Facebook Dynamic Product Ads in DataFeedWatch

Posted on April 17, 2015 by Mateusz Miodek

Facebook Dynamic Product Ads available in DataFeedWatch

Facebook is growing rapidly as a shopping channel for merchants. Of course, DataFeedWatch enables users to create and optimize feeds for this channel. Here’s how:

Facebook Dynamic Product Ads allow user to:

  • Automatically generate Facebook Ads based on product feed and an ad template
  • Show specific product ads based on what users have viewed on your website

Ad types compatible with Dynamic Product Ads include:

  • Desktop News Feed Ads
  • Mobile News Feed Ads
  • Feature Phone Ads
  • Righ Column Ads

In the process of creating the ad you can add dynamic fields that will use the values from the feed. It could look something like this:

And the result would look something like this:

Launching dynamic product ads requires uploading a product feed and implementing Conversion-Tracking Pixel.

Creating Facebook Product Ads feed

The feed is very similar to Google Shopping feed. The main differences are:

  • categories are not required,
  • it has less optional fields (e.g. there are no custom labels),
  • unique identifiers like mpn or gtin are not required

    Hey guys. This is awesome (I hope) I’m a customer of your and was thinking why don’t these guys do this? I have just got mine running and this post lacks detail as to what data feed will take care of…eg currently I’m using a cpm buy through Facebook. Will data feed watch take over the account! Optimising like the Google shopping feed? Really keen to hear more.

  • Mateusz Miodek

    Hey Nick. DataFeedWatch will not take care of any setting or bidding management in your Facebook account. Our job is to provide a data feed in a proper format that Facebook would accept. That being said you can always purchase a feed set-up service which covers mapping the feed and uploading it to Facebook.

      Hey Mateusz, thanks for the quick response. When I go to add the Facebook feed. I note you do not have a drop down for Australia. I do see it available if I select US as a country. I currently running a dynamic campaign at the moment in Australia so know it’s available. I would like to keep all my feed data in the one place. Can you or someone please add the Australia Facebook ads drop down. Cheers, Nick

      • Mateusz Miodek

        Ok Nick, will do.

    I got the feed setup but couldn’t get the ad setup in Power Editor at the time. Let me see if that option is available for me now so I can test them out.
