Ads to Boost Sales? Only creating Facebook
Catalog Ads will not suffice if your goal is
boosting your sales hugely. You need to adopt
tricks and techniques to optimize your ads to
help you design more effective Facebook
Ads. What follows are some practical ways to
optimize your Facebook Catalog Ads which will
definitely help you scale up your sales! 1.
Create Engaging Content Make your ads engaging.
Try to communicate with the buyers through the
ads. Do not focus on selling your products only.
Instead, try to feature meaningful content that
will help you connect with your potential
buyers. Content like this will gradually create
your brand identity. Over the years, it has
been observed that people might overlook a sales
ad very quickly. Still, if there is some unique
and extraordinary message in the ad content, it
is bound to catch the viewers attention, even
if it is for a few seconds. And thats how long
it takes to hook any buyer, a few seconds!
  • Try to understand what you want to do with your
    brand. Find the purpose of your business, and
    focus on that. Sales will come along!
  • Offer Offers
  • Everybody loves offers or sales. And when you
    create an ad dedicated to the offers you have on
    your business, its sure to catch peoples
    attention. The Facebook ads can be designed in
    such a way so that the buyers can directly click
    on a Buy option from the ad.
  • It makes the whole thing very easy for the
    customers as they do not need to visit your
    website separately for this. Use this technique,
    and you will see the difference. When you flaunt
    your offer announcements like this through ads,
    it can also work as social proof of your
  • Wondering how?
  • Well, there is this little trick of showing
    people how many others have also claimed the
    offer you have given. The bigger the number, the
    more authenticity you can attain. When a
    potential buyer sees texts like 1459 people have
    also claimed this offer, it can surely make an
    impression on them!
  • Opt for a Carousel for Different Products
  • A carousel is a very effective technique to
    decrease the costs of marketing. You already
    know that you can display more than one product
    on a carousel, and this gives you the leverage
    of saving a lot of money that you would otherwise
    spend on multiple ads.
  • In addition to that, these ads can definitely be
    unique to look at, and the interested buyers can
    get to know about several products
    simultaneously. This saves their time as well.
    Besides, they can also compare your products to
    choose which one of these they would like to
  • You can also choose a carousel to use upselling
    and cross-selling techniques. When customers see
    your carousel and go through the products you are
    offering, they can very quickly change their
    minds and opt for a more expensive item than the
    one they were previously willing to go for. This
    way, your sales are bound to increase.
  • Go for Videos
  • Videos can prove much worth to you than static
    content like images, and it is a psychological
    fact. When a viewer sees a video, they stop. Even
    if it is for a second, they stop. In contrast,
    they will likely skip the image ads.
  • Videos can be made in a very engaging tone as
    well, and you can use videos to create a
    personal connection with your customer base. You
    can take the help of emotional facts and current
    things going on in the world to use in the ads if
    possible, and it is sure to create a more
    significant impact on the customers and your
  • Besides, there is another benefit of using video
    ads for Facebook catalogs. You might not show
    your stores products instead, you can choose to
    show your buyers how these products are being
    manufactured or prepared.
  • People like the power of knowledge even more
    these days. And this kind of action will give
    them clarity about you as a business owner. They
    will start trusting you and trust me, which
    would immensely impact your sales!
  • Use a Dedicated Call-to-action Button
  • A call-to-action button is a must for every ad.
    Without this, your whole purpose will seem lost.
    What is the point of showcasing such unique
    products and services if your customers cannot
    find where to contact you or where to avail of
  • So, you can understand how crucial it is that you
    set up a call-to-action button within your
    Facebook Catalog Ads. Besides, you can also
    customize these, and you can give your buyer the
    option to either buy the products or contact you
    or anything else.
  • Facebook gives you the option to custom-make your
    call-to-action messages now. Isnt that great?
  • Use an Already Popular Campaign
  • If you have been running a business for quite
    some time, there must be some content or posts
    which you found to create more hype among people
    than the others. Use these posts.
  • When you start creating product catalogs, focus
    on the items that have grabbed more attention
    from the viewers and publish those again in
    different types of ads. You can also republish
    those ads to your benefit.
This technique is helpful because it helps you
minimize your risks. You see, you are investing
a significant amount of money in publishing these
ads, right? But you do not know how well they
will perform and whether or not these ads will
fulfill your goals. When you use content that
has already proved beneficial for your business
in the past, you can lessen the risk and invest
money in it with an ensured heart. 7. Optimize
the Images It goes without telling how vital
images are for your ads, and an ad with only text
is likely to bring almost no value to your
business. You have to utilize your product photos
or any relevant photo. But for doing that, you
need to optimize the images. You cannot just use
any image that you might feel fits the ads.
Instead, research what the customers want to see
and what is likely to soothe their eyes or catch
their attention. Research has found that putting
a white background in the ads usually elevates
your product features, and these ads are usually
more effective than darker backgrounds. Another
little trick that can come in handy is displaying
your product on the right side of the
image. Confused? Well, it is mainly a
psychological fact. People tend to notice things
on the right side of their eyes, and in this
way, you can deliberately point your customers
towards what you want them to see. Conclusion Fac
ebook Catalog Ads can prove to be gems for you
only if you use them properly. Make a

catalogs and catalog ads. And use the techniques
we suggested in this article. These are some
outstanding ones which can guarantee you a rise
in sales. A Facebook Catalog Ad that is pleasant
looking, containing all the relevant information
related to your products, with a call-to-action
button and optimized images, can drive more and
more people towards your business. Besides,
engaging video adverts and different types of
catalogs can also add value to your ad
campaigns. We would love to hear which one of
