Facebook ads

The Facebook ad is not a bad idea, but the minimum number of days is 14. What if we don't want the ad to run more than one week, for example?

Re: Facebook ads

Hello @Faith-Behind-Bars-and-Beyond,


I can understand how having the ability to control the length of your ad would be beneficial when you want to run a short campaign. At this time there is no way to shorten the lifespan of a Facebook advertisement to less than 14 days. Your feedback on this feature is appreciated, though! I am happy to pass it along to our developers for review.


If you have any additional ideas that you feel might improve the Facebook Ad experience I encourage you to post them in our Feedback area.

Re: Facebook ads

Thank you for your reply, Nick.


As you know, Nick, the time limitation is imposed by Constant Contact, not Facebook.  Constant Contact imposes an additional fee when it helps facilitate Facebook ads, therefor it is Constant Contact's responsability to improve its product.  Otherwise Constant Contact adds no value.  We can simply use facebook directly for ads for any duration that we would like, from one day up to many weeks.

Re: Facebook ads

I agree that it would be beneficial to all involved to be able to run an ad for less than fourteen days. I'd prefer the option to have a shorter period with more concentrated ads. No need to reply, as I already know it will be sent up the ladder. I just hope more people chime in so the ladder has many people on it.
