There are many ways to use Facebook ads to your benefit, including offers, promotions, events, app installs, app usage, website conversion, website clicks, sponsored story and increase likes. Expanding your audience to your website can easily be achieved.
Website Clicks is likely the main type of Facebook ad you will use. You want to get people to click your ad, which in turn will either land them on your website page or your Facebook page.

You ad convinces your targeted audience to click it and find out what it is you have to offer. Your landing page convinces your targeted traffic to give you their email address in return for something, such as a newsletter, access to a special deal, etc. Facebook ads let you speed up this process significantly.
You can ad tracking code to both your Facebook ad and your landing page to see how your ad campaign is doing. You can also do this if your goal is to bring your targeted audience to your Facebook page and increase your likes.
The cost of your Facebook ads is in your control, which is one of the reasons for its popularity. You can set a CPC (Cost Per Click) in combination with a daily limit for your ad campaign so you are never spending more than you can afford to spend. For example, you might set your CPC at 50 cents and your daily budget at $10.
Be careful at your CPC maximum, it can go very high for some keywords. If you bid the necessary high you can spend a lot of money, if you bid too low your ads will never show, so it may be better to try another keyword.
It's time to get busy and put Facebook ads to work to help to grow your audience and ultimately your sales.
