- Simply ask them to do what you want them to do.. “Order Your Pair Today by Clicking Here >> xyz website”
The best practice when sending traffic to your website from facebook ..
- Don’t send them to your main or home page. always send them to a landing page. This can be a page to collect your visitors names and emails and then redirect them to your ads product page.
- Send them directly to the product page/category page of the product you were promoting . That will greatly increase conversions vs sending to a home/main page.
Always be testing ads from all different angles, targets, audiences , product focuses etc.
More successful ecom store owner who use facebook ads, are constantly testing several new ad sets, every day or week. in the first 48-72 hours they may cut out the bad preforming ads and began to scale the profitable ads. Any time you test an ad and it doesn’t do well. You’ve figured out what doesn’t work, and collected data so next time you can improve your strategies .
Video testimonial or demonstration ads convert extremely well. (2 minutes or less)
Don’t forget to include retargeting into your website.

Shopping Cart Abandonment:
It is crucial that you have a Cart Abandonment plugin/app installed in your ecom store.
You can set this up to encourage the visitor to complete their purchase. This is money left on the table.
When you start building a subscriber list, you will want to begin emailing at least 3-5 days a week. You are building a relationship with your subscribers.
Studies show about every $1 invested into email marketing you should be pulling about $44 back average. Also those studies show that for every 1 email subscriber you have you should be getting $1 each month from your subscribers .
Better example. If I have 3,000 active subscribers, I should be averaging about $3,000/month from these subscribers.
You may also want to small test and test low priced products ranging from $19.99 – $39.99 for footwear. Your visitors may not be ready to drop $79 – $99 on a product that may not appeal to them. .
You may also want to do more product research to, because all you need to do is find 1 winner, and by winner, I mean a product that gain velocity with your ad campaign and begins selling like hotcake.
All throughout the day, most of your sells will be coming from that one product you are promoting, then you can find another, and another. If a product doesn’t WOW you or appeal to you, then why would you think your customers will ?
