You've already developed your website and created a marketing plan. Then you and your team implement the plan and do your best to attract and engage customers. Eventually, you need to evaluate your sales efforts and check if you are making a profit.

Are you satisfied with the results or the current situation? 

From our experience, it's worth investing in Facebook Advertising if you want to grow or maintain a seven-figure income business or even more. 

Hubspot.com defines advertising as:

"Advertising is all about creating messages to persuade and motivate someone to take action.
Good advertising is designed to be extremely influential, memorable, and, at times, risqué. It breaks through the clutter and noise of everyday life, disrupts the viewer’s attention, and demands their focus."

If you want to stand out from your competition, amplify your current business strategy, and if time is of the essence for you, then you need to look closer at Facebook ads.

What results can you achieve? Some of these could be to build brand awareness, generate leads, collect email subscribers, or increase revenue.

Why advertise on Facebook? Let's look at these impressive data.

  • 1.66 billion daily users and 2.5 billion monthly users.
  • The average user spends 38 min daily.
  • It is the third most visited website after Google and Youtube.

Given these facts, you can't ignore the importance of advertising on this platform to expand your business. Also, there are currently more than 7 million advertisers on the platform, proof of how effective Facebook can deliver results.
