Here are some tips on how to find your target market on Facebook and how to use the platform as an effective marketing tool:

That’s where Audience Insights comes in handy. This feature helps advertisers find their audience on Facebook by showing them how many users meet specific criteria like geographic location.

What content gets the most engagement from their followers? Analyzing your competition will give you an idea of what kind of content moves with your target audience and what doesn’t resonate.

Post regular updates

You should post regular updates on your page at least once or twice weekly. Ensure that you post often enough so that people can get used to seeing your content on their news feed and become familiar with your brand or company name. Also, ensure that all your posts are relevant and valuable for your target audience.
