Sick of Facebook stifling your reach? We’ve figured out how to use ads in a smart, cost-efficient way to get around this. Most nonprofits and small campaigns don’t have the budget for TV or buying e-mail lists. Fortunately, Facebook and Twitter ad campaigns can be very cheap—you set the budget and leverage their targeting tools to connect with young progressives who aren’t involved in your work, yet. Setting up an ad is easy, but can be overwhelming. We’ll review selecting an ad objective and targeting your ad to the right people, as well as share tips on ad creative and talk through budget options. We’ll use case studies from our own ad experiments to show how we’ve found success.
