Facebook advertising for customer acquisition

We recently attended the Heavy Chef Facebook Masterclass event in Johannesburg where Nikki Harding from the Facebook South Africa team presented useful insights into how small businesses and startups can be kickstart their brand awareness and amplify their GLOBAL customer acquisition strategy. As our key focus is to target and acquire new customers for our clients, we’ve summarised some of the main learnings from this workshop (must read for small business owners and startup founders who are using Facebook advertising for customer acquisition purposes):

  • Less is more when it comes to posting for organic reach (the more brands post on their Facebook pages, the more the decline in organic engagement which will impact organic reach).

  • Let Facebook AI do its thing - set up one ad campaign with multiple pieces of creatives (instead of setting different campaigns).

  • Don’t buy page likes, that’s money wasted. Focus on customer acquisition rather.

  • Keep in mind when targeting audiences that disclosed interests are aspirational in nature.

  • Measure offline audiences and track conversions

  • Optimize for CONVERSIONS NOT CLICKS (this is vital).

Performance marketing for a B2B tech startup

One of our recent projects involved performance marketing for a B2B tech startup based in Europe whilst targeting the US market primarily, along with a few key European regions. Working on-site at the client with their in-house data analyst, we would conceptualise, create, run and test visual (videos primarily) and text campaigns on Instagram, Facebook and Google Ads. Instagram advertising, surprisingly for a B2B brand, became the key revenue driver in terms of tracked conversions and eCommerce sales.

Part of our social media advertising strategy involved using highly targeted ad creatives coupled with Facebook’s targeting, placement, and measurement tools to gain insights, deliver ad content relevant to the user journey, and increase tracked revenue conversions. We focused on creating Custom Audiences and lookalike audiences to reach prospective customers with highly relevant content.

We also ran social media advertising campaigns aimed at entering new markets such as New Zealand, Hong Kong and UAE - with the focus on generating MQLs for the sales team.

Overall we reached ROAS of around 5, which was a higher than projected ROI.
