Re: If You're Not On Facebook, You Should Be.


Im giving Facebook advertising a chance, but it isnt performing so well. Set up an ad which has received 230 clicks to my website, and just one tirekicker call. I'll let it go another week or so...

I do wonder why so many click on an ad with no follow through. I have a decent Footbridge website, so it's not some awful landing page these people are viewing.

I have a feeling Facebook is using bots or something to generate the clicks to ding you for the money because I have seen the same, hundreds of clicks with little to no leads

Interesting thought, though when I check my google analytics, the visitors are local. (mostly)

Good post, I need to work on my Facebook page more often if it helps with Google. Think I got about 60 fans so far, page is about a month old. Hopefully I can hit 500. Thanks again.

Re: If You're Not On Facebook, You Should Be.


We got very poor results from Facebook PPC for lead gen. And that was a tightly managed and tracked campaign.

I think that everyone thinks about Facebook for marketing a bit too directly, as a way to generate imediate leads. For instance, no one has mentioned that Facebook can host reviews for your company. That way, when folks Google your name, your Facebook profile shows up with positive reviews attached. When folks click in, they see your great photos from past jobs. Probably doesn't attract the initial interest, but really reinforces folks already thinking about the purchase.

Yea totally, besides the organic clients and referrals you can get the advertising platform has just become ripe enough for effective advertising and it is generating amazing results for many. I think facebook right now is as hot as Google adwords was in 2001.

As an FYI here are two pages of a five page piece from the WSJ. We're not on Facebook but considering it.
