We have seen wonderful response to using Facebook. Although we use it more for brand awareness. Depending on what you are marketing you may get immediate leads. For us it is more about getting our name out there, and when they do learn about us on Facebook they see we are engaged with our customers and see the wonderful reviews from our current customers. This gives us some leads now for sure but it will yield many many more down the road.

Hi Josh,

Facebook allows you to run ads for brand awareness or to get leads. It depends on the campaign type that you choose to run and how you set up the ad. You are more likely to convert your leads, if you have an attractive offer that gets your prospects to call in an request your service. Facebook is highly effective with targeting your customers locally.

I even noticed the "paying for likes" part is mostly dummy accounts, set up to boost your numbers but the people who "liked" are not even local or relevant.

SO this is not a solicitation, just a response.

The short answer is simply yes...

The long answer is; it isn't done right for everyone. You know that feeling of going into a cold pool slowly? Every moment you feel like you need to get out, but you see everyone else having a blast in the pool without you. But its so cold, and you feel every moment of it, and so it just hurts... Well if you tiptoe into Facebook ads, with no experience, trying to piece it together... it's a little bit like that. You can make it in the pool and acclimate..but it hurts more. And... (more)

its awful in my opinion,

It works great when you use it, but then if you stop paying for ads your reach drops dramatically from where you started before advertising.

It's a lose lose given that our sponsored ads did not at all generate customers or sales at all.

It doesn't make sense for some businesses and it certainly depends on the campaign you run. Did you do this for the co-op?

This is unfortunate you had a bad experience. The truth is that the development of your ad funnel and customer acquisition sequence needs to FIT your service. Certain offerings are very difficult on Facebook because of the platform, and who it holds. Other offerings sell like wildfire.

I use proximity marketing and carry a little device around. It generates leads for me without lifting a finger.
