Dynamic Ads Drive Strong Results For Facebook Advertisers

Written by: Carolyn Berk, Content Marketing Associate

Facebook’s Dynamic Ads (formerly known as dynamic product ads, or DPAs) were launched a little over a year ago, but they’ve already proven to be an essential tool for digital marketers. This powerful retargeting solution enables advertisers to intelligently promote the most relevant products from their entire catalog on any device.

Still deciding if you should try out Dynamic Ads for your business? Here’s all you need to know about how they work and how they’re increasing revenue for Facebook advertisers.

What are Dynamic Ads?

Dynamic Ads combine the targeting functionality of Facebook’s Website Custom Audiences with a feed-driven ad unit that automatically customizes to each user’s browsing history on your site. With Dynamic Ads, you can drive more purchases by delivering ads targeted to users who may have viewed, purchased, or added a product to their shopping cart.

This hyper-personalized targeting can increase the likelihood of purchase across desktop and mobile devices. It also decreases the likelihood of wasted ad spend, since Dynamic Ads are only served for products that are in-stock. This functionality is especially useful to flash sale retailers with fast-moving inventory.
