One of the most exciting tools in the online merchant’s social advertising arsenal is Facebook’s Carousel ads. Facebook’s Carousel format allows users the chance to showcase multiple images and links within one ad when selling on Facebook.

Better acquisition for your money.

Facebook boasts that Carousel ads have lowered advertisers cost per acquisition by 30-50% and lowered cost per click by 20-30%. While those numbers seem too good to be true, they make sense. By including more images and messages in your ads, your chance of triggering a response is much greater than with just one.

Ability To Showcase Brand/ Store’s Lifestyle

The Carousel format is great for online merchants looking to engage targeted users that would be interested in their overall store, instead of just one particular product. Using a suite of product images, eCommerce merchants can engage customers in their brand’s identity.
