Facebook Post VS Facebook Advertising
It is important to understand what Facebook advertising is and what it is not. After just a few minutes on Facebook, you are bound to encounter posts from your friends, posts from businesses you follow, posts from groups you belong to and sponsored posts, better know as ads.
As a business, it is important to have a presence on Facebook to establish credibility and to serve as another platform to engage and interact with your clients. Creating daily posts, posting events and sharing posts are all important aspects of creating a strong Facebook presence but they are not Facebook Advertising.
Facebook Posts are created on your business page and will display in your timeline of your account. This post will only be shared with people who “like” your page and only about 2% of those people will actually see the post. These posts do not cost anything, though they can be boosted for a few dollars they do not have all of the control and targeting as paid Facebook ads.
Ad – Newsfeed
Above is an example of a paid Facebook Ad. This ad runs in the users newsfeed and can be easily identified as an advertisement by the heading sponsored as circled in the image. These post can be targeted to very specific audiences based on your brand.
Facebook offers businesses a paid advertising platform to reach new customers and engage with current customers. These ads go above and beyond the capabilities of Facebook posts. Facebook Ads can appear in News Feed on desktop and mobile, and in the right column of Facebook on the desktop view. These paid ads on Facebook can be used for a number of campaign objectives. These objectives include Page Likes, Clicks to Websites, Website Conversions, Event Responses, and Offer Claims.

A/B Ad Testing
Ad testing is a fundamental part of our campaign creation and strategy. A/B testing, also called split testing, is a method in which we test ad headlines, body copy, images and calls to action against each other. Using this method we are able to continually refine the ads to both better engage your target audience and create trackable conversions.
Custom audiences can be built based on your current or ideal clients. From these lists we can create lookalike audiences to expand the reach of your brand and services.
