,So I'm just simply reviewing the data with you guys.,So let's start on the campaign level.,So I will obviously, going to take a look at the results.,When I'm looking and analyzing my data on the campaign level, it's,more of a high-level overview of how my campaign is performing.,Right.,Cause I can't really make too many modifications on the campaign level.,That's all done on the ad set and on the ads level, but I'll take a look,at the results and see, oh, perfect.,Were we got 430 results, uh, here's my reach.,Here's how many impressions I've got and my cost per result.,So again, before launching the campaign, I should have a good idea of what,am I willing to pay for that lead.,Some industry are going actually going to be willing to pay, let's say 20,or 30 or $40 for the lead, but for some other industry, especially if,it's like, let's say a free event.,Well, you definitely don't want to be spending 20 or $30 for the lead.,You're going to want to probably pay something way lower than that.,Because again, it's something free.,You're not earning something for every time you get a lead.,So this is why you got to know these numbers before you start,advertising, but then I'll keep scrolling and keep taking a look.,And again, it's really just a high level view of how it's,currently performing after that.,What I'll do is I'll go on the ad set.,So in these ad sets right now, we have three different ad sets.,If I go all the way to the left, I just want to mention that these,ad sets actually all use the same audiences in case you're,wondering what is the PP or no PP.,It actually stands for people.,So they are describing if some of the ads have actual image of people or not.,So we're going to get and see that once we get to the ad section.,But I just want to mention that to you.,So the first thing I'll look as the result, right.,Seeing.,Okay.,Well, which of these campaigns are generating more results.,So obviously this one right here, all site visitors, PP is definitely generating,a lot more results than the other one.,And if I were only to look at that, I would probably pause the other ones.,Right?,But that's why it's also important to keep scrolling and keep looking,at the rest of the results.,Take a look at the impressions and also take a look at the cost per result.,So what's happening right now is that this first ad set.,Is getting a lot more leads, but if you look at how much they're paying compared,to these other ad sets, they're actually, you're actually paying a little bit more.,Now.,It's not a crazy amount.,Like there's not a huge, huge gap between let's say this one,and the a dollar and 17 cents.,But it's still definitely something to take a look at, because just,based on seeing the cost per result and the results, I would definitely,not pause this ad set now because as I can see, it's generating a,cost per result of a dollar and 17.,Now what I usually do, and if I were to create a campaign like that, and,because at this point what the person that created that probably tried to do is,testing and when I'm testing and I'm not sure of something I always like to use.,Ad set budget optimization and not campaign budget optimization.,Not so now this campaign, when it was created, if I click edit, you'll see,that they are using campaign budget optimization it's on, but when you,leave it off, you can actually control,how much money you're going to be spending in each ad set and most likely.,And I think what kind of happened here is that they check to CBO.,That means that Facebook now had the choice and the option to spend their,money on whatever ad set that they wish and whatever ad set that they want.,But when you do that, you potentially are spending less money on some,other ad sets that could potentially perform better than another ad set,and that's kind of like what happened here.,So as you can see, we've only spent $26, but this one spent $369.,So what I'd like to do is control how much money I'm going to,be spending in each ad set.,And as a general rule, usually from what I see, you need at least 50 events to,start seeing a drop in cost per result.,And 50 events could mean a lead.,It could be a purchase that is just like what Facebook says in their,documentation that after 50 events you can start seeing it normalized or,actually see a drop in cost per result which this one was only at 23 results.,And if we would have used maybe someting like ABO, maybe we could,have actually seen more results for whatever the daily budget was.,If we would have set it to ABO, that is just an idea.,Um, potentially we would actually end up with the same results, but,from what I've seen, and from my experience, I like to set it up as ABO,when I'm first launching a campaign.,Now I don't want to spend too much time on campaign structure, but the second,thing that I see here, and I took a look at all these different ad sets,is that they're actually all the same.,What I personally like doing is creating different ad sets and then,having the same ads or depending on the ad sets, having pretty similar ads,so that I can only have one variable.,So if ever one ad set is performing better than the other one.,I'll know that it's because of the audience and not the ads, but,here it's more of a ad variable.,So they're using all the same ad sets and then they're using different ads,in each ad sets, which I guess could be good for testing and seeing which,ads are going to be performing better.,But I usually like, and start with the audience and then I use the same,ads, but maybe that's just more of a preference, but let's keep taking,a look at it here so I can see.,That obviously this one got more results, but it has a higher cost,per result, but it also has a lot more impressions and reach.,So let's actually take a look and see why does this ad set?,Like, why is this ad set is performing better than other ad sets?,And you did give the option to Facebook to use that budget for whatever ad set.,And why did it decide to actually spend the money on this ad set,when they're all the same audience?,So let's take a look actually at the ads now.,So I'm going to check this one and go to the ad level.,And if I look at all the ads, there is a lot of ads.,Now, if I look at another ad set, let's see, uh, this one right here.,Let's take a look and see, right.,Could that be it?,Could that actually, the reason why Facebook is spending and got more,leads with the first ad set is just because that ad set had a advantage,,it just had way more and more ads.,So then if you're giving more ads to Facebook, Facebook has like, I guess,,More weapons to go to battle with,. They have so many different variables and formats that they can potentially,use to try to find someone that would potentially convert and become a lead.,So that could potentially be one of the reason why the first ad,set is actually performing better.,And it's just because.,We gave it more information and more content so that Facebook can use that,and decide which one they want to take.,And which one do they think that a certain person would like to see.,So if we're not doing the same thing with potentially another ad, that could,potentially be the reason why it won't spend as much and potentially also not,get as good results, but let's keep analyzing things on the ad set level.,So I'm going to keep scrolling,and I actually really want to take a look at the frequency.,So the frequency and the reason why it's really important to,look at it on the ad set level.,Now keep in mind that this ad or this campaign wasn't running for too long,,but if you're running a campaign for at least a month or over a month,,you're going to see some times if you're not frequently changing,the ad your frequency going up.,And if it does go up, you could actually encounter something,that is called ad fatigue.,And that's when users are just tired of seeing the same ad and yeah, they,get annoyed and that could actually increase your cost per result.,And it is something that a lot of advertising are noticing.,That's why it's really important to keep a close eye on the frequency and a,good rule for the frequency is whenever it goes over two, take a look at it.,So you can actually use the inspect tool and take a look and see if,it increased the cost per result.,But it's good to look at the frequency on the ad set, but also on the ad level.,And usually what I'll see is on the ad set level, if ever I'm,using a retargeting audience.,So retargeting everyone that has been to a specific page on my website,,especially with iOS, I found that these audiences got a lot smaller and if,I have a really high budget, I could have maybe 20 ads in that ad set.,But if that audience is small and I have a high budget, that budget might actually,be a little bit too big for this audience.,And that's what the frequency is high.,And it's not a question of changing the ads.,It's just that the audience is potentially a little bit too,small or the budget is too big.,That's also why I like to use ad set budget optimization,when I'm starting in learning.,And it's just because I could control and potentially lower the budget.,If I see the frequency is a little bit too high on the ad set level.,So that is in terms of the frequency and that's how I would look at these metrics,,uh, when analyzing the ad sets level.,Now there's other things that you could look at, but that is how I would,go at, I guess, analyzing it without spending too much time doing it.,So let's take a look at the ads now.,So the first thing I noticed when I took a look at this ad is that mean,,this one here got all the leads.,And if I look at it, I'm pretty sure it's the same ad.,So this one compared to this one and I love the test they made because it's,basically the same thing, but I think they just used a different background color.,So this just tells you, and from what I'm seeing here is that it's only just the,color and I mean, they flip, the like the images on the other side on this one,,but if I were to manage this, I would, what I would probably do is pause this ad.,Now use the same ad and try to potentially add other images or other texts and,based just on the data that I can see here, it's probably because the white,really looks good when someone is scrolling on, let's say Facebook, it,kind of like matches with the platform.,And that could potentially be one of the reason that the ad with the,white background is performing better.,But I would look at this.,And see, how can I create something like that?,That is potentially a little bit better, but using maybe the same colors.,And then I would launch that ad and see if it's actually,performing better than this one.,So that's what I would do with this ad set.,Now let's go back to the ad set level.,And let's use this one.,So I'll site visitors general, no pep.,So this one is again the same, same audience, but instead of,showing a face of an actual person, they're just showing the ad.,And if we take a look at here, so this one got, uh, the lower,one, got a lot more results.,So let's click on view chart and see what's going on.,Okay. So that's the image.,Take a look at the other one.,So it's pretty much the same thing.,I'm not sure if I'm seeing big difference.,So it's more of the positioning.,So there's something with where they position, the information, and for,whatever reason they prefer this one.,And if I open it again, I think the logo is bigger here.,Hmm, I think it could be the logo.,So you can still see the logo here, but it's almost like hidden in the background.,So that could be it.,Honestly, if you would show me this, I think it looks different than a logo.,So just based on what I'm seeing here, I think there has to be with,something with the audience that this specific campaign is targeting.,They potentially already know the logo.,And when they're seeing this ad, they can see the full logo and it isn't,being cut out or the other one kind of blends in with the background.,And I think that could potentially be it because again, this audience,is familiar with this event and when they see the logo, they recognize it.,But when it's blended as the background, they potentially, they might not see it.,So I think that could be one of the reasons why uh, this ad,performed better than the other ad, but again, it's just an opinion.,We would have to test that out by creating another ad that truly,shows the logo inside the ad.,So, so analyzing the ads of the last ad set, that's actually the,one where all the action happens.,So let's take a look at that together.,And if I just scroll down here, I can see that this ad,definitely got a lot of results.,And if we keep looking here this one as well, and just by looking at this,,I think what's going on here is that the community, that the Measure Master,community, we're all really data driven.,Right.,And a lot of us love to learn about technical things.,And I know that Simo is really all about that.,So I personally think that the reason why this ad potentially perform,better than some other ads is with the featured image we have here of Simo.,So what I would do and how I would improve, uh, this campaign and, or,sorry, this ad set and these ads and an ad set is by creating another ad,with him as the front of the ad and try different things.,And, and I've seen in another ad set that a white background,potentially performs better.,So maybe it would actually be a good idea to just honestly do the same ad, maybe,flip the image here and put the Measure Summit on the other side and maybe do a,white background and see if that could potentially decrease the cost per result,and just get us more leads overall,and the last thing that I would recommend you to look.,And when you're analyzing things on the ads level is the frequency.,So this campaign wasn't running for too long, so the frequency won't be so high.,And especially in this ad set, because there's a lot of ads,,I'd be really surprised to see a frequency of 2.5 or over.,And if I see a frequency of two or 2.5 or even anything higher, I would take a look,and see when that frequency got to 2.5 or two, did it increase the cost per result?,And if it's still, if it's still performing really well and giving us,a lot of leads, then don't pause it.,But if it's becoming to a point that, oh, well, if I look at all time, this,ad is our winner, but in the last seven days or even 14 days, while the,frequency got way higher, and then it also started increasing the cost,per result to the point that now it's actually more expensive than other ads,,well, I'll actually do is potentially pause this ad or grab that same,ad, but change a few things in the ad so that it's not just the same,,same image and same ad for the user.,So it's really thinking about the user and think about it whenever,you're going on YouTube or Facebook.,And you're constantly seeing the same ads, it's annoying, right?,They're just like you they're humans too.,They don't like seeing the same thing over and over.,So to kind of recap this video so that, you can kind of consume it.,And after that go ads manager and kind of apply what you've learned and,how I'm personally analyzing things is that it's all about being able,to come up and generate new ideas.,So take a look at an ad set, take a look at the audience.,And see, okay, well, this one is performing well, can I try, uh, an,interest based audience or something that is kind of similar to that audience,,but not the exact same thing and test it out and you got to test it out.,And then after that, being able to do the same thing that we did today,and analyze it and look at the data,and see if it was a good idea.,And sometimes you're going to have good idea.,Sometimes you're going to have not bad ideas, but your ideas won't just,turn out to, uh, give you the results you wanted and that's totally normal.,And the same thing with ads, it's all about looking at what's currently working.,Generate new ideas, having a team or either doing yourself and being,able to implement these ideas and actually launching them pretty fast.,And then after that, just looking at the data and see if it worked or not.,And it's really all about that.,And as long as you keep doing that, you might actually start with not,the greatest results, but, but as you keep repeating this process and it's,like a circle in the loop, eventually you're going to end up with some,really good results with Facebook ads.,All right.,Thanks Cedric for this great explanation.,If this video helped you out, give it a thumbs up and I also quickly,wanted to let you know about Measure Summit, which is coming up very soon.,We have over 20 speakers talking all about measurement.,So don't miss out and get your free tickets right over here or,also, there's a link in the description down below.,Now.,My name is Julian, till next time.

How To ANALYZE Facebook Ad Results The RIGHT Way!

How To ANALYZE Facebook Ad Results The RIGHT Way!

hi guys it's ben heath from lead guru,and in this video,i'm going to show you how to analyze,your facebook ad results i'm going to,show you which metrics you need to track,you need to keep an eye on,and what data you should base your,adjustments and the optimization of your,campaigns around to help you get,better performance now before i get into,that just want to very quickly ask you,to smash a like on this video click that,like button,and of course subscribe to my youtube,channel if you are new,and you haven't done so already that,would be very much appreciated,okay so facebook ads analysis how do you,analyze your results how do you improve,performance,let's uh let's get into it so i'm in an,example facebook ad,account right now and what i'm going to,do is i'm going to quickly create an,example facebook ad campaign,and i'm going to bring up the various,metrics and data points that you need to,pay attention to,when you should pay attention to them,when you should make uh adjustments and,decisions based on what you see,and cover all that sort of stuff now i,want to quickly say that um,you know facebook ad campaign analysis,is not that,difficult it's not as difficult as most,people make it out to be facebook ads,manager looks very overwhelming looks,very,complicated and it can be but if you,know what to focus on and know what you,can ignore,it becomes a lot more straightforward so,hopefully that's what i'm going to do,for you guys,in this video so i'm just going to call,this example ad campaign,i'm going to change the campaign,objective to conversions now the,campaign objective you select,is going to dictate which metrics you,should track the data that's displayed,and all that sort of stuff,um and,that's why i want to go with conversions,because then you're going to see the,data that is far more representative,of what it is that we're going to be,going through okay,so there's our example conversions,campaign,i'm going to minimize this i'm going to,keep looking at the campaign level so,now of course facebook's default,is things like results etc etc,so the first metric and the single most,important metric that you need to keep,an eye on particularly when you're,running a conversions campaign,is your cost per result your cost per,conversion,if you're generating leads what is your,cost per lead if you're trying to,generate purchases,what is your cost per purchase and,one the first thing i will say about,that metric is that it's so,important that if that is a good number,for you,let's say your business can afford to,pay fifty dollars a lead and you're,currently generating leads for,twenty dollars twenty two dollars none,of the other metrics,none of the other points that you can,analyze,need to take place you don't need to,what bother with any of that,if your core metric your cost per result,uh your cost per conversion i shouldn't,say cost per result because if you've,got a different campaign objective your,cost per result could be something else,if your cost per conversion,is nicely profitable for your business,you know if you can,if you can afford to pay up to 15 times,the cost per purchase and you're,generating purchase for six dollars,that's fantastic and and if that's the,case,base all your decisions around cost per,result,so when you're assessing different,targeting options which one produces,the best cost per conversion when you're,assessing different ads which one,produces,the best cost per conversion pause the,underperformers go with the best,performing ones and just base everything,around cosplay conversion just ignore,all the rest of it you don't need to,worry about that,at least not initially okay i'll explain,that a bit more about that in a second,why that,little caveat comes into place it's when,you're not really generating,conversions or you're well above your,acceptable cost per conversion either,generating leads purchases app installs,whatever happens to be,that's when you need to really focus,on these other metrics and these other,data points and make adjustments,accordingly,okay so i'm going to get into that in in,a second,so that's the first one cost by,conversion the second one and this is,why i caveated the you don't need to,worry about anything else,is frequency so i'm just going to,quickly go ahead and change,the columns to delivery and you'll see,this number in here,frequency frequency refers to,the number of times on average that a,person within your target audience,has seen an ad at this stage within the,campaign you'll also see that you can,look at frequency at the ad set level,you can also look at frequency at the ad,level,let's jump back to campaign why is this,important this is probably one of the,only other metrics you need to track,if your campaign's performing well if,your campaign is delivering a great cost,per conversion,this is probably one of the only things,you need to keep an eye on,otherwise as i said just base all your,optimization decisions around cost per,conversion,but of course it sort of makes sense,that once your frequency gets above a,certain number,campaign performance is going to drop,you know if everyone in your target,audience has already seen your ad a,couple of times,well they're not gonna be bothered,they're gonna take a look at it they're,just sort of gonna,mentally ignore it because they're gonna,go i've seen that carry on scrolling,move on something else,okay so frequency is an important number,what do we tend to see we tend to see,that with cold audiences so with people,that have not interacted with your,business before,when your frequency reaches a 2 maybe,even a 2.5 in that sort of range that's,when we start to see results drop,off now there are a bunch of things you,can do to combat frequency like creating,new ads,targeting new audiences and i'll include,a link in the video description below to,another video,that talks all about how to combat add,frequency and,high frequency numbers and how you can,do what you can do to combat ad fatigue,and really get over those issues so,there are solutions but keep an eye on,frequency,if it's with cold audiences you start to,get see like it's a 2.4 or something,like that think okay,i'm now going to need to make some,changes otherwise base everything around,your cost per conversion as i've,mentioned with warm audiences so people,on your email list people have visited,your website stuff like that,you can usually get away with much,higher frequency numbers,what that is for you really depends on,your business and actually how warm,that audience is so for example someone,in my facebook group,very much follows the content that i,produce on average,i can probably get away with frequency,numbers above 10. other businesses might,struggle with,warm audience frequency numbers above a,six i've seen some campaigns can have,warm audience frequency numbers go above,20 and the still campaign still does,very well,so what i recommend with your warm,audiences is just keep a real,close eye on what that frequency is,in relation to your results so when you,start to see your results drop off from,your warm audience and they usually drop,off quite quickly when they do it,then go aha my frequency is an eight,my results in my warm audience are,really starting to tear off,i've got ad fatigue i've got a frequency,issue i need to do something about it,okay so that's one of the most important,metrics to track,is is frequency okay let's go back into,i don't want to go breakdown no let's,get back into performance which is the,default,the next thing i'm going to talk about,and this again now we're getting into,the realms if your campaign is not,delivering,and this is the stuff you want to track,because otherwise as we've already,talked about you want to be basing on,cost per conversion exclusively but,let's say your cost per conversion is,way too high,you're thinking right well i need to get,into this now i need to analyze the,various elements and work out what's,going wrong,so what i want you to do is break down,effectively your sales funnel,so we've got here default is performance,one thing i want to do,is i want to go to performance and,clicks,and then you'll see here that at the end,you're going to get a bunch of data in,here,one of the which is going to be link,clicks and cost per link click,specifically why is that important,i don't want you to optimize for the,lowest cost per link click that's what a,traffic campaign is and as we know,traffic campaigns do not deliver as good,results as conversion campaigns,the vast majority of time so we don't,want you to go in here and think,oh let's pause these ads with um,lower link click uh more expensive link,clicks let's pause these audiences with,more expensive links,etc etc that's not how i want to do,about it what i want you to do is take a,look at the ratio between your link,clicks,and your conversion rate so let's assume,you're sending people through to a sales,page,and you're generating tons and tons of,link clicks but very very few,conversions,what does that tell me that tells me,there's probably something wrong with,your sales page,the ad campaign was doing its job it was,getting people it's getting people,interested in the ad it was sending,people through to the website people who,are likely to purchase,but they're not purchasing because the,sales page is not doing,the work that you want it to do what,would be a low conversion rate from link,clicks,to purchases or link clicks to leads,well that very much depends on what it,is that you're offering,if you're trying to advertise a lead,magnet and get people to opt in for an,email list,you probably want a conversion rate from,link clicks,to email opt-ins that's at least 20,ideally something in the 40 range,something really really high if you're,an e-commerce business,and you are start and you are sending,people through to your website to make a,direct purchase,if your conversion rate from link clicks,to purchase is less than let's say,two percent you've probably got an issue,you want to be in that sort of two to,five percent range,ideally so it really depends on what,you're advertising and you're gonna have,to work that out for your business,specifically,the way i do that is i look across all,your various campaigns things you've,done on facebook perhaps look at other,sources,you know what's the conversion rate from,other sources and try and find work out,what it should be potentially even,contact people in your industry ask,you've got friends that offer similar,things ask them what their conversion,rates are,on their sales pages on their landing,pages because as i said if you're,an e-commerce business and you're,converting at half a percent so you need,to send 200 people to your website to,get a purchase,you're in trouble that's not going to,work that sales page,probably needs some work doing to it,perhaps you need some testimonials,perhaps you need some more benefits,about the product perhaps you need to,explain a video,all sorts of things you can do but just,analyze the various elements okay so,that's one thing i wanted to um,to highlight if your campaign isn't,delivering and something that we,definitely track is your link click,to conversion ratio on your facebook ad,campaigns,now something's kind of related to that,but i'm going to have to customize my,columns to bring this up,is specifically to do with e-commerce,i'm going to,go through add these in and explain what,they are so i'm going to add in my add,carts,add to cart event let's go with total,and let's go with cost,and they've you see that when you add by,the way if you're not familiar with,customizing columns you can do exactly,what i just did come in you can add in,all sorts of different,data and metrics points so i'm going to,get rid of these extra ones i just want,to have a look at my total address card,my cost,per add to cart i'm also going to do the,same with,purchases now if you're if you're,running a conversions campaign and,you're optimizing for purchases this,purchase data will be in your,um displayed in your columns anyway so,you won't need to specifically do what,i'm doing,but it doesn't hurt to show you how to,do this right so i'm going to apply this,now at the end we've got here add to,cart cost per ad card purchases and cost,per purchase,this happens quite a lot with e-commerce,businesses where we will see,very high add to carts but not many,purchases,and this is a really important piece of,analysis to do on your facebook,campaigns an important data point to,track,is that if you are seeing tons of ad to,carts but not many purchases so let's,say you're seeing 10 out of cards for,every purchase,that's too many you're always going to,have more ad to carts than you are,purchased but it shouldn't be a 10 to 1,ratio or anything close to that,if you see that sort of data you need to,make an adjustment to something,usually your checkout page potentially,delivery fee,you know if you're getting lots to add,to carts and you're whacking on a big,old delivery fee or telling people it's,going to take them two or three weeks,for them,to have their thing delivered that's,really going to get in the way of people,converting and that's why your purchase,might be very low so as i said if you're,running your campaign,you're let's scroll all the way over,you're happily going about things you're,saying that your cost per purchase is,just,way off where it needs to be this is,where you need to get more detailed more,granular,into what it is you're doing if you see,that actually your campaign's generating,lots of ads to carts,that's good to know generating lots of,ad to carts that means the campaign is,doing its job to a certain point right,people are interested they're clicking,they're they're initiating checkout,they're adding to cart they're going,through your sales process but,something's falling down,perhaps it's your checkout page okay and,i said it could be delivery it could be,the design of it,could be that something's not working,even properly or it's loading very,slowly all sorts of issues that really,get in the way these are things to,to very much focus on and break down in,a quite granular,way another metric that you can see,right here,that i think is important to keep an eye,on again if your campaigns just aren't,doing well and you can't base things,really around cost per conversion,is your cpm cpm as you can see refers to,cost per thousand impressions,cpm is how facebook thinks of,the cost of facebook advertising so when,people say like,will it be more expensive for me to,advertise in the us,versus for me to advertise in india,in cpms absolutely the us is going to be,a much more expensive market to,advertise in,but if you're selling an expensive,product in results,in cost per conversion it might be less,expensive,to advertise in the us because of course,a much higher percentage of people may,be able to afford your product or,service because,the average person in the us earns a,much larger salary than the average,person in india for example,okay so your actual cost per conversion,may be maybe much better,but when we talk about cost we're,talking about cpm,and when i'm sort of evaluating the cost,of something when it comes to facebook,advertising,i'm talking about cpm separate from,conversions okay so just want to make,that clear to start with,right what affects your cpm because,that's how facebook thinks in terms of,cost,one of the big big big things is,basically how,people are reacting to your ads what,used to be termed as the relevant score,but is now broken down into three,different metrics,quality ranking engagement ranking et,cetera et cetera and,and if your ads are not resonating very,well with your target audience,perhaps it's annoying them they're,hiding your ad they're not engaging with,it's not grabbing their attention,they're not looking at it they're not,clicking on the links they're not doing,all that sort of stuff,that's going to affect your what used to,be called relevant score your quality,ranking and things like that,and that is going to read okay,that is going to increase your cpm,because facebook rewards advertisers,that put ads on their platform,that people are interested in that are,engaging that aren't annoying,and all that sort of stuff if they,didn't facebook,may get into trouble in terms of their,ads are annoying their users so much,that their users stopped using the,platform so facebook is highly,incentivized to,reward advertisers that produce ads,that get lots of engagement that people,enjoy and all that sort of stuff and one,of the ways to express that i mean yes,you could,we could jump over to the ad level and,here we go you'll see we could have a,look at,our quality ranking our engagement rank,and conversion rate ranking and that is,important i'll get into that in a second,but where was i one of the great ways of,seeing that in in a specific number is,your cpm,so what does this mean because certain,places are much more expensive to,advertise to certain industries are much,more expensive to advertise in,you know if you're advertising like,premium insurance or,high-end financial advisory services and,you're going after people with really,high net worth,yeah they're really expensive to,advertise to because so is everyone else,right,so it's not really useful to take a look,at your cpms and be like well they're,expensive,in that case what you want to look at in,terms of cpms is the difference between,various elements in your campaign,so which ad set which targeting option,is delivering a much higher cpm,if one's let's say at 40 cpm another,one's at 15,cpm well perhaps you should ignore the,more expensive one again,with the caveat that your cost per,conversion is the first thing you,optimize around,perhaps you've got a bunch of different,ads and some have much higher cpms on,than,others and and you're trying to work out,why they want to do those ads aren't,resonating,they're not landing they're not,delivering um the sort of results that,that facebook wants from an engagement,standpoint,um and therefore your will try to,perhaps pause those and look to create,more ads,that are similar to the best performers,so that's how we would use cpm we'd use,it as a,relative tracking metric um to,assess how much facebook is liking the,various components within our campaign,and pause the other forms and optimize,accordingly,i said if i jump to the ad level you can,see that you've got these three that,used to be the ad relevance score that's,sort of broken down quality rank,engagement,ranking conversion rate ranking this is,something people pay a lot of attention,to i don't too much,they don't really give you the i just,found it much easier with a relevant,score a number out of 10. now they give,you above average below average average,et cetera et cetera,we've got all sorts of campaigns we've,got campaigns that haven't worked,that had above average we've got,campaigns that are working incredibly,well that are below average so,i don't really pay attention to this too,much okay and,there are just a million other metrics,that you could be tracking and things,you could be basing your,your data around but honestly those are,basically the things that we look at,and that we pay attention to sounds very,simplistic but to be honest,with facebook advertising with digital,marketing even with online business in,general,simple usually works much better than,overly complex it really does,and so just a quick recap you want to,start with your,cost per conversion that's by far the,most important thing if that's good you,base all your decisions around that,nothing else,always keeping an eye on frequency very,important facebook ad fatigue is a real,thing,and something you need to avoid and,mitigate when it comes about,and look at your conversion rate between,your link clicks and your cost,and your your number of conversions,where is that what should that be does,that tell you that your landing page or,sales page is not good enough,take a look at the difference between,add to cart and purchases is there an,issue with your checkout process you get,lots of ad cards for not purchase,there's something wrong there maybe it's,not the facebook ad campaign's fault or,maybe it is maybe you need to,provide more proof in your facebook ad,it may be the form of a testimonial or,review,and perhaps you need to get some more,demonstration into a video something,along those lines,and then finally your cpms right so your,cost per thousand impressions,how much does facebook like various,components of your ad campaign,and how does that impact how much you're,paying to reach people,and how does that impact how you should,optimize your campaign so hopefully,that's been useful before you go,a couple of three things i want to very,very quickly mention the first is a,webinar i've created called three
