Have you ever had a successful ad campaign on Facebook and wanted to duplicate those ad sets to reach a new audience? Well, you’re in luck! In this article, I will walk you through the step-by-step process of duplicating ad sets on Facebook, based on my own personal experience.

Step 1: Accessing the Facebook Ads Manager

To begin, log in to your Facebook account and navigate to the Ads Manager. Once you’re there, click on the “Campaigns” tab to view all of your active campaigns.

Step 2: Selecting the Ad Set to Duplicate

Next, choose the specific ad set that you want to duplicate. Click on the ad set’s name to open the settings and performance data for that particular set.

Step 3: Duplicating the Ad Set

Now, let’s dive into the process of duplicating the ad set. In the ad set settings page, scroll down until you find the “Actions” dropdown menu. Click on it and select “Duplicate”.

A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to customize the duplicated ad set. Here, you can make any necessary adjustments, such as renaming the ad set and selecting a different target audience.

Step 4: Reviewing and Launching the Duplicated Ad Set

After customizing the duplicated ad set, take a moment to review all the settings to ensure everything is in order. Pay special attention to targeting criteria, budget, and schedule. Once you’re satisfied, click on the “Review and Launch” button.

Facebook will now create a duplicate ad set based on the settings you have specified. You can monitor the progress of the duplication process in the Notifications center of the Ads Manager.

Step 5: Analyzing Performance and Making Adjustments

Once the duplicated ad set is active, keep a close eye on its performance. Monitor key metrics such as reach, engagement, and conversions. If needed, make adjustments to the ad set settings, targeting, or budget to optimize its performance.


Duplicating ad sets on Facebook can save you valuable time and effort when you want to target multiple audiences or test different strategies. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily create duplicated ad sets that are tailored to your specific needs. Remember to review and optimize your duplicated ad sets to maximize their effectiveness in reaching your marketing goals.
