- Potential to increase sales and revenue
What are the pros and cons of social media advertising?
Pros of social media advertising:
- Extremely affordable and cost-effective, relative to many other mediums.
- Ability to launch campaigns and drive conversions almost instantly, with very little lead time.
- Detailed audience targeting, from age, location, and income bracket, to interests, travel habits, and other traits.
- Advanced retargeting criteria to advertise to individuals who have previously interacted with your brand, both on or off that platform.
Cons of social media advertising:
- The range of campaign targeting and budgeting options can be daunting, and simple mistakes can quickly prove expensive.
- Can be time- and effort-intensive, especially for small businesses.
- Rich analytics can be difficult to interpret and action usefully for untrained users.
