Advertising on Forums

Is forum advertising much more lucrative than Facebook Marketing? And how would this differ in terms of budget as well as the results (ROI specifically)?

    Your question is too general.

    It depends on HOW you use it.

    As an example, are you referring to fb lead ads? Or for promoting a specific product?

    Assuming that you arr doing both for lead generation purpose, Forum might be more specific.

    Although with fb ads you may use a lookalike audience to find people SIMILAR to those you already have, so it can be sometimes more specific.

    In general an ads as an example in Warrior Forum can carry you more leads with less budget, but you have to take in consideration that you may collect a lot of freebie seekers, and you have to nurture them more, provide high and intriguin content cause the leads in forum are more veteran and experienced than fb ads people.

    You can also try WSO so you can either do lead generation, either try to return on your investment

    If u want to mix them, try to advertise here and put some fb pixel code in your opt in page or landing for wso, so you can after retarget them and build a very specific custom audience

    Connann said it; no form of marketing trumps others in that it is the clarity, skill and overall planning of the marketer which determines the effectiveness or success of the campaign.

    If you have the knowledge, Facebook marketing is more lucrative. However, that being said, why not diversify? There is a forum for practically any niche and I'm sure if you contribute to the threads and build your audience, you could get quality free traffic...hope this helps

    Your question is the same as asking - how long is a piece of string?
    You need to know what you want firstly.
    Facebook is a great tool for advertising, as is forums.
    Test both of them and consider using both to maximise the benefits.

    I would say your question is too general. You will need to be more specific to get a more solid answer.
