  • Complexity with the traditional purchase. Search and how it works…..and now Social Media interactionUser’s path will cross between search and social as they journey down the funnel
  • GroupM Search Whitepaper shows a relationship between search and social media. The purchase process is much more complex. 48% of all consumers use search and social to determine a brand in a purchase. 70% of them feel more confident after viewing search and social. Whitepaper: http://groupmsearch.com/researchPress release: http://groupmsearch.com/press-room/press-release-22411
  • In this study social media includes FB, Twitter, Youtube, blogs, user reviews and more.However FB stands out
  • 600 million users worldwide, with high interaction rate (daily returns)
  • Worldwide stats
  • Just in USA, 7X google
  • Only if you have a solid search strategy, have a fb fan page and fb strategy to maintain fans (keep them engaged)
  • Ads are contextual based on interests, demographics, etc
  • 2 types of marketplace - can drive to a website or to a fbfanpage.Main difference is you can’t have social interaction with website.

  • 3 factors to determine if Ad will show:Bid Price – Facebook suggests bid range “based on how much other advertisers would have been willing to pay for the same target audience”Quality – The Ad quality is calculated on such factors including the positive (Like) and negative feedback (X) that an ad has received from usersPerformance – Past CTR performanceFor bid price, take the suggested and slowly decrease over time ( we found that our ads had a cpc at about $.30 to $.50 less than suggested)For quality and performance – best to go with many multiple ads with different demographics and age groups. The wider the age group, the more data you’ll collect and better CTR.
  • This is your advantage of using FB vs. any other CPC based marketing buy. The targeting is in depth and people must log on to FB, so the targeting will apply to entire population of users.The more filters you apply to your targeting, the less of the universe you will reach, so Demo-targeting only ensures you reach the full target demographic while running Demo-targeting with Likes & Interests lets you fine tune your reach with the demographic. We have found that CTR performance of demo-target with Likes & Interest is almost double that of demo-target only, but the universe size of demo-target with Likes & Interests is dramatically smaller than with demo-targeting only.FB Case Study: Wedding photographer case study for that target women who changed their relationship status to engaged. $6000 of advertising turned into $40,000 revenue.
  • Out of 4 ad units, created 16 ad variations with general ad targets, age groups and interests. Monitored the campaign and adjusted the variations, paused the lowest performing ads
