Facebook became a powerful advertising platform in recent years. Many small and big companies are growing tremendously using the advantages of facebook advertising. And also many companies are dying and losing money every day, because they don’t have a proper knowledge about how Facebook ads work.
There are many gurus online who will teach you how to create successful campaigns that will make thousands of revenue in just a few days. They had some success when the ecom craziness appeared near 2015 and seduced many young and old online entrepreneurs. Some of them are running great brands today, selling thousands of products everyday. And some of them decided to continue as online teachers and educators, as this is their best bang for their buck.
In recent years Facebook changed a lot. They are growing big that is for sure, but they are also taking care of their customers. There are many benefits of Facebook advertising but if you are not prepared to lose some money at the beginning for testing and learning, then you will not succeed.
So Is It Worth Advertising on Facebook?
Yes it is.
There are many advantages of using Facebook for marketing in your company. Proper strategy will help you to sell more of your products or services. It will also help you to get followers on different social media platforms, if you re-engage with them after you show them your ads.
We got asked almost everyday if facebook advertising is still effective. For sure it’s not so easy as back in 2015, where you can pop up whatever product on a feed and there will be many hungry buyers who will buy it. As the whole advertising game changed a lot in recent years because of many fake businesses and products, companies who want to market on Facebook today need to come up with a detailed strategy and creative plan.
As many online marketers in the past took advantage of their platform and started to promote bad quality China products with long shipping terms, buyers started to complain on Facebook about inappropriate videos, product quality and long shipping times. They also started to complain about the quantity of ads they saw everyday in their news feeds.
So Facebook started to ban accounts and companies who were not shipping fast, were using stolen or branded creatives, and in general were not selling under Facebook advertising terms. This term became very strict in 2020 and many companies are struggling with their advertising accounts to not being banned.
Sometimes just a little mistake in ad copy can get you out of Facebook advertising platform.
So the answer to all you who are still thinking if the Facebook ads are worth jumping on it in 2020, is – hell-yea. With the right mindset, plan of action and the right experts behind your back, you can grow your company exponentially in a very short period of time.
For sure you must be careful what and how you advertise, what creative you upload and how your website is made, but in general if you pay attention to Facebook advertising terms which sometimes can be little ‘unrealistic’, you’re on a good path and you can make some crazy scaling.
But of course there are also companies that don’t want to advertise on Facebook. The biggest reason why you or your company should not be on facebook is still privacy. Many people and businesses are afraid to show their faces, or to share private moments.
But as our technology and society evolves very fast, privacy is something we should take into consideration as good and bad at the same time.
If you’re hiding something or you’re not prepared for the consequences, for sure it can harm your life or business. But if you’re well educated and prepared, transparency about your life and business can bring so much more from the promotional point of view.
Let’s make an example: Business owner of a small company shares funny photos of his family while they took a road trip on the company’s Facebook page. Followers of his brand see them and engage with him personally.
You think his company would sell less or more during the engagement time on Facebook? Depends on the product but in 99% the answer will be yes. We’ve seen it so many times and we believe your business strategy in 2020 should include some kind of ‘human engagement’ on Facebook. With ads or without. Depends how much ‘more’ you want to sell.
With the help of Facebook algorithm learning machine, called Facebook pixel, you can sell a lot more after you leave this pixel to optimize and learn about your customers.
And you can put all your followers and engagers into small buckets, from where you can then remarket them with special ads. Depending on the journey they went with you, you can make so many combinations as no other advertising platform can. And that is really powerful.
