Instagram Ads Objectives

The objectives you can currently choose from include:

  • Brand awareness, with the goal of showing your ad to users who would be interested in your brand
  • Reach, which seeks to show your ad to as many people as possible
  • Traffic, which prioritizes sending traffic to your site
  • Engagement, which seeks to increase engagement like comments, shares, likes, event responses, and offer claims
  • App Installs, where customers are encouraged to download your app
  • Video Views, which prioritizes more video views
  • Lead Generation, where users who click on your ad will be shown a lead gen form that is mobile-friendly and automatically filled out as much as possible
  • Messages, in which the goal is to get users to message your brand, generating conversation
  • Conversions, where the goal is to get conversions like purchases, email sign-ups, and registrations
  • Catalog Sales, which automatically displays ads showing items from your Facebook product catalog to interested customers
  • Store visits, which is only available to businesses with multiple locations and seeks to send customers to your brick-and-mortar store.

Choose the objective that aligns with the direct goal of your ads. If you have a video ad, for example, but want to drive conversions, choose the conversions objective instead of video views. Facebook will use your objective to determine which audience members to show your ad too, optimizing for users most likely to take the desired action.

  • Diet, like vegetarianism or veganism
