It is one of the parts which is solely dependent on you. You can search for them and people will tell you different budget ideas. But it is up to your spending on Advertising. You can start with the bare minimum. I will suggest the dates you should be displaying your ads for.
So look, the ads don’t bring results in one day. You surely will see the traffic coming but to really see the results. Run your ads for at least a week to as long as a month. Spread your budget to spend over a week and then you will actually see your ads working.
Now as we have allocated the budget and decided what the objective should be. Let us set up the Audience to whom we have to target. Facebook provides you with detailed targeting by using metrics like –
Create your audience by knowing where they reside. You can be an online store or you can be a physical store. You can choose areas to target. It can even be near to your store by targeting by radius.
For online stores, you can run different campaigns to target different areas.
You can choose the age of your audience for whom your clothing can be best suitable. If you are dealing with baby clothing you can target a 30-40 age group of people as they are parents. Or, If you are targeting boys or girls, the age range can be 18 to 23. Also, If you are dealing with men and women, an age group of 23-65+ will be suitable.
Gender specification is a really helpful metric that can help you as a clothing brand. You can show ads to specific gender if you are dealing in gender-specific clothing.
Now, this is what I was telling you about. You can be detailed in choosing your audience and narrowing down the audience who wants to see your ads. You can target audience based on –
You can use these and choose the audience you want to target and capture. Also, ask yourself the question that who wants to see my ad and then choose the audience.
You can also upload your existing audience.
To broaden your audience you can mix the audience made by you through the above points and uploaded audience. Create a Lookalike audience and you will have a wider audience to target to.
Placing your ad is a crucial point. You don’t want to show your ad at a place where people won’t even take action and your ad spend goes in vain.
To save you from that Facebook recommends an Automatic Placement option which is selected by default. You can choose it or you can Manually choose where to place your ads.
You can show your ad in different types of ad formats provided by Facebook –
- Single Image
- Video Ads
- Carousel Ads
- Instant Full-Screen Experience
You can use these to display your ads. Mostly, Video Ads are used to make people aware of your brand. Carousel Ads are used to make conversions or sales. As you can portray different images in this type. These are used the most by the clothing industry.
Make sure your visuals are appealing that people stop scrolling from their feed to see what this ad is about. Visuals are the eye-catching part of your ad. They catch the eyes to make people go through what you are selling.
After Visuals, it is your content that makes people take the desired call to action you want them to take. This consists of three parts –
- Primary Text in which you tell the offer or anything related to the visual
- A Headline in which your offer resides
- Website Link which shows that if a person clicks on your ad where will they be redirected to.
Make sure you create urgency and an irresistible offer for your audience. You want them to buy and not miss this deal anyhow. Be compelling and at the same time use the least amount of words.
Remember! It is an ad and people won’t waste time paragraphs.
Congratulations! Your ad is ready to shoot and bring sales for you!
