Here are the tips you can apply to the marketing strategy of your Facebook ad:

  1. You don’t have the access to the insights on the ads performance, but you can see if they tend to use the same ad copy or images and apply those strategies for your own page.
  2. Get an insight into how many paid ads they run versus how many organic posts. This will give you a sense of whether they focus more on organic marketing or paid marketing.
  3. Find out their purpose behind running specific ads. Are they running these ads for increasing brand awareness, for selling particular products, for running special offers, or is it a part of their retargeting campaign?

Now you know how to ‘spy’ on your competitors. It’s time to go get that bread!
