      There are many opportunities to buy ads on Facebook, but for consistency, we head to the "Ads Manager" to get started.

    • Create Ad

      To start creating an ad, we click on the bright green "Create Ad" button in the top-right corner.

    • Marketing Objective & Name

      We select our marketing objective here. We go with Engagement, because it's probably what we'd use if we actually wanted to create an ad.

      Once you pick your ad focus, you can name the campaign. You have a chance to change the focus of your campaign after naming it.
