Understanding the differences between Google AdWords and Facebook is crucial to marketing success.

Google is the unquestioned king of search engines, and Facebook is the most popular social media platform in the world. While it’s important to invest in your marketing efforts wisely, don’t conflate how these two giants operate. People generally use Google and Facebook for very different reasons, and it’s important to recognize that your tactics for generating traffic on one platform may not work on the other.

1. Different Purposes: Awareness and Intent

Think of the purpose behind Google: people want to know more about something so they search for answers. There is a motive or intent behind every Google search, whereas Facebook curates ads and sponsored content based on users’ apparent interests. Marketers must approach these platforms differently to make valuable connections.

2. Specific Ideas vs. Broader Concepts

When tailoring a strategy to Google, the goal should be to answer very specific questions. For Facebook, it’s more about casting a larger net to a wider audience.

Many marketers create audiences without ever leaving the realm of the Power Editor, but if you want your Facebook Ads campaigns to be truly effective, you may need to go outside those boundaries.

But first of all:

Why are Facebook Ads effective for reaching decision makers?

  • Facebook offers a huge audience with super long reach
  • Facebook's advertising platform and tools offer super-granular targeting capabilities
  • There's an option to target people by job title, position, industry, education and education field.
  • There's plenty of B2B categories (which allow you to distinguish between people who are interested in tourism, and those who work in the Hospitality Industry, for example).

Messenger is evolving into a full blown content platform… and taking on your phone number 

There was a time when asking for a phone number meant something.

It took some courage, it established hope, it was a test of sorts… Would we get a fake? Would the other person answer when we called? Exchanging phone numbers could be the beginning of a fruitful relationship, or of a harassment nightmare. Once people obtained ours, we had no control.

Now Facebook proposes to change everything.

The premise: It´s easier to know a person´s name than their phone number. So why go through the trouble of asking? Not only is that uncomfortable, but using the name as a reference is a more effective way of getting in touch.

Forty-one percent of small businesses in the United States use Facebook.

That equates to more than 40 million small businesses on Facebook in total - an increase of 10 million businesses from last year. Thirty million of these Facebook pages are updated regularly.

The facts don’t lie: more and more businesses are joining Facebook and using it as a marketing tool. If your business isn’t one of these 40 million, my best advice is that you should create a Facebook page today or contact us so we can help you set it up right.

But this post isn’t for businesses without Facebook pages - it’s for the businesses with Facebook pages. With increasing competition, you have to make sure that your Facebook page stays relevant, interesting and engaging, or else you risk losing potential customers.
