Hi

Anybody has had experience with Facebook advertising?

Was it worth the money spent in terms of fan acquisition or perhaps the publicity?

Cheers
The Analyst

It was worth it in the past, because you only pay 1 cent per click even though it has poor traffic.

Since 2010, those spots have been conquered by many giant corporations & government agencies which drives cost per click to 30-40 cents. With such high cost per click and poor traffic, it's totally not worth it to advertise there.

I'd be damned!

40 cents for 1 click. Assuming a "fan" conversion rate of 10%, to get 1000 fans, I'd need 10,000 clicks costing $4000?

Hmmm... expensive. Guess I missed the boat

It's super expensive now.. but it is so hard to send out EDMs these days..
people just click on 'SPAM' and your domain name is blocked!
and most people don't really know what repercussions it has on the sender..

Why not do your own facebook marketing for a start? All you need is to create a business profile (not your own personal facebook profile) and start building friendships (potential customers).

Once the number of friends grow, that will be your potential sales target. What you need is to have a strategy from choosing the right friends to posting valuable updates.

Once your popularity rises, you will be able to generate sales from your friends in facebook. It is not easy and require hard work. But once you get it, you will reap the benefits from facebook marketing.

I had tried advertising in face book. Total i already spend 2.8kusd on advertisement. What i can say is using facebook as a advertisement is quite expensive. You have to set the per click to not more than 0.4usd . Just ignore the recommended amount set by facebook.

Hey myfashionpalace i have forgotten your name already. Remeber last time there is a few guys selling female clothing in scape flea market before they renoovate.

I feel that facebook advertising is amazing.
It cheaper than google adwords and it click jumping fast.
It you ensure that you can find your traffic there then go for it.
Mostly facebook target market would be teenager.
It selling fast impression .


Sometime facebook traffic is higher that google adwords.
It also is a good place for you to create impression.
Facebook able to help you customize down your customer with demographic and reach nearer to your target market.
