While Facebook has undergone numerous changes since its founding in 2004, it remains a useful tool for small businesses looking to expand their presence and revenue. Read on to learn more about why Facebook ads
work for small businesses.
- The Pew Research Center found that 65 percent of American adults used social media in 2015, up from 7 percent in 2005. A social media presence practically guarantees brand visibility.
- Facebook alone has 1.65 billion monthly active users, as of the first quarter of 2016. It remains a leader among social-media users, with strong potential for advertisers.
- Because of their placement, Facebook ads tend to be more appealing to users than more "obvious" ads. When an ad appears between a friend's vacation photos and a compelling news story, users are more likely to engage.
- Facebook ads allow for precise targeting of a desired demographic. Businesses can specify whether an ad appears to men or women, specific age groups, users who live in a particular location, or users with certain interests.
- When used as part of an overall marketing strategy, Facebook ads can help small businesses develop client relationships over time--for example, by encouraging users to opt-in to company emails.
- Going straight to the source yields numerous success stories involving small businesses that leveraged Facebook marketing.
