Let’s talk about the one thing that fuels the online marketing machine: Traffic.
Without it, you simply can’t make any headway in the digital space.
Great content alone won’t matter.
Fancy conversion funnels won’t matter.
When the SEO landscape was less competitive, it wasn’t such a difficult task to drive traffic to your website.
Things have changed.
Search traffic is now more competitive than ever, even in extremely niche markets.
The encouraging news is:
Social media has matched, and in some cases, surpassed search engines as a means to reach a large and relevant audience.
They’re not the only ones – many brands count on social media to get eyes on their websites.
In almost every case, Facebook dominates.
Knowing this, I recommend that all marketers get really serious about promoting their businesses on Facebook.
But, wait a second.
Hasn’t that already happened?
There are about 65M active small business pages on the platform.
So, is the Facebook ecosystem any less competitive than search? Not exactly.
What’s the answer? That’s exactly what we’ll cover in this article.
