With more and more content being created, along with the ever-expanding elements being added to all social media platforms, attention spans are becoming shorter. A long form, text ad is not longer something that will grab most of the user’s attention and will most likely be scrolled past and ignored. Facebook Ads need to be eye catching and are a cost-effective way to market your business on social media. You can even create a ‘lookalike’ audience if you run Ads on FB, so you’ll be targeting similar people, giving you the chance to expand your audience beyond your targeting.  
 
 
If you own a business, it’s often expected that you have at least one form of social media. Whether it’s on a site specifically tailored to the more professional side of things such as LinkedIn, or one that is used mainly for interaction, connection and personal updates like Facebook, your business should have an online presence.

Following tips from online ‘gurus’ and using companies that haven’t proven that they themselves know how they can help you is not likely to give you success. Instead go for a company who has tried and tested different methods themselves and found the solution to increasing engagement and growth and social media, so they can help you make positive progress online.
