SEO News | Facebook Marketing 101: Understanding The Pros And Cons

Facebook has turned out to be the biggest social network in the past few years of Web 2.0 domination. Not only has Facebook provided an effective meeting place for users to communicate socially, but it also provides an innovative means for Internet marketers to reach potential clients. So if you’re an online marketer and you haven’t yet started making use of Facebook’s medium to spread the word about your product, you’re missing a golden opportunity to mine a potential market of millions of prospective clients. It’s no secret that Facebook has become the most popular way to stay in touch with people you know or used to know, and folks will stay online for a long time just to talk to these people, play games, and join groups that the find interesting. Picture all of the people who use Facebook becoming aware of your business. More people would check out your site to see what you have to offer and your business would increase. This article explains how you can use Facebook to bring more attention to your product or service to gain a following.

One of the most important ways to reach your new customer base is to use the Social Ads service this is actually operated by Facebook. It’s simple to have a Social Ad based ad campaign, since it’s so easy to pick up on. Social Ads allows you to focus on target demographics, such as gender, age, location, interests, and more. The high level of customization offered to you affords you the opportunity to not waste time and money on annoyances like accidental clicks and window shoppers. What’s more, you’ll have a much better click through rate, and the people who visit your site will definitely be interested in your product. It is a good choice to ad something visually stimulating, like a picture, to go along with your ad. A picture can highlight your product in such a way that people will remember it, and this can inspire trust in potential customers. Even though the pictures may be more visually stimulating, you need excellent copy to go along with them to impress people. If the words don’t really say anything or increase interest there is really no point in having them. Therefore, it’s absolutely vital that you test your ad copy to see if it works.

You can also get a group or page of your own to begin marketing if you cannot afford the ads. You can have any type of interest group or page you want on Facebook; they are very open. You can then reach your targeted market for absolutley no cost. You can describe your business on a page or interest group that you develop. The next step is to entice Facebook users who would be interested in your business, to become a fan of your page, or join your group. You can do this with a direct invitation and then those who you invite can invite others. No one is going to the marketing for your page for you though, this will be solely up to you. Facebook can be very beneficial for your business no matter which route you may choose to go; creating your own group, page, or by putting targeted ads up.

There’s no doubt that Facebook will continue to morph into an even more influential networking tool over time. There is an ever growing user base that is intimately involved in the network. However, there is still a chance to get in on the competition before it becomes too difficult to make inroads on this useful platform.
