Set goals with Kit

Kit can help you set goals tailored to your business, and then work with you to reach those goals. If you're just starting out, then Kit can encourage you to get more likes on your Facebook page or make more sales. If you're an established business, Kit can help by setting goals for you to grow every month.

Kit is proactive, and will suggest goals that are tailored to your business. Kit will keep you accountable and help you celebrate when you reach your goals.

Note

Goals are currently only available to US stores, but will eventually be implemented worldwide.

You can use Kit without setting any goals, and you can still run other ads while you're working towards a goal. If you run other ads while you're working on a goal, then those ads will have separate budgets and won't count toward the amount you have budgeted for your goal.

Kit will choose one of the following goals for your business:

  • Get 100 likes on your Facebook page
  • Make your first sale
  • Make your 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, or 100th sale
  • Achieve 10% month-over-month growth

Requirements

Before you can set goals with Kit, you need to accept all the terms of service for Facebook advertising. Visit Kit's checklist to accept the terms. Your Facebook Ad account must also be in good standing, and you must have a live store with at least one product that uses USD as its currency. If you've met all these conditions but still can't set goals, contact Kit support for help.
