Key benefits of the new campaign structure
Organize your campaigns into objectives
You can now set an objective (ex: clicks to website) for a campaign and group the ads that target the same audience segment into ad sets. You can then use ad sets to schedule flights with specific budgets for each of your audience segments.

Optimize audiences
Easily compare the performance of audiences in the same campaign. Plus, compare the performance of your campaigns. You can now utilize schedule and budget at the ad set level, or utilize ON/OFF controls at any level to control delivery.

Measure performance with aggregate stats
Get reports of your ad performance, including total reach, for all levels: campaigns, ad sets, and ads. You can also use our ads reporting tool to breakdown ad performance by demographics, geography and placement so you can further optimize your audiences.

New campaign structure best practices
Campaign = Objective
Decide on your objectives and then create one campaign per objective (ex: Clicks to website, Page Likes, App Installs, etc.) so you can optimize delivery, manage your spend, get the right reports, and maximize results for each objective.

Ad Set = Audience
An ad set should contain ads targeting the same audience segment (ex: F 18-24 Android) so you can easily compare and optimize audiences by adjusting schedules, budgets, or turning ON/OFF ad sets.

Ad = Creative
Multiple ads should be created in each ad set so our system can optimize for variations in placement (News Feed vs. RHS), images, video, text, or destination.
