If you are running a small business, you must be using Facebook for driving visitors to your site. Facebook has more than 1.09 billion daily active users. So, you can’t really afford to lose this source of traffic.
Now that you are using Facebook for advertising, you should look for efficient ways to manage your campaigns. You may be spending thousands of dollars, but it will only be of worth if you are doing it right.
It is essential to learn how to use several tools to ensure that you get the best out of your ad campaigns. Today we will be covering 5 Facebook advertising tools that will save you time and boost your return on investment (ROI).
Cost: Qwaya has three different plans. They are Premium, Business and Agency plans, starting from $149, $249 and $349 respectively. A suitable one can easily be chosen from these three.
They also offer a two-week trial period.
Qwaya is one of the most popular platforms for optimizing Facebook advertisements. This is a tool that can help you cut through the noise from over three million advertisers on Facebook. Many marketers have faced problems using Facebook’s Power Editor because it cannot split test and lack efficient reporting features. Qwaya brings you the solution to these issues.
Qwaya offers features like ad scheduling, performance-based rule setting, automation of ads, campaign organizer, link tracking of URLs to ads and dashboard integration with Google Analytics. Its best feature is its ability to automate split testing (A/B testing). With Qwaya, you can test every aspect of an ad campaign.
Cost: Starts from $1048/month per user.
It comes with a 14-day trial.
If you are looking to expand your horizon outside of Facebook, Adstage is there for you. It offers excellent information for creating Facebooks ads, and it can also be used with multiple other platforms. AdStage saves you from managing individual and separate ads by providing one dashboard to manage all of them at the same place.
With just the simple inputting of accounts, you can have access to Bing Ads, Google Adwords, Twitter, and LinkedIn networks. Having everything you need on one platform is a huge timesaver for any business.
AdStage lets you set up custom ad targeting using “and” and “or” settings. For example, you can target users who follow Melbourne Stars and either Adelaide Strikers or Sydney Sixers.
AdStage offers multiple levels of subscriptions to select from, but all of these are costly for small businesses.
Cost: Starts from 399/month

The interface and language are almost identical, and it takes very little time to get up and running with the tool. It is recommended for users who are just starting out with Facebook Ads.

Dashboards can be customized for a detailed view of your best-performing ads. As AdEspresso puts it – “Information is displayed in a clear, actionable way, making it simple to understand how your campaign is being optimized.”
