When you've worked hard getting your product or service offering to a place that's converting--social media ads are often touted as the obvious and 'simple' move to grow and scale. Throw together some headlines, a description and images; give it a daily budget; and watch the profits roll in... right?
Well, the truth is, like any growth channel; ads are hard, and require some practice to get good at. Professional account managers spend hours every day inside their campaigns, tweaking and getting a 'feel for' what's working and what's not--and there really is a method to the madness of ad campaigns beyond just wrangling together a few audience interests and target locations 😅
I remember wishing there was a simple template to help me plan out (and get better at planning out!) my first campaigns.
Naturally, the spreadsheets and docs weren't quite doing it for me--so I've created this Notion Hub to help you map out every step of the Facebook (Meta) ad campaign manager journey.
Let's take a look.

1. Planning Your Funnel
The Facebook Ads Planner template in Notion starts with the Funnel. This helps you lay out your Facebook ad campaigns before you move onto their setup, allowing you to see exactly what objectives will be met by each campaign and how it fits into the broader funnel strategy.
Once you have laid out your funnel, the Facebook Ads Planner template in Notion moves onto Facebook ad campaign Objectives. This helps you set goals that tie directly to your funnel and ensure each Facebook ad campaign is working towards a bigger goal.
The basic Meta ad campaign objectives are:
