Facebook ads

Facebook has over 1.86 active users (users that have logged in within the last 30 days). That’s a lot of people!

Facebook has various campaign types you can select the one that most accurately represents the goal of your Facebook ad.

Pros & Cons

 Let’s start with the pros. Facebook is great because it allows you to target your demographic very specifically based on interests, jobs, age, and geographic localizations. In the reporting, it also shows you how each of the former is reacting to your ad. The best part of Facebook ads is the cost. For only around $35 bucks a week you can get an estimated 10,000 impressions. A lot of our customers use facebook for “Brand Recognition” Simply because it puts your product and logo in front of a lot of eyes. On the con size is the reporting. Facebook doesn’t give the most detailed and easy to understand reporting, you have to actually take some time to learn and it definitely comes with a learning curve. Even after learning, the reports don’t give you all the information. Even though it gives you detailed demographic reports, they hide and make it difficult to find a lot of information.


Facebook ads are great. They give you bang for the buck, but the ads are not as targeted and direct as google.
