I have a facebook page that advertises my web hosting, I noticed a feature saying (Boost your Page for Reach even more people in United Kingdom) ( Boost Page ) Are these products worth paying for ?

I know another guy has another thread with facebook questions but I did not want to hijack it and get told off.

I've always been told no, that you can't sell web hosting via Facebook ads successfully, and I've always bought that at face value, but I don't really know because I haven't tried it. I'm also curious to hear from anyone who has used Facebook ads to advertise their site.

That what I thought, when I was a painter and decorator I was told it was no good. But to be honest I did not have to do that much advertising for that as word of mouth use to keep me going. You always knew if you dropped a few leaflets, you would get work from it.

To increase the reach of the post, Yes. Hosting business does not generate leads via FB, quite minimal.

We tried it and never had success. Perhaps we didn't let the ads run long enough or we didn't invest enough into it. We just haven't found alot of success in marketing mainstream like that. Niches is where it's at.

Just my two cents.

I would say Facebook paid ads are a good way to generate keyword popularity and make your product viral over the social networking platform. It helps to drive more traffic to make your website popular.

Facebook will do a great deal boosting your brand awareness levels and reputation. This top of mind situation is good for you in the long term. If however you are looking for an easy way to get clients then you will be frustrated with facebook

Am not going to waste my money on something that does not generate customers. I might throw 50 at it and see what happens.

We I do not think Facebook adverting will get you a lot of sales actually. I highly doubt but after that $50 report back with the findings. Am sure you will have had one or zero sign ups

It would be $74.96 as I said pounds, if you don't think that would touch the edges I will leave it alone. I am wary of what am doing, as I have spent money on advertising before and no sign ups.

Not really, even paid adverts for hosting rather than likes does not work well, it is just expensive !

Facebook advertisment is not effective for hosting firms in the short term. The only benefit is that your brand is regularly splashed in the face of facebook users with the hope that may be one day they will remember you LOL

We have tried FB ads in the past and we believe they are not effective. We tried very complicated methods of audience select and targeting. However, returns were almost zero. It was a XXXX $ amount of campaign and we were disappointed. Investing in Google Ads would be much better.

Hi,
From my perspective Facebook ads work but it depends on the business and what you want to achieve. In example if you are running and online shop with local base in one city you could set up a campaign that would be visable only for people near this place. By giving them a discount you could gain new clients.
Cheers,
Adam
