Reaching Your Prospects In West Bay Shore on Facebook

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

  • Concentrating on those who have visited your website previously (retargeting);
  • Individuals who are followers of your page;
  • People who may have similar passions (such as other pages on Facebook);
  • Prospects who meet demographic factors;
  • People who are currently your customers;
  • and the list goes on...

With Facebook, we will focus on individuals - by gender, age, salary, occupation, job title, area, passions and even more. These people become part of an "audience" which can consist of any number of individuals. Facebook does not give us that list, but it will display our ads to people on that list that we have created.

We can pay for clicks, sales opportunities, 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.

Pros of Advertising on Social Media

Pro: Facebook's Edge Over Google and Bing: No Search Necessary

The main advantage Facebook offers In West Bay Shore is its capacity to appear in front of prospects that are not actively trying to find what you offer. This does not mean they won't be interested. It just means they are not actively conducting a search when they view your advertisement. However, they probably were seeking something such as what you provide very recently.

The search engines like Google are limited to individuals actually searching. A prospect may be interested in legal counsel, but if they aren't performing a search for one, those marketing in pay-per-click do not appear in front of that prospect.

Pro: Facebook is Fantastic for Reaching Local Market Places

  • Are you an attorney? Doctor? Home services company? A restaurant or store?
  • For any organization who conducts business locally In West Bay Shore Facebook is an excellent method to reach your target audience.
  • We have the ability to target your prospects in numerous ways.
  • Only need to reach women 35-65 in a few zip codes? No worries!
  • Want to have a special offer on Thursdays? We are able to do that.

The beauty of Facebook is the capacity to target. You can operate a small advertising campaign that behaves in very big ways, simply by targeting the correct prospects, in the right geography, with the right message.

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

social media concepts and facebook advertising

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

However, in our experience, clicks from Facebook vs. Google are generally of a reduced quality. It isn't that there is a problem with Facebook. Rather, an individual is in a different frame of mind.

Users from Google just did a search (for example "personal injury lawyers in XYZ"). It is obvious what they need, and they're browsing since they have a true need. They have a tendency to convert from web surfer to qualified prospect at a higher rate, because they have a current need that they need to satisfy (finding legal help).

In contrast, an advertisement on Facebook might catch someone's interest. They may or may not be proactively hunting for a lawyer, but still have the need.

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

So is Social Media Advertising Worth It?

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

Suppose Google clicks are $14 and Facebook visitors are $1. Which of these is better? It depends.

  • If 5% of Google visitors convert, that's $200+ for a new customer.
  • If 1% of Facebook visitors 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 - ouch!

The point is... there is no "correct answer." It will depend on your marketing campaign, your offer, and the way the marketplace responds to you. The "right answer" is to test, modify, and test again.
