There are 7 tips to advertise on social networks to make the most of your budget
Have you thought about starting to use ads that are funded for your business?
If you have started, it is likely that you have developed your strategy for social networking.
It may be scary at first because you'll start allocating funds from your company's budget for sponsored ads, so it's important to do it right.
In the next seven points, I'll show you how to maximize your advertising spend while maximizing your advertising spend.
1. Know the commercial goal you are trying to achieve
As with all marketing strategies, it is very difficult to achieve your goals if you do not know your goals in the first place. Understanding the commercial goal you are trying to achieve with your ads is critical to ensuring that you choose the right social network for your ad, and choose the right ad to get the results you want.
2. Know your target audience
Each social network has different audience considerations than the other, but all provide specific ad targeting. Knowing what you're trying to reach allows you to make the most of your targeting options and ensure you get the best solution for your advertising.
Developing audience figures can help you understand which audience to focus on exactly.
Tip: Divide your audience into several groups ranging from 20 to 100 groups.
3. Allow free publications to identify your ads
You're likely to post content on multiple social networks, some of which will resonate with followers; follow any of them to be clicked, liked, shared, and commented upon. These high performing publications are the best candidates for advertising.
4. Pay for the goal that interests you: impression or interaction
Keeping your social media budget under control means thinking about whether you're designing an ad campaign based on impressions or interaction. If you pay every time someone sees an ad, your message can reach a wide network. But if you pay for interaction, you only want people who are really interested in dealing with you. Because you do not want to pay for the interaction of people who are not interested in your business.
Engagement and impression campaigns can be valuable for your business, so you have to choose the right type to align with your business goals so you only pay for real results.
Tip: Draft your ad to help people decide whether to advertise to them.
5. Tailor your ads to suit smartphones
90% of social network users browse through smartphones. This means that most social media ads are also shown on mobile devices. You should tailor your ads to fit the small screen, including images that are easy to view.
6. Test your ads to improve performance
One of the great social advertising virtues is immediate feedback, so you can measure the effectiveness of your ad in minutes and follow advanced analytics reports. The best practice is to test multiple ads with small budgets with a small audience to determine the best results, then use the winning ad in the primary campaign.
7. Measuring results
Measuring results will allow you to see if you've reached your goals, to see what worked and what did not work, to help you improve it.
Measuring your results and getting concrete data about the value your ads bring to your company (purchases, orders, etc.) is an essential part of ROI. If you can prove that your ads are paying off, you'll have the budget you need to continue your work.

Are financial and commercial transactions involving the purchase of goods, goods, and services over the Internet, in addition to marketing, supply, and demand? It includes several basic requirements: computers, the Internet and servers, programs and applications that will increase the buyer demand and increase sales. E-commerce is an interactive, interactive platform between the merchant and the consumer. A person can do everything from traditional shopping to financial and banking services such as electronic payment over the Internet.
E-commerce has several types based on the parties that are done among them:
- B2B (B2B), with electronic services and products, exchanged between them.
- Corporate and consumer e-commerce (B2C), by companies selling their services and products to the consumer directly.
- Consumer and Consumer E-commerce (C2C), whereby products and services are exchanged between consumers.
- E-commerce between consumers and companies (C2B), which is the reverse of commerce (B2C), where consumers and customers offer their services and products to companies to buy them.
E-commerce barriers and solutions
Due to the spread of e-commerce through the Internet because of its ease of access to the goods in addition to reducing the material costs, especially when renting shops and others, it was necessary to have some of the obstacles and challenges faced by them, including:
Create a convenient shopping experience with a particular thing
Consumers need to unify what they see on the ground in traditional and online stores, and matching goods, so traders can solve this problem by synchronizing goods in stores with those on the Internet to make it easier for consumers to buy.
Shipping & Tracking Shipping
Most shoppers on the Internet want to ship their goods to them, so traders should use shipping companies to deliver goods to their owners for a fee instead of shipping, and there must be notifications to alert people and help them track their cargo.
Fear of international sales
Many traders face the problem of rushing to sell their goods internationally for fear of legal consequences, so these problems are solved by traders trying to price their goods and get their own brands to follow the quality standards, which provides them with an important source of revenue.
Online commerce is plagued by fraudulent payments, and this problem is resolved by obtaining a security certificate that encrypts the payment process, as well as using a good payment processor to ensure greater security.
Loss of customer loyalty
Many companies may suffer huge losses because their customers turn to other companies because of poor customer service and better discounts. These problems are solved by providing better quality customer service, monitoring customer interaction, and using technology to care for customers.

We’re big fans of motion graphics. It’s not because they’re pretty or feature cool animations. It’s because they’re a unique way to communicate. They blend the best of visual communication with motion storytelling and audio to create an engaging piece of content that helps brands share their story, reach people in different ways, and present their message in a compelling package. (That’s why we think they belong in every content marketers’ mix.)
OK, But What Are Motion Graphics?
There can be some confusion about this format. Are they videos? Are they cartoons? Basically, a motion graphic is our industry’s term for animated video. They may be 2D animations, 3D renderings, or GIFS. They may include audio, voice over, or sound effects. They may also incorporate technology like 360-degree video, Virtual Reality, or Augmented Reality. But you’re probably most familiar with them as animated videos.
How Do Motion Graphics Help Brands?
A healthy content strategy includes a mix of content, including articles, infographics, e-books, and more. But there’s no denying people are more and more interested in video. More media platforms support video, and people are coming to prefer—if not expect—information to be delivered in that package. (According to a 2014 Levels Beyond survey, 40% of consumers said they would rather watch a brand video than read the same information.)
For marketers, this is an exciting opportunity to explore motion graphics. No matter your communication needs, there are plenty of applications for motion graphics at all touchpoints.
Sales collateral: Company info, product info, or anything that a sales team regularly communicates. (Turning that info into a motion graphic can save time and energy.)
The 5 Biggest Benefits of Motion Graphics:
What makes motion graphics so special? It’s a mix of both what they do for the viewer and how they help you tell your brand story.
1) They’re Emotionally Captivating
Beyond being attention-grabbing, motion graphics affect our emotions; it’s actually a biological response. Thanks to the phenomenon of emotional contagion, we immediately empathize with and mirror the emotions of the experiences we see depicted on a screen. (That’s why you experience physical fear in a horror movie or joy in a rom-com.)
When you are telling emotional stories, motion graphics give you many tools to help you communicate. Moody music, powerful voiceover, and stunning visuals can all work together to build an impactful story. (On that note, motion graphics can give you more control over how you tell a story than other video formats; live-action productions rely on things like actors, sets, weather, etc., which make it harder to control the outcome. With motion, if it’s on the storyboard, you can do it.)
2) They Distill Information for Easy Comprehension:
Visual communication is so effective because it targets the way your brain processes information. In fact, visual processing is nearly instant. (A 2014 MIT study found that you can process visual information in as little as 13 milliseconds.) That’s why many things are easier to understand if you can “see” them. Through visual storytelling, motion graphics help break down complex information, delivering the message simply and clearly. This is especially useful for:
3) They’re a passive experience:
Tubular Insights reports that consumers spend around 6 hours per week watching video content on social media networks. It’s no surprise. We all remember why we were so happy when a substitute teacher put on a video in class; it meant we didn’t have to do anything. Motion graphics are the same. Viewers don’t have to read, explore data, or exert much mental energy. They just have to press play and sit back. (Remember that the majority of consumers would rather watch than reading.) When you need to deliver a contained message, doing so with motion graphics will make it easier for viewers to consume it.
4) They Can Be Repurposed:
Now that social and media platforms support video, you can disseminate your motion graphics in many places and in many ways, helping extend the lifecycle of a campaign. You might break up a video to create content tailored for specific groups. You might add your motion graphic to a presentation or e-book. With evergreen topics or explainer videos, you have a piece of a well-designed piece of communication that can serve you well for years.
5) They’re Great When You’re Short on Time:
Most motion graphics are 30 seconds to 3 minutes long, which is incredibly helpful when you need to make an impact ASAP. (This is especially useful on social. According to a 2015 Facebook study, even watching under 10 seconds of a video can help increase brand awareness and build purchase intent.) By combining audio and visuals, motion graphics make the most of humans’ information-processing abilities, letting you say more with less content. What might be explained in a 1,500-word article can be shown in a minute. A complicated process can be visually explained in 15 seconds. Their inherently visual nature also makes motion graphics useful if you are in an environment where you can’t rely on audio (e.g., a busy trade show floor).
