Broad targeting allows advertisers to build brand awareness and reach potential new customers. Historically, in more traditional marketing campaigns like print and television, advertisers have been limited to broader targeting methods. Thanks to social media, advertisers now have more detailed targeting options. As we navigate the customer journey, it is important to cast a broad net before diving deep into custom and interest-based targeting.

This approach can highlight platform’s ability to find potential customers you never would’ve known about otherwise. It’s also a good approach if you’re not sure who you want to target. If you target broadly and then check audience insights or ads reporting, you can learn more about the types of people who reacted to your ads. Broad targeting is often viewed as the first phase of the customer journey and serves as an essential component in prospecting potential customers and keeping your brand or product top of mind for current customers.

result. When trying to garner new customers, you may want to consider running brand
awareness or reach objective campaigns. The brand awareness
objective is for advertisers who want to show ads to people who are
more likely to recall them. The brand awareness objective gives you the
estimated ad recall lift (people) metric, which shows how many people we estimate
would remember your ad if we asked them within two days. While the reach objective
maximizes the number of people and how often people will see your ads. Reach is
a great choice if you want to build brand awareness, change brand perception or
show your ad to as many people in your audience as possible. To learn more
