When it comes to reaching new customers to buy your products or services, Facebook -- and its 2 billion monthly users -- can’t be ignored.
That said, Facebook ads can be intimidating and costly. And if you’re a side hustler, you likely can’t drive results since you don’t have the money or time to understand the nitty-gritty of online advertising.
“Too often, people are just cranking money into ad spend, without thinking that it will result in sales,” says Amanda Bond, founder of The Ad Strategist. “A business needs to have a sales process that works, meaning turning attention into customers in a repeatable way.”
In fact, Bond doesn’t want entrepreneurs to spend a single cent on Facebook ads, at least not until they have a solid plan in place.
