If you're looking to improve your Facebook ad campaigns, you're in luck. Facebook offers a broad suite of tools that can help you customize your campaigns to achieve your goals.

Facebook Ads Manager, for example, allows advertisers to tailor campaigns across multiple dimensions, including creative format, consumer targeting, and campaign objectives.

But with so many options available, how can you be sure you're making the right choices? The answer lies in measuring the performance of different campaign attributes and determining which ones have the biggest impact on your ROI.

In this comprehensive study, we examine the key campaign attributes that define how your ads appear to audiences on their devices.

We provide insights into which attributes have the greatest impact on performance and offer best practices to help you optimize your campaigns.

Key Findings:

  • Align your optimization goal with your campaign objective: The strongest effect on performance is ensuring that your optimization goals are aligned with the desired outcomes of your campaign.

  • Use mobile-first creatives: Optimize your ad format for mobile screens using square and vertical formats.

  • Use multiple asset types: Consider mixed-format campaigns that use both video and static to give the ad auction system more room to maneuver.

  • Keep videos short: Deliver immediate brand impact with videos that are six seconds or less.

  • Optimize for sound-off experience: Video campaigns optimized for sound off perform 16% better.

  • Plan for broad targeting and high reach: Reach more people and target broadly to utilize the ad serving algorithm and improve campaign performance.

  • Allow the algorithm to select from a large number of placements: Increasing campaign efficiency with more placements maximizes your results.

Best Practices:

  • Ensure every campaign has a single, clear objective that is linked to the optimization goal.

  • Target broad audiences with limited frequency.

  • Mix ad formats across campaigns.

  • Adapt creatives to a mobile-first design.

  • Design video around short messages that can land without audio.
