Advertising-Your-Business-on-Facebook

There are over 400,000,000 active Facebook users. If you can connect even a tiny portion of those users to your Wix website by publishing quick, effective ads throughout Facebook, you’ll effectively watch your business grow.

Creating an ad on Facebook is really easy. If you’re already a Facebook member, there’s nothing to sign up for. Simply go to Facebook’s ad creator page and get started.

If you need some help, here’s a quick step-by-step guide:

1) Start for Free – If you’re planning on upgrading your Wix site as well as advertising your business on Facebook, upgrade first! You get a free $50 Facebook Ad voucher when you upgrade your Wix site to a Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce Package. More info on that here.

2) Design Your Ad - Write something specific, compelling, and catchy. Avoid all-caps or multiple exclamation points (these titles will not be approved). The title has a 25 character limit.

3) Target Your Audience – Narrow your target to the most relevant audience. For example, if you offer a service that is only available locally, where you live, you will want to narrow your customer to that local spot.

4) Review Your Ad – Make sure everything is correct including your content, target audience, bidding amount, daily budget and duration. If all looks good, click the Place Order button and a payment option box will pop up. If you have a free Facebook Ad Voucher from Wix, enter your personal free coupon code in the billing section after you enter your credit card details. Now just submit!
