Is Facebook ad effective?

23 replies
Hi all,

I have never tried FB ads before but have heard many positive feedback about it. Would need a few suggestions here before I go into it.

I am currently in the "make money online" niche, and would like to try FB ads to build my lists and grow my brand. Just want to know if there's any tips for me to take full advantage of fb ads, to get targeted traffic. Or any suggestions on how to maximize fb ads to achieve the best results.

many thanks.

Cheers,
Alex

    Yes facebook is very effective, but you need to be careful when promoting MMO products because it is against facebook policy. You have to have promote it in another way. Like " get more traffic or listbuilding" Don't put "make money, in your ads because facebook will not approve them, and don't be frustrated if they ban your account, it happens all the time.

    And if you are going to capture leads, you have to make sure you have a Privacy policy on you landing page. If you don't have one you can make one for free, just searhc for " free privacy policy"

    Facebook is very strict on that

      This is the exact video I was about to post as well. Facebook ads are essentially like buying Facebook "likes." I have never had a Facebook ad convert well or had any of my colleagues be too impressed with them either. Take that money and spend it on Google ads instead.

    Hi
    To some extent I believe this works and attract customers. As I am talking on the bases of my own experience that it does work but you won't be able to get 100 percent new clients.

    Facebook ads can be very effective if you are advertising your Facebook page or group as the ads will be shown to people who have liked or visited similar pages on Facebook.

    I've never tried Facebook ads too because I don't think it will help my business. My facebook is talking about clothing but Facebook always shows me ads irrelevant, for instance, the insurance ads. You know actually I am not the target customers of these ads. So I worry about my ads will be also shown to people who are not interested in my products or services.

    I'm tired of loosing money on Facebook and other methods. Need a partner to do the marketing for me. I am the content guy, tough to also be the social marketing guy as well. Unrealistic. I've done a lot of work; Landing page, website, Facebook page, Facebook page Tabs, Aweber form, Facebook ads but no success yet. Don't really know what I'm doing even tho I've studied a lot. Problem is that most tutorials don't match the current Facebook interface or options.

    Anyone want to partner up? Fitness/weightloss niche.

    I've seen that video, but in my experience it's wildly inaccurate. I've built a number of pages up using paid likes from Facebook and I've got active pages that appear to be full of real users that are engaging with my content. Of course, all of the likes I'm buying are from the United States...Attempting to buy likes from a third world country may have much different results.

    I've personally done very well using Facebook as an advertising platform of late and have made a good amount of money selling T-shirts, affiliate products and even the occasional piece of jewelry on Facebook.

    The crazy thing is I started this as a way to make money on the side and supplement my Kindle book income. It's rapidly becoming far more profitable and takes a lot less work than writing books and may soon be making the switch to doing this full time.

    Facebook marketing can work. It won't work for everyone and you've got to attack the right markets, but it can and does make people who understand how to target their ads and optimize their landing pages a lot of money.

    Many says that Facebook Ads are effective. My concern now is with paid advertising, you can’t be sure that you’re dealing with those authentic fans (so many user accounts are fake). However, there are good ways to make it to FB ads:
    1. Create a brand- clear and eye-catchy message worth clicking and pondering upon.
    2. Keep a genuine move- let other people like your page/ brand because they wanted it.
    3. Evaluate- where did your efforts came across, do you need to develop it?

    Do not forget that true people counts more. so why not target true identities? They will count more anyway!
    Hope This help!

    Facebook ads are good. Recently they have also released their stats on how ads have generated a lot of revenue for them. You can consider google ads as well using AdWords.

    If your company are willing pay for ads in Facebook. Well, how about considering a PPC in Google. However, paid advertisement well be an additional operational cost to your company. There are lots of marketing strategy involving social media without spending your company funds. For Facebook, you can create a facebook page for your company that allows you to showcase your products and services. And its actually free.

    Here's the deal... If you're selling affiliate products and trying to build a list, I'd say 90% of the time you are wasting money!

    If you are using facebook to sell a service, a direct product or anything in between, then go for it!

    Facebook ads are the most effective when you know how to target the relevant people.

    Without this kind of targeting you will get no where.

    You can use custom audiences and lookalike audience features of FB which drive good amount of traffic.

    Later on, you will need an effective ad which can make people click that ad to signup.

    I have been working on FB ads for the past 15 months and all I can say is, Targeting is more important.

    PM me if you need any help.
