    Facebook Ads

    I was wondering if anyone has tried to advertise on Facebook? And i mean pay per click on Facebook. If so how do you like it and do you think its worth it? I've read about it and it really looks great because you can target who you want.

    Thanks,
    Cyle Hostedler

    You don't have to pay the full amount on FB PPC usually you can set the price. It is recommended that you start at half never less or you may get in trouble.

    You can also advertise to specific people, geography etc....when you are setting up your advertising you will be able to pinpoint your target market and set limits on how many PPC per day you will allow.

    Along with other advertising it can be very effective. How about your local directory on Google Maps, or a YouTube Channel, Blog and Website.

    I am using video marketing now and have been filling my funnel everyday. Soon I will be ruling my area in NH. Sorry guys!

    It is a fascinating topic. It seems that very few forum members have made the jump to internet marketing and search engine optimization.

    I do wonder if the age of a business comes into play with this. Do older businesses tend to go into internet marketing more or maybe newer ones.

    But it does seem most newer business owners tend to focus more on social marketing than internet marketing.

    Actually quite the contrary. You can laser target your audience geographically and demographically. You could actually target a person right down to a book they may have read or favorited. Maybe a Lawn Care Book??

    Also, as far as the PPC part of it you can put in a suggested PPC amount, you don't have to go with the full amount. Just a word of advise, go at about 50% of the suggest PPC amount, that way you won't get shut off.

    That is very interesting! Where did you hear about these figures from? I'd be interested in reading more about this.
    Just Google Pay Per Click Fraud and there is tons of News articles

    however 20 to 40% of the clicks are fraud then you are paying $6.00 to $12.00 a day for nothing.

    Can't you set a maximum you want to spend per day?
    Yes you can and let's say it's $30.00 however 20 to 40% of the clicks are fraud then you are paying $6.00 to $12.00 a day for nothing. That adds up in a real hurry.

    Thats an interesting article. I will add that I tried yahoo pay per click last year and I felt that click fraud happened to me as the funds expired way to quick, almost daily, so after 3 days of $30 deposits, I stopped them with yahoo. Google has not done that to me and perhaps it may happen, but so far it has not.

    If your going to do pay per click, use Google for it. They have it so you can narrow the area down to the zip code/city that you want to target. A much better value than other options out there.
    This is why I stay clear of pay per click

    If you are going to buy pay per click advertising on the internet, why limit it to facebook? Why not use google?

    Whats your thought on that?

    My cousin is using it for his flooring company. He says it's good.
    Does he only advertise through facebook? It would be fascinating to know what % of his new customers come from online ads like that.

    I was curioius about this so I filled out a campaign, $0.31 per click seems like a lot, I am not that keen pay per click based on a little research it stated less than 30% of those who click are actually looking for the product or service, they are simply curious.

    I will save the campaign for now and perhaps try it in May just to see what happens as we now have room for additional spray clients due to additional equipment. I see there are 131,000 people that my selection would apply to, over 35 and within 10 miles of Halifax.
