Hey there. Welcome to Hopps help where we try to answer commonly asked questions in two minutes. The question for today is how do I find a Facebook post ID of a Facebook ad?
Great question. So, I'm going to start off on the campaign level. As you can see here. I'm right here. I'm going to click on edit and then we'll go ahead and actually go to the ad level.
So, I didn't take any of your ads that you want to do, or when you create one, make sure you're on the ad setup.
You have three different options. You have created an ad you have to use an existing post and you have used a creative hub. Mock-up for this question, I want to go ahead and use, use existing posts as we were going to use a post ID for this.
As you can see here, now I have to select a post on the go ahead and go to select posts, Facebook and Instagram, make it super easy for you to grab your posts on both channels right here up top.
You see Facebook, Instagram, and even branded content. So, for this example, I'm doing Facebook, as you see here of all the posts and each post has its post ID and what kind of type they are.
So I'm gonna go ahead and just, for example, copy this one right here. Copy to clipboard. Continue. I'm gonna use this rice right now is here.
Okay. So now the answer to this other part of the question is, okay. Now let's say that I have this ad already done.
It's all good set up, but I want to use the same ad, or is the same post on another ad set.
Right? So, I'm gonna go ahead and move this ad to this ad. Number two right here. Okay. So, I'm going to go ahead and hop on his ad number to do the same thing.
I'm not going to use, create an ad. I'm going to use the existing post again, and as you can see here; I'm not going to select the post.
I'm going to enter the post ID right here. I'm going to paste it from what I copied earlier and submit it.
And as you can see here, it'll pop up the same as a post. Now, the benefit to doing this when you do all these ads, is that when you do the post ID, what helps is that it'll copy all the engagement, all the data pretty much from that ad that you had entered the post ID from, to this camp or to this new adhere.
So, all that travels over, as opposed to me doing it, where if I were to do a create ad it starting from scratch, basically, right?
So, if I'm sending out all these ads and they all have this post ID right here, any of the ads that the audience is going to see, we'll have the engagement, we'll have the likes, we'll have the comments from existing or previous times I ran it in front of their faces.
So now they see the credibility or social proof of, okay, people are using with this comment or with this post.
So, it must be somewhat legit, you know, just an extra social proof in there for you, right. To kind of validate.
So, it's important to do this. Now, if you don't have the option to do it, create creating, and as always great or using a post from your Facebook.
