Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Facebook Ads

With the US election just about wrapping up lets take a look at how the top two campaigns looked on Facebook ads.

This election has seen the most money spent on social ads mainly because a) social ads are getting more expensive as competition heats up and more people understand how to make them work and b) more people than ever use social media to manage their social lives, get social news and communicate with people they care about.

Lets start with everyone favorite whipping post Donald Trump

Almost every ad the Trump campaign has run has been a video ad yet if you sort by number of likes (bad metric for determining anything other than popularity) you find that image ads tend to get far more likes.

Trump really should have taken more advantage of t-shirt sales as they are self supporting with profit and generate a lot of likes and shares. Plus they are inherently viral if people wear them.

Now for Hillary Clinton

With mostly image ads Hillary has been spamming Facebook for months with more of an emphasis of collecting email addresses so she can spam your inbox too. There also seems to be the maximum amount of text on every ad.

While savvy at selling merchandise and focusing heavily on the fact that she is a her, would definitely benefit from skin care and anti-wrinkle products such as these ones:

How to use Facebook Ads with Email ROI

There are a couple of ways to get the email ROI you are used to  when sending email using facebook ads.

These 2 methods focus on using your existing email subscribers and require no demographic research if you already know your offers convert with your current audience.

The first of the 2 methods is the simplest and only requires placing a single line of javascript on your landing page. What you are effectively doing is taking your clickers and turning them into a retargetting list.

One of the reasons we build AdsVantage was to help you bridge the creative gap.

In your email campaigns you already use keywords in your headlines and guess what, all your old headlines can be re-used as facebook ads.

The second way is a bit more complicated but not much, all you need to do is import your email subscribers list into Facebook custom audience.

Then click

next step

Finally here are your options

facebook import for custom audience  options

The idea behind why this works is because you are targeting the same people just using a different medium/media/whatever you normally call it.

Remember social ads are slightly different to email in that you really want to make ads that get shared by users. To help take the guess work out of ad creation we built AdsVantage as the first place to look when building out a social campaign.

social ads searches

Keyword searches are can be an important part social marketing research and yet most users never take advantage of this powerful feature. Because of this we have made a guide to help you find more relevant social ads and get value out of your research.

From these results the main keywords that stand out are “marketing”, “advertising” and “campaign”. Go ahead and enter those keywords into the search box in (http://app.adsvantage.net/search?q=marketing+advertis).

Pro Tip: Sometimes words have multiple ending for example advertise, advertising,  advertiser and by simply trimming your keyword down to its base letters in this case advertis you will get all variations when you search.

Next we will simply sort by most liked ads and we do this by clicking like from the sort menu.

social ads like

Scroll down and browse the most liked ads containing your keywords. Pay particular attention to advertisers promoting similar products or in similar niches.

After more searching we decided we like the look of advertiser “Russell Brunson”. To find all ads from this advertiser click on their name and again sort by likes (http://app.adsvantage.net/search?q=&advertiser=russell+brunson&sort=like&order=desc).
