New Facebook Ads Drive People To Your Store And Connects To Your Register

June 28, 2016

Facebook has announced new features that will help drive more business to brick & mortar store locations while accurately measuring a businesses Facebook mobile ad campaigns contribution in doing this. New Local Awareness Ads are designed for the small business with a single store all the way to enterprise corporations with thousands of locations.

Facebook notes that last year they launched a tool that now integrates with this new feature enabling businesses with many locations to create ads dynamically within one ad campaign.
