How to Avoid Showing Your Social Ads at the Wrong Time

How to avoid showing your social ads at the wrong time

They say; Timing is Everything! And they’re right!

Back when I first started doing social ads I made a huge blunder!  Tune in and learn from my mistake so that you don’t waste your time and money like I did.

Social Ad Timing

As we talked about in the video, timing your social ads so that you earn the most views is crucial to your ad success.  Here’s how to find out when your fans have viewed your previous ads.

Start Navigation:  Your own Ads Manager Account < left hand navigation bar < Account Overview < Creative Reporting

Understand when fans are most likely to interact with your ads

Next step in navigation:  Breakdown < By Delivery < Time of Day

choose 'Time of Day' to see an hourly breakdown

Figure 2 – Choose ‘Time of Day’ to see an hourly breakdown

Next Breakdown choice:  Breakdown < by Time < Day

choose 'day' to see a daily breakdown of ad interaction

Ad Timing Lesson

The result of being armed with this knowledge is that you’ll have a better sense of what time of day to start running your ads and when to stop them.  This means you’ll save money by not running ads when none of your fans are paying attention.

Don’t make the same ad mistakes that I made!  By checking your ad results you’ll have a birds-eye glimpse of your viewers’ habits.  Go ahead, geek-out and save yourself time and money!
