Optimization Goals for Marin Social

Introduction

In Marin Social, Optimization Goals are the key indicators which social publishers use to optimize the delivery of an ad.

If a certain section of your target audience performs better against a particular Optimization Goal, your ad will be delivered more frequently to that particular audience. In this way, the publisher can aim for optimal performance for your campaigns. 

Because of this approach, you should always select an Optimization Goal based on the ultimate conversion goal of your campaign as opposed to any intermediary targets. For example, if you were trying to drive conversions with your campaign, you wouldn't select the Link Clicks or Landing Page Views goals.
 

Optimization Goals are primarily a Facebook concept, which is why Twitter offers only a handful of options by comparison.

Below is a list of the Optimization Goals you can choose from. All campaign objectives will default to a certain Optimization Goal (for example, the App Installs campaign objective will default to the App Installs Optimization Goal), but you are free to target another goal if you wish. 

Facebook Optimization Goals  

  • Facebook Conversions: Will optimize for people more likely to make a conversion in your website.
  • Engaged Users: Will optimize for people more likely to take a particular action in your app.
  • Impressions: Increase the number of impressions with social context. I.e. with the names of one or more of the user's friends attached to the ad who have already liked the page or installed the app.
  • App Installs: Will optimize for people more likely to install your app.
  • Link Clicks: Optimizing towards clicks on the Call to Action in your Ad. Only recommended if you’re redirecting customers to a Facebook Page or Video. If you’re directing customers to your website, use Conversion or App Event optimization goals instead.

  • Page Likes: Will optimize for people more likely to like your page.
  • Landing Page Views: Will optimize for people more likely to click on your Ad’s link and load the landing page.
