Instead of building a database of users that you can contact at will, you are essentially paying Facebook to build a list of people that you can then advertise to.

Customers that had come through one of these social touchpoints, filled out the customer consultation form at a higher rate than other customers, at 179%. They also completed their first payment through the company, at a higher rate of 732%.

"Quit Using Social Media For Your Business…Become More Social" Article source: http://www.socialknx.com/2013.06.26.quit-using-social-media-for-your-business/ A social business thinks differently.

    11. 11. “When I started using Twitter and Facebook for my business in 2011, I would have never thought it could grow my business the way it did. But that year, I increased my cleaning company‟s sales by 49 percent!”. Source: https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140311221041-26846686-how-i-boosted-my-sales-49-with-social-media
