Facebook Ads for Roofing Companies
For a roofing business, you need to keep few things in mind while running ads. Creating ads is a really easy process. Facebook has made it as easy as uploading a post. All you have to keep in mind while running ads are these –
To target the Age group you should choose a 35-65+ years bracket. Targeting below 35 years is not your real target audience. Showing ads to them will be a waste of your dollars invested.
Targeting on location is what Roofers are bounded by. To Target the audience uses different zip codes you deal in. You can target the audience on the basis of radius. Choose a 5 to 10 mile radius to target locals. Make sure you target the “People living in this location”.
Use the Interests and Behaviors to target the audience you want. You can be targeting “Homeowners” or “Roofing” as an interest of your target audience.
Using Campaign Budget Optimization will be helpful as its test and invests in the best-performing ad for each given audience, thereby maximizing ad spend results in real-time.
Make sure your offer is not at all ignorable. You should be offering something they would like to take and get the lead. You can use “Free Consultation” for the first check. These offers are really helpful and entice people to click.
Having low friction offers which says “Only available on purchase of $X”. Such offers are not at all enticing as not everyone is ready to spend that much.
Choose your Ad Format wisely. It is advised to use a Video Ad because of the high engagement rate it has. You can also choose an image ad with one of your roof projects. Carousel Ads can be helpful if you provide other services along with Roofing. Make your visuals eye-catching so that they stop the people from scrolling.
Leveraging Lead Ads
Instead of investing in a Landing Page. Or if you don’t have a website. Using Lead Forms by Facebook will be really helpful. You need to fill in what information you need of your audience. As you will use these you will see how easy an experience it will be for your audience. This will increase the leads you are getting.
Use the Lookalike of the Audience you have already shown your ads. make sure you only use those audiences who have converted. Create a Lookalike of this audience. This will make a similar-looking audience that will also be interested in your services.
Upload the audience data you currently have. You can show them ads by targeting and showing them offers again. These already know you and it will be really easy to convert them.
