Quote of the Day

-- Quote of the Day --


"I have accepted fear as a part of life — 

specifically the fear of change.... 

I have gone ahead 

despite the pounding in the heart that says:

 turn back."

Marketing Your Business with Facebook Advertising

* Sourced from

Marketing Your Business with Social Media Advertising

Your company needs more customers, so you are examining marketing options. Advertising on Facebook, and other social media out there, is one option that you do not want to overlook. Facebook advertising is extraordinary in offering the ability to select a particular target audience, monitor the effectiveness of your ads, and modify the ads to adjust to responses. To get maximum results from Facebook Advertising, it just takes a few key steps.

Two of the most common goals would be to generate sales directly from the ad or to increase awareness of your business while building a contact list for future marketing efforts. Everything about your ad should be constructed with your primary goal in mind.

Does your business only serve your local area?  Do you sell products that can easily be shipped anywhere in the world?  For either of these cases or anything in between, you can tailor the regions where your ads will appear to match your needs.

Because of the information Facebook collects about its users, you can define the advertisement’s target market based on age, gender, location, interests, or several other criteria. Combining those criteria allows you to be specific when you construct your ad for that target.

Upload a customer or contact email list. Any of the people on that list that are also Facebook members will receive your ad.

You can choose to run ads continuously or for a particular period, and you can select how much you are willing to pay. Budgets are set as a maximum daily expenditure or total expenditure over the duration of the campaign.

Images receive far more interest and generate higher response rates than text-only ads. Consider creating multiple ads with different images to examine their relative effectiveness.

Ad Manager accumulates metrics on responses to your ads and presents them in comparison to goals established when the campaign was initiated. Using the information available, you can alter the campaign, changing the budget or target market or even completely re-creating the ad. A big plus – Facebook Ad Manager is available as a smartphone app.

With Conversion Tracking, you place JavaScript code on your website that tracks visitors’ actions. That JavaScript sends info to Facebook, where it is compared with their record of prospects that looked at or clicked on your ad. Among other things, you can determine how many people viewed your website or made a purchase after seeing your Facebook ad.

Boosting a post is a different type of advertising. Boosting a post causes it to appear higher in the News Feed of the ad recipients, thus raising the likelihood that it will be seen. You can have any post boosted, increasing its exposure.

Salespeople know the axiom “Always ask for the sale.”  Professional salespeople do not present information to prospects and hope they will choose to buy. They offer the information and ask the prospect to act – to make the purchase. You need to do that in every ad you create. Depending upon your desired response, include buttons or links asking the reader to respond. “Click Here to Buy,” “Like This Page,” or “Click Here to Receive My Newsletter” for example.
