Facebook as an advertising platform can be difficult for some marketers to wrap their heads around. If there is no literal “interest” in Facebook’s targeting interface some marketers will wipe their hands of the platform and declare, “My customers aren’t on Facebook” and go back to AdWords and AdCenter. #facepalm.

Facebook Targeting

One group of people marketers would love to get their ads in front of are the affluent. There is no way to target strictly job titles, incomes, or property values on Facebook unless you think outside the box.

First, think about what Facebook asks the users to disclose:

  • Where you live
  • Education
  • Workplace
  • Religion
  • Political Views
  • People Who Inspire You
  • Favorite Games
  • Sports you Play
  • Sports Teams
  • Athletes
  • Activities/Hobbies
  • Interests
  • Music
  • Books
  • Movies
  • Television
  • Languages

Identifying what your affluent target market would reveal about themselves when prompted by these questions is the secret sauce.

In reality, Facebook marketing offers a very different value proposition from search marketing, and results-driven marketers can still get a much better return our of search than they can out of social.

Being an international search guy, I’m often asked which is smarter: developing a multilingual strategy around a language or a country. Both strategies have benefits and challenges, but before you commence your program, make sure you know exactly your path. It’s much easier to get it right in the beginning, rather than re-engineering your site after the fact.

Although every need and budget is different, here are some benefits and challenges associated with each tactic.
