But it won’t be enough, and this is where social media advertising comes in. You will have to dig a little in your pocket to create attractive advertising campaigns, but the investment will be worth it when you see the results.
That is why in today’s blog we will tell you different ways to advertise on different platforms, whether they are networks or directly on Google. If you are a community manager, take good note of some of the ways to do advertising campaigns.
Advertising on social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn
Facebook is the social network par excellence, and, therefore, one of the best places to advertise. One of the best options that Facebook offers you is the possibility of segmenting your audience so that the campaign reaches exactly who you want it to reach. You can select very specific characteristics such as age, sex, or education, and specify specific interests and behaviors. In this way, you can define a target audience according to your needs.
Another thing that you can control in Facebook campaigns is whether it is aimed at fans of your page or people who have visited it but are not yet a fan, or simply people who do not know you but who will surely be interested in doing so. The range of combinations is very wide, and if you know how to properly calibrate it and interpret the results, the benefits will come. One tip, try putting videos in your advertising campaigns, they give more good results than static images.
Advertising on Twitter is not yet as powerful as on Facebook, but it is beginning to emerge and we must take it into account. Twitter has its own segmentation system, which we can combine with Facebook. On the one hand, you can segment by users and in this way reach the followers of your competition so that they start following you too. And on the other, there is the option to segment by television. This social network is very successful in commenting on television programs at the moment with the corresponding hashtag, and we can benefit from it to reach people who tweet live.
To create ads on Twitter there are Twitter Cards, which will stand out from the rest of the tweets. You can add text, image, and call to action to Video Animation Maker and make it an attractive and effective campaign.
Advertising on social networks has also reached Instagram since it is part of the giant Facebook. To do it you will have to have your Instagram account necessarily linked to Facebook. If your target audience is on this social network, take advantage now that advertising on Instagram is a novelty. The competition with other brands is lower than in other social networks, so it’s time to campaigning here to highlight and reach your fans and those who are not. Squeeze all your creativity into the quintessential image social network and surprise your followers with great ads.
Advertising on LinkedIn
It is clear that LinkedIn is essentially very different from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, but in advertising, on social networks, we cannot forget about it. Being a network focused on the world of work, advertising is also designed for this and the cost per click is quite expensive. But even so, the campaign can be very profitable if you focus it well. The campaigns on this social network can be personalized with images and your sales pitch, and you can also promote the content that your company has published, such as articles and tips.
If your goal is not an end customer but a company, this is your social network to promote your advertising campaigns.
Other means for your advertising campaigns
The omnipotent Google is the first site where users search for what they want to find, therefore being present and well visible will be essential. With Google AdWords, you can create your ads with a title, a couple of descriptive lines of your business, and a visible URL. Try to be clear and concise with your text so that everyone knows what you are advertising. And choose the keywords well to get more or less relevance in Google positions.

Video for campaigns
If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much will a bunch of pictures be worth? Video is the trend for advertising on social networks because it is more immersive and intense than a static image. You can create videos for your Facebook or Instagram campaigns, but the best platform for this type of advertising is YouTube. They will be very cheap with CPV bids (cost per display), and Google AdWords offers you all the tools to create them. Whether you are a community manager or not, try advertising with videos, you will attract twice the number of users than with static image campaigns. We guarantee it.

Mobile ads are increasingly relevant because they are the way to reach potential customers anytime, anywhere. Google AdWords will allow you to create campaigns aimed at smartphones, and you can even choose if you want it to be only for iPhone or for Android. The contents will have to be responsive and the message short and direct, and using the call to action. User behavior on the mobile phone is different than on the computer, take this into account when thinking about your advertising campaign.
