Five Ways to Win at Facebook Advertising for Photographers #Phototips

Jenny Johnston is the Group Marketing manager at 3XM & Photovalue and regularly teaches photographers about the power of social media advertising. We've asked her to summarize some of her top tips when it comes to Facebook advertising.

As a digital marketer I really believe in the power of online advertising and in particular the power of Facebook advertising. I've seen first hand how beneficial this can be for photographers in their business; delivering real value for money and positive ROI. Facebook is such a massive data powerhouse and they make a lot of their user data available to advertisers.

It's easy to target ads to people based on things like age, gender, location, demographics and relationship status. Essentially, you can use the information you have about the people that visit your studio to your advantage to effectively target potential customers with relevant ads.
