I'm Falling In Love With Facebook

I’m falling in love with Facebook, and here’s why:

Facebook Love

If you’re like most, you probably assume that social media is a marketing channel full of thirteen year old girls.

Yes, if you run untargeted social media ads, you’re certain to get low quality traffic,but you might be surprised that Facebook ads can be(and should be) one of your highest quality traffic sources!

Facebook is my favorite way to

  • encourage website visitors to return (via remarketing),
  • Analyze Our Target Demographics

The best part is, this all comes at costs similar to our other popular SEM channels.

For Franchisors, Success In Social Media Advertising Depends On Two Things

Here are 10 Randomly selected Facebook targeting settings

  4. Business Purchase History

When do people find FranchiseHelp? (Part 2)

However, as curiosity never rests around here, I decided to take it a step further and look at the same question over the course of a week and a month.

What are different ways to think about retargeting people who visit my franchise’s website but do not convert?
