How to set up Facebook dark posts

July 24, 2015 - 3 Comments

Do you ever think it’s a good idea to leave your customers in the dark?

With much of what store owners post on social media, advertise online, or send out in emails, it’s a “one size fits all” approach. Products are marketed even if customers have already purchased them, which means these owners could effectively be wasting some of their hard-earned marketing dollars.

Today, we’re going to give you a brief tutorial on how to set up a dark post on Facebook for your own brand. Read along to find out more about these ads, and why keeping some fans in the dark can be so beneficial.

A beginner’s guide to using Facebook remarketing for eCommerce

June 10, 2015 - 8 Comments

Once a shopper has left your store, you might think there’s no way to get them to return. Either their mind’s made up and they’re never coming back, or they’ve gotten distracted and have forgotten about you completely. All hope is lost.

It allows eCommerce website owners to directly reach shoppers who have visited their store, viewed specific pages, or abandoned their carts. And according to research, remarketing ads sport a response rate up to 400% higher than non-targeted advertising.

If you’ve long been curious about how to retarget your visitors using Facebook ads, we’re here to help. Today we’re going to offer you a crash course in setting up your first remarketing ad, from visiting Facebook’s Ads Manager for the very first time to creating an ad that will help drive shoppers back to your website.
