Before I spill all I know about how to pay for Facebook ads in Naira, you need to understand why you should it.
Of course, the obvious answer to the question is card rejection, right?
But, pause for a minute to ask yourself the reason for running Facebook ads in the first place.
Well, obviously, it’s to grow your business/brand, make profits with less expenditure.
You’ll agree with me that it cannot happen if you use a dollars account in Nigeria.
Let’s face it:
Needless to say, recently, Naira has declined in value and the dollar seems to be on the high side.
Running Facebook ads in dollars will only result in spending more to get the same result as you would if you use Naira.
I believe you want to have massive returns on investment for every Ad spent, right?
What’s more, these strategies will also help you pay for Instagram Ads in Nigeria too.

How Much Do Facebook Ads Cost In Nigeria?
Facebook ads cost anywhere from 500 naira to whatever you can budget. There’s no fixed price for running profitable Facebook campaigns in Nigeria.
Having said that, a good rule of thumb is to get efficient results. That cannot happen with a 500 naira Facebook ad campaign.
That brings us to the following question:
How Much Should I Budget For Facebook Ads?
It’s better to shoot for a 4,000 naira budget if you want to get massive returns on investment. That way, you have enough time and money to AB test the conversion rate of the Ad and better optimize it for greater returns.
AB testing allows creators to split test the conversion rate of the Ad. The conversion rate on the other hand is how well your Ad performs.
What do I mean?
In other to guarantee mind-blowing results on your Ads, you need to test with different creatives (Ad Formats) to see the best performing one.
For example, you’re running Facebook Ad to get more music streams on Spotify. You’ll have to use different Ad formats and designs to see the one with the best engagement and reach with less expenditure.
Then you can turn off the other ones and keep the best one.
More so, this will also save you money and bump up your return on investments.
