Is it cheaper to use social media instead of banner ads?

3 replies
I asked some forums for banner advertising and the prices ranged from 1000-2000USD a month. Which isn't a small amount.

I was wondering if it will be cheaper and equally effective for me to use social media advertising? I'm targeting the people who need movers.

    How are we supposed to know? You haven't told us anything about the site that offers banners at $1000 per month. How much traffic does the site get? What's the sites average CTR for banner ads? This is all stuff you have to ask the site/forum owner.

    For example, if the site gets 50,000 visitors per month and the average CTR is 1% you can expect to get about 500 visitors. Which means you pay about $2 per visitor. In this particular case you'd probably get better results with social media.

    Talk to the site owner, get info, and do some simple math. pretty easy...
