How to develop a winning Facebook Ads strategyDid you know that 66% of ALL Americans use Facebook? Not only are they using it, but they're using it a lot. The average American spends 58 minutes per day on Facebook. From a marketing standpoint, Facebook is a goldmine. It's filled to the brim with active users (a.k.a your future customers), and those users are engaged. To add a cherry on top, Facebook has a robust ad campaign creation tool that lets you get hyper-granular and personalized with your marketing campaigns.

Unfortunately, Facebook isn't only saturated in users; it's also filled with your competitors. In fact, over 93% of marketers use Facebook as part of their daily social media marketing strategy, including both paid and organic posts.

Posted by Mary Ann Hegvold on February 13, 2019


What social media platform is best for your business?As the popularity of sharing just about anything and everything on social media sites continues to skyrocket, according to at least one elite source, the "slow and painful death of print" is comically referred to as how "Internet Killed the Newspaper Star." Back in the day when they actually played music on MTV, this was a clever and ironic twist on the first video ever aired on this channel, "Video Killed The Radio Star" performed by the Buggles way back in the eighties. (Yes, I can remember that far back.)

With today's more tech-savvy crowd swiping on their smartphones rather than reading a newspaper or flipping through the yellow pages, businesses absolutely have to look at the many many social media platforms. Choosing the right platform for social messages is an important first step. Let's look at some of the most popular social media platforms and who is using them, according to recent statistics.

Posted by Tabitha Young on December 18, 2018


Why your business needs a website, not just a facebook pageIt amazes me how many companies do not have websites -- or have essentially ignored their website -- and have focused their efforts on building a Facebook business page.

Five Tips for Running Facebook Ads that Produce Results

Posted by Mary Ann Hegvold on May 3, 2017


Facebook Advertising.jpegFacebook advertising can play a critical role in your overall marketing strategy, whether you're marketing to consumers or you're a B2B marketer. 

That's because you don't have to wait for someone to search for you, or phrases related to you, like you do when advertising on Google Adwords. Facebook will show the ad to those who you've defined as a "good fit" -- people who fall into your targeted personas. This makes it a great place to advertise if you need to:

  • Help people find you because they don't know to look for you
  • Drive more sales -- local or in-store -- to people in your target audience who aren't necessarily searching for something related to your products right now.
  • Get a larger audience for your Facebook posts
  • Collect leads
