How To Get Results From Facebook™ B2B Ad Campaigns

Breaking Bad Cartel Twins

[In the accent of a cartel gang member]

“You must be crazy man! B2B advertising on Facebook? You ain’t never gonna win.”

You've heard it - you might have even tried it. I bet you failed too, right? Because the world of B2B advertising on Facebook can bring you great riches and grow your business, but if you don't know what you're doing - you may as well kiss your ad spend goodbye.

I ain’t gonna lie - B2B advertising on Facebook is tough. You need to be either an ads genius or a little bit crazy - either way, you need balls of steel and be willing to go all in.

I'm not talking about driving a bit of traffic to your website, or even getting a touch of brand awareness - I'm talking about HARD LEADS. No fluff. I get people who want to do business with you.

These are names, emails and phone numbers. They need your business and are putting their hands up.

You’ve heard the tales of someone spending £5 a day on FB and making a return of £200,000, right? Wrong. Not in the world of B2B!

B2B leads are always going to cost. You have to work out what you are willing to pay per lead and whether that's realistically achievable on Facebook. If you know that you are going to convert 10% of leads into customers and that a customer is worth £3,000 - what will you pay to get a good Return On Investment? I would also say that leads are generally cheaper to acquire on Facebook than they are with Google Adwords.

If you are already using Adwords, you can leverage a mixture of Adwords and Facebook. This is where you will retarget certain website visitors on Facebook - making your Facebook marketing a lot more cost-effective. Even though you will have the main cost still acquiring cold traffic from Google and if you are in an expensive industry/niche, those clicks are going to be pricey.

Another tactic is to start your advertising on LinkedIn and retarget on Facebook. Again, you will have your bulk cost on LinkedIn.
