Facebook Ads Target Countries

As we all know, when it comes to paid ads, Facebook ads especially, the success of the campaign is in the targeting, which can be defined as target audience - the countries, interests, behaviors, actions and more.

Do not look far, today I am going to give you the list of countries you can use when targeting your market on Facebook.

These places will be added in your audience countries list and it will depend on your target market and what you are advertising.

When you advertise online, the last thing you will ever do is as they say, shoot in the blue or in the dark, whichever way you heard of it; but the point here is, if you know how to run Facebook ads then you can agree with me that identifying your target market early on, the whole client persona, is a great deal and can save you a lot of money and headaches.

With the huge importance of the big four, that’s what I call it, yes, the big four. I know you have guessed it already, if not yet, I am talking about the four countries most likely to be targeted by all media buyers who sell globally - The United States of America, The United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
