    Is there a way to run Facebook ads on a schedule like daily from 2PM - 10PM, but on a daily budget? I know it's possible to do so with a lifetime budget, but I don't want to set a lifetime budget for ads I'm testing. I want to optimize my ads to only spend money when people are actually going to be interested in buying.

    I think this is possible through third party applications, but the ones I've found were very expensive to use.

    Does anyone have a cheap alternative or a workaround to using a lifetime budget?

    Yes, you can. If you have a lifetime budget, you can schedule your ad set to run on a specific day and time. When you schedule your ad set, your ad set must run for at least hour. I am not allowed to post link. You can also search with the keyword "Facebook Ads scheduling"

    Ads Manager
    1. Create a new ad set or edit an existing ad set.
    2. At the ad set level, scroll to the Budget & Schedule section.
    3. Next to Budget, click the dropdown menu and choose Lifetime Budgetfor your ad set.
    4. Next to Ad Scheduling, choose Run ads on a schedule.
    5. Choose the blocks of time you want your ad set to run.
    6. Click Save & Close

    Thanks, but I already know that you can schedule the ad to run at a specific time and how to do it. I was wondering if this was possible with a daily budget.

    I think I found a solution either way. I didn't know that you can set the amount of days you want the ad to run with a lifetime budget. I'll just make a lifetime budget ad for $50 for 10 days, so it spends $5 per day, and if it is working good, I'll increase budget or increase days on the ad.
