Hi everyone, I’m Faissal Alhaithami. I’m going to share why Facebook advertising killed Google Adwords! I’ll share the secrets in Facebook advertising necessary to generate massive traffic, and the endless opportunities that this system offers that Google Adwords doesn’t. However, this doesn’t mean that Google Adwords is useless or that using Facebook advertising will make you satisfied. As a mater of fact, you will still be in need of Google Adwords.
As you know there are Facebook fan pages that Facebook offer, and this pages are really like an opt-in pages. let me explain more, when you create an ad you have the option to send your visitors to your website, your capture page or you’ve a chance to set what we are called landing page, I will be explaining more about it, and as you know internet marketing and generating traffic is all about leads and relationship which Facebook is the best place for that.
Before I start, please keep in mind the “more” rule:
( more specific = more leads >> more leads = more traffic >> more traffic = more money )
One of the wonderful things about Facebook advertising is that you can be ultra specific. Users provide Facebook with an abundance of information about themselves. We’re talking about their favorite books, interests, religion, political views, favorite quotes and so on. All of this information is gold to a potential advertiser.
When setting up your advertisement campaign, you’ll be able to choose whom you want to see your advertisement by targeting specific demographic information. You can target by location, keywords, likes and interests, language, education, workplace, birth date, age, connections, friends, and relationship status.
For example, if you wanted to target all of the single women ages 25-30 in New york, it’s an easy task.
It’s important to be specific about your audience when creating an advertisement. It helps you produce specific copy. For example, you could create an ad for single women, one for married women ,and one for divorced women. This specificity helps you boost click through rates and maximize your budget.
With more than 550 million active users ranging from pre-teens to senior citizens, your audience is likely present on Facebook. Before you begin creating your advertisement, you decide specifically whom you’re going to target. You can always create more than one ad, so if you have a large audience, brainstorm on how you can use the Facebook demographic options to narrow your focus.
Facts : Research says people between the ages of 35-45 are more likely to click on your ads.
