Businesses should implement A/B split testing to design hyper-targeted messages that resonate with their target audiences.

Before creating Facebook ads, marketers should make sure they have enough audience data. Apart from considering Facebook data, marketers should also include: Google Ads and Microsoft Ads PPC campaign data, competitive analysis, real-time analytics on website and marketing channel, as well as survey questionnaires.

Companies should create a buyer persona and upload all relevant details to reduce targeting errors and hyper-focus the targeting parameters. Marketers should then segment their buyer persona based on demographics, psychographics and other recorded consumer behaviour.
