Reaching Your Patients On Long Island on Facebook

There are a variety of approaches to reach an "Audience" on Facebook:

  • Focusing on those who have been to your site in the past (retargeting);
  • People who are enthusiasts of your page;
  • Individuals that have very similar interests (which include other pages on Facebook);
  • People who meet demographic criteria;
  • People who are currently your patients;
  • and the list goes on...

With Facebook, we're able to focus on individuals - by gender, age, salary, occupation, job title, area, passions and more. These people end up part of an "audience" which may include any number of people. Facebook does not provide us with that list, but it will display our advertisements to people on that list that we have created.

We can pay for clicks, leads, ad impressions ... they will let you pay in many different ways. In the end, it is about buying exposure to and connecting with your patients.

Pros of Advertising on Social Media and Facebook

Pro: Facebook's Advantage Over Google: No Search Needed

The main benefit Facebook offers On Long Island is its capability to get to patients who are not actively looking for what you offer. This does not necessarily mean they won't have an interest. It simply means they are not proactively conducting a search when they view your ad. However, they most likely were seeking something such as what you provide very recently.

The search engines are limited to people actually searching. A person may be in the market for legal counsel, but if they aren't doing a search for one, those advertising in Google Adwords do not reach that patient.

Pro: Facebook is Great for Getting to Regional Market Places

  • Are you an attorney? Physician? Home renovation company? A restaurant or store?
  • For any organization who does business regionally On Long Island Facebook is a superb way to appear in front of your audience.
  • We can concentrate on your patients in many ways.
  • Only wish to reach women 35-65 in three zip codes? Not a problem!
  • Want to have a special offer on Mondays? We are able to do that.

The beauty of Facebook is the ability to target. You can run a very small advertising campaign that functions in huge ways, by just focusing on the right patients, in the right geo, with the appropriate message.

Facebook Pricing is Lower, but So are Conversion Rates...

social media concepts and facebook advertising

In general, Facebook advertising is less expensive than Google and the other search engines and reaches different people than SEO on Long Island. They cost less per click. If you are opting to pay per impression (paying for ads to be shown, rather than paying for clicks), that tends to come in less expensive as well.

However, in our experience, clicks from Facebook vs. Google are usually of a lower quality. It isn't that there's a downside to Facebook. Rather, the user is in a different state of mind.

Users from Google just did a search (such as "personal injury lawyers in XYZ"). It is obvious what they need, and they're searching since they have a real need. They tend to convert from web surfer to qualified prospect at a greater rate, simply because they have a current need that they need to fulfill (finding legal help).

In comparison, an ad on Facebook might capture a person's attention. They might or might not be actively hunting for a lawyer, but still have the need.

For these reasons, Facebook visitors tend to convert at a lower rate than Google visitors... which is OK for the reasons you will discover below.

So is Social Media Advertising on Facebook a Good Deal?

Whether Facebook is really a "good deal" for your marketing budget truly will depend on the numbers.

Suppose search engine clicks are $11 and Facebook actions are $1. Which of these is best? It depends.

  • If 5% of Google actions convert, that's $200+ for a new patient.
  • If 1% of Facebook visitors convert, that's $100 for a new patient - great!
  • But of only 0.2% of Facebook visitors convert, that's $500+ for a new patient - that hurts!

The point is... there is no "correct answer." It all depends on your marketing campaign, your offer, and how the market responds to you. The "correct answer" would be to test, modify, and test yet again.
