You’ve probably heard…Facebook is going all-in on video.
Brands that use videos on Facebook reach a higher percentage of their audience with each post and drive significantly more engagement than brands that don’t.
And then there’s Facebook ads, which provide amazing targeting options at a surprisingly low cost (if you know what you’re doing).
But how do you put them together? Are Facebook videos ads even effective?
Well, according to Facebook Ad Expert Rick Mulready, the answer is a resounding “yes.” In this episode, Rick shares how to double your ROI using Facebook video ads.
You’ll discover the essential elements of a successful Facebook video ad campaign, from creating the video to targeting the right audience, and even how to use your metrics to make smart optimizations and get better results over time.
