FAQ’s

What is Facebook Advertising?

Facebook is one of the largest social media platforms in the world. This means that you could reach millions of people who you might not otherwise be able to.  Facebook advertising is when you post paid advertisements that will be displayed to potential customers, getting them to be enticed towards checking out your brand. Facebook now has advertising tools, allowing you to segment geographic, demographic, and technological filters. However, with all of these new tools, Facebook advertising has become harder & more complex. This is where our team of social media experts comes in!

What is the Difference Between Paid Social Media Advertising and Organic Social Media Advertising?

The most important difference between paid social media advertising and organic social advertising is whether or not you put any money behind the content and post or not. Paid social advertising helps push specific posts with a budget, allowing it to reach specific audiences. Using this method allows you to utilize segmentation to determine who these posts are shown to.  On the other hand, organic social media advertisements do not utilize a budget behind them, and their ads cannot be targeted. This method is used to interact with your existing audience and communicates with new people naturally.

What is Retargeting

Retargeting is also known as remarketing and is the concept of showing advertisements to potential customers who show an interest in your services or products. Usually most of your web traffic bounces away from your site without ever converting. Retargeting tries to get those people back to your site by displaying advertisements on their social media feeds in order to get them reengaged. This could include the products or services that they recently have viewed or similar ones that they may find more interesting.

How Much Should I Spend on Paid Social Media Advertising?

There is unfortunately no magic number that can say how effective your paid social media advertising will be. This will depend on the industry that you are in and how competitive the landscape can be. Another factor that can affect our social media advertising is the networks that you are using to advertise. Our team at Hometown Marketing Group can help you by evaluating your current needs and figure out what it will take to reach your goals. From there we can develop a strategic plan to help you get the results you want while spending your budget in the most efficient way.

Types of Social Media Strategies We Can Implement

Interactive Campaigns

Interactive campaigns include contests, quizzes, and chats. We can initiate a photo contest that calls on your target audience to share a creative picture of the products you sell. We could also run a video contest that highlights your services or products.

Quizzes are also a great way to build your engagements. We can set up quizzes that appeal to people in your specific target market. A strategy we can use is giving the quizzes a clickbait title in order to bring visitors to your website.

Social Media Management

There are two parts to proper social media management. The first is that we determine which social media platforms are best suited for your business. From there we will help you use a variety of social media sites to manage your business online.  It is important to note that not all social media sites are created equally. Some of them are more capable of doing business compared to others. Depending on your business, some platforms are better to use than others.

Once we have established which social media platform best suits your company, we will help you use it to boost your business’s online presence. We also will help set goals for your social media updates. We will help guide you to understand what content should be included and how you should post to your social media platforms.

After this we will go over the different types of analytics that can determine which content resonates with your audience and what we can do to improve your engagements. We will show you how your social media accounts generate leads and attract people to your website.

Social Media Advertising

Many social media platforms allow you to direct your advertising efforts to people based on their interests and their demographic. That means that you are able to get the best bang for your buck by showing your advertisements only to those in your target market. In some instances, you can optimize your ad to get maximum clicks and pay per click, other campaigns though can allow you to pay per impression.

Our team of social media experts will work directly with you to make sure that your social media advertising strategy will give you the best return on investment. We will ensure that your ads run on the proper social media channels and reach your specific target audience.
