How to Create Facebook Custom Audiences
In this post I'll show you how to create a Facebook Custom Audience from people who visited your website and another example from your customers, if you have their emails.
Facebook Custom Audiences are a very powerful strategy to target your existing customers and / or people who have visited your website in the last 180 days and to get your ads a lot cheaper and very targeted.
So let's get started, shall we? 🙂
Go to your Ads Manager.
At the top select Audiences.
Now click on Create Audience > Custom Audience
Choose the type of audience you want to create.
We'll go with Customer List for now.
Now go get at least 20 emails from your customers.
If you have more emails, even better.
If you have less than 20, this won't work.
Select Copy and paste your custom list as shown below.
You should have at least 20 emails or more for it to work.
Then click on Create Audience.
And you'll now have your first Audience.
I'm going to show you another option now.
It's based on your website visitors.
Let's create a new Custom Audience.
Click on Website Traffic.
Now select People who visit specific pages.
As you can see there are other options as well as combinations, but let's keep it simple for now :).
Now enter your website domain and enter the number of days you want to include in your Custom Audience.
If you have a lot of traffic in your website, use 30 days.
If you're just starting out or don't have enough traffic, go for 180 days which is the max.
Give your Audience a name and click on Create Audience.
Congratulations, you should now have two Custom Audiences, one containing your email subscribers and another one containing your website visitors.
You can now target these Custom Audiences with your Facebook Ads and you'll see how cheaper you pay for your ads and how targeted they are.
You can also experiment with the other options and let me know how it goes.
