- Select who you want to target
You can choose the target audiences based on locations, demographics, behaviors, and more categories.
The cost can vary depending on the objectives of your ads. Facebook says the average CPC (cost-per-click) for Facebook ads is $$1.72, and CPM (cost per mille) is $$7.19. For example, if your post encourages audiences to make purchases directly, it costs more than just posting content to share information or knowledge. The more competitive the industry is, the more your ads cost. You can set your budget not to exceed the amounts of money you want to invest.
4. Retarget from the data
Once you post your ads, you get the information to see who is interested in your sites the most, what types of ads are the most frequently viewed, and your ads’ conversion rate.

Facebook ads are good for making long-term relationships with your audiences. Unlike Google users who want solutions, Facebook users come to the site to connect with other users. Moreover, more and more businesses are joining Facebook advertising campaigns to segment users' ease and effectiveness. Users don’t want to see the same many ads for hair removal salons. So, rather than set your ads' goal to increase your instant sales like others do, try to make a difference. What differs from competitors? Make your audiences your fans throughout your activities on Facebook. They will be more likely to buy from you than others if they trust you and like your content.
