Facebook Ads Management
Facebook — along with it’s other owned & operated platforms like Facebook Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, and more — gives businesses the ability to reach extremely large audiences across multiple devices and platforms using one simple online advertising tool: Facebook Ads. On top of an extremely large reach (matched only by Google’s reach), Facebook Ads allows businesses to target their marketing and advertising in such a way that is unmatched anywhere else.
Differences Between Facebook Ads vs. Google Ads
Those with some experience in online advertising should already know about the powerful effects of Google Ads and Search Engine Marketing (SEM). Although there are some similarities between the features available on Facebook Ads vs. those available on Google Ads, there are vast differences between the two ad platforms as well. These differences include;
Platform Differences Between Facebook Ads and Google Ads
When it comes to Google Ads, most of us think of the listings that show up at the top of a Google search. However, Google Display Ads also gives you the ability to promote your business across a nearly infinite number of partner websites around the web. We also can’t forget about Youtube where 5 billion videos are watched every single day. On the other hand, Facebook Ads mainly allows you to promote on the Social Media platforms themselves. This covers both the regular websites as well as the mobile apps for Facebook, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram. On a smaller scale, Facebook also allows advertising across its partner websites.
Ad Unit Differences Between Facebook Ads and Google Ads
The exact type of ad that users will see also vary between Google Ad platforms and Facebook Ad platforms. Most of us are used to the “text only” search ads that we see when we search around the web using Google. If one wants to use more imaging in their ads while using Google Ads they will have to opt for their Display or Video platforms, as those platforms allow image banners and/or video ads. Facebook Ads, however, always require high-quality imaging (image[s] or video) to go along with the ad-copy in their ads, so there is always an ‘imaging’ component to FB Ads. On top of that, videos are also allowed and highly encouraged to be used along with Facebook Ads as well.
Targeting Differences Between Facebook Ads and Google Ads
Targeting is a major factor of any marketing campaign, especially when it comes to digital marketing online. There are some major differences (and similarities) between the targeting capabilities that of Facebook Ads vs. Google Ads. When it comes to Google Search Ads, targeting is completely based on the keywords searchers use to perform their searches online, and there is an auction for the cost-per-click bidding of those keywords. Google Ads also has some demographic & interests targeting when it comes to their Display and Video ads, but the demographic targeting on these platforms based on user history instead of actual user data input like those on Facebook Ads.
Facebook has the unique ability of having it’s users specifically state their demographic information in much more official detail. Facebook Ads is one of the only platforms online where businesses can target users accurately and specifically on their age, gender, location, and much more; marital status, job title, employer, interests, etc.. Although Facebook Ads also has a cost-per-click bidding auction, their targeting is much more demographics based, and this demographic targeting is very accurate as well.
The Bottom Line on Social Media & Facebook Ads
Social media can be a powerful tool to keep current clients engaged in order to grow word-of-mouth as well as grow repeat business. It can also be a great way to increase your current client base, especially when you bring social advertising like Facebook Ads into the picture. Social media and Facebook Ads management is not a passive initiative as it takes consistent work and management to post often and manage effective/efficient ad campaigns.
