Did you receive a coupon for free Facebook Ads? Instead of letting it expire because you don’t know how to use it, here is how to apply Facebook ad coupons to your Facebook account in just a few steps.
The importance of Facebook Ads
While some people believe that you shouldn’t have to use Facebook Ads to drive engagement and to grow your Facebook Page, they’re not going away anytime soon as Facebook Ads generated 49% of Facebook revenue for mobile in the last quarter. That’s a staggering number that should continue to increase as more and more users are using mobile devices.
Couple that with the fact that there are over 1 billion Facebook users and those users spend an average of 6 hours and 35 minutes on Facebook per month, hopefully you can see the power of Facebook Ads.
They provide a tremendous opportunity to grow your business – when done right.
How can ads help your business?
If you’re still not convinced, Facebook Ads can be a great way tool to advertise and promote your business to fans.
Here are some of the things running Facebook Ads can do.
- Gain more fans on your Facebook Page
- Target specific groups of users based on age, personal interests, and other Facebook Pages they like
- Target fans on desktops, tablets, or smartphones
- And more
To apply Facebook Ad coupons to your account, follow the instructions listed below.
Note: If you have multiple Facebook Ads coupons, you will need to repeat the instructions for each Facebook Ads coupon.
