Image Size & Text
Visuals Get Your Ad Noticed
If Content is king, then Visual Content (Images) reigns supreme.
When posting on social, regulations about Graphic size, the proportion of Text in the Graphic and Mobile formats are critical.
You will need a designer to speed things up.
Any other proportion and your image may get truncated.
Facebook, for example, applies quite strict restrictions to your Graphic.
With Text – Less Is More On Facebook
The recommended Facebook News Feed Image size is 1200 x 900 pixels (ratio of 4:3)
Your typical print-ready Graphic may have a significant amount of text overlay, conveying the key message.
Facebook recommends that less than 20% of the image contains text.
While they may allow you to run the advert with more text, it may not be reaching the maximum a potential audience in your target segment.
“While minimal text is still preferred, we’ve adopted a new system that allows you to run ads that would’ve been rejected under our old policy.
With our new system, ads with higher amounts of text will receive less or no delivery at all (unless we apply an exception).
You can use our tool to determine if your ad’s reach may be reduced by too much text on the ad image before you run your ad”

Social Media Ads
Social Media Targeting Tools At Your Disposal
These work in most of the main Social media platforms, but we will focus on Facebook as an example
Facebook Location Targeting
Facebook Location Targeting helps you to find people where You do business, and helps you to create adverts that are relevant to people based on where they are.
You can target people based on where they live or by key locations – eg a particular city or county. But you cal also select your audience within a custom radius of specific locations, using Geotargeting. Your adverts will only appear to facebook users while in those areas.
Facebook Interest Targeting
Facebook’s interest targeting helps you find the people who are likely to be interested in buying your product or service.
You can select a specific audience based on their interests, their activities, and the pages they’ve liked. You can also combine interests to be more specific.
Whether you want to target people who are interested in fashion or technology, fitness or business, this Facebook ad feature will help you to achieve that.
You can target people based on demographics like their age, their gender, their relationship status, their job title, or by specific life events (e.g., engagement, birthday, anniversary)
Facebook also offers financial targeting. You can specify that you only want to show it to people who make more than an income level you specify, whether it’s as low as €30,000 or more than €500,000
If you sell a pricy product, you want to make sure your ads are shown to people who can afford to buy your stuff!
Facebook’s behavior targeting lets you reach people based on purchase behaviour, device usage, and more.
Facebook uses data from third-party partners to figure out what people are purchasing,
online and offline. After matching up that data with user IDs, Facebook lets advertisers target audience segments based on thousands of different purchasing behaviors.
For instance, you can target ads to people who have purchased clothing, health and beauty, technology, or sports products. Or if you wanted to target based on travel, you could choose options such as frequent travelers, international travelers, cruises, or whether someone has used a travel app in the past month.
