How does Facebook advertising work for business in Singapore?
Is it only about creating content for your Facebook Page? The answer is no. If you want to reach out to your target audience, you will need to use Paid Facebook Advertisements to achieve maximum reach for your Facebook content.
Millions of Likes, but low reach
You can have a Facebook Page with millions of Likes, but with only thousands of post engagement likes. Organic likes and growth can only work to a certain level with new Facebook systems of showing content. Paid advertisements and Boosted Posts will change that, and allow you to really reach your audiences.
The Power of Targeted Ads
Targeted ads on Facebook are a very effective and powerful tool, even for those with a small budget. With paid advertising, you can reach large but specific groups, according to metrics like location, age, gender,education level, interests, and even relationship status! You can design different ads to appeal to each category, maximising your reach. This degree of focus is amazing and helps you to reach your ideal customer better, and overall helps to drive sales and brand exposure.
You can also choose to show your ads only to certain devices, such as mobile or desktop. You can also target people with certain shopping behaviours, or by interests based on the Facebook Pages and interests they ‘Liked’ on Facebook.
Facebook paid advertisements also vary in type. You can use Pay-per-Click (PPC) or Cost per Impression (CPM) types of advertisements, both with their own set of pros and cons. You can even create Facebook Offers, with barcodes and coupons to encourage foot traffic to your physical store. You can combine all these functions and create a strong and effective Facebook marketing strategy.
