People Think There Is Only Google for Advertising, but There Are Opportunities Beyond AdWords

When people think of advertising online, they often think Google, Google, Google. But there’s also Facebook, Facebook, Facebook, and Instagram, Instagram, Instagram. I’m an expert on both Google and Facebook / Instagram advertising and can help you find the best online venue for your advertising message.

It’s true: the answer to effective advertising is not always the Big G. Apart from any other considerations, advertising on Google can be expensive and there may be better options. They call it “Google Ads,” formerly known as Google AdWords. Yes, Google has a massive audience, but then again so do Facebook and Instagram, as well as Bing.

That’s precisely why you need an expert in online advertising like myself who does understand all the “ins and outs” of it and can tailor your advertising so that it is shown to the right audience in the right places at the right time.

Exactly the same thing applies to advertising online. If you sell golf balls you want to target golfers, not just every Tom, Dick, and Harry. So you would target your Facebook advertising, for instance, to groups interested in playing golf. There is probably not much point in advertising your golf balls on the Mumsnet website, but that would be the place to advertise if you sell baby clothes.

Yes, there is a lot to consider when you are advertising online, but I know how to do it profitably.
