Getting started with advertising on Facebook is not a complicated task, it is as with all advertising that you have good control over certain things. For example, what you want to reach out with for messages, who is your target audience, and what the purpose of your advertising is.
There are a large number of advertising models on Facebook. In this guide, we share the different ways you can advertise on Facebook – depending on what your goal is with advertising.
Anyone can advertise on Facebook, what is required is that you have a page that you manage. If you have a company where several should have the opportunity to advertise then you should get the Business Manager.
If you are managing a Facebook page, you have probably noticed that on some posts, a note comes up that says, “It is better for your post Facebook advertising than for 95% of the posts on this page. Promote it for xx $ and reach up to xxxx more users ”.
An opportunity for advertising is thus to sponsor a post that you have posted. You can do this immediately when you publish it, but a tip is to wait a few hours after you publish so that you have got the organic spread first and do not pay for clicks you received in any case.

Facebook ad targeting
Facebook has divided its objectives into three different segments – awareness, consideration, and conversion. For example, do you want to raise awareness about your business, and reach potential customers nearby, get more visitors to your website or get an offer? Think carefully about what the purpose of your ad is and choose the one that suits the best options!
You can add a target audience based on the information you have such as email addresses, phone numbers, etc. You can also choose to advertise only to your followers on Facebook or followers and their friends – canon, for example, if you want to give your followers an offer specifically for them!
