But if you are interested in getting Google and Facebook working together for you, here is what you need to know.

Using The Search As The Strategy

In most cases, people turn to Google in search of a solution to their problem. So, how do you find keywords that people use to search for your products and services?  If you aren’t sure, now would be a great time to start a Google Adwords account. You will get access to their Keyword Planner which is a free resource that will provide you with all of the information you need, such as average monthly searches, trends, and competition for search words related to your business offerings.  By focusing on specific long tail keywords, you will really be able to tap into an audience with a high probability for making a purchase.

Tapping into how people search for the products or services you offer through Google, and which Google ads push them to take action, enables you to find customers looking for your products. You can then gather insights on those potential customers and proceed to follow up with Facebook ads.

Effective marketing requires you to be seen and seen often.  By making Google and Facebook work together for your business, you are creating a follow up strategy that will help ingrain your business into the minds of your customers.  It is interesting to note that this relatively new strategy has been reported to be more effecting at online lead generation than email marketing.

Facebook Follow Through

Once you’ve gathered the valuable data from Google, make sure you create a long term strategy using Facebook Ads to really engage and convert that audience.  Use Facebook’s custom audience ad tool to deliver more relevant, highly targeted messages. By selecting targeted criteria that will limit who will see your content, you will be reducing wasted opportunities that occur when your ad shows to the wrong person. Not only will this improve the results of your ad campaigns, but it will also save you money!

Targeting niche groups of people on Facebook, in addition to your primary audience, will help you create new channels of traffic and conversions.  Once you’ve narrowed down your niche audiences, be sure your ads are appealing to them by using:

  • The specific words, slang, or expressions that differentiate this group from others.
  • Using pictures and quotes that appeal to the unique mindset of the audience.
  • Share your thoughts and stance on issue related to their views and opinions.
