How likely Facebook thinks someone will ‘take a nibble’ on your ad; and
The quality of the ad.
Test and Measure
Your Facebook advertising works exactly the same way as fishing – throw out a line and try different types of bait.
Be prepared to switch your ad up regularly to find that sweet spot where you’re getting good results, without spending a fortune.
The advertising gurus call that ‘test and measure’.
Stuff you can do for free
There’s no point having a brilliant ad that drives people to your Facebook page or web site and they find nothing of interest.
Commit to a regular update schedule for your page and your web site. Facebook lets you schedule multiple posts in one go, so you don’t have to sit in front of that bloody screen all the time. Clever web sites will also let you schedule blog posts.
It costs nothing except a little bit of time and something interesting to say.
And now you’ve used Facebook’s tools to find out more about your target audience, start finding community groups they’re likely to be interested in – buy, swap sell pages, community pages, mothers groups, car groups – and more.
People are always looking for recommendations and new businesses. Be ready to engage when they do.
But, be warned. You can get banned for direct promotion posts on many groups. If you decide to play in that sand pit, make sure you’re there to add value to the conversation – sell your expertise, not your wares – unless you’re invited.
Make no mistake with Facebook advertising, doing it right can pay off.
But don’t expect to be one of those overnight “success stories” you see digital marketing firms pitch with the inspirational story and million-dollar revenue.
Give it some thought. Find a way this platform can add value to your business then run with it.
