How to get more value from your Facebook Ads

There are more than 1 billion people combined on Facebook, Instagram and the publishers within the Audience Network and millions of advertisers wanting to connect with them. A single ad system powers ads across each of these platforms, evaluating billions of pairings of individual people and individual ads each day, looking for the right mix of message relevancy and potential business value. Late last week Facebook announced that it was releasing a host of education materials aimed at helping advertisers to understand how the Facebook ad auction works.

Facebook uses what is called an ad auction, which pairs individual ads with individual people, looking for an appropriate match. Its ad auction is designed to determine the best ad to show to a person at a given point in time. If your brand is using Facebook advertising to reach more people, we advise investing some time learning about these ad auctions work.


Industry Data and Statistics

Tech-savvy youth still read local newspapers

The youth are active consumers of online news yet recent research shows that they avidly read their local newspapers in print, often from cover to cover. Local newspapers present news that is still news, but is not perceived as such a ‘serious’ read and for youth this is important,” says Sarina de Beer, MD of Ask Afrika. Advertisers should be taking advantage of this recent research to reach a younger market. Local newspapers are the perfect place to advertise mobile phones, the telecommunications and cellular industry is a very competitive market, very undifferentiated. Advertising is more focused on a call to action, with low loyalty and visible promotional strategies and take-up. The youth are also more pre-occupied with brands that improve their image especially when it comes to health and beauty. There is an opportunity for this industry to reach this target group through local titles and our team can help you get there.
