Reaching Your Prospects In Plainview on Facebook

There are many approaches to reach an "Audience" on Facebook:

  • Focusing on individuals who have been to your website in the past (retargeting);
  • People that are fans of your page;
  • People that have similar passions (which include other pages on Facebook);
  • Prospects who meet demographic considerations;
  • Individuals that are already your customers;
  • and the list goes on...

With Facebook, we are able to focus on people - by gender, age, income, occupation, job title, area, passions and even more. These individuals end up part of an "audience" which may include many people. Facebook doesn't provide us with that list, however it will display our advertisements to individuals on that list that we have created.

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

Pluses and Minuses of Advertising on Social Media and Facebook

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

The primary advantage Facebook offers In Plainview is its capacity to reach prospects that are not actively looking for what you offer. This does not necessarily mean they will not have an interest. It simply means they aren't proactively conducting a search when they see your ad. However, they most likely were looking for something similar to what you provide quite recently.

The search engines like Google are restricted to people actually searching. A person may be in the market for legal counsel, but if they are not doing a search for one, those marketing in prospect pay per click do not reach that prospect.

Pro: Facebook is Great for Getting to Regional Market Places

  • Are you an attorney? Health care provider? Home repair business? A restaurant or store?
  • For any organization who does business regionally In Plainview Facebook is a superb method to appear in front of your audience.
  • We can concentrate on your prospects in numerous ways.
  • Only need to reach women 35-65 in a couple of zip codes? Not a problem!
  • Want to have a special on Mondays? We are able to do that.

The attractiveness of Facebook is the capacity to target. You can operate a very small advertising campaign that functions in very big ways, by merely targeting the right prospects, in the right geography, with the appropriate message.

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

social media concepts and facebook advertising

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

However, in our experience, clicks from Facebook vs. Google tend to be of a reduced quality. It isn't that there's a disadvantage in Facebook. Rather, the user is in some other mind-set.

Users from Google just did a search (for example "personal injury attorneys in XYZ"). It is apparent what they need, and they are searching since they have a genuine need. They tend to convert from web surfer to prospect at a greater rate, because they have a current need that they must fulfill (finding legal help).

In contrast, an ad on Facebook may capture someone's interest. They may or may not be actively looking for a lawyer, but still have the need.

For all of those reasons, Facebook targeted traffic tend to convert at a lower rate than search engine visitors... which is OK for the reasons you will discover next.

So is Social Media Advertising on Facebook a Great Deal?

Whether Facebook is really a "good deal" for your marketing spend genuinely depends on the numbers.

Suppose search engine mouse clicks are $11 and Facebook visitors are $1. Which one is better? It depends.

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

The point is... there is no "right answer." It will depend on your campaign, your offer, and the way the market responds to you. The "correct answer" would be to test, adjust, and test again.
