Hi Nima, It really depends on your product. The key to social media is the shareability of your posts. If people don't share you will just be boosting endlessly. When other sites talk about your product or your posts that helps in your SEO effort. Your social media properties should lead the audience to your website. That is where the conversion to money happen. Social media marketing is not the silver bullet. Yes, it is very much measureable that is why it is costly. You still need to complement it with other forms of non-digital marketing. Hope that helps.

Assuming you are in B2C - Facebook and Instigram are not effective in B2B - you should find a seminar/training class before you go very far. If after that you think you are ready to do it yourself, start slow and use tools that will tell you about. You can blow a ton fast and get zero. However if you think you need outside help, these classes will help you sort out the bs. Before you start anything though be clear eyed about what your product/market fit and absolute clarity about the individual personas of your target. Build detailed lists of personal attributes including income/interest/age/politics (if even they are uninterested). This will often give you the answer. Do not let FB or Google internal people do his for you. They are not on your side.

My personal experience has not been positive with using paid adverts on Facebook. I got a lot of reach and page/post likes (depending on the campaign objective), however none of those likes led to conversions till date. When I saw the profiles of the people who liked my page or post based on the advert, I have a strong suspicion that they are fake profiles.


The other side of the story could be that I was not using social media marketing appropriately, especially when defined the target audience. I have tried many variations all with the same results. I will suggest reaching out to social media marketing experts if you know anyone personally and taking their advise on this
