Tips to reduce the cost of Facebook advertising——Improve the relevance score of ads

The relevance score is officially given by Facebook to help advertisers judge the effectiveness of their advertising.

In short, the lower your ad relevance score, the smaller the area of your ad and the target audience, the worse the effect; on the contrary, the better your ad effect.

So how to improve the relevance score of ads?

  • Target your target audience more precisely, instead of expanding the scope without a target. AdTargeting provides you with a Facebook audience through keywords.
  • The style of advertising content should match your audience's preferences.
  • Change your creativity frequently. BigSpy has the most comprehensive library of creatives, and can also monitor the advertising of other advertisers.
  • Carry out A/B test and adjust strategy to create ads with the best conversion rate.
  • Avoid advertising content that violates site policies.
