There is certainly still merit in running pay per click (PPC) advertising campaigns, in fact, it remains one of the top ways to increase web traffic to you site. However, digital advertising options have certainly expanded with the development of social ads and the high ROI that they can also offer businesses of just about any size.

The following social media sites offer advertising options:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • SnapChat
  • YouTube

While the social advertising options do vary depending on the platform, the benefits available are similar and all of them offer some unique opportunities for businesses looking to boost their digital advertising strategy. A social media expert can really offer some insight into which platforms would work best for your business and how to run effective and dynamic ads.

Here are some of the things that Measure Marketing clients like best about social media ads:

1. Targeting

While it may seem like there is nothing too unique about targeting when it comes to advertising, the targeting options offered via social media are impressive. Social media collects incredible amounts of information about people and then allows businesses to target their ads based on:

  • Interests – sports, skills, other pages or people they follow, keywords
  • Behaviour – website activity, past purchases
  • Custom targeting using email lists, phone numbers or other customer data
  • Lookalike audiences – target people similar to your current customers

Because of the specific and deep knowledge social media provides, businesses are able to create and deliver ads that are that much more interesting and effective.

2. The Price is Right

Pay per click (PPC) advertising offers strong results at a realistic price for most businesses. But what we can’t ignore is the effectiveness of social ads at a price that is often even better than PPC. Social media platforms also offer great flexibility in terms of setting budget limits, turning ads on and off easily and customizing whether you are looking for impressions or only engagement.

3. Tracking and Real Time Data

Once you set your social ads in motion, you can see how effective they are right from the get go. Each platform offers real time tracking for each ad as well as reports and analytics that are extremely useful for marketers and social media experts.

Opportunities for conversion tracking also exist. By adding a snippet of code to the pages on your website you can track conversions from the ads you are running.

4. Connect with the Mobile Consumer

Mobile devices continue to gain more time with consumers each and every day. Social ads are your best bet to attract and convert those users into interacting with your brand or buying your product and services. Social media ads are also seen as less intrusive and more relevant to today’s consumer – which is the consumer that is never too far from their mobile device!

If you are reading all these benefits of social media ads and wondering why you haven’t had any success, know you are not alone!  While there are so many benefits that businesses can gain from running social media ads, it does take some knowledge and skill to effectively execute ads that will produce results.
