howtocreateaneffectivefacebookcollaborativeads

Collaborative Ads work for brands that sell products online. These ads allow brands to run media campaigns for their products on social media platform like Facebook, and direct traffic to their retail store, website, mobile app to complete the purchase.

Before Collaborative Ads were developed, brands that maintained strong Ecommerce websites or managed storefronts in marketplaces had to rely on retailers to help them market and peddle their products.

Thanks to Collaborative Ads now acting as the middle man, brands can create campaigns for their entire catalogue without being reliant on retailers.

If you’re an Ecommerce owner, we’ll guide you through how to get started with launching collaborative ads.

1. Choose Your Retailer Partner

To get started with Collaborative Ads, you must find a merchant in your region that sells your products. The next step is to create a new ad account that will solely be used for launching Collaborative Ads. After that, you’ll receive a catalog segment from your retailer partner, which you’re free to review.

For Facebook Collaborative Ads, or CPAS, the list of participating retailers depends region by region. In Singapore, for example, brands can collaborate with Lazada, Shopee, and more.

The process of creating ad account and linking up with retailer partners can be difficult if you have little knowledge in media buying, so we’re here to help. Contact us today and our experienced media team will help you with setting up the Collaborative Ad.

2. Understand Your Audience

Collaborative Ad offers wide targeting options, you are free to set your audience targeting based on age, gender, and location, interests and behaviour. You can also target people similar to those who currently like or follow your Page. If you know your audience well, your ad can reach those who are more likely to purchase your product, thus increasing conversion.

Why Facebook Collaborative Ad is Key to Ecommerce Marketing

When it comes to Ecommerce and digital advertising, one may first think about Facebook Link Ads that drive targeted audiences to Ecommerce platforms. Now, we all know how effective it is, but Facebook took it further when they set Collaborative Ad in motion.

What is a Collaborative Ad?

Collaborative Ad, previously branded as Collaborative Performance Advertising Solutions (CPAS), is a collaborative solution brought by Facebook, allowing brands and retailers to collaborate on maximising the effectiveness of their digital sales advertising. To run Collaborative Ads, retailers share their catalogue products with the brands’ Facebook Business Manager which enables Facebook to dynamically generate advertisements to boost ecommerce sales. Brands and retailers are hence able to show their products on Facebook, Instagram and websites under the Facebook Audience Network, to audiences who are more likely to purchase.

Types of advanced campaigns that can be carried out using Collaborative Ads include retargeting of audiences who have interacted with the catalogue products on retailer partner websites or apps, to encourage them to complete their abandoned sales or to purchase related products.

With Collaborative Ads, it is simple to run marketing campaigns with personalised advertisements as Facebook will use Machine Learning to match the appropriate products to the right customers at a scale based on their interest shown on the internet. Because of the elaborate process and algorithm of Facebook Collaborative Ads, brands enjoy optimised digital advertisements to boost ecommerce sale.
