A credit or debit card is essential for account initiation. Rest assured, you’ll only be charged for the ads that grace your campaigns. Precisely, the billing is tailored to instances when individuals click on your ads and find themselves directed to your website.

Next, I want you to pay attention to two types of ad objectives that are extremely suitable for advertising babysitting services: Facebook Lead Ads and Conversion Ads. Especially Facebook Lead Ads Appointment Scheduling which I shared in a previous article, you can read it to understand how it works. For the remaining advertising goals, I’ll show you how you can get started:

Step 1: Access Meta Ads Manager

Access Meta Ads Manager, the menu below appears and you just need to press the green “+ Create” button.

For those who are new to Facebook Ads and want to save time, you should choose “Advantage+ shopping campaign”. If you want to monitor regularly to optimize advertising, you should choose “Manual sales campaign”. I will explain these two options clearly later in the article. Currently, I prioritize using “Manual sales campaign” so I will continue with this option.

Step 6 Audience settings

Step 6: Audience settings

In step 6, pay attention to the “Locations” section as well. If your babysitting service is already present in many countries, you have many opportunities to target many countries. But if you only care about customers in your area, pay attention to the radius when choosing “Drop pin”.

In your first campaigns, I recommend setting a low budget with a wide target radius to find out information about customers interested in your services. Once you understand the customers in your area, you can create high-budget campaigns and narrow your targeting. For example, in the case shown in the image above, I am only interested in customers living in Berlin within a 10-mile radius.

Next, you can choose the age and gender of your audience based on the information you found out in advance.

Step 7: Choose Ad Placement

Select Ad Placement. The next menu asks you to choose the ad display location. Currently, Facebook integrates ad display positions on Instagram, so you should be careful in choosing display positions. Here, you also have 2 options: automatic setup or manual setup, I will explain this part in detail later in the article. I’m used to the manual setup option so let’s continue with that:

Step 7 Choose Ad Placement

Step 7: Choose Ad Placement

When selecting “Manual placements”, Facebook asks you to choose the following options:

  • “Platforms”: the platform you want to display ads on, it can be the ad display network of Facebook, Instagram, or Messenger.
  • “Placements”: The location where you want your ads to display: “Newsfeed”, “Stories and Reels”, “Search Results”, “In-stream ads for videos and reels”, “App and sites”. Currently, it is common to display ads on “Newsfeed” or “Stories and Reels”.

Step 8: Ad Preview and Publish

The last menu in this section is “Ad creative” and “Tracking”, in this section, you upload advertising content such as images or videos, next, you can select “Primary text”, “Headline”, “Description”, “Display link”. You can also choose to install Facebook Pixel to monitor, measure, and optimize advertising. In my opinion, you need to learn the anatomy of a Facebook Ad to clearly understand the components and criteria for creating good-performing advertising components.

“Manual sales campaign”/”Advantage+ shopping campaign” options

“Advantage+ shopping campaign” is Facebook’s automatic targeting option using AI.
