Inbound Marketing vs Cold Calling

by Tony Sorensen @ Parqa

In order to sell effectively, salespeople need someone to sell to, and while cold calling used to be one of the most effective ways to attract prospects, it’s no longer true in the digital age. Today, cold calls are no longer the hot ticket to sales. More and more sales professionals and recruiters are looking towards inbound marketing methods to find ways to improve their sales process and are finding great success. According to HubSpot, a leading inbound marketing and sales software, 54 percent more leads are created through inbound marketing versus outbound methods for a cost of 62 percent less per lead. The reality is that brands can generate more leads spend less, enjoy better returns and attract more qualified leads by using inbound marketing. This isn’t to say that cold calling is completely dead, as the best approach is a hybrid of traditional and inbound marketing methods. Both inbound and outbound marketing can complement one another to help your company and your sales team reach its full potential by connecting with the most prospects possible. In this blog, we look into the differences between inbound and marketing and cold calling (outbound marketing) and breakdown the stages of the inbound marketing buyer’s journey as it relates to the sales funnel. The Difference Between Outbound and Inbound Marketing We’re all familiar with cold calls, the classic method of pitching, promoting and pushing prospects through the sales funnel. However, with so much information at their fingertips, today’s customers are more cautious than ever and want more time, insight and information before they’re comfortable making a purchase. Consumers now have more control over their purchase decisions with the rise of the Internet. Oftentimes, a salesperson trying to talk them into buying something can be off-putting or feel too aggressive. People now turn to the web to research products, read reviews, ask questions and arrive at their own purchase decisions. With the right inbound marketing tools, tactics and methodologies, you can provide them with the information they need and help guide them through the sales funnel until they’re ready to purchase. Inbound Marketing Makes All the Difference It’s no secret anymore that inbound marketing can have a huge impact when it comes to generating leads, prospects and customers, but it’s also important to understand that there’s quite a bit more to it than aimlessly creating content. Content marketing should be well researched, based on a solid foundation of SEO-rich keyword research with high average monthly search volume and is best shared through multiple social media platforms in conjunction with being published on your company or personal website. Additionally, you should develop a content strategy that focuses on targeting different customers at various stages of the buyer’s journey. Here are the stages of the buyer’s journey, Parqa’s demand activation funnel, and the recommended content approach for each stage: Attract: This is the equivalent to the top of the sales funnel, where you’ll want to provide content that builds brand recognition and raises awareness so that your prospects learn that you have the solutions they need. In the end, the goal is to acquire their contact information so you can begin to nurture them into leads and customers. Engage: At this point, you begin creating content aimed at prospects and leads that are familiar with your brand to help them learn more about possible solutions. Keep in mind, it’s important to implement sound SEO practices both on-page and off-page in order to boost the rankings of your website within Google’s search results pages. The higher your rank, the more people will visit your company’s webpage. However, when they get there, customers should find rich content that fulfills their quest for information and leads them to a solution. Again, the goal is to get them to opt-in by providing their contact information. Nurture: At the nurture stage, consumers typically know about their options and want more information about making a purchase, whether that be by requesting a quote or a free consultation. Marketing automation, a form of email marketing, is the perfect tool for this stage. Maybe the customer came to your site and liked what they found, but in order for them to come back and convert, they must be delicately nurtured with even more relevant content and calls-to-action. This is where automated emails come in, which remind customers that you’re there and that you have a solution for them. Using software like Constant Contact, HubSpot or Emma can help make building an email marketing strategy easier. Convert: By this point, we are at the bottom of the sales funnel, where leads are looking for specifics about purchasing and are ready to convert. Content types that fit in well at this stage could be recommendations, testimonials, and case studies. At every stage calls-to-action are essential. You should always find ways to make direct appeals to your prospects such as, “Ready to learn more? Get in touch with us today!” or “Download our free guide to learn more about how we can help your business.” Content should be customized to fit the consumer’s needs in order to get them to convert into customers. Building and Distinguishing Your Brand with Strong Content and Thought Leadership Most likely, there are dozens of brands, if not hundreds of brands out there selling the same or service that yours does. With a well researched inbound marketing and SEO strategy, you can help distinguish your brand through thought leadership and amplify its presence through carefully altering the technical structure of your website. Together, SEO, content marketing, inbound marketing and thought leadership can transform your brand. At Parqa, we’ve helped countless companies go from less than a hundred website visitors a month to thousands of website visitors per month, thousands of social media followers, and hundreds of qualified leads. It’s essential that your company create a unique brand identity that expresses its values. That way, when your future clients turn to the web to seek out information and solutions, they’ll find credibility

Tomorrow's Online Marketing handles these applications quite a bit differently than other internet marketing businesses. We put research first.

The Role of Creative in the Future of Digital Marketing

by Chris Peterson @ Parqa

One of our key tasks as marketers is to be creative and find ways to generate interest and demand in our products and services. Creativity has been essential to marketing success long before the internet or digital marketing came about. Creative has always been a key factor in standing out in marketing both online and traditionally, but as online-targeting becomes increasingly sophisticated, consumers now expect the online world to be cutting-edge. Relying on a fixed formula is risky and, as technology becomes more advanced, your approach to digital marketing will need to be smarter, more creative and better informed if you want to have a chance of standing out. Many digital marketers have abandoned innovation in favor of “playing it safe” but, for those who hope to build highly effective digital marketing plans in the future, creativity will play a leading role in their development and execution. Here’s why creativity has always been important, and how it will become increasingly critical as a tool for achieving success in digital marketing in the future. Why Creative Is So Important Today’s users move fluidly between devices and channels and expect a seamless, engaging and fun experience. At any given moment, every user is rapidly taking in several pieces of information that they have to assess when deciding whether or not to award their attention to anything. Creativity already plays a vital role in breaking through, making an impact, resonating and inspiring the customer to give you their attention. However, it will play an even bigger role in the future when it comes to generating real engagement that leads to conversion. The fact is that we oftentimes get caught up in the work and analysis we do to ensure the right product is promoted to the right segment, but sometimes we forget that there’s a person at the other end of our promotion.? Microsoft recently did a study that measures the “dwell” of different digital marketing campaigns. According to a Regroup article, “dwell” refers to the amount of time people spend with a given piece of creative for a product or service and, “the higher the ‘dwell’, the higher the engagement and the more likelihood of purchase.”? The fact is that more creative, engaging online ads lead to higher “dwell” and, thus, more successful brand campaigns in terms of searches, traffic to the brand site and engagement at the brand site. Targeting Consumers Creatively As consumers encounter increasingly better-targeted messaging at higher volumes, it will become critical to strike a balance between technology-driven targeting and creativity to stand out. Marketing Land columnist Peter Minnium wrote in a recent article that marketers tend to “get so caught up in the potential of technology and data to optimize the delivery of an ad to the right person at the right time in the most efficient manner possible, that they often lose sight of a fundamental truth: the ad creative has to be good, or it’s all for naught.” His observation is spot-on. Creativity will be critical when it comes to both how we target future audiences and what we display to them. According to ComScore, data show that half of a campaign’s impact on sales is due to the creative strength. By activating customer data and leveraging deep data insight like psychographic information, you can cut through the noise to provide real value to customers in the form of a highly personalized ad that is both relevant and useful. Creating a More Compelling User Experience Marketers are accustomed to targeting consumers by demographics, dividing them up using broad variable such as age, gender, geographical location or ethnicity. Although these metrics are important and deliver results, marketers can’t afford to rely on demographic data alone in the future, as they will miss a huge opportunity to increase audience engagement and risk delivering generic messages that appear irrelevant. As targeting becomes more sophisticated, consumers expect the messages they receive to be increasingly tailored and personalized. From the marketer’s perspective, achieving success requires getting creative with targeting and understand the customer’s personality, motives and action-drivers at a deeper level. Targeting can go well beyond where your audience lives and what they do to become even more granular and specific. With social media, people share their common values and interests to create digital communities of interests that advertisers can leverage to creatively build advanced, personalized targeting the drives action. Inform Your Marketing Strategy with Data-Driven Creative With insights provided through analytics and data management platforms, you have the ability to more effectively reach different audiences by segmenting them into groups and tailoring custom creatives to increase the impact for each specific group, according to the Make Thunder blog. Here are a few types of data that you can use to creatively segment your audiences and customize each ad’s messaging, according to Make Thunder: Behavioral Data: Targeting based on a user’s previous web browsing behavior across the web. Placing a cookie on a user’s web browser allows you to collect various behaviors such as websites visit, pages viewed, clicks, downloads and videos watched. You can then group behaviors together into segments and target them with tailored messages. Contextual Data: This related to the content viewed by the user. On-page content and keywords displayed on a page are captured. You can “use contextual data to target a consumer’s present web behavior and align ad messaging with the content they’re viewing.” Psychographic Data: Psychographics provide insight on the “why”– what’s driving the purchase decisions of your customers. This includes personalities, beliefs, values, interests and lifestyles. Psychographics get into the “psychological aspects of consumer behavior, while helping to paint a more detailed picture of who your target audiences are and what motivates them.” Geographic Data: Geographic data simply provides information on “where” your customers are. When you need to target specific regions, or tailor promotions for a local market, geographic data is key. By combining numerous types of data, you can build unique audience segments based on data driven creative tactics such as

Your content should connect with your reader. Ideally, your target audience will see your content, read through it quickly and come away with new, actionable information they can use to improve their personal or professional lives.

This is called “Content Amnesia.” Here’s how to fix it: How Memorable is Your Content? Research suggests that people forget up to 90% of all content they read. This isn’t nearly as far-fetched

When was the last time you purchased a product from a website? If you’re like most people, you probably placed some kind of online order relatively recently. Now here’s the million dollar question: Did you buy from a store you were already familiar with, or from a retailer you’d never purchased from before? If a customer has already had a successful transaction with a brand, they’re far more likely to make additional purchases in the future. Trust is a key element of any successful online business.

Top 10 SEO & SEM Insights

by Parqa @ Parqa

Nick Noble, Director of SEO and Inbound Marketing, recently participated in a panel discussion at the Business Marketing Association’s “How to Happy Hour” event. Nick was one of four search experts on the panel discussing SEO and SEM Strategies for businesses. Below, Nick shares insights on 10 of the most common SEO and SEM questions for building your business strategy: 1. In your experience, what separates SEO from SEM? SEO (search engine optimization) is a part of SEM (search engine marketing). SEO is the optimization of your website in the effort to rank well organically within search results. SEM includes SEO but also includes the paid advertising strategies that appear in search results (text ads and PLA – product listing ads). The efforts of SEO focuses on organic traffic, while SEM includes all traffic from search engines. 2. What are the key benefits of implementing SEO and SEM strategies, and how can it be used to complement an overall marketing plan? There are many benefits of implementing SEO and SEM strategies and they can not only complement, but lead an overall marketing plan. If you have a product or service that is highly searched on the internet, then search engine marketing has potential to lead your marketing efforts.? In these instances, instead of trying to create the demand for your product or services, you are targeting individuals who already know they want/need your product or service and are currently looking for it. 3. When starting fresh with SEM/PPC for a company, what process do you take to build out the account structure? Often, but not always, I start by identifying what I call the “money pages.” These are the pages that are going to send the paid traffic from our ads. They are usually product or service pages that align with the business goals.? I use a single money page for individual ad groups and typically create campaigns based on the sites structure or marketing objectives (budget also plays a big role in campaign structure). 4. What are a few ongoing optimizations that could be executed within the PPC account to ensure optimal performance? Negative keywords… Typically we are looking to reduce our CPA (cost-per-acquisition). At a consistent level of spend, two of the most effective ways to decrease your AdWords CPA are: Decrease Cost-per-Click (CPC) and Increase Conversion Rates. Read this blog post I wrote for more information on this:?Two Ways to Decrease Cost Per Acquisition in AdWords. 5. Is there a difference in targeting mobile vs. desktop? How can we use that in our optimizations? Yes. Ad text, ad extensions, landing page experience, etc. vary between mobile and desktop. Also, it important to understand the user’s intentions and experience on the different devices. 6. My company is doing a complete website redesign. What are a few things we can implement to ensure our new site is optimized for search? Use 301 redirects! If your site URL structure is going to change on your new site then make sure you redirect your old URLs to your new URLs. These should be mapped out on a page to page basis.? There’s lots more I could talk about here, so if you want to know more feel free to ask! @lookingfornoble or nnoble@parqamarketing.com 7. How do you analyze performance of your SEO and SEM efforts? What do you look for? Depends the business objects and who you are talking to about it. Typically CEOs want to hear about revenue, leads, CPA, ROAS, etc. not traffic levels. It also can be a headache if you get them focused on things like individual keyword rankings or CTR. I should probably write a blog post on this. 8. Many times, a realistic test budget for a new account is almost always north of what a company wants to spend. How do you approach that conversation with clients or higher ups in the company? How do you determine a test budget, and what would the duration of that test be? Do your research and use the data you have to come up with projects. This will help you validate the test budget. Here’s an example:   9. What are some free tools available for anyone looking to rank higher in Search? Google –has multiple tools. ?Google analytics, AdWords keyword and display planner, Google Search Console, Google Trends, Google Page Speed Insights, Google Structured Data Testing Tool, and Google itself. ?A few others that can be very beneficial: SEObook, Moz/ Moz Bar, SEMrush, Raventools, Screaming Frog, etc. have limited versions or free trails. Answerthepublic.com, Keywordtool.io, ubersuggest.io are free keyword research tools. 10. What is your top tip for anyone entering the world of Search? Always be learning – the world of search is constantly changing and evolving, therefore, as search engine marketers, we must too. Whether it’s staying up to date on the latest trends, following industry thought leaders, or learning from a past project, it is key to never stop learning. Also, be willing to test new theories and ideas and learn from their outcomes. Oftentimes, it takes creative thinking and going outside of the box to really move the needle.

What to Know About Real Time Google Penguin 4.0

by Chris Peterson @ Parqa

Last week, Google confirmed the Penguin 4.0 roll-out, leading digital marketers and webmasters around the world to wonder how Real Time Google Penguin will work and whether or not they need to change their?SEO?approach. With this update, Google is going to make Google Penguin part of their Core Algorithm, according to an official Google statement. This means that webmasters no longer have to wait years for a Penguin update to salvage the rankings of a website. Now, Penguin will recognize changes you make to your website in real time, making it easier and faster to overcome penalizations. Penguin is a specific algorithm signal, first launched in 2012, that is one of 200 unique clues and signals relied on by Google to indicate what you could be searching for. This includes everything from keywords?and?content freshness?to region and PageRank. Penguin is Now in Real Time The biggest impact of Penguin 4.0 is that Penguin is now in real time. Prior to 4.0, sites affected by Penguin were periodically refreshed all at once?– a process that?could take years. While many of Google’s algorithms were able to quickly recognize when a webmaster significantly improved a site, Penguin needed to be refreshed in a more manual sense. Now, Penguin’s data is refreshed in real time. What does this mean for you? Changes will be visible much faster and will likely take effect very quickly after Google recrawls and reindexes your page. Google’s statement says that Penguin is now also more granular, devaluing spam by “adjusting ranking based on spam signals, rather than affecting ranking of the whole site.” Google’s Penguin filter used to work by identifying and penalizing websites that it deemed spammy, specifically sites that engaged in black-hat SEO through buying links designed to boost search engine result rankings. Websites that triggered the Penguin filter were penalized and saw their rankings drop dramatically–sometimes disappearing from the SERPs completely. The solution was to find and clean up all the bad backlinks, but even after all that work, recovery only was only possible after the next Penguin refresh occurred, which could take years. No one knew exactly when Google would launch a new Penguin update. However, with Penguin 4.0, we should see recoveries happening faster. A Chance To Recover Those who have spent time cleaning up bad backlinks since the last Penguin update are both relieved that their websites finally have a chance to recover from penalization and hopeful that they will see improvements in their traffic sooner rather than later. Some have reportedly already started seeing recoveries. After all, Penguin 4.0 is supposed to update in “real time,” right? As the leader of an agency, I’ve had to deal with the impact of penalizations brought on by the first Penguin update first-hand. One April 24th, 2012, the day the first Penguin update was rolled out, one of our clients saw their organic traffic virtually cut in half instantly. Why did this happen? Because they juiced up their site with junky backlinks. Since the our partnership with this client began last year, our SEO specialists have been working to clean up the site and sift through the backlinks. After disavowing hundreds of bad links, all we could do was wait until the next Penguin update to see if our work actually paid off. Looking at the analytics dashboard, we still haven’t seen a significant jump in traffic yet. A day after Google’s announcement, it was revealed that sites with spammy links will no longer be demoted. Instead, spammy links will be devalued so as not to affect the overall site rating. Essentially, Google will ignore these links , which means that we actually don’t need the disavow file for Penguin 4.0. However, Google says that disavow may still be used to help it identify spammy links faster. Penguin 4.0 will essentially disavow links on it’s own. Google will now devalue spammy links automatically and believes webmasters will be happier because of this. If a site happens to have spammy links pointed to it, it will no longer be penalized as a whole by Penguin, as would have occurred in the past. However, the site could still potentially go down in rankings if the links helped the site to gain higher rankings to begin with. Keep in mind that it may take time for the Google’s algorithms to devalue spammy links pointing to your site. The bad news:?digital teams working under the assumptions of the previous Penguin update spent hours?disavowing hundreds of links. The good news: Penguin 4.0 will eventually make that easier. If your website is currently penalized by Google Penguin, it may still be worth taking the time to clean up your backlinks, especially if they helped you achieve higher rankings in the first place. Google will now take your work into consideration quicker?and you won’t have to wait for a Penguin refresh. A More Granular Filter Along with refreshing in real time, Google Penguin 4.0’s filter will penalize websites with unnatural links more granularly than before. As I mentioned above, Google Penguin used to penalize whole websites when detecting spammy links, but now, Penguin devalues spam by “adjusting ranking based on spam signals.” This means that instead of the entire website being penalized, spam will be filtered out of the equation. Ideally, this should reduce the amount of work webmasters need to do to overcome the penalties brought on by the first Penguin update. For example, Google can now penalize/devalue a domain, a sub-directory, a group of keywords or a single page. Even if only certain pages were connected to bad links, the old Google penguin demoted website rankings dramatically. While the latest Penguin update brings a lot of change, Google admits that the roll out will never actually be complete. Google crawls the web on an ongoing basis and changes its algorithms continuously. If you’re concerned about when you will start to see changes in your search engine result rankings, it may take a few weeks for Google to recrawl and reindex your

Gear Up your Facebook Ads With a Mobile-First Mindset

by Chris Peterson @ Parqa

If you plan on creating social media ads via Facebook for your business, you have to think mobile first. Smartphone and tablet use now makes up 60% of digital media time, according to Comscore. The days of desktop dominance are now over and mobile has quickly risen to become the leading digital platform. What’s driving mobile’s relentless growth? According to Comscore, it’s ultimately a result of app usage, which makes up over half of total digital media engagement. This doesn’t mean that I suggest eliminating your focus on desktop users completely but in 2017, it’s a best practice to think mobile first when you create a Facebook advertising campaign. Why You Need to Have a Mobile-First Mindset According to Mark Zuckerberg, mobile users are 20 percent more likely than desktop users to go on Facebook on a given day. And according to research, mobile advertising on Facebook produces better results than ads that appear on the right-hand column or for desktop-users only. The bottom line: if you aren’t creating your Facebook ads for mobile, then you’re missing out on a massive chunk of potential leads. On average, click-through rates on sponsored stories are 12 times higher on mobile devices when compared to desktops. Recently, Facebook revealed that mobile advertising revenue represented approximately 84 percent of overall advertising revenue in 2016, a big jump up from the 76 percent achieved in 2015. ?If there were ever a time to take advantage of Facebook’s mobile advertising opportunities, it’s now. To do this, you need to create mobile-only ads. Top Benefits of Mobile Facebook Ads Vs. Desktop Ads Given how many people access Facebook through mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, it makes sense to invest heavily in mobile ads. Still, you may be wondering how the effectiveness of mobile ads compares to standard desktop-user aimed ads. Here are the ways that a mobile-first Facebook ad mindset benefits you compared to focusing on desktop users only: Users check their mobile feed more frequently Both the frequency and duration of mobile use is on the rise, along with use of social media apps. On average, smartphone users check their various social media accounts up to 14 times per day, according to IDC. Within that, checking the Facebook news feed is the top activity for 77 percent of users. Shockingly, 44 percent of Facebook’s most active users never even touch the platform via desktop. Engagement Boost Another reason to think mobile-first is that mobile ads typically bring in higher engagement numbers, such as click through rates and goal conversions. Overall engagement tends to be higher on mobile ads simply because people tend to like, comment and share more on their phones. This is vitally important to keep in mind when creating ads. Keep your copy short and sweet, include a call-to-action and create a beautiful landing page for them to arrive at and you will see results. You can get even more granular with ad targeting When you add in additional layers, you can be even more precise with your targeting. Particularly useful for reaching mobile users are Facebook’s “Local Awareness Campaigns”, which ensure mobile users see a relevant ad for your business whether they are at home, on the go, or visiting from out of town. You can even know if a user access Facebook via mobile while he or she is near your business–you can even determine whether or not the user was delivered the ad or stepped inside your physical location. Facebook’s algorithm is prioritized mobile over desktop Most people choose to start Facebook ad campaigns on both mobile and desktop news feeds. However, from there, Facebook chooses which one is better and for most business, the mobile news feed outperforms the desktop news feed. Facebook’s algorithm will begin almost exclusively running ads there. But should you stop advertising to desktop users all together? The short answer is no, although I recommend allocating more resources for mobile. This infographic recently created by the Online Marketing Institute reiterates these benefits and dives even deeper into why Facebook advertising works so well: Source: Online Marketing Institute Get Started with Mobile Minded Facebook Advertising Compared to other channels, Facebook Ads are going to be among the most effective at driving leads for your business in 2017 and beyond. Facebook’s growth has been tremendous, with over 1.18 billion daily active users, 600 million instagram users and over a billion users on messenger. However, the truly fascinating piece of data is that globally users spend 50 minutes a day on average with Facebook, which is far more than any other tech property. To take advantage of this, Facebook has subtly shifted towards solutions that benefit B2B midmarket companies, according to HubSpot. Facebook’s ad solutions will help you grow today, but also set your business up for future success. From video ads and messaging ads to Instagram ads and even virtual reality ads, there are a variety of ways to deliver your message via Facebook. If you’re looking to get started with Facebook ads, it can be a complex process to determine who to target, create landing pages, create effective copy and know how much money to pump into the campaign.

Local SEO: What’s New for 2017

by Clayton Johnson @ Clayton Johnson SEO

The internet moves pretty fast. That’s probably a pretty obvious observation, but it seems especially appropriate as 2017 marches forward. Local searches have changed significantly -- and in just the past few years. Remember searching for a local business not even five years ago? You’d search using phrases like “car wash in Boston” or “pizza place near Los Angeles.” Today such long, specific phrases probably seem unwieldy and needlessly complex. You can find a location, including directions, just by entering one or two words into your mobile device. You might even be able to conduct a search using nothing but

Is Pinterest the Right Platform for Your Brand?

by Clayton Johnson @ Clayton Johnson SEO

Social media is an important part of any successful SEO campaign, but many marketers focus too much on the wrong platforms. Facebook and Twitter are social media giants. So I understand the temptation to spend most of your energy focusing on them. At times, however, Facebook and Twitter are too large for their own good. Sure, you have the potential to reach a large amount of people on these platforms. But the competition can be pretty fierce on these sites. Plus, just because you’re reaching a large audience doesn’t mean you’re reaching an audience which is necessarily eager to buy

Annoyed of Facebook Advertising? Here’s How Facebook Ad Targeting Works

by Karen Feder @ Parqa

Source: Full Tilt Marketing Facebook: Some people love it, some people hate it. It allows you to stay in contact with people from all different phases of your life, while also being one of the fastest news outlets we’ve?ever encountered. Thanks to Facebook ad targeting, being a business and needing to make money, your Newsfeed is also full of ads. More often than not, we hear, “These ads are so annoying.” “They aren’t relevant to me.” “How does Facebook even think I’d be interested in something like this?” What I’m here to tell you is that YOU do have power to change what types of ads you see. A Brief History of Targeted Online Advertising Before we dive into how Facebook’s ad targeting works, let’s start with a brief history of targeted online advertising. Since the 1990’s, targeted advertising has been part of the internet experience. Many of us remember when surfing the web used to mean navigating through a torrent of unwelcome pop-up ads; when digital advertising meant flashing banners and random irrelevant sidebar ads. 1995 Display ads started becoming increasingly targeted, as advertisers became more interested in targeting specific consumer demographics. In 1997, we witnessed the explosion of pop-up advertisements, which many consider the most hated advertising technique of all time. In fact, the original developers have apologized for creating the underlying code that made them possible. 2000 Advertisers turned to paid search and pay-per-click, which are still widely used today. It wasn’t until around 2006 that digital ads became hyper-targeted in the way they are today. Social media platforms saw their user bases grow rapidly, giving marketers a new way to reach younger internet users who mostly ignored banner ads. 2006 – Present Advertisers have continued targeting consumers with relevant social ads, rather than bombard them with large volumes of ad content. It is now the standard practice of online advertisers, particularly when it comes to Facebook and other social networks like Twitter, YouTube and Google+. The goal is to deliver an ad experience that feels personalized but not aggressive. How Facebook’s Ad Targeting Works It’s important to understand how Facebook’s ad targeting works. Facebook allows advertisers to target based on device, location, demographics, interests, behaviors, as well as different advanced targeting methods. At the click of a button, anyone can create Facebook ads to encourage users to ‘like’ posts, install apps, visit other websites or click on a call-to-action. When you create a profile on Facebook, you’re required to enter information about your age, religion, education, political views and favorite movies, music and books. Building your profile helps your friends get to know you better, but what you might not be aware of is that Facebook uses that same data to deliver a personalized ad experience. Here are some of the key metrics advertisers use to target you on Facebook and other social media: Location – comes from the location stated on your timeline and verified by your IP address Demographics – based on age, gender, relationship status, education, and job shared directly in Facebook profile Interests – identified by keywords linked to pages you like, apps you use, information on your Timeline, and other ads you’ve clicked on Behaviors – things you do directly on Facebook (i.e. – watch videos, click ads, pages visited, etc.) that show intent, travel preferences, etc. Behavior data for targeting is also compiled by offline activity provided to Facebook from trusted third-party partners. Custom Audience – targets email lists that are tied directly to your Facebook login Retargeting – keeps the recent site(s) you visited in reach directly on Facebook As you can see, there are a wide range of data metrics that businesses utilize to target an audience. With this information at their fingertips, businesses can determine the proper ways to target their audience without being “that annoying ad” that we’ve all come to resent. Who Should Invest In Facebook Advertising? What types of businesses are best suited for advertising on Facebook? Who should invest in Facebook Advertising? Facebook is a difficult channel to directly sell product without having any other type of nurturing campaign in place. According to Facebook, the businesses that have the most success in advertising on their platform are businesses looking to get people to sign up/fill out a form for something and those businesses trying to build brand awareness. For example, a software company interested in generating demo requests or trials might use Facebook ads to drive traffic to a landing page with a form to fill out. We have found that Facebook generally offers a less expensive way to get impressions and traffic to a site when compared to other advertising channels such as Google or Bing. Facebook Advertising Can Complement SEO Efforts While SEO is more of a long-term effort, Facebook advertising can be complementary by driving results more quickly. There’s really no other medium like Facebook advertising where you can get quite as granular when it comes to how you’re targeting certain types of users to drive conversion. With the analytics capabilities of Facebook’s Ad Manager, you can gain insight into new content ideas, microsites to build and promotions to offer your customers. Once a business verifies that Facebook advertising is the right channel for their campaign objectives, it is important for them to determine the best variables that will help them to get in front of their target audience with the appropriate messaging while also remembering that people interact differently on social media compared to other sites online. When was the last time you updated your Facebook profile? For most people, the answer is “when I setup my profile….3, 5, 10 years ago.” Think about the quotes you put it, the music/artists you typed in, favorite movies you allowed the world to see. Since our tastes, styles, and lives change over time, it’s no wonder we aren’t getting relevant advertising coming our way. Ready to Invest in Facebook Advertising?
