As a marketer, your advertising campaign’s objective is one of the most critical decisions you’ll make when launching a campaign on the Meta platform. Your campaign’s objective is the foundation of our campaign, and it sets the stage for the ad format, bidding options, and optimization techniques that we’ll use to achieve your goals.

The 6 objectives on the Meta platform


The Awareness objective on the Meta platform is ideal for creating a broad audience reach and increasing brand recognition. This objective is especially useful when introducing a new product or service to the market, as it helps to generate interest and curiosity among potential customers. By selecting the Awareness objective, the ad will be optimized for maximum visibility and reach, which is important for creating a strong foundation for future advertising efforts.


The Traffic objective is ideal for businesses looking to drive clicks to their website or landing page. By selecting this objective, the ad will be optimized for link clicks and shown to people who are most likely to click on the link and visit the website. This objective can be useful for driving traffic to a specific page on the website, promoting a new product or service, or encouraging sign-ups for a newsletter or event.


The Engagement objective is a good choice when your goal is to increase the level of interaction with your content, such as getting more likes, comments, shares, or event responses. By optimizing for engagement, your ads will be shown to people who are more likely to engage with your content, which can help increase brand awareness and social proof. Additionally, higher engagement rates can lead to more organic reach and potentially lower ad costs in the long run.


The objective Sales is ideal for businesses looking to drive online purchases and increase revenue. By selecting this objective, advertisers can create ads that encourage users to make a purchase directly on their website or app. Advertisers can also use the Sales objective to retarget users who have previously visited their website or added items to their cart but did not complete the purchase. This objective is particularly useful for e-commerce businesses or any company looking to boost their online sales.


The Leads objective on the Meta platform is ideal for businesses looking to gather contact information from potential customers. This objective allows advertisers to create lead generation forms that appear directly in the ad, making it easy for users to submit their information. The collected leads can then be used for future marketing efforts such as email campaigns or retargeting ads. Using the Leads objective can be an effective way to grow your customer base and increase conversions.

App Promotion

The App Promotion objective is a great choice for businesses that have mobile apps and want to increase app installations, engagement, and in-app actions. This objective is designed to reach people who are likely to install or engage with the app after seeing the ad. With this objective, advertisers can create ads that encourage people to install or open their app, drive engagement within the app, and track key events such as purchases or registrations. By using the App Promotion objective, businesses can effectively promote their mobile apps and drive meaningful actions within them.
