Premium ads on Facebook
At Facebook, we believe that businesses will be better in a connected world. We connect 800 million people and their friends to the things they care about. Your Page is the place where your business connects with people, and Facebook Ads help you reach those people, and their friends, more often. Our expanded Premium Ads in particular can be twice as effective as before. These ads put your Page’s voice on the Home Page, in front of your ideal audience. For your fans and their friends, your ad will expand to show how friends are connected to your brand alongside your message, all in one. The ad expands to include this enhanced social context at no additional cost to you. When people see the combination of your brand’s message and what their friends are saying about your brand, ad recall can double and engagement increases.

When people hear about you from friends, they listen. We’ll expand your ad with stories from friends who have already connected. Ads are better when they come from your Page posts. These Premium ads appear on the Home Page and create a seamless experience between your Page and your ads.

People can interact with your brand throughout the ad. Their interactions will generate stories about you in friends’ News Feeds, as well as on your Page.

Best practices for Page posting
Effective Facebook Ads start with strong Page posts. You should focus on posting content to your Page that people will want to engage with and share with their friends. Here are a few best practices:


Post succinct content.
Shorter posts drive higher engagement. Make sure your core message is clear and concise. Keep in mind that your ad will show the first 90 characters of your post. If the post is longer, viewers will have the option to click to see more in an overlay on the same page.


Enhance your message with a photo or video.
Ads with rich media are larger and more engaging than simple text. Whenever you want to share a message on your Page, consider using related pictures or videos to make your message stand out.


ask questions.
Your Page should be a place for conversations between you and your fans. Ask your fans and customers for their ideas and feedback. Create Questions posts or ask questions in the text of your posts. Boost them as Premium Ads to reach more people and get them talking to and about your business.


Be timely.
Your audience will be more likely to engage with your posts if you are talking about topics that are already top of mind for them, such as current events, holidays or news. For example, we’ve found that posts mentioning Independence Day on July 4th generated about 90% more engagement than all posts published on that day.


Boost posts for at least a day to reach as many people as possible.
If you’re posting multiple times/day to engage your fans organically, make sure that you promote your most important posts individually so that they run long enough to reach a larger audience.

The best way to get people to engage with your ads is to understand what your audience cares about. You should visit Page Insights regularly to track which posts resonated with your audience and generated the most engagement, then post and promote more of this type of content.
