FaceBook Ads

I was wondering if any of you have tried using the ads on Facebook. They seem to be just like google but it looks like you can narrow your target areas down a little better. Your thoughts on this.

Thanks,

Cyle Hostedler

i disagree with google you can narrow your target location done to a ten mile radius thats pretty small. plus google has a large number of views and with google its click your ad go directly to your website. with facebook from everything ive seen its click your ad go to your company's facebook page then click a link to your website thats another step which mean and place for potential clients to loose interest.

i do not see myself using facebook ads in the near future. people are on facebook are there for a specific purpose, and in and out, looking for a wham bam thank you man type experience. I do not think the ads really make it into the peripheral view. With the internet being so mainstream and the technology behind it generally taken for granted, my feeling is the value is not worth the cost and hassle and the expectation. Then again.................... i joined twitter 4 weeks ago. I included my website name and YouTube links in my signature, i post regularly to craigslist and include my name url and contact number in every email and text message i send. Speaking of which.. Please watch my paynes tractor forks YouTube vid. Those guys at paynesforks.com did me a real solid and offer a superior product to the landscape community.. and i could really use the extra view on YouTube.

You could probably run ads if its something those kind of people will use and click on.

Maybe mascara, condoms, aftershave, frozen pizzas, or Geico insurance.

I'd almost be embarrassed to advertise landscaping or pruning on Facebook, unless they started to produce some kind of online magazine.

But with such a Myspace-like atmosphere, it looks like a waste of time for a professional landscaper to advertise on.
