With just over a billion registered users and millions of visitors per day, Facebook offers fertile ground to promote your business. It has evolved from a simple social media site to a site where small, medium businesses and businesses promote their businesses, products and services. It is not surprising that governments in one way or another are present on Facebook. Although Facebook is an open platform to promote your business, it's important to understand what you need to do.
Facebook offers you a range of business tools, including the Ad Builder tool, which you can use to create an ad for your business. Using the Ad Builder tool is a great benefit. Facebook offers other users the opportunity to comment, share or like your ad. Each of these actions by a Facebook user enables their friends to participate, making your business accessible to many other users. To set up your Facebook ad, you need to specify your destination. This can be to attract Facebook users for your traditional corporate website, product promotion or sales.
Depending on your goal, an ad you create will appear in various places on Facebook, including the right-hand side of the Facebook page or the mobile newsfeed. A valuable feature of the Ad Builder tool is the fact that you can use it to reach a specific group of Facebook users. You literally have the ability to target a specific location where you want to promote your business to a specific audience, including age, gender, or interest. This option is very useful as it will allow you to reach a target audience that can serve you based on the size of your business.
Advertising your business on Facebook is not just about creating ads. You can also advertise your business via posts. If you publish content-rich posts on your Facebook page, you can engage other users who are able to attract more people to your business if they like or share your posts. In fact, Facebook offers you the "Boost Post" button, which you click to make your contribution available to a much wider audience.
A very useful feature on Facebook that you can use effectively for advertising or promoting your business is the Facebook offer feature. Facebook offers you the opportunity to announce special discounts or promotions by creating posts directly through the sharing tool. Other Facebook users access all offer postings created through the newsfeed using the "Get Quote" button, which allows users to claim your offer. Like anything else on Facebook, people can share your offer, which makes your business known to many other users.
A great thing about Facebook is that you have access to monitoring tools that you can use to measure the performance of your advertising efforts.
