Facebook announced a launch of an automated advertisement manager for small businesses this week. The announcement is quite opportune as it comes during the National Small Business Week in the country.
The new program aims at small businesses with one or two people handling the entire affair. The automated manager will engage small business owners with basic queries regarding the nature of their business. Additionally, the soft tool will also provide them with suggestions on marketing budget, expected outcome, and different suggestions.
The new program does not take away anything from the previous advertisement model of Facebook. Small business owners will have complete choice regarding the budget they select. However, the new program adds an automated component to the advertisement budget. This will help small businesses automate advertising process for greater efficiency.
The click-per-advertising model would ensure that small businesses pay for direct user engagement. The new advertising program offers advertising on Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, and the Facebook Audience Network as well.
Set It and Forget It
According to Facebook’s official announcement, the “set it and forget it’ element of Facebook would embed constant updates regarding advertising campaigns. Additionally, according to Nikila Srinivasan, the Director of Product Management at Facebook, the product does not require any technical expertise and takes guesswork out of the equation.
Moreover, small business owners can synchronize their automated appointments, important event dates through various apps. Currently, the program offers synchronization for personal calendar tools like HomeAdvisor and MyTime.
Facebook has also rolled out easier ways to integrate videos in advertising campaigns. New video capabilities added provide a easy mechanism for adding image and text overlays. Additionally, using the new video editing capabilities, individuals can crop a video automatically to fit different environments.
Facebook’s new launch offers an insight into new tech on the horizon. Recently, Google also introduced a talking AI, which enabled people to book appointments. Hopefully, more innovation is on the way.
