    I've used FB ads once and did not go too bad but I know I can do better that's for sure.. A lot of testing and tweaking

    How about you guys? How's your FB ads going?

    I've seen this work unusually well for 'wholesalers'; lots more leads than I expected.
    But that a different game, buying cars, not selling... Message is totally different (Ex. get cash today).
    Still though, I did not think of Facebook as much of a 'lead' provider, until I witnessed that for myself.

    For sure! I love Facebook advertising, but I'm also that guy who likes to send an email blast to 12 people.

    The kind of targeting one can accomplish in there is excellent. It is especially powerful when you know your audience. And it get insanely powerful if you know you're going after the 40 to 60 year old crowd.

    That's great Alex.. So do you have a email list? I always hear people say "the money is in the list"

    Absolutely, the money is definitely in the list. Having a good list is extremely important. So many companies out there that sell old inaccurate data.

    My team and I publish Facebook advertisments for car dealers all day, every day. The availability of hyper-targeting individuals located geographically near the dealership is incredible. We can deliver a Camry ad to ONLY people who have been identified through their behavior online as being likely to buy a new Camry. We deliver a custom graphic and compelling sales message and when someone clicks the ad they land on a custom landing page which reaffirms that their vehicle of interest is a smart choice and the dealership is the BEST place to buy it. If you'd like any more information on how we do Facebook ads you can reach out to me directly at [email protected] or check out our website: https://dealerauthority.com/social/

    This ties in great to a post I just made on the Oracle thread. For any dealers interested in learning how to gain access to target in-market shoppers for a specific MODEL not just make, see my post below

    One of our clients had a 6,000% increase in website traffic after starting with the DA social product ONLY. Now, they definitely needed some fresh content and a new strategy, and those results can't be promised to each of our clients, but it shows that our strategies DO work!

    Whether you're using lists to retarget hot leads, running a conquest campaign, or working on your overall branding, FB advertising is worth your dollar.
