Facebook ad is one of the most popular ad publisher platform on the internet where you can boost your facebook page post to reach more people.
Here is how a boosted post looks in facebook timeline:
Each public post ( except profile pic ) on a facebook page contains a boost link at the bottom:
The “boost post” button is used to boost your facebook page post. There are exceptions like you can not boost a facebook post that is about changing profile pic and live videos.
How much does it cost to boost a post?
It depends on your budget. The more money you add the more views you get.
The minimum amount of money to run a facebook ad is 40 rupees.
I personally started a facebook page ad with 40 rupees. The following is a screenshot of my facebook post that I boosted a year ago on 40 INR budget. :
The impression was quite awasome. My post received 156 likes and 872 people views. If the ad were boosted on Rs 80 budget , It would probably receive 200-250 likes and 1700 people views .
How to add money to facebook?
Adding money to facebook account is that simple.
All you need is a varified facebook account (by varified account I mean your facebook must be email or mobile number varified) and a debit/credit card and you can also use your internet banking or paytm account as an alternate option to add money.
some important things to note before you add money:
- Use facebook web on your desktop or mobile chrome browser to add money .
