If you’re going to be successful in Facebook advertising, then it is crucial to have a great page for your business to begin with.
Your Facebook page will act as a hub for your business and will provide a convenient way for people to reach you to ask questions, learn more about your brand, or just decide to follow you even if they don’t end up clicking on the advert itself.
But what makes a winning Facebook page? How do you ensure that you will be making the right impression and building a big following? Let’s take a look at some tips that will help…
What is absolutely key when creating a great Facebook page or any kind of marketing material, is that you have a strong brand. This should be used to tie your Facebook page, your website and any other elements of your business together in order to create coherence and consistency across your messaging and to help give your campaign a more professional sheen.
The key to this is consistency. That means that every social media channel you are on should use the same imagery with the same logo and same name and this should also be present on your main website. This ensures that your audience will always know that they’re on the right page and will help to reinforce your brand and improve your visibility and awareness.
Note that your branding doesn’t just mean your logo. It also means having the color scheme for instance and the right imagery for your cover image.
Call to Action
It is now possible to include a call to action button right on your Facebook page. This can be something like a link to your website for example and it’s a great way to ensure that your Facebook page helps you to convert visitors into leads and customers.
While your logo and your cover image should somewhat hint at the topic of your site and Facebook page, it will be the description that explicitly lays it out for your audience. This is important as it can help to sell the vision you have for your business and convince more visitors to hit like and become followers.
Again, the key here is coherence and having a single, powerful message throughout all of your marketing materials, your adverts, your logo and your site. This way, you will hopefully strike a chord with your audience and bring more people on board!
How to use Facebook ads to build a mailing list.
Using Facebook Ads is a great way to sell a product and if you set this up correctly, then you can ensure that you will pay less for each click than you earn from each visitor on average. That means that your advertising campaign will make you direct ROI and you can keep investing more into your daily budget and getting more out of it in kind.
But that’s only one way to use Facebook Ads, which actually have a plethora of different applications. Another example is to use them to build a mailing list and this can work incredibly well when it comes to selling big ticket items.
Work Out Your CLV
The first thing to do, is to work out your CLV. This is your Customer Lifetime Value and it basically tells you how much each lead that engages with your brand is going to be worth to you. The idea is that someone who subscribes to your mailing list is likely to be a fan and therefore is likely to buy a product from you. Moreover, they’re likely to buy multiple products from you. If you have a subscriber who buys 10 products from you over the course of a year, then they’re worth a lot more than they might appear on paper.
In order to calculate how much your subscribers are worth to you then, you need to work out what the average amount each subscriber has earned you so far is. Add up the total and divide it by the number of subscribers. This is your CLV.
Now comes the next acronym: CPA or Cost Per Action. This basically means that you’re paying for a particular action to be carried out, other than a click. You can choose from a variety of actions but the one we’re interested in of course is people subscribing to your mailing list. Using CPA in this way, you now only pay for subscribers, rather than paying for people who click and then may or may not subscribe to your list.
If you have previously calculated your CLV then this becomes a very simple formula for profiting from your mailing list. All you need to do is ensure you pay less for each subscriber than their CLV and that way, you’ll keep increasing your profits over time without any drawbacks!
