Paid Advertising

Advertising on Facebook is a great investment for any business. So many small business owners are not aware of the benefits social media advertising can provide, especially if you only have a small advertising budget to work with.

The ability to target certain user categories is one of the main reasons Facebook advertising is so effective. Facebook Ads run on the same pay-per-click/pay-per-impressions idea, however, due to the personal information within Facebook’s database, they allow you to get ridiculously detailed with your targeting. Anything a user can put into their profile—age, sex, location, education, religion, interests, politics, job title, marital status, etc.—can be used as a filter for your ads.
