Here's how to get started:
How it Works
Creating a Facebook Ad through MailChimp is a multi-step process. Here's how it works.
Design Your Ad in the Ad Builder
Connect to Facebook
Choose the Facebook Page you want to promote in the ad.
Choose your audience
Select an audience of subscribers, e-commerce customers, or a brand new audience based on interests you choose.
Set your budget
Decide how much to spend on your ad each day.
Design your ad content
Create a one-image ad, or an ad with multiple images in carousel format.
Submit and Review
Submit your ad to Facebook
After you submit and confirm your ad, we’ll send it over to Facebook for review.
Check back later
Facebook will review the ad to make sure it fits their Advertising Policy. This process can take a bit of time, depending on Facebook's queue.
Post Ad and View Results
Post ad on Facebook
When Facebook approves your ad, we'll let you know via email that your ad will appear online soon. We use Facebook's automatic placement feature to determine your ad's best location. Ads can appear in Facebook Feeds, Facebook Instant Articles, Facebook Right Column (visible on desktop only) and Audience Network (visible on mobile only).
Ad results will be updated daily in the Reports section of your MailChimp account.
Facebook ads are a simple and affordable way to boost your marketing. We don’t add any extra service fees, and you’ll only pay what Facebook charges for ads.
To purchase an ad through MailChimp, you’ll choose your target audience, and pay up front based on how many people your ad is projected to reach. We refer to this payment as your ad budget. After you design your ad and submit it to Facebook for review, we’ll let you know when it’s approved and posted to Facebook.
Here’s a new, innovative way to utilize both Facebook and MailChimp for your marketing needs.
