For over 10 years, I have been working in the online world. When I first started out, there was no such thing as social media marketing. Over the past several years, this space has blown up in a way that we could have never predicted.
It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Facebook ads. In the past 8 years I’ve been in business, I’ve used them to extend my reach, super-size my email list and explode the UNSTOPPABLE brand, and now Freedom-Preneur Movement.
Whenever somebody new to the world of online business asks me how they can attract more customers and clients, invariably my answer includes running Facebook ads.
Facebook Ads Make a Huge Impact In Your Business
Promoting your business with social media is the “hottest thing since sliced bread”, and I don’t see any signs of it cooling down.
Don’t believe me? Just take a look at these statistics from around the web:
- 78% of people who use social media to sell perform better than their peers (Forbes).
- 64% of people who use inbound social selling achieve their targets (The Aberdeen Group).
- 90% of all buyers admit that by the time they come into contact with the seller directly, they’ve already decided that they’re going to buy via social media (Forrester).
The Bottom Line About Facebook Ads
With over 2.2 billion monthly active users, Facebook is almost certainly where your ideal clients are hanging out online. Facebook also recently rolled out a new Ad Preference feature. The great thing about this, is that Facebook is able to tailor ads to people even more.
If you’re not making any attempt to reach them using Facebook ads, you’re leaving good money on the table and clients who need you, in the dark.
Anyone who’s played with the Power Editor knows there’s a lot more that goes into setting up an effective Facebook ad campaign, besides writing copy that connects and uploading a picture that pops in the news feed.
Let’s face it: if your ad doesn’t reach enough of the right people, the leads that do convert will wind up costing you a whole lot more.
How to Get More Facebook Engagement on Your Posts
The more people see your posts, the better it is for the growth of your business. When people see what you have to say and engage with it, then Facebook will reward you and share your post with more people.
There are a few simple ways that you can get more people to see what your posts. I call this posting with purpose.
For example, if I am going to post a picture of something, I will write something that people can really engage with. I will share a story about the picture or talk about something that will inspire me. In closing, I’ll ask a question that will get people engaging in the comments.
Once people start commenting, you need to write a message back to them in the comments section, not the reply section. Instead, you will use the @ sign and their name in the comment section. This will give you more engagement on the post. Simply using the reply button will not do that.
Another thing that you can consider doing is replying with another picture. Sometimes, I’ll comment a picture of myself or something relevant to make it a bit more personal.
Promoting Posts and Ad Campaigns
Those few tips I gave you will help out with your natural and organic traffic on posts. However, if you want to really shoot your engagement through the roof, you can boost your posts. Also, you can create ad campaigns that will get your message in front of more people.
