FACEBOOK ADS FAQS
Yes they absolutely work. But you have to make sure you have the right goal for your ads and that you are measuring the right things.
Facebook has some of the most highly targeted, lowest cost per click advertising available online today.
Facebook ads do work differently for different industries. Maybe you’ve heard that people get $1/lead or $0.07/click and those results are possible but maybe not in your niche. It takes testing, patience, and more testing.
It’s also important to note that if you have a low-cost product like an e-book or a $3 product, it’s very hard to have a positive ROI with Facebook ads. You can use ads to drive traffic and get more brand awareness but you may need to vary your strategy with other methods of organic reach on Facebook.
Facebook Ads and Google Ads are fairly different in the way they target people.
Google targets based on what people are typing in the search right that moment (as well as demographics).
Facebook ads are a little different.
The users present there are not looking for any product.
They are using that channel to socialize with people and relax. Whatever ads will be shown on this channel are going to be interrupting a user’s flow for sure.
All you have to do is to keep that interruption to a minimum. Try to integrate your product advertising on Facebook as seamlessly as you can. It should appear as a part of their news feed.
Facebook targets based on interests that people have in their profile (Pages people have liked, Interests they may have added, and demographics targeting based on 3rd party data).
With Google ads, you can target more around what people want immediately. Maybe they are searching for “best prices on tennis rackets” vs. Facebook ads where you are targeting that they are interested in Tennis.
