Is Facebook ROI Real?

Today’s topic is inspired by a comment on an obscure blog post I just happened across. The comment, in support of the view that Facebook ads are a scam, was, “[..] as FB member yourself, have you ever called or bought anything through one of the ads?”

Well that set me back a bit. Because for me, my immediate answer is no. And this is a common refrain heard from those who have been unsuccessful with their Facebook ad campaigns.

So, in this episode of Kim Snider Live, we will explore the question … Are Facebook Ads A Waste Of Money? Do a few people just get lucky? Or lie?

Turns out … it is a VERY instructive exercise …
