Choosing Your Advertising Platform

Don't know where to advertise your ads? Your safest and probably most effective choice would be Meta (Facebook) Ads.

Meta offers the broadest, yet most specific advertising options available on the market. Facebook is the leading platform with almost 3 BILLION monthly active users. For reference, YouTube hosts 2.2B users, TikTok has 1B, Snapchat has 750M, Pinterest has 480M, and Twitter has 300M.

Are you wondering why Instagram isn't listed? Well, that's because it is owned by Meta, adding about 1.4B active users each month to Meta Ads. And yes, you can post Instagram ads through Meta.

Facebook Ads can even offer more nuanced targeting with its pixel and potentially much more powerful tracking insights than Google Ads.

See what makes it so effective?

But Meta isn't all sunshine and rainbows. 90% of Meta Ads fail due to the lack of knowledge of most advertisers.

Many say that Meta is too complex, and their brains simply can't handle all the complicated steps to creating and actually publishing a successful campaign. That's why you have agencies such as Flaminet, who are ready to help you.
