When a person creates a Facebook account, they enter their age, gender, city, country and sometimes address, likes, dislikes and a myriad of other variables. As they use the service, Facebook collects more information on their likes and dislikes as well as who they’re friends with. With Facebook marketing or advertising, you can specifically target the audience you want, which can be very powerful for your business. Using the Home Business Niche as an example, you can narrow down your target market further by opting to show your ads to perhaps stay at home moms who fall in the 30-50 years of age category living in the southwest United States. You can then create an advertisement that’s specifically targeted to a particular demographic and guide the audience to an offer that perfectly suits them. Facebook marketing truly eliminates the uncertainties of advertising that are common in other platforms.
Information Within Minutes
If you have ever tried offline advertising like using business cards, brochures and pamphlets in your local area, you certainly know how time-consuming the venture can be. This form of advertising takes long before you get any response or significant results from your efforts. Other offline forms of advertising like Billboards and TV ads are not only expensive, but it takes a long time before you can judge the effectiveness of the campaign. Well, things are far different when it comes to Facebook marketing. You can set a campaign and witness traffic going to your website within hours, if not minutes.
Budget as Necessary
Facebook advertising is pretty cheap compared to other forms of marketing. If you own a small business, you can start with about $40, evaluate the results and decide from there. It’s all up you to decide how much you’re going to invest in this avenue. If you don’t get the results you are looking for, you haven’t wasted a lot of money and you can make adjustments and keep experimenting. Sometimes, the adjustments can be as simple as using the wrong terms on your ads or targeting the wrong audience. Whatever you decide, you can always do it again on a small budget until you see substantial results.
Do not be left behind; we are in a digital age where everyone owns a computer, a smartphone or a tablet. A huge percent of people who own these devices are active users on Facebook, and that makes them easily reachable. The pros mentioned above are just some of many advantages Facebook marketing has to offer. In our next post, we’ll explore some basic best practices for marketing on Facebook.
