Dynamic Product Ads take your e-commerce efforts to the next level
Automatically promote and retarget the most relevant items from your product catalog to the most interested audience
Bottom of funnel marketing
If you’re using Shopify, or any mainstream e-commerce platform, simply upload your product catalog and set up your campaign one time, and it will continue working for you for as long as you want—finding the right people for each product, and always using up-to-date pricing and availability. You can always do this manually as well, Facebook provides the CVS file template. Dynamic ads work well if you target customers who have browsed through your catalog but have not yet purchased an item. The pixel will track which pages of your website your customer visited (i.e. product catalog or checkout) and, based on its findings, will serve a relevant ad to that customer. For example, if your customer browsed through your collection of leather jackets, your ad will advertise that same product. Dynamic ads are great tools that push interested customers to make a purchase.

How to import your product catalog and create your DPA Ad campaign
Open your Facebook business manager, and select create a new product catalog. You’ll be instructed to name this catalog which is a good idea in case you want to segment certain products you can’t sell on Facebook.
There are two ways to import your product feed into Facebook. You can either point to a dynamically generated feed file or you can upload a .csv file with your product data using your e-commerce platform. Shopify and other e-commerce Facebook partners have a very easy way to do this.
Set up your custom audience pixel. If you’re using Shopify, you can do this seamlessly when you sync your store and when you add your Facebook pixel in the settings. If you’re using Woocommerce, you can download the Pixelmysite plugin, and you should be able to create the main events to segment your audiences.
The custom audience pixel is what lets you gather information about visitors to your website—and this is where the magic happens. If you need help here, or if you’re not the technical guy on your team, email this link to your developer.
Click “Create Campaign” and select “Promote a Product Catalog” as your objective.
Try to name your campaign something easy to remember, especially if you’re running more than one. Name it, “DPA – Leather Jackets” to retarget people who have viewed your product page or “DPA – Add to cart” to retarget people who added the product to their cart but not purchased. If you have already had purchases, we recommend you exclude the “purchased” audience so you don’t bombard them with the same ads. You can always run an upsell/cross-sell camapign to them in the future. Create your product set if you haven’t already to use the right products for the campaign.
Now that you’ve properly filtered your product set using your parameters (brand, category, avaliability, etc) you’ll want to select the audience you’re going to target. Keep your ad copy in mind and be creative when choosing your custom pixel audience. This is the beauty of these kind of ads, you can get really personal and creative.
Now that your ad set has been properly optimized for Dynamic Product Ads, it’s time to create your ad. Go to the “Ads” tab and either create a new ad. Note: The ad copy will be the same for everyone no matter what products they see.
You can can also test different keywords with product tags, but it’s safer to stick with dynamic product names, descriptions, and pricing when you first start out. Double check your pixel, and start getting personal with dynamic product ads.
Uproot’s DPA ad tips
Create the right product sets
Create product sets from your catalog. Divide them into pricing ranges, male/female, and other parameters. This will help you you develop a better ad creative.
Exclude recent purchases
Exclude people who have made a recent purchase from your campaigns so that you can focus on acquiring new customers. You can always retarget them with a Up sell/Cross sell campaign.
Consider time in your audience segments
You may want to segment your audience by the time and optimize your message to them by urgency, follow up, and more.
