Reaching Your Prospects In Rockland County on Facebook

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

  • Focusing on those who have been to your web site previously (retargeting);
  • Potential customers who are followers of your page;
  • Prospects who have very similar pursuits (which include other pages on Facebook);
  • People who meet demographic considerations;
  • People who are currently your customers;
  • and the list goes on...

With Facebook, we can easily aim for people - by gender, age, income, profession, job title, location, interests and more. These people end up part of an "audience" which can include many individuals. Facebook does not provide us with that list, but it will present our ads to people on that list that we have created.

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

Pluses and Minuses of Advertising on Facebook

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

The main advantage Facebook offers In Rockland County is its capability to reach prospects who are not actively searching for what you offer. This doesn't mean they won't be interested. It just means they aren't proactively performing a search when they view your advertisement. However, they most likely were looking for something like what you provide very recently.

The search engines are restricted to individuals actually searching. A person may be considering legal counsel, but if they aren't performing a search for one, those advertising and marketing in pay-per-click do not reach that prospect.

Pro: Facebook is Fantastic for Reaching Out to Local Market Places

  • Are you a lawyer? Doctor? Home repair company? A restaurant or store?
  • For any organization who does business locally In Rockland County Facebook is a great way to reach your target audience.
  • We have the ability to concentrate on your prospects in many ways.
  • Only need to reach women 35-65 in a few zip codes? No problem!
  • Want to have a special offer on Wednesday? We are able to do that.

The appeal of Facebook is the ability to target. You can operate a very small marketing campaign that behaves in huge ways, by simply targeting the correct prospects, in the right market, with the appropriate message.

Facebook Costs are Lower, but So are Conversion Rates...

social media concepts and facebook advertising

In general, Facebook advertising is less expensive than Google and the other engines and reaches a different group of people than SEO on Long Island. They cost significantly less for each click. If you are choosing to pay per impression (spending money on advertisements to be shown, instead of paying for clicks), that tends to cost less as well.

However, in our experience, clicks from Facebook vs. Google are usually of a lower quality. It is not that there's a challenge with Facebook. Rather, the user is in a different mind-set.

Users from Google just performed a search (such as "personal injury attorneys in XYZ"). It is clear what they want, and they are searching because they have a true need. They tend to convert from web surfer to prospect at a greater rate, simply because they have a need that they must satisfy (finding legal help).

In contrast, an ad on Facebook might catch a person's interest. They may or may not be actively shopping for an attorney, but still have the need.

For these reasons, Facebook visitors 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 a Good Deal?

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

Suppose Bing clicks are $10 and Facebook visitors are $1. Which is best? 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 actions convert, that's $500+ for a new customer - that hurts!

The point is... there isn't any "correct answer." It will depend on your marketing campaign, your offer, and the way the market responds to you. The "right answer" would be to test, modify, and test all over again.
