Like most Social Media marketers you have probably come across the need to set and manage an advertising campaign on Facebook. In fact, as Facebook is growing, and as organic reach has drastically decreased over the past few months, it is now almost a necessity to know your way around Facebook advertising in order to ensure your content reaches your target demographic.
Creating a campaign, mapping your audience and setting up your budget is quite straight forward and easy to do on Facebook. It is when it comes to decide on what type of bidding you should use that things get a little more complicated.
Unless you are a trained digital advertiser, the terminology is not always easy to understand. And with that, it is not always clear what each type of bidding will actually bringing terms of results.
The following infographic designed by Nanigans, a Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer, is hoping to demystify the terminology of Facebook advertising.
