Tim, you shouldn't apply "set up and forget" approach for facebook ads.
Test different audiences, creatives, wordings, messages, rich media options etc.
There are so many things that could impact your traffic and sales.
I advise you to learn a bit about ecommerce marketing, attend Virtual Ecommerce Marketing Summit: https://get.promorepublic.com/ecommerce-summit-2018/ It's free and you could learn from 5 experts from Shopify, WooCommerce, WordPress, NinjaOutreach and PromoRepublic.
Hope it helps.
Advertising is a constant game of tweaking, testing and improving.
If you don't freshen them up, the vast majority of campaigns become stale and lose their effectiveness over time.
There are loads of tools out there that you can use to split test campaigns. When you become familiar with the process of optimizing your ads, paid traffic can light a fire under your business and you can achieve huge growth rates. But you have to be comfortable with the testing and iteration process. Not every campaign will be a winner.
