Ever heard of Facebook AdWords? Social media has become an integral part of business growth today. If your business does not have a presence on social media, it may lose out on customers. This is the reason that you find even the smallest of brands trying to leverage social advertisements and engagement to boost their reach and conversions, especially on Facebook.
Many businesses today find themselves asking; do Facebook ads work? Do you know that as early as June 2017, Facebook was able to attract about 2 billion monthly active users? That is to tell you how effective Facebook is. It is clear that Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites in the world at large.
Until recently, so many advertisers viewed Google AdWords and Facebook AdWords in an adversarial way. Both companies’ rivalry, often displayed through technology and media materials was taken as evidence that both platforms were in direct competition with one another. Although both platforms are often positioned as competitors, and nothing could be further from the truth in a practical sense.
So many business owners and marketers out there want to adopt the use of Google ads or Facebook ads, in order to achieve maximum visibility, in increasing leads and sales and finding new customers, adopting different strategies that align with the functionality of both platforms and as well seeing a remarkable return on their advertising spend.
Long before Facebook offers marketers and advertisers a place for them to promote their services and products, there was AdWords Google service. It was widely adopted that it becomes synonymous with PPC marketing, and then came Facebook. So many people tend to debate on the supremacy of each platform’s strengths in order to enhance your marketing efforts.
