Top-notch Software for Facebook Audience Targeting

Contents:

It’s not big news that since spring 2021, Apple has updated its privacy policy a few times already. With iOS 14.5, which became available on April 26, users got an option to opt out of any data collection and tracking in apps like Facebook and Instagram.

But what you might not know is that an unexpectedly significant amount of users (more than 96%) chose to opt out. And obviously, users’ data such as age, location, spending habits and browsing history became inaccessible to advertisers, dropping ad performance drastically.

But don’t get too upset. There are heaps of Facebook targeting tools to choose from that can help you overcome the hurdles of the new data privacy policy, and we are just about to tell you all about them. So keep reading!

1. Signum.AI

Just recently, Signum.AI released the beta version of their software that will help you improve Facebook ad campaigns’ efficiency. The cool thing is it’s not only about targeting. With one tool and just a few clicks, you’ll be able to do it all — create micro-segmented audiences, brainstorm and structure posts using an AI content generator, and design and run campaigns.

And perhaps most importantly for our post-cookie world, Signum.AI will find a perfect match for your product or service even if your audience is very narrow and quite specific. Thus you get an all-in-one tool that will reduce CAC and CPR while boosting ad conversions. And most importantly, all user data will remain private and in compliance with privacy policies.


Pricing: trial period, no credit card required.

7. AdTargeting

Are you struggling with accurate audience targeting? Do you want your Facebook ads to reach more users and bring more conversions?

And most importantly, all the scenarios can be tested and adjusted, so you are never taking a shot in the dark.

Wrapping Up

Yes, the latest Apple data privacy updates have impacted the deliverability of Facebook ads to the best audiences and limited the potential of retargeting for outside email visitors. But building your campaigns based on lookalikes remains a highly effective strategy if they are built from permission-driven email lists or using a micro-segmented audience marketplace.

And don’t take it too hard. The limitations are not almighty. First, part of your target audience is still operating on non-Apple devices. Second, Facebook isn’t sitting around. They‘ve announced the development of the next-generation digital ads that will still target users and preserve their anonymity. And after all, bot Facebook and Instagram will still be tracking user activities within the applications.
