Never used it (yes, I'm too lazy for setting up such sophisticated campaign), but I heard tons of success stories from people who used it. But you should be very careful or just skilled to not flush your campaign budget and get good results. Please share your experience here if you're going to try.

yes I have. we set it up for branding. that is we were looking to get name recognition so that when someone did a google search later they would recognize our name and increase our click volume. we were not planning on getting a direct return on clicks to the web site. However, after about 6 months we started seeing a good return on investment directly from the ads. we are now increasing our ad spend on Facebook.

No one had

I did it myself for 6 months. Very poor quality customers. 1000 enquires per day 90% from weirdos wasting my time.

I got bad reviews because i responded slow. I got bad reviews because i was too expensive. I got bad reviews because i did not responded at all. I gave up.

Then i was contacted by this crazy dude with hundreds of campaigns. He offered me 2 months of free ads and free management just to sign me up. I said why not? Big mistake. Same bloody story. Nothing has changed. Window cleaning for 3 bed house - 75 euro. I offer you 9 euro. No way. I offer you 9.75 euro. 3000 enquires later and 1-2 jobs, i gave up. You need to stay in the front of the computer 24/7/ Forget about doing any work.

The work is there big time if you are willing to do it for nothing. Works great for brands & Eco products. Many people have serious cash with Favebook ads but not for services

You have to set up conversion tracking correctly and create custom audiences based on your website traffic. Not many people can do this as it requires more advanced facebook marketing skills.



SEO is amazing for getting new business

Well, maybe optimised better could do a bit better but the type of customer spending time on social media, is not the type you want for your business.

Few of my competition are doing facebook ads. They are very busy. But it low quality work and complaining customers.

I just think there are better ways of getting work

Yes, we have had some success in the past with Facebook Ads, but I would not recommend doing it on your own. It is really easy to waste money and I'd typically suggest finding a good expert to work with if you can afford it. YOu also need to be working with more homeowners than businesses

Strange why some sites do not allow you to access with adblock. The problem may be that these sites contain a lot of advertising and advertisements, they make a lot of money on it, for some sites advertising is their only income.

Of course, with Facebook you can address a lot of people, meaning your advertising can be seen by thousands of people. So your success is guaranteed. Google Ad works well. I would say as good as Facebook. But beware that many use adblock for chrome. I think you've heard what that means. That is, they block your ad and it is not possible for them to see it. You risk fewer people seeing it. It's not a good thing, but that's it. There's nothing you can do about it. Especially if there is a good adblock like in this ranking https://thinkmobiles.com.

I've done a bit of research on paid advertising and I'm not sure FB is best for cleaning type services unless you have a promotion/offer that really stands out. You are trying to grab people's attention from their newsfeed scrolling when they may have no interest in your service. If you were trying to sell some sort of unique product that no one knew about, maybe getting exposure via FB ads would help. For something like cleaning, you want to put yourself in front of people who need cleaning. So, paid ads on Google (or other search engines) or working on search engine optimization may give better results so that you show up for people searching for exactly what you are offering.
That's my $0.02

Agreed 100%.

You may find that Google Ads are more expensive compared to Facebook Ads, but that is simply because of search intent.

When someone searches for a "cleaning service + location" in Google, that person is ready to buy and if the right website comes up, being a local service with a BIG contact number on the front page, then that person is pretty much a done deal once they've called you.

However, with Facebook Ads, as John mentioned, there's no intent, and targeting is completely different, so yes, you're trying to put your ads in front of people who could be potentially interested in your services, but it's definitely not the same as Google Ads. This also explains the reason why Facebook is cheaper compared to Google, and thus attracting more advertisers.....Arguably, it's easier to use as well.

Winners never quit, quitters never win.

Hey! For me, I guess creating an apt content can help you get the job done right. I won a bakery store and couple of people gave positive reviews about the store which helped me get some more customers. I also share posters in related Facebook groups. Sometimes I get responses and sometimes I don't. I think it's the matter of luck and how well you create the content.
