Start by logging into your 24SevenSocial ads account and navigate to “create ads”. The next step is to choose your correct advertising account, name your campaign, and declare any special categories it may fall under. The special categories are a “must-have”, especially if you are planning to run ads for credit, housing, employment, social and political issues, etc. In all other cases, you do not need to declare a special Instagram ad category. After you have named your campaign, you need to choose the campaign’s objective and conversion location. In this case, we have chosen traffic as the objective and our website as the conversion location. Get creative! You are now ready to move to the next part, where you need to create your Instagram ads. Choose your desired Instagram account, which you have already connected to your 24SevenSocial profile. You will then have to select your creative type. You can choose from video, carousel ads, or link/photo ads. Input your ad copy, headline, description, and creative in the “creative type” section. In our case, the creative is auto-generated from our website URL, but you are able to easily change it by clicking on the “browse” button and selecting the image you want to use for your ad. For your convenience, we have also added a widget that counts your ad copy symbols. This will help you easily see whether the ad copy’s length is suitable for the channel. Last but not least, choose your desired CTA button. It is very important to run ads that have a call to action button (CTA) as it tells your audience what you need them to do. Once this is done, you will see the ad preview on the right-hand side of your ad dashboard. It will show you exactly how your ad will be seen by your target audience. You can then adjust it to make it perfect. Instagram Ads’ Target Audience The 8th step is to define your target audience. You can also choose the location. It can be very specific or very broad. It all depends on your business’s needs. Select the age group and location type. As well as this, you can add some interests that you want your target audience to have expressed. You also have the option to exclude certain locations and add languages to your ads. On the right-hand side, you can see your audience definition, which is a forecast of how many people you may reach with your ads. If you have some saved audiences, email databases, etc., you may add a custom audience to your targeting as well. You are also able to exclude custom audiences, for example, blacklisted email accounts. 📌 See how many targeting options you can choose from using 24SevenSocial Ads.
