Facebook Advertising


Join the thousands of small business owners around the United States who have profited from running ads.

We’re a customer acquisition agency who does Facebook Advertising (and Instagram) right. 

Facebook advertising is an excellent way to reach new customers, especially when you know the audience you want to reach. That’s because Facebook ads run based on “who you want to target”, not the keyword someone types into a search box. With Facebook advertising, the power is in thinking audience-first, defining the audience(s) you aim to reach, and then using  targeted ads in Facebook’s Ad Manager to reach prospects who meet your criterion.

Depending on your goals you can accomplish anything from creating more brand awareness to actually getting actions taken like form completions and calls or even offer redemptions and sales as a result of your ads. It’s measured using the Facebook Pixel and call tracking software.

The way you can reach potential customers through Facebook ads is targeting based on Demos, Interests and even Behaviors! Here are some examples of possible ways to define your audience:

  • Geographic location (where people live or work or even visit)
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Income
  • Interests
  • Level of education
  • Facebook Behavior (what they have shown interest in)
  • Shopping behavior
  • Technology they use or have an interest in
  • Interest: Life events/ milestone events
  • Relationship Status
  • Customer status (if they have purchased from you before)
  • Interest: Employer / job title (limited cases)
  • Home ownership (1st time buyers, homeowners, renters)
  • Home type
  • Parental status/ age of children
  • Buyer profiles
  • Page fan, not a page fan etc.

When you target your audience correctly, if you show the right ads at the right time then you are much more likely to get an action taken or engagement with your ads / positive feedback. That nets you a strong Relevance Score (7-10) and a lower cost per click. So, good targeting saves you money!

The process your Facebook ad agency follows is your secret weapon for success.

How Upside Facebook Advertising Works: Unlocking Great Results for Clients

Upside uniquely gets results by following a user-driven process that engages before we sell anything, warms up audiences and gets people to listen.

We reach the right audience with the right piece of content at the right time, ultimately getting Users to take a desired action. And we have a plan to reach even more Users once it’s working.

Step 1: Discovery / Audience Definition

We learn about your business and your goals and needs. We then focus on who we want to reach with your Facebook Ads. Then, we create the right segmented advertising audiences for you (past customers, prospects, customer segments). If you are selling toys to affluent Moms with toddlers younger than 2 that’s a different audience than looking for Millennials who may want to try your new App, for example. The audience targeting has to be right.

Step 2: Strategy / Funnel Creation

Once you define who you want to reach, we help you define a practical Facebook Advertising Funnel that actually aligns to how people go about buying goods and services. Some fancy marketers call this the ‘buyer’s journey.’ We call it building a relationship on the buyer’s terms. This is the key to sales that so many marketers miss! That’s because you can’t force feed an offer to someone who is NOT interested in hearing what you have to say!

Step 3:  Ad Content Creation

After you understand the buying process, next we think about Content and what content is right at each step. And since you first need to Capture User attention before they will listen to you, you first have to pick the right content!


Remember, people on Facebook are served ads, they don’t ask for them.  How do we get people to listen when they don’t want to be interrupted?

You give Users something that’s helpful or entertaining for them first; and it may not be the content you already made or already used 100 times on YouTube. You might need to create the content! What that content should be depends on your specific situation. Video is usually an excellent media to engage.

A Sequence of Video Ads often works best. For example, if your product solves a problem, your sequence might show content that:

  • acknowledges the User’s problem with some tips
  • shows the actual solution / the value proposition
  • offers social proof e.g. testimonials
  • shares a compelling, relevant Offer

You ask for soft conversions like clicking or reading an article, and eventually drive Users toward a pre-sell or sales page. You also retarget users along the way. You want to tell a story and build the big picture to your Users that spells CREDIBILITY and TRUST. Then, eventually you can ask for a form completion or a call. Video is a powerful way to deliver content and is recommended.

Step 4: Advertising Set Up, Management & Optimization. Tracking & Reporting.

We start, run, update, measure and improve your campaigns to get you results.

We also will document findings and report results. For example, if you are a service business, you can measure how many people you reached, how many total leads you received, how much your cost per lead was, and much more. If you are a retailer you can calculate sales or coupon redemptions etc.
