What are some of the metrics that you use to measure the brand awareness of your campaigns? Reach? Impressions? Clicks?

Surely, these are important metrics, but reach and impressions can be directly correlated with budget increases and not necessarily a well performing ad. Want to really know how well people are liking your ad?

Social Reach, Social Impressions, and Social Clicks occur when a user discovers your ad through a friend engaging with it. For example, if someone shares your ad, all of their friends that see your ad from the person’s profile, will be considered social reach because they wouldn’t have seen that ad had the initial person didn’t share the ad.

Let’s Take The First Example’s Data:

That’s 70,321 additional people, 131,196 impressions, and 1451 additional clicks that occurred because people liked your ad enough to comment, share, click, like, etc.

That’s a big number!

Always remember: Facebook wants to serve the best content possible. If Facebook became solely ads, no one would use it. That’s why they want to reward you by pushing engaging content out.
