Installing the Facebook Pixel

Before you begin with retargeting ads, make sure you have the Facebook Pixel installed on your website. The Pixel is a piece of code that tracks user behavior on your website, allowing Facebook to understand who has visited your site and what actions they took. You’ll need this data for effective retargeting.

Once your pixel is set up, in the Lebesgue app, Facebook’s Automated Advertising Audit section you should show a screen like this.

Creating a Custom Audience

After you installed the Facebook pixel it’s time for the next step. So, to retarget website visitors, you need to create a Custom Audience:

  1. Go to your Facebook Ads Manager and navigate to ‘Audiences.’
  2. ClickCreate Audience’ and select ‘Custom Audience.’
  3. Choose ‘Website Traffic’ to target people who’ve visited your website.
  4. Define your audience by setting parameters. For example, you can target all website visitors in the past 30 days, or you could target people who visited a specific page.

Crafting Your Facebook Carousel Ad: A Detailed Guide

Now that you created a Custom Audience, let’s see the next steps. First, you need to: 

  • Navigate to ‘Ads Manager‘ and select ‘Create.’
  • Choose your objective. ‘Conversions’ is a common objective for retargeting, but it depends on your specific goal. At Lebesgue, we suggest Conversions, as it was measured to maximize business ROI
  • In the ‘Ad Set’ section, select the Custom Audience you just created.

  • At the Ad Creative section, click ‘Manually select images, videos, and links’
  • Upload your images or videos. Remember, 3-5 elements tend to work well, but for some industries, it might be effective to use up to 10.
  • For each carousel card, add a headline, description, and a unique URL if necessary.
  • Add a ‘Call to Action‘ button such as ‘Shop Now’ or ‘Learn More’ to guide users towards taking the desired action.

Reviewing and Publishing Your Carousel Ad: Ensuring Accuracy and Relevance

Once your ad looks the way you want it to, click ‘Review’ to make sure everything is correct. If everything is in order, hit ‘Publish.’

Monitoring and Optimizing Your Carousel Ad: Achieving Continuous Improvement

After your ad is live, monitor its performance closely. Check the engagement and conversion metrics regularly and adjust your ad based on the insights you gain.

Remember, the most effective retargeting campaigns are rarely perfect from the start. They require regular monitoring, testing, and optimizing to continually improve their effectiveness. 

Summing up
