Facebook Advertising Has Got Better And Easier
“Marketers need to build digital relationships and reputation before closing a sale.”
– Chris Brogan
Facebook is no longer just a social platform. Business and advertising have long since surpassed the social aspect.
Facebook advertising allows a business to set its targeted audience, giving insights into the diversity of that audience. This targeting includes such things as cultures and regions. This possibility wasn’t achievable with traditional business marketing and platforms.
However, the high-competition to catch and convert targeted audiences into consumers have made it difficult for small businesses to stay in the game. Since the recent Facebook Algorithm changes, marketers find themselves struggling to make their brand appear in the Newsfeed of their potential customers.
“Facebook is arguably the world’s most powerful marketing platform. Within two years, it has helped me build and run numerous multimillion-dollar businesses from scratch. It has unique benefits that few other marketing or advertising platforms can offer: advanced targeting and user-friendly dashboards. Plus, you can start with a daily budget as low as $10-$20.” Forbes
Many people are reaping benefits from this platform – which means it’s surely not very difficult to use, after all.
