You know your company has to have a presence on social media. It’s 2018, after all, and consumers are getting more savvy, more technologically advanced, and more social with every day that passes. But you don’t want to be on social media just for the sake of checking a box – let’s get some conversions and meet important marketing goals while we’re there.

Advertising on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook can help you reach more and more people in a world where organic social media is becoming more focused on branding and less on acquiring new customers.

While all social advertising can be effective, Facebook leads the pack.

Paid Social Media Advertising

Advertising on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook can help you reach more and more people in a world where organic social media is becoming more focused on branding and less on acquiring new customers. We work with clients to ensure their business reaches the right people, at the right time, on social media platforms that matter.

Paid Social Guide

Social media advertising is a must for brands. Why is it so important? For starters, organic reach is down across most of the major networks. The days of simply posting on social and expecting all your followers to see everything are over.

Actually, that mindset has been gone for a few years. It’s all about how you target your audience, build customer journeys and get people to your site to make a purchase. Paid social media strategies help with exactly that.

But the real challenge is understanding the in’s and out’s of social media advertising, how to get started, what to spend and how each network operates. That’s a lot of stuff for even the most experienced brands on social media.

However, we’re here to provide insights into our top content revolving around social media advertising. Look no further, because this is your one-stop shop to better performing paid ads.

Why Putting Money Where Your Business is Matters

It seems obvious – but if you’re going to be using Facebook for your business, paid advertising is a must. Organic reach no longer exists, and the ad manager platform offers a powerful way to connect with an enormous audience and earn their business.

That all being said, the Facebook platform can be incredibly complicated. It can be very easy to throw money into a black hole and never see it again. That’s why thousands of online courses are dedicated to learning the ropes – from how to set up an ad to how to test what works creatively, to how to optimize for maximum conversions or lowest costs per acquisition. It can take many hours and plenty of trial and error to learn what works – only to have Facebook change or update the platform and force you to start again.

Paid Facebook Audience Capabilities

Facebook offers unprecedented access to a number of different audiences, which you can segment according to relevance to your business. Understanding how to properly create an audience can be overwhelming, especially with so many options at hand.

Facebook also allows businesses to upload their customer lists, retarget to recent website visitors, serve ads to those who have engaged with their business on Facebook and Instagram, and more. With so many dynamic ways to reach existing and new customers, the platform offers a uniquely powerful way to drive conversions, app installs, landing page views and more through regular audience touch-points.

Analyzing, understanding and developing audiences on Facebook is a key part of the paid process. Doing so correctly (or not) can also make or break your success, and it’s a huge point of focus for us.

Paid Facebook Testing and Metrics

Constant A/B testing, budget optimization, bid targeting and analytics deep dives are a regular part of our paid Facebook strategy. Learning what works and what doesn’t requires an enormous amount of patience, tweaking, and data-based decision-making.

We will assess factors including, but not limited to:

• Cost per result (per purchase, per landing page view, per       impression etc.)
• Amount spent versus number of conversions
• Ad reach and impressions
• Budget optimization
• Frequency
• Relevance score
• Click-through-rates
