A new update to the audience selection in Facebook Business’s Power editor is now allowing advertisers to target their groups based on Facebook User’s posts and interaction with holiday-related keywords. This ad function will run from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve and will primarily gather data from the online sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. What this means for advertisers:
- 1. You will be able to directly target last minute, online shoppers, who could be more likely influenced by a quality promotion or engaging image.
- 2. Facebook keeps evolving its advertising through co-oping with SEO. Using keyword analysis allows them to segment different groups for advertisers in the Power Editor and Ads manager.
- 3. More value for Holiday Advertising Campaigns with the goals to sell specific products and to increase website clicks, over lead generation and Facebook Likes.
Based on this keyword analysis integration with Power Editor, we can predict and assume that Facebook will continue to do so, increasingly in 2016. Events and Holidays like the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day will more than likely receive the same treatment, allowing not only advertisers to hone in their marketing efforts, but also benefiting the customers in relevancy in the ads on their News Feed.
