In this article, we will try to determine the length of time needed for a social media advertising campaign to be effective.
The duration of an advertising campaign is subject to many variables. This is why it is difficult to give you an exact duration. Perhaps difficult is too kind a word, rather impossible.
The amount of time it takes for an advertising campaign to be successful varies depending on your industry, where you advertise and your budget.
For example, if you have a hotel on the beach and it is only open in the summer, it will certainly not be necessary to leave campaigns active all year round. If you own a hotel-restaurant and you address lunchtime customers, advertising could have a more immediate effect. And you can try to attract customers for the next day or for the same day's service.
So that doesn't give you a lot of answers for an exact time.
For most campaigns, whatever your objective (promotion for an event, brand protection campaign etc...) you will see if your campaign works within a month after its release.
This allows Facebook to store enough data to properly analyze your campaign to see if it will work or not.
If your ads have the desired result, don't rest on your laurels and always try to optimize them!
