Custom Audience Creation

A Custom Audience is a type of Facebook ad targeting that enables advertisers to select an audience out of a previously uploaded list of customers. This list can include individuals from a directory of customers, or users tracked via  Facebook pixel that has visited (and perhaps taken actions) on a webpage, app, or maybe even a Facebook page. It is a crucial component in achieving better ROAS (Return of Ad Spend) on your media dollars through fostering engagement (and hopefully interactions) from a specially segmented group of users deemed highly likely to yield conversions. Facebook Custom Audiences will help you foresee your customers’ demands and reach out to them using the ideal message. You will be able to bid for these high-value customers more aggressively, whether you want to help them finish a purchase, or you want to upsell/cross-sell.
