Rush hours

Advertising on Facebook has such a targeting that different seasons, days of the week, and even a certain hour can affect the value of your ad. It’s not unusual for large companies to run studies to accumulate statistics about their peak usage and post timing, publishing infographics and blog posts about what works best for them.

Relevance score

Facebook will determine the relevance of your ad, which is called your relevance rating. Facebook calculates it based on engagement and clicks, and this may affect the cost of your effective advertising on Facebook. A higher relevancy score can reduce advertising costs. Growing relevancy indicates that your ad connects users well and meets their expectations.

Your target audience

You can focus on the audience depending on age, gender, interests, profession and geographic location. This allows you to pinpoint your goal. Using a conversion tracking system, you can also judge which geographic area or which age group responds more.

How do you decide to bet
