Mastering Facebook Ads Retargeting: A Step-by-Step Guide



Hey there! Welcome back to another insightful post by Arron from Undoubt Studio.


Today, we're diving into the world of retargeting audiences in Facebook Ads. This powerful strategy allows you to reach out to specific visitors to your website who have already shown interest in your business.


Let's explore how you can create and utilize retargeting audiences effectively.


Why Retargeting Matters


Retargeting is all about reconnecting with potential customers who have interacted with your website. These individuals are already familiar with your brand, making them more likely to convert.


Let's get started on setting up your retargeting audiences.


Creating Your Custom Audiences


  1. Begin by accessing Facebook Ads Manager and navigating to your campaign at the ad set level.

  2. Scroll down until you find "Custom Audiences." If you're new to Facebook Ads or haven't created any custom audiences before, it will appear empty.

  3. Click on "Create New" to start setting up your custom audiences.

  4. Select "Custom Audiences" and a pop-up will appear. Choose "Website" as your source.


Defining Your Retargeting Audiences


Now, let's determine the specific actions that will trigger retargeting.


1. Page Views 30 Days: This audience includes individuals who have visited your website in the last 30 days. This is your broadest retargeting group.

2. View Content 30 Days: This audience is more specific, targeting those who have viewed specific content on your site in the last month.

3. Add to Cart and Initiate Checkout: These audiences target users who have displayed a higher level of intent by adding items to their cart or initiating the checkout process.

4. Purchase 30 Days: If your website has a history of purchases, create this audience to retarget individuals who have completed a purchase in the last month.


Structuring Your Retargeting Campaign


To maximize the effectiveness of your retargeting efforts, organize your campaigns into three distinct ad sets:


1. Top of the Funnel (TOF) 30 Days: Target individuals who have viewed your page or content but haven't taken further actions. These users are aware of your brand but need more information or motivation to convert.


2. Middle of the Funnel (MOF): Duplicate your TOF ad set and reconfigure it for MOF audiences. Exclude those who have purchased in the last 30 days. This set focuses on individuals who have shown higher intent by adding to cart or initiating checkout.


3. Bottom of the Funnel (BOF) 30 Days: If you have a history of purchases, create an ad set that exclusively targets recent customers who made a purchase in the last month.


Expanding Your Timeframe

Consider extending your audience timeframe beyond 30 days to capture a wider range of potential customers. The maximum is 180 days, which allows you to target individuals who engaged with your site over a longer period.


Final Thoughts


By following this structured approach to retargeting, you gain more control and insights into your ad performance. It ensures that you're reaching the right audience with the right message, ultimately leading to more conversions.
