Facebook explores the impact of ad frequency on the performance and engagement of brands

Facebook's new study sheds lights on the importance of ad frequency in maximizing the engagement on the respective sites. Basically, frequency calls for the number of times an advertisement of a particular product is shown to the user. According to the report, this frequency of ad, along with the reach, can significantly affect the level of performance and user engagement.

Yet, again excess of everything is also bad. So, companies have to manage the frequency level also. However, which frequency level will be the highest is still a question that Facebook has analyzed in this study and answers all these questions.

This analysis examines nearly 2,439 campaigns to study the impact of the ad frequency and also the point at which its effect starts declining, reducing the engagement. It is important here to note that the quality of the product and creativity of the owner are the sole sources of making a difference. Yet, by considering the reach and calculated frequency, that is how many times an ad is visible to the consumer and how far one can maximize the engagement of the customers and marketing of the product.

Facebook notes that showing the advertisement multiple times can encourage the viewer to visit at least once or either can be a reminder for them. The higher frequency rate can psychologically impact the behavior of the potential consumers, provoking them to go to the site or purchase the product as a whole. However, there is an optimal frequency also, as mentioned above, which can negatively affect as everything marks a possible limit.

After graphically measuring the relation of impressions with a performance level, Facebook states that at a point which is not fixed but there comes a state where positive results start to decline, calling it a point of diminishing returns.

Facebook has utilized a Brand Lift Methodology to study these effects. This process includes the poles and several other measurement tools of the brands to explore and conduct this study. This methodology notes that after 5 to 6 impressions, the performance level starts to decline.

Furthermore, along with the calculated frequency, the uniqueness of the advertisement itself also holds a significant impact on the positive results. Facebook has also studied the user responses to the ad campaign to measure the results. It has shown that users have even responded positively to the ads that were good and creative on their own without having any number of ad frequencies. This insight of Facebook proves that the performance of the brand directly depends on the ad frequency and quality of the advertisement.
