Scale a Successful Facebook Ads Campaign: Vertical Scaling vs. Horizontal Scaling

  • Post category:Blog

Imagine you just have a winning campaign. Now what? How do you scale its success?
There are 2 types of scaling: vertical scaling & horizontal scaling.

πŸ’‘ When you scale vertically, you increase your budget slowly and monitor for a proportionally improved ROI.

πŸ’‘ When you scale horizontally, you spread testing across multiple ad sets, audiences, types of creative.

On paper, vertical scaling sounds tempting, straight-forward and easy to implement. Let’s say, you have a campaign with a daily budget of $100, generating 10 conversions per day. The campaign performs so well that you decide to raise the budget to $500 overnight. You now logically expect 5 times more conversions (50) per day, right? πŸ˜„

Unfortunately, this is not how the system works πŸ˜‚. The more you increase your budget, the lower your ROI 😨. This is true for almost all marketing channels, not just Facebook Ads 😀.

To scale successfully and sustainably, you’d better off with horizontal scaling. Here are several methods
⚑ Scale a Lookalike Audience
