How do you target someone who is getting married through Wedding Photography Facebook Ads?
Facebook has so much information on us that it knows what we are interested in. So let us now use this information from Facebook data sources and put it in our use.
Interest and Behaviours
The interest of an audience comprises of what they search for. What kind of videos do they like? What is type of similar posts are liked by the person? Etc. Compiling all these Facebook gets the interests and behaviors of the audience.
Now using this information. We can target ur audience which is Wedding Photographers, Wedding Dresses, Wedding Places, etc. Targeting these people will help us show only the ones who will take action.
Behaviors can include Engagement within a month, Engagement within 2 months, or Engagement within 3 months. Targeting these people tells us that they must have got engaged and are now getting married in a few weeks. Targeting them will help us niche down our audience.
It depends on the geography you deal in. You can target people of your locality or if you deal with a whole city, you can even add that to it. You can target areas and can even exclude areas where you don’t deal. It can be a part of your city.
Age Group & Gender
Just like we targeted the Interests and behaviors of our audience and where they reside. Now let us target our audience’s age group, which will reside in the age bracket of 23-50 years. There is also an option to target gender-specific. Choose what aligns with your ad.
Now as we have set an audience to target, let us prepare the ad.
Wedding Photography Facebook Ads Ideas
Facebook allows us to create an ad in various visual formats. So leveraging this, we can show a single photo which is more preferable. But a carousel ad can also help portray different images in one ad only. Check this ad which will give you an idea of the posts.
To display your work. I would suggest you make a reel video. In this, you show the wedding photographs you have taken. Put your best shots in this one. This is how your audience will know more about your work in a short period of time. Also, a result shows that ads with videos have a high engaging rate and this will help you both ways.
Now let us give it a last clearing shot. Content is with which you can swoop all these attracted audiences to back o your page or make them take the desired action. It can be a call or it can be a landing page where you have made a portfolio of your work. The ad copy consists of the main body of your ad. In this, you type about your business with a line that markets your work. With the action button lies your link to the website (if you have chosen). Below this will be the headline which shows what will result if you click the call to action button.
Make your offer as inspiring as it could be. Remember if you are chosen by the audience it is mostly on the basis of your work.
But you won’t like to lose them on an offer which is not powerful.
Now as we have set up an ad. Before shooting it let us see some examples and model them into ours.
