  9. 9. Success<br />“Advanced Telecom Services – I didn't really think of Facebook as a site where people are ready to buy something, but it has proven me wrong. The great think about the advertising is that I can pinpoint the audience that I want to speak to – young adults who work in the advertising agency business. We are seeing a conversion rate that is 87% better than that of traditional pay per clicks on Google and Yahoo.” <br />Bob Bentz<br />Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA <br />advancedtele.com<br />“The Positive People – Within the first 15 minutes of our ads running we had over 30 clicks to our website. We get a consistent stream of subscribers and. Facebook has expanded our market nationally in a way that no local print magazine could. The best part is that we can control our budget and spending according to our needs. As a start-up, we are so relieved that there is no contract or financial commitment. It is cost-effective and produces real results! My business partner and I even have competitions. We each design an ad and see who gets the most clicks! Who thought advertising could be this fun?”<br />Indi Avila <br />Orange County, California, USA <br />thepositivepeople.com<br />
