To get the conversions you want, we use the following Facebook marketing features and benefits to quickly start seeing the desired results -
So, how do we get started?
Now that you know what to expect, what are the next steps to get this ball rolling? Below is a very basic step-by-step outline of what comes next, so that you understand the process every step of the way when setting up your business on Facebook!
Step 1: Create a Facebook business page
After making sure that your business logo and the cover picture is to spec and looks great on your new page, it’s time to get writing! The page needs to include all of the important information clearly in the info tabs, and be really obvious about what services it is that you are selling so your viewers don’t have to work very hard to find out if they are in the right place. You have the option of adding your opening hours, link to your website, location, and of course – how to get in contact with you. Using the skills of a clever copywriter here will make sure your brand language is sharp, attention-grabbing, and includes all of the keywords required so that search engines can find you!
Step 2: Creating the perfect content
Posting regularly, at least 3 times a week, to begin with, is a step that has to be planned and coordinated so that you don’t end up spamming your customers with the same information over and over. It can be hard to know what to say first, without spilling it all at once and having nothing to say later. The goal here is to pique interest, keep the content quality, and get people engaging with your content and wanting to learn more. Deciding on what you want to say first is the hard part, but it becomes organic and easier as time goes on. Again, the use of professional content and/or copywriters can help optimise your posts.
Step 3: Using Facebook's marketing tools
Utilising the advertising features of Facebook such as sponsored Facebook ads, auto-scheduling, CTA buttons and fully using the Facebook Ads analytics service so you can start measuring the popularity and results of your posts.
Step 4: Consistent management and monitoring engagement
Now that you have a working online business, you have to keep creating new content to keep it going. Measuring the results, the highs, and the lows of any campaign that is run through your Facebook marketing gives you insight on how to better engage with your potential customers. Even the slightest of adjustments can have a large impact on your results.
Why use Facebook ads?
There are many reasons to join the 3 million business advertising on Facebook right now, besides the obvious audience size of over 1 BILLION daily active users.
The Targeting Features – The limit to the targeting features of Facebook ads almost doesn’t exist. Businesses can zone in on ideal users based on their locations, demographics, behaviours, age, gender and the list actually goes on!
The Opportunity of Time Spent – We just have to look at ourselves to know how much time people spend on social networks, most people spend a lot of time browsing and scrolling during the day. The average social media user spends roughly 50 minutes on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram every single day. That’s a lot of potential time to get in front of your client base!
With that aside, let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of Facebook advertising.
Pros and cons
Types of Facebook ads
With more than 1,300 targeting options, 15 objectives, 6 main ad formats to choose from – it is not surprising that Facebook ads can look startling to business owners. Without a professional team handling the best combinations of the above for your business, your ad strategy will probably be a little lackluster.
Ad objectives and ad formats are two completely different things that sometimes get roped in together under the conspicuously vague ‘Facebook Ad Type’.
Let us clear that up for you
Facebook Ad Objectives: Your goals
Facebook Ad Format: How your ad actually appears creatively on the page
Facebook has created three types of Facebook ad objectives that act as a guide for your goals. They all serve a different purpose and fall into these categories: awareness, consideration, and conversions.
Based on where you are at with contacting your customers, building awareness, building consideration, or creating conversions – your ads can intelligently target the customers depending on where they sit in the marketing funnel. Within those 3 main objectives are 15 more micro-objectives. So as you can see, it’s a pretty in-depth and impressive process.
Let’s now take a look at the various Facebook ad formats!

Lead generation and direct linking
Facebook is not only popular because of its large consumer base, it is also popular due to its ingenious use of marketing features that benefit businesses trying to find their ideal client list. Lead generation is the process of building interest in your products or services by reaching more people, and allowing them to fill in a mostly auto-filled ‘Instant Form’ with their contact information and some answers to customised questions you, the business owner, can request of them. This can include asking for their emails in exchange for a coupon that will be directly sent to them (because who doesn’t love free stuff and a good discount?)
Lead generation is massively beneficial because gaining willingly-given contact details gains you access to more leads for other marketing solutions including email campaigns – and because it was willingly given by your users, it doesn’t feel intrusive. You have a fantastic, viable lead when someone already interested in your services, gives you more information in order to get in contact with them.
Interested customers = viable sales leads.
Someone who doesn’t need your services will not get this far in the process and therefore are removed from the potential pool of people you will be contacting further. Easy!
Even if you don’t opt to pay for Facebook ads, the ability to link directly to your website from any Facebook content is a ridiculously handy feature. People click once and they are on your website, and potentially go on to buy your services. The easier it is for a customer to get to you, the easier it will be to turn conversions into sales. Customers don’t want to have to work hard to find the services they want to purchase, so make it as easy as humanely possible for them to take the actions you want them to. Facebook has allowed seamless movement between their platform and the websites of businesses, making it EASY for their users, you won’t know how much that benefits your brand until you try it!
