Facebook Ads Back-to-Basics Q&A — Custom Audiences Style

I recently did a Facebook ads class around custom audiences for Social Media Examiner’s Facebook Ads Summit, and on today’s episode, I’m answering the questions people asked during my session that I wasn’t able to answer due to time constraints.

I would consider these questions foundational, and I thought that all of you would benefit from hearing these “Back to Basic” questions, and the answers to them.

In this rapid-fire Q&A I’ll be talking about things like privacy concerns and your email list, audience size questions, general campaign set up questions and a whole lot more.
