The good news is that Ads Manager has ALL the data you could ever need to analyze the performance of your campaigns.
And the bad news?
Making proper sense of all these metrics is confusing…
How do you know what to look for?
Which ads are doing well and which ones are struggling?
And perhaps most importantly, how to use these metrics to diagnose specific problems all throughout your funnel?
These questions have a bigger impact than you probably think – and not understanding the true meaning behind your metrics can easily make or break the profitability of your campaigns, and even warp the reality of what’s truly going on with your ads…
On the other hand, properly analyzing Facebook Ads data within Ads Manager can definitely empower you to confidently make data-driven decisions and grow your business to new levels!
So to make things easier, I like to group various metrics based on the RELATIVE importance they each play at every step of the sales funnel.

IF problem –> Improve ad copy, creative, or audiences
MIDDLE-OF-FUNNEL METRICS: these are all about driving site visitors
-cost per click (spend/unique link clicks – Avg $1-4.
In 2018, this was $1.72)
-click through rate (unique link clicks/impressions – Avg 1-2%)
-cost per lead (spend/leads – Can range from $5-75 PER lead)
-lead form conversion rates (leads/lead form visitors – depends on the landing page)
I don’t get it. I have a ton of friends who own companies. As soon as they start making some money, they start talking to me about all kinds of investments. “Real estate’s supposed to be good.” “I wanna be an angel investor, any tips?” My usual response? “AdWords, dude!” They run these big companies, […]
About 12 years ago in 2007 I bought a condo, in Oceanside, California. At the time of purchase my credit was a solid 700 score. Life was good! However once the market started to tank, my adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) shot up through the roof, and the the value of my property went to shit. You […]
