Businesses have been shifting their advertising budget from Facebook and Instagram feed ads to Facebook and Instagram Stories ads due to the lower costs and better results they see with Stories ads.

Simon Lejeune, head of user acquisition at flight-booking app Hopper, told Marketing Land that they shifted 50 percent of their Instagram ads budget to Instagram Stories ads “when we realized installs were cheaper on Instagram Stories, but also that users coming from that placement were converting almost three times better than users coming from the Facebook News Feed.”

We saw similar results when we use Instagram Stories ads to promote our blog posts and podcast. Our Instagram Stories ads cost just $0.06 per click when our Facebook feed ads usually cost around $0.30 – $0.60 per click.

We would love to help you take advantage of both Facebook and Instagram Stories ads. Here’s our guide to creating thumb-stopping Stories ads.

Every business relies on words to generate sales.

Words convince and convert so, more often than not, it’s the copy that’ll decide whether your business flies or flounders.

Clearly, copywriting in business is incredibly important, but here’s the big problem:

Writing effective copy is hard.

Most people think they can write, but the reality is that persuading a complete stranger to do something through words alone is tricky.

It takes years to perfect your copywriting skills and whether you’re a business owner, a marketer or someone who just wants to create compelling content, you’ve not got the time.

But here’s the good news:

I can fast-track your copywriting ability right here, right now.

What you’re trying to do, when you tell a story, is to write about an event in your life that made you feel some particular way. And what you’re trying to do, when you tell a story, is to get the audience to have that same feeling. – Pete Docter

While we don’t typically associate the art of copywriting with social media captions, the two are deeply intertwined.

A really good caption informs us about the things we cannot immediately see and encourages us to look at an image or video more closely.

User Experience

What’s the first thing you think of when trying to promote something online? Search engine optimization. You want to write great promotional content, but you also want people to be able to find it.

But search engine optimization is not easy. That’s one of the main reasons why so many marketers avoid it as a strategy. In a recent survey from Clutch, it was evident that SEO is not the favorite technique for boosting rankings. Only 44% of digital marketing channel businesses invest in it. Instead, marketers prefer social media marketing (81%), promotion through a website (78%), and email marketing (69%).

But we have to keep in mind that SEO encompasses social media marketing and website promotion. Whatever you do, there’s no chance to avoid it. The way your website ranks in the search engine is crucial to conversions.

Speaking of effective marketing, you surely want to know about the techniques that really work in 2019. Let’s start with the list, shall we?

5 Methods For Scaling Your Facebook Advertising

Harnessing the power of Facebook’s advertising platform is a tricky road to navigate; this is especially true when it comes time to scale your advertising efforts. Just because you have experienced success at lower spending amounts doesn’t mean that you simply spend more money and generate the same success.

The Facebook algorithm is a finicky beast, and scaling must be done carefully and according to best principles.

It is important to understand that increasing your investment in Facebook ads is no minor decision. Sure, there is a vast audience to reach, but you want your pitch to those potential customers to be efficient and successful.

Let’s examine a few strategies that will propel your Facebook marketing and advertising into overdrive, moving your business forward and keeping your goals squarely on track.

People get confused when I talk about advertising on Facebook and Instagram.

Truth is, I don’t actually care about Facebook. I don’t care about social media.

I’d be thrilled to tell all of you to go and buy ads on page 187 of Vogue Magazine, or buy billboard ads and outdoor media.

The only problem is… they’re massively overpriced.

People aren’t looking at billboards. They’re not paying attention to TV commercials. They’re not reading magazines. So in reaction to that low demand, those companies have increased the price of advertising to keep it ROI positive.

That means smaller companies have a few years to take advantage of these platforms before big companies start crowding in.

But first… businesses need to adapt their mindset to the “new world” of marketing.
