One Simple Facebook Campaign Optimization Technique You May Not be Using


Facebook campaign optimization is an ongoing process, and you’re never done. But there may be a quick win you’re not aware of.

Targeting Mobile users only when they’re on Wi-Fi.

I’ve done this with several of my clients and seen Conversion Rates increase by up to 25%.

Here’s why:

  • People on Wi-Fi are more likely to be stationary. Someone laying on their couch is much more likely to convert than someone killing time while standing in line at Whole Foods.


  • Your videos will load faster. We all know how important video is for Social, let’s make sure people can view it without any lag.


  • Downloading apps on a Mobile network can take a LONG time. Increase your click to conversion rate by targeting people on Wi-Fi. They’ll also have a better experience when they first open it.


  • If you have a slow Mobile site, it’s going to be even slower on a Mobile network. This is an issue you’ll need to address, but at least you’ll be able to provide a faster experience on Wi-Fi.


Here's how you do it:

You need to opt in to this targeting at the ‘Placements’ setting within your Ad Set.

First, select ‘Edit Placements’


Next, scroll down and select the ‘Only when connected to Wi-Fi’ option.

Wow, that was easy. You’re good to go from here.

Since we’re limiting the size of our audience, we should expect our Cost per Impression (CPM) to increase. However, if were getting more efficiency from these impressions, we can easily get a lower Cost per Acquisition (CPA).

Here’s a scenario that provides more context.

Notice, Ad Set B had a higher CPM. However, the Click Through Rate (CTR) and Conversion Rate (CVR) was also higher. As a result, this Ad Set got more conversions, at a lower price.

There ya go, try it out for yourself and let me know how it goes.

About me

I’m a former Facebook employee, and a Certified Facebook Advertising professional. Over the years, I’ve trained thousands of individuals, and worked with multiple enterprise level companies.

I know Facebook Marketing can be challenging, but if you have the determination, I can guide you through the process. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is helping people finally ‘get it’, so they can apply their business knowledge to creating profitable campaigns. 



Here's what people are saying:

“After taking Terry’s remote Digital Marketing class, I knew I wanted to work with him independently as well. Although I’ve traditionally been hesitant to partner with remote consultants, his ability to effectively communicate through screenshare makes you feel like you’re in the same room.

I’m amazed at the immediate impact his input has had on our campaigns. His targeting and delivery recommendations have helped us reduce our CPA by 50%, without the need for additional creative or website updates. As a busy entrepreneur, these quick check ins are a perfect fit for my schedule, and his detailed recaps include a clear roadmap of next steps.”
