One of the means, you can use for Facebook advertising is to use the sites ‘social ads’ service they offer. This is the easiest and the most straightforward way to advertise with Facebook. The best part about social ads is that you can customize your ads to target any set of people by their age group, gender, interest, etc. Your ads then become incredibly specifically targeted to your niche audience, leaving out the people who aren’t interested in doing business with you, increasing your click through rate. And a high click-through-rate (CTR) will mean more visitors and more sales, giving you an increased yield for your advertising dollars. Also, you have the freedom to add a picture to your ad, which is highly recommended, as it can get you a better CTR. How?

There’s no cheaper way to get to your target audience. All you need to do is create a group or if you want a page talking about your business. The next step is to entice Facebook users who would be interested in your business, to become a fan of your page, or join your group. Your customer number goes up as other people invite people to join the group, or you can send out invites yourself. No one is going to the marketing for your page for you, though; this will be solely up to you. Whether you create a group or a page, with the right strategies and sometimes, your business will begin to get some response with the help of Facebook.
