Tips and Tricks for Facebook and Instagram marketing

Focus on retargeting marketing
Have specific ads for different durations of time
No extra work involved since Instagram is already tied-in
Target folks who add a product to a shopping cart or go to the checkout page and do not buy; Mikey is able to generate 30 to 40 times sales for every dollar spent on such ads
Attempt to understand what the customer is feeling when you create your ads
Not necessary for ads to direct to a homepage or product page; you can direct ads to an informative article
Invest in making good marketing videos

Facebook is really pushing videos right now
Possible to make great videos even on an iPhone
Sometimes, underproduced videos yield better results than overproduced ones
Take advantage of the cheap ad rates on Facebook

Swipe-up feature is a great and cost-effective way of driving traffic
Let your Facebook ad run for awhile in order to see good results; increase your budget gradually and avoid making sudden spurts
