If You Want To Encourage Visitors to Your Store/Event:

Whilst it is difficult to accurately measure the results of advertisements for offline promotions, as long as ads are targeted correctly, they can prove highly effective in their performance. The first type of ad is Facebook Events. These ads are great for attracting visitors and can be placed in the right column, on newsfeeds, and on mobiles.

 If You Want To Increase Traffic To Your Website:

Page Post Link ads (or Newsfeed Ads) are useful if you wish to promote your website, encourage users to visit a specific landing page, buy your product, or sign-up to a mailing list or newsletter. These ads are placed in newsfeeds, right column and mobiles. They are also excellent for creating Likes for the page.
