Advertisers target users based on their location, demographics, and interests with advertisers charged per impression (how many Facebook users the ad is displayed to).
Posts can be boosted through paid advertising, just look out for the ‘Sponsored’ label, directing prospects to website pages, literature downloads, apps, and so on. Facebook’s algorithm favours content that creates conversation and interaction, so post content needs to be relevant to the target audience, high quality, and engaging.

Twitter advertisers can use a variety of targeting methods, such as by conversation topic or follower interests, in addition to text, image and video ad formats. Advertisers can also promote an event up to two weeks before and three weeks after.
Twitter does not impose a minimum ad spend and charges on performance, so is an ideal platform to derive measurable results from small budgets, such as increasing followers. As with other social media platforms, Twitter prioritises engaging ads and charges more for in-demand audiences.
The fastest paced of all social platforms, Twitter is easy to get lost in. Clear branding, compelling text, and symbology are key to stopping users mid-scroll. Twitter ads management by Fenti draws on a wealth of in-house expertise to make every one of the 280 characters work hard for your budget.
PPC Ads: How They Work
Pay per click advertising, known as PPC, is an internet-based advertising model, used to target users of online platforms such as Google Ads, Facebook Ads and YouTube Ads. Text and digital media such as images and video are the most commonly used ad formats. Platform owners charge advertisers for each ad a prospect clicks. In search engine results pages, ads tend to be positioned at the top of each page and are identifiable by an ‘Ad’ label or shopping ads on the top and right of the page. On social media platforms, ads are identified by a ‘Sponsored’ or ‘Promoted’ label.
PPC ads can be precisely targeted to display ads to specific audiences, based on their search queries, location, demographics, and more. Advertisers bid against criteria relevant to their objectives, going through a complex auctioning process to win a bid. Factors influencing ad success include the advertisers maximum cost per click and quality score to determine where the ad will rank. Ad rank = quality score x max CPC.
Savvy advertisers can expect to see a return on ad spend quickly, which is why PPC has become a popular marketing tool. Performance is trackable within the platform’s advertising suite, and within a website owner’s analytics suite, to determine how many prospects have arrived via a PPC ad.
Learning how PPC management works across one or multiple online platforms is essential to success. As with most marketing disciplines, change is constant, so advertisers must stay on top of how to build and optimise campaigns, in addition to trends relevant to campaign objectives.
