If your budget for advertising is unlimited, you can promote all of your company’s products. However, if your company has limited budget, you should choose products and services with the following factors:

  • Solar energy products bring the most profit.
  • Solar products are the most used by many people.
  • Solar products are less competitive compared to competitors.

Besides, Abyss also shared that choosing the product type and choosing the appropriate Ad format for that product type is also extremely important. And it’s best to choose the right time to deploy conversion ads. Conversion ads are very effective at driving quick purchases, but they only work when the timing is right. As you can see, in July and August, the demand for green energy users in his area was no longer there, so the efficiency was not high.

Target customers Facebook ads for solar companies

To achieve precise targeting, Abyss used low-budget engagement campaigns. As a result, he collected information from audiences on Facebook who needed solar batteries. When targeting customers, you must rely on the following demographic information:

  • Geographical location.
  • Age, gender.
  • Interests, behavior.

In the Facebook ads campaign for solar companies, the audience that Abyss focuses on is men. People with families 55-64 years old or over 65 years old and living in big cities.

You can also refer to basic information about Facebook audiences who are interested in “Solar panel”, “Solar energy”, “Solar power” through AdTargeting.

In addition, this factor also depends on the size of the audience you are targeting.

Besides, you also need to monitor advertising status regularly to detect abnormalities and handle them promptly. If you don’t monitor regularly, your ads may be suddenly deducted or paused due to running out of budget.

I will give you advice in this section, this advice is similar to what Mr.  Abyss is doing: Using Facebook Agency Ad Account Rent from us. During the process of using the Agency advertising account, Mr. Abyss has been extremely pleased with its great features, including those that help manage and optimize advertising budgets more effectively.

The landing page is where customers will go after finishing your ad. Therefore, you need to make sure the landing page has all the information about the product including product specifications, product materials, product operating time, product price, main product tools, etc. On the landing page, I recommend using a few simple 2D graphics to highlight the purchase proposal and customer information collection form. The goal is to attract customer attention and stimulate product purchasing action.
