Facebook is big. As the largest social media platform in the world, it has more than 2.2 billion active users, 66% of whom log in on a daily basis. It is estimated that there would be 3.16 million Facebook users in 2018 – which is almost half of Singapore’s population.
With such a large user base, ignoring Facebook marketing in Singapore can be a costly mistake for most marketers and brands. Your customers and potential customers are using Facebook. If your business is not on it, then you are missing out – BIG TIME!
Facebook marketing, when done right, can communicate your brand’s core message and personality, attracts and engages both new and existing customers, and converts fans into customers. Here are the benefits of Facebook marketing:
Be found by current and new customers
As mentioned, if your business has a presence on Facebook, then it is another place for your existing customers to interact with you, and increases the chance that potential customers will find your business.
Target people by their demographics
One of the most exciting features of Facebook Ads is the ability to target the ad to the type of person you want to market to, based on their age, gender, location, interests and many others.
A lot of small business owners are hesitant to advertise on Facebook because they are not sure what kind of results they can expect, and what is their return on investment (ROI).
However, Facebook provides you with all the tools and data to let you measure the success of your advertising campaign in real-time. You can easily track the activity from your ads and even how many conversions you are getting.
Drive traffic to your website/blog
Facebook marketing can increase the reach of your blog contents, thereby increasing exposure and awareness for your business.
Increase your SEO ranking
Facebook marketing can improve your search engine ranking due to the social signals it creates. Engagement statistics like shares, likes and comments work in tandem to make you more favourable in the eyes of search engines.
While Facebook can generate massive revenue for your business, ads require unique strategy and attention to actually perform, especially since the algorithm on Facebook is ever-changing. To excel in this landscape, not only do you have to come out with interesting contents and campaigns on a daily basis, you also need to be able to:
1. Be on top of trending articles and viral contents
2. Monitor current campaigns, lead-generating landing pages, social ads etc.
3. Conduct research on the latest happenings in the industry
4. Answer customer’s enquiries and handle any unfavourable feedbacks
5. Use web analytics software to monitor performance and suggest actions for improvement
These are only part of the job scope. Once you have a first-hand experience on Facebook marketing yourself, you would recognise the value and amount of work it would take to run a successful Facebook page.
