Harness the unique and powerful targeting options of Facebook PPC Ads
Facebook is a $100 billion company because of what it knows about its users. Advertisers can tap into that knowledge base and hyper-target customers. Leads you get from Facebook can be extremely qualified and inexpensive if you know how to reach the right people.
Your time is valuable
Managing a Facebook ad campaign is a time consuming effort. Ads and targeting need to be refreshed and optimized on a daily basis to achieve the best results. If the same people see the same ad over and over again, you will not see the growth you desire. Our team of Facebook Ad professionals make sure that fresh, effective ads are always running so you can focus on your business.
Enterprise-class service for less
Since Maximize manages so many accounts, we are able to use enterprise class tools to run your ad campaign at prices your business can afford. Our software lets us quickly generate and test dozens of ads based on a variety of targeting and creative options. Once we find the ones that generate the most qualified leads at the best price, we monitor those on a daily basis and make adjustments as needed. Our analytics give us real-time data that we use to monitor success over the life of your campaign.
The proof is in the results
Check out the case studies below to see how a Maximize ad management solution can result in substantial cost savings.
Explanation of Facebook PPC Key Metrics:
- Click-Through Rate (CTR): The rate at which viewers click the ad. Facebook rewards ads with a high CTR with lower rates because more clicks equal more money.
- Cost per Click (CPC): The amount paid for each click. This is variable based on keyword competition and the CTR.
- Click to Like %: The percentage of people who click the ad who also like the destination page.
- Cost per Like: The ultimate measure of success. The cost of a targeted lead that opted-in to your Facebook Community.
When you consider that the average cost per click for all Facebook advertisers is around $1.00 (wsj.com) and the typical click to like % is less than 50% (Facebook), you can see that Maximize ad management led to tremendous savings for these clients. The insurance company above added 25,000 targeted fans in 5 months and saved over $40,000 by working with us.
While these results are not typical, our average client in January 2012 had a cost per like more than $1.50 less than the Facebook average. Those savings more than justify our small management fee that is flexible based on your advertising budget.
