When it comes to Facebook Advertising, most service company owners have a hard time computing the value.

Owners want to analyze marketing dollars in terms of booked appointments, and since booked service appointments rarely originate from social media platforms (at least for now), the value can’t be calculated in terms of Cost Per Booked Appointment.

So why even bother running Facebook Ads?

We recommend Facebook Advertising to service companies that want to build a brand name in their market.

Simply put: If you want to occupy the brain space of your target market, then Facebook Ads are for you. (Facebook Ads are the billboard of our era!)

The good thing is that they’re inexpensive!
