What is Facebook Video Advertising?

Nothing can bring an ad to life better than a video, and since Facebook is the largest social network in the world, using their video advertising is the perfect way to expand your reach to their more than 2.8 billion active users.

What Will Facebook Video Ads Do for Our Business?

Are Facebook Video Ads worth adding to your marketing toolbox? Yes! Videos are a great way to build trust in your brand while helping to culminate long-term customer relationships. A well-designed video will help you build your brand, as well as boost your sales and conversions. Compared to other ad formats, it’s much easier to explain something with a video and it can be far more engaging.

What Are the Benefits of Facebook Video Advertising?

There are plenty of great benefits that come from using Facebook’s video advertising:

  • Videos quickly capture and keep people’s attention. 
  • Videos make your brand relatable because they gently walk your customers through your sales funnel and straight to your call to action. 
  • Video sequencing tells a story, which helps your customers form an emotional connection to your brand. 
  • Using videos is an easy way to engage your customers online. 
  • Facebook Video Advertising can give you massive worldwide exposure because of their large active-user base. 
  • Facebook videos encourage social shares and user engagement. 
  • Facebook video ads provide an incredible potential for brand awareness and increased ROI.

How Much Does Facebook Video Advertising Cost?

The cost of Facebook’s video ads is broken down by cost per view and cost per impression. Your ads are delivered after an ad auction similar to Google Ads. However, since bids fluctuate, there isn’t a cut and dry answer as to exactly how much your ads will ultimately cost. There are two factors Facebook uses to balance how they choose to show their ads. The first is creating value for advertisers and getting their ads to their target audiences. The second is providing a positive, relevant experience to the people using the ads. Then there is the auction process. 

The three factors considered in the auction process are: 

  1. The amount you are willing to pay (your bid) 
  2. Facebook’s estimate of the likely action rates 
  3. Ad quality and relevance to your target audience
