Creating a Facebook ads campaign
After clicking the dots on the top left corner of your screen, you will see a green “create “ button.

1. The campaign objective
You’ll need to decide on a campaign objective. It’s important to define the goals you want to achieve before creating the correct business objective.
You have the option of creating brand awareness.
Select the “brand awareness” target in this situation. Similarly, use the “drive traffic” target if you wish to increase traffic.
Because Facebook optimizes ads differently based on your goals, you should set an objective that corresponds with your advertising goals.
2. Campaign name
You’ll need a name for your campaign. This makes organizing campaigns much easier, especially if you plan to launch many campaigns.
Furthermore, measuring the performance of your campaigns is much easier as a result of this.
3. Choose special ad categories
Now it’s time to make choices about the campaign as a whole.
To begin, you’ll need to choose special ad categories. This allows you to select the category in which your ad will display.
While this stage isn’t required, you should decide whether your ad campaign falls into one of the categories.
Second, determine whether A/B testing is required.
You may figure out which aspects of your marketing campaigns are more effective and capitalize on them by conducting experiments.
As a result, A/B testing is recommended to show you the most efficient approach to run your campaign.
Finally, there’s the matter of budgeting. All you have to do now is enable this feature.
The best way to allocate your budget on your numerous advertising is then determined by Facebook.
4. Speaking of budget
Two of the most significant aspects of Facebook ad campaigns are budgeting and bidding.
You’ll begin by deciding on your budget type. You can choose between a daily or a lifetime budget.
Select a budget amount as well. Finally, decide on a start and end date.

You have a lot of options when it comes to targeting your audience with Facebook ads.
You can select between using a previously saved audience or creating a new Facebook audience here.
6. Set placement
You can choose where your ads will show on Facebook’s network from this section.
Keep in mind, however, that the purpose of your marketing will have a big impact on where your adverts appear.
Facebook ads, for example, feed Facebook stories and search results.
