But Wait: Facebook Won’t Work For Me!
Are you thinking your target audience isn’t on Facebook? … Maybe because you’re a B2B marketer?
You should think again.
Here’s why: With Facebook reaching 1.65 Billion users with 1 Billion active every day, your target audience is on Facebook, regardless of who you are targeting. The only challenge is finding them (but with the proper tools, like those we mention in today’s episode, you can do it).
If you’re a marketer using direct mail to generate leads, and you’re not considering how Facebook can make your investment return better results, you’re leaving the door open for your competition to figure this out first. Don’t let this happen.
If you’re a service provider, like a printer, agency, or other direct marketing company, listen to the techniques described in this episode to incorporate into your customer campaigns. At the very least, bring your clients these ideas and see if you can incorporate one in an upcoming test. You won’t regret it.
