I feel Facebook is a good only for Brand Building and nothing more than that. I did not get any sales, at least I assume that, but there was a lot of traffic from Facebook even after I stopped the campaign. It is been a few months since I stopped the target campaign but I still get the hits.

Ur supposed to hire Facebook to sell but all I hear from it dont make sense to that just fancy number on ur page they call likes that without them Facebook search engine would ignore your company great big deal,honestly I think the people behind Facebook are great dealers and maybe the Facebook numbers are the image of the seal of the beast,well at least everyone is saying please like my facebook page that I even think thateven doctors,politician are behind them,I think Im gonna cry when I see a priest or a government agency asking for likes,I guess the world is becoming wicked with those likes,are they really needed? <snipped>

Not really a good idea to blindly invest into campaigns. You need to have the proper tracking systems in place so you can see exactly how much return you're making on your marketing efforts.

Through trial and error you will find what works for your company but if you're paying and not properly tracking, you will never know.

Advertising on social media is useless to me, especially Facebook.
Here's some insight on facebook advertising: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVfHeWTKjag

And sponsored tweets have such a short "lifespan" that I don't think it's worth paying for. Up to you of course. Just my 2ct

The guy of the video says its unworth to advertise on facebook,really I havent tested it for its expensive rates,he might be refering to page advertise and the buy likes,however I agree to the fact that Facebook dont know how to benefit from their audience but forcing them to advertise and bid since is the highest bidder's add you see on the end being or not of ur interest,nice video ha and also very atractive guy

We have used Facebook for advertising in the past, and although we did get a lot of clicks, very few of those turned into actual customers. I think for it to be successful you need to target the ads to a specific user group and the offer has to be extremely enticing. I think people tend not to be in "shopping mode" when using Facebook so you might just as well spend the money on Adwords. At least with Adwords we see consistent conversions, altough, it could get expensive for low-priced hosting.

We use Facebook/Twitter mainly to engage with existing customers and for SEO.

Could you guarantee that thousands of dollars invested on facebook if had been invested on Adwords could have been turned on to actual CLIENTS?

That depends on multiple factors, not just the ad.

You can sink thousands of $$ into an ad, but if:

1) The ad copy is of poor quality, they won't click
2) they click, but the page they land on is of poor quality, they leave
3) they don't leave, but the checkout is confusing, they leave
4) they don't leave, but need more info and there's no clear way of contacting you, they leave..
5) they found a way to contact you, but your sales person is confusing them, they won't buy

It's not a matter of throwing money at facebook, Google or whatever ad company you have in mind, it's a matter of creating quality campaigns.

Im not part of Facebook's team and really Mark Zuckerberg phillosophy I think is <snipped> since
is nothing new but factors the www already has,honestly I think he is a lucky child that did
partner with the right people at the right time and that all his good luck is nothing but good
marketing,its all pure psychology,facebook are masters of advertising and if you want to hit it
hard you will remember me,you just need to advertise and that is that.
First it was metacrawler and Yahoo ,then it took some knowledge to match and better yahoo
but still google is an advertising leader,and so Facebook is the same,tomorrow it will be gone
and there will be some other more talented taking their place.


Time after time,are you ready?

You can either promote your website for free or through paid ad campaigns on Facebook.

Running an exclusive promotion is a good idea to start with!

Share good content, be open, keep in touch with your fans and you won't need to buy anything. Facebook is an alternative to traditional means of advertising at it offers so much more - communication, trust building, etc.
