3. Setup a Dynamic Ad Template
Once you have set up your product catalog and updated your Facebook pixel, you can create a dynamic ad template which forms the starting point for all your products.
Facebook's Dynamic ad templates let you map the data fields within your product catalog to certain places in the text of your Facebook ads.
So you are extracting certain data out of your catalog (like name, brand, price, etc) and adding it into these ad templates. These work across all devices and can be a carousel, single-product or collection format and you can send them directly on Facebook Newsfeeds or in the right-hand column.
4. Start Your Campaigns!
Facebook will now be able to use the data from your site's visitors in order to give accurate ads based on which products they browsed or keywords they searched.
Facebook Dynamic Ads are (one of) the best ways to deliver your products to key target audience at the right time - when you know you will get results.
