How to write Facebook BOFU ad copy feature image mylk copy

You’re on the home stretch now.

In Part 1, we examined how to write TOFU (top of the funnel) ads that convert. Following, in Part 2, we delved into MOFU (middle of the funnel) and the specific type of copy these ads need. Now, in this third and final part of this series, you’ll discover how to write BOFU Facebook ads.

The bottom line on BOFU ads.

As people get nurtured from TOFU down to MOFU, the final stage they reach is the bottom of the funnel, or BOFU, for short.

People who get targeted at this part of your funnel are well aware of your brand’s existence. They’ve seen your ads. They interacted with a click, like, comment or share. And they may even have taken an action like add to cart. But they haven’t signed up or purchased yet.

This is where the BOFU ‘stick’ pokes and prods those people on the fence to make the leap and land on your website — primed to make a buying decision.

Why you need BOFU ads in your funnel.

It has taken days or even weeks for someone to get to the bottom of your funnel and not convert. This usually means they are still unsure about something. They need a tad more convincing before they punch in their email address or hand over their payment details in exchange for the goods.

I like to call these people ’almost customers’. They’re almost at the point of sale. Because of this, BOFU ads carry the heaviest—and most crucial—load of the three funnels: making the sale.

So your call-to-action for BOFU must focus on things like an offer, discount, free trial, consultation, audit or a mixture of all of the above.

For instance, going back to my friend Paul and his skincare clinic. When he runs BOFU ads, he may choose to stack an offer something like this:

If you sign up today for a free 30-min skin consult (valued at $89) you’ll get:

  1. Clean Skin Health Assessment
  2. ‘Eat Your Way To Blemish-free Skin’ Guide
  3. 7-day Skin Detox Guide

Now, this might seem like a hard sell … and you’re absolutely right.

BOFU ads’ only purpose is to bring in the leads and sales. Which means you have to come out swinging for the fences with an irresistible offer.

The key takeaway.

When it comes to improving your Facebook ad performance, crafting well-researched, thought-out copy pays off in spades. That remains the same at every stage of the ad funnel.

The only thing that doesn’t remain the same is the language for each stage of the funnel. BOFU copy requires something very different from TOFU copy. A change has taken place — customer awareness has shifted to an even deeper level. This means they know your brand; they understand what you’re selling.

Now it’s a matter of striking with your hottest offer. So your copy must communicate that. If not, you’re leaving money on the table … and Zuckerberg is more than happy to eat it up.
