    Hi Jenny,
    I have no problems with using Facebook advertising correctly.

    I posted the warning because Jason’s original post said:

    “Am currently looking at running a campaign of sorts through facebook advertising to get more page likes…

    Regulars of FS will be aware that threads about advertinig for Facebook likes are posted regularly.

    I’m sure there are other folk reading this thread who found the warning about advertising for “likes” informative and useful.
    Regs,

    I stand corrected. Yes you are absolutely right about trying to get more Likes. Instead, stand at the window, open your wallet, and let the money fly out. Works just as well…

    Hi Jenny,
    In your area, I’d start promoting this mission critical (and widely misunderstood) Facebook issue to the utmost to justify the need for your specialist knowledge and services.

    JohnW, just because people have problems with something, does not automatically mean that ‘thing’ will happen every time. Yep, I’d say throwing $2000 to grab 20k followers is going to leave you open to spam, to go on a massive like building campaign just for the sake of it isn’t a good marketing strategy and not watching and measuring will cause problems. Yes, there are obviously questions around some of the ‘magic’ of Facebook likes etc….

    But this isn’t proof that this happens all of the time.

    Aa a targeted strategy used in conjunction with a solid online plan and actions, for a newish Facebook page, trying to grab some likes to kickstart your presence can be very helpful. I find evaluating all options available in different situations to be useful in our business – rather than dismissing something off-hand.

    Amber,
    Perhaps you missed these comments of mine in four of the posts above:

    “With respect, I’m not writing off Facebook and I did not say don’t advertise on it.”

    “I have no problems with using Facebook advertising correctly.”

    “Newbies, I suggest you find a specialist who knows what they are doing before you jump into Fb advertising.”

    (To Fb consultants: ) “In your area, I’d start promoting this mission critical (and widely misunderstood) Facebook issue to the utmost to justify the need for your specialist knowledge and services.”

    I’ve tried to make it abundantly clear that I’m NOT dismissing Facebook advertising off-hand.

    There are clearly situations that have arisen which have resulted in wasted money and ruined Fb pages. The thread starter is a self-professed Fb newbie. In which case, I make no apology for posting a warning to him and it seems others who found it intereting. Given a similar thread, I will post similar warning links on FS again and again.

    It seems our discussion should be closed.
    JohnW
