Frequently Asked Questions

Social media advertising is when a brand pays to have its posts appear on the feeds of a specified audience on social media. Paid ads vary depending on the platform, but they’re often designed to look like regular (organic) posts. This means that if an advertiser has a particularly snazzy piece of organic content — say, an impressive Instagram Reel or a Facebook Story — they can turn it into a sponsored post without the need to create brand-new content for ads.

Advertising on social media allows you to promote your product in the places where your most valuable customers spend their time. Thanks to extensive audience filters, paid social media posts let you target a hyper-specific group of people, which can help you grow your following and, ultimately, your customer base. You can create ads to bolster your specific business goal, whether you want to build awareness about your brand, generate leads, or increase sales.

One great thing about advertising on social media? You can set your own budget and choose how much money you want to spend on ads each day. Instagram charges you each time a user sees or interacts with your ad, so your overall cost depends on how much action your ad gets. If your budget is quickly depleting, you may want to add more money or narrow your target audience.

The cost of Instagram ads also depends on who you’re targeting, how competitive your space is, the time of year, and a few other factors.

When you advertise with Facebook Ads Manager (on Facebook or via Hootsuite), you’ll be able to set your budget and spend whatever you want on your ads. Just like on Instagram, Facebook charges by clicks, likes, actions, or impressions. Cost depends on your industry, audience, competition, and other factors. 

According to our research, you can expect to pay anywhere from $0.33 to over a dollar per click on Facebook.

Yes! You can easily extend the reach of your best Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn content using Boost on Hootsuite. It’s one of the best parts about switching to the all-in-one Hootsuite ads manager for your LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook ads.

To boost a post, tap the Advertise icon within your Hootsuite dashboard. From there, select “Facebook Boost,” “Instagram Boost,” or “LinkedIn Boost.” You can identify single posts to boost or set up Auto Boosting campaigns that automatically identify and boost published content depending on the criteria you set. 

You can also boost posts from Hootsuite Streams or while creating a new post using Hootsuite Composer.

Hootsuite Boost tells the specified social media platform which posts you want to boost and how much money you want to allocate to each one. It can help you identify the best posts to turn into ads to get them in front of more people. 

Choose either Auto Boost or Single Post Boost. Auto Boosting will automatically find and boost top content depending on your pre-set criteria. Single Post Boosting allows you to manually select a single post to boost.

Selecting “Instagram Placement,” will display your ad on both Facebook and Instagram. If one placement performs better, Hootsuite will automatically allocate more of your budget to help you reach more people.
