Facebook is the largest social media platform in the world today with over 1 billion active users. The platform is ideal advertising space for all types of businesses and organizations and senior living is no exception.
The following are useful tips on how to create strong Facebook advertising for Senior Living Marketing.
1. Develop Your Buyer Personas
A buyer persona is a semi-fictional representation of your ideal customer based on market research and real data about your existing customers. Creating buyer personas is one of the keys to having an effective marketing campaign. It helps you to clearly define what message will resonate with your audience in your advertising. Know who your personas are and you will better understand how to talk to them. As a result, you will be able to attract the most valuable visitors, leads, and customers to your community.
2. Target Your Advertising
Now that you have developed your buyer persona’s you can use that information to directly target those types of people within Facebook. Not only can you run ads targeted by location and demographics within Facebook, you can also target by Behavior and Interests. For example, if your community is next to a golf course, you can run ads towards seniors who are retired and are interested in golf. This way you can focus your messaging to meet the audience where they are at today.
3. Show Off Your Brand’s Personality
Make sure when you are advertising on Facebook that you stay true to your brand and show-off your brand’s personality. Is your community about the activity? Show your residents being active? Are you near a college? Highlight this fact in your posts. Think about what will resonate with your audience and how you can make them feel comfortable and excited to visit your community.
4. Have Good Calls to Action
The Call-To-Action is the Most Important Element of your Facebook Ad. It is how you convince people to take the next step towards learning about your community. If you have a good image, it will draw people’s attention, but the CTA is where people will make their decision to actually stop and click. You want to make sure your CTA’s are as strong as possible and test to see what resonates with your audience.
5. Change Your Ad By Device
Facebook ads look different depending on what device you are browsing Facebook on. You want to make sure that your ads look their best on any device. Desktop ads should have a longer copy and link descriptions. Mobile ads should be shorter. Be sure to change up your artwork to match the medium it is being delivered in.

By thinking about your audience and what they care about and combining it with your own brand’s personality, you will be sure to do well with your Facebook advertising.
